Part I The second strap had had the texture of sandpaper, the effect of which was that instead of suffering an overwhelming sting all at once, Janice had to endure a rasping slow burn that got worse and worse until she would have begged for almost any amount of the heavier leather. “Mr Drayton,” she […]


Part I The winter got very much worse before it got better and by the end of January their food supplies were low and they were left with only the grimmest fare. It was a situation that did little to aid the humour of Sofia or Ivan and within the confines of the small house […]


Our story began here. It was harder than she thought to follow the action once it got outside. Mary trudged like a condemned woman naked and exposed to the breeze while Drake followed her at a short distance. Sylvia could only leave the house once they had got clear of the garden and she quickly […]


Our story began here. Sylvia had no idea what was happening to her. Each morning she would wake up and consider how crazy her whole situation was. She tried to tell herself that she had lost control and had no choice, but it was a lie. She had made a choice the day she had […]

“Amanda, you are required in the library.” The words clawed at her stomach and her jaw tightened. She knew everyone was watching her, but she dare not remove her gaze from a fixed point next to the clock on the mantelpiece lest their eyes meet. “Amanda, did you hear me?” Sir John’s voice was insistent […]


Here are four pictures from TipTopper. All but the bottom right has been seen here before but it was worth another look. All four of the pictures depict what the Victorians and Edwardians would have a called a ‘Great Girl’ getting her comeuppance. That is to say a young woman who might ordinarily be considered […]


The Governess

15Nov11

At first glance an outsider might have wondered which of the two young women was the governess and which her charge. Save for the fact that Eugenia was standing bare-bottomed in the corner that is. Constance, the older woman, was barely 23 and had been Eugenia’s governess for little over a year. Although quite tall, […]
