Life in the Seraglio…Featuring The Quan Am Suite by Chop Zuey
Time has flown very fast, for her, in a world that time seemed to have forgotten. A world where women competed for the love of one man, for power and dominance, wearing very little other than a sheer determination to be noticed. From my first introduction into the Seraglio, it has been one of instruction in music, language, religion, dance, poetry, and the fine art and protocol of erotic sensual love. Unbeknownst to her, the Kizlar Agha, had taken a special interest in her studies and her as a person, for reasons only known to him and a few trusted servants. She was a very diligent student, excelling in everything taught to her, displaying a voracious appetite for knowledge and learning. Among slaves and others, she was very well regarded as a kind and generous lady. As a reward, she was told, she was invited to have Baklava and Pomegranate Sherbet with the Keeper of the Jewels. To her utter surprise and amazement, she was presented with the dazzling Quan Am Headband to adorn her hair. The headband was fashioned with Rubellite Tourmaline, Pink Morganite, Ametrine, Pearl and Diamond in Gold with White Flowers and Dangle Briolettes in Rubellite Tourmaline and Pearl Flowers.
The Keeper of Jewels was instructed to give, this particular girl, something from the treasury of jewels. Always alert to curry favor, she did as instructed and picked out a magnificent piece! Jewels, furs, clothing, and such articles dear to the palace women, came in from all over the empire and beyond and this exceptionally, exquisite hairpiece bore the hallmarks from the legendary house of Chop Zuey, a name well known and sought after amongst the Kadins of the harem!
The beauty of the Quan Am headband she wore, was a visible signal to others that she is a lady to be watched with interest, as someone of importance is backing her. As rumors and gossip started to fly throughout the harem about her, she continued in her studies, growing in beauty, both in the physical and her demeanor. As she was preparing for her day, still sitting upon her sleeping mat, a messenger approached with a small box. She opened the box, with her heart skipping a beat, as there sat the suite of the Quan Am Jewelry Set, nestled upon a beautifully embroidered piece of silk. Her eyes took in the beauty of the spectacularly striking and intricately entwined necklace designed of Rubellite Tourmaline, Pink Morganite, Ametrine, Pearl and Diamond set in the finest Gold, with matching earrings, bracelet and ring. The womanly part of her, compelled her to put each piece on and admired herself in them. When she lifted the last piece, it was then she noticed the enclosed note.
She went to the baths, which at this time of day, were empty, in her Quan Am Jewelry, and she sat in the soothing water to ponder over the compelling contents of the note.
