As we lie there, in Edwards's bed, Edward was listening to my heart beat, and I running my fingers through his perfect, bronze hair. Everything is perfect for once. Yesterday was my graduation, and Edward and I were to be married in 3 months, followed by my transformation during our ‘Honeymoon'. I smiled to myself at the thought of being with Edward for eternity.
Either Edward heard my heart flutter, or he was watching me again because he asked turning the full force of his topaz eyes on me.
"What are you thinking?"
"How happy I am." I answered truthfully.
"Hmm? Do explain." He said kissing my exposed collar bone.
"What do I need to explain? I am with the man I love, who has no reason to love me, does back, AND I'm getting married to him. Life is great." I said smiling. His picked up my left hand and kissed the ring on my third finger.
"I say the same thing to myself everyday. Did I ever tell you that you look like my mother?" he said smiling back at me.
I shook my head, "Is that a good thing?"
"Yes, but you are way more beautiful than Elizabeth. And I love you."
I was convinced. "Do you know why I love you?" I asked him.
He shook his head, "No. Why?" His eyes lighting up.
"I was actually hoping you would know, because I don't."
He looked at me with a hurt expression, his eyes dimming drastically.
"What I mean is. I don't need a reason do love you."
He smiled at that. "Another thing I ask myself everyday is how much do you love me?"
I smirked as I sat up. He frowned at himself probably thinking he was ruing the moment. I laughed quietly, but not quietly enough.
"What are you-" I cut him off before he could finish by planting a kiss his lips. At first it was just intended to be a single little peck, turned to be multiple, and then they became longer and passionate until we just didn't part. I felt my head getting dizzy and before I could stop we were lying down. He rolled us over so he lie on me, but he, as usual, held up his weight so I felt little to none of it. He then grabbed my hands and pulled them over our heads. I parted my lips and sucked on his lower lip. He slowly pulled away, "Bella." "Shh." I said kissing him lightly on the neck, then going down to his collar bone, then his shoulder, and back up to his face. Saving his lips for last. We were just getting into the kiss when Alice came running into his room.
"Edward I just- Whoa! Sorry. I'll be outside." Said Alice in both shocked and amused voice.
I heard a growl rumble in Edward's chest it was only loud enough for me to hear though. He gave me one last kiss and said, "Sorry. We just can't be alone for very long can we?"
"Fate must really be trying to push us to our limits." I said as an answer. He chuckled darkly, and put me in a much more appropriate position on his lap.
"Come in Alice." He said with a sigh.
She came in- no danced in - and said, "Uh... Edward, I had a vision."
"Anything that concerns me, you can say in front on my fiancée." He smiled as his new term for me.
"I'm not so sure about that." I felt Edward stiffen underneath me as he searched her thoughts. Their eyes never disconnecting.
I felt Edward vibrating underneath me. When his now black eyes disconnected from hers he shoved me off of him and he stormed out of the room.
"Alice what happened?" I asked confused.
"Well. Um... I think Edward will want to tell you himself."
"Alice?" I said raising an eyebrow.
"DON'T TELL HER ALICE," we heard Edward command from downstairs.
"Ugh! THEN COME UP HERE AND TELL HER YOURSELF!" Alice yelled back.
"I LIKE TO YELL, TOO!" inserted Emmett. I would have giggled if not for the situation.
"Shut Up Emmett!" Edward yelled, lowering his voice slightly
"What Are You Gunna Do? Hit Me?" Emmett said matching Edward's volume. Then, Alice and I heard a crash and shattering of glass.
We rushed out of Edward's room and to the stair case. Meeting Esme half way there.
"Emmett what did you break?" she asked. More concerned about the furniture then Emmett himself.
When he came into view he was surrounded by glass, and was alone.
"Where is Edward?" I asked.
"He must be pretty mad. What did you don to him?"
"I didn't do any-." I tried to say but Rosalie cut me off.
"Boys." Said Rose in an exasperated tone while entering the room, and looking at Emmett surrounded in glass.
I groaned in my head. I really didn't want to talk to Rose when I was in such a bad mood.
"Don't everybody look so excited to see me." She said sarcastically.
"Oh... What did you do?" Rose asked turning to me.
"I didn't do any-." Alice cut me off this time.
"I had a vision. And Edward over reacted. Big shocker." Then she turned to me, "Though the vision will never happen. But I can tell, it's only the beginning."
"If it never happens then why doesn't he want you to tell me? And where did he go?" It's only the beginning? I thought to myself. This can't be good. Not at all.
"He ran off into the forest, probably hunting his anger away. And I bet he would rather tell you himself anyways." Alice answered.
"Come on, dear." Esme said gesturing me to follow her. We walked out to the backyard. "I have wanted to talk to you for a while."
