I was going to wait until Friday… but I just couldn't do it…so here you go….
Investing in Love – Epilogue
You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...
You are the dancing queen…..
I'm in the elevator on my way up to Edwards office as I listen to 'Dancing Queen' play on the speakers. It's been six weeks since the incident with Riley and life is getting back to normal. Edward and I are going to a therapist regularly, finding it helpful to have someone to talk to about our past and future. One of the issues I brought up is about sex. I missed the kinky sex we used to have when we just had a 'business arrangement' and Edward is finding it hard to be that aggressive with me after everything that has happened. Luckily we have a good therapist and she agreed with me…he needs to get over it, and today is the day.
Once the elevator doors opens I'm greeted with the warmest smile from Bree. "Hello Miss. Swan it is so lovely to see you again honey."
"Thank you Bree. It's lovely to see you too." I love Edwards new secretary, she reminds me of my grandma Swan.
"Is it raining outside?" Bree looks at me quizzically as she takes in the trench coat I'm wearing.
"Um no…I just….it's just…..Is Edward busy?" I decide to just avoid the question all together because heaven help me I don't want to have to explain this to someone that reminds me of my grandma.
"No honey, you can go right in." I nod my head and head into Edward's office feeling embarrassed.
Edward is on the phone but smiles and waves me in when he sees me. "So who will be our primary market demographic?" He speaks into the phone as he keeps his eyes on me.
I make my way to the coat rack that is placed next to his leather sofa. I slowly untie and unbutton my trench coat. "What kind of numbers are we looking at?" I remove the trench coat from my body exposing the outfit I was hiding underneath.
I decided Alice was right when we were shopping a few months ago and I picked up the naughty little secretary's outfit she had picked out. I'm wearing black thigh highs with a pair of black heels that strap around my ankle. The grey skirt I am wearing barely covers my panty less bottom. The top is a sheer black blouse that ties in a knot under my breast leaving my midriff exposed.
"I'm sorry can you repeat that." Edward clears his throat as he sets up straighter in his chair. I feel I need to adjust one of the straps on my heel so I lift my right leg onto the couch and bed over to fix it. "Jesus christ….no sorry, not you, please continue." Edward starts to get flustered on the phone.
I turn around and slowly make my way over to him, enjoying the way he looks at my half naked body. He turns his chair towards me as I walk behind his desk. "I will want to see a write up on that." He licks his lips as I get on my knees in front of him and start unzipping his pants. "I don't care how long it takes. I won't go any further until all the figures are there." I pull his cock out and slowly lower my mouth onto him. I bob my head up and down as I take him in and out feeling him get hard with every passing graze of my tongue.
"Yes….I mean No! I don't want to drag this on any more than it has to, but….um….I don't want this to fail because….um…we weren't prepared." I'm sure he can feel me smiling around his cock as I revel in fact that I'm making him senseless with my ministrations. I run my tongue in circles around the tip of his cock as I raise my eyes to look up at him.
"Fuck me! I'm going to have to call you back." He hangs up the phone and growls in frustration. "Bella!" I stop what I am doing and give him my most innocent look. "That was an important phone call."
"I'm sorry, sir. I was being a naughty girl." I get up on my feet and lean up to whisper in his ear. "I think you should punish me." I pull my head back and look Edward in his eyes worried he won't play along.
"Do you know how unprofessional I sounded on the phone? Do you know how long it has taken me to get in touch with that person?" He's starting to make me feel bad and I don't like it. I bite my lip in shame and look away, unable to look him in the eyes anymore. "Do you know how fucking hot you look right now?" I snap my head back towards him and he has a wicked grin on his face. "Do you know how badly I want to redden that pretty little ass of yours?" Oh shit. I shift my legs feeling myself getting excited by his words. "Put your hands on my desk."
I do as he demands and put my hands on his desk bending over and pushing my ass out towards him. He stands from his chair and rubs my as before he gently moves his index finger and middle finger to my center capturing the moisture that has formed.
"You're so wet. You know what I'm going to do to you and it turns you on, you naughty little girl." I wiggle my ass at him wanting him to get on with it already. I'm about to cum just thinking about him spanking me.
I assumed he would just spank me with his hands, but he reaches for his belt and yanks it from his pants. He folds it over and grips it before he runs it along my ass allowing me to feel the cool leather. "You want me to spank you with this belt don't you?"
"Yes." I pant.
He pulls his hand back and brings the belt down to my ass causing me to scream in shock. The first second the belt hits me I feel nothing but pain, but it's the after effect that causes me to drip with excitement. Edward reels his hand back and lashes my ass again as I let out a throaty moan.
"Fuck you look so good bent over my desk." He throws his belt to the side and runs his hand down my ass gently giving me a few more spanks before he is sheathing himself inside of me causing us both to cum in record time.
After our little office escapade we both get ourselves freshened up and Edward gives me one of his shirts to wear home, just in case the trench coat mysteriously flies open I guess.
"That was fun." I say as I lean up to kiss him while I tie my trench coat tight.
"Yes it was."
"So we can do that again sometime?"
"I think that can be arranged." He smirks at my eagerness. "Are you all packed and ready to go?" he changes the subject.
"Yes, but I'm not sure I'm packing the right things since you won't tell me where we are going."
"It doesn't matter what you bring because I plan on having you naked most of the time." And with that he shoos me out of his office wanting to get some actual work done before we leave on our romantic trip.
"So your dad just bought your mom an island?"
"Yeah," he says and shrugs as if it's no big deal.
"Rich people." I shake my head in astonishment, I still don't understand them.
