La Rose Sauvage

A huge hearth of black marble, with gargoyles of stone adorning the mantlepiece, governs the foyer of the Salon de la Rose Sauvage, which emanates a certain dark air, the interior design of the more heavy sort, that could easily be encountered in a gentleman's club, especially with the dark cherry wood wainscoting used on the walls. Dark leather upholstery is predominant in the furniture of chaise longues, couches and long-backed chairs that are arranged in a half-circle, leaving space in the center for courtesans (or patrons) to kneel for an inspection. Three tall windows with circular stained-glass insets are framed by dark red curtains of heavy brocade, a few golden threads worked into the fabric catching occasionally the light of flickering oil lamps at the walls. The lamps light a pair of portrait paintings, of the two founders of the salon, Edouard Shahrizai and his cousin Annabelle no Mandrake, resplendent in their dark Kusheline appeal; and a cabinet in a corner, holding a number of quality wines and a flagon of uisghe.%r%rThe foyer has a high ceiling, and a gallery beyond a balustrade of dark teak wood, carved in the shapes of gargoyles. Sometimes a few veiled creatures can be spotted up there, stealing glances at what is going on below; from the gallery, which can be reached by ascending some winding stairs at the back of the foyer. Beside the stairs leading up is a hallway on ground level, leading further into the building to where the offices of the leader of the salon and his two Seconds can be found, along with the two wings of private quarters for roses of Mandrake and Valerian canon.


It was a cool and overcast fall morning outside of the Rose Sauvage and Belladonna was wearing a loose fitting dress that covered her from the top of her neck all the way to her wrists and ankles. And she has a serving tray with her and is in the process of making sure that all the current patrons, courtesans, and adepts within as provided with refilling refreshments or exchange empty glasses for ones that have been freshly poured.

A young woman comes in, short but with a determinedgait, her red, lacey dress maybe not suitable for more formal environments, since it is rather revealing, but this is the night court. Her eyes are inquisitive and she nods to an adept, accepting a glass of wine and smiling, as she sips at the red liquid which stains her full lips. She walks through the salon, admiring the art..and then her blue eyes fall on Belladonna, giving the girl a playful smile.

Belladonna offers a soft smile to Theodosia, but it doesn't seem to reach her eyes. After a few moments, her steps draw her towards Theodosia as she inquires, "Good morning and welcome to the Rose Sauvage, I am Novice Belladonna Charlot nĂ³ Rose Sauvage. Is there someone specific you are seeking to speak with? I could go and gather them if you wished."

Theo watches the girl approach, admiring that smooth, darker skin, and the lovely curves, though she also notices the way Belladona's eyes watch her. "A pleasure to meet you, Belladonna.." She looks around and sips again at her wine. "I..no, i did not have an appointment, nor an assignation." She says thoughtfully. "I cam here mostly on a whim, though now, I wonder..are there any Thorns available?"

There is a flicker of interest that echoes in Belladonna's eyes briefly as she soon responds, "I could see if any Adepts or Courtesans may be available, I however am still awaiting my debut. It will be November 8th. I could at least offer you conversation and company out here if you instead of grabbing one of the others if you prefer it."

The young woman raises an eyebrow. "Oh, you are a Mandrake then?" her smile becomes a bit ider and her cheeks flush a bit, shining like polished apples. "isn't that interesting? I should definitely like to spend some time with you, after all, I am in..no hurry." She says and offers her lon fingered hand. "Lead us somewhere where we can sit?"

Belladonna gingerly takes Theodosia's hand and leads her over to an empty grouping of seating that can see be seen easily by the guardians of the novices. And once Theodosia takes her seat, Bella herself sits down in the nearby chair as she sets the serving tray upon the table while commenting, "I am yes and only recently arrived to the city as well. I take it you are most fond of the thorns given your inquiry. Tell me what it is you seem drawn to most about them." Her soft smile beginning to softly echo in her eyes, quite fond of talking about her training when she is able.

Theo sits and actually turns herself a bit so that Belladonna can see her lush young body, then she ponders a bit. "Well, I think La Rose is gaining through the aquisition of such a beautiful young woman." She brightens a bit more as her long eyelashes flutter a bit shyly. "I..I must confess..I love being helpless, taken.. submitting." She looks more daringly into Bella's eyes. "And..the burn of rope against my wrists..the bite of the whip.."

