Disclaimer- Unfortunately, for me I own nothing. Twilight is the brilliant idea of Stephenie Meyers. But the plot is mine…so enjoy!
Every muscle in my body tensed up. A smell more wonderful than any animal I could ever imagine wafted in front of me, carried by the breeze. My senses were lit on fire, my hearing and vision more acute. I wanted to find this delicious scent. I wanted to attack.
I started to run quickly. Edward was just behind me as I neared the origin of the aroma. Then I realized I needed to stop. Just behind the tree line I would come in contact with what I wanted to avoid, yet still I edged further. My mind was a battle zone between right and wrong. One side of me was screaming to stop, and yet another was yelling to go, go, go! I had to fight it. I couldn't let this get the best of me. I had come too far to let this get to me now.
Just as I was about to bust through the trees I stopped. Forcing myself to stop breathing, I painfully turned and started to walk in the opposite direction. Edward was leaning against a nearby pine smiling my favorite crooked grin. Seeing his beautiful face further enhanced my willpower and determination. I would not turn around, I would not look back. I could do this.
"That was magnificent love," Edward purred as I stopped just short of him. Still not breathing, I gave him a weak smile.
"Let's get out of here," I sighed. Nodding, he took my hand and we raced out of the woods. I giggled when I realized that we weren't headed home.
"What are you laughing at?" he asked as he came to a stop, just before the cabin came into view.
"You of course," I laughed. I had yet to take a breath, afraid that if I did the scent would be too powerful for me to resist a second time.
"Breathe love. There's nothing to worry about," Edward replied.
"I don't want to take the chance."
"There never was any danger."
"What do you mean?"
"Bella, do you honestly think I would let you charge at a human like that?" he laughed.
"But I smelled it."
"You smelled a shirt Jasper swiped from a campsite a couple of weeks ago."
"Is that what I've been chasing?" I asked a little angrily. The whole time I thought I was getting close to humanity, and I find out it was just an article of clothing.
"Well, not every time. We've been using different clothing items."
"Great. And I thought I was making progress," I groaned. If I was chasing a shirt with human scent on it like that, how would I ever be able to come in contact with a human?
"You are making great progress Bella, you just have to get used to the scent."
"By chasing shirts?" I growled. Frustrating was an understatement of how the last couple of weeks had been to me. Day after day I would go out with Edward and try to learn how to avoid the calling of the beast within. Each time my willpower was put to the test. Every time, I had gotten close, and a few times Edward had actually tackled me the ground.
"Bella, be reasonable. You have to start out small and work your way up."
"How am I ever going to be able to resist humans?" I asked. I felt like sobbing. I thought I was doing so well, just to find out that I was having a hard time resisting the mere smell left on their clothing.
"Love, you are doing much better than you even realize. A few more times with the clothing items and I think you will be ready to come into some distant contact with humans."
"Why didn't you tell me before?" I asked.
"If you knew it was just a shirt you would be less worried about it. You would know in the back of your mind that it wasn't a human and that you didn't have to worry about whether you came in contact with the scent or not. Without you knowing it was just a shirt, you were able to rationalize with yourself and think that it is humanity that you are nearing. This allows you to build tolerance to the smell," he spoke quickly. If I wasn't a vampire I would not be able to register his quick speech.
"Why do you always have to be right?" I groaned.
"Not always," he laughed as he started to tug me to the cabin. Giggling, I allowed him to pull me to my favorite Alaskan destination. I loved every beam, nail, and fiber of this little get away. It meant a lot to me, and I would be sad the day we had to leave here.
"So this is why Alice came into the room while you went to check the area," I replied as he took the key from his pocket and unlocked the door. Earlier, Alice had barged in as I was getting dressed and had informed me that some sexy underwear was necessary. Not being one to bet against Alice, I took her word and picked out a nice set.
"I thought she was up to something."
"You had no idea?"
"None at all love," he grinned as we walked through the entrance closing the door behind us.
"Guess I ruined the surprise."
"Not at all," he replied as he led me to the bedroom. I was expecting to see the old metal frame bed that came with the house. But I was surprised to find a large knotty pine bed that took up most of the small room's space.
"Edward!" I exclaimed as the large bed came into view. It was gorgeous.
"Do you like it?" he asked pulling me towards the grand bed. The comforter set was a wonderful green color that matched the décor of the cabin perfectly. No doubt Esme had played a role in acquiring this bed.
"I love it," I managed to say. Carefully we sat on the edge of the bed. Running my hand up and down the plush comforter, I thought of all the wonderful things Edward had given me, and the lack of things I had given him. This made me feel guilty. I wanted to give him everything, and yet I had nothing to give. I sighed as I turned my gaze to him.
"What's wrong?" he asked.
"Nothing," I sighed.
"Bella, you're a horrible liar."
"It's just that I never get you anything."
"But you've given me all I've ever asked for," he replied as he placed his hand against my cheek directing my gaze to his.
"You've given me everything I've asked for and more. Edward, I want to be able to do the same for you."
