Alistair smiled as he walked down the stairs towards his mother's dining room. He stepped into the nicely decorated room, the maids setting up the tableware. He bowed slightly and smiled. "Thank you for all your hard work. Keep it up" The maids bowed and then continued working as he walked through the dining room to the kitchen, but not before he heard some whisperings and giggling that related to him. He was popular with the ladies. At least that is what he always told himself. In the kitchen, 3 more maids were put to work making the food. It looked like today's supper was Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding afterward. Along with the Roast Beef was cut up potatoes with spices. It smelled delightful. A maid came up to Alistair, bowing. "Master Alistair, what kind of tea would you like with your Supper?" Alistair smiled at the maid. "Earl Grey is just fine" "Yes Master!" She hurried back to her post, throwing on a pot of water for the tea. Alistair sauntered out of the kitchen to the front door. "If you please, I need a maid to accompany me to the marketplace. I must purchase more of mother and father's favorite tea" A small maid made her way to the front door, bowing and putting on a jacket near the door. Opening the door, off went the maid and Alistair to the marketplace. "Master, are you sure it is ok for me to accompany you? I'm just a lowly maid after all..." He stopped, placing his hand out in front of him. "That is where you would be wrong, my dear...You are not just a maid. You are our maid. You have place and value among our house. Always remember that the Walker House maids are not just maids, they are family. Now stop all this nonsense spewing and let us go find that tea that my mother and father like so much!" They approached the marketplace, the day's usual rush going through. People scrambled to get daily meals from all different kinds of merchants. This fascinated the young Prince. But he knew his mother and father would be home soon and he had to get the tea back to the house in time to make it for them. He eagerly lead the maid to the tea and coffee shop.
