Welcome to Saturday Spankings once again. I’m taking my snippet today from Cassie’s Conflict, the fifth book in the Cassie’s Space series. Cassie spent the afternoon downing a couple of pitchers of martinis with Sue. You can read that snippet here. Tom picked her up and brought her home without much to say… until the next morning.
Tom brought me some scrambled eggs and dry toast and thankfully, coffee. As I ate slowly, I tried to begin, “Tom, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what came over me yesterday. I…”
He interrupted me. “I know exactly what happened. I don’t want to talk about it just now. Can you get up? I want you to go ahead and take your shower.”
I don’t like it when Tom won’t talk to me. But it was in my best interest to be as agreeable as possible. Standing in the shower, I began to realize how a mouse must feel with the cat prowling outside its home. My thoughts were racing with anything I could possibly say to talk my way out of this one. Nothing came to mind other than blaming Sue for mixing the martinis in the first place, but somehow I didn’t think that was going to get me far.
I tried to reassure myself. Tom hadn’t punished me in a long time. Perhaps he was mellowing a bit. He hardly ever spanks with anything but his hand these days and even though a hard hand spanking from Tom is nothing to sneeze at, I knew I could handle it. Taking comfort from these thoughts, I slipped on my robe, took a deep breath and came out into the bedroom.
Tom was sitting quietly in the chair waiting for me. He was rubbing the smooth side of the ivory brush against his hand. He looked sternly at me and said, “Now, I’m ready to talk.”
