Whaddya at? I know it's been a while and I'm sorry about that, RL got in the way. Started a new job and it's great but kicks my ass so I haven't been able to get the mojo to write this. Writers block was also a factor.
Okay so lemons ahead and sadly I have edited this on my own, can't find a beta and a gf didn't have a chance to look it over for me. I've done it all myself so I apologize for any errors.
Alright shuttin up now, read ahead. OH and SM owns this…blah blah.
Chapter 17-You've got to be kidding me
I stood in front of the mirror of the bathroom, brushing my teeth and just thinking about how this weekend was the best ever. Our family would be home this evening meaning an end to the weekend and back to real life tomorrow.
I had been so spoiled this weekend, to just relax and have Edward all to myself, I would be sad to see it end. But I wasn't sad about my little man being the reason behind it ending. Do I wish things had been different? Do I wish he was Edward's? Yes and Yes but I would never regret having him, I thank god every day for my baby and I will thank him every day for my family and any future children that should come along.
I was brushing my hair getting ready to go out for the day, we hadn't left the house or the bedroom for that matter and I was starting to think I had created a sex crazed fiend, but to be honest I was just as bad. It took everything in me to not go back to the bedroom and just pounce on Edward, especially how he look when I left the room; still in bed, completely naked and one hand resting under his head as he watched me walk naked to the bathroom. I could feel him ogle me and I had to chuckle at him.
"Bella, you better go do what you plan to do or else I'm going to keep us here all day" he had growled and I squeaked a giggle running to the bathroom.
"Mmmm…and what exactly has that smile on your face my love?"
"You darling, always and our son is coming home today so it's a good day"
"You're right darling. I'm going to be honest love, I miss him badly"
I was slightly shocked, I shouldn't have been, I mean I knew he loved EJ but to hear him say this, well it just solidified their bond, our bond. I knew right then and there that any children we had would be loved more than anything else on the planet.
"Come love, how about we get out of here for a while"
I nodded and then got ready to go out. We hadn't been to too many places as just the two of us, well unless you count school and I don't count that.
We didn't want to go too far just in case the family came home early so Seattle was out of the way and there wasn't anything to do in Forks, Edward had mentioned bringing me to one of his favorite spots but wanted EJ there as well so we opted for Port Angeles instead.
I was a bit hesitant to go seeing as the last time we were there skanks 1 and 2 harassed me and EJ. Well I was a whole new Bella now and I wasn't about to run from them again if they crossed me. I took one last look around to make sure I had everything and left to meet Edward downstairs.
"You're awfully quiet love" Edward stated as he held my hand to his mouth to place a sweet kiss upon my knuckles and making sure to kiss the ring he placed upon my finger.
"Nothing sweetheart, just happy to be with you and even happier to see our son this evening. I may be a little unhappy about having to leave you though. You've kinda spoiled me this weekend you know?" I chuckled at him.
"Mmmm, yes I'm happy about all those things as well love. As for having to leave you, well we both know I'll be slipping through your window as soon as your dad goes to bed. Maybe he's working tonight and he will ask me to stay over. Personally love he doesn't really care anymore. He knows I love you and EJ and in his mind he doesn't care as long as you're happy"
"Hmm… well I may just have to steal you from your family and have you move in with me" I said poking him in the stomach.
"Oh Bella, I promise as soon as this school thing is done, we'll get married and I'll get us a wonderful house" he said while kissing my hand again.
I nodded and we spent the rest of the drive in silence as I gazed out the window, visions of a house with EJ running around a big yard and Edward with arms around me and a small bundle in my arms.
Finally we pulled to the Port Angeles Mall. It was small and only held a dozen stores, but it did have the basics and a wonderful bookstore. Not a Barnes and Noble or Chapters but one of those quaint little Mom and Pop stores that you know is as old as Buckley's goat but still holds the classics and even the newer ones and hasn't shut down because the couple is just too stubborn or love it too much.
