Mistress Anita had no time for this backbiter. She was close to him but when she realized that he was a backbiter, she knew that she would not have anything to do with him because she did not trust him anymore. When he tried to go to her to beg for mercy, she forgave him but told him that things would not go back to being how they were. When he tried to insist, she used her boots to degrade him. He had to lick them clean.
