I woke up to my alarm clock blaring with its irritating beeping that I desired to silence desperately. My hand weakly hit the sleep button and I breathed a sigh of relief.

I whimpered as the cold nipped at my toes. I rapidly pulled the covers back up as I searched for my personal space heater. Still with my eyes firmly shut, I tried to find Jacob.

My hands flopped around on the bed sheet next to me, but they came across nothing warm. My eyes flew open and saw that I was alone. I groaned, but pulled myself out of the bed.

I noticed a note on my bedside table. It had Jacob’s messy handwriting on it. I reached for it as I pulled on my baby blue, fluffy robe.

It was slightly cold from sitting out all night at the foot of the bed, but on the upside it had Jacob’s musky wood smell that I longed for. I breathed in his scent greedily as I read the note.

Dear Heather, I’m sorry that I couldn’t be there when you woke up. I wish you the best of luck on your first day on your new job. Sam had us met up bright and early this morning and you looked like you could use some extra sleep, so I didn’t wake you. I hope you aren’t mad at me. I will be patrolling the school today with Quil, so if you need anything, and I mean anything, just single. I will have my cell on. Can’t wait to see you at the end of the day. I love you, Jacob P.S. - I will be watching!

I placed the note in the second drawer of my nightstand- where I keep every note Jacob had ever written me- and got up to go make coffee.

As I reached the stairs, I was hit with the smell of fresh brewed coffee. I smiled knowing that Jacob had made it before he left.

Indeed I was right. As I walked into the kitchen and found a full pot of coffee, fresh baked cinnamon muffins, and the newspaper, all arranged neatly on the counter. Along with another note from Jacob.

I love you. Good luck toady. If any of the students get too rowdy, you let me know. I will come in and set them straight. That includes any vampires, I will be happy to help you with those little leeches. Just remember that I will be thinking about you all day long. I will drive Quil nuts. Love, Jacob

I giggled at the note before grabbing my breakfast. I had exactly two hours before I had to be at the school.

I had to admit that I was extremely nervous. I loved teaching; my mother and my grandmother were teachers. I guess you could say it was in my blood. But I didn’t know how to act, especially around vampires.

I knew that I would be safe with Jacob hovering anxiously outside the window, but it didn’t help my nerves any.

I took a deep breath and tried to reassure myself as I ate breakfast. I had just taken a week of classes on how to teach the students and what to lessons to teach. Yesterday, I got to meet most of the staff.

Mr. Banner and Mr. Mason had been there the longest. They were… interesting, or more boring I would say. They didn’t seem to really take pleasure in their job as I did. But Ms. Platt and Mrs. Madison seemed nice; they gave me tips for today and told me to relax.

And that is what I was going to do, relax. I took a few deep breaths, before washing my plate off and heading up stairs to get ready.

I took a hot shower. The steamy water seemed to clear my head and calm my nerves mostly. I curled my hair and applied a light coating of makeup, including mascara, blush, and a pink lipstick that was barely noticeable.

I dressed in a tight fitting black skirt that went to my knees and had lace on the bottom hem. I wore a light blue long sleeve shirt that hugged against my arms. It was a v-neck and also had black lace along the seam.

I slipped on my pair of black flats that were dressy, but comfortable at the same time. From my jewelry box, I took out my wedding ring and white sapphire neck that Jacob had gotten me on our first date. It had a slight curve in the seven stones. They got bigger as they descended down the row.

I took one last glance in the mirror as I fidgeted with the non-existent wrinkles in my shirt. I grabbed my purse and leather briefcase and headed out the door.

“it was going to be ok. Nobody was going to bite, I hope,” I told my self as I started my car and drove out of the small meadow surrounding our house.

Bella’s POV

Edward and I laid together on our gigantic bed in our room listening to my lullaby playing faintly in the back round. I had my left cheek pressed against his chest and my arms around his neck. My fingers twiddled his hair around at the bottom of his neck.

He had face resting in my hair, breathing in my scent -that he said smelled even better than my human smell- and his arms wrapped protectively around my waist. His fingers massaged my bare back where my shirt was pulled up half way.

This was heaven for us. Ever since we had gotten back together, this had been our tradition every night. We would cuddle up on the bed, Edward would pick a CD to play and we would just hold each other. Yes, we couldn’t sleep, but it was relaxing.

“It’s time to get ready for school,” he murmured in my hair.

“Must we?” I groaned. I particularly liked the position I was in and had no desire to get up and go to a place where people always gawked at us and we learned things I have learned many times already.

“Yes, we have already missed enough school. Plus, the weather is perfect today. It’s raining and cold.”

“You call that perfect weather?” I rested my chin on his chest as I looked up at him with one eyebrow raised.

“Well, I do prefer warmer, sunnier weather, but it is perfect weather for our species. Trust me, I would much rather go and spend the day in our meadow, but we really have to go.” He ran his fingertips across my smooth, flawless cheek. I leaned into his touch.

“Fine, but this weekend we are going to our meadow. I am taking a break from wedding plans. Alice will have to deal.” I complained.

“I heard that!” Alice shouted from her room.

We both chuckled as I heard a door slam.

“How about we go tonight?” Edward questioned as he gazed down at me, still running his fingertips across my skin, but now down my throat.

“That sounds even better.” I smiled up at him. He smiled back at me with that my favorite crooked smile that still took my breath away.

I moved up his chest so I could kiss him. I preferred these kisses much more than the ones I used to get when I was human. All boundaries were forgotten, but he was still gentle and tender.

And then of course there was loud thump that shook the door. I groaned as Edward smiled against my lips. He pecked my lips once more, before answering.

“Yes, Alice?”

“Are you almost ready? I need to talk to you.”

“You can come in, Alice.” I was curious. I was not about to let them leave me out to this. Especially, because it was most likely about me.

Alice danced in through the doorway and jumped on the edge of the bed making it sway slightly.

“Anything you can say to me, you can say in front of my future wife.” Edward sat up, but pulled me on to his lap. I leaned back into his chest and kissed his collarbone.

“I know that, it’s just… well… I had a vision that might upset you or make you sad, I’m not sure which.”

“Aren’t you supposed to know which, Alice?” I questioned with sarcasm.

“I would if your future, and mine, well… everyone’s didn’t suddenly disappear.” She admitted the last part quietly.
