CBWR? Chapter 64

Author’s notes
O...k...I'll try posting it again!  LOL 

Here’s another one for ya!

I sucked at this.
___________________________________________________
Chapter 64
I made my third pass around the train, and I still didn’t see any sign of the guy who had been following us before, but I wasn’t stupid enough to think he couldn’t have any friends.  We changed trains when we stopped in Stuttgart and headed to Luxembourg.  We bought multiple tickets again there, and switched again at the last possible minute to head back to Paris.
I had to practically carry Bella to the train car, she was so tired.  It was afternoon, and we hadn’t slept all night.  As soon as we entered the private car, I shut the door, pulled the shade down to block out the sun, and let her lay down on the seat with her head in my lap.  She was out about thirty seconds later, leaving me to think.
I was doing a lot of thinking lately, and I didn’t like it.  Not at all.
I kept thinking about some of the things Bella has said about me and trying to wrap my head around them.  I didn’t want to just tell her she was wrong, but I was pretty sure all I had really wanted was sex, because jerking off sucks and I was tired of having to deal girlfriends who were expecting more from me.  I never wanted more.  I didn’t want to take women out to movies and dinner and shit like that.  There was no interest on my part to go tour a fucking museum or go watch some concert with a woman.  I didn’t have any desire to walk in the park or go dancing.
I ran my hand over Bella’s shoulder, and she sighed in her sleep.  I remembered dancing with her…well, if you could call what we were doing dancing.  I recalled how she felt in my arms, and wondered if I would take her somewhere where there was actual music to go with it.  Of course, I didn’t really know how to dance, but I might be willing to just hold her and sway around a bit again, even though I would look like an idiot in the process. 
Maybe if I just got some decent music in a hotel room, it would be good enough.
I sucked at this.
Emmett called, and I answered quickly and quietly so it wouldn’t wake up Bella.
“Harry said he’s never heard of the guy,” Emmett told me.  “Seth either.  We’re looking for the name, but so far we got nothing.  Probably not his real name at all.  Got a picture?”
“It was dark,” I told him, “but you might be able to get an image off the security cameras.”
“I’ll get Rose on it.”
“Thanks.”
“She wants to talk to you.”
“How is Bella?” Rosalie asked.
“Sleeping.”
“Not what is she doing, how is she doing, you idiot.”
“I don’t know,” I answered.  How was I supposed to answer that?
“Tell her to hang in there – she won’t have to put up with you much longer.  Let her know we’re close on the chip.  Maybe another week.”
“Okay.”  I hung up.
Another week.  Still four days past her birthday, but at least it was close.  Bella rolled slightly, and I had to keep hold of her so she didn’t fall off the bench all together.  She didn’t wake up, and I was glad.  She needed the rest.  I put my head back and closed my eyes for a minute.
One more week, and Bella could go back to her family and I could go back to my business.  As much as I wanted her to be with her family again, I hated the idea.   I didn’t want her to be nearly a whole freaking continent away from me.  I wondered what it would take to relocate to Seattle or something.  I started mentally listing all the crime businesses in the area, thought about some of the names and wondered who I would have to fuck up to make it happen.  The list in my head wasn’t bad, at least.  I’d have to do a little more research.
Research.
I pulled my phone back out, went to Google, typed in “being romantic” and hit the search key.
There was a freaking “wiki” on it.  When I was done reading it, I felt like I knew even less than I did before I looked.
I tried another one.
It didn’t help.
Frustrated, I tossed the phone on to the bench and closed my eyes again.  Everything seemed to be assuming you were in a real relationship, not that you had recently married your ex-master and were now hiding from unknown villains as you traipsed across Europe.
I picked the phone back up and Googled that, but nothing that came up made any sense at all.  One was about vampires in books, and another about Nazis.  Yeah, not working.  I sighed, wanted to just say fuck it and forget the whole thing, but then I looked down at the girl in my lap.  For once, I wanted to do something the right way.  I wanted to give her the wedding night she dreamed about, sex or not.  I wanted to make her feel wanted…cared for…lo-
No…fuck, no.  I couldn’t think like that.  It was far too fucking wrong.  Still, I wanted to do something for her.  At least get a decent hotel room and maybe some flowers and Champaign.  That seemed so trite though, and I didn’t want her to be disappointed because it was kind of boring romantic, either.  On the other hand, we’d had a little too much excitement lately.
Maybe boring was the way to go, right?
_________________________________________________
Chapter end notes:
Go ahead and google the whole sentence – “had recently married your ex-master and were now hiding from unknown villains as you traipsed across Europe”.  You know you want to.  You really will find shit about vampires and nazis.  At least, I did.
Next update – probably tomorrow.

