"There you go, my Lord. Now. Now, remember what you called me?"

"I've called you a lot of things." His voice held real fear.

"I know you have. But right now, we're talking about The Princess of Al-Ben."

"Made-up. Everyone knows she vanished. Everyone wants to fuck royalty."

"She vanished." Stavanna nodded. "And right now, you are going to call me princess. And I am going to call you the Lord of the Springs."

He paled. "Let me out of this."

"I am yours, my Lord. But you are powering the Mechanism right now."

"Stavanna..."

"Princess, Lord Daran."

"Shit. Princess."

"Blood."

Her master turned a little pale. Stavanna found this intriguing.

"Just a pinch, Master, Daran. Just a pinch. But the blood is necessary." She stroked his hands, until, unwillingly, he opened them out. Another lever, and the mechanism grabbed each of his fingers.

"Necessary? Why?" He wasn't trembling, quite, but his voice was quavering.

"This machine was made in the dark days after the collapse, Master. It needs fuel."

He twitched. She kissed each of his fingers in turn, and then again, as ten little needles pierced him. "A soul machine."

"Yes, master." Behind him, the Mechanism awoke.

Stavanna's Master sat in the brass-and-copper chair, his hands resting lightly on the armrests. "It's almost a throne."

"Indeed. It was sent here as a throne. I'm not surprised they locked it away." Stavanna pulled three more pieces from her bracelets, and grabbed the first of the levers. "Without the keys, of course, it does nothing."

"And with the keys?"

She turned one key, and pulled the corresponding lever down. "It does quite a bit. A second key, a second lever. The restraints clamped shut.

"Princess..."

"It's just a little pain, my lord. A very little blood. Just a little."

The Prince did not know the Mechanism was there. Of that, Stavanna was certain. If he'd known... things would be different, in one of a dozen ways.

It took four components of her bracelets to open the door. She was glad she didn't need any of the tricks in her collar; she didn't want her Master to know about those tricks yet.

Inside, the door closed behind them, the Mechanism glimmered and shone. A chair... nominally. A crank, several levers...

"What is it?"

"It is the most beautiful creation in all the world. And the most deadly. Will you sit?"

"Now." Eventually he stretched, wincing. "Princess, I think we are going to clean me out."

She thought she'd misinterpreted him, but he held out his hand to her, so she took it. "Master?"

"Daran." His correction was wry. "The set-up is already in the bathroom. I'd thought to clean you out..."

"You put yourself in my hands, Master."

"And you did... as I expected. And now you will clean me. All of me."

She looked at the enema kit, sitting on the basin, and nodded. "Yes, master. I will cleanse you. And then I will clean you."

She had thought he probably would. "Yes, my Master." She untied him, carefully, letting him down as if every knot undone was a sacrament.

"Your wrist, my Master." She washed his hands and arms with scented oil. She'd gotten her blows in. Now it was his turn. "Your legs, my Master."

She bowed her head when he had been freed, dropped to her knees, and pressed her forehead to the floor. "I am yours."

"Stay." His voice rumbled. "Stay, while I-" he grunted. "Stretch. Recover."

"Yes, Master."

"Silently."

She pressed her head tighter to the floor, and silently, she waited.

"Lay down on the bed." The four-poster would be perfect for this. She began tying knots before he could change his mind.

His packs had even provided pulleys. A good thing; he was heavier than her. She rigged the bed up quickly, while he tugged against her ropes. And then she lifted him up.

Her fingers were thick on the buttons and laces, but he helped her, tender as he cased her in silk and lace. "Tell me, Princess." His hand lingered on the collar. "Will you serve me in your bower?"

"In my..." He'd steered her towards the bed, which had a look about it of a royal chamber, deep here in the castle. "Yes, my Lord. How would you like me?"

He allowed her to rest in the wagon while he drove to the castle. The giant edifice was a relic of bygone eras, refitted for the new day. And in the wagon, he dressed her, this time in a princess' finest.

"You will be my lady;" he tugged on the collar; "my captured princess."

"Yes, master." It was the truth, after all.

"And you will struggle, a little, to make it look good. Fight a bit.”

He led her in chains into the castle, his ticket to the prince's attention. Thus chained, she pretended to fight. Perhaps too well.

This is an experiment in a couple different ways, and a creation of, possibly, an entirely new 'verse. It's also a second attempt at filling Bingo with 100-word stories on my Kink Bingo Card.

The Collar

"You know, once this is on..."

The collar was the handiwork of an Enclave: beautiful, fine, filled with clockwork mechanisms and unknown trickery. It was cold in Stavanna's hands, but she expected no less.

"I know." She nodded at her mentor and handler. "There's no taking it off." She lifted her hair off her neck and handed the collar to Rose.

"And no coming back. You're certain, then?" Before Stavanna answered, Rose was holding the cold collar against her throat.

"Certain." She closed her eyes as the locking mechanism clicked shut. It fit her neck perfectly and irrevocably. "Steel certain."
