A/N: How good was New Moon huh? I loooved it. I've seen it 3 times already and I'm sure I'll see it a few more times before I hang out waiting for it on DVD. How cute was Jasper? Those dimples *sigh*
Anyway, thanks for the reviews for the last chapter. I promised I wouldn't make you wait so long and here it is. And a much happier chapter as well.
* * * * *
From This Moment
"Come on Alice. Push."
"I am!" groaned Alice. "Damn, I hate this!"
"I know you do but it has to be done."
"I don't want to do this anymore," huffed Alice, pushing with whatever strength she could muster.
"It'll be worth it in the end, I promise."
"Jazz!" she pleaded. "I want to go home! Tell her I want to go home."
"I know baby," he soothed. "And we will. Soon. But you have to do this now. You know you do."
Giving in, Alice continued with her physiotherapy session, albeit unwillingly.
They were at her physiotherapist's rooms and Alice was working out her ankle, doing strengthening exercises on it. It had been badly broken in the crash and she needed to do these regular, intense physio sessions in order to avoid walking with a limp in future. Alice hated it. And she let everyone know she hated it.
Tina, the physio, was used to being the object of her patient's anger and any harsh words just rolled off her back. Poor Jasper didn't cope quite as well, hating to see Alice in any pain and wishing he could take her place.
Sweating and grimacing, Alice looked at Jasper, who drove her to every session and put up with any abuse Alice threw at him while she worked out. She couldn't help her heart melting as she took in the worried look on his face. If she didn't love him beyond reason before, she would have fallen like a ton of bricks after her accident.
Two months after she was discharged from hospital, Jasper was still not back at work full time. Since her cast came off three weeks ago, he had been working shorter hours and he never missed her physio sessions, making sure he left in time to drive her. Nothing was too much trouble for him, taking care of her so diligently that she had to put her foot down (the uninjured one) and tell him to stop hovering.
At night, he lay in bed watching her, gently caressing her hair, her skin, utterly grateful that she was back in his arms. Shortly after her return home, she'd been woken by the sound of Jasper sobbing in his sleep. Gently rousing him, she'd pulled him into her arms to comfort him. Jasper had admitted to having nightmares that she had died, shudders still racking his body. Alice had kissed him and held him tight, murmuring over and over again that she was alive and with him and would never willingly leave him.
When he'd had the same dream four nights running, Alice had made him talk through his experience and fears while she was in the coma. Her heart had broken as he told her of his desperation and agonising fear of her dying. She listened in wonder as he told her of how he talked to her all the time, willing her to wake up. How he never left the hospital. Even how, if she had died, he would have joined her. They'd held each and cried for what seemed like hours. The tears had been cathartic, especially for Jasper and his nightmares had lessened. He still had the dream occasionally but not like before.
Now, despite hating it and complaining constantly, Alice was visiting the physio every day. She wanted to be able to walk without limping, especially on her wedding day.
Another reason to be in a bad mood. Their wedding was to be this weekend and Alice was depressed about it. She had been looking forward to it and now who knew when they would be married.
Seeing Alice's face darken even further, the physio called a halt to today's session. Despite her complaints, Alice had diligently done all her exercises and Tina was pleased with her progress.
"Well done, Alice."
"Hmmph!" was all the response she got.
"In fact, you're doing so well that we can cut our sessions down to twice a week," said Tina.
Alice looked up in surprise. "Really?" Tina nodded.
"That's great, baby. Isn't it?" said Jasper in encouragement. Alice was in a particularly bad mood at today's session.
"Yeah, suppose so," mumbled Alice, putting her shoes on. And yet another reason for her mood. Due to the weakness in her ankle, she couldn't wear her heels; resigned to wearing flats which made her look smaller than ever.
In the car on the way home, Jasper looked at Alice worriedly. She seemed particularly down today. Alice had suffered from headaches when she first got home but these had lessened over the weeks. She hadn't had one for over a week.
"Do you have one of your headaches?" asked Jasper, reaching out to run his finger over her temple in a gesture of comfort.
Alice shook her head. "No."
"Then what's wrong, baby?" He couldn't keep the worry from his voice.
