Chapter 12

EPOV

While my beautiful fiancée was asleep, I was up, looking over the letter she received at school.

I was not sure if the police could help us.

We had no proof that James had damaged her car.

I knew I could not kill him, but I wanted him gone.

How dare he hurt Bella?"

I was going to give my dad a call tomorrow.

Perhaps he could think of a solution with me.

I was relieved that she was now taking anti anxiety medication.

The doctor felt we had a good chance of having a baby.

She would be a terrific mom.

I was tired of looking at the letter.

I put it away so I could study my girl.

The moonlight was on her face.

She looked angelic

As I watched Bella, I saw her face contort,

She began to whimper.

"No...no, pl...please don't hurt ,,me."

I kneeled beside her.

"Beautiful, I'm here. He won't hurt you."

She was still crying.

"Let me see your sweet brown eyes, my sleeping beauty."

I whispered those words against her lips before I kissed her.

"Edward, hold me."

I briefly saw her eyes before she wrapped her arms around my neck.

Her body was shaking.

"He...he was..tr..trying to rape me."

"Never, baby. That will never happen, not as long as I'm breathing."

I cradled her body tightly and kissed any inch of her exposed skin I could touch.

"Tell me something to calm me down, Edward."

I took her face in my hands and rubbed her tears away.

"Bella, I want you to think about our wedding night. I will carry you carefully to our bed, and I will make the sweetest, most gentle love to you. We'll hold each other so tightly that we'll have to make our baby that night. Now let me hold you and help you fall back into a more peaceful rest, sweet girl."

She pressed her lips to mine hungrily, our tongues meeting, touching.

I set her back on the bed, never breaking our kiss.

Her grip on me was tight, as if she was still afraid of being hurt.

"You're safe, baby. Let me take care of you."

I kissed her mouth, her cheeks, her neck.

She wrapped her legs around my waist, my cock pressing against her hip bone.

"Please make love to me, Edward. I need to feel you inside me."

After adjusting my body slightly, my cock slid inside her pussy slowly.

"That feels so good, love."

I pushed in as far as possible, relishing in her tightness.

"Mmmmm, yes Bella."

I looked into her eyes, getting lost in their beauty and wonder.

She had a smile on her face as I took her repeatedly.

"More, please, Edward."

I placed my lips on her neck, sucking on her sweet skin.

Her hips bucked against me as I felt her walls tighten around my cock.

"Fuck, yes...yes."

I continued to pull in and out, my balls getting tighter.

When I felt her tongue flick over my earlobe, I came hard, my cum spilling deep inside her pussy.

Her name was the only word that I could say.

We were gasping for air as we clung to each other.

"I'm...I'm so in ...love with you, Edward."

I kissed her lips tenderly.

"I'm in love with you, too, beautiful," I said, whispering against her lips.

Once I had pulled out, we spooned together and fell asleep.

The next few days went by in a quiet manner.

Bella called her parents to arrange dinner plans.

They decided it would be best for them to visit us in Forks.

We were going to have dinner at my place.

Most of the time, we were at my place because Bella told me she felt safer here.

James did not know my address, and I would do anything to make her feel protected.

I told my father about him, but the police would not be able to help us, since we had no concrete proof that it was him who damaged her car.

Once school was over Friday afternoon, Bella and I went to store to get what we needed for dinner.

She wanted to make roasted chicken and sautéed vegetables.

We also picked up a strawberry shortcake for dessert.

Bella insisted on a bottle of strawberry sauce, too.

There was a sparkle in her eye when she asked.

Who was I to say no to her?

We finished up quickly and returned home.

I took in the groceries while Bella put the chicken in the oven.

As much as she tried to deny it, I knew she was anxious.

We had just enough time before her parents arrived for me to do something about that.

I wanted her to be relaxed not anxious.

"Baby, come upstairs with me."

"Why?"

"Because you need to relax. Let me rub your back."

"Now that you say that, that would be helpful."

I had her to lay down once we were in the bedroom.

"Let me get your shirt off."

I took it down her shoulders and kissed them.

She was lying on her belly now.

I unclasped her bra and kneaded her soft skin.

"Edward, I know they'll think it's too soon for us to get married."

"Maybe they will believe that, baby, but it won't keep me from marrying you."

"I want to be your wife, too."

We were quiet for a few minutes.

"Is this relaxing you?"

"Mmmm, very much. Thank you."

"I never mind, sweet girl. You need this."

I checked the clock, and I knew they would be here soon.

I placed several kisses on her spine.

"Your parents will be here soon, baby."

"Okay. I need to find a new shirt anyway."

She snapped her bra closed and sat up.

"Do you think I need to change my clothes, baby?"

"No, I think you look perfect," she said.

She looked through her bag and took out a sweater that I loved on her.

