I was having a very good dream. Not sure what it was about but I knew it was a good one. And for once I wasn't plagued by the never-ending beeping sound of my alarm clock, signaling it was time to get up and be ready for another day of school, i.e. hell.
No I was in heaven. Or maybe paradise. It was hard to tell the difference. It didn't matter which, I never wanted to leave. I've lived in warm places before but this feels totally different. It could be for the fact that my father wasn't hovering over every single move I make.
My eyes slowly opened and I was greeted, yet again, by the luscious sound of waves crashing against nearby rocks. The sun was just rising and the warm breeze ruffled the white curtains by the open French doors.
I lay there for a moment, taking it all in. Greece truly was beautiful. It may be hot as hell but that's a small price to pay to live here. Live here. I was actually living in Greece. Who the fuck would have thought that?! Sure as fuck no me! For one, I never thought Charlie would ever allow me that. Especially since I decided not to go to college. It wasn't that hard of a decision.
Charlie took it better than I thought he would have. At least he didn't kill anyone. Renee had actually stood behind me. I wasn't expecting that, especially since she went to college, and a good one at that.
Edward took it a little less enthusiastically.
"How can you just decide not to go to college?!" I winced at his volume.
"Actually it was very easy. I'm not going to be one of those people who wonder what happened to her life. I know how many people say that they'll travel and such after college but it never happens."
"So what? You want to travel? Where? How long?"
"Maybe. I've always wanted to go to Italy, or maybe Spain. I don't know how long and the fact that I don't have to decide that is so deliberating." Edward sighed and ran a hand thru his hair. Then he shook his head.
"Are you really doing this?" I took a deep breath.
"Yes," I said determinedly.
"So what does this mean for us?"
"What do you want to do? After graduation, I mean."
"School, of course."
"Why's that so obvious?"
"Because… that's what you do."
"I don't know! Society. Look Bella. I've been brought up knowing I was going to college, weather I wanted to or not."
"That's so… sad. But I wasn't asking what you were brought up to do. I wanted to know what you want to do. Just put the college stuff out of the picture for a moment. Then what do you want to do?" I waited patiently. I could see he didn't want to do this.
"I don't know."
"Neither do I. That's what so great. Do you really want to live by a schedule for the rest of your life?"
"When did you get all hippie like?" I laughed.
"I'm not a hippie," I said, laughing. "Ever since your accident. I've been thinking more about life and I don't want to wake up one morning and have loads of things on a list that I regret not doing. And even if this turns out to be a mistake, it will be my mistake, but at least I tried it."
He couldn't argue with me on that. Okay he could. But when I compared him to Charlie, he stopped talking all together and agreed that everything I said made sense.
Edward did make me promise that I wouldn't leave… yet. And I didn't. I actually got a job. True, it was the fanciest; working at Wallmart. But I managed to save up enough money for said trip I was on now. It felt so much better knowing I had actually worked for it myself and not have it handed to me on a silver platter.
Edward went to college; University of Washington. The only reason I decided not to go anywhere until next summer was because – even though I would never admit this out loud – I was so fucking dependant on that boy it was pathetic. I found it hard not to sleep if he wasn't at least in the same room.
I wasn't sure if I was every going back to school. At the moment it didn't really matter. Alice wouldn't shut up about it. Not because I needed the education but because she had it all planned out how she, Rose and I were going to chare a dorm room. Apparently, I ruined all her hopes of a normal college experience. She's too dramatic.
So it was just her and Rose now. What a big shocker it was when Alice took courses in fashion and art. It was all very predictable. Rose got into the mechanics course she had been yapping about for weeks.
I was surprised when Jasper applied for psychology. But I guess I could see it now. Him being so calm and all. He'd sure to stop anyone from committing suicide.
Emmett went the same direction as his other half – his word not mine! But that's understandable. If she told him to jump off a cliff, he would. Whipped idiot.
And then we have Edward. He did something I never thought possible. Edward took two semesters of law. Who would know he had it in him? I suppose I should but I really didn't. He's never expressed an interest in the law before.
And the ill-fated parents of mine? They're in the picture. I was surprised when Renee stuck it out for two months. Maybe she is in it for the long run this time. Charlie is as "transfixed" by her as he was when she first stepped into our lives. He tried to hide it but an idiot could see it. I just hope he doesn't do anything stupid. But I guess I must have gotten my not-so-sane-mind from somewhere.
Back to the present… I stretched my muscles and smiled as an arm crept around my hip and held on to me hard. Edward pulled me back towards him and nuzzled his head into my neck, burying it in my hair. I wiggled against him and he groaned, making the vibrations go right through me.
"It's not nice to tease," Edward whispered into my ear. I smirked and rolled over, pushing him down on the bed and crawling on top of him. His hands went out to my hips, holding me there.
"It's only teasing if I don't plan to follow through." I leaned forward and pressed my lips against his. The sheet fell from my body and Goosebumps appeared as the air hit my naked skin.
Edward's hands traced my sides and as they came up to cup my breasts I was so turned on it was getting painful. I could feel his was having the same problem. My hips started to grind against him and the friction felt so fucking good. I moaned into his mouth and Edward's lips traveled over my yaw and down my neck before settling on my collarbone.
I was panting and aching, wanting him to be closer and it got to be too much. I reached down to grab him in my hands. His hips bucked at me and he groaned against the base of my throat.
After pumping him a few slow times, I guided him towards my entrance and sank down on him. I gasped at the feeling and groaned as he was fully inside me. It always amazed me how deep he got me in this position.
Feeling impatient, Edward grabbed my hips and moved me as soon as he was inside. I placed my hands on his shoulders and started moving myself. There was nothing slow and somewhat sweet about this. This was purely animalistic and our grunts, groans, moans and pants all contributed to that.
"Fuck, Bella!" Edward panted and grabbed my ass to move me faster against him. My ability to say anything was gone. I could barely muster up a groan, let alone words. The sound of skin slapping together filled the room and if we hadn't been staying in a small house away from the rest of civilization, someone surely would have heard us.
I felt myself nearing the edge, just needing one more little push. It was like he heard my mind for Edward leaned forward and captured my nibble in his mouth and I came. Hard. We both cried out and I collapsed against him.
"Woa." Brilliant Bella! Edward chuckled.
"That's an understatement." I stayed on top of him for a few more moments before sliding facedown to rest on the bed.
This was turning out to be the best vacation ever!
AN: This is somewhat how I wanted all my characters to end up. In probably every single Twilight fanfic I have read, all of them get married and have many babies and live 'happily ever after'. That kind of makes me a little sick now. I personally don't' believe in marriage so I think it's hypocritical to haveall of them marry. And I don't really like kids either. They're just loud and make huge messes all the time. I'm way too childish to have a kid or to think of it.
I know some are disappointed. Can't have a story without it but I hope it was enough to quench some of the questions.
I am writing on a new story. Crime story. I was deeply influenced when I saw this move 'Message Deleted' the other day and I've always loved Criminal Minds. I'm going to read through it a few more times and hopefully, I'll get around to post it today.
