Justus Roux's Erotic Tales
Tara had always been curious about being a submissive and when she read a submissive’s journal, which was posted online, she knew this was the lifestyle she wanted to live. She found a club owned by a man named Master Gabriel. After being accepted into the club Tara put herself up for auction without thinking about it. Once at the auction she quickly began to wonder if she had made a mistake. Every man that came up to inspect her did not appeal to her. She couldn’t see herself serving them. She was about to give up and hope that whoever won her would at least be gentle. Then she heard his deep voice. The moment she laid eyes on Master Raven she was mesmerized.
Raven had no intention on going to the auction. He was tired of training submissives, which in the end weren’t what he needed and he wasn’t what they needed. Alex drags Raven to the auction and chooses Tara for him to bid on. It was obvious by how nervous the woman was she was new to this lifestyle and he felt she would be perfect for Raven. Raven reluctantly does what Alex wants and he easily wins the bid for Tara.
Now Raven and Tara will embark on a year long journey together. He will teach her everything about this lifestyle and she will be his final hope in staying in this lifestyle.
“Mine” is the first book in the dom/sub trilogy
Tara stood there naked and unmoving up on the stone slab. Why the hell was she here? What possessed her to go through with this? Fear and uncertainty mixed with anticipation. She glanced at the other women up on display. They all seemed to be younger than her and certainly skinner. She looked across the room and saw the men who were lined up for display. They seem to range in age and body type. She glanced back at the women. Why couldn’t they have the same variety as the men did? It would make her feel less self-conscious.
“Stop moving around.”
She winced as one of the auctioneers hit her lightly with the whip. He didn’t want to mark her up. She couldn’t complain. She was here on her own free will. From the moment she saw the ad for this place on the submissive website her fate was sealed. At first, she was excited about starting her journey into submission. But now, standing here, displayed like some item, she started to wonder if this was a huge mistake. This was one hell of a leap into the world of submission.
The auctioneers didn’t waste their time training them. It was the job of the submissive’s future Master or Mistress. They only asked Tara basic questions. Her response was clear, she wanted a gentle Master. She doubted she could handle a Master who was totally into S&M as her first Master. She wanted someone to gently lead her down this path. Some of the other submissives told her that a gentle Master was rare, and that she should learn to focus on pleasing her soon to be Master, regardless whether he was gentle or not.
She felt herself beginning to tremble as the first group of men and women entered the hall.
“Remember, all proceeds go to a variety of charities. Have your forms ready when you have made your selection. You will note the submissive’s preferences on the card,” the auctioneer said.
The exchange of money for them was symbolic more than anything else. They were free to leave their new Master or Mistress whenever they choose to, and conversely, the Master or Mistress could dismiss their new submissive at any time as well, though most honored their year contract.
Tara found herself unable to look at the men who stopped to look her over. This should be demeaning somehow, and yet, it was strangely erotic. She felt a man’s hand on her thigh.
“Nice and soft,” he purred.
She could feel him walk on to the next woman in line.
“Take your time, browse, touch and examine. The auction will start in one hour,” the auctioneer said.
Tara knew this was going to be the longest afternoon of her life. There was no turning back now. Soon, she would have a Master.
“Raven, stop fighting me and go look at the females,” Alex said.
“I can’t believe I let you drag me to this auction.”
“It’s time you got back into the game. It’s been two years already. I figured having you train a fresh new submissive would get you back into the spirit.”
“I have been craving a challenge.”
“What better challenge than leading a submissive into this lifestyle.”
“I’m glad to see you have gotten past Romal.”
“Romal, that poor guy, I hope I didn’t put him off this lifestyle.”
“Gabriel gave him to another Master already.”
“Oh, that’s good to hear.”
“Going for another male submissive this time?”
“You know me, I just love men.” Alex smiled. Alex was a very handsome man. He stood six feet tall, was trim, short blond hair, and baby blue eyes. And like Raven was very sophisticated and elegant-looking. Both looked the part of Master. Raven was a bit taller than Alex by a good two inches. He was also much more muscular. His dark hair and eyes, and deep voice, added to his commanding presence. Raven was a sought after Master. Many men and women wanted to be his submissive. Raven however, only liked to train one submissive at a time.
“Cheer up, Raven. After this afternoon you will have a shiny new plaything.”
Raven smiled at him. He loved Alex’s zest for life and his enthusiasm for being a Master.
They entered the viewing hall.
“A good turn out this time. Come with me and help me choose my next plaything,” Alex said.
“I don’t see how my opinion will help.”
“It will help tremendously. If you find one of these males attractive then I shall acquire him.”
Raven walked with Alex over to the row of men. All of them perked up and stood at attention upon seeing the two handsome men.
“Mmmm, an eager bunch,” Alex said.
Raven watched his friend examine the men. A delicate looking blond-haired man caught Raven’s eye.
“That one,” Raven said as he gestured to the young man.
“Oh, excellent taste.” Alex grabbed the young man’s shoulder-length blond hair. “It looks like you take care of yourself.”
