Chapter 16 God and My Right Teaser

Chapter 16


Harry’s litter could not move fast enough for him. He was giddy inside over surprising her and taking the upper hand back, if he ever had it in regards to her. His rounded chin quivered as he barked out orders for more speed, but it was his great heft that slowed them down.

He damned his appetite, he damned his mangled leg, and damned his own hands for scaring her by always touching her in the brief moments they’d had. If he had been patient, maybe she would have stayed and not left. Maybe she would have found him infinitely superior to his damned brother.

Isabella—how he missed her. And those duckies . . . how he longed to kiss them and rub his erection all over them while he showed her his true affection for her.

She was his light in the darkness, and would be his warmth in his bed and heart. She was what he wished he had known as his first and only wife. England never had such a humble, honest queen, and they deserved to know her. But Isabella wanted none of that—baffling woman.

And he was selfish—willing to have her without sharing her with the masses as long as she would turn away from Edward.

He bunched his fists and stared at his servants with an evil glint.

If they cared at all about his mental health, then they would find a way to make this litter fly.

When the carriage finally slowed and stopped, he roared, “Get me inside there at once, and if Isabella escapes out a back door there shall be nothing but fire and brimstone rained down upon all your heads!”

Chapter 17: Spared


“God, I’m glad to be home,” I almost whine as I enter our home.

The smell of something savory hits me. Did she make me fresh bread and cream of broccoli soup from scratch again? She just made it for me last week. I swear the woman’s gonna make me soft and doughy in no time if I’m not careful. But damn, her cooking’s fabulous. Need to probably put more hours in at the gym so I can keep eating it.

“Master,” she says softly, kneeling by the door. I told her to stay dressed this time.

I stroke her hair and bid her to stand.

She does, and I kiss her softly.

Yep, she made my favorite soup. I can taste it on her lips.

“How was your lunch today with Julie?” I ask.

“Great, Master,” she sighs and smiles with a lazy, almost doped up grin. “I really like her. She’s wonderful. She told me about how her own family was really dysfunctional and how her dad disowned her as well. They haven’t spoken in years.”

I direct her to the table and she serves me my food first, then her own.

“Continue,” I dip my head, “I wanna hear more about what she told you.”

She smiles, swallows and cuts me a slice of bread. Christ, my stomach’s snarling, it smells so fucking good.

“She said she’s never been happier—now that she doesn’t worry about her family judging her and opposing things in her life they can’t or won’t understand, she feels freer.”

I smile and reach out, caressing her wrist. She sets down the butter knife, her breath catches in her throat and her eyes flood with pure adoration. “I love you, Master.”

“I love you, sweetheart, and I’m so pleased to hear Julie shared all this with you.” I refuse to blink. In this moment, I want to take all of her in, see every tiny movement.

Her mouth softens and her lips part. A soft breath escapes her. “She’s really happy for us. She shared with me some things she knew about you, and I was so excited to hear about how—”

“She didn’t talk about my past subs did she?” I frown.

Chapter 16 Cuffs -- Visuals and Dom/sub 24/7 vs other arrangements

This is the VixSkin dildo with the 2 inch diameter mentioned in this chapter. VixSkin is supposed to be as lifelike as you can get. I have a few different VixSkin dildos, and while they are enjoyable, I don't ever see enough of a difference to put them into my permanent rotation of regularly used toys I keep close at hand. But still worth trying it at least once if you're in the market for a new sex toy, so I don't want to discourage you. They are expensive though. Usually $60 or more.

http://www.edenfantasys.com/dildos/realistic-dildos/maverick-vixskin

The video's kind of cool on this as well so you can find out how it compares to the competition.

I do own a 2 inch diameter dildo that is not VixSkin, and that bad boy is in my permanent rotation. It's one of my few toys that can make me squirt if I mount it or get it at the exact right angle. Yep, it's messy, but so worth it. And there's no way to adequately describe how intense double penetration is with something this large filling you up when you're entered by your lover in the other hole. Yeah, it's pretty damn spectacular.

Think fire works but with gushing instead. Best way I can describe it.

On to the question a few of you have asked me. Some of you are wondering if all Dom/subs are 24/7 where it's present in their everyday life every moment. It varies by couple to couple just as the kink list does. Some only want it in the bedroom, some only on weekends or other specified times, dates or places. With a more limited basis I'm sure it ocassionally bleeds over into their regular life, but I'm not an expert on this. I do know, there's no hard and fast rule. Some want it all the time though, and this Edward and Bella want it 24/7.

I'm sure some readers are wishing there was some down time where she simply called him by his first name, where it seems a little more kicked back, but they're happiest this way, both of them. They have a very intense need to live this lifestyle as much of the day as possible, and their strong need for each other tends to strengthen the craving. So for them, it works.

You're not going to see this Bella struggle with calling him Master all the time because this is what she desires. It would be forced to call him Edward the majority of the time she speaks to him. If you remember, from the very beginning before she really knew him at all, she always called him Sir out of respect. Why would she change that now? It's ingrained in her, and it's as natural to her as breathing. It's even more important now if she wants to keep that connection constant with him. They both love it, so it's not simply to serve him or done as an "act," or only as a part of their playing together, it's truly who they are.

