5. The Awesome Shower...and hide and go seek
Rating 5/5 Word Count 3140 Review this Chapter
He was so sweet and loving. Breakfast in bed! How lucky could I get? “Bella, what is it that you would like to do today?” This omelet is really good, how does he do it? “Edward, this is delicious, thanks again, and whatever you would like to do today is fine.” He sat there for a moment, and then got a devious smile across his face. What was he thinking?
“Edward, what are you smiling about? Please tell me what you are thinking.” He laughed and brushed his hand across my thigh and said, “Oh don’t worry about it yet, just eat. Then we can take a shower.” Now that sounds like fun, his body against my body with nothing on us but the water, mmmmm, “I like the sound of that. Good call Edward.”
I finished eating my breakfast and shuffled out of our bed and pulled the sheet around me only to feel an arm wrap around my waist. “Let me take care of that for you Mrs. Cullen. I’ll be back before you can blink.” And just like that he was off down the stairs. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to that. I tried to make my way towards the bathroom and there he goes again, sweeping me off my feet. “Allow me, my love.”
He had the shower running as he sat me down beside the foggy glass door. His silky hands removed the sheet I had delicately wrapped around my body. I was really beginning to like the size of the shower, it was big enough for well, let’s just say it was big enough for a lot of things. I walked over to the shower head and reveled in the hot water pouring from the top. It was like being under a hot water fall. I turned to see my Greek God of a husband entering the shower.
Edward slid up beside me and said, “Watch this.” He pushed a button and then a tile slid back and out came another shower head, but this time it was hitting me in the waist. This was wonderful! I had hot water all around me. I was wondering why he had done the shower this way. He noticed me in my thoughts. “Are you wondering why the extra shower heads?” “Shower heads, I thought this was it.” “No love, watch this.” Then he pushed another button and shower heads popped out from a few strategically placed areas in the shower’s walls.
“I thought we might spend a little time in here and never wanted my presence to make you cold. That is why I have all the different shower heads in here.” “Edward, this is like a mini water park!” “Well, I did it for you, so that even though I may be cold, when we are in here, you never should be.” “I understand Edward really I do, and appreciate it very much so, but what about the water we are wasting?”
He wrapped me in his arms so that I was facing him and kissed my forehead. I love this man so much, why am I so lucky? “Not to worry love, this house is completely green. Everything is recycled and all of our power comes from solar panels on the roof. Really Bella, don’t worry about it. The going green thing is great, plus Esme is really into it.” Well, that certainly made me feel better about all the water we were thought to have been wasting. “Edward that is really amazing, she is so clever.” “I know, she truly is a genius, now let’s get you cleaned up!”
When he said that my heart stuttered for a minute and then I was quickly brought back by the sound of his musical voice. “Bella, honey, breathe.” “I’m sorry but you might as well get used to the fact that you completely captivate me.” I wrapped my arms around him and smiled as he looked at me with his smoldering eyes. “Ah, yes I know, and I love it, but you captivate me as well, don’t forget that, love.”
I kissed him passionately and then pulled away too soon. He looked puzzled. “Are you alright? Did I do something wrong?” I could keep him in check just as easily as he dazzled me, “No Edward nothing is wrong, but you said you wanted to clean me up, well, I guess you better get started.” I heard a lustful growl brewing in his chest. I stepped backwards to reach for my shampoo, but he snatched it before I could reach it and pulled me back to him. I let out a small moan and then chuckled, “How did I do Edward? Did I captivate you, love?”
He just stood there with my favorite crooked smile. “You always captivate me, with the smallest things that you do, but that right there was just wrong. You were teasing me. And you know what that means?”
I bit my bottom lip and peered up at him through my wet lashes. Then I kissed his chest and wrapped my arms around his waist and slowly brought my nails up and down his back. “No Edward, but I bet you are going to tell me what that means.” That did it! Another growl came from his perfect lips and I suddenly found myself flat against one of the walls of the shower. There were no shower heads but I could still feel the hot water.
He grabbed my thighs and hoisted me up wrapping my legs around his waist. He kissed me; this was the kind of kiss that we shared last night. Not a simple I love you kiss, or I will be back, be safe kiss. This was the kind of kiss that says I want you in this shower, right now. He pulled away allowing me to breathe. But he didn’t stop kissing me. He left an icy trail down my neck and across my chest. I felt him go hard under me. His lips were everywhere at once, all over my chest and neck. His hands were entangled in my hair. I started to grind my hips into his. I think he got the point because he lifted me up and then slid it in.
