The Start Of The Princess Big Day
Elizabeth was turning 17 and there would be a great birthday party in the house for whose organization and preparation we were responsible. Janette, of course, was the main organizer of the event because clearly Elizabeth trusted her most. But still I wondered why we had to begin the preparation in 6. 30 in the morning when the party would take place as far as 8 p.m. Anyway, I supposed that we had really lots of work to do for the princess’ big day and I’d better started doing what I was told. As it was Saturday, the bosses weren’t going to work and they would be in the house probably during the whole day which kind of bothered me. I didn’t know how I would be able to stand the condescending Katherine and the little sassy princess for an entire day but I didn’t have a choice.
Luckily, Chase was the only one who was in the house. He didn’t sleep in only because it was the weekend but he got up at about 8 a.m. Katherine came downstairs half an hour after him and instead of having breakfast with her husband, she went out by herself, taking her own car which was one of the latest models of BMW. She had dressed up because, as I heard in the kitchen, she had some official breakfast with friends from the foundation in which she participated and after that she had to visit an art-gallery opening. This probably meant she wouldn’t be around for the most part of the day which was fine by me. I wasn’t willing to look at her cold and nasty face expression, which didn’t seem to change at all, for all day. So, she left without even talking to her husband which was really rude. I served his coffee and breakfast and we had a small talk about the weather outside and the main news in the daily press which I’d brought to him. He said he would help us with anything we needed for the preparation of the party which sounded really nice.
Elizabeth was also in the house but she was sleeping in her room. And, as I understood from the others, she would most certainly be sleeping until the afternoon so that she would be fresh for the party in the evening. Well, this didn’t surprise me because I already knew that the princess was used to sleeping late because she didn’t have anything else to do but go around the cafes, the malls and the discos. So, it seemed it would be just me, Erika, Jack, Joseph, Chase, and Janette who wasn’t doing anything but giving orders to all of us.
