DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS FROM TWILIGHT. THEY ALL BELONG TO STEPHENIE MEYER.
I did promise you that I'd update after I'd finished "Saving Edward", so here's another chapter for you :D
I woke up the next morning to find myself in the living room of the boys house. What am I doing here? I wondered and then I remembered lying down on the couch with Edward, settling down to watch a movie and then falling asleep a little less than half way through. I wasn't really bothered though. I didn't have a clue what the movie was, all I knew was that it was from the boy's extensive collection, so I knew that it wasn't likely to be a film that would hold my interest for very long. Especially with Edward lying just beside me.
I looked around at the room to see that none of the others had woken up yet. But then again, had I really expected any of them to be awake? Alice maybe, but Jazz, Em and Rose, not a chance. Emmett and Rosalie were still entwined on the sofa and Alice had climbed into Jasper's lap at some point in the night and they were both curled up in the chair. Boy were those two going to be stiff when they woke up. I shifted and turned my head around so I could see behind me and I saw that Edward was still asleep. I turned myself around fully so I could look at him, and in doing so his arm that was around my waist tensed and held me close to him. It was a subconscious action because his breathing indicated that he was still asleep.
He looked so peaceful. His features were perfect and relaxed, his long eyelashes casting slight shadows underneath his eyes, his hair even more tousled than it normally was. The only thing that was disappointing about watching him sleep was the fact that I couldn't see him gorgeous green eyes. Those eyes that made my breath hitch, and made me go weak at the knees just glancing at them. The eyes that could get me to agree to anything. I loved the way his lips were turned into a slight smile as he slept. He was obviously having or had just had a good dream of some sort. At least I like to think so. I hated to think that he would ever have nightmares.
Even though it was the last thing I wanted to do, I tried to sit up and detach myself from his grasp, but I found myself unable to do so as his arm tightened around my waist even further. He stirred slightly as I managed to turn myself so that I was lying on my back. This was hard to do because every time I moved, the grasp on my waist would increase ever so slightly, even though it was not enough to hurt me or hinder my breathing in anyway.
"Going somewhere, love?" I heard a sleepy mumble from next to me. I turned my head to look at him and saw that he had his eyes half-open and was watching me sleepily, but intently.
"Well, actually, yeah I wanted to get up and stretch a bit." I answered him, placing a soft kiss on the end of his nose, causing him to smile.
"Well," He stretched slightly and I could feel all of the muscles in his chest, stomach and arms flexing. I could barely contain myself at the sensation of his muscles underneath my hands. I had to remember that we were in a living room and not in his bedroom. "I'm afraid that I can't let you do that." He smiled at me sleepily.
"And why not exactly?" I asked, pouting at him, causing him to laugh at me. I could feel his chest moving as he did so, and I have to say, the muscles in his chest moving against my body felt extremely good. In a way it was relaxing, but in others it was making me feel even more awake than ever.
"Because then I'd have to let you go." He slid his other arm underneath me and hugged me to him even more. "And I don't feel like doing that any time soon."
I sighed, resigning myself to the idea that I wasn't going anywhere any time soon. But then again I wasn't really complaining. I was in the arms of a Greek God, able to explore parts of him that I knew that not many, if anybody else had done. I wasn't really sure on how many girlfriends he'd had, but then again, doing what he did as a job, it was bound to be quite a few, even if they weren't from college. That thought scared me a bit. I had only had one other relationship and I hadn't even gone that far with him. We hadn't gone further than kissing so I was a bit inexperienced in that whole area. I would have to talk to Alice and Rose about it later, much to my own chagrin. Even though I would be deeply embarrassed at the fact that I had to ask my friends for advice, I didn't want to make a complete fool out of myself when we finally got to that level in our relationship.
I settled my head down on his chest and listened to his heartbeat, my head rising and falling with the pattern of his rhythmic breathing. He chuckled as I sighed and closed my eyes, enjoying the moment, listening to his heart, knowing that, for the moment at least, that it was mine.
"Still going right?" He asked, his voice showing that he was clearly amused. I nodded my head and sighed blissfully again. "Well, that's good to know." I smiled as he kissed me on the top of my head. "What time is it?" He asked and I looked at my watch.
"It's 7:43AM," I groaned and buried my face into his chest, as he chuckled.
"Well I don't think these four are going to be awake any time soon, so do you want to go back to sleep here or we can move into my room." I looked up at him, and he must have seen the slight shock on my face. "No, no, no, I didn't mean.....I meant to sleep. My bed's a lot comfier than the couch." I let out a breath that I didn't realise I had even been holding in. He placed a hand on my cheek lovingly. "I wouldn't ever expect anything from you that you're not ready for." He placed a gentle kiss on my forehead. What the hell did I do to deserve someone like him?
"Then I vote the bed." I whispered, giggling and he chuckled, kissing me gently on the forehead, running his hands through my hair softly, casuing me to sigh into his chest again. I knew that we were supposed to be meeting my friends at some point today, but at this moment in time I really couldn't bring myself to detach myself from Edward's embrace and find out when. It seemed like too much hassle just to move at the moment.
Before I knew it he had sat up, placed one hand underneath my knees, one under my back, stood up and was carrying me bridal style up the stairs and into his bedroom. Lifting me seemed to cause him no effort at all, unless he was just masking it very well, and after seeing his personality flips between college and the bar, I knew that that was a distinct possibilty. I didn't want to risk hurting him at all.
