A terrible price for angry words: The Count's Discipline #SatSpanks

In The Count's Discipline, Sophia, the narrator-heroine, is constantly provoked by Countess Richildis' ladies-in-waiting. One of the most important moments of the story comes when Sophia loses her temper and is overheard calling Lady Agnes, "vile trash."
I knew what I must do: I kissed the rod, even as another sob came from me at the thought of what must now befall my bottom. 
The rod was removed; I closed my eyes. I heard the count move into position at my left, felt him lay his left hand upon the strap that held me at my waist. 
"Sophia, for this fault of conduct, you are to have thirty-six blows of the rod." 
"No, my lord," I cried. "Oh, please, please, no." 
He told me, later, that he felt that the only way that there would be any hope of keeping the peace was for him to beat me so severely that there was no doubt at all that he had done as Lady Richildis had asked. At that same time, he begged my pardon a thousand times that despite his love for me he nevertheless enjoyed beating me so much that he several times nearly forgot himself.

When Robert de Lourcy’s wife spurns his desire to spank her, the young count contents himself with disciplining other women of the court, until a rash decision to chastise the women of a captured castle arouses the ire of the local bishop and Robert is forced to seek absolution. In an act of penance, he visits a cathedral and stumbles upon a young girl named Sophia who has been set upon by robbers. Remembering his promise make amends for his sins, Robert takes pity on the destitute child, placing her in a convent so that she may be properly educated.  
When Sophia comes of age, the nuns at the convent grow more firm with her. The young woman is simultaneously drawn to their discipline but also unconvinced that their motivations are particularly noble. After Sophia’s education is complete, Robert brings her into his household to serve as his secretary. Though he has decided to never spank another woman again, when Sophia begs him to chastise her as the nuns did he cannot resist the opportunity to take her over his knee.  
The two begin a happy relationship based on Sophia’s acceptance of the count’s discipline, but he remains devoted to his wife until she dies tragically in childbirth. After that sad event, Sophia expects the count to marry another noblewoman, but will that new wife be jealous and send her away? Is she doomed to be cast back onto the streets from whence she came, or will Robert break the shackles of society and wed a commoner?

  1. Lovely, Emily. I lose myself in your writing.

  2. 36 strikes? Ouchie - she's not going to sit comfortably for a while :)

  3. what an amazing "reminder"- I love his comments

  4. That's severe, no doubt. Than again you must never call the lady of the house 'vile trash'.

  5. A very severe punishment indeed, but women didn't have many, if not any, rights at all in those days.Nicely written, Emily.

  6. I love when a sadist knows his own weakness... yum.

  7. Oh my, how did she ever make it? You are deliciously wicked, my dear Emily.

  8. To kiss the rod that would shortly be relentlessly raining down on her poor little bottom. I wonder if he went a bit easier on her for this? I hope her bottom was able to recover after those 36 blows. This makes me want to rub my butt in sympathy for her.
    Great snippet Emily ヅ ツ ッ

  9. Sounds very interesting :)

  10. At first, I was unsure exactly which rod she was required to kiss . A very titillating snippet, Emily. Thank you :)

  11. Ow. That's a lot of blows. I'm glad to see he was conflicted about the infliction, both loving it and hating it at the same time.

  12. I agree. 36 is a lot, but his thousand pardons did much to make up for it, I'm sure. All the same, I would not want to be Sophia in that position. Nope, not at all.
