We are progressing quite nicely aren't we? Without much blabbing from me, other than gloating that I got my copy of Fifty Shades of Grey today, let's get into these chapters.
Chapter 39 Edward's POV
The kids are done playing in the snow and have a nice family dinner. Edward is still flipping out over the secrets his father and Esme are keeping. But we are lucky and know a bit about what's going on from Carlisle's POV last chapter. [Side Note: Which made me bawl like a baby.] Esme basically admitted to Edward that he isn't being slick and that Carlisle knows, but they'll just keep ignoring the big pink elephant in the room.
After Carlisle leaves for work and the boys leave to drop off their girlfriends, Edward starts throwing a fit because Bella won't tell him what Rosalie got her as a gift. When he finally see's the gift, it leads to some major flirting and some nookie for the two.
The thing that stands out the most for me this chapter is when Bella says they don't need to think of themselves as Romeo and Juliet, Shrek and Fiona, or Jack and Rose but as Edward and Isabella to which Edward replies “I like that. And I’m sure there’s a happily ever after at the end of the story. I mean, fuck, we sure as shit deserve it, huh?” They sure as shit deserve it in my opinion and that's not even including all of the things they still haven't been through yet.
Chapter 40 Bella's POV
Alice and Rosalie come over to help Bella get ready for a New Years Eve party and from the girls we learn some of the not so nice things Edward has done to girls in the past, but they balanced out the negatives with something positive by giving tips on as Rosalie put it "...how to make that asshole feel good."
At the party Edward and Bella have a run in with Lauren. Bella is a bit tipsy from drinking and a bit high too, she goes off on Lauren calling her a whore and bitch in Italian, just some of the wonderful words Edward (and even Carlisle unknowingly) taught her. Then the two of them round third base for a second time.. what!?! If Edward can use baseball metaphors so can I lol. He says some sweet things to Bella while they are watching New Years Eve fireworks like "You are my life now." I swear sometimes that boy is so sweet it makes my teeth ache.
Chapter 41 Edward's POV
Edward and Bella have a discussion about his bad boy behavior in the past. Edward finally realizes that what he did to those girls was probably not fair to them, even though they were willingly participating he understands that it isn't okay. Edward also finds out about the GPS chip and the DNA samples Carlisle took from Bella. He confronts Carlisle over the phone about the GPS and the DNA testing, he is bound and determined to find out why Carlisle did these things. If you haven't made it all the way through yet, what are your theories?
See ya in the comments. (UAB Marie and HB Marie, I will be seeing you girls in just a few hours YAY!)
For next week read chapters 42-44.