I hope this helps. Thanks for those of you that asked about it.

Chapter 16 Cuffs Teaser

Chapter 16: Moved


“Good news, Master,” Bella chirps in the phone.

“Do I need to leave work early to celebrate?” I ask, my fingers tapping at the edge of my desk, ready to shut my laptop and leave now if she says something I want to hear.

“My house sold! Can you believe it, Master?”

She’s damn near giddy, and I’m smiling so hard, I can barely stand to sit here and not hug her tight. A small tinge of guilt plagues me simultaneously, though. I’d told her I’d deal with selling her house, but lately I’ve been so busy at the office, I’ve had to work late, and it just didn’t seem feasible for me to deal with that as well.

“That’s wonderful. Are you excited to feel like you have a more permanent spot at my side?”

“Mmhmm, and that’s not all, Master. I think I might’ve found a job as well.”

My heart kind of ricochets around my ribs on this news. A primitive part of me wants her home where I can reach her any time. I don’t relish the idea of her being in an office where any asshole can be leering at her and maybe even be hitting on her.

Mine!

I bite back a growl, threatening to escape.

“Oh, someone’s gonna be so happy when he gets home. I have a surprise,” she sing-songs.

Just an Hour chapter 20 Teaser

Chapter 20


Edward held Bella all night. It was the best sleep she ever had.

And when she woke, he kissed her for several minutes with such passion, her toes cramped up from curling so much.

It was a good night, and a terrific morning.

“Morning, beautiful,” he said fisting her hair and rubbing his clothed cock on her thigh.

“Morning, Sir.” She smiled with a lazy grin, her eyelids heavy.

“I love watching you sleep. You smile sometimes, and you even make these happy little purring sounds.” He kissed her cheek and rolled away.

“Oh, God, I’m . . . I didn’t say anything did I, Sir?” She wiped the sleep out of her eyes.

“You only said the word fuck more times than I’ve ever heard you say it, and my name came out a few times.” He smirked and winked.

“I did not,” she said, her face going pale.

“If you want the proof, I’ll play you the recording later.” She gasped, and he continued on, “But right now, it’s time to get up, eat, shower, get dressed. We’ve got somewhere to be.”

He held his palm out to her.

“And you’re still not going to tell me, Sir?”

“Nope,” he said, popping his P. “But I will feed you, wash you, and dress you if you don’t get your ass out of bed right now.”

She groaned and heaved herself out of the comfortable nest they’d made.

“Just don’t expect me to be all cheery without my caffeine fix. No smiles until my veins are buzzing, Sir.”

“You give a good warning, but I hate to tell you—you’ve already smiled at me, so that makes you a liar. But since you barely woke up, I’ll let it go . . .”

“Anything you’d like for breakfast, Sir?”

He grinned. “You already know what I like to eat."

Chapter 14 Cuffs Teaser

Chapter 14: Collared


How many times is that bitch gonna call and text?

I shove Bella’s phone across my desk.

Allie sure has a knack for getting under a Dom’s skin.

I hate that I can’t text Bella since I’ve got her phone, but this had to be dealt with.

Bzzzzpppp.

Another text? Is she kidding me?

I try to ignore it so I can get through a large pile of paperwork since my plan is to leave early today so I can surprise Bella for our collaring ceremony tonight.

But this bitch won’t stop—Allie can’t seem to keep from spewing hate.

Bzzzzppp.

“Fuck, woman, get a life!” I groan.

I finally pick it up and read her last two messages. Mostly I’ve ignored them. When I have answered them, it’s been with clipped, abbreviated responses.

I talked to Mike this morning. I ran into him at Starbucks. He says you’re dating a psycho, and that Edward sent somebody after him. They robbed his apartment and everything. Call me!

I chuckle until I read the second one . . .

Chapter 15 God and My Right teaser

Chapter 15


Harry read it for the third time. It was euphoria, and it was damnation. It was love, and it was abomination.

How could he ever figure this woman out? She perplexed and mesmerized him to a frightening degree. His chest felt flayed open, all for her.



Harry

You may know who I am, and you may know where I am, but where my heart is—that you shall never know. For I have no complete answer for myself, other than I wish to stay where I am.

I have tried to quell the desire to see you and explain so you would have mercy, but it will not abate.

I think we may need to meet privately, and I will hold you to a promise to refrain from harming your brother, otherwise I will be forced to disappear for good, and you shall never see this woman’s visage again.

If you agree, then I shall set a suitable date and time.

Chapter 12 Cuffs Teaser

Chapter 12: Nestled


We made it through the rest of the week without any incident, and having mind-blowing sex every chance we got.

And though we haven’t heard from or seen Mike at all, he’s still there in the back of my mind, taunting me.

Making me crazy.

Bella sits with me at the dinner table, barely poking her food. There’re bags under her eyes, and a wave of guilt sweeps through me.

Shit—I keep waking her up, my erection insisting she feed this uncontrollable selfish need for more.

“We’re gonna go out tonight,” I say, intending to use this as a means of distraction so I won’t jump her again.

The woman needs a break, and I realize this. Plus, it’s a Friday night.

I got an invite today from a friend to meet him and a few others at a club I’ve never been to.

