The below spanking story is written by professional disciplinarian & switch spankee, Artemisia de Vine and contains: Bare Bottom spanking & caning as well as a double figging, embarrassment, humiliation, assumed patriarchal family roles and eroticised sexist concepts. Irene teaches her half sister Ella a lesson in lady-like behaviour. Pictures are of professional Mistress Electra Amore and Switch Artemisia de Vine role playing Irene and Ella.
Irene’s back was stiff with cold formality and her silver soup spoon clanked a little louder than it needed to against the delicate china bowl. Little droplets of creamy butternut splashed onto the pristine white table-cloth. Oblivious, her new boyfriend, Harold, continued to sneak glances at Ella’s ample cleavage across the table.
“Interesting choice of frock for a family dinner, sister dear,” said Irene with a deceptive causal tone. “Wherever did you get it?”
“Yes it was a great find!” replied Ella, purposely ignoring the hint of venom in Irene’s polite sentiments. “I got it on sale at that cute little boutique near the old Princess Theatre. It was the last one left and fits like a glove.”
“Shame they didn’t have any other sizes left. Perhaps one size up would have been a little more modest.” said Irene through a fixed smile that did not reach her eyes.
Ella’s sweetly plump face reddened in recognition of her half-sister’s mood. Her nostrils flared slightly.
Of course taunting Ella had the opposite effect that Irene wanted as now all eyes focused squarely on Ella’s milky bosom threatening to spill out of her low-cut black V-neck with every indignant breath. To make things worse, an attractive blush blossomed on her chest and cheeks.
“It’s a perfect fit,” said Harold appreciatively, “Very nice indeed”.
There was an uncomfortable adjusting of pearl necklaces and shuffling in seats as the rest of the extended family felt the ripple of tension. Uncle Victor, the religious one in the family, was clearly the most uncomfortable and his bulbous red nose, twitched in disapproval. Only cousin Jack remained laid back in his chair and looked amused at the show.
Aunt Rachel, a prim, grey haired lady of social graces and an ever-present urge to play peace maker, coughed delicately and interjected, “Irene tells me you have a yacht and are going to spend the summer sailing the Greek Islands, Harold.”
“Yes!” boomed Harold magnanimously, “I was going to announce that after dessert. You are welcome to join us. You too, Ella,” He grinned, returning his attention back to his girlfriend’s half sister.
“Really! I’ve always wanted to go. That would be lovely!” beamed Ella. Her mind filled with visions of bikini clad sun baking and cocktails on the deck. While she came from a family of money, she did not have a lot of her own so this was a wonderful opportunity.
There was a clunk and crash as Irene’s wine glass fell to the floor, spraying velvety shiraz down her cream shirt and all over the rich oranges and earthy tones of the Persian rug.
“Oh dear!” she tutted, feathers clearly ruffled. Her hands trembled slightly as she brushed at the stain, but she only succeeded in smearing the wine further.
“Are you alright my dear?” Harold asked, suddenly reverting to attentive boyfriend. There was much fussing and concern for Irene but no one lifted a finger in a practical sense. Ella thought, not for the first time, that should her family suddenly have to look after themselves, evolution would simply wipe them out. Their survival skills revolved around how to best hire someone else to do the work for them.
Miss Brown, the family housekeeper, rushed forward with a dust pan and began cleaning up the mess with starched efficiency.
“How clumsy of me!” muttered Irene, “Please do excuse me while I go change. Ella, would you be so kind as to give me a hand?”
“Of course!” replied, Ella, hiding the foreboding she felt welling up in her stomach. She knew how jealous Irene became if she wasn’t the centre of her lover’s attention.
They had this sibling rivalry since they were teenagers and it still flared up now they were in their thirties. Irene was a brunette with a perfect hourglass figure and the air of a well-bred lady. Plump hips, curving into a small waste and flaring back out again to large shapely breasts. The sort of breasts that hung like fruit on the tree of temptation, thought Ella, with a flash of her own jealousy. Irene had the kind of curves that caught the eye of most men and was used to receiving admiring attention. Surely she could share a little harmless admiration here and there?
Ella was all blonde curls and dimples and was the larger of the two ladies. Larger curves meant larger breasts. Ridiculously large. Her figure may not be quite as perfect an hour-glass but she made up for that with her excessive cleavage.
As soon as the two women were through the hall and out of ear shot, Irene grabbed Ella by the arm and guided her firmly down the hall. “What do you think you are doing?” hissed Irene. “If Daddy were here you wouldn’t dare wear such a dress to a family dinner!
“What are you talking about, it’s not that bad! Let go! You are hurting my arm!”
Irene flashed an angry look at her sister but kept her back in perfectly dignified pose as she continued to stride purposefully towards her own quarters. She didn’t say another word. Ella didn’t know what was more disconcerting, the fuming silence or the pain in her arm as Irene’s grip tightened.
Finally, Irene relinquished her hold in order to push open the heavy wooden door of her room, revealing luscious cream rugs and a four-poster bed.
“Honestly Ella, I can’t believe you still haven’t grown up!” scolded Irene as she unbuttoned her shirt, revealing an electric blue satin balconette bra that framed her own assets to beautiful advantage. “It is completely inappropriate for you to wear something like that to dinner.”