She couldn't help the tears that sprang to her eyes as she looked at him. Jasper wiped the tears that ran down her face, quickly followed by another. Pulling over, Jasper turned off the engine and turned to her.
"Talk to me Alice. Tell me what's wrong. I hate to see you upset," pleaded Jasper.
"We were supposed to get married this weekend!" she blurted out before she began crying in earnest.
Undoing their seatbelts, Jasper pulled her as close as possible, stroking her hair and giving her little kisses as he tried to soothe her.
"It's ok, baby. Don't cry. Don't cry, my love," he crooned in her ear as he rocked her gently.
Gradually Alice's tears slowed down and finally stopped as she lay against Jasper's shoulder, unheeding of the gear stick between them.
"Ok now?" he asked softly.
Alice nodded and wiped her eyes. "I'm better now. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to carry on like that."
"Hey, it's ok. I didn't realise you were so upset about the wedding," replied Jasper.
"It just all hit me today. I was so looking forward to it until that stupid car hit me," she cried angrily. "Now who knows when we'll get married."
"Alice, I'd marry you right now if that's what you wanted."
"You would?" asked Alice, looking at his face.
Jasper smiled down at her. "Of course, silly. I love you so much. And after nearly losing you, I cherish every moment I'm with you. In my heart, you're already my wife, Alice. A piece of paper not going to make much difference."
Feeling tears gather again, Alice gave him a watery smile. "I love you too. That's why I'm so upset. I wanted to make it official to the whole world that you're mine."
"I am yours. Only yours," he replied, kissing her eyelid. "I'll never want anyone else."
Jasper looked at her, an idea coming to him.
"Alice, how about we organise our wedding? Starting now. Instead of booking venues and things, why don't we get married in our special place? We can probably have things organised in a couple of weeks. We're only having our families and best friends anyway so if we give them a date and time, it shouldn't be a problem." Jasper was starting to get excited at the thought. "What do you think?"
Alice sat back and looked at him in amazement. His blue eyes were bright with excitement as he waited for her answer. "I...I think that's a wonderful idea."
"You think so?"
"Yes. Oh Jazz! That would be so perfect! I'd love to marry you in our special place. Now that I'm almost walking normally we could do it in a few weeks," she replied with excitement. Leaning back into her seat, she put her seatbelt back on before turning to him. "Come on Jazz, let's go! We've got a wedding to organise!"
Jasper looked at her in bemusement, pleased to see all traces of melancholy had left her eyes. Shaking his head, he did as she asked and started the engine.
* * * * *
"Bella? I need your help."
"Of course Ali. What's the matter? I'll be right there," replied Bella, her voice sounding worried.
Realising she'd made Bella worry, Alice felt bad. "No, no, I'm fine Bella. It's nothing like that. I'm sorry if I worried you. Especially in your condition. No, I need your help organising my wedding."
"Oh, ok. That's good. I was worried for a moment," admitted Bella. "So, when are you looking at having it?"
"In a month's time."
"A month! How are you going to organise a wedding in a month? You'll be lucky to get a venue for a start..."
"Bella, stop," ordered Alice with a laugh. When Bella stopped talking Alice continued. "We're going to have it in a place that special to both of us. It's up in the mountains. A meadow next to the river."
"Sounds lovely Al. But what about the rest?"
"What about it? Listen, we're only having those closest to us. I thought I could get a catered buffet dinner and we just need a marriage celebrant. I'm sure we can find someone who's free. And I'm planning a special wedding night."
"So, what do you need me to do?" asked Bella, confused.
"I need you to help me choose dresses for us. Since you're going to be my bridesmaid."
"Oh Alice! I'm honoured."
"You're my best friend, of course I want you to be my bridesmaid. Jasper's planning on asking Edward to be his best man."
"Edward will be so pleased. Now, do you want help with caterers? I know a few," asked Bella.
"I'll need someone who's willing to transport everything up into the mountains," replied Alice.
"I'm sure we'll find someone."
"Thanks Bella. I want this to be an intimate celebration of our love with the people we truly love there."
"I'm sure it will be. I'm so glad you two are finally getting married. Although I don't think Jasper could love you anymore than he already does," said Bella softly, remembering the agony Jasper went through while Alice was in hospital.
