Hesplex’s baths were as extravagant as everything else that surrounded them, large beyond any reasonable size of human use and with dramatic flourishes that served no purpose beyond being visually pleasing. Ilex repeated the gestures that Autumn had gotten so used to with Solanum, moving her body on command to be stripped in short order. “You are an obedient one, aren’t you?” Ilex adored. “Any affini would practically beg for the chance to claim a pet like you, little Autumn.”

The human shivered at her touch, arm reflexively coming to rest over her chest. “I um… you’re not going to force me to do anything, right?”

“Of course not, Autumn,” Ilex rested her fingers against the bottom of Autumn’s chin, tilting her to look back towards the affini. There she saw the flat, even stare that Ilex was giving her, devoid of her usual cheery facade entirely. “The use of such force is for those who are a danger to themselves or others, or volunteers who are into that. Simply speak, and I’ll stop any time.”

Autumn nodded and, with some trepidation, lowered her hands to her side. She glanced over to Dawn, and saw that the human was back into a familiar blank stare off into the distance as Hesperia took exhausting care to clean her body. “You two really love her, don’t you?” Autumn asked as Ilex came in around her, similarly rinsing and scrubbing her flesh as well.

“More than each other,” Ilex answered with a smile. “If we could, we'd give her immortal flesh and shower her with so many luxuries even the core world's pets would be jealous. But for now we’ll settle for doing everything we possibly can to make her happy. Close your eyes, dear.” Autumn obeyed once more as Ilex vigorously scrubbed through her hair, giving her *quite* the pleasant scalp massage in the process while also sending her drugged senses dizzying into a delirious whirl that didn’t quite clear until after Ilex was already finished and rinsed her off.

A soft snap echoed out, followed by a gasp as Dawn returned to the waking world once more. “Bath is ready!” Hesperia called out. Autumn turned her head to see she’d drawn a, unsurprisingly, luxurious bubble bath for the two and was already climbing into it herself with Dawn in her arms. Dawn gave a sleepy sort of ‘yaaay’ that turned into a bubbling noise when she hit the water, followed by lightly flailing until she resurfaced and spat up the bubbles that had gotten into her mouth. Hesperia, for her part, broke out into loving laughter before smothering Dawn in crushing hugs and going on and on about how cute she is.

“Would you like me to carry you as well, or are you feeling up to walking?” Ilex asked, one hand on Autumn’s shoulder and the other on her thigh.

“I get the feeling you’re hoping I’d ask you to carry me.”

“Of course I am, little one.” Ilex smiled.

Autumn broke into a small giggle, then grabbed her hand. “Well then, may you please carry me?”

“Gladly.” Ilex swept Autumn off her feet and carried her into the baths-

“Wait,” Autumn grabbed Ilex’s simulated clavicle. “Are these implants waterproof?”

“Of course they are!” Ilex gave her a soft smile in response, then continued to climb into the tub. No sooner was she in the warm water than did she feel a pleasant sparking sensation bloom over her skin, overriding the dull ache and numb haze that was there before in favor of a pleasant buzz that slowly seeped in around her. Autumn gave out a soft, almost sensual sort of sigh as it all bled into her system, her body slowly going limp into Ilex’s grasp as it crawled up, around, inside of her and softly assuaged her mind.

Dawn quietly scooted up next to Autumn. “Feels nice, doesn’t it? This is my favorite mix ‘cause it always leaves my skin feeling super soft and smooth afterwards. There’re others though if you want to try them. Later, I mean, since, like, we’re already in a bath?”

“Of course, you could feel it every day if you chose to become our pet as well.” Hesperia added, leaning over from behind Dawn as she spoke.

“Oh!” Dawn raised her hand, “I’d like to be your pet!”

“Hmm, I don’t know…” Hesperia made a mock sort of thinking gesture with her hand under her chin. “Being a pet is super difficult, I hear. Do you think you can handle it?”

“Super difficult, huh?” Dawn mirrored her gesture. “Like what do you mean?”

“Well, a pet has to be adored all day long. And handle getting a ridiculous amount of love and affection from their owners. Not to mention the *very* difficult job of being absolutely adorable but just being themselves all day.”

