Bound and United Chapter 19

“Charlie?”  Edward questioned.

“Charlie Swan.”  Bella whimpered.  Why the fuck was Charlie here, now?

“Fuck.”  Edward said.

They watched and listened to Jasper try to get as much information out of Charlie, while he kept filling him with Jack Daniels.

“So, Jack, haha, that is funny.”  Charlie laughed.  “When is my whore of a daughter going to get here?”

“Oh, shit, I forgot to send a text, hold on, man.”  Jasper said, pulling out his phone to send a message to Edward.

Do you want me take him out?-J

No; find out how he knew Bella was with me.  Then drug his ass.  I will get Alec here to bug his phone.-E


Charlie was swaying back and forth.  Damn, that was the best damn Jack Daniels he had ever had.  When the bottle was empty, the Jack went over, and grabbed another bottle.  Fuck, he was good guy.


“Charlie, I texted her, and I am waiting for a response.  Fuck, as loud as it is out there, it might take a bit.”  Jasper chuckled.  “Good damn thing we have plenty of Jack.”

“Damn right.”

After pouring another glass, Jasper leaned back, and looked at Charlie.  “Where are you from?”

“Haha, I am the Police Chief in a bumfuck town about three hours from here.”

“Chief? That is great. Got yourself a woman?”  Jasper asked.

“Love of my life left me years ago, because of that whore of a daughter of mine.”  Charlie grumbled.  “But, lately, I’ve had the pleasure to hit some sweet young pussy.  She is all over my dick, got this one addicted to it.”


“Yeah, fuck, she is the reason I knew where my whore daughter was, and who she is with right now.”  Charlie chuckled.

“Wow.  What is her name?  Does she have a sister?”


“Jessica Stanley; I don’t think she has a sister.”  Charlie slurred.  The massive amount of Jack Daniels was taking its effect.  “I will have to go home soon; got to feed the pussy.”

Edward and Bella heard the entire conversation, and when Charlie said he had found out about Bella from Jessica, it made complete sense.  Fuck.  Bella had called Alec, and told him what was going on; they needed a phone tapped with all the bells and whistles.

“I can’t believe Charlie blames me for Renee leaving.”  Bella said.

Edward wrapped his arm around her, and pulled her close.  “Baby, I hate to say this, but both of them were not right in the head.  Charlie thought Renee was the love of his life, while Renee only used him to hide her pregnancy.  You heard your grandfather tell you that Renee’s dying words were her professing her love for Aro.”

“I know.”  Bella whispered.

Carlisle came to the other side, and wrapped his arm around her.  “Fuck him.  You are my little girl, and always will be.”


Bella pulled from their embrace, and wrapped her arms around Carlisle.  “Thank you, Daddy.”  She cried.

Placing a kiss to the top of her head, he squeezed her tight.  “I love you, sweetie.”

They released their hold on each other, and turned back to screen.

“So, Charlie, what do you know about Bella’s friend?”

“The fucker is good.  Jessica said he was part of the Cullen crime family, but I have spent hundreds of hours, and couldn’t find one thing illegal they do.  Fuck, take this building for example.”  Charlie said, pointing around the room.  “Every fucking permit was legit.”

“Where are you staying while in town?”  Jasper asked.

“Oh, I’m with the son of one of my buddies from back home.  Good kid, but dumb as a fucking box of rocks.  He tried to intercept a shipment of guns last night, but the only thing they intercepted was a container of shit.  Stunk up the whole apartment.”

Jasper laughed, and, as Charlie was leaning back with his eyes closed, he slipped the drugs into his glass.  This shit would knock him out, but would not show up on any drug test.

“Charlie, don’t leave good Jack undrunk.”  Jasper urged.

Charlie sat up, his eyes barely open, and began swaying even more.  “FUCK YEAH!”  He yelled, picking up the glass and downing the drink.  A few minutes later, he was out like a light.

Then, Edward, Bella, Carlisle, Esme, and Alec came into the room.

Esme walked over to where Charlie was passed out, and slapped him hard across the face.  “YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!”  She yelled.  “HOW DARE YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT MY DAUGHTER!”  She reached for her purse, but remembered she had left it at home.


Edward chuckled at his mother; it was a good damn thing she didn’t have her gun, because she would have shot him.

“Alec, get his phone, and do your magic.”  Edward said.

Alec walked over to Charlie, and Jasper handed him the phone.  He quickly took off the back, and installed the specialized chip that would not only track his every move, but could access the microphone, so they could listen to any conversation around him.  Fucker was wired up.  He handed back to Jasper, who slipped it back into Charlie’s pocket.

“He is all set up.”  Alec said.   “The Coven team will monitor his every move.”

“Thanks, little brother.  I will see you next weekend in Boston.”

“Jasper, get some guys and put him up at the hotel down on 6th avenue.  Make sure you set the room up as though he had a bunch of girls in there with him.  Tell Carson to make Charlie believe when he wakes up, that he came in with two women.  Fuck, see if he has cash on him.” Edward ordered.

Jasper found Charlie’s wallet, and he had three hundred dollars cash in it.  “He has three hundred.”

“Take it all, and tell Carson to tell him he paid for the room.  If he asks about the girls, have him to tell him the girls looked happy when they left.”  Edward smirked.

“What do you want me to do with the money?”  Jasper asked.

“Donate it to the local homeless shelter.”  Edward answered.  He knew that both he and Bella did not want any part of the cash.

“Got it, boss.”  Jasper said with a large smile.  He took out his phone, and called a couple of the guard to help him.  Charlie Swan would wake up tomorrow morning with a terrible headache, naked, girl panties laying on the bed, and empty condom wrappers in a hotel room.


“Edward, Bella, what are going to do about him?”  Carlisle asked.

