A/N: And I'm back! I hope you all enjoy this update. I must thank my beta Dtav for being simply amazing, as well as OCDJen for prereading like a madwoman!
So, I was featured in another blog (holy shit, this is amazing!) and I answered a few questions for it, so check it out. Here's the link: http:/ tinyurl (dot) com/3ydsry9
There was a smile on my face before I even opened my eyes. I was wrapped up in my blankets, all cuddly and warm, when I stretched my arms and hit something hard.
My eyes popped open to see that I accidentally hit Edward in the face, "Oh my God! I'm so sorry!"
He chuckled a little. "I have to admit, when I imagined how this morning would be, I never guessed it would be like this."
Smiling sheepishly, I replied. "I'm sorry."
"You should be, I bruise easily."
I looked over at him in shock. Did he?
He laughed and bent over and kissed me. "I'm messing with you, Babe. I barely even felt it."
Edward climbed out of bed, still naked and looking delicious, he turned back to face me. "Now get dressed. You slept in and we have a lunch date in about an hour and a half."
"What time is it? Wait, what lunch date?"
"Your friend Bella called this morning while you were drooling on my chest and we made plans for a double date. She wants you to meet Mike and she wants to meet me. And it's 11:17."
"You talked to Bella?"
"Yup, now get that butt out of bed and into the shower with me." He said, before he disappeared into the bathroom and I heard the shower turn on.
I was excited to see Bell. These past few months had been difficult and I had somewhat lost touch with her. Aside from our little run in at the gym about a week ago, I hadn't seen her in a long time.
"Where's my boyfriend?" I heard from the bathroom.
Smiling, I got up. "On his way to the shower." I didn't have anything to take off, so I just walked straight into the steaming shower. Edward was standing directly under the spray of water, his head tilted so that the water cascaded down his face.
When I shut the door to the shower, Edward turned to me and smiled. I went under the spray and yelped. "Oh my god, that's hot!"
"Sorry!" He said, turning it down. "I can't really tell how hot it is…"
Cautiously, I put my hand under the spray and realizing it was now too cold, I said, "Here, let me fix it.
I fiddled with the knobs a little before I finally got it to a good temperature. Stepping into the spray, I sighed and looked over to Edward who had an apologetic smile on his face.
"Don't worry about it, Babe." I said, grabbing his hand and tugging him to me. When he was flush against me, I grabbed him from behind the neck and kissed him. His hands went straight to my ass, pulling me closer.
Tangling my hands in his hair, I moved and started kissing him down his neck. "I've always wanted to fuck in the shower."
"I think we should try it." He said back, now taking control and turning me around so that I was up against the shower wall facing the mirror. He kissed me down my neck and back, his hands massaging my ass the whole time.
I was putty in his hands by the time he was done with me. He stood back up and I felt his erection pressing into my ass, making me moan.
"You want me, Baby?" He asked, kissing me on the back of my neck. I looked in the mirror and saw him behind me, kissing me all along my neck. Oh god, that was so hot! He looked forward and our eyes connected in the mirror.
"Yes," I whispered. He responded by slipping two fingers in my ass. My head fell forward and I rested my forehead on the glass wall trying to hold back a moan of pleasure.
"Look at me." He commanded. Immediately, I lifted my head to see him in the mirror. "I want you to watch while I fuck you."
This time, I couldn't hold back the moan. He pulled his fingers out and I felt something bigger brush against me. I felt a slight pressure and suddenly he was inside me.
"Oh God." I cried, closing my eyes.
He slammed forward. "Open your eyes."
I complied and he rewarded me with a kiss and another thrust. He found my sweet spot and I saw stars. He kept pushing forward, fucking me into oblivion, his eyes never leaving mine.
All too soon I felt my imminent release closing in on me and I hadn't even touched myself yet.
"Baby," I panted. "I'm going to cum!"
