CBWR? Chapter 78

Author's notes:
Just a quick one - hope to have more out tomorrow!  I barely looked over this one after finishing it, so sorry about any typos.


“So tell me my man, are you nervous in the service?”

________________________________

Chapter 78:
I was pretty sure my heart was trying to leap right out of my chest, it was pounding so hard.
We were heading back to the hotel after our lovely birthday dinner date and Eiffel Tower tour – husband and wife, ex master and slave, human buyer and kidnap victim – for me to take her virginity.  If there was ever a more fucked up situation in history, I would have liked to know about it, just for the sake of comparison.
I wanted a cigarette really, really badly, but I hadn’t had one all day.
The sliding doors to the hotel lobby opened, and one of the hotel staff greeted us with a big smile and a big bonsoir.  Bella gave him a smile and a blushing hello, and then reached out for my hand and slipped her fingers into the spaces between mine.  She swung our hands together lightly as we headed for the elevator.
I tried to remember how to breathe.
I’d never held hands like this before.   Whenever I had held hands with women in the past, it was to take them and lead them somewhere – pull them along so they would go faster or just go the right way.  I’d never had my fingers interlaced with someone else’s before, and I really wasn’t sure what to make of it.  I didn’t understand why there was this tingling sensation running up my arm.  Once it got to my shoulder, it buried itself inside my gut and seemed to be trying to shove itself out of my body like something out of an alien horror flick.
I looked down to where our hands were joined, and looked and how perfectly they seemed to fit together, even though my hands were so much bigger than hers.  The tip of the diamond in her wedding ring grazed against the edge of my finger, and Bella’s fingers clenched a little, holding my hand tighter.  When our swinging hands reached the lowest point of the arc, the sleeves of my jacket – which Bella was wearing – covered most of her hand and mine.  She kept us connected that way all the way to the room.
As soon as the door closed, she tossed my jacket over the back of a chair, grabbed a hold of my tie, and pulled me close to her.  Her tongue traced over her bottom lip once as she looked at my mouth, then kissed me.  I took a step closer and ran my hands up her arms and into her hair, holding her face to me as I pressed against her mouth, my tongue meeting up with hers gently.
Gently.
I had to be gentle, because my wife of two months was a virgin, and I had no idea how to fuck a virgin.
No…I’m not going to fuck her.
I’m going to make love to her.
Strangely enough, the idea didn’t seem all that odd to me.  If fact, when I opened my eyes and watched her pull her dress up and over her hips, then over her head and off, it didn’t seem odd to me at all.  Even with her standing there in nothing but a little white bra and panty set, all I could manage to think about was making sure I didn’t go too fast, and that I stopped if she changed her mind, and that I made sure she came first.
In more ways than one.
The idea of making love wasn’t alarming me at all, like I might have thought, but I was so fucking nervous, anyone watching would have thought I was the virgin.  I didn’t want to hurt her, and I wanted her to like it, and I wanted her to like me.  I was seriously afraid of fucking it all up.  The obnoxious, high-pitched voice of Ruby Rhod from The Fifth Element  popped into my head.
“So tell me my man, are you nervous in the service?”
I wished I was Bruce Willis.
Gentle.
Slow.
She would tell me if I did something wrong, wouldn’t she?
“Bella?”
“Hmmm…?”
“If I…um…if I do something and you don’t like it, you’ll tell me, right?”
Bella’s hand went to the side of my face, and her eyes locked with mine.  Her lips touched mine briefly before she pulled back and smiled.
“I promise,” she said.
I nodded and let out a sigh before leaning down and kissing slowly across her left shoulder.  Bella shivered a little, and I moved over to her right shoulder.  I kept my eyes closed, because the sigh of her skin was driving me insane, even in the dim lights in the room.  My hands rested lightly on her hips.
Bella pulled the knot of my tie apart, unraveled it from my neck and dropped it on the floor next to her dress.  Her fingers made quick work of my shirt buttons, and it joined the pile on the floor as well.  Her hands reached up and tangled in my hair as she pulled me back down to kiss her again.  Tentatively, I ran one hand up her back, my fingers trailing along the edge of the back-strap of her bra.  I found the clasp, and flicked it open.  Bella let go of my head long enough to let the straps slide off of her shoulders.  I touched her hair, splaying it out over her bare shoulders, as I tried to hold in the pressure that seemed to be building inside of me.
Placing my hands on the wall behind her, I leaned in to kiss her again.
I felt Bella’s fingers open up the front of my dress slacks and push them over my hips.  I stepped out of them, kicking off my shoes in the process.  I looked at her eyes once more, then leaned in to take her mouth with mine as her hands slipped around my waist and dipped into the hem of my boxers.
It was now or never, right?

