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.
PAIN has an element of blank;
It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there were
A day when it was not.
It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

The car arrived at 9.00 am as she had been told it would and though she was reluctant to leave Eric she knew he too needed to be on the move so she steeled herself and headed out. Agnetha was already in the large limousine with blacked out windows and after hugging her she used her professional name and said "Dear Isabeau, I have been given clear instructions - I am to collar you, remove your underwear and blindfold you. I'm afraid you are also required to be silent from now on and only speak when asked a direct question. Finally will be referred to as Slut during the stay - a shame because your given name is so much prettier - now do as you are told."
Agnetha was not someone whose instructions were taken lightly. They had met in New York and worked together a few times when Monica put them in touch with a client who wished to be "persuaded" by an attractive woman he would meet in a bar to submit to an erotic BDSM session before "discovering" that he had in fact been kidnapped in order to satisfy the needs of a woman who was going to subject him to to a punishment caning that would leave him bruised and bleeding.
After that first time they had discovered that they enjoyed each other’s company and developed such a good understanding that they worked together again whenever the chance arose. Agnetha was 6ft tall, perfectly proportioned and Isobel had once been on the receiving end of Agnetha's cane in order to satisfy a switch client and therefore knew just how skilled she was - it had been painful and produced clear markings but with relatively little damage done. She really hoped that most of her punishment would be delivered by Agnetha rather than Eric over the coming week. Nevertheless, as the silent journey continued, she found she was dreading what was to follow once they arrived.
After what seemed like hours they reached their destination and Agnetha led Isobel into the house while the chauffeur followed with their luggage. They were shown to a lounge and Agnetha was told to take a seat. Moments later Eric entered the room alone carrying a leather case. He welcomed Agnetha and said "Help me prepare the slut please". Isobel bridled at this but knew that she needed to play the part of the submissive and do it well. The case was opened to reveal a number of straps with D rings attached. Isobel was quickly stripped and the straps placed on ankles, wrists and around her waist. "Please take her into the next room and secure her there" he instructed.
Once Isobel was secured Agnetha used the pretence of checking the bindings to whisper in Isobel's ear "I will take care of you" before re-joining Eric in the lounge. Eric began to explain what he had in mind for the next 7 days. It was his intention to mix business and pleasure it seemed. The business was to be a series of experiments examining how the human body responds to both pain and pleasure. He would be using electronic equipment to measure physical reactions in great detail. The pleasure was indulging himself by attempting to take the submissive beyond her limits physically and mentally. He required Agnetha to coach him during this so that he could refine his skills with the whip and cane as well as learning more about psychological dominance techniques. They would be joined by his lover, Cassiopeia, for most of the sessions and he expected Agnetha to also teach her how to inflict pain effectively.
"We want you to deliver a preliminary whipping immediately so we can get some base line readings about the slut's response's to pain" he said heading toward the other room. Agnetha was surprised to find a woman whose stature was similar to her own already there and realised that there must be a second door. The woman was busy attaching sensors to various parts of Isobel's anatomy and ignored their entry until she was satisfied with her work. "Give her fifty strokes today, 25 with the cane to her arse and the 25 with a whip to her back." she said directing Agnetha to a collection of canes, whips and floggers racked up on the wall. "I prefer to use my own tools" she said.
Once Agnetha's case had been brought to the room she began her work. She prepared Isobel's behind using a leather paddle and once it was warmed up moved on to the caning. Marks quickly appeared and such was her skill that they rarely intersected. Isobel was taking this well so far but began to struggle to avoid crying out as they moved into the final 5 strokes. Once these were delivered the nurse who had been waiting quietly examined Isobel and applied liberal quantities of ointment before stepping back and nodding to Agnetha. This time she gagged Isobel and chose a single tail whip. As she began she could see Isobel pulling against the restraints as the whip bit into her flesh but she seemed determined not to show how much pain she was experiencing. Again, on completion the nurse applied ointment and stood back.
It had been hours since Isobel had spoken and the pain demanded that she vocalise - and somehow this denial seemed only to intensify her pain. As she tried to regularise her breathing she heard Ethan say to Cassiopeia "Do you want to fuck her or shall I?" before catching a response “You may while I observe". Without being asked Agnetha spread and lubricated Isobel's cunt and as an afterthought also lubed her anus. Ethan stepped forward his cock now in his hand and thanked her. He chose her cunt and carefully inserted himself then held her by the shoulders. As he began to thrust, he softly said "I hope we haven't hurt you too badly my dear. Perhaps I can make you come and take your mind off the pain."
All the women in the room heard this but their reactions differed greatly. Isobel felt repulsed and had to work even harder to keep her cunt loose while Agnetha merely felt a little soiled by the notion of someone apologising for her work. But Cassiopeia reacted most strikingly telling at Ethan to stop snivelling and treat her like the slut she was and now fuck er annally. The nurse gave no indication of how she felt at all. Despite her disgust Isobel thought she should at least give the impression of having an orgasm even with the his cock now thrusting into her anal passage. She did this well enough to fool Ethan as he expelled his cum into her but she didn't fool Agnetha or, of course, the sensors recording her physical responses.
Agnetha was asked to take "the slut" away which she willingly did accompanied by the nurse. Back in the bedroom she whispered to Isobel "Assume we are being overheard" as she began to prepare her for the night. Once she had emptied her bowels and bladder and been cleaned more ointment was applied. After she had been secured and made as comfortable as was possible in the circumstances Agnetha gently kissed her forehead and whispered "Try to sleep - tomorrow is going to be a big day."
Agnetha returned to the lounge where she found Ethan alone. "Cassiopeia is processing the readings in the lab" he said. "and I want to talk to you alone - what would I have to do to be able to fuck you?" Agnetha smiled "25 strokes of my favourite cane then a pegging - If you can still get a hard on when I've finished you may stick your tiny dick in my cunt. Many have tried but few have managed it but you're welcome to try. If you are serious we'll start with your enema"
Moments later he meekly followed her out of the door.
