A/N: An outtake/future-take from You Should Know, originally written for the FGB Autism Awareness Compilation. I hope you enjoy it! :)
"I can't find the thingy," Bella said in between wild giggles. "It's dark in here."
"If you'd stop fumbling around, I could get it in," I said in frustration. "It's really hard."
"Careful, Edward. Don't touch it too much or you'll leave fingerprints and smudges everywhere." She leaned forward, and we bumped heads, sending her into another fit of laughter. "Ow! This is ridiculous. Why does it have to be so dark?"
"It can't be exposed to light, Bella. You know that." It really was exasperating and awkward – and our first experience with it. "Now hold this. I think it's almost in. Yes!"
"Don't move," she whispered. "It can slip out really easily. Just twist it really gently at first."
Finally, the roll of film caught, and I was able to turn the reel and load it properly. "I don't care how much you practice that in the light; it's just not the same when you can't rely on sight."
Spring semester had been in session for two weeks, and Bella and I were having our first experience with loading film into reels in the light-tight room. It was so dark that you couldn't even see your hand directly in front of your face. The first time I went in during the tour of the photo lab, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck, and I started to panic a little bit. I'd never done very well with enclosed spaces, but at least I'd never had a huge freakout. I would never have made it past those first couple of weeks in class if I had.
"There," I said as I inserted the loaded reel into the little black canister and snapped the lid on. "Let's do yours now."
After we had Bella's roll of film loaded and in the canister, we both sighed in relief and sat back for a moment. At least I know I sat back in relief. I couldn't see what Bella was doing. I jumped as I felt a cold hand on my cheek and a quick kiss on my lips. "We did it!" Bella said. "I'm sure it will be much easier next time."
I pulled her into my lap and wrapped my arms around her waist. "I hope so. I'm glad we came during open lab and not during class hours. There would probably be a line of people waiting outside that door."
She giggled. "I wonder if anybody's ever done it in here."
I wasn't sure where that thought had come from, but far be it from me to question my girl thinking about sex. I raised an eyebrow and leered at her, even though she couldn't see me. "Hmm. I dunno. But if not, I wouldn't mind being the first ones." I dragged my lips down her throat and over her shoulder.
"I don't know – I was only kidding," she said. "Well, half kidding."
"Don't kid me about that kind of stuff, Bella." I bit her shoulder, and she squeaked. I soothed it with my tongue, and she let out a sound that stirred a pleasant feeling in my pants.
"You know, it really is kind of hot."
"Hot?" I repeated, running my thumbs over her hard nipples. "It seems like you're a little cold."
"I didn't mean it that way," she said lowly. "I mean...not knowing what you're about to do. Not being able to see anything."
"Oh, so if I do this" – I leaned in a bit a nipple through her top, making her jump and moan simultaneously – "then you won't see it coming?"
"God. It's like everything is hypersensitive." She swung a leg over me so she was straddling my lap. Then I felt her lick slowly up my neck and jaw. "See?" she whispered.
"Y–yeah. I do." A shiver went through my body, and I pulled her hips flush with mine, grinding my erection against her hot center. "Uh, you're wearing a dress."
She nodded as she continued her attentions on my neck. I could feel her damp heat radiating through the thin cotton panties she wore. She moaned when I moved my fingers down and touched her there, surprising and teasing her.
"Edward, you'd better not start something we can't finish."
"Oh, I plan on finishing," I growled, pushing my erection against her again and causing us both to groan. I tilted my head and aimed my lips toward where I hoped hers were. We collided in a rough kiss, tongues slipping and teeth nipping.
I felt her reach down, unbutton my jeans and ease the zipper down. When her hand grasped me, I gasped. She was so right: everything was unexpected and extra sensitive in the complete darkness. I groaned her name as her soft, grasping hand slid slowly up and down. My hands wandered over her body, squeezing her breasts, skimming down her sides and over the slight swell of her hips, and then caressing down her soft, smooth legs. When I hit leather, I think my cock jumped in her grip.
"You're wearing those boots, aren't you?" I whispered.
"Yeah, I guess I am," she said, the smug grin obvious in her voice.
"Oh, Bella," I growled again, tugging my pants down slightly and pushing her panties to the side. "I'm going to fuck you now. Here in the dark with those sexy boots on."
"Please," she whimpered. Her weight shifted on my lap as she rose slightly and reached down to position herself over me. Our breathing picked up exponentially as she sank down on me. The wet warmth that always felt so amazing around me was even better added to the thrill of this dark public place.
"You feel so good," I muttered into her neck when I was completely buried inside her. "Soft and warm." She started moving right away, hands on my shoulders and legs wrapped around me. My head fell back as I let her take the reins for the time being. She slid up and down slowly, making little noises that added to the heightened feelings. When I couldn't stand it any longer, I grabbed her hips and began to thrust up into her.
"Oh!" she exclaimed. I wondered briefly if the light-tight room was soundproof as well...
My hands began wandering again, and I pulled the front of her dress down so I could access her gorgeous breasts. Not that I could see them...but I could feel them. And taste them. Jesus, she tasted so good. I sucked a tightened nipple into my mouth, loving the feeling of rolling it around on my tongue. I was pretty sure she loved it, too, because she groaned and contracted around me. Her other breast filled my left hand, and I pinched her nipple roughly, knowing it always brought her right to the edge.
She cried out, and I felt her internal tightening again, causing my balls to tighten with that winding and coiling feeling that always meant I was close. I moved my hands to her hips and held on while I thrust upward. She ground down on me more forcefully and gasped as she began to pulse around me and call my name as quietly as she could. Each squeeze of her walls around my dick urged me closer and closer. I slipped my arms underneath hers and gripped her shoulders, pulling her down as I pushed up. And then I was done for. I sucked on her neck, muffling my loud groans as I came deep inside her.
She collapsed against me like a rag doll, and I held her as I sagged back in the chair. "I can't believe we just had sex in the photo lab," she said when our breathing evened out. She sat up, causing me to slip out of her. "Oh, God. That was hot."
I laughed and leaned forward to kiss her. "I have to agree, baby."
We straightened ourselves and cleaned up as best as we could in the dark. I was relieved that Bella carried tissues in her bag. When we were as presentable as we felt we could be, I cracked the door open and peeked out. "Coast is clear," I told her. "Not a soul in sight."
She breathed out heavily. "Good. Look, I'm going to go use the restroom. Can you start my film for me?"
"Of course," I told her, kissing her on the temple. "Go ahead."
At that moment, the door to the second light-tight room opened, and a couple stepped out looking as rumpled and bedraggled as I imagined we did. The girl smoothed her hands over her blonde hair; the guy just grinned as he exited the room.
Bella's eyes widened as they walked past her and out of the lab. "Guess that answers my question from before. But they didn't even the decency to pretend they were here to do work."
I snorted. "Like there was anything decent about what we just did."
One side of her mouth lifted in a smirk, and she threw her arms around my neck and kissed me. "I love you," she whispered. "And that was sensational."
"Yes, it was," I murmured. "And I love you, too."
"Be right back," she said, shooting me a flirty look over her shoulder as she walked out of the photo lab.
I watched her go with a smug smile on my face. I had the best girlfriend ever.
