Lucy enjoyed a cup of tea while she awaited Shilla return. She had not received information from the lords and Walter about the success of their mission. She ignored her maid, Mrs. Muburg, who stood aside and made no sound. The door opened and Shilla entered. She bowed to Lucy and glanced at Mrs. Muburg standing on the side.

"Ignore her. She does not want to become like Taylor." Lucy told Shilla. Shilla could see the elderly maid made no attempt to dispute the lady and she harrumphed.

"Then I will take responsibility." Lucy said as if reading her mind and Shilla stared. "Say as you please, I will take responsibility." Lucy said and Shilla felt more pressure, instead of feeling relieved. This task, she must not fail.

"Do you understand now, Shilla? That dress is me saying to you to keep your head high. I have never bowed before to anyone. You must make sure they understand, when they see you, they see me." Lucy said and Shilla nodded. Taking in a deep breath, her eyes hardening with determination.
