CBWR? Chapter 76

Author’s notes:
Here’s a bit more for ya.
Or was that just me?
___________________________________
Chapter 76:
“I need to make an appointment for my wife,” I told the obviously flaming gay guy at the front desk of the hotel’s salon.
“Of course, sir,” he responded.  “I can work her in tomorrow afternoon…”
“Not tomorrow,” I said.  “Today.  Now, actually.”
He laughed a cute little effeminate laugh, which I wanted to punch right down his throat.  With a two-by-four.
“I’m terribly sorry, sir,” he said.  “But we are completely booked up for the day.  Perhaps-”
“Look,” I said as I waved my hand in front of my face.  “I honestly don’t give a shit what else you have going on here today.  I want my wife totally and completely pampered by whoever your best is, and I want it arranged by the time I get to my room and back.”
“It’s just not possible…”
His voice trailed off as I pulled out my wallet and started laying bills in front of him.  I stopped at five thousand Euros, figuring there was no way he was going to turn down that kind of load, and I didn’t want to leave any room for argument.
“That’s the first half,” I told him as his eyes tried to bug right out of his head and do a little ballroom dancing on the counter.  “Once she’s done, you’ll get the other half.”
“This…this will be…fine… sir,” he stammered.  “We’ll be ready for her in five minutes.”
“Good man,” I said with a smile. 
One more part of this little plan was set in motion. 
When I woke Bella up this morning, I had croissants and coffee ready for her on a little tray, along with a single red rose in a vase.  I was about as fucking nervous as I could be, just knowing that something so small couldn’t possibly be special enough, but Bella’s eyes went wide, and she reached out for me.  I was just about hugged to death before she actually let me go and tried out her breakfast.  Part two was the pampering at the salon, followed by dinner.  Kate had just said “spa day and take her out of the town,” so I figured that meant dinner and sightseeing.
I told Bella I was taking her out for dinner, and she got a big smile on her face.  She went to the dresser drawer and pulled out the white box that had been delivered to our first hotel in Paris – the one she had been carrying with her all this time, but wouldn’t tell me what was in it.  She opened it, and pulled out tow dresses – one black, one red.  The both looked really, really tiny.
“Which color do you like?” she asked.
“Red.”  Like there was really any guesswork there.
I love the fact that money can get me most any kind of service I want.  Maybe that’s part of the reason I’ve fucked up my relationships, but I didn’t want to deal with that right now.  I got Bella set up in the salon, got someone else at the front desk to get me a suit with a tie the same color a Bella’s dress, and had the hotel’s florist shred the petals off a couple of hundred red roses and deliver them to the room.  Everything was done within view of the salon door, so I could keep track of her as well – until we got to the rose petals.  It was the only time I was actually far enough away from the door to get a little nervous.  I had a freaking huge basket of petals in my arms, and now that I was staring at the freshly cleaned room, I wasn’t sure exactly what to do with them.
I took a deep breath and carried the basket over to the bed.  At first, I just kind of threw the around the bed, figuring I’d go with the BINGO cover-all approach.  I made a trail from the door to the bed, and then looked over everything.  It just looked like a big fucking truckload of flowers had exploded in the room, if you asked me.  I shook my head, trying to figure out what I could do to make it look like less of a…well, less of a mess.
Or was that just me?
I finally went back to the bed and gathered all the petals I could into the center, cursing my general lack of artistic skills.  I spread them out again, making a huge, red, rose-petal heart in the middle of the bed.
Girls liked that kind of shit, right?

Chapter end notes:
He’s trying, right?
What do you think – BINGO coverall, or heart shape?  I’m with Edward on this one – sounds like a big-ass mess to me.
Next update – maybe tonight.  We’ll see.

  1. He is just so CUTE...for such a bad guy...but a bad guy who is TRYING...he gets so many points for that.

    I kind of like the overall thing...but a THIN overall thing...

  2. Personally i would be more for the bingo cover all method but then I like things kinda messy :)))

    He's trying so hard it's too cute for words :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. This story reminds me so much of Pretty Woman. In a good way...

    ReplyDelete
  4. I kind of like the heart, but I still would sprinkle some around on the floor. Just please don't let her disappear again while out of his sight. I don't think he can handle another scare like that.

