Ana went through her various dress selections in that Elena provided for her. Selecting a simple cream and ivory pink knit dress, she put it on and slipped on pair of sandals that her boss also supplied for her. Checking herself in the mirror one more time, she let her long dark hair loose and reapplied the make-up she had been wearing the previous night before leaving the guest bedroom. She headed downstairs to the dining area where Christian, Elliot, and Elena were seated waiting for her.
“Ana you look breathtaking!” Elena smiled. Even the Grey siblings agreed as they kept staring at her. The young woman ignored their gawking as took a seat at the table. Rosalind entered from the kitchen to serve a glass of ice tea for her before returning back to the room. Opening her Louis Vuitton briefcase, Elena pulled out a large manila envelope containing several documents and spread the paperwork across the table. Then she addressed everyone. “Now we can start business.”
“Elena, don’t you think we should get Ana’s approval?” Elliot suggested. “I mean it would be good for her to know what she’s in for.”
“I thought we already covered that upstairs,” the older woman pointed out. “She is to become my newest Dominatrix and it will be your boys’ job to train her. Don’t you agree, Ana?”
The young intern did not know how to respond. It both intrigued her and scared her. “I…I…I suppose so.”
“Good,” Elena grinned. “Now we can begin.” She picked up the first document and read it out loud.

Ana’s head kept buzzing. She could bring herself to consider food list. Genital clamps? Fisting? What the hell were these people into? She could not possibly agree to these terms. Her mouth wanted to scoff at their audacity but she remained mum.
“You’re overwhelmed, aren’t you?” Elena inquired. She could sense her protégé’s apprehension. “Maybe even a little a scared?”
“Of course I’m scared!” The young woman shouted. “You throw this contract in my face with all this freaky, kinky shit and expect me to agree to this? Hell no!”
“I know this bucket list sounds really horrible,” smiled the older woman. “But I assure you its purpose is not to scare you but to intrigue you. We’re in the business of pleasure not pain. If you’re willing to keep an open mind you just might surprise yourself.”
Nervous energy shook the intern’s body. “I…I don’t know if I can do this.”
Elliot approached her. The closeness of his body made her feel things that did not think she was capable of. Wicked, pleasurable things that drew her near to him that told her to submit, she truly did want to explore it. The eldest sibling touched her face which surprised especially since she flinched being near strange men. With Elliot and even Christian, she felt safe.
“Trust us Ana,” his blue eyes comforted her. “We will never hurt you. You are the true Master. You agree on what Christian and I can do with you. Understand?”
“I’m…not sure,” she whispered.
“Ana, you’ll be in control at all times,” reassured Elena. “The point of your training is to make you strong not a weakling. Cast your fears aside and be the woman you were meant to be; strong independent, and sensual.”
“If I agree to this,” responded Ana. “Then I consent to whatever I’m willing to submit to. Is that clear?”
“Of course,” Elliot grinned.
“And I can walk away from this contract and no one gets hurt, right?”
“Exactly,” answered Christian. He displayed a wicked grin. “But I doubt you want to walk away.”
Ana rolled her eyes. The copper haired man could be so cocky. “Fine, I’ll do it! Where do I sign?”
“Right here,” said Elena pointing the paper toward her direction. All four cemented their partnership in ink. Even still Ana remained unconvinced.
“Oh I almost forgot!” The dark haired beauty blurted out. Her body swayed back and forth nervously. “I don’t know how to say this….you see I haven’t had that much experience with men. I’m a…”
“Holy shit! You’re a virgin!” Christian answered her question.
“Well then,” laughed Elena. “I guess you too are going to have to take extra special care of my protégé! She’s delicate.”
Orange is the color of royalty, regalness, and class. It also symbolizes vigilance. I certainly kept a watchful eye during this current situation I have put myself through. In retrospect, I never expected my shade of red to return to pink. In the beginning, I was full of rage coming from the middle of the scale shooting all the way to the highest tenth ladder of my anger. All I saw was fire, fury, and flame. Being called weak was the one thing I never wanted to hear. Yet, I had to face the truth. I was weak. I let the demons of my past make me a victim. It enraged me bringing by blood to the boil reaching highest temperature on the shade of crimson scale.
Now the scarlet has gone away. I am now pink, much calmer, than before. The shade on a scale of three brings in the orange color on my emotional pallet. Since I know the secrets of the Grey brothers, I no longer feel the fury inside me. Instead I have learned to put the past behind me to move on. Elliot and Christian are helping me cope, understand, and hopefully heal. I agree to be their little sexual experiment which is fine because I eventually have to lose my virginity to someone. At least it is someone I trust especially ones as handsome and dashing at the Grey brothers. I cannot wait. Is it wrong for me to think such thoughts? Even Jane Eyre had inner passions that she freely expressed with Edward Rochester. I should not feel guilty at all.
Speaking of guilt, I returned home only to find Jose ready to call missing persons. After calming him down, I lied to him and told that I drank too much to which the Grey brothers allowed me to spend the night in their guest room. Then the interrogation turned to sex. I assured him that I still remain a virgin. For now. Somehow he still did not believe me. If I am to be Elena’s protégé I certainly have to learn better ways of being discreet. Perhaps that the lesson I have learned by being on my third shade in the orange color spectrum of emotion.
