The Bumhampton Chronicles: Chapter 6 (Part 30)

“Before you—we—commence flogging Ruby,” he said with grave intent, “I wish a moment of privacy.” Both Mrs. Cleanknockers and Miss Frothinglips acquiesced and departed. The soft thud of the tufted leather paneled door seemed portentous. I craned my head. “Do not strain, dear one.” Mr. Jones-Smyth knelt on a knee so that our eyes were level. “I would understand your confusion, Ruby, and we have much to discuss, but I crave you listen.” I widened my eyes and nodded. “We have only short acquaintance, yet I feel such comfort and respect for you. Ruby, will you marry me?”

            • *tsk-tsk* And they say that men are cruel for spanking their ladies. I say, it’s the other way around. The Dom deserves sympathy for having to put his own needs aside in order to take care of naughty behavior. Plus, going to bed with a sore hand? Not fun at all. 😉

    • Thanks missy, no sense drawing out the ordeal… besides, it seems like ages ago that they met. Love at first sight and all that, although, I think Mr. Jones-Smyth is more enamored of his business than Ruby at this point.
