“After Ana,” along with Maren Smith’s “Mistress Mine,” is a companion piece to Ana Adored, our co-authored novel that will be available from Blushing Books in November 2014. Ana Klein, a preschool teacher’s assistant, looks for plant advice on an online site, Heaven in Horticulture. She finds Miranda Hardwick, the Mistress of the Castle, a high-end BDSM resort. While “Mistress Mine” shows Miranda and Ana enjoying their kinky side, “After Ana” gives us a glimpse into the reason they commit to each other.

 

“I’ll make you some coffee,” Ana offered, bustling to take out English muffins and assorted fruit. The sight of food made Miranda’s stomach roil.

“No, thanks.” Miranda gripped her empty mug as if afraid it would desert her. “I’m not that desperate.” She forced a smile.

“You have to eat,” Ana chided. “You promised me you’d take care of yourself. What will I do if my boss lady withers away?” She skinned a wedge of honey dew melon and punched out star-shaped chunks.

“I had some toast.” At least, she thought so. Earlier that morning, or perhaps at 2 AM when she couldn’t sleep, or the day before. Within the past twenty-four hours, at least.

Ana gave her look both affectionate and exasperated. “What did you tell me when I moved in? ‘Be honest,’ right? So it only goes one way?”

“Let’s have some respect, sassy girl.” Miranda forced her words to sound authoritative, even if the queasiness shook her inside. She felt her forehead, wondering how she could shiver and perspire at the same time.

“Bread untouched, no new plates in the dishwasher, and you’re white as sheet. Tell me another one.” Ana skimmed the tops of the English muffins with butter and a hint of cinnamon. Miranda’s favorite.

“I remember when you were obedient,” Miranda murmured, breaking into a cough. She clutched her black and white knit wrap tighter in a futile effort to get warm. The kitchen should have been warm in the mid-morning sunshine, but she couldn’t stop shaking.

Ana set the fluted china plate on the table. She shook out the wrap and rearranged it around Miranda’s shoulders, dropping a chaste kiss on the tip of her ear. “If you want me obedient, you’ll have to do something about it. Mistress dear.”

Miranda laughed, her throat croaking with the unexpected effort. She reached for her empty coffee cup before setting her hands back into her lap. “Stop topping from the bottom.”

In answer, Ana eased onto Miranda’s lap, burying her face in the long brown tresses usually pinned into a neat bun. “I miss your laugh,” she said without moving. “I’m sorry you lost your friend, but I’m worried about you. Don wouldn’t want you to stare into space all day, would he?”

Miranda stiffened, and rage swept through her frozen limbs. She pushed Ana away and stood up, trembling with anger instead of cold. She pulled her shawl tighter and lifted her shoulders in the posture that came from years of dance training. She knew, without turning her head, that Ana blinked back tears as she cupped fingers to chin. It was her instinctive reaction.

“I’m sorry, Miranda. I—“

“You didn’t know him.” She should stop talking. An eternity ago, she could have kept her composure and dignity. She could have deflected questions with a gracious but distant nod, and no one would have dared to ask more. After Ana came into her life, everything changed. She loved the girl but hated giving up her privacy. Ana had changed that, Ana with her needs and affection. Ana who demanded Miranda to be her whole self, not the Mistress persona she created for the Castle. Miranda had been Mistress Miranda Hardwick for so long that she no longer could feel her real self.

“I didn’t. But I heard what everyone said about him at the memorial, and he sounded wonderful. Kaylee said you and Don—“

“She had no right to talk about us!” Miranda pinched the bridge of her nose, trying and failing to visualize the green circle that had kept her calm throughout her professional life. She swept the shawl across her face as if that could keep the questions out. She’d built her life on privacy. She’d learned to survive.

Instead of skittering away as she might have done earlier, Ana peeled back the shawl. Slowly, carefully. Making eye contact with every motion, reassuring with slight pressure, and gentling Miranda until the older woman released the fabric. Ana cradled the shawl before gathering it up into a neat square and resting it on the back of Miranda’s now-empty chair. She leaned in, kissing away the tears spilling down Miranda’s cheeks.

“Kaylee said Don was the light of your life, and you were his. She said everyone is worried about you, and you’ve never let anyone in. I love you, Miranda. That means loving the people you love. I never got to know your friend, but I want to.”

At each word, Miranda’s erect stance softened. Ana had that effect on her, no matter how hard Miranda fought to keep her old distance. She adored Ana, this assistant preschool teacher who treated Miranda with the same gentleness she gave to small children. Miranda hadn’t realized adoring Ana would mean giving up the privacy she’d cherished all her life.

Not cherished, Miranda realized as Ana’s nimble fingers pulled back her hair and rested behind her ears. Guarded. Defended, as if losing her privacy would mean losing herself.

