"I think Bella and Eddie are here!" Emmett yelled from the living room as soon as we walked in the door.
"Get your asses in here, now!" Alice called. Edward rolled his eyes as he gestured towards the living room.
"You guys didn't have to yell." Edward muttered once we reached the living room. I noticed Alice standing in front of a huge shelf filled with movies. While Jasper was sprawled out on one sofa and Emmett on the other with his head resting on someones lap. When she turned around to look back at Edward and I, I couldn't help but think she was a model. She had this thick long blonde hair with a pale complexion and what looked like bright red lipstick.
"You two need to vote on which movie we should watch." Alice whipped around, pointing a finger at us.
"Bella, this is Rose, Rose this is Bella." Edward introduced us, ignoring Alice.
"Hi Bella. Sorry we haven't gotten the chance to meet before." She smiled.
"No problem." I shrugged.
"Where the hell is the popcorn, Alice?" Emmett barked, shooting off the couch.
"I didn't make it yet, Em," Alice retorted as she held up two movies.
"Both of you need to pick one because we are tied two for two." She told us.
"Love & Other Drugs." We said in unison. Alice raised her eyebrows at us in surprise.
"Of course, they would vote for the same movie." Jasper muttered from the sofa.
"That's only cause Eddie boy over here doesn't like Transformers." Emmett replied, looking at Edward disgustedly.
"Shut up, Em." Edward cut in.
"How can my own brother not like the Transformers movies?" Emmett asked rhetorically.
"Oh right, because Eddie's really a chick at heart." Emmett laughed, shaking his head.
"We aren't brothers by blood, Emmett." Edward reminded him. Huh? I thought as my eyes flashed to Edward.
"So, you're adopted. Doesn't change anything." Emmett replied honestly.
"Isabella Swan?" A man called. My eyes flashed to the man. He had blue eyes and dirty blond hair. He looked like he was my age. I stared at him wide eyed for a moment before getting up to follow him towards the back of the office.
"Dr Cullen will be with you in a moment." He smiled at me shortly before closing the door. I waited, staring at the white walls around me. The door opened slowly and my jaw hung open. He was good looking, that was for sure. He had blond tresses, and pale white skin with golden brown eyes.
"Bella, right?" He asked, a little nervous.
"Uh. . . yeah." I muttered incoherently. How could someone be that good looking. Cullen, why did that sound so familiar? Cullen- Edward Cullen. My jaw slacked again.
"Are you related to Edward Cullen?" I asked before I even realized I had said that out loud. Dr. Cullen chuckled, His laugh sounded contagious.
"Edward's my adopted son." He said, filling out a sheet of paper.
"Maybe he is just tryin' to impress his girl." Jasper said. Standing up for Edward, who seemed to be ignoring them now.
"He's whipped." Emmett laughed, ruffling Edward's hair as he went to make the popcorn. Edward shook his head, running his hand through his hair.
"You and Bella can take the blow up mattress. Emmett and Rose are sharing that sofa-" Alice told Edward, pointing to the sofa against the wall. "Jasper and are will be taking the other one." She continued, motioning to the other loveseat facing the Flat screen. Edward glanced at me with a sly smile as he went to lay on the mattress.
Well, this should be interesting . . . I thought as I lay down next to him. Once we all got settled with three bowls of popcorn, Alice started the movie.
"I can't believe we are watching this romantic crap. Thanks Eddie!" Emmett wined.
"Oh my god, Em, you're are the biggest baby in the whole world. Shut up and watch the damn movie already." Rose yelled, slapping his arm.
"Ow! That hurt woman!" Emmett complained.
"Grow up!" Rose yelled back as all the previews ended, the movie about to start. The room falling silent as the movie started. We laughed at some scenes throughout the movie, and others everyone was silent. Except Emmett, who found a reason to mock every scene in the movie. We all laughed at the scene when Jamie catches his brother getting off to the video of him and Maggie, but it was at the end of the movie when Jamie goes after Maggie when Emmett finally shut up.
I heard Alice sniffling on the sofa behind me when Jamie hurries onto the bus to tell Maggie he needs her. I was already at the point where, normally, if I was watching this alone; I would be crying, but Alice's sniffling behind me wasn't helping my case. I should have know better than to think I could have held it back. . .
I felt the tears leak from my eyes against my will when I heard someone start to sing in the background as Jamie looks at Maggie and says "But you," To make matters worse, Edward noticed the tears sliding down my face. I covered my face with my arm to hide the uncontrollable tears leaking from my eyes. I froze when I heard Edward chuckling quietly beside me causing me to peak at him from under my sleeve. I tried not to smile at the crooked grin that etched onto his face and his green eyes looking back at me. He didn't say anything as he wrapped an arm around my shoulder and pulled me into his side.
"Silly girl," He whispered into my ear.
"Shut up.' I whispered back, wiping away the tears that escaped my eyes. Edward chuckled, pulling me closer into his side.
"Alice and Rose are balling their eyes out right now. You have no reason to be embarrassed." He murmured as he gently grabbed my hand, intertwining our fingers.
"Really?" I asked, my voice cracking slightly as I looked at his face. He nodded.
