Finding Love Beyond Betrayal
Today was the day most women dream of, their wedding day.
Here I stood in a dress designed for me by my best friend, Alice Brandon. She hand stitched every single crystal on the dress. She spared no expense.
But here I stood feeling like I was being trapped in a box. I felt as if I was suffocating.
I came to the conclusion that I was not in love with Jacob Black anymore, I totally outgrew him.
What the hell am I going to do?
At any moment I knew my father was going to come to the door to tell me its time, I knew I couldn't go through with it. Not after what I heard at the rehearsal dinner last night.
I went to the restroom, and I heard someone talking about Jacob. It turned out that it was Leah, one of my bridesmaids. She was telling someone how Jacob was marrying me for my money, and that he had something added to the pre-nup I made him sign. She went on to say that if I divorced him he would get half of everything I own. She also said that they have been having an affair and that I was fucking clueless about it.
That's where she was wrong. I did know about them. I wanted to kill the bitch, but it really didn't matter. I was done. At the rehearsal dinner I knew I wasn't going to marry Jacob.
End of flashback
So why am I standing here going to marry Jacob. I'm not sure. I don't know what to do. I'm scared of being alone.
There was a knock at the door, and I said come in.
"Bells, its time," my father said as he stood behind me.
My father was a very wealthy man. He was head of some secret service department of the government. I never really knew what he did, all I know is that I grew up with a lot of money.
I wasn't a snob or anything, I just enjoyed the finer things in life.
I looked up at my father, and contemplated telling him about Jacob. What would my father do? I hoped that if I did tell him, he'd tell me that marrying Jacob was out of the question. But sometimes my father was all about keeping up appearances.
I shook those thoughts from my head and took my fathers hand and placed it through his arm as he lead me from the bridal room.
Taking small steps, cringing with each step I took . I couldn't get rid of this sinking feeling in my stomach, I feeling like I would throw up.
I knew what I had to do, I just can't marry him, I can't go through with the wedding.
The music then started to play and everyone stood up and turned in my direction to look at me.
I could feel my heart racing faster and faster with every step that I took. I could feel my heart thumping harder and harder. I had to stop this, I have to leave.
Halfway down the aisle, I stopped and looked at my dad then I looked at the end of the aisle at Jacob. I turned back to my father.
"Dad, I can't marry Jacob. I'm sorry," I sobbed.
"Bells, what is going on?" he asked in a clipped tone.
"Dad, Jake is sleeping with someone else... he is marrying me to get to your money... I'm sorry dad...I ...I have to go.." I said as I turned around and ran from the church.
I knew Jacob and my father would be close on my heels, as I exited the church I jumped into the first taxi I saw.
"Uhh, excuse me...miss.. um, I don't mean to be rude, but this cab is taken...um ...are you okay, miss?" a velvety voice asked me.
"Oh, I... I am sorry ...I didn't think ...I mean, I didn't know this cab was occupied...I..I." I couldn't help it as the tears started rolling down my face.
"Oh...umm...miss please don't cry...is there anything ... I mean anything I can do or anyplace you want to go to...please just stop crying," he pleaded.
I stopped crying for just one minute and looked up to see a man who's beautiful green eyes were looking at me with compassion and concern.
I couldn't tear my eyes away from his, and was just ...dazzled. "Um... just take me where ever your going. I don't want to be alone."
"Aren't you supposed to be at a church?" he asked with a smirk.
"Yeah, I ran out. I just couldn't do it. So can we go?" I asked him.
"I was going back to my hotel, I'm not sure you want to go there."
I nodded my head as the taxi driver interrupted our conversation.
"Excuse me, the meter is running, are you going or not?" he barked.
"Yes, sorry. The Beverly Willshire Hotel," the green eyed man said looking over at me.
The driver shook his head mumbling about crazy Americans.
I focused my eyes on the man in front of me. What the hell was I really doing? I could have easily found another taxi when I found out this one was occupied. But this man was so mesmerizing and I felt compelled to be near him.
"I guess since we are going to be spending time together, we should introduce ourselves," he laughed.
"Yeah, I guess your right. I'm Isabella Swan, but I go by Bella."
"Beautiful name for a beautiful woman. My name is Edward Cullen," he said as he took my hand in his and brought it to his lips.
