A Bridge Too Far!
Tess paid the fare as Jinny leapt out of the cab and bounded up to their front door.
“Come onnnn Tess, I’m starving..” Jinny groaned dramatically. Laughing, Tess caught up with her and followed her in through to the spacious kitchen. Jinny dived into the drawer searching for the takeaway menus. With a flourish she produced a handful and began pulling out her favourite chinese one.
“So the consensus of opinion is its chinese tonight?” Tess laughed again, happy to go along with Jinny’s choice. A few minutes later the order was phoned through and delivery was about an hour due to a busy night.
Grabbing a couple of bottles of water she guided Jinny back into the lounge and they both got comfortable on the large leather sofa. Tess glanced at Jinny deciding they had enough time for a talk. She had been concerned about Nicky, Jinny’s best friend. Tess had met up with them in Remy’s , their favourite bar, earlier. She had noticed Nicky was sporting a strapped wrist.
“So how was Nicky tonight, is she doing ok?”
“Uh, yeh, I think she’s ok honey. You know Nicky she’s always ok.” Jinny’s face bore a look of pure innocence, a bit too much innocence for Tess’s experienced eye. She knew there was more to this situation she had seen earlier in the bar. Nicky had a heavily strapped wrist and when she had asked about it, the answers were vague to say the least. Tess was also aware Jinny had spent most of the day with Nicky too and was therefore privy to what had actually happened.
“That was one solid strapping on her wrist I noticed. So how did Nicky hurt her wrist exactly sweetheart?”
Jinny elected to take a mouthful of water and then mumbled “ Um, I think she said it was…some..oh no it was… oh that’s right she’d slipped and caught it awkwardly “ as she fiddled with the bottle. Glancing up, she swallowed hard seeing Tess’s unwavering eyes staring directly at her.
“Oh I forgot to tell you Tess” turning to face her and launching into a diverting tactic “when I first met up with Nicky at the bar tonight, she was really down and upset . You wont believe what’s happened, honestly I was totally shocked, it was unbelievable, you know I cant believe…”
“How about cutting to the chase Jinny and actually telling me what I wont’ believe’ Tess commented.
“Well its seems Sara has left Nicky… walked out and just gone!”
“Oh no poor Nicky, gosh that must really have upset her . How is she doing Jinny? She is not going to be on her own tonight is she?” Tess was immediately concerned but then a thought struck her “I noticed the two of you seemed to be having quite a lively conversation though.”
“Dont worry Tess Nicky wasn’t as upset as I thought she’d be actually. Apparently she wasn’t too surprised because she felt it was on the cards anyway.”
“So what actually tipped the balance then causing Sara to go?”
“ Well as far as I understand it, it was due to Nicky’s wrist. Which I think was really unfair!” Jinny was almost pouting as she became involved in retelling Nicky’s story.
“Seriously Jinny?” Tess was surprised and there was a slight note of disbelief in her tone “You think Sara left her because Nicky hurt her wrist?”
Jinny was getting fired up at the injustice her best friend had suffered. “Oh no Miss Goody two shoes got on her high horse and started reeling off oth…uh…ah” Jinny’s tirade ground to a halt as realisation of what she was about to reveal smacked her in the face. Her face became scarlet and she dropped her head down wondering how the heck she was going to get out of this one.
“So Nicky has hurt herself before, is this right Jinny?” Tess was slightly bewildered. If Nicky had indeed hurt herself before, it still wouldn’t be a sound reason for Sara leaving, unless… she regarded Jinny carefully, watching her body language give her completely away to Tess’s Top intuition.
“Jinny, look at me please.” The tone was unmistakably Jinny’s Top speaking and she knew she had to do it. Slowly lifting her head she was caught and held in ‘the Look”, that special expression only Tops can carry off that ensure any brat within 5 miles would automatically freeze in.
“What is the real story behind all this Jinny and please no prevarication or lying by omission. Do you understand me?” the firm, commanding tone was quiet yet Jinny heard every tiny syllable.
