Way back when..., continues

I'm going back and telling a story from the old days. You can go back here to catch the beginning.

I remembered Tom kissing me good-by the next morning but with no particular reason to get up I had rolled over and snuggled down to sleep as late as I wanted. I had just dragged myself up and had my coffee when the phone rang.

“Get dressed! I won two free buffet luncheons at the casino last night. I’ll pick you up at 12:00. We’ll eat and spend the afternoon at the craps tables.”

I loved the luncheons at the casino and at that time gambling was one of my favorite past times! Tom’s rules drove me crazy. But like a good girl I told Sue. “I can’t go. I’m exhausted, really. Tom wanted me to stay home today. Can’t we go tomorrow?

“Exhausted my ass! No we can’t go tomorrow, the tickets are for today. Now get ready.”

“Okay, sure, I’ll go but we have to be home before 5:00. Tom really didn’t want me going out today and he’s going to be ticked if he finds out.”

“Fine, anything you say but I have to tell you, you are starting to pay way too much attention to what Tom says. You need to get over that.”

Easy for her to say. Back then, even more so than today, Tom spanked hard! Now there was no way on earth I was letting Sue know that. But although I liked to go out and have my fun, spankings were something I really tried to avoid.

But I went, of course, and we had a wonderful time. I was even having a pretty good streak and won over $700 that afternoon. We pulled into the driveway just before 5:00. That was the earliest Tom got home, it was usually closer to 6:00 but I still peeked into the garage with my heart pounding. Tom’s car was not home and I breathed a sigh of relief.

Sue came in and joined me for another glass of wine and picked up a topic I really wanted her to leave alone. “What’s with Tom anyway? Why would you be so worried if he knew you had gone out today? Are you some kinda of prisoner or what?”

“It’s not that… well, I mean he worries when I get tired and crabby so he told me to stay home. I usually don’t mind doing what he asks. Honest Sue, he’s the best man in the world but… well, sometimes it’s hard doing everything he wants me to. I have to be creative. He wanted me to stay home. I wanted to go. I’ll tell him I stayed home – he’s happy. I got to go anyway – I’m happy. This way we both win.”

“That’s not really the way I see it.” Tom said coming out of the bedroom.

I thought I was going to have a coronary! I truly couldn’t speak. My heart was lurching in my chest and I wasn’t able to make a sound.

“Where the hell did you come from?” Sue asked seeing I was totally incapable.

“I had the car serviced this afternoon and they drove me home. I came home a little early to get to spend some time with Cassie. But she wasn’t here.” Tom hadn’t taken his eyes off me.

“Yeah well, that’s my fault. I really needed her today. I had to talk her into it. Sorry. I didn’t know you were coming home so early.” Sue seemed to sense I needed saving although at the time she didn’t know from what.

“Cassie’s old enough to make her own choices.” Tom answered her, still looking at me. “I don’t think she made a very good choice today.”

“Oh what’s the big friggin’ deal? We went to lunch – get over it!” Sue told him.

“The big deal was,” Tom said, still not looking away “I asked her to stay home and she said she would. Cassie, I’m like to speak with you alone. Would you wait in the bedroom while I show Sue out?”

I still hadn’t regained the power of speech. Clutching my bag I left the room without glancing at Sue. Sue was angry. “You’re sending her to her room? What is your problem?” Sue continued telling Tom what she thought of him for a few minutes before Tom was able to get her moving.

Tom was escorting her to the door even as she was speaking. Totally ignoring her rant he was saying “I’m sure Cassie will call you tomorrow. Give my best to Steve.”

Sue didn’t like the ‘Here’s your hat, what’s your hurry’ routine but finding herself outside she stormed to her car and yanked open her door before turning back to Tom standing at the door.

“Let me tell you one thing you big jerk, Cassie’s been married to one asshole. I won’t see her in that situation again. If I ever find out you ever lay one finger on her I’ll… I’ll…”

Will you get your ass in this car and drive?” I hissed from my hiding place in the back seat of Sue’s car. I had startled Sue nearly as badly as Tom had startled me earlier but she recovered quickly.

She looked back at Tom and spat out “You’re an ass. You better have Cassie call me.”

Sue waited until she turned the corner and was out of sight of the house before she spoke. “You scared the crap outta me! What are you doing?”

“Momentarily avoiding confrontation.” I answered.

“So where we going?” Sue wanted to know. “My house?”

“No, too close.” I closed down my mind. I didn’t want to imagine Tom coming into the bedroom and finding I had made a break for it. The open window wouldn’t leave much doubt. “Drive me to Westly.” I told Sue, “I think I need a hotel for a few nights.”

LMAO... please write more ASAP. :)

I love your stories!

Cassie, what are you doing to Tom, you'll worry him sick.
I wouldn't want to be in your panties when he gets you home, sitting down won't be an option for a while.
You'll get no sympathy from me.
Love and warm fraternal hugs,

Well the only solace I guess is that this happened a while ago. Cause I don't think you could take it now! I bet he was fit to be tied! Can't wait to read the rest of your story...

oh Cassie're gonna get it!

Cassie said...

It takes a while to tell everything but I'm writing on it a little every day. Glad you like it!

It does seem much funnier these days than it did back then!

Oh Paul,
You do have a way of putting things. I knew I would get no sympathy from you. You may be my big brother but I think you and Tom must have been twins separated at birth!

Its coming Abby, I promise.

Oh C,
You are absolutely right I would never pull such a stunt now. I don't think I could take it.

My baby! I'm terrible afraid you are exactly right.

Well we know you survived but can't wait to hear what Tom did next.


Katy said...

I can't imagine making a real big break for it! I do attempt to keep my butt on the far side of my man when I know I'm in trouble, but I can't imagine making a real break for it...

I did survive but I had my doubts for a while.

I was scared and bolted then I was scared to return. Not my best plan.