“Really Irene, I don’t know why you worry so much. Harold loves you, he was just having a little peek. Men do that, they can’t help themselves.”
“You always do this! You down play the havoc you cause with your immodest dress. Did you see how uncomfortable poor uncle Victor was!” She said unzipping her navy linen skirt and letting it pool around her ankles to reveal matching blue satin knickers and a suspender belt holding up seamed stockings.
“I see you have romantic plans for the evening,” Ella teased, “Perhaps tonight’s entertainment will turn out to be good for you after all. It may bring out the passion in old Harold.”
Refusing to rise to the bait, Irene strode over her to her carved, rosewood wardrobe and selected a simple, elegant, black dress. She pulled it up over her ripe round bottom and straightened the snug fit around her tiny waist.
“Come here and give me a hand with the zip will you?”
Ella did as she was asked but showed no signs of apology.
Irene’s face was once again the picture of perfect calm as she smoothed her hair and adjusted her earrings in the mirror. She contemplated Ella in the reflection over her shoulder.
“So think you are coming to the Greek Islands with me this summer do you?” she asked dangerously calm.
Ella tidied her hair nervously. She recognised that tone and knew her sister was up to something.
“Well yes!” A hint of uncertainty and defensiveness coloured her voice. “Harold has invited me directly, you heard. You know how much I have always wanted to go.”
“Hmmm… I think perhaps he may be persuaded to change his mind about that.”
Ella’s eyes widened. “Come now, there is no need to be like that. I know you feel a little jealous right now but it will all blow over in a jiffy and Harold will be all over you in a bikini when we get to Greece”.
“Really? You still haven’t learned have you. You have no idea how uncomfortable you make everyone when you wear a dress like that! You are such a child! If only daddy was still here to bend you over his knee for a spanking like he did when we were young. Though perhaps if he had of spanked you more often, you would not be so spoiled now.”
“Oh ha ha. Now you are just being spiteful.” snorted Ella
“No actually I am quite serious. I really have had enough of you flirting with my boyfriends. I have reached the very end of my tether. You can prove to me that you have learned your lesson and changed, or no Greek Island adventures for you.”
Worried now, Ella paused and fidgeted with a blonde ringlet, trying to think of a way to pacify her sister.
“Look Irene, it really isn’t that big of a deal… “ she began but was cut off by the icy look Irene shot her.
“Alright, I will go and get changed if it bothers you that much. Though your lovely Harold may wonder why both of us got changed when wine was only spilled on your blouse.”
“No it is too late for that. I really want proof you’ve changed. I can’t have you bouncing those breasts of yours all around the Aegean if I can’t trust that you’ve truly learned your lesson. You will have to satisfy me or miss out on the holiday.”
Ella sighed impatiently, “Ok fine. What is it you want me to do?”
A brief smile flashed across Irene’s face. She could see several moves ahead in this game of chess and could take her sweet time. Ella had no idea she had already lost.
“I want to give you the spanking you deserve. If you are going to be so childish, I am going to treat you like a child and give you a sound spanking just like daddy would have.”
Ella just scoffed dismissively.
Irene did not smile. She stood there, dignified, with one eyebrow raised.
“Oh I am perfectly serious sister dear. What is more, you will take whatever punishment I choose to dish out until I am satisfied that you have learned your lesson. That, or miss out on the holiday. It is up to you.”
Ella’s smile faded as it began to dawn on her that her sister was not messing about.
“You are not serious!” protested Ella clinging to denial. “You know how much I want to come on holidays with you!”
Ella begged and pleaded but Irene would not be moved. It was a sound spanking or no Greece. Seeing that her only hope of bathing in sun bedazzled water and flirting with shirtless sailors, was to get back on Irene’s good side, she reasoned to herself that a spanking would be over very quickly, but a holiday would last all summer…
Still not really believing she was doing this, Ella said, “So you will be happy with a spanking? That will sort your mood out and we can all get on with having a lovely time?”
“A proper spanking and suitable punishment until I am satisfied you have truly learned your lesson,” Irene repeated.
“Ok fine, if it will get you out of this sour mood!” conceded Ella rolling her eyes.
A slight smile curled the corner of Irene’s mouth as she re-applied her frosted berry lipstick in the dresser mirror. She was silent as she dabbed a little perfume on both wrists and then, taking her time, turned around. Leaning back on the dresser’s edge, she contemplated her half-sister. After several weighted moments she reached a conclusion and pronounced it in definite tones, “Go into Daddy’s office and assume the position he used to insist on. Wait for me there.”
Ella laughed nervously. “Are you serious?”
Irene replied serenely, “I couldn’t be more serious sister dear. I am fed up and now I am going to do what should have been done a long time ago. Go now and wait for me.” She turned back to the mirror as though Ella’s obedience was an unarguable certainty.
Ella paused but the thought of being left behind while everyone sent postcards from her dream holiday irked her too much. Besides, it couldn’t be too bad. The spanking would have to be over quickly she repeated to herself, or else everyone at the dinner table would wonder what had happened to them. They would not start the next course until both women returned. Yes, just a quick spanking and it will all be over. As ridiculous as this is, I shall just play along and let Irene have her little power play. She will feel better soon. Then we can all get on with the fun.” She slipped out the door and down the hall, red satin slippers silent on thick carpets.
