Smoke and Flames

He walked into the roadhouse, his eyes scanning the clientele in the smoke filled room. When he spotted her she was sitting there smoking a cigarette and talking to the man next to her.  He could feel the hackles rise on the back of his neck.  He walked over to her, grabbed her off the stool and hauled her out of there.

“I am going to flame your ass” he said as he was walking out of the door.  Katy got that tingly feeling deep in her tummy at those words.  This is exactly what she had been hoping for and wanting for some time.

Jason was a great bear of a man but his looks betrayed him. He was a gentle soul. He didn’t even swat flies, just shooed them out the door.  Katy had never met anyone like him.  Most of the men she knew were rough around the edges.  They were lumberjacks as were their father’s before them.  Most of them had never been more than a hundred miles from Creekside.  Women were loved and respected but expected to take care of house, home and them.  A woman was expected to open her own door, pull out her own chair and do her own heavy lifting so when Katy went out with Jason for the first time she was overwhelmed with his gentlemanly manners.

He had bought the hardware store in town a couple of years ago.  Creekside was a small sleepy community on the Oregon/Washington border.  Not much exciting happened here so when an “outsider” bought a local store there was much speculation about the why’s and wherefore’s.  No one came to Creekside to have a life, they left Creekside to get a life.  So Jason was an anomaly.  The stories flew fast and furious; He was a fugitive, or an ex-con, or someone running away from “you name it” and it was attributed to him.  After a few months, he finally was able to convince the town folk he was just here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world in which he had lived.  He was retired military and had spent many tours of duty in places he never thought he would and saw things he never wanted to see ever again.

Katy had been born and raised in Creekside.  She never knew her father, he didn’t stick around once he found out her mother was pregnant with her.  Her mother never recovered from her birth and she had been raised by her grandparents.  Her mother passed when she was five and so her memories were few but she had a good life.  Her grandparents were loving but strict so when the first guy came along and  filled her head with thoughts of freedom and big city life, she ran off with him. 

Unfortunately, she soon realized that freedom came with a price.  Being too proud to admit her mistake, she stuck it out living from hand to mouth in a run-down apartment in a city she no longer thought was wonderful, with a man she didn’t love and who clearly didn’t love her based on the emotional abuse he dealt out daily.  Two years into this existence, Sully didn’t come home one night.  The next day a policeman came to the door and delivered the news she knew she would one day hear.  Sully had been drunk and picked a fight with some burly guys.  During the skirmish he fell back, hit his head and died on the way to the hospital.  She didn’t mourn his passing.  When she called her grandparents to tell them, they urged her to come back to Creekside.  She took their advice, came home and never looked back. 

She dated now and again but until Jason came along no one made much of an impression on her.  She had heard it all before and knew that what she had was better than what she’d had with Sully.  Jason was different. She loved how gentle he was and how well he treated her and others.  Even in lovemaking, he handled her as if she was made of porcelain.  She wished he was a little more dominant but she knew what was important in life and she respected and loved him. So when he asked her to marry him she said yes.  They settled into the home in which she was raised.  

For the most part, Katy was happy.  But sometimes, Jason was so easygoing that Katy would get frustrated that nothing she did seem to rile him. She wanted a little excitement, she wanted to spar with him.  She remembered her granny could get her grandpa so fired up and mad as a wet hen, they were always scrapping with each other.  She knew it was never for real because there were always smiles and laughter.  There were times though when Grandpa would be serious and granny would back down. He never raised a hand to either one of them but he would threaten to give her a good hiding if she didn’t behave. She learned early on his word was law.  She spent many an hour standing in the corner or being grounded because she had disobeyed or sassed him. 

One day she sat down with Jason and told him just how she felt.  He listened closely and told her he had seen so much violence he didn’t want to experience it ever again.  She told him she was not talking about violence just about some good old arguing or getting his dander up.  He said that was not his way and why couldn’t she be happy with that.  She told him she just wanted to add a little spice to their life.

After that, she considered it her mission in life to do whatever she could to get him to budge.  Purposely, she would do things she hoped would irritate him.  Things like not doing the laundry, or leaving the car with no gas on days she knew he needed it to get somewhere.  He seemed to take it all in stride.  She finally just gave up. She loved him and she knew what he was like when she married him so she  read more and more exciting romance novels and fantasized in her head that Jason was the hero and she the damsel in distress.

Then one day everything seemed to change.  She was no longer just acting bitchy.  She was bitchy. Nothing he did pleased her; she was sweet as pie one minute and a complete shrew the next.  He tried his best and would stay at the store for longer and longer periods of time.  He was never sure just who he would be coming home to and even if it was his sweet loving Katy he was never sure just how long she would be around.

