Bella woke up disoriented. She lifted the hand resting on her hip to rub her eyes and found a blindfold. Everything that had happened yesterday came rushing back. She put her hand back where it was and tried to take stock of what she had missed while she had slept. She realized just a little late in her early morning haze that her head wasn't on a pillow but on someone. She also had her other arm flung over said person. Said person also had the best set of abs Bella had ever felt. She quickly reevaluated her imaginary Edward again. And he was taller, not wider, than she had imagined. She felt him start awake. He stilled instantly feeling her seemingly asleep almost on top of him. He pushed her hair back from her face softly. Bella leaned her head into his hand involuntarily. She sighed quietly. His hand stilled. Bella yawned widely and stretched.
"Good morning Bella." Edward said quietly. Bella crossed her arms over her stomach.
"Good morning Edward." She whispered. She bit her lip as she wondered when he would let her go home. She didn't have to go back to the office until Monday, but her phone would probably explode and her email inbox would most likely crash before then.
"I think it is time for breakfast. I'll be back. Don't move." He told her softly. Bella heard him walk out of the room and down a flight of stairs. Bella stretched again like a cat and flop over on her stomach. She had to kind of like him like this. She tried to concentrate on the fact he kidnapped her and tied her up and still had a blindfold on.
"Bella! Wake up Bella." Bella sat up with a start. Edward was shaking her gently. She pushed a hand through her hair. Edward placed something on her lap. He put his hands at her waist and pushed her back against the headboard. He pulled at the blindfold until it was loose against her neck. By the time she had blinked enough to get used to the light again he was gone. She looked around but couldn't find him. She looked down at her lap and found a tray with eggs and toast, fruit and a steaming mug of tea. She picked up the tea and took a sip. He knew how she took her tea. She wasn't sure at this point whether things like that were frightening or sweet. She ate quickly and surveyed the room. It was flawless. The bed was a beautiful cherry that matched the bureau, two similar dressers, and a stand with a flat screen. Everything was a soft green wit small touches of blue here and there. Either he had a sister, or she had cause to worry about the man. She got up and set the tray on a cherry bedside table. There were only two pictures in the room. One was of a tiny black haired woman with her arms around the waist of an attractive blond man. They were looking at each other, not the camera, and the way they felt about each other was clear. She studied the man in the picture and decided quickly that it wasn't Edward. He was taller than Edward by about three inches. She moved her gaze to the woman and gasped as she realized who it was. Alice Cullen Whitlock. She had designed all of the offices in Bella's building. She was a genius.
"You know my Pixie?" Edward was suddenly behind her. He slipped his arms around her waist and held her tightly. She wasn't sure this was to hold her rather than to keep her from seeing him. Bella nodded. She leaned back against him.
"She designed all the offices in the building I work in. How…?" She asked.
"Alice is my sister. That was taken the day Jasper asked her to marry him. She freaked." Edward said with a laugh. It was clear he loved his sister very much. Bella thought for a moment. Edward Cullen, she'd heard the name before. But where?
"What are you thinking?" Edward asked quietly, tightening his arms slightly.
"I was trying to figure you out, actually." She said quietly. His arms tightened almost painfully. He leaned down and kissed the back of her neck. He nibbled on her skin making her moan quietly. She put her hands over his, splayed on her stomach.
"What exactly are you trying to figure out?" He asked. The edge was back.
"Don't do that." She said quietly. He smirked coldly against her neck.
"Don't do what, little whore?" He asked.
"Don't try to be threatening. Don't ruin it." She whispered. He paused.
"My God, Bella! I kidnapped you, hurt you on purpose, what am I ruining by acting like a kidnapper and rapist?" He asked his voice normal again. He sounded annoyed.
"I don't know! I just, oh, I don't know! I'm sure that I know you from somewhere Edward, but I can't remember for the life of me. God, Edward why couldn't you just talk to me! Why couldn't you have, oh, I don't know, called me? Why did you have to do all of this? Why make it this complicated?" Bella broke down bringing her hands to her eyes to rub away the tears now falling freely.
"Bella, please, don't cry. I'm sorry!" He pulled her around and hugged her tight. He let her cry herself dry on his chest while he rubbed circles into her back and played with her hair. Bella sniffed twice and pulled away. She looked up into his face and her jaw dropped. She shut it quickly, but all she could think was: Oh my god, over and over. His hair was still mussed from sleep and his emerald eyes threatened to drown her. And then it hit her. Edward Cullen. Of course! She closed her eyes and sighed.
