“Do not fall into the-.”

“Stop,” She suddenly bellowed as she put her hand up and looked at me. “Is there something wrong with your face,” she was directing her question to me.

I looked around the room, surprised that she was even talking to me. “Wait… me,” I objected, a little taken aback.

“Yes, you. You made a face as if there was a problem with what I said,” she stated, crossing her arms over her chest. “Do you think otherwise, Miss?”

Oh, God. Did I really make a face? I had to; I always do that without even realizing it. It wasn’t at what she was telling us, but more so at the fact that she had us repeating it like we were children.

I stood up, feeling like it was the right thing to do, and bowed respectfully. “I’m so sorry, I really didn’t mean to make a face. I have a tendency to do that when I’m uncomfortable. I’m so sorry,” I apologized as sincerely as I could.

“Learn how to control your expressions before you serve the Royal Family. If the Queen catches so much as a grimace on your face, they will fire you,” she scowled menacingly.

“She’s not bluffing, lass,” the Master of Households commented by her side with his arms folded.

“Yes, ma’am. Yes sir,” I stated confidently before sitting down. I honestly couldn’t afford to get fired from this job. I can only have one active work Visa and that needs to last me until my current one expires. I mentally reminded myself to be cognizant of my facial expressions when around other people.

The presentation conducted by Tiffany and Whitney continued with ease as they went over meal procedures. Breakfast began at 8 AM, lunch at 12 PM, and dinner at 6 PM. Sometimes the Royals might request to have a snack in between, but it can vary between each person and what they are working on for that day. The four other maids and I were silently taking notes as they spoke on how we were to play a part in ending the day successfully.

“Yes, question,” Whitney pointed to the one woman who had her hand raised.

“I wanted to ask this earlier, but who do we report to about sexual harassment? I’ve dealt with it a lot at a previous job and I would like to know who we can report to on that matter,” the woman inquired, articulating her words very well. She and the other women really made me feel younger than I really was.

“That’s a brilliant question, Patricia,” Whitney answered as she clicked through the slides until reaching the Important Contacts slide. “You can contact the Royal Household Safety and Security number. I advise you all to save all the numbers on this slide into your new phones please,” she announced cheerfully as we copied the numbers into our phones.

I wasn’t sure how much longer I could take their high-pitched voices as they spoke so cheerfully. It was honestly driving me crazy on the inside but making me exhausted on the outside. I tried my hardest to keep my eyes open because I knew Gina was likely watching me. I hated that I’m unintentionally on her radar now.

I glance in her direction and sure enough; she was glaring holes into the center of my puff.

“Alright ladies, if there aren’t any more questions, let’s take a tour of the castle, shall we? You may leave your belongings here since we’ll be returning afterward. Windsor is very large and there are over 1,000 rooms. However, we will only visit the ones that will apply to your daily activities. Please, feel free to explore the castle on your days off,” Tiffany remarked, burning my poor ears with her voice. Great, my head had a hole in it from Gina’s frown and my ears were burning because of Whitney and Tiffany’s voices.

The tour comprised us five trainee maids with Tiffany and Gina as the guides. The Master of Households left just before we began the tour along with Whitney and I was grateful for that. He was a rather intimidating man and hardly spoke, at most I could remember zero words leaving his mouth….