    ReplyDelete
  5. HAHAHA LMAO at the "big-ass mess"! Edward deserves a big fat AWWWW for his attempts at romance. Wanna give him a big hug! :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Sticking to the basics. Good idea, Edward! Or, rather, Kate. So far, so good. The heart is definitely in keeping with his fairly clueless attempts at romance...and I'msure there are plenty sprinkled around, just based on how messy I think he probably is.

    ReplyDelete
  7. He's just the cutest thing ever.

    And if edward was there I wouldn't care what the petals were shaped like!
    Love it as always!

  8. Definitely a huge ass AWWWWWWW for his efforts! Me thinks the" heart shaped mess" will TOTALLY do the trick. If no other reason that Bella will recognize the total effort he made in doing these special things for her - so TOTALLY out of his "comfort zone".

    ReplyDelete
  9. Poor man! He really is trying to make things right.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Spa day? Nice. I think the heart shape is the winner. He is finally making Bella happy, even if the idea came from Kate. Go Edward!

    ReplyDelete
  11. He is trying so hard....I think he is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Aww, so sweet with the rose heart. Hey he came up with at least that on his own.

    ReplyDelete
  13. OMG. I love the way he tries. ;) And yeah, it does sound like a big ass mess, but I think Bella will appreciate it, regardless. I know I would... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Awwwww I love that he made such an effort for her. I'd go with the heart. She's twelve, she'll love it:)

    ReplyDelete
  15. He is adorable in his cluelessness.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Doofy is sooooo in luuurrrrve. Its heartwarming to see, esp in contrast to the prick he was when he was w/ Kate. Actually, I gotta say, if an ex bf (who did the things E did to her) asked for my romantic advice, I prolly would have told him to surprise his girl w/ a nice buzz cut in her sleep and cockroach pancakes in bed, "cos girls like that shit." I'm evil like that. And obviously Kate's a better a woman than I. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Cute when he's nervous trying to please his girl.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Good job Eddie!
    Praying for no cock-blocking.... Praying for no cock-blocking....

    ReplyDelete
  19. He is totally trying and its almost SWEET lol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Methinks at the end of the night it will look just like it did before he made the heart. I'm hoping that a crazy load of foreplay and some good lovin will cause a rose petal explosion of epic proportions. I want to be the maid that gets to spend two weeks picking rose petals from every conceivable location in the room, and the not-so-conceivable locations as well! God what kinds of fantasies I could play out with those things... Maybe some left behind DNA could lead to my very own Edward clone. I would call him Dolly and brush his hair every day.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm with Doofy on the rose petals but Bella seems like a girl that would enjoy that type of shit. And just that he went through the time and effort says so much!

    Thanks for the chapter, hope that you have a great Monday.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Edward's thoughts while struggling with the petals cracked me up! Maybe the heart shape is better, he can make it even without artistic skills. This was his own idea - he gets better and better :).

    ReplyDelete
  23. Some nice touches there Edward... the trail of roses leading to their bed and the big red heart is lovely. The day at the spa is special too. She is from Forks so this might be a first for that as well. Red dress (not blue) so that means a Red suit for Eddie? Oh no not red! They will stand out... draw attention to themselves. I am going to worry the whole time they are sightseeing - in jeans, low key I hope and the red clothes for dinner only I hope and hopefullily a private dining-room somewhere
    special.
    I really hate that you made a point of saying that Bella is only out of his sight while he is messing with the roses... trying to be all romantic for her. Oh no I am so worried. Please make Bella okay and not missing? Please don't do anything to them until after their special day? Please?

  24. he so sweet loved it

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh Doofusward ... you're turning into quite the adorkable slave purchaser...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like that he's kind of taking the initiative with the flowers and the tie matching. It's the little things that make it special.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gotta go w/ you Shay, sounds like a big-ass mess to me. At least he's doing it in the name of romance.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Geez he's trying to hard it's almost painful. thanks Savage

    ReplyDelete
  29. This line made me LOL. "It just looked like a big fucking truckload of flowers had exploded in the room, if you asked me" I agree what a mess. I do like the heart better than coverall. Heart makes it seem like he took the time to think about it and made the effort. Edward is making the right steps just they are baby steps.
    Mwah

  30. Naw, we can say is lame or not original, but the reality is, if the man we love or Edward, especially Edward, we would love it.