We made our way inside, Edward's hand in mine and I couldn't help sigh again in contentment. I loved being a couple with him, I always did but it just hit me that there would be no leaving this time. The last couple of years was hard on me, with the attack, finding out I was pregnant and then finding the love of my life only to have him part time. Well not anymore and I was going to enjoy every minute of it.
I was in the bookstore flipping through pages of an old copy of Interview with a Vampire, reading The Wolf Gift had renewed my interest in her and I was hoping to find some of them while I was out. I was completely engrossed in the book completely forgetting the way the words just brought you to another time and place and how poor Louie felt. Edward had gone to the car to put away some of the bags, Alice had seen us go to the mall and texted Edward with a hefty list of things she said she needed. Wanted was more like it but my sweet man just shook his head at the text and led me to the stores to get her things promising we'd get some things after. I didn't care if we bought anything; I just wanted to be with him.
I heard them before I saw them, skanks 1 and 2 and Mike Newton; well I smelt him. They were the banes of my existence and I was really hoping that they wouldn't see me, why the hell were they here? Did they live here at this freaking mall? Jesus Christ!
I kept flipping through the pages in hopes that it would make me invisible and praying to god that they would just go away.
I was too happy to put up with this bullshit today and Edward was damn well fed up with Mike and may just kill him.
"Well, Well, Well, look who it is, the beautiful Bella Swan what's a sexy thing like you doing in a book store?"
I rolled my eyes, I'm sure he was trying to be flirtatious but it was just pissing me off. Just because I might be slightly pretty didn't mean I couldn't read. Fucker!
"What does it look like? I'm reading" I was so fed up with them, all of them really and I was aching for the day when I would be finished and just leave here with Edward. I'd miss my dad but I needed Edward more.
The skanks were looking around, I'm sure to make sure my sisters weren't around less they get their asses kicked.
"What are you doing here?" I asked
"Oh you know, just seeing what qualifies as reading now a days not that we need it. When you have these looks, you can get anywhere in life. Right ladies?" god he was a prick. And of course the two bimbo twins just nodded like the sheep they were. Stupid! What the hell was with the hostility I was feeling? I felt enraged and needing something but wasn't sure what. They probably didn't even know how to read.
"Ladies, why don't ya take your fine asses to the food court and I'll meet ya there. I did promise those shakes so shake it for me will ya" Mike winked and I threw up in my mouth a little.
Both Lauren and Jessica giggled like idiots and left but not before sending a murderous glance my way.
"So Bella, how about you join us huh? Or I could get rid of them and me and your very fine ass could get to know each other better" he was playing with a strand of my hair and his hand was making its way to my ass. Clearly the threats we had made in the past didn't mean anything anymore. Idiot!
"Mike I'm with Edward so just leave me the hell alone" I was trying to bat his hand away without breaking it, I could feel that left over venom rising in my fingertips and I knew one flick and he would have a broken arm.
"Oh come on Bella, I don't see Cullen here anywhere. If you were my girl I would never let you out of the house let alone my bed. A sweet ass like that would be all for me" I was about to hit the bastard but he was pulled from me and shoved up against the wall with a very pissed off vampire looming over him.
"NEWTON, I THOUGHT I MADE MYSELF CLEAR, SHE IS MINE! NO ONE TOUCHES HER BUT ME. IF I EVER SEE YOU TOUCH HER AGAIN I WILL KILL YOU" Edward yelled and I'm sure scared the rest of the patrons in the store.
"What is the meaning of this?" a little old lady yelled as she came to investigate the disturbance I'm sure.
"Francis Michael Newton, just what on god's green earth are you doing? Young man I saw the whole thing on my camera, I told you many times not to bother the customers in my store. So help me boy I'll take you over my knee, wait till I tell your mother" the little old lady screamed and I held back a giggle.
"I'm sorry grandma, it was all a big misunderstanding" Mike paled and stuttered.
