The night was nothing compared to what the morning had held. The clouds had dissipated, revealing the skies full brilliance. The bright stars dazzled, against the dark blue curtain. The full moon crept through what light clouds there were, making the earth glow. Edward was driving considerably slow for him. I glanced at the speedometer, it read 87 mph.

“Not in a rush tonight?” I said sarcastically.

“Not really.” he said, turning to smile at me.

I turned away from his perfect face, and stared out the window. It was all just a blur, but I could still recognize where we were. He had just taken the turn that would take us to his house. I turned back to look at him.

“Why are we going to your house?” I said, hearing the confusion in my own voice. “Did you forget something?” I knew Edward far to well to know that he never forgot anything.

“No, I didn’t forget anything.” he simply stated. He didn’t look at me as he spoke, he just stared out onto the road. Our hands still twined together. “That’s where the surprise is.” Now he turned to look down at me, his lips curved upward into a playful smile.

I stared out at the road not knowing what to expect. What could possibly be at his house? My mind raced with all the possibilities. Was tonight the night he’d finally let me join his family? I tried to remove that idea from my mind. He laughed at prom when I told him that’s what I thought was going on. But the conversation we just had last night…

“Bella?“ Edward had interrupted my thoughts. We had stopped.

It was dark, there were no lights to eliminate the three stories. It looked different, the warmth it usually held was overtaken by the dark night. Edward was holding the car door open for me. I hopped out of the car, taking his hand. I felt oddly scared walking up to the too familiar house I spent most of my time. But tonight it wasn’t the same house I knew. It was eerie, as if no one had lived here in years.

“Bella, are you ok?” He obviously could smell the fear that had suddenly taken me over.

“Yes, I’m fine.” I said as smoothly as I could manage, never looking at his face. “Where is everyone?” I asked, confused by why the house was so empty.

“They left to give us some privacy.” he said, as we continued to walk.

“You asked them to leave, just so we could be alone!” I spoke louder than I intended. I couldn’t help the sudden anger that my tone held. “We can be alone anywhere, they didn’t have to leave their house!”

“I didn’t ask, they offered.” His voice was smooth, obviously not bothered by my tone.

“Oh.” I stated, now embarrassed that I had assumed things before Edward even had a chance to explain. “Where did they go?” I asked in a more tranquil manner.

“They went hunting. They figured that it was a perfect time.”

I stopped at the front door, wondering what would be waiting behind them. Edward looked at my face, he seemed amused by my confusion and I wished he would just get it over with. He squeezed my hand gently, and led me through the doors. It was completely dark inside, but we continued to move forward. I tried to adjust my eyes, but couldn’t seem to recognize anything. He didn’t turn on any lights, as he made his way through the house with complete ease. I on the other hand, stumbled more than enough times. I couldn’t walk in broad day light, what made him think I could in the pitch black. But he held onto me tightly, never leaving my side, making sure I didn’t cause myself any life threatening danger. We finally stopped in front of a door somewhere in the house I still couldn’t recognize. He watched my face, as he slowly opened the unknown door.

My mouth instantly dropped as I saw what was in his backyard.