“We are going to listen, and find out just how much he knows, and where he is staying.  As bad as this could have turned out, we lucked out that Jasper was quick thinking, and got him talking.”  Edward bragged.  Jasper had really stepped up, and become the Capo that they needed.

“Good plan.”  Carlisle confirmed.  “Let’s go make a few rounds, and then get out of here.”

“Sounds good.”  Edward said, then leaned down to Bella’s ear, and whispered.  “I need to get you out of this dress, and fuck you hard.”

“Yes.”  Bella moaned.

They made their rounds, and soon they were back in the limo, and on their way home.  Each couple was worked up, not only by the night, but also by the adrenaline from the Charlie situation.  There was only one good way to work off adrenaline, and that was a night filled with hot steamy sex.

The next morning, Edward and Bella were up, eating breakfast, and smirking at each other, remembering the past night’s activities.  Edward couldn’t believe how many times he fucking came.  When he thought Bella was ready for sleep, she was crawling up his body, and taking control.  The sight of her new enlarged breasts bouncing up and down, along with the rest of her body bouncing hard on his cock was something he would remember for a long, long time.

After breakfast, they went into their home office, and contacted the Coven team to get an update on Charlie.  They had installed a camera in Charlie’s room when they had dropped off his drugged up body, and set up the scene.  Carson was more than happy to play along, and appreciated the envelope that Jasper handed to him.

“Any news about the suspect?”  Edward asked.

“No, sir.  He is still asleep.  We will contact you immediately when he wakes up.”

“Thank you.”

Bella called, and talked to Alice.  She told her how much she loved the uniforms and decor of the club.  They talked about Thanksgiving, and Alice agreed that she and Jasper would be coming to Esme’s home.  She invited Alice and Jasper over for dinner, and thought that Alice could possibly take a look at the potential nursery.

After her call to Alice, she contacted Rose and Emmett, and also invited them to dinner.  It had been too long since they had been together, enjoying a night of good food and laughter.  Bella spoke to Angela, and informed her of the guests for dinner, but also asked if she and Ben could also join in the fun.  Angela thanked Bella for the invite, and said it would be fun.

A few hours later, Edward got a call, stating that Charlie was awake. Once he yelled at Carson, he called for a taxi to take him to an apartment building downtown.

“Edward, it is the Harbor Steps Apartments.”  Jason said.

“Harbor Steps?  You are fucking joking me.  This just got a whole lot easier.  Have surveillance team pull up the tenants in the building, then cross reference those against the police department.  I want to know what damn pig is stinking up my wife’s family building.”


Bella had to laugh.  The Volturi did own and operate several apartment buildings in Seattle as the legal fronts.  The Harbor Steps just happened to be one of them.  It was one of the nicest apartment buildings in Seattle, with lovely views of the harbor, full gym, restaurants, and a variety of shops.  It was a great money maker, and had a long waiting list for possible spaces.  Now, there would be at least one opening coming up, soon, and they wouldn’t have to return the deposit.

“Hold on, Edward, they are doing their magic with the cross referencing.”  Jason explained.

A moment later, he returned,

“Fuck, really? Thanks.  Edward, Bella you will never guess who it is.”

“Who?”  Both asked.

“Fucking Paul Jacobs.”

“No fucking way.  The damn pig, causing us all these problems, is renting his apartment from us.  I guess the fucker didn’t research who owned the building.”  Edward laughed.  “Keep an eye and ear on their conversations.  Charlie said last night that he had to go back to Forks; make sure you keep a constant surveillance on him.  Also, get a team in Forks, find out what Jessica Stanley is doing.  I don’t think she is a one man woman, find out who else she is fucking.”

“Will do, Boss.”

After they hung up, Edward turned to Bella.  “Can you believe that shit?”

“No. What are we going to do?  It is not like we can just take out Paul without raising some eyebrows.”

“We are going to have to be very creative.  I can’t believe that fucking Commissioner hasn’t returned my fucking phone calls.  He gets a hefty cash bonus each year to look the other way.”  Edward grumbled.

“Do we have anything on him we could use a leverage?”

Edward grabbed Bella, and laid a hot passionate kiss on her pouty lips.  “Damn, baby, you are so fucking smart.  How did I forget the fucking photos of him and the mayor in a very compromising position?”

“Mayor Peterson?”  Bella asked.

“Yup.”  Edward chuckled.

“Oh my God.  Isn’t he the one who speaks out against the LGBT community?”

“Yup.  It seems that the Commissioner and the Mayor like to debate on who is the bottom in the relationship.  We have a whole series of images of the two of them.  Let me have Jasper shoot off an email with a few of the images, and see if he changes his mind.”  Edward said.

He called Jasper, who was more than happy to find the perfect images to send to the Commissioner.  The fucker had it coming to him.

Dinner was a blast, and it was nice to have an evening to kick back, and enjoy the company of people their own age.  Emmett, of course, was the life party. Rose had to, more than once, put him in his place.


Jasper and Alice told them they were trying to have a baby, and hoped that their little one would grow up playing with Edward and Bella’s baby.  Edward laughed, and said he hoped they wouldn’t get in trouble as much as Jasper and he did.


Bella took Alice and Rose upstairs, and showed them the room that would be the nursery.  Alice quickly took some measurements, and said she would get her plans back to them in a few weeks.  Rose told them she had decided to sell shop and to become a stay at home wife.

Emmett’s job took him away at all hours of the day and night, and this way she could be around whenever he needed her.  Bella recommend not selling, but hiring someone to run the shop.  It was a great business, and something that was needed in the community.  She offered Rose assistance in getting it set up.  Rose hugged her, and thanked her for her willingness to help.  Bella and Edward were happy to see everyone enjoying being married and in love.  After everyone left, Edward and Bella retired for the evening, enjoying their alone time wrapped up in each other.  Their love was displayed in every touch, kiss, and caress.

