AN: I am amazed at the response from last chapter. We reached just over 320 reviews. Thanks so much. I think that this might be that last chapter. I think I have almost covered everything. This is gonna pick up about a month after the wedding/baby. Enjoy.
Bella rolled over in bed and slid her arm over to Edward's side, finding it empty and cold. She sat up and looked around, before hearing a noise on the baby monitor.
"Matty, do you know how lucky you are? Your mommy is the most beautiful and kind woman in the world."
She smiled as she listened to her husband talking quietly to their son. In the month since he had been born, Matty had completely changed Edward. Bella had thought she loved him before, but it was deeper and stronger now.
Bella got out of bed and went into the bathroom to start her shower. She stepped under the warm spray and let the tension roll of her shoulders. Edward was going back to work today and to say she was worried would be the understatement of the century.
When she was clean she got out and dried off. She pulled on her clothes for the day and went to Matty's bedroom to feed him, so the Edward could get ready to go.
"How long has he been up?" She asked as she walked into the room.
Edward looked up and smiled, "Not long. He was wet, so I got him changed; now I think he's getting hungry."
Bella grinned and took her son. She turned and sat in the rocking chair, before freeing her breast, giggling as Matty immediately latched on. "I think Daddy is right little man. You are hungry."
Edward smiled as he watched his wife feed their son. He looked at his watch and kissed them both quickly before heading out the door to get to work. He pulled up to the station just as the tones dropped and jumped into action.
He ran to the wall and pulled on his turn outs, smiling at the familiar task. He jumped onto the moving engine and fist bumped Emmett.
"Glad to have you back cuz. How's the baby?"
"You wouldn't believe how big he is and only a month old." They talked as they made their way to the blaze. As they pulled up on scene, Edward sighed happily.
Bella checked and re-checked the diaper bag to make sure she had everything. When she was satisfied she threw it over her shoulder and picked up Matty and his car seat. They were going to spend the afternoon with Nana Esme. It would be his first outing since they had brought him home and Bella was looking forward to getting out of the house.
The drive to Esme's was peaceful since the baby had fallen asleep almost as soon as she had pulled away from the curb. She smiled as she pulled up to the house and noticed Alice and Rose were there too. She was out of the car and in the house before Matty could wake.
"Bella!" Alice squealed.
"Alice," she hissed. She pointed at her sleeping son and gave her a dirty look.
"Oops, sorry." Alice whispered.
"It's okay. Just keep it down." Bella admonished. She carried the still sleeping Matty into the living room and sat his seat down.
"Bella dear, I'm so glad that you could come today. How much longer until that grandson of mine wakes up?" Esme smiled.
Bella grinned at her mother-in-law. Just as she was about to speak Matthew let out a loud cry. "He's all yours Esme."
Esme clapped and immediately removed her grandson from his seat. She cooed at him and swayed gently until he settled down, gurgling and holding onto her finger. While Esme entertained the baby, Bella settled in for some girl talk.
"So Alice, how are you feeling?" Alice had been sick for the last month or so with morning sickness. Too bad that for her it lasted all day.
"I'm feeling okay. I've only puked twice today, so that's something." Alice giggled. "You were so lucky Bella that you didn't have to deal with this with Matty."
Bella nodded, "I know. I just had to worry about a psycho out to get me."
"Have you talked to Garrett? Have they figured out what happened yet?" Rosalie wanted to know.
Bella nodded, "He called Edward last week. I guess Victoria ticked off an inmate because she was always muttering under her breath. So a plan was cooked up and Vic was killed. Is it wrong that I want to send them a thank you card?"
"Does Hallmark make a 'thank you for killing the person who tried to kill me' card?" Esme giggled.
The women laughed, "Maybe we should suggest it."
The rest of the afternoon was spent laughing and catching up. Bella finally left to get Matty home and bathed before Edward got home. She had just settled him in his crib and was in the kitchen starting dinner when the door opened.
Edward saw his gorgeous wife making dinner and couldn't fight the urge to be near her. He walked to her and wrapped his arms around her and pulled her back against his chest. He leaned his head down and kissed her neck at the base of her ear. Her moan went straight to his dick.
"Edward, don't start something that you can't finish." She breathed.
Edward moved to her earlobe. He nibbled as he whispered, "Who says I'm not gonna finish?"
Bella turned in his arms and met his lips as they descended to hers. Their tongues danced and Bella felt herself grow wet under his familiar touch.
"Edward, baby, we can't. I haven't gotten the all clear yet." Bella panted.
It had only been four weeks since Matty was born. They had to wait another two before they could have sex again. Bella wasn't sure why, she was in no pain and the doctors had not had to do an episiotomy so there were no stitches. She wanted to make love to her husband. They hadn't been able to since they got married the day that she gave birth.
Edward made no move to pull away. He could almost hear the wheels turning in her head as she contemplated her options. He moved from her mouth back to her neck and to her collar bone. He sucked and nibbled at her skin, smiling when he felt the goose bumps pop up.
