I woke to Jaken's lips on the back of my neck.
"Morning," he said as he kissed me again.
His kisses distracted me up to the point when his hand covered my breast.
I moaned and it sounded more like a question, but not a protest. He stopped kissing me. I looked at him over my left shoulder.
I pressed into him. He groaned. I groaned back, loving the sound.
He pulled away, and as I leaned back, he looked into my eyes as his hand moved down my stomach and into my shorts. He rested his hand on my pelvic bone, and I said a silent pray of thanks for getting that wax the other day. I felt bad about praying for something like that, but then he touched me, and all I could think...
Oh, my God, that feels good.
I moaned and my head fell back. I closed my eyes and his fingers continued to do things to me I didn't know were appropriate for a man who made his living with his hands. He hit one spot with his middle finger and I gripped his hand.
"Please," I whispered.
"Please what?" he said, and his tone made me open my eyes, his breath hot on my cheek.
"Don't stop." He gave me that grin again, kissed my nose, and pushed his fingers deeper between my legs.
"You want to come for me, baby?”
We had our eyes locked on each other, and the way he spoke to me, I felt like I was doing this for him instead of the other way around. A sense of pride swelled in my chest as a sense of something else swelled in my center.
"Yes," I said.
"Okay, come for me." He commanded.
I knew it was his fingers. The blood had rushed to the area he manipulated with them, but I swear I could have come on command even if he wasn't touching me. His voice had that kind of power. My toes curled and my fingers dug into his forearm. A wave of whatever power orgasms were made of rushed over me.
"That's it, baby," he whispered in my ear as I came back to the here and now. He swung a leg over me, as his phone on the nightstand began to buzz. We both looked at it.
"Oh, you're kidding me," I said.
He started laughing as he rolled over and sat on the edge of the bed. He turned off the alarm and turned back to me.
"I'm sorry." He leaned over and kissed me. "I have a tee time. I have to go."
"Fine, leave me here in bed alone." I flopped back. "Again."
"Well, at least this time I finished what I started." He headed into to the bathroom chuckling.
"Then why do I want more?" I asked myself.
Hey Jaken. Thanks for joining me.
When did you realize you had a talent and when did you decide that you could use your talent to make a living?
Wow. You’re going to get right into it. No softball questions like what’s you’re favorite color or what would I do if I wasn’t playing football.
We’ll get to that, but when did you figure out you were good.
To be honest, I don’t think I even appreciated that I was good at football until I got to college. Growing up in Texas, every guy played football. It’s just what you did. I was really close to my high school coach –
He later became you’re father in law?
Uh, yeah. He and my father were supportive and encouraging and guide me to be good at something and in college, I started my second year and started every game ever since.
Where did you're discipline come from?
I think it came from having my son at such a young age. I knew I had to work hard and do what I needed to do in order to make a life for him. I was okay with having a nice life, but I wanted him to have an extraordinary life and to give him that, I needed to be disciplined in football.
What food do you hate giving up when you're in training?
Oh man. Not a food, but a drink. Jameson. I love it, but I don’t drink it during the season. My girl friend turned me on to Jameson with a pickle back and swears it prevents hang overs, but I still wouldn’t risk it during the season.
You’re girlfriend drinks Jameson?
Yeah, she’s an exceptional woman.
Any strange superstitions or pregame rituals you perform before you play a game?
Since my rookie season, Michael and I have rituals that have evolved over the years. We have to walk on the field together for warm up and intros. We run the field together during warm ups and have to be in step. We play catch during the opening kick off, stuff that like.
No lucky underwear?
No. Blushes from ear to ear.
What's you hype music?
My girlfriend, Emma, sends me a new song every week. Like for the Super Bowl, she sent me Fighter by Gym Class Heroes.
The songs mostly lean towards hip hop?
No, for the NFC Championship game, it was that song from Rocky IV. (Jaken Sings) Hearts on fire, strong desire. –Emma sitting in the back ground shaking her head and laughing.
Let's get back to some serious stuff. Would you let your son play football?
This is the hot topic isn’t it. I get it. I would love it if my son became a regular guy with a regular job where he didn’t get beat up every week, but I also know the passion I have for the game and would rather my son find something that evokes the same passion for him. If that’s football, then I am excited for him.
How do you find time be a father and a boyfriend and an NFL Quarterback?
He turns back to look at Emma and then back at me.
It’s hard. Emma has been a fan of mine even before we got together. She is super supportive and it’s important for me to be just as supportive of her. Plus, she and my son get along so well, we enjoy spending time together.
Yeah, but you need some time alone.
We find time.
Ok, since I’m not going to get anymore then that, let’s do some quick hits.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Mixes better with stuff.
Beach or Mountains?
Emma in a bikini – hot.
Where I meet my girl for the last time.
Read or watch TV?
I’ve seen the process and respect the heck out of it.
If you weren’t a football player, what would you be doing?
It an awesome superpower to have, being able to teach someone something.
Competition – two teams, one goal, to win and look hot doing it.
The Physiques – have you seen Colin Kaepernick (49er’s Quarterback) or JJ Watt (Texans Defensive Lineman). If not, Google them. Their bodies are unbelievable. So hot!!!
The Hits – they can be loud and scary and make you cringe, but I love a good hit. Especially when both players bounce back up like, you didn’t hurt me.
The Drama on and off the field – two teammates sleeping with the same woman; a player is more of a father to his girlfriend's son then the kids real father; a girl trying to find love while living down the reputation of sleeping with every running back in the league – Sounds like the premise of a great romance novels, these are real life stories and play out on and off the field.
Watching Talent – I am a big fan of watching talented people practicing and performing up to their talent level. I know I work hard at what I do and am motivated to watching other who have a passion for something do the same.
The Production - on TV and in person – Going to an NFL or College game is an entertaining production. They put on a show from the moment you walk into the stadium until you leave. You get to see the sights and sounds and smells of the game and get caught up on the excitement. If you aren’t a fan before you see a game, you will be when you leave. On television, you get to see it all. The hits, the action, the speed of the game, the sweat dripping off hot gorgeous bodies and muscles convulsing in slow motion. And, all of this in HD.
Spend time with my family – Football brought my family together. When I was younger, our little Texas town stomped down for Friday Night Football – think Friday Night Lights. My father worked in the sports industry and I got to go to professional games since I was a kid. Even now, during the season, my family comes together on Sunday’s to watch the Cowboys. We even have to sit in the same seats every game if they are winning. With our crazy busy schedules, it’s the one time all week where we hangout together and bond.
