The piles of paper lay around the study room as if they were ready to take flight. It was time for the young master to organize his quiet space and find a better spot to place his documents.
A gentle tap on the study room door that led to the corridor startled him. The young master rose from his stoop and said, "You may enter."
The sound of the elderly man's voice brought a smile to the young master's face. He always enjoyed listening to what his most trusted guide had to say.
"My Lord. There is a trio waiting to see you in the living area."
The butler cleared his throat and sighed as if to indicate that the young master better get a move on, quick. He watched the young Lord chuckle knowing full well that the butler would not be amused by his dilly-dallying.
As soon as the young master left the study room, the butler thought to himself, "Oh this young master would lose his head if it was not attached to his body!"
The young master strolled briskly to the living area. Once he was there he opened the doors wide leading to the living area and took a deep breath.
He spotted his best friend, with a young lady, and another unfamiliar person. His eyes quickly took note of his guests appearance.
His best friend was well-dressed in a suit and tie, looking so dapper. Then the lady was dressed in the latest classical fashion- her dress fit her figure well, his mind started to wish that he could be alone with her and get to explore every inch of her edges and every curve. The last one or man standing was a new face, but he was dressed in a much simpler and casual attire than the other two friendlier faces.
The young master smiled and walked closer to greet his guests. He charmed them and asked if they did not mind staying the night as it was getting closer to nightfall.
They all agreed and ended up dining at the grand home of the young lord. While the rest of the young master's guests all prepared to head to bed, he went back to his study room. This time he planted himself into his seat and pondered on how to make sure his guests, or rather the young lady, stayed a bit longer in his humble abode.
He grinned at the thought of just having the young lady stay behind. Come what may, he would woo her.
