“Sex is always better after a spanking,” he’d declared.
“Who for? Me or you?”
“Both of us,” he’d grinned. “You were drenched and I’m not talking about the bathwater.”
“Bastard!” Half annoyed and half-embarrassed, she slapped his arm.
“Stop that,” he said, stern. “That’s my job.” He sat up, hauled her across his lap and gave her backside another six sharp smacks.
“Ow,” she said. “This is so unfair.”
“But you’re enjoying it,” he said. “Aren’t you?”
It was too embarrassing to admit it, but yes, Lucy was. Spanking had been something she’d fantasised about for years. Schoolteachers had been the imaginary spankers in her childhood, followed by boys she’d fancied in her teens and later the handsome young men she’d met through work. She’d fantasised about being spanked by Noel, too, and the fact that he actually did spank sent shivers down her spine. Not that she could bring herself to admit it. Instead, she wiggled her bottom, hoping that would serve as the answer that she couldn’t pluck up the courage to give voice to.
He’d chuckled and stroked her smarting buttocks and thighs. “That was just playful,” he’d said. “You wait till you get a real spanking from me. I can guarantee you won’t enjoy it at all.”
At that moment she couldn’t imagine not enjoying a spanking from Noel. But down the track she’d realised he was as good as his word.
