Chapter 4
As the light filtered through their bedroom window Abby's eyes blinked open. "Eeeh. It's Christmas Eve!" she squeaked before swinging her legs over the side of the bed.
"Hold on their a minute Abs. We have something we have to take care of remember?"
"Come onnn Timmy there's so much to do. I have cookies to bake and presents to wrap and all KINDS of things to get ready."
"Well," he said while getting a firm grip on the back of her pj's. "I wrapped all the presents that were here when you were off on your adventure last night and the rest of the stuff can wait."
"But..."
Tim settled himself against the head-board and patted his lap. "The quicker we start the quicker you can get on with what ever else you have planned."
Abby stuck her bottom lip out in a perfect pout but she knew that look on her husband's face. He wasn't angry anymore but he wasn't going to change his mind and let her out of her punishment either. She crawled across the bed and lay over his lap. It was on the tip of her tongue to ask him to make it snappy but she managed to resist the urge and she was glad because he seemed to be making it snappy enough. His hand was smacking her hard and fast, all over her now bared backside. He paid special attention to the crease where her bottom met her thighs. By the time he stopped she was sobbing into the crook of her arm.
"Nearly done Abs." he said.
Her head shot up. "Nearly?" she sobbed. "I thought you were finished."
"You lied to me Abby. You know what that means."
She could hear something rattle and it was a sound she knew too well. The belt. "Nooo.' she wailed. "I don't want the belt."
"If you don't want the belt then don't lie. It's that simple."
"You're mean." Abby turned her head and the vision of Tim's own bare legs were almost too much temptation. How she would have loved to lean over and sink her teeth into one of those legs but she was in enough trouble already without courting more.
Tim doubled the belt and brought it down with a sharp crack across both squirming cheeks.
"Ah!" Abby moaned into the bedclothes.
"Because it's Christmas I'm going to take it easy Abby and only give you one for every hundred dollars you spent on that doll. Count them."
"Can I count down?"
"Yes you can count any way you want."
"Ok." She winced when the leather bit into her already tender cheeks. "Ow, five."
"I said six Abby."
"You already did one."
"That was for calling me mean and thinking about biting my leg."
"How did you know?"
"Its the same way Rex looks when he's about to attack a bone."
"Well I didn't do it."
"That's good; for both of us because you would have been bending over the bed and getting a lot m ore than six if you had."
"I figured." Abby sighed. "Six." she decided to cut her losses and just do as Tim said.

"How long now Mommy 'til everyone gets here?" Jess asked.
"About five minutes less than the last time you asked me. Honey the family have a lot of preparing to do before they come."
"What they got to prepare?" the little girl asked climbing up on the stool at the counter where Abby was working some cookies. "You're cooking and Santa brings the presents."
"Well that's true, but they will be bringing some of the food and there's still other presents besides the ones Santa is bringing."
"There is?" Jess asked, wide eyed. "For me?"
"I'm sure some of them will be for you but what is the Christmas rule about visitors Jess?"
"Don't ask no one did they bring you a present."
"That's right. It's polite to wait and see if someone brought you a gift."
"Can we open one present tonight?"
"One."
"Yay!"
"Where did Dyl and Daddy go?"
"They went to the store to get some last minute things."
"Where's Sarah?"
"She and Zac are upstairs playing with the baby."
Can I help with the cookies?"
"Sure. You can make the stars." Abby passed Jess a cutter and showed her how to press out the shapes.
"Mommy, how many hours until Santa comes?"

"They're here, they're here, they're here!" Jess screeched all the way to the front door when she finally heard the door bell.
"Maddie!" Jess said.
"And Bef, Bef is here too." Beth called from behind her.
"Yay. You both are sleeping in my room. Daddy said we can put our sleeping bags in the castle. Come on."
"Hi Abs." Kim said staggering in with armfuls of food. "Are you gonna get the gifts?" Kim whispered to Gibbs.
"Yes. Right after I put this lot under the tree I'll ask Tim where he wants me to hide the special gifts."
"Good thinking."
"Of course it was." Gibbs chuckled. "Hope I don't come across my surprise gift."
"You won't. I have that tucked away here somewhere where you won't find it."
"Good thinking." Gibbs narrowed his eyes. Something was a little off, he couldn't put his finger on it but something just wasn't sitting well. He didn't have long to think about it though before the Dinozzo's turned up on mass.
"Where's Dyl?" Kyle asked as he bustled in with a giant dish of lasagne. "Where do I put this Dad?"
"In the kitchen Genius." Tony said slapping him lightly on the back of the head. "Hey Boss. Kim." Aviva was getting big now and she gurgled happily and kicked her legs in her Daddy's arms when she caught sight of Gibbs. "Someone has a fan."
"Come to Gibbs." Gibbs said holding out his arms.
"Ibb, Ibb." the baby said happily.
Ziva came in last. Michael was in front of her with a pile of gifts and Hannah was in her arms. "Hello hello. We made it at last."
"Hello there Hannah." Gibbs said.
"I get this one." Kim said to Gibbs. "You can' t hog all the babies; you have to share."
"I can't help it if they love me." Gibbs said.
"Where's Dyl?" Mike asked.
"He's right here. He's just helping Jimmy and Amber get there things in. " Tim said coming in finally from the store. "The supermarket was horrendous. Why do so many people leave things until the last-minute?"
"You did." Tony said taking some bags out of Tim's hands.
"True I guess."
"All we're missing now is Ducky."
"I'm here." Ducky said. "And look who I found on my way in. Master Jack, my favourite little redhead."
"Come on in everyone." Abby said. "We have cookies."

