Guest Post - 6/30/15 - Owning His Bride by Sue Lyndon - #SciFi #Spanking #SARTG

Sue Lyndon is here to chat about her Science Fiction Spanking Romance (with a hint of BDSM) titled "Owning His Bride." Before we get into the details of this hot and sexy book, I asked Sue what her favorite scene was to write, and she said:

"Ohhh definitely the medical exam scene. Poor Becca couldn’t leave the prison without passing the required exam, so she was very reluctant to cooperate, and her reluctance and embarrassment made that scene quite enjoyable to write."

She did have a bit of the medical scene to share, but I don't want to spoil the suspense for anyone, so I'm sharing the excerpt where Becca explains how she ended up in the prison to start.


Excerpt:

 “What was your crime, Becca?”
Her jaw clenched and she swallowed hard. “My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Terrina, the planet with the really tall trees. We were on our way through the Interstellar Port when a large stash of drugs was discovered in my carryon. They weren’t my drugs, in fact my boyfriend mockingly whispered in my ear that they belonged to him, but it didn’t matter to the authorities. It was my word against his, and he had a fancy lawyer. Now I’m here, and next month I’ll be God-knows-where with the warden.”
He believed that the drugs weren’t hers. She looked trusting and innocent, and that’s probably why her so-called boyfriend picked her as his vacation companion while he attempted to smuggle drugs. This sort of thing happened all the time, and the authorities showed no mercy. If the bags belonged to you, the contents inside also belonged to you. No matter what.
Hunter put a hand on her thigh, not to intimidate her, but to calm her sudden shaking. “My five-year service contract is up before the warden’s. I have seven days left. Perhaps I will claim you as my bride.”
She inhaled in a quick, shaky breath and regarded him with suspicion. “But, but you don’t know me.”
He laughed. “With the number of blocks and the frequent rotation of guards on each block, none of the guards really get to know the inmates. That’s the point of the rotations. It keeps the inmates well-behaved because they want to try to catch every single guard’s attention, and it keeps the guards from showing favor to any woman in particular, thus quelling any jealousy from starting up amongst the prisoners. You’re right, I don’t know you. But I know the warden, and I know he doesn’t have a kind cell in his body.”
She cast a wary glance at the camera.
“Don’t worry about the camera. I hope he’s watching right now.”
Her hands twisted in her lap around the handkerchief, and he longed to comb the tangles out of her hair with his fingers. Hell, he longed to wrap his arms around her and carry her straight to his bunk in the officers’ quarters.
Just one more week. He’d never felt a particular attachment to any of the females here, but the first time he’d laid eyes on Becca a week ago as she walked to her cell after recreation time, he’d felt a strange pull toward her. He’d kept an eye on her since then, from a distance.
“Please pick another inmate,” she whispered. Fear glimmered in her eyes. “Please don’t pick me.”



Blurb:

After enduring the first two years of a life sentence for a crime she didn’t commit, there is one thing Becca fears more than spending the rest of her days behind bars. When their five-year terms of service on the frozen prison planet of Kemmius are up, guards are allowed to choose a bride from among the prisoners, and the warden himself has set his sights on her.

Hunter has hated the warden from the moment he met him, and he’ll be damned if he is going to let the vile man have a sweet, beautiful girl like Becca. Not when his own term as a guard is almost up and he’ll have the chance to claim her first and make her his own.

Following a thorough, humiliating medical exam—standard procedure to ensure a potential bride’s suitability as a mate—Becca finds herself bound to Hunter forever as both his wife and his property. While her new husband quickly proves to be nothing like the cruel warden, he is still a man who expects to be obeyed, and she soon learns that defiance will be dealt with firmly.

Though she is left blushing each time Hunter bares her bottom for a sound spanking—and sometimes for other, more intimate punishments—what truly shames Becca is the way her body responds to his dominance. But even as her feelings for Hunter grow stronger and her future seems brighter than it has in many years, Becca cannot help wondering if she will ever truly be free of the chains of the past.

#SPeekSunday - 6/28/15 - Arrested by Love - Who is the other guy? #DD #Spanking


He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday.  For this hop we get to share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).

My submission for this week is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love.  A handsome, but strict, police officer  decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.

Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.


