Guests arriving at Jessica’s party were greeted by the sight of a table full of delicious-looking food, everything from homemade sushi and crab rolls to ceviche and puff pastry. Across from that table was another table containing Marie and Jane, who were bent over naked, bound, and ball-gagged.
Jessica had written the word “Disobedient” on Marie’s back in lipstick, and on Jane’s, the word “Sluts.” On the table next to them were a selection of instruments of punishment — a flogger, the tawse, a paddle, and two riding crops, along with a handwritten sign saying “Help yourself.”
Kat, Kelly, Olivia, Ana, and Lexi arrived as a group. They had all been hanging out together that afternoon, and when Kat suggested that they wear their cheerleader uniforms to the party, everyone enthusiastically agreed. Jessica was absolutely delighted to see the five 18-year-old cheerleaders walk into her living room; not a bad way to get a party started.
Jessica saw the girls looking over at Jane and Marie, and said, “I’d appreciate it if each of you would give them at least one good smack. The bitches will never learn to behave if they aren’t punished.”
The cheerleaders happily obliged, first Lexi, then Ana and Olivia. Kat and Kelly were each wielding a riding crop when their mothers walked in. Betty and Samantha shared a brief look of concern — were they possibly not making the best parenting decisions? Then they shrugged and laughed; it was a little late to be worried about that now. Kat handed her crop to Samantha, and Kelly passed hers to Betty.
It suddenly went quiet in the room when Celeste walked in carrying a tray of drinks. She was wearing a tight red dress and looked absolutely ravishing. For the cheerleaders and the two mothers, this was their first exposure to Celeste, and Jessica could see that they were all stunned by what they beheld. Jessica felt her juices begin to flow as she thought about the possibilities the night held.
Claire and Tara were the next to arrive. Olivia had texted them to let them know that this was a party they didn’t dare miss, and seeing the two bound girls and the gaggle of cheerleaders, they knew immediately that she hadn’t steered them wrong. Tara grabbed the paddle and Claire the tawse, and they each laid a couple of token blows on Jane and Marie, whose rumps were glowing a pale red by now.
Tara whispered a few words to Claire, who nodded. Both were amazed by all the beautiful women at the party; it was like being at Mimi’s, except that the vibe was different — less fraught, more joyful. Even the two bound women looked happy. You could see in their eyes that they knew they were exactly where they belonged.
Jaws dropped all around when Serena walked in, looking stately and gorgeous in a white gown that seemed like it had been painted on. With her was Annalise, who had a big, goofy smile on her face. She could hardly believe that she was arriving at this party with this amazing creature. Jessica greeted them with hugs and kisses, again encouraging them to help with Jane and Marie’s punishment.
Annalise picked up the flogger and Serena a riding crop. Annalise flogged Marie softly, almost caressingly. Serena landed three good, hard blows that made Jane gasp, then sat down the crop and went to find something to drink. Annalise dropped the flogger and followed her.
They had just walked away when Jackie and Sara appeared — Jackie in jeans and a T-shirt, Sara in a strapless black cocktail dress that made her look like a movie star. Both of them were more than willing to participate in the punishment, especially Sara, who laid into Marie so hard and for so long that Jessica almost moved to stop her. When Sara was done, Jessica decided that Jane and Marie had had enough — and besides, Celeste was the only one serving drinks, and she was falling behind.
When they were released, Marie and Jane rubbed their sore spots gratefully, and Jessica told them to go get dressed. She had already picked out outfits for them from among their recently acquired lingerie. Soon music was playing, the alcohol was flowing, and the party had started in earnest.
Janice and Ella arrived fashionably late, each of them bearing two bottles of Champagne. One of Janice’s bottles was almost empty, and as a result the two of them were already in full-on party mode. They jumped right into the center of things, dancing with Ana and Olivia as a heavy bassline reverberated through the room.
The last arrivals were Rebecca, Rose, and Tanya. Jessica watched them enter from across the room, curious how Tanya would react to what she saw. She saw Tanya looking around, noting that there were only women there, seeing the instruments of punishment on the table, checking out the cheerleaders and the scantily-clad Jane and Marie.
Tanya didn’t know quite what to make of all this, and for a moment she had the impulse to bolt. She sensed that more was afoot here than your basic New Year’s party, and wondered what she had gotten herself into. But Rebecca and Rose had already disappeared into the crowd, so Tanya took a deep breath and tried to relax into the moment.
Jessica crossed the room and gave Tanya a welcoming hug. “I’m so glad you came,” she said. “It’s going to be a really fun night.”