"Hmm, sure it was, the way that young man there has a hold of your shirt says otherwise. Let em go son, he may be a few bricks shy of a wall but he's still my grandson" she sighed and I watched as Edwards shoved him towards the woman hard causing him to trip up.
She started to pick at his jacket and muttered things about keeping his pants up; she even hauled his jeans up and tucked in his shirt. Then she licked her thumb and wiped off the non-existent smudge off his cheek.
Mike was trying to bat her hands away but she smacked him in the back of the head.
"Grandma, come one, I'm a grown man. Please, nana, I'm sorry" Mike was pleading with her.
I was holding it in I really was but when I noticed the audience gathered around and some with their phones out taping the whole thing, I lost it. I laughed so hard I thought I would pass out. The kind little old lady pulled Mike away by his ear and then apologized to us muttering things under her breath.
I felt so bad for the woman that I bought every book by Ann Rice just to make up for the fight and then we left and laughed even harder when we saw the little old lady hitting Mike out by his car with a broom.
"Come on love, we should head back, the family will be back soon" Edward sighed.
I could tell he was upset about what happened.
"Edward stop, okay, Mike is a jerk, but it looks as if he's getting what's coming to him now, his grandmother will make sure of that, wouldn't want to piss her off too much" I laughed and he chuckled shaking his head. He gave me a quick peck and then we left to drive home.
To say I was excited to see my son would be understatement. He came barreling through the trees on the heels of Emmett and then launched himself across the yard into my arms; wrapping his arms around me so tight I thought I would pass out but I really didn't care.
EJ kissed my cheek and then flew to Edward screaming "DADDY!" Edward caught him and starting spinning him around telling him how much he missed him while I received hugs from my family. My sisters had smug looks on their faces and I damn well knew that Alice had seen something and told them. I shook my head and told them there wasn't a chance I was telling what went on here the weekend.
"Ah come on Bells, we know you and the old man here finally fu…" Emmett started
"EMMETT MCCARTY CULLEN, YOU FINISH THAT SENTENCE IN FRONT OF MY NEPHEW AND SO HELP ME" Rose screamed.
Emmett apologised but winked at us and I knew Edward would be in for it later especially once I saw Jasper rubbing his hands together like a villain. I couldn't help it, I laughed so hard tears were in my eyes.
"Oh you laugh now sister dear, but don't worry once the little man goes down for the night you're ours" Alice giggled and I stopped laughing scheming a way to keep EJ up but I knew that was pointless, he was dropping as it was in his dad's arms after running all afternoon and the fresh air, he was as good as gone.
"Okay Bella, so tell us, what was it like?" Rose started as Alice bounced on her bed.
We had dinner about an hour ago and EJ was asleep at the table so Edward had taken him to his room to sleep. We were set to go back to my dad's in a bit but as soon as EJ was taken upstairs Alice threw me on her tiny shoulders and ran to her room with Rose hot her heels.
"I have no idea what you're talking about" I lied but the blush surely gave it away.
"Cut the crap Bella we damn well know that you and my brother did the nasty this weekend" Alice said
"There was nothing nasty about it" I snapped and then groaned at the smug look on her face. That conniving little pixie knew exactly how to get info outta me. I was going to have to kill her.
"Nice Alice" Rose cheered and I flipped them both off but couldn't help but laugh
"Okay fine, we did, and I'll I'm giving you is that it was wonderful and the best experience of my life" I stated folding my arms across my chest daring them to keep going.
They both huffed at me and then left but not before hugging me as they went.
"Alright Bells, we'll leave ya alone, but we're so done with this, happy for ya though, see ya tomorrow" Alice gushed and squeezed me one more time.
Edward made his way smiling and holding a still sleeping EJ. He was already in his PJs and I took that as my signal that it was time to leave.
"I take it you heard all that?"
