In the old email, I find this from Hakim (this is the entire missive):

i need a free girl to sleep with

Ya gotta wonder. What kind of free does he have in mind? Are we talking free speech or free beer here?

It’s puzzling. Is he saying that slavegirls just don’t do it for him? Or is he just anxious to explain that he won’t pay, after?

And I won’t even begin to worry about why Hakim saw fit to share this decidedly ambiguous need of his with me.
