An Enviable Task -Snippet Sunday

~~Warning: Adult content~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday.  This week, I continue with my latest project, a bondage fantasy titled Bound to Her Master.

Last week, Lord Stepanyan hears that his decision to hide his new sex slave under a cloak caused quite a stir--and a round of wagers as to when he would finally reveal her. Now, let's fast forward to intermission at the slave games, where Lord Stepanyan and his slave, Ti-Hana, are in a private dressing area freshening up before her big reveal. Ti-Hana's focus isn't on her own primping, however, but watching her Master be attended--something she's never been privy to before.

One of the servants rubbed Lord Stepanyan’s hard body with oils, an enviable task Ti-Hana had fantasized about early on in their time together. What went through his mind while he was being prepped to demonstrate his Mastery of her? While careful to avoid eye contact, she stole glances at his expression and saw how he eyed himself in the mirror with what seemed careful scrutiny of the job his attendants were performing. Was he mentally supervising the servants’ efforts, or was he judging himself to gauge flaws the public might find in their lord’s manner or appearance?
A third servant dressed the Master’s hair, applying some kind of smoothing balm to the hundreds of warrior braids that had also stunned Ti-Hana. Hours must have been required for the hairstyle alone, an uncustomary show of vanity for a lord she hadn’t found to be nearly as caught up in his appearance as he’d been in dictating her own. Then again, he had no need of fuss to steal a woman’s breath away. Too much window dressing detracted, rather than enhanced, the natural beauty of a perfectly chiseled diamond. Whereas Ti-Hana, with her large tummy and the occasionally swollen feet she could no longer see, needed all the help she could get.


So, what do you think?

  2. So interesting the way she watches as his people groom him. Makes the reader wonder why he's selected a pregnant slave?
