Helping: how far am I prepared to go?

Yesterday, I helped Lynettea by writing some of my thoughts in Japanese and letting her take them in to her Japanese class.
 Far from being grateful, she admitted to me that she had let the teacher think it was her work. One of the other students even remarked it would be a nice children's story. I am not sure if I should be offended by that.
Today Lynettea told me she might practice by giving me commands in Japanese. I don't think I will like this. She started by looking up something in Google translate and telling me not to sit on the bed. I found her accent difficult to understand and think she needs to practice (but not on me).
I always sit on the bed. Why should I get off?
Lynettea said, 'I am practicing negative constructions, Sasha.'

Well, negative constructions or no, I can see you're staying on that bed!

It is really your bed so no matter what language she tells you to get off in, make sure you stay.

Thank you kitties. It is really my bed. I hadn't thought of that. She must be bluffing me.

Two negatives make a positive, right Sasha? So when Lynettea gives you a negative construction, if you say "NO," then it really means "yes." So you're right to stay on the bed! :)