"I know and I can't wait to be Mrs Whitlock," replied Alice. There was a brief silence.
"So Al, where do we start looking for dresses?"
* * * * *
Three and a half weeks later Alice was standing next to Emmett getting ready to be driven to where Jasper was waiting for her. Her heart skipped a beat with excitement as she realised she was finally going to become his wife.
Organising the wedding had proven easier than she'd expected. With Bella's help, she had found caterers that were willing to travel to the meadow. They had set up tables and chairs for the small number of people who were going to attend and were standing by to serve when required. There was a mixture of hot and cold food as well as drinks.
Alice and Bella had found similar dresses but in different colours. Soft cream for Alice and blue the colour of Jasper's eyes for Bella. They were both made of silk chiffon in an empire waist design that flattered both of them, particularly Bella's expanding waistline. Because of Alice's ankle, Bella's pregnancy and the fact that the ground was uneven, Alice had chosen to wear ballet flats in matching colours.
There was one aspect of the day that Alice had only revealed to Jasper the night before. Choosing to ignore tradition, they had spent the night together, Jasper admitting that he couldn't bear to be away from her, even for one night.
"So, are you going to tell me where we're spending our wedding night?" asked Jasper with a smile.
Alice decided to put him out of his misery. "We're spending the night at the meadow."
"What?" asked a shocked Jasper. "What do you mean?"
"Relax. I'm not going to make you camp out there. Well, not in the way you're thinking," she laughed. "I found a company that will set up this very fancy tent, complete with bed and portable shower and toilet. You've heard of those luxurious tents they use in safari parks in Africa, haven't you? Well, it's similar to that. That place is so special to me and I wanted to spend our first night as husband and wife there."
Jasper gave her a loving, tender kiss before resting his forehead against hers. "It sounds perfect." Alice hadn't seen the tent but she was confident it would be perfect for tonight.
Since the meadow was very secluded Alice had decided to hire a couple of SUV's to transport their guests to the meadow. An all-terrain vehicle was necessary on the dirt roads. She had arranged for everyone to meet at Rosalie's place and she had seen the vehicles arrive a short while ago. It was almost time.
"Ready, short stuff?" asked Emmett with a wide grin.
"As ready as I'll ever be Em," she replied.
"Let's go then," he said, helping her onto the motorbike.
Emmett was going to ride Jasper's motorbike into the clearing with Alice on the back, where she would then take her father's arm to meet Jasper. The motorbike had been Alice's idea. She was very fond of that bike.
Standing next to Edward, Jasper was nervously twitching his fingers wishing they could start.
"Relax, Jasper," urged Edward, a slight breeze ruffling his bronze hair.
"I don't know why I'm nervous. I can't wait to marry Alice but my stomach is doing somersaults," mumbled Jasper.
Edward chuckled and placed his hand on Jasper's shoulder. "I don't know why we get so nervous. I was desperate to marry Bella but still felt sick when I thought of the ceremony. Must be a guy thing."
"Mmm," grunted Jasper. Just then, he heard the roar of the motorcycle and his pulse leapt. Finally, he thought. He looked at the small assembled crowd. As planned, only the people they truly loved were here. Rosalie and Emmett with the twins. Catherine and Daniel Brandon. Angela and Ben. Carlisle and Esme. And of course Edward and Bella. The people who were truly happy for them.
Through the trees the motorcycle slowly appeared, driven by Emmett with Alice side-saddle behind him. When he came into the clearing, Emmett came to a stop where Bella waited nearby with Daniel. Jasper watched as Alice got off the bike and he caught his first glimpse of his bride. And his breath caught in his throat.
His Alice was breathtakingly beautiful. An angel. A miracle. His miracle. Jasper felt the moisture in his eyes and desperately blinked them away.
From somewhere, music started playing as she took her father's arm, following Bella down the makeshift aisle towards Jasper. Vaguely, Jasper recognised the song, 'Unchained Melody' as she made her way towards him. Her head was surrounded by a circle of delicate flowers, the same colour as her dress. She was carrying a matching posy of flowers. In front of her, Bella wore a similar dress, showing off her now noticeable pregnancy.
