Madeline Geroux posts in Semper Tenebris
Stepping out of the interview room Madeline followed the secretary as she was escorted back to the lounge where they had all congregated prior to the interview. It had been interesting to meet her competition, even more so to discover none were teachers at Abernathy’s looking for a change, it seemed Robert kept his staff happy and loyal. She’d smiled slightly at that thought; he’d certainly made her very happy last night and parts of her started to tingle just a little at the memory.
She shook those thoughts away, now was not the time. Instead she sat demurely, smoothing down her blue/gray skirt suit and hoping that she’d impressed them enough to make the shortlist. Madeline noted that whilst there had been seven interviewees only four now remained and she assumed that because she was part of that four, the appointee would be chosen from one of them.
The interview process had puzzled her, it had been quick and nowhere near as thorough as others she’d attended. She had expected to have to teach part of a class, to perhaps give a presentation but neither of those staples had materialized. It had simply been a fifteen minute face to face question and answer session; unusual for such a large school, but not unheard of from one that was haemorrhaging staff and desperate to replace them as quickly as possible. That worried her somewhat because she wondered what was really behind the facade they had worked so hard to create.
Robert had said that Drayton’s academic record wasn’t anywhere near that of Abernathy’s and that hiring outstanding staff was essential to turn that around. It was an old fashioned school in its decoration and she could see how it must have looked very grand in the past but now it just seemed tired. Being shown around the place had made her question if she really wanted to work here but she knew she needed the money, especially if she was going to move back, there would be a lot of expense in renting somewhere new and buying furniture. Plus there was Robert now and she liked him a lot, they had so much in common, far more than she and her ex ever had and she had a good feeling about their burgeoning relationship.
Tea and pastries was served as they waited and she assumed the panel were making their decision, keeping the four waiting so they could advise them in person and gain an answer immediately. They sat in silence, all clearly eager to find out whether they had secured the position or not and she realized she was just as nervous now as she had been going in to the interview.
“Miss Geroux” The secretary reappeared, “Could you follow me please”
She set her cup down and followed obediently, unsure whether the fact she’d been called first was a good sign or not.