I hugged her curves and it was navy blue.

"Wait, let me change into my dressy jeans. I don't like the way this sweater looks with this skirt."

I sat on the bed and watched her for a few minutes.

My adorable fiancee.

I wish she could see herself the way I see her.

Intelligent, sweet, beautiful, sexy, innocent.

Sometimes not so innocent, but that was only for me to know about behind closed doors.

"Is this okay?"

She came walking out of the bathroom, and I was breathless.

"Bella, I will be very happy when your parents leave so I can ravish you. Yes, you look amazing."

"Really?"

"You tell me."

I took her face in my hands and kissed her deeply, pouring my love for her into it.

My girl needed to be loved and cherished every moment of every day.

I was going to be the man that did that.

She rested her head on my chest once we stopped.

"I love you, Edward."

I inhaled her fragrance,

"Bella, I love you as well."

"Let me get the vegetables ready before they arrive."

I followed her downstairs into the kitchen.

I took out the pan for her and she took out the food.

Bella was much more relaxed.

She moved around the kitchen happily.

I took down a dish for her.

"Let me see if the chicken is ready, love."

She opened the oven and took it out.

It smelled heavenly and I couldn't wait to eat it.

"It's ready. I'm going to take it out."

The food was ready to go onto the table.

As we carried it to the table, we heard a knock on the door.

"Are you ready, baby?" I asked.

"As I'll ever be," she said.

I looked into her eyes.

"Please hold my hand, Edward."

We went to the door.

"Hi Mom, Hi Dad," she said as I opened the door.

"Bella, we've missed you,"

Her mom pulled her into a hug.

"Why are we coming here? This isn't the same place you lived," her father grumbled.

"Mom, Dad, I want you to meet my fia.., I mean my boyfriend, Edward Cullen."

Her dad looked me over and shook my hand.

"So you're her new boyfriend? You haven't been dating her long."

"No sir, but I love your daughter will all of my heart. She means the world to me."

I gave her a soft kiss on top of her head.

"Hmm.. " he said.

"This is a nice home, Edward," her mom began. "Why are we here and not at your place, Bella?"

"Are you living together?" her dad blurted that out and Bella snuggled closer to me.

"Why don't we sit down for dinner before we answer your questions."

I wanted to get them to the table before the Spanish Inquisition began.

I could feel Bella's hand trembling in mine.

I lifted it to my mouth to place a soft kiss on it.

I could feel her fathers eyes on me.

"Don't you think you're overdoing it with the kissing?"

"This is the way we always behave, dad."

"I don't like it," he said gruffly. "James was never like this, he at least knew how to show respect around us."

Bella was trying her best not to cry.

Her parents had begun eating.

"James was a horrible boyfriend."

"What was so horrible about him, Bella?"

Her dad was giving her a furious stare.

"We liked him," her mom responded.

"With all due respect, " I began, "Your daughter was abused by James on a regular basis. She

has anxiety attacks and nightmares to this day-"

"So you two are shacking up together? You were raised better than this, Bella."

She covered her face and then they saw her ring.

Her mom let out a gasp.

"What the hell are you two thinking?' There is no way you are getting married. Did he

brainwash you?"

I was positively angry that he would insinuate such an idea.

Bella was sobbing now, hiding her face in my shirt.

"Yes, we are getting married next weekend. Bella and I decided this together. There is nothing you can say that will stop us."

Her parents got up from their seats.

"Don't expect us at this shotgun wedding. Are you pregnant, Bella?"

White hot fury ran through my veins.

"No she's not pregnant, Mr. Swan, but we intend on having a family. If you keep up this behavior, you will never see any of your grandkids. Now I need you to leave."

I slammed the door behind them.

Now I could focus my attention on my girl.

I watched as Bella sobbed into her hands.

I saw her start to fall onto the floor, but I caught her in my arms.

"Baby, let me take care of you. I love you so much,"

My heart was breaking.

I lifted her into my arms to take her to bed.

The food could wait till the morning as far as I was concerned.

I took her into the bathroom and started the water.

"Bella, we're going to take a shower together. Let me get my clothes off then I will undress you."

She nodded her head.

Once we were naked, I took her hand and led her into the shower with me.

The water ran over both of us.

"Let me wash you, make you feel better," I said as I opened her shower gel.

Her sobs lessened as I talked to her.

"Y...you always take such good care of me. Do I do the same for y..you?" she asked.

"Sweet girl, you always make me feel loved and you do so much for me."

"I'm so...so sorry about...them."

"They should be apologizing to you."

"Do you still...want to marry me now?"

"Yes, so much that I would love to elope with you tonight."

"Your parents and Alice would hate that," she said.

"That does not matter to me. I want you as my wife."

Secretly, it was killing me to wait another week.