"Yes, and it was the best experience of my life as well love" Edward whispered and placed a gentle kiss on my lips and then we put EJ in the car seat and with one last hug for the rest of my family we left.
Charlie was home when we got there but he was still in his uniform.
"Hey Bells, how was the trip?"
"Awesome, it was great to see Kate and Rin" I lied
"I see you wore my grandson out"
"You should see Carlisle, he's worse" Edward chuckled as we tried to keep our voices down.
It occurred to me that Charlie didn't get to spend a lot of time with EJ so I decided to see how my dad felt about taking EJ fishing sometime.
"Well Bells, I'm glad to see you both home safe and sound and I hate to leave but there was some sort of animal attack a few towns over and I have to go help out. Edward would you…I mean…okay do I really have to ask?" My dad muttered and I watched as Edward shook his head with a huge smile on his face.
"No sir, I'll just call my parents and let them know. And for the record sir, you never have to ask, I'll never leave Bella and my son alone" Edward told him
"Thanks son, oh and Edward, you can cut the Sir out, you're engaged to my daughter, you can call me Charlie okay"
With that, my dad nodded and left. Edward kissed my cheek and said he was bringing EJ up to bed while I took a shower.
I was in the shower letting the steam relax all my muscles; I had to admit I was sore, but in the most delicious of ways. I was so not complaining about that.
I was reaching for the body wash when another hand shot out and wrapped around my arm. I gasped when I saw Edward standing there with dark eyes watching me. He was standing there looking damn tempting in all his naked glory. He gave me that sexy ass smirk as he leaned he and place a gentle kiss upon my lips.
"Did you need help my love?" he whispered against my lips smiling when my heart sputtered. He kissed me again deeper this time and a hell of a lot hotter and I was panting.
"Ed…Edwa… we can't…oh god…EJ"
"Is fast asleep love and I didn't have a chance to shower with you this weekend love, I plan to fix that right now" he said taking a large amount of body wash into his hands and rubbed together to make a nice lather. He turned me around as he used the soap and rubbed it into my shoulders and neck.
I couldn't help the moan that escaped me, it felt so good. He then proceeded to wash my back and my legs which were shaking. It was sheer will that kept me from pushing him against the bathroom wall and having my way with him.
I was panting by the time he turned me back around to face him, his eyes were black fire and I moaned again. His hands moved to cup my breasts, my body was aching for him and I'm sure he knew it too. He stood up and I could feel his erection against my stomach. I needed him NOW!
I tried to wiggle against him but he stopped me and then using his hands was caressing my breasts again. I growled at his teasing and he tensed.
"Bella, did you just growl?" I was confused, I was sure I had growled before, when I was pregnant, when Emmett pissed me off, what was so different now?
"Yeah, why? Edward I swear if you don't…" his mouth was on mine before I could finish and it was hot, wet and totally animalistic, in other words; sexy as hell.
"Baby that was the hottest thing I have ever heard" I was surprised by his words. He rarely called my baby and just the thought of my growling turning him on, huh? Who knew? I made a mental note to do it again in the near future.
His mouth crashed into mine again, our tongues fighting for dominance and I happily lost the fight. His hands were all over me finally making purchase on my backside. He lifted me up and backed me up against the wall as he finally slipped into me.
I moaned loudly and my head fell to his shoulder at the feel of him inside me. We set a steady rhythm mindful not to be loud in case we woke EJ up, I wasn't ready to explain what we were doing.
His movement were getting faster and I could see it in his face he needed to let go and soon, he was close and I wasn't far myself.
"Please love, I need you to cum, I can't hold on much longer, you feel so good, god baby hurry" he panted and I reached my hand down between us and rubbed small circles on my hyper sensitive nub. I cried out at the sensation and then rubbed faster as my orgasm approached quicker than I expected.
I could feel the coil tightening to its limits and then it snapped. Edward's mouth was on mine to keep me from screaming.
