My collar arrived! Master gave it to me on Saturday but let me wear it for a day to see how it felt and make sure it fitted nicely. It felt fine and on Sunday night He collared me properly.
We did it with very little ceremony - He tied my hands behind my back and had me kneel while He soldered the clasp together. That was about all. That might sound a bit anti-climatic but neither of us are really into being overly ceremonious. I liked that it was simple and just between us.
When He was sure he had finished He told me to stand up and He hugged me so tightly. Then He started to untie the rope on my hands and arms. I asked why because it's unusual for me to be tied up for such a short space of time - unless there's been some sort of panic. He replied "I want you to cook me dinner now," then He finished uniting me, turned me around and said, "and I want you to hug me back."
So that was what we did for the next... hmmm, it may have been around half and hour or more - we hugged, kissed, cuddled, chatted. Pretty vanilla stuff for a couple who'd just finished a collaring ceremony. But it was so nice - neither of us wanted to do anything else just then.
After that I did cook dinner and He did His work (He runs an online business). We ate on the couch watching TV and He let me sit next to Him.* I find it cute how low protocol we were that night - especially since the night before had been quite high protocol with crawling, beating, begging and some mild forniphilia.
So, I'm collared now, I'm happy and in love and there's a possibility of another visit sooner than we thought because I'll have some days off this week.
*This rule changes with us a bit. When we first started going out we didn't really extend the D/s dynamic into day to day stuff very much but lately we've been doing it more. Sometimes when He's sitting on the couch I'll sit or kneel next to Him and other times He tells me to sit with Him - it all depends on His mood at the time and I love both.