 He looked so ragged that his long time employee, Sadie, asked if anything was wrong and if she could help.

“ I don’t know what’s wrong but Katy just doesn’t seem to be herself.  She is always grouchy and mean”.

Sadie said giggling “when I get like that Jake just takes me over his knee and after a good tanning, things just seemed to straighten right out”

Jason was aghast and said he could never do anything like that.

“Well, I’m just telling you what works for us.  You’ll figure out what to do”

Jason went home that night and Katy was as sweet as pie.  She’d made his favorite dinner of meat loaf and mashed potatoes with gravy, and an apple pie for dessert. He was so happy, until bedtime.  When he suggested it was time for bed, Katy the Terrible emerged.

 “Who do you think you are telling me when it’s time to go to bed?  I’ll go to bed when I damn well please”.

The tirade continued until he just turned around and left the room.  She followed him continuing her harangue.  Suddenly, Sadie’s advice came to mind and he figured what the hell did he have to lose.  He turned back to her and without a word pulled her over his hip and swatted her backside.

She kicked his shins, so he gave her a few more.  When he let her up, she was silent.
“I don’t care if you come to bed or not but I don’t want to hear another word.  I have finally had it”

He went to bed and was astounded when the next thing he knew she was beside him.  She cuddled into him and began telling him how much she loved him and she was so sorry for her bad behavior.  He told her all was forgiven and kissed her good night.  Katy wasn’t ready for sleep.  He had awakened her senses and she wasn’t going to sleep until those desires were sated.  It was the best sex they had in months.

Jason swatted her more often now and each time her hiney got that little tingle. They were having more sex than they had been and she was enjoying it.  What she wasn’t enjoying were her mood swings.  When she finally went to the doctor he confirmed her suspicions.  She was menopausal.  She told him she was much too young and went on her way.  After a few more weeks she couldn’t stand herself any longer and went on hormone replacement therapy.  It worked beautifully and she was back to her old self.  Unfortunately as she settled out, the spanks disappeared and so did the great sex.

‘I have to get that back’, she thought to herself.  ‘What can I do that will really get Jason to sit up and take notice’? 

So once again she began doing things to irritate him.  One of the things he hated when they met was that she smoked.  He finally persuaded her to give them up and she hadn’t smoked in years.  She bought a pack of cigarettes and although she never lit up, she would light one and let it burn in the ashtray and then leave the evidence.  The cigarette pack was left in plain sight.  When Jason saw them he grabbed them and her and threatened to “spank her bottom until it was smoking hot” if she started smoking again.

‘What’s a girl to do?’. She thought.

 The next Friday, she left him a note to meet her at the roadhouse.  They needed a night out.  She sat at the bar and watched the door. When she spotted Jason she immediately grabbed a cigarette and lit it.  She had been chatting to Jamie Henderson, a friend from high school, but Jason didn’t know that.  So she really played it up and by the time Jason spotted her she could see she had succeeded.

When he got her home, he pulled off her jeans and her panties and hauled her over his knee. He “flamed her ass” and other parts that night and many nights thereafter.

Have you ever?

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, surely, I can't look that old.  Well, if so, you will love this:

  I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with  a new dentist.  I noticed his DDS diploma which bore his full name.  Suddenly I remember a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name that had been in my high school class some thirty odd years ago.  Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on way back then?  Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought.

This balding, gray haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate. After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan City High School

"Yes,  I did.  I am a Mustang he said as he gleamed with pride.

"When did you graduate?" I asked

He answered, "In 1975. Why do you ask?

" You were in my class," I exclaimed.

"He looked at me closely and then, that




Wow, I graduated high school in 1962.  I don't even want to think about what my classmates look like.   Myself , I have a portrait of Dorian Grey in my closet so I look the same.

See Yourself

This link  is something I think we all need to watch and take to heart.   We don't realize just how critical we are of ourselves and how others see us is usually not what we think. It's something to also pass on to our young daughters who are always so critical of themselves.  

JIC I didn't do it right,  I've also included the address below    

  • Photo

Attitude plays an important part also.  So I guess I am just vertically challenged.

The gauntlet has been thrown and a couple of us are challenging each other to shed some weight.  We have a weekly Friday weigh-in and so far it hasn't been going as well as we would like.  Life keeps getting in the way.  So this week, I have really stepped up and began exercising again.  The motor home doesn't allow for a lot of floor space so, with the exception of walking,  I do my exercises in bed.  The other morning hubby was up early for an appointment and when he came back into the bedroom after his shower I was doing my tush tighteners.  I am busily counting away, not paying any attention to hubby when  suddenly the covers get thrown off and I feel a sharp swat and am told to roll over. There is hubby, with leather paddle in hand, and he started spanking me with no warm up, just hard swats, not many but boy he seems to have a lot more strength in the morning that in the evening.  Even though there weren't many,  I felt every one of them and the heat lasted more than a few seconds.  When I asked him what brought that on he said as long as I was exercising I might as well have get a full workout.  

