The moment I hear the disappointment in her voice, I become angry and slap my hand down on the table roughly, the china clinking as it bounces with the sharp force of it.

"YOU SEE?!" I shout at Richard, Ljuba flinching more than he does as my expression twists with anguish and guilt. "You ruined it."

"Aww," Richard tsks, an exaggerated frown pulling down the corners of his mouth. He inhales through his nose, dismissing his concern before he nods toward my arm. "You've torn your stitches. Try not to bleed on the table cloth."

"I'll get a nurse," I say weakly, using the opportunity to push my chair back from the table.

"SIT. DOWN." I flinch at Richard's order, his voice booming deeply with anger at her unbidden initiative.

I sit promptly, shrinking into my seat as I look up at Richard shamefully. 

"He needs a nurse."

"And I will get it for him," Richard says sharply, his hand dipping into his pocket for his cell phone. "Don't ever presume to act without direction."

"Don't you think she should be told the rules before she's punished for breaking them?" I whisper, avoiding Richard's gaze as I stare blankly at my soup.

"Did I not just tell her?" Richard scowls. "Believe me, you'll know when I'm punishing her."

My jaw tenses as I stare at the bowl of soup, sitting untouched in front of me as I listen to Richard's phone beep as his fingers move over it deftly. 

"What other rules are there, then?" I ask roughly, looking up at him. "I'd hate to offend your manners."

"Let's be honest, dear," Richard smiles as he puts his phone down, taking his time to straighten it beside his silverware. The gesture leaves me tense, my whole body stilling as I wait for the inevitable. And, predictably, he lashes out, grabbing Ljuba by the hair roughly as he jerks her mere inches from his face. "It has nothing to do with manners, and everything to do with the sheer perverse pleasure I get out of dominating you."

"Richard!" I yelp out, careful to keep in my seat as I scramble to grab his arm with numb fingers, blood smearing across his pristine white sleeve as it soaks through the bandage where my stitches have torn. "Please, stop!"

I tremble as I stare at Richard, practically baring my teeth at him as I struggle to even my breathing. I have to struggle not to look towards Marnin, the flash of blood in the corner of my eye enough to send my heart racing.

"You're going to kill him," I say weakly, whimpering as his grip in my hair tightens.

I can him inhale deeply, calming himself as he looks her over, as he sniffs her. My heart hammers until he finally lets her go and sits back, looking in disgust at the mess I've made on his shirt.

"Yes," he says flatly as he shakes my hand off and picks up a napkin to try to blot some of the blood from his sleeve. "I am. It's a treat I'm looking forward to, but not today."

I grimace at his cavalier remark, picking at the fabric of my dress as I stare at the table blankly. I can hear the bustle of servants at the edge of the kitchen, and I tense as one arrives to retrieve my untouched bowl of soup so they can dish out the main course. 

"Thank you," I say to the servant as he sets down my plate, his head bowing just slightly as he moves to the other side to tend to Marnin.

I'm shaking as the servants place our food for us, dishing us up with a fragrant meal. It smells good, it always smells good, always is good. But I can't help but notice that Richard isn't being served the same meal, my head cocking toward him and then toward Ljuba. Hers is the same as mine...

"Eat up," Richard smiles as he digs into his own food, my uneasiness rising as I move the food around on my plate suspiciously.

I stare at my food, any appetite I'd had in the past few days having disappeared as soon as we'd walked into the room with Richard. I don't even lift my hands to the table as I drop my gaze to my lap again, shaking my head slightly. 

"Not hungry."

"You're going to insult these poor servants who worked hard to prepare a nice meal for you by refusing to eat it because you object to the company that shares the meal with you?" Richard asks, my heart dropping further as I try not to make it obvious that I'm not eating, either.

"I don't think your servants give a single shit if I eat their food or not." I say more fiercely as I look up at him, ignoring the pained expression on Marnin's face.

"You will eat what's in front of you," Richard orders icily, watching her carefully as I try to push bits of my own food off into a napkin so I can hide it.

My teeth grind as I reach up to grab one of my forks, my hand lingering there as I stare at the food in front of me. Without further thought, my hand catches the edge of my plate before I sling it off the table, leaving my place setting bare aside some of the greens that had fallen off as the plate flew off the table. 

I give Richard an angry look as I reach to pick up the piece of asparagus, popping it in my mouth pointedly.

"Done."

"God damn you, you fucking bitch!" Richard snarls as he throws his own fork on the table angrily.

"Richard," I whine, drawing a warning finger from him as I freeze with my fork over my plate. My heart is pounding as I debate disobeying his order, my my teeth catching on my lip before I finally spit the question out before he can go after Ljuba, my voice cracking a little as I do. "Please... it's the nurse, isn't it?? The nurse you sent the mutt after... please don't make us eat it."

"What?" The look of anger morphs into disgust as I look at Marnin, my lips curling into a frown as I look at the slab of meat on his plate.

"You're feeding us that woman!?"

My stomach churns as I hunch in my seat, a hand moving to cover my mouth as I gag. My limbs shake as I shake my head, tears welling in my eyes.

"Wh- wh- why? Wha- Why!?"

"Why?" Richard scoffs as I struggle to keep myself from dry heaving over my plate. "Because it's fun, that's why."

My hands rub at my face as I scoot further from the table, hunched over my knees as I take in heaving gulps of air.

"Would you like another option?" Richard asks as he takes a bite of his own food. "I'll make it easy for you. I don't care which of you takes up the offer, it will spare you both. All you have to do is say yes."

My head spins as I look up at Marnin, looking for some sort of clue as to what to expect as I nod weakly. 

"Fine, yes, just... Not this."

"Marnin?" Richard asks, his heart betraying his motives as I shake my head instantly, tears welling in my eyes. "Do you want to tell her what to do or shall I?"

"No," I continue shaking my head fiercely, trying to deny what's coming as I push away from the table. "No, no, no."

"No?" he asks before shrugging. "Alright, then," he smiles. "I'll let Ljuba choose who she'll please tonight."
