Sophia was that type of girl that couldn't allow anything to go wrong in school, but everything did. She had always tried to control everything, and it was her downfall. Her grades were good enough for college, but the scholarships didn't come rolling in as expected, and she realized that perhaps she had taken keeping control to the extreme. She was tired of being a control freak where it didn't play out, and that's when she saw the ad. It was from a nameless man on craigslist, just Mr. G, and she knew she shouldn't reply, but it was too much. She had been pushed into despair, and she thought losing control would help her lose the guilt and ascend into a better mood. She never realized what a bondage club actually involved, but she was about to find out. John was going to teach her. For once, Sophia was going to feel safe and sound even when pain, pleasure, fear, and excitement danced all around her.
