“Thanks for coming with us,” I said as we went into the library, Angela and Gerri following us in as we looked at the Perspex boxes.
“No problem – and I think I can guess why you asked us up as well,” Angela said with a smile.
“Yeah – Gerri, will you watch what I do with Debbie, and then you and Angela can take care of me and Rachel as well.”
“Oh? What’s new?”
“You’ll see,” I said with a grin as Rachel handed Debbie two sponges, and we started to cover her hands. As the two older girls watched, I crossed Debbie’s sock covered wrists behind her back and lashed them together with the square lash, and then the usual rope vertically and horizontally.
“Well, no way she is moving her wrists now,” Gerri said as I passed the rope round her waist, and tied her wrists to her back, then the rope in a figure of eight round her arms and stomach. As I secured that, I glanced at Angela, but she shook her head slightly from side to side.
“Have a seat Debbie,” I said as she walked over to a chair, sitting down with my help and watching as I tied her ankles together, side by side.
“Can you tie my legs together over the skirt,” she said as she looked at me, so I nodded and tied them above her knees, gathering the skirt round them as I did so. She swung her legs to and fro as Gerri whispered to Angela “She seems to be enjoying it.”
“And now – the gag. Same as last night Debbie?”
She nodded and smiled as I prepared the two handkerchiefs, rolling one up in the other and then pushing the wad into her mouth. The knotted towelling strip was next, tied round her head before I took the handkerchief round and secured the ends as well.
“Duct tape first,” Gerri said with a raised eyebrow.
“Only over the mouth and chin,” I said as I tore off several strips and pressed them into place, covering her lips and chin, before winding the white tape tightly round her head as well, then the duct tape on top of that. Finally, I took a peach scarf, folded it and tied it tightly round her head.
Debbie slowly swung her legs to and fro as I said “so – time for me and Rachel to join her.” She watched as Gerri took care of me, and Angela of Rachel, until I had a green scarf tied round my head and Rachel a red one.
“So, all three tightly bound and gagged,” Gerri said with a smile, “what on earth are they going to do?”
“Probably jump around,” Angela said with a smile. “Want to do that Debbie?”
What on earth did she think I was going to say? I couldn’t speak after all, let alone move without hopping, but I nodded, eager to see what it was really like.
I watched as Patty and Rachel looked at each other, and then stood up, jumping with ease towards the door and around the room. I stood up, took a moment to catch my breath, took a large jump – and nearly fell onto my face as I landed.
“Easy,” Angela said as she caught me. “When you’re tied like this, remember you’re breathing using your nose, and any exertion takes more out of you. So, baby hops, little jumps, all right?”
“Fnnnuu,” I mumbled – well, two large cloths and the rest of the gag meant not a lot else was heard. SO I nodded, and took little inch jumps. And I mean inch jumps – tiny hops forward, getting used to how it feels to jump around when I am like this. IT took a while, but eventually I got my confidence, and nodded to both Patty and Rachel.
Patty then jumped to the door, Rachel following, and then me as we left the library, Angela and Gerri talking to each other as we jumped up and down the corridor, our skirts rising and falling as we did so. Mine was more fixed, but it was still an amazing feeling to do this, as I saw Patty and Rachel’s skirts rise and fall.
We then came to the bottom of the staircase, and I wondered where we were going to go next. I thought we might go outside – so when Patty hopped to the stairs, I wondered what she was going to do.
I was not expecting what she did – sit down and start to push herself up the stairs! I was scared she might try and jump up, and hurt herself, but Angela said “watch what they do.”
I watched as Patty sat down on the first step, then pushed herself onto the second step and put her feet on the first. Slowly, she made her way up, Rachel doing the same once she was half way up.
“Go on,” Angela said as she reached the sixth step, “your turn.” I was afraid, but I didn’t want to show it, so I sat on the second step, and put my feet on the first one.
