From secretary to presidential mistress, Bella never thought her life would turn out this way she never thought she would fall in love with the president. With a country to run and a wife to keep a bay Edward only wants Bella-Will they ever get a HEA? Or will the stress of America pushed down on them and bury them under the debris of political sin? Welcome to The Presidential Affair.
Chapter One- Introduction
He thought he would always love her-he grew up with Tanya, loved Tanya, everything about her was familiar to him. That's why they fell in love so easy-why they went through everything together. Looking down at this woman he could not remember any of that-he loved her, he felt complete with her and no one else. She was everything and more to him and he wanted her-they had been carrying this on for so long-it was them, they had tried to be apart-not liked it worked much anyway. He buried his face in her neck breathing in her sent clutching her close.
"Congratulations Mr. President." Edward groaned hitching her leg over his shoulder burying his faces and other parts deeper inside of her. Bella’s breath hitched and she arched her back gripping him tighter.
"Say it again." He growled, she moaned starching his back whispering in his ear again-and he attacked.
[One Year Before]
"Governor Cullen do you think you're going to win?"
"Do you think you're ready to run this country?" Thousands of questions were spout out at him; he only smiled and waved sliding into his black SUV. His guards slid into the back with him and the car moved forward, he could not believe he was doing this; it had been his dream from the moment he saw the president on his television as a child-he wanted this, and of course this was the top the ultimate
President Of The United Sates.
How high could you get? This was what he wanted, and he was going to get it.
"Sir, your wife told us she could not be available to meet the new secretary."
"I have It covered." He smiled at the mention of his wife-the love of his life, and the person that had helped him get this far as he could. The car stopped in front of their home and he was helped out towards he door-press were everywhere. After being able to have access to his home he slid off his jacket and rolled up his sleeves, his eyes shifted to the women who stood. She was small in height, with the most alluring curves. She had on a pencil black skirt, and shiny silver heels his eyes traveled upward to her shirt-a sliver blouse, ruffled and tight showing her well-endowed chest. She had the pinkest of lips, smooth pale skin-then he saw her eyes. They were endless-a bright hazel with flecks of gold, her hair a raven blanket of curls and waves with the most beautiful arch neck.
"Governor Cullen." She says holding her hand out; Edward swallowed thickly holding his own out with a smile-it didn't faze her neutral look. They shook hands and he showed her where she would be working and what she would be expected to do, how and why. She nodded taking notes, but never said anything or spoke.
"Do you understand?"
"Yes." He showed her the bedroom she was welcome to stay in.
"Thank you but no thank you sir, I'm perfectly fine walking home."
"I can't allow that I will have a guard drive you home."
"I-" Edward held up his hand with a raised eyebrow
"No arguments, if anything I want to do that for you."
"Of course Governor Cullen." Her cheeks flamed red.
"Thank you Miss. Swan."
Of course Tanya took to Bella, just like Edward did-just differently. Edward could never keep his eyes far enough away from Bella-she was an enigma and never seemed to be phased by him or anything he did. She was overwhelmingly amazing at her job; he could not ask for someone better. The campaign was running smoothly as planed but his attraction the Bella Swan was not, after another long day of meetings he buried himself into his office trying to push all of the stress off, of course he could not find his wife at all in times like these.
A knock at the door didn't surprise him; but the voice who called through it did.
"Governor Cullen?" Bella whispered, opening the door to peer in-he didn't look up from how he sat in till he saw Bella's shiny black heels. She sat on the sofa next to him touching his muscled forearm gently. "Sire, are you alright?" Edward shook his head taking a large gasping breathe. He was shocked when she put her arms around him; he turned burning his face in her neck let out a sob holding her close-it felt good holding her holding him that someone was taking care of him.
"I'm here." She whispered "I'm here Edward."
He knew then Bella was important.
Since the day of his breakdown Bella had been his keeper-she kept him in check, on his toes and the great politician he need to be. She was leaving for the weekend when she felt familiar strong arms wrap around her.
"Stay" he whispered huskily, she turned touching his face gently.
"You need to sleep."
"I need you to stay." He retorted
"I need to go home and your wife is waiting for you." She pulled away and he pulled her closer and pushed her against the door-the door clicked was the only noise heard.
"Tanya?" she questioned Edward sighed kissing along her neck.
"I can help how I feel, how I feel about you."
"How do you feel?" She mumbled gripping the base of his neck; she clutched him closer blowing on the base of his ear.
