I woke up to find Edward walking in with what appeared to be eggs and bacon.
“Mmm. That smells good.”
“Wait until you eat it before you say that. It could be awful.” He sat on the bed facing me.
“Now Edward you and I both know that you are a great cook.” I was jealous that even without a normal sense of smell and taste, he could still cook better than me.
“Just eat it Bella before I make you.” He was laughing and I could tell that he was liking that idea.
As I finished my perfect breakfast, Edward stood up with me tray but didn’t take more than a couple steps before he turned around.
“Oh Bella? Our wedding is next weekend.”
“What? How could it be next weekend? What about Charlie and Renee? How will she be able to fly in on such short notice?” I couldn’t believe that he had made plans this early. I though he was supposed to ask me about stuff like this.
“Actually Charlie and Renee already know about it, we kind of planned in advance. That way I could change you sooner.”
I was shocked. They knew all this time and no one told me or showed any sign that they knew.
Edward put his arms around me.
“Are you mad at me?” What? How could I be mad at him?
“No, I’m just surprised that Renee hasn’t cracked yet.”
“Yeah I thought she would when I called her but I made her promise not to tell you.”
“I’ll call her later after the dresses.” We heard a soft knock on the door and Alice walked in.
“Speaking of dresses, we need to try them on.” Alice dragged me out of the room with Edward behind me.
‘Help me!’ I mouthed. He just laughed. We walked into Alice and Jasper’s room and went straight to her closet. She pushed me out into the closet. It was twice as big as my room at Charlie’s.
I tried on dresses that were halter tops, strapless, and dresses that showed a little more than necessary. Of course, Edward liked those. I finally decided on one that was strapless and had a veil. The dress had sequins all over top and it hugged me in all the right places. It made me look like I had a figure. After the torture of the dresses, Edward finally spoke up.
“I think it’s time for me to take Bella home to tell Charlie.” Edward took me hand and led me out to the car. I was kind of nervous about telling Charlie even though he already knew. I guess it was the fact that I was telling him. As I walked in the front door, I noticed that Charlie was waiting for us.
“Hi Bells. Edward.”
“Hey dad. Can we talk a minute?”
“Sure. What’s up Bella?” I was glad I had Edward holding my hand. If his cool hand wasn’t touching me, I think I would’ve passed out. I decided to get straight to the point, no need to beat around the bush.
“Dad, Edward and I are getting married.” Charlie looked as if I told him I passed a test. He showed no emotion.
“I know Bella. He came and asked me my permission.” I looked at Edward, surprised. That must have been what Edward meant when he said Charlie already knew. He just smiled.
“You’re ok with it?” Charlie hadn’t exactly got over the fact that Edward had left me but he didn’t know the reason either.
“Well Bella, it’s obvious that he makes you happy. It would be stupid to say no.” I could feel the heat creeping up in my cheeks. I heard Edward laugh quietly.
“Now you need to go call your mom. She’ll want to know.” Crap. I had forgotten about telling Renee. Charlie left the room to me and Edward as I called. She must’ve been waiting on me to call because she picked up on the second ring.
“Oh hi Bella. Anything new going on?” She was playing dumb.
“As if you don’t know mom. How long have you known?”
“About what?” I didn’t want to play this game anymore. I wanted to get this over with.
“You know mom, about me and Edward getting married.”
“Oh that. About two weeks.” I hated when people knew stuff before me.
“Listen Bella. I gotta go Phil’s got a game. But congratulations and I love you. Bye.”
After telling Charlie that I would be at the Cullen’s tonight, Edward took me out to eat. He took me to the same that we went to that night in Port Angeles. We even sat in the same booth.
As we waited on our waitress, I noticed that Edward was staring at me.
“It’s not nice to stare.”
“I can’t help it.” I blushed.
“I love it when you blush.” At that time our order, or I should say my order, came out.
“Is there anything else I could get you?” Even though she had her back to me, I could tell that she was the one from the last time we were here.
“No thank you.”
“Just let me know.” Her voice was so high that I knew it was fake. Edward must have noticed it too. But he never took his eyes off me. As we left, the waitress rubbed Edward’s arm.
“Have a good night.” She was talking to Edward, twirling some of her hair around her finger. I don’t know what came over me but I felt like I could hit her. I folded me arms across my chest. I made sure that she could see my ring.
“Ahem. He’s mine so back off.” She looked like I had smacked her. She scoffed and walked off. Edward took my hand and led me out to the car.
“Jealous are we?” I looked over at him and he was smiling, so I smiled back.
“Well she did that the first time we came here but I couldn’t say anything because you weren’t mine then. But now you are and she needs to keep her hands to herself.”
“I love you Bella.”
“You better. I would hate to have to beat you up.” I joked. He just laughed.
When we got home, Edward carried me up the stairs and I was out before I made it to the bed. But I did wake up once to feel Edward get out of bed to make me more comfortable. I grabbed his wrist and pulled him across the bed to where he was before.
“Ok.” He started humming my lullaby and I was out in less than a minute.