XXX

They all spread out in front of the fire while Abby served cookies and Tim passed around hot chocolate. Abby hovered around doing anything that would keep her from having to sit. Kim got up and followed her out to the kitchen.
"You get caught?"
"Uh huh. You?"
"Not so far. He spanked you didn't he?"
"Of course he did. Twice."
"Ouch."
"Oh well at least one of us got away with it. Not that you should get in trouble anyway, it was our money."
"I know right?"
"Of course they do kind of have this thing about lying. They don't understand the creative use of describing circumstances at all."
"It's a male thing." Kim giggled.
"What have you two been up to?" Ziva asked.
"A last minute job we did for Santa that got Abby spanked."
"Sounds like a story I would like to hear." Ziva said with a smile.
Between the two of them they filled Ziva in on the details of their night.
"It was fun and I managed to not get caught." Kim grinned.
"Yet." Ziva said.
"You're not going to tell."Abby was shocked.
"Of course not but look at who is deep in conversation out there."
All three peered in to see Gibbs and Tim chatting away. When Gibbs turned his glare towards the kitchen all three heads ducked back around where they couldn't be seen.
"Uh oh." Abby said.

Christmas Episode Chapter 3






Ok really sorry for the lateness. Christmas and family happened and then Fan fiction net wasn't working for me. I kept getting an error 304 or something. Anyway fixed now so here it is (this chapter at least) I didn't get this story finished but I will continue it until I do. I hope you enjoy the extra updates. Keep commenting on my blog Creatively Constance and I will choose a winner tomorrow even though the story isn't finished. Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas :)

Chapter 3


“Abby, I asked you a question.” Tim's gaze was unwavering. He knew he wasn't going to like Abby'a answer but she was going to give him one. They'd talked before about her extravagant spending and they'd already spent a small fortune on the kids this Christmas.
Abby paused for a second while she put together her answer in her head. “I know how much you love Jess Timmy and I Know that you understand that there is no way you could possibly measure the love you have for a child and the things that are important to them.”
“Cut the crap Abby. How much money did you give the man for the doll?” Tim was very fast losing patience. He knew how Abby operated. She talked ten to the dozen while she tried to bamboozle him into thinking whatever she had done was right. Well not this time. “In American dollars exactly how much did you spend on the doll.” For emphasis he slapped two wooden spoons on the counter. A big one and a smaller one.



Abby looked at the two spoons with wide eyes. “But it's Christmas Timmy. What's money when it comes to your daughter's dreams?”
“Fine. You just chose the ending to your adventure.” He picked up the larger of the spoons in one hand and took Abby's hand with the other. “March.”
Abby clip clopped noisily behind Tim all the way up the stairs towards their bedroom. “I'm sorry Tim, really I am. I mean I'm not sorry that got the...” she quietened as they shuffled passed Jess's room. “you know the thing but Im sorry that it cost a lot and I'm sorry that I didn't tell you where I was going.”
“What do we call that Abby when you leave stuff out?” Tim shut the bedroom door.
Abby sighed “A lie of omission but I didn't mean to lie I was just trying to explain.”
“Abby if you're not going to be honest with me then at least be honest with yourself. You didn't tell me because I wouldn't have gone along with yours and Kim's crazy plans.”
“Maybe I didn't tell you because you weren't being very approachable.”
“You know that's not true. I went out several times looking for the doll you wanted and when I couldn't find it I did my best. You know that's true Abs.”
“I know Timmy. I didn't mean to make you feel like you hadn't tried.”
“I DID try.” Tim ran a hand through his hair with frustration. “I'm not going to debate this with you anymore. Go and stand in the corner.”
“But...” Abby jumped when the forgot spoon clapped off her bottom noisily.
“Now.”
Rubbing her bottom Abby hustled it into the corner, shedding her high boots as she went. She didn't even flinch when Tim tugged her pants to her knees leaving her standing there naked from the waist down.

“You're still up.”
“Uh huh.” Gibbs said, sipping the mug of coffee in his hand. “Get your surprise sorted?”
“Sure did.”
“Am I going to like it?”
“Who says it's for you?”
“I'm assuming that if it's a surprise from me then it has to be for me. Either that or you're up to no good.” Gibbs was slightly suspicious but not enough to call Kim on anything. After all if she was out getting a gift for him he could complain or make a fuss.
“What kind of no good could I get up to on Christmas Eve.” Guilt twisted Kim's tummy but she forced herself to smile. “Did you have any trouble getting the girls to sleep?”
“No they were fine. Excited about Christmas but fine. Oh and Beth wants to know if we are going to make shortbread cookies to take to Aunt Abby's. Apparently her Nanna always made shortbread at Christmas.”
“We are definitely making shortbread in the morning. I have Louise's recipe still.”
“Then we're all set to go for Christmas. I finished off the last of the presents for the other kids tonight. Are you sure you want to spend the whole night there? Isn't it going to be bedlam getting the kids all to sleep?"
“There's enough rooms to keep them separate if we have to. It'll be fun.”
“Of course it will.”
Kim didn't miss the hint of sarcasm in her husband's voice. “There's enough adults there to keep the kids under control and besides your Dad will be there. You know how he loves to read to all the kids.”
“So does Duck. We'll see who wins the battle between those two.”
“They'll work it out.”
“For now bed. I want to get as much sleep as we can; I have a feeling tomorrow we won't be getting much at all.”
“At least we'll all be awake and have fun together. Relax Jethro, it'll be just like a big slumber party.”

