Emily's Pov:

"My birthday ended three hours ago. Its way past midnight, Mr Jones!"

Edward's face fell comically. His smile turned into a frown.

I was sad seeing Edward's face full of guilt upon hearing that my birthday ended and he didn't even get to wish me. I tried to convince him that it wasn't his fault and that I was happy spending time with him but he didn't look much convinced.

He nodded meekly before rushing upstairs to change after we settled on the matter that he wouldn't cook, as we didn't want him to endanger our health.

I went to pick up the lilies and roses which were scattered on the floor, half wilted, half disintegrated. I selected the ones which were still intact to put them on vase filled with water and the rest I had to throw in the dustbin.

I really didn't like the thought of throwing someone's gift in the dustbin, especially of Edward's, so I settled on burying them in soil.

I boiled some water, cut some fresh vegetables only to stir fry them, sprinkling some spices and salt in the pan. I prepared a quick ramen for us, calling Edward to come and eat. I placed two bowls on the table, some fruits and water after putting my own previous dinner aside.

We were in comfortable silence, eating our meal when I heard Edward chuckling. I looked up to see him staring at my previous meal, or should I say my diet food.

"You were eating grasses? On your birthday? Since when, 'cause the last time I checked you had this weird habit of eating like an elephant!" he said, his hands on his stomach, laughing out loudly this time.

"When did I eat like that?" I said, pouting at his comment, glaring, making him laugh like a maniac.

"No seriously Emi, you were munching on vegetables, what about meat? That's why you always fall or slip because you are as weak as a pigeon!" he said, this time fake chuckling to himself, his hands draped over his mouth.

I glared at him, throwing my salad consisting of spinach, cabbage, tomato and cheese at him. Now it was my turn to laugh when he grudgingly removed the strips of spinach and wiped himself with a napkin.

"You're not getting any now!" he said, pulling a container of ramen towards him, eating in front of me like a co

and hug them to sleep. I am going!"

"Wait, where are you going? Won't you sleep with me tonight?" Like seriously, his level of insensitivity!

"Do you know you have this really wild habit people call 'cuddling'?" I teased him, expecting for some comeback.

But it didn't come. Instead, I saw his head hung low in shame. Wow?

"Well yeah! I have. That's why Lara doesn't let me stay at her house. She doesn't like cuddling. I am sorry if that was uncomfortable for you!" he said, pouting at me.

Isn't he doing it on purpose?!

But it is cute!

"I don't actually mind, but-" I was cut off by my own shriek when he lifted me suddenly, plopping me on the bed and snuggled close to me, his hot breath fanning my neck.

What the hell just happened?

I shifted in my position only to be pulled back on his hard chest, his arms wrapping protectively around me.

"Remind me again the exact time when I agreed to this cuddling thing!"

No response.

I kicked his leg which was slowly draping over my waist earning a grunt from him. I tried to glare at his face which was all too difficult when I was forcefully pressed against him.

"Edward, I can't sleep!" I said, churning in my side, finding it difficult to sleep.

He loosened his grip on me and I tried to escape when he grabbed my arm, pulled me little closer to him.

"You can sleep as well as breath now, " he murmured.

I sighed and went back to sleep, knowing that fighting was a futile thing for me.