“Drat, just adorable? I might just be too cute for that then.” Dawn shrugged. “Shame.”

“That’s okay, little flower, I think I’ll take you anyway.” Hesperia said with a more domineering twist, running her hand along the underside of Dawn’s chin to elicit a soft gasp, then tackling her under the water entirely.

Autumn, meanwhile, had basically spent the entire conversation in silent surprise before the whole thing just clicked together in her mind. “You two are the type who’d propose to their wife every week just for fun, aren’t you?” She said, turning to Ilex as Dawn’s flailings turned into open laughter from Hesperia tickling her.

“More like every day, but yes. We do enjoy a bit of flirting more than most.”

Dawn scrambled over behind Autumn, gasping for air between fits of continued giggles and kicking up water over everyone as she did before she wrapped herself around the human, pointing accusingly towards Hesperia. “Help!” She gasped out, her face bright red from the veritable assault she’d just taken. “The big bad affini is after me!”

“Now, now, little one.” Hesperia said, easily saddling up on the opposite side of Autumn and looming over the both of them with a predatory gleam in her eye. “What is it that we always say, it’ll be *for your own good*?”

Autumn automatically threw up her hands, winced at the attempt to move her broken arm, then said “I surrender, I don’t think this is a fight I can win.”

“D’aww,” Ilex cooed, sliding up behind Dawn to pincer in the two humans. “What a well behaved human, surrendering for us.”

“You could learn a thing or two from her, Dawn.” Hesperia added, running her hands through Autumn’s hair as she spoke.

“Hey, I can be good too!” Dawn pouted. She scooped up some of the piles of bubbles around them and lazily tossed it towards Hesperia, letting it spiral about to the side in low-spin gravity where it, eventually, landed completely off it’s mark against the far window.

“I don’t know…” Hesperia’s voice took a mocking sort of tone. She reached out and grabbed Autumn by the wrist, taking her and spinning her around to hold her in her lap. Autumn felt as if she would have been terrified of the gesture if she wasn’t currently dosed so far out her ass hard enough that she was basically incapable of feeling anxiety at all and didn’t also know that this was basically the affini equivalent of playful flirting. “Maybe we’ll just take her and play with her all night.”
Dawn gasped. “Rude!”

Ilex wrapped the human up into her own arms, pinning her close to the affini’s torso. “What wrong, little Dawn? Jealous for her?”

Dawn blushed fiercely, turning her head to the side in a vain attempt to hide. “...Maybe a little.”
Ilex shifted her grip, holding up Dawn’s arms to the side and baring her towards Hesperia and, by extension, Autumn. “Are you jealous for us too, little flower?”

Dawn nodded silently.

“Use your words.” Ilex commanded.

“I’m jealous because I want the attention she’s getting and also I kind ofmaybehaveacrushonherokay?”

Autumn blinked. What?

“Isn’t she adorable?” Ilex purred.

Hesperia nestled up on Autumn’s shoulder. “Positively lovely.”

“We adore the way she squirms, even when she wants us.” Ilex vines drifted up through the clouding fog of bubbles to writhe over Dawn’s body, tightening their grip around her ribs and pinning her firmly in place.

“It’s a form of fun, really. A play at resistance so we can break her all over again.” Hesperia’s hands trailed up to Autumn’s sides, pressing into her ribs with only the slightest pressure. “Don’t forget to breathe, little one.” She purred. Autumn hadn’t realized she’d been holding her breath. Her head felt as if it was full of liquid heat that could pour out of her ears if she so much as tipped her head to the side. Her vision was blurred around the edges, dyed in the soft golden lights that were everywhere over the Baiera and oh god fuck she was turned on wasn’t she what the hell dirt sod roots thats embarrassing. When she tried to cover herself in some vague attempt to dispel her own mental fog Hesperia responded by looping vines around her arms, pulling them back and down to her sides instead. “Say the word and I’ll stop,” Hesperia whispered. Autumn remained silent. “What a good girl you are.”
Dawn pulled against her restraints, muscles flexing futilely against the plant matter that had pinned her down and pulled her open. At first she was defiant, close-eyed and mouth shut as she pulled side to side, but as her energy wound down her face took on more of a rosy hue, followed by her eyes drifting open to reveal a distant look. Her lips weakened, then broke into open gasping for air that turned into desperate pants as her struggle gained no traction.