“I can’t,” Miranda whispered, reaching at last for the girl who had brought love into her life. “I can’t remember what he looked like. I can’t see him in my mind. When I try, I can’t get past the monitors, the beeping, the pain…”

“Come on.” As if she were the Mistress and Miranda the submissive, Ana led her to the couch. She nestled the taller woman against her shoulder. “You’re not alone anymore, remember?”

“I want to.” Ana could talk her into anything. “But I can’t.” Miranda winced as the pain in her chest tightened. The thought of opening up her grief made her wish she could climb Mount Everest instead. “I can’t, my lovely.” Ashamed of her weakness, Miranda let her head rest on Ana’s shoulder. She should take care of her girl, not the other way around. But refusing to let Ana in had almost cost her their relationship.

Ana frowned, thinking. After a moment, she brightened and jumped off the couch. “I’ll be right back,” she announced as she trotted into their bedroom.

Miranda wanted to stop her, but her sluggish brain couldn’t make her muscles obey. Ever since she’d collapsed at the news of Don’s death, nothing had worked properly. She waited on the couch, curiously desolate.

Within minutes, Ana’s cheerful voice called from the bedroom. “Ready?”

Before Miranda could answer, a seductive black and silver spangled dress appeared, complete with a gloriously pointed hat and broomstick. Miranda broke into laughter, rusty at first but swelling into gales of unrestrained mirth.

“Well? Do you like it?” Ana pranced into the room and twirled to show off the outfit. The uneven hem flew around her to reveal the state of her knickers. Or, rather, the lack of them. “You said you wanted to spank a witch. Here.” She handed Miranda a large, sturdy wooden spoon and crawled across her lap. “Get busy.”

“You cheeky thing!” Distracted, Miranda skimmed Ana’s skirt upward and squeezed the delectable rounded bottom. “What did I tell you about trying to avoid punishments?”

“That the distraction should be good and you expect great sex afterward?”

“Naughty!” Miranda gave a cough and brought the spoon downward. “Incorrigible. Next you’ll bring out a bunny…” The coldness inside of her loosened, and the warmth appearing on Ana’s cheeks made its way to her own heart.

“Every witch needs a naughty bunny,” Ana agreed, throwing her head back to grin over her shoulder. “Spank me, O Mistress Mine. And while you’re feeling validated in your dominance, tell me about the friend you loved for most of your life.”

Miranda slapped the spoon across the pinkening cheeks, but she couldn’t find her voice. When she had invited the girl to her home, she had longed for a girl to call her own.

After Ana, she realized she had things the wrong way around. She, Miranda, belonged to Ana. Now and forevermore.

Taliasman blurb:

 

Born to a destitute woodworker who wanted a son to carry on the family business, Talia grew up with one phrase on her lips: “If I had been born a boy.” If she had been born a boy, she would have been cherished, supported, and launched into the world with her father’s legacy. As only a worthless girl, she toils all day long to earn her handful of inferior grain.

Far away in the heavenly palace, Queen Vina receives a mysterious coin necklace from Nicodemus, teller of stories. Compelled by the throbbing heartbeat, she scours the earth to come across Talia, enslaved to a family who never wanted her. Rather than admit her motives, Vina purchases the girl with a sack full of gold. Furious, betrayed, and homesick, Talia endeavors to share her misery with the entire palace. Vina, afraid to confess her love, allows herself to become trapped in the role of brutal slave owner.

Talia, bred to expect nothing but misery, faces the first choice of her life. Will she accept love, even if it comes from an unlikely source? Or will she reject the one who offers her everything?

#SpankorTreat is almost here!

Maren Smith and I have a different focus for our writing. She creates lush visual settings and…um…steamy sex. I like internal dialogue. the understated, and emotions. She puts in a joke about stripper music; I take out the name of a sex toy. Our commonality, however, includes a love for spankings, discipline, and the complex interplay of one adult using dominance/submission to love another.

Putting these two voices together into one coherent narrative of ‪#‎AnaAdored‬ was challenging and exhilarating. For ‪#‎SpankorTreat‬ this weekend, you’ll see the dichotomy at its strongest. In “Mistress Mine,” Maren will show you a sneak peek of Ana and Miranda kinking things up. In “After Ana,” I’ll show you professional BDSM Mistress Miranda at her most tender and vulnerable.

Come and join the Spank or Treat fun! Details to follow. Ask for an invitation to the FB event if you haven’t already.

(And in other news…Taliasman has seven 5-star reviews already!

“If I had been born a boy, I would have followed in my father’s footsteps and become a tradesman. Because I was a girl, he sold me instead.” –Taliasman

When my mother came of age, she had three options for a career: nurse, teacher, or secretary. She became a teacher and hated it. She told me, “If I’d been a boy, I could have become an accountant, engineer, or physicist. Because I was a girl, I didn’t have choices.”

A generation later, I grew up with my own version of “If I had been born a boy.”

 

I’m visiting the Decadent blog today and offering a custom wooden spoon as a prize! Head over to read the rest of the post.
