You always hurt the one you love…..
Sometimes without even remotely intending to. I did this recently while having dinner with two of my dearest friends and I didn’t even know until a day later. Without going into specific detail it came down to me going on about a topic I wanted their advice on. I had no idea my issue would trigger one of their own and lead to heartache.
It took a couple of phone calls and some explanatory discussion to clear things up. And when all was said and done, both Nickki and Jean realized what really had happened and how my talking was not some innuendo about them but me just being very open about myself. So, naturally I not only cleared that up but apologized as well for hurting them, unintentional as it may have been.
After all was formally settled I became upset with myself. While my words were not about them, I should have realized that what I was saying could very well affect them negatively…...kind of like telling someone with a serious eating disorder about this great meal you just had; not malicious but more cluelessly insensitive. Add to this that I love these people very much and factor in my submissive personality and, well……………. out pops the guilt, and in a big way.
Fortunately life neatly provided an opportunity for resolution in the form of one additional follow-up call with Nickki. At the end I confessed my self recrimination and while acknowledging that I appreciated her understanding and forgiveness, I had a serious favor to ask:
Given our arrangement, would she please be kind enough to seriously punish me for hurting her and her wife?
While not angry with me since the incident was resolved, she did understand my request and said she would have no problem giving me a serious, separate, and hard spanking for it in the near future. I thanked her sincerely for that gracious concession.
I knew Nickki wasn’t mad at me, and I knew she understood how the misunderstanding occurred, but I also knew she would not have any objection to spanking me for it anyway. You see, she loves me too……..and you always hurt the one you love. It’s just that now it will be her turn…...and the pain will be more physical than emotional, more intentional than accidental, and directed to one very specific place that won’t be my heart. And since Nickki, (and Jean too,) tend to love their friends deeply and unconditionally, I have no doubt that Nickki will deliver….with love…. a spanking that burns just as warmly as their affection.
