A/N: Well readers I have to say this has been a fun story to write. What started as a co-written story, and contest entry for the "Like Totally 80's Contest" turned out to be much longer than the contest entry allowed and a story I finished myself. I added, changed and subtracted material and changed the direction several times. I hope you have all enjoyed reading this. As always your review is appreciated. Love you all! XO
The evening continued around us. Guests were celebrating, toasts and speeches were made but if you'd asked me I wouldn't be able to recall any of it. Because I only had eyes for Edward.
We visited with family and friends, touching each other in one way or another for the rest of the night. Thankfully no one put us in the uncomfortable spot of inquiring. I did notice, however, that Edward was avoiding his parents like the plague.
As the DJ announced the last song of the evening and we joined others on the dance floor once more as the music played. His arms pulled me close and I wrapped my hands behind his neck pulling his lips to my own.
His warm, wet mouth met mine in a soft kiss. My head was dizzy with a need to have him closer. I wiggled my body so I was tight against his. Suddenly I felt him grow hard in between us. I pulled my lips away from his and smirked at him, raising my eyebrows.
"I'm sorry, but I can't help it, Bella." He whispered against my cheek.
I shook my head and smiled up at him. "I don't mind."
The music ended and I noticed most everyone had already left. Jacob and Renesmee were across the room toward the head table talking with friends and I noticed my Dad and Edwards parents were talking on the opposite side of the room. Esme had her purse in her hand and her coat draped over her arm, ready to leave. She tilted her head and waved goodbye to us, and lead Carlisle out the door. Right behind them my Dad nodded a curt goodbye as well and exited the ballroom.
I cast a questioning look at Edward who shrugged. "Whatever," he beamed down at me. I put my arms around his neck one more time and pulled him into a hug. His full erection was still evident as our bodies pressed closer. "Would it be too presumptuous of me to invite you to join me upstairs in my room?" His smile was making me wet with anticipation.
I took a deep breath. "I don't think that's a good idea," I teased.
His face fell briefly before I continued. "I want you to come home with me."
He looked at me hopefully. "Home?"
"Yes, Edward. Our home."
Our conversation was interrupted with 'Nes walked up and put her arms around my neck. She pulled the three of us into a group hug and had tears in her eyes when we separated.
Edward's arms lingered around our daughter a moment longer than mine. "Please don't cry 'Nes." He ran his hand along her cheek, brushing a tear away.
"Happy tears, Dad." She wiped her cheeks herself and reached for Jake who was looking intensely uncomfortable. She took Jake's hand assuredly. "We just wanted to tell you goodnight before we went to our room. I'll see you tomorrow, Mom." She reminded me that we had plans to go to the bridal boutique to look at mother-of-the-bride dresses the following day.
"You'll see us both tomorrow." Edward's eyebrows raised and our daughter laughed.
"Actually, would you mind doing me a favor, Jacob?" Our son-in-law-to-be nodded. "Would you drive Bella's car to her house tomorrow?"
"Absolutely," he answered and Edward handed him my keys.
We said goodnight to the two of them and walked out of the ballroom. Jake and 'Nes headed toward the elevator and Edward and I made our way through the lobby toward the parking garage. As we approached Edward's car I was suddenly nervous. It had been months since we had been together intimately. He slid his hand to the small of my back as he unlocked his passenger door for me.
As his hand moved away from my back, I realized how much I longed for his touch. He sat into the driver's side and started the car, backing out of the parking spot. Once he shifted gears and started moving forward, he took my hand in his.
"I don't want to let go of you." He explained, his eyes saying much more than his words.
"I was thinking the same thing." I said.
I was in a daze of happiness as he drove us, without speaking through the city traffic and onto the highway, taking our exit and pulling into the driveway before I let go of his hand. I reached inside my purse, realizing Edward had handed my keys to Jacob.
I turned to him and he grinned at me. "I have mine…You haven't changed the locks, I assume?"
I shook my head and he unlocked the door, holding it open for me. I turned the light on as I stepped inside, taking a moment to drop my purse and coat by the door. I looked up for a second and met Edward's gaze. The intensity there took my breath away. I closed my eyes for a second and took a slow, deep breath. Then I reached my hand out for his. "Come upstairs with me?"
He slid his hand into mine. "Gladly," he smiled back at me.
I walked us into the bedroom and pulled him into my arms. I barely got my hands around his neck when his mouth joined mine in a lustful, passionate kiss. Our tongues intertwined gently at first. Eventually I opened my mouth wider as he slid his deeper into my mouth, uttering a groan that made me lose my breath. He pulled his face away from mine and looked down at me adoringly. "I love you, Bella."
Deciding it was time to get this show on the road I stepped back away from him slightly. I made eye contact before turning my back away from him and reaching up to slide the zipper of my dress down. "I love you too," I whispered. My face felt flushed as I slid my arms out of my dress and let it fall to the floor in a slightly seductive striptease.
I heard him groan again and before I could spin back around to face him I felt his hands on my shoulders. I felt his lips touch my skin as he caressed me with his moist mouth from my earlobe to the tip of my shoulder. My skin erupted in goose bumps as desire spread from where his lips touched me to my now damp center.
I tried to turn to face him again but his arms wrapped around me and he pulled my back closer to his chest, pressing his groin into my hips, reminding me I wasn't the only one aroused.
His hands caressed over the top of my bra and I relaxed my back into his chest. I leaned my head against his shoulder as he ran his hands over my hardened peaks. He took his time, stroking slowly and seductively. I reached my hand behind me, finding his hardness and stroking him with the palm of my hand. His breathing became erratic and the second I reached for his zipper he spun me around to face him.
