"Ow." Bella jerked her hand away from the knife that she had been holding, letting it clatter to the floor as she surveyed her finger tip, which had begun to bleed. "Shoot," she muttered, pressing down on her finger with her thumb as the blood started to flow.
Edward was by her side in an instant, murmuring in concern, "Are you all right, Bella?" His warm breath caressed her earlobe, causing a shiver to run down her spine. He noticed this, and reluctantly took a step back.
"I'm fine," Bella said with a small smile, turning around to face him, her back against the counter. "It's just a cut."
Edward stared at her, his gorgeous green eyes smoldering with an intense fervor that made her insides immediately turn to mush.
He stepped forward again, and Bella's breath caught in her throat.
Edward and Bella jumped almost the same time as their manager, Mr. Grange, came striding towards them. Edward rocked back on his heels, his one hand rubbing the back of his neck in an awkward gesture. Bella glanced down at her shoes, her cheeks blooming with color.
"I need you two to close up the shop. The last customer should be leaving in a couple of minutes," he said, with a tone that undoubtedly expressed his authority. "Do you two think you can handle it?"
They nodded simultaneously.
"Good. I'll see you two tomorrow bright and early, then. Here are the keys," he tossed them towards Edward, who caught them expertly in his hands. He nodded towards them and headed out the door, mumbling a 'good night' on the way out.
They worked quietly together until the last customer left the beanery. The moment Bella and Edward were alone, the atmosphere unmistakably turned much warmer. Edward turned his scorching gaze to Bella and smiled charmingly.
"Alone at last."
Bella's breath caught in her throat. "Yes," she whispered, her heart beginning to speed up and pound hard against her chest.
Edward's face looked emotionally pained as he began to ramble softly, "Bella, I've been meaning to tell you...I know we've been dating for a couple of months now, and I don't know if you feel the same way as I do. But Bella, from the moment I saw you, I've admired you." His voice got considerably lower as he added, "And now...now I know that I don't just admire you." His voice became low and passionate as he murmured, "I love you."
Bella's eyes grew wide with shock. "Oh," she whispered, unable to utter a coherent sentence, let alone remember how to breathe. "Oh..."
"Listen, you don't have to say anything-"
Edward's remark was cut short as Bella beamed at him a huge, ravishing smile. "I love you too, Edward."
He stared at Bella in shock. "You...you do?"
Bella grinned at him. "Want me to demonstrate just how much?"
Before Edward had a chance to ask her what she had meant Bella leaned forward, her full, yearning mouth crashing against his. At the sudden and unexpected contact, Edward stumbled back and their bodies collided against the counter behind them, knocking into the espresso machine.
They both stopped what they were doing to turn around and stare at it. A quick, peculiar craving hit them almost at once, and for the second time that night, Bella felt incredibly turned on.
"It's...beautiful," Bella whispered, reaching out to caress it sensuously with the palm of her hand. From where Edward stood beside her, she noticed the bulge in his pants and how it had grown enormously. She smirked, and leaned forward, her chest brushing against the espresso machine. "Mmmm..." she leaned her head back and moaned.
"Fuck, Bella," Edward growled. He stepped forward and pressed his manhood against her ass, letting her feel just how much she had made him aroused.
A sharp gasp escaped her throat, and her eyes began to gleam with lust and undefeatable passion. She turned around and slid her hands down his chest, roaming all the way down until she reached his manhood. Her lips parted as she took it in her hands embrace and squeezed it roughly.
A groan escaped Edward's lips. His breath grew quick, his heart beat growing irregular. He grasped her arms with both of his hands and swooped down to kiss her passionately, his body pressed hard against hers.
Edward drew back, blinking in confusion.
"Why not get a little...creative?" Bella drew behind her back a cup of espresso, with whipped cream and chocolate swirls decorating the top. She leaned her head back and drank a long sip, savoring in the taste. When she lifted her head back up, her lips were coated with hot, sugary goodness. "Want a taste?" she murmured, smiling seductively.
