I did need to be reminded of my place. He chose to remind me by forcing me down over his knees as he struck me until I gave in. I tried to hold out, for quite a while, being the stubborn girl that I am (not always a good trait, especially against your Dom). I tried to get away. I tried to squirm out of his reach. I tried to take it and prove to myself that I could handle it. And through it all, he restrained me with his body, overpowered me completely, and didn't let me get away. He didn't let my tears deter him, and continued on until I gave him what he wanted.
Eventually I did, as I could do nothing else.
"Are you ready to stop whining now?"
Though this spanking punishment was not fun (I normally find spanking and striking appealing, but the context and intensity of the blows changed it all), I am happy to know that Sir can and will put me in my place.
Overall, I still think that we are better as a D/s couple, meshing well together, even if my brain doesn't know how to react to certain situations.
And I'm sure tomorrow as I drive to work, I will smile thinking of him.
