Read chapter. 9 - The selfish man here or start with the preface
There were no words that could explain how I felt being next to Bella, just hearing her breathing felt amazing.
It was around three in the morning when I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. Bella had her back against my chest as one of my arms was wrapped around her bare stomach. I wanted to wake her up but I stopped myself.
“Edward” Bella moaned. I had to look to see if she had woken up but she didn't. She was talking in her sleep.
I couldn't help but to kiss her neck as my fingers went up and down her side. She giggled by my side. She kept her eyes closed which made me kiss her even more.
Bella quietly moaned as my hand played with her breasts. “I'm sleeping.” she whispered like she was going to wake someone up.
“I know but I'm not.” I told her. “I'm very, very selfish.”
She rolled over so we could face each other “So, you're selfish?”
“Yes, very.” I kissed her as I pressed my body closer to her.
The sun started to come through Bella's bedroom window when I heard a familiar voice.
“Yes, Bella. My brother is in your bed.” It sounded like it was Alice but why would she be in Bella's room? I opened my eyes to see my sister, standing on the side of the bed. Her arms were crossed across her chest.
“What the fuck?” I rubbed my eyes as I sat up.
“Whoa, Edward! Move that sheet up! I do not want to see them.” Alice yelled. I looked down to see that the sheet was riding low on my waist. I pulled it up. I looked down at Bella who's cheeks were fire red and looked like she was about to go into shock.
“So, why don't you two lovers get dressed and come out to the living room so we can chat about all of this.” She waved her hand above us then walked out of the room.
“Oh, god. Oh, god. Oh, god.” Bella repeated herself as she pulled the bed sheet over her head.
I couldn't help but to laugh. We were already going to tell Alice today and she walks in on us, sleeping naked. My sister had perfect timing.
“Why the hell are you laughing?!” She snapped, still under the sheet.
“Because we don't have to tell her now.” I was laughing as I told her.
Bella threw the sheet down then hit me on my arm “It's not funny.” She sat up next to me.
“It kinda is.” I moved the lock of her hair that was covering her face from me. “It will be fine, Bella. She won't be mad. Well, maybe upset because we didn't tell her. You don't have to worry.”
She smiled up at me “How do you do that?”
I gave her a confused look “Do what?”
“Ever since I met you, you always make me feel better with just a couple of words. It's weird how you can always do that.”
“It's simple, Bella.” She tilted her head to one side “I dazzle you with my dazzling powers.” We both started to laugh at the same time. If I had dazzling powers, Bella would already be mine.
“So, what should we do? Just get dressed and hope Alice doesn't attack us?” Bella asked.
She ran her fingers through her hair then got off the bed. She let her naked form be seen which made me hiss under my breath. I would have to kill my sister for deciding to come back home at this time.
I got off the bed then tried to find my jeans. I found my shirt and my boxers but no jeans. “Bella, do you know where my-” I realized that my pants were out in the living room. Shit!
“Where are your what?”
“My jeans are in the living room.”
“Oh, crap. How are you going to get them?”
“I have no idea. I would like not to walk out there in my boxers.” I told her.
“Fine,” she put on a pair of sweats then a tank top. “I will be right back.” She walked out of the room, leaving the door wide open. She told Alice 'not yet' then picked up my jeans off the floor. “Here.” She handed them to me as she closed the door.
“Thank you, Bella.” I pulled them on “Are you ready?” I asked her.
I cupped her head with my hands then kissed her.
“You're welcome.” I knew that it wouldn’t be good for Alice to see Bella and I holding hands but I didn't care. I slipped my hand into hers. “Let's get this over with.”
We walked out to find Alice and Jasper sitting the sofa. Alice 's eyes went wide when she saw Bella's and my hands together. We sat down on the love seat. I couldn't help but to remember what Bella and I did on it.
“We were going to tell her, Jasper. You didn't have to gossip like a little girl.” I told him. He rolled his eyes at me.
“No reason to get all pissed at Jasper. He was trying to stop me from going in the room. So my new favorite love birds, why didn't you guys tell me?”