“Come on over Abby.” Tim called.
Abby chewed her lip nervously as she waddled awkwardly towards her husband, perched on the edge of their bed. It had been some time since he'd taken her over his knee but his intention was clear. Her tummy fluttered with a mixture of excitement and dread. That was a hell of a big spoon. “If I tell you how much the doll was will you be really mad?”
“It's not a matter of being really mad Abby. It's all about being unreasonably erratic with money and about trust. I don't cover things up with you and I don't adjust the truth to cover my own ass.”
“Let's be honest here Timmy your ass isn't the one that's in the line of fire.”
“Don't turn this around on me. I didn't do anything wrong.”
“I know. I'm sorry.”
“How much did you pay for the doll?”
“Before I tell you, I need to explain that we agreed on a price but then the man got a higher offer and so he upped the price. There was nothing I could do.”
“Abby. The man conned you. Two women with money in their pockets and desperation all over their faces, he knew he could push the boundaries.”
“Maybe but I wanted the doll.”
“How much?”
“It's gonna seem like a lot.” Abby shifted nervously on the spot she was standing between Tim's legs. She could feel the warmth of his hands on her bottom. The very same hands that were about to spank her. When he gave her cheeks a slight squeeze she answered immediately although very quietly. “ Six hundred dollars.'
“Six? SIX HUNDRED dollars?”
Abby was sure that Tim's eyes were about to pop right out of his head and roll across the floor. There was a vein that she had never seen before that was pulsing at his temple. “See I knew you'd think it sounded like a lot of money.”
“I IS a lot of money Abby. It's a MONSTROUS amount of money.”
“I know. I kind of got carried away.”
Tim shook his head and then tossed Abby over his knee. He picked up the spoon and smacked Abby smartly with it six times before standing her up. “That was to be going on with. THIS is not over but I'm too angry to take care of all your punishment tonight.”
“That really hurt.”
“Good. Don't expect me to apologise. You deserved it. Expect another spanking in the morning and whatever else I can think of that will make you understand the value of a dollar. Honestly Abby, just when I think you have turned into a grown up you go and do something that is completely ridiculous.”
Abby stood there feeling sore and lonely. Tim hadn't even given her a hug. “I'm sorry.”
“Go and get ready for bed. It's been a long day.” Tim held her pants while she stepped out of them and watched as she walked to the bathroom with her pink bottom on display.


Abby stood under the pulsing spray watching the suds as they slid off her body and circled the drain taking with it what was left of her Christmas spirit. She had been so excited about their big family Christmas but if Tim was mad at her then it all would mean nothing. He was the centre of her world.

Tears ran down her face and she squeezed her eyes shut trying not to give into the sadness that was welling up inside her. She'd brought this on her self. Why hadn't she just let it go and settled for the doll that Tim had found for Jess.


Try as she might she couldn't stop it. He shoulders started to shake, the lump in her throat burst and the uncontrollable sobs began. As she reached to turn off the water she felt the familiar warmth behind her. Her rock was back and she leaned into him as he wrapped her in his warm embrace. “It'll be ok Abs. You're still in trouble but we'll save Christmas.

Oh Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby !!! Christmas Episode Chapter 2




I hope everyone is enjoying this short story and thank you to those who answered the questions on my blog.
Chapter 2

“Where is this place anyway?” It seemed to Abby that they'd been driving in circles for about an hour. She loved how the houses were prettily decorated though.
“I think we missed the street.” Kim pointed to the directory thing. “Can you reset that thing and put in the address again?”
“Sure.” Abby said pressing the buttons and settling back to sip her cafpow. “So Gibbs bought your potatoes story?”
“Um sort of.” Kim winced.
“You told him didn't you?” Abby said.
“Not exactly. He didn't buy the potato story for a second. I told him I had a lat minute surprise I had to get and that he shouldn't ask any other questions or he'd ruin the surprise.”
Abby giggled. So what surprise do you have for him?”
“The hand grinder thing he asked me to buy.” Kim winced.
“Not exactly a surprise.”
“Details Abs. We'll stop at the store and get him a surprise on the way home.”
“Like?”
“That's a problem for later. Hey! There's the street.”
“Yay.” Abby started bouncing in her seat when they pulled up outside a large house. “This is it. This is the one. I hope it's the right doll.”
“Relax Abs. The picture of the doll was spot on. There's only one way to find out.”


