“That’s what I figured you would say,” Eric teased. “We’re going to tighten up security for a little while.”

“Do you think our marriage is going to cause problems for the film?”

He shook his head. “No, I think the opposite will be true. A lot of people are dying to see the chemistry between the two of you. Plus you are an extraordinary actress and Edward is one hell of an actor. Teenage girls are not going to control your fates.”

“I hope you’re right,” she sighed.

“Don’t worry about it, that’s my job. You just enjoy this time. I know the filming is going to cut into your honeymoon, but I want you to relax and enjoy this time with Edward before the babies come,” Eric said.

Dana kissed his cheek. “Thank you, Eric.”

“You’re welcome, sweetheart,” Eric said, moving her quicker to match the new song.


Edward’s tongue explored her mouth as he pushed her dress off. His clothes were already discarded in a trail leading from the kitchen to their bedroom. His fingers reached into her panties and ripped them clean from her body.

Dana chuckled against his mouth. “Baby, we have all night. Your parents have the kids for the entire week.” She gasped as he pushed her onto the bed.

She moved up the bed towards the headboard. Edward climbed onto the bed and crawled slowly towards her. “You are so beautiful, Dana." He shook his head in disbelief. "I can’t believe you’re my wife. I’m so lucky.”

“I’m the lucky one,” she said tenderly, taking his hand and gently pulling him towards her until he hovered over her.

He looked down at her, stunned. She’d said yes, to him! A fact he didn’t take for granted.

Her hand came up and gently ran through his hair. “So, are you planning on making love to your wife?” She wiggled her eyebrows up at him, making him chuckle.


Edward kissed Dana deeply as his hands ran over her back until they came to her a*s. He gently squeezed her bottom, moving his hands up so he could wrap his arms around her.

Dana broke their kiss. “I just wanted to let you know that I’ve never done anything like this before,” she stammered. “I’ve never done this before.”

He chuckled softly. “You’ve never had sex in stranger’s bedroom at a party before?”

“Well…..no, I’ve never done that before either, but I was referring to-” she stopped and gasped as Edward kissed and licked her neck greedily as his hands worked at removing her bra. “Wow, you’re really good at that,” she gasped.

“You were saying…,” he prompted as he worked his mouth down between her br**sts.

“Yes,” she moaned and shook her head, trying to stay focused. “I meant I’ve never slept with a guy I just met before.” Her hands ran through his hair as he kissed her br**sts.

“It’s okay. I won’t tell if you won’t,” he said softly as he moved down her stomach.

“Oh my god, I can’t believe I’m doing this. My friends dragged me here tonight, it was supposed to be a way to relax,” she rambled on nervously.

“I’ll help you relax, baby, just give me a chance,” Edward said as his fingers worked the clasp on her skirt. He pulled it off revealing white panties.

“I…I don’t doubt that it’s just that….hell, I have a fiancé…..well, maybe an ex-fiancé I’m not sure exactly….”

Edward moved back up her body and held himself up by his elbows. He sighed. “Well, which is it?”

She looked like she was thinking it over. “I’m really not sure.”

“Well, perhaps I can help you out. Why don’t you tell me what happened.”

“Okay.” She shrugged lightly. “My boyfriend Jason and I have been together for three years. This is our last week before the wedding. Well, it was supposed to be, but now I’m not sure if there’s going to be a wedding.”

“I see.” Edward nodded. “What changed?”

“He sat me down last night and explained that he owed it me to take a week to think things over and sow his oats. He said it would be selfish to make a commitment to me when he had other things he needed to do before he met me at the altar.”

He stared at her like she was slow. She snorted. “I’m not an idiot. Trust me I know the jackass is off getting laid right now. The only thing I’m not sure about is if I’m going to forgive him." She sighed warily. "I probably won’t.”

“Hmmm.” Edward moved a strand of hair away from her face. “So, basically you’re here to cheat on him to make the two of you even before you face him in a week?” he surmised.

“Yes, does that bother you? I’m sorry it must seem like I’m using you,” she said.

He nodded. “Yes, but I’m fine with that.” He kissed her slowly before she turned her face away.

“Wait, what about you? Do you..um, do this a lot?” she asked.

He chuckled. “No, I don’t usually sleep with woman I’m not dating. But I find myself in a similar predicament.”

“Oh, your girlfriend asked you for a break, too?” she asked as she kissed his neck.

“Not exactly.” Dana pulled back to look at him.

“What do you mean by ‘not exactly’?” She narrowed her eyes on him.

He gave her a crooked smile. “She’s kind of down stairs right now.”

“What?!” Dana pushed him off the bed and crossed her arms over her chest as she stumbled off the bed and fell to the floor. She quickly recovered before he could help her.

His hands went up. “Whoa, let me explain.”

She blew a strand of hair out of her face. “I’m listening.”

“This is her house. I dumped her two weeks ago when I realized we weren’t heading in the right direction. I told her I wanted to be friends. So, she invited me here tonight and stupid me I accepted the invitation hoping we could be friends, but she had other plans in mind."

“What plans?” she asked cautiously.

“Like plans of letting me know she’s been sleeping with my best friend for a year,” he said, shrugging sheepishly.

“Oh wow, I’m so sorry…umm.” She couldn’t’ remember his name.

“Cale,” he said.

“Cale, I’m really sorry that must be awful.”
