Chapter preview: I adjusted myself in his grip, raising my left arm so I could start softly rubbing his back. “Edward, I… what do you mean?” I asked him slowly.
He paused for a moment, taking in a sharp breath before shaking his head against my neck. “Nothing, I just… I don’t want you to leave,” he eventually mumbled, moving his arms so they were clutching my waist.
I sighed, and slowly dropped my hands, still confused at his behaviour, was that all just a ruse to get me to stay? “But why? I mean I’m not…”
“You’re amazing…” He finished the sentence for me, squeezing me gently, before leaning away slightly to cup my face delicately in his hands. “Come on Bella, You must feel this, this connection… Please tell me that you feel it.” He whispered as he gently ran his fingers down my cheeks, his green eyes wide and pleading.