Oh this feeling is wonderful! I moaned softly in his ear as he thrust in and out of me. My hands flew back onto the wall stretching out in pleasure. I bowed my chest into his so that he could get a little more action from my hips. I began to bounce on him. Damn he is so perfect! “Bella, are you okay, does it hurt at all?” I kissed his neck and then bit his ear lobe and moaned, “No Edward, please don’t stop. Edward, Edward, I can feel it again, oh Edward!” With that he kissed me again and picked up his pace. He started to sigh my name over and over again. Just as he was going his fastest I let out a yell of pleasure. He did the same and then slowed his pace as I kept panting. His lips were again all over the upper part of my body.
Finally I lay my head back on the wall and his head found comfort against my breasts. His lips found pleasure in them as well. “Bella, that bouncing thing you did, sure was, was, gratifying on my part. God, I love you so much. You have made me the happiest man in the world, I am so lucky to have you, Bella my angel.” He was so loving and grateful that I was his. “I feel the same way about you Edward, except you are my angel. I love you too.”
With that he let me down and the washed my hair for me and my body. Not that he needed it, but I soaped him up as well. He finished rinsing me off and the hopped out of the shower getting a rather large bath towel to wrap me up in. “Edward, how do I make all of the little shower heads go off, which button is it?” I heard him laugh and say, “Just turn the water off, then they will go back into the wall.” So I did and sure enough it worked. I walked towards the door and met his gaze. He has the towel opened up and waiting for me.
“I really don’t want to cover your amazing body up in this towel, but if I don’t you will catch a chill.” He was so cautious, not wanting to let anything happen to me. And thank goodness because as I got out of the shower and turned around I slipped on the wet floor and of course, he caught me and wrapped me up like a baby. “Thanks Edward. Will you ever get tired of how clumsy I am?”
He just threw me a loving smile and said, “Bella love, I will never tire of that, next time if I am not in here to catch you, just please remember to stay on the rugs.” With that he laughed and I shoved him away.
I walked over to the vanity and looked in the mirror. For some reason I noticed this glow about me. It must be the happiness that I am feeling inside. I smiled at that and said, “So what is it that you want to do today?” Edward was running a towel through his glorious bronze hair; he looked at me and smiled my favorite crooked smile. Then he grabbed me in his arms and whispered, “Shopping! Car shopping!”
I guess I should have known this was coming. He never was too fond of my old truck. I know what he is going to say, what is mine is yours so please try to be happy. Yes that is what he’ll say. “Okay Edward, I did say whatever you want.” He looked shocked that I didn’t put up a fight. “Well, that was a lot easier than I was anticipating.”
I walked over to him and said, “What yours is mine and mine is yours, right?” He kissed my cheek and then my lips, and said, “Yes Mrs. Cullen, that is correct. Now get dressed. Oh and by the way, do you really know how much I love you?” I was dazzled yet again. I had to look away just to get my bearings. “Well Edward if it is anywhere near the amount of love that I have for you, then I believe I do.”
I pulled away from his embrace as bad as I hated to, and walked into the closet. I looked through my clothes and after much time finally decided on a dark blue dress. It wasn’t formal or anything, but seductive enough that it might help me win an argument while shopping if I saw the need for it to.
It was a silky long sleeve wrap around dress. I found some suitable under garments and the matching shoes. I looked through my jewelry only to find that the few pieces I had were tripled. My new jewelry consisted of lots of matching gemstone earring and necklace pieces, diamond bracelets, earrings necklaces, pearl sets, etc. I delicately picked out a necklace that had a rather large square diamond hanging in the center. I really did like the necklace; I could only imagine how much it cost.
I was holding it up to the light marveling at its beauty when I felt my husband snake his arms around my waist. He rested his chin on my shoulder as he squeezed me lovingly. “Ah, I like that one. I bought it myself. Did you find the matching earrings?” I should have known. “No I have not even looked for any earrings to wear yet. This necklace is beautiful. When and where did you get it? I assumed Alice had stocked the jewelry drawer for me.” He laughed and kissed my shoulder. He spun me around in his arms as he made a “tsking” sound, as if he were criticizing my words.