"I want you so badly, Bella. No measure of time with you will be long enough, but I promise I will make up every second I missed with you. I can't thank you enough for giving me a second chance…"
I gripped him tighter through his suit pants and licked my tongue lightly over his top and bottom lips. "Just shut up and make love to me, Edward."
He winked and smirked down at me, "as you wish."
The next few moments went by in a blur as we both helped each other strip our clothes off. I felt him lift me into his arms and slide me onto the bed. He laid us both on our sides and resumed stroking his hands over my skin. The months apart had given us both a renewed longing for each other. We took time exploring each other's bodies; each using our fingers, hands and mouths to bring intense pleasure to the other.
My desire reached a pinnacle and I begged him to enter me. As always, he fulfilled my every need; our joining was powerful, passionate, and affectionate all wrapped up into one climactic ending. Afterwards we lay wrapped around each other; dampness covering our skin, spent, and totally in love.
The sun was shining through the window when I opened my eyes. I could feel Bella's head on my chest. She was sleeping peacefully with my arm draped over her shoulders. I smiled inwardly as I remembered our incredible reunion. The deep devotion I had for Bella had only increased as she returned every bit of affection I showed her. She had pledged her undying love for me in the throes of passion and I willingly returned the sentiment.
Within minutes she began to stir beside me. I reached down and lifted her face to mine, kissing her lips gently. "Mmm, that feels wonderful and I want to stay here with you, but I need to use the bathroom." I reluctantly let her go and gazed at her sexy body as she walked into the adjoining bathroom.
After a few moments I heard the water running, and the sound of her brushing her teeth. "Edward, I'm going to hop into the shower and get ready for my shopping trip with 'Nes."
I crawled out of bed and walked into the bathroom as she was climbing into the shower. "What time is she picking you up?"
"Noon," she answered.
"So I was thinking I should probably go back to my parent's house and pick up some of my things while you're gone…" I spoke hesitantly, unsure if that was the right step to take next.
Bella laughed joyously "Sounds good. Boy, I wonder how your father's going to react."
I shrugged, "Doesn't matter. It's our relationship, not theirs. Speaking of reactions, when do you plan to call your father?"
She peeked around the shower curtain at me. "He was really speaking his mind to you last night, wasn't he?" I nodded at her. "I'm sorry about that."
"Bella, I don't care what our parents think. You're my wife and I couldn't be happier now. I know I screwed up for years, but I fully intend to do everything in my power to prove myself to you now. I'm sorry for so many things, and your dad was only trying to remind me what an ass I had been."
"Still, he had no right to say those things to you. Obviously he was on a tirade, and I do admit I probably vented to him more than I should have after we separated."
"He didn't say anything that wasn't true. I definitely know that what he said about wanting us to have more children was true. My parents would agree that we should have had at least one more."
Bella stepped out of the shower and lifted her towel from the hook beside where I was standing. "Yeah well that's water under the bridge." She ran her fingers along my face lovingly. Her tone was gracious I realized how lucky I was to have such a forgiving woman.
She leaned closer and gave me a soft kiss on the lips and suddenly I felt her body tense.
I opened my eyes, "What's wrong Bella?"
Her face appeared anxious and she shook her head confusedly. "I'm just realizing that we made love last night without any protection."
I chuckled at her, "We both have only ever had sex with each other, Bella. There's no need for …" My voice trailed off before I realized that maybe there was a chance that while we were separated, Bella had sex with another man. A tight knot formed in the pit of my stomach as I pondered the possibility before continuing. "Umm, if you did…do that…I wouldn't blame you…I mean, I still love you anyway." I stammered.
She shook her head and bit her lip nervously. "Of course I didn't have sex with anyone else, Edward."
Oh thank God!
"Well I definitely didn't have sex with anyone else. So what could possibly be wrong?"
She took a deep breath. "I stopped taking my birth control pills months ago. There was no need since we weren't together…"
Realization dawned on me. Since Renesmee's birth, we had always used birth control so we didn't have another unwanted pregnancy. Being teenagers and pregnant had definitely made us careful adults. "I don't think we have anything to worry about, do you?"
She shrugged skeptically, not meeting my gaze. "There's a distinct possibility that I'm ovulating right now."
I pulled her into my arms. "Well there is nothing we can do about it now. We'll have to wait and see. I am sure we're fine, though. I'll buy some condoms later today just to be sure we're protected while we wait…" I could feel her lean into me and realized she still wasn't relaxed.
Her face looked up at me and she opened and closed her mouth a couple of times. "Bella, are you trying to tell me that you would like to be pregnant. Do you…want to try to have a baby?" I wasn't sure I was convinced this was a good idea but if I was going to prove my devotion to her.
My mouth gaped open as I looked at her face as she nodded.
"Yes," she replied.
Closing A/N: So here it is...We Start Rememberin' When was originally supposed to end with Bella and Edward's reuniting at the engagement party. But I thought you all deserved one more lemon. Hope you liked it.
The pregnancy idea came to me a while back and I decided to go with it. IF you would like to know more I will consider writing an epilogue...but this story hasn't gotten the kind of response my other story has so I wouldn't want to devote the time to any additional writing if there wasn't any need.
If you feel this story is wrapped up tight enough for you, then let me know. Likewise, if you feel you would like to know more, then let me know. If there is support enough to continue then I will write an epilogue to take the story "full circle".
I have two people to thank in regards to this story:
My friend and partner in crime, karencullenn2007. Karen, you had the original idea for this story, you picked the song that I listened to hundreds of times to get the inspiration I needed to start writing. I can't thank you enough for suggesting this in a time when I would have died from boredom had I not had something to keep my mind occupied.
The second person I need to thank is a relatively new reader, who also happens to be the love of my life. Without the connection of this story, and the spark of interest it brought about, I wonder whether we would have made the connection we have now. My life has changed because of you! Thank you for loving me! XOXOXOXOXO