“Sounds good, Sir,” she says, barely looking at me for the brief second it takes to agree with me.

“I’ve got a few people I want you to meet,” I reply.

“Okay.”

I want to grit my teeth and remind her to address me properly, but she looks ready to fall asleep.

“You all right? Are you coming down with something?” I ask.

“No. I’m fine. Just a little tired, Sir. I’ll be good to go whenever you’re ready to leave.” She smiles, but it’s a half-hearted attempt.

“Angel, I want you to go take a nap. I’ll wake you up in a few hours when it’s time to meet them,” I say.

She gets up, her entire body hunched over and her eyes lifeless.

“I’ll bring you to bed,” I say.

Chapter 11 Cuffs -- Subspace and Subdrop

One of the most intriguing aspects of this lifestyle to me initially was the idea of subspace and subdrop. That a person's mood and personality could be so altered from such intense physical sensations and a deep connection, that it's not something that the sub can necessarily control at first. My understanding is that over time she might learn to look for warning signs of subdrop, but hopefully if she misses them, her Dom won't. He'll see them and do something to make sure it doens't get to that point.

Now, subspace is even more amazing to me. To trust a partner so fully that the mind can just drift away like it's floating in an almost trance-like state--damn. I want that. I can't imagine anyone not wanting that--feeling that good. Yum!

It's not something that can necessarily be planned and isn't even really the goal, but I've been told it's an added bonus and when it happens, damn.

Damn.

Damn.

Damn.

Are those enough damns for you?

All right. Don't listen to me blabber on about it. Read some of these links by other submissives that share their experiences on these topics, since they describe it much better than I ever could:

Chapter 11 Cuffs teaser

Chapter 11: Enflamed


I move off of her, hover, hanging my head and sit back on my heels after realizing what I’ve just done.

How could I have been so careless?

I stare at my come slathered all over her hairs, all over her thighs. Fuck!

My eyes glaze over.

Please, don’t tell me I just . . .

I wipe my hands down my face, get up and bring back a warm, wet washcloth and a towel. After I’ve cleaned her off and taken my time to do it so I can get ahold of myself, I turn to her.

“Are you okay, angel?” I set aside the towel and cleaning rag, and slide behind her.

She nods and looks at me bright-eyed and almost ecstatic.

I massage her shoulders, kiss them reverently, and try to infuse some warmth back in her body. Her skin glows so perfectly.

I grab some cream from the side drawer, taking care to rub it in gently but efficiently.

“Was I too rough with you?” I ask in almost a low, hum.

Touching her like this has me so relaxed it’s like my body’s trying to lull me to sleep by vibrating and turning me into nothing but white noise.

Yet, my hands continue to roam over every inch of her, and my lips join in.

“Could you be anymore lovely and radiant, Isabella? I can’t stop fucking touching and kissing you,” I breathe into her skin.

Chapter 10 Cuffs Teaser

Chapter 10: Falling


“I said, what’s going on? Why did she look at me like that?” Mike asks, his hands on his hips.

“She looked at you like that, because she can’t believe how stupid you are.” I pause and shove my fists in my pockets so I don’t take a swing at this moron. “And the only thing going is you—she’s unavailable, now and forever. The sooner you accept that fact, the better.”

“You’re joking, right?” He snorts with a smug grin. “You?” He tosses his hand out, motioning at me like I can’t possibly take myself serious about this. “You’re no Dom.”

I shake my head and laugh. “Funny . . . I was thinking the same about you.” I take a few steps closer, and almost prowl around him. “Ignoring her hard limits, fucking around behind her back when you knew she’d never be okay with that. You’re the one that’s pretending like he can take care of her. I give her exactly what she needs—me.”

“I didn’t—I’m not like—it’s not your concern what happened between us. She’s mine!” he says, his voice escalating.

“Wrong,” I reply. “That little girl’s all mine. I’ll be collaring before you can figure out what you fucking lost.”

Chapter 9 Cuffs — Dominance vs Abuse

One of the things I read and hear about are people saying Dominants are abusive, that they’re taking advantage of a woman and demeaning them. Nothing could be further from than the truth than that. Here’s the difference—this is a consensual agreement.

 
This is why going through both individual’s kink lists thoroughly before ever playing is so essential. This is also why some choose to sign a contractual agreement. This way they both know upfront what the other needs, what’s agreed upon and how things are expected to go.

 
What the general public fails to understand is that the submissive has all the power.


What? How can that be? She’s surrendering it all to him!

 
Yes, but he has no power unless she gives it to him. What she’s done is said what will and won’t happen. She tells him what’s acceptable, what she wants, and then it’s up to him to implement it all. What helped me to finally understand this was to think about it this way. Say I want a house built. I tell the architect what I want and don’t want. He drafts up the plans (the kink list), and I go through it and approve or tell him what to tweak. Once it’s where I want it and he’s agreed it’s within his scope of abilities and expertise, then I sign the contract and hand it over to him. He then starts to build and makes it his own project. He does it his way, and I trust him to do right by me. He wants me to be happy, so he’s not going to do a shoddy job. And I want to stay out of his way so he can do the best job possible without me micromanaging (that’s called topping from the bottom, in case you were wondering—when a sub starts telling the Dom how to do something during a scene). Is it scary to give up control and trust this builder with my life? I mean, I’ll be the one living in this house day to day, not him. Yes. It’s scary, but it’s also liberating to not have to worry and obsess over every little detail. He has the expertise, training and tools to handle all that stuff better. He knows things I don’t—has experiences that lend to what he’s doing. Why wouldn’t I trust him unless he’s done something to make me nervous.