Jinny nodded slowly and taking a deep breath she told Tess all about Nicky’s crazy stunts, jumping off the town bridge; skateboard leaping over cars seeing how many she could jump; riding a motorbike standing up on it; driving through the storm drains racing with Steph, one of their group of friends, and seeing not only who won but who reached the fastest speed…to name but a few!
Tess could not have been more shocked than if Jinny had admitted to doing this herself…then it occurred to her that Jinny knew an awful lot of actual detail about these maniacal stunts. Fixing her with a steely gaze Tess asked just one direct question “ How do you know so much about all of these stunts Jinny?”
The question hung in the air.
With her mouth dropping open Jinny looked like the proverbial deer caught in headlights!
“You were there at the time weren’t you?” Tess held her steely gaze on the spellbound girl, waiting for her response.
Jinny gulped as she realised there was no escape. She had blown it. Tess had caught on to what they had been doing. Knowing she had to answer she nodded her head in agreement.
“Did you take part at any time young lady?”
She nodded once more.
“Details Jinny, all of them please” came the calm response.
Jinny knew her best course of action right now was to tell everything. Whilst it would most definitely put her in serious trouble, to leave anything out would give her even more problems! Taking a deep breath she looked at Tess before dropping her eyes to focus on her hands as she played nervously with her fingers.
“You know the crowd that Nicky and I hang with, uh Steph and Mags and Hailey,
well we all got into playing Truth or Dare, you know the game where you either-“ Tess put her hand on Jinny’s arm “ I know the game Jinny, go on.”
“Well you see, it was like this, um we started playing it at the bar a few weekends ago and it became sort of like a regular thing. It was great and then we sort of…umm started making the dares bit more exciting and that was awesome, it was really great because everyone always chose the dares. So thats when the stunts sort of came into it. Then they got even more daring and thats when we really kicked it up a notch.”
Unaware that the recounting of their stunts was making her relive the rush they had felt at the time Jinny continued relating her story. However the heightened flush on her face, her sparkling eyes and the note of excitement in Jinny’s voice did not escape Tess’s notice. She chose to let her continue, knowing that whilst Jinny was talking through their exploits, in this state of mind Tess would actually get all the facts.
“Steph was normally the referee because she never drank and she would say if the dare was done or not. She also looked after everyone. Anyway I saw Nicky doing the skateboard car jumping and she managed to clear 4 cars which was one more than she was supposed to do so she was already number 1 on the leader board. Then there was the storm drain car races. That was a bomb! I rode with Nicky in her car and we raced against Mags and Hailey. Steph made sure we were all belted in properly and we shot off. We had to go 5 miles up to the turnpike junction and then back. Hailey and I had to record the speed our drivers reached whilst they just put their foot down and went. It was incredible, we won and Nicky managed to get to 105 mph whilst the others only got to 103…” there was a definite note of gleeful pride in Jinny’s voice before she caught sight of Tess’s formidable countenance causing the girl to suck in a breath of air and force herself to calm down. This was quickly achieved when she remembered what was going to happen to her or rather a certain part of her, as she felt her bottom tingle in anxious anticipation, in the very near future! Tess gave a slight nod of head encouraging the girl to continue.
“Well…uh…as Nicky got out of the car she caught her foot and cut her leg on a sharp stone. That was one time she told Sara about and when she broke her finger on the skateboarding. She never bothered about the time she twisted her kneecap because Sara was out of town with her boss so Nicky was able to get over it ok. Then uh…today it was …um well I had actually dared Nicky to jump off the bridge “ Jinny was sure she felt Tess stiffen at this but gamely carried on. “We all went over there, shouted 1..2..3… and Nicky just jumped straight off into the water but as she was climbing up the bank she slipped and caught her wrist. Thats what you saw today. Steph checked it and strapped it up and told her to get it looked at then took her home and thats when the whole thing with Sara occurred. “ Jinny paused looking at Tess and hoping she might be able to stop there.
“As I recall the rules of the game since you gave Nicky the dare , that means you will have just won your dare so, young lady, details of your dare please” Tess’s face was impassive as she waited for Jinny to continue.