Alice looked up and caught his eye, the intense love in her eyes making him feel weak. It was all he could do to stop himself running over there, picking her up in his arms and running off with her.
"Now there are the two most beautiful women I've ever seen," whispered Edward in his ear, his eyes locked on his gorgeous wife.
Jasper could only nod, lost for words.
Their eyes locked on each other, Alice slowly approached with her father. When she was close enough, he could see the sheen of tears in her eyes, her face alight with joy.
Finally, finally, they reached Jasper and Edward. Bella gave Jasper a wink before standing off to the side and watched as Daniel placed Alice's hand in his. Jasper couldn't help himself, he leaned down and kissed her, pouring his love into it. Who knows how long he would have kissed her if it wasn't for the throat-clearing of the celebrant as well as the snickers from their guests. They pulled apart and gave the celebrant a small guilty smile.
"Dear friends, we are gathered here to celebrate the joining in marriage of Alice Brandon and Jasper Whitlock..." commenced the celebrant.
Standing face to face with Alice's hand in his, Jasper felt like he was in a dream. There was a time in his life when he truly thought he would always be alone, always in darkness. He would have sneered at any suggestion that he would one day marry the woman of his dreams, had he but known it. And now here he was and he knew he'd never be alone again. He would always carry Alice in his heart, whatever happened. She was his dream come true. And he would love her with everything in him until he drew his last breath.
It was time to say their vows. Clasping both her hands in his, Jasper looked deeply into her green eyes, the world shrinking to include only the two of them. He completely forgot there was anyone else here and he spoke the words that came directly from his soul.
"Alice Brandon, you are the sunshine in my life, the rainbow after the storm, the first star I see at night. You could travel every ocean, every land and you will never, ever find anyone who loves you more than I do. I was in darkness, my soul a lonely wasteland. I had no hope or desire for love. And then you found me. You dragged me kicking and screaming into your world...." he vaguely heard chuckles nearby. "And for that I will love you for eternity. I will take care of you when you're sick, comfort you when you're sad, cry with you, laugh with you. We will never be lonely again because we will hold each other in our hearts always. You, Alice, are my dream come true and I vow, with everything in me, that I will love you, adore you, worship you in this lifetime and beyond."
Jasper felt a tear of happiness slip down his cheek. He smiled tenderly as Alice took a deep breath to steady herself before saying her vows, her own eyes swimming with tears.
"Jasper Whitlock, you are my hero, my knight in shining armour, my lover, my friend. You let me fly when I need to and you hold me safe when I need to be grounded. You take the utmost care of me and it was you who kept me here, who fought for me when I was so badly hurt..." her voice trailed off at the memory of that difficult time. Jasper squeezed her hands and smiled in encouragement. "You are such an honourable man. And I'm so honoured that you love me the way you do. I want to spend every day of our lives showing you how much I love you and how much you mean to me. I fell in love with you at first sight and I will love you with every beat of my heart for as long as we live."
If they had looked around they would have noticed that there wasn't a dry eye anywhere as they heard and witnessed the soul deep love they felt for one another.
"Jasper Whitlock. Do you take Alice Brandon as your lawfully wedded wife? To love, honour and cherish, in sickness and in health, through good times and bad. Forsaking all others, as long as you both shall live?"
"I do," replied Jasper with the utmost sincerity.
"Alice Brandon. Do you take Jasper Whitlock as your lawfully wedded husband? To love, honour and cherish, in sickness and in health, through good times and bad. Forsaking all others, as long as you both shall live?"
"I do," whispered Alice.
"Can we have the rings please?" asked the celebrant. Edward stepped forward and held out the rings in his hand. The celebrant spoke the words that would bind them forever. Placing a ring in Jasper's hand, he asked Jasper to repeat after him.
"I, Jasper Whitlock, take you, Alice Brandon, to be my lawfully wedded wife. To honour, love and cherish, so long as we both shall live. Please accept this ring as a token of my love and devotion." As he spoke the words, he slid the platinum ring on Alice's finger.
Giving Alice the other ring, she repeated the celebrant's words.
