Zak had done his morning Muay Thai training and his afternoon guitar lessons, as was the routine. And, ever since he finally learned his place in the not so grand scheme of his life, routine was everything for him. It kept him focused, kept him from dwelling on things. And the less he dwelled on things, the easier life became. The easier it was to endure and move forward.

Did that mean he was happy? Oh fuck no. No, no, no. Still, he went about the routine.

Sitting on the edge of a pool of water, Zak’s legs dangled in the warm bath. He had some ambient new age music playing. It wasn’t his favorite at all, but it was calming, and calm was good. Calm used to be very rare, but now calm was becoming a more frequent visitor. He hummed along with the music, looking down at the little waves in the water his legs made as he slowly kicked them back and forth.

Grayson was called back to Bal's lair. It was nothing unusual to him. He was used to it. But he also took advantage of it. When he was not dealing with Bal, he utilized the lair's services - spas, saunas, and pools. He tried to make a miniature vacation out of it when he could.

A very naked Grayson walked to one of the baths and found, low and behold, Zak - Bal's favorite human fuck toy. Something about Zak was different through, Grayson noticed. He could not quite put his finger on it. He wondered if something had happened.

"Hey man," Grayson said as he sat on the opposite end of the bath and set his legs in it. "How are things?"

Zak looked up with a half-smile when Grayson showed up. “Hey,” he said in a fairly friendly tone. He didn’t see Grayson too often, but their visits were usually pleasant. He considered the escort to be as close to a friend as he had at that point in his life, and he was happy enough to see him.

“Things are alright,” Zak said with a somewhat contemplative nod. “Can’t really complain. How about you?”

"I'm... fine," he said with a bit of apprehension. "Lots of changes over at Gula. Gonna have a new Vice Lord soon, I think... so I have no idea what the future holds," he explained. It did cause him to have a bit of worry and a falter to his confidence. He hoped that the good impression he made on Dallas and the strange Miss Kitty lady would earn him favor by whoever ended up filling the seat. "You look... uh... more content than normal."

“Oh, man…that’s rough,” he said honestly. Zak knew Bal was involved with Kairos, and he had already had one encounter with a Vice Lord. He wished it would stop at that, but he had a feeling he would have more interaction with Kairos than he would like. As for Grayson being stuck working for them and being saddled with uncertainty? That really sucked.

Zak looked at Grayson a little curiously, tilting his head and raising an eyebrow. “Content? I guess…yeah I guess I’m more content than the last time we saw each other. Took me long enough, right?” He laughed a little and felt himself die inside.

"Yeah... but..." Gray said and then sighed. "I'm going to be honest with you. You seem content... but not in a good way... I'm used to seeing that spark in you... that drive to get out of here... for things to get better... what happened?" It was weird to see Zak sort of passively accepting his fate. It made Grayson think that something had happened. He raised a curious eyebrow and silently prayed that Bal did not have him lobotomized or something equally as horrific.

Zak went from content to visibly uncomfortable in the blink of an eye. He tried to shake it off, but only to minimal results. “Nothing really happened,” he lied. It wasn’t the worst lie ever, but had too much effort behind it to be really believable.

“I just sort of…I dunno. I mean it’s really not that bad here, right? I mean fuck, like, I get to take Muay Thai and guitar lessons paid for by Bal. I get to lounge around and get massages all day,” he said, trying to convince himself as much as Grayson that things were fine.

“Some of it sucks yeah. But whatever.” It’s not like there was anything else for him anyway.

"Nothing, huh?" Grayson replied with a healthy dose of skepticism. He shrugged his shoulders. "Yeah, that sounds nice compared to what you endured before... but it's not something you chose. This isn't something I chose. We may find a silver lining, but that doesn't make it alright." Grayson was kind of shocked to see Zak giving in. He thought Zak would be resistant til the end. Part of Grayson wished he had the courage to be a resistant as Zak used to be.

Zak could practically smell the skepticism, and honestly he couldn’t blame Grayson. The slave wasn’t the best at selling lies after all. He shrugged his own shoulders before sighing and looking at Grayson with a little bit of a crack in his contented mask.

“I…yeah I still have to put up with Bal’s um…urges? And I don’t like it. But like…I figure I don’t have anything left but this anymore, so I should just take what I can get, right?” he asked Grayson with a weak, pathetic excuse for a smile.

It was true that Bal's urges were difficult to deal with. Grayson knew that pain firsthand... perhaps not as often as Zak did though. "You don't have anything left? That's not true," Grayson asserted. "You have people on the outside... at least one person you love, right?"

Zak tensed up and looked down at his hands. He took in a deep breath before sighing it out. As much as he wanted to pretend what had happened didn’t happen, as much as he wanted to wash away all the happy memories so it didn’t hurt anymore, he couldn’t. “Not um…not anymore,” he said quietly without looking up at Grayson.

Grayson raised an eyebrow curiously. "What do you mean by not anymore?" he asked, oblivious to what went on between Zak and Bal. "Of course you have people out there who care for you." Grayson sighed and kicked his legs in the water. As much as he liked knowing that Zak was calmer and more relaxed, there was still something unsettling about it. He did not want to believe that Zak had given up.

Zak wasn’t supposed to talk about it. He wasn’t even supposed to think about it. Anything to do with what happened was to be put out of his mind as he moved forward. And then of course Grayson had to keep asking questions, and that just brought everything back to the surface, and Zak wanted to yell and sob and die.

“Um…” Zak bit his lower lip and spoke a little slowly as if each word hurt more than the one that preceded it. “Bal…he killed my girlfriend.”

Finally the slave looked back up at Grayson, his eyes reddening. “She found out where I was…wanted me to run away with her. And…he killed her. Right in front of me.” He couldn’t say her name. It hurt to much to say her name.

Grayson's eyes went wide with shock. He knew Bal had it in him to kill. He knew Bal was a killer. He knew Bal had killed and eaten plenty of people. But to think that he killed Zak's girlfriend... suddenly everything was making sense. Zak's attitude and behavior was making sense. He assumed Zak was probably depressed... terrified... or both... and maybe Zak realized that fully submitting was the easiest way to avoid such a significant tragedy all over again. Grayson could see it painted on Zak's face. "Fuck... I'm sorry, dude..."

Zak nodded, taking Grayson’s sentiments with a bit of a sniffle. “I wasn’t even gonna go with her…I kept telling her to just leave but she was dragging me along with her…” Zak was still looking at Grayson, but his gaze was becoming more vacant as he remembered the gruesome sight. After a long moment’s silence, he finally spoke again as he wiped at his eyes. “But like you said…no point in thinking about the past. It’ll just make you sad.”
