Mistress Anfisa caught her slave sleeping in her bed and she was mad at him. She does not share her bed with anyone and despite it being very comfortable, he did not have any right to sleep there. She rode him like a pony and she whipped him for what he had done. She did not want him to repeat that mistake and that is why she punished him as cruelly as she did.
Princess Cynthia wanted to test how strong her slave was. So she made him lift her high. She sat on his shoulders as he struggled to carry her around. She warned him against dropping her. If that were to happen, he would curse the day he was born. So the slave did his best to make sure she did not fall. Then she rode him like a pony and whipped him.
