Swings are maids, but not maids, yes.

Her fellow old maid is a woman who is tainted with maiden spirit to the very core,
Fortunately, Swing is now quitting the maid. Congrats!

Rich women who treat these two women as maids.
They never even dreamed that they were maids.
Without knowing it, they pass on their maiden spirit to their daughters and granddaughters.
It's sad and terrible.

Our protagonist, who only looks like an idiot,
What was it that the swing couldn't stand in the end?

We give and receive each other every day,

[ Hitchcock's Suspense ]
… … Let me tell you what suspense is. Four people enter the room to play poker. Suddenly, a bomb explodes, leaving all four people to their bones. In this case, the audience is simply amazed. But before the four of them go in to play, I show you a man placing a bomb under the poker table. The four of you are sitting in a chair and playing poker, and the second hand of the time bomb runs out of time. In a situation like this, even the same meaningless conversation can grab the audience's attention. The audience said, 'Now is not the time to talk about trivial things. It makes me want to shout, 'The bomb is going to explode in a little while.' Just before the bomb goes off, after the game is over, I'm about to get up, and one of them says: 'Have a cup of tea.' At this very moment, the audience's impatience is on the verge of an explosion. The emotion I feel at this time is 'suspense'.