“See, she likes to be held to struggle against her bonds.” Hesperia purred into Autumn’s ears. “She loves testing the restraints to prove their strength, to prove that she is safely held in place.” Dawn gasped once more, but this time it was laced with hints of an open moan. “She finds it comforting, on top of being a reminder of how much we own her.” A pair of vines slid up around Autumn’s neck, trailing over the implanted collar to grip her jaw and push her towards looking directly at Dawn. “How does she look to you?”
Dawn’s face had drawn into a distant expression. Not with the usual void in her eyes but with a faint wanting glimmer of desperation that mirrored her flushed cheeks and open mouth. Her body had been practically overrun by sensations by the affini holding her, further enhanced by the drugs that happily burnt through her nerves and set them aflame. She was *desperate*. Wanting. Practically begging. “She’s beautiful.” Autumn answered.

“We agree.” Hesperia smiled.
“Dawn, dear, could you please answer me a question?” Ilex asked, and Dawn replied with a wanting gasp. “What is two plus two?”

“I don’t-” Dawn answered quickly. Her voice was an absolute mess. “Fuck, I don’t know. I can’t think.”

“Hrmm, we do like it when you can’t think.”

“But that’s not the right answer, is it?”

“It’s a simple math equation, little flower.”

“Are you telling us you don’t have enough brain power even for that”

“Yes!” Dawn cried out. “It’s too much, I can’t, I’m-” She breathed in deep, voice breaking apart into a guttural sort of raw noise

“Poor little human,” Hesperia teased.

“Not even able to think through a simple question.”

“Perhaps something easier?”

“I suppose that’s fair.” Ilex shifted two vines to push Dawn to look back towards Autumn. “How about you tell us about your little crush?”

“Um, fuck, I-” Dawn’s face, somehow, seemed to get even more flushed at that suggestion.

“Don’t forget to use your words,” Ilex teased. “Or else I might just let the restraints go.”

Dawn whined once more, then went limp in place in defeat. “Okay!” She practically yelled. “She’s- she’s super pretty and nice and sweet and she wasn’t looking at me with *pity* like those other humans do and she liked the games I had and it felt nice to be around her and, and, and, and I don’t know!! I have a crush, I haven’t figured it out beyond that.” Her voice had trailed off into an embarrassed sort of whimper as she ran on, leaving Autumn with a frankly bewildering amount of flattery landing flat in her lap.
Autumn felt like she had to say something. However, her thoughts were flowing about as smoothly as thick syrup. “Uh,” She stuttered. “Uh… same?”

“Same.” Hesperia echoed.

“Same mood.” Ilex added.

“Aww, would you look at that? It looks like we all have a crush on Autumn.” Hesperia punctuated her sentence by moving the vines from Autumn’s jaw up to ruffle her hair. “Autumn, dear, may I give you a kiss on the cheek?” Hesperia asked. Autumn nodded, and was given a quick peck on one side.

“May I?” Ilex slid over, still pinning Dawn close to her. Autumn nodded again, and got a peck on the other side to match Hesperia’s affection. Dawn made some sort of noise, but she was clearly too out of it to even comprehend where she was at that point. “I think she’s jealous.”

“Or perhaps has been in the bath for too long and is getting a little too warm.”

“Perhaps both?”

“This would be a wonderful time to let her cool off, I think.”

“And how are you, Autumn?”

“I’m good!” The human tensed up as the attention shifted back to her. “Well, a little overwhelmed? I’m not used to so much attention or compliments or interest or, uh, all of that. Is the room spinning?”

“Technically, yes.”

“But on your scale? No.”

“Perhaps this bath mix is a touch too strong for you.”

“For now at least.”

“Come along, dear. We’ll get you ready for bed.” Another quiet rumble shook through the Baiera.
