Jesalyn’s family have sent her off to be gainfully employed by the Steeds, an eccentric, enigmatic Viscount and Viscountess.
Though the chaste, inexperienced, virginal Jesalyn is assured her that her new job will be strict, proper and austere, she arrives to find that everything is not quite as it seems in the stately manor.
In the day time, the Steeds both play unusual games with their household staff, and at night, curious moans and groans float down the manor house's corridors to Jesalyn’s bedroom.
She decides to investigate, and what she finds will both shock her sense of propriety and bring forth heretofore unknown desires that Jesalyn is eager to satisfy.
This is a 4500-word short story involving a maid's first time as she is disciplined by the nobleman and noblewoman who employ her.
