Ziza slapped Alex' face lightly. Just enough to make a bit of noise and divert her attention.
"You'll answer to what the captain tells you," she said, "Our ship," she paused for effect, "doesn't exist as yet. Its reconfiguring itself out of any configuration I recognize. You, me, DJ, and Nix are all the captain's property. I use informal designations because I'm the counselor and I'm supposed to be everyone's friend with benefits. So forget your past existence. It doesn't matter anymore."
She grabbed the girl and pulled her into the shower. "Release left ankle," she said to the chain/snake/puppy, which obliged. Ziza caught the girl's free leg before she could try to kick or flee, and locked it into the lower shackle of one of the free showers. Within a minute, she had the girl locked down in the shower.
She walked over to the shower control and configured the auto-wash for their new crewmember. She turned gentleness all the way down, soap and scrubbing action to near the maxumum, and told it to add something for worms, eggs, and parasites into the final soaping. She smiled wickedly as she pushed the START button.
