“What if you said no?”

We went to dinner with one kid in tow. I had hoped we were going out alone. It was a noisy “family” restaurant with 1,945 televisions. I counted. We were sat at a square table which means no booth snuggling. The a/c was on high enough for a polar bear. My chicken was breaded with salt. blech I was not succeeding in keeping the Bitch at bay. I was fighting the tears. I did eventually pull my chair around the corner so I could be closer to him and he could lay his hand on my leg. I just needed his touch. That alone is so soothing. I don’t know why but hand holding doesn’t cut it.

When we got home I was hoping he would tell me to put my pj’s on but instead he said “Go get things ready for a bath.” I did so and I wasn’t sure if he was coming in or not because he doesn’t like to take baths. He did, though, and he held me and washed me.

I asked him if this part was easy for him meaning telling me to go get a bath ready and surprisingly he said “No. I was worried. What if you said no?”. He said he had tried a few things over the last couple days to pull me out of this and they didn’t work.

So this still isn’t easy for him and I bet the times it is the hardest is when I am in a pissed off funk. That is when I want him to go against his nature and push me. He has improved a lot so time will tell just how far he can stretch that ability. Once again I have to remember that he is growing too.

  1. I could have written this several times over. Sometimes when I feel the funk building inside me Sir pushing me in a different direction is exactly what I need to keep it from bubbling over. I have said ‘no’ before. Thankfully he has mastered the ability to pull me back, even at my worst. Best wishes to you! -belle

  2. You know Princess, I love this post.
    So many things to love about it.
    I love that you manage to relate the whole story with that much humour (I would have given up on counting TVs much sooner than you 😉 ).
    I love that he surprised you. I love that you allowed yourself to be surprised.
    I love that he feels OK being vulnerable with you, telling you he doesn’t have it all figured out, but he’s trying.
    Basically, I love the LOVE that is pouring from this post.

  3. The part about wondering if you would comply is what my daddy has said about me. The gentle daddies need our submission to make them stronger dominants. When I comply, he feels his authority grow. Good job being his encouragement when you were struggling. That’s the heart of D/s.
