Excerpt from The Weight of the Crown

I hope I am a lady, Jessie said a little more gently at any rate, I try to remember that I was born one. And I am telling the truth - not that it matters much, seeing that you would send us all into the gutter rather than offenda customer like the Princess. That coward said his mother was waiting for me in the library. He would show me the way. Then he caught me in his arms and tried to kiss me. He wanted me to go to some theatre with him to night. He was too strong for me. I thought I should have died of shame. Then the Princess came in, and all the anger was for me. And that coward stood by and shirked the blame; he let it pass that I had actually followed him into the library.

The girl was telling the truth, it was stamped on every word that she said. Madame Malmaison knew it also, but the hard look on her greedy face did not soften.

You are wasting my time, she said. The Princess naturally prefers her version of the story. And she has demanded your instant dismissal. You must go.
