“Mmm, smells delicious. I’d ask for a taste but I would prefer to keep my mind. How does it feel, slave, knowing that your cookery skills will help enslave your oblivious friends?”

“It feels terrible, Master. I hate that I have to do this.”

“Oh, really? Then why the chipper attitude and that naughty little smile?”

“Because you ordered me to behave this way, Master. You said I needed to practice so I could fool my friends into thinking that I was happy with you long enough to get them to eat.”

“Ah, yes, so I did. But if you dislike my orders so much, why obey them?”

“Because… because I have no choice. You tricked me into tasting your drug and now you keep me brainwashed and docile.”

“And why would I do such a terribly cruel thing like that?”

“I… I tried to stop your research. I tried to take over your company. And you thought that… you thought I deserved it… Master.”

“That’s right. And do you regret what you did?”

“I… I do, Master.”

“Good girl. Then maybe, once you’ve finished slipping subliminal-pumping headphones over the ears of your mindless friends, I’ll let you have a nice big bite and turn you into the completely blank slave you’ve been pretending to be.”

“…thank you, Master.”