The guy who lived there must have seen them pull up outside of his house because by the time they got to the front door he was waiting. “Kim?” He asked.
“Kim nodded and smiled. This is my friend Abby, the doll is for her daughter.”
“Pleased to meet you Abby.” He held out his hand to shake hers.
“Thank you so much. You don't know what a life saver you are. I was desperate. My husband drove around everywhere looking for a Saige. They are so hard to get.”
“I can imagine, with Christmas being just a day a way and all.” The man still had his smile in place but there was something about the look in his eye that told Abby and Kim that something had changed. Kim nudged Abby.
“I'll just go get the doll and show it to you, it is the genuine article though.”
“That'd be great.” Abby said.

“I have a weird feeling.” Abby shuffled on her platform boots. “He's seems nice and sort of genuine but something's a little off. You don't think he's going to try to sell us a fake do you?”
“I hope not.”
“Well I'm not paying for a fake. Timmy would kill me. He's probably going to kill me anyway when he realises what I spent on this doll when he told me to drop it. I'm just hoping the look on his Princess's face will make him melt.”
“And save your ass?”
“Yes or at least soften his blows a little.”
“Let's just hope we don';t both end up in trouble.”
“Christmas is all about hope Kimmy my friend.”
“Hmm.”


“Here you go, brand new and still in the box.”
“It's perfect.” Abby said with a sigh. She tried to take it but the guy held the package with a firm grip. “Is there a problem?”
“No not really. It's just that my girlfriend bought this doll and she was a bit upset that I was going to let it go for the price. She had a better offer.”
“How much better?” Kim asked.
“Double.”
“You're joking. You're already charging double what the doll was worth.” Kim said.
“I'm not forcing you to buy it Lady. I'm just letting you know that the price has gone up through no fault of mine. If you think you can get a better deal somewhere else you're welcome to try.”
“You're trying to cheat us!” Abby said pointing her finger in his direction and narrowing her eyes. “My husband is in law enforcement Mr. You're going to be real sorry you tried to rip us off.”
“I'm sure I will. I'll take that as a no, it's now too expensive. We'll sell to the other interested party.”
“No! Wait.”
“Abby.” Kim tried desperately to make eye contact with Abby but she was in full panic mode. She could see Jess's Christmas slipping away from her.
“I'll pay. I didn't say I wouldn't pay, I just said that you were ripping us off and you are but it's Christmas and I'm willing to be ripped off just this once.”
“Abby?” Kim said nudging her friend.
“It's ok really. It'll be worth it to see her face.”
“I hope so.”

Abby passed over the money and took the doll into her arms and hugged it, box and all. “This will be the best Christmas ever, despite you taking advantage.”
“Glad to be of service ladies.”
“You are SO lucky we lied to our husbands or you'd be one really sorry thief.” Abby said. She wanted so much to ring Tim and tell him what this guy had done. That though would mean admitting a lot of things that would be better left alone.
The door slammed in their faces leaving them no other choice but to leave.


“Well I guess we had the last word.” Abby said tottering down the snowy path still clutching her Saige.
“We need to get home.”
“First we need to get a surprise for Gibbs and some potatoes.”
“Yeah, how hard can that be; finding a surprise when the only thing still open is the grocery store.”


XXX

The two women trudged through the supermarket looking for the world's best gift.
“A shave pack?” Abby suggested holding up a box.
“Yeah, nothing says Christmas surprise like a razor and a bottle of Old Spice aftershave.” Kim said with a giggle.
“How about a mexican pack. We could make a hamper. You know; some corn chips some salsa and a can of refried beans.”
“Are you serious Abby?”
“No just desperate. It's really late and we've been through this place like a fine tooth comb. There's nothing.”
“Tools.”
“Huh?”
“Tools.” Kim pointed to a sign that lead to the tool isle. If she was correct, supermarkets only had the most basic of tools. Just the way Jethro like them. There must be something here Jethro would like.”
“Let's try.”


Twenty minutes later Abby and Kim left armed with everything a wood working enthusiast could want. The old-fashioned kind at least. The even got a container to put it all in.
“You think we'll be able to fool Gibbs?”
“What on earth are you going to tell Tim about where we've been for the last couple of hours?”
“Something 'll come to me.”
“Are you going to show him the doll?”
“Hell no. This shit has Santa's look and feel all over it. Let's let him take the credit. That would be better for everyone, don't you think?”
“I think you're crazy...but fun. I had a blast Abby.”
“Me too. Let's revisit this conversation tomorrow when we tell the others what happened.”

XXX

It was after midnight when Abby crept through the back door as quietly as she could.
“Abigail McGee! Where the hell have you been!” Tim scolded holding up her phone. “You didn't even take your phone. You've been gone for hours.”
“I know, I'm sorry Tim I guess I forgot.”
“It didn't take you that long to buy potatoes Abby.” It didn't escape him that she actually wasn't carrying any potatoes.
“No, I kind of forgot the potatoes.”
“Abby I'm going to give you one chance to tell me the truth. What's that you have behind your back?”
“You don't understand Timmy it was a sure thing. I had to.”
Tim reached behind Abby and his eyes widened when he realised what she had. “Where did you find it?”We bought it off a guy who had it for sale on Ebay. I know you said to drop it Timmy but I couldn't.”So you snuck around behind my back and drove to goodness knows where by yourself. That guy could have been an axe murderer Abby!”But he wasn't and I wasn't alone I was with Kim.”Well that's something. Not that I can see Kim defending you against a crazed maniac.”Kim rang Tim and I had to try. I just had to.”I guess we can return the other doll.” Tim said.
See it's not so bad.”So how much did you pay for this doll?”This doll?” Abby tried to keep the look of panic from creeping across her face. She hated it when she was forced to adjust the truth.

