Queen Anna had assigned me to help Princess Sapphire. It had surprised me. Usually I was told to do the dirty work. I wished every royal person was like Queen Anna. She was really nice even to us servants.

I knocked before entering Princess Sapphire's room. I pulled out a piece of parchment from my pocket and wrote on it: Good afternoon your highness.

"I'm guessing you're going to be my maid?" she asked as she finished reading. I bowed my head then nodded. "Will you not speak to me instead of writing on parchment?" I took the parchment back and wrote more on it.

I cannot speak for I  was born a mute. I handed it back to her.

"I see." she said "Well at least there won't be any arguing between us." I smiled. Hopefully she wasn't a snotty little rich kid that had to have everything perfect.

The End
