"Absolutely not, Isabella Swan." Charlie had always been so against anything that tied his daughter, Bella, to Edward. The worst part about telling Charlie about her recent engagement would be the hurt look on Edward's face when Charlie declared that he wouldn't allow her to marry him.

"If you don't recall, Charlie, I'm completely capable of making my own decisions." She knew this would happen. He couldn't hold her age against her any longer, which frustrated Charlie even more. He picked up the phone, and Bella was quite surprised he didn't break the receiver with the way his fingers slammed into the buttons. Before Charlie knew it, she had unlaced her fingers from Edward's and flew across the room. Her hand grabbing the phone from Charlie and with such force, she slammed the phone on the base of the wall, that it broke.

"I'm not a child anymore. You can't call Renee` whenever I do something you don't agree with." She was far beyond frustrated, who was he to call Renee` and tell her? "It's my job to call her, Charlie. I'll do it when the time is right. I wanted to tell you first, I wanted your approval.." Her voice growing quiet upon the word 'approval'.

Edward came to stand behind her, his hands planted firmly on her shoulders. "Bella, let's give your father some time to think." His velvet voice drifted to her ears, his hand finding hers and pulling her away from Charlie.

"She's not going anywhere with you!" Charlie stepped towards them, his body language suggested he was considering using force to separate his daughter from Edward Cullen.

Bella stood protectively in the middle of them, as Charlie reached for her hand. Bella shook her head as she pulled her hand back. "Charlie. I'm not staying here, regardless. Not until you find it in your heart to just accept our love for one another."

He stepped closer again, and this time Edward's musical voice cut in.

Edward sighed softly, "Charlie. I've always been very polite with you, even when you've been absolutely terrible to me. I've never done anything to prove that I'm unfit for Bella. I love her and she loves me. If you chose to do what I believe you're about to do, I'm apologizing in advance.." He trailed off, as he looked towards Bella.

Charlie took one step back and looked at the two. "I can't watch you make the biggest mistake of your life, Bells. I can't watch you marry him.."

Bella knew that Edward could read Charlie's thoughts. Tears of anger began to form in her eyes. "It's not up for discussion anymore. I'm marrying Edward and quite honestly, Charlie, there isn't a thing you can do about it." She sighed as she turned, pulling Edward towards the door by his hand.

His silver Volvo was parked in the middle of the driveway, right behind Chief Swan's police cruiser. She released Edward's hand and made her way to the passenger door, but before she knew it, Edward was already there.

"Bella, he'll come around.." He said, pushing a piece of hair from her face. His fingertips lingering on her cheek, before his other hand reached down to open the door.

She nodded, her eyes looking up towards him. She would then lower herself into the car. Shutting the door behind Bella, and quickly Edward made his way into the driver's side. Edward Cullen, for once, drove at a normal speed.

The ride to the Cullen's was very quiet, Bella couldn't think of anything to say. She didn't know how she could have a wedding without Charlie, who would walk her down the aisle? Silent tears streamed down her face.

Carlisle would, she thought quietly to herself. She sighed softly as she looked over to Edward. He grabbed her hand and laced their fingers together. "Everything's going to be alright..." His velvet voice was so reassuring. He raised their hands and with the back of his hand, wiped away the last tear she would cry over the matter.

As he pulled up to the Cullen's, Bella immediately changed her entire attitude. Alice, her sister-- her friend, would of course know of the entire incident. Alice had told Bella and Edward that Charlie wouldn't approve, she could see that much.

As soon as she stepped out of the car, Alice had already clinged to Bella. "I'm so sorry." She said, softly into her ear as she gave one last reassuring squeeze before letting go. Then, Edward's arms were wrapped around her waist, she rested against him as she looked to Alice.

"Can you see whether or not he'll come around?" She said, quietly, her voice barely above a whisper. Alice frowned slightly, "He's yet to make a decision. His first instinct after you left was to call Renee`, but you broke the phone." Alice's perfect lips curled into a smirk.

Bella smiled, she now remembered that in the midst of her rage, she did break the phone. Edward then steered Bella into the house, Alice would follow.

"Hey Bella! How--" And as Edward shook his head, Emmett changed his question, "are you?" Emmett looked at him curiously as Bella shrugged, "Better." That was all she could manage to say, she was still on the edge of tears. She told herself she wouldn't cry again over her father's arrogant ways.

The rest of the Cullen's were off hunting, much due to Bella's recent attendance at their house. She had been there more than ever during the last month, and this caused the venom in their mouths to pool faster than normal.

Edward released his hands from her waist and grabbed her hand. He was eager to cheer her up, he was eager to see her beautiful smile, and her flushed cheeks. He took her to his room and shut the door softly behind them. Within seconds, he was sitting in the middle of the large bed, pulling Bella onto his lap. He'd kiss her hair as his hands wrapped tightly around her.

"I love you, Isabella Marie Swan. Truly, I do. In the end, everything will be worth it." He promised, and to his surprise, she believed him.

She reached her hand up to caress his cheek, "I know." Her face turned so she could look up into his eyes, the beautiful golden brown that they were today. His hand came to meet hers, as he cupped his hand over hers. The intense gaze that they held was unbreakable, until of course, his lips crashed down upon her own.

His lips molded perfectly to fit the form of hers, his cold lips felt perfect next to hers and Edward Cullen had never felt anything so mesmerizing as the warmth of her lips. This kiss was different, it wasn't urgent, it wasn't needful, it was full of compassion.

Edward didn't break away from her this time, it was her who broke the passionate kiss that had just been shared between them. She rested her head against his chest, and for the first time that day, she finally just felt at ease.

Edward murmured softly, "Have faith, my love. Everything will be okay." He rested his face against her hair, breathing in her intoxicating smell.

Her mind wandered to the many choices that lay ahead, and then the many choices that she had already made. In another world, her choices would have been different. But, in this world, this world with magic and monsters, she knew she made the right choice. She knew that the loving vampire that held her in his arms was the only thing she'd ever truly need, and that was enough to keep her going.
