Once inside her seventh floor apartment I steered Bryana toward my room. It had become a given for her to sleep in my bed, not that we’d done much sleeping the last few nights. Between talking, exploring our compatibility and the early stages of what might in time become a fully fledged D/s relationship, plus some very satisfying sexual marathons, sleep didn’t stand much chance.
At the door, she suddenly roused from her lethargy and tried to pull away from me “No, I can’t…I want to be alone.”
“Are you sure?” I’d have thought being alone tonight was the last thing she’d have wanted. I didn’t understand her propensity for isolation rather than sharing. The concept went against my natural instinct which was to take care of her, to provide the comfort and security to soothe away all her fears, but it was her choice. I couldn’t force her into staying with me if she wanted to be alone.
“Yes…” Bryana shuddered and cast her gaze to the floor. “After what happened tonight I feel dirty and I can’t bear for you to look at me or touch me.”
“Okay, whatever makes you happy.” I didn’t understand her position but I changed direction toward her room and stopped at the door. “I want you to know I’m here if you need me for anything.”
Bryana refused to meet my gaze, though I recognized the note of relief in her voice. I released her, opened the door and stood back so she could enter. “Sleep tight. We’ll talk tomorrow when you feel better.” She didn’t respond but simply moved into the room and closed the door firmly in my face.
Needless to say, I couldn’t sleep. The hubbub in my brain refused to quieten down. Instead I processed the night’s events, examining them endlessly from every angle, trying to figure out why Esmée would want to torture Bryana. Was it revenge – for Bryana looking elsewhere, jealousy, or something more sinister? Revenge didn’t seem in any way logical, since Bryana hadn’t even formed a new relationship when the reign of terror started. Besides which, Esmée had a new love interest and a new sub to dominate. Jealousy, maybe but unlikely, I mentally shook my head. The more sinister explanation, however, made perfect sense to me. A case of: ‘even though we’re not together any more I still want to control you and, if I can’t keep you under my thumb, I’ll mess with your head to make damned sure nobody else can have you’. Marisa’s role in this little drama was easily explained. She probably just did as she was told, seizing upon the chance to please her Mistress while loving every minute of being allowed to torment her lover’s ex. I would need to work extra hard to break the hold that Esmée still had over Bryana’s mind...
