Author Notes: Inspired by the manip done by TexasAries titled 'Seduction of the Summer Help' (http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-12159-36/TexasAries+Xander+s+Loving+Faces.htm). Xander made it as far as Smallville before his car died instead of Oxnard. *shrugs* Writers free license to alter and make it more workable . Martha is off visiting a sick relative and took Clark with. Jonathon offered Xander a summer job and a place to stay...things grew from there . Yep I'm evil. Maybe I'll go back later and expand it into a full fledged fic *evil cackle*
Splashing the water over his face and neck, Xander didn't notice Jonathon Kent's approach till the older man spoke at last, making him nearly jump out of his skin.
"Hey Xander, you good," Jonathon asked with a smile, forcing his breathing to stay steady, as he definitely appreciated the sight in front of him. The slow steady trails that the water left on Xander were driving him mad.
"Great Mr. Kent. I was just cooling off quick, before I finished off the last of the chores. Anything else that needed done besides those?"
"No, no rush either. Take your time and I'll get something thrown together for dinner quick. As hard as you've been working today, I figure you must be starving by now. Especially since you are so far ahead of schedule with things," Jonathon offered with a smile.
"Not a problem, shouldn't take more than an hour to finish off what's left."
"That's great Xander, it shouldn't take me much longer then that to get dinner thrown together, that's one thing that I did take advantage of Martha to learn about. She always insisted there was no real reason for me to have to learn how to cook, but it is enjoyable to do at times."
"Anything is good for me, no need to go to any trouble."
Glancing over at the younger man, Jonathon passed him a beer, giving him a nod at the questioning look he got. "Don't worry about it Xander. A beer now and then does not an alcoholic make. I know your technically under age, but it's not like your planning on getting drunk or going out driving after drinking."
"Thanks, I suppose I do have to get used to the idea that people can drink and know their limits," Xander offered softly. Staring out into the night, he let out a soft sigh. "It's hard to believe how peaceful and quiet it is around here."
John just chuckled softly at that. "Well it is out in the country, so it does seem that way. So what's really bothering you son, you always are so on guard like you expect something to jump out and attack you or something."
"Just old instincts I guess. Some times you just get that way I suppose," Xander offered, before he took a sip of the beer frowning ever so slightly at the taste.
"Some like it, some don't," John offered at Xander's expression. "Lots of things take time to discover if they're really to your taste or not." Taking a long sip of his own, he watched Xander carefully out of the corner of his eye, smiling as he saw the younger man begin to relax.
Sitting there in companionable silence, the two of them watched as the moon rose in the distance, just sipping idly here and there at their beers.
Finally after a good hour or so, Johnathon decided to make his own move. Setting his emprty beer down, he shifted ever so slightly closer to Xander and leaned close to gently brush his lips against the side of the younger mans neck, chuckling softly at the shiver it produced.
"I...I can't...." Xander said softly, starting to pull away, even though a part of him wanted to give in. "Your married Mr. Kent...and it wouldn't be right."
Jonathon let out a soft chuckle at that. "Martha and I are married in name only. We both did so, in order to keep the others secret safe and because back when we did get married this type of thing was far less acceptable Xander. If you don't want to, I won't force you...but if you do, I'll let you say when or enough at any point."
Sighing softly, Xander considered for a moment about his various options, before giving in. "I've never done anything like this before...so just go slowly please...I'll trust your judgement."
Leaning in closer once more, Jonathon brushed his lips over Xander's once, twice and then settled in softly for a third time, moving slowly and patiently, letting Xander get comfortable with the kiss, before pressing a tiny bit further to deepen it. Feeling hesitant lips part beneath his own, he slowly let his tongue out to gently trace at the outline of those parted lips.
Instinctively Xander brought his own hands up to clutch at Johnathon's hair, even while he felt the strong arms and hands wrap about him.
After a little while Johnathon reluctantly broke off the kiss and pulled back, panting as he fought to regain control he spoke huskily. "How about we take this inside, where we can be a tad more comfortable and not have to worry about anyone catching us Xander..."
Gulping Xander nodded his agreement, as he didn't trust his voice to remain steady if he spoke.
"Hey there, time to get up Xander," John called, "the days a wasting."
Languidly Xander stretched across the bed, his body rippling in subtle motion as he woke up. "Morning..."
"Yeah it is, much as I enjoy the sight and you are tempting me to stay in, we've got things to do. Of course the sooner we're done, the sooner we can play..." he trailed off teasingly.
Xander chuckled at that. "I haven't slept that good in I don't know how long, but I suppose you're right, time to get up and moving if we are to play later." With that Xander slipped out of bed, making his way to the bathroom to take care of his morning care, not batting an eye at the fact that he was buck naked, while Jonathon Kent was fully dressed.
Smirking to himself in the mirror as he brushed his teeth, after having taken care of everything else, Xander thought back on the events of the previous night with pleasure.
"I really do hate to leave, but summer's gone and it's time to head back home," Xander said sadly, watching as his lover of the past month turned away.
"I know son...I mean Xander," Jonathon corrected himself right away. "It's been wonderful while it's lasted but with Martha and Clark due back in a few days..."
"I know. Even if she would be all right with it, I somehow doubt that Clark would be as open minded about it. Besides which, we both have our own lives. Maybe... juat maybe the future will hold some more happiness for both of us. But if not, at least we had this time together.
"That we did Xander, that we did," Jonathon agreed softly, his voice soft and filled with unshed tears.
Moving to stand in front of the older man, Xander reached up and pulled him down for a final kiss good bye.
As always remember to feed the muses and please be kind. Happy muses usually mean that story lines can be expanded ;-)