 
Now, what if he starts to build and I decide I don’t like the way he’s erecting a wall? I can safeword. It essentially means, “Hey! Stop! This wasn’t what I thought it would be like.” Then we can halt what we’re doing, go over the plans again if needed and discuss what the problem is.


So, is this an abusive relationship?


What if he wants access to my email, my Facebook, twitter accounts, my phone and mail? What if he wants access to my bank accounts? What if he tells me what to wear, who I can and can’t talk to or be around outside of work? What if he tells me what to eat, how often to exercise or even what kind of makeup and perfume to wear? Is that stepping over the line?

 
The only way it’s abuse in my mind is if she doesn’t want any of this and tells him no, but he exerts his will over her anyway. If he does that, she can break the contract, say it’s not working for her and end the agreement. This means he’s no longer her Dom and she’s free to go. See why I say she has all the power?


Obviously, he can break the contract, too and say it’s not working for him as well if she wants things he’s not comfortable with. What if she’s into pain, and he’s not okay administering a lot of it in the way she wants? Is that a unified relationship? Nope.

What I’ve been told by other submissives I’ve talked to when they’re not openly public about their Dom/sub relationship is that the rest of the world just sees their Dom as a controlling asshole. They see him order her food at a restaurant for her, speak for her, walk her to the bathroom and hover outside the door until she’s safely back out. These outside people say, “This man’s borderline abusive and almost has her brainwashed!” My questions is, why do they care? If she’s blissfully happy, and the submissives I’ve talked to are elated their Dom’s are protective and possessive and there for them, what’s the problem?


The beauty of this relationship is that they are both meeting a need in each other that cannot be met any other way. She needs it to be about serving and worshiping him. And he needs it to be about protecting her and keeping her happy by orchestrating all her affairs outside household duties like cooking and cleaning. There are clearly defined roles here, and one is very decidedly masculine and the other clearly feminine. I love that. I admire that they can go against the grain and do what feels right deep down in their core. That takes a ton of courage. Good for them.

 
Before I end this little blurb of mine, I want to touch on the nerve that gets hit with most people unfamiliar with this lifestyle—punishment. Whoa! Punishment? Like a toddler? Nope. Not the same at all. And not every punishment for every infraction is a spanking. There are a variety of ways to deal with discipline. But why is it even needed? Isn’t that archaic, almost like a caveman? No, it’s not, and here’s why… If you’re like me and you have submissive tendencies, then you know what it means to beat yourself up over every little thing you do wrong. I’m a master at this. I love the idea that when I do something wrong, a Dom would mete out a punishment and then it would be over. We’d both be able to let go because there are no grudges held. Justice is served. I would know the rules upfront, and if I purposefully broke them, I’d know there was going to be a punishment in the end. It’s liberating to know he wouldn’t think any less of me afterward. That it would be a clean slate when it was over. I cannot say how much I love this and how beautifully this works. There’s absolute respect and forgiveness involved. Where else do you see this? And like I said, it’s not always about corporal punishment. It could be something like computer privileges taken away for a day, standing in a corner, or the worst of all (in my opinion anyway) no contact with her Dom for a period of time he determines.

 
The other part of punishment that most of us don’t realize is he never punishes while angry or when he’s feeling out of control. It can happen hours or even days after the original transgression happened, so he’s not unleashing on her and hurting her more than is necessary if they choose to go with a spanking or anything else physical.

Now, here’s the fun part. I’ve been told by some submissives that sometimes they’re naughty on purpose because there is nothing sexier than when he goes into Dom mode and punishes. Holy hell… Yeah, I can see that. There’s something about being told to crawl with his belt in my mouth that would get me all sorts of wet as he gives me that look…


The other part of this is what about getting in trouble on purpose for his benefit. Whaaa…? Yeah, it happens. He’s having a hard day at work, feels out of control with extended family or something else is out of his control. Well, she can push his buttons on purpose so he’s forced to punish her, and he gets his needs met. Everyone’s happy, and he’s in charge once again. Balance is restored.


Absolutely stunning. This is a unique, complex relationship, and it all comes down to trust. Without trust it doesn’t work, and if I was being abused by a Dom against my will, would I trust him? Hell no.

 
When a Dom calls his sub a slut, a whore, or whatever else he wants to say, it’s not meant as verbal abuse. It’s meant as a sign of respect and reverence. How is that possible? Because deep inside most women is a need to be a minx for her man. To be that sexual creature in the bedroom that drives him wild and unleashes him like no one else can. Being called a fuck toy is an honor, not a bash against her self esteem as a woman. He’s not abasing her, and if he’s using her, it’s because she wants him to. I’ll repeat that again—she wants him to. How do we know this? She went through her kink list with him, and through his, she agreed she wants this, and wants more than anything to be used for his pleasure. She doesn’t have to go against her nature and make sexual passes at him. Some women want a man to take absolute charge in the bedroom, and that’s a good thing because it fulfills a need in both of them.


