10. Mr Kent

I looked back at my Master; I flinched as he placed his hand on my shoulder. I don’t know why I thought he would hit me, he had never struck me before, my Master is kind. He is not the type of man to hit a servant, but I flinched away none the less. When I looked back at him he looked hurt, as though I had hit him.

“You thought I was going to hit you?” he asked. I shook my head furiously.

“Oh, no, no Sir, of course not Sir,” I blabbed.

Truth is I am frightened of him. He is a gentle man by nature, but nurture has turned him bitter and angry at the world, not just his Father.

I should have never have brought the letter to his room. I should have left this matter at home where Miss Eliza’s Governess Mrs Hardy could have taken care of is, or Mrs Hewitt. It is about time that woman started taking an interest in her step-daughter.

“Then hand me the letter Kent,” Mr Hewitt’s voice was low and gruff. I had heard him speak to some of his other servants in this tone before, but not to me. It scared me. My hands were shaking vigorously but I did as I had been taught and obeyed my Master. I turned around and handed him the letter.

I tried to hide how nervous I was. But it was not something that could be disguised easily. My hands were trembling, but there was nothing new there, I was naturally a very nervous man.

Master held the letter in his hands.

He did not know what it read, but I did. And I knew for a fact that Mr Hewitt was going to be angry.
