Riviera was tasked with learning French numbers as well as basic greetings. He promised he'd learnt them, but struggled with his numbers. However, there was one French lesson that would perhaps aid his memory... the use of the martinet. Miss described its purpose and Riviera visibly sighed with fear, which unsettled him, but Miss was not happy that he couldn't be bothered to learn just a few basic french numbers. Made to stand up with hands out, Miss lashed his palms, which clearly stung. Time to try it out on his legs, now with his hands on his head. Then it was over the desk, pants down for a lashing, the strap marks now showing on his reddened thighs, while he was made to count in French!
