Rogue's Weyr : "the Weyr is where the dragon is" -Brekke Rider of Gold Wirenth, Southern Weyr

This is something I've wanted to see for a very long time, so with some help from Lurking Dragon (thanx LD) I wrote it. I think we all knew this would happen. In the event you've never read the 'Melody' stories, I strongly recommend you read them before reading this story, you may not understand everything happening here and why.

This story contains adult material. This means adults only! Lurking Dragon's characters are used with permission.

Finally, I would like to thank Lurking Dragon and all others who have been writing in the 'rejuve' universe. This alternate reality has been my escape for many of my problems. So without further delay, I present to you all:

Melody's Wedding

July 15, 2763

Special Guest Story of Melody's Stories

Melody Johnson sat alone on the center of the couch in the living room. She held her red maple hairbrush in her hand, staring at it while gently running her finger along its contours. A small tear welled up in her eye as she looked at the brush with a myriad of emotions.

Awe, contempt, love, hate, fear and respect were just a few of the emotions that made the already confused girl even more so. Melody looked up towards the holovision set, the only source of light in the room. She saw her much younger self over her mother's knees getting her bare bottom soundly spanked with the very same hairbrush she now held in her hands.

The holographic Melody bucked and squirmed as the brush came down over and over and over. Older Melody wasn't paying much attention to the scene. She already knew how it ended. She should know. She'd lived it.

"Melody, is something wrong?"

Melody turned to see the figure of her mother, Mary Johnson standing nearby. She was dressed in her nightgown, hardly unusual considering it was slightly after midnight.

"Oh, I'm sorry mom. I just couldn't sleep."

Mary sat next to her daughter and motioned towards the holo. "That was one of your first spankings." Mary continued to watch the scene for a moment. "It seems so long ago doesn't it?"

Melody blushed and flashed a very brief grin and remained silent. Her head was still down, and she was still playing with the brush.

Mary put her hand on Melody's arm. "You know, you have a very big day tomorrow. You should try and get some rest."

Melody sighed. "I know. I don't think I'm gonna make it."

Mary stood up and turned off the holo while reaching for Melody's hand to help her to her feet. "Of course you will. Come on, I'll tuck you in, just like old times."

That cheered Melody up slightly. She got up and followed her mother to the guest bedroom where Melody was tucked into the warm bed. Despite being 21, Melody enjoyed the attention.

When Melody was settled in her bed, Mary reached over Melody's head to activate the delta inducer. "Sleep well Melody. Tomorrow is going to be the biggest day of your life. Tomorrow you're getting married."

Mary planted a gentle kiss on Melody's cheek and left the room.

Lieutenant Johnny Devine. A tall, handsome young man. Everything you would expect in a Star Fleet officer. Johnny normally had nerves of steel. Whenever he went into battle he was well known by his fellow officers as a pillar of strength.

But this night was different. The normally strong Johnny was a mass of nerves.

Johnny was at the local Star Fleet base, practicing and re-honing his shooting skills on the range there. His wife to be was just being tucked into her bed as his commanding officer walked onto the range. The computer detected the presence of a visitor and terminated the simulation.

Johnny put down his laser pistol and snapped to salute his commanding officer.

"At ease."

Johnny relaxed his pose. "Is there something I can do for you sir?"

"Yes Devine. You can go home and get some sleep

"Sir?" Johnny asked.

"You're getting married tomorrow Devine. You need your rest."

"There is no way I am going to be able to sleep sir. I'm way too keyed up."

Johnny's C.O. laughed out loud and slapped Johnny on the back. "It sounds like Johnny The Iceman Devine is nervous. Come on Devine, I'll buy you a drink."

Johnny put his pistol in his locker and went with his commanding officer for a drink and then went off to bed.

"Melody. Melody... wake up!"

Melody rolled over and looked into her sister's eyes. Ellen was shaking Melody's shoulder vigorously.

"I'm up, I'm up" Melody muttered.

Ellen hopped up and down and clapped her hands. "Oh, I'm so excited, I can't wait 'till you and Johnny are married."

Melody slowly rose from the bed and smiled. "I've been waiting for this day for a long time too, sis."

Mary chose that moment to enter Melody's room. "Good morning Melody, are you ready for your big day?"

Melody yawned, stretched and nodded.

"Good" Mary said. "Come on down to breakfast when you're ready. We have an early present for you."

"Okay." Melody replied. "I'll just take a quick shower and I'll be right down."

