Even good deeds can get you punished
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.
Now, Christmas and New Year's are over and Kelly feels a little depressed. Jim was due home any minute when he calls to tell her he'll be late. Disappointed, she tells him she'll wait up for him, but isn't all that surprised when he puts his foot down. Though Kelly loves his dominance, she also wants to greet him when he gets home, so she presses a little more to get her way, causing him to step down even harder. He informs her there'll be painful consequences if she ignores his order.
"Seems to me you'd recall what happens when you don't heed your Dom's instructions properly. And I'm worried about you. You've been tossin' and turnin' more than usual the past couple of nights, so I want you in bed early tonight. What're you plannin' for dinner?"
Since Jim normally did the cooking for them, and Kelly didn't like eating alone, she shrugged. Realizing he wouldn't appreciate the gesture if he'd seen it, she added, "I don't have much of an appetite, so maybe some tea and toast."
"Tea and toast's not dinner, Kelly. It's a snack. We've got leftover chicken in the fridge. Make yourself a sandwich at least."
"After you eat, you may watch TV or listen to music, but from bed, not the livin' room. Lights out no later than nine, young lady. Hear me?"
"Yes, Sir," she answered quietly. Despite the small thrill his dominant stance aroused within her, his absence left an aching void. And sometimes listening and obeying were two entirely different things.
"That's the response I wanted. I gotta go. You sure you're all right, darlin'? You're soundin' a bit off."
"I'm fine. I just miss you."
"Miss you, too. Now, fix yourself a sandwich, and get into bed. That's an order."
Kelly knows Jim only wants what's best for her, but pregnancy hasn't turned her into an invalid. With the holidays over, and the fact he'll be home late, she's feeling antsy. Though she understands his work as a detective is important to the community as well as him, after spending nearly two weeks in each other's company, she misses having him around, even if it's only to keep her in line.
Note about the characters in this story:
Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.
So, if you want to know how their sometimes stormy relationship started, they first appeared in Arrested by Love as secondary characters, but like all good primary characters insisted on their own story, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with a new third book, entitled Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Though the newest book in the series, Learning to be Little begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, it then takes the reader into Kelly's past, where she shares her introduction to age play and BDSM with Graham White in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.