"Hey," I complained, wriggling slightly. "I can walk you know."
"I know." He smiled his crooked smile at me. The one that he knew I couldn't resist and I had a hard time not melting there and then. I turned away from him, so that his smile wouldn't have the usual effect on me and he chuckled again. "I want to carry you. Now, stop wriggling or your face is going to meet the floor." As soon as he said this I stopped my struggling and he grinned. Somehow he managed to open the door, walk through it and close it again before he placed me gently on the bed.
"I'm not going to break you know." I giggled and to prove this point, I grabbed his shirt before he had a chance to straighten up and pulled him on top of me, crushing my lips to his and wrapping my arms around his neck so that he couldn't wriggle free. I heard him chuckle against my lips as he regained his composure and broke the kiss. I pouted at him again and he kissed me lightly on the end of my nose. He broke free of my arms and rolled over onto the bed next to me.
"Did you want something a little comfier to sleep in for the next couple of hours?" He asked and I nodded. My jeans were a little uncomfortable and he rolled off of the bed and handed me the Metallica t-shirt and sweatpants that I had worn the last time to change into. I took them, kissed the bottom of his jaw and walked into the bathroom, to get changed. I quickly changed and folded up my clothes, running my fingers through my hair to try and get it to behave. I gave up pretty soon as it made it clear that there was no way that it was going to cooperate.
I walked back out into Edward's bedroom to find him lying there on the bed, shirtless, wearing a pair of plain black pyjama bottoms. I grinned to myself and crept around the bed. He didn't stir, and I wasn't fully aware of whether or not he knew that I was there or what I was doing. If he did then he made a pretty good show of pretending he didn't. I leaned down over him and pressed a soft kiss to his lips and felt him kissing me back. Suddenly I felt a pair of arms around my waist, flinging me over him and onto the bed. I giggled when he broke free of my kiss and started to trail kisses up and down my neck, gently sucking on my earlobe on the way back up. I gasped audibly and I felt him smile as he continued to nip, suck and lick my earlobe and in the slight hollow of my jaw.
My hands had somehow found their way into his hair as he made his way down my neck, gently kissing, sucking, licking and nipping at my flesh, earning several more moans and gasps from me as he reached my collarbone. His hands had made their way to my waist and he was gently running his fingers over my stomach and up my sides, tentatively reaching higher and higher underneath my shirt as he went. I felt my heartrate increase as my breathing became harder.
My hands left his hair and made their way down his chest and to his sides. I pulled him on top of my as I began to kiss and bite at his shoulder gently, earning barely audible moans from him. I ran my hands up and down his back, gently pressing my nails into the soft flesh of his back. This earned a slightly louder moan from him and I grinned, pleased that I had found something that gave me that reaction. I moaned again as I felt his fingers gently brush the sensitive flesh of my breast and pulled him up so that I could kiss him again. I brought his face down to meet mine as his hand crept around my back and he held me close to him.
I took this opportunity to push my chest into his as hard as I could as I took him by surprise and flipped him over so that I was on top, straddling him. I grinned against his lips as I broke free and began trailing kisses down his jaw, moving onto his neck and moving slowly and gently down his chest, teasing him cruelly as I went. I slowly pulled myself back up to press my lips to his shoulder, kissing and nipping at his collarbone as I did, just as he had done with me. I heard him moan quietly and I inched my way back up his neck, kissing the underneath of his jaw, slowly and gently. Deciding that he had had enough of that, he took my face in between his hands and pulled my face down to meet his, crushing his lips to mine. I felt his tongue brush against my lip and I parted my lips slightly. I felt his tongue in my mouth almost immediately and I kissed him back with the same amount of force as he was kissing me.
I took his hands in mine and laid them down either side of his head, effectively pinning them there as I sat on top of him, kissing him feverishly. Even though he and I both knew that he could break free of my grasp whenever he felt like it, he never made any move to, leaving his hands and arms where they were underneath mine. Hmmm, I thought. If I knew that he was going to be this submissive then I would have asked Alice and Rose for some advice in that area. I could feel myself blushing as that thought passed through my mind. I could really do that, could I? Maybe, maybe not.
We both jumped as someone started banging on the door. From the sounds of it, it could have been Emmett but then there was a small, high-pitched voice that I knew Emmett could only achieve if he was kicked extremely hard in the family jewels.
"EDWARD! BELLA! Don't think we don't know what you're doing in there!" Alice cried as I heard Rosalie giggling and Emmett and Jasper laughing. We both looked at the door and then back at each other and started laughing.
I kissed Edward passionately before I slid off of him and lay down on the bed.
"Ed! Get your ass out here, before I have to come in and drag you out!" Emmett yelled. Edward looked confused. He obviously didn't understand what Emmett would need to talk to him about, but he slid off of the bed anyway, went over to his drawers and took out a plain dark blue t-shirt that was in one of them.
Walking over to me, he obviously saw my disappointed expression as he leaned down and kissed me passionately once more, placing his hands either side of my face as my hands made their way to his hair. He broke away and smiled at me. "Later." He whispered and I smiled at him.
Watching him as he walked out of the room, I couldn't help but grin to myself.
Later, indeed. I thought as Alice and Rose bounded into the room after Edward had left, grins on their faces.
I would be holding him to that.
I'm sorry for having to make you guys wait for so long for a new chapter of this story but I really wanted to finish "Saving Edward" before I updated on this one.
I hope that this chapter was worth the wait.
Please review and lemme know. :D
