Danny felt that he was five years old as he listened to Mr Bowman’s account of the swearing-in ceremony. Indeed, he had been five when had last seen the parliament at close quarters. His parents were poor immigrants and Danny had gone through a lot.
“Will the ministers assemble by 9 AM?” asked Danny
“Yes. And the swearing-in ceremony starts by 9:30.”
“Are we too early, Mr Bowman?” asked Danny, smiling.
“No, Mr Prime Minister, we are just on time.” said the National Security Advisor as he led the prime minister-elect inside the parliament.

I think this is brilliant 🙂 You can see him as a five year old even going in looking up at Mr Bowman.
