On the way to my class yesterday afternoon we stopped by that little metaphysical shop that my Knight mentioned. He wanted to check to see if they had his ring before we ordered on-line. Sure enough.. they had it!
Since we had all the kids in the car with us I had my Knight run in and take a look at the rings they had in stock. I wasn't expecting much, so when he came out and said he left 7 rings on the counter inside that all fit I was surprised.
I went in and there it was *exactly* the ring I was looking for. I bought it and had the sales lady box it for me so that my Knight would not see which ring I picked. When I got to the car I made sure he saw me slip the ring box in my purse. My Knight raises his eyebrows, obviously curious. But I just grinned at him and wouldn't tell him which ring I picked.
Then he dropped me off to teach my class and took the kids home for dinner. He didn't mention the ring again until we were in bed last night. "You never showed me which ring you picked."
"Nope. I didn't. You don't get to see it until I put it on your finger. I want to do it right, and that will take a couple days to plan out... and we need some time alone and away. Thursday night, maybe... Maybe Saturday. We'll see."
I'm looking forward to presenting my Knight with his ring. A reminder of his submission to me, and my willingness to take control and lead him. I am considering buying myself a simple key charm necklace. No, my Knight is not locked, but I like the symbolism.
