Edward came over to me and put his arms around me.
“Now if you don’t mind, my fiancé and I need some time alone.” He picked me up and carried me over to his car.
Our ride was quiet. As Edward drove, I tried to figure out where we were going but it was too dark for me to see anything but trees and the street lights. But before I could even think about the places he could’ve taken me, the car stopped. He came over to my side of the car and helped me out. He gently threw me onto his back and he took off running.
Then I noticed that we were in our meadow. The moon was shining right over the meadow and it was so beautiful. It cast just enough light for me to see Edward. He put me on the ground carefully and was in front of me on his knees so fast that all I seen was a blur. He must have noticed that he move too fast.
“Sorry.” He looked kind of nervous. I wondered what made him look like that but before I could ask him, he had a question of his own.
“Bella if I asked you something will you be honest with me?” I was starting to worry a little bit.
“Yes Edward. I’m always honest with you.”
“Do you still want to become a mons-” I cut him off by looking at him with my eyebrows raised.
“Do you still want to be with me forever?”
“That’s a stupid question. Of course I still want to be with you forever.” He looked somewhat relieved and I was glad that he was going to change me after all.
“Ok I’ll change you on one condition.”
“And what condition would that be?” I sort of regretted saying that because knowing him, he would make me wait forever before he changed me.
“Let’s have our wedding with your mom and dad there first. Then I’ll change you.”
“Ok but why do I have to wait?” As clumsy as I was, I would trip and kill myself before then.
“I want to be able to see you blush on our wedding day.” He smiled my favorite smile. I must have stopped breathing because he shook my shoulders gently.
“Ok.” I could live with that. “Now that that’s settled you still have to explain why you were with Angela.” That threw him off track. He thought I would forget.
“Ok but you have to let me finish before you say anything.” I nodded. “I only lied to you because if I told you that I was going to Port Angles without you, you would have gotten mad or think that I didn’t want you to come. So I thought that I would ask Angela to go with me because she seemed to be the nicest one of your friends and the only one who sort of knows what you like other than me or Alice. I must admit when she answered her door she thought that I was cheating on you too until I explained what I was doing. She was so happy for you that I thought she would call you and tell you everything but she didn’t. And I couldn’t take Alice because you would be suspicious. Besides she would explode from having to keep secrets. You know how girls are with secrets.” He was trying to lighten the mood and I couldn’t help but smile.
“Oh.” I was so stupid to think that he would cheat on me.
“Yeah oh and when I saw you standing seeing me with Angela, it broke my heart. I told you a thousand times that I love you and you alone. I would never do anything like that to you. I love you too much to do that.”
He wiped a tear from my cheek with his thumb and it was then that I realized that I was crying. He must think I’m a crybaby.
“Bella please don’t cry.” He pulled me into his lap and hugged me.
“I’m so sorry I accused you Edward.” I cried into his chest. I was surprised that he understood what I was saying.
“But when I saw you with her, I couldn’t help but think that and it….it hurt so much. On the way home I thought where did I go wrong? What did I do to make you stop loving me? It felt like that wind had been knocked out of me and I couldn’t breathe.”
“Bella I would never stop loving you and I never wanted to hurt you.” I snuggled closer and we sat like that until it the moon had moved and it was getting hard to see Edward.
“C’mon we need to get you back to the house.” He picked me up and ran back to the car.
“What time is it?“
“It’s past midnight. But don’t worry I’ll let you sleep in tomorrow.“ He winked and smiled that wonderful smile of mine.
“What about Charlie? He’ll kill me!“
“Don’t worry Alice told Charlie that you were staying with us tonight.“
On the way back, he held my hand and told me how much he loved me. But other than that it was a silent ride.
“Oh wait. Does Charlie know that you’re at the house? I mean while I‘m sleeping?” He still didn’t know about Edward staying in my room at home much less that I stayed in Edward’s. He smiled again.
“No he thinks that we are out camping and that you and Alice are doing each others hair or whatever you girls do at each others houses.” I laughed.
“We don’t do each others hair. We talk about boys and girl stuff.” I said, laughing.
I was glad that I had Alice to talk to about Edward. If I didn’t I think I would go crazy. Also Alice agreed with me that Edward should change me but not that it matters anymore because he told me he would as soon as we were married.
“And what is the real reason I’m staying over?”
“Do you think that if I proposed to you, Alice wouldn’t make you try on every dress she owns?” I groaned. I remembered prom from last year.
“Oh and Bella?”
“Yeah Edward?” He was smiling and I knew what he was about to say couldn’t be good.
“I get to see you in every dress.”
“Why?” It was bad enough that I had to do it in front of Alice but with Edward there it would make things hard for him because I would blush so much. I would make things hard for me because some of the dresses would probably show a little to much. I don’t need Edward to be mad at me for making him hold his breath so much.
“Because I want to see how they look on you. My opinion counts too doesn’t it?”
He was loving this too much. I glared at him and pretended to be mad but he knew better. When we got back, Edward went with Jasper and Emmett to do something. I would ask him about it later.
Since it was late, Alice decided that we would just plan the wedding instead of trying on the dresses. That would come tomorrow. We had already decided what food there would be but it’s not like they could eat it anyway. It would be for, as they called them, the “human” guests. I was so glad when Edward came back at 2 o’clock.
I think she forgot that I was human and needed to sleep.
“Ok time for the human to sleep.” ‘Thank you’ I mouthed as Edward carried me up the stairs.
“We start bright and early tomorrow Bella.” I groaned as he walked into his room. He had put together a bed and fixed it up. This is what they were working on earlier.
“When we get married, we’re going to need one so I figured that I would get one early.” I blushed thinking of the reasons a vampire would need a bed seeing as they don’t sleep. I was gad that I had my back to Edward. I wouldn’t want him to ask questions.
“It’s huge Edward. Do we need one this big?”
“Why not?” I laid down with Edward beside me.
“Why can’t we just elope? It would be so much easier.” He laughed. I would never get tired of hearing that sound.
“It would. But we would never be able to face our family again.” I noticed that he said ‘our’ family.
“But now you need to sleep.”
“Stay with me please.” I batted me eyelashes and pushed out my lower lip.
“I will.” He leaned over and kissed me.
“Fine.” I snuggled closer to him and fell asleep within minutes to him telling me he loved me.
