Chapter 18.2: Throw Back Thursday.
Cullen walked slowly towards them. Emily searched
his face intently trying not to hope too much. He could simply have
stopped by to let her know he was leaving.
"Can you forgive me, Emily?" he finally asked softly, stopping a few feet from the dais.
heart soared as she saw the love blazing from his eyes. She cried out
and flew down the steps, launching herself into his arms.
Cullen" she whispered. "I will always forgive you, no matter what. I've
told you this time and time again. Perhaps this time you will believe
me, my husband?"
Cullen tightened his arms around her, his hand
coming to stroke her face tenderly. "The demons are gone, Emily, every
last one of them. This time I can truly believe in everything, my love."
Neither of them saw Janick slip quietly from the room. Their eyes were locked together, drowning deeply in each other's soul.
"You'll stay forever this time, Cullen?" Emily asked softly, a note of uncertainty in her voice.
my Emily," he said, his voice thick with emotion. "I never want to be
apart from you again, love. It hurts too much. I should have come home a
long time ago, Emily. I wanted to, every day I wanted to come home to
you but something intangible was holding me back. Elizabeth unlocked the
doors to my demons and suddenly they all seemed to have just melted
"I've missed you terribly, Cullen," she whispered. "I knew I
had to let you go, that it was the only way you could battle your
demons before you could come home to me. But it was so very hard, my
"I know, Emily," Cullen sighed. "Hurting you was the last
thing I ever wanted to do, love. And yet, I just seemed to keep doing it
over and over again. I've hated myself so much knowing that you were
here alone and in pain."
Emily pulled away from him and put a few steps between them.
"I kissed Janick," she confessed quietly.
He gave her a small smile. "Would that have been the night you first called to me?" he asked softly.
"You knew?" she gasped in surprise.
knew something had upset you greatly, love," he said gently. "Something
that wounded you so badly you couldn't stop yourself reaching out to
me. It's all right, Emily. I'm not angry or upset that you kissed him.
He was here for you when I wasn't. I had left you hanging for so long.
It was inevitable that something like that would occur."
so guilty, Cullen, that I would let another man kiss me and hold me as
you once had," she whispered, her expression tortured. "I loved you so
much and yet I allowed myself to consider the possibility of being with
"It certainly gave me a wake up call," he smiled
ruefully. "I was coming home, Emily. I may have been taking my time
about it but I was coming home to you from that night when I learned
that Janick loved you. I knew that if I left it much longer there was a
chance you would not be waiting for me when I finally made my decision."
"But you were so angry with me when I summoned you," she said shocked by his admission. "You said you were going to divorce me."
was still fighting hard against your pull, love," he admitted with a
rueful smile. "I was trying so hard to deny that I couldn't be without
you a moment longer. I was coming home but all the demons were still
intact. I think I knew deep down that if I did come home it would surely
have destroyed us because I couldn't trust in myself still which meant I
couldn't trust in you."
"And now?" Emily asked, a lingering doubt
still in her eyes. "Can you trust in the both of us? Can you love both
Emily and your Princess?"
Cullen crossed the distance between them
and pulled her back into his embrace. "With all my heart, love," he
whispered, his eyes shining with unshed tears. "My Princess has the most
generous loving heart for her people. She has cried many nights in deep
sorrow so our people could be united and safe. She sacrifices greatly
for the good of all, perhaps too much sometimes, but it is always with
the best of intentions. How could I not love a ruler such as she?"
He kissed her softly, a chaste kiss which tugged at her heart.
for my Emily, there has never been a moment since I met her that I
haven't loved her," he breathed against her lips. "From the first
instance when I saw you standing beside that buffet table in Arthur
Belmont's house I loved you. Your beautiful hair was like a living flame
under the lights that night. Without even knowing who you were I was
pulled across the room to you. I never stood a chance against you, my
Emily felt tears of joy fall down her face. She pressed
her lips to his, sighing softly as he coaxed her lips to part and kissed
her with agonising tenderness.
"I swear I'll never leave again,
love," Cullen groaned softly. "I'll do everything in my power to earn
your trust again, my wife."
"I've always trusted you, Cullen,"
Emily sighed. "I've always loved you. It was you who always doubted
yourself, my love. With that now gone we can finally spend eternity
She kissed him again, with more urgency, her body
flaming with need to be close to him. To feel him love her body as well
as her mind. He pressed restlessly against her, his own need flaring up,
trying to consume him. He tore his mouth away from her and groaned
deeply. "We can't do this here," he laughed ruefully. "Anyone could walk
She grabbed his hand and pulled him into the little
antechamber and locked the door behind them. She kissed him feverishly,
her hands tugging at his shirt.
"Whatever would the King think if
he knew what you were doing in his waiting room?" Cullen chuckled, his
own hands unbuttoning her top to free her beautiful breasts to his
"Cullen, shut up and make love to me," she ground out and then moaned as his thumbs ran over the hardened peaks of her breasts.
"Yes, my Princess," he whispered hoarsely, lifting her up so his mouth could suckle against her breast.
moaned again, her breath coming out in quick pants as her need soared.
"Oh God, Cullen, I can't wait," she said desperately.
She felt his
hand push her skirt around her hips and then rip the panties from her
body. He sucked hard on her breast as he released himself from his jeans
and then pulled her down until her tight tunnel was sliding over his
rigid cock until he was buried deep inside her.
Emily cried out as
their bodies joined together. Cullen caught her cry with his mouth, his
own deep groan being smothered by their lips. He pushed her up against
the wall and moved deep inside her, taking her with long, hard strokes.
clung onto his shoulders and wrapped her legs around his waist. She
kissed him feverishly as he thrust up again and again, taking her hard
and fast as their need for one another consumed them.
Emily, I've missed you so much," Cullen said hoarsely. "I've missed
being inside you like this. You feel so good wrapped around me, love."
He punctuated his words with fiery kisses and she moaned loudly with every hot, hard thrust deep inside her body.
"Take me, Cullen," she moaned. "Take me hard and fast. Make me yours again. Take me to heaven, my love."
growled and ravished her mouth as he thrust harder into her. He was out
of control, his need for her so bad he didn't know if he could hold on
long enough for her to achieve her own pleasure. He slid a hand between
their bodies and found her clit.
"Come for me, Emily," he said through clenched teeth. "Come soon because I can't hold back, love. I need you too much."
He rubbed against her clit with his fingers as his body surged hard into hers over and over again.
Emily was moaning continuously, bucking against him wildly, the breath rasping out her throat.
Oh God, Cullen!" she screamed as her body suddenly shattered in waves
of incredible pleasure. She could hear him crying out her name as if
from a distance as he shuddered against her and she felt the hot sticky
wetness of his release bathe her insides.
Cullen leaned against her, his head pressed into the curve of her neck
as his entire body trembled in little aftershocks from the intense
orgasm he has just had. He could feel Emily trembling against him, her
own breathing erratic and her heart thundering.
"Dear God, Emily, I've never felt anything as intense as that before," he whispered.
"The earth certainly moved for me," she laughed softly, her body still trembling.
He lowered her gently to the floor, afraid to move away from her body.
think I may have made a bit of a mess," he said sheepishly. "It has
been so long since I've lain with you. I think rather a lot of my seed
has been spilled this night."
Emily laughed and rolled her eyes.

