Honestly I usually hate these kind of stories. But not this one. As a writer, I can see how much thought you have put into these, like you said. There is more to them than the s*x. Yeah it's not my kind of story, but your plot has me interested. So kudos to you!

To Mot<_>herfu<_>c<_>ker: I can assure you that this was all my idea. Tell me what I may have gotten the idea from. If you can't, you're just a helpless hater. <p> To all the suggestions: I will do my best to work those in. Thank you for being fans! <p> It was a quiet night tonight. Well, it was for the four woman huddled inside a hut. Three of the woman belonged to a master. The other woman was the disguised soldier. They were all quietly discussing how life changed so quickly, memories of their children before they got shot down, or poisoned, or starved to death. They were partially thankful for the fact that everyone settled down enough to harvest and grow crops, to raise cows and pigs for meat. <p> "Is it just me, or should I be scared of the lady next to me for hitting me twice with a frying pan?" the disguised soldier laughed. She had kept her gear on, just in case another soldier happened to come by. It would be very suspicious for four woman, instead of three, sitting around a lighted candle, talking. Indeed, they would have a rite to be suspicious, because this was a suspicious meeting. <br> "I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name," one of the woman asked the disguised soldier. This was the one that had the frying pan. <br> "Lela," the 'soldier' replied. <br> The same asker replied, "I am Shyla." <br> They both turned to the other two woman, property of the master from last night. "Yours?" <p> "Nehat. I was an Indian." <p> "Shelby," the other one shugged. "I'm a... citian. Or was." <p> Lela smiled. "Good. Now we know names." <br> "So...Lela, what was this you were talking about, about bringing down the soldiers?" Shyla asked. <p> Lela shook her head, feeling everyone's eyes on her. "It was fool's talk. We do need to repopulate. It's just... in ra<_>pe manner, I don't know... it just seems wrong." <br> Shelby nodded. She had had three healthy babies so far. Each taken away. "It's hard. Having our precious bundles for six months, and not seeing them until they are sixteen. Unless they are lucky enough to be a scribe. They only have boys doing that. Our girls will more likely to cleaning and housekeeping, being servants. It's likely we won't see any children until the seventh or ninth one." Shelby nodded solemnly at her own words, sighing. <br> "Yes," Nehat agreed, "I wish every day I could hold one of my babies just one last time... to give them up with them knowing I loved them, rather than have screamed like a banshee." <br> Shyla soothingly gave Nehat a hug. <p> Meanwhile, in the Nursery at the palace... <p> The king swept through the nursery, looking disgusted. "There are too many girls and not enough boys. I need boys, not girls!" <br> "Sir, we can't decide whether thet will be girls or boys. It is nature's choice--" <br> "Maybe their is something wrong with he se<_>men," he muttered before raising his voice. "All the females, when they turn four, will be working labor. Only a few intelligant ones will serve the palace. The laborers will work all day, and when they are twelve, no older, is when they begin their...treatmnt." <br> "Treatment?" one of his soldiers piped up. <br> "Ra<_>pe. Se<_>xual ass<_>ault." <br> Everyone except the king cringed, each muttering they wish they didn't have to do it. <br> "YOU WILL DO WHAT I TELL YOU TO!" the king thundered, stomping out of the nursery. <p> I know there wasn't any epicly se<_>xy scenes in this chapter, but the four woman will be important. Out of space now, --Starry Night
