Perhaps, not surprisingly then, we slept soundly until about 8:30 this morning. We might have slept later than that except that we were awakened by barking dogs outside our bedroom window -- part of the condo complex's ongoing efforts to keep the Canada Geese away from our ponds and grounds.
Once awake, He seemed to be in a soft and cuddly mood. It was clear that He was feeling turned on, but He didn't seem to feel any sense of urgency, and we snuggled and scratched and rubbed, murmuring softly to one another. In time, our conversation began to turn to the subject of THE BIRTHDAY SPANKING. At the mention of that, He went straight to the very young, very innocent, very sweet sounding persona that I see more and more of these days -- the one that I imagine is the young boy that He was before life took Him down the path to anger and fury and addiction. That sweet youngster, is charming -- especially in the face of a spanking. He blushes and squirms and giggles shyly.
For my part, I was full of questions --
- Now? or Later?
- One spanking? or Two?
- Shared between T and I? or Separately with each of us?
- Implements? or Just my hand?
I found myself contemplating that, in this instance, and for the first time ever, I was about to take on the role of Top without a corollary submissive/service orientation. I could feel myself preparing to spank Him AS MYSELF -- and I was clear that He wasn't driving my actions and decisions. There was no sense that He was Topping from the Bottom, and no scintilla of Service Topping on my part. He was exactly Himself, and I was exactly myself, and we were together very gently and delightfully in the quiet of the rainy spring morning.
Happy birthday, My Love, My Sir, My Imp, My Master. I love you so much. Always and all ways.
