Saturday Spanking - Small accident

This week certainly flew by! It’s time for Saturday Spankings again. Thank you for coming by for a snippet. I’m trying to give a flavor of the Cassie series for a few weeks and today’s snippet is from the second book, Cassie’s Tale.

Tom is away on business and Cassie has spent a long, lonely sleepless night without him. Although it’s completely against Tom’s rules, she decides to use some over the counter sleep aids – not her best decision.

I felt almost smug as I clutched my little bag of sleep. I didn’t want to take it too early because I wanted to sleep through the night so I found an old movie, opened another bottle of wine and settled in. Around nine I swallowed two pills and poured another glass, assuming the wine would help the pills word. And yes, I do realize now just how foolishly I acted.
An hour later found me still awake and completely annoyed at the pills. I wanted to sleep. Maybe another one would do the trick. Grabbing the bottle, I quickly took another one or maybe two, I can’t remember and washed them down with the last of the wine. I leaned to put the wine glass on the nightstand when must have misjudged the distance and the glass smashed on the edge of the nightstand.
Cursing I reached to pick up one piece and evidently didn’t see one sticking up. I sliced the side of my hand from the little finger all the way past my wrist. It hurt like the dickens, but I didn’t think it needed stitches or anything like that. Although it did seem to be bleeding quite a bit.
Of course, that was then that the sleeping pills truly began to work.

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.

  1. Yikes! Not good. Not good at all. It's bad enough for her to take sleeping pills against Tom's wishes, but taking them with alcohol is adding insult to her injury, and I don't mean her cut hand....

  2. Oh goodness, I'm with Kathryn, definitely not wise to mix pills and alcohol and Cassie has now put herself in danger. Tom will definitely not be happy!


    1. It could have been a major disaster. Fortunately Tom ask Sue to check on her.

  3. Wow. Pills and alcohol aren't a good mix. Add in the slashed wrist and she's in big trouble.

    1. Tom is against her drinking alone and the pills nearly pushed him over the edge on this one.

  4. I remember this passage well. It was one of Cassie's dumbest decisions. Too scary. Especially for Sue!

    Hugs From Ella

    1. Yep, about as dumb as it gets. You're right, so very scary for all.

  5. She is going to be so busted when Tom gets home.

  6. Oops! She's in trouble again, silly girl mixing drugs and booze. I remember this book and loved it. Then again, I love all Cassie and Tom books.

    1. Thanks Holla! Oh, she really messed up this time. Tom's going to pitch a fit.

  7. Oh my word. She's in for it now... although I do feel her pain. Sleep is never important until you aren't getting any! Great snippet!

    1. Cassie and lonely don't do well together - then add a sleepless night. She was desperate.