As with all these old houses, artwork hung on the walls with candlesticks and vases on elegantly carved side tables were dispersed at intervals. She passed a portrait of daddy and glanced up. He was Irene’s daddy too. How formal and stern he looked in this painting! His temples greying against his dark curly hair and neatly trimmed beard. Oh how she missed him! He was such a strong, supportive presence in their lives. True, he had occasionally had to discipline both girls, and their brother Freddie too, but he had only ever done so for their own good.
Ella rubbed her bottom unconsciously as she remembered being bent over his study chair. “Irene is right”, she thought, “Daddy wouldn’t be pleased with me wearing this dress. I guess I hadn’t thought it all the way through…. Still, he is gone now and I am a grown woman. Besides it was harmless really. All men look! I can’t help it if I am well endowed”.
She wandered further down the hall until she reached the brass door handle of daddy’s office. She hadn’t been in there in years. As the door creaked open she let out a little gasp. It was all exactly as he had left it!
His heavy wooden desk dominated the room with it’s carved lion paw legs and leather banker’s top. A large ornately framed mirror hung on the wall behind his high-backed brown leather chair. Surrounded on both sides of the mirror were floor to ceiling bookcases full of all her father’s favourites.
Ella kicked her shoes off and sunk her toes into the rug. Wow, just coming back in here made her feel like a young girl again. She spun slowly taking it all in. Lamps, maps and oddities her father had picked up on his travels filled every available surface. Another mirror leaned against the wall by the door. She remembered her father telling her it was too large to hang. When she was young, she never thought to question why a man would want so many mirrors in his study but now she was older, it struck her as a little odd.
But then she saw the red velvet armchair and forgot all about it. It was the chair that her long-dead mother used to sit and read in and Daddy had never had the heart to remove it. He had long imaginary conversations with her memory even well after he re-married. Perhaps he even discussed how to raise her, mused Ella. But this chair also had another history…
Daddy had spanked his offspring in different positions depending on the severity of the misdemeanour. If he was giving them a hand spanking for something naughty but not too bad, he would bend them over his knee. If the crime warranted a bigger swing than was possible sitting down, he had them lean on their elbows on the red velvet armchair raising their bottoms high to make an easy target. If they were really bad, they had to bend over the desk so their full weight was supported should their knees buckle.
Ella had never been made to bend over the desk but she remembered watching red-faced Freddie bent over it as he received the strap followed by the cane on the day he crashed his mother’s car. The whole family had been marched in to witness his disgrace and he had been made to lower his pants in front of them all!
Ella shuddered remembering how sore his bottom had looked after that sound thrashing!
Suddenly the door creaked open behind her. She hadn’t heard Irene walking down the hall across those thick carpets.
“You aren’t taking this seriously at all are you!” She tutted severely as she swung the door open. “I told you to assume the position and here you are daydreaming! You are only going to make this worse on yourself you know.”
“Fine!” retorted Ella, rebellion warring with desire to make peace and get it over with. She strode over to the red armchair with exaggerated fawning obedience and bent over, leaning on her elbows for support like she had as a young girl. “Yes Ma’am!”
Irene was silent. She didn’t say a word or make a move to come closer. Ella began to feel awkward, and a burn of embarrassment rise in her cheeks. She felt silly bent over in front of her grown sister but stubbornly refused to turn around and see what Irene was doing.
Still the silence continued. A soundless battle of wills. Both women determined not to let the other get the upper hand.
Eventually Irene spoke. “I don’t think you should be afforded the protection of that dress, sister dear” she said with quiet confidence. “It will only serve to lessen the sting. No it will have to be lifted out of the way”. Before, Ella could protest, she stepped forward and swiftly raised the hem of Ella’s offending dress, sliding it up over her round bottom and folding it neatly on her waist.
Ella tensed, shocked, but was determined not to give Irene any more satisfaction than necessary. She didn’t know how to respond. Her mind raced. Here she was a grown woman, nearly forty years old and her little sister was determined to make this punishment as humiliating as possible by lifting her dress and exposing her knickers! Frantically, she tried to remember what underwear she had thoughtlessly put on that morning.
Irene stood back and admired the effect her action had on her sister. She had noticed Ella’s quickened breath. Her plump, creamy bottom was framed in full-brief black satin underwear and matching stay up stockings.
“Planning on seducing someone wearing those stockings were we?” asked Irene with deadly calm.
“No not at all!” Ella exclaimed, realising that her choice of undergarments would ignite Irene’s jealousy all the more. Especially if she thought she had designs on Harold!
“You really have no shame do you sister?” Irene shook her head, her face the picture of offended modesty. She tapped her black patent shoes against floor in irritation.
“Well if you insist on having your breasts out for the whole world to see, I don’t see why you shouldn’t also have your bottom exposed. It seems fitting considering how you got into this mess after all!”
Irene reached out and slipped her thumbs underneath Ella’s underwear and began to pull them down.
“Are you serious!” croaked a mortified Ella, standing up in horror and wriggling to get away.
