Hello and welcome to my contribution to Saturday Spankings. Below is an exchange between Nathan and Emma, the characters in my WIP, Emma’s Surrender. They are just getting to know each other here, and it’s not the pleasantest of acquaintances.
“Not another word, Brookstone. Your job is to obey, not talk. You’ve been captured by a dangerous man, and when that happens, you do what the dangerous man tells you without argument, understand?”
She blinked at him, befuddled and nearly at a loss for words. “I’ll try to remember that the next time I’m kidnapped by a… a mean son of a gun!” she said, her voice rising. She held her breath as fear washed over her. She didn’t know much about being kidnapped, but she knew it was likely unwise to insult her kidnapper. She nearly couldn’t help herself, though. The way he was instructing her and taking care of her seemed preposterous, considering that he had ruined her life.
He shook his head and released her chin. He again pointed at the spot where she was to sit. As she obeyed, he muttered, “Son of a gun. That’s the best she’s got.”
If she didn’t know better, she would think it was regret in his voice, or a softening toward her. She decided that was not the case, however, for after she’d gotten herself situated on the cold ground, he focused a withering look on her. “Don’t move from there, else I’ll tan your hide.”
