"Good morning my little one, I do hope you feel rested and refreshed after a good night’s sleep. We certainly had quite a night together at the Club! That is a night I am not likely to forget for a long, long time."
"Me either Sir," you reply, the sleep still present in your voice. "It was an amazing experience, and while I am not so sure about all this exposing myself in front of other people, you certainly managed to distract me from my reluctance. Thank you Sir. It was a terrific night."
"You are so very welcome little one," the sincerity evident in my voice. "And thank you. You were absolutely marvelous. We make a terrific pair."
"But, all that said," I continue in a more commanding tone, "today is another day and we have much work ahead of us to continue your training."
"Yes Sir," you respond, your tone brightening at the prospect.
Launching right into the day’s instruction I begin to lecture, “Today, my love, is a day where we truly begin to put your resolve of wanting to be a submissive to the test. You see, to this point we have only been covering instruction on the basic behavior and practical expectations I have for you as my submissive. And nearly all of that has centered on erotic and sexual play and/or denial. Of course there has been genuine intimacy too. But, so far there has been very little actual service involved. Do you understand?”
"I am not sure I do Sir," you reply.
"What I am saying is that what he have been covering this past week or so has been sexual behavior and expectations. We have been playing with the erotic side of a D/s relationship, but that is not all there is," I explain.
"We have certainly determined that you are a sexually submissive woman and that you thrive on my dominance in that arena. But that only tells us that you like a little kinkiness and to be dominated sexually. It does not tell us the true depths of your submissiveness and desire to serve me."
"Being in a D/s relationship means far more than sex little one. Your commitment was to serve me without question in all matters of our relationship and in turn I would care for you and all your needs. That means being submissive and of service even when you do not feel like it or do not want to do what is being asked of you," I lecture. "Serving a Master is not always fun and games. In fact it can be very hard work. But that service can be extremely gratifying to a woman who yearns to be submissive at her very core."
"But make no mistake, being a Dom and a Master to a submissive is not so simple as just sitting around giving orders. It takes constant mental effort to remain one step ahead of a sub, anticipating her reactions and needs before they even occur; at all times providing for her instruction, wants and needs. This is true even when I do not feel like it or want to. It is at times an exhausting effort and is my contribution to our relationship."
"Today we are going to focus on service in ways that you might not find so terribly enjoyable. In doing so, we are both going to learn the depths of your submissiveness and the strength of your commitment to this life we have chosen. If you break through to the other side of this, you will have come to know yourself in a whole new light and will have found a new peace with who and what you are. You will know a freedom and happiness you have not experienced before. I promise you this my little one."
"Now let’s get started…the day’s a’ wasting."