“Absolutely! You keep asking that and I assure you I am serious. It is time you learned the price of your immodesty and since our daddy isn’t here to teach you I shall just have to take you in hand myself. Now stand still. I won’t believe you have learned your lesson until you understand the impact your actions have on others and show you are willing to make amends by taking your deserved punishment.
Ella just stood there in disbelief. Did her sister really want her to bare her bottom! She stared at her Irene, trying, and failing, to come up with a response. She gapped but no words came out. All rebuffs had fled her mind. It really was a no win situation.
After several tense moments she realised that her only choice was to protest and lose her trip to Greece or obey and get this over with. Feeling thoroughly embarrassed she painstakingly bent back over the chair, gripped the arm to stop herself from leaping up again and submitted to Irene’s humiliating directions.
Irene made a small sound of victory in her throat and leaned forward in a cloud of musky perfume and self-satisfaction. Again she hooked her thumbs under the elastic and theatrically pulled down her sister’s underwear. She took her time knowing full well the embarrassment she was stirring in her sibling. She pulled them down low enough to ensure no modesty remained but then let them bunch neatly. She was fastidiously neat and always had been.
Then she stood back to enjoy the effect. She knew she had hit the mark because Ella’s breathing was a short and sharp despite her attempts to hide her shame. Teaching Ella her lesson was not without its enjoyment.
The bottom before her was a lovely one. Not the rear of a slender young teenager but rather full, ripe, woman’s buttocks. Plump, soft and inviting. Ella’s body rather reminded Irene of renaissance nudes, only with larger breasts. Somehow the loveliness of Ella’s rear only incense her more. It seemed to Irene that the whiteness of her sister’s skin was crying out to be marked crimson for her unladylike crimes.
“Are you feeling embarrassed Ella?” she asked.
“Well yes, this is a bit unusual!” replied Ella, attempting to keep her dignity.
“Really! Well now you know how I felt when you humiliated me in front of the entire family with your display, flirting with Harold like that! Goodness knows what they think of me now! You really deserve to feel utterly embarrassed by your own behaviour but since you do not seem to have the sense to, I shall make you feel it now as part of your punishment.”
Ella groaned. She should have known it wouldn’t be as simple as a quick spanking. Irene was a woman scorned.
And then, without warning, came the first jolting slap. It surprised all thought from Ella’s mind! Before she could even yelp, the first was followed closely by the staccato ring of five more hard spanks that left her breathless and wriggling to get out of the way.
Irene was business-like in her delivery. Open handed stings, one after the other. The shock of it made Ella bounce forward and squeal. She hadn’t been ready for that!
“Oh hold still, you baby! That is only child’s play. I plan on warming your bottom nicely before we rejoin the others. The more you wriggle about the worse it will be for you. Now get back in position.” Irene’s voice was all confident command now that she felt in control again.
Ella slumped forward before she could catch herself. It had hurt a lot more than she remembered but it had been a couple of decades since she had been forced to suffer this indignity.
“If you do not get back in position Ella, I will have to assume you have changed your mind on our deal.”
With reluctant obedience, Ella centred herself, weight resting on her forearms so she could raise her bottom high as she had been taught. Strange how it all came flooding back… all those instructions on how to hold yourself in the way that was expected by her father.
However that wasn’t good enough for Irene. She took hold of Ella’s shapely hips and re-positioned her, arching her back even further making Ella feel even more exposed.
“What is more, sister dear,” continued Irene in her patronising voice, I want to know you appreciate the effort I am taking to bring you back in line… for you own good… and the good of the family. I want you to demonstrate your gratefulness and thank me after each set of six spanks and politely ask me for more. If I think you have learned your lesson I will stop. If not, I will comply with your request and continue to dish out your discipline. Do you understand me?”
Ella realised that she was not going to get out of this with her dignity anywhere near in tact and decided her best plan was doing her utmost to please her sister to make this whole ordeal end as soon as possible.
“Yes Irene” she agreed, trying to keep the sullenness out of her voice.
“Yes ma’am”, you will call me ma’am until this is all over. After all wasn’t it you who started that with your earlier sarcasm? Besides, you lost your right to be my equal when you jiggled your breasts like bait on a hook in front of my boyfriend. Like a tramp! A proper hussy! You weren’t brought up to behave that way now were you?” lectured Irene gaining momentum.
Then without waiting for an answer she began spanking her sister hard.
“One, two, three, four, five, six!”
Ella reeled. She gasped and couldn’t think clearly. She hadn’t expected her sister to be so strong! She had hardly time to catch her breath when Irene tapped her foot impatiently and demanded, “I’m waiting!”
Ella gritted her teeth. “Thank you ma’am, may I please have another set of six?”
Oh my she was never going to live this down! Irene was going to lord it over her all summer now.
Whack, whack, whack, whack, whack, whack!
Ella’s bottom was really getting hot now!
“Thank you ma’am, may I please have another set of six?” It was just so grating having to ask for more. She longed to rub her sore bottom but didn’t dare provoke her sister further.
Irene’s arm showed no sign of tiring as she delivered another round of stinging retribution. It seemed as though she was going to keep it up all night! Each slap bit into Ella’s soft flesh, and sent it jiggling.
