'Uncle' Ted loosened his collar while unbuttoning the stiff white shirt of his butler's uniform. His muscled chest heaved beneath the finery and ruffles. In the midday sun of a hot southern, humid heat, his chest glistened with the sweat of a day's labor making him as pungent as the hardest working field slave. Then again, he thought, it could be worse, but being head 'house nigger' had its privileges: he could unbutton his uniform, and raid the master's liquor cabinet in the cool shade of the house patio whenever he found himself alone in the great white plantation mansion. Yeah, he thought, it could be a whole lot worse. Thank god for the county fair, where the whole family could indulge in childlike pleasures all day long, like today.
He rolled the tall cool glass of Johnny Walker across his forehead as he plunked himself down into the large white wicker chair and rested his tall boots across the glass table. For this moment the world was his. He avoided glancing toward the fields where his brothers toiled in the hot sun. He reveled in his own superiority, grateful that he had been born just this lighter shade of darkness that set him above his people at birth.
All his life had been spent in the White House. His only duties had been to be the companion to the young master, a boy, now a man his own age, Master Tarelton's son, Beau Tarelton. He was also taught to do odd jobs around the huge house. Through his own intelligence and hard work, and with Beau's encouragement, he had become head of the household staff. He had been dubbed "Uncle" at the drunken whimsy of the elder Tarelton and the moniker had stuck. And now Beau was a young man finding companions of his own among the white aristocracy.