After Kyle makes it clear to Tiffany that speeding will earn her much more than a ticket from him, he gives into the inevitable and asks her out on a date.  He loves her, but isn't sure he's the right guy for her.  However, he no longer fights the attraction between them as he dates her exclusively, but Tiffany wants more, so she makes her stand, and Kyle makes it clear how her life will change if they get married.  And he persists by asking if she even thought she could live on a budget.  When she informs him she is not fiscally irresponsible, he tells her that if she can live for one month on the budget he sets for her, and show how she'd been able to save the rest of her salary, without going to her daddy for help, he will ask her to marry him.  But after two weeks in a row of going over, Tiffany seeks out her father in a tearful panic. He agrees to bail her out, but warns her that men can forgive a lot, but lying is something they find difficult to excuse. So, by lying to Kyle, Tiffany finds herself swiftly spiraling downward into a morass of guilt that has her sobbing when he proposes. Confused, Kyle tries to get to the root of the problem as he comforts her. When he suspects she's trying to tell him she's fallen for another guy, he asks her when it happened.


            She winced.  "Four weeks ago, when we first started our test.  I'm so sorry, Kyle."
            With a nod, he lifted her off his lap, but looked at her when she clutched desperately at his arm.  "Please.  Don't hate me."
            He ran a calming hand through her hair.  "I could never hate you, Tiffany."
            When she continued to cling to his arm and sob, he finally pulled free to wrap it back around her.  "Can you at least tell me who he is?"
            She straightened at that question and gave him a puzzled look.  "Who who is?" she asked, using the facial tissue he'd handed her so she could dry her eyes and blow her nose.
            "The guy you want to be with now instead of me."


Tiffany loves Kyle, and wants to prove to him she can will make a good wife, except she's never tried to keep to a budget before, and she quickly discovers it's much harder than she originally thought.  She knows going to her father is against the rules, but she can't face Kyle's disappointment for the second week in a row, so she breaks the rule, convincing herself she'll make it up in another way. However, when she falls short yet again, she begins to feel like a total failure, and actually bursts into tears when Kyle proposes. Kyle, of course, begins to suspect the worst.

#SatSpanks - 6/27/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - Some things are not meant to be shared #BDSM #Spanking


She needed his protection, except he insisted on her honest submission first.

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is from my first BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.  I'm picking up exactly where we left off last time.


In this scene, Jim, a former Texan who works as a police detective by day and lives and plays as a Dom by night, is in the Velvet Chains BDSM medical station working with his new submissive, Kelly Franklin.  When Kelly balks, Jim suspects fear, rather than brattiness, is responsible for her reaction.  After giving her repeated opportunities to tell him what's bothering her, he decides to continue with his original agenda.  However, when Kelly discovers he intends to give her an enema, her fear increases exponentially, which validates his suspicions, but doesn't address Kelly's lack of trust or stubborn refusal to obey.  So, after reminding his reluctant sub what BDSM is about, Jim gives her an ultimatum.  Say her safe word or submit to his will.  Kelly agrees to do what he wants, despite the persistent inner voice urging her to run away.  Though Jim's purpose is not to humiliate or punish Kelly, her previous experience with medical BDSM was both embarrassing and painful. When she tells Jim this, he uses extra care and patience with her to coax her through the process. However, what goes in must eventually come out, and Jim is trying to teach Kelly a lesson as well as make sure she is fit for anal play.

  
            "Kellly.  We agreed I'm handlin' this, right?  Your job is to relax by takin' slow, calmin' breaths, and let me see to the details.  Don't worry about things you can't control.  I'm gonna take real good care of you.  I promise."
            Oh God, no.  Please don't tell me he means what I think he means.  "But, Sir--"
             He shook his head and put a finger over her lips.  "Hush now.  That's enough."
            "Everything's ready, Jim.  Anytime," George said from somewhere behind Kelly.
            Jim gave a nod.  "Thanks, George.  "Okay, darlin'.  You feelin' any pain right now?
            She shook her head, but tears were falling.  He wasn't going to let her do this in private.  He was going to insist on remaining with her while she emptied her bowels, but she didn't know why.  Aware of both men working to release her restraints, Kelly inhaled sharply as a strong cramp tore through her.


Kelly has a past she's not willing to share with anyone, and enemas are a hard limit for her. Unfortunately, she adamantly refuses to say why, so Jim considers the procedure a necessity to ensure his new sub isn't concealing something that could make anal play dangerous for her. Though Jim's been trained and knows what to look for, withholding valuable information from a Dom is never a wise course of action for a sub to take, and this is a lesson in obedience.

