​Six months after Jokai’s death, Mabeline was very sick, she was a shadow of her former radiant self. One day she called the remaining two children she had. “Jofin, Emerald” They both rushed in at their mother’s call. “Hmmmm, my precious, I love you both so much……….”
She coughed heavily. “………..But I sense my end is very near. Emerald!” Emerald shifted to sit beside her.
 “Yes mama.” She coughed again. “Take your brother and leave this village, go to the city and further your education.”
“But mama” Jofin said admist tears. “….We can’t just leave you here” He was holding her hands firmly as if he could not afford to let them go.
“This is my last wish please obey it. Open my trinket box and take the money there, use it for your education when you get there. But remember Emerald, keep your honour and dignity, never let any man in between your legs unless he is your husband, remain pure. Jofin! Please do not follow any bad gangs, be a good boy…….” She gasps for air. “M-m-make me-me-p-pr-proud.”
After this, Mabeline gave up the ghost. Emerald and Jofin left for Vast City after their mother’s burial, but this was just the beginning for Emerald as she took on the role of a mother for her brother Jofin.
********************
Vast City is a sophisticated city. If you are not smart then your life might be destroyed in Vast City. On getting there, Emerald immediately enrolled Jofin in a government boarding school, where luckily he was awarded a scholarship in his second junior year.
The money cannot sustain Emerald’s education therefore she opted for a job as a maid in the household of Mr and Mrs Vannak while she attended lessons and tutorials. 
The Vannaks were from another tribe called “Korsian” in a country called Skornia, so they were quite pleased to let Emerald to be their maid so she could translate sometimes what they don’t understand of ‘Yorsian’ which was the national language of Emerald’s country apart from English.

“The food is served sir and madam.” Emerald came out from the kitchen and informed them. “Komawo 
Emerald.”(Thank you Emerald.) Mrs Vannak replied. “I am sure today’s meal will be as sweet and deliciious as the previous meals”
Mr Vannak added with overly bright eyes filled with lust for Emerald which unfortunately Mrs Vannak didn’t notice. This was the beginning of Emerald’s troubles.