"I'm sure they've already used up all the tissue in the bathroom." He smirked, chuckling to himself. I giggled, lifting my head to see if anyone was still in the room.
"Where did Emmett and Jasper go?" I wondered.
"I'm pretty sure they're making a late night snack in the kitchen." Edward shrugged, playing with my fingers.
"Charlie is probably expecting me home soon . . ." I murmured quietly after glancing at my phone, and seeing it was already quarter after eleven. Edward's eyes flickered to mine quickly.
"Stay here, Bella. Stay with me." I hated when he looked at me like that; as though he would die if I said no.
"I . . . can't, Edward. What would be my reason? Yeah, I'm spending the night at the Cullen's to be with my boyfriend. Charlie would shoot you, and then keel over." I muttered bitterly sarcastic. I nudged Edward with my shoulder when I noticed he was quietly laughing at me.
"Bella, you fell asleep and Carlise and Esme would feel better if you stayed here for the night." Edward smirked, raising his eyebrows at me suggestively.
"That's plausible, but may I remind you, Charlie is the chief of police." I tisked. Edward chuckled humorlessly.
"Or you're just a terrible liar, and refuse to admit it." Edward replied, trying to hide a wicked smirk. He was too evil sometimes, it bothers me . . .
"I don't like you right now." I grumbled, pushing away from him to cross my arms over my chest. Edward laughed, turning onto his side to face me, and rested his head against his hand.
"I'm sure you'll get over it." He snorted. I growled at him in reply. Edward sighed before pulling himself closer to my side, laying his arm across my stomach.
"Are you really arguing with me about this because you're afraid to tell Charlie you are staying here tonight, or is it because you don't want to stay here . . .with me tonight?" He asked, hesitantly.
"I promise not to try and seduce you into my bed." He swore, half teasingly.
"No, it's not that, Edward." I shook my head quickly.
"Then what is it?" He wondered.
"It's not you. It's Charlie." I sighed, turning my head to look at him.
"We can have Alice call him. Everybody's a sucker when it comes to Alice." He chuckled, trying to lighten the sudden tension rolling off of me.
"I'm going to call him." I decided as I sat up. Edward's eyes widened.
"You . . . , you want to stay here . . . with me?" He asked, disbelieving and looking a little stunned.
"Why is that so hard to believe?" I wondered.
"It's not. It's just, I'm just pleasantly surprised is all." He shrugged almost shyly. I couldn't help but smile at him, he was adorkable sometimes.
"If you were a girl, Edward, you'd be blushing right now." I whispered in his ear, kissing his cheek quickly before I scurried away to call Charlie.
"Bella? Is that you?" Charlie answered, sounding as though he fell asleep.
"Hey Dad, sorry if I woke you up." I said as I walked into the lounge room, sitting on the sofa across from the lit fireplace.
"It's past midnight, Bella. When are ya coming home?" He asked, peeved.
"Uhm, would it be okay if I stayed at the Cullen's for the night? Carlisle and Esme insist." I added. Well, that was a cheap line. Yeah, only if you don't get away with it, or if Charlie realizes that you are lying.
"Bella, I can come get you." Charlie muttered as I heard scruffling in the background.
"No, Dad. I'll be fine here, really. Don't come." I reassurred.
"Bella . . ." He sighed.
"I'm sorry, I fell alseep while we were watching the movie, and I didn't realize how late it was."
"Well, you seem fine with the idea of staying there tonight, and if Carlisle and Esme insist, I have no reason to come get you myself."
"Exactly." I said, hopefully.
"Are you sleeping in Alice's room then?" Charlie wondered. I rolled my eyes.
"They have a guest room." I said, trying not to laugh. Overprotective fool . . .
"That's good. Alright, I'm off to bed, Bells."
"Night. Love you." I said quickly.
"Night, kiddo." Charlie muttered.
"Charlie give the okay?" Edward wondered as he walked into the room.
"Yeah, I think he's a little opposed to the idea of me staying here tonight." I chuckled, rolling my eyes. Edward's eyes narrowed.
"Charlie seems to be a bit apprehensive about you." I told him. Edward quirked an eyebrow at me.
"Why is that?" He asked as he sat on the sofa next to me.
"I don't know." I shrugged.
"Hmm," Edward hummed as he pulled me into his side.
"That was a nice stunt you pulled by the way." He whispered into my ear. I bit my lip guiltily.
"I thought you'd like it." I laughed. Edward chortled, lifting me into his lap. Edward's eyes locked on mine for a moment.
"What?" I whispered curiously. Why was he looking at me that way?
"You're so beautiful." He whispered after a moment. I sighed, looking away from him.
"You really need to stop doing that." I mumbled as I met his eyes again.
"Doing what?" He asked puzzled.
"Making me blush." I said simply. I was not going into the whole thing about him making my heart race, and my hands quiver.
Edward snorted. "I like making you blush." He grinned crookedly.
"You could have anyone you want, Edward. Literally anyone. . . so, why me?" I wondered. I just couldn't understand; as many times as he's tried to tell me, I still can't get it straight.
"I told you," He whispered as he slid his fingers between mine.
