Slow News Day: Election Results published on 8 Comments on Slow News Day: Election Results

We saw an Olive Romarin campaign ad last May, then heard some public opinions in October. And now, the thrilling conclusion.

but I refuse to call it until we’re absolutely sure Berry Genêtson can’t win.

Thorn: The election is over! Olive Romarin is re-elected our president.

Leif: Is that . . . okay?

Thorn: Yes! Of course, as a knight of the realm, I faithfully serve any president. And I cannot say to you who I voted. But my lady president has many tens of years of experience. She defends the rights of . . .

Leif: But I heard she wants to start a war with Sønheim, has a deathly illness that she’s hiding with illusion spells, once murdered a puppy, and runs a secret smuggling ring out of her favorite ice cream place.

Thorn: . . .
