'Umm, yeah. I'll do that,' Jack replied, longing for a moment of truth and to bypass this tedious work. He pulled ut a piece of notebook paper, wrote down all of the themes and grouped the characters up to what themes they were involved in. He was done in a short amount of time. Jack silently placed the paper on Mr. Shane's desk for him to check and go over.
While Jack wrote Erik pretended as though he wasn't watching the student. He looked at his notes and computer only glancing at Jack from time to time even though he was secretly watching his student a lot more. "All done?" Mr. Shane reached and took the paper from his student, fingers brushing against Jack's hand and lingering for a few seconds longer than necessary before retreiving the list.
Jack blushed very slightly at the contact between his hand and Mr. Shane's. It make sparks ignite in his lower stomach. Dear god.... I need to be careful.... It took him a moment to realise he was holding his reath. He let it go slowly, and started to breathe normally. 'Yeah. It was too easy.'
A flirty smirk actually crept up on Mr. Shane's lips when he read over the paper. "I suppose it was. Now write all the characters down and put all the themes that apply to them under them from the list." he instructed. The teacher put the paper back in front of Jack and then rested a hand on the male's shoulder. It was light and comforting and not at all violent. Erik couldn't help himself; he wanted to touch Jack but knew it needed to be friendly like this.
Jack hung his head, forcing his hair to block out his face. He was only doing this to hide his pinkened face. He had no idea as to how Mr. Shane would react to Jack's reality.
((Bumping this up one more time for good luck. :) ))
"Hey are you okay?" Erik tilted his head to try and get a better look at his student's face. He removed his hand from Jack's shoulder when he got the indication that Jack didn't like it.
Jack hesitated foe a moment. 'No,' he replied softly, unthreateningly. 'I'm not, actually, Mr. Shane,' he tried to make the words mean what he wanted them to.
The teacher stared at Jack's pink face and had to smile. He wasn't completely sure if it was his doing but something told Erik that it was a good reaction. He reached his hand to Jack's face and caressed is cheek very lightly. "Then tell me what's wrong Jack." the words he said were really simple but they held lots of depth and unsaid meaning.
Jack blushed at the touch, but was very pleased by it. 'I... don't know how to say it.... But I'm... sure you know,' he murmured back to Erik.
Seeing Jack blush even more under his touch made Erik smile. "I suppose I do." Without giving it a second thought he leaned in very slowly to give his student time to pull away and brushed his lips against the others very lightly to test the waters.
He hesitated at first, but Jack kissed Erik back hungrily after a moment. He was finally getting what he wanted.
The hunger from Jack's lips startled Erik for a moment. He liked it though and found himself rotating his chair to face the student. Erik's hand stayed on Jack's cheek while their lips embraced each other and he pushed his chair even closer to Jack's.
JAck could feel his heart racing like no tomorrow. It felt good. All too right. He pressed himself against Erik, his arms managing to snake themslves around his waist.
When Jack moved to get closer to Erik he cut the kiss off with a sigh. "I probably shouldn't have done that..." he whispered though he didn't make any action to try and get away from Jack. Instead he kept their chairs very close, hand to Jack's cheek while he tried to meet Jack's eyes.
Jack pulled back and looked up to Erik's face. 'I'm not sorry,' he muttered. 'And I never will be.' He blushed as he met Erik's eyes for more than a few seconds.
Erik sighed, resting his forehead against Jack's forehead for the time being. "You're my student Jack... My very attractive student." he breathed out as if he were having a difficult time not attacking Jack with kisses and gropes. He shook his head to try and clear it, sitting back.
Jack looked away for a moment, trying to make sense of things. 'No one would know. I don't see why not. I graduate soon anyway,' he remarked softly, yearning.
Erik bit his bottom lip. It felt weird... Like he'd be taking advantage of his student. But at the same time it was exciting and Erik longed to have someone important in his life. "We'll have to be extremely careful until next school year... If we even make it public in the summer I could get fired." he said in a very quiet rushed voice.
