To realize your ambition you will have to study under a master. However few masters will take female disciples. Moreover you have no money. Your father is not sympathetic to your ambition; however he has other daughters to marry off and is willing to do something to get you out of the house. He arranges for you to become a maid at the Inner Way Academy.
There you discover that as a maid you are no closer to realizing your ambition than you were before. You are young and pretty though, and the headmaster notices you. He invites you to share his bed. If you do perhaps you can persuade him to let you take lessons. Then again, it may be a path that leads nowhere. Which do you choose, ambition or virtue?
