For my ‘comeback’ to Saturday Spankings, I’m going to start teasing you with snippets from Always Protected: Pillar in the Snow, the 60,000 word novel that came from the original Corbin’s Bend short story Pillar in the Snow. The characters have changed, as has the community, but I think you’ll love Kace & Falcon. This week, meet Kace.
Kace glanced at his laptop which sat next to the phone. This could be important. Ever since his parents called him an abomination for being gay and he’d left for college, Kace had not had a home. He’d lived in the dorms through college and in whatever apartment Falcon rented afterward. All his life, he’d dreamed of having a home, a place to hang pictures knowing they would never be moved again. A place that no matter when Falcon came home, it would be to a warm, welcoming space. And most important—somewhere where they didn’t have to hide their relationship.
For years the two of them had discussed buying a place. They had the money for it, but it had never gone to the top of their priority list. And probably wouldn’t have, if Kace hadn’t found that article on a website.
Kace & Falcon have been in a relationship for thirteen years. With Falcon in the military, they've spent more time apart than together. Since they live in off-base housing, Kace hides who he is. When he finds out about Elan Isle, he's excited. Especially when he finds out that not only will their domestic discipline lifestyle be accepted, but that he and Falcon are welcomed for who they are. They no longer have to hide.
Falcon has protected Kace since the night they met. Seeing his love become emboldened by their new town is electrifying. So much so that he decides to come home for good.
Kace knows having Falcon home all the time will be difficult, but he thinks it will be due to his partner missing his life in the military. He has no idea the difficulties will be his. Worries he’s never voiced pop up and desires he’s never considered become all important. While Falcon has more patience than anyone he knows, Kace fears that this desire might be the final straw.
If you're a Corbin's Bend Pride fan, you might remember the short story Pillar in the Snow. This is that short story, given full life as a novel with new characters and a different kink community.
