“But slaves are generally well trained in placatory behaviors,” I said.

“And they serve well, naked, in the victory orgies,” I said.

“But then even free women may be used in such orgies,” I said.
“I do not think they would long remain free,” she said.
“No,” I said. “That would presumably be their last night of freedom.”
“Do they serve naked at the orgy, as do the slaves?” she asked.
“Of course,” I said.
“Are such women sometimes enslaved before the orgy?” she asked.
“Yes,” I said, “presumably that they will then understand the totality of what will be expected of them at the feast. Too, some commanders think this is an excellent introduction to her new condition for a former free woman.”
“They are probably right,” she said.
“We must get you home soon,” I said.
“Why?” she asked.
“You are tempting,” I said.
“But if I were a slave,” she said, “I would be subject to penalties.”
“Yes,” I said. “The master would own you.”
“I could even be killed,” she said.
“Yes,” I said.

“It is one thing, of course,” I said, “to be subject to penalties, and it is quite another for them to be inflicted.”
“That is true,” she said.
