The Librarian’s Lair

Snapshot_320
Our Librarian travels the world and her world are books! Her passionate pursuit of the bound leather and gold that are filled with secrets, knowledge, of ages long gone, current events, and things yet to happen, excites her, thrills her, like nothing else can! Imagine, with just a careful turn of a page, her ardor is  awakened, aroused, and is sated. So it is not surprising, that her small personal space is filled with that love…books! Her home is truly one that is stuffed to the rafters with books of every kind and all that inspires her.  Let’s take a peek and open a page into her private world…the world of the Librarian’s Lair!

What May Come…Featuring Indah Merpati Mega-Pack Texture Change Set by Chop Zuey

CHOP ZUEY INDAH SET_013

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.

CHOP ZUEY INDAH SET_017

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.

CHOP ZUEY INDAH SET_009
