I was licking her boots when she said “Stop!”
“Sit up on your knees but keep your head bowed. Do not speak unless invited to.”
“For the next week you aren’t my lover. You aren’t my pet. You are my slave but that won’t be your title. Nor am I your Goddess. I am your Owner. You are my property.”
“What am I? Answer.”
“My owner.” She kicked my right knee.
“What are you? Answer.”
“Your property.” She kicked my left knee.
“If you had the proper mindset you wouldn’t be wondering why you were kicked. But I know you: you wonder why.”
“You will learn how to speak as property.”
“I forbid you to use pronouns or adjectives. You will use nouns and verbs. Nothing else.”
“You should have said ‘Owner, owner.’ Property can never say my because property has nothing. Never address your owner without using your owner’s title.”
“You probably think you should have said ‘Property’s owner.’ But property has nothing. You must say ‘Owner of property.” Never use the possessive.
“Unless I tell you to use other words. Spoken protocol may change by day or hour. I may call you many things. You exist only to please my whims.”