the Princess of Vampires is going to have to walk through the common
room hoping and praying that no one notices that her husband's love for
her is slowly dripping down her thighs?"
"Oh God, Emily, I'm
sorry," he groaned. "I shouldn't have gotten so carried away. Maybe we
could tie your panties somehow?" he asked hopefully.
harder until tears were rolling down her face. "Oh, this is so
priceless," she finally gasped when she could stop laughing. He moved
away from her and she grabbed her torn panties and cleaned herself as
best she could.
Cullen rolled his eyes and laughed, taking the
ruined underwear and stuffing it in his pocket. "The next time we wait
until we're safely behind closed doors," he grumbled, still laughing.
"Is that an order, my husband? she teased gently, her eyes shining.
"It is, my Princess," he laughed, pulling her up and buttoning her top back up. He groaned softly.
"What?" she asked.
"You look like you've just been tumbled very energetically by your husband," he admitted with a sheepish grin.
because I just have been," she laughed, trying to straighten her hair.
"Oh well, there's nothing else for it. My appearance will just have to
do. Come on."
All eyes turned to them as they entered the common room. Emily stifled a groan as she saw lips twitching as she walked passed.
first one who says anything is going to be very sorry," she whispered
quietly to Cullen who had an arm wrapped tightly around her waist.
"I'll lay money on Liam being the only one brave enough while we're still in the room," Cullen whispered back.
Emily was glad she didn't take that bet when Liam called out loudly. "I take it this means the divorce is off?"
Cullen laughed and swooped Emily up in his arms as she shot daggers at Liam and made to move towards him.

does love our Liam and she would be most distressed if I allowed her to
take his head from his shoulders."
The room dissolved into
laughter as Alice hurriedly complied with Cullen's request and Emily
groaned and buried her head in his neck as her face flamed with
"I'm so embarrassed," she groaned as Cullen dropped
her onto the bed coming down to lie beside her. "I don't know why
you're grinning so much."
"It's a male pride thing," he chuckled.
"I find myself basking in the glory of having every other man in that
room know that you are mine and I have come home to stake my claim on
Emily rolled her eyes and tried not to smile at his open
smugness. "Every man or one particular man?" she asked, arching an
eyebrow at him.
He looked at her sheepishly, "Okay, maybe one
particular man," he admitted, his tone rueful. "I'm sorry, I can't help
it. I know Janick has been a great comfort to you, love, but he wants
what is mine. I can't really blame him for that because you are a prize
worth having. But you are my prize and no one else's."
Emily shook her head, a small smile on her lips. "Next you'll be pissing on my leg to mark your territory," she groaned.
threw back his head and laughed loudly. "I believe it was another
bodily fluid I used, my love," he said against her mouth, sliding his
tongue deep inside her parted lips to taste her sweetness.
wrapped her arms around him and returned his kiss. "Okay, I give you
this one time and one time only, husband," she laughed. "You have
declared your ownership publicly. Now you will behave with decorum when
we are in public and not embarrass me like that again."
"As my Princess commands," he chuckled and kissed her again until she moaned and rubbed against him.
lay back and pulled her on top of him. "I want you again, wife," he
groaned. "I have been too long without your sweet loving. I need you."
laughed and stood up and stripped off her clothing. She flew back to
the bed, relieving him of his clothes too and then straddling his body
to slide down on his hard cock.
They took their time this time,
savouring the feel of their bodies moving together. Emily rode his body
in long, slow, passionate movements as he let her set the pace of their