  1. Yeah, I'm really head over fucking heels when it comes to Rightward? and he's not doing wrong in my book. Love him!

  2. There never is a dull moment with these two :-) I laughed when I read that he googled "being romantic".. not the first time I have seen a man do that.. LOL Apparently Doofusward is not alone. Can't wait for the next installment!! AV oxo

  3. I tried googling it and you're right. The first two hits were this story though, lol...

    So Lee was indeed not legit, as many suspected. Question is, is he from the crime world or some sort of law enforcement? I hope it's the former, because that would actually be less dangerous for Bella and Doofus, IMO.

    I can’t decide if Doofus reminds me more of the Edward in SB or H&D. Elements of both, definitely, though he's also unique in some ways. But his worry that Bella won’t need him anymore in a week reminds me very much of the last few chapters of SB.

    Lol at him googling the phrase 'being romantic'. Such a Doofus reaction. He doesn't realize that he just has to keep giving her more of those tender caresses and sweet kisses—not to mention just TALKING to her. In my book, that's more romantic than all the champagne and flowers in the world.

    Classic Doofus line for the day: “I was doing a lot of thinking lately, and I didn’t like it. Not at all.”

    Finally, I'm a little miffed that he's looking up crime world opportunities in Seattle to be closer to Bella. Hopefully Bella will set him straight on this issue (and he'll remember what he admitted to himself a few chapters ago—that he'd give it all up for her).

  4. Loved the chapter and cracked up that he was going to google being romantic - that is a guy thing I guess. I hope they get their chance at a proper honeymoon and that Edward will feel the difference of making love and just fucking. I hope they can figure out who this Lee guy is.

  5. Oh my lord, that is the weirdest thing I think I ever googled! I even got a result with a chracter named Emmet in it, LOL!

    Come on Doofusward, dig deep. Do something small and meaningful (even if it's cheap) and slow your roll between the sheets. After that, it's all good ;-)

  6. That was funny as hell that he would google how to be romantic, then the other google omg. That poor boy is so lost, she has him thinking though that's a good thing right? lol thanks Savage

  7. Oh my, he's so clueless it's kind of cute :) Googling "Marrying your ex-master"! LMFAO! Oh Edward, I just want to cuddle with him and hug him and tell him that everything will be alright.

    Kinda feel sorry for him though. He is lost! Dosent know exactly what he feels. He is a lot older than Bella but is still clueless! Stupid ass! LOL!

  12. See? I told you he loves her *sigh*....he's trying so hard. He's just never done this before, and just can't totally figure it out. It is a crazy situation for sure!

    I love all the cloak-and-daggers stuff, too. Figured Lee wasn't legit! Will we find out who he is later?

    kiss, kiss,
    Sus

  13. Wait shouldn't the phrase be ex-slave not master?

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's just placing the right words in the right order. But our dear guy isn't that good at doing things right ;) But he is trying and that means a lot, to us and to Bella. Going simple and romantic is a good idea, they need peace too. I do hope he figures it out.
    We are falling for him!!!! What about Bella?

    "I didn’t want to take women out to movies and dinner and shit like that. There was no interest on my part to go tour a fucking museum or go watch some concert with a woman. I didn’t have any desire to walk in the park or go dancing."

    He has never shared 'normal', with anyone. Because he does not know how. No one has taken the time to show him.

    Poor E! She will have to take hold of his child's hand and lead him to it. She will be the stronger one in this, his rock to all things, 'life'.

    One cannot breathe the air in Paris in the evening without thinking of making love to someone you love, slowly, repeatedly and for days. Only coming up for air and food. :)

    What is the surprise I wonder? Maybe she is more than thinking about it?

  31. Each chapter I love this character more and more...

    ReplyDelete
  32. They definitely need some boredom in their lives. I hope that Edward discovers what he is truly feeling for Bella.

    ReplyDelete
  33. i knew it! i knew there was something else to this guy Lee, he is probably one of those guy whom have military training or something along those lines, and he was hired by charlie to rescue Bella.


    i may be wrong.

    cant wait to find out. :)

  34. Cannot help but recall my fav train movie: Murder on the Orient Express. Exotic characters, mystery, murder.

    Moving to Seattle? Stalk much, Doofus?

    ReplyDelete
  35. it is amazing what you get when you google I was looking for a refrigerator one time and I ended up on a sight that was midget sex how does that work LOL. This is why Bella wants to be with Edward is because he is trying to fix it and doesnt know how but he is trying.