He thrust into me again and reached around and took hold of my erection, pumping along with his thrusts. A few seconds later I was cumming on the glass wall.
Edward kept thrusting into me. I looked at his reflection in the mirror when he was about to cum. His eyes were closed in ecstasy, and his mouth was slightly open. He was so beautiful.
He thrusted one last time and I felt him fill me. Reaching a hand back behind his neck, I pulled him to me and kissed him. He kept a firm grip on my hips and kissed me back.
A few seconds later, he pulled out. I turned back around on wobbly legs and smiled at him. "I think shower sex is my new favorite."
He laughed. "Me too."
After that we actually got some showering done, with a few little make out sessions here and there. About half an hour later, we were both dressed in jeans and shirts and ready to go meet Bella and Mike.
"So, where are we meeting them?"
"At Pink Taco."
I stopped walking. "What?" What the hell did he just say?
"We're meeting them at Pink Taco." He repeated.
"Edward, are you sure? Do you even know what a pink taco is?"
"I would assume it's a taco. That's pink."
"No Edward, it's a vagina."
Edward giggled. "Really?"
Rolling my eyes at him, I said, "Yes. Now are you sure that's the name of the restaurant?"
"I'm positive. I even have directions."
"If you're sure…"
We got into Edward's car and he took off towards Pink Taco. We drove with the radio on and I discovered Edward's love for classical music.
About fifteen minutes later we were pulling into the parking lot and there in front of me was, sure enough, Pink Taco.
"Oh my God, it does exist." I said.
We got out and I spotted Bella standing next to a blond guy. She saw me at the same time and started to wave.
"Hey!" I said, walking up to her and giving her a hug.
"Jasper, this is Mike." Mike was a little bit shorter than me. He was pretty slim and the first word that came to mind was boyish.
"Hi, Mike, it's great to finally meet you." I said, shaking his hand. "This is my boyfriend, Edward."
"It's nice to meet you, too." He replied shaking both Edward's and my hand.
"And it's nice to finally meet you in person." Edward said to Bella, pulling her into a hug.
"Let's go eat!" Bella said, after she hugged and said hi to Edward.
We walked into the restaurant and got a table pretty quickly. Once we were seated, we all looked through our menus. Well, everyone except Edward, he knew what he wanted.
Bella looked up over her menu and saw Edward staring off into space. "You're the token vampire of the group." She said.
Edward smiled and I laughed, but Mike asked a question, "You're a vampire?"
"I am." Edward responded.
"I've never met a vampire before."
"Well, I'm glad to be your first then."
Our waitress arrived then and took our orders. Mike and I decided on a burger, while Bella chose a salad. Edward got A+.
"So." Bella started. "What do you do, Edward?"
Come to think of it, I had no clue what Edward did for a living. That made me realize that, while I really did love this man, I still had a lot to learn about him. After all, we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.
"I do a number of odd jobs." He replied. "Ever since vampires went public we have been in high demand to do security and other high risk jobs that most humans won't do."
"Oh, that's cool. Does that sort of thing pay well, if you don't mind me asking?"
"It pays really well since most humans won't do the jobs. Vampires are very much in demand."
The rest of lunch passed in a similar fashion. Mike had a bunch of insane questions about vampires and Edward was more than happy to answer them, even going as far as drawing a diagram on a napkin.
After lunch, while we were all just sitting around and talking, I took a moment to sit back and enjoy my day. I wish this were how I was able to live my life on a daily basis, not just for the time being.
I wanted to spend time with friends and with Edward, not go to the club every night and I certainly didn't want my life dictated by someone else.
But when would this part of my life be over? How long would Maria keep hold of my life?
Edward reached over and grabbed my hand while he was explaining something to Mike. I gave it a gentle squeeze, letting him know I was there.
Maybe Edward and I could run and take Alice with us. We would only need to be gone a few years and we could go somewhere cool, like New York. But I loved Los Angeles and the beach; I don't think I could ever just leave.
