Summary: Set after Season 6. This is rated R/NC-17. This is my Secret Santa present to Sheabear, who requested "smut and a happy ending."
It was late when Chloe got home. She found Morris asleep on the sofa, sighing, she grabbed the afghan from the chair and covered him up with it. Trudging upstairs, she opened her son's bedroom door. He was sound asleep, holding the bear that Jack had given him when he was born. Unable to stop herself, she walked into Scott's room and stood next to bed. Watching him sleep, she could see Jack in him. Sighing, she left his room and went to hers.
Sleep didn't come to her until the wee hours of the morning; her mind wrestling with the decision that she had known was coming. When she finally fell into a restless sleep, her thoughts were the night she spent with Jack and how it had felt to be naked, underneath Jack with his hands and mouth on her body. Even in her sleep, her body remembered and wanted more.
It was the Friday before Christmas Eve and Chloe made a couple stops before going in to work. That afternoon, she phoned Morris to tell him that she would be working late and not to wait up for her, the lie slipping easily from her lips. She slipped the key into the lock like she had earlier that morning, only more quietly this time. She knew that he would be back from Bill and Karen's before eleven p.m. and it was already almost ten o'clock, so didn't have much time. Opening the door carefully, she walked inside and carefully closed the door behind her so that it wouldn't slam.
Walking over to the Christmas tree that she had brought earlier and decorated, she slipped the brightly wrapped packages underneath it. Then she went into the kitchen and opened the bottle of wine, pouring herself a glass to help steady her nerves. After drinking two glasses of wine, she took her shoes off, setting them underneath the dining room table.
Before she could talk herself out of it, she began walking towards Jack's bedroom. Light softly filtered in from the outside, so she didn't need to turn on any lights. Inside his bedroom, it was darker. Walking up next to his bed, she slowly started unbuttoning her shirt, one button at time, her shaking hands making the task more difficult than normal.
"Rip it Chloe." A dark, velvet voice instructed her from the bed.
"AH!" Chloe squealed as she turned, glaring at the bed. "Jack! What…?"
Chuckling, Jack asked softly. "You didn't think I would be in my own bed?"
"No!" Chloe blurted. "I mean you are suppose to be at the Buchanan's having dinner."
Chuckling again, Jack rose out of the bed to stand in front of Chloe. "And miss this? Not a chance O'Brian. Now rip the damn shirt, or I will."
Realizing that she now had a fully, naked Jack Bauer standing in front of her, Chloe backed up until she hit the wall.
"This wasn't…you…I" She stammered.
"What's the matter, Chloe?" Jack asked softly. "Am I making you nervous?"
Chloe could only nod in response.
Smirking at her, Jack replied. "Okay, how about you continue undressing and I will sit down on the bed. How's that?"
"O…okay." Chloe muttered.
Jack sat back down on the bed. His eyes fixed on Chloe, who nervously continued opening her shirt, on button at a time. He had to control the urge to press her against the wall and rip the damn thing himself.
After dropping her shirt on the floor, she looked into Jack's eyes. What she saw there made her gasp and her knees wobble a bit. Keeping her eyes on him, she took her hair out of the ponytail, letting the long tresses fall down around her face. Then she took a deep breath and tried to unbutton her jeans, but shaky fingers made it almost impossible. Growling, she looked down at her jeans, trying again to undo the button.
Trying not to laugh, Jack said. "Need some help, Chloe?"
Blowing her hair out of her eyes, she looked up at him and nodded.
Crooking his finger, he said come here.
On wobbly legs, she walked in between Jack's legs.
As he unbuttoned her jeans and slid the zipper down, he said. "I figured I needed to take some time to think about things before contacting you."
Bracing her hands on Jack's shoulders, Chloe replied breathlessly as he slid her jeans and panties down her legs. "I couldn't wait. I had to find out if it was just a one time thing or was it something more?"
"Step out, baby." Jack instructed her. Tossing her jeans, he grabbed her waist and pulled her closer. "Do you really believe that it was a one time thing, Chloe?"
