My head felt like it was going to explode from lack of oxygen. I broke away from Edward, breathing heavily. I realized I had ended up with my back against the door, with him pressed closely to me. As if finally noticing our position, Edward quickly backed away from me to the closet. "Um, are you tired? We're going to be leaving pretty early tomorrow morning, so maybe you should get some sleep." He disappeared into the closet before I could answer, so I went to follow him. He was bending over unzipping a suitcase, giving me a very nice view of his rear end. "What are you doing?" I asked. He stood up, holding some clothes and a black bag. "This," he said while handing me the bag, "is for you. Pajamas, I assume." He had a weird uncomfortable look on his face. I walked closer to him. "Edward, what's wrong?" He subconsciously glanced down, then responded, "Nothing is wrong, Bella. Why don't you go change into your pajamas?" I looked down to see what he had glanced at. "Oh!" I blurted. Well that would explain the uncomfortable look. "Um, that's..I mean you're, uh, well," I stammered awkwardly. Edward let out a small laugh. "My apologies, love. You're just too tempting for your own good tonight." I blushed and nervously bit my lip. Edward sighed and wrapped his arms around my waist, his lips lowering to my ear. "And that is definitely not helping stop this situation." He pulled back to look at me. I took a deep breath, trying to muster all of my courage. "Well, what if I don't want to stop the situation?" And with that, I reached up and kissed him. I put my hands on his chest, spreading my fingers to feel the muscles there. Then a thought occured to me. More like a plan, actually. "Wait!" I gasped. He pulled away abruptly, startled. "What is it, Bella?" he said, obviously worried. "I want to change into my pajamas." He looked slightly confused, but responded, "Okay, I'll change too, then." I grabbed my bag and walked out of the closet, Edward close behind me. "Um, one more thing," I said with my back to him. "Can you help unzip my dress? I had trouble reaching it earlier, and I don't want to rip it or anything." He waited a moment before answering, "Of course." I felt his hands brush my hair over my shoulders, lingering a little longer than necessary. Not that I minded, though. He then started to pull at my zipper, going slowly. I knew the moment my lacy black bra was visible, because of his sharp intake of breath. I can't imagine why, I was only wearing the skimpiest/sexiest strapless bra Victoria's Secret made, courtesy of Alice. He kept unzipping, finally reaching the end of the zipper. "There you go," he said, his voice sounding strained. I could feel that the top of my matching lace thong was visible as well. Usually I'm nowhere near this revealing and flat out ho-ish, but something about being in Italy with Edward, just us, brought out the braver side of me. I looked over my shoulder and smiled. "I'll be right back."

Once I was inside the bathroom, I anxiously opened the black bag. My jaw dropped as I took in the contents of the bag. It was a mass of black lace and black satin. Taking a deep breath, I changed into the lingerie. It was a black satin babydoll with a very deep neckline, trimmed in lace. It barely covered my butt. And I mean barely. The top made me look like I had some cleavage, so that was good. 'You can do this,' I thought. I tousled my hair a bit, and reapplied some of the lip gloss I had on earlier. Once I was as confident as I was going to get, I cracked the door of the bathroom and peeked out. Edward was lying on the bed in a pair of dark grey pajama pants, which did nothing to hide his very obvious, uh, situation. He looked up at the sound of me opening the door. I shook my hair out a little more, then opened the door. Edward just stared at me, his eyes wide and mouth slightly parted. Then, before I could blink, he was beside me, then I was lying on the bed with him hovering over me. "Those are your pajamas?" he asked. Blushing, I nodded. "What do you think?" His eyes turned as black as coal, and he smirked. He leaned down and kissed me, much rougher than usual. I moved my hands to his head, where my fingers tangled in his hair. My legs wrapped tightly around his waist, earning a moan from Edward. I could feel how much he liked my outfit. Suddenly he detached his lips from mine, breathing heavily. "Bella, you know we can' know." I was breathing just as heavily. "I know, but we don't have to go all the way, Edward." He was about to protest when I placed a hand over his mouth. "Edward. Don't argue. Obviously you want to," I said, motioning down to show just how obvious it was. He let out a breath. "Well of course I want to, Bella, you're beautiful and I love you. But I just don't kno-" I cut him off with another kiss. He chuckled and said, "You are the most stubborn person I've ever met." He lowered his face closer and his lips met mine again. I pushed on his stomach, urging him to lay back. I climbed on his lap, straddling him. His hands were roaming all over my body. "I love you," I breathed. Edward smiled, his hands stopping their exploration for a moment. "I love you, too, Bella."

I woke up to hands gently stroking my hair off my face. "Wake up, love, we have to leave soon." I sleepily muttered something unintelligible back. Edward laughed and wrapped his arms around me. He then got out of bed, taking me with him. "Hey!" I protested, giggling. He sat me down in one of the chairs in the dining room. "Breakfast?" he asked. I nodded eagerly. I was starving after all of our, uh, physical activity last night. He sat next to me as I ate the french toast he'd ordered for me from room service. When I was done, I went to take a quick shower before we left. In the shower I thought back to last night. That was the farthest Edward and I had ever gotten, and no we did not do "it". However, I was pretty pleased with how the night had gone. I'll have to thank Alice for the wardrobe when we got back.

"I think you have a text message," Edward told me when I came back out. I dug around my purse until my phone, and opened it.

1 New Message from Alice.

Ur welcome ;) I knew u'd love it!

Laughing, I hit reply.

Wow, u must be psychic! :)

I heard a small whoosh, and then Edward was behind me, his arms snaking around my waist, his lips at my ear. "Are you ready to go?" I turned around so I was facing him, a fake pout on my face. "Let's just stay here, we don't have to go back to Forks." Edward chuckled and hugged me. "I wish we could, love. But I'm rather tired of Italian men drooling over you." I smiled up at him. "Yeah, you've gotten more than a few droolers yourself, Italian women and men." We both started laughing, only to be interrupted by a knock on the door. Edward went to open it, and we were greeted by a hotel employee. "Ciao, signore, your jet has arrived. I have come to handle your luggage." Edward nodded, and turned to take my hand. I grabbed my purse, and soon we were out the door.

We spent the plane ride back watching movies, talking, and kissing. Mainly kissing, though. After last night in the hotel, its like we couldn't keep our hands off of each other, which is definitely a good thing. Before I knew it, we were getting ready to land. I was trying to straighten out my clothes and my hair to look like I did not just have a hot makeout session with my extremely hot boyfriend. Getting off the jet, we were greeted by the entire Cullen family. Alice was bouncing up and down, clearly excited to see us back. The moment I was off the stairs she ran over to me squealing and giggling, giving me a huge hug. I didn't realize how much I missed her! "Soo," she said, "How was it?" I smiled as Edward put an arm around my shoulders. "That had to be the best trip I've ever taken." I smiled up at Edward. He winked at me then replied, "Yes, we will definitely be making another visit there soon."

So, I'd still really love some reviews. Should I keep this going? Or should I wrap it up? LET ME KNOW, PEOPLE!

heheh, thank you! I appreciate everyone who did review. That really does speed up the writing processs and gets things updated faster!
