Well here it is guys! The next chapter! I am astounded by the reviews I have received! You all are amazing and you are what keeps me going. Love y'all to bits and pieces!
I couldn't do this without the help of my amazing beta. She is a good friend and helps me with the road Bella and Edward are going down. She also lends a ear when I need to vent. She is amazing. Thank you Christie!
Again I own nothing but my own silly mind!
Some people would say they were nervous for their first date. I would say that is an understatement. I had no idea what to wear and I have been standing in front of my closet for who knows how long. I had finally gave up and called Alice to help me. She should be here in a few minutes.
Time passed in a blur when you had Alice dressing you. I had been primped to the max. My dressed in grey Stella McCartney tweed pants that fit me so well. A black tank top that went with my Rick Owens Boat cashmere sweater that fit skin tight but made my boobs look bigger. She matched my outfit with a pair of Tory Burch ballet flats that had a grey stripe over the toe. My hair was wavy that flowed down my back. My makeup was light and natural that made me feel like I was barely wearing any.
The doorbell rang and I took a deep breath. This was it.
I opened the door to see Edward in dark pants and a navy blue button up shirt that had the top two buttons undone. He looked sexy.
"You look amazing Bella."
I couldn't help the blush that spread across my cheeks. "Thank you Edward. You look very handsome."
"Are we ready to go?'
"Yeah let me just grab my clutch and we should be good."
On the way to the restaurant we made small talk that never once felt uncomfortable.
The hostess led us to a table that wasn't surrounded by anyone. And to myself it felt more intimate that way and helped us to just focus on each other. I couldn't help but look at Edward and think I was a lucky girl.
This little small diner was so nice and warm. "Good evening. My name is Amber and I will be your waitress tonight. Would you like to try a glass of our house wine?"
Edward looked at me and I nodded letting him know that was fine by me. I could use a glass every now and then. "Yes Amber that would be great. Two glasses please."
She left and returned a few minutes later. I ordered the stuffed chicken marsala while Edward ordered the sirloin.
"So Bella, this date seems to be going great so far. Is it safe yet for me to ask for a second?" He smirked at me while cutting up a piece of his steak.
I smiled and ducked my head looking at him under my eye lashes. "Yeah I would go ahead and say its safe to ask and I may just say yes."
He chuckled. "Well in that case. Ms. Swan, may I have the honor of having your company for a second date?"
I giggled. "Why yes you may Mr. Cullen. It would be my pleasure."
He smiled and reached his hand towards me across the table. I didn't hesitate to put my hand in his. And it felt as if the world righted itself the moment our skin touched.
We ate what we could of our diner and put the rest of it in to-go boxes.
The rest of the night was spend laughing and talking. It wasn't until the waitress told us it was time for them to start closing down that we realized we had been talking almost 3 hours. Edward took care of the bill and held his hand out to me and again I didn't think twice about putting my hand in his.
Arriving at my house, I wasn't ready for the night to end. But I knew that if I invited him in that we would take it farther than the first date needed to go.
Walking up to my door, Edward spoke. "I had a wonderful time Bella."
I looked up in to his eyes. "I did too. I look forward to our second date."
He smiled. "I really want to kiss you. You look so beautiful tonight that its almost painful."
I could feel my heart almost explode. I also had to tell myself not to jump him and make him that I was a first class whore. "Then do it Edward. I wouldn't have stopped you."
He gently cupped my face in his both large hands. As he lowered his face towards mine, I could smell his musky scent and it turned me on more than any other man had before.
As his lips touched mine I couldn't help the gasp that escaped. He was perfect and I wanted more. I put my hands on his arms to ground myself to him in some way.
"Bella…" He whispered.
I looked into his slightly darker eyes. "Kiss me like you really want to Edward. Don't hold back."
He sighed while pressing his forehead to mine. "If I do Bella I am afraid I won't be able to stop."
I smiled. "I know you can. Now do it." That was when my world turned upside down. I was pressed back into my front door and the, most passionate kiss was laid upon me.
We pulled apart breathing hard. Even though we wanted more we took a step apart trying to gain control over ourselves.
"Let me know when you get home, please." I whispered.
He looked up at me. "You don't have to worry about me. I'm honored that you do. Other than my family, no one has ever really cared."
I sighed. "I do Edward and I want to know."
He kissed me very gently. "Okay sweet girl. I will."
We bid each other a goodbye and I watched him drive away while standing in front of my window. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face while getting out of my clothes and into my pajamas.
My phone chirped a few minutes later.
I'm home sweet girl. Thank you for an amazing first date. You were amazing.-Edward
I giggled thinking he was too sweet for his own good.
Glad you made it home safe. I should be thanking you for tonight. It surpassed anything I have every experienced. -Bella
I hit send and finished getting ready for bed. Climbing into bed I checked my phone and noticed he text back while I was finishing up.
I hope you have sweet dreams and I hope I'm not sounding crazy when I say I can't wait to see you again.-Edward
I threw myself back onto my bed, squealing like Alice.
It's not crazy because I was thinking the same thing. Have good dreams yourself. I'll ttys. Goodnight handsome.-Bella
I could not express to him that my dreams would be filled with him, so therefore they would be good dreams. I just hoped that I wasn't letting my heart get away so quickly. I had a feeling that if I let this man, he could have me so wrapped up in him, I would never find myself again. And that, well, is scary.
