Nel grew up as a servant on a large country estate. Her mother, Lydia, a delicate woman with sad eyes, died when she was young. No one except her mother ever knew her father's name.

She was a pretty child, with dark curls and grey eyes, and a slender, graceful figure. But she was not well-liked by the other servants. Mrs. Marcy, the head cook, took care of Nel after her mother died. She had always avowed that Lydia was uppity and thought herself better than everyone else. She was sure that the child was cut from the same cloth as the mother, just look at her with her nose in the air! She gave Nel the worst of the kitchen chores to teach her humility. It didn't work.

Nel didn't care if they liked her. In fact, as she reached adolescence, she went out of her way to show them how little she thought of them. At about this time she began to attract the attention of some of the young male servants. Tev, a stable hand, was one of those who couldn't keep his eyes off her. Nel discovered that she could trade on her looks to get things she wanted, like riding lessons. And it wasn't just the servants who came calling, there were a few young lords too. One in particular. Nel didn't let herself become emotionally attached to any of them. And she gave nothing away for free.

Usually she worked in the kitchen or scullery, but one time when there was sickness among the servants, she was made to fill in for one of the upstairs maids. While performing her duties, she became lost in a section of the manor she did not know well, and ended up in the lord's private study. Before she could retreat, the lord and a guest entered from another door, and Nel hid herself behind a bureau. There she overheard the lord's plot to murder a business rival. Her gasp of shock gave her away, and she was caught apparently spying.

The guest dragged her from her hiding place and, as she tried to stammer an explanation and apology, swearing to keep the secret safe, the lord himself casually slipped a dagger between her ribs and ended her life.

[more to come]
