This is the finished project of my absolutely beautiful hutch. Sir Raven made me keep it, and had the idea to refinish it years ago. She went out early to get the paint color just right, bought new handles, fixed the door so it shuts easily, and even painted the inside.
i sat in the kitchen with her watching her work and just being available if she asked for help because the hutch is rather bulky to move by yourself. i planted herbs and just hung around.
When it was finished, i was in awe. i couldn’t stop telling her how beautiful it is. She had a smile in her voice and reply when i breathed, “Do you know how amazing it feels when someone looks inside your heart and sees your vision and makes it happen?”
“Yes, baby girl, I do. All the time. Every day.”
i realized she was talking of her Mastery of me, and my work as her slave.
i mused that she must have a smile on her face a lot more than i know, because every time i walk into the kitchen i see my hutch and smile and feel full of gratitude. She agreed and pointed out how she is always happy to come home to her slave.
i am the smile on her face.
That is all i have ever wanted to be.
She is the pulse of my heart.