What did Maria really have over my head anyway? I was found not guilty in court since I was threatened into doing what I did. So what could she really do to hurt me? I wasn't sure, but she always made it seem like she could just snap her fingers and I would be done for.
I mulled over those thoughts for a bit while everyone kept talking. I noticed Edward looking over at me and I smiled.
"What's up, Love?" He asked.
"Nothing, just thinking a bit."
"That's scary." Bella chirped in.
"Ha-ha." I said.
"You've hardly spoken the entire meal." She said.
"I know, I'm just having fun listening to Mike ask Edward stupid vampire questions."
"Hey!" He said. "They're not stupid!"
"You asked him if vampires could see in color."
He blushed. "Well cats can't see in color, so I thought that maybe vampires couldn't either."
"What does a vampire have to do with a cat?" Bella asked.
"I don't know…"
"Exactly." I said. "That's why I've been having fun listening to Mike ask Edward stupid questions."
We chatted a bit more before we decided that it was time to go. We had been at Pink Taco for a little over two hours and I was ready to go back home and not do much.
After we said our goodbyes to Mike and Bella, Edward and I got into the car and started off for home.
"I liked Mike." Edward said.
"Me too, he seemed good for Bella."
"Oh, I wanted to go to the grocery store. We're running out of things to eat at home." I said after a few minutes of silence.
A few minutes later we pulled into the parking lot of the grocery store and grabbed a shopping cart.
"What do you need?" Edward asked.
"You know, the usual. And you only have a couple bottles of Real Blood left, so we need to get more of that."
Edward smiled and put an arm around me. "I love how we're like an old married couple."
"How so?" I asked.
"Things are second nature to us, like you know I need more Real Blood. I dunno, I guess I'm just being silly."
"You're not being silly, I get what you mean."
We walked around the store picking up the things we needed for a while before I talked again. "I've been meaning to ask you something."
"What's that?" Edward asked, picking up a case of Real Blood.
"Well, you've been staying at my house these past few weeks and I wanted to know if you wanted to make it more permanent?"
"Like move in together?" He clarified.
"Yeah." I said, blushing for only God knows why.
"I'd love to, Babe." He said with a smile.
I smiled back at him and we headed for check out.
We were almost to the front of the store when Edward stopped walking. I looked back at him to see if he found something he wanted but he was facing the other direction and blocking me from view of whatever it was that he spotted.
"Edward, what's…" I stopped talking when I saw two incredibly beautiful people standing roughly ten feet away from us.
Edward squared his shoulders a little, like he was trying to block me from view. The woman in front smiled. She seemed familiar with her long blond hair and striking features. She had to be a vampire.
"Edward, darling." She said. "It's been much too long."
"Rosalie." He said. That's how I knew her; she was the face of vampires everywhere. "Emmett." He said to the rather large man behind her.
The guy smiled. "Hey, Bud!"
"What are you doing here?" Edward asked. I was beginning to think Edward wasn't happy that these two were here and I couldn't help but notice the irony of an intense vampire meeting in the bread aisle.
"We were driving by and we caught your scent and we just had to drop by and say hello." Rosalie said with a smile.
"Well, hello." Edward said, with a little wave.
Rosalie chuckled, "Edward, dear, you were always so funny."
"Well, I try. It was good to see you, but I must get going." He made to turn but Rosalie stopped him.
"Aren't you going to introduce us to your friend?" She asked.
"I'm sorry." Edward said with a very fake smile. "This is Jasper. My mate."
Rosalie's eyes widened. "So you finally found your One?" She stepped forward and offered her hand to me. "Jasper, it is a pleasure to meet the man who has captured Edward's heart."
"It's nice to meet you, Ma'am." I said shaking her hand, which was cold of course. Emmett stepped up from behind her and offered his hand which I took and winced when he squeezed a little, causing Edward to growl.
"Sorry." Emmett mumbled.
"It has been so lovely seeing you, Edward. You must keep in contact."
