It was such a waste of food. If it wasn't meant for me, then they could at least give it to someone else. Fiona's face was painted in slight shock.

"But Mrs Ad..." Fiona shut her mouth tight after seeing Housemaid's hard stare. Then under her breath she mumbled, but loud enough for everybody to hear. "Master might not be happy about this."

"Fiona! Watch who you are talking to. I am still in charge of you." lady in black said in arrogant voice.
