TMI Tuesday-April 30, 2013 The Amateur Detective

(Gardener's note:  I thought I'd take some time out from "How It Came To Be" to answer this week's TMI Tuesday questions.  I'm working on Chapter 25 right now, so be patient.  Erin and David will return!)

The Amateur Detective

1) Did you ever find someone else’s stash of sex toys, lubes, etc.?
Once.  I found a vibrator in a bedside table drawer of my wife's friend's house while we were staying there for a visit.  It was quite by accident.  However, when I was a teenager, I found my parents' stash of porn books!  They were very enlightening reading.
2) Did you ever search someone else’s computer to determine their porn habits? Were you ever the object of such a search?
I have never searched anyone's computer for porn, nor have I been the subject of a search as far as I know... but my kids might have tried.
3) Did you ever investigate to see if two people were getting it on?
I didn't have to investigate.  Our youngest son  had been living at home when he met this girl who moved in with him.  At times, they were very noisy...

4) Did you ever look for naughty pictures on someone else’s phone?
For the vast majority of my life, having "naughty pictures" on a phone meant there were Polaroids taped to the handset or base!  
5) Were you ever involved with an investigation (formal or informal) into whether some one was cheating on his/her lover?
Again, no.

Bonus: Do you have a secret online identity so that you can find a secret lover?
No, I have a secret online identity so I can publish the erotica I write.

Now go see what others have written!  TMI Tuesday Blog

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twenty Four

Erin hugged David a few minutes, then he gently raised her chin and said, “We've got much to do today, but there's a few more things we need to get here.”

“What more could I ask for?” Erin said in amazement.

“Oh, this is more for me,” David said. “Come over here,” he said to Erin as he guided her to a display of gags, “though you might enjoy them, too... I hope.”

“Is a gag really necessary?” Erin asked hesitantly.

“In some cases, yes,” David explained. “It's not necessarily that I want to silence you, it's that I may want to put you into a more submissive mindset.”

Erin came up to the display of gags. There were ball gags in red, black, blue, green and white. Some had holes all over them like a wiffel ball. Others looked like a horse's bit and were made of leather, rubber or even metal. There were gags that were just rings and ones that had metal rods welded to them that looked like spider legs. Others covered the whole mouth and had either a ball on the inside or a rubber penis. One gag even had what looked like a drain plug in its center.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twenty Three

“Colleen, what happened to last night?” David asked as he got up from the floor and faced Erin's mother. He was annoyed but he tried to stay in control.

“What do you expect me to do when I see my daughter in pain?” she retorted.

“Yes, she's feeling a bit of pain, but it was consensual,” David explained, an edge of exasperation creeping into his voice.

Colleen was seething. “What's that bullshit mean?” she demanded.

“I did spank her, Colleen. Hard,” he said, “but she agreed, no she asked me to do it. That's what I mean by consensual.”

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twenty Two

Erin awoke early as always. When she opened her eyes, she saw David sleeping peacefully next to her, so she lay there for a few minutes and just watched him as he slept. She remembered the events of the previous day. Her ass was a bit sore and her pussy was somewhat tender, but not as tender as where David's beard had rubbed her thighs. Erin didn't care, however. She had never been so happy to see a person laying beside her as she was when she saw him.

Erin finally slipped out from under the covers so she could check on the twins. She remembered that she was naked except for her collar, which made her smile. When was the last time she slept naked with her lover? Her honeymoon? It didn't matter, she thought as she walked over to the bedroom door. Whenever it was, it was never like this.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twenty One

David ran down the hall from the bedroom to the kitchen, slowing down only to grab one of the new garage door opener remotes off the kitchen counter. He punched the “OPEN” button as he flung open the kitchen door and ran into the garage. He ran to his car, parked outside on the driveway. Pulling his keys out of his pants pocket, he unlocked the driver's door and jumped in. He started the engine, put the car in “DRIVE” and pulled into the garage, pressing the “CLOSE” button on the remote as he cleared the garage door. He then clipped the remote on his visor.

Erin followed David as quickly as she could through the house. She was just about to run through the kitchen door to the garage when she realized that it was still early, the garage lights were on and she was completely naked. Erin jumped back and cautiously stuck her head around the door jamb in time to see David pull the car into the garage and close the door.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twenty

David carried Erin out to the car and set her down in the passenger's seat. “Master, I could have walked here,” she said.

“And yet, you let me carry you all the way,” David replied with a smile.

“It felt so, so... romantic,” Erin cooed.

“Good!” David said. “I never want us to lose the romance. Life isn't just about fucking and beating and binding you up. It's about sharing tender, intimate moments with you as well.”

“But, Master, you don't have to do that for me,” Erin insisted. “You know you can use me any way you want. Fuck me, beat me, humiliate me... I'm your property.”

“But what if I want to have a romantic evening with you?”