Frisky Friday - 6/26/15 - Acting Lessons - Trying to make the best of a bad situation #KissMeKate #DD


Peter loved Kate with all his being, but that didn't mean he'd tolerate an ultimatum from her.

Welcome to another offering for Frisky Friday, where we hope you're getting as excited about the weekend as we are.

My submission for this week is from my 5th book, Acting Lessons.

 He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.


In this scene, which occurs at the beginning of Chapter Four, Peter Thorton is attempting to get his wife ready for a trip to a college camp ground in upper New York, where they will appear together in a summer stock production of "Kiss Me Kate." Kate has agreed to help Peter teach the drama students who have auditioned and been selected personally by him for the course he is teaching. Though Kate isn't sure she can trust Peter with her heart again, since she believes he's been unfaithful to her, she's never stopped loving him. And despite having Domestic Discipline originally play a part in their marriage, their last two years together had them living like polite strangers sharing the same house.

Now, however, they are temporarily reconciled and Kate has agreed to appear with Peter in a college summer stock production of Kiss Me Kate. She only hopes she isn't making a huge mistake.


              A trip that should have taken no more than seven hours--tops--ended up taking twelve with Kate navigating.  Directions were definitely not her strong suit, and it certainly didn't help when she held the map turned the wrong way.
            After she had them reversing direction for the third time, Peter regarded her with a wry expression.  "Sorry, darling, but you had your final strike with that detour.  I'm downloading a GPS app to my phone now."
            Kate sighed and folded the map stretched across her lap.  "I warned you I wasn't very good at this."  When he didn't respond, she gazed out the window.  "Well at least the countryside is pretty and it's a beautiful day."
            "True," Peter conceded, attempting to get a signal on his phone.  "Reception up here isn't looking so good though."
            Kate leaned over to peer at his coverage.  "Two bars.  Is that enough?"
            "Should be.  Although I don't think I'll attempt playing "Words with Friends" up here."  A disembodied female voice said, "Enter your destination."
            Peter entered the address, and the program directed them to take a "U-Turn."
            He cast another accusing mock-glower at Kate, but followed the directions and they reached the gravel road leading to the camp close to six o'clock.
            When Peter parked before a building that looked to Kate like a log cabin, she wrinkled her nose.  Camping wasn't high on her list of favorite activities.


Though Kate is putting on a good face, the sight of the camp where they'll be performing fills her with dread. Her idea of roughing it is staying at a three star hotel, and she begins to doubt their accommodations would rate any stars at all.

#MFRWHooks - 6/24/15 - A Simple Misunderstanding - In legal name only #DD #SpankingRomance


It's Book Hooks Wednesday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing another excerpt from my new spanking romance in the Corbin's Bend series, A Simple Misunderstanding.  It's sequel, Past Interference is included in the Love in the Rockies anthology.

He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.


In this scene, which occurs near the beginning of Chapter Six, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is asleep in intensive care, recovering from surgery after she's been attacked by her husband.  Gerald Douglas (Jerry), who feels responsible for Elly's condition, has remained posted at her bedside in ICU when his friend Brent calls to inform him he called Elly's husband to let him know where she was. Though Jerry understands Brent's reasoning, he wants Elly safe. So, after she's spent her first night in the hospital, he checks in with Elly's nurse to get an update on her condition, then makes sure the hospital is on the watch for Elly's abusive husband.


Jerry started to walk back to Elly’s bedside when Karen asked, “Are you Jerry Douglas?” He stopped and turned. “Yes, I am. Why?”
“She asked about you, too. I think she’ll be relieved you’re back.”
He nodded. “Do you have a notation in your records regarding Arthur Benson?”
“Her husband?”
“Only in a legal sense.”
She smiled. “We’ve been told it would be in our patient’s best interests not to let him visit her quite yet. Is he responsible?”
“Between you and me, yes he is, even if it was an accident, which I don’t think it was.”
“I understand,” Karen replied. “We’ll do our best, Dr. Douglas. Thank you.”
“Thank you,” he echoed back, and he meant it sincerely.

 

Jerry is determined to protect Elly from Arthur, but he needs help to ensure Elly remains safe.



M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.

