Your choice for P was No! Don’t use the Safe Word (Piccadilly)
Even though it was probably bad for appearances, Aralyn didn’t care. She was enjoying the feeling of Sevy’s hand striking her, and she didn’t want to use her safe word. She had been too well trained to only use her safe word if the scene needed to end. So for better or worse, she held her tongue. She knew that he couldn’t go on forever, but she had made the decision to outlast him, and so she held her tongue.
She had no idea how long it would take for him to stop spanking her, but it wasn’t as long as she would have liked. He slowed down and then stopped, taking a deep breath. It seemed like he was getting control of himself before approaching her. When he had pulled himself together, he approached and pressed his hand onto her back gently.
“Are you okay?” he asked. It seemed like he had a note of confusion to his voice that Aralyn hadn’t stopped him.
“I’m fine,” she replied, her voice quiet and husky. Sevy helped her stand up. She was stiff from having been in the same position for a while.
“What did you think of that?” he asked as he took her into his arms, the whole time moving slowly and deliberately, clearly giving her the option to move away from him if she wanted to. “You seemed to enjoy it.”
She hesitated before answering. Appearances were everything in this situation. “I liked it,” she said, not meeting Sevy’s eyes.
He pressed her chin up so she would have to look at him. “I’m glad,” he said. “Can we do it again, another time?”
“I would like that,” she murmured.
“Good.” He wrapped her in his arms and held her tight then, kissing the top of her head. She looked at him from within the circle of his arms.
“Thank you,” she said, and he let her step back a little so he could see her better.
“For showing me what a joy that could be.”
“You’re very welcome,” he replied. “I’m so glad you enjoyed it.” It sounded as though relief was emanating from him through his voice and his body language. He hugged her tight again.
The quiet in the room was complete. There was no noise from outside of it, no music, nothing. Even Sevy was breathing so quietly she couldn’t hear him. She wondered what she should do? She was starting to feel internal pressure to talk to Sevy about her past, to tell him why she was running and what she was running from, to come clean about everything. But she wasn’t sure that she could break the quiet of the room.
Should she break the quiet?
Yes OR No