When the sun rose the next morning, the young couple got up to start their new day.  Bella’s morning sickness had disappeared, and, in its place was the ever longing need for Edward’s cock to be deep inside of her.  Edward never thought he would admit this, but she was wearing him out, and his poor cock was sore.


He was going to have to ask his dad for advice on this subject, because he was unsure how to address it with Bella without her biting off his head.  Her mood swings were still in full force, and he had begun making sure her gun and knives were locked away, before having a conversation that might turn ugly.

After a delicious breakfast, Jasper arrived at their house.  He walked in he had a smile that looked like he had swallowed a canary, and he was carrying a folder full of pictures.

“Jasper, by the look on your face, I assume you have some news for us?” Bella asked.

“Oh, yeah.”  Jasper laughed.

They all went into Edward and Bella’s office, and sat down.  “Okay, what do you have?”  Edward inquired.

“Well, the Commissioner got back to me, with the long ass excuse about being tied up with a very pressing matter, but was soon quick to ensure that we would not be bothered again by Paul Jacobs.  Actually, he’s going to recommend he either leave on his own, or be fired for mishandling the investigation.  It seems there wasn’t a search warrant for the docks.”

“Fucking great.”  Edward said.  “When is this supposed to go down?”

“Today.  He said he would call me with the decision that Paul makes.”

“That is fucking great.  I hate having pigs sniffing around.”  Edward groaned.

“Next, Charlie is still in Seattle, but will be leaving tomorrow.  He is trying to find a way to get to you again, but is running into brick walls.  But, the best thing is the news we have on Jessica.  It seems that Ms. Stanley has been sleeping her way through the entire male population of Forks.


What she doesn’t know is that one of the wives is very protective of her man, but, more than that, she is a crack shot.  Seems that she is a silver medalist in rifle three positions, and has been known to take care of her cheating husband’s mistresses.”


“But, don’t the police get involved?”  Bella wondered.

“Nope.  Won’t touch it.  She is the wife of the judge in the town.  No one wants to be on his bad side, so they sweep it under the table.”  Jasper answered.

“Do you mean she has killed his mistresses?”  Bella asked.

“There is no direct evidence to say that, but they are gone, and there is no evidence that they went anywhere else.”

“Fuck, we need to put her on the team.”  Edward joked.

“So, what is the plan?”  Bella questioned.

“We are going to send an envelope with pictures to the Judge’s wife; that will take care of Jessica.  Once Paul Jacobs is let go, we collect his ass up, and show him he can’t mess with the family.”  Jasper said.

“What about Charlie?”  Bella asked.

“Bella, love, that is up to you.  What do you think we should do?”  Edward said, wanting her to make the final decision on the man who, up until a few months ago, was her father.

Bella sat back, and began to think about what was best for not only for herself, but for the family.  Charlie and Renee had never truly been parents.  She has felt more love and support since she had met Edward and his family, than she did her entire life.  Did Charlie deserve to live and continue to make trouble for the family?  Or did he need to pay for all the cruel things he did to her, and tried to do the family?  There was only one right decision; she must protect the family at all costs.  Charlie Swan must die.



Bound and United Chapter 18


The shipment of guns was delivered to the buyer, who was extremely happy with the quality and quantity.  He vowed that he would only use the Cullen Volturi family for his future purchases.  The Coven team was also a business, and the money was rolling in.  Edward and Bella planned to have a meeting with the high ranking family members on Monday to inform them how the family’s assets were improving.  Bella was happy to see that, even without the drugs and prostitution, both families were even more profitable than before.

Bella and Edward left their office, and went down two floors to where two health care offices had been set up.  Walking in, they were impressed with how professional, yet comfortable, it was.  When they got up to the counter, they were met by Crystal, one of Maria’s girls.

“Mr. & Mrs. Cullen, what a pleasure it is to see you again.”  Crystal gushed, smiling brightly.


“Crystal, it is a pleasure to see you as well.  How are you liking your new job?”  Bella asked.

Crystal’s eyes clouded over with tears. She grabbed a tissue, and dabbed the corners of her eyes, trying hard not to ruin her makeup.  “There are no words for how much I love this job.  Thank you for helping me find a better life for myself.  You are a God-send.”

“We are happy to help.  If you ever need anything, please contact us.  You are part of our family, and we take care of family.”  Bella assured Crystal.

“I will.  Come, let me take you back to your room. Dr. Muir will be with you in just a few minutes.”  Crystal stated.

They followed her down the hall, where she opened the door to the exam room.  Walking into the room, they found it had a small loveseat, and sat down.  Edward looked around the room, and noticed a picture across from him that showed the different phases of pregnancy.  So much happened in the baby’s development in just a few weeks.   He was amazed; he never thought about it before now.


“Bella, Edward so good to see you.”  Meribeth said as she walked into the room with a chart in her hands.

“Meribeth, the office looks great.”  Bella praised.

“It does.  Thank you so much for the wonderful support.  I have never worked in an office this nice before.”

“It is our pleasure.  Are you keeping busy?”  Edward asked.

“Oh my, yes.  You were so right about the family needing this.  Now let’s get you weighed, get your vitals, and then see little baby Cullen.”

Edward stood, and helped Bella up.  She walked over to scales. Meribeth recorded that she had gained a good two and a half pounds since her last visit.  Bella went over the exam table.   Meribeth took all her vitals, and was pleased with the numbers.

“Bella, will you unbutton your skirt, and lower it down a little?”

“Don’t I need to remove it?”  Bella asked.

“We will be doing an external exam.”  Meribeth explained.

Bella unbuttoned and unzipped her skirt, and lowered it past her tummy.  Edward helped her lie back on the table.  Meribeth picked up the ultrasound jelly, and squirt it on Bella’s stomach.