He kissed the back of my hand. Wow, that only happens in the movies.
Let me tell you, that small gesture sent chills up and down my spine. Mmm... I wonder how his lips would feel on mine. I could feel myself leaning closer into him.
I pulled away quickly.
"Are you in town for business or pleasure?"
"Both," he smirked. "I was here to meet with some clients about some business and then later this evening I was supposed to go my cousin's reception."
"Funny, so was I," I laughed.
"That you were. You would've captivated everyone's attention.'
"Sure, isn't that how its supposed to be."
"Yeah, I guess it is," he said as his phone chimed.
He flipped it open and read the message there.
"Apparently the reception was cancelled. My cousin didn't say why," he looked puzzled.
Hmm... I wonder who his cousin is. How many wedding receptions could have been cancelled today?
"Oh, so your plans have changed?" I asked, still pondering the whole wedding reception thing. He couldn't be related to Alice, or could he?
I did not have my cell phone or any kind of money on me since I ran from the chapel.
It was nice not having to worry about people getting in touch with me. I could talk them when I'm damn good and ready.
We pulled up the the hotel and he helped me out. When our hands touched I felt like I was on fire.
I pulled away the first chance I got. I looked at him and I could tell that he felt it as well. He just looked at me with a smile.
We walked into the hotel, many people turned to look at us. We walked to the elevator and we went up to the penthouse.
I was not sure what was going to happen next but I just needed to, I don't know maybe just be free.
We reached the door's to the penthouse. He opened the door and he waved his hand for me to go first.
I turned around and looked at Edward.
"Um Edward do you perhaps have something that I could change into?"
"I'm sure I can find something for you."
I watched him walk to the bedroom. I could not describe how I felt. I think I'm happy, excited and angry all at the same time.
Angry with Jacob for cheating and thinking he could get my fathers money. Happy because I was free from him. Excited because I did not have to put up with his shit anymore. He would not get a damn dime from me. He could go bark up someone else's tree for that.
Edward walked back out and said, "about all I have is some boxer's and a t-shirt."
"That will do just fine. Do you mind if I take a shower and get this stuff off my face?"
"Not at all. Make yourself at home. I will order us something to eat."
I smiled and nodded my head as I walked to the bathroom.
Once in the bathroom, I stripped off the wedding dress and turned on the shower.
I looked in the mirror and wondered what the hell I was doing in a strangers hotel room.
For some odd reason being with Edward felt so right. When he touched me it set me on fire but it felt right. Maybe I did do the right thing by leaving Jacob at the alter.
I finished up with my shower making sure that I got all the caked on make-up off my face. I turned off the water and toweled myself dry.
I pulled on the clothes that Edward gave me and I actually felt comfortable. I walked out of the bathroom and went to find Edward.
He was sitting on the couch watching some t.v. and it looked like he had changed as well.
I went to sit down by him and he just looked at me and smiled.
"Hi," I said quietly.
"How do you feel?" he asked as he switched off the t.v.
"I feel better. Thank you for the clothes."
"Your welcome, I ordered some food from room service. And I hope you don't mind I ordered up some clothes for you."
"No that's fine. Thank you."
"Bella, can I ask you something?" he asked with a serious look on his face.
"Sure you can ask me anything."
"Ok, why did you run out on your wedding?" he asked. I knew eventually he would ask that question.
"Well, I found out at the rehearsal dinner that the man I was going to marry was having an affair with one of my bridesmaids and he was only marrying me to get a hold of my father's money."
"Wow, that sucks. I'm sorry he has to be an asshole to let you go," he said as he moved his finger along my jaw. "You're so beautiful."
I could feel my cheeks heating up as his fingers moved along my skin.
It seemed as if he was leaning in to kiss me, but someone knocked on the door.
He moved to get the door.
I watched after him, did I want him to kiss me.
Jacob was the only one I have kissed for the past several years. Stop Bella he is not a part of your life anymore.
Bella was making me feel things that I have never felt before. When I helped her out of the car I felt this fire go through my body. I noticed that she pulled away. Maybe she felt it to.
Something about her had me mesmerized. I was not sure what it was. Something in me said that I wanted to get to know her.
When she asked me if I had anything for her to wear, I felt like jumping for joy. I knew that I had some boxers and a t-shirt but that was about it.
