I got severely whipped yesterday by my master, for asking questions. For 2 weeks, whenever I asked a question, any question, he'd just ignore it and refuse to reply. This was his coldness towards me. Before he always addressed my issue and reassure me. Apparently, after the whipping yesterday, he made it very clear to me, that a master does not have to explain himself or answer to a slave ever, so he don't ever want to hear another question out of my mouth. Any questions asked will be punished. This means, even a simple question like, "How is master doing today?" is forbidden. I'm really uncomfortable with that. It feels like a one way communication now. Only his allowed to ask the questions and my job is simply to answer questions, but no asking anything.