Several more rounds of this passed and it seemed as though Irene would never be satisfied. She continued to imprint her no-nonsense lesson into her sister’s flesh until finally, Ella burst out sobbing. “Please! I am sorry! I can’t take any more! Please, I’ve had enough!”
“There, there!” cooed Irene, rubbing her sister’s sore bottom to comfort it. “You say you are sorry is that right?”
“Yes I am very sorry!”
“Maam. Say I am sorry ma’am”.
“I… I am sorry ma’am” choked Ella between sobs, relieved that the ordeal was over. Irene’s hands felt so lovely and cool on her sore, swollen bottom.
“But interestingly,” continued Irene, “What I heard is that you only apologised because you wanted the spanking to stop. Not because you have really learned your lesson at all.” She paused for effect and let that sink in, then continued, “I will tell you what. I will stop spanking you and let you return to the family meal if you agree to continue this punishment after dinner. That will give you some time to recover and think about your actions. Perhaps you will form a more genuine apology then. Otherwise we can just continue with the spanking now. It is your choice”.
Ella’s poor bottom was so red! She couldn’t bare the thought of another round of spanking so she reluctantly agreed and stood up to cover herself.
“Oh, and there is one more thing…” said Irene with the air of one springing a trap, “You are to feel the sting of embarrassment that you caused me for the rest of the meal”.
Ella looked around and wiped her tears. What was this new turn of events?
“Did you know that uncle Victor was telling me the most fascinating story just the other day, continued Irene, fumbling around in her handbag. “Do you know what they used to do to young girls caught in inappropriate self… er… young ladies with promiscuous inclinations shall we say… back in Victorian times?”
“Er no…” said Ella nervously.
“They were quite clever, our forebears. They had to train inappropriate behaviour out of the young ladies and they had just the method to do it. They used these!” she said reaching into her tan leather handbag and producing something wrapped in a handkerchief. She began unwrapping it to reveal a yellowish tan object.
Ella leaned closer for a better look. At first she wasn’t sure what she was looking at and then she caught its scent.
“Is that ginger?” she asked puzzled.
“Yes my dear, it is indeed. I have taken the time to skin it and carve it into a suitable plug shape especially for you”.
“What are you going to do with it?” asked Ella eyes growing wide with suspicion.
“Why I am going to do just what our ancestors did when a woman behaved like a little hussy. Have you heard of figging my dear sister? If you think with your lady parts, then I shall teach you not to. Now bend over”.
“What!” spluttered Ella.
“You heard me. Bend over. Unless of course you would prefer me to continue spanking you? We have been gone some time now and someone is sure to come looking for us. Imagine if it is uncle Victor who opens the door to the site of your bare bottom. You will have to explain to him exactly why you are in this predicament. Would you prefer that?”
Ella was horrified!
“If it is cousin Jack they send to fetch us, I doubt he will keep his mouth shut. He will find the whole thing terribly amusing!”
“Ok, ok!” Ella agreed in desperation, “I’ll do it!” Her whole face rivaled tomatoes for redness, as she bent back over. Even her ears burned crimson to match her bottom.
“That’s right dear, now arch your back so I have a good view of that bottom of yours. Stand with your feet a foot apart. Quick smart!” Irene clapped her hands smartly.
Disbelievingly, Ella obeyed. She had gone through too much now to miss out on Greece. If she did not commit to the ordeal until the end, all she had already suffered would be for nothing. She had to submit to her jealous sister’s retribution.
Something cold, hard and moist slid up her thigh and between her legs. Her sister’s warm fingers spread her gently but firmly open and she felt the tip of the ginger nestling against her lady parts. Irene made sure to get ginger juice everywhere sensitive before gently pushing the root inside her sister. She pushed it in deep but left the flared based on the outside for easy removal. This method also ensured the ginger juices would rub against the most sensitive area near the opening.
“Stay there, I am not quite done.” commanded Irene. Ella groaned. What now?
She felt a second ginger root plug against her buttocks. Where had that come from?
Irene slipped a knee between Ella’s thighs, and use it to push them further apart. Once Irene was happy that Ella’s position made her nicely open and available, she spread her buttocks without preamble. “Now remember you brought this on yourself sister dear” Irene smirked, as she began to roll the tip of the ginger root around Ella’s alarmed pucker. Taking her time to work her sister’s hole open, she slowly inserted the second root in her bottom. Two roots!
Ella couldn’t quite believe what was happening! It didn’t seem real. She felt so full and uncomfortable!
Reverting back to business-like efficiency, Irene pulled Ella’s underwear up over her smarting bottom and gave her buttock one last satisfied slap.
“If you are to prove that you are genuinely sorry, you will make recompense by wearing those ginger plugs for the rest of the meal. Each time you feel them, you will remember that the shame of it is a reminder of the humiliation you put me through earlier. The sensation of the roots will remind you to check your behaviour and ensure it is ladylike and modest. However, you are not to change out of that dress! You are to wear your bosom out for all to see for the rest of the meal, knowing what a disgrace you are. You wanted to put yourself on display after all…”
Ella stood up slowly. She felt the rough fibres of the ginger root nestled inside her. It was a strange, hard feeling. Even more disconcerting was that a part of her felt pleasure against her will. Still she couldn’t believe her sister would do this to her! It felt so invasive!
