"You truly want me?", Edward asked me for the thousandth time.
"Forever", I replied. "I'll always want you. You take care of me and love me. I could never repay you for that. You catch me when I fall. You're the only one that's really cared besides Charlie and Renee."
All of a sudden I heard a fierce growl radiating from Edward's chest. " You seem to have forgotten your precious Jacob..." You could hear the sarcasm and the acidic venom dripping from his velvet voice. I could see the sneer on his face as he said it.
"I thought you were forever indebted to Jacob... You said you were going to be nice!!", I complained. I had fully believed him when he said that he would be nice to Jake...
"I'm sorry, Bella. It's just... I don't know. I still get so jealous when I hear you talk about him! And I haven't forgotten the motorcycle incident last year... That made me so mad because of how upset you were...", he sighed, exasperated. For once, he seemed at a loss for words. I wasn't sure what to say to that. He really did still seem upset...
Before I knew it, I started thinking about the nite that Jacob, who had claimed to be my best friend and to never hurt me, showed Charlie my motorcycle and betrayed me more than he ever had when he had just left me hanging after he had become a werewolf. Sam (it's still hard not to hate him... I still cringe at his name) had told him to stay away from me, but Jacob made me figure it out one nite so that I could know and we could still be friends. All of a sudden, Edward interrupted my thoughts.
"And I still haven't forgotten his stunt with telling you that he would rather have you dead than you be a vampire like me and marry me and whatnot," he stated vehemently. Yet again, I had nothing to say. It still hurt me to remember that day. I asked Jacob to kiss me, and finally realized that he was right all along... I truly was in love with him, too!! I still love Edward more than anything, but I’m in love with Jacob, too. Last time I had seem him, he was broken. Physically and emotionally. I still think it would have been better for both of us if I had never realized it. Jacob thinks otherwise, though. He was happy that I finally knew that I loved him, too. He said that he could deal with me knowing that I loved him, too, although not as much as Edward.
"I'm sorry, Bella," Edward said out of nowhere. By the moonlight streaming into my room, I could see my poor Edward's face full of sincere remorse and regret. Surprised by his sudden words, I turned over in the bed and looked at him before I spoke.
"Why do you say that?", I asked, confused. His marble brow creased with confusion and doubt. "Didn't I upset you by saying that and talking about Jacob?"
All of a sudden, I laughed and I could see that I had surprised him with that. I was trying to reply, but my fit of giggles got the better of me and I couldn't speak. Apparently he realized this humorous fact, because he immediately tried to shut me up by stroking my hair and humming my lullaby. He looked so worried, though, and I just laughed harder. Then, there came the always determined look on his face. He realized that there was only one way to stop my sudden outburst of giggles and suddenly looked at me with the full extent of his molten amber eyes. Of course, that shut me up immediately. But he persisted. Before I knew it, his face was closing in on mine and his eyes began to close. Immediately I began to hyperventilate ( well, what do you expect when your hot vampire boyfriend is gonna kiss you? ). My eyes closed as our lips met, and I was in heaven for a brief second.
Then he broke the kiss, and whispered, "Bella, you need to sleep. Good-nite." I pouted but said, "Good-nite, Edward," and closed my eyes and drifted to sleep. The last thing I heard before falling asleep was him telling me that he loved me and always would.