"Of course." He replied tightly.
Emmett and Rosalie left as quickly as they appeared. "What was that about?" I asked.
"Later." Edward replied, taking the shopping cart and walking to the check out line.
After we loaded everything into the car, Edward silently got into the driver's seat and took off down the road.
"Now can we talk? I'm kind of confused by that whole thing."
"Sure." He smiled awkwardly at me.
"Are they your friends?" I asked.
"No. Rosalie and me are more like," he thought for a second, "siblings, but it's a little different than that. We share the same maker, so there is a connection, but our relationship has always been pretty superficial.
"My maker, Carlisle, had hoped that Rosalie and I would become mates." I unintentionally flinched when he said that. I didn't like to think of Edward with someone else. "But that never happened. The only reason we are civil is for Carlisle, we both don't want to hurt his feelings. He is such a caring soul."
"And Emmett is Rosalie's mate?" I asked.
"Yes, they've been together around fifty years now."
"So how does a vampire know when they find their mate?"
"You just…know. The second I saw you in that coffee shop I knew we were destined to be." He smiled at me and grabbed my hand. "You don't know how hard it was to let you out of my arms."
"Is that why I couldn't stop thinking of you?"
"I have never heard of a vampire falling for a human so I'm not sure. But I guess at some level you knew it too. It's why everything between us just seems to flow." We just pulled into the parking spot and Edward turned to me.
"Oh." I said. Now it was time to ask the big question that has been coming to mind lately. "So what about me?"
"What about you?" He asked.
"Well you're a vampire and I'm not…"
Edward stiffened in his seat. "What are you implying?"
"I just assumed you'd change me. I mean how else would this work?"
"Let's not talk about this." He said getting out of the car.
Sighing, I got out too. "We have to talk about this at some point, Edward."
"Why not?" I asked.
"Because—I just can't think about that right now."
"How come?" I walked around the car and placed my arms around his neck.
"Becoming like me—it's not pleasant." He made a face.
"Does it hurt?" I asked.
"More than anything I have ever experienced." He sighed.
Gulp. "But it's going to have to happen sometime, before it's too late."
"I know, but I just don't want to think of you in pain, so can we just drop it for now?"
"Sure." I said, giving him a kiss. "Let's just bring in the groceries."
"Thank you." He said.
Loading up all the groceries into Edward's arms, we made our way towards the house but were stopped short by Mrs. Cope.
"Hello, boys." She purred.
"Hi, Mrs. Cope," We replied in unison, making her smile grow even more.
"Do you think I could borrow you two for a few minutes?" She asked. Please don't ask for some freaky sex orgy, I pleaded in my head.
"Uh, sure…what for?" Edward asked.
"My darn sink isn't working, do you think you could help?"
"That shouldn't be a problem." I said, looking to Edward for confirmation, but he just shrugged. "Babe, why don't you go over there and take a look and I'll be right over after I put the groceries away."
"Wonderful!" Mrs. Cope exclaimed while rushing into her home.
"You're mean for making me go in there alone." Edward said, unloading the groceries to me.
"I'll only be a couple of minutes." I said with a smile.
Edward moped into Mrs. Cope's house and I went inside and started putting the groceries away, making sure to take my time. Mrs. Cope was a great neighbor, but her constant flirting was a lot to handle.
After running out of things to keep me home, I walked next door and lightly knocked on the door and let myself in. I could hear Edward and Mrs. Cope in the kitchen talking about something but I couldn't quite catch the subject.
Rounding the corner, I saw Mrs. Cope sitting on a bar stool with a pen and paper in her hand and Edward under the sink, tinkering with the pipes, all the while telling her a new recipe for banana bread.
I couldn't hide my laughter. Only Edward would be talking about banana bread recipes while plumbing.
"I hope I'm not interrupting." I said, walking into the kitchen.