“Wow, I was expecting it to be cold.  I had read that it usually was.”  Bella said.

“I made sure that we purchased the warmer unit for the jelly.”  Meribeth laughed.

“I’m glad you did!”  Bella giggled.

Meribeth turned on the monitor, which was like a large screen tv on the wall.  Picking up the wand, she began rubbing it over Bella’s stomach, then, suddenly, the room was filled with the fast heartbeat of baby Cullen.

“Edward.”  Bella cried.

“Oh, baby, that is so heartwarming.”  Edward said, placing kisses on Bella temple.

Meribeth could tell that the love that Edward and Bella shared was something that one only saw once in a lifetime.  Composing herself, she began tell the couple about the development of their child, and how everything looked perfect.  She printed out four copies of the final images, as she had been asked, and handed them to the couple.


“I want to see you back in a month.  Keep up with what you are doing.”  Meribeth explained.

“We will, thank you so much, Meribeth.”  Edward gushed.

They left, and made their appointment with Crystal.  As they were walking out, they were stopped by the patients who were waiting to be seen. They, too, thanked them so much for setting up the doctors’ offices for them.  Edward and Bella spent time talking to each one, getting to know them and their families.  The men, women, and children told them that they felt blessed to be part of such a wonderful family.  Their husbands, wives, sons, and daughters might be part of a crime organization, but, to everyone, it was, and will always be, just a family.  When they finally talked to everyone, they made their way back to the office.

They returned to the office.  Soon after, Jasper appeared with Dakota.  After last night’s hilarious home video, Edward and Bella wanted to meet the man who had come up with the perfect plan, and executed it to perfection.

Edward and Bella both stood when they walked in the office.  Dakota had heard about Edward and Bella Cullen, but had never met them.  When he looked upon them, he knew what everyone had said was true.  There was an aura around them that screamed dangerous.

“Dakota Mills, so glad you could come by; please, have a seat.”  Edward said.

Dakota sat down in one of the chairs while Jasper stood to the side.  His hands were shaking, and he was breaking out in a sweat.

Edward and Bella sat down, and began to explain why they asked him to meet them.

“Dakota, thank you for coming in today.  We wanted to thank you for your brilliant plan.  Also, we have not stopped laughing at the video of those fucking pigs, covered in shit, slipping and falling.”

“Thank you.  I am just glad it worked, and we got the shipment to the buyers.”  Dakota said.

“Dakota, we know about your wife, and we are deeply sorry for your loss.  Is there anything we can do for your daughters, or you?”  Bella asked.


Dakota was shocked by what Bella had said.  He was trying to be both a father, and now mother, but it was hard.  The money he made on the docks was good, but the hospital bills had hit him hard.  But, he didn’t want to seem like he was begging for help.  He was not a charity case.

Edward was excellent at non-verbal cues.  He could tell Dakota was struggling, but was too proud to say something.  “Dakota, I don’t know what I would do without Bella.  She owns my heart and soul.  But, you have two little girls who are also missing their mother.  Please, let us know what we can do for you.  Bella and I want you to feel like you are a part of our family, and family takes care of family.”

“Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Cullen, but I am just a man who works on the docks.”  Dakota explained.

“Dakota, we know you are more than that.  You forget we have our ways.”  Edward chuckled.  “You have a degree in business management from UDub, but couldn’t find a job, so you went to work for Coleman Dock Company as a heavy machine operator.  After a few months, you were trained as a crane operator, where you have remained until today.  You applied for several management positions, but was turned down each time.  You currently are over your head in debt, due to your wife’s hospital bills.”

“HOLY FUCK!  SHIT! I am sorry about that.”  Dakota stuttered.  He couldn’t believe he just said fuck in front of Mr. & Mrs. Cullen.

Bella giggled.  “Dakota, don’t worry about that.  My darling husband says worse than that every ten minutes.”

“I don’t fucking do that.”  Edward huffed.

Dakota couldn’t help but laugh.

“All kidding aside, we would like for you to come work for us.”  Bella said.  “We need someone to be a liaison between the family and management on the docks.”

“But, why me?”  Dakota asked.

“Because we have seen that you have a great head on your shoulders, you can think on your feet, and you would be an asset to the family.”  Edward answered.

Dakota thought of what they were offering.  He sure he would be making a great living to give his daughters what they needed, but it would also get him deeper inside the crime family.  Was he ready to do that?  Then he thought that this was more than just crime, this was a family.  “I would love to, Mr. and Mrs. Cullen.”

“Jasper, get him up to speed.  By the way, Dakota, those hospital bills have been taken care of; no more worrying for you.”  Edward said.

Dakota thanked them, and left to find out all about his new job and responsibilities.  He felt lighter, the heavy burden he had been carrying had been lifted.

The rest of day seemed to fly by, and, before they knew it, it was time to go home, and get ready for the grand opening for Eclipse.  Edward had purchased Bella’s dress for the event.  They would be going as Edward and Bella, not Master/submissive.  Edward knew that there would be lots of people who would want to talk to Bella, and he wanted her to feel free to interact with them.  They had talked at length about it, and Edward explained his decision. Bella accepted it.

The dress he had selected was a mix of sophistication, with a splash of naughty.  The long black gown had black, applique flowers, and the back was cut out, dipping low on her back.


It fit like a glove, and even her small baby bump showed.  Edward was nuts over seeing it.  He kept placing his hand over it, and talking to it.  Of course, every fifth word was fuck, but that was just Edward.

They were going to be picking up his parents, and arriving together at the opening.  Ben drove next door. When he pulled up, Carlisle walked out in his black Armani tux while Esme was wearing an elegant, emerald green sheath dress.  It had a sweetheart neckline with a black beaded applique, and came to mid thigh with long sheer material attached to give the illusion of a long gown.  Esme Cullen may have been in her fifties, but she had a smoking hot body.


