So at 2 am last night I decided to follow some of that magnificent advice you gave me on the days prior, and went to bed. And so I closed my tabs which included this page with my mumblings of a half read chapter 20 on them, I think. *sigh*
And so we must read again. *grin*
“There’s no reason for you to be,” I explained. I closed my eyes for a moment and inhaled deeply. “Ten points for scent, though. I think you definitely win.”
Ouch, baby... *hug*
“Are you trying to distract me so you can fondle my boobs?” Bella retorted, giggling.
“I…ah…” I stammered, realizing that act wasn’t too far from my mind. I shrugged my shoulders. “Maybe.”
Isn't he just the sweetest thing, when he's not feeding on her or trying to eat other people?
“Yes,” Bella said. “He tried. He said he physically couldn’t force you to the boat. He said you wouldn’t let go of the sand, which didn’t make any sense to me, but he refused to elaborate. You fought him for hours, but he couldn’t make you leave. He stayed with you for days, but you wouldn’t even acknowledge him.”
“I didn’t know he was there,” I shrugged, not sure what else I could really say. I didn’t want to elaborate either.
Hmm, to tell Bella of Sand Bella yes or no... At least he was holding her hand, and not her chest... If he had a few more blood drops left in his system, perhaps he would have thought of adding that. Haha at Carlisle not saying anything of that either.
“I forgive you,” Bella whispered.
Question is: is he ever going to forgive himself? I don't know if she means for all of it, or just for the kidnapping her part. I do hope he'll eventually, when all is good between them, he can forgive himself a bit for kidnapping her. Perhaps when she's his mate in full. After a transformation? We don't know yet if that's going to be part of the story. In fact, your characters seem to live very much in the 'now' part, not in the future. Will it be brought up soon? Will there be an accident after which they'll have to either burn Bella, or let her die? Will she want to be part of the family, risking turning into a murderer, as well?
Are you all right?”
“What are you talking about?” Bella asked, glancing at the clock. “You haven’t been gone five minutes. What do you think might have happened to me?”
“Burglars,” I said. “Or you could fall. Or a bear could come in.”
“Are you serious?”
“I think so,” I said, a little unsure.
Don't you just *love* the boy? He's practically going all 'geesh' on himself, at the ending...
Once we were done and had it all delivered to the cabin, Bella found a home for everything while I tried to simultaneously stay out of her way and keep at least one hand on her at all times.
Aaaaaaaaaaaah, how cute. Oh geez... :P
I moved my hand over to her right breast and did the same.
Of course you did, Edward, we weren't expecting anything else. I wonder if he would *ever* leave the cabin with them being touched uneven?
“I’m your present, Edward.” Bella’s voice was husky and dark. “I want to give you me. All of me.”
Sound waves crept through my ear canal and invaded my inner ear, which heard her words and sent them into my temporal lobe. The temporal lobe recognized the words as English and figured out the general structure of the sentence before sending it along to my frontal lobe for interpretation. Etc.
This sequence, LOVED it! Oh wow, now that I think of it, it's kind of CSI-ish, right? It surprises me that Edward doesn't run away in shock. :P
Hmm, boo boos:
I think I’d find away to kill myself before I hurt you again. = a way
“You’re eyes are still…dark.” = Your
“Edwards that was…amazing.” = she gets two? Grr. :P Edwards = Edward,
Bella made her herself breakfast = just made herself?
Yay! I'm finally, finally done with chapter 20! Chapter 21, here I come! :nana:
There is NO WAY he would ever leave without making them even!!! I can't beleive you would suggest such a thing! :)