"We have everything planned already, your sister would be crushed if we eloped and I think your mom would be hurt too."

"You are right, baby. maybe we can pretend it's our wedding night when get into bed."

"Mmm... what were you thinking?"

"It starts right here, baby."

I captured her lips with mine in a heart rendering kiss.

Out tongues met in a slow dance.

I pulled back, noticing that the water had become cold

"Let's get out and go to bed," she said.

I wrapped a towel around her body after she got out.

"Can I brush your hair, baby?"

She looked at me with the sweetest smile.

"You're the first person to offer since my mom did when I was little."

I ran her brush through her hair.

She hummed as I did that.

"Does this relax you, too?"

"Yes, it feel wonderful."

She took in a deep breath.

"I did not get a chance to tell you this, but you were my hero tonight. Thank you, Edward."

"They needed to hear that we are in love and they can't stop us from getting married."

I wrapped my arms around her again,

"You know, I could bring up some supper for us to eat in bed."

"Mmm.. and dessert?" she asked.

"You bet, baby. Go relax in bed and I will be right back."

I ran downstairs and found the necessary tray.

There were vegetables left over and some chicken.

I made a large plate for us to share.

I cut a piece of the cake for us, and I took out the syrup, too.

Once I walked upstairs, I found my girl waiting for me, smiling.

"Hi," she said shyly.

"Hello beautiful. Ready to eat?"

I sat the tray down in the middle of the bed.

I joined her in the bed, sitting close to her.

"You're a great cook. I don't know if I have told you that."

"I love cooking for you, Edward."

Finally, I had a bite of her chicken, and it was delicious.

"Baby, this is great."

She was nibbling on some asparagus.

"I have not cooked for many people."

"I'm the lucky one, and our kids will love your cooking too."

She always smiled when we talked about our future children.

"Bella, since we are getting married. I want us to sell your house, please."

"Will you help me with it?"

"Of course, baby."

I never wanted us to live apart ever again.

"Can we move more of my things over here tomorrow?"

"That's fine. I love seeing your tings next to mine."

"You brought the syrup up here?"

"Yes. Did you not want any?"

She giggled and blushed.

"I want some, but I have other ideas for it."

"What ideas do you have?"

She stopped giggling to compose herself.

"I want you to lay me down put on the table and pour it over me."

My cock became very hard as I pictured this in my mind.

Bella on the table, naked, with strawberry syrup running over her breasts.

We would have to do that soon.

Very soon.

She took a bite of cake and brought it to my mouth.

It was very good.

I did the same for her, and she moaned.

"You're only suppose to make that noise when I'm making love to you, sweet girl."

She giggled some more.

Hearing that made me feel content.

'I think I like this more than chocolate cake now, Edward."

"Mmm.. Strawberry and Bella, my two favorite things."

She blushed again.

I lifted the fork back to her mouth.

"Last bite," I said as she opened her mouth.

Honestly, I was in a hurry to remove the dishes and make love to my girl.

She leaned back on the pillows, stretching her sexy body.

My mouth was watering.

I took the tray and moved it over to the dresser.

I turned to see my girl on her back, waiting for me.

"Would you like to pretend that tonight is our wedding night, baby?"

I moved closer to the bed.

She had the smile of an angel.

"Yes, but tell me you love me first."

I got on top of her body and took her in my arms.

"Isabella Marie, I will take you as my wife, to have and to hold, to love and to cherish for as

long as we both shall live."

Silent tears began falling down her cheeks as kissed her beautiful face.

"Edward Anthony, I will take you as my husband, to have and to hold, to love and to cherish

for as long as we both shall live."

Our lips crashed together in a deep, passionate kiss.

Her tongue explored my mouth greedily.

The essence of strawberries was on her lips.

I nibbled and sucked to my heart's content.

Our foreheads were touching when we broke for much needed air.

"In my heart, you're my wife already, sweet girl."

"As you are my husband in mine, love."

I kissed down her cheeks and her chin.

She gently ran her fingers through my hair.

"You'll always be my girl...my special, sweet girl."

She lovingly kissed my forehead before I moved over to her ears.

I licked her earlobe and lightly tickled her.

Bella's laughter was wonderful.

"St...stop...that tickles."

"I had to hear your giggles."

"You'll soon hear my moans."

That was another sound that I could not get enough of.

I slid my tongue done her neck, hungry for those moans she mentioned.

My hands roamed all over her body.

I loved the feeling of her nails over my arms.

I teased her hard nipples with my fingertips.

"Mmmm,"

I watched her lick her lips with her pink tongue.

I wanted to feel it all over me.

Now I was craving the taste of her nectar.

My girl was succulent in every way possible.

I placed soft kisses over her tits, lavishing her nipples with my tongue.