I told her that I'm sure I had something.
When I brought the clothes out she said that was fine and asked if she could take a shower.
I told her that was fine and that I would order some food. While I ordered the food I also ordered her some clothes as well.
While she was showering I changed into something more comfortable as well. I guess since the reception got cancelled I really didn't have anything else planned.
I was kinda glad because that would give me a chance to get to know Bella.
I heard the shower cut off and a few minutes later Bella came and sat next to me.
I asked her the one question I was dying to know. Why did she leaving her own wedding?
Once she told me about the scum cheating on her not with just some girl but with one of her bridesmaids and then he was only marrying her for her father's money.
That was pretty low if you asked me. How in the hell can someone treat this beautiful girl like this. What did she do to deserve this?
Once she finished I rubbed my fingers over her cheek. I felt this pull towards her. In that moment I just needed to feel her lips on mine.
As I went to kiss her someone knocked on the damn door. Room service had very bad timing.
I walked to the door and got the food and the clothes that I got for Bella. As I was walking I could feel her eyes on me.
Once I returned we started eating. Of course we asked each other questions. I was actually enjoying talking to her.
"Edward how come you are so easy to talk to? I feel like I have known you for my whole life."
"Maybe we have some kind of connection."
That was the only thing I could come up with.
As the night went on the closer her and I got. I learned so much.
We decided to watch a movie. We snuggled up on the couch.
A little way into the movie, Bella placed her arm around my waist. I must say that it felt right. I leaned over and kissed the top of her head. She smelled like hotel shampoo but I could smell her as well.
As I kissed her head, she leaned into me more. I could feel her breasts pressing into my side. She felt so right in my arms. She was moving her hand up and down my arm, it felt so good.
I could feel my cock getting hard inside my pants.
A woman hasn't had this affect on me in a long time, and we weren't even doing anything.
The movie got to a particularly hot scene and I looked down at Bella and she had her lip in between her teeth, biting it gently.
That did it. I couldn't take it anymore. I had to feel her lips on mine.
I pulled her lip from between her teeth and looked into her eyes as I leaned in and crushed my lips to hers.
It started out as a soft and gentle kiss, but as she slid her hands up into my hair and tugging roughly I deepened the kiss.
I ran my tongue along her bottom lip, and she opened her mouth. I slid my tongue into her mouth and gently massaged her tongue.
The little moans she was making went straight to my cock. I could feel it straining against the fabric of my sleep shorts.
God, just kissing her had this affect on me. What would happen if we made love.
I laid us down on the couch and I was hovering over her. I never broke the kiss.
I felt her hands run down my back and I shivered and of course the fire I felt earlier was back full force if not more.
I slowly started to move my hand under her shirt, up the side of her stomach and gazed her breast. She shiver and that was the answer I needed to continue.
I rubbed over her nipple and then cupped her breast fully in my hand. It was not overly huge but not small either. It was just the right size for my hand.
I was told once that a hand full was just enough and anything over that is a waste.
I finally pulled away needing to breathe.
"Edward," she breathed out.
"Bella please tell me if you want me to stop."
"No I want this please. Your touch feels so good."
I sat up just a bit and pulled at the hem of her shirt. She got what I was doing and sat up enough for me to take it off.
Once it was off I laid her back down and kissed from her ear to her lips down her neck to her collarbone and finally reaching her nipple of her left breast.
I sucked it into my mouth and bit down on it. She let out a loud moan as well as bucked her hips into me.
She gave me enough friction and it felt so good.
She tugged on my shirt and I finished taking it off for her.
She ran her hands down my chest just above the waist band of my sleep shorts. As she did this I let out a moan.
I looked into her eyes and could see the lust in them. She wanted this just as much as I did.
I knew that I would not last long once I was inside her.
Our make out session was getting to the point that I could not take it anymore.
"Bella I want you. I need to be inside you."
"Then take me Edward please."
That was all I needed to hear.
"Bella I want you to get up and lean over the couch."
She did as I asked.
I looked up at her and watched as her fingers went to her core and started to run her finger over her pussy.
As she was doing this she looked over her shoulder at me. I was stroking myself because what she was doing was so hot.
I ran my hand down her back and asked, "Bella are you sure about this?"
"More sure then anything else in my life."
