    Something You Need To Know: Part 1, Chapter 3

    Keep reading! I'll try to put parts up every so often. Next part at next res!<p> I arrived home, very tired. I stepped up the steps to the front door and turned the knob, as quietly as I could. I tried to be quiet so my mom wouldn't hear me.<p> She did. And she was furious! She ran out of the living room and crossed her arms. Her eyes were bloodshot and she looked as if she would kill me.<p> " Brooklyn Josephine Hayward! You are an hour late! I almost called the police," she scolded.<p> I bowed my head," I'm sorry, mom. I-I...I'm sorry," my eyes watered.<p> " Sorry isn't good enough! Get in the living room! Now!"<p> I knew what was coming. My mother was going to spank me. She always did this when I was naughty. But she hadn't done it for years. I was 15! Too old to be spanked. Not to mention my mom was super strong.<p> I walked into the living room and she nudged me towards the wall.<p>" Put your hands on the wall and don't turn around!" <p> " Yes, ma'am," I answered. I placed my hands on the wall and closed my eyes.<p> The first spank stung so bad, I howled in pain. SMACK! SMACK! SMACK! My eyes watered and my legs shook. I was breathing heavily.<p> " Mom! Please stop! It hurts so bad! Mom," I begged.<p> My mother turned my so I faced her. She raised the paddle once more and landed the blow on my hip.<p> I screamed and fell to the ground at her feet." Please!" <p> My mother grabbed my arm and lifted me up." Go to your room! You won't get any meals until I say!"<p> Tears fell down my cheeks and I ran up to my room. I threw myself on my bed and sobbed. I was starving. I hadn't had lunch because I lost my lunch money and mom said she was making my favorite meal tonight: Meatloaf. My stomach grumbled. <p> My butt was on fire and my lips tingled with the kiss Jeremy had given me. I thought about him. He had a girlfriend and his friends decided to jump me and violate my private areas.<p> I undressed and put my pajama's on. I left my window open because I was hot. Texas can get humid. Even indoors!<p> I laid in my bed and looked at my roof. I rolled over and closed my eyes. I fell asleep and dreamt.<p> I dreamed a cool breeze brushed over me. I was in a meadow and there were flowers everywhere. I picked some and noticed a shadow off to my right. The shadow was quite muscular. The breeze got colder. I rubbed my hand up and down my arms. The shadow approached and laid his hands on me. He pushed me back and I felt a wall behind me. The flowers disappeared and were covered up by concrete. The shadow chained me to the wall and I saw his face. It was Jeremy.<p> I screamed and woke up." It was just a dream. Just a dream!" I laid down and went back to sleep.<p> I hope you enjoyed this part.~ MidnightMoon
