My boyfriend leered at me. “Sit,” he said.
Ooooh! I obeyed. I sat. And tingled with anticipation. My new man has a fetish! Does he have a leash and collar?
“Last night was our anniversary,” he barked.
I blink. “Anniv –”
“No talking! One month anniversary! And you canceled our date.”
Uh-oh. He knows. “Baby, lemme explain how –”
Sir, yes, sir! I’ve never played the submissive.
He paced. An interrogating cop. “I was in your bedroom. Saw the mask. The whip. The handcuffs.”
I’m so busted. He knows my ex came over.
“I understand you couldn’t tell me. But don’t worry. Your secret’s safe.”
He grinned. “So, you’re a superhero?”
Gasp! “You’ll never meet Mom, but I love you.”
