Arethusa said, Oh, Master. I’m sorry, I’m so sorry, Master. I –
No, it’s over, darling. And you were brave and good. And your – the fault’s forgotten. You’ve paid for it, the slate’s clean and you’re a good girl again. I’ll never mention it again.
[I was telling the truth. I’ve genuinely forgotten what the fault was that led to the stripes in this picture. It would be something that I felt harmed her interests, and that I’d warned her about. And that she’d repeated anyway. It’d be laziness or carelessness, because she doesn’t wilfully disobey.]
But I hate disappointing you. I feel … [She shook her head, still on all fours on our bed.]
Shhhh, love. You’re a good girl. Wonderful fucking girl. You’re a good girl with a sore arse, right now. But I do know how wonderful you are. I know that I love you, little one.
[Arethusa isn’t a brat. She likes to be good. The worst thing about being punished, for her, isn’t the pain, which happens often enough for purely sexual reasons, but having to feel bad because she’d disappointed her master and lover.]
I know that too. And I love you, Master. But I let you down.
Here. Relax, ‘thuse. You’re the world to me. And …
Ahh… Yeah, yes…
[And that’s when I took this photo, left-handed. Just before I put my right thumb where any person of sense, in love with the woman on that bed and wanting her to feel good, would put their thumb. And hold her firmly and begin to stroke, and then pump. There was no more conversation for some time, and no more talk about feeling guilty. Eventually, cuddled in spoon position on the bed, we slept the rest of the afternoon away.]
Nice way to soothe the pain.
The only way, I think. Because even when it’s punishment and not sex, in terms of motivation, it’s still hot as hell. No way of avoiding that. Thank fuck.
A heartwarming tale (truly – I finished reading and “awww”ed aloud) and hot picture!
Sinfully intense…thanks so much for sharing!
That is one seriously good picture and the thought of the thumb then being placed makes it even better.
The words make the picture so much stronger. Gorgeous post!
Fantastic shot and I love the words attached to it. So much love for spooning x
Oh this is sublime, words and image is perfect harmony
Oh goodness . . . wonderful !!!

This is so beautiful and intense.
This is beautiful. I can relate to this post …its the disappointment that hurts so much more than the physical pain.
