Was it so wise for Number 1 to instigate so many different Number 2’s? Because
it does seem to always put Number 2 at a disadvantage, seeing that each of them
would require a “settling in” period, if only to come to terms with The Village
and the workings of its administration. But perhaps any such Number 2 would
have been briefed on both The Village, and the duties of Number 2 to be carried
out, and Number 6, so was expected to hit the ground running so to speak. And
between each new Number 2, there
would be a cooling off period for Number 6, affording him a break in his
ordeals with Number 2. It might be the case that Number 1 thought that any
successive Number 2 would be an improvement on his or her predecessor. Unfortunately
for him, and lucky for Number 6, that didn’t always prove to be the case! As it is with the THEPRIS6NER2009 series, there is but one Two,
which means Two is permanently nasty, and affords Six no such break in his ordeal!