“Yes Sir,” the young man quietly said.
“What’s your name?”
Alex stepped up onto the stone slab and grabbed a hold of Lucian’s cock. He smiled when it grew hard immediately in his hand.
“I believe I will bid on you, Lucian, though it looks like Mitchell has his eye on you too.” Alex stepped down. “Tell me honestly boy, whom would you like to be your Master?”
“You Sir,” Lucian said immediately.
“Oh, an eager little puppy. Be warned boy, do not judge a Master simply by the way he looks.”
Alex turned to Raven. “Let’s go. It’s time to pick out your plaything,” Alex said.
“I take it you do plan on bidding on Lucian.”
“Of course, he caught your eye. That makes him even yummier to me.” Alex smiled at him.
Raven walked over to the women. He looked at each one of them carefully as he walked down the line.
“That one,” Alex said as he pointed to Tara. “She looks so frightened, it’s making my cock hard and you know that’s saying something.”
Raven walked over to Tara. He waited for the portly older man to finish examining her.
“This one is too plump,” the older man grunted to one of the auctioneers.
“We have many other females for you to look at.”
Raven watched Tara for a moment. She had her eyes transfixed onto the floor. He let his gaze wander down her soft curves. He smiled. He liked his women with a little meat on their bones. Those other ones were way to skinny for his taste. This woman was rather petite. She had to be a good foot shorter than him. Her brown hair was cut short, but not too short. She wasn’t as beautiful as the other women, but even so, she was still rather pretty.
“She will be a challenge for you. Look at the other ones. They are all so eager to please, so eager to start their service to their new Master. But this one, she is frightened, unsure, and I am betting never been a submissive before. She is so delicious. I’m half-thinking about bidding on her myself.”
“And the way you like to abuse your submissive, you will probably scare her off this lifestyle. She is too novice for the likes of you.”
“I’m not sure whether to take that as a complement or an insult.”
“It’s a complement I can assure you.”
Raven climbed up onto the platform. He could see her body tense up.
“Look at me.”
Tara slowly looked up to see the owner of such a deep voice. She expected to see a leather clad monster of a man. Her breath caught when she saw Raven. He was so elegant and handsome. His dark eyes held such warmth. There was no way a man this exquisite was seriously thinking about making her his submissive.
“What is your name?”
“Tara, you have forgotten to say Sir.”
“I’m sorry…Sir, “she quickly said.
“Oh yes, she is perfect,” Alex said.
Tara looked over to him. Alex was just as handsome as Raven, but he looked gentler. She gasped feeling Raven’s hands on her breasts.
“Umm, their real. Points in your favor, Tara. How old are you?”
“I’m thirty, Sir.”
“Good, then you are not too young.”
Raven climbed down and marked something on his card. She couldn’t take her eyes off him and Alex as they made their way down the line.
“You better pray that Alex doesn’t bid on you,” the young woman next to her said.
“Why? He is so beautiful.”
“That may be, but he is a very intense Master.”
“You have never been to something like this before have you?”
“Then you are in for a shock.”
“What’s your name?” Tara asked.
“Well Tara, I have been at this very auction five times now. I was unlucky two years ago and caught Alex’s eye. He had bid on a young male at the same time. To make a long story short, Alex spent most of his time with the young male. And what little time he spent with me…let’s say I don’t ever want to go through that again. I was hoping Raven would bid on me this year, but it seems you have caught his eye. I hope it is him and not Alex that wins you.”
“The dark-haired one who was with Alex is Raven. Master Raven is well known for being a patient Master. He hasn’t been to one of these auctions in a couple years. Seeing him here has excited the seasoned submissives.”
“So this is a yearly thing.”
“Yes. Once a Master or Mistress wins a submissive they agree to be together until the next auction. If your Master likes you he will keep you beyond the auction. He doesn’t, you are free to be put up for auction again. If you don’t like your Master, then you can free yourself of him and put yourself back into the auction. Your old Master is not allowed to bid on you, since it has been established that you weren’t compatible with each other.”
“Silence,” the auctioneer bellowed. “The auction will start soon. You submissives head back to the waiting chamber. New clothes have been provided for you. If a Master or Mistress wins you then they will take you with them. If no one has bid on you then you can register for next year’s auction. Now move your asses and prepare yourself for your future Master or Mistress.”
Tara followed the women to the waiting room. The faint sound of the auction could be heard in the room. She saw the white ancient Grecian-looking dress hanging on the wall with her name on it. All the women and men wore the same Grecian outfit. The fabric was so soft against her skin.
“How many submissives don’t get bid on?” she asked Julie.
“Some years everyone will get bid on, then there are some years where only a few get bid on. It’s hard to say.”
Tara looked over at Lucian. The young man seemed just as nervous as she was.
“He is a newbie just like you,” Julie said when she noticed Tara looking at him. “He is very pretty and delicate, some Master or Mistress will snap him up.”
“What about me?” Tara asked.
“What about you?”
“Do you think a Master will bid on me?”
