“The treaty is signed,” Jansen said, displaying the document that brought an end to the long running feud.
The two factions remained on their respective sides, but silence replaced venomous speech that had defined the conversation for so long. Jansen was exhausted. Peace had taken months to bring about. Councils were convened, representatives from both sides made demands and promises; nothing had come to fruition until the day before.
Terms were agreed upon and the final draft of the treaty, while full of compromise did make both sides of the battle would walk away from the table happy. Jansen made it all happen. His stewardship of the treaty would usher in a new era of progress. Soon, work and accomplishment would return to the now united PTA of Heisenberg Elementary.