I placed myself at her entrance and pushed in slowly. Oh god she is so tight. I'm for sure not going to last long.
I started to move faster and harder but not too much that I would hurt her.
She started rocking back into me, meeting each of my thrusts with her own.
"Edward I want you to fuck me hard and fast. Please."
"Ugh...Bella I'm not going to last long."
"I'm not either," she panted out.
I laid over her and started placing open mouth kisses on her neck and her back. She was panting, moaning and screaming my name. I could not help but to be smug with what I was doing.
I was giving her pleasure.
I could that she was getting close so I told her to place one leg on the back of the couch.
Once she did that I could go deeper into her. I knew in this position both of us would not last long.
I started to pound into faster and harder than before. I must have hit that spot that women go crazy when you do hit it.
She screamed out my name.
"EDWARD oh shit, ple...ase c.. w..with me."
I felt her tighten around me and I felt my stomach start to tighten.
"Oh motherfuckingshit ugh BELLA, so g..good so ti..ght. Milk m my co..ck love."
She did milk me for everything that I had at the time. She felt so good being wrapped around my cock. I felt like this was home. Like I never wanted to move.
Bella started to stand up straight. She turned and looked at me. I looked into her eyes. I wanted to make sure there was no regret and I could see none.
"Edward that was just WOW. I never knew that it could feel that good."
"I must say that I agree with 100% on that one."
I pulled her into my arms and kissed her lips passionately.
Our lips fit perfectly together, we moved our tongues against each other. Neither wanting to claim dominance.
Her hands her in my hair as I slipped my hands around her ass, and she wrapped her legs around me as I carried her into the bedroom.
I laid us down as I continued kissing her.
We fit together so well.
I could feel my cock beginning to get hard again. Fuck what was this woman doing to me. I have never came back from an orgasm this fast before.
She could feel me hard against her leg, because she snaked her hand between us and wrapped it around my shaft.
Slowly she slid her hand up and down, as I leaned over and took her nipple in between my lips and sucked hard. I slowly swirled my tongue around the tip as moaned.
My fingers slipped down her stomach, and inched lower as she continued pumping me.
Bella was doing things to me that I have never experienced before. Every woman I have been with was just casual sex. But with Bella there was something there that I could not explain.
I parted Bella's leg as she continued to stroking my cock. My finger found there own way to her wet hot core.
Inserting them I pumped her to her stroking my cock.
I brought her to the edge and then pulled away. I wanted to be inside her when she came.
"Bella love I want you to roll over and face me."
She did as I asked. I pulled her to me so that we are face to face. I pulled her leg over my hip.
"Edward please take me. I need this, I need you."
In one swift move I plunged into her wet core. It felt like heaven. As we are connected I looked into her eyes. She had passion, lust, a little sadness and something else that I could not figure out. It was not the first time I saw it tonight.
She started to kiss me everywhere she could reach. With each kiss there was that fire. I just wasn't sure what it meant.
"Edward you feel so good in me. I wish you could stay there forever," she breathed out.
"Me to love. You feel so right in my arms and with me being connected to you this way."
This round was pretty much like we were making love to one another. That got me worried a little bit.
I was suppose to be leaving to go back home and then made me question if I would ever see her again.
"Shit Edward. So close babe."
I felt her tighten around me and I already had the tightening going on in my stomach so I knew I was close as well.
I reached between us and pressed my thumb to her nub and rubbed it.
She moaned my name and she let her orgasm rock through her. I followed right behind her.
"Edward you don't know how good you feel inside me. I have never felt like this before."
"Me either. It's getting late why don't we get some sleep."
I pulled her close to me and gave her a sweet kiss on her lips. She rolled over on her side and cuddled up to me.
I'm not much of a cuddling kind of guy but with Bella I would do it and it felt so right.
I pulled the covers over us and wrapped her into my arms and fell asleep in no time.
I woke up the next morning and turned and watched Bella sleeping. I think I'm falling for her. How in the hell did that happen.
She was even more beautiful to watch sleeping. I have never seen anything more beautiful then her. She was a natural beauty from inside out. What the hell am I going to do?
She stirred some and turned onto her back and starting stretching.
"Would you like to get something to eat?"
"Um yea, I'm pretty hungry after last night."
"Well I will order some room service and then we can take a shower. How does that sound?"
