Leave me Breathless


I awoke to the green light seeping through the window. I grimaced at the thought of today. Today was Sunday. Edward would be leaving at noon to go hunting. It's not that I had a problem with him hunting, I just felt anxious without him. However, it was completely necessary for him to go this time- our wedding was in four days! Four days until we can finally start living our lives together the way in which I have so desperately wanted for so long. I felt a cool touch of his lips on my shoulder as my eyes fluttered open.

"Morning Love," he said as he nibbled on my earlobe. I actually shuddered. He continued to move from my ear to my neck spreading his cool feathery kisses all along my throat. I felt numb and was completely incoherent to my surroundings.

"Ugh, that is so not fair this early in the morning!" I complained. Of course I loved his kisses, but it was just too much to handle at times.

"Feisty today are we?" he chuckled. Edward slowly began tracing random patterns on my skin with his fingertips leaving a trail of fiery sensations. He could do the simplest of actions and leave me breathless. "Leave me breathless…" I thought.

Of course I was excited to finally be Edward's wife, but I was quite anxious for the wedding night. I have never had any experience in this area of life. All I hoped was that I would not embarrass myself or be too awkward in bed, but the chances of me being "sexy" were slim to none. Edward however, would probably be great. I tried to push all these thoughts aside as I jumped off my bed and made my way to the bathroom.

"Human minute?" Edward guessed.

"Yup, I'm just going to take a quick shower". I was seriously in need of one. After Alice's had her little fun using me as a doll yesterday, I still had traces of lipstick and glitter everywhere. I loved her to death, but sometimes I just wish I could go a day without being forced to sit in a chair while people criticized your hair or waxed your eyebrows.

I made my way over to the shower as I slowly pulled off my clothes and wrapped the big white fluffy towel around me. Even though I was all alone in the room, I still felt embarrassed and exposed, so I wore the towel around me until I was actually in the shower. The hot water soothed the pain in my neck as it rolled over my entire body washing away my worries and nerves. I just let the water take complete control of my senses and massage my shoulders. I realized I was taking too long, so reluctantly washed my hair and quickly shaved. I slipped on the way out of the tub scraping my ankle on the side of 

the shower door, but I'm sure it was fine. I continued to dry off and stepped outside as the steam escaped into the cold room.

"I like that look" Edward said smugly. The smirk however turned into a look of confusion and then a look of anxiety. "What happened? Are you okay?" he asked.

"Uhh yeah…I'm fine why?" I quickly analyzed myself and realized that the scrape on my ankle started bleeding. Of course this would happen. "Oh Edward, I'm so sorry! I thought it was just a scrape- I'll go start to cle-" he cut me off.

"Bella, this is not your fault don't be insane. I've actually started carrying band-aids around with me, so come over here" he gestured to the bed. I realized I was still in my towel but I continued to sit on the bed with my leg up on his so he could examine the cut.

"Umm, er Bella…not that I mind, but could you please try to keep your legs together?" he stammered. I think my face went from pink to scarlet in less than 2 seconds.

"I...er...sorry". I mumbled as he cleaned up the cut and bandaged it up. He kissed my ankle and then released me to get dressed. I was still pretty red knowing what Edward saw. Of course he would eventually see my body in a few days, but not even I have looked at my body like that!

I quickly grabbed a simple lacey deep blue tank and grey shorts that Alice had bought me and changed in the bathroom. I didn't exactly intend on doing anything except snuggle with my beautiful fiancé, so I tried to dress comfortable. I came back from the bathroom to see him sitting on my bed playing with the overpriced phone he bought me yesterday.

"As always, you look intoxicating" he said with that crooked grin. He pulled me to the bed, which I realized he made for me with the corner of the blanket turned down. His fingers were typing into the phone so fast I couldn't even see his fingers leave the keypad.

"I'm going to be leaving in an hour or so, so I just wanted to make sure you had everyone's phone numbers. Emmett and Carlisle will be staying home, so In case you need anything you call them. Remember, anything you need just call them and they will be here within 5 minutes".

"Edward you worry too much! Seriously I'm just going to be staying in bed all day reading. The worst that could happen is that I get a paper cut." Paper cut. Such a small ailment caused so much pain last year. I quickly wished I could have taken that last statement back but it was too late. "Sorry, it just slipped out". I muttered as looked into his hurt eyes. He smiled, but he still looked hurt.

"I understand love" he sighed. "I hate to end this, I really don't want to go but I have Alice and Jasper screaming at me in my mind to 'move my lovey dovey behind'" he smiled.

"Oh, okay. Sorry I'm holding you up, I'll really miss you." I frowned as I took his hand in mine.

"As will I love, as will I." he kissed me chastely on the lips and then sped out the window into Alice's waiting yellow Porsche.

I sighed dramatically and headed over to my bed to comb my hair. I jumped at the sound of my cell phone and then made my way over to the table in which it was on. The caller ID said "Emmett".

"Hello?" I asked, already knowing who would respond back.

"Hey Kiddo! What cha up to?" he practically shouted, I'm sure even Charlie could hear him.

"Oh not much just reading, what about you?"

"Not much, just chilling with pops. Now I just wanted to call and let you know that if you need anything, I will be there in the blink of an eye. Seriously, if you so much as even break a nail I want you to call me because if you don't Edward will most likely rip my arm off".

"Don't worry Em, he already gave me this speech. I doubt anything will happen but if it does, you'll be the first to know."

"Alright little sis! Well I'll leave you to your nerdy book. Remember- CALL ME! PEACE!" I chuckled as I hung up the phone. That seriously was your typical phone conversation with Emmett. I was an only child, but he seriously was the best big brother I could ever ask for.

I finished combing my hair and hobbled over to my bed. I started reading this science fiction novel by Terry Goodkind, but was then hit with a wave of fatigue. I hadn't slept that well last night. I set my book down on the nightstand and closed my eyes as I slowly drifted to sleep.
