In case you wondered, yes, I’m still working on the Iskendar series :)
“You promised!” Kai growled with fury as Lucian wrapped his leather clad arm around her waist and hefted her up from the ground.
“I am the king. Your king,” he reminded her, his dark curtain of hair obscuring them both as Kai attempted to fight his will. It was a battle she was destined to fail as his gloved hand reached between her thighs, parting them so that she could be pinned between his legs more effectively, one leg trapped underneath his armored knee whist the other flailed uselessly.
If he had not been in battle regalia, if he had not been fully three times her size and strength, Kai might have had a chance. As it was she struggled to no avail as he tore the soft cloth of her britches in his hurry to punish her. Her bare behind was brought into view, two round moons squirming furiously as the king’s leather clad palm clapped against them with a sound like thunder.
Kai, the great assassin of Agrenar was being brought to her knees – no, brought over his knee and punished like any common street urchin might be. She looked scrappy and small over Lucian’s lap, the curve of her bottom accentuated by its nakedness.
What had been pale flesh soon became red, for Lucian gave Kai no quarter as he spanked away at her backside, using his leather clad hand to full advantage. Kai’s howls of rage underwent a similar transformation, from defiant shouts to woeful cries. The king knew how to punish a disobedient brat most thoroughly. He seemed to enjoy it in fact. There was a smile on his lips as he prevented yet another attempt at escape and slapped low across her cheeks, catching tender thigh as a result. “None have mastered you, Kai of Agrenar, not even my good Queen managed the task. But I will not fail where others have. You will stand for your vittles, you will dance the jig of the red bottomed maid, you will learn to obey me.”
Kai gasped, unable to respond immediately for he punctuated each of his low, gravelly words with a hard slap that made her cheeks blush anew with red vigor.
“I will kill you,” she finally hissed when she had the breath.
“You will not, for you have pledged your fealty and your obedience,” Lucian reminded her. “And your word is your bond.”
Kai arched and squirmed, her bottom tingling and stinging as if a dozen hornets were dashing themselves against her swollen bottom. She could feel his large, strong hands holding her in place with a casual familiarity that was somehow more humiliating than if he’d been taking some sort of carnal pleasure in the punishment. His fingertips brushed lightly across the crest of her blazing cheeks as he patted her bottom with the gentle demeanor of a man secure in his possession.
