Alexis stood at the cosmetic counter looking over various shades of lipstick, as the perfect red eluded her. At the moment had she been holding Kristina she would have dropped her. Thank god all that had fallen to the floor were the bags full of toys, clothes, and stuffed animals she'd bought for her baby's first Christmas at home. The unexpected kiss had left her breathless, and tingly. He tasted familiar, and when she opened her eyes she couldn't help but smile, as she gathered air back into her lungs. "You're bad, and getting nothing for Christmas Jasper Jacks." "It's tradition my beautiful ex-wife. You are standing under the mistletoe." Jax told her as he held the sprig of greenery over her head. "Not by choice. Have you gone around town kissing all the unsuspecting girls with your little twig of whatever it is?" She said with a wave of her hand. "Little twig? You know me better than that Alexis." His low, seductive tone resonated in her ears and sent shivers down her spine. "Fine I do, but only you and I know just how well we know each other, and I think it's best we keep it that way." "You're free I'm free, and we're consenting adults. What's stopping us from getting to know each other again?" He asked moving closer, and hunching down to get in her face. "I am. You've been extremely neglectful of late, and as much as I love and adore you that hurt. Not to mention you'd forget about me as soon as the next young chippy, or Brenda wannabe comes along. It's quite clear to me that you're bored Jasper." "I just love the way you say Jasper, and you know I don't let just anyone call me that. Why don't we take this conversation to somewhere more private than the middle of this department store? I think I saw a vacant utility closet back in the juniors section." "Seriously Jax. Cut it out." Alexis said as she reached down to retrieve her shopping bags. "Not until you agree to spend Christmas with me." "It's Kristina's first Christmas at home. I'd like to have it there, and spend it alone with her, but thanks for the offer. Now I have more shopping to do, so if you'll excuse me." "Alright, but how about one more for the road?" He asked holding the mistletoe over her head once more, wrapping his arms around her waist, and taking the kiss he desired. Alexis didn't disappoint him. She couldn't help it. The man was a great kisser. He enticed her traitorous tongue to engage his. She felt warmth seep into her bones, and head south. It took all her willpower to leave his arms. She managed to get free and backed away from him slowly. "That was low, even for you Jasper." Alexis said as she pointed her finger at him, and tried unsuccessfully to keep the impish grin off her face. "Christmas with me! Think about it!" He yelled over the heads of the other shoppers. He saw the wave of her delicate fingertips in his direction, and then disappeared into the crowd. Jax' kisses had turned her on more than she wanted to admit. It was fast approaching two years with out sex for her, and for a woman with a healthy sexual appetite that was unacceptable. She hadn't had time to dwell too much upon the fact with all that had gone on over the past year and a half, but it was always there in the back of her mind; that little voice telling her to get herself some. "Why not Jax? He's easy, familiar, comfortable, and he does that little move that hits just the right spot to make you scream Alexis." She thought as she found herself perusing through the men's underwear section fingering a blue silk t-back thong. Alexis shook off her lustful thoughts for the blond Aussie, and then wondered if she bought the thong would he do a strip tease for her. She laughed to herself, decided against the skimpy undergarment and left Wyndham's.
"Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow!" Jax said as Kristina little fingers dug in deep and took hold of the blond spikes of his hair. Kristina laughed at his pain, but released her grip, and proceeded to pat the hard, gelled tips with the palm of her hand. "Let me guess. You charmed your way past Alice." Kristina turned at the sound of her voice, and squealed her delight. Her mouth moved as if trying to will the word mama to burst forth. It was only a matter of time. Alexis picked Kristina up and hugged her tight, planting tiny kisses all over her face and neck. "He did Ms. Davis. He gave me the eyes and he was brandishing mistletoe." She said in her defense. "It's Alexis Alice, and I don't blame you. The eyes and mistletoe are a lethal combination." Alexis said with a smile. "Deadly, not to mention the accent." Alice deadpanned with a smile of her own. "I'll be in the kitchen fixing dinner if you need anything." "Thanks Alice. You don't give up do you?" "Never." Jax said as he stood and walked over to her and Kristina. "Don't even think about it!" He was reaching in his pocket for that damned mistletoe again. "It's not for you." He leaned in and dangled it above the baby's head. "Can Uncle Jax get a kiss Kristina?" He asked puckering his lips. Kristina looked at her mother as it asking if it was ok to bestow affection on the man. Alexis nodded her consent with a smile, and watched her daughter smush her mouth against his' in that forceful way they do when they fall into it, and put all they're weight behind it. Alexis pulled her back after a few seconds. "Thank you Kristina. That was the best kiss ever." "She gets the kissing gene from me."
"You think you're a good kisser?" He asked. "YES!" Alexis told him indignantly as she sat Kristina back down on the floor to play. "Who told you that?" "Well Ned for starters, and I just know that I am. You don't seem to mind them. When we were exchanging all those "phony kisses" while we were married I heard a moan escape you more than once." "Stick out your tongue." "Why?" "Because I'm feeling an urgent need to suck on it." "Is it hot in here?" She asked as she fanned herself. "It's not hot enough." "Sure it is. OK here's the deal. You can spend Christmas with me here, at my place. It will be you, me, Kristina, Alice, her mom, and Zander. If you can handle that you're welcome to join us for dinner. So what's it going to be?" "Can I invite my mom for Christmas dinner?" "You'd better." "We'll be here." Jax said. "Great I'll see you in two days. Goodbye Jasper." She said walking to the door and opening it. "Hey, hey not so fast. There was something in your room that you wanted to show me wasn't there? Something in a lovely shade of pink maybe?" Alexis swallowed hard her whole body tensing up in sexual excitement. "I hate you Jax. Alice!" "Yes ma'am?" She asked poking her head into the living room. "I'm going to go take a shower. Keep an eye on Kristina for me ok." "No problem. Come on Little One. Bye Mr. Jacks." "Goodbye Alice." He said as he watched her disappear into the kitchen with the baby. "Don't just stand there looking so cocky, make yourself useful and take me to bed," "You're so demanding." "And you love it. I hope you brought lots of condoms." Alexis said as he carried into the bedroom, and locked the door behind them. "DAMN IT!" "Please tell me you stubbed your toe or something." "Unfortunately not." "DAMN IT!" "This is one of those rare moments for us Alexis.” Jax said in all seriousness. “This is a “fuck it” moment?” “If ever there was one.” “Well then, come here and make love to me. I’ve missed you too much, and I’m willing to risk it.” “I was hoping you’d say that.” “Merry Christmas ex-husband.” “Merry Christmas my favorite ex-wife.” “I’m your only ex-wife Jax.” “Why do you think that is?” “Just face facts. I’ve ruined you for other women.”
“Damn I was afraid of that.” He laughed and pushed her back on to the bed, and lowered himself on top of her.