“Come now, we must get back.” Irene grasped Ella by the arm and pushed her out into the hall in front of her so she could enjoy watching her sister trying to walk normally down the long hall towards the dining room.
Ella stumbled, straightened and then stepped carefully, keeping her back erect. She tried walking one way, and then another but nothing seemed to make the alien objects feel any less intrusive. One painstaking step after the other… Try as she might, she couldn’t quite achieve a normal gate.
Irene laughed quietly. “ Quickly now, they will be wondering where we have got to!”
Just as they walked through the entrance of the dining room, the burning sensation began. Ella stumbled a little as stinging heat began to pulse in her most delicate of areas and her face blushed full sunset crimson. Oh what was this new hell? She longed to rub herself to get some relief. She half turned to duck back into the hall.
“There you two are!” bellowed Harold in his American accent. “We were about to send out a search party!” The whole table turned to witness the two women’s entrance. Ella felt their eyes burning into her. She had never felt so naked! With her bottom smarting and her privates on fire she was sure they all knew! She was suddenly aware of how little her dress actually covered.
“Are you ok Ella dear?” asked her step mother, sounding concerned. “You look rather unwell.”
Irene leaned in and hissed in Ella’s ear. “You are to stay the whole meal and then meet me in daddy’s office afterwards for your finale or the deal is off.”
“No I’m fine, really.” Ella unconvincingly replied to her step mother. “Please I am fine. Don’t let me hold you all up any longer. Let’s begin the next course.”
She felt as though the distance to the dining table had suddenly extended to the length of a foot ball field. She was sure that everyone could tell she was walking strangely and each awkward step seemed an exercise in slow motion humiliation. Worse, she couldn’t hurry because each movement made more ginger juice release and mingled with her own natural juices, trickle down into every fold and crevice. Each sway of her hip as she walked made the burn became so much more intense.
Finally, after what seemed an age, she reached her destination. However, instead of relief she face a new ordeal. She winced as she sat down on the hard chair. Both her sore bottom and the movement of the slightly protruding ginger plugs reminded her rudely of her predicament. She experimented, rocking backwards and forwards trying to find a comfortable position but it was no good. As soon as one area got some relief, the other area experienced more pressure. It took all her self control not to wriggle and fidget as another wave of burning ginger juice took effect.
Irene’s mood was utterly transformed from earlier. She played the lady, all full of graciousness and banter, talking to all the guests. No one would have guessed what had passed between the sister’s only moment before. Or perhaps this marked change in both women would mean they did suspect… did they? Ella blushed again hoping they did not.
She sat miserably at the table feeling terribly exposed. She became ever so aware of her under-covered bosom just as Irene predicted. She blushed whenever anyone spoke to her and was so polite and demur that Harold loudly exclaimed he thought her a different person to the sister-in-law-to-be he had been bantering with only twenty minutes before. He had such a loud voice and kept drawing the attention of the whole gathering back to Ella over and over again. However instead of enjoying it this time, she cringed and tried to deflect the attention back to her sister.
Irene’s eyes glittered with amusement as she watched Ella squirm under the attention she had previously enjoyed so much. Despite this sign of Irene’s appeasement, each time Harold’s eyes lingered a split second longer than they should on Ella’s cleavage, Ella sense of dread increased. What would happen to her when she was next alone in daddy’s study with Irene?
Ella’s senses were heightened and she became sensitive to everything around her. Everything her family said seemed to be an accusation in disguise. The meal dragged on. Several people asked for second helpings of quail and asparagus, drawing out the process even longer. Ella couldn’t concentrate and left her own meal hardly touched.
The worst of it was when Uncle Victor, the insufferable, self righteous, religious one of the family, leaned in close to her and began talking to her about the sermon he had particularly enjoyed last Sunday. It was terribly confusing to have burning and, well, confusing feelings in her lady parts while her uncle was talking about the bible to her!
Oh how he droned on, his eyes boring into her intensely! His yellow teeth obliviously chattering a condemnation of her sins. Or at least that is what it seemed like to poor Ella but he couldn’t really know. Could he?
“It isn’t in fashion to preach from the old testament any more but I find comfort in the clarity severity brings don’t you?” He asked without waiting for an answer. “The God of the old testament was much more decisive! If one strayed from the path, He wasn’t afraid to send them swift and just retribution to bring them back in line. He wasn’t caught in any namby pamby political correctness! The Almighty is the very definition of justice!”
Did he know? No! No? Of course he didn’t. Did he?
Irene took perverse delight in asking Ella to pass her various things. Usually directly after Harold had paid a little too much attention to Ella. Irene deliberately chose objects that required Ella to lean forward and stretch out in order to comply. This had the unpleasant effect of rocking the protruding parts of the ginger against the chair and starting another round of burning as more juice was released. Ella was forced to smile politely at her sister as she passed her one object or another, all the while feeling a renewed alarming sensations in her nether regions. Irene maintained piercing eye contact as she leaned back forcing Ella to lean ever further forward in order to achieve her task of passing the salt or sauce.
