Chapter Twenty-One

So, none of this is mine. I wrote the first chapter for a contest and now, I'm expanding it. What I own ... a condo and too many books. What I don't ... Twilight and all its characters.

Cliffhanger, kids. A smexy one. Suffice it to say, next chapter will start with a lemon and get you closer to the wedding and to the climax of the story ... I pray you all stay with me during that. It's going to be bloody and angsty. I'm giving you a violence warning now. Just saying ...

Chapter Twenty-One


We walked to the condo and rang the doorbell. Demetri opened the door, trying to keep a very drunk Jessica from sucking off his face. "You couldn't have come at a better time," he said, his eyes wide.

"Dude, you can kill a man with a single finger but you can't handle a single female?" Emmett teased. Demetri gave him a glower. Jessica was suctioned on him, holding onto him like a limpet, nibbling his ear. "Never mind. She's ..."

"She thought I was a stripper," Demetri growled. "She cupped my junk. Ugh!"

"I'm sorry, Demetri," I said sympathetically, barely able to hide my smile. He rolled his eyes. "Where's my mother and my fiancée?"

"Finalizing their purchases with Bree," he answered, extracting Jessica's arms from his body. "Miss Stanley, as flattering as your affections are, I'm ..." He couldn't finish as she kissed him, her legs locking around his waist. We all fell over in hysterics as Bella and my mom came up from the basement, holding large pink shopping bags. Bella looked sober enough, but my mom was a little blitzed. She teetered over to my father and kissed him deeply, plunging her tongue down his throat.

"Get your freak on, Esme," Bella encouraged. Mom smiled wickedly, tugging on my dad's hand and dragging him out of the condo. Demetri managed to break free from Jessica and followed them. Jake blocked her from trying to catch up. He was the new object of her affections, but he wasn't nearly as fazed as Demetri. He stood tall and unmoving as a stone. "Alice is almost finished, baby."

"Oooh, Alice bought something?" Jasper asked, his brows waggling.

"You'll find out soon enough, Mr. Impatient," Bella chided. She hugged Lauren. "Thank you for this. It was nice to have a girl's night in. And the advice ... hmmmm ... perfection."

"You going to use some of it tonight?" she asked.

"I think I might," Bella purred, staring at me. When Alice came up, we all got into the SUV. I was curious what was going to happen with Jessica, but Bella's hungry gaze at me held my attention and that was all that mattered.

The drive home was too long. Alice and Jasper were flirting and Bella was just holding my hand, smiling softly and idly tracing the veins on my hand. Jake dropped off Alice and Jasper before pulling into our house. With a smile, he bid us goodnight. Bella went to the refrigerator and took out a bottle of water. I went to peak into the pink bag. Bella looked at me, her eyes fiery. "Mr. Cullen, you've been a naughty student. Passing notes in class. Cheating on a test and trying to catch a glimpse down a girl's blouse," she growled. "You have a detention, sir. Though, you're awfully dirty. You have ten minutes to shower and dress in the clothes I put out on your bed. Then, we will dispense your punishment."

I blinked, shocked at her cold demeanor. But her eyes were twinkling with promise. With a crooked grin, I replied, "Yes, Miss Swan."


Edward went up the stairs and I took a deep breath. Swiping the bag, I changed into my 'costume' in the bathroom on the main floor. It was a sexy teacher costume with a grey pencil skirt and black vest. Bree included white blouse, but I removed my bra and let my breasts free above the vest. I did, however, slide on the argyle knee socks and a pair of black shoes. Tousling my hair, I put on a pair of glasses and scurried up our bedroom.
