On the same day and at the same time every week, her phone rings.
She knows who will be at the other end of the line, but she quickly answers anyway. She knows exactly what he is going to say.
"You're going to get a good spanking when I get home. Be ready."
She's heard those words many times before. Sometimes the tone is light and teasing. Other times he might sound strict and firm. The effect on her, however, is always the same. A sense of nervous anticipation overtakes her. Her pulse quickens. Her breathing becomes rapid. In spite of what he's promised, she can't wait for him to arrive. Or perhaps it's because of what he promised.
Either way, it doesn't matter. There's only one thing that's important right now. When she hears his car pull into the driveway--when she sees him approaching the front steps--when she hears the keys in the door--she knows what she must do.
And even after all this time, even though it still sometimes amazes her.......she hurries to obey.
