adira kneels on the big stone terrace of that amazing building, which seems to belong to very important persons here on this strange world. She kneels which both legs closed, which I would learn later as the tower position, on my side there is a bucket filled with water standing
adira doesn‘t understand any word of the language on this planet, but she does understand well, what is supposed to do, as another girl gave her the filled bucket and pointed on the stoned terrace. At least she gave her a rep cloth and said something adira couldn‘t understand. The girl was wearing a short tunika, which show her body in a very beautiful way, her breasts were covered and she was wearing a belt on which a whip was fastened
adira looks to the girl, jerks as she command something and starts right away to scrub the stones with the rep cloth carefully. The girl disappears and adira finds herself as a slave on a strange planet far away from her home, from earth, where she was captured a week ago. Of course it is another planet, the air is clear and fills her lungs with fresh air and gives her power she didn‘t had before in her whole life
adira feels the sun shining hot and she wipes the sweat off her face. She cleans the rep cloth in the water bucket and wrings it out before she continue scrubbing the floor, kneeling or crawling on her four. After cleaning and scrubbing the first third of the terrace, she sees the water very dirty and stands up, takes the bucket and walks into the building, looking for the instruction girl
adira: instead of the girl she comes across a man, which is standing powerful in front of her. What kind of men are they? He seems not to be a gentleman, who would take the bucket and helps her carrying it to the waste tub and carrying it back with clean water. No he is a man of this planet, a barbarian man, just wild and not knowing, that adira is a intelligent and well educated earth woman. Doesn‘t he know how to tread a woman?
adira looks at that man and she remembers at the pain of the whip. No not again she wants to feel the whip and she kneels again in that position, which the instructor girl has shown her. The instructor girl almost is standing herself but once adira was her as well kneeling in front of such man, with the different that her legs were spread wide.
adira shivers while the man grins at her. He says something, his voice sounds not angry but… adira looks up to him and says „Sorry I can‘t understand you. I need fresh water“ and pointed of the bucket with waste water. The man laughs and pointed to small round stairs and makes a gesture which she understands as permission to continue her work
adira rises back on her feet and steps down the stairs, where she meets the instruction girl. adira points on the bucket and looks at the girl. The girls takes smiling the bucket and disappears. After one or two minutes, she returned with a near filled bucket and hands it to adira.
adira takes the bucket, smiles warmly to the girl and hurries back to the terrace. The instruction girl seems to be pleased! adira feels the first time on this planet herself happy. Maybe this could be not so bad, to life here on this world. She remembers at the man. How strong and powerful he was. She feels ashamed that she wanted to be touched by that man.
adira scrubs the rest of the terrace, once again she has to refill the bucket with fresh water, once again she returns to the place and finishes her chore. What is she doing here? Isn‘t that work of a slave? She touches the steel at her neck. Isn‘t that collar a sign of be property? She was leashed sometime like a dog. She was treated like an animal. But it couln‘d be true… slavery is forbidden! She takes again a deep breath, looks up in the sky where she sees three moons. This is not earth, On this world.. she thinks afraid, slavery is true. Touching her collar, looking at herself, kneeling naked on the stones, just finished with cleaning, being whipped she realizes and whispers with tears in her eyes „I am a slave!“
