Lady Betty and her friend lady Bertie came up with a way to make money off of this guy. He was proud and loved to brag. He also had a lot of money and they wanted a piece of it. So the mistresses trampled him and they kicked him after they had baited him by laughing at him and calling him a sissy who cannot withstand pain. He sought to prove them wrong and so they kicked him to find out. It became too painful and they told him the only way out without humiliation was for him to pay them.