As Melody showered she wondered what present her mother had in mind. It couldn't be her wedding present. They would never have her open it without Johnny here. Melody sighed and reminded herself that her parents knew what they were doing.

Melody quickly dressed and brushed her hair with the red maple brush she had from her childhood. She kept it as a reminder of her past and also to use on the penitatas children she used to sit for. Melody smiled as she thought of all the sore bottoms this brush was responsible for, including her own.

Melody walked down the stairs and sat at the kitchen table with her parents, Ellen and Adam, Mary and Josh's 7 year-old hard timer. Melody noticed a box wrapped in a silver paper with a red bow on top sitting on the floor next to her chair.

"What's this" Melody asked.

"It's something we saved for you" Josh answered.

Melody tore the paper off the box and paused before opening it. "Go ahead" her mother encouraged her.

Melody opened her present and peered inside. Right on top was a small wooden case.

Melody opened the case and looked at her Good Citizen Award for the first time since she put it away on her 21st birthday. As she traced her finger along the edges of the polished metal, her mind instantly flashed back to the day she received it. She could still hear the thunderous applause from her schoolmates, feel the warmth of Johnny's embrace, the proud look on Mary and Josh's face, but most of all, she remembered the sense of pride she felt at her accomplishment.

Melody put the box aside and pulled out another relic from her childhood. Robin, her Spanking Susie doll was dressed in a replica of Melody's school uniform from when she was 12. Melody realised that was the last time she'd played with Robin. A quick check confirmed the doll's power cells were still charged. Melody activated the doll and turned Robin over her knee.

The doll was ridiculously small compared to Melody. The size difference made Robin look like a toddler of two or three, instead of the five or six she was supposed to be. Melody gave Robin about a dozen quick spanks with her palm to Robin's panty seat just for old times. Robin cried and begged not to be spanked, just as she was programmed to do.

Melody smiled and remembered how much fun she'd had with Robin. Melody pulled down Robin's panties and began spanking her much harder, just like Melody got when she was a little girl.

"WAAAH!" the doll cried as she squirmed around on Melody's lap. "Please mommy, please no spank Robin's bare bum!" Melody for her part was quickly reddening her doll's bottom.

When Robin's bottom was a bright red, Melody pulled up Robin's panties and sat the doll on one of the vacant chairs at the table. Robin cried her tears of remorse as Melody continued going through her things.

Melody continued to root around in the bottom of the box until she brought up something that made her shudder. She picked up the paddle and held it in her hands, admiring the artwork on its surface. It was the very same paddle she'd received on her second Christmas with the Johnsons, way back in 2748. Nearly 16 years ago.

"Maybe Johnny will use that on you" Ellen teased.

Adam coughed on his cereal and Melody blushed as Mary rebuked Ellen. "Ellen, that was not nice. What Melody and Johnny do is their own business." Mary paused for a moment. "Perhaps I should use that paddle on you."

This time it was Ellen's turn to blush. She was no stranger to parental spankings, even at 16 she still found herself over one of her parents' laps on occasion. "Sorry mom, sorry Melody." Melody smiled. "It's okay sis."

Melody pulled out some holo tapes from the box. "Those are copies of all the holos we made of you growing up" Josh explained. "I made them early this morning when you showed an interest in one of your recordings last night."

"Thanks dad. I'm sure Johnny and I will enjoy watching them.

Melody took a final inventory of the box. There were things she had made in school, old report cards, her old uniform from high school, and even some of her old school books.

Melody ate her breakfast in a stoned silence. She sat and picked at her food while remembering some events from her childhood.

She remembered her hearing after she turned 12 to determine if she would go to soft time or get a very early parole. She remembered how happy and relieved she felt when the judge announced that she would be paroled, on the condition that she remain with the Johnson family, and also remain subject to Penitatas- style discipline through her teen years, even though she would be, technically, a Completas. She remembered when Ellen came to live with them. Melody remembered graduating from high school, her first Halloween spent with Johnny.

But Melody's memories weren't all pleasant. Melody recalled Janie and all the suffering that she had went through at the serial rapist's hands.   Melody shuddered as she remembered what Ellen had gone through during her fight with Chronostatic radiation poisoning.

* * *

Finally, breakfast was finished and Mary and Ellen whisked Melody off to get her ready for her big moment while Josh took Adam to get the both of them dressed and ready.

Melody spent the morning having her hair done and getting dressed in her wedding gown. Melody had spent many hours picking out the perfect dress, and she was happy with her selection. The beautiful satin and lace number made Melody look like a super-model. Mary looked at her daughter and reflected just how pretty she was.

