“What did I say would happen if you were late to work again?”
I knew I was supposed to say, “You’d give me a spanking Mr Johnson, Sir!”, but I wasn’t going to give the bastard the satisfaction.
But, despite my reluctance to say it out loud there was no doubt I was going over Mr Johnson’s knee for a whacking.
Mr Johnson was the deputy office manager. Only the ‘deputy’ but he ruled the roost and his word was law. End of. He was a real bully.
I’d only worked for the company for a little over a month. I was twenty years old and I’d been out of work since leaving school two years previously. Jobs were hard to get in this town and the money I brought home made all the difference in my family. Mr Johnson might be a bastard, but I needed to keep this job, so I had to do what he said.
This time I told him what he wanted to hear. “You said I’d get a spanking Mr Johnson, Sir.” I tried to put a bit of a sneer into the word “sir”, but I don’t think he got the intonation.
I was standing in Mr Johnson’s office. It was portioned off from the main office and the wall between the two was mostly glass. Mr Johnson could see everything that was going on in the office. And, unless he drew the blinds on the window, all the office could see what Mr Johnson was doing.
Mr Johnson stood up and took off his jacket, hanging it up on a stand-alone coat stand.
“Take off your jacket and hang it up.”
I did as I was told.
While I was doing this Mr Johnson took his chair and placed it in front of his desk. I could see through the window that my fellow workers had started to take notice. They knew something very interesting was about to happen.
My fellow workers were all women and considerably older than me, most of them could have been my mum. I was the ‘office junior’ and as far as they were concerned that meant they could treat me as the lowest of the low.
I felt very small knowing they were all about to watch my spanking. Actually, I was very small. I was only skin and bones really. Not much more than five-feet-five tall and my tiny waist probably didn’t measure more than twenty-six inches. Most people where I lived looked like this. That’s what generations of poverty did to you.
“Stand there,” Mr Johnson, who was as overweight as I was under, snapped his fingers and pointed to a spot a couple of feet to his right.
I did as I was told. Standing there with my back to my work colleagues I realised they were going to get a prime view of my backside as I went across the boss’s knee. The mail boy arrived just in time to catch the show.
Mr Johnson started to scold me about my bad time keeping and my general attitude. I didn’t pay much attention; my gaze was transfixed on the man’s knees. He sat in his dark blue cheap business suit, his legs slightly apart creating a flabby platform where any moment now I’d be lying face down. I couldn’t be sure, but I thought there might be a slight bump in among all the flesh where his cock was poking up.
Without speaking, Mr Johnson reached out and grabbed the buckle of my belt. I instinctively took a step back but, clutching the waistband of my trousers, he pulled me closer to him and unbuckled the belt. I had no choice but to let him unzip my fly and tug my trousers down to my thighs.
I hopped from foot to foot in embarrassment and the movement and gravity encouraged my trousers to slip down to my shins.
“Bend over.” I didn’t. For a moment I did consider making a run for it. Nobody in their right mind would have blamed me if I did, but such an action was unthinkable. If I didn’t do as Mr Johnson demanded, he’d make sure I’d lose my job and I couldn’t do that to my family.
“Over!” I’d never been spanked before and believe it or not I wasn’t quite sure how to do it. I hesitated while I worked out whether I was supposed to throw myself over his body (rather like diving into a swimming pool) or whether I should put my hands on his knees and lower myself into position.
Mr Johnson must have thought I wasn’t going to take my spanking at all. He grabbed me by the left arm and manhandled me across his lap. Instinctively I put both hands in front of me to break my fall and badly jarred my left shoulder as a result.
I was across Mr Johnson’s knees, but not quite where he wanted me. He put one arm under my body and moved me forward a couple of inches. I was light enough and he strong enough to lift me to a spot to his satisfaction.
My face was low on the ground and I was eye to eye with the office carpet. My legs were a couple of inches off the ground and my bottom was neatly placed high in the middle of a mound of Mr Johnson’s flesh.
I couldn’t see this, but my fellow office workers had all left their desks and were stood watching the action. What they saw was a boy bent over an older man’s knees, with his bony bottom pointing up to the ceiling and prepared for a spanking.
I wasn’t to know this (yet) but although this was unexplored territory for me, it wasn’t for Mr Johnson or his staff. He had had many an office boy over his knee in his day and they had witnessed them all.
I felt my face burn red, just as I supposed my bottom cheeks would any time now.
Mr Johnson didn’t say a word as he put one arm around my body to hold me tightly in place. With his right hand he grasped the waist of my underpants and pulled them down over my tiny bottom to rest above my trousers.
Before I could protest the spanks rained down. This wasn’t going to be six slaps and you’re done. He spanked me so rapidly and so hard I could barely catch my breath. His spanks were not delivered from a great height, but were a series of short sharp blows one after another.
My cheeks were burning. I tried to wriggle free, but Mr Johnson held me firmly in place. I wasn’t going anywhere until he decided he had punished me enough.
Slap! Slap! Slap! It just went on and on. It hurt so much I wanted to cry out for him to stop, to say I promised not to be late for work again, if only he would stop spanking me. But, even with this pain I refused to give Mr Johnson the satisfaction.
And then he did stop. It was over. I caught my breath.
“Yes, Mr Johnson?”
“Dolly, I don’t think this is getting through to Hamilton, do you have a hairbrush?”
“Yes, Mr Johnson,” and with that she hurried off to her handbag and Mr Johnson resumed his hand spanks on my by now bright red bottom.
Dolly returned with the brush and handed it over. From my position staring at the carpet I couldn’t see Mrs Baker, as I was expected to call her in the office, but I knew damn well she could see me, bared arsed and humiliated.
Bang! Bang! Bang! The hairbrush came down on my arse. Mr Johnson didn’t let up one little bit. He whacked me just as hard with the wooden brush as he had with his hand. The pain was intense and I knew that I couldn’t take any more of this. Tears began to flow easily.
Mr Johnson eased up a bit, but he didn’t stop.
“Will you be late for work again?”
“No sir,” I gulped.
“Do you apologise for all the times you were late before.”
“Yes, Mr Johnson, sir”
Spank! Spank! Spank! “Say it out loud. Tell all your work colleagues that you apologise to them for being late.”
Whack! Whack! A dozen hard spanks in quick succession hit into my buttocks. There wasn’t enough flesh in my bum to absorb all this. My backside was literally black and blue with the beating.
“I’m sorry everyone,” I choked out the words, hating Mr Johnson with every fibre of my body. The bastard bully.
“Do we accept his apology folks?”
He carried on beating me while they decided what to say.
The spanks seemed to go on forever. What’s the matter: were they having a vote on it?
“Yes, he’s had enough”.
It was a man’s voice.
“Let him go.”
It was Mr Grice, the office manager. Mr Johnson’s boss.
Suddenly, he released his grip on my body and I jumped off his lap. Unsteady on my feet, I pulled up my trousers and pants. I know it’s what everyone says, but my bum really did feel like it was on fire. I was having trouble breathing and I knew I had tear streaks down my face.
“Go get cleaned up,” Mr Grice told me.
I didn’t need telling twice I pushed past the both of them and through the small crowd of women spectators and rushed out of the office to the Gents.
What I didn’t see was Mr Grice pull down the blinds in Mr Johnson’s office. Words were being said.
In the toilet I soaked lavatory paper in water and swabbed at my blistered bum. I hate you Mr Johnson. One day, I thought, I’ll be long gone from this company and if I ever meet you then, I’ll make sure that you never walk again.
