Most of the time, it's pretty cool being at his house, and there are usually a lot of kids around to do stuff with, but sometimes you just want some quiet for a while. One of the few bad things is that Jack - the Den Leader - thinks it's better to be outside, so the guys don't spend a lot of time playing video games. That's cool sometimes, but sometimes you just want to play.
Today, you invited your friend, Scooter, to go to your house and hang out for a while.
After a couple of hours, you decide you should get back to Jack's. You make sure that everything's the same way it was when you got there, because just a couple of weeks ago, Dad found out you'd sneaked home for a while, because you left the XBox on when you left, and he told you not to do it again.
As soon as you get back to Jack's, you run into him. He asks if you had a good ride, and where you've been. You didn't tell Scooter you weren't supposed to be at your apartment, and he tells Jack that's where you were, before you can think of anything to say.
Jack asks if you had a good time. You're feeling kind of sick, and Scooter can tell something's wrong, but he doesn't know what. Jack asks him to excuse the two of you for a bit, and you know that's bad news.
Jack escorts you to his office. He knows you're not supposed to go to your apartment during the day, and he asks if you have a good excuse. Of course, you had a good reason, but you know parents don't understand that kind of thing. After you're quiet for a couple of minutes, he asks if you want to deal with it now or wait and let your Dad decide.
Your Dad and Jack both spank hard - hard enough to make you cry. The thing is, Jack's spankings seem like they go on forever, and your butt always stays sore longer after he spanks you. But Jack's office is actually pretty quiet, and most of the guys are outside, so they might not know you got spanked. If you wait until Dad gets home, he'll spank you in your room, but your room is right next to your brothers' room, and you can hear everything when they get spankings, which means they can hear you, too. Of course, you know Jack's ready to spank you. Do you take a chance to talk Dad out of it, or risk him remembering it hasn't been long since he told you not to come home during the day if he wasn't there?