Jinny hung her head knowing she was about to kiss goodbye to sitting comfortably for some little while.
With a quiet voice she mumbled ‘Well seeitwaslikethis” before a finger lifted her chin up forcing her to look at Tess who nodded once more for her to carry on.
“ Well it was… I had to climb a phone pole as high as I could without touching any cables using a belt. I managed to get quite high, well quite a bit high “ she glanced at Tess who was staring directly into her eyes “well I pretty much got to the top and never touched any cables and got down so I was perfectly ok and as youcanseeallinonepiece.” she rushed out at the end showing Tess her arms and legs assuring her she was perfectly fit and able bodied.
Tess sat quietly for a moment then spoke softly”is that everything now Jinny?”
Jinny nodded mumbling a quiet “Yes Ma’am thats it” as she hung her head once again.
After a couple of minutes in total silence Tess leant forward causing Jinny to lift her head up.
“Jinny I want you to stay right here for a short while and think over everything you have just told me. I am going to take a few minutes to myself to process exactly what you’ve told me. Let there be no misunderstanding, you are in trouble young lady and there are consequences to face, ok?”
Seeing Jinny’s resigned face and her mumbled “Yes Ma’am” Tess stood and walked through to the kitchen.
Jinny sat back on the sofa and blew out a huge breath. Although she knew she was not going to like the immediate future she actually felt better knowing Tess now knew everything. She started thinking over the crazy stuff she had just informed Tess about.
Meanwhile in the kitchen Tess had taken a bottle of iced water from the fridge and taken a deep draught hoping it would help settle her stomach from the churning fear that had hit her on hearing about the dangerous stunts her girlfriend and her mates had carried out. It had taken Tess every ounce of control not to reach out and spank the daylights out of her totally irresponsible brat. What on earth possessed her ….it was a totally crazy, blind, stupid and unbelievable series of events. Tess knew she needed this time to get the gut reaction out of her system so that she could then deal with the situation in the right frame of mind to help Jinny accept her consequences and learn from this.
Going to the bathroom Tess splashed her face with cold water, patted it dry and entered their bedroom. In the top drawer of her bedside cabinet Tess pulled out her wooden hairbrush. It was a beautifully crafted, large walnut backed brush. The wooden paddle back gleamed in the bedroom light. Tess checked the weight of it against her palm satisfied that it was what she was looking for.
Returning to the lounge she saw Jinny lost in a world of her own and Tess could see by the expression on Jinny’s face that she was thinking of what was about to happen now.
Jinny jumped slightly when she realised Tess had returned. Tess took her hand helping her to stand. Tess resumed her seat placing the hairbrush on the sofa beside her and pulled Jinny round to face her.
“Young lady as I have already said to you, there are consequences for your actions and we are going to deal with them now. So I want you to tell me why we are doing this, so that I know you understand it?” she waited as she watched Jinny carefully.
Jinny thought for a moment then “its because I broke the danger rule, you know the one about my safety and others too. We could all have been hurt. It was crazy but it seemed such a kick at the time.”
Tess knew Jinny was not being smart, she was being Jinny and saying it as she saw it! Tess smiled slightly causing Jinny to relax a fraction, knowing Tess was on her side.
“So because of your actions you will be getting a long spanking and I will be using my hairbrush as well as my hand. “ With that said Tess swiftly slipped Jinny’s sweatpants down and pulled her over her knee. Resting her hand on Jinny’s bottom Tess checked Jinny was ok and started delivering regular, medium swats to her pantie clad cheeks. Tess continued the pace, the intent being to warm her bottom up first. Jinny knew this and simply lay there adjusting to her position and knowing this was just the beginning.
After a few minutes Jinny could feel the heat rising and was glad she still had some protection.
Alas that was when Tess paused, pulled her panties down to her knees and resumed the spanking. Her strong hands now delivering swift, hard swats to the pink cheeks before her. She made absolutely sure to cover every inch of Jinny’s bare bottom. She alternated between several swats on one cheek then repeating it on the other cheek, then moving around covering every part of one cheek and doing the same to the other. Tess’s hand never wavered in its strong, swift action, the sound ringing out around the room showing how determined she was to ensure Jinny got the spanking she had so richly deserved.
