Happy Birthday, Alex
Jason bustled around the kitchen trying to remember the instructions
Brian had left for him. Cooking really wasn't Jason's strong suit, but he wanted
to make an extra effort for Alex's Birthday.
His mate's actual birthday was tomorrow and they were having Joe and
Maryanne over for a big family dinner, like they did for any special occasion
these days. Jason loved his new family, every last member of it, but every once
in a while it was nice to have a small intimate dinner with just the man he
loved. Tonight was one of those nights.
The kids had all been packed up and everyone had taken off to Joe and
Maryanne's a half hour ago. The house was quiet, peaceful. Not something that
happened very often when living with seven other men and four children. Jason
look down at his flat stomach and patted it. Soon to be five children. A huge
grin broke out on his face as he thought about how Alex would react to his
Ever since last Christmas, when they'd decided to start a family, they
had been trying. But month after month passed without any success. Jason
admitted he'd started to think there might be something wrong.
Then three days ago he'd woken up feeling a little queezy. Jason hadn't
thought anything of it and went about his day. By lunch time he was feeling
normal again and forgot all about it. The same thing had happened for the
previous two days.
Jason had mentally counted back in his head to when the previous new
moon had been and started to get excited…and terrified. He'd gone out during
the day and bought a home test, and just about fainted when two little blue
lines showed up.
He'd been ready to call Alex on the spot and let him know, when he
paused with his finger on the button. This was a much better way to tell his
mate. He'd rushed around all day organising the surprise and couldn't believe
he'd managed to pull it off.
Jason had even called Eternal Ink, Alex's tattoo parlour, and spoke
with Suzie, one of Alex's employees, and enlisted her help in keeping Alex at
the store until seven. Jason glanced at his watch and realised Alex was due
home any minute.
The table was all set, candles in place and lit, beer chilling in an
ice bucket along with some water for Jason. Dinner was just about ready. The
steak only needing another minute before it could be taken off the heat and
rested before serving. The oven roasted vegetables Jason was serving with the
steak were ready and keeping warm in the oven.
Jason had just removed the steaks and covered them with foil to rest,
as per Brian's instructions, when the deep rumble of his mate's motorbike could
be heard as he pulled into the garage. Brian's palms started to sweat. Even
though he had a fairly good idea how his mate was going to react, he was still
bloody nervous. It wasn't everyday he informed the man he loved their lives
were about to be turned upside down.
Jason flicked off the light over the dining area as he heard the bike
shut off. He didn't have to wait long for his mate. "Where is every—"
Alex stopped mid word as he walked in to the room and surveyed the area. Jason
smirked. He loved being able to render his mate speechless at times. Admittedly
a lot of those times were in the bedroom, after a hot and heavy session of fucking.
Just thinking about that had Jason's prick perking up, wanting some action.
"What's all this, Sweetheart?" Alex asked as he strode over
and bent down to kiss Jason. Jason wrapped his arms around Alex's neck and
allowed himself to get lost in the kiss. Alex straightened, but Jason didn’t
break the kiss or let go. His mate's large hands made their way to Jason's ass,
squeezed and lifted him up. Jason wrapped his legs around his mate and groaned
as their hard dicks came into contact.
Alex eventually broke the kiss, much to Jason's annoyance.
"Jason, what’s going on?" Alex asked again.
"Surprise." He grinned widely at his mate. "I wanted a
quiet evening to celebrate your birthday, just the two of us, so I can give you
my present in private."
"Thank you, sweetheart, but you know you didn't have to go to all
this trouble," Alex said as he lightly kissed him again.
"I know, but I love you and wanted tonight to be special."
Alex looked at him enquiringly but Jason wasn't about to spill the beans yet,
even though he was dying to just blurt it out. Instead he smacked Alex on the
chest. "Let me down, dinner's ready." Alex grunted but complied.
Jason dropped his feet back to the ground and stepped away from Alex.
"Go get cleaned up while I serve dinner."
"Yes, boss." Alex capitulated.
"And don't you forget it." Jason laughed and jumped when
Alex swatted him on the rear. "Hey," he said indignantly.
"You got a problem there sweetheart?" Alex crossed his arms,
his grin positively wicked.