Bella ran her hands down the hard planes of Edwards chest and then slowly pulled his shirt from his pants and up over his head. She threw it somewhere and raked her finger nails down his hard abs. He hissed at her motions.
"Baby, we can do other things. Please I need you so much." He swept his arms under her knees and carried her to their bedroom. He laid her gently on the bed and then began to slowly undress her. He kissed his way down her body as her clothing was removed.
Bella was moaning and writhing, "Edward please…" she begged.
Edward was at the apex of her thighs when he looked up at her, "What do you need baby?"
"You…" she moaned, as she watched him lower his head.
He could smell her arousal and wanted her all the more. He ran his tongue through her slit, before reaching to flick her clit. He grinned when Bella bucked her hips into his face. He sucked her swollen nub into his mouth as he gently eased a finger inside her.
"Edward!" Bella reached her hands into his hair and held him where she wanted him.
Edward added a second finger and moved them in and out, while sucking and flicking her clit. He could feel her begin to tighten around him and sucked her into his mouth, while curling his fingers inside.
Bella cried her release as Edward lapped up all her juices. When he was done he crawled up her body and kissed her, knowing that she would taste herself on him.
Bella pressed on his shoulder and turned him to his back. She kissed her way down his chest, showing careful attention to his sensitive nipples. She reached his uniform clad legs and released the button and lowered the zipper slowly, making sure to trace his erection as she went.
"Bella," he groaned.
Bella smiled as she removed his pants and boxers in one tug. She licked her lips when she saw his long glorious cock waiting for her attention. She leaned forward and blew on his sensitive head, smiling when he twitched. Lowering her head she licked the tip, while cupping his balls in her hand. She leaned forward more and licked the vein that ran along the underside, before closing her lips around him and sucking him into her mouth.
Edward groaned at the feel of her warm, wet mouth wrapped around his rigid cock. He had missed her touch. He reached down and wrapped his hands in her hair and helped her set the pace as she bobbed her head up and down.
Bella alternated between soothing licks and gentle scrapes of her teeth, until Edward could feel the tightening, signaling his impending release.
"Oh, baby…I'm gonna…"
Bella just bobbed her head faster and hollowed her cheeks more and soon Edward erupted into the back of her throat, screaming her name with abandon. After Bella had licked him clean she crawled back up the bed to him and curled into his side.
"I love you Bella." Edward whispered as they drifted off.
"I love you too." Bella smiled against his neck.
They had only been asleep minutes when Matty woke up needing to be fed. Thus was the life of new parents.
Edward was gone when Bella woke the next morning. She got up and walked to Matty's room and found him cooing at the mobile above his head. She smiled and leaned down to run her finger down his cheek.
"What are you doing little man?"
He continued to coo at her as she got him out of his crib to get him changed and fed. She had just laid him back down and was on her way to the shower, when her phone rang.
"Hi Dad. What's up?"
Charlie sighed. "Bella honey, I need you to come down to the station please."
Bella was instantly on alert. "Why dad, what's wrong?"
"I'll tell you when you get here sweetie." Charlie disconnected.
Bella quickly jumped in the shower and got dressed. She packed the diaper bag and grabbed her son, before heading to the police station. When she got there she looked around for her dad.
"He's in his office, Bella." Jessica said from her position at the desk.
"Thanks," Bella headed in that direction. She knocked softly and heard the gruff welcome. She peaked around the door, "Dad?"
"Hey, Bells come on in honey."
Bella walked into her father's office and put Matt's car seat down. She sat in the chair across from his desk and shifted nervously.
"Bella there is no easy way to tell you this so I am just gonna say it. Demetri and Felix died this morning."
Bella's eyes filled with tears and she felt her hands start to shake, "H…How?"
"You know that they were flying out to Guam to go pick up the baby they were going to adopt right? There was something wrong in the engine of the plane that was missed on the pre-flight inspection and the plane went down. There were over a hundred passengers on the flight, unfortunately there were no survivors."
Bella sat in the chair stunned as the tears poured down her cheeks. She barely heard Matty start to cry. She was only aware of Charlie picking up and cooing at him. She quickly got herself together and wiped her eyes.
"Do you have him Dad? I need to call Edward." Charlie nodded and Bella pulled her phone out and called her husband.
"Edward…" She couldn't get anything out as she began to cry again.
"Bella, what's wrong? Is it Matt? Baby?"
"No, um…I'm at Dad's office. Uh, Felix is dead…so is Demetri."
"I'll be there in ten minutes."
Bella hung up and looked back at her dad. "What's gonna happen to the bar, Dad?"
Charlie looked up from his grandson, "I don't know Bells. That's for the lawyers to handle."
The door opened behind them and Edward walked in, "Hey." He immediately wrapped Bella in his arms, holding her as she grieved for her friends.
AN: Sorry this update took so long, RL has been kicking my butt. I am on a mini vacation now and I plan to have this one completed before Wednesday.
I'm sure that the ending of this chapter was a shock, but I had their deaths planned since the beginning. I have re-written this chapter four times and I am still not happy with it, but this comes closer to what I wanted than any of the others. Let me know what you thought. I know it's kind of bland….