“I think so, you have a vulnerability to you. It is easy to tell this is your first time. They love first time submissives. It’s like getting a brand new toy.”
“Get into your greeting stance,” the auctioneer said.
Tara looked lost for a moment.
“Get on your knees. This is how you greet your Master,” Julie said.
Tara went to her knees beside Julie. She wished she had more time to talk with Julie and learn from her. When she arrived here this morning she found out the auction was this afternoon. She honestly didn’t expect it to be that fast. Thankfully, she had already gotten all her personal affairs in order like Master Gabriel told them to do when they signed up for the auction.
The room became very quiet. The auction was over. Everyone here nervously awaited their fate.
“Please come in and get your prize. Make sure you have your papers of ownership before you leave,” the auctioneer said.
Tara didn’t look up when she heard them enter.
“Poor Lucian,” Julie said quietly.
Tara looked up and saw Alex attaching a collar and a leash to Lucian. Raven was standing there talking to Alex.
An older gentle-looking man walked over to Julie. He attached a collar to her neck and then hooked a leash onto it.
“Come on dear, let’s go home.”
“Yes Master,” Julie said.
Tara could tell by her tone that she was pleased about having this new Master.
“I don’t know where to start. I always get so giddy when I get a new toy.”
Tara’s whole body tensed upon hearing Alex’s voice.
“Don’t break your new toy.” Raven squatted down and looked at Tara. He placed his fingers on her chin and lifted her gaze up to meet his.
Tara couldn’t breathe she was so nervous.
“I’m your new Master. Rise and follow me.”
“No…” He grabbed her face firmly. “I’m your Master. You will address me as such.”
Raven stood. She quickly followed. She was surprised that he hadn’t hooked a collar onto her yet.
“When you have earned the right to wear my collar then you shall.”
She gasped and looked up at him.
“Your face gives away your thoughts, my submissive.”
“Ah, is she disappointed that she doesn’t get a collar.” Alex grabbed her hair and pulled her head back so that she was looking at him. “Raven makes you earn everything, darling.” Alex smiled at her.
“Let her go, Alex.”
“Come on, let me have just a taste.”
“Come boy,” Alex yanked Lucian’s collar hard, almost making the young man fall over.
Raven didn’t look back to see if Tara was following him or not. He and Alex talked as they walked out of the room.
Lucian looked back and motioned for Tara to follow them.
She quickly hurried up and got behind Raven.
“Don’t forget the Valentine’s Day party in a month. I can’t wait to see what you have done with her by then.” Alex tugged Lucian’s leash. “Come on, boy. You have a lot of work to do.”
Raven didn’t say anything as they made their way to the parking lot. His legs were much longer than hers so she had to practically run to keep up with him. He headed toward a black Mercedes. He opened the passenger-side door.
She quickly did as he asked.
He walked around and got into the driver’s side. “Put your seat belt on.”
She tried to put it on, but she had never been in a Mercedes before. Raven reached over and with one hand hooked her seat belt.
“I expect you to be able to do that by yourself next time.”
“I will show you things once, after that you are on your own. I expect you to work hard at being a good submissive, as I will work hard to being a good Master. The most important thing you can do is learn to trust me. I will not hurt, nor will I push you beyond what you can handle. I’m sure those other submissives have filled your head full of horror stories about some of the other Masters and Mistresses.”
“They said you were a gentle and patient Master.”
“I am to a point. You disobey me and I will punish you. However, I will not punish you if you are trying your best to learn something. First rule, you will not speak unless I give you permission to, or if you have a question about one of your tasks. Second, you will always address me as Master. Forgetting to do so will earn you a punishment. Third, you will not question me, you will simply do as I say. However, if you are truly frightened by something I do to you I expect you to tell me. Our safe words are red light. If you say those words I will stop. Do you understand?”
“Every morning you will fix me breakfast. You will make sure to do all the chores I have assigned you, and you will do them well. You are not to answer my phone, open my mail or touch my computer. When I’m working you are not to disturb me. Nor, are you to touch me without my permission. Do you understand?”
“Yes Master.” Tara was becoming more frightened by the moment. How was she going to remember all of this?
“We will have a grace period of one week for you to learn the rules of my home. I will not punish you for mistakes during this time. However, once the week is over then I shall punish you for mistakes. Do you understand?”
“If at anytime you don’t understand, simply tell me.” He pulled out onto the freeway. “I assume you have all your personal stuff in order.”
“I don’t know what you mean, Master.”
“Taking care of family, friends, your job if you had one, and make arrangements to suspend your lease on your apartment or house. If you haven’t then you have this grace period to finish that. You are mine for the next year. This is the contract you signed at the auction house when you put yourself up for sell. The only time a submissive can get out of the contract is if the Master has hurt them beyond what is acceptable. You needn’t worry about that I have no plans on hurting you that badly.”
“I have taken care of my personal stuff, Master.” The reality of what she has done was sinking in. She has given herself over to a complete stranger for a year. Whether she was going to be happy or miserable was solely up to this man sitting next to her.