Bella gripped my hand, tighter. Was she that worried about how Alice would take it? Was she ashamed of what we had been doing and she felt like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar?
“We were going to tell you today.” I told her.
“Ok, how long has this being going?”
“A week.” Bella told her.
Before Alice could say anything more, I let her know something.
“ Alice, Before more questions fall out of your mouth, please take this into account, Bella and I are adults and if we want to have amazing,” I looked at Bella as I talked “out of this world sex, we are allowed to.” Her cheeks started to go bright red as she tried to hide a big smile.
“Of course, you guys are adults but it just sucks you guys didn't tell me sooner. So, what are you doing? Just sleeping with each for the fun of it?”
We explained about the friends with benefits deal and she was not freaking out. She kept giving Bella some sort of worried look and I had no idea why. Jasper needed to open Stop & Stare so he and Alice left. Before Alice walked out of the apartment, she gave Bella another worried look.
“So, that wasn't that bad.” Bella said as she walked into the living room. I was still sitting on the sofa. She sat down next to me then rested her head on my shoulder. “As soon as I'm not with you, she will attack me with a million more questions.”
I laughed “So, I don't have any plans this morning. Do you?”
She looked up at me with a big smile on her face “Nope, what should be do?” We looked at each other for minute then started to kiss but not soft or gentle, it was almost rough. I didn't care, though. We moved so her back was against the cushions as I was on top of her. Her hands wrapped around my waist as our tongues played with one another. Bella started to moan as my hand went up her tank top. She arched her back when my lips and tongue made the way down her neck to her chest.
While my fingers played with her bare breast and lips kissed her stomach, Bella's house phone started to ring. I didn't want to stop so I kept everything where it should be.
“E-Edward, I-I-I should a-answer that.” I gently pinched her nipple which made her cry out. “I l-let the answering machine get it.” I nodded against her stomach.
“Leave a message after the beep,” The answering machine told whoever was calling then there was one loud beep noise.
“Hello, Bella. This is Esme,” My head popped up. Who needed a cold shower when you could hear your mother's voice. “I need to speak to you so whenever you have chance, please call me back.” Then my mother hung up the phone.
“Why does your mom need to talk to me?” Bella asked.
“Fucking Eric York.” I said under my breath.
“Who's Eric York?”
“Some guy my mom wants you to date.”
Bella started to laugh “Your mom is trying get me a date. God, it's bad enough my mom and your sister try but now your mom? Maybe one day, they will find a winner.”
No! I don't want her to find a winner. Why couldn't I just grew a pair of balls and tell her how I felt? Why couldn't I be her winner?
“Edward, what's wrong?” Bella asked as she put her hands behind my neck.
“Nothing. Can I ask you something?”
I didn't want to ask her this. “What happens when you find someone else?”
“What about you? What happens when you found another girl?” She sounded pissed off. Why would she be?
“Fine, what if one of us find someone else? Do we just stop this?”
Bella looked away from me “I don't want to talk about this.” She pushed me off the sofa.
“Why not?” I asked.
She didn't say anything, just folded her arms across her chest. I got up from the sofa then took her head into my hands.
“Why not?” I asked, again.
“Because I don't want a relationship and you said you didn't one, too. So, why hell should we talk about it?” She snapped, as she moved her head out of my hands.
“I just wanted to know, that's it.”
“Ok, I need to take a shower.” She started to walk away and I had no idea why but I followed her. She stopped then looked at me “alone.” I stood there, shocked.
What the hell was going on? Why would me asking that make her upset? Did I miss something? I walked over to the bathroom door then knocked.
“Bella, are you ok? Did I do something wrong?” I couldn't hear any water running so I knew she could hear me.
“Yeah, I'm fine and you didn't say anything wrong.” She told me through the door.
“Are you sure? Just me come in and make you feel all better.” I smiled at the last part.
“Come on, did you really think I would fall for that? Your dazzling powers only work face to face not through a thick door. Silly, Edward.” I could hear her giggle which made me want her even more.
I walked away from the door then started to walk towards Bella's door. It must have been just a minute when I heard the bathroom door open. As I turned to look, she ran into my arms.
