Jefferson's patience's were wearing thin, as he sat by the fireplace in the Tower Room pretending to read his book while Rumple ran on about some spell work with Regina. Rumple had given him the task of keeping Regina away from happiness with King Leopold. It was a job Jefferson had actually come to enjoy very much.
At first it was a challenge to get her to even look at him let alone smile, but now he knew he was just about the only one who could bring a smile to her lips. Knowing that made him smile, I am damn good at my job. He thought as his eyes once again wondered up from his book across the room to Regina.
She had her back to him and as their arrangement she was ignoring him while Rumple was around. Though she was starting to grow less and less worried about them being caught together as she realized how much power she really did wield. But Jefferson had also noticed as her worries drifted away so did her kindness. Her behavior seemed to please Rumple, but he on the other hand didn't care for Regina's short temper and harsh tone of late.
But yet here he was sitting here wishing Rumple would hurry up and leave already so he could get Regina alone. He felt a smile grow on his face as he watched Regina and thought about what he wanted to do to her.
"Hmm…It's not perfect but it will do for now." Rumple commented. "I have business to attend too." With a snap of his fingers he disappeared in a cloud of purple smoke.
"Finally!" Both Regina and Jefferson declared.
Regina smiled turning from the table to look at Jefferson. "I thought he was never going to end that lesson today."
Jefferson snapped his book shut leaving it behind on the chair. In three quick strides he took her in his arms and kissed her. He brought his hand up to his hat and with a little spin the two of them appeared in his bedroom.
Regina clung to his arms tightly. If she can't handle these little trips, what is she going to do with I take her on a real trip? Jefferson wondered to himself.
"Do you always have to use that hat? The castle here does have stairs doesn't it?"
Jefferson's smile widen at her reaction, as she fought to stay be the one in control of their relationship. Was that the right word? Relationship? What is this between us? He wondered, but out loud he teased her. "You seem to like all the things I can give you when I use my hat."
"Well I like it better when it brings you to my bed chamber and my protection spells."
"Rumple's gone on business he won't be back for hours. We are completely save here." Jefferson leaned back in and kissed her neck as his hands went to her corset. In a few quick seconds he had it untied and pulled it off letting it fall away to the floor.
Regina's fingers had found their way first to his scarf quickly undoing it and dropping it to the floor, then to his vest buttons pushing it back off his shoulders.
He carefully picked her up and laid her down on his bed. He pulled off her skirt, tossing it off to the side of the bed. He positioned himself off to the side of her. His left hand reached across to grab her waist, gently rocking her back and forth towards him, as he leaned forward like he was going to kiss her but just stop short.
Regina smiled at his tease, she leaned up to meet his lips. Her hands pulled on his shirt and pulling it free from his leather pants, she brought it up over his head. With a smile Regina let her fingers explored Jefferson's muscular chest and stomach.
Jefferson watched the way she looked at him. She does care for me; this has become more than just sex for both of us now, hasn't it?
Jefferson kissed his way up her neck to whisper in her ear. "You know it is hardly fair that I am topless and you are not."
Regina pushed herself up and let him pull her shirt up over her head. Jefferson moved her back into the center of the bed. His lips found their way to her breast, making her moan. He let his right hand trail down her right side to her underwear. He moved it to the side, his smile widen when he felt how wet she already was. He let his finger slip inside her bringing another moan.
He moved his legs pinning her to the bed, not allowing her much space to move as he started moving his finger slowly in and out almost as a tease, at first. Her breathing deepen and hips arched to meet his finger willing him to move faster. She let out a moan and grabbed his left thigh with her right hand, as he slipped a second finger in.
Regina arched her back trying to move her hips higher still trapped by Jefferson's legs. Jefferson picked up his pace as she dug her right hand into his left thigh, and her left hand gripped the sheets above her head. Her breathing quicken as he quickened his pace even more.
