"Hey look it's the cursed kid! My mommy told me that she's a monster."
"Oi you can't take water from that well! Scram!"
"Let's get rid of that monster!" "We will banish the evil demon from the village!"
The shrill sound of the alarm wakes me up.
I sit up, still rattled by the nightmare. I take slow deep breaths to calm myself.
'Drink some water, it'll help you calm down. Loosen up, they're all dead. They can't hurt us anymore.'
I get up and pour myself a glass of water. The alarm is still ringing but I let it be, the sound reminding me that I'm awake. The other-me's words soothe my mind, it's true that those people can't hurt me anymore yet it still reminds of things that I tried so hard to forget.
Let's just get ready for work.
'Ya lets. Surely that woman would make us listen to her boring lecture again if we're late'
Turning off the alarm, I take out my uniform from the wardrobe and put it on the chair. A quick glance at the clock on my table tells me that it's 4:25 am, just enough time for me to get ready.
I make the bed and take the clothes from the chair and leave. Closing the door behind me, I head downstairs to the servant bathroom.
'I've got to say, this bathroom is quite luxurious. At least we can stay clean everyday and enjoy a good bath.'
I agree. This may just be a servant bathroom but it's really a luxury for me. There's no bathtub but that shower feels so good. Also there's the taps, I couldn't have ever imagined that water would come out so easily from them.
'Ya back in the village and mines we had to fetch water from the wells and it was hard to do even with a pulley. Only nobles would have such things.'
True. No use thinking about the past right now. It's best to ensure my survival.
I hang the laundry to dry and give myself one last look to make sure that I'm wearing my clothes properly.
Satisfied, I head to the hall to begin my tasks and lessons for today.
"Good morning Miss Daisy", I greet the maid. She nods,"You are on time. Let us begin today's lesson."
'Ugh, I'm gonna sleep. She bores me.'
Oi oi oi! You said that you'd stay awake today. Don't sleep!
'Fine. I won't sleep. Happy?'
Good. At least I won't have to be bored.
"Today you shall learn how to serve tea for the Young Lady."
"First you must learn about the different types of tea and how to draw out the most flavor from them."
'Shit this is going to be very very annoying.'
Yup. No choice but to learn though.
The whole morning was spent on teaching me about the different types of tea leaves,half of whose names I still don't remember. I was let out only when it was time for breakfast and Miss Daisy reminded me that I still have the afternoon classes with her. I silently curse her for making the lessons so tedious but put on an obedient face in front of her. I don't want to be stuck listening to her boring lecture any longer than necessary.
"Hey wipe the windows faster, I want them sparkling clean in twenty minutes."
"Yes Ma'am.", I reply to the angry woman.
Geez all the maids here are so rude. I know that I have to finish on time, I don't want to miss lunch after all.
'Well they don't like you cause you suddenly became that girl's maid.'
Uh-huh, I know that. At least Miss Daisy is good at pretending to accept me but these bitches can't even act.
Whatever, let's finish this and go eat. I'm looking forward to the food.
I quickly finish my work and go to have lunch. Better stuff myself full cause the afternoon lessons will definitely be a chore.
I'm so sorry for the late release. I have to take some time off from writing as my college entrance exams are going on.
I will have definitely release more chapters after I finish my exams.
