Saturday Spankings, March 1


I enjoy Saturday Spankings each week. I enjoy all your snippets and I appreciate you coming by to read mine. In this snippet from Cassie’s Tale, we touch on the difference between abuse and domestic discipline. Cassie has experienced both. Sue doesn’t understand the difference and occasionally flares when she knows Cassie has been spanked. 


“You are not fine,” Sue snapped. “It’s plain to see he beat the shit out of you.”

I don’t have the temper I used to, but asinine statements like that can push me over the edge, and it was with cold fury that I came back at her,
“I think you need to shut up. I’ve lived with a man who beat me and you all remember that time. Think about it, right now. Remember what it was like, remember what I was like.”

They all quieted as they remembered a time we all wanted to forget, a Cassie we all wanted to forget. I left them there for a moment, “All right, snap out of it, is that how you’d describe me now?”
    Gradually small smiles played on their faces and, grudgingly, Annie muttered, “I think you and Tom are the happiest couple I know.” Sue didn’t want to agree, so she said nothing.


Read Cassie’sSpace or Cassie’s Tale to learn more about Cassie, Tom and the whole gang.


Cassie continues to live life to the fullest, from wheeling around in her new sports car to mastering the art of riding a motor scooter with no hands, she manages to keep Tom on his toes. The fly in the ointment is that Tom’s firm wants him back for a project and Cassie wants him all to herself.  When Tom takes the job, Cassie is left lonely and bored – never a good combination for her.
 Left to her own devices Cassie makes some poor decisions, frightening Sue and causing Tom to lower the boom. Tom's new schedule for Cassie, including her getting a job, leaves her little time to get herself in trouble – yet she still manages.


Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. To nearly all who know her now, Cassie is a vivacious, sweet southern lady, who is the epitome of grace and proper behavior. Look a tiny bit closer and you’ll see that Cassie has another side – the one whose language could make a sailor blush as she drinks him under the table.
 Thanks to her loving husband Tom, who even after thirty years of marriage, never hesitates to put Cassie over his knee when she strays too far from his view of ladylike behavior, few people other than close old friends know this side of Cassie exists.
 Cassie and Tom show that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. While aging may bring on challenges – the love and passion between these two people only grows stronger.

    1. Joelle,
      That's always been a hard one. Cassie knows both sides of the coin and doesn't mind talking about the differences.

  5. Like some of the above comments, I would agree, it would be nice to have a friend like "Sue" to at least bring about the considerations now and then...

    1. Deep down Sue knows that there is no abuse and she knows how much Cassie and Tom love one another, but seeing that her friend is not 'sitting' well still infuriates her.

  6. It's great that Sue is so protective, but I think she needs to trust Cassie more. At least she was quiet when confronted by the truth.

    1. She really does know Cassie's right and totally loved. But Sue loves her nearly as much as Tom does and she is very protective.

  10. I love how you weave the friendships into the story because that's a big part of Cassie's life (and most real people too). I like that Cassie and Tom are open about what they do, but not in your face. Very dignified (mostly!)

    1. Thanks Celeste, I think the relationship between these friends is as important to the story and realism as Cassie and Tom's relationship.

  11. I do like that her friend tries to protect her.

    1. Always. Sue has been toe to toe with Tom more than once. But Tom love Sue because of her total loyalty to Cassie.

  12. I like the interaction between friends. Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion, but what's most important is what Cassie knows and feels.

    1. Cassie will complain to Tom about a spanking at times, but never to the girls. And more than most Cassie knows the difference between abuse and a spanking.

  13. OOh the darker side of spanking. I'm intrigued... :) Nice to be on Sat Spanks with everyone!

    1. I hate that so many people believe that spanking is the same as abuse. I know it cuts down on those who will try our books. I hope Cassie can set some of them straight.

  14. I like the way this story is shaping up, PK.

    1. Thanks Angie, I think we should touch on the difference between abuse and DD sometimes. Cassie is pretty good at explaining it.