Looking into his blue eyes, she gasped. "Yes…no, I mean I don't want it to be. I've loved you for so long."
"I love you too Chloe. I've loved you for a long time. You're the best thing in my life. You do know that by coming here tonight, there is no going back. You're mine and I am not letting you go.
"Yes, I know." Chloe whispered. "I want to be yours and I want you to be mine, forever."
Smiling, Jack said. "Good. Now finish undressing."
Chloe rolled her eyes and reached for the front clasp of her bra. Unhooking it, slowly slid her bra off her shoulders, letting it drop to the floor.
"Beautiful" Jack whispered as Chloe climbed onto his lap. Clasping Jack's head between her hands she lowered her lips to his and kissed him. The kiss grew more passionate as Jack slanted his head and deepened the kiss.
Rolling Chloe onto her back, Jack grabbed both of her hands in one of his, holding them above her head as he let his eyes take in every beautiful inch of her body.
"Touch me, Jack" Chloe moaned.
"Oh I will." Jack said. "Just let me look at you first."
Touching his lips to hers again in a bruising kiss. "What do you want Chloe?"
"Make me come with your fingers, Jack." Chloe groaned.
Smiling at her, he slipped a finger inside her moist folds.
He began slowly working his fingers inside her, bringing her slowly to the edge, yet not quite giving her the touch she craved, until her hips were rising up to meet his hand and she was begging. Then she was tumbling as the strong waves of her orgasm hit her.
Before she came completely back down, Jack slid inside her and stilled. Bringing his mouth back to hers, he crushed her lips in a passionate kiss as she grabbed both of her hands again and held them above her head. Only when Chloe was begging him, did he begin to move slowly inside her, pulling almost all the way out before thrusting deeply inside her. It was slow and long, bringing tears to her eyes.
One year later
It was Christmas Eve and Jack was trying to get home before the sleet froze all the roads. Pulling up into the driveway, he smiled as he looked at his home that was lit up with multi-colored lights and a wreath on the door.
Taking the garage door opener, he opened the garage and took out his surprise for Scott. After fixing that up, he walked into the house. The smell of hot chocolate and ham coming from the kitchen greeted him.
Chloe was in the kitchen on the phone when he walked into the doorway. He stopped to watch her. She hung up the phone when she finished.
"Something smells good." Jack said softly.
"Jack! You're home." Chloe squealed in delight. "That was Chase. He and Kim are about twenty minutes from the house."
Chloe reached up and kissed Jack. Smiling she swatted him playfully on the butt, "If you want to clean up before they get here, you better get a move on Bauer."
Chuckling, Jack kissed her again and replied. "Yes, ma'am, Mrs. Bauer."
She waited until she heard water running in the bathroom before placing festive Christmas envelope that read "To Jack" on the bed where he would see it.
Walking out the shower, Jack noticed the envelope on the bed. Sitting down, he picked it up and opened it. Inside, he found a sonogram picture of a twelve week old fetus. He felt his heart swell and tears form in his eyes.
"Merry Christmas, Jack." Chloe said softly from the doorway of the bedroom.
"Are you? How far along?" Jack stuttered.
Smiling, Chloe said. "I take it you are happy with your present?"
Jack got off the bed and lifted Chloe up in his arms.
Laughing, Chloe said. "Jack, you're wet!"
"Don't care. We're having a baby!" Jack said with a growl as he kissed her firmly as he backed her up against the wall.
Pulling back from the kiss, Chloe smiled at him. "Well you did help you know?"
Jack grinned before kissing her again.
Wriggling loose, Chloe muttered, "Jack, stop it, we don't have time for this."
"Mom, Dad! Aunt Kim and Uncle Chase are here!" Scott shouted from the front door.
Growling, Jack set Chloe down. "We'll pick this up later, baby."
"Get dressed Bauer!" Chloe ordered with a grin.
As Chloe went to great her stepdaughter and family, she felt the happiest she had felt in a long time.