There is so much more I can say about this world, but I think this is a good start. Hopefully it brings up some issues where it makes it easier to see why this is not a one-sided relationship. In the words of a submissive I talked to, she said, “I get way more out of it than he ever will.”

 
Amen, I agree completely. He’s there for his submissive in all things. She turns her cares and worry over to him. Who does that for him? It takes a strong man to be able to handle all this. To me, that’s the ultimate man, what a man should be. The alpha male, the protector and provider, the man who leads and takes charge because he’s compelled to, not because society or anyone else says he should.

 
Abusive? Absolutely not. Quite the opposite. Cherished and protected because nobody knows her better than him, and nobody cares about her as much as he does. Who else ensures her ultimate happiness? No one but him.

God and My Right chapter 14 Teaser

Chapter 14


Edward sighed and grimaced.

He disliked it greatly when William attended to his ankle, rather than his wife, but today, she was required for business affairs. Now that she was back in her court, there were expectations placed on her. No matter how much she tried to demur to the other counselors who had taken over in her absence, her loyal subjects seemed intent on putting her back in power.

She was miserable each time they forced matters upon her.

He would hold her tonight, coo softly in her ear and caress her seeds out of her with his hands and tongue.

She would like that.

He smiled until riiiiip!

“Ow, goddammit! Be careful, please!” Edward said, his leg burning at the way William tore the bandages off.

He sucked in large volumes of air, trying to suffer through the pain as best he could.

“The doctor says I must be firm, otherwise it will never heal,” William said.

“Well, to devil with that doctor, I say,” Edward hissed.

“And I do, too. He is an odd man. But then . . .” William averted his eyes away from Edward and tended to his leg.

“Then what? Come, come—you cannot engage me and then drop it like the reins on a wild stallion being broken in. I must know, or my mind will run wild like a horse would do.” Edward stared at him.

“I was going to say, but then you married a very peculiar woman. No one understands her,” William said. His face pinched at the corners, as if he was expecting a blow to come hurtling his way.

“Speak your mind. I am not my brother. My anger stays in check unless someone tries to fondle Isabella—then by all means, I turn into a savage, mindless brute.”

William chuckled. “If you are certain?”

“I am.” Edward nodded.

William unwound the rest of the bandages and his touch was a little less harsh now.

Edward would have to remember to talk to him and keep his mind engaged next time he was to handle Edward’s leg in the stead of the doctor or his wife.

“You know her background?”

Chapter 13 God and My Right -- Tudor medicine

It's kind of odd how often I'm talking about this subject and never intend to, but most people in the Tudor period didn't live past their late 30's. King Henry VIII died at the age of 55, and that was considered ancient by their standards. This is why so many married so young at the age of 13 and some even younger. They popped out as many babies as they could because there was a high infant mortality rate. It wasn't uncommon for a woman to give birth 13 times and have only 4 of those children survive into adulthood.

Why was it like this? Medicine back then was woefully inadequate as we well know. Doctors bled patients regularly to restore the "humours" as they called them. It was believed if the good and bad humours were out of balance, illness would prevail. A lot of their beliefs on how to keep the humours in check were built on superstitions obviously.

Such as a man needed to release his seed regularly or he would fall into bad humours. This is why it was considered the norm and a good idea even that when a man's wife became pregnant that he take on a mistress. Heaven forbid he jack off and take care of the job himself. No, that just wasn't what you needed to do to keep the good humours in check. You needed a woman to release your seed into.

They also believed that if you bathed too much in a bath, submerging the skin for long periods of time, it would open the pores and let disease in, so they took a lot of what we refer to as sponge baths. Henry VIII was a visionary though and was one of the first kings to invent what we now have as a modern day shower. He even had engineers that figured out how to make hot water tanks that attached to his showers. See why I love this man so much. Genius.

As soon as one bathed, it was requisite they wrap themselves in a giant sheet and sit before the fire. Women with long hair were meticulous about having a servant go through their hair with a lice comb and make sure their hair dried completely so they would not catch cold and die. They used perfumes to mask the smells from not fully bathing as often as we do today.

Now, what if you did fall ill? The sweating sickness is a classic case of what happened. Too few physicians (though they couldn't stop it and probably did more harm than good anyway) and not enough money to pay them. Each town had one or more of what they referred to as a wise woman. She was similar to a midwife in some ways but she attended to those that were ill in the village by making herbal tinctures, poultices, teas, infusions and so on. She was almost an apothecary of sorts, and would go from house to house to help those in need. This was a person very much looked up to and trusted by the community to handle the more regular illnesses that would take place, not deal with plagues like the dreaded sweating sickness that would pop up every decade or so and wipe out hundreds and thousands of people.

