Kismet of Submission: Episode 21

Audible only to the parties involved, there is the slightest of whistles as the paddle compresses the air on the way to impact. It’s Tamara’s only warning as the leather surface cracks upon her bottom with a loud retort.

It hurts.

The second and third strikes follow in quick succession. A pause: three more on the other cheek. She hisses and bounces on her toes in a vain effort to ease the stinging burn. In her mind she compares the erotic paddling she received yesterday evening. Even the hundred spanks then didn’t equal the pain of the six blows thus far. Somehow though, the pain is welcome, fitting even. The sentence, you deserve this, echoes with the continuing paddling.

So how do you feel about this? Does Sir have the right to punish Tamara? Are you troubled by the concept of an adult woman bending over and receiving a hard, bare-bottom paddling even when she agreed? Is Sir a predator after all, and cunningly taking advantage of an abused victim? Or, does he have the obligation to take care of Tamara and keep her safe, even if that means frequent spankings and other punishments? There is no right answer that fits every situation. I guess we’ll just have to continue watching and hoping.

The paddle keeps rising and falling like a metronome. To Tamara it seems endless, and the pain has mutated into a searing heat that has spread throughout her body. She can only dip and straighten her knees, keening softly while painted fingernails dig into the hard seat cushion with each sharp smack. Panting through her mouth, it takes her a moment to realize the spanking has ceased.

She jumps slightly feeling his cool hand stroke her hot flesh.

‘Six more, Tamara.’

She lets out an involuntary moan.

‘Actually. Move back a bit and grab your ankles. Yes, like that, no, a little wider. All the way down. Don’t let go, or the blow doesn’t count.’


‘One, Sir!’ Tamara yelps as the hardest spank yet rocks her torso forward.


‘Two, Sir!’


‘Three, Sir!’


‘Four-Five, Sir!’ she yells, holding on with white-knuckled grip.


The sixth and final paddle swing is even harder and lands right at the junction of thighs and bottom crease.

Tamara cries out. ‘SIX, SIR!’

The pain is agonizing but quickly turns into an aching soreness. She stays bent over, legs quivering jelly-like and tears splashing on her feet until Sir gives her verbal release to move.

Stumbling to the bed, she bends over again, sniffling and wiping her eyes as she lies on her stomach.

‘Here,’ Sir speaks quietly handing her a box of tissues.

Blowing her nose, Tamara gasps softly when she feels smooth lotion being smeared over her sore bottom.

‘This will help cool the burn, but you’ll feel this spanking the rest of the morning.’

‘Thank you, Sir.’

‘You’re welcome.’ He finishes and rubs the excess over his hands. ‘Sit up.’

‘I don’t want to.’

‘I know, but you’re going to do it anyway.’


‘Because you need your coffee and sugar fix and, I said so.’

Tamara perches on the very edge of the mattress, squirming and winching trying to find the least punished posterior place. ‘Ow! My poor butt hurts.’

Sir drags the chair closer, sits down and sets the tray next to Tamara. ‘Drink up and eat a pastry. We need to get going in a few. I want to stop for a real breakfast on the way over to the convention center.’

She sips the still hot coffee and chews up the cinnamon roll with steady bites. Sir’s hand never leaves her knee, except to travel further up her thigh and cross over to the other leg. Swallowing the last of the sticky treat, she drains the cup and puts it down. ‘I’m done.’

‘Good. Let me clear out the bathroom and we’re ready to checkout. Well, I’m ready to checkout, you’re not a registered guest.’

‘Just your overnight fling.’

‘Do you want another spanking, Tamara?’

‘No, Sir!’ she bolts to her feet grabbing her sore bottom. ‘What did I say?’

He taps the tip of her nose. ‘No running yourself down, remember? The punishment is over, no recriminations, no storing up grudges and slights to use decades from now.’ Tilting up her chin, he leans down and kisses her, long and slow, parting her lips with his tongue and delving into her fragrant mouth. ‘Cinnamon and icing, yum.’

Tamara seizes his body in a fierce hug. Wild emotions wash over her, many of them extremely scary and unfamiliar. All she knows is that she’s going to try her hardest to live up to his vision of her, even if it means regular spankings.