She just nodded her head. I called and ordered us breakfast.
Finally breakfast came and we sat in silence as we ate. I'm pretty sure she is thinking about the same thing as me. What is going to happen next.
"Love let's get a shower and then we will talk about where to go from here."
"Ok Mr. Cullen but no funny business in the shower," she said and took off running towards the bathroom.
I took off after her. She was in the bathroom and had the water running before I got there.
I pinned her to the wall.
"Miss Swan I would do no such thing as to do any funny busy in the shower. It will defiantly be serious and it will feel good."
I leaned in and kissed her on the lips. She deepened it and pulled her legs to wrap around my waist.
I walked us to the shower and stepped in. I turned around and sat on the bench. I continue to kiss her. When we needed to breath I started to kiss down her neck never letting my lips leave her body.
She started to grind her hips on me. I could not help but to moan. It was giving me the friction I needed without being inside her.
Finally having enough I told her to turn around and sit on my cock.
She did and she started to bounce up and down on me. Hell yea she is riding my cock.
I held her hips as she moved, she was so tight. I loved the feel of her around me.
"Oh Edward you feel so inside me."
She started to move her hands over her breast down her stomach to her pussy. I felt her start to rub her nub and I could feel her other hand go to my balls and started to rub and tug on them.
"Oh shit love. That feels fuckfantastic. Don't stop."
She picked her her pace and started to roll her hips. I felt myself hit her special spot and that was all it took before she jumped off the cliff.
"Fuck EDWARD. Right there. Ugh."
I wrapped my arms around her waist and pumped up into her and let my own release rock through me.
"Mmmm...I'm cumming. BELLA," I screamed her name.
I just sat there and let my breathing become regular again. I could tell that she was doing the same.
Once hers was under control she jumped up and started washing her body. She did not say a word or even look at me.
I could tell something was bothering her. I didn't bother her I just started to wash. I figured she would talk when she was ready.
Once we are both done with the shower. I reached out my hands to grasp hers, and she looked up at me with tears forming in her eyes.
I pulled her into me and held her tight.
"Love what's wrong?"
"Edward I'm scared I don't want to lose what we have. I know that you will leave and go back home and live your life. I just don't want what we have to end."
"Bella, I don't want it to either. I'm sure we could figure it out."
Our confession came to a stop by the pounding on the door.
I pulled on some pants real fast and went to answer the door.
As Edward went to get the door, I thought about last night, never have I slept with a man I didn't know. But there was something about Edward. I felt comfortable with him. He made me feel beautiful, special and most of all loved.
I grabbed his button up shirt and and put it on. I could hear voices in the living room, but couldn't make out the words.
I walked out of the bedroom and looked up to see Jacob standing there with Edward. What the fuck!
Both men turned to look at me. I could see Jacob's eyes darken. Edward just smiled, until Jacob started to speak.
"Bella what the fuck. You leave me at the fucking altar and I find you here with my cousin," he
yelled at me.
I looked at Edward as he yelled at me, and he had a look of shock on his face.
"Love, this is the guy you were suppose to marry yesterday? Fuck."
"Babe, you never asked his name and I really didn't think it mattered. He's a lying fucking bastard that cheated on me and wanted to get a hold of my fathers money."
I look at both of them and I had to get out of there before I let the tears fall.
"I have to go, I have to get out of here," I sobbed out.
I took off towards the door and ran to the stairs. I could not wait for the elevator I didn't want a chance for either one of them to catch up to me.
I ran down the stairs and hoped that I would not fall. Finally I reached the exit and took off outside.
I just ran. I didn't care that I just had a shirt of Edward's and my panties on. I could not break down in front of Jacob or Edward.
I didn't have any money nor a cell phone to call anyone so I would just have to walk.
I walked what felt like forever and came to a park with a bench on it. I sat there for god know how long and just thought about what happened.
How in the hell did I not know that Jacob had a cousin named Edward. This was a really fucked problem.
I felt so drawn to Edward. I felt like I needed him to breathe. He was my safety card per say.
I'm sure after this he would never want to see me again.
I managed to make it home. I don't remember leaving the park much less the walk home.
As I took a shower washing all of last night and this morning off me. I thought about what I found with Edward would never be. I crawled into bed and cried myself to sleep.
