“I deserved that spanking.”

“Yes you did. You certainly needed it. I knew that you needed some more discipline in your life. I think I underestimated how much discipline you needed. Or exactly what sort.” There was a ghost of a smile on Harry’s lips.

“Are you going to spank me again if I don’t do what you say?” asked Chelsey.

Harry looked her straight in the eye. “Yes. I am going to spank you as hard and as frequently as you deserve, Chelsey. In fact, that’s not all.”

Not all? Chelsey’s eyes widened. That certainly seemed enough.

“I want you to promise to obey me in everything over the next two days.”

“Everything?” What was he asking of her?

“Yes. I have a challenge for you. It’s the weekend. We have two full days of one another’s company. You will surrender yourself completely over to my authority. You will obey every single one of my orders, quickly and without question. Any disobedience or insubordination will be dealt with swiftly and harshly.” He punctuated his last remark with a sharp slap to Chelsey’s bottom. She yelped as his hand made contact with her bruised flesh, even though the smack itself had not been hard. “If you pass the challenge, if you can show complete obedience for two whole days, then we can decide where we go from there.”

Chelsey stared at him. She was unable to speak for the moment, trying to comprehend what he was asking of her. Was this a sexual thing? She didn’t think so. He might have pushed her knickers down and spanked her bare bottom but he had not so much as kissed her. Even if it was a sexual thing, did she really mind? She had fancied him for years, had fantasised about having him inside of her, even though she knew that she didn’t deserve him.

So what did he want from her really? Her obedience? Proof that she could do what she was told? Could she give him that?