    So , no, i think Bella will be please with the his efforts.


    somehow, that matters more.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Our boy is on a roll here!!! He had me with coverall, but with heart I am melting. And Kate only told him in general terms...he is the one that is making it special, maybe inadvertently, yes, but he is still doing it. And no, he does not "get" the romance...yet...but if she can feel it and it is perfect, I think he will "get it" when he sees it reflected in her eyes. I am melting I tell you! I have high hopes for our Doofusward!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Edward trying his best for his girl / wife. kinda like the idea of petals all over the bed - romantic . can wait to read what bella's reaction going to be to all his effort.

  33. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww .. soooo cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    i love himmmmmm .. can i have him instead of Bella plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    so cute

    i need the rest plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    ReplyDelete
  34. Awwww so sweet :) I'm glad Kate gave him a good advice after all. He's so clueless about anything feelings it's sad. But we all know that already :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Most all the movies/pics etc.. that you see, the petals are just everywhere. I like the petal scooped into a heart shape on the bed. It's at least a bit different. Spa day is good. Figured flowers and dinner.. did'nt think about spa day... good one...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was thinking he could spell 'BINGO' on the bed.....

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOL, I was laughing SO hard at Doofus and the rose petals... I know Bella will dig the heart shape. Sounds like Kate gave him some nice advice. Let's just hope he can get through dinner without messing up...

    ReplyDelete
  38. With the petals he may have gone a little overboard. But all in all I think Kate gave him some good advice - keep it simple and about her. I'm curious if what Bella thinks of her spa day, alas we will never really know. But I hope she has a good time at dinner and strolling through the Paris night.

    ReplyDelete
  39. your maybes drive me crazy, this is the 8th time I've checked your blog in the last hour!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The heart on the bed is best. Honestly, no petals on the bed is preferable. They seem all romantic and sexy in theory until you've got them stuck everywhere on your naked body. Then trying to chase them all down and clean them up the next day sucks. There are lots of things like that that are sexy and romantic in theory that look far better in the movies. Like sex tumbling around on the beach in the surf. It's all fun and games until you've got sand all up in your hoo-ha and every other nook and cranny of your body.

    ReplyDelete
  41. So glad to see that doofward is pulling it together. I have to say I had little faith when he reached out to Kate for help. But so far, so good!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Petals? Edward is there. Petal formation would be furthest from my mind. But... any effort would be appreciated.. and I'm with Athena.. sand ... everywhere.. it's all I could think of when reading the fade to black honeymoon of BD...

    ReplyDelete
  43. if i was bella i would have wanted the petals to be a mess. Because he is a mess, a HOT mess. Because their relationship is a mess. Because mess means that he is not perfect (and nobody is).


    Maybe trying to be perfect wont do him any good. Maybe he just has to focus on the reason he is trying to perfect for this girl and the way to become perfect.


    Am I even making sense...???? *blush*


    But, please update as soon as possible because i m not bella and i want to see her reaction and i want to see what happens AFTER dinner......

    ReplyDelete
  44. omg that is so sweet...i like the heart too :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. he is getting really sweet!!! i know he had help but he still has to excute the plan!!! i think the heart is best.. but yeah a big mess is more like it!! can't wait for more!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. i never got the rose petal thing, but she's young so...

    way to go Kate! i was kinda worried that she might have fun at his expense.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Awe! This is kinda like "Pretty Woman"... In a good way. It doesn't have the hooker thing going on but it does have the sweet girl saves poor lost guy thing. It also shows that money can't buy everything. But it can help buy fresh roses and a spa day, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah, there's an artful talent to the festooninig with petals thing, so I'm with E on this one too. Poor guy doesn't realize that all men go through this, just usually in their early to mid teens! lol


    Somehow I don't think Bella would approve of bumping all those people to put her in, but he's a work in progress, right? ;D Dude would really be up S creek if he wasn't loaded, too. *shakes head and laughs* Nice semi-canon touches... kinda canon twisted and it's FUN! :D lol


    Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. He's trying so hard. snif. snif. It's gotta work out, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Awwwww Sweet....... Loving Doofusward more every time!! =) - @MoniNP

    ReplyDelete
  51. you know! you've got company. Somtimes I find myself doing the same thing!

    ReplyDelete
  52. He is so cute! Any girl would love that kind of efort from her man.
    The petals will be messy, but he hotel staff will clean so that's ok.

