Here is another little bit from Guardian Island. It’s getting very close to the edits being done… I’m excited!
Guardian Island — excert #2
Sienna looked up to find Jade lurking in the doorway. She had the brush in hand but seemed to hesitate to go any further. She hadn’t yet changed into the common tunics and leggings that the compound wore, so everything about her was dark. From her midnight-hair to her black jeans and t-shirt, she was oddly out of place. Still, there was something about her that was almost too familiar. Catching those blue eyes confirmed it. Sienna was being drawn to her, almost as if… no, Sienna broke off the thought. It wasn’t right. She couldn’t. She was the leader, and Jade, her nova. Plus, she was a woman, and that just complicated things.
With a frown, Sienna pushed the thoughts to the back of her mind and reached out to Jade, beckoning her closer with her fingers. Jade hesitated a moment before her face became hardened. With determination, she practically marched to Sienna and pushed the brush at her.
Sienna rose an eyebrow, but took the brush, setting it on the chair next to her. “Are you going to fight me, Jade?”
Jade stiffened but only shrugged.
“Tell me what you are thinking. Are you just trying to appease me? Do you think yourself deserving? Perhaps you are just curious?”
“I… I don’t know. This is stupid.”
Sienna stood and gently touched Jade’s cheek, forcing their eyes to meet. “Is it?”
“Yes,” Jade spat. “If it makes you feel better about yourself to beat me, then fine. I can take it.”
“This isn’t about beating, Jade. It’s not even about pain or punishment. It’s about submission. Do you understand that?”
For a moment, Jade’s eyes clouded in a clear sign of confusion. She didn’t admit it, and Sienna instinctively knew she couldn’t, not yet, but as her face again took on that protective mask of indifference, it was crystal clear to Sienna. Jade didn’t understand their way. She would have to be taught, and as her guardian, it would be Sienna’s job to make sure she was instructed correctly.
“Alright. Tell me what you think is going to happen, Jade.”
Again, confusion flashed across Jade’s face as if she wasn’t expecting to be asked that question. She took a long moment to answer, and Sienna patiently waited until she admitted, “You’re going to hit my backside with the flat of that brush in some vain attempt to get to me agree that you’re superior to me and that I’m helpless.”
“So, you don’t think you deserve a spanking?”
“You’re the one holding me prisoner.”
“I told you, you were free to leave, yet you are the one who opted to bring me the hairbrush.”
Jade shifted from foot to foot. “Maybe I’m a little curious. I want to see what your island has to offer before I make up my mind to leave. You made it clear the only way I can stay is if I submit to you and that hairbrush.”
“Ah,” Sienna nodded. “So, you are willing to submit.”
“No, but I’m willing to try,” Jade admitted. She shifted again. “Can we get this over with?”
“Alright,” Sienna agreed. She leaned back to pick up the hairbrush and then gave Jade a slight nod. “Turn around, bend over, and put your hands on your knees,” she ordered in a soft voice.
Jade only hesitated a moment before returning the nod and assuming the position.
The agreement surprised Sienna. She was expecting more of a fight. She stood there, almost frozen for a moment as she not only digested Jade’s willingness but her position. Suddenly the tight denim pants Jade was wearing was distracting. Her backside was lush and full, and Sienna couldn’t help but picture what it would look like beneath the clothing. Her heart rate quickened, and she found her mouth dry.
She didn’t understand at first, but then, as she felt her underclothes suddenly become damp, she did. Jade, especially in her willingness to submit, was turning her on. Her mind flashed to the day before when Jade had kissed her. The action at the time had alarmed and confused her. Sienna had thought about it the whole night before. She thought it was just a fluke, but now looking down at Jade’s shapely and most inviting backside, she couldn’t help but want more.
Sienna looked down at the brush in her hand. It was about submission. It was about admitting one was wrong and seeking redemption through the pain and humiliation of a spanking, but suddenly this felt wrong. Jade needed to know the rules. She needed to understand them, but she didn’t, not yet. She hadn’t been given the opportunity. Sienna had a duty, yet she couldn’t… it had suddenly become too hard.
