We worked together fixing dinner and cleaning up. Dinner was on the late side and the evening twilight was beginning. I asked Jack if he wanted to sit in the garden or watch a little TV. He turned to look at me and said that we had something to take care of upstairs first. Those words at our house mean just one thing. No, wait! I said we were both involved in that argument. He said yes, we were, but we would need a reset to get back on track. No, wait, I said. I get spanked and what happens to you? He said gently that he would be doing the spanking and I would be receiving the spanking.
So upstairs we went..... a grumbling Meredith and a determined Jack. I was still in disbelief. We had apologized and were in agreement with our decision. Why a spanking? Wait, I say! He calmly begins undressing me and says that after that argument, he was doing a reset to get us back on track. He takes the leather paddle from the drawer and I am flummoxed. How can this be? We
were both in the heat of things and now my bottom was what was going to be heating up.
Jack could tell I wanted more talk before things happened. He stood me between his legs saying that a reset spanking focuses on our roles. I am submitting and following and he is leading and ....... yes, that's right, spanking! We need to get back to our ttwd life and this was the way we would do it. Who is going to spank you, I say. He told me that he is doing the spanking.
So over I went and after a warm up, he paddled me telling me we were back in step. It was a whopper and I was close to tears. He held me and said things work so well when we are on track. He said that I may feel this is unfair, but it is the way things work best in ttwd. He said he wants things smooth and if it takes a spanking to get there, then so be it. He did all this talking with the paddle in his hand just in case there were other claims that things were unfair.
I have thought about what happened all day today. Really, I have thought about little else. Things are back to smooth. The feeling of things being unfair are gone. My bottom is still sore and I received an email from Ami Starsong. It seems the same kind of thing happened at her house. She wrote a post about it. Make sure you read it. She told me in the natural way of things, the reset accomplished just what our men intended.
What do you think? I am still just plain thinking.
