Author’s Notes: Another response to Jinni’s Quickie
Challenge for pairing #45.
Willow placed the phone back on the hook. ‘Great,’ she
thought sourly. ‘I have to wait. I hate waiting.’
She frowned as she glanced at the dagger. ‘So much for a quick
escape.’ She sighed and put the object back into its velvet bag.
Her thoughts were interrupted by a ‘tsking’ noise. She
sighed again. She knew who was probably making that irritating
noise. She turned and lo and behold she was right. Her sexy
nemesis, Jason, was leaning on the door frame.
“Why the long face, Willow?”
She muttered under breath so softly that he couldn’t catch what
she said even with supernatural senses.
“What was that? You could come closer if you don’t want to
talk louder. I’ll even let you whisper into my ear if you would
prefer.” The last bit was spoken low and husky.
Willow felt her skin prickle with his voice. Hmmm, not very nice
that. She thought only the vampires here could do that trick. Must
just be his natural charm then.
“Wesley told me to wait. He has to research if that is the right
object for the latest coming apocalypse. I hate waiting. Now, I
have nothing to do.” Willow had a pout on her lips.
Jason smiled widely. Just the opportunity he was looking for.
Couldn’t let this slip through his fingers. Must get her alone
to work his wiles.
“Well, since you have no responsibilities waiting for you then
you will have to run off with me.”
Willow chuckled. “I don’t think so, Jason.”
He placed a finger to his lips and pretended to consider the
situation. “Well, if I can’t convince you to run away with
me. How about dinner?”
Willow chewed on her bottom lip. “I don’t know Jason. Can
you behave out in public?”
Jason grabbed her arm and started to drag her out the door.
“Nope I can’t behave. I promise to not get us arrested
Willow gave a snort at his comment. “Well, I guess that will
have to do then.”
Thankfully, Jason took her to a nice café near the college campus.
She wasn’t really dressed for a fancy occasion nor did she want
to have one. The place was casual and packed with students.
They were quickly escorted to a table. Jason seemed to know
everyone that worked here. It made Willow very suspicious but then
everything that Jason did made her suspicious.
“Jason, do you come here often?”
“No, not really. I just happen to know a lot of these
Jason laughed at her tone. “Don’t be paranoid, Willow. They
aren’t out to get you. Just me.”
Willow rolled her eyes. He was such a flirt. But he did make
things entertaining for her even when he was bugging the hell out of
her. She might actually miss him when she goes back to California.
He grew on you whether you wanted him to or not.
Willow looked over the top of her menu at her impromptu date for the
evening. “So, what’s good here?”
His eyes sparkled with amusement. “Why me of course. But you
should try the special. It is almost as tasty as you.”
Willow smirked. “You don’t know that for sure. I could be
Jason grinned at her flirtatious tone. Progress finally. He would
wear down her resistance yet.
“True, it is an uninformed opinion. Care to let me taste you?
It’s all in the name of scientific progress.”
Willow laughed. “Jason, you have no shame at all. Do you?”
Jason smirked. “Shame is for other people. I’m a shining
example of why shame is completely unnecessary.”
Their playful banter was halted by the return of their waiter. They
ordered their food and waited for the waiter to leave before more
flirting happened. Willow was having the time of her life. Jason
could be nice when he wasn’t groping. Of course, he still said
the most outrageous things to get reactions. But she decided it was
more fun to flirt back then to run away.
Willow couldn’t help a little sigh of disappointment escape at
the thought that this wonderful evening was coming to an end. She
was having the time of her life playfully flirting with Jason. He
made her feel sexy and that was something that she hadn’t felt in
a really long time.
“What is with the sighing, Willow? You’re not deflating are
you?” He had a look of mock horror as he quickly looked for any
Willow blushed at the attention they were attracting. “No,
Jason. Remember I am not your normal date. No need to inflate me at
all.” She arched an eyebrow at him.
He gave a chuckle at her sarcastic biting tone.
“The night is still young and you’re still at my tender
mercies. I say we go somewhere else for fun.”
Willow halted at his declaration. “Hmmm, your idea of fun is
getting naked and kinky.”
Jason gleefully nodded. He grabbed her arm and started to drag her
into a club that was just a few blocks down from the
restaurant. “Don’t worry, plenty of time for that.
Let’s go slum with the normal humans.”
Willow didn’t get a chance to shoot him down for presuming that
she wanted to get naked and kinky with him. Part of her did but she
was going to tell him that. First, she wanted to trim that excess
ego he carried around with him. Really she was doing a public
service by keeping him in check. No, she didn’t get a chance to
give a necessary retort that he would hear. The club was too loud
He quickly dragged her to the dance floor just in time for some slow
grinding music. Willow felt herself heat up as he brushed against
her. No daylight to be seen between the two of them. Willow
frowned at Jason as he smirked at her. His hands were already
headed for out of bounds areas. He really didn’t have any shame.
Must be a character defect.
Willow mouthed the words, “Behave.” Jason pretended to not
understand. Willow growled and stomped on his foot. This only
seemed to encourage him. His grin had widened in reaction. Willow
rolled her eyes. He really does get off on pain. ‘Stupid
werewolf,’ she thought to herself.
Then Willow decided that turnabout is fair play. He could dish it
out but can he take it? Jason was too busy sniffing her neck to
notice the evil glint to her eyes or the naughty grin on her
face. ‘No time like the present,’ she thought to herself as
she slid her hands down to do some groping of her own.
Jason stiffened in surprise at where her hands had wandered to. She
stifled a laugh as she gave a good squeeze in retaliation. Jason
pulled back and waggled a finger at her in reproach. Willow threw
her head back and laughed heartily but she still didn’t let go.
A war of sneaky naughty touching soon broke out. Nothing too
noticeable to anyone that might have glanced in their direction.
They were both smiling at their game. Jason really brought out the
bad side of her.
Jason decided to up the stakes. He started nibbling on her neck.
Willow heated up at the sensation. Her neck was so utterly
sensitive. This was completely unfair. She wouldn’t back down
from a challenge. She pulled him away from her neck and proceeded
to kiss the breath right out of his body. He panted as she pulled
She gave a wink and began to return the neck nibbling favor. She
felt a rumbling sensation. He was purring. She knew that she must
be getting to him. She made her way leisurely to his ear and sucked
in the lobe. His hands tightened around her waist. He growled.
Willow nipped at his ear lobe for making that sound. It only caused
him to growl louder in response.
Jason put both his hands on the sides of her face and directed her
back to his waiting lips. Their tongues dueled fiercely. The farce
of dancing halted as they kissed for all they were worth. They
broke away from the kiss and exchanged an intense stare. Jason
tilted his head in unspoken question. Willow nodded quickly. She
grabbed a hold of his arm and pulled him out into the night.
Jason couldn’t wipe the silly grin off his face. He just loved a
