Alice has just turned 18. She has put away her Madame Maud’s uniform and made herself an Adventuress’s outfit, she is a very practical young lady. She even made her own boots. She is taking one of her beloved Colts and one of her two Masamune katana. Her jacket has a special fitting for the swords sheath. She is going to seek her fortune in Europe.
Mumsy and Da are rather pleased the girl is off to see the world, as it means they can once again run naked through the house and grounds without Alice discovering Da’s secret… all the staff know it, of course, as most of them have been there since Mumsy and Da were born. Hildegard will miss her little Alice, though.
