Story Of The Day: The Second Person

Our next 'Story of the Day' is The Second Person by Rollin which has been recommended by LSF member, opb:

"I understand that this story started as a challenge that it wasn't possible to write a good story entirely in the second person. Clearly it is. The beauty of this tale is that the tension increases gradually in line with the apprehension of the spankee, each detail, each layer building on the last until we, as readers feel ourselves to be the subject, the one due for the attentions of 'Miss'.

When the spanking starts it's almost, almost a relief, but we are not the ones actually the one bent over. The effect of the use of the second person throughout heightens the experience of making us sympathise with the spankee in a way which isn't quiet the same as the more traditional third person or with the attempted familiarity of first person narration.

The denouement is a classic googly which has us smiling at our own foolishness whilst playing down completely the wrong line.

A seeming breach of conduct earns a trip over the knee and an introduction to the paddle. After she finishes the hard spanking you'd think he's had enough, but things are not what they seem.