  26. You would never know now that our Edward here had no idea of romance until...well like a day ago. He is doing so great. And did you notice that Bella initiated the kiss??? I loved the manip. I think it is my favorite too. As soon as I saw it my first thought was "that has to be a manip because, as much as I love Rob, there is no way he look's that good". lol!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You freakin' quoted Fifth Element...*high five* ILY!

    ReplyDelete
  28. So he gave her his jacket... that's taking care of her Eddie. I love how your mind works... the things you come up with and include in your stories... in this story, Edward coming to life... his emotional side - holding hands and contemplating what that means. So existential of him. And the fifth element reference. I don't remember their names or any lines from the movie but I do remember I liked the movie and I love Bruce Willis. I can't imagine what made you think of that old movie. Pretty a-propo I would say.

    I was worried that someone would be waiting for them when they returned to their room. I am still holding my breath that all will be well for the rest of the night. I hope he has a couple of candles to lite so Bella can see the Red Roses... his heart layed out for her. I is ready to make love to her because he knows he loves her. Awe.

    ReplyDelete
  29. OMG...this is already so hawt! And you're gonna make us wait? You are SO MEAN!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Will it take 25 chapters to get to the part when they finally have sex? Please say no! Don't be that evil!

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG that manip is gorgeous—Lolypop82 is very good!


    We are finally getting somewhere (and just so you know, personally I won't be complaining if it takes ten chapters or something—the more the merrier!). And LOL, I LOVE Fifth Element, especially Ruby's incredible ear-shattering dual-note scream...

    ReplyDelete
  32. It IS a fantastic manip: kudos lolypop... and so perfect for the moment... he is poised... close but not pushing.. allowing her to get acquainted with him and gathering his wits about him no doubt. I especially like the body language between them... and yet I can sense as much as he wants this he will feel the weight of the nerves... afterall...this is a sort of farewell as these final days ebb away.


    Bella has wisely decided how she wants this to end on HER terms, and once the chip has been reset, it will be exit stage left for Edward and exit stage right for Bella. Autonomy is powerful, but only if your head can rule your heart with an iron fist. Or in the case of Doofy, discover that he had a heart and it is too late because it now resides in the girl he is about to lose.


    Love this moment sooo much! Go tell it on the mountain, he is quacking in his lil gangster boots! Yeah, Bella has got game.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hot manip! Edward is a gentleman after all...who would have thought? lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bzz-zzz-zzz-ZZZ-ZZZ-ZZZ!!! That is what this Ruby Rhod thinks about getting cockblocked YET AGAIN!! Lol. Don't worry. I ain't mad atcha... Damn I loved that freakin movie. I love all of BW's movies. So tomorrow are we getting the whole entire lemon? Or are you gonna be super evil and cut it off at penetration. You are aren't you... I think I know your game now... LOL

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well it seems Bella is taking the lead here. A very good idea considering how nervous Edward is. I am sure it will go wonderfully.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is an awesome manip pic, very hot, your writing tied it in perfectly;D)
    I'm so looking forward to hump day... did you plan that out? *~*
    Good planning, I'm rooting for more than getting naked tomorrow, btw. in case you wondered.

    ReplyDelete
  37. really??? just decide to stop there . to cockblock us all ...... not very nice of you .
    love the manip

    ReplyDelete
  38. When I read the introductory line, I had to laugh. Thanks for quoting one of my favorite movie characters -
    Ruby Rhod rocks.That Edward asked her to tell him if he did something she doesn't like, makes him all the more caring and enables her to relax, because she is the one that holds the power. One huge Scooby snack coming right up, Doofus. And the answer is: it is now :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nooo, you did not just stop there. such a tease... He has really fallen for her.

    ReplyDelete
  40. talk about edward going gently and slowly...you are absolutely killing us ever so slowly. Oh the agony.

    ReplyDelete
  41. cockblocker.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love that Edward is thinking about everything, which is going on between him and Bella and is trying to make sense of his feelings and wishes, even about the little things as holding hands. He is thinking about what he wants for him and for Bella on their wedding night and what he has to do about it. He has been doing a lot of thinking lately about the things, which are happening and of his past. Suddenly there are so many questions, which he wants to know the answers to. He tries to do his best, he hasn't even smoked all day, though he is very nervous. "I want to be like Bruce Willis" - I love this line. The photo manip is awesome!