"Edward Cullen row three seat seven right next to Rose. She asked you out in second semester and you said no. She put your picture on a dart board and now she's dating your older brother Emmett. She still won't talk to you unless he makes her. You were the only one who got a higher score on the final that year than me. Professor Miles thought you cheated and they launched a whole big investigation that ended with him being fired and you switching majors." Bella recited quietly. His jaw dropped.
"You knew…You noticed…I…Bella." Edward stammered. Bella hugged him.
"I have a feeling your brothers will probably kill you when you ruin their reputations with this whole kidnapping and rape drama." Bella said. Edward laughed.
"Yes they will definitely kill me. When this whole thing comes out that is."
"And when would that be?" Bella asked with a smirk.
"Well probably when I let you go and you tell the police." Edward said.
"And that would be when?" Bella asked holding her breath.
"You have work on Monday. I guess the police will come Tuesday." Edward said trying to keep his voice light. She hugged him tighter and felt a laugh bubble up.
"Why are you laughing at me? You find my imprisonment humorous, little whore?" He growled low in his chest and it was easily the sexiest sound Bella had ever heard. He suddenly picked her up and threw her over his shoulder. She laughed uncontrollably. It was a whole lot easier to enjoy being kidnapped now that she knew who it was kidnapping her. He flung her down on the bed and flopped on top of her.
"I'm sorry I kidnapped you Bella." He whispered against her neck.
"I'm not." She whispered back. He looked up at her. He leaned down scanning her eyes, looking for something. Bella met him there and pressed her lips to his. He pushed against her lips almost desperately. Bella tilted her head as he ran his fingers into her hair. He licked her bottom lip and she moaned into his mouth. He pushed his tongue into her mouth. She sucked his tongue greedily and pushed back. Edward moaned into her mouth and she felt it in the other one. He moved back to her neck and she tried to catch her breath. She pushed her hands into his hair and ran her fingers through it with a moan. He had to have the damn sexiest hair she'd ever seen, felt. He bit down on her neck and she whimpered. She let go of his hair and started pulling at the buttons on his shirt. She shoved it down his arms and reached out trembling hands to his chest. She ran her hands over his abs and loved how his muscles contracted at her touch. She moved her hands lower and pried his jeans off. He pulled the hem of his tee shirt up to her arms. She lifted them up and he threw it aside. She used her feet to push his boxers to the floor by his jeans. He brought his lips back to hers and pushed her back down to the pillows. He started to kiss his way down the path he'd made yesterday. She flipped them and started to make her own path down his washboard abs. She made her way down to the dips. She licked down them both. He moaned loudly making Bella smirk. She went lower and the smirk grew. She placed a tiny kiss on the very tip. He moaned again and his breathing became erratic. She slipped just the tip into her mouth and bit down gently. His moan became her name. She slid her mouth gently down on top of him, painfully slow. She bobbed her head twice and pulled back. She ran her tongue up the underside all the way to the tip. She pulled him all the way back in and relaxed her throat to get as much of him as possible. She hollowed out her cheeks and sucked hard on him. She swirled her tongue around him happily. She pulled her teeth against him, bringing her head back up before slamming back down on him and biting down hard.
"Bella! Ah, fuck!" His cock twitched once before he exploded down her throat. She took all he had to give her and hummed her pleasure. "Damn Bella." He whispered hoarsely. He pulled her up to him and crushed his lips to hers. He forced his tongue into her mouth roughly. She brought her own up to meet his and sucked on it. They both moaned at the action. She ran her fingers through his sexy bronze hair and pulled gently. His hand ghosted over her body and began massaging her clit with steady motions. She whimpered against his lips and felt the smirk that appeared. He pressed hard and she moaned. He started rubbing her furiously. His hand moved at an almost impossible speed, rubbing her clit hard enough to hurt. Suddenly he pinched her button and twisted.
"Edward! Fuck!" She screamed breaking away from his lips. She came hard over the fingers he slid far enough to catch her. She watched with hooded eyes as he sucked her off his fingers. She groaned at the site and rolled over full on top of him. She kissed him hard and grabbed his rock hard cock. He hissed at the touch and moaned as she brought the tip to her dripping hole. She sank down on him fast. He groaned and she screamed. He filled her completely, stretching her impossibly. She didn't wait to adjust to him though. She pulled herself off, ignoring his protest, and threw herself back onto his waiting cock.
"Bella…ungh…so fucking tight." Edward managed to get out. His hips bucked into hers as she crashed down on him again. He flipped them over and thrust deep into her.
"Shit! Edward, harder!" She cried out. He pulled almost completely out of her before slamming into her with enough force to send her into the headboard. He didn't stop his rough motions until she was beyond words and was moaning unintelligibly. Then he pulled her legs up around his back and entered her again going the deepest yet. She screamed and threw her hips against his as her muscles clenched around him. The tightness of her as she orgasmed around him threw him over the edge. He thrust once more calling her name as he buried his seed in her. He collapsed on top of her. She wrapped her arms around him and played with his hair. He flipped them and held her against his chest and murmured her name. She looked up as his eyes filled with amusement.
