Chapter 19: Edward
Emmett was growling in frustration when we pulled up to the house to see Rose's car in the driveway.
"They're home," he said scowling.
That is the last time I listen to you.
"I only told you what Rose and Alice were thinking. They were both thinking about the bringing Bella to that club in Seattle tonight. Did you see how they were dressed? They were definitely planning on going out dancing. They must have gone somewhere else." I explained.
"We went to every club in Seattle," he replied as I parked the car. He was fuming as he got out and stalked off toward the front door. Jasper and I followed. He threw the door open to see Rose sitting on the couch reading a magazine. She looked up at us slowly. Jasper quickly ran upstairs and I was just about to follow.
"Not so fast. Where have you been?" Rose asked.
"Where have you been?" He answered. Rose stood and walked over to Emmett whose arms were crossed over his chest.
She glanced in my direction. You over-protective jerks.
"I asked you first," she said as she stared up at Emmett.
"We went out." Emmett replied quickly.
Oh shit, Edward. She knows.
"Really? May I ask where you went?"
Emmett's thoughts were racing. He didn't know what to say. He knew we were in trouble. Rose pointed her finger and poked him in the chest.
"Rosie, you know I don't like you going out to clubs without me," he whined.
"And how did you know that we were going to a club?" She asked, stepping back and looking at me. "Shame on both of you. Don't you trust us? We would never have taken Bella to a club. We know she's not ready for that yet."
She stepped away from Emmett. "I told you that the girls and I were off limits tonight. No boys allowed!"
"Where were you?" He shouted at her.
"None of your goddamn business. The sad part about this is that us girls decided to do something nice for all of you ungrateful boys tonight," she said walking away and sitting back down on the couch.
"Rosalie, I heard you and Alice both thinking about taking Bella to a club, you were thinking about it all day. What did you expect me to do?"
"Perhaps a little trust would have been nice. I hope Bella doesn't cave in and give you your gift. You don't deserve it." She lifted herself from the couch started up the stairs; Emmett gave me a quick glance, and then followed her.
I sat myself on the couch and put my head in my hands. Those girls did this on purpose. Alice and Rose were evil. I can't believe that they would do this to me. I shuddered to think of what Bella must think of me. Rose was right; I did act like an over-protective jerk. I looked at Bella's bedroom door, I knew she was in there, I could smell her. Right after the girls had left, I had moved all of my things into Bella's room. After our short conversation this afternoon, I thought she wanted to share a bedroom with me. What was she doing in there? What did she think of me? As much as I wanted to enter the room, I was scared that she would be mad at me for trying to intrude on her night out. I got up from the couch, walked over to my piano, and started playing the first thing that came into my mind, our rain song. I played quietly and wished it were raining now. I wished that Bella not be angry with me, but I would not blame her if she was. I knew that Alice would never do anything to put Bella in a bad situation, and I knew that I never should have told Emmett. Even if they really had gone out to a club, Alice would have seen if anything was going to happen. My fingers stopped as Bella's scent filled the air. The door to our room opened slowly, and she stepped out and walked toward me. I kept looking down at the keys. I didn't want to see any hurt in her eyes.
I felt her hand on my shoulder.
"Would you please stand up?" she asked. I swallowed and stood up. I looked down at her, and her gaze was fixed on the piano.
"Could you please move over there?" She asked while pointing to the corner of the room, and I slowly walked over to that corner. She put her hands on the piano and turned it around, so that it was facing the front door.
"Now… if you would sit back down?" She asked.
What was she doing? What was she thinking? She seemed calm, but she wouldn't look me in the eyes. She was politely torturing me. I sat back down on the piano bench and waited. She moved the couches and love seat to the corners of the room, leaving a large empty space in the middle of the floor. She moved toward me, but still didn't look at me. She came up behind me and put her hands on my shoulders, massaging my shoulders and back and then she brought her lips to my ear.
"I want to show you something," she whispered. She wrapped her arms around my chest and squeezed. "I'm sorry about Alice and Rose playing that little trick on you. I know you were worried."
I was about to speak when she put her hand over my mouth.