from me," Cullen whispered softly. He cupped her ass with his hands,
easing her up and down his hard length. "Ride me, wife. Take your
Emily moaned and moved slightly faster against his
body, her hands on his chest. She slid her hands slowly down to his hips
and gripped him tightly as she moved on him, increasing the tempo in
slow increments, building the fire between them slowly.
Emily, you're driving me insane," Cullen groaned through clenched teeth,
thrusting deep inside her as she slid down on him. "Faster, love," he
begged as his need began to spiral out of control.

breath coming out in short gasps as her pleasure began to build more
"Yes," Cullen groaned, moving faster beneath her, his
hands coming to her hips to guide her movements. "Take me, Emily, hard

wildly as she felt her orgasm begin to crash over her in wave after wave
of sweet pleasure, her cries coming together in one long wail of
Cullen thrust deep within her and roared his pleasure as
his seed once more boiled from his balls and erupted deep inside his
wife's body. He jerked rhythmically against her until the sweet pleasure
passed and she fell forward on top of him, his arms automatically
holding her close to him. He peppered her face with hot kisses as she
came down from the high of her own release.
"I love you, Emily," he whispered tenderly, stroking his hand up and down her back in long, loving strokes.
"I love you, Cullen," she whispered, burying her face in his neck and kissing and licking at his sweat covered skin.
hope you don't have any plans on sleeping tonight, love," Cullen
chuckled softly. "I intend to spend the rest of the night making love to
you until you're too exhausted to move. I have so much lost loving to
make up for."
"Your Princess is in perfect agreement with you this
one time, husband," she laughed huskily. "You have her permission to
abuse her body all night long."
Cullen laughed and pulled her up
from the bed. "I think a shower is called for and then some sustenance
so we have sufficient strength to carry out the wondrous task we have
assigned ourselves tonight."
He pulled her into the bathroom and
started the shower. They kissed and then they were under the hot spray
and Cullen's helpfulness at ensuring she was thoroughly washed turned
into something else and before she knew it he was taking her again
against the tiled wall, his hot, hard body thrusting deep inside her as
the water poured over them.
His passion was hot and full of need.
He took her hard and she revelled in the roughness of his touch on her
skin. He turned her and entered her from behind, thrusting deep and hard
as he pressed her against the tiles, his hand coming between her legs
to rub against her clit roughly and drive her mad with the need to come.
baby," he groaned. "Come on my cock. Let me feel your hot, wet tunnel
grip my cock hard as your body shakes with pleasure."
words, deft fingers and throbbing hard cock tipped her over the edge and
she was engulfed in pleasure as her orgasm shuddered through her. He
answered her passion with his own hoarse cry as he bucked into her,
pouring his seed deep within her body, his mouth feverishly moving over
her shoulder as they came in unison.
"Now you have to wash me all over again," Emily laughed when he pulled away from her and she turned round to look at him.

someone has to do it," he smiled and then picked up the soap and began
to get on with the task.
Cullen had not been joking. She'd no

on the bed, kissing her back slowly, his mouth moving over every inch of
her skin. He massaged her ass and kissed each cheek thoroughly before

She moaned and writhed on the bed as his tongue breached her
tight ring and began to slide in and out leisurely. He finally moved

driving her wild with his hot touch. He slid an arm underneath her to
hold her waist and raised her body up. He brought a finger to her and
slowly eased it into her tight ring. She cried out as he penetrated her
body and then slowly thrust the finger in and out. The sensation was

penetration. He eased her open gently and tenderly until he could slide

and moved back against his fingers, wanting more. He began to take her
ass forcefully, grinding his fingers deep inside her tight hole as she

at his wickedness. The hand around her waist moved to her clit and he
rubbed roughly as his fingers worked her ass hard.

her higher and higher until she was crying out her pleasure once more,
coming hard from the sheer eroticism of what he was doing to her body.
soothed her down by kissing slowly up her back and then he turned her
over. He was smiling as he looked into her flushed face. "I think you
liked my fingers in your ass, wife," he chuckled. "It brought all manner
of wicked ideas to my head. I think I may have to feel what your sweet
little ass feels like around my hard cock."
Emily sucked in a deep breath at the lust she saw on her husband's face.
"Not tonight, wife," he laughed again when he saw her expression. "But soon, sweet Emily, when you least expect."
