Disclaimer: I am not the BBC. I am not making money from this. (I am, however, having a great deal of fun.)
I arrived shaking with terror, but the alien Master looked surprisingly human. "Strip," he told me. I have certification. I do not give those massages. Still, I am unashamed of my body, and I wish to live. He studied me with something colder than lust. Something... familiar.
During the massage he was motionless, requesting nothing improper. After, he said, "Get dressed". He told the guards, "She'll do. Cell 23-B." I finally understood his look. My uncle Haakon trains horses. He tests every new animal that enters his barn.
They led me away, and despite my clothing, I felt naked.
