Queenie and Quintus are quartermasters. Queenie quarrels with the job title. She questions how it could be updated. Teachers have found a way around the old titles of Headmaster and Headmistress. They are simply heads. Quartermistress has never been considered and quarter has a different meaning. A quarter is a fourth part. Quarters are somewhere to stay.

Quintus quakes each time they have to move to a new location.
