I felt something cold run down my leg and shivered. I quickly jolted my leg up close to my body, snuggling closer into the plush couch and attempted to stay asleep.
A light chuckle made me want to wake up.
My eyes shot open to see the handsome god himself leaning over the side of the couch with his hand hanging a few inches above my leg.
"Cold, love?" He smirked.
I sat up a little and smirked back as I ran a hand quickly over the tangling in my hair. "Actually, yeah. But I know a way you can warm me up…" I ran a finger along his jaw line, then smoothly brushed them against his lips.
He closed his eyes, getting lost in my touch. "You're absurd, Bella."
"Fine." I took my hand away and threw the covers off me and stood up. His eyes immediately flew open the moment my skin left his and his eyes followed my body as it walked away.
"Where are you going?" I glanced behind me as I looked over a him, still leaning over the couch.
"I need a shower." I took a few more steps up, then turned back towards him. "Unless…you know…you'd like to join me." I grinned.
He frowned at me. "Go shower, Bella."
"Fine." I stomped up the remaining stairs.
After exiting the steamy shower, I stepped into Edwards room with nothing but a towel on. Half the clothes I wore yesterday were still strewn across the floor of his room.
His eyes immediately went to my body as I entered.
"Hello." I grinned.
"Hello." He said politely back, though a strain marked his tone.
I looked at the empty floor. "My clothes were in here."
"They're in the wash."
I glanced back up at him. "So what exactly would I be wearing for the remainder of the day?" I bent my knee a little and tilted my head to the side, curious at what his thoughts were.
He hopped off his bed in one smooth movement and went over to his dresser, quickly pulling out a shirt and sweatpants. He neatly laid them on the bed in front of me. "I figured you could wear my clothes."
I nodded and walked over to the clothes and blushed slightly. I glanced at him and he gave me a curious look.
I smiled and shrugged, then dropped my towel.
I heard him gasp.
I acted like I didn't hear him as I picked up the shirt and slowly unfolded it, then placed it over my head and let it fall around me like a dress.
I peeked at him from the corner of my eye. He was staring intently at me, his fists clenched at his sides, knuckles white. I chuckled and he narrowed his eyes.
I moved my eyes back to the clothes and picked up the sweatpants, pulling them up to my waist. Then let go. They dropped back down. My forehead creased. "I don't' think that's going to happen anytime soon."
I kicked the sweatpants away, then sat on the corner of the bed. "I guess the shirt will do." I smiled at him.
He still had a frozen expression on.
His eyes flickered with realization and focused on me. They narrowed almost immediately. "Bella…" He choked out. "You have no idea how tempting you are." He spoke quietly, but roughly.
"What tempts you more, my blood or my body?" I chuckled at the question I asked him many times.
"Right now? Your body." And then I was in his arms.
He brought his arms underneath my legs and around my shoulders and crashed us into the middle of the bed.
I squealed and looked up at him before he crashed his lips to mine.
Our lips moved eagerly together, full of want and desire. I slowly let my tongue traced his smooth top lip, continuing on to his bottom one before his lips parted and his icy cold tongue met mine with a spark.
I bent my legs up and his body fell into between them perfectly. His groin brushed gently against my naked core. I moaned into his mouth and my arms wrapped around his neck, pulling him closer.
My breathing started to get ragged and his lips moved to my collarbone as my fingertips traced up and down his smooth muscular back quickly.
His cold breath was irregular too as It brushed against my skin. I shivered but was immediately warm against as his finger tips brushed against my hip. I moved them forward, towards them more and more. I needed him.
His lips left my collarbone. "Shit." I glanced down at him, confused.
Next thing I knew, we were sitting up in the middle of the bed. He quickly pulled the covers over my lap and I continued to look at him, completely confused.
"Edward! Belllla!" Alice's sing-song voice rang from downstairs.
I groaned loudly so that she would hear and fell into the mass of pillows on the bed, covering my face of utter disappointment.
I heard her appear in the doorway and take in the sight before her. "Did I interrupt something?" She asked, knowingly.
"Yes, Alice. You did. Thank you, By the way." Edward spoke, aggravated.
"So everything's all good?" I moved my head and looked at her as her eyes went frantically between the two of us. Then I glanced at Edward. He was looking at me and next thing I knew his hand was on my hip, rubbing soothing circles.
"Yeah. Everything's good." He smiled, answering to me for the most part.
She clapped her hands eagerly and jumped up and down. "Yay! This calls for celebration!" She squealed.
"Maybe another day, Alice. Bella needs to head home before Charlie gets suspicious.
I glanced at the alarm clock and saw it was a quarter past six. "Oh!" I sat up in bed, not realizing it was so late.
"Alice, can you get Bella's clothing?" She nodded and left.
"I don't want to leave." I moaned and looked over at Edward.
"Sorry, love. We'll have another sleepover like this soon." He whispered in my ear and kissed the tender skin below it.
"How about tonight?" I whispered. He chuckled though.
"I have to go hunting again. After all you put me through, I really need to."
I smiled. "Sorry I'm so…tempting."
"You should be."
I just chuckled.
After getting dressed and saying my hellos and goodbyes to his family ,I stepped into the Volvo and Edward drove me home.
"Will I see you tomorrow?" I glanced at him.
He chuckled at my eagerness and thought deeply. "How about we go for dinner or something later on tomorrow night."
"Nothing too expensive?"
I grinned. "Okay."
"So that means Alice will be over at 4 to get you dressed." I frowned.
"Fine." I crossed my arms and pouted.
The car stopped and I looked out the window and saw we were already there.
"Goodnight, Love." I smiled and turned back to him, giving him a softly chaste kiss before stepped out of the car and walking into the house.
Charlie was passed out in front of the TV, a beer in hand. I chuckled and took it out of his hand gently, throwing it away. I shut off the Television and threw a blanket over him then walked up the steps to my bedroom.
I ran a brush through my hair and changed into some clean clothes. I laid on my bed for awhile thinking about the past few days and groaned internally. So much happened but I think they were finally get patched up. That was good.
I sat up for hours just thinking and day dreaming. Thinking of tomorrow. Thinking of the future. Thinking of everything. I was excited for the future for the most part.
Eventually I fell asleep late in the night.
I woke up to the pitter patter of rain on the rooftop. I listened closely in the house and heard nothing but rain. Charlie went to work already. I moved my legs over the edge of the bed and stood up, stretching.
I looked out the window and saw a note.
I walked over and slipped out the piece of paper from under the window and opened it.
I had a great time yesterday,
Can't wait to see you.
How about we meet at the Northwest Grand Hotel in Port Angeles today?
Come early, At lets say 3 in the afternoon? I have something special planned for us.
Don't be late, love.
I love you.
I smiled at the note, though I was a bit confused. The note was printed up on a computer, not in his normal script. Weren't we supposed to be going to dinner later? And why so early? Usually he picked me up. But now we were meeting up?
Maybe it was something really special.
I smiled at the thought.
I couldn't wait for tonight.
Heh. Don't kill me for the long wait that you had for this chapter.
I'm so sorry! I have school and stuff and It just kept me preoccupied.
My apologies, again.
But I hope you enjoy the chapter. I'm starting to wrap up the story, I think.
So review and tell me what you think.
I can't promise you anything, but I'll try to continue faster. Well, at least faster than the time between the last chapter and this one.
