When Swan comes home, she doesn't find her slave in proper uniform. She is not happy with him and she is not interested in his excuses. She orders him to take off his shirt and lay across the ottoman. She tells him to keep his mouth open as she tells him how ugly and pathetic he is. She doesn't care that he doesn't like her spitting on him. She spits in his mouth and dares him not to swallow. He swallows because she has him cowed and trained.
