A short time later there is a knock at her door. A young and not unattractive male Elf -a wood elf by all appearances- pale skinned, greenish-blond hair, a black number 23 tattooed to his left shoulder, and dressed only in the briefest of loincloths, arrives with a wooden tray containing a frothy drink in a hefty tankard, a large tack of meat, some bread and something that looks like mushrooms next to a hearty looking soup in a bowl.
"With the Lady Arachne's comliments." he says, eyes to the floor.

Phaing leaps from the bed and stretches, eyeing the fellow with the food. "Put it on the table." She says, shaking herself out, and then; "Hey, eyes up here me, I don't like it when people who bring me food can't look me in the eye ... especially in a place like this. And-"
She stops, staring at the platter, and splutters; "By the un-hairy balls of Orcus, all that is for me? Seriously, where am I supposed to put it all?"

She glances down at her small waist and shrugs at him... and then rolls her eyes as her own tummy starts to growl like a grumpy kitten.

"Alright, I know the routine. You slaves pile on the portions in the hope that there will be enough left over to keep yourselves alive." She holds up a hand if he starts to protest, and smiles. "Relax, I've been there too. Let's cut to the chase; take half that meat and have it yourself, and wash it down with some of what's in that mug."

If he hesitates, she asks; "You did say it came from Lady Arachne, didn't you? Come now, do this for me and you will get a better share." She takes a seat and dips a little of the bread into the soup.
"What is your name, by the way?"

The slave glanced nervously about the room, then over his shoulder before answering, his eyes dropping to the floor. Phaing could see that he was nervous about looking at her. Perhaps it was a slave thing? It might have had something to do with the fact that she was still competely naked.

"I am slave 23." he said in a low hushed voice. "Though I was once called Thevis." he obediently knelt before her table and began to test some of the food on her tray.

Slave 23, Thevis stayed obediently on his knees as Phaing chatted with him and got washed and dressed. (Yes there's a large bowl in a hollow in the wall that holds water. It can be emptied into a natural drain-like fissure below it and replenishes slowly from natural cave moisture that drips from a stalagmite above it. The shape of the bowl cases the water to slide down a smooth incline rather than making an annoyingly constant drip drip drip. A similarly designed cover for the bowl allows the water to quietly slide down the back and into the drain when its full)

He kept his eyes low except when she addressed him directly and glanced up to meet her eyes fearfully. He answered her with silent nods, shakes of his head or shrugged and said little to nothing. He looked thoughtful when she asked about who he'd rebel against, though he offered no reply, glancing about fearfully instead.

When she was done he got to his feet, accepted her gift with a bemused look, then scurried out of her sight, leaving the doorway wide open.

(I'll pause here in case you had wanted her to do something right away while alone. If she's going to wait around instead, let me know and I'll post again.)
