We now have this slave subject to our power. If he had known before that Mistress Anfisa and Lady Nora would take away his control over his breath, he would not have dared to meet us. I am convinced of it! But now he is in a fix, lying defenseless on the floor. Mistress Anfisa encloses his nose and mouth with her hands and starts to take away his air. We look him directly in the eyes and can see how filled with fear they are. Mistress Anfisa lets him go and I press my hands on his face so that he has no chance to breathe. With us he simply learns to do without!