Jefferson watched as Regina closed her eyes and tighten her grip on him. She rocked her hips harder, as her breathing deepened. He loved having Regina under his control like this. I am the only one who has this kind of control over her. God I want her so badly. But let's see how badly she wants me. Jefferson pulled his fingers out and moved back down the bed from her.
"Jefferson!" Regina gasped in surprise, her hands quickly going to her panties and pushing them down and pulling them off in frustration.
Jefferson stood at the end of the bed watching her throw her throw her panties off the side of the bed, not carrying where they landed as long as they were no long on and in the way. She wants me as much as I want her. Jefferson thought as he quickly pulled off his leather pants.
He carefully moved on top of her and gently pushed his way inside of her. "Is that what you wanted Regina?"
"Yes." She whispered before meeting his kiss.
His right hand traced Regina's back up to her neck where he grabbed her hair holding her close for a moment before she carefully pulled back and moved off to the side of him.
Jefferson laid there for a few moments wishing he didn't have to leave her so quickly tonight, but he had business to attend too with Jacqueline. And Jacqueline, like Regina was becoming, was not someone you said no to.
"Do you think we have time for a quick nap before Rumple returns?" Regina whispered, enjoying the way it felt to have Jefferson's hands holding her tight.
"I am afraid not tonight." Jefferson kissed her forehead. "I have business elsewhere tonight."
Regina started to pull away but Jefferson tighten his grip trying to keep her beside him. "I don't have to go just yet."
"You always have business elsewhere." Regina muttered pulling back out of his grip to stand up looking for her clothes.
"Well between you and Rumple I do keep busy, and well-funded." Jefferson popped himself up on his elbows as he watched Regina start to use magic to tie up her corset. "Regina don't do that, I can lace it like I usually do." He moved to the side of the bed expecting her to move over so he could finish it for her.
"I don't need your help to dress Jefferson."
She replied way to harshly he thought. He tried to not let the hurt show on his face but her increasing harshness and cold comments of late were starting to bother him.
"Don't look so shocked Jefferson. I do dress myself all the times you are not there with me." She turned to fix her hair in his mirror.
Jefferson pulled on his pants. Standing up he grabbed his shirt. "Regina…" He started not sure how best to put his thoughts into words. "You know I want to see you more. But you are a Queen, and married, which does not make it easy for me."
"I know my place." Regina demanded turning to face him. She waved her hand and Jefferson was fully dressed, including his coat. "Do you know yours?"
Jefferson looked her over, and he quickly filled the space between them. He grabbed a handful of her hair at the base of her neck tilting her head up like he was going to kiss her but he stopped just short of it. "My place is pleasing you until you don't want me anymore."
Regina smiled. "Yes, yes it is." She kissed him.
Regina pulled back first leaving Jefferson once again wanting more. Damn I have to be careful of these feelings I have for Regina. They could be trouble down the road, as Rumple creates his perfect little monster, for whatever is coming.
Regina handed him his hat. "Is it my place to take you back to the castle?" Jefferson playfully flipped his hat back on to his head.
"No I think I will walk, I don't want to hold you up any more than I have from your business."
Jefferson noted the coldness which had crept back into Regina's tone as he watched her walk to his bedroom door. "Nothing is more important than pleasing you, your Majesty."
She turned, "I thought I told you not to call me that?"
Jefferson gave her a toothy grin and shrugged his shoulders at her, waiting to see what she would do about it.
But she just shook her head at him and asked. "Will I see you tonight at my castle?"
"Is it yours now?" Jefferson tried to joke, but cut it short on the glare he received. "No…not tonight Regina." He shook his head. "But I do believe I should be free tomorrow night if you so desire my presence." He rocked slightly on his heels his hands on his coat's collar as he waited for her answer.
She tried to keep the happiness off her face but Jefferson noted she hadn't quite learned to hide her emotions completely yet. "I will see you then. Good luck on whatever the job is tonight, Jefferson."
"Thanks Regina, but I am The Hatter I don't need luck, just my amazing skills." Jefferson smirked reaching up and giving his head a spin.
