I'm thinking about another chapter, but I don't know yet, let's see how this one is received, meanwhile I want to thank: Jess - Loves Forever, she beta-ed this for me, thank you so much!!
My life had changed dramatically in the last month. I was in absolute bliss and in love with the most wonderful girl ever. I had been in love with her for a while already but I never had the courage to do something about it… it's not that I was that shy or gay –as some girls started to call me behind my back after all the rejections… it was just that I had been struck by this invisible girl and she didn't even notice me, she seemed to flee as soon as she laid eyes on me, and that was so hurtful.
Truth was… she liked me, she had the same feelings I did, but neither of us was strong enough to do something about them, we talked about all of the opportunities and lost time, only to thank Mrs. Scott for taking her time to tell Bella the truth. Bella told me about the day our teacher came to the tutoring center telling her about how I stood by the door angry at myself… and I was, I was there in front of the girl of my dreams, we were alone, and I was taking my chances to speak with her using my brothers' location as an excuse even though I had just run into him and he had told me about his tutoring with Bella… she answered me, uncomfortable and I took my cue to leave, she obviously didn't want me, that was what I thought at the time.
A few days after… we made love…
Yes, it was rushed, and not like us at all, but coming together that night, after so much lost time, after so many misunderstandings, was the only way to start something that we both knew was forever.
We slowed things down after that.
Our first date to the movies was filled with awkwardness, we had talked that Friday through the phone for hours, she had some essays to finish and my mother had taken us to visit our grandmother in New York, so we couldn't get together, but each minute we passed talking made me fall even more in love with her, when we met that Monday night in front of the theatre we stood in silence watching each other.
"Hi…" she whispered.
"How was your flight?"
"Great... it got delayed, that's why I didn't go to school today."
"I noticed" she said blushing.
"Come on, let's watch a movie."
I took her hand and bought a couple of tickets. I couldn't understand or stand the silence, so I needed something to do. She refused any candy, but I did buy a coke for both of us, we sat in the almost empty room watching the previews. If you ask me what was the movie about, I had no idea, I spent most of the time looking at her profile and thinking about our night together not understanding our current situation, if you had asked her, she would have said the same thing, even if we had to go again afterwards to watch it again, we still wouldn't know.
Tree Hill at night was a beautiful place, little lights illuminated the sidewalk by the river and people were consumed by their own stuff, hand in hand we kept walking in silence, till we couldn't anymore and she spoke.
"I'm not easy!"
"Sorry… it's just that… I'm not easy, I know that it was rushed and out of the blue, but it was you, and I couldn't think straight, I have been in love with you for so long, and I was afraid that was my only chance, and I'm sorry for this awkwardness, but I just can't stop worrying about what you might think of—"
I stopped her with a hungry kiss, she moaned into my mouth and latched her arms around my neck. I couldn't stop the images and feelings, I was just so happy to finally have her. I remember that first day in Tree Hill High, I was walking down the hallways and there she was coming towards me, hands full of books, long brown and wavy hair, pale and soft skin, before suddenly she fell forward and before I could help her with her books she had them in her hands and was running the hell away from there, only one small notebook was left behind and I picked it up discovering that the name of the goddess was Isabella Swan, I couldn't contain my excitement at discovering she was my lab partner, but everything went down when I gave her the small notebook and she just look at me bewildered, mumbled a thank you and bolted out of her seat as soon as the bell rang.
"God, Bella… I missed you so much this weekend… and I would never think you were easy, I rushed just as much as you, we were both virgins, remember…"
"Yeah" she said and blushed a little bit more.
"Look, I know this only means more pressure, but you don't have to feel it, we don't have to do anything, not until we are ready, this was our first date, let's explore our relationship little by little, and when it happens again it'll be as perfect as the first time…"
"Really?" she asked me relieved and smiling.
"Of course, I love you, Bella… I would do anything for you."
"I love you too"
To say people were shocked is an understatement, most of the girls went ballistic, and the guys started lamenting themselves for not doing something sooner, Bella always the shy one tried to be even more careful around people, that didn't stop them to talk about her. Once Bella had told me about some nasty stuff she had heard in the bathroom about her, I made a really big PDA show and told them to stay the hell away from us, very publicly.
"You shouldn't have done that…" she told me afterwards in my car.
