Here is an
earlier chapter from our WIP “The Author’s Friends”.Just to set this scene up, Michael and Carla were involved in the beginnings of a DD relationship, but he'd been worried that she wanted to be the one in control.That definitely wasn't working for him and he
decided to investigate further. Naturally, there was no stone left unturned.He is a therapist, after all.
Michael patiently waited for Carla at
their favorite Italian restaurant.It
was a popular BYOB family-owned establishment which became extremely crowded on
the weekends.Since they lived in the
neighborhood, Michael and Carla liked to meet there in the middle of the week
On that particular day, he sent her a
text during lunch and asked if she would be able to meet at 6:30 after
work.She agreed, but wanted to know if
he could stop at home first to let Wally out and pick up a bottle of wine,
since she didn’t want to be late.That
was the plan.The time was 6:50 when
Michael poured himself a glass of cabernet, and caught a glimpse of her rushing
through the door.
“I’m so sorry, Michael.You have no idea what kind of day I had …”
His lips curled up at the sides as he
reached for the bottle of wine to pour her a glass.
“Cheers.”After they finished their “customary clink”, she watched an amused
expression form on his face.
“Are you angry that I’m late, Michael?”
she asked putting her lips to the glass.
“I would say more curious than angry,
Carla.I’m not sure if you’re merely
looking for attention or really enjoying the spankings.You’re not a ‘pain slut’ are you, my dear?”
“Please keep your voice down; we’re in a
public place,” she whispered picking up the menu to hide her mortified reaction.
“I don’t think my voice is capable of
being softer, and you haven’t answered my question.” Michael tapped his fingers
on the table.
Carla lowered her menu and rolled her
eyes.“No, I’m not a ‘pain slut’.But do we really have to talk about this
“Well, if you hadn’t been twenty minutes
late, the subject wouldn’t have come up at all, my love,” he said tipping her
chin up with one finger.
“Okay, sometimes I do enjoy getting a
rise out of you.I admit it.But then there are times like today, when I
was just running late.Okay?”Carla picked the menu back up and reached for
her glass of wine.
“No, it’s not okay, young lady.You agreed to our DD relationship, but are
constantly attempting to be the one in control.I warned you about topping from the bottom; you know I don’t like it.”
“I apologize, Michael; believe me I’m not
doing it ‘underhandedly’.Let’s have a
nice dinner and share a bottle of wine.When we get home, you can slide my panties down to my knees and position
me over your lap …”
“There you go again.” He smiled and
angled his head to the side.
“Is it a crime that I like to be
“No, I don’t believe it is. I
just want to be the one who controls those delicious punishments you receive.”
“I know, but it’s hard for me to change
roles when we get home.Wait … what are
you thinking about?You have an odd look
on your face...”
“Maybe we need a way to re-direct your
attitude when you come home at the end of the day; perhaps a change in wardrobe
“Well, I’m going to let that be your
kinky idea; you're much more creative
that I am.By the way, how did your
meeting with Dr. Stein go?”
“We really didn’t get into much.But I was thinking that maybe you should be
included next time; it might help you understand my need for dominance.I’ll speak with Jason, and give you some
available times to choose from.”
“I'll be there - you know
“Good, let’s order our dinner; the
sooner we eat, the quicker that beautiful bare ass of yours can be spanked.” He
grinned and signaled the wait staff.
“Yes, sir.” Her sigh was long and
Michael followed Carla home in his car
and lovingly patted her behind as they entered the house.“This business suit of yours needs to come
off immediately.Please change into a long
sleeve shirt and cotton panties; I’ll be waiting for you on the couch in the
With a rebellious look on her face, she
turned around and placed a hand on her hip.
He looked at his watch and spoke
softly.“Right now, please.”
“Have you forgotten what season it
is?How about flannel pajama pants?”
“How about you do as you’re told,
“Peanut?Oh my God, you can’t be serious …”
“It works for Richard and Dana.” He
crossed his arms and looked at his watch again. “Should I start counting?”
Carla shook her head and headed for the
stairs.“Jesus, I’m how old?”
“You’re old enough to stand in the corner
with a very red behind.” His demeanor was gentle, but his arms stayed crossed as
he watched her disappear upstairs to change.
He made himself comfortable on their
sienna “butter” leather sectional couch, and intently considered a few options
of how to approach the impending scene with his disobedient, strong-willed
Five minutes later, Carla stood in the
doorway of the room waiting for directions.Michael didn’t disappoint and motioned with his fingers for her to stand
in the corner.Keeping her eyes cast
downward, she walked slowly to assume a position she was familiar with from
“Lower your panties to your thighs,
Carla.” His tone was smooth and low.
She shook her head no in defiance.
Michael sighed and stood upright.He didn’t need to speak; she could hear him
stand.If he wanted her panties down,
damn it, he could bloody well take them down himself.Standing behind her, he applied a firm hand
to her soft backside; the sound echoed through the large room.
“Slide them down, Carla.This is the last time I’m going to ask, and
if I have to do it myself…”
He didn’t need to finish the
sentence.She slowly lowered her
panties, placed her nose in the corner and seductively pushed her bottom out.
Michael put his hand around her tummy for
leverage and rubbed each cheek lovingly, before giving her a sound
spanking.He covered every inch of her
lovely bottom with his large hand and repeated the process twice.Eyes brimming with tears, she peered over her
shoulder at him.There was something
about the way they looked at each other, that stopped the spanking abruptly.She put her arms around his neck as he lifted
her in the air and made his way over to the couch.Gingerly, he placed her sore, bare bottom
down in his lap and kissed her forehead softly.
“Please talk to me.”
Carla paused dramatically and looked up
at him with blurry vision.“Do we really
have to discuss this?It’s so embarrassing.”
It was obvious to him how content she
was.“Why do you like to be
spanked?I need to know.”
She shrugged and wiped her eyes with the
back of her hand.“It makes me feel
loved, like a little kid.I get tired of
always being in charge.”
“Yet, you have a hard time not being in control, don’t you?”
She looked up at him; the tears again
welled in her eyes.“I don’t always
want to; sometimes I just can’t stop, Michael.”
“You had an opportunity to have a DD
relationship with Richard when you were younger, and passed it up.I’ve wondered about that.”
“Richard was such a good friend; he was
like an older brother to me.The
discipline aspect intrigued me, but I was afraid of the relationship not
working out.Making new friends was
definitely not my strong suit; I have a tendency to be bossy.”Michael tried not to smile rocking her in his
“I know baby, I know.” He gently combed
her wavy blonde hair with his fingers.
She shook her head and squeezed her eyes.“This isn’t fair to you, Michael; my
personality is not what you want…”
His serene, handsome smile was just what
she needed.“What I want is for us to work together; this relationship is not just
about one of us.I love that you are a
strong woman; we just need to make a few adjustments.Until we decide otherwise, you will come home
from work at the end of the day and change into your pajamas, young lady.Your responsibilities will end when you walk
through that door, and I will be in
charge.Give me any trouble, and you
will find it very difficult to sit down.”
She nestled her face into his warm, thick
neck and nodded.
“Carla, are you sure this is what you want?”
“Yes, Dr. Cohen … sir.”
“That’s my girl.” His eyes twinkled.