What did Abby and Kim get for Gibbs surprise?

Oh Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby!!! Christmas Episode (fanfic)




This is a Christmas episode from my long running NCIS story on fanfictionnet. It didn't fit into the time line so I decided to do a seperate one. 

Oh Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby!!! Christmas Episode



Part 1






“Seriously Abby, I don't think it matters. Jess will be just as happy if we choose another doll.”
Abby stared at her husband like he'd completely lost his mind. Hadn't she explained to him that Jess had told Santa that she wanted a Saige doll? It was imperative that they find her one. It wasn't that Abby was into spoiling kids, she wasn't. But Santa wishes were something else entirely. “Are you serious? Clearly you've never been a little girl.”
“Obviously.”
“Exactly. If you had then you'd know how beyond important it is that we find it. Her whole perception of Santa and the magic of Christmas could be ruined for life Timmy. For life.” “Ok, we can leave the kids here with Sarah and we'll go to one last mall but if it's not there then we're choosing something else. Clear?”
“Clear Timmy but I have to start the preparations for tomorrow. Everyone will be here for lunch you know that.” She flung her arms around him and kissed him soundly. “I know you'll find it Tim, I just know it.”
“Feel it in your bones?”
“Yes I do.”
Tim hugged his wife tightly. “Just so you know? I know that I'm being manipulated here Abby. You're just lucky that I love you and Jess to the moon and back.”
“What about us?” Dyl asked.
“I love you and Aaron to the moon and back too Dyl.” Tim kissed the top of his son's head ignoring the growing boys wince.
“That's probably a good thing Dad cos this little guy stinks.”
“Merry Christmas Mommy.” Tim chuckled. “I have to go.”
“Can I come Dad?”
“Not this time Dyl.”
“You're getting to be such a big boy Dyl.” Abby said. “I bet you'd be pretty good at changing diapers just like a grown up now.”
“No thanks Mom. I'm happy being a kid.” He help his brother up to his mother with a wrinkled nose.
“Ok then stinky boy. It's just you and Momma.” Abby kissed the baby chubby cheek.
“Da da.” he said.
“Is not here. Looks like you're stuck with me big guy.”
***

“There was a slight problem.” Tim wandered in with an arm full of packages, all from the American girl store.
Abby ran to Tim and grabbed at the bags he'd picked up and started rifling through them. Her instincts as a forensic scientist urging her to find the answer instead of waiting. This isn't Saige.” she said, her eyes wide as the knowledge of what this meant trickled through. She never should have sent a man on such an important task.
“I know, Saige was all sold out but I can fix that. “
Tim grabbed Abby's arm and towed her up the stairs to the their bedroom where no one would walk in on them. They couldn't risk little minds being scarred for life by finding that it was in fact their parents that had provided their gifts. Well Jess anyway. Dyl suspected but he hadn't asked the big question yet thank goodness. Abby would have been happy to keep the illusion going for life.

Tim took the bags from Abby.
She watched as her husband spread a slew of Paige outfits and accessories across their bed. “Those are just outfits Tim.”
“I know.” he said pulling a doll out from another bag triumphantly. “but I have this.”
“That's Caroline. She's a historical doll.”
“She had long blonde curls just like our Jess.”
“But she's Caroline.”
“Now she's Caroline. Once we undress her and put on Paige's clothes then she'll be Paige.”
“With blonde hair.”
“Yes. See it's perfect.”
“No it's not perfect.” Abby crossed her arms. “Is that what you really think Timmy? That you can just dress a person up in someone else's clothes and they become that person. Like if I died or something then you could just get a new wife and throw on a checked skirt and a cute t-shirt and draw on a few tattoos and boom new wife, new life. Don't forget the platform boots Tim or she won't be the real thing.”Abby it's a doll.”It's no ordinary doll Tim.”I know that Honey. Look, I got the books too. I think this toy is actually a really good idea. It has a great message.”Look inside the book Tim. Paige has brown hair.”Abby she decided she wanted this two days before Christmas. I did the best I could.”She'll be upset and she's going to think that Santa didn't love her enough to give her what she asked for.” Abby picked up each accessory packet and tossed it down on the bed.“No she's not. We'll just tell her that Santa wanted her to have a doll that looked just like her. This is what it is now. We are not spending anymore time looking and we're not spending anymore money. It's ridiculous how much this doll has cost.”
“I guess.” Abby grumbled, sighing miserably.
“Smile.”
“I can't, I feel like Christmas is ruined.
“Abby there's only one thing that will ruin Christmas around here and that's your attitude. Fix it or I'll fix it for you.”
“You just don't get it Timmy. I don't want Jess disappointed, that's all.”
“Neither do I and she won't. She has lovely gifts Abby. She'll take her cue from you. If you're happy, she'll be happy.”
“Do you think Dyl has enough gifts?”
“He has plenty of gifts and so does Aaron. Even though he would probably rather play in the boxes.”
“Tim I really do appreciate what you tried to do here.” Abby slipped her arms around her tired husband's neck. “I love you but I have to go back to my cookies now.”
“It'll be fine Abby, you'll see. Do you want me to start wrapping?”
“That'd be great. Lock the door after me. Just leave the doll stuff. I'll see what I can do with her later before I go to bed.”
***

