It all started innocently enough when Melly asked me to come over to her. I could tell she had treats in her hand.

Did you know that I can tell if you watch my videos or not? YouTube keeps track of that sort of thing. It really hurts my feelings if I go through all this trouble and humiliation and then no one watches. I don’t want to beg, but…