"Ssshhh. I don't want you to say anything. I just want you to play for me. I want you to play something that you love and I want you to watch me." She removed her arms and after a moment, I started to play our rain song. At first, Bella stayed behind me, then after a few measures, she moved into the empty space in the living room and began to dance; her movements slow and perfect. She had her eyes closed and her arms waved up above her head and back down again, her fingers moving, mimicking rain drops falling from the sky, her head flipped around when I started playing faster. She was facing the door and swaying her hips back and forth to the music. It wasn't an erotic dance by any means, but I couldn't help but feel a slight arousal as she danced for me. I had dreamed of this moment, but this was better than any day dream. She moved across the floor with such grace, continuing to mesmerize me with her body until I could no longer concentrate on the music and I ended the song. She came up behind me again, taking one finger and running it down my spine. I could hear her breathing. She motioned for me to push over and then she put herself in my lap, as she had during our piano lesson. I kept my hands on the keys as she turned herself around to face me. Her legs wrapped around my waist and I finally was able to look into her eyes.
"I love our room," she whispered in my ear. I put my hands on her waist and looked her up and down.
"I hope you don't mind. I thought we both wanted it." I replied.
"It is perfect." She said before bringing her lips to mine. I nearly attacked her right then and there, pushing her up against the keys, and sending loud musical notes into the air. She grabbed my hair and pulled me away, looking at me and smiling.
"You really thought we went to a club?"
"I'm sorry. I should have trusted Rose and Alice. It's just… I feel so protective over you. When I told Emmett and he insisted that we go check up on you. I feel so stupid. Please forgive me." I stared at her with pleading eyes.
She let out a small laugh. "Do you want to know where we went?"
"You don't have to tell me. I trust you." It took everything I had to say that- of course I wanted to know where they had gone! It had been driving me mad all day.
"Alice arranged some private dance lessons for us; Hip Hop and Modern dance. It was incredible. I had so much fun. If you were worried, why didn't you call me?" She asked while kissing my neck.
I couldn't answer. She left me speechless. She pulled away from me and put her hands on my face.
"I have something else I want to show you," she said, sliding off me and standing up. She held out her hand for me and I took it as she led me to our room.
She closed the door behind me, looked up at me and said, "Our room."
The smile on her face couldn't have been any bigger. Still holding my hand, she walked over to the corner, sat me down in a chair, and grabbed the remote to the stereo. Music started, slow with a heavy bass line. She strutted toward me, each step sexy and deliberate. She stopped in front of me and started to move her hips from side to side and then circling them before she turned and bent over. I felt my breathing start to speed up. She turned, glanced at me, and took a few steps away from me. She spun around and brought herself to the floor and started to crawl to me. I was stunned. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined myself in this moment, with this exquisite women crawling to me. Her eyes were filled with lust and her body was calling me. She put her hands on my knees and I saw the bracelet; the silver cuff embellished with the Cullen crest. I took her wrist and brought it to my mouth, kissing the inside of her wrist softy before holding it next to mine. I closed my eyes as Bella began to move her body against me.
Open your eyes.
Her thoughts were just a whisper. I looked into a pair of golden eyes so alluring and warm. Every touch made me want to gasp for air. She never spoke a word out loud; her dreamy voice wandered into my mind and took over, telling me exactly what to do; how and where she wanted to be touched. She told me she wanted me, told me she loved me, and told me she loved feeling me inside of her body and mind. Never had such sensual words been spoken to me. We must have made love for hours and I just couldn't get enough of her. Her saying my name over and over sent me over the edge and I fell onto her. She let me lay there with my head on her chest for quite some time, and she played with my hair and sighed.
"Did you enjoy your lap dance?" She asked.
"Immensely." I answered, rolling over to my side and shaking my head.
"What?" She asked.
"I acted like such an idiot tonight, yet you still gave me a stellar lap dance." We laughed. "Rosalie was furious at us. I thought you were upset with me. I wasn't expecting this..."
She gave me a wicked grin. "Honestly, I found the whole situation funny and so did Alice, but Rose was pretty upset. I think it is safe to say that Emmett is not getting his lap dance tonight."