Ellen was dressed in a light blue gown somewhat similar to Melody's. Like her older sister, Ellen was turning out to be a gorgeous lady.  Mary and the rest of the bride's maids were dressed like Ellen, with light blue dresses and cute black high heeled shoes.

Finally, after hours of preperation, it was time for the big moment. Melody waited in the limo for her signal to enter. It was the longest five minutes she had ever waited, but finally, after years of growing up and waiting for what she was certain would come she entered the church.

Melody walked slowly down the aisle towards the altar and to her husband to be. Johnny resisted the urge to turn around, properly waiting for his bride to stand next to him. He stood tall and proud in his space black dress uniform, the black-and-silver ribbon of his Medal of Honor snugged tightly around his neck, the platinum and gold starburst tucked tightly under his neck.

Finally Melody stood next to Johnny and the two stared at each other for a moment then the minister began the service.

Melody recited her vows just as she had practiced. She stared into Johnny's eyes and watched him smile back at her. To Melody there was no one else in the universe at that moment except Johnny. She couldn't hear the minister and she was unaware of all the guests around her.

Johnny began his vows while looking into Melody's eyes. Unlike Mel, he was very much aware of where he was and who was around and that made him very nervous. For the first time in his life Johnny found himself almost too scared to speak.

A few people in the audience could detect an audible quiver in Johnny's voice as he recited his vows. They could see Melody's hand tremble as she put the ring on Johnny's finger. Finally the ceremony was over and they were announced as Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Devine. Johnny held his new wife in his arms and kissed her fully and deeply amid the thunderous applause of the spectators.

The happy couple ran to their waiting limousine between the upraised swords of Johnny's comrades and shipmates, amidst the continued cheers and applause of the guests. The limo took them to a local park for pictures with the rest of the wedding party. The lush green grass and full trees made for a dramatic backdrop for the pictures.

After the photos, Melody and Johnny were driven around to spend some much-needed private time before the reception.

The wedding reception was a lavish affair. A gourmet meal served on priceless antique china. No expense had been spared.

As the meal was winding down, Melody stood up and addressed everyone. "I would like to thank you all for coming today and witnessing the happiest moment in my life. I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Devine for providing me with the finest man in the universe. I would like to thank my sister, Ellen for being a true friend, for being there for me when I needed to talk to someone.

Melody took a sip of her drink. "But most of all, I would like to thank my parents, Mary and Josh. Thanks mom and dad for always being there for me while I was growing up, serving my penitatas sentence. For without your love, your encouragement, and without your discipline." Melody made a face. "I would not be here today. Thank you."

Melody listened to the applause of her guests.

* * *

The reception wound down and Melody and Johnny said good-bye to all their guests. Finally, it was just Melody, Johnny and their respective families left in the hall. Melody bid a tearful farewell to her parents and sister. After hugs and kisses all around, Melody and Johnny left for their honeymoon. A trip to a holiday resort planet where every whim of the guests were answered to. But that was a day and a half away on an interstellar ship.

It was an exhausted Melody and Johnny that arrived at the shuttleport just shortly after 1:00 AM. They boarded the ship and went straight to their cabin. After a brief hug Johnny sat on a chair and motioned Melody over to his side. Johnny patted his lap and Melody lay down across it. She felt Johnny lift the materal of her dress (she'd changed out of her wedding gown after they left the reception).

Johnny raised his palm. "I love you Melody" he said as he brought his hand down. The smack was barely enough to register on Melody's experienced bottom. This was a play spanking, something Johnny loved doing.

Melody enjoyed the play spankings too, but for a different reason. Mel felt secure over Johnny's knees. She loved the way his left arm wrapped around her waist and held her securely. But most of all, Melody loved how she felt after the spanking, as Johnny held her tightly in his strong arms. It made her feel safe and secure and loved. It brought her back to when she was just a little girl. Just like her mommy used to hold her.

After a few minutes of cuddling, Johnny carried Melody over to the bed and gently put her on the mattress. Johnny quickly tossed off his shirt and then gently removed Melody's dress. He then climbed into the bed with his wife and pulled the covers over them both.

Melody relished the warmth of her husband under the sheets. She closed her eyes and embraced Johnny in a long passionate kiss. And as their love-making reached a climatic peak, Melody felt Johnny's soul touch hers and she felt his unspoken words with every ounce of her being. "I love you."
