Madame Marissa like a slave who shows initiative. Her slave did not and she did not like it. She had to do something about it and she did. She humiliated him so as to show him she was the boss and he had to do what she said. If she wanted him to show initiative, he had better do or she would humiliate him. She spat on some food in the kitchen and crushed it using her boots and made him eat it from the soles of her boots.