“Now, push yourself up to the next step,” Gerri said, as I slowly – and rather ungracefully – used my feet to push up and I slid onto the next step. “Good – do it again,” she said, and slowly, with a little more grace as I moved on, I managed to push myself up the stairs. At the top, I saw Patty and Rachel still sitting, but they had moved from the top of the stairs to the wall, and had started to push themselves up.
“Just slide along on your bottom,” Angela said, so I used my feet to push myself along, and rested with my back against the wall. Given my skirt was tied round my legs, I had discovered I had a little less freedom than the other girls, but I still managed to half push, half slide myself into a standing position.
“If you are ready,” Angela said as I caught my breath, and then we started to hop along the upper corridor, passing our bedrooms as we did so, before Patty stopped by an open door and hopped through. Rachel went next, then me – and we found ourselves on the balcony, looking out onto the lawn below.
It was surreal, standing in the cold air, looking out onto the lawn and the trees. The leaves were virtually all brown and gold, with only one or two green ones left, and on the far side I could see the lake and the island, the white marble gleaming in the sunlight.
We were on one side, near the wall, with the chest high railing on the other side, but I was glad we kept to the wall side as Patty led the way along. It was cold, I could feel the cool air on my face, but being gagged so effectively meant it was like having a warm woollen scarf tied tightly round my face, keeping the chill out. Also, my hands were covered, and I was wearing sheer tights, so really the only bare skin exposed to the air was around my upper face – and that was warm from the hopping. In fact, the cool breeze was very nice – this jumping around was good exercise, but it was making me warm, especially as with my skirt tied round my legs the air was not getting up there.
Eventually, however, we went back inside and made our way back to the top of the stairs – which is when I thought Patty was going to try and jump down again!
I was relieved she didn’t do that, but instead sat down, putting her feet on the second step down and then gracefully sliding down. She repeated that process as she made her way down the stairs, Rachel sitting and following her.
“Don’t worry,” Gerri said as she stood with me – Angela had gone down already – “I’ll make sure you get down safely. Remember what the other two did first?”
Nodding I let myself sit at the top of the stairs, and put my feet down on the second step. Taking as deep a breath as I could, I stood up, and lowered myself onto the first step, before moving my feet down one more step.
Well, this wasn’t too bad – I pushed myself onto my feet again, and sat on the second step, then put my feet down again. Looking at Gerri, she smiled and said “not bad – but can I make one tiny suggestion?”
Nodding, I listened as she said “if you go down that way, you might make it in time for lunch. Honestly, Debbie, sliding down on your bottom is quicker and just as safe – if not safer.”
Well, she knew what she was talking about, so I slid down one step, then moved my feet. Down one step, then moved my feet. Down one step…
It still took me longer than the other two, but eventually I made it to the bottom of the stairs, pushing myself to my feet as I looked at the other two. Gerri smiled as she said “Well done – but where did Angela go?”
Debbie’s question was actually a very good one, as Rachel and I looked round – where had Angela gone?
“Ah good – all three of you are down,” she said as she came out of what I knew was the television room, “in here please, I have a little treat for you.”
So I led the way into the room, smiling as I saw three large cushions had been set up in front of the television screen. “Why don’t you three have a seat on one of the cushions,” Angela said with a smile, “legs to the side and we’ll show you how to sit without getting uncomfortable.”
“Wsshsss,” I said to Debbie as I hopped over to one of the cushions and sat myself down, Rachel and Debbie doing the same.
“We’re going to ask you to sit with your knees bent,” Angela said, “so that you don’t fall backwards.” I watched as they helped us to bend our legs back so that the heels of our shoes almost touched our bottoms.
Angela then went and put a disc into the player, and smiled as she turned the television on. As she did this, Gerri knelt behind me, and as I glanced round I saw she was tying my ankles to my wrists with a length of rope.
She winked at me as she did the same to Rachel, but they were watching the big screen as the film started – and it was The Awakening! Debbie didn’t even notice as she was placed in a sitting hogtie, but Angela was right – this was comfortable, so I settled down to watch the film with my friends.