"I take it you won't be pressing charges then?" He asked with a smile. She laughed and kissed him softly.
"No you idiot. I should though. You should have just asked Rose for my number or something, crazy." She laughed. He had the grace to look sheepish.
"I was going to, but I saw you yesterday and couldn't help myself. I kept telling myself that you wouldn't actually be interested in me and that was the only way I could have you, if only for a little while."
"So, what comes now?" Bella asked. She couldn't let go of him now. She'd only really known him for a day, but she was already envisioning white dresses and churches. She had fallen for this big idiot in less than twenty four hours.
"Well, we both have work on Monday. That gives us about twenty four hours move all your stuff in here and put your house up for sale." Bella's jaw dropped. He had honestly just told her she was moving in with him. She wasn't sure whether to jump up down squealing like a thirteen year old or slap him upside the head. He watched her face and looked suddenly looked a little nervous. He cleared her throat and averted his eyes. She started giggling uncontrollably. Those beautiful green eyes snapped back to hers.
"I can't believe you! I thought guys were supposed to have commitment issues!" She laughed. He stared at her a moment before he let a laugh come through. She laid her head against his chest and closed her eyes a moment, thinking. "I have a lot of clothes. Whenever Alice buys Rosalie something she won't wear or doesn't want anymore she gives it to me. That's a lot, by the way." She said quietly. The hand he had in her hair stilled. She looked into his startled eyes. She smiled a little and he bolted upright, cradling her in his lap.
"Alice made sure I had a lot of closet space." He whispered as if saying it out loud would break the spell.
"I have a lot of furniture that needs moved and sold." She said.
"Emmett and Jasper can help." He whispered back.
"I need something to wear over there and back." He dumped her softly on the bed and sprinted into the closet. She fell back against the pillows laughing. He was back in minutes with something in his hands. He tossed them on the bed beside her before flopping down in front of her with the most beautiful smile she had ever seen. She pulled her thong and bra out of the pile and blushed a little. She pulled the bra around her quickly without looking up. She did the same with the ruined thong. She looked at the other things he brought and smiled. She pulled the worn sweatpants over her hips and curled them up at the waist four times before she could see her toes. She pulled on a tee shirt that fit her. She looked down at herself in surprise. It was a Johnny Rockets tee shirt. She lifted her questioning eyes to his.
"It was my first job when I was sixteen. I kept the shirt in a box in the closet." He told her. She smiled for a second and her smile widened as she raised her feet and wiggled her toes at him. He chuckled a bit and pulled her feet into his lap.
"I don't see why you need shoes. I agree those sexy stilettos of yours would clash horribly with my ratty old sweats, but I figure we'll be in the car until we get to the house and I can carry you a few feet." He reasoned with a smile. She ran a hand through her hair and sighed. She stood and walked out the door. He followed her with a curious expression.
"Alice decorated everything, right, in every room?" She asked as she found the stairs and started down them. He nodded watching her try to find her way to the garage. She stepped off the landing and looked around. She turned and looked at Edward with a sigh. There were at least three rooms through which the garage could logically be through. He laughed deep in his chest and put his hands on her hips and led her through the kitchen to his Volvo. He put her carefully into the passenger seat and pulled her seat belt around her, clicking it in place. He was in his seat putting the key in the ignition, seat belt on, in seconds. She could feel his excitement and smiled. He pulled out and she saw the house was in one of the best developments near Manhattan. The development was also twenty minutes from her office instead of the forty five from her place. He pulled his phone out and called Emmett and Jasper. He didn't tell them who she was, she noticed, just that he needed help moving his "girl's" stuff to his house and a lot of it would needed to be carted out and sold. He told them her address and to meet them in an hour. He put his phone back in his pocket and smiled at her.
"Emmett is going to freak out when he sees you. We should be there in forty minutes. That gives you a twenty minute hard start before Emmett comes and finds anything embarrassing." Bella laughed already thinking of what to get out of the way before the bear of a man invaded, starting with her laundry.
As they pulled up in front of her house he grabbed her hand. She met his eyes.
"I think I love you already, my Bella." He whispered. She smiled widely and squeezed his hand. She leaned over the console and kissed him deeply.
"I think I love you too." She said getting out of the car. White dresses and church steeples flashed before her eyes and she smiled. This was going to work. She knew it as surely as she knew her name. Edward Cullen was her forever, even if he had to kidnap her for her to realize it after all these years.