Edward and I are walking along the beach of Isle Esme, the island his dad bought for his mom on their anniversary. We've had the most romantic five days living in solitude on this island. We have managed to keep ourselves occupied by exploring, having sex, romantic walks, having sex, relaxing, having sex, hiking…oh and…having sex.
This evening is no exception. Edward had a romantic dinner set up on the porch of the beach house and we are now strolling hand in hand along the beach with our bare feet as the waves come crashing against our ankles and pulling the sand out from under us as the water recedes.
"It's so beautiful here." I look around mesmerized by the beauty of Mother Nature.
"Oh look, a shell." Edward bends down on one knee to pick it up out of the sand.
I stop and peer down at him as he turns on his knee and holds up half a shell in the palm of his hand for me to take. I reach down and pick it up gasping in surprise when I see a two carat platinum diamond ring lying in his palm where the shell had been. He picks up the ring with his other hand and holds it out to me.
"Edward..." I say in a whisper.
"Bella, I thought I knew what I wanted out of life, until I met you. I thought I could live a happy man with only my business to live for, until I met you. I thought I knew what love was, until I met you. Our worlds collided and I now know the only reason I was put on this earth was to love you. Will you help me complete my destiny? Will you marry me?"
"Yes Edward…yes I will marry you." I try to blink away the tears that blur my vision as I wait for him to slide the ring on my finger. Then I attack him, knocking him over onto the sand. He rolls me onto my back and we make out on the shore while the sun starts to slowly set in the background.
Our moment of bliss is interrupted when we hear the sounds of a helicopter coming from the distance. We break away from each other and look out at the horizon, and see a black helicopter coming towards us. Edward sits up in the sand with his arms propped up on his knees and lets out a long sigh. I sit up on my elbows and watch as the helicopter starts to descend on the beach several yards away from us. I look over at Edward in trepidation, but he doesn't seem shocked at all.
"Who is it?" I yell over the sound of the helicopter.
"Come on…" Edward stands up and offers me his hand, "I'll introduce you." I reach up and let Edward help me to my feet before we walk towards the helicopter.
Someone steps out of the chopper, but doesn't shut off the engine. As the figure gets closer, I notice it's a man who appears to be of the same superior quality as Edward. Holy shit! There are so many similarities...if not for Edward standing next to me, I would swear it was him walking up to us.
This man's hair is darker than Edward's and it appears to be a little longer as the wind from the blades blows it around. Dressed in a suit that was tailored perfectly for him, he walks with determination, running one hand through his wind strewn hair, and holding his tie in place with his other hand.
"Edward," the stunning man greets him as he holds his arm out to shake Edward's hand. "I apologize for disturbing you on your retreat, but I need your expertise at the mansion as soon as possible."
"Of course...we'll get packed and head back to the mainland. I will call ahead and have the jet fueled and ready to go." Edwards demeanor is business like I know whatever this man is wanting must be important if Edward is willing to cut our getaway short.
"Ahem," I clear my throat, wanting to be introduced this stranger who has interrupted our romantic escape.
"You must be the infamous Bella." The alluring stranger takes my left hand and places a kiss on my knuckle. Eyeing my ring as he lowers my hand, I see a smirk forming at the corner of his mouth. "I have heard so much about you."
"I wish I could say the same." I give Edward as sideways glance waiting for him to properly introduce us.
"I'm sorry…yes, allow me to introduce you to my fiancée, Bella Swan." Edward beams at his use of the word fiancée as he possessively wraps his arm around my waist.
"Good for you, Edward." The man smiles and pats Edward on the shoulder in congratulations.
Edward smiles down at me. "Bella, this is Seth's cousin from Seattle. He was instrumental in finding Riley for us and it appears he is needing my services now. It seems our adventure isn't over yet. Bella Swan, I would like to introduce to you to …Mr. Christian Grey."
To be continued…
This is not the last you will hear from Edward and Bella but it is not Edward and Bella's story I will be telling. Here is a little sneak peak at an excerpt from my work in progress….
Embracing the Grey Areas
"I thought I told you not to come down this way."
I jump turning to see Christian incased in the shadowy darkness of his sex room. It is hard to see his facial expression in the darkness of the room, but I can tell by the tone of his voice that he is less than happy.
"Christian, I….I" I have no clue what I should say.
"You disobeyed my orders Anna." He walks closer to me and I instinctively take a step back as I become flush against the armoire of hidden sex treasures. "How much did you see?"
"Nothing….I didn't see anything." I lie and he knows it. "I'm sorry."
"Damn it Anna." He gets closer to me as I side step to get myself out from between the armoire and him. "I told you not to apologize, I told you not to go down the west hall. You seem to have a problem following my orders."
"I just needed to know." I explain as I continue to back step as he stalks towards me.
"I would have told you" his voice is low and impending "when the time was right." I stop when the back of my legs hit the side of the bed. "I wanted to ease you into all of this. I didn't want you to be frightened by who I am."
"I'm not scared of you." I say with a false sense of determination; the mere fact I was not convincing myself with that statement leads me to believe I was not convincing him.
"Well you should be." I'm trapped and out of room which only seems to encourage him as he continues to move closer causing me to be seated on the edge of the bed as he looms over me. "I think I have waited long enough and you need to be taught a little lesson."
"What are you going to do?" I ask with trepidation in my voice.
"I'm going to fuck you Anna." …..
I cannot tell you how wonderful this experience has been for me. Thank you to everyone who has been with me from the beginning. You have been my motivation and inspiration to continue. I would like to especially thank chiefexecutiveeditor who was the one who has encouraged me to publish this story and who is still continuing to listen to all my new ideas and keeping me going.
