Dream of me

Very very nice



Cast a Spell to give you a romantic dream

When you know, sometimes you just want your one love and they are far away. You want to dream about them, you can use it to send the other person romantic dreams about you.

Directions: Find something that symbolizes the person you want to dream of, such as a photo, something they gave you, something they said to you written on paper, etc.

Just before going to sleep, recall your most favorite memories with them, then hold the object on your heart and chant:

With these treasured memories,
sweet dreams of you shall come to me.
The way you laugh, the way you smile,
my heart, it skips, it leaps a mile.

Your gentle breath, your tender touch,
I long for you, so very much.
Your lips so soft, your eyes so bright,
I need you on this lonely night.

Chloe Learns to Thank Her Mistress – a fragment

Alice Dark - BentAlice

“It’s time for you to pay for your disobedience.”

Chloe stood naked and trembling in front her Mistress. The young woman’s head was down, and she studied her Mistress’s booted feet. Chloe’s hands were clasped in front of her to prevent any fidgeting. Mistress Arlene hated it when Chloe fidgeted. Still the young woman wiggled her toes and swayed slightly from side to side. Chloe had spent more than an hour in the punishment corner – naked, with her hands above her head, while Mistress Arlene watched from the comfort of her own chair.

“This is what’s going to happen,” Mistress Arlene said. Her voice was low and rich, a deep contralto that sent a shivering thrill through Chloe’s naked form. “You will thank me after every stroke. If you do not, we will begin again.” Mistress Arlene walked slowly around the trembling girl, speaking in rhythm to her steps…
