NSFW Teaser from Dax
“Stop! Stop right now! Stop it!” Paisley’s screams fell on deaf ears. “You’re hurting me! Please, stop!” her begging continued.
“I mean it! You can’t do this to me! It hurts too much! You have to stop!”
Detective Dax Allard merely chuckled as his captive tried to get away from him, squirming as violently as she could over his knees.
With a swift toss of his right leg over her two flailing limbs, and an especially harsh swat to her sit spot, he settled her back down. Moving forward slightly, Paisley Hall’s shapely bottom rose in the air, giving him better access to the crease where her bottom met her legs.
“That’s enough, Paisley Anne. Take your spanking like the good girl you are.”
Targeting the sensitive skin of her upper thighs, his hand fell unrelenting, despite her pleas for mercy. “If we didn’t both know how badly you needed this spanking, Sweet Pea, I might have stopped already. You put up such a good fight.”
His heart ached more than the sting in his palm as he paddled her behind. Listening closely for her safeword, he gave Paisley what she needed, what she came to him for. Once a week, she showed up at his house, sometimes in little space, sometimes not. Regardless of her headspace, she needed her weekly spanking. The session acted to both clear her conscience and give her an emotional release.
Twenty minutes before, she’d sat across from him and spilled her guts, confessing all the transgressions she’d committed. Then, as he’d done every week for the last six months, he’d sent her to the corner to think about her misdeeds.
She’d stand there with her pants and underwear around her ankles, her hands folded neatly on her head. The picture of submission.
He’d spent the last six months getting to know her. He watched as she took the emotional hardships of the rest of the world on her shoulders day after day. As a therapist, she helped people, including his best friend, work through their problems before going home to an empty house at night. Dax admired Paisley’s big side. She worked hard to grow a successful business.
They’d become play partners at The Citadel after having been introduced by several mutual friends. Dax’s best friends were Daddies or Dominants of Paisley’s girlfriends; they often spent time together socially. Dax recognized Paisley as a little right off the bat, but neither of them were in a place where they could pursue a relationship. She told him how she was a little without a Daddy of her own, and how she watched her friends pair off, one couple after another. He was proud of her for the positive attitude she kept, she never complained, never let jealousy or ugliness in. Instead, she’d approached him with a friends-with-spanking-benefits proposal. He would Daddy her one afternoon a week to help fulfill her unmet needs.
At the time of their arrangement, Dax was healing from a breakup with a toxic ex-girlfriend, and Paisley wanted to set up her new office and as she’d told him several times in the last half a year, she wanted to establish herself in town before complicating her life with a relationship.
Instead of a committed, monogamous relationship they found in each other a safe place to have their needs met. The Dungeon at The Citadel offered a perfect location for their sessions. Once a week, they’d meet and negotiate a scene. Dax would have an hour to play Daddy with a little, and Paisley would get the much sought after release of a good spanking, tears and all. Jay ran The Citadel with an iron fist. Dungeon monitors, safe words, yearly retraining sessions, and all. There couldn’t be a safer place for them. To top it off, after each session, their friends would be on the other side of the door to hang out with.
However, after a couple of months of playing together at The Citadel, they’d grown tired of the buzzing bright lights and coldness of the private rooms. Their friends meant well but they started to pressure them, especially the women, wanting to set them up on dates, trying to manipulate them into seeing each other more.
Together they made the decision to move their sessions to his house on Sunday afternoons away from the all-seeing eyes of the littles.
The first Sunday after, they sat down and agreed on a few stipulations moving forward.
They’d keep feelings out of it.
It would be a strictly platonic situation.
Friends with spanking benefits.
If either of them started to catch feelings for the other, they’d talk about it and end their relationship. Their friendship was clearly prioritized over their sessions.
Dax was honored to give Paisley a safe space to let her little side out, even if it lasted only an hour a week. He could physically see the weight being lifted off of her after a good, hard, cathartic spanking. Often he found himself biting his tongue when she’d confess her misdeeds. When he became her Daddy, he’d set rules for her to keep her from committing several of the same mistakes week after week and help her to stop beating herself up. But he’d reminded himself often he wasn’t her Daddy. They promised each other it wouldn’t be more; it wouldn’t go past this agreement.
Until a week ago. The Fifth Anniversary Party at The Citadel. His hand landed a real discipline spanking on her behind. As brief as it might have been, they both felt the difference.
It was time he moved forward with his plan. His feelings were no longer of the friends with benefits variety. He wanted Paisley as his little and he needed to know if she wanted the same. For the first time since they’d started their arrangement, he spanked her over his knee. The intimacy of the position was not lost on either of them.
He smiled, knowing she couldn’t see it, at her theatrics. Little Paisley could put on a show, especially during a spanking. It made him feel good, knowing she trusted him enough to be her authentic self around him.
He raised his palm and brought it sharply down on her untouched upper thighs. The quick peppering against the sensitive skin worked to settle her down. After a dozen hard targeted swats, she collapsed over his thighs, her breath coming in little gasps. His smarting palm rested on the heat radiating from her behind.
“Shhhh. It’s okay, Paisley. All done, now, Sweet Pea.” He rubbed small circles on her back as she cried over his knees. Slowly, he released her trapped legs and sit her up, pulling her into his arms. Cuddling her against his chest, he ran his fingers through her hair and kissed her forehead softly. “I’m proud of you. You took your spanking so well, didn’t you?”
Every Sunday he said those words to her. And every Sunday she would look up at him with her big brown eyes, brimming with tears and stammer back, “yes, Sir,” making his heart clench.
This Sunday, his heart stopped beating altogether at the sound of the words falling from her sweet lips.
