This story turned out to be much different than what I was expecting. Bran is an extremely sweet pleasure slave with a habit of trying to escape. This causes him to be sold to the slave breakers, a couple who trains young slaves and retrains unmanageable ones before reselling them. Most of Bran's mistreatment occurred prior to this story, so Bran is now learning to trust a gentle hand. The trainers, slaves and others.in the household make for one interesting family. I'm looking forward to reading the next segment to see how everyone is doing.
