A Memory Man Production
Your only son Ronald is twelve, a good but mischievous extrovert who earns himself spankings from time to time, you normally use your hand but when he turned eleven you invested in a short strap to use for more serious misdemeanors which you hung under his dressing gown on his door, a daily reminder to behave. So far it has only been used twice. Your sister-in-law's son Nicholas, a like spirit who lives some distance away is six months younger than Ron and you have agreed to host him through the summer break whilst his parents enjoy a month long cruise.
The boys have always got on well together and Ron was delighted when he heard the news. "It'll be great to have a brother for the holidays, he can share my room" was his response. When the day came Nick was duly deposited and left with the usual father's exhortation to behave himself and do as he is told ringing in his ears; as we were also told to treat him as our own if he misbehaves.
Two days have passed when you enter the family room to find them picking up the pieces of a broken vase. Ron's radio controlled helicopter was on the floor.
"What happened?" You demanded angrily.
Nick looked up at you white faced as Ron explained he'd just been testing that it worked before taking it out in the garden to show Nick"
"That's it! How many times have I warned you not to fly that damned thing in the house?" you growl furiously. "Now get yourself upstairs and get ready."
You follow him to his room, get him pantsed across your lap and the strap is in mid air poised for its third descent when the door bursts open and a tearful Nick rushes in. "STOP STOP" he cries. "It wasn't him it was me what done it"
You pull the whack and stand Ron up to face you. "Is this true?" you ask.
Wiping his sleeve across his eyes Ron explained he had brought it down to fly it with Nick in the garden and he'd put it on the floor telling Nick to wait while he went for a pee. But Nick had tried to see how it worked while he was out.
You look at him in puzzlement. "But why did you take the blame?"
"Nick noticed the strap on the door last night and when I told him I got it bare bum he freaked out. You see dad, he's never ever been spanked and he was so scared this morning that I..I..thought......................"
On turning back to Nick you see him nodding though his tears, he'd also slipped his pants off unnoticed ready to face the music.
What will you do?
