Chapter 10

It had been a week since I last slept in this bed. A week since I'd seen his face, and a week since I'd felt him against me or inside me.

To most people, that probably wasn't a big deal. But for us, as soon as we discovered what we had together, we were almost inseparable. We spent every evening together. We had dinner, we discussed our days like any other couple, but we had a sexual chemistry that I couldn't even explain. I loved it, but I felt guilty, like I wasn't allowed to enjoy it or him now that Eddie knew and was so upset.

I stiffened as I felt his arm drape over my waist, pulling me back against him. I knew he could feel the tension rolling off of me, but he persisted, anyway. His fingers ghosted over my stomach and up between my breasts, never touching me more intimately than that.

"Did you sleep okay, sweetheart?" His breath tickled against my ear, causing me to shiver.

"Yeah," I sighed, letting myself relax against him. "Did you?"

"There's no way I couldn't sleep well with you beside me. I missed you."

I inhaled sharply as I felt his erection pressing against my back as his fingers followed the same trail they had earlier. "I need to feel you, Bella. Can I have you?"

"Edward, I—"

"If you tell me no, I'll back off. You know I will. I'd never pressure you, sweetheart."

I closed my eyes tightly. I knew he was true to his word; if I said no, he'd be off me in a second. The problem was, I wanted him as badly as he wanted me. "I feel guilty. I feel guilty for wanting you like I do," I blurted out.

He immediately began to slide his hand away from me. "Please don't stop touching me, though," I begged, and he pulled me impossibly closer to him.

"You're confusing me. Tell me what you need from me, Bella."

"I need to know that it's going to be okay. That we're going to be okay; that Eddie won't hate us forever."

"It is going to be okay, baby." His reassurance soothed me, his fingers once again stroking along my skin. "It's all going to be fine. It might take some time, but it'll get there. I love you. I'll alwayslove you."

"I love you, too. I need you, Edward."

"You have me. I'm right here. I've been here all week. I've just been waiting for you to be sure you still wanted this, wanted us." He maneuvered us so I was flat on my back as he hovered above me. I stared up at his face and my breath caught in my throat. I hadn't taken the time last night to really look at him. Even though we'd gotten a full night's sleep, there were dark purple circles beneath his eyes and his jaw was clenched from stress.

"Have you been sleeping, other than last night?" I lifted my hand, running my fingers along his cheek just beneath his eyes. He took a shuddering breath, his eyes closing.

"Not well." His voice was suddenly hoarse and I could almost hear the tears he was holding back.

I ran my fingers along his jaw, through the coarse hair of his beard. "I'm sorry."

"You have no need to be sorry. You obviously needed space, but you came back to me. We're going to figure this all out, together."

"We are." It was as if a light bulb had just gone off, and suddenly I really believed we were. It was the first optimistic feeling I'd had in what felt like weeks. I'd been stuck in a rut ever since dinner with my parents.

My newfound optimism didn't go unnoticed by Edward, either. He leaned down, pressing his lips against mine softly at first, but as I kissed him back, his became more insistent. I parted my lips, inviting him in, letting him have all of me. I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest as his tongue slid and tangled with mine. A week without him was too long.

He pulled back, his eyes locking with mine as he gripped the hem of my shirt, pulling it up and off. His gaze drifted from my face to my breasts and back up. "I swear you get more beautiful every time I see you."

He kissed a line down my chest, stopping momentarily to place a kiss on each nipple before his lips continued their descent down my body. He kissed the inside of each thigh before hooking his thumbs into the sides of my panties and slipping them from my body. One of his fingers stroked through my folds, spreading me open for him.

"Everywhere; you're beautiful everywhere. Right here, you're so pink and soft and just for me. God," he groaned, leaning in to press a kiss to my clit.

My hips bucked at the feeling, and Edward wrapped an arm around my waist to keep me steady. "Edward, please!"

"Shh, let me take care of you."

He leaned in once again, this time wrapping his lips around my clit, sucking while swirling his tongue against it. I moaned loudly, clenching my eyes shut. He slid two fingers inside me, pumping them in and out at a torturously slow pace. He would bring me right to the edge before pulling back, only to do it again. Over and over he brought me to the brink.

"Please, Edward, please,I need to—please!"

His eyes were heavy-lidded with lust as he looked up at me. "Come for me, Bella. Give me everything you've got. You taste so sweet, so perfect. I need you to come for me." He nipped at my clit before sucking it back between his lips, his fingers continuing to stroke at my walls.

With his words and his actions, he brought me to the edge, but this time he let me fall. I cried out, my back arching and my legs clamping around his head. I swore I saw stars. My chest heaved as he crawled back up my body, pressing his lips to mine so I could taste myself on him. It was more erotic than I'd imagined it would be.

"Thank you."

I kissed his jaw through his beard, loving the way it felt against my lips. "Shouldn't I be thanking you?"

"I think I needed that more than you. I... I needed to know that you're still mine, that you still want me."

"I do. I'm sorry I ever made you doubt that." I pressed my hips up, meeting his. I could feel him hard against my center.

"We should probably start getting ready." He rolled off me, but not before kissing the corner of my mouth.

"Don't you want to... I mean, you're still…"

He shook his head. "Thank you for letting me take care of you."

—GG—

The day passed more quickly than I would have liked. I was more hopeful now that everything would eventually work out, but still my stomach flipped at the thought of our impending dinner. I didn't know where to begin with Eddie. I didn't know how far he would even let us get.

As we sat in the car, Edward reached across the console, gripping my hand in his as we sped down the highway. "This is just the first step of many, Bella." It was as if he could read my mind and hear all of my doubts. "Even if we don't get much accomplished, it's a starting point."

I nodded, swallowing thickly. I was too nervous for words. I turned, staring out the window to watch the trees pass by. Before I realized it, we were pulling into the driveway of Edward's parents' house.

I said a silent prayer before we stepped out of the car and climbed the steps of their porch. I hoped that one day Eddie would find it in his heart to forgive me.

Here's to hoping he'll forgive her eventually, right? Let me know what you think!
