Emily's POV:

The exclusive journey to our home was much more comfortable, sitting on a comfy seat of an air-conditioned VEYRON after a long agitating day in those ill-fitting heels. But it was equally more awkward sitting beside Edward who was busy on his phone, texting someone with so much hardness I could hear his fingers making firm contact with his poor expensive phone. He didn't talk to me after our little argument at that shop, now only making slow nods and dull 'hmm' at all my questions.

We reached home about half an hour later. It was already past two hours midnight and I just wanted to get out of this tight short dress. For once, we didn't have to pretend and I was thankful for my idea that Linda wouldn't dare to follow newlyweds to the bedroom.

"You can wash up first, I am a little tired so I'll just take my time removing these accessories from my hair for now, " I motioned Edward to the washroom, who was a little slow with his steps, maybe tired from his infuriating date.

Well, that was my first date also. So I tried to be as good as I could, but no matter how I thought about it, I could sense something had changed between us overnight and it was not a good change.

We had our pretty little fights in our twenty-five years of friendship, some were serious and some a mere trifle and the fights which we had tonight couldn't even stand a chance against them. They were so small in comparison.

And so precise and illogical!

But still, these little fights, I could sense, had already changed a lot for us.

"What was that?" I stopped midway in opening the clips on my hair to see Edward pacing in the room, with his arms crossed across his chest, front buttons undone, his tie hanging loose and sleeves folded upwards.

I almost lost my control to run over and wrap my legs around his waist but I bit my lips to refrain myself from doing anything illegal. He is a married man, for God's sake!

And you're his wife, madam!

"What? I said you can use the washroom first and-"

He raised his hand, waving it once to stop my blabbering.

"I know what you said earlier. I have a better long term memory for a man. But not that! What did you do at that shop?"

I was confused. What did he mean by...

Oh, that!

"Yes. I specifically remember a guy named George asking me out and I, as a kind person we both know I am, agreed to it happily! You were there, Eddie! Don't you remember? Don't tell me you forgot!" I pulled the clip holding my hair out and in a second, brown curls of wavering hue fell on my shoulders, cascading my face and features.

"I know what you did there Emily, I am asking for an explanation and a sensible one at that!"

Oh, so he's angry now, skipping to my first full name now!!

I turned around to look at him, seeing his eyes widening a little at my full-length hair. I flipped them one side, my hands this time on my earrings to unhook them.

"Well, what type of explanation do you want? Don't you know that when a guy asks a girl out, it means he is interested in her and when a girl replies with a yes, it means she is ready to be interested in him! It's simple and cool as a cucumber, Eddie!"

I heard him take a deep breath, his fingers forming in fists before he hit the wall with so much intensity, I jumped from my spot to stare wide-eyed at him.

What the heck!

"I am not asking for your witty explanation, Emi! Tell me why did you say yes to that damn excuse of a man?"

"Why shouldn't I say yes to that man, Edward? You tell me! One plausible reason. Just one logical reason and I'll call that man right now to reject him at this same spot right in front of you!"

A look of surprise passed his eyes as if he never thought that type of questi

I am ready to stand still like a gentleman while you remove your clothes if that's the way you won't go out with that piece of shit!"

At first, I thought he was joking but when I looked at his eyes clearly, he was damn serious as an AIDS report!

What? Did he seriously mean I would...

Immediately, hot wet liquid gushed out of my genitals, wetting my panties at the thought of Edward looking at me naked while I give him a striptease. And thinking that maybe he joins me in my little tease made me rub my bare thighs subconsciously.

I was looking at the ground purely with embarrassment.

"I... erm. I didn't mean it literally. I just said it out of rage! Forget we ever had the conversation as stupid as this!"

Grabbing my towel, I rushed to the washroom when I felt a hand wrap around my wrist. I wanted to groan loudly in sexual frustration but I held it in.

"So you won't go out with him then?"

I took a sharp breath to calm my raging hormones.

"Now what? Eddie?"

"I just wanted to make sure-"

"What the hell, Edward! You can go out with Lara but I can't go out with a man? Why? What did I ever do wrong to you? Tell me!"

"I just don't want you to leave me! Ever!"

I looked at him only to find naked truth staring back at me and it felt as if someone had slapped me. I was touched deep in my soul.

"I understand, Eddie, but someday, I need to go and live my own life! I can't just go on being your fake wife my whole life? And besides, our marriage is just for two years. You can give me the reason for being your wife to stop me from dating but after two years, I am gonna have to do everything, Edward!"

"I don't know anything! We're supposed to be best friends, Lily and best friends don't leave each other just because they found the one they love!"

Well, well. Look at who's talking!

"Edward, I need a man who would love me, take care of me, would laugh with me, cry with me, would listen to all that I have to say, can't eat a meal if I wasn't able to make him one and would be happy just by looking at me, " my voice turned soft, "I want a man to need me, to want me, as if he would die if he didn't tell me how was his day! I want him to look out for me to, be it in his happiness or his deadly sorrows, " I whispered softly, my eyes filled with unshed tears.

"I do all that! What else-"

"As a woman, Edward! As his woman!" I raised my finger to make my point clear before gripping towel tightly and walked straight to the washroom.
