Sometimes you have to break the rules to get what you need.
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 an excerpt from my new spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interference, the sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding. It used to be available only as part of the Love in the Rockies anthology, but is now being sold as a single release.
In this scene, which occurs in Chapter Five, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has made more than a few mistakes, one of which results in her throat being injured when she experiences another run in with her ex-husband. Not permitted to talk until the doctor gives her permission, Elly is reduced to communicating with a white board. With her wedding to Jerry scheduled to take place in three days, Elly refuses to spend one more night in the guest bedroom.
Knowing Jerry will do nothing to address their issues until after she's been cleared by their physician, Elly decides to confront the matter the only way she knows how. Head on. Jerry gives Elly a chance to avoid the inevitable by ordering her to pick up her board one last time, but she stubbornly refuses to comply, so he makes good on his promise. When she finally gives in, Jerry wants to make sure she understands he's serious about her health, and that further disobedience will only get her in worse trouble. So, after he finishes administering her spanking, he tells her she deliberately sought to make him angry and she succeeded, so without further ado he grabs her arm and orders her to follow him to the corner where he places both hands on her head and orders her nose to the wall. However, when Elly appears more distressed than usual by his discipline, Jerry does what he can to reassure her.
“Good,” Jerry whispered. “Much Better. Deep breaths, brat. I’m here, and I don’t intend to go anywhere until you’re calmer.”
Unable to help herself, Elly turned from the corner and pressed against him, seeking his reassurance. Rather than scold her for breaking position, he obliged her by talking gently as he rubbed her back and shoulders. “Shh. You’re safe, sweetie, but I want you to think about what you did and what you hoped to gain. We’re not going to talk about Monday until Dr. Devon gives you permission to use your voice. I’ve told you that many times already. So, pushing and prodding me will only get you in trouble.” He hugged her close. “I love you, Elly, but I’m not always happy about the decisions you make. Nod if you understand.”
She nodded again. “Good,” he murmured, drawing her even closer.
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.