‘It’s over, Tamara.’

Her response is fraught with feeling. ‘I know, Sir. I know. Please be patient with me when I screw up. It’s not directed at you.’

‘I know that too. It doesn’t mean you’re off the hook though if I feel you are being deliberately harmful to yourself or others. If this afternoon, we decide to stay together, there will be rules to follow and consequences of breaking those rules. I want to be very clear on that point.’

She steps back and takes hold of his hands. With a voice only slightly shaky, she looks directly in his eyes and states, ‘I want—I need—to change my life, Sir. I am only being honest when I say I don’t like myself very much, and sometimes hate and loathe the person I am today. I can understand intellectually the “whys” and “hows” of what made me paranoid and bitter, but if, if, you truly believe submission to you will help me become a better person, then I am willing to submit to your rules and accept any punishments.’

Sir lifts their entwined fingers to his lips and kisses her right knuckles, then the left. ‘Then I accept your submission, Tamara, and pledge to you that I will guide, protect, encourage and discipline you in order for you to strive towards your goals.’

‘I don’t have any goals, Sir.’

‘You don’t have any goals yet, Tamara.’

To read all the Kismet of Submission episodes in order from the beginning, please go to this page for individual links. As an FYI, this series, Kismet of Submission, will conclude by the end of the year. I will be pulling the posts at that time, and then continuing to write a full-length novel starring Sir and Tamara for publication in either 2018 or 2019.


  1. I’ve really enjoyed this series. When I see Tamara’s name, as I start reading, I smile and lean into Sir’s thoughts. I’ll be sad when the posts end, but believe you do have the beginnings of a fantastic story.
    Good luck to you.


    • Thank you Audrey for your support and comments. Nearly all my longer fiction begins as flash fiction on a blog. A select few stories are posted more than once, and from there, potential novels and novellas are born. Kismet happens to be one of those. However, I am always seeking beta readers, so if are interested in assisting me with a future book draft of Kismet, then you won’t have to be sad. 🙂 Besides, Bumhampton is staying and a new multi-episode story will replace Kismet at some point.


  2. Once again we’re submerged into the seriousness behind Tamara’s and Sir’s relationship. It’s always necessary; it always has a strong impact on me.

    I would reiterate your comment: if anyone wants to beta read this work as it becomes the wonderful novel I know it will be, I would encourage them to get in touch. Genuinely interested eyes on a work in order to make it better are always welcome. There will also shortly be a page on the Clarian Press website for beta readers and voluntary reviewers of completed works to contact me (shameless plug: for more details, as review copies of your brilliant The Spanking Misadventures of Stephanie will soon be ready).


    • Seriousness. Yes, I agree. There is a lot at stake and a careless word can be devastating.

      • I understand that. Just as long as care over words doesn’t become inhibitive to honest thought and emotion. I’d hate to see it stagnate in a safe pool of words.

  • The Spanking Misadventures of Stephanie

    The Spanking Misadventures of Stephanie, began as a modern updated tribute to The Perils of Pauline. It is a slightly satirical send up of both the contemporary spanking scene, and popular culture’s fascination with kink through the guise of both D/s and D/D. The novella is meant to be funny, corny, sprinkled with numerous touchstones and sly wordplay, while simultaneously weaving a constant serious spanking story line that turns romantic and erotic with a HEA ending.

    The first part of the novella details the spankings Stephanie receives in various settings by her neighbors and boss. These are not always graphically described, but are rather the result of Stephanie’s hapless bumbling into situations requiring discipline. A third of the way through the novella, she meets Ross at a restaurant party hosted by her boss. The sparks (and spanks) fly between them, and Ross finds himself scrambling to keep up with the vivacious and mischievous Stephanie. Before the week is out, through both discipline and erotic spankings, they fall deeply in love with each other, and Ross’ firm hand. Each chapter builds upon the previous story line as various supporting characters reveal their own kinky backgrounds. In the end, everyone is satisfied, and Ross sexually claims Stephanie for his own.
