Pt. 1 | Pt. 2


After almost two hours of debating with Hamilton you were exhausted. You had been adamantly attempting to convince him that he needed to fix the mess he had made, but he rejected every idea saying that he didn’t want to just apologize otherwise he would “lose his edge” as a writer. It wasn’t until after he agreed to one of your several suggestions that you remembered how you were “frustrated” with Thomas.

“Well, again I am sorry, ma’am…” Alexander said, pushing the elevator button.

“It’s…fine,” you raised your hand to your temple, giving it a slight rub accompanied with a faint smile, “Just…let’s get this fixed.”  

Once Alexander was out of sight behind the elevator doors, you looked around and noticed almost everyone was gone and those who weren’t were headed on their way out. You glanced at a nearby clock, realizing your conversation had kept you at work an hour later than usual. Smirking to yourself, you knew exactly who would still be here. You made your way to Jefferson’s office, and entered without knocking. 

Thomas looked up from his papers at the sound of his door locking. Smiling casually at you, as you mischievously walked toward his desk. 

“Well, hello ma’am, what can I do for you?” He sounded as if he had forgotten how he left you earlier.

Resting your elbows on his desk, you responded, “I think you know what you can do for me.”

Impulsively pushing your lips against his in a slow, sensual, manner. Slightly pulling away from the kiss every now and then, allowing your teeth to gently tug on his bottom lip. Not too hard, but enough to remind him of what happened earlier. Once you broke the kiss, he raised an eyebrow at you.

“Well, Darlin’…just let me finish some work and I think I can help you,” he told you, looking back to his papers.

You whined a little at the fact that you had to wait, but soon decided it was your turn to tease him. Backing away from his desk and turning around you unbuttoned your blouse. Looking over your shoulder to see him concentrating on his work. Dropping your blouse to the floor, you slipped off your bra, before attempting to quietly unzip your skirt. Once again you glanced back to see him smirking while he wrote. He knew exactly what you were doing.

Once you were in nothing, but your heels, you sat in the chair in front of his desk, crossing your legs, and crossing your arms over your chest. Covering all the “best parts” with your own body. He glanced up, then back down, smiling to himself, shaking his head slightly as he finished reading a report and gave it his signature for approval. 

This was one thing you couldn’t figure out about him. How did he have so much self control? So much patience? You always tried to get him to be the needy one, but somehow it never worked; he made you the needy one. He remained calm and collected until HE decided otherwise. It was oddly arousing. 

“Now,” Thomas removed his glasses, setting them on his desk, before coming to the front of it, resting against the edge, gracefully sliding his hands into his pockets. “What was it you needed?”

You stood, placing yourself right in front of him, your thigh brushed against the inside of his. Taking his tie between your fingers, running them playfully up and down the silky black fabric, before looking up at his brown eyes, “You know damn well what I need.”

He leaned forward, lips brushing against your ear as he whispered, “Show me.”

He gave you a challenging look as he leaned back to see your reaction. 

Damn his southern charm.

You paused for a moment as a smirk spread across his lips. Why was this so attractive? Was it really that easy for you to get excit- you snapped out of the daze he had spun you into and began your attempt at being more seductive.

“Well..I need this.” You placed a hot kiss just under his jaw, “and this,” you continued moving your lips down his neck, “oh, and this,” you whispered into his neck, running your hands down his chest slowly feeling each muscle under his purple dress shirt, “I’ll need these,” you lifted your head softly kissing his lips, “and this” keeping your lips close to his as you tugged gently at his belt buckle before sliding your hand a little further down. Your lips found their way to his neck once again, as you slowly palmed him. Stopping when you heard a low chuckle from him.

“Is that it?” He asked.

“Thomas…” you whined, dropping your head against his shoulder, placing both hands on top of his thighs. Once you got past your slight embarrassment, you looked up, for one last attempt, “I need you.”

“That’s all you had to say,” he stood from his desk, rested a hand gently on the side of your neck, thumb brushing your cheek as he kissed you. Adding his other hand to the small of your back. The slight coldness of his hand made you push your chest into him, causing him to smile into the kiss.

You melted into his touch, finally receiving the contact you had been longing for. His lips slipped down to your exposed neck as his hands travelled down your curves, his fingers made their way closer to your heat, but you pulled back. 

“This doesn’t seem fair,” you gave a frustrated look raising your eyebrow as you tugged on his shirt.

“Why don’t you do something about it then?” he stole a kiss from your lips and kept them inches away from yours, “Slowly…”

You slipped the tie out from under his collar, tossing it onto the chair you had been sitting in moments ago. You let out a quiet moan of pleasure when he slipped two fingers between your legs and began rubbing circles around you. 

“Keep going, baby,” he told you, keeping eye contact with you.

You bit your lip as you steadily undid each button. Once you were halfway done with his shirt, Thomas slid two slender fingers into you. Inhaling sharply you pushed your hands onto his chest, practically collapsing onto him. 

“This really isn’t fair,” you breathed into his neck.

“Never said it would be, Darlin’…but I did say keep going.”

