Juliana could not believe Lady Catherine assigned her to be Richard's chambermaid. She obviously enjoyed doing so because Juliana could hear the wretched woman's cackle all the way down the hall.  How embarrassing to be reduced to the state of his servant, but there was little she could do about her status in life. 
     
Richard came home to find the Wadsworth's family home in ruin. He could not believe his childhood friend Juliana Wadsworth was gone. Told by his conniving stepmother that she had perished in a fire that happened years ago when he was away. He had always believed she would wait for him and that he would be hers and now she was no more. 
     
Lady Catherine had thought Richard as spineless as his father. She could not have been more wrong. There is no limit to her schemes. Juliana or Anna as the servants call her has fallen into her plot nicely. With Richard thinking his precious Juliana gone and Juliana to embarrassed by her lot in life to reveal who she really is. Lady Bentley knew she could count on Juliana to play into her hands perfectly, compromising the new Lord Bentley and securing her place at the Manor forever.

I could finally have my hands on this story! This was a great chapter! The action was very well written and so the descriptions and settings. 
                              You sure gave readers an interesting start! 
                              Your style is really amazing, not everyone can deal with words the way you did in this chapter. Congrats!
I love when stories have Modern English! It makes the chapter whole lot interesting and appealing.
