Chapter 13

Right then, I wanted to die.

Anything would be better than the shame I was feeling right then. Why on earth would Emmett shout that out in front of everyone?

Oh yeah, that's right, because he's a dick.

"E, shut the fuck up!" I sneered at him.

Emmett started laughing at me.

"Oh check out the tiger, see what a bit of meat can do to a pussy." Emmett chuckled out.

I was going to kick his ass, what the hell was his malfunction?

"Emmett, shut it!" Rosalie said to him while clipping him around the head.

I looked at Alice to see her giggling quietly into her hand while Jasper nudged her shoulder.

The fuckers!

"Come on Bella, ignore your ass of a brother." Rosalie said while walking over to me, grabbing my arm and dragging me off into the kitchen.

"Did you score then?" I heard Emmett ask Edward as they walked into the living area.

"I swear I'm going to kill my brother." I groaned quietly to Rose.

"Bella, you know he just likes to get a rise out of you." Rose said while passing me a big ass glass of wine.

"Yeah, but why does he always know when to say the wrong thing? It's like he was born with this fuckery instinct and he uses it to his full advantage." I said while shaking my head in shame at the thought of him verbalizing what Edward and I had actually been up to.

"Look.." Rose said while turning to face me. "I'm not going to ask what went on with you and Edward, but it's pretty obvious what did happen. Just roll with it B."

"Easier said than done though isn't it?" I replied.

After about five minutes of small talk, and thankfully no more mention of me and Edward, Rose called everyone to the table.

We all took our seats, and I tried to distance myself from Edward, but that idea fell flat on its ass.

"Hey Edward, can we swap seats?" Alice asked from my side to across the table to Edward.

"Um, yeah sure." He replied slightly confused.

Alice looked at me and fucking winks. She winked at me.

I honestly didn't know what the hell was going on with my family. I was thinking that double homicide sounded good.

We all sat around the table and fell into casual conversation. We discussed how we had enjoyed our day in town, and we talked about how everyone couldn't wait to be off next week. The entire family had booked three weeks off from work, as next week was going to be seriously busy.

Rosalie's cooking was out of this world, we more or less ate in silence throughout the main meal and dessert, all enjoying the company and food.

"Hey B, can you remember the time that you snuck out on the piss with Jennifer and mum caught you throwing up in the street?" Emmett chuckled at me from across the table once all the plates had been cleared away by Rosalie and myself.

"E, do you really want to play the 'Who can shame who the most game?'" I asked him with a smirk while sitting back in my seat.

Emmett jutted out his chin and said simply "Bring it."

I shook my head slightly, I knew so many things about Emmett and he wanted me to broadcast them to everyone at the table? I knew that my brother was thick on times, but that just took the biscuit.

"Did you tell Rosalie about the time you drunk the bottle of peach schnapps?" I asked.

Alice burst out laughing as soon as the words left my mouth and Emmett went a shade of red.

"You wouldn't." Emmett challenged.

"What's my silence worth brother dearest?" I asked mischievously.

"What?" Rosalie shouted. "No fucking way, B you have to tell us."

"Yeah tell us Bella." Edward said while nudging my shoulder.

I couldn't help but notice that Edward had starting calling me Bella. I looked at Edward quickly and caught a sparkle in his green eyes.

"I don't know you guys..." I trailed off, feigning uncertainty while pretending to see something really interesting on the table cloth.

"Oh B, you can't leave us hanging like this." Jasper whined from across the table.

I looked at Alice to get her opinion on it.

"Be prepared for backlash if you tell them." Alice said while trying to look serious, but failing when she burst out laughing at the end of her sentence.

"Come on Bella, you've got to tell me." Carlisle said with a wink.

Fuck! That man isn't doing anything to diffuse the attraction that my fanny has with his face.

"Come on Bella, let's get him back." Edward said quietly into my ear.

The feeling of his breath on the side of my face sent shivers down my body straight to my already tingling (thanks to Carlisle's wonder wink and the good loving that Edward had given me) lady parts.

"Come on B, don't do this to me." Emmett pleaded.