Straightening up and repressing moans you continued revealing his skin, at the ungodly slow pace he had requested. Finally, you pushed it open, running your hands all over his now bare chest. He removed his fingers from you. Evoking a whimper from you. He slid it off and tossed it onto the chair. 

“Happy?” He asked, fingertips teasing your sides.

“Mmm, yes, very!” you pulled him into a hug, fingernails grazing his back, feeling his skin against yours sent a rush through your body, “Isn’t that better?” you began kissing just under his collarbone. 

Thomas responded with a tap to the back of your thighs, prompting you to jump. To which you wrapped your arms around his neck and your legs around his waist. He carried you to the couch in his office, sitting down. You spread your legs a little more, grinding your hips against his. His hands moved to your hips to help coax you into a rhythm. Your fingers tangled into his curls, you gave them a slight tug in one hand. He responded with a low growl, attaching his mouth to the base of your neck, sucking harshly. One of his hands slipped between you, rubbing circles around your clit.

“Fuck,” you whispered.

“Someone’s excited,” he smiled against your skin, applying gentle kisses to the places he had been sucking on.

“Feels like you are too,” you acknowledged his hard length, pressing into you.

“Why don’t you do something about it then?” Thomas teased, pushing his hips up against yours, moving back and forth at that slow pace that drove you crazy.

You untangled your hands from his hair and fumbled with his belt buckle, while he continued his motion with his hands, occasionally sliding his fingers down your folds, teasing at your entrance. You pulled at the button on his dress pants, making quick work of the zipper, tugging his boxers down just enough to release his evident arousal. 

“Keep going,” his voice commanding.

You complied, wrapping your delicate fingers around him, pumping slowly. After a few moments, your pace become more and more desperate. Now making a swift circling motion around his length. Thomas matched you by instantly pushing two fingers into you, causing a delighted moan to fall from your mouth. Your free hand rested on his chest, supporting yourself. 

“That feel good, baby?” He kisses your open mouth.

He took you moaning and tightening your grip on him as a yes, and with that he added a curl to his fingers. You broke the kiss immediately tossing your head back giving him open access to your neck. His pace was heavenly as he continued to suck at your skin. When to your shock, he yet again removed his hands from you, just as you began to feel that familiar knot in your stomach.

When your tilted your head back up, you were met by Thomas licking is fingers clean. Your chest was rising and falling at a rapid pace, due to the mix of pleasure and frustration. Thomas took your chin in his hand and gently brought you in for a  kiss, he pulled away still holding you.

“Ride.”

You quickly positioned yourself above him, resting your arms on top of his shoulders, he guided you onto him. He held onto your hips letting out a quiet curse at how tight you were around him. You closed your eyes and put a hand on his chest as you were half way down him. His lips peppered kisses along your cheek. He gave you time to adjust, not wanting to rush you, rubbing circles with his thumbs against your hips.

“Oh, shit,” you breathed when he was finally inside you.  

He started with a slow pace, giving you time to become more and more comfortable, eventually you began to move your hips against him. You held onto the back of the couch, giving him open access to your exposed skin. His mouth latched onto your collarbone fiercely. You swirled your hips in a rhythm guided by him.

“T-Thomas,” one hand reached into his curls, as you bounced up and down him repeatedly. 

This was exactly where he wanted you. He began to thrust up into you causing your breathe to become more erotic. His hands glided down your back before grabbing your ass. Your arms wrapped around his neck. He loved feeling your chest rise and fall against his as you pulled him closer to you. Resting your forehead in the crook of his neck. He felt your walls clench around him.

“R-right there,” you kissed his neck. “Fuck…”

“You gonna cum for me?” he bit your shoulder tenderly sending a buzz through your body.  

He adjusted himself a little, so the next time he thrusted up into you he hit your sweet spot, causing you to dig your nails deeper into his skin as you felt the pressure build inside of you. He took the hint and slammed into you harder.

“Baby…” you panted into his neck, as if warning him you were close.

He hastily added two finger to your clit, rubbing swift circles around your wetness. You let out a gasp, one hand tugging at his hair. You felt his cock twitch inside of you as his thrusts became harder. You desperately tried to hold out. 

“I want you to cum for me, show me- fuck…” He felt himself getting closer as you whispered his name into his skin, with your nails attacking his skin. 

You managed to hold out a little longer until his pace became too much for you and you let go. Practically screaming his name as you did. You collapsed onto him as your body shook. He rode out your orgasm with you until he felt himself reaching a breaking point.

“Cum for me, Daddy.” you gently nibbled on his ear beginning to weakly bounce on his cock again.

That seemed to be enough to send him over the edge as his grip tightened on you and his thrusts became more lazy. He wrapped his arms tightly around your waist as he let out a low moan along with his release. You pressed sloppy kisses along his neck until you reached his lips, drawing him into a passionate kiss, running your hands along his biceps as you both came down from your highs. 

“We’d better clean up,” you broke away from the kiss, still a little breathless.

“Well you insisted on making this mess.” he teased rubbing your back.

