Here’s the other smut bribe for @outlanderedandoverhere! Hope you all enjoy it! I’ve also come to the conclusion that @outlandishchridhe is the other half of my brain sometimes. Writing with her is an incredible amount of fun and it’s thanks to her this got finished. Enjoy!
Jamie sighed and looked at the shaving kit beside him. He was tired, but his face itched like he’d been rolling in nettles. The water in the bowl still steamed and he moved to begin the long process of shaving.
“Wait a moment,” came her soft, smooth voice. “Why don’t you have a seat and I’ll shave you? You’ve been working all day.”
“Aye, and I smell like it too.”
“You smell far better than some of my patients today. Sit.”
He did, pleased to be off his feet for a moment. Claire went to the basin and began lathering the soap before coating the shave brush in it.
“Off with your shirt. It’s soaked through.”
With a grunt of effort, he pulled his shirt over his head, leaving it in a sweaty pile on the floor. Before she asked, he stripped off his stockings and breeks as well, taking in a great deal of pleasure at being naked. It was much cooler this way, without all that cloth keeping in his body heat.
“My my,” she said with a laugh. “You look like Jemmy does when he runs around without his pants.”
“Well, he is my grandson, so it tracks, aye?”
Lifting his head, he looked up at her to see her dressed in only her shift. Her hair was plaited neatly over her shoulder, dark against the white linen.
“Have I told ye lately how beautiful ye are, Sassenach?”
With a pleased smile, she soaped his face.
“Not in the last hour or so, no. Why? Am I looking particularly beautiful tonight?”
“Oh aye, verra beautiful in that shift.”
He lifted his chin so she could finish lathering his face. One of his eyes peeked open when he felt something soft against his thighs.
“Ye plan to sit on me while ye shave, do ye?”
“Easier access,” she said, a gleam in her eye.
The cold metal of the razor touched his skin lightly as Claire began to shave him. Her strokes were sure and steady, the hands of a professional. He’d seen her doctor enough people, including himself, enough times to trust her implicitly. All that mattered to him was that she was there, within his reach, not scattered across time. She had made her choice a dozen times over and he would never let her go.
He looked at peace, eyes closed and shaving soap lathered over his sharp jaw. No matter how many times I saw him, his beauty always struck me anew. He was beautiful and he was mine. Gently, I wiped the last smears of soap from his skin before leaning in to kiss him. Though his eyes had been closed, he didn’t seem surprised. I tasted the cheese he’d had with his lunch, and the ale he’d washed it down with.
“Before this goes any further,” he murmured quietly. “Perhaps ye should put the razor down on the table, aye? Wouldna want ye to stick me on accident.”
“What about if I stuck you on purpose?”
“Weel then,” he said, one eye snapping open in amusement. “You’ll have to tell me what I’ve done to deserve such treatment.”
I chuckled quietly, running my fingers through his thick hair. His rough, warm hands slid up my legs, pushing up the hem of my shift.
“Claire,” he breathed. “Do ye ken how much I love ye?”
“Yes,” I answered him, bringing his mouth back to mine. “I do.”
The chair beneath us creaked dangerously as Jamie shifted to be more comfortable. His kisses became more frantic, hungrier. Both hands found my rump and he squeezed, moaning in satisfaction.
“And do you?” I asked, pulling on his hair so he looked up at me. “Do you know how much I love you?”
“Aye, I do, a nighean. Ye traveled two hundred years for me. Twice, though ye didna ken it the first time.”
“We had two children, adopted another out of a French brothel.”
Jamie sat up, pulling me closer to him as my arms moved around his neck.
“We’ve too many grandchildren to count,” he continued. “A beautiful daughter who’s as brilliant as her mam.”
He untied the ribbon at the neck of my shift, pushing it down to puddle about my hips.
“And our first daughter waiting for us,” my voice caught in my throat. “In heaven.”
“Aye,” his own voice cracked. “Our beautiful Faith.”
As our mouths came together again, the chair creaked once more and I felt us falling. Jamie gripped me to him while my arms flailed about to try and catch myself. All I caught was the corner of the small table, bringing it down with us. The bowl hit the ground just after we did, the shaving soap erupting like an explosion.
I felt lobs of it land on me, making me flinch. A large glob landed on on Jamie’s chest as he groaned.
“Christ, Sassenach. That fat arse of yours nearly killed me!”
I glared down at him, dipping my fingers into the soap on his chest.
“Och aye,” he said, patting my bare backside. “Verra fat and verra round. The most perfect arse, I say.”
I couldn’t help my giggle as we moved off the debris of the fallen chair.
“I think you are the most perfect arse right now, my love.”
He shrugged, hands moving up my back, smearing soap over my skin.
“Ye have such soft skin, mo chridhe.”
“And all my teeth.”
I demonstrated the fullness of my teeth by nipping his ear. I kissed him deeply as his hand snuck between us. A knock on our closed (and bolted) door had Jamie grumbling.
“Yes?” I asked, somehow keeping the trembling from my voice.
“We heard a crash,” Briana said. “Is everything alright?”
