The problem actually started yesterday. He'd promised to have some chores done before you arrived home with his cousins, and then he told you he'd done them. When you and the cousins arrived, they weren't done.
Devon knows the penalty for that, but you know how intensely shy he is. Instead of making a big deal about it, you get everyone settled in, then you suggest your nephews go across to the park for a while, so that Devon and you can finish up a couple of things that have to be done before dinner.
They go. Devon is not looking forward to it, but he's glad there'll be no witnesses about, so he gives you almost no trouble in getting him ready to warm his butt.
He recovers and cleans up, and you help him finish the chores. Then the two of you go over to the park and join the other kids in some frisbee before dinnertime.
The next day, you hear a commotion coming from Devon's area of the house. You get their just in time to see Devon shoving Mike, who's younger than Dev, but the oldest of the other boys, to the ground. Along with your nephews, there are a couple of neighborhood boys with whom Devon has been becoming friends.
Mike is obviously shocked, but also looks to want to continue things. You break it up and separate them. While you've never spanked Devon in front of anyone before, you're tempted to make an exception. Still, you take a deep breath and find out what's going on.
It turns out that, after you'd sent the boys to the park, Mike had stuck around the house, and had sneaked back in and heard the entire spanking session. Devon had shoved him down because he was sharing full details with all the other boys.
Is Devon in more trouble? Is he the only one?