You removed yourself from him and began gathering your clothes. He had it easy as he quickly zipped, buttoned and buckled his dress pants. He buttoned up his dress shirt as he watched you place your pile of clothes on his desk, you sifted through them realizing something was missing.

“Hey, do you-”

“Looking for these?” Thomas held a pair of your lace underwear, the same pair he had taken from you earlier. 

You giggled a little, taking them from him and sliding them on. Turning around to face his desk you felt Thomas behind you as he squeezed your ass and kissed your shoulder, running his other hand along your curves. 

“You’re beautiful,” he whispered into your ear. 

You shuddered, sliding your bra back on. He latched it for you, before stepping back and watching you dress yourself. Once you were fully dressed he smiled, wondering how he got so lucky. 

“Well, thank you for doing that for me.” you winked, smiling sinfully before kissing him. 

“Anytime Doll, anytime.”

anonymous asked:

i'm not american so this might be a dumb question but is there a vice presidential line of succession or does maybe the next person in the presidential line move up if there's a vp that dies

No, there isn’t a Vice Presidential line of succession. In the case of a Vice Presidential vacancy, the 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967, allows the President to appoint a new VP who must be confirmed by both the House and the Senate. This has happened twice: in 1973 when President Nixon appointed Gerald Ford to fill the vacancy created when Vice President Spiro Agnew was forced to resign the Vice Presidency, and in 1974 when Ford succeeded Nixon as President and appointed Nelson Rockefeller to fill his vacancy.

A mechanism for filling a vacancy in the Vice Presidency was badly needed. I’ve written about it before, but the Vice Presidency has existed since 1789 and in those 228 years there has been a vacancy in the Vice Presidency for nearly 38 years overall. So, for over 16% of our nation’s history, there hasn’t been anybody in the most important position in the Presidential line of succession. And to point out even more explicitly how crazy that is, think of it this way: every time in American history that a President has died in office or been assassinated, the new President who assumed office didn’t have a Vice President of their own.

This is from an older post on this same subject:

7 Vice Presidents died in office:
•George Clinton died April 20, 1812, leaving the office vacant for 318 days
•Elbridge Gerry died November 23, 1814, leaving the office vacant for 2 years, 101 days.
•William Rufus DeVane King died April 18, 1853, leaving the office vacant for 3 years, 320 days.
•Henry Wilson died on November 22, 1875, leaving the office vacant for 1 year, 102 days
•Thomas A. Hendricks died on November 24, 1885, leaving the office vacant for 3 years, 99 days.
•Garret A. Hobart died on November 21, 1899, leaving the office vacant for 1 year, 103 days.
•James S. Sherman died on October 30, 1912, leaving the office vacant for 125 days.

2 Vice Presidents resigned from office:
•John C. Calhoun resigned on December 28, 1832, leaving the office vacant for 66 days.
•Spiro Agnew resigned on October 10, 1973, leaving the office vacant for 57 days.

9 Vice Presidents succeeded to the Presidency:
•John Tyler succeeded to the White House upon President Harrison’s death on April 4, 1841, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 3 years, 333 days.
•Millard Fillmore succeeded to the White House upon President Taylor’s death on July 9, 1850, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 2 years, 238 days.
•Andrew Johnson succeeded to the White House upon President Lincoln’s death on April 15, 1865, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 3 years, 323 days.
•Chester Arthur succeeded to the White House upon President Garfield’s death on September 19, 1881, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 3 years, 166 days.
•Theodore Roosevelt succeeded to the White House upon President McKinley’s death on September 14, 1901, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 3 years, 171 days.
•Calvin Coolidge succeeded to the White House upon President Harding’s death on August 2, 1923, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 1 year, 214 days.
•Harry Truman succeeded to the White House upon President Roosevelt’s death on April 12, 1945, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 3 years, 283 days.
•Lyndon Johnson succeeded to the White House upon President Kennedy’s death on November 22, 1963, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 1 year, 59 days.
•Gerald Ford succeeded to the White House upon President Nixon’s resignation on August 9, 1974, leaving the Vice Presidency vacant for 132 days.

There was no provision established for filling a vacancy in the Vice Presidency until the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution was ratified in 1967.  The Amendment allows the President to fill a vacancy in the Vice Presidency by appointing a new Vice President who must be confirmed by a majority vote in the House of Representatives and the United States Senate.

Two Vice Presidential vacancies have been filled under the 25th Amendment. Gerald Ford was appointed to the Vice Presidency by President Nixon following Spiro Agnew’s resignation in October 1973 and confirmed by Congress in December.  In August 1974, President Nixon resigned, Gerald Ford succeeded to the Presidency and President Ford appointed Nelson Rockefeller as the new Vice President.  Rockefeller was confirmed as Vice President by Congress on December 19, 1974.

If any of the Vice Presidents who succeeded to the Presidency prior to the ratification of the 25th Amendment had died in office, the first person in the line of succession would have been – depending on the year – an “Officer” chosen by Congress (1789-1792), president pro tempore of the U.S. Senate (1792-1886), Secretary of State (1886-1947), or Speaker of the House of Representatives (1947-present).
