I asked those on Twitter to tell me if they wanted an evil or a kind teaser. Cosmogirl said it was Christmas - so evil is out. Sarabera's vote for naughty turned it into a naughty or nice teaser, and I KNOW you guys want the naughty one. So here you go!
“You’re beautiful,” Edward said. He chuckled softly and pulled my hair away from my neck with one hand. His mouth made a line across my skin. “I don’t recall seeing this dress before, but it suits you perfectly.”
His words swirled around in my head. I knew my fear had kept him from taking me the previous night, and I knew lying to the man he considered both king and father regarding the consummation our marriage had to have been very difficult for him, as it would be for anyone. Undoubtedly, he had reconsidered waiting until I came to him, which was likely to take far too long for his tastes.
Esme said I needed to learn how to be…what was her word? Assertive? I wasn’t really sure what that meant, but I had a decent idea it meant saying what I wanted to say, when I wanted to say it. I didn’t know if Edward was going to appreciate such a thing in his wife, though, so I would have to be assertive quietly. If it was all right with him.
“Are you going to take me tonight?” I tried to keep my voice from trembling, but I couldn’t keep all of my anxiousness hidden. The movements of his mouth against my throat stopped and he leaned back.
“According to my mother, you have had a trying day,” Edward said with a sigh. He took a step back and dropped his hands from me. “I think she is probably right, and though I would like nothing better than to punish you for making me look weak in front of the carriage driver and practically denouncing me in front of Carlisle, I think taking your virginity while I’m still quite angry with you is not advisable.”
The next chapter should post Friday!
