Read chapter. 6 - The feeling here or start with the preface
Amazing I thought to myself as I laid in Edward's arms. He played with a lock of my hair as I ran my fingertips across his chest. My eye lids started to feel heavy when I heard a beeping noise.
“Damn it.” I heard Edward say under his breath. I had forgotten that he set his alarm clock as a reminder that I needed to go home. During one of our out of breath breaks, we decided that I should not sleep over at his apartment. Lying to Alice is never a good thing - and telling her I was spending the night at Edward's would be out of the question.
“I don't want to go.” I whined. I started to kiss his neck, hoping that this night could somehow last forever.
Edward chuckled “I really don't want you to leave this bed but I would like my sister not to rip off your head.”
I laughed as I sat up. I pressed the bed sheet against my bare chest as I ran my fingers through my hair. Edward sighed then sat up next to me.
His lips kissed my shoulder “God, you're so beautiful.”
I didn't like feeling this way but when he said those kind of things, it felt like he was lying. I never thought of myself as beautiful so when anyone said that, I just thought they were trying to be nice. “You already got into my pants, you don't need try anymore.” I let out a nervous laugh.
Edward didn't say anything for a moment. “I will always think you're beautiful even if I wasn't allowed in your pants.” He jumped out of bed and started to dress.
I couldn't say anything or move. Would he lie to me? Did he really think I was beautiful? I had to stop to thinking about these things, they only made my head hurt.
“Bella, are you ok?” Edward asked.
I snapped out of my daze “Yeah.” I got up from the bed then pulled on my clothes. As soon as I pulled the zipper up on my jeans, Edward attacked my lips with his own. It caught me way off guard but before I could react, he pulled away.
“Sorry.” Edward whispered.
“Uh...Why are you saying 'sorry'?”
“I didn't mean to jump you like that but I couldn't help myself.”
I smiled. “You never have to say sorry for kissing me.” I gave him a quick kiss then walked out of the room.
I picked up my coat then my handbag. “So, Goodnight.”
“Not yet.” I looked at him with a confused look as he picked up his car keys up from the coffee table.
“Well, most of the time, people say 'goodnight' when they are parting but we, right now, are not.”
“But, I have to go home.”
“I'm taking you home. I'm going to drive my car while you drive your car. I want to make sure you get home safe.”
“You don't have to do that, Edward. I will be fine.” I told him. It was very sweet of him but I didn't want him to go out of his way.
“I want to, Bella. Let's go.”
Edward drove behind me the whole time which kept me smiling. We both walked into the apartment. There was a small lobby area and two elevators.
“Are you really going to walk me to the door?” I asked as I pressed the button that had an up arrow on it.
“I would love to but I really don't know if I could stop myself from pulling you into your bedroom.” He tucked a piece of my hair behind my ear then bent down and gently kissed me. He pulled away too fast. “Goodnight, Bella.”
The next day...
I was woken by a loud knocking on the front door. I pulled my blanket over my head, hoping whoever it was would go away or someone would answer the door. Then, the knocking started up again. I threw my blankets off then went to answer the door.
“Hey, little sister!” Emmett yelled as I opened the door.
“Emmett, it's too early to be talking that loud.”
He laughed as he walked into the apartment “Bella, it's two in the afternoon.”
Shit. My lack of sleep in the past two nights had caught up to me. “Oh.”
Emmett and I have been always close to each other. I always got that he was loud, funny, and he would do anything for the people he loves. And he will always get that I'm shy, caring, and very complicated. He knew how to make me laugh and I could always bring the softer side of him out which is a very difficult thing to do.
“I have some news.” Emmett told me.
“What's going on?”
“Well, I want you to meet someone. Her name is Rosalie.”
I looked at him, shocked. I knew Emmett very well and he didn't want me to meet his girlfriends unless he was serious about them. It was a rare thing when I met them.
“Who's Rosalie?” I already knew the answer but I wanted to hear it from his mouth.
He rolled his eyes then sat down on the sofa. I sat down next to him.
“She's my girlfriend.”
“Really?” I threw my arms around his neck then gave him a hug. “I'm so happy for you.”
Emmett laughed as he patted my back “Calm down, those kind of hugs could kill a person.”
I let go of him “So, when do I get to meet Rosalie?”
“This Saturday. She's opening a new nightclub. It's called Rumors.”
Emmett went on to tell me that the club is going to have a big opening but because I'm a guest of the owner, I get to skip all of the lines. Also that I can invite three people. Alice, Jasper, and Edward, of course. Emmett started to talk about how amazing Rosalie was and she was the perfect girl for him. She loved to repair and talk about cars which was always a big deal for him. Her plans are to keep Rumors open for a couple of years then open her own vintage car repair shop.
It was around three when Emmett needed to leave. He gave me a big bear hug then went on his way. As I made myself a bowl of cereal, I could hear my cell phone buzzing from my bedroom.
The text message was from Edward. How did you sleep? -E
Good but I wish you were sleeping next to me -B
I was wishing the same thing. I sleep so well when I have you in my arms. -E
I couldn't help but to smile. Maybe, we could break our only rule one of these days. -B
I would break any rules for that. -E
Same here. - B
“Are you spending the night?” Alice asked me.
“Of course.” I smiled. I never wanted to spend another night without her. “When I get done talking to Edward, I will come over.”
“I can't wait!” She told me with her always cheerful voice “I love you.”
“I love you, too.”
It was around ten when I made my way up to Edward's front door. I knocked on the door but he didn't answer.
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.