Carlisle assisted the love of his life into the car, and then climbed in behind her.  They sat across from Edward and Bella.

“Mom, you look fantastic.”  Bella declared.

“So, do you, sweetie.”

“What about me?”  Carlisle jested.

Bella placed her finger up to her mouth, and eyed him up and down.  Turning her head from side to side, she scrunched up her nose.


Carlisle’s eyes got large, and began to examine his suit, thinking he had placed the wrong jacket on.  She began to giggle.  “Daddy, you look handsome as always.”

Edward couldn’t help but sigh a little.  He knew that Bella loved his parents like he did, but, more than that, they loved her like a daughter.  His life was fucking great.

They pulled up at Eclipse, and loved the fact that it was fucking nuts.  There were people standing in line to get in, and news crews and reporters trying to get the story.  Carmine was out front giving interviews.  As soon as the limo pulled up, all attention was off of Carmine, and on who might be in the car.

Ben got out, and walked around.  He waited until all of the bodyguards were in position before opening the door.  Carlisle stepped out with a barrage of camera flashes.


Then,  he turned, and offered his hand to Esme, who exited the car with grace.  She wrapped her arm around his, and, together, they took a few steps away from the door.  They knew that, as soon as Edward and Bella exited the car, all hell was going to break loose.

Edward turned to Bella.  “Are you ready?”


He placed a quick kiss on her lips, and stepped out of the car.  The flashes were blinding and reporters were yelling.  “Mr. Cullen, over here.  Mr. Cullen.”


He ignored them, and offered his hand to his lovely wife. She stepped out, and, as soon as she did, all hell broke loose.  Cameras were flashing, reporters were trying to get her attention, and then the people who were waiting to get in began cheering.  Bella wondered why everyone was so excited about their appearance.  As they joined Carlisle and Esme, they walked toward the door.

“Mrs. Cullen, who are wearing?”  One of the reporters yelled.

Esme turned, and reached for Bella’s hand.  “We are both wearing Marc Jacobs.”  She said, and waited for the photographers to get their photos.  Over the years she had gotten use to this type of attention.  Normally, they were left alone, but, whenever they had an opening, or attended an event, they were pushed into the limelight.  Most of the reporters and news had an idea who the Cullens were, but they would never publish it.

Once inside the door, Bella was taken aback by what she saw.  Before her was something she never thought she would ever see; her dream was alive.  She began to breathe deeply, and tried to regain her composure, but it was hard.

Edward looked around the room; he was proud.  This was one fucking awesome club.  He couldn’t wait to look around, and to go to the other floors.  His wife’s idea was something of unspeakable beauty.  Wrapping his arm around her tiny waist, he pulled her closer, and, when he did, he noticed she was taking deep breaths.  He looked down, and saw tears in her eyes.  Pulling even closer, he leaned down.  “Baby, what is wrong?”

“It is real.”  She murmured.

“What is real?”  He asked.

“My dream.  Edward, you made my dream come true.”  She cried, willing her tears to not to follow.

“No, baby, you made it happen; I am so fucking proud to be your husband.”

Bella raised her head up, and placed a quick kiss on his lips.  “I love you.”

“Fuck, baby, I love you.  Now, come on, let’s go check this shit out.”

Bella took Edward’s arm, and they began their tour through the club.  The music was loud, the drinks were flowing, and the members were dancing, and having a great time.  They went to next level, and, much like the first level, the members were enjoying themselves.  When they finally got to the black level, the atmosphere was surreal.  There were many Dominants with their submissives, enjoying the amenities of their membership.

Bella was impressed with the decor and the selection of uniforms for the servers, bartenders, and managers.  The front entry was all in blood red velvet.  Red velvet draped from the ceiling to the floors.  The sofa and chairs were in red velvet and black leather.  Amber colored lighting gave the room a warm, rich feel.


This was where the Dominants, and if they brought their submissives, could sit and enjoy their drinks, but there was a limit on how many alcoholic drink the Dominants could have.  Safety of the submissives were priority number one.  The next room was the check in for the private playroom suites.   It was decorated in gold and black, and would have a member of the management team on duty at all times.  The playroom suites were leased out to the black level members, who could decorate them according to their tastes and needs.


Once they finished their tour, they went down to the first level, and went to one of VIP section.  A server came over immediately with a bottle of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne, and a bottle of sparkling apple cider.  Edward had made sure to have several bottles of this special champagne on hand, so they could toast special occasions, and sparkling apple cider for his lovely pregnant wife.

After the champagne and cider were poured, Carlisle stood up.

“I would like to propose a toast.  To Bella, without you we would have just built Puss and Boots back as a strip club, but, because of you, we have this wonderful club, which has made more money before it opened than Puss and Boots did in a whole year.”


“Hear, hear.”  Edward and Esme cheered.

Bella blushed a bright shade of red.  Once the toast was over, they began to talk about the club, and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Outside the club, the bouncers and the security guard were controlling who came into the club.  Only those with invitation or memberships were allowed entrance.


A older man walked up to the bouncer.

“Name.”  The bouncer asked.

“My name is not required.”  The older man grunted.

“Sir, if you want entry into the club, you will have to give me your name.”

“Listen here, asshole, my whore of a daughter is the fucking owner of this shit hole.  Now, let me go in so I can see her lousy ass.”

Jasper had walked outside to check on how the bouncers were doing.  As soon as he walked out the door, he heard what the older man was spouting off.

“Sir, I can assure you that your daughter is not the owner of this establishment.”  Jasper said.


“Look here, pretty boy, my worthless daughter is Isabella Swan, and I hear she is the fucking the owner, so let me in.”