How It Came To Be - Chapter Nineteen

David walked into the dining room and stopped dead in his tracks. The table was almost groaning under the weight of the food piled on it. Erin and Barb had about an hour to prepare the meal and David was amazed with what they had come up with on such short notice.

It wasn't gourmet fare, but it all looked fantastic. For an entree, David saw a pile of hamburgers with all the fixings: leaf lettuce, tomato slices and onions, pickles and even cheese and bacon. Buns were overflowing a basket nearby. Ketchup, mayonnaise, pickle relish and mustard were available. There were three different kinds of chicken wings, from mild to wild. A pot of chili sat on the counter in the kitchen.

The girls had prepared home-made coleslaw and macaroni salad and Erin had borrowed a tub of potato salad from Grace, her neighbor across the street. Baked beans, potato chips and fresh veggies for dipping into ranch dip completed the menu. It was like a backyard barbeque, but indoors.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Eighteen

David, George and Enrico set themselves to the task of dismantling the old bed. George stripped the linen off the mattress and put it in one corner of the room. The three men then lifted up the mattress and leaned it against the far wall. They extracted the box springs from the frame and set it with the mattress. Then they turned to the frame. It was put together with bolts.

“I'll go and get my toolbox from the van,” Enrico said. As he left, George thought of something and was about to follow him, but David stopped him. “What's up, David?” George asked.

“I'm a bit worried, to tell the truth,” David confessed.

“Worried? Why are you worried?” George asked.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Seventeen

David was on the phone with the manager of the mattress store he and Erin had researched online. “I'm sorry, Mr. Saunders, but I cannot see any way to accommodate your request,” the manager told him.

“Do you have the mattress in stock, as it indicates on your website?” David inquired.

“Yes, Mr. Saunders, we do.”

“Is it on site or at a remote warehouse?

“I can assure you we have it right here in our store's stockroom. You are welcome to come down here and pick it up,” the manager offered.

“I can't. I have so many things to take care of here,” David insisted. “You've said you cannot deliver the mattress set today. May I ask the reason?”

How It Came To Be - Chapter Sixteen

David smiled at Colleen. “I wanted to do this sooner, but there's only so many hours in a day and even a dom has to sleep.”

“Is that true?” she joked. David realized that Colleen had not taken the sudden change well. Even though she sounded like she was teasing, David could see her smile was forced.

“How are the boys, Mom?” Erin asked.

“It's just about time for them to get up,” Colleen replied.

“I'll go in and take care of them,” Erin said. “You want to come help, Master?”

“I would like to talk with your Mom for a little while, then I'll be in,” David told her.

“OK, Master!” Erin turned and went into the nursery.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Fifteen

With “Hurricane Melissa” safely blown out to sea, the four survivors of the tropical tempest began the daunting task of rebuilding from the rubble. At least, that's what it felt like any time Melissa made an appearance at the Emporium. When the front door closed behind her, Barb looked at George, then they both gave a sigh of relief.

Erin turned to David and said, “I'd love to stay here all day, but I need to get back to the twins and Mom needs to get home. How much longer will we be here?”

“How many outfits did you pick out?” David asked.

“Well, I don't know which one I want more,” Erin said. “You really liked the latex mini-dress, and I saw a corset I'd like to try, but I wore that leather outfit for the flogging so I guess I'll just take that.” She tried to look happy but David could tell she was disappointed.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Fourteen

The four were basking in that afterglow that comes from an intense sexual experience. David noticed that Barb was studying him a little closer than usual. He wondered what she was up to.

Barb leaned over to whisper in George's ear. “Why don't you take Erin to get changed so you can pack up her outfit to take home?” she suggested. “Maybe let her look at some other outfits she might want. She looks so hot in leather.”

“Why don't you do that, instead, Barb?” George countered. “I mean, you're women, after all. She might be uncomfortable with me hanging around her while she's changing.”

“I thought you two subbies would like a chance to bond,” Barb replied dryly. “Besides, I've got something I need to do.” As she said that, Barb glanced over at David. George nodded his head slightly.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Thirteen

"Take my hand, Erin,” David ordered. Erin brought her right hand from behind her back and took hold of David's outstretched hand. “Come with me, now.” They walked across the room, passing rack after rack of leather items. The aroma of the leather was heady as Erin breathed deeply of it.

David brought her into the third room and Erin could clearly see the device that had caught her eye earlier. It was a wooden “X”, finished in a deep walnut with bright silver bolts holding it together. There were holes evenly spaced along the center of each arm at a regular interval. A sturdy silver eye bolt was inserted in one of the holes on each arm.