Belladonna's smile begins to grow into a bit of a cocky smirk as she says, "I see, very entertaining. I imagine if you were to bid and win my debut I would have quite the amount of fun with you. I favor rope play and whips happen to be one of my preferred impliments. At least from practicing upon the dummies I enjoy it muchly. I am study anatomy as well." That cocky pride echoing in her eyes as she speaks, studying over what is making the young noble lady squirm and committing it to her eidetic memory.

Theo nods and smiles. "I shall definitely come to your Debut then..and hope to win it…" She lifts her glass of wine and watches you over the rim of the glass. "Do you have a strong hand then..to wield a whip?" she whispers more huskily. "And…are there any things that…you dream of? I know a novice is not supposed to do anything, but I assume one dreams and thinks of what they will do?"

Belladonna offers a nod with her head and says, "I have a very strong hand indeed yes. As for dreams. Mostly of binding and having someone at my complete and utter whim. A blindfol upon their eyes so they have no idea what will strike them next, or where for that matter. Receiving pleas for various things." Her eyes briefly flitting to the wine within Theo's hand to ensure she not need a refill as she inquires, "And what of your dreams my lady?" Those dark eyes intently studying over Theo once more.

She shudders a little as she nods and she has to empty her glass in a deep gulp, as if to soothe her quickening pulse. She smiles shyly though. "Yes, my skin warmed up…stinging from blows as I beg for things that o well bred lady should wish for.." She licks her lips with the tip of her pink tongue. "Then…my body, aching and sore, taken..entwined with another in lust.."

Belladonna signals for a fellow novice to come over and refill Theo's glass. As those words escape Theo's mouth, Bella continues to look intrigued as she says, "You make me wonder what limits you might have, though I suspect suspense can be good for both parties. Also I not think you told me of your name."

Theo smiles and raises her delicate hand, offering it to be kissed by the young novice. "I am Theodosia de Fhirze.." A Namarrese, ah that explains the passion with which she speaks. "Oh, for limits, I do not know…I…think that would be fun to discover, do you not think so?" She says warmly.

Belladonna doesn't take the offered hand, not wishing to break the rules as a novice, she does offer an air kiss to it but nothing more as she says, "Pleasure to make your acquaintance Theodosia. And that can be fun to discover indeed just what those limits are and how far one can press them before broken. And in truth, I feel that my debut can not come soon enough."

Theo smiles and nods. "Ah, I have heard that sentiment expressed by other novices. It will be fun to watch you as your debut approaches, I believe the tension will only increase.." She smiles and flushes a bit deeper. "And then, the lucky one who has your debut…having all that pressure spilled onto them.."

Belladonna offers a single nod as she agrees, "Indeed they will. But I have my training in taking care of any marks that may get left behind. Even after breaking all need mending." She briefly pauses before she inquires, "What sort of hobbies do you enjoy?"

Theodosia holds her glass of wine to be refilled, then nods. "I suppose you do..though still, I think that passion needs to be well stoked." She leans back in her chair and crosses her legs, showing off her well toned thighs. "Oh, I like riding…hunting.." She adds. "Though sometimes I just take a book with me on my rides and end up curled in the grass in a meadow."

Belladonna's eyes flit to the movement of her legs before focusing back upon the blues of Theo's. "And what is it you read upon these grassy meadows? What genres do you tend to favor reading most? Which are more for education?"

Theodosia keeps her legs on display, her toes curling in her strappy sandals, then she shrugs her shoulders which are almost bared by the thin straps of her dress. "I..well, not anything too educational, I am afraid. Mostly poetry and romance, silly things to make me lose myself in the pages, close my eyes and imagine myself in there."

Belladonna brushes her fingertips along her own jawline as she muses, "We all have our passions. So then let me ask you, what do you dream of? What desires do you have in need of sating that lurk between those pages you loose yourself in?"

The young woman looks into the novice's eyes and smiles. "Well, you know..having my bodice ripped, my backside spanked…and…being taken again and again..till I am sated and sore..but also…looking into a lover's eyes, kissing them.."

Belladonna offers a single nod as she responds, "I wonder just how red you like your bottom spanked. Though that answer must wait until you either win my debut or ask of an assignment of me. Sadly I must be going off to tend to my classes. It was speaking with you Theodosia and I do look forward to seeing you at my debut. Have any questions of me before I take my leave?"

She blushes a bit and nods. "I..I look forward to..showing you!" She says then stands and inclines her head "Thank you for keeping me company this evening."

Belladonna offers a smile that hints in her eyes as she says, "Thank you for being my company, and be well until then," before she makes her way towards the hallway leading further into the Rose Sauvage.