I looked at Emmett trying to pull a puppy dog innocent face, shame it didn't work.

"Emmett drank an entire bottle of peach schnapps which he was allergic too, unbeknownst to him at the time, but it gave him an awful side effect." I said calmly while looking into my brothers pleading eyes.

"B once pissed herself while playing hide and seek because she didn't want to be found." Emmett spat out.

"Emmett, she was five." Alice said to my defence.

I know that he was trying to shame me into keeping quiet, but him throwing this stuff out was making me more determined to embarrass his big ass.

Just as I was about to blurt out the rest of the story, Emmett beat me to it.

"B got accused of skiing!"

My eyes went so wide that I'm surprised that they didn't fall out of my head.

Alice looked at me in total shock and turned to Emmett and asked,

"How do you know about that?"

"Never mind that, what's skiing?" Edward asked while looking at me with a huge grin on his eager fucking face.

This was too much! My stomach had dropped to my feet and my face was ablaze. I could feel sweat starting to gather on my top lip.

This was not happening right now, it was the only thing that I have ever really been ashamed of, and I never even did it to begin with.

"I'll keep quiet if you do." Emmett said smugly while he crossed his arms over his chest.

"Are they always like this?" An amused Esme asked Alice.

"Always." Alice replied and looked at us as if we were little children.

"Emmett got so drunk off the peach schnapps that he shit the bed and then when he tried to sneak the sheets into the washing machine, mum tried getting the sheets off him and he succeeded to cover mum in shit!" I said quickly and shouted out 'shit' at the end.

I got the words out quickly, like ripping off a plaster, get the words out there quick and await the pain that you know is sure to follow.

"Skiing with 2 men, or should I say boys." Emmett said while making the motion with his hands of wanking off two people either side of him.

"I NEVER DID THAT!" I shouted out at him, "And I was 15." I mumbled out at the end.

The Cullen's just looked around the table at each other and then at me and Emmett shooting daggers at each other with our eyes while Alice sat there looking terrified.

Edward starting sniggering at the side of me and I turned to look at him, whatever expression was on my face set him off into a fit of laughter and before I knew it, the rest of the table burst out laughing too.

"Emmett shits the bed and Bella is ambidextrous." Carlisle said while trying to look serious, but failing miserably.

I looked at Alice, and her face was buried in Jasper's shoulder and she was shaking with laughter.

"Your mother had her hands full with you three." Esme giggled out.

When she realized that she said 'hands full' she burst out laughing, and I couldn't help but laugh along with her.

"Nice one Mam." Edward said while nudging Esme, who was sitting on the other side of him.

"I do try." Esme giggled out while taking a sip of her wine.

"Your guys are terrible." I said while trying to catch my breath.

"Be sure to break out the rubber sheets Rose." Jasper sniggered.

"Screw you guys." Emmett said.

We all sat round the table giggling quietly and trying to catch our breaths.

"So come on you guys, your turn." I said while looking at Rosalie.

"Sorry B, nothing that exciting ever happened with us." Rose said in reply to my request.

"No my kids were ridiculously well behaved." Esme said slightly smug.

"What a load of boring twats." Emmett said, while shaking his head in disappointment.

"Well from the sounds of things E, you and Bella got into enough trouble for all of us." Edward said while placing his arm over the back of my chair.

I could tell that he was trying to be all smooth with the move, but I clocked Alice noticing the movement.

"Yeah, Alice was the goody two shoes of the family." Emmett said while giving Alice a wink.

"Well someone had to be." Alice said with a shrug.

Alice might have looked like the perfect innocent daughter from the outside, but I have seen a side of Alice that not many people have bared witness to, and it would put Emmett to shame.

"So what are your plans for tomorrow?" Esme asked Alice and I.

"Um, nothing planned for the morning, but Jasper was on about taking us out and about tomorrow afternoon." Alice answered.

"Yeah, well you'll have all our company next week." Edward said to her with a wink.

What's with all the winking going on at this table? Are people having miniature strokes and none of us are realizing?

All of a sudden I was feeling extremely tired, all this banter and bitching had tired me out. Oh yeah, and the good fucking that Edward gave me earlier helped too.