When Jasper heard the man use Bella’s name, he knew he needed to get this asshole out of the line; somewhere where he could find out who the fuck he was.  “Sir, come with me, and I will take you to their private suite.”

The old man followed Jasper to the side of the building, where Jasper swiped his card, and took him inside.  He was going to take him to one of the private rooms, and then go get Edward.  This fucker had trouble written all over him.  The room that he took him into was one of the private party rooms, which had one way glass that overlooked the dance floor, plush black sofas and chairs, and a private bar.


“Would you like a drink?”  Jasper asked as he walked toward the bar.  “Hey, I didn’t catch your name; mine is Jack.”

“Charlie.  Yeah, but I don’t want any of that foo-foo shit.”

“My type of man.  Whiskey, bourbon, vodka?”  Jasper asked, walking around the bar.  He pushed the security camera button, and pulled out his phone to send a text to Edward.

E..check camera 5B.

“I’ll have Jack straight up.”  Charlie grunted, looking around the room.

“Fuck, what a nice place.”

“I’ll bring the bottle.”  Jasper chuckled, wanting Charlie to feel comfortable with him.  He brought the bottle of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century, and sat it down on the table with two glasses.


“Well, fuck, Jack, you do know what this bottle cost?”  Charlie gasped.  He had been drinking Jack for most his life, and he never thought he would be drinking Jack that cost six hundred dollars a bottle.

“Wanting to show you a good time, man.”  Jasper answered.  He poured two glasses, and handed one to Charlie.  “Bottoms up.”

Charlie downed the glass, and, as he sat it down, Jasper refilled it.  “So, why are you here Charlie?”

Charlie downed the glass, and held it out for a refill.  “My whore of a daughter is hooked up with some type of gangster, and I am here to get what I deserve.”

************************B & U*******************************************

Edward and Bella were laughing at Esme telling Carlisle that he had to watch his waistline, so there would be no extra sweets before Thanksgiving dinner.  Carlisle was whining that he couldn’t do without her wonderful cookies.

Edward felt his phone vibrate. When he looked at the screen, he gasped.  Fuck, what now?  Were those fucking pigs trying to start something today?

“We have a problem.”  Edward said.

“What?”  Bella asked, concerned what was happening.

“I don’t know, but we need to get to the control room now.”

They all got up, and headed to the secure control room.  When they arrived at the door, they were met by two large guards.

“Mr. and Mrs. Cullen.”  They said.

“We need in… now.”  Edward quipped.

“Certainly, sir.  Is there a problem?”

“I won’t know until I get in.  Stand by, and be prepared for reinforcements.”

Edward, Bella, Carlisle, and Esme walked into the control room.  Three controls were watching the bevy of monitors that showed every inch of the club.


“Pull up room 5B on the big screen; I also want audio.”  Edward barked.

The control pulled up the room, and pulled the video and audio to the big screen.  As soon as the images appeared, Bella gasped.

“HOLY FUCK!  THAT’S CHARLIE!”  She screamed.


Chapter 17 Bound and United

The next week was busy for Edward and Bella.  They returned to work, and dug into business.  Jasper had brought them up to speed with the house cleaning that had been done.  Edward was happy how Jasper had stepped up and taken control.


“Jasper, it sounds like you handled the situation wonderfully.”  Edward said.

“Thank you, Edward.  I would do anything to protect the family.”  Jasper replied.

“We know, Jasper.  Do you have any more information on Paul Jacob’s plans?  What has Lawrence said?  Fuck, we paid him a half million dollars last year.”  Edward complained.

“I called him, but he is not picking up his phone.”  Jasper said.

“Do you think we have a problem with him?”

“I don’t know until I talk to him.  But, until then, we need to be prepared for the pigs to visit at any moment.”  Jasper explained.

“What about the shipment that is due in tonight?”  Bella asked.

“I have put extra security into place, and we have moved in an excessive amount of empty containers.  It is going to be almost impossible to know which ones that are holding the guns, and which ones aren’t.”

“Like a big shell game?”  Bella asked.

“Yes.”  Jasper answered.

“Who do we have on the crane?”  Edward asked.

“His name is Dakota Mills.  He has worked on the docks since he was eighteen.   He is a single father of two little girls.”  Jasper explained.


“What happened to his wife?”  Bella asked.

“She died of cancer last year.”

“How sad?  Can we trust him?”  Bella wondered.

“He has always been very trustworthy.  Actually, it was his idea to put in the extra containers.  He has the containers marked on the top, so a man standing on the ground wouldn’t be able to see it.”

“What is in the containers?”  Edward asked.

Jasper chuckled.  “Barrels of pig shit.”

“Pig shit?”  Edward laughed.

“Yup.  He said that if that fucking pigs wanted to sniff around, he would give them want they fucking deserved.”

“That is perfect.  Is the surveillance camera set, and ready to record?”  Bella asked.

“Yes, they are all set, and ready to go.”  Jasper answered.   “Are you excited about the grand opening tomorrow night?”

“We are.  Carmine is coming by after lunch to go over the final details.  Maggie has a meeting with us at three.  Fuck, she did such a fantastic job on the building after the fuck up she was giving after Jacob *cough* resigned.”  Edward smirked.

Jasper laughed at the comment.  “Yeah, you gave him such a wonderful going away party, Edward.”

Edward chuckled as he thought back to the fun that had with Jacob Black.  Fucking asshole thought Bella was his.  It was a shame, because the Black family had been architects for the family for many years.  He threw away a cushy life; he and his demented thoughts.

After the meeting, Edward and Bella ordered in their lunch, and enjoyed a few quiet moments together.  Bella had a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning, and was excited to hear updates on their little bundle of joy.  They had called Alice, and asked if she would like to design the nursery.  Their eardrums rang for hours afterwards from her screaming.  She was going to come over on Monday to take measurements, and get an idea of what they wanted, and what they didn’t, in the room.

