"Seriously? You've never done this before, Edward?"
"Um, no. Is that bad?"
"No…just unexpected. I love that I'm your first. Don't be nervous, I'll walk you through it."
"I'm at your mercy, baby. So…?"
"So first we strip."
"Yup. Start at the top and work your way down."
"Okay, but you need to strip too."
"Of course. I wouldn't let you do it alone."
"Wow. That looks really inviting."
"You like it bare?"
"Fuck, yeah. I want to dive in head first."
"Don't you dare. At least not yet."
"Fiiiine, I'll wait. Now what?"
"We need to cover it. Take this and put it on. Make sure it's secure all the way around."
"Okay….Ugh. Bella, this isn't working. It's too big. It just won't fit."
"That's weird. It's the right size. Let me try….there. You just have to make sure it's completely covered."
"Where did you learn to do that?"
"Years of practice. Just relax. If you fight it, you'll put it on wrong and it won't stay put. Or it could rip."
"Wouldn't want that. So what now?"
"Well it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Just do what comes naturally."
"Okay, here goes nothing."
"Good…..that's it. You're doing it, babe. Hold on, I need to pull a little towards me."
"Stop, that's too much!"
"Dammit. Sorry for tugging so hard, Edward. Okay, now take your fingers and run then all over the folds. See? Like this."
"Am I doing it right?"
"Uh huh. Make sure you get them all, inner and outer. Just…like…that. Use your whole hand. That's nice."
"So smooth. Ready to move on?"
"What? Oh, sorry. Just needed to catch my breath."
"Am I wearing you out, baby?"
"Nope, just temporarily dazed. Okay, now for the big finish. I'm going to spread and you are going to line it up with the opening. Then you are going to just slide it in. Nice and easy and make sure it doesn't go in crooked."
"Got it. Nice and easy and …uh…not…crooked….Fuck! It's stuck half-way.
"Just shimmy it in."
"Shimmy, push, shake. It doesn't matter how you do it, just get it fully sheathed."
"It still won't go all the way in."
"Ugh…okay it's in. Now what?"
"Do it again…there you go, you got it. Okay, again."
"Good. Lay down. I want to get on top."
"Oh my God. Fuuuuck, that feels soooo good."
"I could stay here forever."
"Tell me about it. I knew you could do it."
"Thanks for being patient, baby. I know I sucked."
"No, you just need practice."
"Was I really that bad?"
"Oh, no. I just can't believe you've never made your own bed before. You're twenty-three, for God's sake. I so blame your mother."
"Hey, I may be inexperienced at making a bed, but I can tell you for sure that I am an expert at messing one up. You know what I mean?"
"Not really. Come here and show me, baby."