Not only was the spanking a surprise but there wasn't any dancing afterward.  I think that's only happened once before.  Could it be he is benefitting from my reading him some blogs or having him critique some of my stories?

WHATEVER it was worked for me

A Fresh Start

Derek and his two girls, June and Lacey, had moved into the neighborhood last winter.  Derek, a widower, had accepted a transfer in the hopes they could begin again.  Jillian had been a wonderful wife and mother but had succumbed after a long battle with cancer.  Her passing had taken its toll on them and Derek thought it would be best if they were closer to family.  June was 4 and Lacey 6 when Jillian was diagnosed and watched as their mother went from a vibrant force in their lives to someone they visited in a hospice center and who no longer bore any resemblance to her former self.  When she passed, it was both a blessing and a curse.  Derek was wise enough to get them to counseling early and it seemed to have helped them deal with Jillian’s passing and their ability to move forward with their lives.  He hoped the move was another step in that direction. 

Both his parents and sister lived in Oakwood, a suburb of Portland.  Derek had actually grown up there but after college the lure of a big city was much too enticing and he took a job in San Francisco.  He rented an apartment and bumped into Jillian in the elevator his first week there.  It was love at first sight for Derek but Jillian had given him a run for his money.  When she finally allowed him to catch her they married and lived in the city until she became pregnant with Lacey.  They bought a home and moved to Marin County and lived the good life until that horrible visit to check out a problem she was having with headaches. Tests revealed a brain tumor and their life was a series of one downward day after another.  Surgery was not an option and nothing else slowed the growth of the tumor. 

So when the job opened up in Portland he jumped at it.  He was ready for a fresh start and the girls needed family around. The company sent him out to find a house and instead of going alone he took the girls.  This was going to be their new home and they should have a say in the decision.  His sister set him up with a realtor friend and he found a gently used cozy three bedroom home not too far from his parent’s home.  It was in a good neighborhood, lots of families with kids, and Lacey could walk to school.

So here they were facing their first summer in Oakwood.  The girls would be out of school from June 10 to August 29th and Derek had no idea how he was going to fill their time.  Neither one of them wanted to go to camp.  He didn’t want to impose on his parents for the whole summer and his sister worked.  He decided to place an ad for a housekeeper/nanny in the local paper.  He couldn’t believe how many responses he received.  When he narrowed down the field he had the girls sit in on the interviews to watch the interaction between them. 
After a thorough reference check he settled on Shannon Fielding.  She was a substitute school teacher and a freelance writer.  She was in her mid thirties and would be a good fit for the girls - young enough to relate to and respond to their needs but old enough to know how to handle the wheedling and cajoling that went on when they were trying to get their own way.  It would also be nice to have help with the laundry, cooking and cleaning.  He was exhausted from being mommy and daddy. 

Shannon was a gem.  He enjoyed living in a house he didn’t have to worry about cleaning, and taking a clean shirt out of the drawer that he didn’t put there and best of all sitting down to a home cooked meal that he didn’t cook. The girls were happy and carefree. As the summer wore on he found himself paying closer attention to Shannon. He wasn’t interested in a relationship but it would be nice to have dinner with a grown up.  He wasn’t sure if this was a good idea so he never followed up and then one day she asked if he and the girls would like to join her at a festival that was being held in the park close to the house. He agreed and they met at the park.  It was great fun riding the rides, eating junk food, playing the carnival games. He almost forgot to miss Jillian.  Somewhere along the way they met up with his sister.  She asked if the girls wanted to have a girl’s night with her.  June and Lacey loved Aunt Sarah and agreed readily.   That left Shannon and Derek alone and he invited her to have dinner with him.  She agreed.

He took her to a little Italian restaurant he loved.  It had been family owned for years and he had frequented it often when coming back to Oakwood.  It wasn’t very busy this early in the evening so they had their pick of tables.  He ordered a bottle of wine and appetizers.  As they drank they talked about their lives, their hopes and dreams.  He was surprised to find she had been married once. She explained they were both young and couldn’t resolve their differences so it ended in divorce five years later.  They didn’t have any children .  That was their major unresolved  difference - she was ready, he was not.  She said she came to understand it was because he was really still a child himself.  She said if she ever got married again the man would have to be an adult-  a strong man not afraid to show his feminine side but able to take charge when the situation called for him to do so. 

“How about you Derek, do you think you will ever get married again?”

