For a girl to get a caning in front of the whole school was an extremely rare event. For the punishment to be delivered on her bare bottom was unheard of. Yet this was the fate which was to befall young Sarah Mortimer; told to put her cigarette out by the bus driver, she had responded with a volley of obscenities which had shocked the elderly couple to the extent that they had, upon returning home, telephoned the headmistress immediately.
He was away on business, but he didn’t trust me. He rang to check I was in school uniform, but he wasn’t convinced. ”You’ve got 30 seconds to text me a picture to prove it. And I tell you, Kayleigh, if I’m not happy with the way you look then you’re going across my knee when I’m back tomorrow night”.
You’ve let me down, you’ve let the family down - and most importantly you’ve let yourself down. We’re all totally disgusted with you. I hope you’re thoroughly ashamed of yourself. You’re nothing but a disgrace. A rude, selfish, naughty little girl. Now, Alicia. I think you know what’s going to happen now, don’t you? Yes? Come on then. Get that dress up, and get across my knee!
This is so all your fault … I’ve never even been in trouble at school before, and now I’m getting the cane, like one of the naughty girls! And the trouble I’ll be in when I get home tonight! You do know that he’s on the phone to our parents right now, don’t you? I’ll be grounded forever! And it’s all because of you and your stupid ideas, Carly!
No … not at all, Headmaster. Thank you so much for telling me what’s happened. No … please rest assured I mean to … errr … discuss it with her the very minute she gets back from school!
Katie, what have you don’t THIS time?
Ah. Yes. Ummm …. that. Well. Err … nothing really, sort of. Oh goodness me, is that the time? I really must be going!
Try one of these, Rachel. My boyfriend gave me them last night. And that’s not all he gave me either, hehee! It was more fun than bloody cross country, that’s for sure! What about you, Faye? Do you want one too?
It was a fairly common punishment in Serena’s house; one uniform fault too many and she’d be stripped down to her underwear for the rest of the day, or week, or whatever. She spent so much time in her underwear that she actually came to almost prefer it to her regular clothes. The only problem was when he found fault with her underwear … then she was stripped to the bare, turned over and smacked soundly.