    ReplyDelete
  53. OMG - he is SO cute! Trying to get this right. And did anyone notice that he NEVER DENIED being in Love!

    Oh Doofus .. he is trying SO hard...he is slowly waking up and it is lovely. Let their night be doofus mistake free... please ?

    ReplyDelete
  55. This was so sweet he is trying so hard to make things perfect! Do you accept bribes to let this go off without a hitch? Or without a Lee? LOL Love this I can't wait for the next update.

    ReplyDelete
  56. He is sweetest thing ever, just that he is trying to make it perfect , makes it prefect for Bella I hope

    ReplyDelete
  57. Omg! Heart shaped! I also Dont get the whole rose petal thing. Roses need petals on them. Not on the bed!
    Wow, 7k for spa day? Better come w a happy ending. BIG happy ending!

    ReplyDelete
  58. A truckload of petals sound like an ton of petals. Maybe a ''less is more'' approach would have been better but WTH do I know? I would have just preferred a trail of Edward's clothes leading to the bed with a naked Edward in it! What can I say, I am a romantic? ROTFLMAO!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love it when he calls her his wife and he actually seems ok w/it, too. Plus, he's actually doing a nice job w/minimal guidance. Knowing you, I'm a bit worried about their night on the town because anything could happen...right? This is so good.

    ReplyDelete
  60. OMG...I would love to see what he did. He's trying so hard! Thank gawd Kate pointed him in the right direction, instead of trying to screw things up for him! He is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  61. hahahaha. oh it's cute to see him try so hard.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I say he should have kept those petals on the flowers myself!!!! Oh well. He's too cute.

    But, didn't the box get lost in the train station fiasco?.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Yes, girls do;D)

    ReplyDelete
  64. he's trying hard. i thought b lost the white box when they were train jumping

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yeah baby, definitely the heart shape, not the big cover all mess! LOL

    It's so endearing how much he's trying...is this the same man who bought her
    like a sex object? Hard to believe...ain't love just wonderful?

    ReplyDelete
  66. aww sweet edward really is trying and the heart thing with the rose petals..sooooo cute and certainly romantic! good for you edward.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Cripes, Doofus could teach my husband a thing or two. He just has to follow through now - you know Savage, if he keeps this up, we will need to rename him!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. We have to give it to him and Kate!!! It seems he is getting it more than right :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Made me smile. Cute... yeah at least he's trying.

    ReplyDelete
  70. AWWW HEART in the middle of the bed...he is too cute and so clueless I actually started to tear up like a dumbass.

    ReplyDelete
  71. He's definitely starting right. Some of it is a bit cliche, but it still works. Bella will most appreciate the things he does for her and seeing Paris by twilight. She'll really love that!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hope she likes roses. Not my favorite.  

    ReplyDelete
  73.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.................he must be really friggin messed up in da head. These shit are nevr fun for a guy Eddie so its not at all suprisin dat u, of all ppl wud mess it up!!!! U wud evn do a more horrible job than d average man!!!!!! But u get 2 thumbs up for ur enormously large efforts...........I'm sooooooo fallin in love wit this guy. Its almost, ALMOST as if DoucheWard nevr existed. Ok, i lied....how cud u forget sum1 like dat. But i mean, the effort he's puttin into makin evryting SOOOOOO Right, SOOOOOOO Precious, SOOOOO close to Perfect as it can get is AMAZING. Knowing Edward, sumting must go wrong sumwhere but I soooooooo dont care anymore!!!!! Evry1's entitled to their share of mistakes but he's made soooooo many already, mayb evn enuff for his own life n a few othrs, hahahaaaa.

    Hope Bells sees that he's really tryin tho!!!! Wonder if she'll find out that these plans were in no way his idea?!?!? I hope she cud appreciate that he's a CLUELESS FCUK n had NO1 else 2 turn to for help......or wil she b da jealous type?!?!? WAWWWW, i am soooo invaded & captivated by the posssibilities here!!!!On to find out!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Awwww Edward, don't go with the heart. 

    ReplyDelete
  75. A rose petal heart on the bed, AWWWWWWWW!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Awww I don't think it matters!! She's 19 and a virgin. I doubt she's had too much romance. And then the shit she's been through... Anything will make her happy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Ooh I love the Bingo approach lol x Edward don't you know that Money can't buy you love!!! Wait...i've heard that before haven't I?
