AN: Hellooo new chapter drop!
Does anyone else play this like a movie while they read it? I do it while I write it. Helps me express the feeling much better.
Enjoy and Review!
I opened my eyes slowly. I felt something spiky on my forehead, a hand in my hair, slow ragged breathing. I was nestled in the crook of his neck, my hand tucked to my side between us.
He was in a deep sleep. I moved a little and he didn't stir. I lifted my head slightly to look at the time on the clock by the night stand.
5 am. Ugh. Too early.
I rubbed my eyes and cleared my vision and looked at him in the dark. He looked so at peace. His injured arm rested on his chest. His other arm was around me with his hand resting in my hair. His chin was near my forehead and the hair from his stubble tickled me.
But none of that shocked me as much as seeing him, shirtless, in bed, with me.
I looked at the lines of his body, under his injured arm, I could see the definitions of his abs. His chest was wide, his collar bone popped and the muscle on his shoulder was ripped.
I felt the warmth radiate off of him, my heart beat faster. I was scared of being like this with him, so vulnerable if he woke up and looked at me.
I thought back to the day, replaying everything I said to him. I pulled myself up higher on the pillow so that I faced him directly.
He stirred a little. I looked at his face, studied it. The contours of his cheek bones, the dips under his eyes, the sharpness of his nose, the scar near his lips.
I lightly touched it. Tested to see if he would react or stir some more. But he didn't.
His hair fell onto his eyes, I pushed the tiny strands away. He moved a bit. I pretended to be asleep by closing my eyes.
But when I reopened them, I met his gaze. He stared at me, he eyes shifted from one eye to the other of mine. His face looked relaxed and his lips broke out into a small smile.
I felt a frown on my face and Edward smoothened it out with his injured hand.
I held his injured hand and left it to rest between us. Careful not to touch it.
"You're so beautiful" he whispered, his voice low and thick with sleep.
"You're dreaming" I mocked even though my insides felt like fire and my heart swelled up.
"If I am, don't ever wake me up" he said, his arm making it to my waist. He pulled me closer to him, our faces inches apart, his nose almost touching mine.
"Why were you ignoring me" I asked in a soft whisper in the dark as Edward's eyes closed.
"I'm distracting you apparently , Mr Rogers doesn't like that I'm distracting his favorite student. He thinks I'm just using you, like I've done with every other girl" he whispered, eyes still closed "he asked me to keep my distance from you, so I did, just in front of him"
"And are you?..." I paused "...using me?" I asked letting the second part out in the lowest whisper I can manage.
Edward's eyes shot open and his forehead creased.
"What do you think?" He asked leaning a bit back so he can see my whole face.
I looked at him, his eyes concerned at my response.
I reached forward, my hand resting on his neck and my fingers tangled in his hair. I pull myself closer to him, my head under his chin, his lips in my hair.
Edward's arm tightened on me. He turned completely to my side and pulled me into his chest.
"If you are, I'd kick your ass" I mumble into his chest and hear him chuckle softly.
He sighed "Swan?"
"You made me a little mad yesterday.." Edward said softly and I looked up at him.
"The drinking?" I asked and he nodded.
"I don't want to come across as possessive or overprotective, but when you do reckless things like this, you worry me. And I'm not the best at really expressing it.." Edward sighed
"I'm sorry, I just wanted to have a little fun" I said and he looked at me.
"I wish you would have asked me instead of needing to ask Mike Newton to get you your first drink" Edward said
"You were ignoring me" I retorted.
"I'm sorry too" Edward said dropping a kiss on my forehead. I sighed into him.
"It's okay, just next time, talk to me. Tell me whats going on" I say and Edward agrees.
"Bella" Edward says rolling on top of me. He made sure part of his weight was on me and part was resting on his one arm next to my head.
I looked up at him and gulped.
"I want you.." he kissed my nose "...to be my girlfriend" he completed and I smiled, my heart doing backflips in my ribcage.
"You sure you want to make it official? There's still a chance to run away" I say and he grins.
He searched my eyes and lightly touches my cheek with his injured hand.
"I'm sure" he said affirmatively.
I tapped my chin with my finger to pretend like I'm thinking. Edward groaned and rolled his eyes.
"Don't make me ask again" he almost growled and leaned his face closer to mine.
I challenged him.
I looked into his eyes, raising an eyebrow.
"Ask me again" I said smirking
He gave me a stubborn look and shook his head.
"Ask me" I repeated, my voice lower and more serious. Edward got off me and sat up against the headboard. I got up myself and sat next to him.
"God you're stubborn" I said gathering my hair together into a better put together bun.
"I'm stubborn? You're the one who doesn't want to be my girlfriend" Edward shrugged.
"I never said no" I turned to look at him.
"You didn't say yes either" he looked back at me.
It was my turn to roll my eyes. I grabbed my jacket near the foot of the bed and wore it. I threw Edward's key card at him.
"Can I have my key now?" I asked and he smirked.
"It's in your bag, it was always in your bag" he said and I reached for my bag and opened it to find the key card there.
"Then...oh you slipped yours into my pocket. I must have been so tired I didn't even check" I said.
Edward's eyebrow raised "Or you wanted to stay in my room" he smirked.
I shot him a glare and stuck my tongue out to him.
"I'm going, I'll see you at breakfast" I say grabbing my things and heading towards the door.
"Swan, you really want to walk into your room to disturb Alice and Jasper in their peaceful slumber?"
I walked back and dropped my bag and looked at the time. Just half an hour passed by.
"Come back to bed" Edward said stretching his arm towards me. His muscle flexed, his hair was disheveled and his eyes.
His goddamn eyes were so hard to look away from.
I stood my ground and crossed my arms over my chest.
"Ask me" I said and Edward sighed getting off the bed. He was wearing his pjs with a bit of his boxers peeking out. He had a defined V-line and his abs were structured and rock hard.
This boy had no ounce of fat on his body.
He walked over to me and wrapped his one arm around my waist pulling me to him.
"Isabella Swan, you're a constant pain in my ass, you challenge me like no one else dares to, you push me to my limits, you make me frustrated. And at the same time you're the only one I want to talk to, the only one I want to share things with, the only one I want to be with. So please, would you do me the honor of being my girlfriend?" Edward leaned in closer "I'll go insane if you say no" he whispered.
I wrapped my arm around his neck and smiled at him.
"Cullen" I said and Edward held my gaze "Yes, I'll be your girlfriend"
Edward broke out into an adorable smile. He leaned in closer, about to kiss me.
I pushed my palm against his lips and moved my face to the side.
Edward looked confused until I released him.
"Uhm, I have morning breath, I'm not going to kiss you" I say and Edward shuts his eyes for a second, his nostrils flaring.
But before he could open his eyes, I leaned forward and kissed him.
My lips crashed into his, and I felt him hesitate before he gave into me. He kissed me back with passion and fire. I felt it, the electricity, the butterflies, the little swelling in my chest. I felt it all.
He parted my lips a little but only kissed me. His lips were soft and we synchronized. I felt his arm pull me tight against him and my fingers wrapped in his already messy hair. I didn't want to stop kissing him.
But we both pulled back for air. Edward was looking at me, smiling, a little out of breath.
I bit my lip and he chuckled.
"It's official Cullen, you think everyone's going to freak out?" I asked and he shrugged.
"It's official Swan, and truth is..I don't care if they do. I got you." He said and caught my lips with his again.
I got you. You did Edward, you did.