Edward buried his head in my neck and then I felt as he exploded inside me, thank god for birth control pills. His shudders finally subsided and he had this goofy look on his face that I couldn't help but kiss.
"Okay, more shower sex more often" he panted and I laughed loudly
"I have no problem with that"
He winked at me and then using his vampire speed he had us out, toweled off and in bed. I sighed in contentment and fell blissfully asleep.
It had been a few days since my family came back from Alaska and we were back to school, not happy about it but it was damn worth it to see Mike suffering from complete embarrassment when he arrived to school Monday.
He got out of his car half cocked, smiling and winking at all the girls giving them that stupid thumb up or finger and wink crap.
"Yo Newton, hey man, so I can get your autograph?" Tyler came up and asked him and Mike laughed but I could see he was confused.
"Sure you can have my autograph. Is it for teaching you how to be smooth with the ladies?" Mike asked, dumb fuck. I'm pretty sure I growled at his stupid attitude. Mine had been getting worse but I chalked it up to PMS, it was getting close to that time.
"Nah! It's because you're such a big star now" Tyler explained and I could see my family holding it in having heard what had happened.
Someone came up to him with their IPhone, I could see that YouTube was already up and the video of what happened at the bookstore was clearly displayed.
Mike watched in horror and turned an unhealthy shade of green. Everyone was laughing especially my family.
He tried to play it off by saying that people make stuff up all the time just to put it on the internet. It might have worked too if not for Emmett.
As Mike walked by looking as smug as ever, Emmett sang out "Francis" with a snort at the end. It was just loud enough for the others to hear which earned another round of laughter. Mike walked a bit faster only to trip up and a note flew out of his pocket which was caught by Jasper.
Mike looked on in horror although I'm sure Jazz was using his emotion ability against Mike.
"Francis, please try to be good today and make sure you wear clean underwear and pants that stay up love Grandma" Jasper read out loud and I'm sure they could hear the guffaws all the way to Seattle. My sisters and I had collapsed on each other laughing and Edward was rolling on the ground with Emmett.
I would have blamed Jasper on how hard we were all laughing but I let it go, we needed it.
Mike or sorry, Francis ran to his car and drove away while the rest of waved goodbye.
"Francis won't be bothering you anymore" Alice announced proudly once our giggles had subsided.
"Thanks god for that" I said
Edward kissed the side of my head, wrapped his arm around my shoulders and led us all into the school.
The whole town found out that week we were engaged, it had been a while but we figured there was no point in hiding it, of course Alice had decided that she needed to throw an engagement party, I begged her not to but she used her puppy dog eyes on me, I hadn't mastered how to say no to that look when any of them did it. Funny how much she, Edward and EJ looked alike when they did that, you'd never say they were related.
I was helpless against it and just gave in but bitched about it for days. Edward had noticed my foul mood as of late and asked me if I was okay.
"Love it's just you have been snapping at everyone and I thought for sure I was going to have to hold you down before you took Ms. Winter's head off"
"Well the bitch should have been doing her job instead of looking at your ass" I huffed. He gave me a pointed look and I sighed. He was right I had been a little moody lately
"Sorry Hun, it's PMS, it should be rearing its ugly head any day now"
He chuckled at me and told me it was okay. I was angry at myself, I had been a real bitch lately and decided that I was going to try and relax and not grumble and complain.
I recited that mantra all through the week and while Alice prepared me for the party.
The only thing that got me through was knowing that this party made our engagement real and EJ was an excellent distraction. He came into Alice's room tugging at his collar. For some god awful reason Alice had put him in this pant suit, while it was absolutely adorable, I knew he was more like me and would have rather have worn jeans and a t-shirt.
"Mommy this stuff itches me, why do I have this wear this monkey suit?" he asked and I lost it. I laughed till tears were streaming down my face.
"BELLA! YOU'RE GONNA RUIN ALL MY HARDWORK" Alice screeched but I waved her off, my son was holding all my attention.