"Love, please don't fret. There's nothing in this entire world that I want. I have everything that I could possibly ever ask for, and not to mention this bed is mine as well as yours."
"Ok, for now," I laughed. I would find some way to return the sentiment.
"For now?" he questioned.
"So, Esme helped you pick this out?" I asked changing the subject.
"Yes, but what did you mean 'for now'?"
"You will find out soon enough, silly," I grinned as closed the distance between us and placed my lips against his. I could tell that he wanted to say more, but I never gave him the chance. I meshed our lips together time after time.
Seeing that he had no choice, he gave up and pulled me closer to him. I was inwardly giggling at my small triumph. Gently, Edward positioned us in the middle of our new bed. His lips never left mine as he positioned himself above me.
Finally breaking the kiss, he positioned his lips on my neck. Each kiss brought a warm feeling. Slowly, he pulled my shirt over my head and tossed it aside. He was momentarily stunned as he took in the sight of the midnight blue bra Alice had suggested I wear.
"Amazing," he purred before our lips met once again. I would be thanking Alice later, I thought, as Edward assaulted my neck with kisses. Slowly his lips found my chest. I felt him grin as he reached behind me to undo the bra. Pulling it off, he threw it aside. He sighed as he kissed each breast. Moaning at the wonderful feeling he was causing, I didn't realize at the time that he had tossed his own shirt aside.
Looking up I saw his beautifully sculpted chest hovering above me. My fingers traced his muscles as he vigorously kissed my neck. My head was spinning with thoughts of him. Each time we connected was amazing. I loved him more and more each time. I rested my fingers on the edge of his jeans. His eyes locked with mine right before his lips crashed into my own.
Never breaking from the kiss, I undid his belt. Pulling it from his jeans, I threw it across the room and heard a small thud as it came in contact with the wall. His hands were on my hips, slowly edging to the center of my abdomen.
Carefully he unfastened my jeans and, lifting my hips from the bed, he slid them off of me and tossed them aside. Unbuttoning his own jeans, he pulled them off and flung them to God knows where, revealing his black silky boxers. I smiled at his eagerness as his lips once again connected with mine. Opening my mouth slightly to take in his wonderful scent, his tongue entered my mouth. I met it with my own and moaned inwardly at the amazing feeling of his tongue on mine. I could swear an electric current passed through us each time we kissed.
His hands gently rubbed down my sides until they came to the edge of the silky dark blue panties that I was wearing. Slowly and carefully he tugged them off. I smiled against his lips as my hands went for his boxers.
I carefully pulled them from him and tossed them to the other side of the room. Nothing lay between us now. His hand gently rubbed my inner thigh as he parted my legs. I smiled as he positioned himself between me.
"I love you Bella," he whispered in my ear.
"I love you too," I panted as I felt him enter. A soft moan escaped my lips as he started to thrust. My hands grasped into his back as he pushed himself again and again. Carefully, I lifted my hips to meet his thrust and to further amplify the amazing feeling that was already taking over my body. Edward growled lowly as he started to pick up the pace. Taking a look at his face, I knew it wouldn't be long before he released.
Gripping him closely to me, I felt a tidal wave a pleasure begin to rock my body. I moaned loudly as the feeling of bliss overtook me. With one last powerful thrust, Edward came. Holding me tightly to him, he groaned as pleasure took over him. A moment later he pulled himself from me and gently fell to the side, pulling me close to him.
I sighed in contentment as I rested my head against him.
"Love, that was amazing," he whispered in my ear.
"Yes, it was," I agreed.
"Now, tell me, if you don't mind, what do you have in store for me?"
"I'm not going to say," I giggled. In truth I had no idea. I was waiting to speak to Alice before I made any plans.
"Bella," he said, as he tilted my chin so that my gaze was locked with his. His eyes burned deep into my own, seemingly piercing into my soul. Every thought I had was momentarily directed at him, as he was dazzling me, once again.
"Not a chance," I laughed. I had fallen prey to his dazzling ways too many times to let it truly affect me without consent anymore.
"Bella…," he started, but was cut off as we heard his cell phone begin to vibrate in the pocket of his jeans.
"You better get it," I groaned. The family never called us unless it was important. Nodding in agreement, he got up from the bed, found his pants, and took the silver flip phone from his pocket. Opening it, he answered.
"Calm down Alice." I momentarily became worried as I heard his words.
"Yes, we are on our way," he replied before hanging up.
"What's wrong?" I asked on the verge of being panicked.
"Nothing big, we have some visitors."
"Who?" I asked as a new level of panic overtook me. Hopefully it wasn't the Volturri, but Alice would have seen them make the decision, right? I wasn't ready to see them yet; I wasn't ready to face those vile creatures. Who would be visiting us if not them?
(A/N: Well, here it is the beginning of the sequel of Waiting for Forever. What do you think? Should I continue it? Review and let me know please! Who could possibly be visiting them? Are they ready to meet the arrivals? What's in store? Thanks go out to my beta xedwardxloverx!)