"I, Alice Brandon, take you, Jasper Whitlock, to be my lawfully wedded husband. To honour, love and cherish, so long as we both shall live. Please accept this ring as a token of my love and devotion." She slid the ring on, looking through tear washed eyes.
Hands clasped tightly, they just smiled at each other.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."
With a roar of approval behind them, Jasper reached up and took Alice's face in his hands gently. Bending down, he brought his lips to hers. The kiss started off chastely but quickly escalated. Alice pulled him close as he wrapped his arms around her, lifting her off the ground as he held her to him. They poured their love and passion into the kiss, lips and tongues caressing.
"Maybe would should just leave now," came a highly amused voice that penetrated the haze of passion they were in.
Jasper lifted his head and turned to see everyone laughing at Emmett's words. Setting Alice down, he refused to let her go as they were surrounded by their loved ones who were offering their congratulations.
Bella hugged Alice tightly. "Congratulations Al. I'm so happy for you."
"Thanks Bella. For everything," replied Alice.
One by one everyone hugged and kissed her. Rosalie gave her an especially tight hug.
"Congrats sis," she grinned.
"Hey, I've never had a sibling before," remarked Alice as she was picked up by Emmett and spun around. "Emmett!" she laughed breathlessly.
"Just giving my newest little sister a hug," he grinned. They turned to watch Rosalie giving her twin a hug, Jacob and Emily trying to get in on the act.
"Auntie Alice. Are you really my Auntie now?" asked Emily, eyes wide. The twins were nearly five now, and absolutely adorable.
"I sure am, sweetie," said Alice, giving her a hug.
"That's good because I love you Auntie Alice."
Alice felt the tears spring to her eyes again. "And I love you. And Jacob."
"Are you going to a have a baby?" Emily asked innocently.
Alice looked up at Jasper's grinning face. "Not yet. But I hope I can give you a cousin one day."
"Yay!" Jacob called her and she ran over to her brother, both of them deciding to have a footrace to the water.
"Don't go near the water, ok?" called out Rosalie, as they ran off.
The next few hours were spent celebrating. The caterers served their delicious meal, all of them highly enjoying this small, intimate party in such a spectacular setting.
Daniel and Edward made the customary speeches which had them all in stitches and then the wedding cake was cut.
Finally, the caterers began clearing up the leftovers. The tables and chairs would be picked up tomorrow afternoon.
Then, it was time for everyone to leave. The guests got into their SUV's and with a flurry of goodbyes, were soon out of sight. They were followed by the catering crew.
And they were finally alone in the twilight, several torches leading to their tent which was set up near the water.
"Well, Mrs Whitlock. I think that went very well."
Alice grinned widely at being called 'Mrs Whitlock'. "I agree, Mr Whitlock." They just grinned at each other stupidly for a few moments.
"Come Jasper. I want to show my husband where we're spending our wedding night," said Alice huskily as she took his hand.
"Anything you say, my lovely wife," grinned Jasper.
Alice felt a primal thrill at hearing him call her his wife. Now he was truly hers. Pulling him along, she walked past the portable shower and toilet which had been set up and stopped in front of the large tent. It was in the style of a Bedouin tent, large and airy. The front flaps were tied back and there was a light, filmy mesh curtain covering the entrance. On either side of the entrance were lit torches, giving it a romantic air.
"Wow, this looks great, baby," said Jasper in awe.
"I know. Wait 'till you see the inside," she replied, pulling aside the curtain to lead him inside. The tent was tall enough that even Jasper didn't have to stoop to enter.
"Wait," said Jasper. At Alice's look of confusion, he just smiled and before she could realise his intention, he'd picked her up. "Isn't it tradition for the groom to carry his bride across the threshold?"
Alice giggled and cupped the back of his head, giving him a loving kiss. With a wide smile, Jasper carried her inside before setting her down.
Jasper couldn't help the whistle of appreciation when he stepped inside. It was like a set from an 'Arabian Nights' scene. Sheer, colourful curtains were draped over every wall of the tent, with candles everywhere. The floor was covered by thick carpeting and there was even a daybed on one side of the tent. A small table held an array of fruits and there was a cooler with several bottles of champagne keeping cool. But the main focus of the tent was the huge, luxurious, low bed in the centre. It was covered in a rose, silk coverlet and there were numerous pillows scattered over the bed. Over the bed, hanging from the top of the tent was a floaty netting that was large enough to surround the bed. It had to be the most romantic setting Jasper had ever seen.