Desire like nothing Edward had ever felt before flooded through him. Emitting a low, sultry growl, Edward ripped off her shirt in one, eager flourish, and grinned when he noticed her shocked expression. "I want you," he murmured passionately, sliding his hands down her waist and thrusting her against his chest. "All of you," he whispered hotly against her ear, beginning to rain kisses down her neck and the sensitive spot right between her breasts.
Bella leaned her head back and moaned, permitting him access to her neck, her chest – everywhere. It was all for the taking. Tonight, she would hold nothing back. Tonight, she would show him just how much she had wanted him since the day he had walked through that door, gorgeous and handsome. His tongue swiped beneath her chin, her body releasing a violent shudder in response.
Sooner than she had expected, two sets of clothes lay forgotten in a rumbled pile on the floor, and their naked bodies, warm and inviting, were pressing against each other in a passionate embrace. Bella gasped as Edward grazed his slender fingers against her thigh, and then slid his finger into the spot between her legs. She arched backwards, leaning into the espresso machine and causing coffee to spurt out and onto her back.
"Oh!" Her lips parted as she felt the hot liquid splash against her already sweltering skin. "Oh, God...Edward," she whispered breathlessly. Sensing what she wanted, Edward reached out and pressed the espresso button, watching hungrily as it began streaming over Bella's collarbone and down her chest in one lush, thick wave. Wordlessly, Edward leaned down and began sucking on her warm, wet nipple; partaking in the delicacy of her and of the coffee that filled his mouth and made his taste buds run pungent and untamed.
Bella gasped, her chest heaving up and down as her body took on a series of spasms. She clung to Edward, panting and shuddering against him. The tip of his arousal brushed against her swollen midsection, and her heart rate sped to the highest extent. Her knees buckled, but before she could collapse Edward wrapped his hands around her and pushed her on top of the counter. She shivered as the cold seeped through her skin, and in a feeble attempt to stay warm, clutched Edward closer with her arms.
He needed no further encouragement. Gripping her thighs with his hands, he spread her legs wider to provide easier access and in one quick thrust, slipped himself inside of her.
Pure bliss. Nothing could accurately describe what both Edward and Bella were feeling as their bodies become one in that moment. The slow, satiny slide of him entering her was enough to still the erratic beat of her heart and the blood rushing through her veins. Wrapping her legs around him, Bella groaned as he began setting a rhythm; thrusting himself inside her even more thoroughly than he had before.
Once Edward's thrusts proceeded to slow, Bella's eyes sparked with sudden mischief. Gripping the edge of the counter in her hands, she pushed herself out of him completely and leaned over to grab the chocolate syrup that had been placed all by its lonesome right beside them. Edward eyed her curiously as she squirted chocolate into the palm of her hand, and then placed it back on the counter.
"Bella...?" He didn't get a chance to finish. A gasp escaped his throat as she took his swollen manhood in her chocolate-covered hand and started to stroke it.
"B-Bella." Edward closed his eyes and groaned, his head rolling back in a wave of outright ecstasy. After a moment of perfect bliss, Bella's hand stilled, and he jerked his head back to see what she was doing.
Nothing prepared him for what happened next.
"I want you, Edward," Bella murmured, repeating his exact words from before.
"All of you."
And with that, she swooped down and took him in her mouth, running her lips up and down and along the entire length of him, and making his whole body convulse. Bella closed her eyes and moaned, relishing in the perfect taste of him and of the chocolate that deliriously satisfied her in every way possible. When she pulled back, she only wanted more.
"Bella...don't stop." Edward's voice was a plea. "Whatever you do. Don't. Stop."
Bella smiled, because she knew that she had just created something new. It was an addiction that needed to be satisfied, a thirst that needed to be quenched, and a pleasure that needed to be indulged.
And with just the right person, you could conquer those things, and much more. All you need is a little imagination, a dash of creativity, and some coffee, of course.
Because after all...what is sex without all the right kind of ingredients?
I always appreciate reviews!
