Saturday Word of the Day: Postern

*Postern: a back door or gate

Servants were supposed to enter through the postern, but Mary didn’t like rules. And besides the front door was often unminded if you knew when the head butler was taking his lunch, so it wasn’t like anyone could scold her.

“We’re supposed to use the postern, Mary. We’ll get in trouble.” Lauren did not like breaking the rules, her voice trembled with fear as she called after the older girl running through the foyer.

“Not if we’re quick now hurry up.”
