"Do you see now, sister?" The Empress mused, looking out over the arena with cruel delight. "Amazons do make the best toys."
"Please, sister!" The animal, who could no longer be called a woman by decree, begged from her place at her Empress' side. "My friends have done nothing, but comply to your rule! Please do not torture them to torture me!"
"How else do you propose I torture you then?" Blackfire chuckled, turning her mocking gaze on her red haired sibling. Oh, how she enjoyed seeing her sister as she was now. Naked except for the bindings that made her what she was, Blackfire's pet bitch.
Starfire feet were bound to her thighs by straps around her ankles, and her arms were tied similarly with her wrists bound to her upper arms. This meant she could only kneel with her arms stuck in a chicken wing stance or crawl on the points of her elbows
and knees. Needless to say, the Empress had forbade Stafire from the ability to fly, the life of one of her precious former friends was the cost of any disobedience. The cold metal collar closed tightly around the orange tinted skin of the former princess'
neck and the connected leash in Blackfire's hand was the delectable cherry on the cake, as her new Earthling subjects say.
"Anything, please..." Starfire's eyes teared up once more as she watched two of her most beloved friends in their battle to the death.
Donna Troy and Cassie Sandsmark, had been ordered by their divine Empress to fight for their disputed title of Wonder Girl. The winner would lead Blackfire's Themyschiran armies against the resistance still remaining in Man's World. Those forces led by
their former mentor and princess, Diana, but Empress had shown the Amazon's that it was Man's corruption of Diana that blinded her to the truth of Empress Blackfire's greatness. So now both women were not only fighting for their lives, and their Empress' favour,
but for the chance to stand by their mentor under Empress' divine rule.
"Please, sister!" Starfire cried, hoping to end the battle before either combatant could truly harm the other. Blackfire merely ignored her, inwardly relishing the desperation in her sister's eyes as she turned her gaze back to the fight. In panic, Starfire
turned her pleas to the only other woman on the balcony. "Please, Queen Hippolyta, you must stop this! Are they not your sisters? If not your daughters?"
"I know my place, pig!" A very different Hippolyta to the one Starfire had known from previous encounters answered coldly. The warrior Queen stood guard over her Empress, naked as was Blackfire's desire, only her shield and sword held by straps on her
body touching her skin. "They are fighting for the right to fight for the Empress, there is more honour in dying for that one cause than dying a hundreds over in the name of the fools who call themselves Gods on Olympus!" Blackfire grinned as loyal subject
rambled on. "The victor will lead the charge to save my daughter from Man's corruption, you think I would risk Diana for your heart's sake!?"
"You tell her Queenie!" Blackfire laughed loudly, truly enjoying the show of loyalty from the once proud queen. Looking once more to her now completely dejected sister, Blackfire did decide to show her sibling a glimmer of hope. "Tell you what, sister,
I'll change things up a bit..."
