Plot Generator—Phrase Catch: Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
"Edward, you're sure they'll be okay?" I asked one last time as we pulled away from Esme and Carlisle's house. I knew it was insane to think Cassie or Henry wouldn't be, but we had never left them for very long before and five days was a long time.
"They'll be fine baby. If not, my mom will call and we'll head straight home," he swore, as I tried to breathe. "Besides, it's too last minute to back out on me now; it is our anniversary after all." The reminder put a complete smile on my face.
"I can't believe it's been ten years," I laughed as a mirage of memories played in my head.
"Best ten years of my life," Edward announced, and I agreed wholeheartedly.
I still hated flying and rental car places were so slow, but once we arrived and checked into the MGM Grand, I felt like I could relax. It had been ten years since we'd been in Vegas, and as we discussed places to go and things to do, coming back to Vegas just felt right. Leaving our children was the hardest part, but Esme and Carlisle volunteered to take them without a second thought.
"Our honeymoon suite, my dear," Edward announces as the door glides open, and I was greeted with the same suite that we stayed in the night after our wedding. The same suite he took my virginity in ten years prior.
"They haven't changed much," I joked, as Edward chuckled behind me. We were still awaiting the bellhop, but Edward's hands brushed up and down the sides of my body setting a fire in their wake. Ten years later, and my body still exploded with the simplest touch.
"I love you," he whispered as his lips ghosted mine, and I momentarily wondered how much of the city we'd be seeing on this trip. At the very least, we'd have to see if our bench was still there. Of course, before we could go any further, there was a knock on the door and a young kid bringing out luggage inside. Edward brushed off his attempts at showing us around and handed him a nice tip to send him on his way with a smile. "So, room service?" Edward asked with his eyebrows raised the second the door shut. I could tell by the smirk on his face that he and I were thinking the exact same thing.
"I seem to recall room service being almost all we ate last time," I reminded him, "I think it was all part of your tactics."
"My tactics?" Edward feigned hurt as he lifted his hands to his chest with a gasp.
"Yeah, to keep me in bed," I pointed out, as he smirked. "Not that I'm complaining, but…"
"Well, it did work," he teased before I pulled a pillow off the bed and chucked it at him. "Hey, not that again, I'm too old for that now."
"Hmmm, that's a shame, if you're too old for pillows, you're certainly too old for…" Before I could finish my statement, Edward moved in long strides to cover my mouth with his. As he sucked the air straight out of my lungs, he pulled back and ordered, "Don't you dare finish that sentence." I nodded breathlessly, as clothes began to fly.
We glided up the bed with far less effort than we had the first time and with far more experience under our belts, it didn't take long before kisses became touching that turned into connecting with hips bucking in sync followed by moans, groans, and breathless gasps.
Ten years later and Edward could still make me scream in the heat of passion as our bodies wrapped together as one. Without the fear of children walking in, we were free to act as we pleased which included being vocal.
"Edward, I'm…" I couldn't finish my sentence, and I didn't need to as he roared over me. The push and pull of his hips rendered me incoherent, until he collapsed onto my sweat covered body. Minutes passed as we regained our composure, something that took us a little more time now than before.
"Room service?" Edward asked again, and I nodded my head. Room service suddenly sounded amazing.
"Definitely," I agreed. "I still can't believe it's been ten years."
"Time sure is flying," he mused quietly. "Our first night, after you fell asleep, I stayed up for a while and thought about the future as I watched you sleep. Even then I couldn't imagine how perfect our life would turn out, but I knew that night that I was finally with the right person. Holding you that night, God Bella, even now, I simply will never have enough of you."
"You're going to make me cry," I choked up as Edward confessed to thoughts I never knew before. "I remember that night feeling different, and it became everything I never thought I'd have. We really were lucky to end up in this city together."
"Definitely lucky," he replied. "I wouldn't change it for the world, I know that for sure."
"Yeah, me either. I guess that old phrase has nothing on us then, huh?" I joked. "What happens in Vegas, definitely didn't stay in Vegas."
"Nope," Edward popped, "What happened in Vegas gave me the most wonderful woman around."
And then, I cried.
