Master Jameson is keeping myself locked through this dreadful tiny room in the top floor of his mansion to make sure I do not run away. It is sizzling and heavy, cluttered with old garments, toys and furniture. And there is to sleep on is actually a soiled and tattered pallet made of pieces of clothe. I have never slept on the floor around me! I rested in my individual bed in a small cove close to my parents, but then again my parents have passed away and have been sold off. I have made good friends with Learn Jameson's nine-year old child, Marie Ann, but My spouse and i call her Daisy because of her golden head of hair. I have always known as her that, and she gets always known as me Botanica, which is absolutely nothing close to my personal actual name, Sarah. I actually don't brain it by any means because I possess really taken a preference to her.

Daisy was forbidden to arrive visit myself after her father discovered we have become friends. This individual did not want his girl associating having a slave woman, as I am one. And naturally, Daisy overlooked her father's warnings, and I was pleased for her to do so. I asked her " Am i not really going to be sold”, and your woman replied " Hush, sound Flora, avoid worry every thing is going to be good, I'll talk to my father and ask for you never to be sold”. I experienced somewhat happy but in the mind of my mind because I was therefore frightened that I could actually be distributed into slavery. I could certainly not imagine what that would be just like. I was only a bit girl and never ready for situations to come. I heard stories of slaves staying beaten just because they viewed their expert wrong or maybe the mere simple fact they were a slave. Living is already hard being a servant so being sold into captivity will be much I believe. I actually miss mother and father and baby sister terribly, I cry myself to self each night wondering in the event that they too were thinking about myself and my personal whereabouts. I actually am not really meant for this kind of lifestyle. Almost all of my family have been sold in to slavery as I have been. Really not perfect for people to personal on another but I suppose Master Jameson sees or else....
