A storm broke out! Maria, Esther, the governess and the wagon driver found an inn close by owned by a Jew, who was happy to serve his royal guests. The king was informed that they would have to stay overnight due to the storm and Esther went to the innkeeper.
I am a Jew! Can I spend Shabbos and have the Shabbos meal by your table?
The innkeeper said to Esther that he would love to have her by his Shabbos meal; he finished of saying "You are a second Daniel." Esther had no idea who Daniel was so the innkeeper explained to her who he was.
Sure, Are you the adopted princess that everyone is speaking about?
Many Yidden have the custom to give a Brochah their children every Shabbos., this was the innkeeper's Minhog and when she saw him give his children Brochos she asked her to give her a Brochah to.
My daughter, may it be Hashem's will be like our mothers: Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel and Leah.
The next day Maria and the governess leave and they let Esther stay till Shabbos is over, on Motzei Shabbos Esther had to go back to the palace.
Late that summer the king went hunting, Esther was asked again and again to convert; Esther held back her tears but in her room, she cried and asked Hashem to give her the strength to stay to her Yiddishkeit. But how can she escape? If she would try to run away the king would find her, she has to think of an idea.
Maybe I should... no that is not a good idea; how about...
That night Maria ad the governess fell asleep and late into the night Esther remained awake and she remembered some memories of her childhood .
Mother said that we will go through hard times, but she will be Davening for us.
Mother, help me! Save me from this danger that is threatening to destroy me!
