I gazed over at Jasper as he slept soundly next to me. He looked so peaceful. My hands itched to caress him, but I remained still, just taking in his every feature. It was still dark out, but I was wide awake. I knew I wouldn’t be able to fall back asleep. I still couldn’t believe that he was here, in my bed, even if he has slept here a few times now since that first time last week. I smiled softly as I thought back to that night.
We had watched ‘The Court Jester’ after dinner. It turned out to be a favorite of both of ours. I had a hard time concentrating on it though, with Jasper right next to me. I had my arm around his shoulder, and the sense of peace the evening had given me made my heart swell. I wished we could spend every night like this. Just us, enjoying each other’s company. It had felt so good to make dinner together earlier.

The movie had ended, but I hadn’t really noticed. I was too busy watching Jasper’s face. He looked relaxed, happy and completely kissable. I was already hard for him, but tried very hard not to act on it. His timing, not mine. I had to remind myself of this again and again.
He looked up at me and saw me staring at him. My breathing hitched as he started kissing me. When he straddled my lap, I about lost it. I had to wrap my arms around him tightly to stop myself from taking over. He had to lead. I had to let him have that choice. When he bucked his hips into mine, it took all I had to hold him still. I wanted him so badly, and the feeling of his erection rubbing against mine was almost too much.
I practically begged him to tell me to take him home. I knew I wouldn’t be able to last long if this kept up. And then the most amazing thing happened. He wanted to stay; he didn’t want to stop, either.
We spent a long time kissing, letting our hands explore each other’s body. I wanted him so much, that I was literally aching for him. I’d ended up putting a stop to things not long after, before we could go much further. I knew what I wanted, and I was now pretty sure that Jasper wanted to go further. But I knew things needed to go slow, and it was up to me to slow them down.
I pulled away and got up, holding my hand out to him. He took it as he got up off the couch. I pulled his body flush to mine, placing my hands on his ass as I did so. His lips were red and a little swollen, as were mine, I was sure.
“I think we might be more comfortable on a bed, rather than the couch. Please stay?”
I had to give him one more out. I watched his eyes carefully as I waited for his answer. Not that I had to wait long. He nodded, his eyes intent on mine, and dark as if a storm were raging in them. I placed a soft kiss on his lips, took his hand in mine again and pulled him to my bedroom. My heart was racing, but I was able to calm myself with considerable effort.
I pulled him into my room, not stopping until we stood right at the side of my bed. I ran my fingers up his arms slowly, before trailing them down his chest. I paused as I got to his belt, watching him closely, needing him to be sure. I felt his fingers ghost over mine as he started to unbuckle his belt. I bit back a moan as he let the belt slip out of his pants and dropped it next to the bed. His eyes never left my face as I slowly undid the buttons of his jeans. I smiled slightly as I remembered back to the last time I’d done so, all those years ago.
I brushed my lips against his, and slowly worked my way down, leaving a trail of kisses along his chest, down his abs. I pulled his pants down, and he stepped out of them. His cock was straining against his boxers, but I left them on, pretty sure that Jasper wasn’t yet ready for full-on nudity. I let my fingers slide up his legs, letting my hands rest on his hips. His hands came up to my hair, tangling in it as he pulled me into a deep kiss, the first of many until we fell asleep in each others’ arms . . .
I was brought out of my reverie as Jasper stirred slightly in his sleep and brushed his hand against my now hard cock. I hissed slightly at his touch, and gently took his hand in mine. I briefly entertained the thought of pressing his hand against my hard on to wake him up. I glanced over at the clock and let out a long breath. It was time for me to get up and get ready for work. So instead of acting on what I wanted to do, I placed his hand across his stomach. I then tried to get out of bed without waking Jasper up.
I walked to the bathroom and turned on the shower, letting the water come to the right temperature as I brushed my teeth. I glanced at the bed to note that he was still asleep, before stepping under the shower. I let the water relax my muscles for a moment. I grabbed the shampoo and started to wash my hair.  My thoughts were still on that first night and I was so lost in my memories that I didn’t hear Jasper as he got up and joined me in the shower. I jumped slightly as I felt his hands join mine and start massaging the shampoo into my hair.
“God, Jazz…I thought you were still sleeping. Did I wake you?”


