Chapter 41 - Don't You Forget About Me
"I can't believe we got caught again," Emmett says, as he leans against one of the bookshelves in the library.
"I can't believe you ratted us out, douche," Jasper responds, jokingly punching him in the arm.
We all laugh, quietly, of course, not wanting to get caught...again, and spend a few minutes reliving what got us here. For Emmett, Jasper, and Bella, it was Skip Day Part 1 that brought them here the first time. Then, of course, we had our repeat, Skip Day, The Sequel.
That was such a fun day, the perfect way to end our senior year. I wouldn't trade it for anything, even if it meant a month of Saturday detentions, which I know all about. It's moments like those that we will take with us, far past the halls of Ridge High.
"This is where it all began, man." Emmett says, looking around, rubbing his bicep where Jasper punched him. I think he's getting soft.
"I try to think about what our Senior year would have been like, if we hadn't all been in detention together," Rose speaks up, tucked under Emmett's arm.
"What would life, in general, be like," Alice questions. "I don't even want to think about it," she says sadly, shaking her head.
"I'm pretty sure I was the most cynical one in the room that day, but looking back, I'll never say that I don't believe in fate or destiny or any of that shit ever again," I tell them, looking over at Bella. I have to believe that she would have come into my life regardless of detention, but I wouldn't want to take that chance.
She looks so gorgeous. I mean, she does everyday, but looking at her, here, where it all started, it hits me hard. It just puts things into perspective. She takes my breath away, and then gives it right back to me. She's my whole fucking world.
Remembering the two flasks in the pocket of my jacket, I reach in and pull one out, before I get all choked up and Emmett and Jas make fun of me for the next ten years.
"For old time's sake," I say, holding it up. I take a drink and pass it to Bella. The flask slowly makes it's way around the circle, while each person takes a drink and a smile creeps up on their faces. I'm not sure if it's the tequila or the memories. I know for me, it's a little of both.
I reach over and slide my arm around Bella's waist and pull her closer to me.
"So, what should we do," Rose asks, clapping her hands together.
"How about a game of Truth or Dare," I throw out, looking around our little circle. Everyone is looking at the other until we all start laughing.
"Oh, man. I remember how much I wanted to kill you that day," Bella says, giggling into her hand. Damn, she's so cute.
"I remember how much I wanted to kiss you that day," I say, without even thinking or caring about the other four dipshits sitting around us.
Bella leans into me, "Yeah, that, too."
"What did happen in the janitor's closet that day," Emmett asks, wiggling his eyebrows.
"Nothing happened," Bella says, laughing over her words and not sounding very convincing.
"I think that's the day Edward started falling in love," Alice says, drawing out the last part.
I shake my head and laugh, because what else can you do with Alice. She's just...Alice.
"No, that started the first day I saw her in the music store," I admit.
"I know that's the day I realized that I didn't want to spend another day without you," Emmett tells Rose, kissing the side of her head.
There was a time that sappy shit would have made me want to puke, but not anymore. I'm glad that all of my friends have found what I have. True love. Their soul mates. I don't think I would be quite as happy as I am right now, if they hadn't.
"I knew Jas and I would be together forever," Alice chimes in, "just like I always knew that Bella wasn't the Queen Bitch everyone always said she was."
"Thanks, Al," Bella says, sweetly, reaching across to pat Alice's foot.
"I don't know how I would have made it through senior year without you guys," Bella sighs.
"What about us? Are Jas and I chopped liver," Emmett pouts. "Damn, Bells, you really know how to hurt a dude's feelings."
She kicks the bottom of Emmett's shoe. "Stop being such a baby, Em! You know I love you guys," she glances over at Jasper. I see them exchange one of their looks. Jasper knows that she loves him.
I feel my heart swell at how good it feels to be here with all of my friends. Even though, "here" is on the floor of the library at Ridge High, it could be the penthouse of the Ritz Carlton and it wouldn't feel any better...except, my ass could sure use a more comfortable seat.
We hear the library door open and knock into the wall behind it. All of us look around at each other, but we don't say a word. We just sit and wait.
"Why is this door closed? WHY IS THIS DOOR CLOSED?" We hear Seth's voice boom through the library and a few seconds later, his head whips around the end of the bookshelf I'm leaning against. "I knew I'd find you delinquents in here."
"Shut the fuck up, Seth!" I tell him, not wanting to give away our hiding place. I have plans for this spot. I look over at Bella and watch her twirl the end of her hair, as she smiles up at Seth. Quickly, I adjust my throbbing cock without anyone seeing.
