America is abruptly woken in the middle of the night and informed of rebels attacking the palace.
"Please, miss, you have to get up! We're under attack. We have to get you to the basement."
America insists upon taking her maids down to the royal safe room, despite their obvious non-royal statuses.
"No, miss. We go somewhere else. You have to hurry before they get here. Please!"
"Okay, let's go,"
The four of them make it down to the room, and painstakingly wait out the rest of the rebel attack.
"There wasn't anything to say about the situation that was pleasant, so we stated quiet, listening to the clamor of the room."
The palace is constantly under attack from rebels against the government system. There are two different rebel groups, being the northern and southern. The northern rebels simply tend to disrupt palace life, and at the worst will pillage the rooms. The southern rebels, however, are violent and will not hesitate to kill.
America is fully aware that whichever location her maids would otherwise be directed to cannot be all that safe, at least in comparison to the royal safe room. So, she decides to bring her three maids along with her, an action that ultimately none of the other Selected would take.
I chose this overall scene because it really shows how caring America is as a character. The fact alone that she became close with her maids goes to show how she doesn't judge individuals based on their statuses or castes. This is fitting for her as a born five, since she had never been anywhere close to royalty before the selection.
