“But at 5:24 in the morning?” Bella giggled.
“Okay, that was a bit much, but you weren’t complaining,” Edward smirked. Then, he wrinkled his
nose. He sneezed so loudly that the bed shook. “Oooh, bless me.”
“You okay?” Bella asked, her brow furrowing.
“It’s probably allergies, gorgeous,” he sniffled as he sneezed four more times. “Really bad allergies.”
Bella got up from the bed, pulling on her panties before scampering to their shared bathroom. Edward’s sneezing increased in intensity and volume. She quickly cleaned the aftermath of their lovemaking and grabbed some Benadryl. She handed Edward the pill and he wrinkled his nose. “No, Bella. That knocks me out. I’ve got a Skype meeting with Seattle PD and I’ve got to be coherent.”
“What causes allergies like this, angel?” Bella asked, her brows furrowing.
“Anything airborne. However, I only ever sneezed this badly when Jasper brought home a cat for a day when we were in college. I’m highly allergic to pet dander,” Edward said.
“We don’t have any pets. We have children,” Bella snickered.
“They count as pets, don’t they?” Edward smirked before sneezing again. “Okay, I’m going to shower and then I’ll run to the store to pick up some Zyrtec. I can take that and still manage to be a functional member of society. Though, I may be allergic to our children.”
“What did you do with the cat?” Bella asked, arching her brow.
“Gave it to the neighbor across the hall who was a crazy cat lady,” Edward replied.
“We can’t pawn off our four children onto our neighbors,” Bella giggled.
“We do pawn them off to grandparents,” Edward laughed, waggling his brows. “Maybe they can have some grandparent time this weekend.”
“Only for you, gorgeous,” he smirked, swaggering to the bathroom, displaying his fine behind. Then, he sneezed, smashing his head on the edge of the dresser. He collapsed to the floor, groaning.