If this is the case, and medicine was so lousy, how did Henry last so long when his brother died at age 15? He was paranoid is one of the answers, and if he saw that a virulent disease was spreading he literally ran for his life. He had 17 manners and would remove every 4 to 6 months to a different one. Many of them were out in the country where he could easily hunt sport and get some fresh air. If he left in haste by horse and landed in one of his more secluded, smaller homes, he was safe from the outside world. He could take a limited number of servants and pretty much quarantine himself until it had passed. That is exactly what he did when a really violent outburst of the sweating sickness hit in 1528. Anne Boleyn and her brother George contracted it and Henry would not see her until she was well again. He took Catherine of Aragon, basically his estranged wife at the time, and fled with her even though he was in a full fledged relationship with Anne, and they hid out in one of his country manors. He sent Anne one of his most prominent physicians, and both Anne and George were one of the few to survive the disease (one of Anne's own personal ladies-in-waiting was one of the first to get it and she died within hours of contracting it). It's even believed that this is the very disease that killed Arthur, Henry's older brother and had even struck Catherine at that same time when she was married to his brother, though she also clearly survived.

Henry was obviously a very healthy man. He was athletic and solid, very physical with all the sports he was involved in and he was very aware of disease around him. One of the things he noticed as king was that the sanitation issues led to illness. Before he was king, cooks, servants, and everyday people at court would dump refuse in the moat around the castles. Every time someone used the garderobe (a latrine basically) it dumped into the moat as well. It killed the fish and stank to high heaven. Nobody wanted to be around it and it encouraged nasty vermin like rats to take up residence. So he had all the moats drained, cleaned and banned any dumping at all in them. He even had the garderobes regularly scoured along with the drains to keep things flowing well and to keep disease from striking. He had the moats restocked with fish and made sure it stayed clean. He had the plumbing hooked to travel under the castles and dump directly into the river. Now you know why the Thames was brown, stank like rotting corpses and anyone that traveled on it burned incense and wore herbs on their doublets or coats--so they didn't have to smell that offensive river.

He also noticed that men would urinate all over the castle walls. Outdoors and indoors. This had to stop. So he had red crosses painted at various points along the walls to discourage this since no one wanted to desecrate a cross and pee on it, and he had urinals placed in the walls along all the outside court walls and in the gardens so men would stop moving aside their codpieces and peeing wherever they were. It worked. I'm telling you--this man was genius.

Okay, so now we know sanitation drastically improved (and actually didn't see any new advances after Henry for a thousand years in England) but what of broken bones? Well, when I did the research there really wasn't a lot to go off of so I had to use my imagination. We do know that when Henry had that horrible jousting accident with Charles Brandon that basically made him lame for the rest of his life and contributed to his later morbid obesity, his leg most likely snapped. He was in a coma for a short period and over the years, off and on that leg would get sores that would open, puss would drain and it would shoot out bone splinters. This suggests that the bones probably weren't set right and that he had diabetes so the wounds couldn't ever completely heal. He had to walk with a cane for the rest of his days and there were even periods of time when it would fester and he'd be in so much pain, he'd have to be carried around in a chair by his servants. It's said he even devised some sort of primitive wheel chair at one point. Wow. So clever...

I don't know if they had such things as casts or splints back then. I'm assuming they did have some way of wrapping and immobilizing broken bones but there's just not a whole lot of information to go off of. Sorry, I wish I knew more, but unfortunately I don't have the time to delve deeply into that topic.

I am grateful, however, that Henry did what he could by being observant and seeing that better sanitation would make big improvements in the health of his subjects at court. That's a man that knew it was his responsibility to direct change and he did it even if it meant huge renovations on his many properties.

Chapter 9 Cuffs Teaser

I won't make you wait... Here's your teaser for tomorrow's chapter.

Chapter 9: Tainted


“Calm your breathing down, angel,” I say, keeping her to my chest.

I unbraid her hair and stroke my fingers through it and down her back, under the covers.

“That was intense,” she says, out of breath.

“It was, and you were amazing. You took all of what I gave you.” I kiss the top of her head.

She slumps against me.

“I tried to . . . I complained some . . . Sorry,” she says and kisses my chest.

I chuckle. “Nothing to be sorry for. You were perfect. Were you uncomfortable with anything I did?”

“N-no, I was fine.” Her breathing is still choppy.

“Deep breaths, hon. I don’t need you getting light headed.” I reach over to the top drawer of the nightstand and grab a small handful of bite sized chocolate bars. “Open.”

Her head tips back, her lips part and I set one inside on her tongue.

I set the other two candy bars on the pillow next to me.

“Was any of it too rough?” I ask after she swallows the chocolate down.

“Not really. You probably could have gone harder.” She releases a low, deep breath.

“Better . . . Relax into me. Feel my body heat spreading through you.” I kiss her temple and run my fingers in lazy patterns all over her back.

She feels warmer now, but I pull the blanket up higher anyway.

“I don’t know how I’m ever going to stay away from you after that,” I murmur. “I’m already going out of my mind when I’m not with you, wondering where you are, what you’re doing, if some other asshole’s looking at my girl and trying to get her attention.” I yank on the ends of her hair, causing her to tip her head back.

I kiss her greedily for a moment, but can tell I need to take it easy on her. She’s worn out.

“Stay the night,” I tell her.

Cuffs chapter 8 music

Yes, I know, I still haven't said what the playroom looks like. I promise the story will unveil that along the way. It wasn't important for this chapter. It was the music that he was focused on and what it does to her. His focus is her right now--nothing else.

