Read chapter. 4 - The dinner date here or start with the preface
As I prepared myself a cup of coffee, I could still taste Bella on my lips. I wish she could have stayed and that my sister didn't have to be a pain in my ass. Or maybe, we should have remembered to called her last night so she would not worry. By the time I finished my coffee, the house phone started to ring.
“Hello,” I couldn't help but to hope it was Bella.
“Hey, Edward,” It was Jasper to my dismay. We had been good friends since we were in college and now, we own a small music store together – Stop & Stare Music.
“Hey, What's up?”
“I was wondering if you could open the shop, today. I can close but um...I'm really tried because I didn't get enough sleep last night.” I forgot that I was supposed to close tonight and my plans with Bella would be interrupted.
“That would be perfect.”
“Are you sure?” He asked.
I had about an hour until the store needed to be open so I finished getting ready then headed out. Before I started my car, I texted Bella.
I can't wait for tonight – E
With the “open” sign on, I started to work on putting out some new CDs. Time flew by which I was happy about. While I was working on some paperwork, my cell phone made a beeping noise, which told me I had a text message. I felt like I was a six year-old who just got told he could have ice cream when I saw that it was from Bella.
You have no idea -B
Even though I was excited about tonight, I still felt nervous and worried. Because we too busy this morning, we never got to talk about the “friends with benefits” deal. Of course, I would always want something more with Bella but if all I could get from her was sex, I will take it. It must have been around one when Emmett came over to the store with a pretty woman that had jet-black hair.
“Hey Edward” Emmett's booming voice filled the whole store. “This is Tiffany.”
“Hello, Emmett and Tiffany. What can I do for you guys?” I didn't like where this was going.
Tiffany whispered something in Emmett's ear then walked over to the clearance CDs.
“Tiffany's hot, isn't she?” He whispered to me. Great! Yet another girl I had to turn down. I knew Emmett meant well but this was getting on my last nerve. I wish I could just tell him that I didn't anyone but Bella.
Emmett rolled his eyes “Come on, dude. Is little Eddie not working?” he points below my belt.
I had to stop myself from saying something stupid like “Ask Bella.” “He's more than fine” I replied.
“Good, I was getting worried.”
I rolled my eyes.
“So,” Emmett still whispering which was odd because he was a very loud person. “Why don't you take Tiffany out tonight and maybe have some fun” He winked at the last word.
Dinner with Bella or a date with a complete stranger? Yeah, this was going to be easy “No, thank you.”
Emmett threw his hands up in the air then walked to Tiffany. I don't know what happened but he told her something then she stormed out my store.
“What the hell did you tell her?”
“Just that you're gay.”
“You're a dumbass.” I told him.
“Yeah and you're a prude.”
Around four o'clock, Jasper came into the store to take over. With a good-bye to him, I was on my way to the grocery store to pick up some things for dinner. The only thing I could make was pasta so that's what I planned to do.
I was about to leave to pick up Bella when there was a knock on my front door. Even though I was shocked, I couldn't help to smile.
“I thought I was supposed to pick you up.”
Bella looked like she was in a daze then she snapped out of it “Uh...Yeah but I thought it would be better if I came here then you pick me up. Alice is one for asking questions so I'm pretty sure she would have a million if she saw you picking me up.”
“Very well.” I opened the door wider so she could walk in. I noticed she was wearing a coat that went past her knees. “Can I take your coat for you?”
“Sure.” She smiled. When I slipped off her coat, I couldn't believe my eyes. Bella was wearing a skin tight, blue dress that hung a little bit before her knees. She looked incredible, well more then she already did. I wanted so badly to take her to my bed and make her moan my name but I knew that we needed to talk.
“Wow, that smells good.” Bella told me as she walked into the kitchen. “What's cooking-” She stopped herself then started to giggle. “I bet dinner is going to be amazing.”
“Fingers crossed.” I couldn't stop myself when I gently brushed the back of my hand down her arm “You look amazing.”
She took in a quick breath “You look amazing, too.”
I stared at her lips and then at her eyes. I didn't think she was going to do it but she pulled my head closer to hers then kissed me, wildly. I wrapped my arm around her waist and pulled her closer. We both moaned into each other's mouths. I could feel Bella's fingers tugging at my belt, which made me pull away.
We were both out of breath.
“Dinner and talking before that.”
“Yeah. Dinner. Talking. Perfect.”