They had also talked about Thanksgiving dinner.  Esme had called and said she would love to host the dinner.  She had invited a lot of the family; most everyone was coming.  The only ones who weren’t going to be at Thanksgiving dinner were Alec and Maggie.  They were going to be spending Thanksgiving in Boston with Sean and Elizabeth.  They would be staying in Boston until after the wedding.  Bella had been disappointed that she would be spending her first Thanksgiving without her brother.  She understood, but was still disappointed about it.  Alec had come by the office, and told her their plans, but promised her that they would be spending Christmas with her.  After a tearful long hug, Bella told him that they would have the best Christmas ever together as a family.

Once they finished eating, they went into the en suite bathroom to freshen up for their meetings.  Edward watched as she made sure her stockings were straight.  She had placed one leg on the bench, twisting and pulling the stocking. Her ass stuck out toward Edward’s face.  The more he watched, the harder he became, and, when he couldn’t take anymore, he stood from the chair, and walked toward her.  He grasped her around the waist, and pulled her ass tight against his cock.

“Do you feel what you do to me?”  Edward murmured.

“Yes.”  Bella moaned.

“I bet if I put my hand up that fucking skirt of yours that I will find my pussy wet.  Does my pussy need something?”  Edward taunted.

Bella knew he was right.  She turned, faced him, and pulled him down so she could kiss the living fuck out of him.  Their tongues battled each other for dominance, and, when they had no air left, they broke, gasping for air.


Edward lifted her up, and sat her on the edge of the vanity.  Running his hand up her legs, he finally reached her satin covered pussy, and, sure enough, it was soaking wet with need.  Taking a hold of the sides of the panties, he ripped them off her.  Taking a step back, he unbuckled his belt, pulled down his zipper, and pushed his pants and underwear to the ground.  Taking his thick cock in one hand, he pushed it into her pussy, the hot wet hole encasing his cock so perfectly.  Bella wrapped her legs around his waist as he began to repeatedly pound into her.

“Fuck, Edward, that feel so fucking amazing.”  Bella cried.

“Fuck yeah.  Baby, I am not going to last, you need to cum and cum now.”  Edward demanded.

Bella reached down between them, and began to pinch her clit; suddenly the wave of pure euphoria washed over her. Her orgasm came in waves, gripping Edward’s cock, causing his own orgasm to start.  Finally, they calmed down enough, and Edward pulled out of his hot, wet home.

“Fuck, baby, that was intense.”  He moaned.

“Fuck yeah it was.”

They finally cleaned up, and Bella was happy that she kept extra underwear here at the office, just in case.  They returned to their desk with huge smiles on their faces.

There was a knock on the door, and Carmen popped her head in.

“Mr. & Mrs. Cullen, Carmine is here for his appointment.”  She announced.

“Thank you, Carmen.”  Bella said, as Edward and her stood.

Carmine was at awe at the sight before him.  He could see and feel the energy coming off the pair.  “Edward, Bella, it is so good to see you back.”

“Carmine, thank you.  We love being back.  Please, have a set.”  Edward answered.

“Thank you.”  Carmine said, and sat down in the chair in front of the dual desk.

“So, are we ready to open tomorrow night?”  Bella asked.

“We are very ready.  I have never worked with a staff so polished and professional as this staff.  Maria’s girls are top notch and an extreme asset to the club.”

“It is wonderful to hear that.  We wanted to help these women, who were abused so badly.  It was my promise when we took over the family to help these women to find jobs that they would be proud to work at, and to be financially stable.”  Bella said.

“That is so admirable of you.”  Carmine declared.  “I have to say this club is out of this world.  I am not talking just the design, but the whole concept of it.”

Edward wrapped his arms around Bella, and kissed her temple.  “She has a fucking awesome brain to go with her hot body.”

Bella slapped his arm.  “Stop that.”  She growled.

“Bella, this was your concept?”  Carmine asked.

Bella couldn’t help but blush a bright shade of red.  “Yes, it is mine.”

“It is wonderful.  I would seriously think about taking this concept into cities across the country.”  Carmine proposed.  “I know for a fact this would be huge in the D.C. area.”

“Washington, D.C.?”  Edward questioned.

“Yes, sir.  Those fuckers are kinky as fuck.  They are always looking for a club, and one with discretion is top priority.”

“That is something we believe in.  Do you happen to know any of the Dominants?”  Edward asked.

“Actually, yes.  He is a rising star in the political arena.  It is rumored that he will be running for the Presidency in eight years.”

“Why is he waiting so long?”  Bella questioned.

“Because he is only twenty-eight.”  Carmine chuckled.

“Fuck, that is young.”  Edward exclaimed.

“He is, but is already a state senator.  I met him at the club in Los Angeles and we began to talk.  He graduated from Harvard at the age of twenty, went into the Marines, and pulled two tours in Afghanistan, received both a purple heart and silver star.  When he came back home to Virginia, his father was a sitting Senator, and wanting to retire.  He ran, and fucking won.  Damn, he has this charisma that make anyone wants to listen to his every word.  He allowed me to view one of his sessions with a submissive, and, fuck, he was pure joy to watch.  I spoke to the submissive after the session, and she said that she had never had a Dominant command her like he had.”

“What is his name?”  Edward questioned.

“Davison McKinsey.”


“Fuck, he sounds like he is doing everything right. But, isn’t he afraid that his sexual preference will get out?”  Edward asked.

“Edward, you know as I do that you can’t stop being a Dominant.  He is very careful, and that is why I think we should seriously think about looking into building a club in the D.C. area.”  Carmine urged.

“Why don’t we wait until after the holidays are over with, and sit down again, and have this discussion.”  Bella requested.

