HI! My name is Alison and I am a peasant. I am rising up to a new day. I was born naturally into the peasant family. I and my family have worked with the animals for years. I can't imagine working anywhere else. As you can see the king is scolding me for sleeping in it's 5:00 in the morning.
It seems they have come up with a new law! It is a document and the nobles have confronted King John and are forcing him to sign the Magna Carta. Us peasants are very happy because the king cannot do anything to anyone that is against the law. We also do not have to pay HEAVY taxes. Now everyone is equal because now no one is above the law! Not Even the king!
During this time period the crusades are happening. Everyone is leaving-- WITHOUT ME! They are all leaving to Asia. Waaittt a minute.... if they leave then that means ill have to work even more. Not many of the peasants have left but many of them have asked me to take care of their jobs for them while they are gone.Well I guess I have to work here until everyone else comes back.
Me and my daughter are suffering a very hard time during the plague. Me and my daughter have a bubo near our ears and it is a really painful thing. "POP"! My bubo has popped, a black ooze comes trickling out. The doctor tells me that this is a sign of survival. My daughter's bubo has also popped, but... nothing comes out of it. when it is time to go to bed my daughter closes her eyes... permanently. Everyone has suffered terrible losses. As I walk outside I see that no one has been tending their fields or feeding their animals. The animals also need a bath and everything is starting to smell really bad. I need to go around and give the animals a bath and go ahead and tend the fields because I know how much the king hates having messy fields and animals.
Now that I have walked you through all my adventures it is time for new ones to come. Even though tragic things have happened and good things have happened we can never give up on life. Many of these things impacted my life severely and some not so much. it looks like the king has sent a messenger to come tell me something. What could it be?
The messenger has told me... wait I'm still listening. OH MY GOODNESS, the king wants me to be an indoor peasant because of all the peasants who died during the plague. Well, I am very excited for all the new adventures that await me.
