“Now then my pet,” I begin, “you may begin your service in the kitchen by fixing a pot of coffee. I do like mine with just a touch of vanilla creamer and a packet of sweetener.”
The look you give me is priceless and I wish so that I could have a picture of it to hold up to you in moments of defiance like these. In your expression there is surprise at the direction I am taking with this lesson and just a hint of annoyance and resentment. I can see in your eyes that you want to tell me to go get the coffee myself but I do not break eye contact or flinch in any way. You stare back at me silently.
Looking deeply into your eyes I command, “Once you have started the coffee, please fetch the paper off the front walk and deliver it to me much as a loyal and beloved dog might do. Then bring the coffee when it is ready,” I command in a firm but not harsh voice. “And my pet?” I call to you as you turn to leave the room with no small amount of annoyance, “Do not forget how you are to present yourself to me when entering a room or engaged in service.”
“Yes SIR…” you respond a little too haughtily for your own good as you turn your back on me and leave the room.
I can see this is going to be a challenging day, one that will sap my energy and mental resources trying to guide you through the obstacles to your submissiveness. I know in your heart you wish to serve and answer the call of your submissiveness, but with a lifetime of conditioning behind you it is no small task. This has to be handled with the utmost care or all will be lost in our relationship. We will either fight through this together to the other side, or your self-reliance will reassert itself, a point from which there might possibly be no turning back.
Today is a very important day for us and our future together.