"What? I shouldn't have defended you? They insulted you and our relationship and I'm not going to let them…"
"Look… I'm Edward Cullen, star basketball player, and according to them that fact makes me their property, they think they have some kind of power and control over me and my actions and I'm sick and tired of it… one thing is to attack me, but if they attack the girl I love then you can bet I'm going to do something about it".
To say she was grateful after that is one thing, she performed some really wicked stuff with those hands of hers, and to say I was glad we got that out of the way is another, now she had let go of that embarrassment, and I was happy holding her hand and kissing her in the hallways.
But now our first month anniversary was here and I couldn't wait to show her what I had done, I honked outside her house two times, Charlie's cruiser wasn't there, so I didn't have to worry, he liked me as much as any guy would like his 16 year old daughter's boyfriend. She came out of the house wearing a beautiful blue dress, it was almost six and we were going to a fancy restaurant to celebrate. I got out of my Volvo and waited for her by the door.
"Hello to you too" she greeted me hugging me from the waist and kissing me softly.
"You look beautiful, is it new?" I asked caressing the back of the dress or lack-there-of.
"Yeah, Alice made me buy it, she wouldn't let me use any of my clothes to our date today."
Alice… she and Emmett were thrilled about the relationship, he adored Bella –in a little sister kind of way- and Alice was so excited that we had finally admitted our feelings to each other, she and Bella became fast friends, Jasper was fine as long as Alice was happy, but Rose… well, Rosalie wasn't a bitch towards Bella, but she wasn't exactly welcoming, after all she was the most popular girl in school, and had known the least popular girl "Bella" since they were in kindergarten. At least she was polite.
I took her hand, opened her door and made her sit down before running to the other side to get going.
"So… where are you taking me?"
"We are going to get your present first…"
"Present? Edward we made a deal! We wouldn't give each other presents… the dinner would be it" she told me angry.
"I don't like people expending money on me!"
"I'm not spending! Well… the present itself didn't cost any money, I promise…"
She looked hard at me, and then sighed nodding her head.
"Ok, let's go…"
I took her hand and drove to my destination.
"Tric?" she asked a couple of minutes later.
"Actually… no… I'm not taking you here…"
We both got out of our car and she took my hand while I opened the door and lead her towards the backroom, a sign for "Red Room Records" greet us, we entered and there they were. Peyton Sawyer-Scott and Lucas Scott, and a little blond girl was playing with her dad.
"Oh! Hi, Edward!"
"Hi, Peyton… how are you?"
"Awesome… have you met Lucas?"
The blond guy stood up… no I hadn't met him personally, but everyone in this town new who he was, a lot of people in the world knew him too, after all his book was a best-seller and blockbuster.
"No… nice to meet you… Edward Cullen, and this is my beautiful girlfriend Bella Swan."
We all shook hands.
"Yeah, I know… I have heard about you playing in the Ravens… Skills is your coach, right? I haven't had the time to watch the team…"
"Yes… we really have a shot this year."
"And who's this beautiful little girl?" Bella asked crouching a little to stay eye-level with the blonde that was with cross arms.
"Sawyer Brooke Scott" the girl said with authority sticking her hand out.
Everybody laughed at her attitude.
"Nice to meet you, Sawyer… I'm Isabella Marie Swan."
"She's a little bitchy, got that from me…" Peyton said with a smile.
"And the moodiness from me" Lucas added with a smile.
"So…" I started looking at Peyton "Is it ready?"
"Uh-uh… you can go in the recording room."
"Thanks… see you both later."
Bella waved with her hand confused and followed me.
"Where are we going…"
"I need you to listen to something."
"Come on sit down" I instructed her as soon as we got to the piano, she looked at me intrigued and I winked while placing my hands.
The melody that had been stuck in my head since I had met her, and that had only found its way out after our first night together enveloped us. It was her lullaby, it had been years since I had composed something, I stopped as soon as my parents told me about the move, I didn't want to leave my life behind, what I didn't know then was that I was moving towards my future. And she was sitting, right beside me.
Bella looked at me with tears in her eyes and a smile on her lips. She looked confused though.
"That was beautiful, Edward… you told me you played, but I had never heard you."
