"It has, my dear, it has. However, my investors want me to expand. They want me to open another factory up in the North, towards your grandfathers land. Your grandfather has even offered to give us a part of his property to build the factory. The building has been under way for quite some time, and I do believe it will be complete by the time you reach the Northern boarders, where your grandfather will meet you and your company to take you the rest of the way," Her father moved towards the desk, fiddling with some papers before he found what he was looking for. On the paper was a large (though not quite as large as the home she was living in now) house just beyond the fences of a factory that looked much like her fathers.

"Now, I know you haven't had much experience overseeing workers, but this factory isn't for machinery as mine is. It is for clothing, which I figured you'd much rather oversee than machinery," The older man smiled down at his daughter. "I promised you a place of your own, and I'm finally able to give it to you. I know it's not close to home, but I'll be able to visit you on holidays. Your grandfather has also agreed to introduce you to the locals and find you a suitable husband. I know Jedediah will be very helpful in your journey and in keeping you safe in the Northern territory,"

Jedediah had been listening closely, and though his face betrayed nothing, he was terrified. The Northern territories were cold and full of bandits. The fencing around what would soon be her new home was evidence of the fact that the rich were still not welcome in the North. He knew he'd have a hard time watching her, but that was his job. He knew he could do it well, but could he protect himself at the same time?
