“Warm, soft, silky smooth, feels like heaven,” Edward thought. He was having the best dream. He was wrapped around a stunning, dark-haired beauty after they had finished making sweet love all night long. The woman’s warm, loving embrace erased all the hurt that Victoria and James had inflicted. Nuzzling into the sweet, aromatic neck, he began to place delicate kisses across it as he rubbed his fingers across her erect nipples. When Edward heard a deep throaty moan, he took the nipple between his fingers and began tugging and pinching.
“Yes,” She groaned, running her hand down his body and grasping his hard, thick cock. She then began pumping it with slow, rhythmic pumps, which caused Edward to moan.
“This is the best fucking dream of my entire life,” Edward thought, then, suddenly, the hand was gone from his cock and a woman’s scream echoed into his ears.
“WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?!” Bella screamed, waking up from an unbelievably sexy dream.
Edward’s eyes popped opened; he was startled to see the woman from his dreams standing on the other side of the bed, naked. He jumped from the bed. “I am Edward, who are you and why are you in my bed?”
“Your bed? This is my bed. I rented this cabin and I am about two seconds away from calling the authorities to arrest your ass,” Bella fumed, as she took a good look at, what she hated to admit, the sexiest man she had ever seen. His hair was auburn and was laying in every direction, as if he had been having wild sex all night. He had a strong, chiseled jaw, full pouty lips, and piercing green eyes. She then allowed her eyes to wander down from his face to his firm, muscular chest which was covered with a light smattering of hair. Traveling lower, she saw the fucking sexiest cut of his waist, which seemed to be directing her to look down. She did and couldn’t help but gasp. HOLY SHIT, he had a long, thick, hard cock that was fully erect and was slapping against his body. Her pussy contracted with the thought of what it would feel like deep inside of her.
While Bella was checking out Edward, he was taking in all her lovely curves. Fuck, she was a stunning woman: long, wavy brunette hair, smooth alabaster skin, full, plump pink lips, milk chocolate eyes and the face of an angel. Her body was made for sin, with full breasts, a tiny waist, and a bare mound. His cock twitched with the thought of being in her tight, hot pussy.
“I rented this cabin and I can prove it,” Edward said.
“Well, so can I,” Bella stormed, stomping over to her purse and pulling out her receipt.
She stomped back, which caused her tits to bounce with each step, Edward was mesmerized by them. She handed him the receipt. Edward looked at it and smirked.
“This says that you rented a cabin at 5666, but this is the cabin at 5696.”
“No, it is not,” Bella growled. “Dave from Platt Rentals brought me here.”
“Look why don’t we get dressed and sit down and figure this out,” Edward said, even though he hated the thought of the luscious body being covered up.
Bella looked down and quickly tried to cover up her private parts with her hands. “FUCK!” She yelled taking off toward the bathroom. She was so mesmerized by his naked form that she forgot she was naked as well.
Edward walked over to where he took off his wet clothes in early morning hours and slipped on his pants and shirt. Taking the poker from the rack, he stoked the remaining embers in the fireplace, then placed several pieces of wood on top of them. He then checked the light switch to find that the power was still out.
Bella put on blue velour pants, a long sleeve t-shirt with a matching jacket, and a pair of her favorite furry slippers. She had tried the lights but found that the power was still out. Oh well, it wasn’t like she didn’t know how to survive with power. During her many travels for the company, she had learned how to be self-sufficient in any circumstance. Running the hairbrush through her hair and brushing her teeth, Bella took a deep breath, then walked out of the bathroom. Looking around the room, she found Edward standing at the front window looking out.
“Is it still snowing?” Bella asked, moving closer to Edward.
“Yes, and the wind is still blowing hard. I can hardly see the top of the Jeep.”
“Well, it is going to be a really cold walk to the right cabin,” Bella joked.
“Yeah, baby, it’s cold outside,” Edward replied with one of his signature smirks that, back in the day, would make the women drop their panties. “I wouldn’t want you to catch a cold.”
“Funny, asshole. Let’s fix us something to eat and talk about this predicament that we seem to be in,” Bella said.
“Well, I guess it is cold cereal because the electricity is still out,” Edward declared.
