Hey all! So...call this a sequel, a follow-up story, whatever...I just couldn't leave This Lullaby alone. So many things were left unsaid. So without further ado, I hope you enjoy this little intro chapter.
Disclaimer: I don't own the Twilight Series or any of its characters. Stephenie Meyer does.
After the piano concert, Bella and Edward went home and showed each other just how much they loved one another other. Before they knew it, there was a baby, marriage, and everyone lived happily ever after…? Right. Now let's get on with the real story shall we? Lol. (Note: If you read this...I'm just joking. Kay?)
Busted and Disgusted
(A couple of weeks after the concert; at Bella and Edward's dorm)
I grumbled in frustration and kept my eyes shut. Why couldn't he just leave me alone?
"Bella, maybe it's time you answered his calls," Edward mumbled into my ear.
I struggled to turn around on the sofa we'd fallen asleep on last night and looked up at his face. His eyes were only half open, but it was enough for me to see the concern in them
"I'll call him tonight," I said, knowing I'd regret it later. But really, it was the right thing to do, for now.
A slow smile spread across his face and he tightened his arms around my waist. "Smart choice Love."
A tingle seemed to go up my spine as he spoke. Whether it was from his new nickname for me or the fact that his lips were resting at the base of my neck…I wasn't sure.
"What are we doing today?" he asked, as he continued the journey towards my lips.
"Ah… whatever…maybe Alice…" It was so hard to form a coherent sentence when his face was hovering less than an inch away from mine. And that intense look in his eyes as he looked down at me…I just knew he was up to something. And I would have made that clear, if his lips hadn't crashed onto mine a second later, erasing all logical thoughts from my head.
As if with minds of their own, my arms reached up and encircled his neck; pulling him closer. I felt him smile at my eagerness…but hey, what'd he expect?
I scooted over a little and his whole body, which he'd been balancing on his hand, seemed to land on me. Neither of us noticed though, because we were too far gone. The little bubble that seemed to form around us whenever we were together had made its appearance and our surroundings, were now forgotten.
He left my lips and began to trail kisses down my neck again, his hands playing with the ends of my shirt. It wasn't long before one finger, another, and soon his whole hand, slipped beneath and began to make their way up. The moment was so heated, with nothing but the sounds of our breaths to fill the room, it seemed nothing could break through.
That is, until we heard the voice.
"What in god's name is going on here?!"
Adrenaline pumped through my veins and I froze at the sound of his voice.
Pushing Edward off me, I jumped off the couch and attempted to straighten out my clothes while patting down my hair. I chanced a look at Edward and he was struggling to do the same.
Turning back towards the door, I prepared to face our fears. The look on his face as he shoved the door close behind him and stalked into the room allowed only a couple of thoughts to run through my head.
I was soo dead.
A couple of notes.
1. Jacob will not be playing an important role in this story. In fact, I'm not sure if he'll be in it at all. So no, that was not him at the door. I'd like to think I'm smart and you have no idea who it is, but I'd be kidding myself.
2. This Lullaby got nominated for The Forbidden Fruit Award (Best Romance) at the Denali Coven. I'm so grateful to those of you who did that. The link is on my profile so don't forget to vote on May 15th. :)
3. If you're a little confused after reading this chapter...that was my intention...
All right, sorry for keeping you.
Please review and tell me what you thought. ;)
