Bella sipped her wine and set the glass back onto the coffee table, as Edward reached over and gently moved some hair from the nape of her neck, laying a gentle kiss there before beginning to massage her lightly. She sighed and leaned into his touch, the tension slowly dissipated from her body. She groaned softly, causing him to chuckle.
"Does that feel good?" he asked huskily.
"Yes," she moaned as his fingers kneaded a particularly stubborn muscle knot, "it's been a long day."
"I'm sorry," he murmured.
She pulled away and turned her body to face him, smiling. "I didn't mean it negatively. Yes, it was a long day, but it was the most fun I've had in years. Thank you for traipsing me around Seattle."
He smiled shyly and tucked her hair behind her ear. "Thank you for letting me traipse you around Seattle. And agreeing to stay the night here with me." He cupped her cheek, kissing her softly. As he began to move away, she reached for his tie and pulled him back, grazing her lips across his cheek and running her nose along his own.
"Not so fast, Cullen. You called the shots all day, it's my turn now."
