Happy Saturday everyone! Chapter 38, which will be the last full chapter of UC, is nearly done. I just have a bit more to finish up before I send if off to beta later today. The lovely DK is out of town, though, so please be patient and give her a while to get it done. In the meantime, here's a teaser for you!
“Now that you mention it,” I said as I pecked at her lips again, “there is something I have been meaning to do for quite some time now.”
“What is that?” Isabella asked.
I did not answer her, but quickly found Samantha to watch over Little Edward as I took my wife’s hand and led her down the back staircase to the Great Hall. I checked around the room quickly, but as I suspected, it was completely empty at this time of night. Still, I would not wish to be interrupted, so I instructed Isabella to stay where she was as I went to the doors and informed the guards that no one was to enter, for any reason.
Returning to my wife’s side quickly, I reached for her hands and brought our bodies close together. I could see the slight confusion in her eyes as our bodies touched, but she still melted against me as I took her face in my hands and kissed her deeply. My hands found their favorite places – her arms, her shoulders, her breasts – and then came back up to cup her jaw once more. My thumbs brushed over her cheekbones as I finally broke our kiss and dropped my hands to lace together with her fingers.
Isabella licked her lips as we parted, and I gave her a half smile and a raise of my eyebrow. Her cheeks tinged red as her eyes dropped down to the ground, and her fingers tightened around mine. Before she had a chance to say anything I turned around, still holding on to Isabella's hand, and sat down on the throne of Forks. I raised my eyebrows at her again and gave her a big smile as I pulled her to stand between my knees.
“I told you I would take you here one day.”
And some of you thought I was going to forget... ;)
BTW - I'm on facebook now! Come say howdy!