This is the song he played for her when he got her inside that room:


So, what do you think? Was the music what you expected him to play for her? Could you imagine it inciting her passions? Not your typical grind and "let's get dirty" song, but for her, it stirred the blood and turned things up a notch or two. Not hard to do with him in the room and in charge...

Yeah, I can imagine going into subspace in that playroom. :D

Contradictions on the kink list answered

Some of my readers pointed out some contradictions on Bella's kink list. They were done on purpose. Hopefully I can clear them up right now without giving away too much of the rest of the story.

Here are the items that were pointed out to me by various readers (questions in red, my answers in blue):

No breath play but willing to do asphyxiation and choking.

I've been told breath play is very dangerous and can be more frightening than asphyxiation and choking. Obviously, it depends on the players and their experience level, but since this Bella has only been with one other Dom and has only been in the lifestyle for a few years, she's heard a few scary things that have her gun shy on a few items. It's safe to assume this list will be revisted more than once as she begins to play with Edward and these types of concerns will be brought up and discussed. Along with this, there are some people that are cool with choking with the hands, but no ropes or chains around the neck. I would be one of those people. One I find incredibly erotic and hot, and the other just plain frightening. No judgment on people that like it because I can definitely see the appeal (on breath control as well--actually read an insanely sexy scene with breath control in a novel a few months ago, and it had me all worked up--ask me about it if you want to know more on this book) but everyone's brand of kink is different and there are nuances that are hard to flesh out in a short online story. For my published works, I get heavier into the reasons and explanation. Sorry but I just don't have the time right now to go deeper for a fan fic. Hopefully down the road I can...

No to foot worship but yes to boot worship.

Okay, I admit this is purely me injecting myself into the character here. Had my toes sucked once, and it was simply not for me. I don't like my feet touched at all. I consequently, don't like touching anyone elses feet either. That would a form of extreme punishment for me. But boot worship? If the Dom was wearing Doc's, hell yeah, I'd kiss that boot as long it wasn't covered in dog crap. There's something about being on the floor kissing his boot that gets me all sorts of tingly. Can't explain it, but it's there.

Yes to saran wrap but no to mummification.

Here's one where I wish I had a lot more time at my disposal to put more subtleties in the story. I'm very temperature sensitive and hate to sweat, but for some reason saran wrap appeals to me. I think I just like the way it looks and feels, and even sounds when it squeaks a little. And it can be applied in small sections of the body. Mummification seems more overwhelming to me.

I'm not overly claustrophobic, but being mummified creeps me out, so I went with my gut on these two. They might not make sense, but again, a kink list is very personalized. It doesn't really have to make sense, just fit that person's likes and dislikes. Once more, I injected my personality into this Bella.

No to beating but yes to riding crops, paddles and whips.

This is a tricky one. This Bella is not into pain, but a little bit of pain administered at the right time is insanely hot. A riding crop on the clit, on the ass or breasts I've been told is a staple in BDSM play for most couples, so there was no way I was going to leave this out. The feeling of a palm striking those spots is very arousing for me, so I can only imagine it being more intense from these impliments. Same thing with the paddles and whips. They kind of lent themselves in the same direction, but from talking to other people in the lifestyle, reading and, yes, even fantasizing about it, there's a difference between having these things done, or even being flogged, from being beaten. A light beating would be fine with this Bella, but she's not into pain. She wants the erotic nature of serving her Dom to be released out of her. Beating is not her thing.

Branding OK as long as it was "Temporary and depending on how it’s done would be okay. Nothing permanent."

Even a "temporary" branding will leave scarring and will pretty much never heal w/out a trace. It's a safer bet to always assume any branding will be permanent to a certain degree.


This is probably my inexperience coming through here, but I was thinking along the lines of markers like Sharpies, or even hickies, pinching where there's a temporary mark, or with a paddle that has his initials grooved into it. Henna tattoes even would be along these lines or tannning his intials somewhere onto her body. That's what I meant on this kink list here. I apologize if I was misunderstanding what this meant on the list.

Last but not least--"Will you please make a kink list for Edward and post that as well."

 
The answer for now is going to be no. I'm not going to even begin to pretend I could do a Dom's kink list justice. I'm still learning about this lifestyle and am not confident enough to do something like that yet. Maybe down the road in a few months I could go back and do that, but for now, I'll have to decline. Sorry. I figure you would have a better imagination anyway coming up with might be on his list. Besides, the story's told from his POV, so we're in his head. We're not in hers, so I thought her kink list would give us better insights into who she is. Thank you to all of you that brought these issues to my attention. I was happy to address them and clear up any confusion. :D

Chapter 8 Cuffs Teaser

Teaser time...

Chapter 8: Knotted


She lives an hour away.

I have no right to be pissed about it, but I am.

Constantly.

That’s an hour we waste trying to get to each other.

I’m clawing at my hair as I drive over, ready to surprise her.

I haven’t seen her in three days.

Three dragging, tiring, mind-numbing days.

I’m going out of my mind.

I call her constantly, text and generally make myself a pain in the ass.

She’s ever gracious about it, responding enthusiastically, but I’m sure she’s sick to death of my pathetic ass being nothing but a nuisance.

