Lack of Color Teaser - Chapter 26

I know, it's been a while since I posted here, but RL has been super busy as of late. Here's a little teaser to tide you over until I post next, which should be on Friday. Enjoy!

“Oh good, you’re finally awake,” I heard the soft voice of Edward’s mother state as I looked to the chair to my left and sure enough, there she sat with her husband Carlisle, a very handsome salt & pepper haired man, standing behind her.

I had met him on the very first night I met the entire family, but he hadn’t been very vocal, choosing to let his family drama go down without his input. He seemed nice enough in the few other occasions I had seen him. I nudged Edward with my elbow, but instead of moving, he just clung to me tighter and buried his face into the crook of my neck. It was almost like he was afraid to let me go, and believe me, the feeling was mutual. In fact, if his parents weren’t standing mere feet away, I’d probably try to go back to sleep.

“Um... Edward... your mother and father are here.” I said again as I nudged him once more and he finally seemed to stir. Unfortunately, he also proceeded to rub himself against my ass as his mother coughed loudly, trying to wake him further.

“Clearly, there’s a lot of things we need to discuss,” Esme said simply as Edward’s eyes shot open and he abruptly let go of me and I tumbled to the floor as he sat up quickly, clearly freaked out. I rubbed at my now sore elbow as Edward looked at me in shock.
