Cassiopeia, the Queen of Aethopia, was the wife of King Cephus. She was beautiful but vain and guilty of hubris in saying that she and her daughter, Andromeda, were more beautiful than the daughters of the sea god Nereus. This angered Poseidon who caused the lands to flood. Later he punished her further by binding her to a chair in the heavens, so that she would revolve upside down half of the time.

It had been a difficult night and Isobel felt soiled in every sense but was surprised when the door opened and it was Cassiopeia who entered and released her. The woman was impossibly beautiful, perfect skin, perfect hair and a perfect body clothed in latex. She dropped a package on the bed then knelt to unfasten Isobel. "Clean yourself, Slut, and after the nurse has examined you put these on and wait". The voice betrayed no accent and no emotion and remembering she was to be silent Isobel resisted responding other than by nodding her head.
The nurse entered and after helping Isobel shower began to apply oil to her body. Isobel was puzzled at first but once the parcel was opened understood. It contained heavy latex bands with 'D' rings attached which the nurse helped her to place around her waist, thighs, ankles, upper arms, wrists and finally her neck were put back on. Finally she was helped into a pair of 4 inch heels. A moment later Agnetha entered and clipped a lead to the neck band whispering as she did "Last night I fucked that little bastard's ass-hole until it bled!" and Isobel had to work hard to suppress a smile.
Once she was spreadeagled in the lab sensors were applied again but this time her piercings were wired to an electrical device. She hadn't seen Ethan's face but when she heard him say "I'll start with 25 today" she remembered Agnetha's comment upstairs and wished she hadn't shared it.
Ethan began without any warm up and silenced Agnetha's objections. He delivered 12 hard strokes and Isobel struggled to stay still and silent. As he delivered the 13th she cried out and he stopped. "Gag the slut" he instructed. Agnetha obeyed but took the chance to whisper "Hang in there" but Ethan screamed at her "Do not speak to the slut"
The remaining strokes were more brutal and Isobel was shaking uncontrollably by the end as tears coursed down her face. Cassiopeia now approached and quickly inserted probes in both her anus and vagina which she connected to the equipment she was using. For the next few minutes she worked the controls and it became clear that the sensations Isobel was now experiencing were not painful at all. Agnetha knew that her friend could exercise extraordinary control of her body and wasn't surprised when she began to show signs of genuine arousal. "Allow me to help" she said approaching Isobel without waiting for an answer and placing a finger on her clitoris. Within a few moments the orgasm was on its way and Isobel began to spasm and pull against her restraints.
"Take her down for now" Cassiopeia instructed and with help from the nurse Agnetha obliged and they set about doing what they could for Isobel's bleeding bottom. On the other side of the room Cassiopeia was now allowing Ethan to apply sensors to her body and also place a metal headband on her.
Cassiopeia's voice made clear her dissatisfaction moments later. "I can't feel anything - you need to create a stronger reaction" she told Ethan who in turn instructed that Isobel be spreadeagled once more. "You can't do anything more to her arse today" Agnetha told him and the nurse concurred "There is already a risk of permanent scarring". He seemed unconcerned as he selected a whip which he began using on Isobel's back but after a couple of strokes he stopped and told them to gag her again. Seeing the severity of the strokes Agnetha decide that 25 would have to be the maxim regardless of the 100 stroke agreement.
The marks on her back were deep and raw as the 25th stroke was delivered. Agnetha signalled that he should cease and told him that was all she could take that day. He seemed reluctant but stepped away however Cassiopeia pushed him aside and grabbed a different whip from the rack. Agnetha quickly realised that this was a metal whip that would tear flesh to shreds. She screamed "She does not consent" but Cassiopeia turned towards her and calmly said "Keep out bitch or I'll use it on your face". her lack of emotion was chilling.
Agnetha had no illusions about an intervention by Ethan and prepared to intervene physically. She moved towards Cassiopeia intending to use her martial arts skills to ground her only to be hit harder than she imagined it was possible for a human being to hit another. Nevertheless she picked herself up and went again only to be felled by a punch to the jaw that saw her unconscious before she hit the ground. By the time she came round she realised that she too was now restrained and the woman was already using the whip on Isobel. It was with an odd mixture of fear and relief that she saw Isobel's head slump forward and realised that she had passed out.
Ethan was now sitting at the desk and using the controls while Cassiopeia struck Isobel again and again. The blood that ran down her body merely confirming that she needed medical attention and very soon. At that moment the door to the lab opened and before any of them could react a stun grenade went off.
Isobel slowly returned to consciousness and found she was lying face down in a hospital bed. She turned her head and saw that there was a man in uniform sitting beside her. "It's me" said Eric "Don't try to talk yet - they are going to put you in an induced coma while your back heals but I told them I needed to speak to you first - sometimes rank has its privileges and they agreed." After he had reassured her that Henry was fine and that he, personally, would take care of him he explained what had taken place and that Agnetha's cry of "She does not consent" was the pre-arranged signal for their intervention. He also reassured her that Ethan was under arrest and facing serious charges though Cassiopeia had not been affected by the grenade and somehow evaded his team and disappeared without trace.
He went on to explain that the funds she had been offered for the work with Ethan had already been transferred to her account and as far as he could see it was clean money so she would be able to keep it. They had discussed the cottage when he visited her flat and now she could buy it.
He went on to make her an offer. It was very likely that the weeks in a coma would effect her memory in any case and he could arrange for her to receive an additional drug that would enable her to wake up, healthy in the cottage ready to begin a new life in safety with a new identity but knowing nothing of what had happened in the past few days. This sounded blissful but before agreeing she needed know that Henry would be waiting there for her. Eric leaned forward and kissed her brow "Have no fear - Henry will be with you there" he said. A doctor then spoke to her and said he was going to give her an injection. She managed to mumble "Thank you Eric" as her consciousness started to fade but as it did she realised that she hadn't said she also wanted him to be part of her new life and now it was too late.
