I have to say that getting an email titled, “Nose ring” from Master has been one of my most heart-stopping moments to date.
I received it at 9:30am to my work email address and before I even opened it, I had that gut-churning-omg feeling that only comes with announcements spelling out impending doom. Yeah, unfortunately the man is still enamoured with the idea of putting a big bull ring through my nose and he is planning on doing it once he gets a job offer.
And guess what? This morning he got a job offer.
*does a little happy dance*
On one hand, it’s been a really good day. After six months of repeated interviews and teasers and a whole lot of rejection, Master received a job offer. It’s been tough on him. He’s a typical guy in not wanting to talk about how the whole experience has made him feel like shit and how the worry has been eating away at him, but being his bitch, I know these things without him even saying them.
So getting a job offer has been great. The day before his birthday and a week before Japan, nothing could be a better present. We’ll both be able to relax ‘on vacation’ knowing we’ll still have a house to live in and food to eat when we come back (Well, maybe he’ll be relaxing. I’m sure during the whole Japan trip I’ll be a tight ball of angst on the verge of a meltdown.)
It’s not exactly his dream job because it’s far away and paying less than his previous job did, but we both agree at this stage of the game, any job is a good job.
On the other hand, it has also been a terrifying day because for months he has been saying,
‘Once I get a job, I’ll finish marking you how I want.’
And of course his idea of marking me is a tongue piercing, a septum piercing and another tattoo or two or three.
And now he has a job. So we all know what this means now, kiddies, don’t we??
This would actually be one of the times that if I had a safeword, I’d be screaming it from the mountains or I’d have it painted on the side of a blimp and have it float past his bedroom window.
As you can see, I’m not the most willing victim.
So the job offer has been a bit of a two-sided blade for me. For Master it’s just plus and plus and I can feel his grin from all the way over here.