"Yeah, well… I was pissed when I moved here, and uninspired, that was until I met you… the first day I saw you this started playing, it was maddening, I never was able to write down, not until we got together, I've been working on it with Peyton's help, we recorded actually, the CD's outside."
"What? I don't get it…"
"I wrote it for you, Bella… you inspired this piece, I like to think of it as your lullaby…"
"That's why it sounded familiar! You hummed this to me sometimes…"
"Yes… testing the melody…"
"Edward…" she shook her head and looked at me smiling "No one has ever given me something as beautiful as this… thank you…"
"No… thank you… this past month has been the happiest in my life, and it's all because of you."
She hugged me fiercely and then step back to kiss me. Her lips were salty due to her happy tears but the softness and the already familiar motions were my safe haven. She meant everything to me, and this was nothing compared to all the feelings she had given me. I felt her tongue tracing my lips and complied immediately, devouring each other. Someone cleared their throat making us jump apart.
She looked at us with a smile on her face.
"Wow… nice show you too had going over there, and I thought Emmett's and Rosalie's PDA was the worst."
"Sorry…" I mumbled.
"Don't worry about it… I just came looking for a demo, Peyton told me you two were back here, didn't expect this though…"
"Yeah… neither did we… but we are actually leaving" Bella said looking at me raising an eyebrow.
"Yeah! We are…"
"Oh… it's not because of me though… right?"
"Of course not… we are just celebrating our first month anniversary"
"I see… good luck with that!"
Bella took me practically running to my car, I looked at her confused but she just smiled.
"I'm just hungry…"
"Oh, ok… no problem, we'll be in the restaurant in a few minutes" I said starting the car, but a hand in my crotch made me jump a little.
"I'm not hungry of food Edward" Bella whispered in my ear "take me home, I'm alone tonight" she finished biting my earlobe.
I looked at her, she was smiling, looking so innocent, I couldn't believe it, but I didn't need to be told twice, I started the car and speed off the road. It seems Bella didn't hear of safety while driving, cause her hand didn't stop the activities engaging a very hard part of my body, I could only breath and hope her house would appear soon enough.
The moment I parked behind her truck between the shadows cast by the trees next to her house I was ready to open my door and run to her side of the vehicle, but her hand stopped me. She knelt and grabbing my neck kissed me hard on the lips, her tongue licked every crevice of my mouth, and I couldn't contain the moan that escaped my throat.
"Bella… wait… I—"
"But let's go inside… let's—" she put her hand on my mouth, and with the other one unzip my pants, I look at her raising an eyebrow.
"You gave me the most precious gift anyone has ever given me… that song was beautiful, and I can't think of another way to repay you… I want to do this here, now… so every time you get into this car you'll remember me…" she smiled.
"I don't need this to remember you, you barely leave my mind, even in my dreams you visit me."
"Maybe so… but I want to."
Next thing I now she was taking me out of my pants and stroking me hard, she knew the exact pressure I liked and my head hit the headrest with a thud, my eyes closing in their own volition. Something wet and hot and so soft enveloped my member, and at that moment I thought I was in heaven, I saw her head bouncing up and down, her hair all over my lap, I massaged her scalp in time with her motions, while my other hand was gripping the steer wheel hard, I didn't want to move, I didn't want to force myself on her, but the feeling was so great that my hips lift themselves up.
I could feel her throat and the humming vibrations made me moan even harder, I couldn't contain my sounds or hips anymore, and I tried to raise Bella's head.
"Love, I'm going to… please… I'm going to…"
Her hand gripped my thighs really hard and her sucking motion made me go insane, a loud honking –probably of my car- accompanied the mind-blowing explosion.
The only sounds afterward were my loud panting and Bella's elaborated breathing, she was blushing and sweating, so beautiful, I knew I was staring, but couldn't help myself.
"That was… that was… I'm speechless"
"I made you speechless?" she blushed even further "It was that good? I've only heard of it, I've never done it, and—"
I grabbed her by the neck and kissed her passionately, I tried to show her how good that was for me, but I felt like kisses weren't enough.
"You're really alone for the night?"
"Charlie is working the night-shift…"
"I think it's time to celebrate our first anniversary properly." I whispered against her lips.
"I think so too…"
And that second time with her was even better than the first. Let's just say that was the best anniversary ever…