    ReplyDelete
  36. One week left until she goes home... but they have strange men following them so chip or no chip she is not safe. It's too soon for them to be apart because they don't know they are in-love with each other yet. He can't think that he can be a crime boss and still have Bella in his life especially with a Cop as a father. It seems like he doesn't believe he can be in her life... but if he can be closer to her at least he can be there if she ever needs him. He can't bare the thought of being separated from her even if she is not tecniquely with him anymore I guess. They have to have more than one week...

    I was surprised that he didn't know that he wanted someone who wouldn't leave. I thought he had realized that before... like a long time ago? Maybe he was thinking about Bella after getting to know her. I don't know. Anyways, great chapter. How will he ever let her go? Poor Eddie.

  37. Oh sweet Doofy, nothing could ever be boring w/ you, darlin'. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes. I had to google it. The first two hits are this story but then come the vampires and Nazis. LMAO!

    On the run. Edward is at his best. Lee Stephens needs to die with a puncture wound and Bella should pass out from the smell. ROTF!

    I hope it lets me post today. Fingers crossed.

  39. i got your story when i searched that sentence

  40. Edward+Hotel+Paris=DEFINITELY.NOT.BORING.

    Poor Thing has got some good instincts (when he really tries or maybe he's trying to hard), but he wouldn't know a rattlesnake if it bit him in the ass. He is in love with Bella, she was right about why he bought her, and he needs to quit trying to figure things out on his own. Right now, he can't even think straight b/c there is way too much going on. It's kind of funny that he bought her so he would be able to get off 24/7 no questions asked, but he's not been showing too much concern for that member of the group here lately (turned it down even). Interesting how he's changing and he doesn't even realize it.

    I'm still betting on FBI Human Trafficking Task Force for Lee. They would have gotten involved after talking to Renee and they were probably knew about Aro's dealings.

    ReplyDelete
  41. LOL He's such a giggle. :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Bella thinks that he chose to buy a slave, because he didn't want to be alone, and he thinks that it was just for sex and that he never wanted more. He obviously didn't care about his girlfriends, but maybe she is right and he wanted somebody to want to be with him, only he didn't know how to make this happen and he didn't care enough about anybody to work for it.
    I liked very much how in his confusion he types "being romantic" in google and hopes to find an easy answer. And then he googled "marriage ex-master hiding Europe" ?! :). He found something about Nazis - my guess is that he found the movie "The Night Porter".

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm late to the party. When I googled it i got vampires and nazis but first on the list was you. Lol. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm feeling really sorry for Edward and Bella. I really hope they have their HEA TOGETHER. I KNOW that's not realistic. At. All. But it's fiction right? I can dream.

  45. LMFAO! I did Google that shit but didn't find anything about nazis or vampires .... just chapter 64 of CBWR? Lol. Oh, and an ebook by Cynthia Lennon called John, which I started reading and now an hour's gone by so I had to save it and come back to post this comment.

    I wonder where they're going to end up and whether Edward will finally give Bella the wedding night she deserves. They may have shaken off their tail, but no doubt there will be more - someone found them once, they can do it again.

    If Edward is serious about being able to see Bella again once she goes home he's probably going to have to give some thought to retiring from the arms business and pursuing his more legitimate work. But before he can even contemplate that, he needs to make sure there will be no more come-backs from Aro's associates, or whoever it is that's been following him. I still don't think it's anything to do with Charlie - I'm really convinced he's dead or out of the picture, so it has to be someone much more dangerous.

  46. Thank god they didn't go to Switzerland, I swear the only thing you can do there is go skiing. It was so cute that he googled how to be romantic. One Scooby snack coming right up.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Damn, I actually googled it. I tried to resist but I just couldn't!

    I'm getting more suspicious of Lee and who he really is or could be. Didn't Aro have a silent partner? Maybe he doesn't want revenge, just money and business.

    Boring romantic can be good. I think Edward's google searches should focus on slow sex...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Googled that and it lead me to your story, which is not bad, at all when you think about it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Edward’s blindly trying to block his feelings for Bella, just to keep from hurting. He keeps thinking that he didn’t want anything but sex, so he can stop himself from realizing that he’s found love instead. That’s why he’s thinking that, on her special wedding night, he wants Bella to feel loved. When will he find the guts to admit it to himself and to her? He’s making plans to move his business nearer to her, because he knows he won’t be able to do without her, for God’s sake!

    ReplyDelete
  50. funny how he says he's been doing a lot of thinking and doesn't like it - poor e. wondering if the people who are following them are criminals or police.
