Servant's Uniform, Timepiece, Many (but not all) Keys for Palace Doors

The Palace has always been a place of secrets. It's all the history, you see. It buries the truth under layers.

But when you've been here as long as I have, ensuring the smooth running of the place, keeping vigil, you become a part of the Palace, unseen, unheard and unnoticed. Yes, you get to hear things. You get to hear it all.

You gather together the overheard whispers, the glimpse of shadows, the gossip of the "below stairs" staff. And that's when you know something is going on.

Like now for instance.

It's no secret that M'Lady was ill, has been in one way or another since M'Lord passed on (God bless his soul) and no secret that the Royal Physician has worked tirelessly to help Her (the man is a saint!).

But something has happened there. M'Lady's routines have changed. There are no visitors anymore, the stables report Her absence, the kitchens gossip about Her change in diet, there are even rumors about some domestic staff being given special accommodations in some of the empty rooms, and in truth, they are being guarded more closely now.

And then there are the increased visits from these sickly foreign types -- asking questions, bothering the serving staff, peddling their smooth lies among those that should know better. I've seen the surreptitious glances, the furtive gestures.

And with one of the girls missing too. No difficulty in guessing where the guilt lies with her disappearance. The whole thing is quite sordid. The risk to the dignity of the Crown should not be tolerated.

Well, M'Lady has no worries on that score. The smooth running of the Palace has lain within the generations of my family for years.

If something is going on here I will find out.

And put a stop to it.

"The Palace will run smooth like it always has, as long as I am alive."
