17 the mustering

Safekeeping

There was something awesome about those whips the guards wielded.  Before, his minders had explained how the military had developed them as the ultimate tool for corporal punishment.

A soldier had put a foot seriously wrong  ..  had fucked up  ..  But the military had invested a lot in a trained soldier, he was an asset.  Just needed to understand the risk of messing up again.

Some fit military type marched out for punishment before his mates  ..  tied to a stake.  His manliness tied down.  His muscled wilfulness publicly tamed.  First, teaching him a lesson he’d not forget.  Second, shaming him with breaking down.  Third,  ..  a reminder to the troops  ..  to those watching.

Use a conventional whip on him  ..  as in the old times  ..  Ka-Lan’s guide concluded  ..  his back would soon be helluva mess.  Weeks before he could be useful again  ..  days of recuperation  ..  lighter duties.  A useful asset made useless because he’d acted like some asshole.
Someone had a good idea.  Had commissioned the power-whip.
