OK

OK. I've realized it may take some time to finish my stories what with all I have to do and school starting soon. With that in mind, I'm trying my hand at a One-Shot (and maybe more to come). Please enjoy. Read and Review. (Please allow for the first section being written this morning after no sleep and the rest being written this morning after I woke up in the afternoon.)

She bit her lip nervously. She wasn't sure that she could do this. She wiped her uncharacteristically wet palms on her wrap. "Breathe, Belle. It's only...Adam." And that was the problem. As she said the words, her heart had instantly conjured the name "Beast". Yet her mind had told her firmly that was not his real name. Try as she might, even after the wedding that morning, she still thought of him as her Beast.

She hoped he would like the dress she had chosen. Green silk, with a slit up to her hip and a deep V-neckline, it was much more daring than anything she had worn for him before. Tonight she didn't want to be sweet, innocent, little Belle. Tonight she would be Cleopatra. She would be Helen of Troy. She would take the initiative and seduce Adam. She shivered at her thoughts, but then lifted her chin defiantly. She was determined not to disappoint him. By the end of the night he would be at her feet.

He had noticed Belle's reluctance to use his name. Adam. How hard was that to remember? As he prepared for his wedding night two thoughts stood out in his mind. He would give her the night of her life, making the fantasies in her books a reality. And by the end of the night, she would be happy to use his name...

There was a light knock at the door. "May I come in?" she asked.

"Of course, Belle."

She opened the door connecting their rooms and his jaw dropped. "You look incredible. That dress...your hair. So...sexy."

She blushed. "Adam," she whined slightly convinced he was lying, flattering her. She began to twist her skirt, fidgeting with it in an effort to distract herself from her nervousness.

"Belle." His voice was deeper than before and she realized her movements had revealed the slit to him and thus her shapely legs.

Seeing the desire in his eyes gave her the courage to hold his gaze as she smoothed her hands over her body. His eyes followed the movement of her hands and she saw him swallow hard. "Do you really like it?" she purred. She felt a little ridiculous speaking like that but he didn't seem to notice.

"I'd like it more if you would come here," he replied with such heat in his eyes that she shivered.

"Of course, darling." She moved over to stand beside him next to the bed.

"Adam," he corrected gently.

"Adam," she repeated.

He dipped his head and kissed her lightly. He began to plant mind-numbing kisses along the length of her neck. "Do you like this, Belle?"

"Yes," she whispered.

"Yes, what?"

"Yes, Adam."

He kissed her lips again, this time slowly and leisurely as though he had all the time in the world to explore her mouth. "And that, Belle? Do you like that?"

"Yes."

"Yes, what?"

"Yes, Adam."

He gently scooper her up into his arms and laid her gently on the bed, lying down beside her. Suddenly she pushed him back so he was flat on his back and she was spread out on top of him. She kissed him before he could say anything then leaned over to whisper in his ear.

"Tonight I want to give you pleasure. Teach me. Tell me what you like." Her beautiful brown eyes had darkened and he dearly wanted to do as she commanded.

However he simply wrapped his arms around her and twisted to the side so that he was on top of her. "No, Belle. Tonight will be all about your pleasure. I am determined to make all of your fantasies come true. He untied the belt of his robe and shrugged it off, tossing it across the room haphazardly.

I know. I know I said One-Shot. It's just too long to be one chapter. I feel like you're already tired. I'm posting it as soon as I type it. I promise.
