Darkness consumed my room, I noticed as I awoke in the blackness. Reaching to my bedside table, I flicked on the lamp, and looked around with a sigh. In the chair by my window sat, the now familiar Edward Cullen, his natural pallor reminding me of his eternal life.

I raised my stiff body from my bed, and made my way to close the window that he’d left open. Apparently, he’d forgotten that I could still feel the cold the seeped through. Once I was back on my bed, I rested my head on my knees, thankful for the silence that gave me the chance to relish his God-like image.

How can such a beautiful person, love someone as ordinary and plain as me? I thought, with furrowed brows. The evidently broke the silence, for Edward rose and took my seat, sliding me to his lap.

“What are you thinking about, Bella?” he asked, as he patted my back soothingly.

“Of us…” I replied, only to feel him tense beneath me. “It’s good on your behalf, though.” I quickly added.

It took a moment for him to untense, and when he did he spoke in that velvet voice that melted my insides.

“Bella, I love you because you are true. You are unique. You are my singer! I don’t think there was ever a time that I didn’t love you. And I know…” I looked away and he guided my chin back towards him with two fingers, “…I know there never will be! We’ll always be together! Forever! ”

It took me a moment to realize that he’d said forever, and I seized the moment to reply “So…You do see me in your Eternity?”

He silenced my jeer by placing my head to his stone cold chest, and lightly stroking my back. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to say, but sometimes words escaped my lips before reason could interfere.

“Oh, how I do love you Bella.” He murmured, as he looked through the window and out into the darkness.