I moaned softly as he continued his ministrations, and I let my arms fall down to my side. His voice was still a little thick from sleep.
“I rolled over and you weren’t there. Missed you, woke me up…”
He placed a soft kiss on my shoulder before pulling my head back to rinse out the shampoo. He poured some body wash into his hand and started to lather up my back as I let out a low moan.
“Sorry…had to get ready for work. Mmm, that feels so nice, Jasper….”
I heard him chuckle softly as he moved to my arms and then reached around to my chest. He pressed up against me as he rolled my nipples between his fingers. I could feel his cock up against the small of my back.  Jesus, if he continues with this I am not going to last long….
“Oh God…Jazz. Work…”
Fuck, when did he become so confident?  Hell if I care, just keep touching me… He slid his hand slowly along my abs, down to and then around my now throbbing erection.  Tease. His other hand trailed down my abs as well. Slowly he kneeled behind me and began to lather up each leg in turn, very carefully avoiding my cock. I tried to turn around, but he put his hands on my hips to still my movement.
“Uh uh, Edward. You have to get ready for work, remember?”
“Jassssperrrrr…” I hissed between my clenched teeth.  “Shit…”
“Did I do something wrong?” He asked in mock innocence as he leaned around my leg, staring up at me with a huge shit-eating grin.
I groaned as he got off his knees and moved his hands from my hips to my glutes, massaging them firmly. I placed my hands on the wall to prevent myself from grabbing him.
I mumbled “Fucking hell…..”
His hands roved back to my hips as he placed a kiss on my neck. I tilted my head to the side a little, letting out another moan as his hands moved to just above my pelvis and I could feel him hard against me again. His fingers teasingly brushed my cock.  I removed my hands from the wall now that Jasper was standing behind me again. 
“Jazz, please…”
Screw work. I’ll be late. His ran his tongue roughly up my neck. I turned my head, searching for his lips. I felt one of his hands move up to my chest as his lips found mine. I kissed him hungrily as he resumed teasing my nipples, causing me to moan in his mouth. Please, don’t stop. I wanted to turn around and face him, but I was overwhelmed by the feel of his touch, so I let him choose how far he was willing to go. He broke from the kiss and seductively whispered into my ear.


“Please what, Edward?”


He pinched my nipple between his thumb and forefinger, and wrapped his other hand around my dick, his thumb moving ever so lightly over the head. I let my head fall back on his shoulder and closed my eyes, whimpering softly.
“Don’t stop, please.”
Good God, I don’t know where this is coming from, but please, please don’t let it stop….. His hand ghosted along my shaft in an agonizingly slow manner while his other hand continued to tease my nipples, and I felt like I was going insane. It was as though he was killing me and reviving me simultaneously. It was the sweetest torture. I gasped as he took my earlobe into his mouth, nibbling on it, sending shivers down my spine. My hands twitched as I wanted to touch him, but I kept them loosely at my side.
Jasper grasped my cock firmly, increasing his pace, twisting his wrist a little and teasing my head every time his hand came up to it. I let out a loud moan and couldn’t keep from pumping into his hand. Fuck!  I needed to touch him! I turned my head slightly, putting my fingers in his hair, and pull his face to mine. I kissed him passionately, swiping my tongue over his lips. He opened his mouth and our tongues fought for dominance.  My balls began to tighten as he brought me closer to the edge. Another flick of his wrist, a pinch of my nipple. So close.
I grunted into his mouth “Dear God….Jasper…”  
Seemingly before the utterance could even escape my lips, my toes curled as a tingly rush pulsed throughout my body.  As a guttural groan escaped Jasper’s lips, his hips and rock-hard cock bucked into me again, and with a final thrust into his palm, I came explosively, harder than I’d ever done, growling into his mouth as I did so. My head lolled back against his shoulder as he gently stroked me through my orgasm.  A breathless, “Hmmmm…yeah…fucking amazing” was the most coherent sentence I could form.   
I pulled away from him, turning around and swiftly wrapped my arms tightly around his shoulders. My breathing was ragged, and I tried to take deep, steadying breaths as I held on to him. He returned my embrace, entwining his arms around my waist and I nuzzled his neck, murmuring in his ear.
“Talk about a good morning….”
As I placed a kiss on the pulse-point of his neck and looked up at him, my hand made its way to his straining cock.
He sucked in a sharp breath before saying, “Edward, as much as I love your touch, shouldn’t you be getting ready for work?” He chuckled softly.
I groaned. “Don’t wanna.”  I want to make him feel as fantastic as he made me.
I hugged him tighter for a moment before letting him go with a sigh. 
“As long as I can give you a rain-check, you’re right, I do need to get going. Besides…” I shivered and turned the shower off, since the water had gotten really cold. “I don’t much care for cold showers.”
I winked at him. He chuckled and grabbed us each a towel, handing me one. I dressed quickly, after he assured me he was fine and I should just get to work.
“Maybe I’ll take that cold shower,” he joked.
I’d given Jasper a key a few days before, wanting him to feel free to come and go as he pleased. In part, I had done so because I truly wanted him with me whenever possible. But it was also because I knew he still hadn’t told his parents, and I couldn’t help but feel that he might need it if ever they found out.
I tried not to dwell on it as I left for work. Jasper had said he was going home to study, and wasn’t sure what other plans he had for today. In truth, I wanted to just stay home and spend as much time with him as I possibly could. Real life doesn’t work like that though, so I would endure the working hours. I say endure because my father still gave me those knowing looks whenever he passed my office. It was driving me around the bend.
I didn’t have much opportunity to be on IM, as there were several people who needed my assistance and attention today. I started to get a little grumpy by lunch time, which was when Mom called. She wanted to know how things were going with Jasper. After telling her a little about what had happened since I had last spoken with her, she asked the one question I didn’t know how to answer.
“Your father and I would like to have you over for dinner soon, sweetheart. It’s been too long since we had a family evening.” She paused a moment, before adding. “Perhaps Jasper could join us, too?”
I pinched the bridge of my nose and took a deep breath.
“I don’t know, Mom.”
I’d like nothing better than to have them meet him, but is he ready for that?
“Can I get back to you on that? We haven’t actually talked about that yet…..”
“Of course, sweetheart. Talk to him and let me know. I’d like to have dinner Saturday after next, if that works for you?”
I checked my calendar quickly before agreeing.
“Usual time?”
“5 PM, as always. See you then, Edward. Love you.”
“Love you, too, Mom.”
She had already hung up, but I held on to the handset, absentmindedly tapping it against my chin. Do I ask him? Or should I wait. I sighed. Damn it.  If I take him to meet my parents…. I don’t want him to feel pressured. I glanced at my computer screen. I hadn’t logged on to IM yet. I put the handset back in the cradle. It took me a good five minutes to get myself to log on. Maybe he’s not online.
Jazzman: Hey stranger! Busy day, today?
No such luck. My fingers hovered over my keyboard. Suck it up, Cullen!
EACullen: Hey, yourself. Yeah, it’s been a little crazy all morning. Just got on my lunch, so figured I’d check in.
Jazzman: 🙂 Sorry to hear you’re having a hard day. How long is lunch?
EACullen: I actually only have about 20 minutes left, and I haven’t eaten yet. Mom called at the start of lunch…….
I bit my lip nervously. If he doesn’t ask, I won’t say anything about it right now….
Jazzman: Everything okay? *frowns*
I rubbed my hands over my face. Time to bite the bullet.
EACullen: In a manner of speaking….. She asked me to come to dinner Saturday after next. Family dinner.
Jazzman: Ah, I see. That’s not so bad, is it?
EACullen: …..
Jazzman: Edward?
EACullen: *sigh* Jazz, the invitation was for both of us. How do you feel about meeting my parents?
Nothing. I stared at the screen, waiting for an answer. Shit. Minutes ticked by, and I was starting to get really nervous, when my phone suddenly rang. I frowned as I answered.
“Cullen Tech; Edward Cullen speaking.”
I heard someone take a deep breath on the other end. What the hell? I glanced at my monitor. Still no answer. The person on the other end of the line spoke so quietly, I almost missed what was said entirely.
“What time?”
I blinked.


