Hi. I'm Rosalind Duke. You may not believe my story but I believe that you will be pleased to hear it. For as much as my title suggests, I was not kicked out by my rich parents. In fact, I truly believe they were kicked out first.
My mother died when I was born, so my father was determined to raise my up with the best care a man can give his child. My father decided to call me Rosalind, as he later told me that I was named after the heroine in Shakespeare's 'As You Like It', as she was a strong, intelligent and charming woman. And as I studied the character, I also found that her story is the same as mine.
You see, my father was the original owner of numerous businesses both around the country and overseas. This made my family very wealthy. Because of my father's status, his brother and my uncle, oddly enough called Freddy, was highly jealous of him.
So what my uncle decided to do is to spread rumours questioning my father's powers and abilities as a businessman. This eventually led to my father's disappearence, which I entirely blame my uncle for. We found a note in his room that seemed to be a suicide note that seemed to be my father's suicide note and last requests.
In his Will it stated that all of his fortunes and comanies will all go to his brother, Freddy. It also stated that Freddy must take me as one of his children. Naturally the Will was followed through, and later I found that the note was definitely his writing which just confused me even more.
But I still believe this is all occured due to my uncle's menacing schemes. But also, I don't believe that my father is dead. Despite my uncle being a slithering viper come to poison us with is intelligent but evil traps, I know for a fact that murder is not his forte.
This didn't stop me from finding ways to hound him everyday. I would say things like "I know what you've done" or "Where is my father" and I would constantly behave and move in ways that would make him uncomfortable.
Finally one day, my uncle couldn't take no more and, like what happened in 'As You Like It', he 'banished' me from his house and 'court'. I wasn't deterred by this. In fact, it only enhanced my determination and proved to me that my father was still alive. So, I decided to take the cover of a private eye, so that I may practice in my ways of detection and eventually find my father so that we may take down the power from our slithering uncle and take back what is rightfully ours.
You may choose whaether or not to believe this story. And I wouldn't blame you. My story does have many links to Shakespeare's "As You Like It". But at the same time it isn't the same story. I'm not dressed up as a teenage boy, and I've not fallen in love with an Orlando and I highly doubt that Uncle Freddy will give up his power for religious reasons.
No, I am just a woman named Rosalind Duke looking for justice where justice is required. And that's my story.
