~Cure for a Broken Heart~


Valentine's Day 2013

From across the room, I could almost hear my Chem-lab book taunting me, daring me to ignore it. Now wasn't the time to be studying, writing essays, or thinking about lab assignments. It was a little after nine and I'd just finished watching this week's episode of Fringe and at this point I was so bored, I could hardly keep my eyes open – nothing a little self-love, caffeine, and some Ben and Jerry's wouldn't fix.

Stretching and yawning, I trudged over to the freezer in favor of the ice cream, and grabbed a pint from the back. Had I not been keeping it hidden behind the frozen veggies, my new roommate would have eaten it days ago.

So yeah… I finally got rid of Vicki. The last few months having her here hadn't been all bad. For one – mere days after Valentine's Day last year, Vicki caught Riley cheating on her with Bree – Riley's friend James' girlfriend. Turns out, James didn't take too kindly to that betrayal and beat the shit out of Riley. He wasn't permanently injured or anything, so I allowed myself to feel a little satisfaction that he got some kind of punishment for being such a douche.

Vicki and I were never really friendly again, but she did at least apologize. For the last few months I barely ever saw her, the way she always tiptoed around me. In June, when she finally moved out, things were great – I spent the summer on a road trip with my boyfriend, much to his mother's chagrin. She wasn't all that pleased with the fact that he was dating an older girl, but after a while she seemed to warm up to me.

Going on a road trip with Edward had been a bit of a test. Edward didn't know this, but I was scheming a little. I knew we were great together as a couple – I just wanted to see if we could live together.

It was a bit too soon to have him moving in for the fall semester, so I rented out the room to a girl named Heidi who was here for her semester abroad. It worked out well, since I knew I wouldn't be without a roommate to help with money, and said roommate would be leaving just in time for my boyfriend to move in.

Since Edward moved out of the dorms and into my bed, things have been pretty wonderful. Now they weren't always hearts and flowers but he made me happy, and we loved each other.

"Bella?" The sound of Edward's smooth voice carried through the apartment, startling me from my thoughts. Excitedly, I climbed up from the couch and ran over to greet him.

"God I missed you, baby," he said pulling me in for a searing kiss. Had he not been holding me up, my legs might have buckled beneath me.

"I missed you too. How was work?" I asked, wrapping my arms around his neck.

"It was fine, except for the fact that I had to leave my girl home alone on Valentine's Day – our fucking anniversary of all days," he muttered angrily.

"Don't worry about it, baby. Were together now, that's all that matters," I whispered nuzzling his neck, loving the way his presence electrified me.

"I want you," he rasped, his hands sliding down to cup my ass. That night we didn't even make it to the bedroom before we began tearing at each other's clothes.

Edward was always ready for me, and that night he didn't disappoint. I cried out as he slid inside, fucking me hard and fast against the wall. Giving and taking – fulfilling both our primal needs.

After that, Edward carried me to bed and took his time worshiping my body making me feel exactly the way he said he would "Happy Valentine's Day, baby," he whispered against my neck, pushing inside me slow and sweet. Promising me forever.
