Happy Saturday Spankings! I’m continuing with snippets from the seventh in the Cassie Space series, Cassie’s Ordeal. In last weeks snippet Cassie endured a hard spanking for ignoring a direct request from Tom and hiding it all from him. It was a serious spanking, but it did clear the air.
As Sue comes to visit Cassie the next day, it’s obvious to her too.
Sue stopped at the bottom of the steps and gave me a scrutinizing gaze.
“What?” I asked, when she said nothing.
Sue came up on the deck continuing to stare. I was beginning to feel self-conscience when she broke into a big grin.
“You got your butt beat last night!” she announced, obviously pleased with herself.
“I did not!” I told her emphatically. I suppose regardless of how old I get immediate denial of anything I don’t want to acknowledge will be my first thought.
“The hell you didn’t!” Sue crowed.
I was mad. “Why do you say that?” I snapped. Sue ignored me and went in for her coffee. I was sitting, gingerly, when she returned, still chuckling.
“It’s a good thing Tom cut your gambling career short years ago, ‘cause your poker face sucks.”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” I snapped.
“Aww, Cassie,” she started, “You haven’t been yourself since the wreck, well at least since we got back from the island. You haven’t talked, you don’t smile like yourself. You’ve been mean and surly. I’m surprised it took old Tom this long to beat it out of you. This is the first morning you’ve looked like you.”
“You’re nuts,” I told her dismissively.
We sat in silence for a while, the Sue quietly asked. “So, did he find out somehow or did you tell him?”
So much for secrets. “I told him,” I admitted glumly. “How did you know, really?” I asked her.
“Seriously, it was the way you looked this morning,” She insisted. “Tom can be a real ass at times, but evidently, for you two, this spanking crap works. You look ten years younger with that guilty secret off your back.
Cassie loves her life on the river with Tom and her friends. She feels Tom has her wrapped in a safe and protected cocoon of love. But her world is jarred when the phone calls begin. Cassie hesitates to tell Tom about them knowing he’ll over react and she will be the one under ‘house arrest’. But when the calls go from annoying to frightening she has no choice. Tom brings in the police to find out who is behind the harassment and makes plans to keep Cassie safe, but he’s too late – Cassie is gone without a trace.
The police begin an all-out search, but there are few clues to go on. Will life on the river ever be the same again?