"This is incredible," he breathed.
"Sure is. I wanted our first night as a married couple to be special," replied Alice, wrapping her arms around his waist.
Jasper held her close and leaned his forehead against hers. "It already is because you're here," he whispered tenderly.
"I'm so happy Jasper."
"Me too. I didn't think it was possible to be this happy. The only other time I've felt close to this happy was when you woke up in the hospital. But today beats that. Thank you, my love, for becoming my wife."
"We were meant to be, Jazz. I knew it from the first moment I saw you."
"And I fought so hard against fate," he smiled wryly.
"Not for long."
"How could I? I wanted you from the first. Like I want you now," he murmured, kissing the delicate spot below her ear. "I love you so much," he whispered in her ear, his tongue tracing the soft outline of it before taking the lobe into his mouth and sucking softly.
Alice's eyes closed in pleasure as she tilted her head to allow him better access. "I love you too. I sometimes think my heart literally can't hold all the love I feel for you. Like it's going to burst out of my chest. I felt that way this afternoon when I saw you waiting for me."
Placing gentle kisses down her throat and across to her other ear, Jasper agreed. "I know what you mean. You were, you are, so unbelievably beautiful. I sometimes wonder why you chose me. I was such damaged goods when we met."
"No, you weren't damaged. You were just hurt, badly hurt. And you are beautiful too, Jasper. So beautiful," she whispered, her hands roaming over his chest, feeling his chiselled torso through the silk fabric of his shirt.
In response, Jasper pulled her close. One hand speared into her hair to hold her steady as their lips met. At first the kiss was soft and tender but it soon deepened as their intense love quickly escalated their passion. Jasper sought entrance to her mouth, needing the taste of her like he needed air. Their tongues gently duelled, to-ing and fro-ing as they sought each other's essence. They only broke apart due to the need to breath.
Alice wriggled her hips against his, feeling the hardness she loved so much, her sex already throbbing in anticipation of being filled by him. Her hands began unbuttoning his shirt, as he began softly suckling on her throat. She moaned quietly when his hands cupped her breasts, kneading them gently, the material of her dress providing a delicious friction. As she got more and more aroused, she tugged off his shirt, her fingers running over and over his torso and moving down towards his belt buckle. Reaching down, she cupped his hardness, smiling when he bucked into her hand.
Jasper's hands reached around and pulled down the zipper of her dress before pushing the straps off her shoulders, letting it pool at her feet. He couldn't help his swift intake of air as her beautiful body was displayed to him. Her bridal underwear was cream silk and lace, decorated with tiny pink rosettes on her strapless bra as well as the panties, which tied up at the side. She managed to look both virginal and decadent at the same time.
"Dear Lord, you take my breath away," he sighed as his finger traced over the tops of her bra, touching the silky skin of her upper breast. Leaning down, his tongue traced the route his finger had taken, the sound of her beating heart music to his ears. His fingers were rolling her rigid nipples through the silk as his tongue dipped into the hollow between her breasts.
"Oh Jazz, I want you so much," she breathed, trying to press herself against his erection in search of relief for the ache between her legs.
"Oh baby, you'll have me, I promise. But first I want to love you properly. I want to make you come until you're begging me to enter you," he murmured against her lips as one hand made its way down to cup her, his finger pressing against the wetness of her panties.
"Mmm, that's nice," she murmured, pushing against his hand. She groaned in protest as his hand left her to again cup her breast briefly before he removed her bra.
Wrapping his arms around her waist, Jasper leaned down and took her rigid nipple in his mouth, suckling it like it was his last meal. Alice threw her head back, bringing her breasts into relief as she bent backwards, giving him total access. Jasper wasn't slow to take up her silent offer, his mouth moving back and forth between her nipples. In this position, her hips were pressed tightly against his erection, his hardness rubbing her nub as she lifted one leg. When he took one nipple between his teeth and gently tugged, Alice felt the gush of liquid as she climaxed for the first time that night.
