His topaz eyes were pleading with me to say yes, but they still managed to dazzle me.
"Yes." I didn't even have to think about it, if I were going to marry anyone, it would be Edward.He beamed and took a small black box out of his pocket and opened it. Inside, there was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. It had a large topaz gem, with star shaped diamonds encircling it. I gasped, it was so beautiful he placed it on my finger and it fit perfectly, of course. It felt right, to this stunning ring on my finger.
e stood up, gently as always taking my face in his hands. Then he kissed me, it wasn't as careful as a year ago, and that suited me just fine. My hands wound themselves into his hair, as did his into mine. It was more passionate than I had ever experienced.
All too soon, he pulled away. I was almost to the point of passing out, but the look in Edward's eyes startled me. My knees buckled when I looked straight into them. They were not smoldering, they were filled with so much joy, with so much love, and burning.
He looked up into the sky, "It's twilight again, the safest time for us, and yet the saddest time."
I smiled at that, and finished his quote, "The end of another day, and the return of the night." I took a moment to reflect on the day. Everything that had happened today was amazing, school had ended, Jacob imprinted, the problem with the treaty was solved, Charlie forgiving Edward and myself, Edward proposing, what could possibly go wrong? At that moment, his cell phone rang, commending my lucky day.
"Hello?" Edward said.
Someone's voice buzzed from the phone, too fast, I couldn't make out what they said.
Edward's expression turned hard, whatever the person on the phone had said, and it wasn't pleasant. "I'll have Bella call him." Edward snapped the phone shut, nearly crushing it.
"Bella, please call Jacob now. Alice saw that Victoria is going to attack Charlie and she doesn't know when, there wasn't an indication in her vision."
I blanched and reached out for the phone. He gave it to me. I dialed Jake's number, Jake picked up.
"Jake, you have to get the rest of the pack and go to my house NOW! Victoria is going to or already has attacked Charlie." My voice shook from the panicked state I was in.
"Alright, Bella. I'll get them and call you when we find something out," the line disconnected.
I gave the phone back to Edward with a worried look on my face. He also had a troubled look on his face.
"We should go back to my house, everyone is there." Edward gently suggested.
"Alright." I was close to tears. The pack had to get to Charlie in time.
Edward carried me in his arms to his car, and set me in the passenger seat. He was sitting in his seat and starting the car in a second. I tried to think of something else, so I didn't start hyperventilating.
"When you said forever, do you mean your forever, or mine?"
"Well, Carlisle promised to change you after graduation, so mine." He paused, " If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?"
I snorted, "You." That was way too obvious. I was glad that Edward was able to take my mind off of what did, what will, or what was happening at my house.
Edward rolled his eyes.
"Something you didn't already have."
I thought about that for a minute and then answered, "I would want you to change me."
"What if I said that you could have that?"
I stared at him, "Are you serious?"
"Completely. I was going ask you if you wanted that right after you agreed to marry me, if I could change you, since you would be my wife."
I grinned. We arrived at his house then.
Edward opened my door for me, and walked me inside, when his cell phone rang.
"I bet it's Jacob, here you go." Edward said as he handed me the phone.
"Bella, it's me, Jake." His voice was sad, my stomach dropped.
"Is everything alright, Jake?"
"Well, no, but somewhat, yes. We killed Victoria, so you won't have to worry about that bloodsucking parasite anymore. But, when we arrived at your house, we found Victoria standing over Charlie, w-who was." Jake paused, taking a deep breath, " Who was dead."
I started shaking violently.
"Bella are you alright?" Edward asked, concern coloring his tone.
"Jake, I have to go." I mumbled. I wasn't going to be able to hold on much longer.
I closed the phone, shakily.
"Are you alright?" Edward asked again, even more concerned.
"No." I stated before falling into a dead faint.
