The heroine of this fantasy is the Lady Samantha Muircastle, an English aristocrat. Her father, the 12th Lord Muircastle, Laird of Glencairn, Colonel and Commander-in-Chief of The Queen’s Own Royal Glencairn Highland Regiment, and a widower, had decided to send his only child, the young Lady Samantha, to the Wulluf Boarding School for Girls, in Oxford, to be followed at age 13 by five years boarding at Roedean, on the South coast. Followed at 18, by two years at the Swiss Instut Villa Pierrefeu at Glion, where she became fluent in French, German, Italian and Romansh. Samantha was taught the finer points of diplomacy, etiquette, hostessing, protocol, personal presentation and most importantly, the ability to live life well and with intelligent enjoyment, meeting every situation with poise, good manners, and elegance. At the age of 20, a polished and sophisticated Lady Samantha returned to Oxford and attended St. Hilda's College. She was a credit to her father, worked hard and obtained Master's Degrees in History, French and Music. Sadly for Samantha, her father died before she graduated, leaving her with a 2000 acre estate in Scotland with a stately home. Also another huge country home on the Cambridge - Norfolk borders, which she regards as her main residence. Unlike many British aristocratic families the Muircastles had not only managed to keep their wealth, but the shrewd investments of her ancestral predecessors made Lady Samantha wealthy beyond imagination. Her inherited portfolio of properties were as far apart as Manhattan's Upper East side, Bel Air in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Tokyo, St. Tropez and Park Lane, London. To her amusement she is currently 64th in the Royal line of Succession to the British throne. Lady Samantha is now 27 and has been married for three years to a man the same age as her Father, had the Laird lived. She loves her husband dearly, but due to a heart condition and other illnesses there is no sexual element between them. She could be described as a petite Anna Kournikova look-alike. Her face and long blonde hair are strikingly similar. But whereas Ms Kournikova is 5’ 7” tall and weighs 56 Kg., Lady Samantha is 5’2” and weighs in at 46Kg., with vital statistics of 32B - 23 - 34. Her breasts are perky and quite generously proportioned on her small but luscious frame With a narrow waist, full hips and long, lean legs tapering to trim ankles, she turns heads in any environment. Although not of Ms Kournikova’s brilliance, Samantha is still an exceedingly good tennis player, and plays with determination, enthusiasm, fitness and intelligence, attributes inherited from her father. From her mother she inherited a quick wit, a small pouting mouth with full lips, a straight little nose, perfect teeth and deep blue/green smiling eyes. Friends say that she could easily pass as being just 17. Samantha’s naked skin is permanently coloured a golden brown with sexy white bikini tan lines from the continental and tropical sun. Skin that is only ever seen and never touched by anyone other than her sick husband. To while away some hours at home, whilst nursing her beloved husband, Lady Samantha has taken to playing a computer game known as Second Life. An innocent enough game with beautiful avatars, both male and female interacting with each other on the computer screen. Samantha had been enjoying the game for several months until she met a male avatar named Riddler, a committed dominant and self-styled Master. For a very brief time Samantha was his Second Life slave girl. During this time Samantha became fascinated by the lifestyle of a submissive and also deeply attached to her dominant Master. Using text, Riddler had been able to assist Samantha to achieve a number of self-administered orgasms whilst instructing her in her masturbation techniques. After just a few brief weeks Riddler moved on to another slave and Samantha was rejected, but not before being introduced by Riddler to an American dominant, using an avatar named Shadow. He was a different kind of dominant to Riddler. Vastly more experienced and a real life, lifestyle Master, he had been acting as a mentor to Riddler, a comparative beginner. Shadow took over Samantha who very quickly became entranced by his role-playing skills and references to real life situations. Very soon Samantha decided that at the first opportunity she would break the cardinal rule of second life and travel to the United States and be Shadow’s real life slave, on a two or three week trial. Her orgasms achieved with Shadow’s help were at least equal in intensity to those with Riddler and would leave her exhausted and satisfied at her computer keyboard. This is where things stood after approximately twelve months. Then, one day, Shadow instructed Samantha to submit herself to Riddler again, his pupil. Not just on Second Life, but for real, in the flesh. Samantha was shocked. She had not so much as spoken to Riddler in all that time, but now things were moving to a new dimension. Play would become real. After reacquainting herself with Riddler, on Second Life, and finding that her feelings towards him were undiminished, Samantha made the decision to comply with Shadow‘s request on the understanding that he would remain her ultimate Master. In no time at all, having arranged for a nurse to attend the house daily to help her husband Lady Samantha was on a train to Croydon, an undistinguished, dull and grubby London suburb. This is where the story starts.