“I haven’t really given it much thought.  I have been so busy with Lacey and June before you came along there wasn’t much time to think about me” he told her.

She told him it was like anything in life.  If it’s meant to happen, it will and usually when you are least expecting it.  She told him she found that making long range plans was a waste of time.  Something else always came up and she had learned to go along with the flow rather than beating her head against a wall.

After another bottle of wine and dinner, they noticed the wait staff was cleaning up.  He was surprised to look at his watch and see the time. 

“I best get you to your car Shannon.  I’ve taken up too much of your time already. You should have said something”

“To tell you the truth we were having such a wonderful evening I didn’t even think of the time”.

“Maybe we should do this again,” he said. “ I don’t want you to feel obligated though.  Just because you work with us doesn’t mean you also have to keep me company outside of work hours”

“I would love it Derek and I don’t feel the least bit obligated to do so”

They had dinner together three or four times over the course of the summer. Each time they shared more of themselves with each other. They were still in the friends stage and Shannon found she wanted to take it further but decided to wait until she was no longer in his employ.
September rolled around and she had not heard from Derek  so she decided to call him on the pretense of checking on how the children were doing.  Now that they were back in school all day, they spent most afternoons with their grandparents until Derek came home from work.  She got his voice mail and left a message.  It was later that evening he called her and told her the kids were doing well but missing her.  She said she missed them too.  He suggested she come over on Saturday and join them for a barbecue. 

Saturday turned out to be a rainy day and the barbecue was nixed in favor of pizza. The girls were happy to see her and when it was time for their bedtime she read them a story.  They asked if she could come again and she answered that it depended on their Dad. 

“Can she Daddy?”

“I think it would be great to have her visit again” he responded.

Derek asked if she would stick around while he put the girls down and she nodded her assent. 

Shannon was in the kitchen making coffee when Derek came down. She looked as if she belonged. It startled him for a second.  They took their coffee to the living room and Derek told Shannon he didn’t want her to feel obligated to come by to visit.  She put down her coffee cup, leaned over and kissed him. When she pulled back he pulled her back in for another kiss. 

“Wow, I didn’t expect that and I guess it answers my questions about not feeling obligated”

“Yes, I’ve been wanting to do that for some time” Shannon replied.

“Me too’, he replied. ‘But I want to get a couple of things out in the open.  I don’t know what you have in mind but I want you to know my girls are a priority.  I don’t want them getting hurt and thinking you are in their life and then you’re not.  They’ve been through that once and I don’t think they could deal with that again.  So I want you to be sure right now before anything gets started.”
She started to say something and he quieted her. 

“I am not finished.  The other thing you have to know is that I am an old-fashioned guy and believe in old-fashioned ideas.  I guess I’m a throwback.  I will be the head of my household.  I know we haven’t even reached that stage yet but I want you to know up front what kind of marriage I expect.  Things will not be a lot different than what they were this summer.  I am not a micro manager but there will be consequences when things are “out of sync”. 

Shannon piped up with “like when you lectured me on the safety of holding the children’s hands when they crossed the street, or the time I forgot to turn off the stove when we went to the park”.

“Exactly, he said.  Except the consequence then was a lecture, if we marry, the consequence may well be a trip over my knee”.

“Oooohhh” she said squirming in her chair.  “I love the girls and I have had romantic feelings toward you almost from the beginning.  My thinking is to not include the girls into our relationship until we are sure.  We can continue as before with my coming over occasionally for a visit as a friend.  Our dating will be just between us.  As for the other stuff, that’s food for thought.  If you need an answer today, it will be no.  But I promise to be open minded.  What is your opinion?”

“I think the idea about keeping our relationship between us for the present is a wonderful idea.  Regards to the other issue, sounds fair. 

And so began the adventures of Shannon Fielding and Derek Jansen and their two girls.

He Always

I watched something happen tonight that really makes me appreciate my husband.  Hubby, a friend and I were sitting around last evening awaiting my brother to come from work and my friend's husband to come home from a fishing trip. Her husband had left at 4:30 am.   It was now 8:00 pm, he walked in the door, right past his wife and started talking to my brother about the fishing trip.  He completely ignored his wife.  I commented to her and she told me that's what happens after 31 years.  I said no, my hubby is not like that.  She told me she noticed that.

I don't think I always deserve or appreciate his loving care and touches but I'm glad it's there. He always greets me when he returns from somewhere, he rarely passes me without a loving touch.  He is  always holding doors and chairs, opening car door and anything else.  He always compliments me on how I look, always concerned if I am even slightly unwell, always asking if there is anything I need or he can do for me.  

He shows his love for me in hundreds of every day occurrences every single day of the year.

He always loves me even when I don't love myself.  How lucky am I?

See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