I speak to her, and it’s like the air moves through my stagnant lungs again.

I have no idea what she’s done to me, but I’m so wrapped up in her, I can barely function at this point.

Yes, I go to work, get the jobs done. It’s always temporary, since I roam to a different location whenever I’m needed somewhere else, but my heart’s not in it anymore.

I glance at my gift on the seat next to me and drive a little faster.

Chapter 7 Cuffs inspiration

I know I already asked in my a/n for this chapter if anyone else had seen Exit to Eden, but I can't help it. I have to share this scene (and I've shared it on my facebook group before as well). I watched this over and over before writing this chapter. It inspired portions of it.

If you haven't seen it, I don't know what to tell you. It's a silly comedy, but there are moments I adored. I used to hide the VCR tape (that's how old this movie is!) in my bedroom so my kids wouldn't inadvertently get ahold of it. At one point I got rid of it (no, it did not break from overuse *snickers*) so now I keep thinking I need to buy it on DVD or something. Until then, I'll just keep watching this scene. And, man, Paul Mercurio has a nice backside.

Unfortunately, it's not a youtube video, so I couldn't embed it into this post. Sorry about that. Couldn't find it on youtube. Probably for the best anyway since it's not safe for work. (THAT WAS YOUR WARNING, PEOPLE. OPEN WITH CAUTION AND NOT AROUND CHILDREN!)

http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1345126/exit_to_eden_elliots_bondage_scene/

I really wish the quality was better and also that they'd used some real chains, rather than the joke of restraints he was in, but meh. You get the point. It's about accepting desires and fantasies, and sometimes that's the hardest part to overcome--our mind, our conditioning to think something's bad simply because it's not the norm or maybe others perceive it that way.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, these are the anal beads and ben wah balls he used on her in this chapter:




Yes, I know, these are the cheap kind, but I've found I like the way these move on the string much better than the silicone ones that are stationary. There's nothing like that movement inside of you during intercourse. Delicious is maybe a term that would come close, but it's not quiet to the level of amazing that this is. Especially when it rolls across that G-spot. I dare you to be able to keep quiet when that's going on, and don't even get me started on how anal sex is more intense with beads that are moving simultaneously inside both the ass and vagina. Seriously can't say enough about how mind-blowing this is.

These anal beads aren't quite what I have, and I had trouble finding a pic online. Imagine them looking just like the ben wah balls but several of them along the line of the nylon string.

Chapter 7 teaser for Cuffs

There's nothing better than a tease... Well, except the real thing. Sorry, this is all I've got for ya for now. ;D

Chapter 7: Tilted
 
All week long, the only thing I can think about is that taste. She has me hard all the time.

I call her sporadically throughout the day, probably keeping her from being productive at work, but I can’t seem to find it in me to care.

I need to hear her—need to know she’s mine, and that she’s dying to see me again too.

Her weeknights were already spoken for, and like an ass, I complain about it, even though I’m the one that told her we’d only scene on weekends, since that was my standard set up with previous subs.

Already it’s not enough.

“Fuck—that’s pretty,” I say, prepping my playroom for her.

Tonight she’s coming to my place.

I lean in and inhale deeply.

Leather and Bella. Fucking lovely.

The only thing it’s missing is our come.

To be rectified shortly.

I pull out my phone and read through our last few texts.

Birth control was an issue we had to work out, but it should be fine.

I stare at the rubbers sets aside. God, I hate those shitty things, but for her, I’ll do it.

My hands run through my hair, and I pace.

Shouldn’t she be here already?

This is why I usually go to my sub’s. I hate waiting.

Patience is uglier than any four letter word I’ve ever heard.

Ding, ding, ding . . .

The doorbell catches my attention, and I walk, I don’t run, but in a very quick way, to get the door.

As I open the door, the most amazing aroma hits me.

My mouth drops open. “Oh my God, that’s got my name and my hard on written all over it.”

Chapter 6 Cuffs goodies (her kink list)

One of the things that helped me write this chapter was looking at several kink lists, and, yes, I was ignorant of what some things were. I had to look at a glossary, so if you're like me and curious for more info, here's the glossary I used:

http://www.differentequals.com/glossary.html

Now that we've got that out of the way. Let's talk about Bella's kink list she handed over...

Here's one of the checklists I used quite a bit and the majority of the list below is from this website, though I did remove a few that had absolutely no bearing on this story:

http://latches.webslaves.com/checklist.htm

Here we go--Bella's instructions and her list so they could make sure they were compatible:

Directions:

Rating Scale
0 Utterly no desire to do that activity and don’t like doing it (in fact, may loath it) and ordinarily would object to doing it, but you would permit the Dominant to do it if they really wanted it (sometimes called a soft limit)
1 Don’t want to do or like to do this activity, but wouldn’t object it if was asked of you
2 Willing to do this activity, but it has no special appeal for you
3 Usually like doing this activity, at least on an irregular/occasional basis
4 You like doing this activity and would like to experience it on a regular basis
5 Is a wild turn-on for you and you would like it as often as possible

Note any additional information or nuances which might be important for your Dom to know in the comments section.
There is intentionally some overlap between categories. Unless otherwise stated, the sub is the recipient/target of the activity