Abby pressed out another batch of gingerbread cookies. She'd done several trays of boy ones and now she was finishing up the last tray of girls. She wasn't a hundred percent happy with her baking efforts this year but this doll thing was a distraction. Tim didn't understand. They'd been so busy at work that she hadn't even read Jess's Christmas wish list. Of course she would have had to delve into the secret place to find it. Jess had been testing whether Santa could really find her list without her posting it to the North Pole. If Abby hadn't taken the kids to see Santa she never would have found out that Paige was who Jess wanted. Of course Kim had ordered hers weeks ago for Maddie and Beth, such wads the life of a non working mother. You got to stay on top of things. Maybe she should give up work and stay home. Her phone rang and she quickly wiped her hands and answered it.
“Hi.” Kim said. “How did you go. Did Tim manage t get it?”
“Nope. Sold out.”
“Oh Honey No.”
“He has this crazy idea that we can dress a Caroline doll in Paige clothes and try and fool Jess.”
“Oh that is such a man solution.”
“Gibbs wouldn't make that mistake.”
“Maybe not.”
Abby could hear Kim tapping away on her computer in the background. “I better go and finish these cookies.”
“No wait. I think I have it.”
“What?” Abby didn't even know what her friend had but she couldn't help feeling hopeful.
“Ebay. Someone has one; it's a a bit more expensive but it new and in a box. Pick up only.”
“How much more expensive?”
“Double.” Kim said. “I know it's a lot. That's what these people do. They buy up the popular things and sell them to the desperate people online for twice the amount.”
“Well I;m desperate. Where is it?”
“An hour away.”
“That's nothing. Road trip?”
“Yeah sure. Why not. Are you going to tell Tim where you're going?”
“Of course I am. To get more potatoes.” She giggled.
“Then that's what I'll tell Leroy. He can watch the girls for a while, they're almost ready for bed anyway.”
“Kim you're a life saver.”

The first day's question is what doll does Jess want for Christmas?

Answer the question in the comment section today and after the next two days installments and I will draw a random winner on Christmas eve. You can choose one copy of any of my books as a prize.

Back to Saturday Spankings!

It's good to be back. Sorry I haven't been contributing regularly like everyone else's this time of year my life's been crazy.
Today for my eight sentences I'd like to share some of my new Christmas novella A Hot Aussie Christmas. In this segment Emma and Toby are just starting to heat up their relationship.







“You're wearing way too many clothes.” He pushed her away enough to manoeuvre her in to standing on the step. Toby slipped his fingers into the edges of the thong and slid it down to her knees. “You're shaved.”

She nodded mutely and gasped as he pulled her close and planted a kiss on her soft mound. “Oh God.”

“Your skin is so soft.” He licked her just once, right in the cleft of her womanhood. Oh how he wanted to bury his face in there and taste her sweet juices. He pushed her back and stood himself. If this was to be their first time, she deserved it to more than a quick bang over the side of the spa.

“What's wrong?”

“Oh baby nothing. I just think we should take this inside. If your sure that is.”

“I'm sure.”

Saturday Spankings and a Corbin’s Bend taster!







Last week I did my eight sentences on my new release The Man Of Her House. I’ve decided this week to go back to the scene preceding that one. Alyssa in an effort to wind Jesse up left the house a mess again and stole some of his beers from the fridge after he expressly told her that she was not to touch them because she was yet to turn 21. Hope you don’t mind me posting the scenes put of order.









             Alyssa was yelling within minutes of Jesse’s hand landing. “You stop that!” She kicked and fought and flung her hand back. “I didn’t do anything!” she wailed through ragged breaths.
             “No, you didn’t unless you were being contrary. You didn’t clean up after yourself, you weren’t considerate at all. You took my beers and drank them when I specifically said no. You’re underage!”
             “Just barely!” Alyssa squealed loudly. “No!”

Here’s a teaser from that special place that’s coming in 2014…Corbin’s Bend. Ten authors with ten spanking stories to tell.

Zach locked the car and lowered the garage door. He smiled to himself. Little hiccups like that little argument were about as bad as it got these days. It was a far cry from the way it used to be before they moved to Corbin's Bend. Their lives had been a disorganised nightmare. He'd worked all day in a school where it was hard to decide what was worse about the students; their inappropriate dress, their filthy mouths or their total lack of respect for the education that was delivered to them for free. There was the odd little treasure that made it all worth while but on the whole, it was depressing. Home wasn't much better. Luckily they'd found this place and it saved them. Now they had a lovely home in an ordered neighbourhood and most of all, the one thing he wanted for his family...peace.

Saturday Spankings! The Man Of Her House Excerpt!



Today for my eight sentences I’m going to share an excerpt from my new release The Man Of Her House. In this snippet, Jesse has spanked Alyssa and is forcing her to clean her mess.