Guest Post - 6/23/15 - "Reunion" by Maggie Ryan - #AgePlay #Victorian

Today I have Maggie Ryan joining us to share an excerpt from her latest in her successful Hunter's Ridge series. The novels focus on twin sisters who have both married a man who wants to be husband as well as a papa to his darling wife. Though the thought of having my every need and desire met and catered to sounds fun, I'm a private person who would not want to share what I consider to be a private relationship with strangers in a public setting. However, papas in age play stories often want to display their relationship with their little one, whether they are married or not. The excerpt I'm sharing today highlights this in a subtle way. Lord Edward Wintercrest is attempting to prove a point to his wife, and he's doing it in a very public way.



Excerpt:

"Do you not wish to eat any cake?" Edward asked, transferring the fork to his own mouth. "I assure you it's quite delicious." He ate another large bite.
"I can eat by myself, Papa," she whispered, the closeness of other diners making her afraid they'd hear her words.
He didn't speak; simply lifted his eyes to hers as he took another bite. The cake was almost gone as he continued to enjoy it, and she squirmed on her chair. Louisa finally nodded, "Please, Papa, may I have a bite?"
A forkful was presented to her mouth and she took the bite. It was delicious, and when no outcry of improper table manners was screeched by the other diners, she accepted another. Edward bent forward and wiped her mouth, where a bit of icing clung to one corner. Before sitting back, he spoke softly. "Who are you?"
Confused at the question, she shook her head. "You know I'm Louisa."
"Your full name, please."
"Um, Lady Louisa Michelle Wintercrest."
"And who am I to you?" he asked.
"Lord Edward Wintercrest, my husband and my Papa."
"Are you ashamed of either your roles or mine?"
"No, Papa, I'm not ashamed. I just—no, Papa, I'm proud to belong to you."
Nodding, he sat back and gestured with his hand. "These people are strangers, Louisa. They do not know you, nor do they care about you. I suggest you remember who does care, and who has promised to take care of you in all ways. It hurts me to think the woman I love is embarrassed when her Papa wishes to share a treat."
"I'm sorry," she said, feeling properly chastised. She had a chance to prove her words when he produced a bottle from his pocket and asked their server to fill it with milk. Though the woman slid her eyes to where Louisa was sitting, she didn't question the request, only nodding to Edward.
Louisa sat and waited while her Papa enjoyed a snifter of brandy. True to his word, no one was paying them any mind. Other than a few glances and a few nods, the others had their own lives to lead and their own conversations to hold. When the woman returned with the bottle, he thanked her and finished his drink. 



Blurb:

In this, the third book of the best-selling Hunter’s Ridge series, twin sisters, Louisa and Lucy, are looking forward to reuniting after several months apart. Though they correspond regularly, letters are nothing compared to being together, sharing their lives, and whispering their secrets to one another.

Anticipation has caused both to be naughtier than usual—but their husbands, who are also very strict Papas, have no hesitation in reminding them what happens when their Little brides test the rules.

After a very educational evening visit to Miss Eleanor Summers' school, Louisa’s eyes are opened to what might be if she continues her bratty ways—and her attitude is quickly adjusted. Lord Edward Wintercrest has not only taken possession of an intriguing box from Eleanor to share with his best friend and Lucy’s Papa, Lord Lucas Huntington, he has also ensured that the long carriage ride to Hunter’s Ridge will offer his precious little lady comfort and distraction from boredom.

Lucas’ family is excited about the upcoming visit as they prepare for the holidays and the final ball of the season. And Lord Stefan Northbridge is not one to sit idly aside when there is a chance to do a bit of matchmaking. Will Franny be able to trust another suitor after her narrow escape from the clutches of Lord Drakemore?

Is Ettie ready to put away her childhood toys as she enters the grown-up world, or is she looking for a man far more like her brother than Lucas realizes?

Only a few things are certain: no matter what the future holds for the others at Hunter’s Ridge, both Lucy and Louisa will continue to be cherished and coddled by their husbands—and their Papas will always be there to remind them of their vows to submit. With their unwavering love for these precious women, and unfaltering attention to their backsides whenever they step out of line, this reunion exceeds both sisters' expectations.


Once again, Maggie Ryan, the queen of Victorian ageplay erotica, combines love, friendship, humor, and delicious scenes of discipline and lust to tell a story that is as heartwarming as it is sexy.