"I love…love…love you." He confessed breathlessly kissing her cheek.
Leah pulled back running a finger down his cheek, touching his lips softly.
"I love you to."
They continued their affair of course they had their fights and Bella tried to run-he never let her go. She stood in the room watching the votes being counted that night-everyone sat in the room watching the television and Edward. Tanya was the first to let out a cheer-he had won.
Edward Anthony Masen Cullen The Second was the President Of The United States.
She watched as he was sworn in, as he as congratulated and dressed-he watched at Tanya and Edward had their first dance as First Lady and President with tears in her eyes. She was now the White House Press Secretary, as requested by Edward. She had worked to get here-of course she had sex with a man of the free world in the process but she loved him, her heart had no other place but with him-he owned her. Shutting the TV off Bella turned as the door to the President's office door opened and closed-Edward.
"Shouldn't you be at inauguration ball?"
"Well I'm here now." He said with a smile, un-cuffing his cuffs and rolling up his sleeves walking towards her. She walked around and away from him.
"Two floors and a million of miles away." He answered He came up behind her, griping her tightly towards him.
"We can't do this look at what room we are in."
"I think that desk is quite great looking." He mumbled.
"Edward you're the president."
"We can't." he shut up her with his lips pushing her against the desk; she melted as his hand ran down her tights gently as a feather. She pulled back pushing him away sliding off the desk.
"We can't, you're president we can't keep at this any longer."
"Can you do that?" he growled gripping his hair, he stepped closer to her "Can you walk away from me? Honestly? Can you? My heart knows nothing but you. I'm blinded and can see nothing other than you." Bella sighed "I love you Bella.” Biting her bottom lip she slid back on to the desk and he stepped forward kneeling down the kiss her stomach running his hands up her dress to pull down her nude tights, his kisses were light and soft his hand strong holding her steady as he played her like a piano. He trailed back up to her lips pulling her closer.
"I love you." She whispered.
"As I love you."
What a complicated situation! Good idea using Tanya and Bella! Did you get the idea from The Fixer?
PS: There is still one sentence where you used the name Leah.
A great start to an interesting story. Looking forward to more.
I'm not sure what Tanya will do if she finds out!
By the way why did you change it from Leah to Bella? I'm just interested.
OMG luv it but u used Leah instead of Bella in one sentence, no biggy LOL keep me posted! LUV it!
Chapter Two-Mr. President
"There you look handsome." Bella whispered she fixed his coat and then pulled out a American flag pen from her jacket pocket. She placed it on the top and pinned it there touching it and looking up at him.
"Thank you." He whispered, they were in the oval office flashes of what happen two nights ago fresh in their minds. Leah nodded turning to walk away when Edward grabbed her.
"Kiss me." Bella turned to look at him but hastily pulled away as a knock came to the door and Tanya peeked in.
"Oh Bella!" She smiled "Good morning I didn't know you were here already." She hugged the women then went up to her husband to kiss his chin and run her hand down his chest.
"Hello Tanya." He mumbled, his eyes casted to Bella who again put on the 'mask' he called it-he hated that mask-it wasn't her, it wasn't his Bella.
"Mr. President the photographers are here." Of course they had to have this, the interview as First Lady and President along with the photos to show how happy they were together. Bella bowed out as the team of professionals walked in.
"Oh where did you get this from?" she asked touching to pin Bella gave to him
"It was Eisenhower's" he said quickly
"Well that is." She laughed "That is just fantastic."
Edward along with his personal guard and five others when with him on his morning run, his navy jacket on and sweat pants made his outfit. His personal guard-Jasper ran next to him.
"Perhaps you would like to be briefed on some things." He huffed as they ran.
"I am not a runner I hate running." He huffed "Running the leaders of China or Pakistan or whatever don't have to do any of this."
"I just thought you might want to know where the cameras are sir."
"Cameras?" he huffed and they stopped and turned to each other as Jasper spoke again.
"The surveillance cameras in the White House." He spoke with a look-a look of knowing.
"There are Cameras." Edward said again-this time without questioning but with a tone of shock.
"Every morning an Agent reviews the footage can either erases or archive that video depending on-"Edward cut him off
"What you see."
"Yes sir." He nodded, Edward walked towards him sighing
"I take it there is a camera in the oval office? And you reviewed the footage the night of the Inauguration Ball."
