I am here to ask for a part of your Lord's land your Highness.
A young girl (Sam) was on her way to the castle to see King John. King John was the ruler of of Feudal Europe during the Medieval Times.
At the land to work
you are very welcome.
I am very grateful that you are letting me work your land your Lord
After some time the King's castle finally came into view. The girl sighed out of relief and ran towards the entrance of the castle.
The truth about the Lord's land
You shouldn't have came! It's absolutely horrible here!
The young girl, who was also a serf, made it into the castle and into the King's Throne Room. She was there to ask him for a part of his lords land. The King a approved of her request and she was given a part of one of his trusty Lord's land.
From here on out I am going to be taking more of your profit! Is that understood?
It has been almost a week since the girl's request and she is finally getting a part of the lord's land to work on. When she gets there however, she realizes that her area to work is actually quite small. She decides that she can't be upset because she got at least a little bit of land and for that she is grateful.
such a pathetic serf. Hah she has to come to me for a job
After a while a girl and boy that seem to be Sam's age came up to her. They told her that working on the Lord's land is dreadful, but they can't leave because they are tied to this land. They are also not allowed to leave without the Lord's permission. A part of their earnings have to go to the lord and they have to also take care of his land
Why it is so bad here? The lord seems fairly nice.
By the end of the week the young girl realized just how bad of a mistake she had made. The lord had taken it upon himself to take more than his fair share of profit from the serfs land. He was not at all as kind and polite as he was when she had first gotten there. She came to the conclusion that a serf's life is never a happy life.
