Scarlett doesn't like being a submissive. Nor does she like being controlled. But will she like Ashton Irwin? How ironic that the most disobedient submissive somehow ends up with the most strict dominant. or Scarlett and Ashton live in a world of dominants and submissives, in which all thirteen year olds take a test to determine which they are. Submissives are taken from their families and placed in a BDSM school where they share a flat with a fellow sub. When they turn eighteen, they take a test and are paired with a dominant, to whom they must obey. Scarlett may love her flatmate, but she really hates her reality. Side of Malum.
