After the shock (sorry) of the electric pinwheel, I decided to let Ariel have a little time on her back. Suitably
spread and confined with steel, of course. Now... which of the delightful items on the torture table should we try out next?
Ariel thought that the elastic bands wouldn't hurt much. After all it sounded so silly, just being "pinged" on the soles of the
feet with elastic bands.
Not just any elastic bands. These are nice strong, broad ones- and give them a good pull back, and there is plenty of stored energy in those. Let them go, and the sting is almost unbearable, especially on soft soles already sensitized by the cane! I don't think I've ever heard her swear so much (so much so she needed to be disciplined to keep a more civil tongue in her head). It wasn't just the pain, it was the humiliation of being made to scream by something that looked so... silly. Ariel hates not being taken seriously... :-)
