From Chapter 9 ~MDMW~:
“It is hard when you know that she’s not getting any pleasure from it, but you both needed it. You needed to know that she’s willing to risk a spanking to love you and you needed to assert your dominance. Outside of this suite, I will submit to you, but inside of it, I will not. Deal?” Garrett offered and Tiernan smiled.
He held out his hand and said, “Deal.”
Morning came early to the Kincade household and Leanna woke to the feeling of kisses on her skin. She “mmm’d” and opened her eyes, startling when she realized the person was in front of her instead of behind like always. She gave Garrett a small smile and whispered, “Good morning,” to avoid waking Tiernan.
Garrett kissed her cheek and replied, “Good morning, Díleas. How are you feeling?”
She thought for a moment and said, “Not bad physically, but I hate it when am Famhair is angry with me. I just…I wanted to show him that you being back wouldn’t change how I feel about him, you know?”
“We both do, Sweetheart. It’s just hard for him to be your Dom when he just wants to wrap you up in a bubble and protect you from the world. I’ve been a Dom before, and I know how it works. He hasn’t and he’s had to learn as he goes. I really think that he’d be happier as just your husband, but we’ll have to ask him when he gets up,” Garrett responded just as quietly and brushed his knuckles lightly over her cheek.
“He is awake,” Tiernan informed them without opening his eyes or moving. After a moment, he kissed Leanna’s neck and snugged closer to her in order to wrap his arms around her better and rub her baby belly.
He rolled his wife onto her back and greeted their children, “Good morning, Dunkan. Good morning, Guinevere. You are loved, you are wanted, you are special, you are intelligent, you are capable, you are beautiful, you are wanted, and you are loved.”
He moved from her stomach to her face and kissed Leanna deeply for several long moments before pulling back and asking, “Are you ready for the bathroom now?”
“Eadh, am Famhair,” Leanna replied and asked, “are you still angry with me?”
Tiernan sighed and shook his head, “I’m more disappointed than angry. You haven’t been outright defiant since you became mine and I don’t like the way this is going. Are you defying me because he is here?”
“No! No, am Famhair. Tiernan, I promise you that I just wanted to prove to you that I didn’t care that he was there – I love you anyway. I wanted you to know for sure that his presence wouldn’t make me want or need you any less. I went about it all wrong, but my intentions were good. I will be obedient and I am sorry for upsetting you,” Leanna elucidated and fought the tears that threatened to overwhelm her.
Garrett rubbed Leanna’s back as Tiernan caressed her cheek and told her, “I would rather be your husband, lover, and friend, Leanna. Garrett was right about that. I love being your giant and your guardian and you lover and your husband and your friend, but I don’t like spanking you. The rest I don’t mind so much, but that is hard for me. I don’t want you to think less of me for not being a Dom though. I don’t want to lose you because you need a Dom, and I will be your Dom if that’s what it takes to keep you.”
“Garrett is here and he loves being my Dom, don’t you, am Rígh?” she asked, suddenly nervous about Garrett’s answer.
