5A. Tale of the First Eunuch, Bukhayt

Bukhayt is a slave who coupled with the daughter of his owner. When she marries a barber he is gelded, but still has sex with her as a eunuch. When everybody dies he is confiscated by the Royal Treasury.

Bukhayt was brought up with the purchaser’s daughter and he was mocked a lot. When Bukhayt is ten and the daughter twelve they sport each other resulting in the loss of the ‘maidenhead’, virginity, of the girl. The mother discovers the deed but hides it from her husband. When the daughter is married to a barber, Bukhayt is gelded and becomes the daughter’s eunuch. He stays with her for a long time and also couples with her (he only lost his testes). When everybody is dead, the mother, the father and the bride and bridegroom, he is confiscated by the Royal Treasury. He then met the other two slaves.

Now the seond eunuch gives his tale.