“You can eat cold cereal, while I eat a nice hot meal,” Bella proclaimed with an evil glint in her eyes. Going to the kitchen, she began searching for the correct pans to use and she was excited to see that the kitchen was stocked with cast iron skillets and pots that would be perfect for cooking over the fire. Bella was also happy to find a coffee pot and coffee grinder that would allow her to brew over an open flame. Opening the refrigerator, she took out some eggs, bacon, and butter. With all her loot, she went over to the fireplace and saw that, in fact, it had a cooking grate and iron arm for holding pots.
Edward stood back and watched in awe. He would have never thought about cooking over the fireplace flames, but she was busy doing just that.
“If you would like some of this, you can help. Bring over the bread and a couple of plates,” Bella instructed.
Edward did as he was told and brought over everything that Bella had requested. As he sat the items down, he sat on one of the chairs beside the fire and watched her cook. Then he remembered he hadn’t checked in with his family. Taking out his phone, he saw that he had no cell service. “Bella, do you have cell service?”
“Nope, I believe the storm has knocked it out as well,” Bella said.
“I bet you are right. Where did you learn to cook like this?”
“On a trip to Greenland a few years ago. The home I was staying at lost power during a blizzard much like this and the lady of the house taught me how to cook over a fire. When I returned to the States, I made sure to purchase a set of cast iron cookware, because I loved how the food tastes when they are used.”
“Do you travel a lot?” Edward asked.
“Yes, for work. I hope one day to go back to the places I have visited for pleasure,” Bella answered.
“I understand about working all the time,” Edward confessed.
Finishing up the eggs, bacon, and toast, Bella placed some on a plate and handed it to Edward. After fixing her plate, she poured the coffee into cups for herself and Edward.
Sitting opposite Edward, she began to eat, enjoying the meal that she had just prepared. Every so often, she would look up at Edward, who was devouring his meal. “Do you like it?”
“Hell yeah, I mean yes,” Edward stuttered.
“Got a potty mouth, I see,” Bella giggled.
“Yup, got it from my mother,” Edward said.
“Your mother? Damn, I like her already.”
“I love her, you remind me of her. Strong, confident, and do anything you set your mind to,” Edward confessed.
“Thank you. Being an only child has made me this way. My father has always pushed me to excel in everything I do. What about you, do have any brothers or sisters?”
“I have a younger sister, Piglet,” Edward answered.
“Oh my, what a name.”
“I call her Piglet; her real name is Alice and is a force to be reckoned with at all times. I am her Eeyore.”
“Cute, so why are here in the middle of nowhere on Christmas? Shouldn’t you be with your family?” Bella asked.
“I needed to get away for a while from everyone. What about you?”
Bella took another drink of her coffee. For some reason, she felt compelled to tell him the real reason why she was here. Why? He was a stranger, and she knew nothing about him other than his name. But there was something about him that made her feel, comfortable, something she never felt around Jacob. She got up and walked over to the Christmas tree and looked at the wooden ornaments. “I was supposed to have got married yesterday to a man that I have known most of my life. However, the day before the wedding, I received information that showed that he had been fucking most of the women in Seattle, but, even worse, he planned to, once he took over my family business, break it up and sell it off.”
“So you just ran away?” Edward asked, shocked by her confession. Their situations were eerily similar.
Bella turned and looked at Edward. “No, I showed my family, his family, and our business contacts just what type of man he truly was by showing them a video my best friend’s husband put together.”
“When did you show the video?”
“During the wedding.”
“FUCK!” Edward gasped.
“So fucking glad I didn’t fuck him. The number of diseases running through him is unbelievable.”
“How long had you two dated?” Edward questioned since she said she hadn’t fucked him.
“Over two years.”
Edward was stunned. “Why didn’t you fuck him? I mean you didn’t know about the other women.”
“At first, it was because I wasn’t ready, then I was so busy with work I didn’t have the time. He tried, but something deep inside of me told me to resist. It is not like I was saving myself for our wedding night; shit, I really wanted to experience that connection between two people, but not with him,” Bella explained dropping her head. For the first time since finding out about Jacob and his betrayal, she allowed her hardened exterior to break and tears began to run down her cheeks.
Without a second thought, Edward jumped to his feet and came over to Bella. Placing his fingers under her chin, he lifted it up and his heart broke when he saw the tears. “Don’t cry over him; he is not worth it,” Edward said, wrapping his arms around her and pulling her close. But, at that moment, something happened: he felt a warm tingly feeling in every cell of his body. Never had he felt anything like it before, however, he had heard about it from his Mom.
