The town square was lively and filled with the weekly market and people running daily errands. Maria had been running around the small town since dawn, in search of work. A loud clang, along with a loud yelp came from the small clockworks shop. "Oh I'm so sorry!" Maria apologized to the old clockwork that had just yelped in pain from several heavy gears and other objects used to make clocks toppled him. Maria tried to help the man up but he just pushed her away and grumbled before managing to get up. "I told you there is no work here." The old man yelled at her and turned to look at the mess behind him. He groaned in agitation and turned back to Maria, stepping forward and pushing Maria towards the door. "Please, I need the work!" Maria begged the clockwork as she was shoved outside. "No!" The old man shouted back before slamming the door in her face. A look of hopelessness formed on Maria's face as she gave a heavy sigh. She turned around and began walking away from the clockworks shop. Wondering of what she would do if she never found a job, she kept looking.

"I hear your looking for a job." Caius came out from the shadows and had a devilish smirk
on his face. "I am king Caius and I can give you a job. My wife has been slacking when it
comes to her chores and her slutty sister refuses to help... I can hire your as my maid."

Maria's eye went wide and she gave a tiny gasp as she was surprised by the man's sudden appearance. She found his foul language quite off-putting but knew that she wouldn't receive any other work offers and especially any of those better then working in the castle of a king. Yet, she found this whole thing quite odd but decided to put it aside. Maria curtsied and spoke politely to the man that claimed to be the king, as expected from a commoner like her. "Thank you, Your Majesty. I am honored and grateful for your offer. I humbly accept the job as your maid." She spoke highly of him, knowing that it would offend him otherwise.

Cassandra stormed over to them and seemed pissed off. "YOU ASSHOLE!!!" Caius eyes
darkened as soon as he saw her. "Cassandra, get lost! I've found my new maid now stop
complaining." Cassa hit him and he grabbed her wrist, throwing her to the ground. He took
Maria by the hand and dragged her off. "Come on."

Maria was confused as to what was going on. She looked back at the girl that had been shoved to the ground. If it was anyone else she would have said something and gone to help the girl up but seeing as the man was the king, she knew better and so she bit her tongue to stop herself from speaking out.

"That was my adopted sister... we have a terrible relationship after she killed my
family. I married her twin sister and she hates me for it. Can't help it but I prefer
cute, innocent, and not psychopaths." He chuckled a bit. He was lying a lot to her but he
didn't care. He needed her to trust him.

Maria simply nodded, letting him know that she was listening and fully understood what he was talking about. She wondered where he was taking her but after see him throw that girl to the ground, she became a bit scared of the man.

"My castle... you start immediately." He smiled a bit. They came to his castle and
Alexandra came to greet them. She kept her head down but it was obvious to see the bruises
on her face and arms. "G-Good day, my lord and brother."

Maria tilted her head slightly in confusion. She noticed the bruises on the girl's body and felt her heart sink. Maria curtsied toward the girl. Knowing nothing of the king, the royal family and their formalities, she assumed that the girl was nothing more then the king's sibling.

Caius smiled at Alexandra and said "I found us a new maid..." He kissed Alex gently and
said to Maria "come... Let me show you around?"

Maria nodded in reply to the king. She was a bit surprised by the kiss that he had given the girl but didn't allow it show on her face. She was beginning to think that she was getting herself into much more then being a simple maid, or at least, she hoped not.

He showed her around the palace, being polite to her and very charming. He then stopped
and told her "I lied to you about a lot. I've been ruthless throughout my life. I was
trained to be king my since I could walk. My father was a ruthless tyrant and I admired
him. I watched him kill peasants on a daily basis. My mother hated me because I was like
my father. Main reason why she took in two stray children. They looked nothing alike and
acted like totally different people but were born on the same day by the same mother. They
were twins, no doubt. I hated Alexandra but thought I could get along with Cassandra. She
was vicious, and didn't take no for an answer. She was my kind of girl. Though she was
always getting in my way. When our parents would go out, I would try to beat Alexandra but
Cassandra would stop me. She would dare fight me. I was the future king and she was only
princess. She had no right to the throne and no right to attack me. Mother wanted her or
Alexandra to be queen but father didn't. They weren't our blood so they shouldn't be able
to become Queen. Then... one night, our kingdom was attacked by a kingdom we weren't
familiar with. We have never seen them before but they were after something... no someone.
They were after the twins. I suggested we give them up but mother refused. She ordered me
to take them away and raise a kingdom of my own. I watched my parents die. They would
still be alive if it wasn't for those two. So, once I built a kingdom and became king, I
married Alex so Cassa wouldn't bother me. She still does but she can't do anything. So
that's my story. Still interested in the job." He lifted her chin and smirked at her. He
was terrifying but there was something alluring about him.

Maria's eyes widened with surprise as he just told her everything. She was confused as to why he was telling her all this and she wished he hadn't. Maria closed her eyes and gave a small sigh before opening them back up and gently removing his hand from her chin. "Your Majesty, I thank you for your honesty but your past and your decisions... None of that is my business, unless you make them my business. I'm just a simple maid, nothing more, nothing less. I won't get any job better than this one. I've come this far, I'm not going to give it up now." She had to be completely honest with him but tried to be polite as she could.

"I told you all of that because in this house we keep no secrets. You won't keep secrets
from me and I won't keep secrets from you. If yah u have relations with a man you won't do
it here." He took her to a room and told her "this will be your room."
