Chapter 1:

September

I woke up suddenly and realized just how early it was but I couldn t sleep anymore. I looked over at my amazing boyfriend, Edward, who was sleeping on his stomach. One arm was wrapped around my waist and the other hand was tucked up under his head. I quietly removed his arm from around my waist so I could get up without waking him up,
since he didn't have to get up for awhile.

It was only five-thirty, so I grabbed my sketchbook and walked out onto the balcony. The sun was just beginning to come up, so I settled into my chair and started to draw the Twin Towers.
It was something I normally loved to do, but today I just felt off. I looked out at the water and continued to draw.

I thought back to the summer and how great it was. I met Edward in May and we had moved in together by the middle of July. Some might argue that it was way too soon,
but you just know when the time is right. I knew that Edward and I were perfect for each other; no one ever understood me as much as he did. We enjoyed the same music,
the same style in art and let's just say everything else fit together too.

I was so absorbed in my thoughts and my drawing that I didn't hear Edward come out on to the balcony, until I felt his arms around me and his voice in my ear.

"Edward, what are you doing up? You still have time to sleep, Baby", I said looking into his amazing green eyes. He looked cute with his normally crazy reddish bronze hair sticking up more than usual.

"I know, Love, but I missed you. I woke up alone and the bed felt so lonely without you," he pouted.

"Aw, my poor baby was lonely," I said looking at him and biting my lip. I knew it makes him crazy, but I loved to do it.

"Come back to bed with me, Love," he said as he ran his nose along my jaw. "Please", he said kissing the spot under my ear.

"Mmm, Edward," I moaned as he pressed his body against mine. He knew just what he was doing to me.

"Bella," he whispered in my ear, "I need you so much."

"Edward, I can feel someone else is up this morning," I said as I pulled him back inside with me.

"You have no idea, how up he is, Bella," Edward said as we laid back on the bed.

Edward laid on top of me as his lips found mine and we kissed. He moved his tongue across my bottom lip, begging for entrance, which I willing gave him. His tongue slid into my mouth and our tongues danced together, neither one claiming dominance. Our hands found their way into each others hair, securing us to each other. I loved the feel of his hair in my hands. So soft and silky. Pulling him down closer, we broke apart to catch our breath. His lips never left my skin, they travelled down my jaw to my neck.
He kissed his way down my neck, leaving open mouthed, wet kisses along the way.

He moved down the bed and started moving my shirt up. He placed open-mouthed kisses on my stomach, then he continued back up my body.

"Edward ", I whispered as he ran his nose up the side of my breast.

"Mmm, Bella, you taste so good," Edward murmured against my skin, as he slid my hardened nipple into his mouth. I arched my back, effectively pushing my breast further into his face.
He reached across with his other hand and gently rolled the other nipple between his fingers.

I moaned loudly at the feeling. I could feel him smiling against my breast. Edward raised his head to look up at me. "God, you're so beautiful, My Bella," he said as he latched on to my other nipple. Sucking so gently as he played with the other one.

"Edward, I need more please," I whimpered. He slid his hand down and pulled my boy shorts off before he moved his hand down between my legs to feel the wetness there.

"Mmm, so wet for me, Love," he said softly.

"Always, only for you Edward," I replied as I pushed his boxers down as far as I could, then used my feet to get them off the rest of the way. I felt his hard length against my stomach.

"Edward. Please, Baby", I said.

"Anything for you, Love," he said as he lined himself up with my entrance. He slid slowly into me, filling me up inch by inch. It always amazed me at how well he fit inside me.
It was like we were made for each other.

We made love slowly, loving the feel of each other. We kissed each other deeply as we moved together, each thrust brought us closer to the edge. I could feel that familiar feeling starting in my stomach.
So close. I grabbed on to Edward's shoulders as I let go, screaming his name and rocking against him. I watched Edward fall over the edge, his hair falling into his eyes as he trembled against me and mumbled my name again and again. Edward laid on my chest as he regained his breath.

"Bella, I love waking up this way, " he said as he smiled up at me.

"Me too, Edward. I love you so much," I said as I ran my fingers through his hair.

"I love you too, My Bella," he said kissing me as he pulled me up with him to shower. We washed each other, along with touching and kissing every inch of each other. I initiated round two while in the shower.

Once the water ran cold, Edward and I got out and towel dried each other. We got dressed, him in his work clothes and me in my sweats and his old college football jersey with his name on the back.

"One day, Bella, my last name will be yours," he said looking over at me as I pulled my hair up into a ponytail.

"Yeah, Edward, I m looking forward to it. Mrs. Isabella Cullen," I said reaching up to kiss his lips.

"It has a nice ring to it," he says as he walks us into the kitchen with a smirk on his lips.

I got out the cereal and bowls as he poured us juice and coffee. We ate in comfortable silence, as I thought about the weird feeling in my stomach. Everything felt odd to me that morning and I didn t know why. Usually, our friend Alice gets the weird vibes, but that day it was me. I d had this feeling since I woke up and I couldn't make it go away.

After we finished eating and Edward took our bowls to the sink, he looked over at our calendar and reminded me about my doctor's appointment.

"Thanks, Edward, I won't forget," I said as I wrapped my arms around him. "I wish you didn't have to go into work today," I said looking up at him.

"Me too. I'd rather stay here and make love to you on every surface in every room," he said wiggling his eyebrows at me.

"I know you would, Edward," I said, "but you have to work."

I walked him to the door and he pulled me into his arms. "I'll see you tonight, Love," he said as he kissed me passionately.

"Okay. I love you, Edward," I said hugging him tightly to me.

"I love you too, My Sweet Bella," he said as he walked to his car. He got in, blew me a kiss and waved as he drove off toward Manhattan.
I watched as he drove away and wished this horrible feeling would leave me.