Esme had invited him over to lunch one day after he and Victoria had announced their engagement. “Edward, darling, come in,” Esme said, welcoming him at the door. “I have set up lunch on the deck. I think we both could use some natural vitamin D.”
“Sounds great, Mom,” Edward said kissing her on the cheek.
They enjoyed a delicious lunch and small talk. When they were finished, Edward patted Esme on the hand and gave her one of his crooked smiles. “Let’s cut the bullshit and you tell me what this was all about.”
“Edward, I just wanted to spend some time with you.”
“Mom, stop lying to me; tell me what you wanted to say.”
“Fine, what do you feel with Victoria?” Esme asked.
“I love her, that is why we are getting married,” Edward answered.
“What do you feel when you hold her hand, have her in your arms?”
“Feel? I told you I love her,” Edward said, confused by the question.
Esme took Edward’s hand in hers. “When I first saw your father, I thought he was the most gorgeous man in the world, however, it was when we first touched that my soul realized that he was my everything.”
“I don’t understand.”
“When we touched, I felt this warmth that filled my every cell. You must know what I am talking about because you are in love,” Esme pointed out.
“Yes, Mom,” Edward said, but her words made him for a moment question his feelings.
Bella didn’t know what was happening to her. One moment she was crying over a man she didn’t care for, then the next moment she was wrapped in the arms of a man she had just met and didn’t want him to let her go. This was crazy.
Edward didn’t want to let her go, but he didn’t want to scare her either. “I understand more than you know,” he confessed.
Bella pulled back and looked up at those emerald eyes that she couldn’t get enough of. “What do you mean?”
“Come let’s sit down and I will tell you the reason why I am in the middle of nowhere.”
Instead of the chairs they were sitting in, they went over to the small couch and sat facing each other. Edward explained his relationship with Victoria and James, then what happened when he received the evidence of their betrayal.
“What happened to them?” Bella asked.
“I don’t know. My family was going to take care of them. They didn’t want me to be in the middle of the firestorm that was about to come down. Many of the five hundred guests were business associates and my family didn’t want me to lose face with them.”
“What type of business do you own?” Bella asked.
“I have my hands in a little bit of everything from construction to import/export. What type of business are you in?”
“Funny but the same. This is going sound crazy but I don’t know your last name,” Bella chuckled.
“Cullen. I run Cullen International.”
“Ha, you are Edward Cullen of Cullen International! I am I.M. Swan of Swan International; we have been trying to get together for a few months now for a deal,” Bella laughed.
“Oh, my God, what a small world. I wanted to meet with you yesterday, but you were out of the area. Well, now I know why.”
“It must be fate that we are here together in this cabin,” Bella deducted.
“Fate? Fate. That is what the courier said when she delivered the package with all the evidence against Victoria and James. Before she left she said that Fate sometimes knows best,” Edward said, then took Bella hand. “Do you believe that Fate knows best?”
“Before all this, I would have said no, but I can’t deny this or this thing that is happening between us.”
“You feel it also?”
“Yes, very much so,” Bella confessed.
Edward leaned forward, wanting to know what those full lips tasted like. As he neared, he watched as her pink little tongue licked them wet. As their lips met, his heart was so full of love that he thought it would burst from his chest. Then, he felt her tongue as it pushed on his lips, wanting entrance into his mouth, which he gladly gave. All too soon they were both out of air and had to break apart, gasping.
“WOW!” Edward exclaimed.
“Yeah, WOW!” Bella confirmed.
Edward cupped Bella’s cheek, which she leaned into. “Bella Swan, where have you been all my life?”
“On the other side of the country, but I think someone up there wanted us together,” Bella explained.
“Well, we can’t disappoint them, now can we?” Edward murmured.
“No, we can’t.”
“This is the best Christmas ever,” Edward announced as he stood up and reached out for Bella’s hand.
Placing her hand in his, she stood up beside him. “Why don’t we go back to bed and celebrate some Christmas cheer?”
“Damn, woman, I love the way you think,” Edward exclaimed as he picked her up and took off running to the bed.
Fate was so happy with how Edward and Bella were together. “Cupid, we did great.”
“Yeah, that was fun. Maybe we can work together in the future?” Cupid asked.
“I think that might be fun, but I must go check on my sister. She was going to make sure Jacob, Victoria, and James get what they deserve.” Fate said.
“Damn, Karma is a real bitch,” Cupid declared.
“That she is,” Fate laughed. “Merry Christmas, Cupid. May you always have Fate and Karma on your side.”