"Oh not at all! Your boyfriend is just telling me about a recipe for banana bread and I have just been dying to make some for ages now."
"I'm glad he can be of service. How's the sink coming along?"
"Pretty well, just a few more minutes and I'll be done." Edward said.
Sitting down at the bar next to Mrs. Cope, I looked up to see her grinning at me. Oh boy.
"He sure is lovely." She said.
"I agree." I replied.
"Does he model?"
"Not that I know of."
"I think he should, I bet he could work wonders in front of a camera."
"I'll be sure to let him know."
"I actually have a camera right here." She said, pulling a small digital from her purse. "Edward, stand up." She commanded.
"What?" He asked from under the sink.
"Stand up, darling. I'm going to take your picture."
"Why?" He stood up and looked at me, confused. I could only shrug in return.
"Because you should model and I'm going to prove a point. Now pose." She clicked the button and a flash went of catching me by surprise. Edward just raised an eyebrow.
"We all know brooding looks good on you, but I want to see happy! Show me happy!" Mrs. Cope commanded, standing up and getting into a better position.
"What's happening?" Edward asked me.
"Smile!" Edward plastered a fake smile on his face and he looked more scared than anything. Mrs. Cope kept running around the kitchen making Edward do different poses.
I was having trouble breathing from laughing, but I decided that he had had enough. "Okay, okay. That's enough."
Mrs. Cope looked extremely put out. "But we're having so much fun."
"We have to get going. Tonight is date night and we need to get ready."
"If you must." She said.
We left her house and quickly ran back to mine.
"I have never been more afraid in my entire life!" Edward exclaimed as he collapsed onto the couch.
Jumping on top of him, I straddled his hips. "I'll have to get copies of those photos."
"I'm mortified." He said.
"I thought you looked sexy." I leaned down and kissed his lips. He brought his hands up and fisted them through my hair.
Moving my hands along his sides, I lifted up his shirt and ran my hands over his bare skin. I started to kiss along his jaw and down his neck.
"You're—so warm." He breathed. "I love it."
I broke away and lifted his shirt over his head and returned my lips to his chest making sure to suck each of his nipples. "Oh, God!" He cried when I bit down a little.
"Your shirt needs to go." He said. I sat up and ripped it off and his hands immediately ran over my chest leaving a trail of goose bumps in their wake.
"Let me ride you." I whispered. Edward moaned in reply.
Standing up, I tore off my pants freeing my painfully hard erection. When I looked back at Edward, he was already naked and lying on the couch. You gotta love vampire speed.
I was about to go to him when I remembered the lube. "Shit!" I said. "I'll be right back."
Quickly, I ran upstairs and grabbed the bottle that was sitting on the dresser and ran back down the stairs. Edward hadn't moved an inch except that he was slowly pumping his hand up and down his cock.
"You couldn't wait for me?" I asked.
"Get over here." He replied.
I ran to the couch and straddled his waist. "I want you so bad, Baby."
He kissed me deeply and grabbed the lube and squirted some onto his hand and applied it to his dick. He made sure he was fully covered before he brought a finger up to my hole and slid it in. I moaned at the sensation. I didn't need that much preparation since our activities earlier and soon I felt the head of his dick pressing against me.
Slowly I sat down until he was fully inside me. Edward's hands rested against my hips as I slowly came back up, only to slam back down again.
I picked up a rhythm when I found the proper angle and he was hitting my sweet spot every time. Grabbing a hold of my dick, I started to stroke in time with my thrusts.
"You feel so good." He panted. "I won't last long."
"I won't either. Cum with me, Baby."
His grip on my waist tightened and I knew he was going to cum soon. I started to move faster and I heard him start to pant.
"I'm cumming!" He said, before I felt him fill me.
I kept moving until I, too, was cumming all over his chest and my stomach. I collapsed onto him and he kissed me.
"I love you." He said.
"I love you, too."
A/N: What did you think? I'm really curious about your thoughts on Rosalie.
