Lee sat down in front of me and pulled me in. I sobbed in his embrace. “I needed to show you that I can receive a lot of pain, but I can also inflict a lot a pain. You need a man, not a mouse. I'm the man who'll take care of you in every way possible.” He was right, but I had been shocked by his ability to punish me like he had. “Tonight, I was actually gentle. If you forget your place in our relationship, I can show you the other side of me, the not so gentle side. And my woman doesn't have the mouth of a sailor whether we're playing or not.” I had not known that he was that insisting on a proper language. I would definitely remember it in the future.
