"Is there anything else you would like me to get for you, your highness?"
"No, that's all (f/n)."
"Of course, your highness."
You curtseyed and left your master to his breakfast. Returning to the hallway, you began your daily rounds of cleaning and whatnot. Being one of only two maids of the Trancy Estate, and as you were the only human, it was quite a bit of work for you and you preferred to start early.
Yes. You knew all about demons and contracts, like the one Master Alois Trancy had with Claude. After all, you could hardly have worked there for so long without noticing. You couldn't say that you approved, but it wasn't your place to protest. Even if you did, what is done is done and there was no turning back. In any case, you preferred this arrangement a thousand times more than the previous. Master Alois Trancy was a miracle to you, having struggled horribly when you served his father. The despicable man. Ah well, your mother had always taught you never to speak ill of the dead, and you tended to honor her memory by doing what she had asked of you. Speaking of, she always said that work delayed will be repaid. Better hop to it.

You were polishing the banister of the staircase when you sensed a presence behind you. Turning, you saw that your master was observing you as you worked. You jumped slightly, not having heard him come up behind you. Before you could sink into a curtsey though, he caught your arm. You reddened slightly, and tried backing away but he refused to let go. Instead, he pulled you forcefully towards him, and latched his lips firmly onto yours.
At first the shock made you stiffen up, but once he became more gentle, you felt yourself melt into the kiss, dropping the rag you had been using. You couldn't tell how long you stood there, but eventually you both broke for air. Your (e/c) eyes peered into his bright blue ones and saw nothing but pure, uncontaminated happiness. Rare, too rare you thought, for your young master. Suddenly the blush on your expression deepened and you tried to step away before anyone saw, however, Alois held fast to you.
"Your highness... This is... You'll be..."
"I don't care."
"But your highness!"
"I love you."
"But... I'm just a servant."
"It doesn't matter."
You paused, shocked. He... He returned your feelings? He felt the same? You never would have believed it to be true if it hadn't just happened to you. Yes, you realized, Alois is your miracle.
"I... I love you too, your highness."
"I love you... Alois."
That happiness returned to his eyes, and again he pulled you into another kiss; this one longer and sweeter now that there was immediate agreement from both sides. Again the need for air drove you apart. You rested your head on his chest as he gently played with your (h/c) locks. Suddenly, you both realized it had gotten rather late. You looked up at Alois and were about to excuse yourself when the mischievous glint in his eyes stopped you in your tracks. Gently taking your hand, he pulled you along the decorated halls. At one point, you both passed by a very surprised Claude.
"Where are you going, your highness? It's time for you to turn in for the night."
"Claude, (f/n) will be spending the night with me, so don't bother us!"
"Alois! But I'm just a servant!"
Alois ignored both and extremely red you and an extremely stunned Claude and sauntered into his bedchamber with you in tow. To the amusement of the rest of the servants, neither of you emerged before lunchtime the following day.