Finally, dessert was brought out and placed in front of each member of the family. Baked pears with almonds and… “What is that lovely spicy flavour I detect Miss Brown?” asked cousin Jack.
“Cinnamon and ginger,” she replied amicably.
This was just too much for poor Ella to bear. She dropped her spoon with a loud clatter and it sprayed ginger covered pear juice all over the tablecloth before it clanged loudly to the floor. This is the second time that evening that the carpets suffered new marks.
Of course, all the noisy fuss meant all eyes turned to Ella again and she was forced to struggle to keep her composure as she bent down to pick up the slippery silverware from the ground. She wished the earth wold swallow her whole! The position she was forced to get in to reach for her spoon really did make certain hidden objects notably uncomfortable and she couldn’t help a small grunting moan escape her lips. She felt sure she would die of shame right there. With the private parts pulsing alarmingly and all eyes boring into her… Irene was stifling a laugh in her napkin…
Would it ever end?
Eventually it did. The last spoon scraped across the delicate china ware and the last morsel of desert was licked from the corner of aunt Rachel’s mouth. The family began pushing back their chairs and moving away from the table.
Irene came around behind Ella and whispered in her ear. “I think it is time for you to retire to the office. I shall be a bit longer of course. This time I expect you to assume the position properly. Lean over the desk this time. Expose your bottom in preparation for me and wait.”
Ella’s stomach sunk. The desk! That meant Irene had saved the worst till last. She didn’t know if she could take anymore! However, if she didn’t go through with it till the very end, all she had suffered would be for naught. It seemed the further she got into this mess, the more committed she became to getting through till the end. She couldn’t go back now.
Far more contritely, than her earlier brash self, she whispered quietly, “Yes Irene”.
“Yes who?” asked Irene with a meaningful eyebrow raise.
Ella’s heart skipped a beat. Every one seemed busy talking amongst themselves and not paying attention, but what if someone overheard? Still she didn’t dare refuse.
“Yes Maam”. She said, madly blushing.
As soon as Ella was alone she rubbed her poor burning parts. How she had longed to all meal but hadn’t been able to. The burning had settled down now but the uncomfortable roots remained in place, reminding her of their offensive effects.
This time, she did not dawdle. She went straight to her father’s large wooden desk and leaned across it. The cool leather felt soothing against her breasts.
As she reached down to lift her own skirts as per her instructions, she caught a glimpse of herself in the large mirror behind the desk. In the reflection was also the large mirror behind her on the wall. She was horrified to realised she could see herself from every humiliating angle.
Had her father done this deliberately? How strange!
Still, unwilling to give Irene more ammunition, she hurriedly lifted her dress and lowered her underwear. The little knobs of ginger protruded rudely but stayed in place.
And she waited… this time Irene was in no hurry. Ella was left to look at herself in this humiliating position in all the mirrors and consider what had gotten her into this situation.
From this angle she could see that yes she really was exposing a dangerous amount of bosom. When she leaned over like this, they very nearly fell right out! She was unable to look away herself and had to concede that yes it was a rather distracting thing to wear to a family dinner. No wonder Harold had been unable to stop peeking at her!
Still, she waited. Her bottom exposed to the door. Should anyone but Irene walk in she would but thoroughly humiliated indeed!
Finally she heard voices in the corridor. It was Irene and who was that she was talking to? She heard low talking and then loudly, “Ok good night dear! I will be with you shortly. I just have one last thing to finish up before I come to bed”.
Then in she walked. Her eyes caught Ella’s in the reflection and held them like a spotlight…. Irene was fully exposed to her sister and felt about an inch tall. She could not get away from that all seeing gaze.
Instead of walking in and closing the door behind her, Irene leaned against the door frame with one hand hiding something behind her back. The effect sent panic through Ella. Although no one was in the hall, anyone could wander by at any time… yet Irene seem unconcerned.
“And what have we learned this evening Ella?” She asked with disconcerting confidence, making no attempt to keep her voice down. We will be going ahead with this next phase of discipline no matter how well you apologise but I hope you have had a very good think about your behaviour and have prepared a suitable apology because the severity of your next punishment depends entirely on how convinced I am.”
With that, she produced a cane from behind her back and flexed it suggestively.
“ The cane! I have never been caned before! Where on earth did you get a cane from?”
“From me,” said a male voice as another figure stepped through the door. It was uncle Victor clothed in religious zeal, twitching nose radiating judgement!
His eyes darted down as he took in the full picture before him. “Hmmm… quite the spectacle! But then again you are used to making a spectacle of yourself aren’t you my dear.” He said without emotion.
Ella felt a wave of humiliation rise like fire through her whole body. Her hands automatically darted to pull down her dress and cover herself.
“Don’t you dare move sister!” warned Irene darting forward and placing the tip of the cane under Ella’s chin.
“Uncle Victor is daddy’s brother and since daddy can’t be here to pull you in line, I have had a good talk with Uncle Victor. He too had noticed your outrageous behaviour of late and agreed something needed to be done about it. You will stay in this position and be witnessed in your disgrace.
“It is my duty, of course, to preserve the harmony in this family as far as possible now that my brother has gone. When Irene talked of your ongoing problematic behaviour earlier this week, we came up with a plan.”