"So good....so...good," she gasped as she bucked her hips.
"I'll make it even better, baby." With that, he untied the ribbon of her soaked panties which fluttered down her legs where she kicked them away, along with her shoes.
With a soft sigh, Jasper looked at his naked bride for a few moments. Alice's luminous green eyes looked so trustingly at him that he felt tears prick his eyes. Her absolute love and trust in him blew his mind. Whispering, "I love you Alice," he picked her up, kissed her passionately and laid her down on the bed, scattering cushions in the process.
Kneeling down beside the bed, Jasper ran his hand over her starting at the top of her head. He touched every part of her skin, skimming it in parts, pressing harder in others as if he wanted to learn every inch of her. Alice's pulse was thumping as his hands moved over her but she didn't move, allowing him to touch her even though she was aching to touch him back. When he reached her legs, he gently parted them as he traced her inner thighs, feeling the moisture at the top of them. Looking into her eyes, watching her reaction, his fingers stroked through the hair of her mound, finding the moist skin of her folds. Alice breathed out sharply as his finger parted the folds and stroked up and down, his fingers gliding easily over her. With his thumb, he swirled her clitoris round and round, eliciting gasps of pleasure from her.
"Oh...that's...ah....good," she breathed shakily, her legs falling open even further, inviting his further touch.
His eyes never leaving her face, Jasper inserted first one finger into her, then another, then another, stretching her over-sensitised skin. With his thumb rubbing her clit, he began pumping his fingers into her, slowly at first, then progressively faster as her hips began bucking off the bed as her moans got louder.
"Oh god, Jazz... more...please...more. So good.....so good...don't stop," she babbled incoherently as Jasper wound her body tighter and tighter with every thrust of his fingers.
"That's it baby. I love hearing your moans," he whispered against her cheek.
When he inserted a fourth finger, Alice came apart under his hands. Arching her body, she gave a long, low moan as her orgasm ripped through her. Jasper continued pumping his fingers into her as she rode it out, easing them out slowly as she settled. His fingers were dripping with her juices and he licked them clean, enjoying her reaction. Her eyes were now nearly black with desire, her pupils dilated.
Alice lay there for a few moments trying to catch her breath. Jasper seemed determined to make her lose her mind and he was doing a very good job of it but she needed to extract a little revenge. He was still kneeling beside the bed and she urged him up as she reached for his belt buckle, pulling it off and undoing his trousers. His huge erection made it harder to pull his trousers down but he kicked them off, along with his shoes and socks. Alice pulled off his boxers, his erection springing out into her hand.
Licking her lips, Alice squeezed him with her hand, enjoying his swift intake of air. Slowly, she stroked him up and down, her palm flitting over the head of his penis, spreading the beads of pre-come that gathered there over it. Jasper closed his eyes as Alice continued pumping him.
"Kneel down again," urged Alice. Jasper complied instantly. Due to the low height of the bed, his cock was lined up with her mouth, allowing her to lie down and take him into her mouth. He groaned loudly as her plump lips opened and he watched her take his engorged cock into her mouth, inch by inch. Her hand surrounded the part of him that couldn't fit as she massaged him while sucking on him at the same time. He couldn't help pumping into her mouth as he felt her tongue swirl around him, her teeth taking gentle nips. It was a delicious agony.
"Oh baby!" he moaned. "God, you're so good. Ahh!..." he cried as she took his balls in her free hand and began massaging them as well, rolling the sacs between her fingers as her head moved up and down on his cock.
He could feel his balls tighten, signalling his impending release. "Baby, Iet go. I'm gonna come," he warned, wanting to come inside her. Alice shook her head, sucking even harder and Jasper couldn't hold on any longer.
"Alice!...." he cried out as his body shook, his come spurting into her mouth forcefully.
Alice felt his hot come spurt into the back of her throat and swallowed every last drop. Finally releasing him with a faint pop, she moved back on the bed as she licked her lips.
"Minx," muttered Jasper breathlessly with a smile. "I wanted to come inside you."
"The night is young, darling," said his gorgeous wife. "I want to feel you come inside me too."
