I’m back again to enjoy Saturday Spanking – and I do enjoy reading everyone’s snippets, despite how long my TBR list is growing. As promised this month I’m putting up snippets from Cassie’s Space, coming out December 11th. Most of Cassie and Tom’s story is taking place in the present, but you’ll often get a look into their past. Today’s snippet takes place early in their marriage. Having never had a man stay in her life, Cassie sometimes goes through periods of being sure Tom will eventually leave her – this belief often caused burst of anger that neither of them understand. As this snippet begins Cassie and Tom have been given the use of a remote mountain cabin – remote enough to make wandering off alone dangerous. Cassie’s anger has her wanting to get away from Tom for a little while, but Tom, coming to the end of his patience, refuses to allow her to wander in the woods alone.
“You make a move out that door and I’m going to wear you out.”
Truly neither one of us knew, at that time, what to do. I felt out of control, but I couldn’t accept Tom’s control. I decided I wouldn’t stand for it.
I turned and stormed out the door and down into the small clearing at the edge of the woods before I turned to see if Tom came after me. He had walked out on the porch, pierced me with a stare and I could see anger in his very stance.
I stood with my hands on my hips glaring at Tom as I could see him growing more and more angry. Decision made, I threw caution and sanity to the wind as I flipped him the bird.
“Fuck off!” I shouted, then took off at a dead run.
I’ll let you imagine Tom’s reaction – or you can read all about it when the book comes out.
Don’t forget to check out these wonderful snippets.
