Happy spanksgiving, p.1
Happy Spanksgiving, page 1
When Max, Sean, and Cali throw a Suncoast Society party, it’s usually a doozy. Unfortunately old, painful memories are uninvited guests when they get unexpected news about someone from their past. While others are celebrating, the triad is examining their emotions.
Not even Baxter high on catnip, a repentant T-Rex, or a pregnant and hormonally psychotic bestie’s snark can completely lift their mood over what’s happened.
But when a karmic opportunity presents itself to do the right thing, can their hearts and peace of mind handle being kind, or will they take their friends’ sound advice to walk away?

Cali studied the image on her computer screen. She’d been playing with Photoshop all morning, trying to come up with a creative website banner for their “Spanksgiving Black and Blue Friday” sale without verging into racially or culturally insensitive bullshit tropes.
Currently, she had a series of duplicated red and orange paddles arranged into a fan shape that called to mind the shape of a turkey’s ass, and three nylon whips coiled in a messy pile in front of them, one red and black, one brown and black, and one orange and red.
In her office, she had several of their inventory items spread across the floor where she’d left them after using her photo setup to take quality shots of them.
Baxter, her black and white tuxedo cat, twined himself around her legs. She scooped him up into her lap and stroked his head. “Maybe I should dress Sean as a turkey and truss him up.”
Baxter purred and head-butted her hand, insistent, wanting more attention.
She’d also thought about baking a turkey early and then tying it in a shibari style. Except she didn’t want to waste rope like that, because like hell she’d want to keep rope, washed or not, that had been tied around a turkey.
I could use butcher’s twine. Or paracord.
She still had over three weeks, so it wasn’t like she had to decide today.
Sean was always willing and eager to take one for the team when it came to the website header images. It was something fun for the three of them to do together, although sometimes it was more Sean and Max than her.
That’s when it usually went off the rails.
Like the Easter header that she’d forbidden her men to so much as speak about, one they’d shot and then posted without her permission.
Which was why she now had unilateral final control over website headers and graphics.
She hoisted Baxter into her arms, stood, and headed out to the kitchen to make herself a mug of hot tea. Today, she needed to make a UPS run to ship orders, which was becoming an increasingly frequent occurrence, thankfully. It wasn’t like she could retire on what the Two Crafty Bastards Toys website paid her, but it was paying its own way, paying her, and the business savings account was slowly growing.
Even after she’d taken a trip out to Arizona over the summer, to a week-long whip-making workshop. She wouldn’t consider herself an expert whipmaker yet, but her nylon whips were pretty dang good, according to Seth, Leah, Ross, Tony, and Landry, her guinea pigs.
She still struggled to create quality leather whips, her plaits not tight or neat enough for her to have anyone test throw for her.
Eventually, she’d get better with practice. For now, she was happy to master nylon. It meant she could expand their product offerings both online and over at Venture.
After she drank her tea, she finished packaging her orders and loaded everything into the trunk of her car. She stopped at Essie’s house, just down the street from theirs, for a quick visit.
Cali let herself in after announcing her presence. “It’s me. Do you need anything while I’m—wow, are you okay?”
Eddie, their toddler son, was sitting on the living room floor and playing with a couple of toy cars.
Essie, who lay sprawled across the couch, looked like hell warmed over.
Worse, she looked like she’d been crying.
“Honey, are you okay?”
She nodded, shook her head, nodded, shook her head—then burst into tears.
Cali hurried over to her and sat next to her, pulling her into her arms. “What’s wrong, honey?”
Essie was apparently too overcome to talk. Fortunately, Eddie was too focused on his cars—and on the cartoon playing on the TV—to pay attention to his mom’s quiet meltdown.
Cali got Essie up off the couch and down the hall, into the master bedroom. “What’s wrong, sweetie?”
Essie waved her hand at the bathroom doorway.
Confused, Cali walked in there…
And immediately spotted the pregnancy test kit sitting on the counter.
Cali returned to the doorway. “Is this a…bad thing?”
Essie shook her head, still crying.
“Ooookay.” She walked over to Essie and sat next to her on the bed. “Want to tell me why you’re so upset?”
“I don’t want to move!” she wailed.
Cali suspected she was missing something. She held her friend, gently rocking her. “Can you please fill in the blanks for me?”
Sniffling and snotting, Essie finally choked out the discussion she and her three men had just the week before, debating whether or not to build a larger house. Essie was fine with where they were living, but the men had brought up the valid point that if they had more kids, they’d really need a bigger house.
“I don’t want to move,” she said. “I like living here, and I like being just down the block from you guys.”
“Then don’t move yet. Tell them you don’t want to.”
“But they made the point we could have a bigger master bedroom and bathroom. And a pool.”
“Then that’s good, right?”
“I didn’t even know you guys were trying to get pregnant again.”
“We weren’t!” she sobbed. “I realized this morning my period was over two weeks late, and I had a kit left over from last time and took it.”
“Wait…you mean I know about this before your guys know about it?”
Essie stared at her, her eyes going wide before she sobbed again. “Oh, my god, I’m a horrible wife, too!”
Cali fought the urge to laugh as she held her crying friend. During Essie’s pregnancy with Eddie, the first three months had been a massive hormone-induced emotional roller coaster that saw Essie’s men seeking refuge at Cali’s house more than once. She could be laughing and sobbing, tenderly homicidal, all over literally nothing. Even she would admit it.
“Well, congratulations, for starters. But please don’t get upset. Remember the last time?”
“I’m going to neuter all three of them.” Essie sniffled. “I don’t even know which one is Eddie’s father yet. We were going to get DNA testing done and figure it out so we could plan the next time.”
“Deep breaths, honey. Did you want me to take Eddie for you for a couple of hours?”
She sniffled. “Can you take me?”
Cali laughed. “I thought your mom had to work today?”
“So she can’t watch Eddie while we run away from home today.”
More sniffling from Essie. “Nooooo!” She devolved into tears.
“Do you want me to watch Eddie while you call the guys?”
Essie hiccupped. “No, I’ll be okay.”
“Do you want me to call your guys and ask them to come home?”
“They’re out of town. They’re at a job in Orlando for three days. Filmed.”
“Ah.” Cali tried again. “Would you like me to take Eddie overnight so you can go be with the guys?”
Essie blew her nose. “They won’t let me on-site once they know I’m pregnant.”
“You can go stay at the hotel with them.” Cali had another idea. “How about I run ship these packages, then I drive you to Orlando and leave you there so you can be with them. I’ll bring Eddie home with me.”
“I can’t ask you to do that.”
“Honey, you’re approaching crazy-time. We went through this with you with Eddie. This isn’t good for you. You need your guys.”
“I know!” More tears.
Cali would laugh if she didn’t think it would set Essie off even worse. Even Essie had admitted last time around that she felt like she had no control over her emotions. Her obstetrician had told her it was totally normal for that to happen sometimes.
“I’ll be back in an hour,” Cali told her. “Be ready to go, and pack me stuff for Eddie for two nights, so you don’t have to rush back. Okay?”
Cali kissed her on the cheek. “Let’s get you back out there before Eddie finger-paints poop on the wall again.”
