As soon as Emmett had Edward secured in a standing position I pulled the plug from over the drain; murky water emptying out of the tub. Emmett moved with Edward over into the standing shower that was also included in Edward’s massive bathroom.
“Alright, here you go Bella,” Alice said while handing me a bottle of what looked to be shampoo. I just looked at her and it with confusion. She must have seen my expression. “You need to rinse off too young lady,” said Alice, causing me to blush.
“Alice!” Esme scolded, I’m sure Bella is very capable of knowing when to clean up. She does not need you to tell her when. Understand me?” shed asked Alice. I don’t think I’ve ever heard Esme speaking so sternly to anyone. Everyone else seemed to be taken aback by it too.
I looked over towards where Emmett was holding Edward and noticed something on Edward that made my eyes go wide. I looked back at Alice and she nodded her head at me. I then hurried to stand in front of Edward. I brought my eyes back to his. I gave him a small smile in understand as a blush warmed my cheeks.
“It’s alright Esme. Alice is right in that I’ve got to rinse off too.” I assured her. I again looked to Alice and she also nodded her head again.” They all, but Alice, gave me an imploring look, wanting an explanation for it. “It’s sort of a private moment type of thing,” I clarified.
“She’s right; it needs to happen this way,” Alice confirmed, “I’ve seen it.”
“If it gets to where we need help then we’ll call for you,” I promised. This seemed to convince them it would be alright.
I placed myself in which I was flush up against Edward; hardly any space was left between us. This also prevented the possibility of anyone noticing the slight protuberance coming from the front of Edward’s pants. This was now a pressure that now rested against my lower stomach. Edward’s always had self-control but he’s so weak at this point that he doesn’t have any restraint. I wrapped my arms as tightly as I could around his mid section so that he would not fall over once I asked Emmett to let go of him. Edward enclosed his arms around me as best he could manage. His dropped to the rest on my shoulder into the crook of my neck. He sucked in a deep breath, inhaling the scent of my blood that seemed to have a somewhat calming affect on him. He then placed a kiss on my bare skin.
“Emmett, you can let go of him now; I’ve got him.” I said once I was positive I had a good grip on Edward.
He let him go and Edward stayed within my arms. All except Alice moved out of the bathroom and headed downstairs. Esme did come back briefly only to bring in a new change of clothes for Edward and me but she left just as quickly as she came in.
In the mean time Alice had taken the shampoo from my hand and turned the shower to the hot water though not to the point to where it would burn me. She then started to wash Edward’s hair at which I did have to admit was a bit amusing considering Edward isn’t standing at his usual height and Alice still has to fully extend her arms to reach all of his hair. Though, it was somewhat easier for her to get the top of his head because he had it resting upon my shoulder. She grabbed the removal shower head so that she could rinse his hair of soap without spraying it directly in my face.
“I’m sorry,” Edward quietly said to me while still in the same position.
“Whatever for?” I asked a little confused. Alice started on my hair, gently working out the gunk, kinks and knots.
“Right now for embarrassing you. I didn’t mean to…” he trailed off. It was obvious the he felt bad about not being able to control his body. His silent admission just made my heart swell with more love for him which I didn’t know was possible that I already loved him more than anything on heaven and earth.
I waited a moment before replying so that Alice could rinse my hair out. I placed a small kiss on his neck as I gathered my thoughts to comfort him. “Edward, it’s ok. You are weak and don’t have control of your bodily…functions.” I blushed when I said that last part. “It’s not your fault,” I assured him.
“Alright you two, time to dry off,” Alice said while shutting off the water and grabbing some towels.
When she said this I realized that to get Edward into his dry clothes meant that Alice and I would need to take off his wet boxers to dry off his body. “Um…Alice,” I started to ask.
“I’m on it Bella,” she replied after taking a second to work out how were going to pull this off –no pun intended.
She grabbed two large towels. The first one she used to gently ruffle through his hair and patted down his back and chest. She then brought the towel to where it was between us so it covered his.parts and would close in the back.
“Bella, hold this,” she ordered as she placed the towel ends in my hands where I was still holding onto Edward, thereby covering his bottom from view. Alice then took the other towel and patted down his legs. She found the bottoms of his wet boxers and yanked them down his legs. Of course I had to blush once they were completely off, which actually earned a small chuckle I felt against my neck.
Alice grabbed the dry boxers and had Edward move each foot high enough to maneuver they shorts up his legs. She pulled them far enough up to where they were just underneath the cheeks of his tush.
“Bella, let go of the towel and pull up his boxers the rest of the way once I hold onto Edward,” she instructed. I did as I was told. “Ok now you can get dried and changed while we get him into the bed.” She moved to where she was in front of him- where his problem had already dissipated- and said, “Hi big brother, let’s let Bella get changed. Emmett!” called out. Pf course it only took Emmett a second to appear in the doorway, ready to take Edward from Alice and move out of the bathroom.
“Take your time Bella.” Alice said while walking out of the doorway. “And thank you, you know, for doing all of this,” she added.
“Alice, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We both know that this is where I belong: with him, you- the whole family. It’s always been here,” I replied to her. She smiled, nodded her head and shut the door.