Spreading her legs apart, I let my fingers explore her wet folds.

"Oooohhhh, oooohhhh, Edward."

I got that reaction when I brushed over her clit.

"You're so wet and so warm, baby."

"You make me that way."

I continued licking my way down her stomach.

She watched me as I stopped to kiss her belly.

I couldn't wait to feel the slight swell of our baby growing inside her.

"Soon, very soon," I said before moving further down.

Part of me hoped tonight would be the night we conceived our child.

I placed my finger at her opening and looked into her eyes.

She was beautiful.

I slid one finger in carefully.

"Mmm.. more Edward," she said as she bucked against my finger.

I pushed another finger in, relishing in her tightness.

Needing to taste her, I lapped at her erect clit.

Her back arched as her pleasure grew.

My cock was getting harder, and I soon wanted her on top of me.

But first, I was going to make her come hard.

I pulled my fingers out and wrapped my hands around her legs, drawing her closer to me.

I buried my tongue in her pussy, and she began to come.

"Ed...Edward...mmmmmmmmm."

I could get drunk off her juices.

I kept my eyes on her as her orgasm washed over her.

So erotic.

So sexy.

All for my eyes alone.

I moved my body over hers as she relaxed.

She had a look of pure contentment on her face.

"Would you like to be on top, baby?"

"Nothing would give me more pleasure than to do that."

I helped her off the bed, pulling her up to my face, kissing her lips madly.

Our tongues were tangled together.

I kept her body flush against mine as we moved and I was on my back.

She laid over my body and began to grind against me.

"Take my cock and put it inside your pussy."

She wasted no time in my request, angling her body over me.

I filled her as she took me inside her body.

She had one hand on me and the other on her belly.

I closed my eyes briefly as I took in the sensation of her tight pussy.

Then I could see her clearly in my mind, pregnant, on top of me.

"What is that smile for, love?"

I looked directly into her chocolate brown eyes.

"This is one way I want us to make love when you're pregnant, beautiful."

A small gasp escaped her mouth.

"You were thinking about that Edward?"

She began to move over me.

"I think about that a lot, among other things."

"What else do you t..think of?" she asked as she rocked over me.

"Fucking you from behind.".

"Mmmm, more please."

She closed her eyes.

"I think about your sweet pussy over my face."

She began to move faster.

I loved seeing my cock coming in and out of her.

"Anything else, baby?" she asked.

"I want to put you on your hands and knees so you can suck my cock."

Her breathing had turned into heavy panting.

"Touch your clit for me baby."

She moved her hand down and stroked her sensitive nub.

"Think about me licking strawberry sauce off you."

"Mmmmmm, fuck...I'm..coming."

I felt her sweet walls clench around my cock.

She squirted on me.

I felt the familiar tightening in my balls.

"Fuck, baby, don't stop."

I shot streams of hot cum onto her walls, fucking her hard.

She could barely hold her body up , so I pulled her down on top of me.

I never wanted to pull out of her.

Her body was shivering.

With one of my feet, I pulled the blanket over us.

"I feel so weak, Edward. Hold me tight."

I kissed her face and she snuggled under my chin.

"I always hold you tightly, Bella, always."

Our lovemaking could be rather intense.

In the back of my mind, I contemplated if it might be too much on her.

Would we have to be extra careful when she was pregnant?

I knew the doctor told he she would have to watch her activity level.

I would never do anything that might hurt her or our unborn child.

"Edward?"

"Yes, sweet girl?"

"I can't wait for our first real night together as a married couple."

I laughed over her words.

"I will do anything and everything I can to make it special. This is nothing in comparison to what it will be like."

She looked up at me, her eyes shining.

"I love you so much."

She leaned up to kiss my mouth softly.

"I love you, too."

"It's getting late. I know I ask you this every night, but will you hold me while I sleep?"

As if I could ever decline that offer.

"Bella, I want to hold you every night. I never mind if you ask, but my answer will never change."

I tucked her back into the crook of my neck.

She always belonged there.

"Mmm... I love your scent," she said as she inhaled deeply.

"And the smell of your strawberry lotion is intoxicating."

I pressed my lips to her forehead.

"Time for you to be my sleeping beauty."

"Mmm, and you're my prince, Edward."

I was not so sure about that, but I would fight any creature for her.

I watched her open and close her eyes a few times before I was certain she was asleep.

I ran my fingertips over her face one more, caressing her skin.

"I love you, my soon to be wife. Just dream of us and our life together."

I thought I heard her murmur my name as I started to fall asleep.

I opened my eyes to make sure she was okay.

I was greeted with her sweet smile and her soft whisper of two words I could not wait to hear -'I do.'

Perhaps she was dreaming of our wedding.

I let that stay on mind as I began to fall asleep.