"I didn't see anything worth archiving sir, not on my shift. Always be on my shift sir-understand sir?" Edward backed away nodding and started to run.
"What are my options?"
"You just told me there are surveillance camera's all over the White House, I'm asking were aren't there any camera's?"
"The state of the union should be about what you believe it should showcase everything and promise for the future." Bella spoke, looking at Edward. He smiled back from the couch he sat on.
"The immigration policy is something I do believe in." he laughed
"That can't be your highlight it's not strong enough." She countered
"It's what we ran on!" Alice shot out besides Edward; she was another advisor, wife to Jasper and his best friend.
[Bedroom later that night]
"Immigration is no poll and if you can't-" She was cut off by the kisses on her neck and the weight of Edward as he rolled her on top of him, she let out a loud laugh leaning down to kiss him still laughing.
[Camp David-Day 2]
"We can't touch the fence or it might upset the base I'm just saying."
"We need to be bold, to look forward, so they know what's coming, youth is the future it's the next generation we need them."
"And mistake." Alice shot Eric a look
"We can give credit for college tuition showing the union we care for emigrational children and well-being. And congress man that does not stand and applaud will lose a parent's votes." Bella smiled
"That's that is gold." Alice whispered smiling and Edward smiled at Bella.
She was amazing.
[Woods-Camp David later that day]
"That was brilliant what you did back there." Alice laughed
"It's part of my job." She said with a smile, Alice had asked her to take a walk in the woods with her before they left Camp David.
"IIs Edward also a part of your job?" Bella stopped turning to look at her.
"He is why?"
"Nothing you two seem very close."
"I've been with him going on two years, I helped his path on to the White House-what else is there?"
"You love him." Alice said bluntly Bella said nothing; she turned and kept walking "He's a great man." Alice tried again.
"He is, not many achieve President at thirty-five years of age."
"I didn't mean it that way Bella, I know just as my husband does."
"It matters not what you want you know; nothing it happening."
"Don't play me as a fool." She hissed Bella sighed turning to look at the pixie women.
"What do you want me to say it not as if I tell you it won't change anything."
"It changes you admitting it to yourself." Alice countered. Bella said nothing.
"Just don't break his heart." Was the last thing she spoke.
I hope he doesn't break mine. She thought.
[Still Camp David]
Bella was happy to be away from prying eyes and Edward. Wrapping her robe around her she sunk down into her sofa watching TV, of course her mind raced to what Edward was doing, and if he was okay. The knock at the door pulled her from her thoughts and the melted ice cream in her hands. Placing the bowel down she walked towards her door shocked to see Edward and Tanya.
"Oh Bella, I'm glad you're here."
"Tanya!" She said with a shocked tone hugging her. "What are you doing here?"
"I was just passing through and I wanted to see how the union speech was going." She laughed. Bella smiled looking at Edward who gave a halfhearted one." I wanted to talk about it over dinner but he said you wouldn't I told him of course you would." Bella smiled letting them come in.
[White House Gardens]
"Stop pacing, you pace when you're nervous." Edward said walking around the corner
"Leave me alone." She growled
"Bella tell me what's wrong!" He growled, he griped her arm turning her to him-he didn't have to be all sweet with Bella. They could act like animals-rough and wanting and did he want her right know.
"TANYA!" She screamed "Tanya is what wrong, I smile at her and take my clothes off for you, I wait for you, watch for you-I belong to YOU!" she hissed hitting his chest.
"You think I don't feel this?" he spat "I belong to you Bell, I watch for you to, I wait for you. You're my air I cannot breathe without you, you do not think I want to escape all of this? The run away and be with you? Because I do-Bell I love you." He hissed letting her go and turned to walk away.
I'm wondering if Alice and Jasper will try to blackmail them in some way.
It isn't a good thing that they are doing, I hope they can find some way to turn things round.
And I understand your change of charater name now, shame really now you have to edit all your story to put in the new name - I suppose not to bad if you do a global change.
Jasper and Alice do seem to be on their, or at least on his side. They are definitely very protective of him. But who will protect Bella? What will Tanya do when she finds out? How can they make things right? The whole situation is not fair to anyone and who knows how many forms of heartbreak could still follow?
great update! can't wait to read your next one! how long is she gonna put up with this or before it comes out?...lol
I see you have gone back to Leah and Bella again rather than Bella and Tanya.
I'm not sure I understand what has happend to Edward, is he still president?

I loved it, update soon, okay? :D
