SPOILER ALERT: I'm on chapter 17 in Fifty Shades of Grey.
BUT THEY DID! And it was marvelous! And glorious! Fuck Twilight! This book is candy-covered crack for the soul!!!!
OK admittedly...I was a little freaked when he spanked her. Not because of the pain...but because of the humility. I don't do humiliation well and don't know that I ever could have made it through that. The "lie down over my knee" part was bad enough. But then it went on and on and on (kindof like my annoying posts when I'm flabbergasted at something Christian has said or done.)
So I'm all excited after he showed up at her apartment when she sent him the "I wish you would stay" email (don't quote me.) I mean, seriously...how friggin knight in shining armour is this guy when he wants to be?!? When he was just standing in her doorway? Ugh - I could have melted right there.
And then he goes and spanks her. And that's when I got all "ohhhh noooo...I thought I loved this book but I don't know if I can deal with this."
And then, boyfriend COMES THE FUCK BACK to her house when he reads her email! And Kate is yelling at him in the other room...and all I can think is "GO KATE" when she says something like "She's been crying constantly since the day she met you". THAT RULED! Because he needs to know! And he even told her that, himself. And then that gorgeous piece of ass SPENT THE NIGHT. The second he put his Blackberry down and took off his watch, I was beside myself.
And then she wakes up and he's clinging to her like the little boy he truly is inside. I can't WAIT to find out more about why he's the way he is.
1 - Clearly E.L. James is taking us ever-so-slowly into Christian's crazy world of BDSM...much the same way he is easing Ana into it. She makes him spank...she makes him stay the night. And I loved it. I guess I needed easing. Who knew.
2 - Ana is the one with the control in this relationship. It's so obvious. She (passively-aggressively) says "jump" and he says "how high?"
And there is something - right there - that I've been working out in my brain with this book. The whole passive side of Ana. NOT that she's passive-agressive as a person - but Christian leaves her no choice but to be that way in this relationship. Let's just say I have a few passive agressive people in my own life...so I get her way of thinking.
OK off to read. I just had one of those "OH NO SHE DI'NT moments and had to share. :)