"Edward," Seth looks at me seriously, with a warning in his tone. "Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns." Putting his hands up on his head to mimic horns, he begins stomping the ground with his foot, like he's ready to charge.
I can't keep it in any longer. I start laughing so hard I'm crying.
"What the hell, dude," Emmett says, trying to catch his breath from being doubled over laughing. "Banner has been locked away at Shady Pines since before we graduated college!"
"Thank God for that," Bella says, still giggling into her hand, her hair covering her face.
Alice stands up and pats Seth's shoulder, "How about a little howl," she asks, giving him her big puppy dog eyes.
"No way, Alice. Not even for you." Seth starts backing up.
Bella pops up, "How about for me, Seth? I think you still owe me one. I mean, I did give you my bra." She has a point there.
"She took you from geek status to king of the geeks status," Jasper tacks on, building Bella's argument.
"Holy shit, you guys are never going to grow up, are you?" Seth asks, hands in his pockets, looking so much like the Seth I met when I first came to Ridge High, but knowing that he's nothing like that kid who was insecure and unsure of himself. He's definitely changed. He's confident and cool. He's the Seth I always knew he could be.
"Owwwwwwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooo," Seth lets out a long, loud howl, which turns us all into a bunch of laughing hyennas. You'd think we'd been smoking something. What can I say? We're just a bunch of overgrown kids...a nerd, a basket case, a jock, a homecoming queen, a class president, an aspiring fashion designer, and me, the delinquent.
After we polish off the second flask, Seth stands up on wobbly legs and looks at his watch.
"Shit! We better get out of here before Tori sends out a search party."
"Bro, I can't believe you left this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model out there by herself! Are you fucking insane," Emmett exclaims.
Seth shrugs before answering, "I'm not worried. She's traveled the world and met thousands of people; she knows how to handle herself. Thanks again, Rose, for introducing us!"
"You've been married for almost two years, Seth. I think it's time to stop thanking me," Rose laughs.
"I'll never be able to thank you enough. All of you have been the best friends a nerd like me could ask for."
"Well, you're one of the richest nerds I know so, we'll keep you around," Jasper jokes, as he slaps Seth on the back. "Now, let's go get this party started!"
As our group begins to file out of the library, I grab Bella's hand and pull her back towards me.
"Stay," I whisper and I can't help but notice how the skin on her neck instantly breaks out in goose bumps.
Alice is the last one out of the door and, as she turns to see if we are following her, a knowing smile breaks across her face.
"Try to leave the books intact, you two!"
"I make no promises," I yell, as the door shuts behind Alice.
Bella is a giggling and blushing mess as I pull her into the back of the library where the tall shelves are.
"Love, have you had too much to drink?"
"No, I just can't believe we are really doing this!"
I pull her to me, making sure she feels my straining cock up against her stomach. "This has been a fantasy of ours for years. We are so doing this."
Bella looks at me through hooded eyes that look just like melted chocolate and I feel myself grow even harder.
I cup her face in my hands and kiss her hard, pushing my tongue into her mouth. Bella greedily sucks on my tongue and I can't help but groan at the feeling.
I wasn't exaggerating when I said making love in this library is a fantasy of ours, but now that we are here, so many images of what I want to do to Bella are flooding my brain and I'm not sure what to do first. I know we can't stay in here too long, but I want to make this experience as memorable as possible.
I reach down and grab behind her knee, wrapping her leg around my thigh, so that my hand has better access to Bella's pussy. So thankful she is wearing a skirt and thigh-high stockings, my fingers instantly find their favorite place and pull her drenched thong to the side.
"Holy shit, baby," I whisper as I slide two fingers into her warmth.
"I told you I wanted this as much as you did," she smiles at me. I am so fucking lucky this woman is mine.
"I want to taste you."
Bella bites down on her bottom lip and nods her head quickly, moaning when I remove my fingers. I position her body so that she is facing the bookshelf with her legs spread. She seems surprised when I kneel down on the floor between her and the shelf, but as I lift up her dress and move her pussy closer to my face, I feel her shaking in anticipation.
"I love this thong, Baby, but it has to go." I easily rip the flimsy material that is barely covering her and drop it on the floor. Bella grabs onto the shelf behind my head as I grab her ass and pull her to my mouth.
I always love going down on Bella, but this position makes it even more exciting. I'm at the perfect angle to lick, nibble, and suck on her clit while pumping my fingers inside her and I wish I could stay here forever.
