  1. An Interim Story: Valran – Sleep

    4

    June 30, 2015 by lynadmin

    Valran lay in bed, staring blankly at the ceiling. Even at night, it wasn’t truly dark in the Inner Circle. Light shone from other windows, from the streets, from down in the second and Third Circles, making the night a dim twilight haze. The outer wall was dark at night, except for the few shuttered […]


  2. Chapter 20 – Valran – Duck

    2

    April 7, 2015 by lynadmin

    “Duck your head a bit. There, like that.” Keldra Dre’s hand rested lightly on the back of Valran’s head. “There.” She tousled his hair gently. “Keep your eyes on the floor, but keep–  here.”  Her hand went down to the small of his back, her other hand to his shoulder. “Keep your spine straight, feet solid […]


  3. Chapter 18 – Valran – Remember

    “Remember.” Keldra Dre tapped Valran’s nose for emphasis. He wrinkled his nose and struggled not to pull away. “There’s a lot to take in.” He shut his mouth, but the words had already been said. “I mean, Mistress, I will do my best.” Her lips curled upwards. “I know you will, Valran Servus. You want […]


  4. Chapter Sixteen – Valran – Here

    February 10, 2015 by lynadmin

    “Here.” Keldra Dre stood up and strode away from Valran. He swallowed until his throat no longer felt too dry to speak again. “Here, ma’am?” “Stay there.” She called it over her shoulder; if Valran hadn’t been so confused, if his legs hadn’t been falling asleep, he would have been grateful. As it was, he […]


  5. Chapter Fourteen – Valran – Agree

    December 31, 2014 by lynadmin

    “-agree?” It took Valran a moment to realize that Keldra Dre was talking to him. He blinked at her, and settled on “ma’am?” She probably wasn’t going to ask him to go around saying “what the fuck, ma’am?” He hoped. She pursed her lips and frowned at him. Shit. This wasn’t good. “What’s wrong?” That […]


  6. Chapter 12 – Valran – Choose

    5

    December 4, 2014 by lynadmin

    “Choose.” “Choose, ma’am?” Valran blinked at the ancient, terrifying woman who owned him. The car had gone quiet for a little while, almost entirely silent, as they wended their way into the heart of New Indapala. And then… that. “I’m sorry, I got lost in my own thoughts. There’s a choice to be had for […]


  7. Chapter 11 – Taslin – Choose

    “Choose.” The barracks for the new and un-Patronized Gladiators were, by nature, not at all private. Thus, while Vinroth held up tunics for Taslin, most of the rest of the women were watching with interest. “I like the violet one. I think it brings out your eyes.” Marrhi leaned over her bunk and fingered the […]


  8. Chapter 10 – Valran – Hold

    November 5, 2014 by lynadmin

    “Hold this.” The terrifying ancient woman passed Valran her satchel. He held it, realized he was using it as a shield, and shifted it so he was in more of a valet pose. He could do valet. It wasn’t what he’d signed up for, but he could do valet. She seemed to approve. “Good. Good […]


  9. Chapter 8 – Valran – Come

    5

    October 7, 2014 by lynadmin

    “Come.” The female voice, again. Valran didn’t move. “Come, Valran Servus. I am buying you.” He risked looking up, now. It didn’t seem like the wisest idea, but there was something about her voice that demanded attention. So up Valran looked, into eyes like amber. “Ma’am.” It seemed a safe bet, the way she was […]


  10. Chapter 6 – Valran – Thrust

    0

    September 6, 2014 by lynadmin

    This chapter contains material that some may find NSFW “Thrust out your hips more.” “Now you’re just making fun of me.” “No, I’m telling you what to do.” Bicla put her hands on Valran’s hips and pushed them forward. “Like that. Now you look…” “Like a ten-piece whore on a street corner.” “No, no, at […]
