M. Leighton Week *Jackson POV*

So ... It's our last day with M Leighton Week 


But no worries!! We have a SupaSpecial Something for ya!! Oh yeah It's Jackson's POV!! 

Take it away Jackson....

(Jackson and Madly’s first kiss- JACKSON’S POV)
I had an idea, a way we could avoid looking suspicious as we scouted the Stratford house.  I tried to ignore the fact that my plan involved teasing Madly, something I knew to avoid at all costs.  The last thing I needed was for her to stop hating me. 
“Come on,” I instructed, taking her by the hand. 
I felt her fingers tremble within my grasp.  I tried to ignore it.  
We emerged from the dappled shade of the trees into the bright sunshine.  I stole a sidelong glance at Madly.  What I saw was like a sucker punch to the gut.  
She was bathed in light from head to toe.  Her hair glistened like platinum and her skin glowed in creamy perfection.  She turned her face up to the sun.  I watched the golden rays kiss her lips, lips I’d been dreaming about for forever it seemed.
As I watched her, I knew I finally had an excuse to let my guard down.  And damn it all, I was going to do exactly that.
“Do you remember when I almost dismembered Collin DeSpirito because he tried to kiss you against your will after your third-level graduation?”
Madly looked up at me, at first in surprise and then in confusion.  
“What?” I asked.  I couldn’t stop my smile.  I was very satisfied with the way the plan was working out.  Very!  Despite the obvious pitfalls, I knew it would be worth it to spend a few minutes with Madly just being myself, the self that couldn’t get her out of my head.  “You mean you don’t remember that?”
“Of course I remember that.  I just- I’m just—”
I laughed, as much at her reaction to me as the memory of Collin DeSpirito.
“Who could blame the poor guy?  The way you flirted with him—touching his arm and laughing up at him—he was overcome by your extraordinary beauty.  I’m sure if I had killed him, he’d have died happy.”
“I wasn’t flirting with him.  I was just—” 
“Oh, come on!  You had the attention of every guy at the ceremony.  It’s almost as if you were trying to make someone jealous.” Before I thought better of it, I winked at her.  I was caught off guard by how happy I was just being with Madly.
Before she could comment, the prolonged creak of an opening door reached our ears.  I stopped and turned toward Madly.  We weren’t alone.  
It was time to turn up the heat and make our ruse convincing.  I ignored my inner Sentinel as he asked me who I was trying to convince.  “Admit it.  You were trying to make me jealous.” She looked so confused by my turnabout I had to prompt her by whispering, “Sell it, Madly.”
Her face was not only beautiful, but very expressive.  I watched in fascination as understanding dawned and, with it, determination.  
What is she up to?
It wasn’t until she turned on her brightest smile then stretched up on her toes and wrapped her arms around my neck that it clicked.  She was going to play along.  But she was going to play dirty.
“Of course I was trying to make you jealous.  How else was I going to get you to kiss me?”
She was taunting me, challenging me.  
Challenge accepted, I thought.  Gladly!
“Is that what you wanted?  For me to kiss you?” I would likely never have another opportunity to touch Madly freely and I wasn’t about to let the chance pass me by.  I dragged my fingertips up and down her sides, trying not to imagine what it would feel like to reach around and cup her perfect breasts.  When she shivered, I felt it all the way down in the pit of my stomach.  And, of course, much lower.
“Mmm,” she murmured.  
All I could think about in that moment was doing something to elicit that delicious sound again.  I knew it was only fair to warn her first, but I didn’t give her much time to react.  “You asked for it,” I said then quickly covered her mouth with my own.
I didn’t intend to do more than just barely brush her lips.  But then I felt the electricity.  The jolt made its way through my body and erased every ounce of wisdom I possessed.  
Before I knew it, my hand was in her hair and I was devouring her mouth.  Her lips parted, giving me just a tiny taste of the sweetness of her tongue, and I heard a groan.  I couldn’t be sure if it was hers or mine. It mingled between our lips like we shared it.
“What are you kids doing in my yard?” a harsh, old voice called, shattering the moment and awakening me to our purpose there.  It took me several seconds to find my way back from where I’d wanted to take Madly, from a place where that mouth and that body and that princess could be mine.
“Sorry, ma’am,” I called.  “We were just out for a walk, heading that way.” I pointed toward the other side of her house.
“Be on your way then.  There’s no trespassing on my property.”
“Yes, ma’am.  I apologize.  We were just leaving.”
I turned to continue our walk, taking Madly’s hand and pulling her along with me.  It was over.  But God, how I didn’t want it to be!