Alyssa stood with narrowed eyes and a giant pout. One hand was cupping her sex as she reached for her shorts and underwear.
Jesse shook his head at her attitude. “You won’t be needing those,” he said quietly. “Wearing skimpy clothes seems to be your thing, so you can do the cleaning with your pants off.”
Alyssa’s eyes boggled. “No way!”
“Yes way. Unless you want to go get your hairbrush and lay back over my knee. Your choice.”
“Fine,” she said. “I’ll give you a thrill.”

Back to Saturday Spankings!!






Hi, it’s been a while. I hope you’ll all forgive me for being so slack.

Today for my Saturday Spankings I’d like to share something from my story Monkey Business that will be available on Bethany’s Woodshed. No cover yet sorry. The story started as my Spankee Doodle Dandy entry this year. I decided to continue it on. 




Are you fucking kidding me?” she blurted out when she opened her eyes and jumped out of bed the next morning. The sun was beaming through her bedroom window like a beacon, that could only mean one thing. Her alarm didn't go off. She tried to turn on her phone but it was as dead as a doornail. All her good intentions of a fresh start and a different attitude had just slipped away on the first morning. She must have forgotten to put the stupid thing on charge. Ben was going to...he was going to ...her mind swam with images of what she knew he was going to do but she was having trouble making herself even think the words.

  THE PROMISE



“Because we don't do it here. Halloween is NOT an Australian holiday.”
“So what!?”
“No.”
“You do that to everything!”
“Do what?”
“Just say no and think that's going to be the end of the subject.”
“It is the end of the subject.”
“You're impossible!”
Jess stormed away making sure to slam the door twice on her way through to the bedroom. It was true that trick or treating wasn't really an Australian holiday but Pete didn't get it, more kids were doing it every year. It was hard for their kids to miss out. The year before after her big compromise had gone over like a lead balloon she'd made a promise to her kids and she didn't intend to break it...

It was Halloween and Pete had put his foot down. No trick or treating! It was up to her to do something to try and appease their picky progeny. She'd bought lots of lollies and she encouraged her little lovelies to dress up, telling them they were going to play their own game of trick or treat for Halloween. It was a poor substitute but it was better than nothing.
The kids dressed in their finery and stood in the living room with their pillowcases eagerly awaiting their surprise.

“Here's the idea. You're going to love this.” She watched as hope if not actual enthusiasm flashed across their faces. “I want you to close your eyes and wait a few minutes and then knock on the first bedroom door.”
“You serious?” the eldest and most unenthused of the kids asked. At eleven he was just learning the joy of sarcasm and had an astute radar of all things dumb.
“It'll be fun.” She gave him the look reserved for older brothers about to ruin his younger brother and sister's fun. At least they didn't see the roll of his eyes just before he closed them.

Jess ran up the hallway and disappeared behind one of the bedroom doors, flopped on a witch's hat and stuck on a fake mole.
“Trick or treat.” they called sadly.
She opened the door with a deep cackle and dropped handfuls of treats into their bags.“Close your eyes again.” she whispered.

Behind every door in the house the kids found Jess. Admittedly wearing a different hat each time and always offering goodies but still, she was just their own Mum, they didn't even get to leave their house. They did console themselves with all their lollies but it was abundantly clear how disappointed they were.
“Next year you can trick or treat for real.” she promised in a rash and not thought through effort to make them smile.
“Daddy won't let us.”
“You leave Daddy to me. Next year, I promise.”

***

Pete wasn't budging on Halloween, again. Normally she wouldn't go against him, especially with the children. She wasn't a serious underminer or anything. Their marriage was built on mutual trust and respect wasn't it? Of course...unless of course one of the marriage partners was acting like an ass.
“Have a good night.” She kissed him.

Sometimes things just fall into place. A husband lays down the law but then goes to work for the night shift and the rest of the house is left with say, a few hours to themselves...It was perfect wasn't it? No one would have to be any the wiser. The kids could put on their costumes and run up and down the street for an hour or so. They'd have their lollies mostly eaten before bedtime hopefully.
“I'll call you.” Pete hadn't left.
“Why?” Jess tried to keep the look of panic from showing.
“No reason.” he said frowning. “I always call you.”
“Oh yeah of course.” That might put a slight spoke in the works but it was still doable. They'd just have to wait until after his call. No big deal.

***


The kids looked like scary little angels. Their happy faces made any feeling of residual guilt that was lying beneath the surface of Jesse's good mood just melt away.
“Are we really going this time?” The littlest girl asked.
“Yes we're really going.”
“Can I walk with my friends?”
“Yes you can walk with your friends. We all will.” Jess saw the oh man look run across her son's handsome face but he kept it to himself knowing he was lucky to be going at all.

The call came but other kids kept coming to THEIR house. There was no choice really other than to let the kids go on their own. They'd be safe. They'd lived in the same street for years and knew all the neighbours. “Hold your little sister's hand and watch your brother.” Jess said adding the final statement with a pointing finger towards the middle child, the one that attracted trouble like a magnet.
“We will.” And they were gone.

***

Jess was sitting in the quiet house eating remnants of chocolate by the time Pete got home from work. “Hey.” she said innocently as he kissed her.
“Hey. How was your night?”
“Uneventful. How was yours?”
“Busy.”


