The leash goes both ways

The other night I murmured, as I always do before bed,

"I'm yours, Master".

And he replied, as he always does,

"I know, slave". 

Then he added, unusually,

"I'm yours too". 

I thought about that a second, surprised, and asked,

"You are?"  

He replied, "Of course. The leash goes both ways".

It reminded me of this quote:  "No one chains a slave without chaining himself." -M. Gandhi

We are certainly tied together, even when he holds the leash and I'm held by it.   He leads and I follow, but we are still attached.
