Finally. Some alone time. Every since I came back it's been nothing but busy. Its not like im a ruler or something. I left without any problem! This must be the aunt's doing! She just loves to push everyone's buttons. The worst part was I had to see HER on HIS arm. Disgusting. I loathe her so much but I can't seem to get her out of my head!

I can't believe I showed such an embarrassing display to that servant girl. Why wasn't the old hag there too? Why am I getting so embarrassed about this anyway? What was her name? I can't remember.

I can hear her coming down the hall. She better not spill my drink.

She looks around for a table, which there isn't one. Tough luck.

"You're going to have to stand there while I drink."

I can see the fear in her face and I feel a smirk come across my face. It's kinda cute. She finally makes her way to me and stands there as told. I find myself staring at her as I drink. Her hair looked of silky ivory. Her eyes were a pretty purple that would probably shine like the stars. She was a little short and strangely she had the same breasts as Airi. God why am I still thinking of Airi?

"What's your name again?"

"Uh…Artmemisia." You could her voice try not to shake. It was a sweet voice if you had ever heard one.

"How would you like to be my lover?"

The tray started to shake and her face turned to brightest pink. Her fear and embarrassment was amusing.


Raz couldn't help but laugh at the whole situation.

"You thought I was serious? Hysterical! I would never do such a thing to a lowly servant such as yourself."

Tears brimmed her eyes from the embarrassment that I had just given her. Of course, I also spewed my words like poison so that probably hurt her as well. This was really fun. The best part was she couldn't leave because I was still drinking my tea. I can just sit back and watch her crumble. Surprisingly her lips parted.

"You know what? That's not funny! I might just be a servant but that doesn't mean you can be so cruel! You might be part on one of the royal houses but you need to learn manners!"

Shock ran across my face. She slammed the tray on the bed and walked out, slamming the door with her. That has never happened to me before by a servant. I open my door to find her not there, but down the hall on a bench huddled over and shaking. Why was she making such a fuss about this? It was just a joke.

"What do you want?"

"Why are you crying so much? God just stop."

"NO! Because you don't know what manners are and I lashed back I might be thrown back into the streets with no where to go!"

"Duh. Just go back where you came. How hard is that?"

"I DON'T have anywhere to go back to! The orphanage already made it clear they won't take me back."

The orphanage? She was an orphan? I could feel pity for her. Her tears hit the floor like rain. Why do I feel I have to embrace her? To comfort her in anyway?

"You don't have to worry. I won't tell anyone. If you keep crying like this though, I'm not going to lie to anyone if they ask me what happened."

She quickly stopped crying and grabbed a handkerchief from her pocket.

"You spilled tea on my bed."

Walking back to my room I saw her quickly go to work on the blanket and spilled tray. Something about her makes me want to wrap my fingers in her long thick locks and get lost in her eyes. Why?

Lei was in his usual study. Some things never change.

"Lei I need to ask you something."

"What is it? I'm very busy working on Airi's senior project."

Hearing Airi's name hurt. Surprisingly not as much as it usually did.

"That one servant girl. Atmemisia. What do you know about her?"

"This is surprising. You never ask about servants."

He pulled out a small notebook from his breast pocket.

"Seems she was orphaned at the age of eight by some loan sharks who killed her parents. They used to be part on of the royal houses before they hit bankruptcy trying to fund a very important porject. And in fact…."


"If they hadn't dropped from the royal house she would have been your betrothed."