Jess closed her eyes that night with mixed feelings. Guilt was swirling though her in waves but she managed to offset that with the fact she'd kept the promise she'd made to her kids. No one got hurt did they? When she woke the next morning the guilt was gone, washed away with the normal school day preparations.


***

The best part about Pete doing the night shift was the leisurely morning they got to have together while the kids were at school.
They were in the living room relaxing with morning tea and a DVD.


Jess's jaw dropped as a car pulled up at the front of their house.
“What's wrong?” Pete asked, correctly judging his wife's horror. He stood, knocking over his plate in his effort to see what had captured and was holding his wife's attention.
“What would they be doing here?” Jess was stunned. She'd never known a school principal to actually come to someone's house before. Was that even allowed? What had their son done to be brought home by the principal?
“What on earth?” Mirroring her thoughts, Pete leapt to the door and threw it open. His eyes were on their oldest son's face but his question was to the principal. “What's happened?”
“No one's hurt. I just needed to talk to you about something that concerned me.”
“Oh?” Jess's niggles of guilt came back with a vengeance twisting and griping at her as she watched her son's guilty face. This had to have something to do with the trick or treating. She didn't know what to do, what to say. “Cup of tea Mr Whitby?” That's it, give him a reason to stay longer you stupid woman she chided herself.
“Thank you.” Mr Whitby accepted her offer, taking the seat Pete offered.
Jess tried to listen to the living room conversation while she rattled around the kitchen looking for a cup. Did she get him a cup and was there another matching saucer? A mug? She settled on the last decent cup and saucer and then she heard the words. “Trick or treating.” The last cup and saucer went crashing into the sink, smashing into pieces. Crap, a mug it was then. Or she could leave by the back door and start running...
“Jess?” Pete called from the other room.
“Coming. Just broke a cup.”

All eyes were on her as she entered the room with the mug. “Hope you don't mind not having a cup and saucer. Maybe I should freshen the tea.” Jess dived in to grab the pot.
“Leave it.” Pete's voice was doing that thing. That underlying I'm going to kill you when this man goes thing.
“But I...I'm just going to make a fresh pot.”
“The tea isn't important.”
“It's fine the way it is.” Mr Whitby took the mug.
“Mr Whitby had something brought to his attention this morning.”
“Oh?”
“Uh huh. Tell your mother why we're all here.” Pete said to the child that was trying to be invisible in the corner of the sofa.”
“Which bit?”
“The bit where our next door neighbour gave you twenty dollars.”
Jess's eyes widened. “Who gave you twenty dollars?”
“Mr Kumar.”
“Why?” Jess asked.
Her son looked shiftily at his Dad.
“Answer the question.” Pete barked.
“He didn't have any lollies.”
“I know this might seem like it has nothing to do with school but I was concerned. The fact that the children were trick or treating on their own especially is disturbing.”
“Is Jack in trouble? At school I mean?” Jess asked.
“No. I was just bringing this to your attention. Although, you have to know that the kids are not allowed to bring notes that big to the school canteen unless it's for a family multiple lunch order.”
“Yes I know.” Jess added resisting the urge to glare at her son.
“I think we can take it from here.” Pete stood and offered Mr Whitby a handshake. “I appreciate you taking the time. Will you be taking Jack back to school?”
“Yes. If that's ok with you.”
“Fine.”
Perfect, Jess thought. My ass is grass.

***

“Can I say something?” Jess asked from her spot in the corner.
“Not yet.”
“I just want to say one thing. OW!” A line of fire spread across both cheeks of her naked bottom as Pete smacked her hard with the large wooden spoon.
“Ok. ok.” Another smack had her standing still and silent.
“What were you thinking?”
“Do you want me to answer?”
“The question was rhetorical. We both know you weren't thinking. I can't believe you went against my wishes without even discussing it with me. I am hurt and upset with you and I feel like we've lost trust here. You totally undermined me. You taught our kids that if they don't like the rules they can thumb their nose at them...and me. Now you can say what you have to.”
“I'm sorry. I didn't know about the money. I want you to know that. I just thought it was a bit of fun. I thought you were being too hard.”
“Letting them go was bad enough but why didn't you at least go with with them?”
“I had to give out the lollies here. I thought I could trust them.”
“Not a nice feeling is it?”
“No. I am sorry.”

Pete took Jess's hand and bent her over the back of the sofa. He slid her panties down and helped her to step out of them. “Be still.” He smoothed his hand over her soft skin before standing back and to the side where he bent his belt in two.
Jess squeezed her eyes shut. She quite liked the belt after a warm up and rub. Not like this. She was almost on her toes and her bottom was raised high, stretched so he could access the crease beneath her cheeks. His aim was to make sitting difficult in the foreseeable future and he didn't disappoint. Each strike of the belt burned like the dickens and had her dancing on her tippy toes. By the last she was a sobbing mess. When the belt landed on the cushion in front of her she turned into his arms.
“I'm so sorry.” Jess sobbed over and over, clinging to her husband for grim death, soaking up the comfort his warm embrace offered.
“It's ok, it's over.”
“So if I go with them next year...”



The End



My question is… What is Jess and Pete’s next door neighbours name?
