Seeing something new
An Old Guard Leather Master heard about a different style of domination practiced by a young man who did not come to the usual community scenes. He decided to travel there to see for himself.
The younger man welcomed him, and listened to the Old Guard Master talk about his years training in old European houses, his work in the dungeons in San Francisco, and all of the bois that he had claimed. The younger man excused himself for a moment, and came back with a large mirror. He placed the mirror on the table, facing the Old Guard Master.
“What the fuck are you doing?” asked the Master, annoyed.
“You came here claiming that you wanted to learn about a new style,” said the younger man, “but I think that what you really want to do is to see how much it agrees with what you already know.”
The Old Guard Leather Master walked away, muttering “Insolent bastard,” and remained unenlightened.