“Stay here for a moment,” David ordered. He wasn't stern or loud, but the tone of his voice left Erin no choice but to obey. She stood there while David stepped away for a minute. He then walked in front of her and knelt down on one knee. Erin was confused... why was he kneeling before her? She realized the answer as she felt a leather strap tighten on her left ankle. David then snapped a lock on the cuff and Erin got a funny feeling she couldn't identify immediately.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Twelve

Back on the road, Erin was excited. “So you're going to start my training?”

“It looks like I'm going to have to,” David said. “You really don't seem to know too much about that thing we do.”

“What thing?” Erin asked.

“BDSM,” David replied. “Sometimes you'll see it referred to as “TTWD.” That's the acronym for “that thing we do.” You might also see it referred to as “WIITWD”-that means “what it is that we do.” Since the term BDSM sounds so specific but covers so many fetishes, kinks and whatever, people try to come up with different ways to express themselves.”

“I see, Sir,” Erin said.

“Now you may hear people talk about or refer to themselves as a top, bottom, dom, sub, master, slave, owner, property or pet,” David continued. “Are you familiar with any of those terms?”

How It Came To Be - Chapter Eleven

As they pulled out of the parking lot at the Akiyama & Akiyama law office, Erin looked over at David and asked, “What are we doing next?”

Next up, we're going to do some shopping,” he replied.

“Ooh! Shopping!” Erin exclaimed, smiling. “You really know how to treat a girl right! I could use some new outfits, I definitely need new shoes, and...”

“Slow down there, little one,” David replied, chuckling. “I'm in the market for something specific, so don't get your hopes up too high.”

“What do you mean?” Erin asked as David pulled into a parking lot. She scanned the stores in the shopping center, looking for a clothing or shoe store. Seeing none, she sat back in her seat with a pouty face. “It looks like there's nothing but boring places here!” she protested.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Ten

Erin woke up about 6:00 AM and realized that she hadn't gotten up at two. She glanced over at the door to her bedroom, but she had opened it after her “lesson” last night. She got up and went into the nursery to check on her boys. Francis was still asleep but Thomas was awake and laying quietly in his crib, studying the mobile dangling above him.

At about 8:30 AM, Erin's cell phone rang. She recognized her mother's number and answered the phone. “Hi, Mom! How are you today?” she asked.

“I'm fine,” Colleen replied, “and you sound better than you have in weeks... months even. What happened?”

“I got to sleep a whole seven hours, Mom, that's what!” Erin boasted.

“You mean both of the boys slept through the night?”

“Yes, Mom, they did!” Erin was almost giddy.

How It Came To Be - Chapter 9.5

(Telephone rings.)

“Hello, welcome to the Master David Learn By Phone Academy for Future Slaves. This is your Teacher speaking. Are you calling for your initial lesson?”

“Um, well... yes I am.” (Giggles.)

“I see. And whom do I have the pleasure of speaking with tonight?”

“Um... Erin?”

“I see. You will be addressed as “Future Slave Erin.””

How It Came To Be - Chapter Nine

Erin and David sat on the sofa while Colleen sat on the loveseat to their left. Erin sat closer to her mother and held David's hand for support.. There was silence for almost a minute.

Erin began, “Mom, I heard from Ronald this morning.” Both Colleen and David noticed that Erin was calling him by his given name now, not his nickname.

“I take it the conversation was not pleasant,” she observed.

“No, Mom, and that's why I asked David to be here with me when I told you,” Erin explained.

“Why him?” Colleen asked.

“He will be able to explain some... things better,” Erin said, blushing slightly.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Eight

Erin watched with concern as Val drove away. As she walked back to the house, she wondered how long would it take for David to get her note, and how much longer until he responded to it? Or would he? “No,” Erin thought, “I've got to stay positive. He will call. I know it.”

Back inside the house, Erin checked on the twins. Both needed changing. She took them, one at a time, into the nursery, got each of the boys in a dry diaper and a change of clothes and laid them down for an afternoon nap.

With her babies safely ensconced in their cribs, Erin headed for the kitchen to forage for lunch. A survey of the leftovers collected in the refrigerator left her with the lasagna as the only logical choice. It had been in the fridge the longest and she hated to throw anything out if she could avoid it.

How It Came To Be - Chapter Seven

Running around the house, Erin searched for just the right piece of note paper to write her message to David. Francis and Thomas giggled in delight as they watched her. They didn't understand her emotional state, they just knew that Mommy wasn't crying any more.

Having found the paper, pen and envelope, Erin sat down and... She wasn't quite sure what to say. She didn't want to miss Val and her only chance to contact David, so she decided to keep it short and to the point. Having written the note, she stuck the paper in the envelope and, in her haste to finish, just tucked the flap of the envelope inside rather than sealing it.

Erin made sure that the boys were safe in the play yard, then sat down in the living room and watched for Val to come out of the house across the street. When she saw the technician return to her van, Erin jumped up and ran out the front door. Flying across the street, she came up to Val just as she was picking up the traffic cone before leaving.
