Victoria walks down a corridor and sees a young woman clean a puddle of water"Madame. I see you had a spill." she gets a cloth out from her breast pocket "Let me help" Victoria bends down to soak up the wet mess.

-Ella was bent over and on her knees with a cloth, her dirtiness in view as she tried to cover her face but she looked at the girl shyly and she simply nodded, Ella wasn't shown kindness ever since her mother died and her father did as well, looking at the women she blushed a bit "Thank you" Ella said to her kindly as she cleaned up the mess

Ella stood up after helping wipe it up, her bruises were in view and she stood there, she wore nothing but the rags given to her on her body, "I am Ell" Ella said until her sisters screamed "Cinderella!!!!" and Ella sighed and looked down sadly, "Thank you for helping me" Ella said and she rushed back to pour the bath water for her sisters who treated her so awfully and she poured the water in the bath where her sisters sit, the buckets were heavy and she left them to bathe and Ella went walking the corridor after, her hair was pulled back in a long braid which drags her back down to her waist and her face covered in the dirtiness of the ashes but she was no sooner sent to clean the fireplace, just finishing mucking out the fireplace she hauls the ashes in a bucket to dispose of them, wiping her face of her sweat from the hard work she endured she stood after disposing of the ashes and she stays there-

"Victoria, Duchess of Somerset." Victoria smiles at Ella "Pleasure to meet you Ella." she notices the ashes covering the girl as she hears screams in the corridor "A pretty young woman shouldn't be treated like this. How long have you lived like this?"

-Ella looked at her while she stood there, seeing the women there in front of her approaching her she stood by the well outside and looked at her "I have been living like this since my mother's death and my father went away and never returned, they treat me like this all the time" Ella said to her "My mother, she told me to be patient and kind, I have kept her promise but sometimes it is so hard to, they took everything from me, my room, my clothes, everything I had received from my mother and my father, they burned my father's book he given me and my doll from my mother, They aren't the kindest but their all I have" Ella said to her truthfully as she stood in front of her, she wipes her face clean with some water as best as she could and she stood there

"I have been banished to the kitchens, I sleep on the hard floor often" Ella spoke honestly to the Duchess and she stood there-

-Ella looked at the Duchess while she wiped the dirt and ashes from her face helping clean her face from the dirtiness of her hard work and when she hears her offer she blushed "You would do that, for me" Ella said to her and she stood in front of her "That is kind of you, I would like that but however can I go anywhere in these awful rags, I got nothing" Ella asked her while standing there

Ella's clothing was dirty and torn and she looked at her rags she had for clothes gripping them a bit, she had been called Cinderella, Cinder Soot and Cinder Wench and so many awful names, she had been abused by her step sisters and step mother and was most unloved by them, looking at the women she nods "I would like to go with you" Ella said to her-

"I have a few old dresses that you can wear for recreation and some for work. You'll be doing the same job like you are a lady-in-waiting." Victoria says as she wraps her arm around Ella's shoulders "Before you go in public with me, you will need to be cleaned up first."

-Ella listened intently to everything Lady Victoria the duchess had to say to her, looking at her she nodded "Yes my lady" Ella said to her but soon was taken off to be cleaned up and dresses being made for her which suited her well, Ella stood in the bath water and took a seat soaking in the tub full of warm water, she was scrubbed clean by another servant girl while dresses were prepared for her but for the moment only one was prepared so she could wear it, Once finished being washed clean she was taken from the water and covered, her hair wet from the water and dripping while dragging her waist, being dressed she was dressed in a dress simple but beautiful, a dress which was blue and white colored, her long hair had been braided in a long braid laying down her back as her hair drags her cheeks,

The dress of English style of course but it looked good on the young girl, her beauty and youth showing now she was clean from the ashes and she stood as the Lady Victoria was welcomed in the room to look the girl over, glancing at her she curtsies to her "Thank you" she said and she stood there, she didn't know how to react to such kindness but she was happy to know it for once at the moment as she stood in front of the window-

Well, the day of my arrival in the court come.
Facing the new future. I am excited, but my face is inscribed cool indifference.
I entered in the great hall. Guards worship me at the entrance.
Walk forward proudly. My hat is strongly tied back.They all wear hats in French fashion.
It seems people already know who I am. Actually is sufficient to know that I am Boleyn.
As I crossed the long corridor, I hear whispers everywhere.
My family is the most famous in the court now. No matter whether they like it or not.
Just arrived from France, this court seems a bit gray and boring.
I pass the half of my life in the most lavish, most elegant, most beautiful royal court- here they can not impress me with anything.
I stand by the door and expect every time my uncle to appear.
I have to see him. I know he has plans for me and my future.
And it seems that the future will be brilliant.

Upon hearing his niece had arrived at court, Thomas met her in the long corridor. People passed them left and right, all bowing or curtsying in respect. He felt like a king. Then he saw Rose and allowed himself to smile warmly. "Dear niece, I'm glad you arrived safely," he said, kissing her cheek.

I smiled to my uncle and slightly bowed to him. I wanted to show our rise at the royal court.
"I am so glad to see you my dear uncle. The trip was exhausting, but my companions who you send for me were very cautious". And so, I am finally here"-said with a triumphant voice.

"And no doubt you will make a fine addition to court," he said as he silently appraised her. Fair and creamy skin, beautiful eyes and a bewitching stare. She would attract jealousy like honey to flies. "Would you like a small tour of the palace, or perhaps you wish to go to your chamber to refresh yourself?"

But of course I will make an impression uncle-" I said confidently, while pulling dark red brocade curtains and looking out."
I have spent half of my life in France. I know how to please people. You and my dad send me there exactly about that, right? -"I said with ironic smile".
I want to explore part of the palace of course, if you have time.

"As evident in both of my daughters, the French court is an essential place wherein to learn special values, though I do say Anne learned something more of elegance snd discretion than did her sister" he said in reference to Mary's less-than-secret affair with King Francis.

Anne is clever-said I and look at him.
She got what she wanted . But she must be very careful , especially now . They must have a son.
I love Mary , but she had the imprudence to fall to the charm of Francois . She is like a bargaining chip between England and France. Anne do it better.
I smiled again at him and look at the beautiful room.
I see that the royal court is influenced by French style and fashion, uncle-I love it!

"Without a doubt, the court fashions have been greatly influenced by Anne. In fact it's becoming quite clear whose side everyone is on: women still loyal to the Dowager Princess Katherine still wear the gable hoods, while those in favor of Anne wear the French hoods," he informed her.

I smiled.
Oh, I noticed that my uncle. But it seems to be like the king.
Even through clothes ladies express their biases-I said.
Of course I will wear my french hood!
I think for a moment and ask him:
How is my cousin Mary?-said I and looked through the curtain
Poor Mary is probably ruined
-I said with sad smile.
She is no longer king's favorite.

"Mary is the least of our worries, and you would do well not to bring her up in the company of others. The book of Leviticus is still strong in the king's mind," Thomas warned.

You are right, uncle. King even used a passage from that book to protect himself in the process of divorcing Catherine.
If the king decides to get rid of and Ann-he will make it and nobody can stop him.
And that will be the end of our power.

"Well, we mustn't think on that now. It's ill luck. But don't be surprised if the king appears to take a liking to you. He's discreet but his eye ever roves," he warned.

I need some time to be in the situation here.
But do not worry uncle.
I am neither Mary nor Anne. I will not serve anyone's interests except my own. And by the way, I am not  interested in King.

"Very well, then. If you should need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask. By the way, it would be very appropriate if you would visit your cousin Anne. She sounded particularly pleased to know of your coming." Thomas bowed and left the corridor.
