Aima - The Silent Servant

Egypt, Egypt

Aima was a slave girl in Barnabass in Egypt she worked for a kind Egyptian unlike most others. One day the kind man lost lots of money to another man and he made a speech to the slaves,
"I'm VERY sorry that I have to do it but as I have lost lot's of money I need it back and a cruel man called, Blithius is coming round to buy one of you of me, I am very sorry to whom it may be"

The next day Blithius came round as expected, and each slave looked untidy as they did not want to leave, every slave except Aima that is because Aima did not attend the previous speech and when Bli arrived (I'm calling Blithius Bli now) all the slaves stood in a row and then Bli came along and inspected them all. He chose Aima because she was the most beautiful and tidy of them all.

Aima settled in well at Bli's house and did her work quietly with her head down, until one day she couldn't keep her head down because Bli had thrown out her good friend Nat (Natasha), just because she dropped her broom while brushing up. Aima went and tried to stand up to this big bully but was struck for it.

She tried and tried to get the slaves free until eventually she was arrested and executed, but do not think Aima died in vain, oh no, she didn't. Nat heard what had happened and she took over what Aima did and she finally got somewhere and Aima was properly buried and Nat became supporter of slaves at the local Barnabass council.
