Journey's End

Swallowing her fear, Alice peeled off her holdups before she had to be told. Her legs tingled as they were released from the constricting nylon and she curled her toes into the soft pile of the carpet. Out of the corner of her eye she caught a glimpse of herself in a full-length mirror, standing naked before this stranger. It was all she could do to resist the urge to cover herself but she was too frightened of his disapproval. She didn’t know what to do with her hands. They hung by her sides, her fingers plucking nervously at the gooseflesh on her thighs. 
       ‘Are you cold?’
       She shook her head. Just nervous, she thought but didn’t say. It wasn’t necessary; he could see she was terrified. He also seemed to be relishing her fear.
       ‘Hold out your hands,’ he said.
       She obeyed at once, both the command and her instant compliance sending hot little pulses through her body. When she saw the ropes she gasped and took one hesitant step back, but she didn’t lower her hands. She saw his eyes register her moment of fright and then his lips curled in a smile that was both sexy and sinister.
       ‘I asked you if you were a good girl, Alice, and you told me you were.’
       Her face burned at the gentle chastisement. She swallowed audibly. ‘I am,’ she said in a voice that was barely a whisper. ‘I’m sorry.’
       ‘I’m sorry what?’
       Blood rushed so violently to her head that for a moment she thought she might faint. ‘I’m sorry, sir.’
       ‘That’s better.’
       He pushed her wrists together and then wrapped the coil of rope around them. Tight enough to hold without being painful. He knotted the rope and then wound the free ends up between her wrists, tying them off to create a pair of coiled manacles.
       Alice didn’t need to test whether they would hold her. She wouldn’t have tried to escape for anything.
