Hey, Weekend Writing Warriors!
Julie’s having a bad afternoon…
It was just a mark of this horrible, dingy downtown apartment that the damned thing went off whenever it could, which was usually several times a day. Grabbing one of their kitchen chairs, she dragged it over underneath the alarm and stood up on it, hitting the reset button several times. It usually worked for Matt, but it did no good for her. Screaming loudly as it shrieked even louder, she hopped off the chair and found a hammer. Standing back up, she closed her eyes and slammed the hammer into the box. It blessedly went silent. Sighing with relief to have the sound gone, she hopped off the chair and sat down. Only to open her eyes and see pieces of plastic lying on the floor.
Life-long residents of Mesa, Arizona, both of Matt & Julie Renton’s conservative families turned on them when their discipline lifestyle became public knowledge. Months after being fired from his job, Matt was just getting by doing day labor. Worried over Julie’s stress level, he set his hopes on getting into a new housing development in Colorado called Corbin’s Bend where they could be themselves and his lovely wife could finally relax.
Combined with Matt’s natural ability to find the most unique forms of discipline he could imagine, Julie found herself at home in their new community filled with wonderful residents who were nice, friendly, and the kind of people she could open up to.
Tried, true, and tested before they even reached Colorado, Matt and Julie worked hard to keep their relationship strong even as they started a new life. With a new job for Matt and complete acceptance from the community for Julie, they began to feel that this just might be where they belonged. Especially when the community’s welcome basket arrived with a little surprise.
This volume also includes the short story Eau de Guilt
Brittany broke a little rule. If she didn’t find a way to ease her boyfriend Trevor into hearing about it, she might not sit down for weeks. Prepared to soften him up with every one of his favorite dishes, it never occurred to her that in Corbin’s Bend, this kind of thing had a way of coming out, even if you didn’t want it to. Now the only thing left was a discipline spanking and it just might turn her world upside down.
