Forever in uniform
I had been put in charge of coming up with all FLR ideas and implementing them. Athena just went along for the ride. Whenever I suggested an idea, Athena just did it. We didn’t talk much about it. So I wasn’t sure if Athena really did like the activities, or she was indulging me. On a lunch date, I decided to ask. I had been wearing a symbolic slave uniform which was an old cheap watch every evening. I took it off in the mornings before going to work. So I wasn’t wearing the watch during lunch. I raised my wrist, pointing to it with the other hand, and asked, “About the slave uniform I was wearing,” Athena cut me off before I could finish my sentence. “You will keep doing that everyday all the time. Including holidays or when you do business travel. We’ll continue our FLR without interruption. You can keep coming up with new ideas. It’s fun. It’s definitely making my life easier.” I got my answer. Athena added, “It was going to be a surprise, but since you brought up the conversation, I bought you a bracelet. You can wear that instead of the cheap Casio watch. We should receive it in the next few days. I thought you’d like that.” Athena actually took an initiative. I had been doing it right. I thought I’d just push for a tiny more. After all, she asked me to come up with new ideas. “Would you like me to wear the uniform all the time?” I asked. “Do it” was her reply.