“Oh yes,” I answered, eyes rolling shut as Jamie filled me. “We’re quite all right. Just helping your da shave.”
There was a pause and Jamie’s mouth fell open, releasing a silent moan of pleasure.
“Oh. Oooohhh,” Bree said. “I see. I’ll ah… I’ll just keep the boys downstairs with me, then.”
“That’s a verra good idea, lass,” Jamie said, his voice a little deeper than usual.
I waited until Bree was down the stairs to start moving against him.
“It’s a good thing I finished shaving you already.”
“A-aye. It is.”
Rocking gently back and forth, I let my eyes close and focus only on the feeling of him - of us. He muttered in Gaelic, though I wasn’t paying enough attention to translate. My fingers dug into the muscle of his chest as I rode him. His hips lifted to meet mine with each thrust.
I felt him shift beneath me, but didn’t think anything of it until I was on my back, his thick hair falling down in a curtain. I grunted and bit my lower lip, grinning up at him.
“You’re mine, mo nighean donn,” he said, recalling our time at Leoch.
“Shall I call you master?”
“Aye, if ye like,” he said with a chuckle, lacing his fingers with mine. “Ye could call me laird, or sire…”
He pulled my arms above my head and settled between my legs. We must have made a bit of a sound when he’d rolled us over.
“Behave,” I hissed at my husband. “Yes, darling?”
“Have ye had a fall, Granny?”
Jamie sucked on the bottom of my ear and I did my best not to make a sound.
“No, darling I haven’t. I’m quite alright. Go on downstairs to your mama.”
“Have ye seen granda? He promised to take me fishing today.”
“I’m sure… Jesus H. Christ!” I breathed while Jamie began churning his hips. “I’m sure he’ll be down soon, darling.”
“Aye Granny. Are… Are ye sure you’re no’ hurt?”
Jamie clamped a hand over my mouth briefly.
“Yes,” I said finally. “I’m sure darling.”
Jemmy scampered off and Jamie grinned at me.
“That was very rude,” I said.
“You promised to take him fishing and here you are, with me. Didn’t even tell him you were here.”
He rolled his eyes, bringing his hips down hard as I stifled a moan.
“If I had,” he grunted, moving his hips again, “he’d have found a way to climb in through the window to be sure I’d still take him fishing.”
“That would be… one way… to have that conversation with him,” I responded, breathless.
Jamie stopped moving and stared down at me, incredulous.
“Ye mean Bree’s no’ told him about any o’ this yet?!”
I laughed at his shocked face.
“Not really. Though he’s lived on a farm for some time, now. But, perhaps we can dispense with the talking for a bit, hmm?”
I swayed my hips beneath him, reminding him of his unfinished job, and pulled him down for another scorching kiss.
Grandson forgotten, Jamie returned to me with vigor, still careful to make the least amount of noise possible to avoid any more intrusions.
With each return of his hips to mine, I felt more and more complete. Instead of crying out as I usually would, I moved and lightly bit his neck to stifle the sounds rising from my throat. He groaned in response, pushing harder and faster into me, losing a bit of the control he had as he neared his ending.
“Oh, Jamie,” I moaned softly, feeling him shudder with me as my muscles attempted to pull him in, keep him with me forever.
His body eventually fell slack, near enough to me that I could hold him to my breast still while we floated back down to Earth.
“I should have ye shave me more often, no chridhe, if this is the result I get from it.”
I swatted him lightly across the back of his head, but held him close to me still, laughing softly.
Minutes or hours could have passed, but eventually we heard Jem’s voice floating through the house and outside, seeking out Jamie again.
“You better go and get him to take him fishing,” I started, poking Jamie around his ribs. “You did promise him after all.”
He groaned, but made no move to get up, rubbing his freshly shaved face into my chest before nipping me softly.
“Aye,” he sighed. “I suppose that I should.”
“Don’t worry, darling. I’ll be here waiting for you when you return.”
I fluttered my lashes at him as he leaned in to kiss me soundly, cherishing each second we had alone together.
“I’m counting on it, mo graidh.”
Heaving himself off the floor, and taking me with him, he started to dress as I watched the lines of muscle in his back as legs work, covering his beautiful body.
Mine. I thought to myself, noticing a small, red love bite on his neck. He turned when he heard my laughter, but I said nothing, simply reaching up on tiptoe to kiss his face and lips.
“Go on. Go and take our grandson to have fun.”
He kissed me again before going in search of Jem. But I knew as soon as he found him.
“GRANDA! What’s happened to ye? Did the midges find ye and bite ye?!”
“What are ye on about now?” Jamie asked.
“Yer neck, Granda! Ye’ve a bite mark on it!”
I heard Bree laughing downstairs, as I was, and heard Jamie’s loud reply.
“Come on, lad. Let’s go and fish now, aye?”
Shaking my head, I looked out the window of our bedroom, watching Jamie lead Jem to the stream, still chattering away and Jamie unconsciously rubbing at his neck, and smiled. I would never trade any of this life for the world.
And I would definitely be giving Jamie another shave in the future.