I ran my fingers through my hair then went back to finishing dinner. Bella put her back against the fridge and watched me. Every time I saw her bite her lip, I would get excited.
“Do you want a glass of wine?” I asked.
All Bella did was nod.
I poured the dark red wine into two glasses then handed her one of them.
“You're welcome, beautiful.” As soon as I said the last word, Bella's cheeks went bright red.
“Edward?” She asked.
“I-I have been thinking about you all day and um...” Bella put her head down before talking again. “All I want right now is to feel you in me.”
Oh god, I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. I walked over to her then put her head between my hands but she still didn't look up. “Bella, please look at me.”
With her eyes still looking at her shoes, she started to talk about the wine “This is really good. What kind is it? It's good, very good.”
I bent down my head so lips were right next to her ear “You have no idea how much I want to be in you right now.”
“Edward.” She moaned my name. “Let's talk very fast so you can take me to your bed.”
“Ok.” I moved away from her then took a couple of steps away from her. “We both want sex and not the whole relationship thing, right?”
I wish I could just tell her I loved her and I wanted more than sex with her but what if she told me 'I love you as a friend, not anything more'. I really don't know if I'm that strong. “Friends with benefits, right?”
She nodded “Sounds perfect. Should we tell anyone or keep it a secret?”
I didn't know how our love ones would take it “Secret, for now.”
“You and I are best friends with benefits and we are not going to say anything – for now.”
“Yes, sounds amazing.”
We stared at each other. Would it be bad if I just jumped her right now or should I wait until we talk more? No more talking, please!
“Edward, is the oven on or the stove? You know, fire hazards.”
I walked over to the oven then turned it off. I didn't even let any words come out of my mouth or hers. I pulled her into my arms then kissed her. Bellas arms wrapped around my neck as she pressed her body against mine as I let my hands roam her back.
Bella pulled away from my lips “I can't believe we are doing this.”
“Can we just forget that that we might be making a big mistake and just make each other moan all night long?”
“Yes, yes, yes.” I carried her body to my bedroom, closing the door behind us.
“Edward, put me down, please?” I was confused but I did as she asked.
Bella didn't say anything as she unbuttoned my shirt then pulled it off. Her fingers ran across my chest then they made their way to my belt. As soon as my pants were off, she started to pull off her dress. She was wearing a matching pair of powder blue bra and underwear. My penis was very hard, aching for her. I tried to kiss her but she moved her head.
Bella took my hands then walked me over to the bed. She gently pushed me on it then climbed onto my lap. I was shocked at first because I never thought she would take so much power but I was more than ok with it. My fingers moved up and down her outer thighs. She looked down at me with a big smile on her face.
“Do you want me, Edward?”
“More then you will ever know.”
“Then show me.” She whispered.
I flipped Bella onto her back then ripped off my boxers then her underwear. I let myself into her entrance as she gripped her hands on my shoulders. She was already wet for me, which made me smile. “You're so perfect.” I told her. She kept her eyes locked onto mine.
Bella moved her body up so our chests were pressed together. “Oh, god!” She cried out as I moved my body faster. I started to kiss her neck, which made her moan even more.
“Bella! Bella!” I repeated her name over and over. I could feel myself about to hit my peak and I could see that she was about to, too.
“I'm almost there, Edward.” She moaned into my ear.
When we got our climaxes, we both fell onto the bed.
“Oh god, that was amazing.” Bella told me, trying to catch her breath.
“Better than amazing.”
“Yes,” She rolled on top of me then sat up. “Are you ready?”
I looked up at Bella. I couldn't believe how lucky I truly was. Sex with an amazing, perfect, beautiful woman. I'm the luckiest man in the world.
I knew Edward was home because his car was in front. Was he already in bed? No way, it was too early. I bent down then got the spare key that was hidden under the doormat. I opened the door to see that almost all of the lights were on but no one was in the kitchen or the living room.
I was about to call out to Edward when I heard a noise from his room. I had a thought about what it could be but I knew for a fact that he wasn't dating anyone and his not the kind of guy who would have a one-night stand.
I could hear someone's heavy breathing from the other side of Edward's door. Oh my god!
“Bella!” Edward moaned, loudly.
My mouth dropped. Bella Swan? Did I hear him wrong? Before I could think about it anymore, there was another moan.
“Edward!” That was Bella's voice.
I almost ran to the front door. I couldn't believe it. Edward and Bella having sex? Oh, fuck! This can't be good.
