I was engaged! It sounded like a swear word to me, but I couldn’t complain about the results that were to follow. I loved Edward more than life itself, and he knew it. I would die for him. I would be immortal as a vampire, as his wife. I wanted to spend the rest of eternity with the most perfect boy on the face of the earth. But of course, he had his own list of things to do before he would change me into a vampire. We had to get married. Edward wanted me to himself, no one else. CHAPTER 16 Will be up soon!

Chapter 1: Anxiety
I couldn’t breathe, my heart beating like rapid fire in my chest. What was I thinking? I couldn’t do this! What had I gotten myself into? And putting Edward in the line of fire, nonetheless! I could feel the sweat rolling down the side of my face, the scenery speeding by with a new type of acceleration. I wished he would slow down. I wanted to put this off as long as I could.
“Bella?” Edward’s velvet voice asked, interrupting me from my inner turmoil. He looked at me with his melted topaz eyes, concern lightly etched into them. “What’s wrong? You’re heart is beating so fast that I can’t hear myself think.” He had a worried tone hidden in the depths of his voice.
I bit my lip, not wanting to admit to him what I was felling: the fear. It was a silly fear, one that could have been avoided if I didn’t have to face my parents. I had to tell them that I was getting married in the next two months and I knew that it wouldn’t be easy. I could see Charlie standing in front of me, pointing a revolver at Edward. Of course it wouldn’t hurt him in the slightest, but it was the thought of the situation. I could just imaging Charlie’s face purple with frustration as he shouted obstinacies at my fiancée. I shuddered to myself as I thought the word.
“Bella, please tell me what you’re thinking,” Edward asked in a begging tone. I could hear the pain in his voice, the anxiety. “You know that it drives me mad that I can’t hear your thoughts, especially at times like this!”
I felt his arm snake around my waist, his cold marble skin relaxing me slightly. Not only could he hear my heart racing, but now he could feel my pulse. I didn’t want to have to tell Charlie and Renee about our engagement, but I had too. I couldn’t keep this secret from them any longer, not after what Charlie had said to me last night. My heart seemed to shrink at the thought inside my chest.
I was engaged! It sounded like a swear word to me, but I couldn’t complain about the results that were to follow. I loved Edward more than life itself, and he knew it. I would die for him. And, I would be immortal as a vampire, as his wife. I wanted to spend the rest of eternity with the most perfect boy on the face of the earth. But of course, he had his own list of things to do before he would change me into a vampire. We had to get married. Edward wanted me to himself and no one else.
But what I wanted the most from him, I had just turned down in our meadow. What had I been thinking? I wanted to share my last human experience with him, give him ever part of me that was human. And he just offered! It was something that Edward would never do. But those stupid morals that Charlie had set into my head last night! I had to do things right. I couldn’t just leave Charlie and Renee without an answer, and this wedding seemed like the best closure I could give them. I owed them that much.
“Bella, please!” Edward begged, his tone melting my thoughts away. I couldn’t leave him out anymore. He had a right to know what was coming, the fate he was about to meet when we talked to Charlie.
I turned to look at Edward, his beauty stunning me as it always did. It felt harder to breathe now than it had before. His topaz eyes were now pleading as they looked into my soul. I sighed, looking away.
“I’m nervous,” I admitted, a blush taking my face. I bit my lip that was quivering slightly, hoping to stop the nervous reaction.
“I told Alice that this was a bad idea,” Edward said immediately, not looking at the road at all. His concentration was solely on me now. “I’ll break it to her, Bells. We will do this your way, the way that you are most comfortable. I’m tired of you trying to make everyone else happy. I want you and only you to be happy. You are my everything, Bella.”
I laughed at him, unable to contain myself. My fear had nothing to do with the wedding Alice was planning for me. My fear had to do with Charlie and Renee’s reaction to that event. I didn’t care about the wedding, just as long as Alice didn’t go overboard and I would be turned into a vampire promptly after.
Edward quickly shifted his eyes back to the road, not saying anything. I could tell my laughter had hurt him, even if he didn’t show it. I felt a prang of guilt run over me as I tried to end my laughter. I hated when he was upset, a piece of my own soul being crushed in the process.
“Edward,” I said, trying to stiffen my giggles. “It’s not that, love.” I bit my lip and placed one of my sweating palms on his knee. “I am happy. I am happy wherever you are. I’m just…just nervous about telling Charlie and Renee…” this fear seemed silly to me now, especially after everything else that I had faced thus far. “You do realize the death sentence that you have set up for yourself? It’s a good thing that you’re immortal, or else Charlie would literally kill you!”
“Silly, Bella,” Edward chuckled, turning his face back to face me, holding me tighter. “I am willing to take any risk as long as you end up as my wife.” He smiled at me, his beautiful smile melting my heart. How was it that I had ended up with someone so beautiful?
“Are you willing to turn me early so that I don’t have to do this?” I asked in a hopeful tone, knowing that I didn’t have chance. He looked at me, his eyes darkening slightly.
“Bella--” he started, looking back at the road. It was a touchy subject.
“I know, I know, but it was just a thought,” I sighed, seeing the town of Forks out my side window. Within minutes, I would have to do the unthinkable. I shivered at the thought. Edward slowly withdrew his arm from around my waist, thinking that I must have been cold. I quickly grabbed his arm back, a light smile coming over his perfect features.
“Just remember that I will be at your side the entire time,” Edward said as he parked the silver Volvo in front of my house. My pulse started to race as he kissed the top of my head. I didn’t want to have to tell Charlie. “I love you, Bella,” he said calmly into my hair.
“I love you too,” I muttered, closing my eyes to try and relax myself. However, before I could get another moment to myself, I heard Edward chuckle lightly.
“Charlie’s getting worried about us sitting outside too long,” he said, his eyes flashing back to me. “He thinks that we’re--”
“Don’t say it,” I moaned, putting my hands in front of my face. I couldn’t calm my pulsing blood that was raging through my body. “It’s bad enough that I have to tell him in a few minutes!”
I could feel the anxiety sweeping over me. I felt faint as Edward helped me out of the car. His arms were the only things supporting me as we made our way to my front door. I kept glancing down at the beautiful ring that Edward had placed on my third finger on my left hand. It looked perfect, almost too perfect to be me. I couldn’t believe what I was doing.
“Edward,” I murmured under my breath, unable to speak louder than that.
“It’ll be alright,” he assured me, kissing my hand that was held in his, the one with my engagement ring on it. I felt a shiver run down my spine as his icy lips touched my hand. He always had amazing effects on my body. I wondered if it would be different if I was a vampire.
“Will you do me a favor?” I whisper as we paused in the porch for a moment, allowing me to try and clam myself before I faced Charlie.
“Anything, my love,” Edward said, his face lighting up with my favorite smile. I loved him so much.
“Will you murder me,” I moaned, his hand reaching for the handle. I wished that it would happen in slow motion.
“Anything but that,” Edward answered, his eyes darkened as he looked a me. I knew that comment wouldn’t go over well, but it was worth a try. I had to find a way to delay this announcement for a few more seconds.
I sighed, as I knew I couldn’t put it off any longer. Charlie would be getting nervous if we stood outside for too long.
“Well, here goes nothing,” I said, taking the door handle and twisting it lightly, my hand in Edwards. It was time to tell Charlie.
