Wow. I knew that kissing Edward was going to be a pleasant experience but I never thought that it would be . . . well WOW! After crying and getting all upset about the Grandparents trying to take Anna from me I just wanted to forget all of my problems and obstacles. I didn't want to think about the 2 mortgages I had and the constant upkeep of the Diner. I didn't want to think about the upcoming battle for my tiny sister or the drama that Jake was dealing with over Leah and her ex-boyfriend Sam. I knew that if I kissed Edward that I would get so lost in it that I wouldn't have to worry about all of the weight on my shoulders.

But WOW! The first kiss you know the peanut butter kiss, just between you and me there was no peanut butter on his lip. I used that as an excuse and to judge how he would react to me kissing him. I was pleasantly surprised that he responded and I felt his face grow warm under my touch. I looked into his face and I never thought that blush on a guy could look so sexy and adorable at the same time.

After we settled in bed and I started kissing him and oh my god I can't tell you how wonderful it felt, I knew right then and there that he was going to get my V-Card. I was just trying to figure out how to go about our new found boundaries. I know I am not ready for a new relationship quite yet and I don't want to be some piece of ass to him like Shanira was. I want it to mean something to both of us. So with all of that A-Ha moment stuff swirling around in my mind I needed to set up some boundaries and walls over my heart before I made another move. So I figured kissing was definitely ok by me. And Edward seemed more than OK with us kissing, so that's where we would be for right now.

After kissing Edward I knew that I was going to have to call Rose and have her bring me to one of her Toy parties. I am definitely going to have to invest in some sort of vibrator or toy to tie me over until I'm ready to hand my V-Card over to Edward. I now had to wake up and deal with reality and face all of my problems head on. First on the list was getting Anna up and ready for school, so I woke up slowly and saw that Edward was sound asleep under my body. I hadn't realized just how comfortable it was to fall asleep on him. Who needs a bed and mattress when you have an Edward? I chuckled softly to myself as I slowly got up and made my way to the bathroom.

Edward was still asleep when I came back from dropping Anna off at school so I decided to wake him up with a kiss of course. I crawled back into the bed and placed my hand against his cheek. I felt his body shift a little and his face turned into the palm of my hand I felt his hot breath against my skin. His lips puckered out a bit and kissed my palm softly and then he nuzzled his face into my hand and sighed deeply before settling back down. I stared at him for a little while and then leaned over to place a soft kiss on his cheek. He didn't respond.

I slowly turned his face with my hand and placed soft chaste kisses across his face and finally landing on his lips. I sucked gently on his bottom lip and then his top. I felt his body stir under my touch and he shifted slightly. I opened my eyes to see that his were closed and he looked relaxed. I continued to kiss his lips and suck lightly on them until I felt his arms encircle me completely and squeeze me tight against him. I let out a small gasp of hair against his face.

Edward quickly flipped us over and he was hovering over my body kissing my neck and behind my ear. My entire body shivered when his warm breath spread across my neck and down my spine. I felt his strong fingers graze up and down my sides gently as he continued to nip and suck on my neck. I couldn't help the moan that escaped my lips and the involuntary thrust that my hips did to try and meet his pelvis.

I opened my eyes and tried to regain some composure. I ran my fingers lightly through his hair and rested my hands at the nape of his neck.

"Good morning sleepy head." I said startling him.

"Mmm Hmm" He replied nuzzling his face in my neck and pressing his body against mine.

We laid there for a few minutes and I thought he had fallen back asleep because he wasn't moving and his body felt like dead weight on top of me. I ran my fingers through his hair trying unsuccessfully to get it to behave or at least stay in one direction. I giggled softly as I looked down at his head on my chest and realized that I had just made his hair worse instead of fixing it. Edward's body pressed hard into mine as he raised himself up on his arms and looked down at me and into my eyes. I smiled up at him with a big cheesy grin. We hadn't really talked about our kisses or anything yet and I was a little afraid he was going to be upset that I had changed our relationship without discussing it with him.

What if he didn't like me the way I thought he did? What if he wasn't ready? What if I was just a rebound from Shamira?

All of those doubts went out of the window when he leaned down and pressed a soft kiss against my lips and sucked my bottom lip into his mouth. I couldn't help but smile as I let him nip and suck on my lip. He wanted me in the same way that I wanted him. I was more than ecstatic. I glanced over at the clock and saw that it was now 9am and I was pretty sure that he had a 9:45 class so I reluctantly pulled away from him.

"Don't you have to be in class in 45 minutes?" I asked shyly hoping to got that I was wrong and that he would just stay in bed and kiss me all day.

"Shit." Is all he said as he leapt up from the bed and ran up the stairs to his room.

I sighed heavily and heaved my body off of the bed and made my way downstairs still in my Edward induced high. I put on some coffee and made a quick omlette and wrapped it in a tortilla in some foil. I made Edward's coffee the way he liked it and poured it in his JHU travel mug that was in the dish drainer. I heard the shower turn off and then loud footsteps running across the hardwood floor upstairs. I sighed and leaned against the wall waiting for the tornado that was about to tear through the living room.

I glanced at the clock on the microwave as I heard Edward's footsteps thumping down the 2 flights of stairs from his room and it read 9:36 am. I knew it was only 2 blocks away and that he could make it and it would just take longer if I drove him. Edward reached the bottom of the stairs and tossed his book bag over his shoulders after giving me a huge grin.

"Coffee?" I asked.

"Thanks." Edward accepted the coffee and kissed me sweetly on the cheek.

"Breakfast?" I asked.

"Yeah, wow thanks Bella." And another sweet kiss on the cheek.

"ID?" I asked. He of course being in a rush left his ID on the key holder by the door.

"I'd be lost without you thanks Bella, I'll see tonight. Love you." And he quickly ran out the door.

It took me a moment to realize what he had said and I couldn't help the enormous grin that spread across my face. I quickly ran to the window to watch him run down the street and I could see him a few yards from the bottom steps and he stopped mid step and froze. I pulled away from the window just in time to see his bright red cheeks turn and his eyes glance back at the house. He must have just realized what he said as well. I peeked through the curtains to see the expression on his face. He looked nervous and happy. Edward was sporting that adorably sexy blush and a small grin on his face. He glanced at the 2nd story window, I am assuming that it was my bedroom and he smiled wider and then ran down the street taking a bite of his omlette.

I took a deep breath and flung myself on the sofa and replayed every second of this morning over and over in my mind. The kiss was amazing, the snuggling was awesome and the "Love you" was simply knee weakening.
