Scene 1 – A Slave’s Life
It was a rare pleasure, bathing in a heated bath. The life of a slave was rarely this pleasant; too bad he could not enjoy it. For as long as he could remember Benect had been a house boy in the masters retinue, and as masters went his had been kind. The work was difficult, but he had not had to endure the elements working in the fields with the older boys and men. When he came of age, he expected his life to change; he had not expected to be sold!
Benural was waiting when he left the bath. He dried off and fastened the cloak about his shoulders. It was cold this time of year, and though he would be displayed naked for the buyers, no one wanted a frostbitten slave. “Brother, I do hope you aren’t purchased by one those southlanders. I hear they favor boys for pleasuring themselves!” said Benural. Benect had heard of this practice and worse, and the fear of becoming a pleasure slave was a reality of the life of a slave bound for the market. Fear of becoming the toy of some sadistic master kept him awake nights.
