I barely had time to close my eyes before we were in the Cullen's living room with Edward pacing in front of us. I was so mad that I could hardly see straight and the fact that I was crying didn't help. I was sort of glad that Jasper wasn't here because I needed my feelings right now. I needed to show Edward how I felt.
"How could you? How could you do that to me Edward?" My voice was barely more than a whisper but I knew he heard it.
"What about the people who saw you? What are they going to think of me? ‘Bella's a pushover. Edward could do anything he wants with anyone he wanted to and Bella would never know about it.' It would have been one thing to break up with me to go out with her but to go behind my back and cheat on me? Don't I mean anything to you? I thought you loved me more than that."
I hadn't realized it but I was yelling by now.
"Bella please. Just listen. I can explain." His voice and face was so sad that it nearly broke my heart over again.
"I don't know if I could believe you now Edward. You told me you were hunting but you weren't, were you? No you were with Angela. How did you even get her to do it? I mean Angela's so nice or at lease I thought she was. Did you dazzle her into ding it?" My voice dripping with sarcasm.
"Bella if I show you what I got would you believe me when I said I wouldn't do anything to intentionally hurt you?"
Before I could reply, he was down on one knee with a velvet box opened revealing a ring with 3 stones. It had a giant topaz gem in the middle with 2 smaller diamonds on each side. It sparkled in the light casting tiny rainbows everywhere. It was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen.
"Bella I love you more than anyone or anything else in this world combined. I want to be with you.....forever. Will you marry me?"
I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Edward was proposing! I didn't miss the fact that he said forever either. I must have been standing there a while because Edward was starting to look nervous.
When all of a sudden my knees gave out and I was face to face with Edward. I was crying yet again but this time for a totally different reason. I was staring at the ring forever when I made up my mind. When I answered Edward I thought at least I could do was look at him when I told him my answer. I knew what my answer was going to be.
"Yes." I whispered quietly.
Edward looked relieved but before he could do or say anything, I tackled him to the ground and kissed him. When my lips touched Edward's, I forgot about everything. The kiss wasn't like our normal short kisses. I kissed him with as much passion as I could. I didn't care that Alice was standing there. Surprisingly he didn't pull back but instead his hands went to my face and pulled me even closer. My lips parted when I gasped and he pulled back reluctantly because Alice was there standing with her hands on her hips.
"Would you two like a room?" I blushed of course and Edward laughed. He brushed the hair out of my face.
"That color is lovely on your skin. C'mon let's go tell everybody." I hadn't realized that everyone was back and was waiting on us.
"What's up guys?" Emmett looked puzzled as if he was left out of a funny joke.
"It's something good. I can feel it." Jasper always had a head start on things like these. He could feel when someone was going to do something by the way their emotions were.
"Bella, why don't you tell them?"
Oh great. Edward was trying to make this hard for me and it was working. Edward helped me get up off the floor and after everybody as seated, I went to stand where everyone could see me. Edward stood behind the couches away from everyone as if he was getting ready to run out the door.
"Well I have some good news."
"What did Edward decide to change you?"
"Emmett," Edward growled, "drop it."
"Alright just asking." Emmett threw his hands up in defense. This was going to be harder than I thought.
"Edward and I...are getting married." There I said it.
"That's great!" Esme cried as she came over to hug me. Then her, Alice, and even Rosalie came to look at my ring. Rosalie was trying to be secretive about it and not look but I could tell she was looking.
"Oh my gosh Bella! This thing is huge!"
"I know but I love it." I couldn't help but smile.
I heard Emmett, Jasper, and Carlisle smacking and congratulating Edward telling him it was about time.
"I was beginning to think that you weren't going to ask her." I looked over at Jasper smiling but it was Edward's attention that I got.
"I just had to find the perfect time." Edward said smiling still looking at me.
When Emmett came over to hug me, I thought I was going to suffocate but he let go jus tin time.
"Just think Bella. He'll have to change you now." Emmett whispered in my ear. I glanced over at Edward to see him glaring at Emmett. But Emmett just laughed.
"I know. I'm counting on it."
"Me too," he said as he walked off. Out of all the family, it was Rosalie who shocked me the most.
"Welcome to the family Bella." She came over and hugged me. She was actually hugging me! So I hugged her back.
"Thanks Rosalie." I was beyond happy. I was finally accepted into the family by Rosalie. Other than the fact that Edward hadn't explained anything yet, my day couldn't get any better. But I was wrong. My day could and was going to get better.