Bella starts grinding on my face and I quickly move it side to side to give her more friction. I look up and see that her head is thrown back and her eyes are closed tight. Seeing her like this makes me feel like my heart is about to explode, as well as, my dick so, I add another finger and latch my mouth onto her swollen nub.
I feel her thighs quiver and the shelf behind me shake a little because of her tight grip on it just before she comes. We may be in a library, but there is nothing quiet about Bella's powerful orgasm. The way her body writhes above me while she screams my name almost makes me come right there. There is nothing more beautiful than this.
Bella slowly slides her body down to where she is sitting in on her knees in front of me. I don't know how, but she already has sex hair and it's my favorite look on her.
She barely has time to get the words "best" and "ever" out of her mouth, before I am kissing her again. My naughty girl has no problem tasting herself on my tongue and, again, I am thankful.
"I hope you've recovered long enough, because I have to be inside of you right the fuck now."
"I'm always ready for you," she pants. "You know that."
A low rumble comes from my chest. Hearing her tell me that sends me into overdrive. I pull Bella up and spin her around, so that her back is to the shelf that she was just holding onto for support. Quickly, I unzip my slacks and pull my cock out, giving it a couple of strokes. Bella's hands make quick work of the top two buttons of her shirt. Her sexy as hell lace bra peeks out.
"Don't tease me, Edward," Bella whines, as I run two fingers across her wet slit.
Our eyes lock, both of us mirroring the want and need that we feel for the other. She wraps her arms around my neck and her legs around my waist, and I slide into her, pushing her up against the bookshelf.
"Oh my God," she moans, as I fill her. I hold onto her ass tightly so that I can thrust harder. Bella raises her arms above her head and holds onto the shelf behind her. Her tits bounce right in front of my face and they are spectacular. I'll never get enough of her, like this, in our bed, anywhere. I'll always want her.
"You feel so fucking good, baby," I breathe into her chest, pushing her bra to the side with my mouth. I suck her nipple into my mouth, letting my teeth graze her sensitive skin. Her hips buck, in response.
"I'm gonna come," she cries out into the quiet of the library. "Come for me, baby," I tell her, thrusting deeper. "You know how I love to watch you come undone. It's so fucking sexy." I feel my own orgasm getting close, the tightening in my stomach already starting. If it weren't for a whole hell of a lot of practice, I would have come the second I pushed inside of her. I've thought about this moment way too long.
Bella throws her head back and her mouth is making that perfect 'o' shape. No sound is coming out, but I know that she's riding the waves of her orgasm. I feel the walls of her pussy squeezing my cock tight, which sends me over the edge. I push into her forcefully, one last time, filling her.
We don't move for a while. I just hold her close to me, breathing her in, allowing her a chance to come back to me. I look up to see a wicked smirk on her face and hooded eyes looking back at me.
I slowly pull out of her, immediately missing her warmth. She unlocks her legs from my waist and tests her strength, as she gradually puts weight on them.
"Are you ok? I didn't hurt you, did I?" I ask, smoothing her skirt down.
"Definitely not, Edward. That one will go down in the history books," she pulls me to her and kisses me good and hard.
"I love you so much, Beautiful."
"I love you, too, Handsome."
Bella goes the restroom to clean up and try to make herself look like she wasn't just fucked six ways to Sunday, while I straighten up the few books that we knocked off the shelf. I'm a little surprised we didn't do more damage but I guess it's a good thing.
I see a tiny scrap of lace out of the corner of my eye and I quickly pick it up, stuffing the thong into my pocket as Bella walks back into the library.
"Oops! Can't forget these," Bella says, picking up the flasks and handing them to me. Shit, if I get caught with these empty flasks and a wet, ripped up thong in my jacket, I'll never live it down. Who am I kidding? It'll only boost my reputation even more.
After surveying the library one last time, Bella and I walk down the hall, slowly heading for the gym. We are both quiet as we stroll, hand in hand, thinking back on our high school years and everything that has happened since. We'll never forget this place.
Eventually, we can hear the thumping of dance music and we know we're about to hit another milestone.
Walking under the huge banner that reads "Welcome back, Class of 1985!", I pull Bella's hand to my mouth and kiss it.
It only takes a few seconds before we hear Emmett announce, "Here they are, everyone! The King and Queen of our 10 year high school reunion: Edward and Bella Masen!"
The sound of applause is deafening and I can't help but punch the air above my head with my fist, as my wife and I walk up to the podium to accept our crowns.
As I look out into the crowd of my peers and see my best friends, who have loved and supported me these last 10 years, and then look to my side at my partner...my wife...my love, Bella, one thought enters my mind:
Damn, it's good to be king!
