Prince Handsome sat at the head of a long, (mostly empty) table. "The Council will now commence," He announced, turning to look at Bea Spells-a-Lot, the recorder. "Bea, take attendance of the members present." Bea nodded, readying her pen. Prince looked at the small number of members. "Members of the Council, state your names!"
"Sticks Boom Crash! Present!"
"Jewel Sparkles! Present!"
"Pete R. Canfly! Present!"
"Pillow...*yawn* Featherbed! Present"
"And the others? What of them? Bea?" Prince glanced at her, and Bea looked through the list. "Forest, Storm E, Ace, Spot, and the others of the Council are absent. Their whereabouts are currently unknown." Prince frowned, and slammed his fist into the table. "Then we will simply find them. The news I must tell is for all of the Council to hear."
He turned to the other Council members. "The meeting is adjourned! Go find the other Council members!"
