Last Saturday I had the pleasure and honor of being in SLB12 FEROSH Fashion Show in celebration of Second Life’s 12th birthday! It had the fabulous and creatively fun theme of Marie Antoinette “Let Them Eat Cake” 1780 Couture. It was the stuff of fantasy and dreams as we got to express our individual visions of that using the gorgeous designs from Azul and Solidea. I picked and wore Solidea Folies MVW 2013 Italy Gown and accessorized with Chop Zuey Jewelry.

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.
Thank you for taking the time to read the 2nd installment of my story. It will continue.

Your Litter awaits you…
Before her ship was boarded, by the infamous Corsairs Pirates, she had changed to the clothing of a lowly servant girl and quickly hid her family’s precious jewels, The Indah Merpati, worth a king’s ransom, in Pearls and Kalahari Diamonds, upon her person. Being of mixed ancestry, of Asian and English, her exotic beauty could not be hid. As she watched her aged, beloved Father mercilessly being dragged off the ship to be sold in the slave markets of god knows where….she did not cry, but held her head up high, so that her father would remember a woman and not the indulged child that he had cosseted and would never be again.
When she was searched, she could not understand the language being spoken, but was quickly stripped, and the suite of Indah Merpati’s Choker Necklace, 2 Earring Styles and 2 Bracelet Styles, Ring, Hair Barrette and stunning Tikka all in Pearl and Kalahari Diamonds were discovered. The captain who could speak her native English, looked her up and down, and saw the beauty of her person, said this one is destined to be sold to the Kizlar Agha, let her keep her jewels, as we will get their worth and much more for the beautiful slave she will become in the harem of imperial ottoman!
The greedy slave woman who was assigned to keep her clean, fed, and occupied during the rest of passage, recognized the worth of the Indah Merpati’s pieces by the hallmark of the legendary jeweler to Sultans and Kings, Belle Roussel of the House of Chop Zuey, tried to steal the barrette and quickly found that the woman who would not speak, a hellcat and would defend to the death, her only link left to her family.
Having reached the Ottoman’s Empire famous slave markets, she was not taken to the open markets of Constantinople, but was lead to a private, airy, luxurious room. There she awaited until this huge man, regally dressed and jeweled, the Kizlar Agha, himself, came, who was the master of the girls, and the Chief Black Eunuch to the Sultan, who had her unrobed and examined every inch of her.
He had her attired, in a simple dress and placed in the Suite of the Indah Merpati. As the Pirate Captain predicted, he was given their worth and much more in sale of the girl to the Agha.
She was carried to the pavilion of the women, and was given a choice, to either be drowned in the Bosphorus or because of her extraordinary beauty, aspire to a life of luxury and comfort being trained to dance, recite poetry, play a musical instrument, and master the erotic arts as a potential concubine in hopes of catching the eye of the Sultan. She is given the rare privilege to decide, by the Kizlar Agha, as he sees greatness in her. She thinks about what may come and decides to enter the oda, turning her back, for the last time to the freedom of the outside world.
The Indah Merpati, is a exquisitely lovely Mega-Pack Texture Change Set by Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry, made in honor of Mio Linette, Miss SL Indonesia. The Texture Change Hud has 2 Pearl, 16 Gemstones, and 2 Metal Options to mix and match to your heart’s content for endless possibilities, made by the famous and extremely talented, Mistress of Bling, Belle Roussel.