“That sounds like a good plan.”  Edward said.  “How are the memberships going?”

“Silver membership is at 70%, Gold membership is at 80%, and Black membership is at 95%, with all but two of the private rooms rented.”

“HOLY FUCK!”  Edward exclaimed.

“I know, right?  As soon as the memberships came available for sale, the phone was ringing off the hook.  Alec and his workers have been extremely busy with the background checks.  He found several applicants unsuitable.”  Carmine explained.

“We are glad that we are being so thorough.  I don’t want another James incident to happen again.”  Bella said.

Edward shivered at the thought about how James was a member of Diamond Knotts, and how close he came to harming Bella.  They brought Alec in before memberships went up for sale, and explained they wanted a top level security sweep on all applicants.  Alec assured them that no one would get through.  So, to hear that he had found possible problems, eased  Edward’s mind.

“Did anyone have a problem with the pricing?”  Edward questioned.

“Only the ones who were rejected.”  Carmine joked.  “The Dominants that passed the background checks, were taken on private tours of the building and each one of the private rooms.  They were thoroughly impressed by the decor and security of the building.  Many of them have already started setting the rooms up to meet their needs.”

Edward and Bella finished up the meeting with Carmine, and went back to their paperwork, as well as went over the books for all their businesses.  Diamond Knotts membership numbers were okay, but nowhere near Eclipse’s.

“Do you think we might need to do an upgrade at Diamond Knotts?”  Bella asked.

“What do you have in mind?”

“I am not sure, but why don’t we have Maggie look at the floor plans, and see what she thinks?”  Bella answered.

“Sounds good.  But we are running out of time this year.  Maggie and Alec will be gone all next week, and then we both know she will be running around trying to get her wedding plans finalized when they return.”  Edward explained.

“I know, we might have to wait after the first of the year for this as well.”

“Yeah, I think so.”

Maggie arrived on time, and they discussed the end cost figures for Eclipse, and were pleased to hear that it had come in under budget and on time.  Maggie had done a hell of job after the mess she had inherited from Jacob Black.  Edward and Bella told her they had a few projects they wanted her to look at, but they could wait until after the holidays.  Maggie asked what they were.  Once she heard,  she agreed that a project in DC would take some time to plan, but she wanted to look at the plans for Diamond Knotts when she returned from Boston.  She felt confident that she could come up with a solution to make Diamond Knotts more profitable.

Bella asked her how the wedding plans were coming along, and Maggie excitedly told her everything that Esme and she had done.  She also told them about her shopping trips with Alec for their new house.  She hoped to go to some antique shops when they were in Boston next week, and have everything shipped back.  The plan was to have all the house complete soon so they could move in right after their wedding.

After Maggie left, Edward and Bella finished up some paperwork, and headed home.  Jasper was going to watch over the shipment coming in, and would keep them abreast of any problems that would arise.  They enjoyed a relaxing evening by the fire, looking over their baby book, and talking about Bella’s appointment.

They were going to talk to Meribeth tomorrow about them being in the community, and the fact that Bella was a submissive.  They hoped she wasn’t narrow minded about it, and would listen to them explain what that all entailed.  Edward explained that, over the years, so many Dominants and submissives had had a hard time trying to convince people who were not in the community, that it wasn’t a man getting his jollys off by hitting a woman.  Edward had lots of documentation on BDSM and submissives who were expecting to show Meribeth that they could safely continue their Master/submissive relationship for the duration of Bella’s pregnancy.

There were two rooms that would be perfect for the nursery, but they selected the room that had larger windows, and allowed lots of natural light into the room.  It was larger than most nurseries, but they wanted only the best for next Don or Donna of the family.  Bella was getting excited to see what Alice came up with for the room.

Later in the evening, Edward’s phone rang. When he picked it up, and saw it was Jasper.  Fuck, had something gone wrong with the shipment.

“Jasper.”  Edward answered, as he put the phone on speaker so Bella could hear. “What is wrong?”

Jasper was trying to gain control, but what he had just witnessed was the funniest thing he had ever seen in his entire life.

“Nothing is wrong.”  Jasper laughed.


“Jasper, why are you crying?”  Bella asked.

“I am not crying, I am laughing.”  He chuckled.  “Pull up the surveillance tape, and watch it.  The shipment is fine, and on it’s way to the buyer, but the pigs are rooting around, and have made a mess.”

“All right; we will call you back after review the tape.”  Edward said.  He got up, and retrieved his laptop.  Logging in to the secure server, he pulled up the surveillance tape, and hit play.

They saw Dakota and his team lifting the containers from one location to the next in the pouring rain. Then, all of a sudden, they saw a large group of men dressed in black with the word POLICE written across their chests and guns drawn.  As Dakota placed one the locked containers down, the cops move in, and, with bolt cutters, cut the lock off.  They then saw several of the cops rush in, and then watched as they came out, ready to enter one of the red containers.  Then, from the side, they saw Paul Jacobs walking up to the container. Edward and Bella could see a smirk on his face.  He placed his hand on the lid, and, as he began to remove it, the gas pack that had been placed in the containers, under the shit, exploded, throwing shit all over Paul and every cop standing near it.  Edward and Bella could see the shit, mixed with the rain running down the cops’ bodies.  They could hear them coughing and cursing.  Paul was trying to whip the shit off of himself, but, with each swipe, he made it worse. Then, as they began to move away from the container, they began to slip and fall.

Edward and Bella both laughed until tears rolled down their eyes.  The fucking cops looked like a bunch of pigs wallowing around in the mud.


They had to crawl away from the container to the side parking lot where they were parked.  The camera panned back to the crane, where Edward and Bella saw Dakota look directly at the camera and hold his thumb up, indicating that all was fine with the true shipment.  Served the fucking pigs right for trying to fuck with the family