Jinny was seriously feeling the fire being lit in her backside now. Already she was wriggling and squirming over Tess’s knee but found herself tucked under Tess’s arm keeping her not only safe but in prime position for her bottom to receive the full attention of Tess’s hand. Jinny couldn’t help but cry out every so often when a particularly hard swat landed or Tess kept to the same place a few times .
SWAT!… Oww… SWAT!… Owie Tess that… SWAT!… Owwch!.
Tess shifted her knee raising Jinny’s bottom up higher giving Tess full access to her sit spots. Her hand rained down a series of hard swats to each sit spot in turn causing Jinny to wriggle harder and yell out louder. Tess kept her attention on the sit spots and added the tops of Jinny’s thighs for good measure. Jinny felt like her bottom was on fire and was fully convinced her Top’s hand was made of iron.
Seeing Jinny’s bottom change from a light pink to a dark pink Tess knew she had almost finished the second part. Giving a further few swats across all the areas again Tess stopped and rested her hand on the hot cheeks below. Jinny managed to get her breath back. Her bottom was on fire she was sure. Nothing could feel any worse than this. Then Tess spoke.
“Right Jinny, I’m now going to use the hairbrush. You must not put your hand back do you understand this, it can be dangerous ok?”
Jinny nodded miserably….things had just got worse and yes it was going to feel worse. Tess had already put her leg over Jinny’s to prevent her kicking up but still keeping her bottom raised and in prime position. Tears pricked the back of Jinny’s eyes as she felt Tess’s hand lift.
Tess raised the brush high , checking for Jinny’s hand, ready to grab it should she move it, then brought the brush down with a firm, sound swat to one cheek before raising it and quickly delivering another sound swat to the other cheek.
Jinny’s body stiffened as the swats landed… a moment of nothing then a bone deep pain spread throughout her bottom. She could not believe how much that damned brush hurt.
“OWWww…OWOUCH..Tess” her hand flew back only to be instantly caught and pinned into the small of her back keeping it safe. Jinny squirmed madly but was securely held firm. There was no way she was escaping that evil brush!
As Tess brought the brush down in perfectly placed hard swats she lectured Jinny.
SWAT!…What on earth possessed you… SWAT!…to do such crazy… SWAT!… dangerous stunts…SWAT!
“Oww…OUCH… hon OWW, please OWww. Tess OWW” Jinny yelled and wriggled from side to side in vain. There was no escaping the brush as it landed swat after swat.
Tess continued the lecture as she turned her attention to the sit spots landing a series of sound swats ensuring Jinny got the message loud and clear.
Oh Jinny so did. Her yells were now promises of never doing it again. Swearing off any enjoyment ever again. etc. etc. The swats continued to fall hard across her sit spots and again included the tops of her thighs. Gradually Jinny slipped from fighting it all to starting to accept it. She had been crazy after. Gradually she relaxed over Tess’s knee as her tears started to fall. Tess sensed the change immediately but without breaking rhythm she gave three hard swats to each sit spot and one final swat to the centre then stopped.
Laying the brush to the side she gently rubbed Jinny’s back as the girl sobbed quietly.
After a few minutes Tess gently gathered her up in her arms and held her carefully on her lap. Jinny buried her head into Tess’s neck crying softly. Tess continued talking softly to Jinny whilst comforting her in her arms.
After a short while Jinny stopped crying, looking Tess in the eye and apologised for her actions. “I really am so sorry Tess. You are right I was totally crazy doing these things. I really promise to do things right next time. You’ll never have to spank me ever again, not in a million years ever!” she solemnly promised, her face deadly serious. It took all Tess’s resolve not to smile knowing this promise was never going to stand up..but then that’s why she loved this woman so much. Yes she was a first class brat but Jinny was her first class brat!
The door bell rang! Jinny leapt up crying “Chinese is here..OWW!” as she felt the full effects of the spanking. Glaring ruefully at a laughing Tess she walked gingerly out to the door to collect their takeaway!
