Dreaming of the Breaking Dawn
Post-eclipse; Bella and Edward and Bella's first demand. Lots of teasing, a little turn of the tables, and then...well, you will have to read it... The became much more than I originally meant for it to...it has become a fluffy story of the last days of Bella's life in Forks.... COMPELTE
I don’t usually like post-eclipse stories, I would prefer to write Edward's point of view from something I have already read, but this just came to me. I have it rated Adult now, but I really don't think it will ever get to that point, I want to keep it in the same voice and I could never see Stephenie writing anything graphic...plus, the story isn't there yet...they may not...=o)

I shouldn’t be so nervous. I asked for this. We have been married for a week, we have been sharing a bed for almost two years; but this is different. Today was the day, an event.
It was still early, but in a house full of people who never sleep, I assume it wasn’t that early. None the less, after showering and getting dressed, everything carefully picked out for such an event, as if there is appropriate attire for something like this, I am back in Edward’s room – our room – curled up in the middle of the bed waiting for my husband’s return. Thought very comfortable around my new family, I didn’t move around them too much when Edward was not present. I felt like it was hard enough living with a human for them, I did not want to make it worse by hanging around them when unnecessary. Besides, I had a lot to think about this morning.
Husband! I grimace to myself. I don’t know that I will ever get use to that. Perhaps I will…after a century or so.
The wedding had been okay, for a wedding. My dad had taken it gracefully enough, maybe more so that I had even. Realizing Edward was never going to leave me again Charlie had decided that he was not a bad guy, not even when he planned on taking his daughter away. If only he knew how away Edward was really going to take me.
Renee was a little more difficult, I had to ask Edward to listen for her to arrive to kidnap me and take me back to Florida by force. She was convinced that I had been brainwashed and would never had made this decision on my own. If only she knew the decisions I had made. Loving a vampire, becoming a vampire; these seem like something bigger than just deciding to marry someone when I was eighteen. The truth is they were easier, not that the first was a choice, it just was from the first time I saw him.
Now, eight days later, another decision I had made, a stipulation to the marriage, was about to be fulfilled. We were going to try. Today.
Edward would be back soon, I still hate it when he is gone. I know he has to hunt but I was anxious for the day I could go with him. He didn’t like when I voiced these types of thoughts, he was still trying to postpone my change. That was not going to happen, but it wouldn’t stop him from trying.
Thankfully though, he had taken Alice with him. That would not have been pleasant this morning. Alice was one family member who very obviously didn’t mind my presence; in fact, she was absolutely elated by it. She did not mind bursting into our room without warning or sneaking up on me if I was alone in the house. She could also see the future, and today I didn’t want her to see this or at least I didn’t want her to tell me she saw this. I blushed at this.
“I will truly miss that,” Edward sighed. Startled, I looked up at my husb— Edward. He just smiled my favorite crooked smile; I think he liked scaring me.
I just rolled my eyes. He had taken to listing the human things he would miss when he changed me, always noting his affinity for the rush of blood in my cheeks that happened so often.
“What are you thinking about?” he laughed.
“N-nothing…” I stammered. He was curved around me on the bed without me even realizing it, his face in my hair. I squirmed around so that I could face him, smiling. “How are you?” I asked so to move the conversation away from me.
He searched me with his unbelievably beautiful eyes – ocher today after the hunt – “I am fine, Bella love. How are you?” He wasn’t going to let it go.
“I was just thinking about today…and Alice…” I trailed off, the blood rushing back to my face.
His smiled widened with understanding. “She would be just as embarrassed as you are to see that.” I wasn’t sure that was true.
I assume so that I would relax, Edward pressed his lips against my forehead softly. “Is that all I get after spending an entire night in this bed by myself?” I teased.
“You didn’t even know I was gone until you woke up this morning, you were long asleep before we left,” he chuckled. “Besides, in order for us to do this, I had to take every precaution.”
I had to roll my eyes at him again. He was so worried about this, so convinced that he was capable of hurting me, I was certain of just the opposite.
Putting his had under my chin he raised my head so that our lips would meet. My heart raced as it always did when we were this close. He lips softly moving over mine, he smiled. “Hmm, it will be a shame when that doesn’t happen anymore.” I pulled my face from his and searched his expression. He looked sad, and stressed.
“You know, it isn’t happening today…unless you want to get it over with tonight?” I told him quietly.
He just smiled and pulled my face to his again. This time the kiss was more urgent, more passionate. His hands moved from my hair and chin to my waist. He pulled me closer to him, if that was possible. I wrapped my leg around his hip. He moved from kissing my lips, to my jaw, to my neck, and finally across my collarbone. I pressed against him, my hands wrapped in his hair. Breathless, he pulled away. “Ready?”
“Umm, yeah, but I thought that was pretty clear?” Why did he stop?
Amusement filled his face, “Bella, we are not doing this here, remember?”
I did. “Oh, yeah, but when you kiss me like that I barely remember my name.” Now he rolled his eyes.
“Our meadow?” he asked, knowing the answer. We had talked about this. Everything had started there; it was only appropriate that this happen there. No one would be around, especially six vampires with exceptional hearing.
“Let’s go!” I wasn’t as nervous anymore. I was ready.
