OK, I’m holding this meeting to let y’all know how last year went and how I think we can do better this year. We averaged about 17 slaves a day intake and had about the same out go. We had an average churn time of 5 days. All those are good numbers, given the size of our market area, but I think, with a little work, we can raise the intake to 20 a day or more. These are the ways that I think we can work on to make those numbers happen.
- Start being more aggressive about school buys. I’m talking about all the schools, the Eastlake school weekly sales, the private school fund raisers and paying attention to sorority sales from all 3 universities. Granted I don’t expect much from the religious schools, but it’s not unheard of. John and Josh, I’m assigning you to the school beat, so to speak. I expect one of you to make it to the weekly sales by Eastlake district and try to get as many of the university and private school sales as possible. As fair as quality of the slaves go, I want any body that would be rated as ‘Grade B’ or better or has a real meat grade of ‘A’ or better, and yes, I know those two scales don’t have a lot in common. Don’t get into bidding wars, but you need to be active about getting the buy. If you have time you might check the school website for girls with a 4 demerits and make a preemptive call to their parents.
- I’m going to try to raise our profile in South Side. I know that we get a lot of Southerners coming in for doing one form of family conversion or another, but I want to increase that. I’ve set up a deal to have a kiosk on a couple of the golf courses during week ends, both for sales and buys. Fred and Philip, you get that duty.
- Weddings. I know they haven’t been in our wheelhouse before, but I think we can expand into that market, both by supplying slaves for the happy couple and for making the bride into a slave-wife. I’ve got some feelers out to several of the ‘normal’ wedding planners about sub contracting the slave aspect of a modern day wedding. Linda and Roberta, you get that duty. I’ll give you the contact information after this meeting.
- Contract conversions. I want a full court press on getting every one of those contracts do be handled by us. I’m talking collections, gyms, the whole shebang. I’ll be leading this one, but I expect I’ll be handing out stuff on an ad-hock basis for follow up work.
Staffing. I’m planing on expanding staff. I’m mainly looking at getting more of the Mistresses that graduate each semester on as staff. I’m also going to increase the number of Mistress Trainees interns from the current 4 to maybe 8 or 10, depending on the quality of students. Tesla will provide most of those, but that’s mainly due to the fact that I have day to day contact with the mittens there. I’ll be expanding to the other schools, but I suspect that I might run into some problems with that, well, because the Mistress trainers at the other schools will be doing the same thing.
<Later that day at the Harkinson house. Megan is talking to her sister Joanne. Joanne is getting married to Dillon Staton today. Megan is to be Joanne’s maid of honor. As they are talking Megan pulls out a small 9mm pistol and points it at Joanne>
“Well, Joanne didn’t think I would get to do this as your maid of honor, but then again, well, let’s just say that this is a day I’ve been waiting for most of my life. I’m sorry but I’m have to tell you that there has been a change in plans for your wedding. Rather major changes, to say the least. Listen to what I have to say or I shoot you. OK?”
“What are you doing? What do you mean changes? Where did you get that gun? Tell me what’s going on please, why are you doing this?”
“Why? Because I’ve always been in your shadow. You got the grades in school with out needing to work for them, you got the boys to do things for you, you even got engaged to a man we both had our eyes on. Did you know that Dillon and I were having an affair, even after he proposed to you? That’s where I came up with this plan. I suggested making you a slave to Dillon and he went for it. Here is the thing. I know you two have signed the marriage license, which is all it takes to give Dillon the right to convert you. Right after it was signed, he went to Spellbook Slaves and had you converted. That added $500 to the cost of the wedding, but all in all it will be worth it. Now here is the important thing, either you let me put you in bondage so we can have a nice friendly slave wedding or I put a bullet in your brain. Because you are a slave, I can do that because I have the permission of your owner. So what is it going to be sister mine? Life as a slave or dead on your wedding day? Or should I say our wedding day. After the big public slave wedding you are having, Dillon and I are getting married. Seems that a slave wedding isn’t legally binding.”
“No, don’t shoot me, I’ll be good, just don’t kill me, please…”
< Joanne puts on her wedding dress, then Megan ties up Joanne >
“Now doesn’t that look sweet.? The black ropes really set off your wedding dress. Now let me gag you so you don’t make any more bothersome noises.”
<Megan pulls out her phone>
“Dillon, honey? Yeah I’ve got her all ready to go for you. I’m sorry but I tied her legs together, so you are going to need to come and get her, she can’t walk out the door on her own. … Yes, I used the black rope you gave me. Looks really good over her wedding dress. … Yes of course I gagged her. Didn’t really want to hear her whine about this. … You say that you have hired those slavers to come pick her up and transport her to the wedding site How much did that cost? … Free as long as it less than 2 hours use of the van? Great, I’ll wait here for them. Love you too.” <Megan puts her phone away> “Looks like you are getting the full treatment, being transported to the chapel in a proper slaver’s van. Being manhandled like you were a side of beef. You should thank me, because I didn’t ask Dillon to snuff you after the service, because I bet he would if I had asked. You never did ask me about those night school classes I took. Turns out that I’m a Mistress now. That means I don’t have to worry about being converted if Dillon gets a strange idea about having two sisters as slaves. No, we will just have a quiet small little justice of the peace ceremony and take you with us on our honeymoon. Really, being a Mistress is just like what it must have been like before the White Slave Act was passed. Granted you have to pass the course, and failure to do so will result in your conversion, but all and all it’s totally worth it. I would recommend that you get your certificate, but they don’t take slaves. Sorry about that.”