From the Author:

I have been writing stories as long as I can remember. I am an author with Blushing Books. I enjoy writing both contemporary erotica as well as historical books set in ages past. I love developing characters that are able to tell their own stories. My heroines are multi-faceted women who are strong, intelligent and capable in their own right but find a deep need to share their lives with those strong, sexy and dominant alpha males that capture their hearts. My heros recognize the gift of submission for the gift it is, loving and protecting the women that offer that gift. I enjoy sweet, romantic stories with just a taste of domestic discipline as well as one that explore the harsher D/S lifestyle. I also enjoy writing age-play stories set both in Victorian era where women didn't have a great deal of power in their lives as well as in today's present time where women still find their happiness is greatly enhanced in offering the gift of submission. My hope is that you settle back in your favorite chair and allow my books to entertain you and let you escape into another world.

Please feel free to contact me at: maggie.ryan.writes@gmail.com as I'd love to hear from you.

I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a review on Amazon as well as reviews not only help inform other potential readers about books that you have enjoyed, they serve to help me strive to become a better writer. I so appreciate every reader and wish you Happy Reading!

#SPeekSunday - 6/21/15 - Past Intereference - Elly takes some sensible precautions #CorbinsBend #Romance


It's Sneak Peek Sunday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing an excerpt from my new spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding. Past Interference is part of the Corbin's Bend Valentine's Day collection "Love in the Rockies," and is not being sold separately.

What she needed was the opposite of what she wanted.


In this scene, which occurs near the beginning of Chapter Three, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is six days away from getting married again, and her doubts are eating her alive.  After suffering through a bout of stress-related migraines, she's finally gotten up enough courage to tell her husband-to-be that she's not sure she wants to get married.  Jerry knows Elly is nervous, but believed he'd managed to convince her he is nothing at all like her first husband, Arthur, who abused her.  Unfortunately, when he realizes Elly  still thinks he will turn into an abusive monster once they're married, despite all his gentle reassurances, his hurt pride causes him to snap at her in anger before he returns to his vet clinic next door. Elly realizes she's made a serious mistake, but has no idea how to fix things between them, so she decides to go for a walk, hoping the crisp, winter air will help clear her head. As she tromps through the Colorado snow, her tiny toy poodle suddenly goes on guard.


When they returned to the house, Jerry took Elly by the hand and led her up to his loft bedroom. She couldn’t seem to stop trembling, so he slowly undressed her, taking care to kiss every patch of skin he uncovered until Elly trembled for an entirely different reason. He treated her with a gentle reverence until she pressed her body to his and demanded he take her instead.
Passion flared between them as Jerry gave Elly everything she desired and more. She ached to feel his possession, so with few preliminaries he staked his claim and rode her until they were both exhausted and replete. Their lovemaking had been more animalistic than romantic that afternoon, partly because she’d been threatened and like a true alpha male, Jerry wanted to leave his mark of possession, and partly because she needed him to reassure her his love hadn’t been tarnished by her husband’s dark nature.
Now, however, her divorce was final and Arthur had reportedly moved back east. After trying a few times to contact her, he did manage to express regret for causing her miscarriage through their lawyers, but even if he crawled over a field of broken glass, Arthur Benson would never be welcomed back into Corbin’s Bend, so there was little reason for him to remain in Colorado.
Needing to clear her brain, Elly chose to wander off the well-traveled path and traipse through the woods. Perhaps the bracing air and winter’s natural beauty would remove enough of the cobwebs so she could think. Maybe she could freeze her headache away.
A cluster of pine trees reminded her of Christmas and Jerry’s proposal, so she stopped to enjoy the tangy scent as she gave the dogs enough lead to allow them to do some sniffing. Not wanting to lose either of them, she didn’t remove their leads, but let them play out to the end of their lines.
Muffin had just discovered a pine cone in need of a good pouncing, when she jerked her head up with her ears twitching and let out a soft, but menacing growl. Elly recognized the sound to mean someone unfriendly was approaching and went on immediate alert. Without thought or hesitation, she reeled Muffin in close to her, then reached into her coat and pressed the one button on her cell phone. Putting her thumb over the earpiece, in an effort to muffle any sound from the person answering, she secured the device inside her pocket so the mouthpiece cleared its edge. Whoever picked up might be able to hear her without the approaching person’s knowledge.

 

Elly, realizing she may have made a huge mistake with Jerry, takes a walk to clear her head and her thoughts when her poodle reacts as though danger lurks nearby. 



M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Valentine's Day in Corbin's Bend.  As Elly Benson readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage.

Though she's lived with Jerry Douglas for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, Elly's first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, until the day she vowed to love, honor and obey him.  The lessons she's learned from the past make her doubt she can ever find happiness in the future.
