Caption: Forever Her Maid

-- Betsy, hurry up, we don't have all day!
-- Yes, miss!
It seemed like a good idea at the time for Charlotte to temporarily swap places with her maid Betsy to play a joke on her semi-blind grandmother. Six months later the joke was on her.
Wearing a formal maid uniform and helping her "mistress" dress for the wedding in a luxurious satin gown, former Charlotte - now known to the world as Betsy - saw her life stolen from her. It was her, who was supposed to wear a beautiful dress! It was her, who was supposed to marry the handsome Baron George Ashburton! It was her, who was born to live the life of luxury and marry a noble lord! Instead, she was kneeling on the floor, straightening the train of her mistress - soon to become Baroness Ashburton!
