I'm currently working on a new o/s that I might continue if readers enjoy it. I sent the first part of it to my beta. It's called 'Fifteen' and was inspired by Taylor Swift's song, but does not follow the song to the letter.

I've completed chapter 2 of my story 'Belief' and I think I'm done with the conclusion in chapter 3. I'm just waiting on my beta for feedback on those chapters.

Belief, chapter 2 – Teaser

They'd barely closed the front door when he attacked her lips with his. "God, I've missed you," he breathed after they broke for air. His hands rested on her hips, holding her to him. He didn't want to let her go. He had to keep telling himself that she was real, that he was really here.

"I missed you too," she murmured, her arms wrapped around his neck as she held on to him. She squealed in surprise when he abruptly scooped her up in his arms and looked around for something. "Looking for something?" she asked with a smile.

"Stairs?"

"Over there," she said pointing around the corner. He carried her upstairs, asking which way to her room. She pointed again and he took her where she instructed, laying her down on the bed when they reached their destination.

When he crawled over her like a lion in the Serengeti she couldn't tear her eyes from him. He slid the hem of her shirt up a little so he could nip and kiss her abdomen. "So warm…" he mumbled against her flesh.

He was moving so slowly that it was driving her crazy. It had been months since she'd experienced Edward's love making. Love… that was a new word to use for her and Edward. Love, she thought again. "Edward," she said pleadingly. "I need you."

His eyes met hers and he quickly divested her body of her clothes and then rid himself of his. Nestled between her thighs, he leaned in close and whispered "I need you too, Bella. All the time." With that he slowly sank into her, loving the way she gasped and panted and held onto his shoulders. She was amazing and he hadn't even reached his climax yet, much less started moving inside of her. "I love… the way you feel," he whispered just before kissing her. He pulled almost all of the way out of her before thrusting back in gently.

It started out gentle and slow. They were making love. They hadn't said it yet, but Bella felt it. Every thrust, every touch carried such emotion and made her quiver with desire. "Ohhh Edward," she moaned, feeling her body tensing in a sudden orgasm. He still hadn't reached his yet though and she could feel that he was still steadily pumping into her. As one of his hands slid under her, lifting up on her lower back he was able to reach a new depth within her. "Ahhh… yesss… riiiight there," she exclaimed.

A smile lit up his face. "That's it baby. Come for me again." Almost as soon as he said it she tightened around him again. "Let's see if we can come together next," he whispered, leaning in to suckle her breast. He trailed kisses upward until he reached that spot on her neck. Kissing, licking, and nipping her neck until she was whimpering he started thrusting harder.

"Oooohhh yesss! Harder… faster… Edward…" she moaned, feeling her body begin to quake again. Before she knew it she was trembling as another orgasm rocked her body, but this time she felt him ram into her harder as he came with her. His forehead was nestled in her neck as they breathed heavily while they both came down from their highs. "That…" she started, "was amazing."

When he looked up she was grinning like the Cheshire cat. "For me too," he whispered, smiling back at her. "You are amazing," he said quietly, kissing her softly. He reluctantly pulled out of her and laid beside her on the bed, grabbing the covers and cuddling with her. "I love you," he said suddenly.

Her eyes were closed and her back was pressed to his chest. She could pretend she was asleep, right? Maybe he thought she was. Maybe that was why he said it. His grip on her waist was soft, holding her to his body gently. He loved her. Love. That was a big word. They'd only known each other for a few months. Could she really love him? Yes, the answer was yes. She did love him and she wanted to say it back, but she was scared. She'd been hurt before and she didn't want this, whatever they had, to fall apart now that she knew she was in love with him. "I love you," she finally whispered back.

He held her a little tighter after hearing her say it back. His hands lazily caressed her stomach as their breathing slowed and they fell asleep. When he awoke he looked at the clock and saw that it was almost 9:00 PM. They had slept for nearly 3 hours. Nice nap, he thought, and what a nice way to wake up. The girl of his dreams was still sleeping, curled against his body.
