Did you really think that I disobey because I don’t remember your expectations? Did you really think I let loose with my sassy mouth because I’m rude? No. What I want is for you to step up. I want you to care enough about me to teach me, to discipline me, to hold my feet to the fire and make me stay true to what I say I want. Tonight, when I sassed you at dinner, when I wore my hair exactly how you DON’T like me to, when I ordered the most expensive bottle of wine on the menu and then only drank half a glass, it wasn’t because I want to disrespect you, but rather, because I want you to respect me. I want you to respect me by giving me what you promised. I want you to ignore everything but my safe word. I want your power, your determination, your undeniable will. I want you.