"Peeps, I'm ready to call it a night." I say while looking at my watch and being totally surprised that it was getting close to 10:30pm.

"Me too." Alice said from across the table.

"Actually I think we should all call it a night." Jasper said while stretching his arms up.

We all got up from the table and started to make our way to the front door.

"Don't forget about the BBQ tomorrow." Esme said while giving me a hug goodnight.

I pulled back from the hug and looked at her "You haven't got a pond have you?"

Esme burst out laughing, and Carlisle placed his hand around her waist and held her close to him.

To see them still so affectionate and obviously in love after all these years, was a brilliant sight to see. I could only imagine my mother's face if my father tried to be openly affectionate with her in public, she would shit a brick! Being the prude that she was.

"No, no pond Bella, you'll be perfectly safe." Esme said while trying to catch her breath.

"Good, right well I'm off before I do something else to embarrass myself." I said while making my way down the garden path.

"Hang on B!" Alice shouted, catching up with me and linking her arm through mine.

We walked in silence towards the green. We could hear Edward and Jasper talking behind us.

Every now and again Alice would look at me and smile. It was one of those knowing shy smiles, like she knew something that I didn't. Usually I would push the subject, but right then, all I wanted to do was go to bed and sleep.

"Are you in my bed tonight?" I asked Alice as we waited by the front door for one of the boys to open it.

"No...too tired...need sleep." Alice said, yawning.

And of course, with yawns being contagious I let out a huge yawn myself, but I was totally shocked when Edward put is finger in my mouth while I was in mid yawn and said,"Yawn rape!"

He was obviously pleased with himself for this, but I was at a total loss at what the hell had just happened.

"Eh?" I asked confused.

Jasper was giggling quietly to himself as opened the front door and held it open for us to walk in.

"It's a stupid game that Edward, Emmett and Fudge have got going on." Jasper said.

"Yawn rape?" I asked.

"Yeah, when the person's mouth is open wide mid yawn, you just place a finger in their mouth, not touching anything, and say 'Yawn rape'. It's that simple." He said casually.

"Simple is about right." Alice giggled out.

Men, or should I say, Boys!

I could imagine Emmett doing something that childish, but Edward is supposed to be a primary school teacher and yet here he is 'Yawn raping' someone. The Welsh were weird!

"Night everyone." I said with a slight chuckle to myself.

I made my way up the stairs to my bedroom. I took out my contact lenses and quickly changed into my pj's and sat up on the bed under the covers and grabbed Jasper's manuscript.

I managed to read a few lines before there was a knock on the door.

"Come in." I said while looking over the top of my glasses at the door.

Edward.

"I didn't know you wore glasses." He said slightly surprised while sitting at the end of my bed.

"Can we talk?" He asked slightly nervous.

"Sure." I said simply, placing the manuscript on the bedside table.

I mean what was I supposed to say to that request? Nothing I could say really, the subject needs to be broached, but that doesn't mean I particularly wanted to talk about it.

We both sat there looking at each other waiting for one of us to start the conversation. I refused to start it, seeing as he was the one that came here to talk about it.

"So..." Edward mumbled nervously.

"So..." I copied.

Edward started picking at the seam of his trousers, while I just looked at him. He looked so nervous and unsure of himself. I couldn't help but see how vulnerable he looked.

"I'm sorry." He mumbled quietly.

"For what?" I asked just as quiet.

"The bathroom." He said while still looking at everywhere but at me.

I folded my arms across my chest.

"Well I'm not." I said firmly.

I mean truthfully, it wasn't a bad experience, far from it. Maybe the timing was a little shitty, seeing as we've only known each other for a few days and he ended up giving me a good rodgering against the bathroom wall, but still.

Once Edward heard the words leave my mouth, he looked at me.

"Really?" He asked slightly shocked.

"Why would I be sorry about that?"

"Well you know..." Edward trailed off.

"Know what?" I asked, getting slightly fed up.

"The fact that I jumped you in the bathroom." He said meekly.

"Edward, if I remember correctly, I asked you if you were going to kiss me and you asked me if I was sure about us doing it, and I'm pretty sure that I said that I was."

