I'm so so so so so so sorry. Please read chapter. I'll explain at bottom.
I packed up the last box and looked around the apartment. It had been two weeks since Christmas. As soon as we got back from his parents house, Edward was eager for Jaden and I to move in with him.
"Bella, you ready to go?" Edward peeked his head into my bedroom.
"Yeah, this is the last box," I replied. Edward wrapped his arms around my waist, "It feels strange leaving here. I know I've only been here for less than a year, but its my home."
"You know you don't have to move in with me if you really don't want to."
"I do. Don't get me wrong, " I turned around to face him, "I just can't believe that my life has changed from being so shitty to absolutely perfect in such a short time."
Edward leaned down to kiss me, "I love you so much Bella. I want to be there for you and for Jaden. I want to treat you like the princess you are."
"I love you too," I whispered against his lips as I kissed him.
After a couple more minutes Edward carried the last box down to the car and I locked the door behind us. I brought the keys down to the landlord and climbed into the front seat on Edwards volvo. He had hooked up his car to a small trailer which currently held all of mine and Jaden's belongings which weren't currently already at Edwards. Rose had already strapped Jaden into his car seat and Maya in her crate and we were finally ready to go.
"You better invite us over soon," Rose said as she pulled me into a hug.
"Your coming over for dinner tomorrow night," I laughed.
"Oh yeah. Well call us if you need help moving in."
"Thanks Rose, bye Emmett," I gave her another hug and got in the car. Ten minutes of driving went by before I realized that we were going in the wrong direction of his apartment, "Edward, where are we going?"
"Uh, home is like twenty minutes in the opposite direction," where was he taking us?
"No its not," he shrugged.
"Edward… what did you do?" I turned to look at him. He had a smug grin plastered on his face.
We soon entered the Bridgeport area of Chicago five minutes later. The skyscrapers were downing in numbers and there was more green (well snow) spaces. The houses were bigger out here and actually had backyards. It was the perfect place to raise a family. Two minutes later we pulled into the driveway of a large brick house. It was beautiful. With two white pillars at the entrance and a large front yard I was sure it was the biggest house in the neighborhood.
"Welcome home," Edward smiled as he climbed out of the car.
"Wha… did… did you buy this place?" I stuttered while climbing out myself. He came around to my side with Jaden in his arms. I had gotten Maya in her crate out of the car on my side.
"So what do you think?" He asked as he wrapped an arm around my waist.
"I think that you should stop teasing me and take us to your apartment," I looked up at him.
"There is no more apartment. I sold it last week. I bought this house about a month ago. I slowly started moving some things from my place but I mostly had my mom help design the place. She picked out all the furniture," Edward began to pull me up to the the driveway and into the house.
"Which is why you wouldn't let me take any of it from my apartment," I stated.
"I'm actually surprised I pulled this off without you finding out," he leaned down to kiss me but I stepped away from him.
"Oh no mister, I want to see the house first," I opened the door and stepped into the foyer. Once I placed Maya on the ground I looked around the home. Right away I could tell it was open concept. To my right was the dining room with what looked like a archway to the family room. To my left was living room and an archway to the kitchen. Basically it was a large square with the kitchen and family room covering the entire back of the house. The stairs were near the front door and led to a small landing. The stairs to the left took you up to another landing that had three bedrooms off of it. The stairs to the right led to our master bedroom which almost took up half of the top floor. Edward followed me as I went on my little tour around the house making small comments on where Liz got the furniture from or why she painted areas certain colours. When we made our way back down to the family room I put Jaden on the ground and basically attacked Edward, "I love it!"
"I'm so glad!" He pulled me in for another kiss and lifted me off the ground, "I was so nervous that you wouldn't like it."
"What would you have done if I hadn't liked it?" I decided to ask, almost afraid of the answer.
"I would have put it on the market and let you pick the home yourself," he replied.
"Of course you would have," I rolled my eyes and pulled him in for another kiss. Jaden then pulled himself up using my pant leg so I reached down to pick him up, "Look at this Jaden. Its our new home. Your going to have so much fun here baby."
"Mama," was his 11 month old reply. I laughed and blew a raspberry on his cheek, "So I suppose we should start unpacking."
"Yeah I guess we should," we walked outside and let Jaden play in the snow while we started to unload the trailer. He didn't stay there for long though.
"Jaden where are you going?" Edward asked as he started to walk to towards us. Once he reached us he held up his hands like he wanted to help, "Alright buddy, how about you carry this inside for us," he handed Jaden Maya's empty food and water bowls.
It took us about two hours to unload and put away most of the things that we had brought from the apartment. All of Jaden's clothes and toys were put away in his room and Edward and I had unpacked our clothes. The only things we still had to do were family pictures, books, and other little nick nacks. We had already donated all our plates, glasses, utensils, majority of the furniture, and the kitchen table to the women's shelter downtown.
It was hard to believe that Edward had done all this for us. I was dishing out deep dish pizza in our new kitchen for Edward and myself while I cooked mashed carrots and ham for Jaden. We sat in the family room after dinner on the floor with Jaden and enjoyed spending time together as a family. He was so fascinated with all the new toys that Liz and Kathy had bought for him.
After Edward put Jaden to bed we made our way up to our new room for an early night. Mine and Edwards physical relationship had slowly started to progress in the past couple weeks. We still hadn't had sex but I was hoping to change that tonight.
"Are you tired?" I asked Edward from the bathroom. Alice had bought me a way to short black teddy lingerie type thing as a Christmas gift. Up until now I was too afraid to use it. I suddenly had a burst of confidence and a revelation that truly told me that Edward would never hurt me.
"I am actually," he crawled under the covers in his boxers and a t-shirt.
"Well thats too bad," I said. I walked out of the bathroom and put my arm over my head resting on the frame of the door and the other arm on my waist, jutting my hip out in the process.
Edward immediately sat up in the bed, not knowing what to do. He slowly closed his eyes and rubbed the bridge of his nose.
"Bella," he said slowly, "I love you but I don't think you can sleep in this bed like that. Please… please go change. If you come over here I won't be able to hold myself back."
"That's what I'm planning on," I grinned and walked over to the side of the bed.
"Are you sure?" he whispered, slowly lifting his hand up to touch my body.
"Yes," I smiled and leaned down to kiss him. He pulled me into him and we laid there making out for a couple minutes. It wasn't until I tried to pull his t-shirt over his head that he protested.
"Bella I need to know that you are 100% positive that you are ready to do this. I don't want to scare you. I promise that we can go slow. I just need to know that you are ready."
Once again, I'm so so so so so sorry. I have had a crazy couple of years. Upon graduating high school I went to Kenya (1 week), Tanzania (3 1/2 months), and Switzerland (1 week) for four months in September of 2010. I worked and worked all summer to save for the trip. Once I got back I worked and worked for 8 months straight and literally had 15 hour days. Now I am a freshmen in university (which is kind of weird that now I have time when exams start for me on tuesday, oooppps) I am very sorry. And I promise you that you won't have to wait two years again for another update.
