My body felt stiff, my mouth full of cotton. I opened my eyes to look around, but it was still dark.No, that wasn’t quite right: I could feel a covering over my eyes, something soft, bound tight. Maybe a scarf. I wasn’t sure.I tried to reach up and pull it away, but both my arms were tied down beside me. I got my arms a couple of inches up, but it was all I could manage. I tugged harder, but the straps bit into my wrists. I tried to move my legs, but they weren’t any better off. There were straps fastened around my ankles, and something looped around my neck.Moving around, I could tell that was it. I was naked, apart from being trussed up like a Christmas ham.My heart pounded… and then, Master’s voice whispered in my ear, “Autarchia and auscultation. Relax.”The words were strangely familiar, but I had no idea what they might mean. It didn’t matter though: they felt like a key turning in a lock.I relaxed instantly, letting myself lay limp in my bonds.Master caressed my left side, His fingertips barely making contact with my skin. The touch raised goosebumps on my bare flesh, and sent a shiver down my spine. I wanted to lean into the touch, but I felt passive. Like I shouldn’t move unless He told me to.
