Daily Dialogue: Her Secret Place

I felt, in light of last weekend at the movies, I should write something that portrays an alternative relationship that isn’t really an abusive relationship in disguise. “Secretary” is a film that’s also an example of a good alternative relationship.

Virginia
Thanks for tonight.

Meredith
No problem. Look as us. We made it to the big fourth date.

Virginia
Heh, yeah.

Meredith
And I haven’t been inside your house yet.

Virginia
Yeah…

Meredith
I’d like to come in.

Virginia
I’d like you to, too. Oh geez, “to too?” I’m a ballerina now.

Meredith
As long as you’re a black swan instead of a nutcracker, I think I’ll be ok.

Virginia
You don’t have those parts to worry about.

Meredith
And you’re getting distracted. Can I come up?

Virginia
I want you to. I really want you to. Like, you have no idea.

Meredith
I think I do. Why don’t we go inside and I can show you?

Virginia
Yeah… Wait, no.

Meredith
No?

Virginia
No, just wait. Wait. K?

Meredith
Ok. Is it messy? Because I won’t mind. I work with disabled kids and–

Virginia
No, it’s not a mess. I’m the mess.

Meredith
I like your hair curly like that. It’s cute.

Virginia
Really, you think so? No. No, that’s not what I meant.

Meredith
Ok.

Virginia
Whenever I like someone as much as I like you, which is a lot, I invite them in my house, and they’re gone by the end of the night and I never see them again.

Meredith
What do–

Virginia
Please, I have to say this. You’re a great woman and I don’t wanna lose what we have going. But our paths will eventually lead us to a place that leaves me abandoned. Because no one has ever been able to handle what’s on the other side of the door. I try to warm them up with wine or champagne, and I think it works. It always seems like it works. Then I show them my secret place, and they leave me.

Meredith
I won’t leave.

Virginia
If my walls could talk, they’d laugh at all the times they heard that.

Meredith
But I’m still outside, so they haven’t heard me.

Virginia
And I want them to hear you. To hear us. But you’ll go in and I’ll show you my secret place. Then you’ll leave like all the others. And I can’t take that fucking pain anymore. So I should end it here, on these steps. I can at least remember all of our good moments without the stain of your rejection.

Meredith
So you’ll reject me instead? That’s not fair. And it’s not fair that you’re making my decisions for me. I’m an adult. And I care too much about you to leave me on these steps. So let me inside and let me make my own decisions.

Virginia
Are you… Are you sure?

Meredith
I won’t even need wine, or champagne.

Virginia
Ok… Well, this is inside.

Meredith
Looks geeky.

Virginia
Well, I’m a geek. Part and parcel of the deal when you sign up with me.

Meredith
No, it’s cool. I recognize some of these things.

Virginia
I love all this stuff and if you can’t be yourself at home, where can you?

Meredith
Right. I doubt this was the thing that made people leave though. I’m sure the guys would’ve stuck around for your Terminator corner, if nothing else.

Virginia
Heh, yeah. And no, this isn’t the bad thing.

Meredith
Nothing about you is the bad thing. What’s the stuff in your secret place?

Virginia
It’s better if I show you.

Meredith
Ok.

Virginia
No! I mean, stay. And close your eyes. I’ll bring it to you.

Meredith
Ok.

Virginia
And close your eyes. And hold open your hands.

Meredith
Ok.

Virginia
Here. Open your eyes.

Meredith
What’s this?

Virginia
A… A paddle a-and a blindfold…

Meredith
Who’s it for?

Virginia
You to u-use on m-me.

Meredith
You enjoy this? Pain gets you off?

Virginia
I knew this was a fucking stupid idea.

Meredith
Don’t take these away. I asked if pain gets you off.

Virginia
Y-yes.

Meredith
Are these all you have?

Virginia
No, there’s m-more. B-but I didn’t wanna sc-scare you away.

Meredith
I see. How much pain do you like?

Virginia
A-a lot…

Meredith
I didn’t hear you.

Virginia
A lot.

Meredith
Do you cut yourself?

Virginia
No, but I d-do everything b-but…

Meredith
Do you go to clubs for this?

Virginia
No, I pre-prefer a m-master at home.

Meredith
A master?

Virginia
Someone to c-control m-me.

Meredith
Lift your skirt.

Virginia
What? You mean you’ll…

Meredith
I’ll give it a try. We deserve that much, right? And it’ll give your walls something else to talk about.

Virginia
Really? Than–

Meredith
Shut up.

Virginia
Yes.

Meredith
Yes what?

Virginia
Yes, m-master.

Meredith
Now, lift your skirt and bend over the chair.

Virginia
Yes, master.

Meredith
A thong? Looks like you were hopeful.

Virginia
I-I…

Meredith
Shut up and stick your ass in the air.

Virginia
Y-yes, master… (tee-hee)

  1. As a member of the BDSM community, I love this. I kind of went through a similar experience with my boyfriend (now master!) And it was nerve wracking. Thanks for portraying a healthy relationship instead of abuse posing as BDSM.

    • I’m really glad that a proud, card-carrying member of the BDSM Club enjoyed it. The trickiest part was to find a way for Virginia to let Meredith in, then it hit me. Why not have Meredith kinda dominate her way in? I also wanted to show that, ultimately, Virginia got joy from being submissive, hence the “(tee-hee)” at the end. I am curious about what doms think, so I’d love it if your fella gave it a read.
