It was early. The wasn't up yet but I was. The coffee was brewing and Dragon had finished his breakfast. He had a few minutes before he had to leave for work. Not long.
Just enough time to show his wife how much loves her. The hall way never seemed so long. His hand rested firmly on my back. Guiding me, as always. In the bedroom he placed my hands on the cedar chest at the foot of the bed and retrieved the paddle from its hiding place. He lifted he hem of my night shirt and showed me just how much he loves me.
The paddle fell softly at first. Leaving behind only a small sting. Not pleasant but there. The tempo increased slightly. Then he wrapped his arm around me, holding me firmly in place. The paddling continued at the same pace. Then he asked me if I was ready.
Holding me still.
Asking if I am ready?
Are you kidding? I know what is coming when he does that.
I guess I should be happy it wasn't a punishment. I did earn one last night. (that is a story for another time) It was simply a reconnection. Starting the day off right.
Latter in the day, after a session with the step and a hot shower I felt the sting. After a workout and shower, I like to sit back and relax for a few minutes. My backside started stinging. WOW. It felt like he had just given me the swats. OWCH.
Who needs a good memory when Dragon has his paddle? He made sure I didn't have to work very hard to remember those swats. He left a lasting impression on my backside.
