You had a nightmare that night. A nightmare that showed yourself, standing in front of your flaming home. The house was burning down as you rushed closer. You saw your older brothers and sisters, banging on the window. They kept screaming, "HELP! HELP!". You ran closer, as close as possible. The window's lock was busted, there was no way out. The door seemed to be blocked. You felt weak, trying to get through the crimson red flames. Nobody was there to help, and nobody would be left. You let out a painful scream...
On the floor, you woke up. Everyone, who was awake, looked at you in a confused way. "Are you alright?", asked Mey-Rin.
"Yeah.", said Finnian. "You looked pretty tense in your sleep. Did you have a nightmare?"
You looked into their eyes, except for Sebastian's, who's eyes scared you. You gave a quiet sigh. "I'm... I'm fine. Thank you for asking, and sorry for the trouble I had just caused." You sat up.
Sebastian gave a cold smile. "Alright, Lady Elizabeth will be arriving this afternoon to visit. I want this Mansion clean and food prepared well." Everyone blinked. "What are you waiting for? Go!"
Everyone except for Tanaka and Sebastian had rushed out. Half dressed, you ran through the halls. You looked at your feet, your bare feet. You had just realized you forgot to dress completely. You blushed in harassment and rushed back to the room. Putting on your clothes, and don't forget the shoes, you rushed back out.
Sebastian opened the curtains to the large window in Ciel's room. Ciel, barely waking up to the sunlight, sits up on his large bed. After being dressed, Ciel was given tea. Smelling the scent of the tea, Ciel figured it was Lapsang Souchong Tea. Ciel tasted the strong and smokey flavor of the tea.
Some sources say Lapsang Souchong Tea is the first black in history. (Information on the tea: [link])
"Sebastian, what is my schedule?", Ciel asked.
"You have fencing at 10. Violin practice at 10:30. Oh. And, Lady Elizabeth will be visiting this afternoon.", Sebastian answered.
"Why so early- Lizzy?!", Ciel suddenly said aloud.
You watched Baldroy cook. You noticed mistakes even he didn't see. He was cooking up brunch. He flatten the bread too much, he didn't cut the dough correctly. "Umm... Baldroy..."
He turned to you. "What?", he asked.
You felt nervous. He looked older and ready to pound you into the floor if you criticized him. "You're not very good at baking.", you said coldheartedly. Your eyes has no shine, but for that split second, you had no emotions. Snapping out of the trance, you saw Baldroy scratch his head.
"You're right.", he just said. You were glad he wasn't mad. He just noticed he cut the bread into 10 uneven parts. He was supposed to cut them into 5 even parts. Sebastian opened the door. He looked at Baldroy's cooking and glared at Baldroy.
"I'll handle the cooking.", said Sebastian. "Just go down and check on the furnace." Baldroy walked out of the room in disappointment. He gazed at you, then smiled. "I'm extremely sorry for that display of poor cooking."
You gave a small, but hearty, laugh. You went to cutting the dough. You used extreme precision that impressed Sebastian. You went on to help Mey-Rin set up the table for Elizabeth's visit. You used your reflexes to catch the falling plates. "Miss Mey-Rin?", you called.
"Yes?", she enthusiastically answered your call.
Catching a falling plate, you said, "You're getting way too many plates."
After helping Mey-Rin set up the table, you ran to the garden to see what Finnian does. You saw a garden of Sterling Silver Roses and gasped in amaze. Then you saw Finnian about to fall into them, suddenly ripping out a pole from the ground and throwing it to cause a chain reaction that would prevent Finnian from crashing into the roses. "Whoa.", Finnian said in amaze.
"Uck! I'm really sorry Mr. Finnian!", you apologized. Finnian walked up to you and smiled.
"It's no big deal. You saved the Young Master's favorite roses right? And just call me Finny.", He said with a shining smile.
It was noon.
A large carriage was stopped outside the Mansion. Out came a cute blonde girl and her pretty brown haired assistant. Sebastian opened the door to the mansion and Ciel walked out.
The young girl ran to hug him. "CIEEEEEEL!", she squealed. She hugged the young master (Master if your younger than Ciel).
"E-Elizabeth?!", Ciel tried to speak.
Elizabeth pouted. "It's LIZZY!", she whined.
Ciel sighed and led Elizabeth inside. "What brings you here Lizzy?", Ciel asked.
"Can't a man's fiancee visit without a reason?", Elizabeth pouted.
Sebastian has prepared brunch. Ciel and Elizabeth were seated. Sebastian looked at you and smiled. "Bring this dish to the young master and to Lady Elizabeth." Sebastian gave you a covered dish on a fancy silver plate. You took a step and the plate wobbled. You held it together and walked over to the table.
Elizabeth looked at you. "Are you new?", she asked. You freaked out. You had never talked to a noble before. You tripped over yourself and fell over. The dish fell on your head and was ruined.
Sebastian walked to the table with another dish. "I'm incredibly sorry. Yes, he/she is new. Baldroy, Finnian, help the young lad/lass up. Mey-Rin, clean this up."
Baldroy and Finny helped you on your feet. Ciel ordered you to clean yourself up. You walked to the bathroom. You washed your face and looked at the mirror. "What did Mr. Sebastian bring me here?"
"Because you're special.", you heard his voice.
You turned around and saw Sebastian at the door. "What?"
"You're the son/daughter of a man who had originally worked for the previous Earl of Phantomhive. Isn't it natural? You're connected to England's Underground.", Sebastian said.
That's all for now.