“He had known!” thought Ella, “That hateful man! Oh how Irene must be loving this! She knows how much Uncle Victor gets under my skin.”
And then out loud, “Wait a minute! You planned this? Earlier this week?!”
“Yes sister, we did. Tonight is not a one off. Your behaviour has been unacceptable for some time. We knew that it would only be a matter of time before you did something we could make an example of.”
Ella fumed! She had been tricked into this! Yet she didn’t dare move. There she was, bent over and exposed with the ginger roots effectively nailing her to the desk… the very punishment uncle Victor had told Irene about! Yet she dared not stand up. She had come too far now. She felt weak in the knees and grasped the edge of the desk with white knuckled desperation.
“Yes, while I am the man of this house now that your father is gone, it would have been inappropriate for me to administer this particular punishment. We had to arrange it so that your sister would be the one to perform that little procedure.”
He continued, “Your grandfather used to dish out discipline to your father and I when we were growing up and it did us the world of good. He was a strong believer that physical pain was not enough of a deterrent on its own. He believed that a punishment should also be embarrassing in order to be effective and should suit the nature of the misdemeanour or character flaw. Your flaw, is flaunting and mis-using your womanly wiles so this is the most appropriate way to purge you of this habit. Your father was too lenient on you after your mother died Ella, and it shows. I am here to make up for that lack. I hope tonight’s demonstration has hit the mark.
Now, for your apology. I am here to witness and decide the severity of your caning depending on how convinced we are that you have learned your lesson.”
Ella gulped. She could see herself in all the mirrors and multiple reflections of her relatives too. It seemed that the room was full of jealous sisters and looming religious zealot uncles, all witnessing her disgrace. Fractal accusations of her character. She had better make this good.
“I hadn’t realised that I had been causing such a problem! It all seemed harmless to me but I see now that I have been selfish. I have created distance between you and Harold, Irene, and for that I am sorry. I shall be much more considerate in future”.
Her words were met with silence.
“I really am sorry”. She added hastily and was surprised to find she meant it. “I was childish and inappropriate”.
After a little more silence, her uncle finally spoke. “Do you agree that you caused pain to your sister and deserve to feel pain in return?
“Yes I suppose that is true. Yes I do deserve to receive the cane. The pain of losing Harold would have been far worse than canes. I will accept my punishment.”
Irene nodded triumphantly.
“Six of the best and we will say no more of it,” pronounced uncle Victor. He fully entered the room and finally shut the door behind him much to Ella’s relief. He then sat down, sour faced in the red velvet chair and crossed his legs to observe proceedings.
Irene moved over and tested the cane by swishing it through the air.
“You will thank me after each stroke as before, counting as we go,” pronounced Irene.
“Yes Maam,” replied a contrite Ella.
Irene stood to one side of her sister and reached down to hold her by the hips, adjusting Ella’s bottom so it was in the most convenient position. She then began tapping the cane against her sister’s bottom to practice her aim. It was still a little pink from her earlier spanking. Irene took her time. Then, the cane whizzed through the air and bit neatly into Ella’s flesh.
A red welt raised immediately and Ella gasped! Even with her new attitude, she wasn’t ready for how much the cane would hurt and she nearly forgot to thank her sister.
“One thank you Ma’am, may I please have another?” she wheezed trying to catch her breath.
Before she had time to gather herself fully, the next stroke was whirring through the air with surprising accuracy. When had Irene learned to use the cane?
All thoughts of such matters quickly disappeared as the cane hit home of the third time. Ella’s bottom was on fire!
“Three thank you ma’am, may I please have another”.
Uncle Victor was silent in his chair but Ella was keenly aware of his presence. His self righteousness crawled all over her skin.
Whoosh! The cane struck again. And again.
“Four thank you ma’am, may I please have another?” Moaned Ella
“Five thank you ma’am, may I please have another?”
And finally, pausing just for moment, Irene struck her sister one last time.
“Six thank you ma’am.” cried Ella bursting into tears. “I’m so sorry Irene. I didn’t know how much I had hurt you. I really didn’t. I am sorry”.
“There, there” soothed Irene, rubbing her sister’s bottom in comfort. “Shshshshs…. It’s all ok. You’ve learned your lesson and everything will be alright now.
Irene’s hands were cool and soft on her Ella’s sore bottom caressing the six, neat, red welts in a row. Ella felt strangely childlike being comforted like this and somehow it really did make her feel better.
“I don’t think you need these anymore either,” said Irene, as she slipped her fingers lower to get a grip on a protruding ginger root. She gently tugged on it and removed the plug from her sister and dropped it in a near by wastepaper basket. Then, running her fingers down, she felt for the other root and tenderly removed it too.
“I wonder what the cleaner will think of that!” She laughed gently as the second root joined the first. Ella looked up at her sister through tear stained eyes and began to giggle too. The two women turned and hugged closely, Irene still rubbing poor Ella’s bottom.
Uncle Victor simply said, “Good. Now kiss and make up like good girls”. He leaned back, uncrossed and re-crossed his legs in irritating satisfaction as Irene wiped away Ella’s tears and the two women kissed affectionately on the lips. Things were looking good for a harmonious Greek holiday.
