Read Chapter 1. The first time. or read the Preface
I knocked on his front door impatiently. I just had one of the worst blind dates ever and all I needed now was iced cold beer and his smiling face. It felt like forever but he finally opened the door.
Edward Cullen stood in all of his glory which made me weak in the knees. He always did this to me since I was sixteen and he had no idea my heart was his.
Edward started to smile his silly little crooked smile “I don't think I should let you in.” he teased.
“Come on, I will buy the pizza.”
For the past three years, Edward and I have “cheesy horror movies and pizza nights” every other Friday. We spent the whole night watching the kind of horror movies that most people laughed at and ordered pizzas. And for the first time, I canceled our night. His sister, my other best friend, Alice begged me to go on the blind date from hell. She told me that he was perfect and I would fall in love with him the second I saw him but the truth was she wanted me to get over my crush for her brother. There was no point of trying. There's no getting over Edward.
Edward opened the door wider for me to come in. “I'm only letting you in because I'm broke.”
As I walked into Edward's apartment, my cell phone started to buzz. It was a text message from Alice.
Is the date going good?
I messaged her back Nope. You know I'm going to kill you, right?
Keith is not that bad
Before I could send Alice another message, Edward yelled from the kitchen “Do you want cheese pizza?”
“Sure, that sounds good!”
I typed the message as fast as I could He was that bad, Al and for that you will pay. I threw my cell phone into my hand bag.
“The pizza will be here in twenty minutes” Edward told me as he walked out of the kitchen, holding two beers. He handed me one of the bottles. “So how was the date?”
I groaned which made him laugh. We both sat down on the sofa.
I didn't want to talk about the date. I would rather sit here and listen to Edward's stunning voice. You can't always get what you want.
“Ok,” I took in a deep breath before talking again “His name was Keith and when I first saw him, I thought I would have a good time. He had short black hair and he dressed very well but the second we got done with the introductions, he started to talk about himself. It wouldn't be so bad if he stopped at some point but he never did.”
Edward was trying not to laugh.
“He went on about his hair, face, body, and his feet. His feet! I'm not even joking, Edward. He went on for a long ass time about the waxing he does. It was so crazy and I fully don't understand how someone could talk about themselves for that long.” I took a long drink on my beer. “Oh, and he kept trying to get me to drink more wine. Every time I would push away the glass, he would refill it and push it back. Stupid pretty boy was trying to get me drunk.” I noticed that Edward's body was becoming tense and his hand that wasn't holding a beer was curled into a fist.
“What's wrong, Edward?” I asked.
We spent the next couple hours watching horror movies about flying monkeys, killer tomatoes, and a doll that couldn't be killed. I ate too much pizza so Edward gave me something for my stomach. It must have been around one am when we started to talk about dating.
“I don't know how many more bad dates I can go on.” I whined. I knew I could never have Edward but I was just hoping for second best. I think I will be hoping for a long time.
“I would take blind dates over what your brother is doing to me. He made it his mission to take me to every single bar in Seattle and find me the perfect girl.”
I would to start my own mission: Getting Emmett to stop that.
“You know, I don't want” I wasn't thinking when I started to talk. The words just flew out. “the whole relationship thing. I just want the sex.” My cheeks became bright red. Why the hell did I just say that? Oh, god! I put my hand over my face.
“Me, too.” Edward told me. I looked at him, shocked.
“Of course, you do. You're a guy.”
He laughed “Yeah, I'm a guy and I love sex. Proud of it, Bella. Women love sex, too so don't act like you guys don't.”
“That's true. Only if there's a way where I could have wild, crazy sex with a guy and not have a relationship holding you down.” I meant it as a joke but Edward took it as something else.
“There is, Bella. Friends with benefits. You know, a friendship with sex.”
My cheeks went from bright red to a crimson shade. Edward and I are friends – best friends that would perfect for a thing like that, right? I need to stop thinking that way. Him and I being fuck buddies. Yeah, that's funny.
“Would you ever do that sort of thing, Bella?” I was having trouble breathing. Even though he didn't know that saying those words were cruel to me, I wanted to hit him and tell him to stop.
“Sure” I choked out. I heard Edward take in a sharp breath. “I would have to trust that person” Like I trust him “The friend and I would have knew each other for a while.” We have known each other for seven years.
“Yeah, that makes sense.” He seemed out of breath.
“Would you?” I asked as I looked at him. There was so many feelings running through me and I could see the same thing in Edward's green eyes.
He just nodded. We stared each other for what could have been forever. I already knew I was thinking about it but was he?
Without any warning, Edward stood up, fast. His fingers ran through his reddish-brown hair. He was saying something under his breath but I couldn't hear him. I stood up, trying to hear what he was saying.
“...This can't be real...she could never want me.” He whispered.
Oh my...Oh my! Holy shit! He wanted me?! I wasn't thinking when I did it. I was weak and I didn't care.
Edward's back was turned away from me so I put my hand on his shoulder. “Edward.” I whispered.
As soon as he faced me, my lips attacked his. The taste of him was better then I could ever imagine. Every being in my body was jumping up and down for joy. I had to pull away because I started to feel light-headed.
“I'm sorry...I shouldn't have” I breathed out.
Edward placed his hands on my waist which had my heart racing. “Bella...”
“Can I take you to my bed?” His cheeks started to show a light shade of red.
Edward lifted me up so I could wrap my legs around his waist. Our lips didn't part as he walked us into his room. He gently set me on the floor.
“Are you sure?” He asked.
I didn't answer him, I just slipped off my top then I pulled off Edward's shirt. We started to rip off each other's clothes. I knew it was the first time we had seen each other like this but I didn't care and I could tell that Edward felt the same way.
I didn't think about the lines that we were crossing or about waking up in the morning. All I was thinking about Edward and how he touched my bare skin. His hands felt every single part of my body which was slowly driving me crazy.
“Please...please, Edward. I need you.” I started to moan as his fingers brushed up and down my inner thigh.
In one swift move, Edward carried me to his bed then laid me down.
Everytime he rocked into me, I cried out in pleasure. He moaned my name, causing me to thrust my body upwards even more. I truly never wanted him to stop; I will always need him to be this close to me.
