Well, during roleplay, my Master will somtimes hit me, and that's not a problem, I enjoy it, and He always makes sure not to really hurt me. But recently we were "playing" and He hit me in the face, and pretty hard. Harder than He meant to, and it left a pretty bad bruise, (I've gotten bruises before but not this bad/obvious.) and I was pretty shaken up. (he usually just slaps me, but he ended up hitting me with his fist this time.) We stopped and He was very sorry and made sure I was ok and took care of me. I have been nervous to do anything real rough latley, which is my Master's favorite thing to do. He says that He is fine with it and that I can take as much time as I need, and I know I will be fine in a little bit, I am just a little shell shocked. But I feel like I am letting him down in a way. He says He understands and He doesnt want to rush me. I am afraid that he is more disapointed in me then he is letting on. I guess my question is mainly to Doms. If you were in my Master position with your slave/pet/sub/bottom, would you be disapointed in them. Not just that you have to stop your activities, but dispointed in your sub themself? And have any Subs ever felt like this. Like your Master has told you he is not upset, but you still feel like you are letting Him down and guilty? Thanks!