"Yeah, if you're going to spank me, then I need to be naked,"
Jason shot back. The desire that flared in his mate's eyes was humbling.
"Go clean up," he said before Alex had a chance to take things
Alex turned and left the room and Jason busied himself with serving
His mate walked back in the room just as Jason placed the two plates,
piled high with steak and vegetables, on the table. Alex walked over and kissed
Jason on the cheek. "Thanks, Jase. Everything looks and smells amazing.
Love you, sweetheart."
"Love you, too, Alex." Jason smiled at his mate. He never
would have guessed when he'd first met his mate that they would ever get to this point in their future.
Hell, when they first met Jason didn't think there was a future for them. Jason didn't even want to think about what
his life would be like without his mate in it. Alex was his world.
They talked as they ate, just like they did most nights discussing
their days and any pack business that may have cropped up. Soon dinner was
over, both plates cleaned of all food. Jason had to admit he was a little proud
of himself for pulling off the meal.
"Thank you, sweetheart, that was delicious." Alex said as he
leaned forward and kissed Jason.
"You're very welcome," Jason said. "It was rather
yummy, wasn't it?"
"Ah huh. Is there anything for dessert?" Alex asked.
Jason waggled his brows at his mate. "There's a new bottle of
chocolate syrup in the cupboard, I bought it especially for tonight.
Jason heard the hiss his mate made as the man contemplated what they
could get up to with the syrup. He chuckled as Alex pushed back from the table
almost immediately and strode over to the cupboards, opening them one by one,
until he found what he was looking for. Alex had a shit eating grin on his face
as he walked back, bottle of syrup clutched in his hand.
"Shall we?" Alex asked as he held out a hand for Jason.
"Nope," Jason said as he shook his head.
"What do you mean no? I want to cover my mate in chocolate and
then take my time licking it all off," Alex said, his voice low and husky.
Jason groaned at the mental images his mate conveyed. God he wanted
"You need to open your present first."
"My present can wait. First I want to thank my mate for a
wonderful evening," Alex declared.
Jason shook his head again. "Present first, thanking and licking
second." He should have known Alex would get stubborn as soon as sex came
into the picture. Alex would spend all day every day in bed if it was up to
him. Not that Jason was complaining.
He reached under the table to where he had place Alex's present on one
of the other seats. Jason pulled it out and placed it in the space in font of
where Alex had been sitting. The small rectangular box was wrapped with silver
paper and a blue ribbon.
Jason looked up at his mate, Alex bent down and kissed his lips
lightly before placing the syrup on the table and taking his seat again.
He bit his bottom lip, as his leg started to shake under the table. Jason
really hoped this was what his mate wanted. He watched as Alex slipped off the ribbon
and tore open the paper.
Jason could see the curiosity on Alex's face as he looked down at the
plain box. Jason bit his lip harder as Alex lifted the lid on the box. Inside,
resting on a pillow of cotton balls was the pregnancy stick, with its two
little blue lines.
Alex stilled, and Jason held his breath. He didn't say anything just
waited. When he saw a lone tear trail down the side of Alex's face his heart
ached. Alex turned and looked at him, his expression hard to read.
"I… I'm going to be a daddy?" Alex whispered. Jason melted
inside. He nodded, not able to talk at that moment in time.
Before he could process what was happening Alex had pulled him out of
his chair and was currently spinning him in circles, hugging the life out of
Jason laughed and ran his fingers through Alex's hair as he leaned
back to get a better look at his mate's face. "I take it you're
happy," he asked once they'd come to a stop.
"So fucking happy." Alex bent down and kissed him like his
life depended on it. Their teeth gnashed together, lips pressed tight, tongues
tangled in a breath steeling kiss that curled Jason's toes and made his dick
rock hard in seconds flat.
Jason wrapped his legs once more around his mate's waist as Alex
headed for the entrance to the room. Jason pulled back, breathing hard and
pointed at the table. Alex chuckled darkly as he strode over and snatched the
syrup of the table the turned again and started through the house.
"Happy Birthday, Alex." Jason whispered in Alex's ear before
biting down gently on the lobe, then licking his way down Alex's neck.
"Best Birthday ever!" Alex panted, his
voice strangled as he took the stairs two at a time.