I honestly didn't understand what was going on, I thought that we would be discussing about what's going to happen in the next few weeks, not apologize for what happened.

I had no regrets, maybe he did.

"Look Edward, if you're regretting this..."

I didn't get to finish my sentence before Edward cut in.

"No Bella, I don't regret it at all." He said while moving up the bed and grabbing one of my hands from across my chest.

"I just wanted to apologize for my behaviour; I wasn't much of a gentleman." He said while looking me square in the eyes.

"If I remember correctly Edward, you were a perfect gentleman." I said wickedly with a waggle of my eyebrows.

And then there was the smile, the crooked shy grin spread across his face.

"So you're not mad that I practically jumped you?" Edward asked me nervously.

"Edward...you can jump me anytime." I replied with a giggle.

"Really?" He asked with raised eyebrows.

"Well not quite anytime, I mean I don't think your parents would appreciate it if you humped me at their BBQ tomorrow." I laughed out.

Edward started laughing along with me and the nervous tension that was in the room was gone.

"So how about I take you out on Saturday?" Edward asked while rubbing circles with his thumb on the back of my hand.

"What, like on a date?"

"Yeah, why not? I mean we've already had sex, can't help but think we've done things a little bit backwards." Edward said with a chuckle.

Can't argue with that logic.

We have gone about things arsed backwards, I mean we've had sex before we've even been out on a date.

The first time we met was in a hospital room and then I accused him of being a stalker, then I got pissed and pretty much made a total fool of myself (as usual). It's been all sorts of fuckery since Wednesday, between me and Alice fleeing London because of Jacob, and the fact that I walked in on Edward in the shower, twice.

"Ok, sure." I answered with a nod in agreement. "What have you got planned?"

"That would be telling Bella." Edward said with a sexy wink that made me want to throw him back on the bed and hump him silly.

We sat there exchanging shy smiles for a few minutes until Edward cleared his throat and said,

"Right well, I'm off to bed." He said while standing.

"Okay." I said simply.

Edward was looking at me and then place his hand either side of my waist on the bed and leaned into me while still looking me in the eyes.

"Good night Bella." He said gruffly when his lips were inches from my mouth.

I had lost the use of my brain at that point, and just nodded at him.

Edward chuckled and smiled just before his lips met mine.

We exchanged a few gentle kisses before I deepened the kiss by tracing my tongue along his bottom lip. He then opened his mouth to me and his tongue found mine.

My hand came up to his cheek while our tongues caressed each other, while his knees came onto the bed and settled between my legs.

He then shifted his body so that he was lying on top of me and I shuffled down the bed so that I was flat on my back, all the while our mouths not missing contact with each other.

"Edward." I managed to whisper out between kisses.

"Bella." Edward said quietly in reply.

We laid on my bed and gently kissed for what seemed like hours, just kissing.

I hadn't had a snogging session like that in years, and there wasn't anything particularly sexual about it. We were enjoying kissing each other and neither of us felt the need to push it to progress any further.

Eventually I pulled away after my jaw started to ache.

"That was nice." I said while trailing my fingers along his jaw line.

"It was." He replied with a lazy grin.

Edward shifted his body so that he was lying at the side of me. He rested his head on my chest and wrapped one of his arms around my waist and tangled one of his legs with mine.

I started to run my fingers through his silky hair and I could hear his breathing evening out.

"You tired?" I asked him quietly.

He hummed in reply, already too far gone to answer properly.

I leaned over and turned the lamp off at the side of my bed and settled down with Edward for the night.

It was amazing to be laying here with this beautiful man and felt totally relaxed about it. None of that unsure how to act bullshit, he's seen me make a fool of myself on more than one occasion in the last few days, yet here he was asleep at the side of me.

Not needing to be having sex and then run off, just happy to kiss and cuddle and just be.

I could get used to this, but I knew that all too soon I'd be going back home, but I'll enjoy it while I can.

I mean we both deserve to be happy, even if it's only for now.

...

So there were a few shaming stories there...can you tell which one is mine?!
