Rob hurried through the staff room door. "Sorry I'm late, I must've missed the memo."

Thirteen cowled heads turned to stare at him. One, the headmaster he recognised, stepped out of the circle and walked over to him.

"Um, am I missing something here?" muttered Rob, confused.

"This is a private meeting, Rob," replied the headmaster in a kindly tone. "If you wouldn't mind?" He gestured towards the door.

As the door swung shut behind him, he heard the headmaster intone "And the Cost of the New Coffee Machine shall be split amongst the Faithful..."

I guess this is vaguely lovecraft inspired, but I wanted it to be more mired in mundanity than eldritch horror. Just spicing up an otherwise boring life. Still not sure about an appropriate title though.
