“You’re even surlier than usual. What’s gotten your panties in a bunch?”

I rolled my eyes. “Nice choice of words.”

“What?” he asked, throwing his hands in the air.

“Speaking of bunched-up panties, was it necessary to fold my underwear into origami?”

“Absolutely. I majored in art history, remember? Presentation is important to me.” He turned back to his work. “Did you happen to notice anything else unusual in your laundry bag, or are you one of those glass-half-empty kind of girls?”

“I did. I’m guessing that the portrait is also an example of your handiwork?”

He nodded.

“Somehow, the fact that you can draw doesn’t surprise me. Your other artistic talent, however…” I thought of the perfect starched folds he’d placed in my panties. Making swans out of cotton bikini underwear couldn’t have been easy. “How did you do it?”

“I studied your face as you slept and starting sketching as soon as I went home.”

“I meant the origami. It must have taken you hours.”

“I’m used to spending hours in random women’s panties.”

“I’m serious, Cullen.”

“So am I. I mean, isn’t that what you expected me to say?”

“I don’t know what to expect anymore.”

    So bittersweet. I am *so* in love with your Carlisle. It just kills me that he and Esme’s great love story is so tragically cut short…

    I love your Carlisle. He’s sexy in a very different (but equally exciting) way than Edward. Whatever will I do for my Carlisle fix when you’re done with this story?!

    I love how Carlisle is really enjoying how flustered he makes Esme; you’ve set up their cheeky antagonism nicely, and I look forward to watching it fold in on itself and into something more directly playful altogether.
