Chapter Eight: Cat of Nine Tails:
Rihoko made it home the next morning and walked into the living room. The young mother leapt up when she heard loud snoring from the couch. She saw Lucy passed out on her stomach. Confusion rushed onto her face as Rihoko slowly approached Lucy and gently tapped her on the shoulder.
â€œHey,â€ she whispered, â€œHey, hey, hey.â€ Lucy jerked her head upwards. She stared on at Rihoko through blood-shot eyes. The young mother blinked at her.
â€œUhâ€¦ who are you?â€ she asked. Lucy stared at her slightly confused.
â€œWho are you?â€ she asked back.
â€œIâ€™m Rihoko, Annaâ€™s roommate. Who are you?â€ the other woman answered her. Lucy sat up, blinking.
â€œWhy are you here?â€ she asked.
â€œI live hereâ€¦ with Anna, my daughter, and a lodger. Who are you?â€ Rihoko answered her, tilting her head. Lucy looked around in the dimly-lit room.
â€œWhereâ€™s Barbie and Tsuzuki at?â€ she asked. Rihoko really looked puzzled now.
â€œHuh?â€ the young mother asked, blinking.
â€œYou know, Barbie and Tsuzuki!â€ Lucy pressed. Rihoko blinked again.
â€œNoâ€¦ I know who Tsuzuki is, but whoâ€™s Barbie?â€ she responded, missing the whole boat. Lucy became stressed through her headache.
â€œYou know, Barbieâ€¦â€ she said, trying to spark something in the other womanâ€™s mind. Rihoko slowly shook her head.
â€œNoâ€¦â€ she replied. Lucy sighed aloud as she saw that this was going nowhere.
â€œYour roommate!â€ she yelled at last. The light bulb finally lit up in Rihokoâ€™s head.
â€œOh! You mean Anna!â€ she said.
â€œYes, her! Now where are she and Tsuzuki?â€ Lucy asked in distress.
â€œOut,â€ Rihoko said, looking around. Lucy threw back the blanket at that answer.
â€œOut? What do you mean out? Out where?â€ she asked. Rihoko shrugged.
â€œI donâ€™t know, just outâ€¦â€ she said slowly.
â€œOut as in together out?â€ the Goth woman asked in her face.
â€œHow should I know? I just got home and saw the note on the door!â€ Rihoko yelped. Lucy blinked again.
â€œNote?â€ she asked. Rihoko showed it to her and Lucy took the paper and read it.
â€œTheyâ€™re gone,â€ the Goth muttered. Rihoko nodded.
â€œI know,â€ she told her.
Meanwhile at the S&M shed at Wisteria House, Anna, Hotaru, and Emiko were preparing for another session.
â€œDitch the shirt!â€ she commanded with a grin. Anna grimaced at first, but complied. Her black Rolling Stones t-shirt hit the ground. Hotaru watched grinning as she saw Annaâ€™s pink and white bra.
â€œDo you want my skirt too?â€ their victim asked. Emiko smirked at her.
â€œIf you want toâ€¦â€ she suggested. Anna started to take off her short tan skirt but froze as she narrowed her eyes.
Theyâ€™re enjoying this, the woman thought. Emiko gave her a naughty grin.
â€œGet into position,â€ she ordered. The demons took it all in delight as Anna slowly did so. Emiko turned to her girlfriend.
â€œWhat whip should I use today?â€ she asked. The loli demon thought about that for a moment. A smirk came onto her face.
â€œCat of nine tails!â€ she chirped. Anna froze up after she heard those words. Emiko smiled and patted Hotaru on the head.
â€œYou sure?â€ she asked.
â€œYeah!â€ Hotaru cheered as she nodded. Her girlfriend kissed her on the nose.
â€œOkay then,â€ she said, â€œAs you wish!â€ Hotaru giggled as Emiko kissed her again. The butch demon got up off the black chest and walked over to the wall. She pulled off the good old cat of nine tails and walked over to Anna. The target tightly shut her eyes to the coming pain. Emiko smirked at her.
â€œGrit your teeth!â€ she commanded. Anna nodded and Emiko took the first lash. The target tried not to scream out. This lasted for about ten seconds. The pain kicked in her brain and Anna yelped out loud.
â€œTake it like a bitch!â€ the demon yelled.
â€œYeah!â€ Hotaru encouraged. Anna breathed in for more and Emiko whipped her again. The womanâ€™s breathing sped up as the lashes got worse. Hotaru felt herself getting wet in her white lacy panties. The action and sounds heightened the experience. She felt like she was watching a spicy lesbian porno. Hotaru panted like mad as her heart raced.
Emiko sped up with the whip on her targetâ€™s back. Anna tried her to keep conscious. The pain had become beyond unbearable. It wouldnâ€™t be long until she felt nothing. The pain could take over her whole body and numb it completely. And then what; die soulless?
No, Anna couldnâ€™t give up to a simple whipping to death. She had to take vengeance for Daisuke, Yumiko, and Kirika. If that meant taking a whipping to free her powers, alright then! Anna toughened up quick. Emiko grinned at the new challenge.
â€œYou had me worried for a moment there, bitch!â€ she barked, â€œI thought you would just spoil everything by passing out on me! Now, Iâ€™ll have more fun!â€ She lashed like a madwoman with more force behind the whipping. Anna gritted her teeth tighter with the pain.
I can take this!, she thought. The buzzed rang after twenty minutes. Emiko stepped back, panting. Anna breathed out heavily as Hotaru clapped overjoyed.
â€œYay!â€ she cheered, â€œBest show ever!â€ Emiko smiled and bowed.
â€œThanks,â€ she said, â€œThere will be an after party later tonight.â€ Hotaru squealed in delight.
â€œOoo; that would be great!â€ she chirped. Emiko proudly laughed aloud. Anna softly sighed to herself.
I knew it! Sheâ€™s using this as an excuse to get her and her girlfriend off at my expensive, she thought with a sweat drop on her head.