Jasper felt his cock twitch at her words and knew it wouldn't be long before he was raring to go again. Standing up, he walked over to the cooler and picked up a bottle of champagne and a couple of glasses.
Alice lay on her side on this supremely comfortable bed and watched her handsome husband walk around the tent completely naked. She couldn't help licking her lips as she watched his muscled back and taut butt ripple in the candlelight. She wanted him again. When he turned around she admired his semi-hard member, her pussy throbbing with the need to have it inside her.
Sitting up against the pillows, Jasper sat down beside her and gave her a champagne glass. He popped the champagne and filled her glass then his.
"To my beautiful wife, whom I'll love with every cell in my body forever," he proposed, lifting his glass.
Alice raised hers to clink it with his. "To my gorgeous husband, who's made me happier than I could ever have dreamed. I love you, my darling Jasper."
They took a few sips of the champagne, looking at each other. Jasper dipped his finger in the champagne and smeared the liquid over her nipple, enjoying her gasp of desire. He then leant down and sucked off the liquid before doing the same with the other. He kept on doing it until Alice was frantic.
In danger of spilling the champagne all over the bed, Alice gave Jasper her glass. Jasper placed both glasses on the small bedside table and turned to her. He was now rock hard and he'd die if he wasn't inside her in the next few moments.
Alice must have read his thoughts because she lay back and pulled him over her, her legs spreading wide as his cock brushed her sex, coating him in her juices.
"Jazz, now, please," she pleaded, her hips bucking up as she tried to take him into her. She was almost whimpering in desperation.
Teasing her, he pushed into her but stopped with only his tip inside her. Alice was moaning beneath him, her face and body flushed. With all the control he could muster, he pushed into her inch by inch, sweating with the exertion not to just bury himself in her and just fuck her senseless. He'd do that later. Now was for loving her. For making love.
"Oh God Jazz...more," she cried.
Slowly, ever so slowly he buried himself to the hilt, the sensation of her muscles clenching around him exquisite. He looked at her face, a thin sheen of sweat covering her skin.
Alice lifted her legs and pressed them against the backs of his thighs, wanting him as deep as possible.
"I love you. I love you.." murmured Jasper, as he pulled out and then entered her again, faster this time.
"I love you," replied Alice, her nails digging into the skin of his back as he stretched her so deliciously she felt faint.
Jasper began a steady rhythm, their bodies sliding against each other. He reached down and took a nipple in his mouth as he thrust harder and harder.
"Oh....yes....yes....Oh God!..." she cried, her body shaking from his thrusts. "Harder Jazz. Please. Fuck me hard, Jazz!"
At her words, Jasper lost all restraint. Hitching one leg over his shoulder, he was even deeper inside her and began pumping furiously, raising himself on his hands so he could watch her body and breasts move with each thrust.
Alice looked up at his desire-slackened face and felt herself getting closer and closer to her climax.
Over and over he pumped into her, his hips like pistons, her cries of pleasure egging him on.
Alice took her breasts in her hands and began flicking her nipples. He was slamming into her so hard, she could feel every ridge of his cock as it moved in and out of her. She felt him get even harder inside her and she knew she was on the brink.
When Jasper pulled all the way out and then slammed back into her, Alice screamed in pleasure as her orgasm hit her like a volcano exploding. Every nerve cell cried out in pleasure as her climax radiated out from their joining throughout her whole body. Wave after wave of pleasure pulsed through her, leaving her totally limp and exhausted.
"I love you, Jazz!"
Jasper felt her inner walls clamp tightly as she screamed in ecstasy and it was enough to push him over the edge. His cock twitched violently, then throbbed endlessly as he ejaculated into her, flooding her womb with his come. He kept pumping into her as she milked every last drop of his essence, her arms wound tightly around him.
"I love you, Alice!"
Their eyes never left each other as they reached the pinnacle of their love-making, their souls speaking directly to each other.
Finally, absolutely shattered, he rolled off her as he tried to get some semblance of normality back.
He didn't know why it was different but tonight, their love making had been special. Almost spiritual. They had bound themselves to each other in the eyes of the law and now they had bound their souls. Inextricably bound. And neither would have it any other way.