I heard him take another deep breath, as if he were steeling himself for something.
“Yes. What time?”
I raked my fingers through my hair, my heartbeat picking up as his words finally registered with me. He wants to go?
“5 PM. Jazz, are you sure? I don’t want you to feel pressured or anything…”
I was babbling, so I bit my cheek to stop myself.
“Yeah, I’m sure. I just….”
He sounded frustrated, and I could guess the reason behind it. I sighed softly.
“I know, Jasper. Thank you.”
“Sure. Uhm… I’d better let you go. Lunch is almost over, isn’t it?”
“Yeah, it is. I’ll check in on IM when I have a chance, so we can talk more?”
Please be there.
“Alright. Bye….”
He hung up before I could respond. He’d sounded like he wanted to say more. I stared at the phone for a minute, as I thought over what just happened. I was pulled from my thoughts by the sound of someone talking to me. I didn’t catch what was said, and looked up to see my father in the doorway with a worried expression on his face.
“What was that? Sorry, Dad…didn’t realize you were there.”


“I asked if you were alright, Son. You look like you just had a bit of a shock.”
He eyed me carefully for a moment, the concern clear on his face.
“Yeah, Dad. I’m fine. Actually, that was Jasper on the phone just now.”


I realized I was still holding the handset and quickly placed it back in the cradle. I looked up at Carlisle again, a soft smile playing on my lips.
“Dad? Would you let Mom know to expect us for dinner Saturday after next?”
He smiled as he raised a brow.
“I most certainly will, Son. So we finally get to meet the reason for the light that’s been shining in your eyes these past few weeks?”
He smirked at me, and I blushed as I stifled a chuckle.
“I suppose you will, yes.”
A/N: Okay, I know some of you are going to be up in arms over this, so I’ll just put it here so you don’t need to message me to death over it ^_~.
Jasper knew what he was doing. No, Edward wasn’t being mean or inconsiderate by not returning the favor, so to speak.
It wasn’t about tit for tat, but giving.
So, like it or not, that’s how it stands ^_~.
Leave the boys some love ^_^