"I don't want anyone else, Bella. I just want you." He said, looking me straight in the eyes.
"But-" Edward cut me off quickly, pressing a finger to my lips.
"But nothing, Bella." He murmured. I groaned, laying my head against his chest.
"Are you tired?" He asked after a long moment of silence.
"No." I lied. I could almost see the smile on Edward's face as I said that.
"Come on, you can sleep in my room for the night. I'll sleep in the guest room." He said as he tried to lift me off his lap.
"No, Edward. I'm not taking your room. I'll sleep in the guest room." I told him as I sat up.
"I'm not letting you sleep in the guest room, Bella." Edward replied as he stood up from the couch. I huffed.
"Why not?" I demanded, turning around to face him.
"Because I'm trying to be a gentleman, and you are making it extremely difficult." He told me.
"I'm not going to make you sleep in the guest room because I'm sleeping in your room, Edward." I retorted.
"Fine. We'll both sleep in my room then. You sleep in the bed and I'll sleep on the sofa." He compromised.
"Deal." I said, giving in. I hate giving in . . .
Edward followed me upstairs to his room, quietly closing the door behind him. I glanced at the sofa next to the large bay window.
"I think that sofa is a little too small for you." I said. Edward rolled his eyes at me.
"I'll be fine, Bella." He chuckled.
"What if I asked you to sleep in the bed . . . with me?" I wondered, curiously. Edward's eyebrows rose slightly.
"I think that can be arranged." He said cautiously.
"Really?" I asked surprised.
"Under one condition." He said, holding up a finger.
"What's the condition?" I demanded, trying not to roll my eyes at him.
"Our clothes stay on." He said pointedly.
"I'm pretty sure I can keep my clothes on, Edward, I don't know about you . . ." I said, trailing off. Edward snorted.
"You don't have to worry about me taking my clothes off, Bella." He chuckled, shaking his head.
"See? Compromise never hurts, Edward." I teased. Edward smiled as he stepped towards me, his hands wrapping around the sides of my waist as he slowly backed me towards the bed. Hiis lips caught mine as he eased me backwards onto the mattress. Edward used his forearm to hold up some of his weight as he continued to kiss me, his other hand still curled around the side of my waist.
"You always have a loophole." I murmured against his lips. I felt Edward's lips turn up into a smile against mine.
"Does it seem that way to you?" He wondered, pressing his lips to mine again.
"Mmhm." I hummed against his mouth. If he isn't going to be the death of me, then, I don't know what is. Edward pulled his lips away from mine to press kisses down my neck, pulling aside the neck of my shirt and continued to press small kisses down my shoulder. My hands slid down from around his neck to the buttons of his shirt. Edward quickly caught my hands between one of his, stopping me.
"What are you doing?" He whispered, resting his forehead against mine as our eyes met.
"Unbuttoning your shirt." I muttered.
"That's a rule breaker." He warned. I rolled my eyes.
"I wasn't going to take it off, Edward." I laughed. You'd think I just committed a crime. Well, . . .you did commit a crime, . . .sort of. Edward groaned, ducking his head into my shoulder.
"My control is waning, Bella," He muttered.
"We should stop." He added, lifting his head up to look at me. I already knew we should stop, but that doesn't mean I wanted to.
"Why?" I asked, it was a stupid question, I know.
"Because I'm not going to be able to stop if we keep going."
"Then don't stop." I mumbled. Those teenage hormones of yours really are insatiable, Swan . . .
Edward groaned again. "Not tonight, Bella." He whispered, pressing his lips to mine once more before pushing himself off of me. Buzzkill Bella . . .
We were silent for a moment. I fidgetted with the ends of my shirt, suddenly shy as Edward rebuttoned his shirt.
"Bella?" Edward asked after a moment, causing me to jump out of my daze.
'Hmm?" I replied, unable to look him in the eyes. Edward leaned forward bringing his face to mine.
"Believe me, I want to." He whispered roughly.
"Can I ask you something?" I asked after a long moment when a sudden thought reoccured to me.
"Anything." Edward answered quickly.
"Emmett said something earlier about you being adopted." I said, gouging his respone.
"And?" He implored.
"Carlisle told me . . . that you were adopted the day before we met." I admitted quietly, meeting Edward's gaze.
"That's not a question, Bella." He said pointedly.
"Why didn't you ever tell me?" I asked. Edward sighed, pinching the bridge of his nose between his fingers.
"I never meant to hide it from you. There was just never a reason for me to mention it." He shrugged apologetically.
"Okay, but that's not exactly why I brought it up." I murmured. Edward stared at me warily.
"Then, why did you bring it up?" He asked, perplexed. I bit my lip, debating whether or not I should ask.
"What happened to your parents, Edward?" I wondered, holding his gaze. Edward sighed deeply.
"Out of every question you could have asked me; you ask that question." He muttered sullenly, shaking his head.
"You don't have to tell me, if you don't want to. I just have a feeling there is a lot about you, you aren't telling me." I said as he leaned over to cover his eyes with his palms, and running his hand through his hair before his gaze returned to mine.
"I can't tell you the whole story tonight, Bella."
"I'm not asking you to." I replied sincerely.
