Chapter 114 – You Win


"Bella, wow. You look…" I could actually feel my eyes burn with tears as I looked at my fiancée. Her makeup was done up and her hair looked beautiful. "I love it, baby. You're stunning."

She smiled at me. Absolutely beamed up at my face. "Thank you. The stylist put it up for me in a wedding style. Oh, Edward. It was beautiful."

"I believe it," I said, running my fingers over her satiny hair. "Did you get pictures?"

"Yes. But, you can't see them. It's cheating."

I leaned in and kissed her lips. "I love you so much."

She couldn't seem to stop smiling. I was so happy that she was happy. The tears over the phone had hurt. I hated when my girl was sad. Especially when I'd been causing her so much grief lately as it was.

"I love you. The house smells like food," she said as she kicked off her shoes at the front door beside the mountain of shopping bags I'd just carried in for her from my mom's car. "Did you order steak?"

I laughed and scooped her up in my arms. "I made steak."

"No way."

I leaned down and nipped at her neck and then shoulder. "Yes way."

"You keep getting sexier. I'm so going to marry you before you get away."

"I'm not going anywhere." I set her down at the dining room table, which I'd manage to set when I got home from my mom's. "Relax. Let me get your dinner."

"Edward. Thank you," she called as I walked into the kitchen to plate our meal. "You don't have to spoil me so much. How's your face?"

I smiled at her smile when she saw the seared steak, buttered green beans and fried potatoes. "I feel great, baby. Stop worrying." I set her plate down and then sat beside her. "Eat."

She laughed and rubbed my thigh. "This looks amazing."

"The beans are from a can. The potatoes were frozen. But, the steak I cooked on the stove." I figured it didn't hurt to be honest. She was smart. She would have figured it out, anyway.

Bella's lips on my cheek was all the thanks I needed. "I'm so proud of you. I feel really spoiled."

"Like I said, you deserve it."

"I'm sorry I called and freaked out."

"No," I said, stopping her before she could go on. "I love that about us. You were upset and you turned to me. That means a lot to me, Bella."

She rubbed my shoulder. "I love you."

"I'm forever grateful."

She hummed as she took a bite of her steak. "Oh, Edward. That is amazing. So moist and tender. What's your secret?"

"I made it with love?"

She laughed and I leaned over to kiss her again before I started eating. "So, handsome. What were you up to today?"

I shook my head. "You're not getting it out of me?"

"You waxed your chest?"


"Your back?"

I laughed. "I don't have a hairy back."

"I know. I'm teasing. Did you wax your –"

"Bella," I laughed. God this girl made me feel amazing. "No waxing."

"Okay. I just thought that since it had to do with you being a bridezilla and all…"

"Groomzilla. And no. It had nothing to do with this body."

"Good. I love this body." She let her hands roam over my chest.

"I want you to enjoy your meal."

"I am."

"Okay. Stop turning me on or I'll carry you upstairs and we'll skip right to dessert."

She laughed as she ate another bite of steak. "Mm."

"Bella," I warned.

We laughed together and I was so happy. This was my life. "What are you smiling about?"

"I missed you today, so I'm trying to soak you up."

"Aw. Should we just go to bed early, tonight?" she asked.

"No. I have a surprise for you, lover. But, definitely after dessert."

So we ate and, as promised, I carried my beautiful girl up the stairs to our bedroom. "Candles," she breathed as I set her down on the bed. "You really went all out, tonight."

I pulled off my t-shirt and climbed in beside her. "I want the focus back on you, Bella. I will never be able to apologize enough for this," I said, pointing to my jaw, "and all of the related drama."

She straddled my thighs and leaned down to kiss me. She sat up, giving me a killer view of her cleavage. "Don't worry about it, Edward. I want you to be happy. It's the only way I can be happy."

"I am, baby. I'm so happy."

"Okay, good. We'll have dessert," she said with a giggle, "then, I'll ice your bruise and then you can give me my surprise. Sound good?"

I smiled after one more peek down her top. "Deal."

"You do know I can tell when you look down my shirt, right?"

I laughed. "Yup."

Bella smiled as she rocked over my dick, making me forget about everything, but the heat of her body. I'd missed her so damn much today. She stopped. "Wait. Should I give you a fashion show?"

I held her hips in my hands and moved her, again. "Don't stop. And yeah. We'll do a fashion show, but I need you right now."

She tugged my chest hair and then leaned in to bite my nipples. "Damn. Bella. Take off your pants."

She giggled. "Now who doesn't like foreplay?"

"You caught me. I'm guilty as sin. Take off your pants."

"Um. I think I'll take off your pants."

"Why don't we compromise and both take off our pants?"

She threw her head back and laughed at me. It was cute, but I took the opportunity to unbutton her blouse. She'd been gone all day. I was probably going to have to learn to handle that once Bella started student teaching next semester and she wouldn't be at the college campus with me.

But for right now, I wanted nothing more than to be with her twenty four hours a day.

"You're so freaking hot, baby," I said, tugging the cups of her bra down so I could see her pretty pink nipples. She got to bite mine. I wanted to return that favor. And then some.

I sat up, knocked her backwards onto the bed and climbed over her. She laughed and her breast jiggled. I captured one nipple between my lips and sucked. The way she moaned my name and yanked on my hair just made me suck harder, squeeze her hips tighter and rock against her heat even faster.

I could feel her trembling beneath me and I knew it wouldn't take her long to let go for me. We hadn't made love since the night before and as much of a sex maniac as I was, I knew Bella. And when it had been a while since her last orgasm, it didn't take much for her to come the first time. And at the rate I missed her today, she would be coming again and again and again. And maybe one more time after that.

She squealed loudly when she let go. So loud, I'm sure the neighbors could figure out what we were up to. I loved it.

I met her eyes so I could give her my cockiest smirk. "I'm going to take your pants off, now," I whispered as I unclasped her bra and freed her arms and boobs.

She laughed and it was sexy because she was completely out breath. "Fine. You win."

"Oh, Bella, Bella," I said, pinching her swollen peaks. "You're the one that's about to win."