“Bella, Alice is not the only one who has exquisite taste in jewelry. I bought this a few days before the wedding. I went into Seattle to get a few things together, a few last minute house details, as I passed by Tiffany’s, I thought of you and so I stopped in. I found the set and just knew I had to have it for you. So here we are. Would you like for me to help you with that?”
I have to admit, I was baffled by his sense of on the spot shopping for me. I have never been treated like this before; I still don’t know whether I want to wake up from this dream. Of course he noticed because as he bent down to press his lips against mine he said, “Get used to this, I want nothing more than to spoil you like the Queen you are.” As I kissed him back and entwined my fingers through his hair, I realized that I didn’t want to ever wake up from this dream.
He put the necklace on me and then found the matching earrings. As I placed them into my ears, he took a step back from me and looked at me in the mirror. He had this look of perfection on his face. “I am truly a lucky man. My goodness Bella, you are absolutely stunning.” I suppressed a small chuckle and turned around and looked at my glorious husband. He had not gotten dressed yet. Even though I was happy looking at him in his boxers, I wondered why. “Well, Edward, you don’t look too bad yourself in your boxers. Are you ready to go?” “Ha ha very funny, love. I was taking the sheets off of the bed and put them into the washer. But I am sure we could get a good deal on you a car if I went like this, especially if we have a female sales person.”
With that, I walked right out of the closet and out of the bedroom. I went into one of the guest rooms downstairs to hide from him. Just as I was getting behind the dresser in the corner I heard, “Bella, oh my beautiful wife Bella? Where are you? You know I can hear your heart beat. It is a sound that I will never mistake.” Damn it! He is right. Well I wonder what he will think if I hold my breath?
As I woke up from the blackness I heard, “BELLA!!! Are you ok? Why did you do that? Don’t ever try to make your heart stop beating my holding your breath, it doesn’t work. It is in your body’s natural reflex’s to breathe! Oh love I was only kidding. You know that thought doesn’t even cross my mind. I love you and only you. I don’t even look at other women!”
I sat up on the bed and pulled away from his arms and said quite angrily, “If the thought doesn’t cross your mind, then why did it come out of your mouth? And I always know that no matter where we go there are tons of women that would love to be with you and wonder why me? Why such a petty, plain looking girl is with such a beautiful man. I know that Edward! You don’t have to remind me!”
He picked me up off the bed and pulled me into his arms. He locked his hands so I couldn’t get away. “Stupid strong vampire,” I muttered. “Bella, now I am sorry, I didn’t mean it like that and I hope you know it. You have whatever heart I have left. Because I can hear the thoughts of women I don’t even want to look at them. I have been around long enough to know what women think about me. I am not going to lie, that it has been used to my advantage, but I could only ever look at you with the truthfulness that my heart encompasses. I love you and only you. Will you please forgive me trying to tease you?”
He mesmerized me with his dazzling crooked smile that I love so dearly and as he spoke he made sure his breath reached my nose. I know what he is trying to do, but then again I can’t help but love him for it. Stupid vampire husband I thought. Glad that he can’t hear my thoughts, but sometimes I wished he could.
“Fine Edward, whatever. I know that you are trying to dazzle me into forgiveness. I would have forgiven you anyway. You know I love you too, but it is hard to feel really comfortable at your side sometimes when I know that people around us think that you are with me out of pity. It hurts my ego. But you wouldn’t have any idea how that feels now do you?”
“Isabella Marie Cullen! Now you stop that right now! I love you and only you and you mean the world to me. You know that. Now are you ready for a new car?” Man I hated when he saw right through me. “I guess so”, I said dully. “You know Bella; I think you are too cute when you pout like that. Are you ready love?” I smiled back at him and placed the palm of my hand against his marble hard cheek. He closed his eyes in enjoyment. “I just need to go brush my teeth, then we can go.”
He scooped me up and flew back to our bathroom. He must be ready to go. He was moving his hair around in the mirror as he waited on me. As if it didn’t always look perfect. As if he doesn’t always look perfect. He was looking extra perfect today in his dark denim pants and dark colored dress shirt. Even the jacket he wore screamed sexiness. Thank God he is my husband, that way I can gawk at him all I want to and not feel bad about it.
“Okay, let’s go find me a new car.” He grabbed me a lightweight jacket that looked appropriate to wear with my dress and then my hand and all but carried me down the stairs and in to the garage. He opened the door to his Vanquish, which I thought was kind of a surprise and then he sped off down the winding roads. “You know Bella; this is a special occasion, so I want to take the special occasion car.”