"EJ sweetheart, you look very handsome but can you tell me who taught you that phrase" Rose asked as she picked EJ up kissing his cheek.
"I heard uncle Jazzy and Emmy telling each other that they wished that they didn't have to wear these monkey suits" EJ stated and I had to reel it in. The boys were gonna be in so much trouble.
"They're wrong sweetie, they're not monkey suits, monkeys don't wear suits and you're not a monkey are you?" Rose asked and then started to make sounds like a monkey while she tickled my son.
"Aunite Rose , stop, he he he, okay I'm not a monkey" he giggled and then jumped down to leave.
"EJ sweetie can you tell your uncle Jazzy that he is in big trouble" Alice asked sweetly.
EJ nodded, kissed my cheek and told me I looked pretty. He then walked out the door and screamed that uncle Jazz was in trouble.
"Oh fu…dge, I love you Allie baby" Jasper's apologies rang through the house. I shook my head at their antics and waited while Alice and Rose finished getting ready.
The party wasn't terrible, it was mostly my family, the Denalis (minus Tanya) made a special trip in and then there was my dad and a few people from school. Alice wanted to invite the whole town but I made sure Edward and Esme reined her in on that one.
It was a small affair, we let Carlisle invite some of his colleagues from the hospital and I did meet a couple of them. One was a handsome young intern who wanted to work with Carlisle. He took one look at me and then I heard Edward growl lowly, at least to a human's ears, I wasn't quite so human anymore.
I gave him a look and he just wrapped his arm around me tighter making sure I was tucked into his side.
I got it then, the intern who introduced himself as Blake, had thought something about me and Edward was clearly jealous and was marking his territory.
We walked away from the crowd for a while; he needed to calm down a bit.
"Edward what was he thinking?" I asked while placing kisses along his jaw, he needed a distraction.
"He was thinking about what you would be like wrapped around him, he was…please love don't make me repeat it" he sighed, still visibly upset and I decided to let it go.
We were congratulated by different people and then decided to go home. Charlie had left early saying that he might be at the station and he would see the three of us in the morning.
We decided to just let Charlie know that if I wasn't sleeping over at the Cullen's then Edward would be sleeping over. There was a bit of an argument but my dad agreed that since we were getting married and all there wasn't much point to argue.
The town was a buzz for a few days after our engagement party but it died down quickly when a local girl got pregnant, I felt bad for her, I knew what it was like to be young and in that position.
Edward sensing my mood assured me that the young girl was taken care of and while young, the father of her child would be there to support her, in fact a few days later the young couple came to us for advice, we told them what we could seeing as some of it was a lie but what the hell we were a family. They were wary of Edward, human instinct and all but I managed to keep them occupied with all the baby talk.
The couple left us happy and we decided to keep in touch with them just to make sure that everything went okay.
School was out for another weekend with me making plans for us. I wanted to go to Seattle as a family, no real agenda but I did know that I planned to take EJ to the Zoo and all these ideas were racing through my head as Edward and I drove the little man home who was playing with the new race car Emmett had bought him.
We were just about to turn on my street when Edward stopped the car and growled.
"Edward what's wrong?"
"Bella, I don't think you want to be home"
"Why? What is it?"
He shook his head and his eyes were black with anger but he did drive down the street and that's when I saw a shiny black car in the drive way.
Who the hell was here? I didn't recognize the car.
We pulled the car in when the front door opened and I heard shouting coming from two people.
"I told you to stay the hell away from here, now get out" that was my dad, he was pissed.
"NO I DON'T THINK SO, SHE OWES ME" Oh Shit! I'd recognize that voice anywhere.
That's what the door opened fully and out came Renee.
"You've got to be fucking kidding me" I thought. Fuck my life.
You really didn't think I'd have mommy dearest not make an appearance did you? I promise her appearance won't be long, but I had to bring her back so sorry if you thought Renee was gone.
Okay so I'm done and remember to review. I'll update soon.
