-- What yer lookin' at? Nothin' to see 'ere, this ain't no circus!
Talking like an unrefined working class woman was now second nature to former Lady Margaret - now simply Maggie. Although she has accepted her new station in life - that of a household servant at the beck and call of her betters - she still hated it when she was forced to scrub the entrance stairway - especially when the neighborhood boys were playing outside, throwing dirt and little rocks at her, as if she was solely there for their entertainment.
It all started innocently enough, when Margaret struck a deal with her maid Sarah to swap roles for a day just for fun. It soon became her obsession though as she was sinking deeper and deeper into her maid persona, begging Sarah to act out the role of a strict mistress for her. They even moved to a different town to make their game more real.
Sarah didn't like any of it, but soon realized it was her chance in life. If her mistress loved being a maid so much, why not make her dream come true? As long as she gave up her old life and gave her wealth to Sarah, who would then hire her as a maid. Sarah was certain that Margaret would never agree to such a deal, but she did! And here she was, dressed in her uniform, rubbing the stairway of her lady's house.
