He held out his hand to me with my favorite smile playing on his face. He looked so much better then a God and the best part was that he was all mine. I still didn’t think that I deserved him.I took his hand without hesitating. We walked out to the car; he had his special occasion’s car waiting for us in the lot in front of my house.

“You look so beautiful today,” he whispered in my ear.I blushed lightly at his comment and he stroked my cheek with his free hand.

“You don’t look half bad yourself.” I replied embarking on a complete lie.

He just laughed.

We drove for a while sitting in silence, he was holding my hand and stroking it with his thumb. Moonlight by Yiruma was playing and I was perfectly content. We drove all the way to Seattle and pulled up in front of a tavern.

“What are we doing here?” I asked suddenly suspicious of his motives.

All he did was look at me innocently as he guided me inside. The tavern was not as packed with as many people as I thought it would be for a Saturday night. But then again it was still rather early considering it was only about nine. I saw the poster on the wall then. I gasped in shock and turned to Edward.

“Please tell me that you are the one that will be doing the singing for tonight and I am here as a mere spectator.”

He shook his head no and let out a small chuckle at my expression.“Don’t worry love. It will be great! All I ask for is one song. Just one and then we can leave right after if you want.”

“Edward! Karaoke? I don’t sing, I can’t sing. This is going to be so embarrassing; I will probably fall on my face on the way up there. This isn’t going to end well.”

“Humor me,” was all he said.

“Fine, I will sing one song. Just one, but you have to sing one too.” I said fuming, I knew I couldn’t argue with him considering he would probably just try to temper with my mind and win.

He laughed this time and I couldn’t help but be slightly befuddled. “What?”

“I was planning on doing just that anyway.” He replied laughing again.

We took our seats after standing in the doorway for a little too long and blocking people’s entrance into the tavern. We sat at a small table in the middle of the room.

People started filling in all around us and he order me a drink. I was sitting there going through my head of all of the songs that I knew and that I could possibly sing and nothing stuck out to me. This was awful! I was going to make a complete and total fool of myself and worst of all was that Edward has asked me to do this one thing that I knew I would probably mess up! Ugh, this was just great.

He clearly saw the stress on my face and so to reassure me he took my hand, looked deep in my eyes and said: “Love, you know you have nothing to worry about. Everything will be alright. Even if you do make a fool of yourself it will be ok because at least you tried.”

I calmed as soon as he said his first few words to me. He was so amazingly good to me I felt that I didn’t deserve him what so ever. But he was mine and I was his and nothing would ever change that.

“Great, thanks. But I don’t know what song I’m going to sing. Do you happen to have one in mind for me?” I asked hoping that he would have one for me and I would be less of a fool.

“No, I don’t but I’m sure you will pick a great one.” He replied.

This was just great.“Alright, I’ll think about it maybe something will come to me. I wish they had a list of songs or something,” I said getting really frustrated now.

He leaned over the table and kissed me lightly, trying to ease my frustrations. It worked too and then suddenly it was like I had an epiphany and knew exactly which song I would sing. It was the most perfect song; I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t thought of it before.

As he leaned back I said;“I found the song that I want to sing but I’m not going to tell you,” I said with a coy little smile.

“I will let you go first though.” He chuckled at me but didn’t say anything.

Just then a big and bulky man took the stage and began talking about tonight’s show.

“Welcome to the Green on Green Tavern. I would like to officially welcome you to our annual Karaoke night. Let me first start by outlining some ground rules for the audience. The votes will be cast by you of course. I ask that you look out for the best performance and cast your vote on the little white ballots that shall be distributed in just a little bit. The person with the most votes at the end of the night will be considered the winner and will be awarded 300 dollars. Good luck to all performs and let the show begin! Our first performer is Tessa Cole performing Haunted by Kelly Clarkson. Let’s hear a round of applause guys.” The announcer concluded just as the Tavern erupted with cheers and Tessa stepped on stage.

I was really starting to get nervous seeing that there was no general order to who was performing when and that I could get picked at any point in time during the night.

Edward still holding my hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze. I felt slightly better.

Tessa was a tall blonde; she had a slim figure and amazing blue eyes. Her voice was sweet and practically perfect for slower songs. She did do a good job of this song though. I could tell as she sang the last lines that she felt a little disappointed with herself having hoped to do a better job. I clapped warmly for her having understood her emotions completely.

There were another five people after her before it was Edward’s turn; I was relieved that he got to go before me.

There was a wide range in genres for the songs and most people pulled off the songs respectively. I was starting to feel the competition but knew that Edward would blow them all away with his performance.

“Alright, all of these performances have amazing and now it is time for Edward Cullen to come up.”

He stood up then in all his beauty and grace and made it over to the stage. Taking the microphone he made a dedication before starting the song.

“I would like to dedicate this song to my beautiful fiancée Bella Swan.”

I could feel my face growing hot from all of the sudden attention as everyone turned to have a look at me but I didn’t care because he was singing to me and I could see the love he had for me written all over his face as the song began.

I was mesmerized from the moment he sang the first line of the song. I’ll admit I had never heard this song before but it was amazing. If anything it was the most perfect song to describe our relationship.

His voice was perfect of course. I had only heard him hum my lullaby before but that was nothing in comparison to this. He stood there in all his majesty keeping eye contact with me the whole time. I could not and would not break it for I understood that this was for me and just for me.

I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didn’t believe in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

It was the most romantic thing he had ever done for me. I couldn’t help but watch him through tears and a huge smile on my face. I loved him so much and made sure that he saw it in my eyes.

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

He concluded his song and made a swift bow. He got off the stage then and came over to me. I jumped up from my seat, threw myself into his arms and said “You were amazing!” followed by what I deemed a very passionate kiss then.

“I love you.” He said as I pulled away.

“I love you too.” I responded.

“Well there you have it ladies and gentlemen. That was very well done Edward. Let me now introduced you to our next act: the very beautiful Bella Swan.”

He said with a laugh and a gesture to me. I let go of Edward and made my way over to the stage solemnly. I was so nervous that I was practically shaking.

I stepped onto the bright stage turned and faced the microphone. Amazingly I hadn’t managed to make a fool of myself, yet.

“I would like to dedicate this song to Edward.” I said as I locked eye contact with him just as he did with me. He was smiling at me and I immediately felt calmer.

One, two, three
Counting out the signs we see
The tall buildings
Fading in the distance
Only dots on a map
Four, five, six
The two of us a perfect fit
You're all mine, all mine

And all I can say
Is you blow me away

Like an apple on a tree
Hiding out behind the leaves
I was difficult to reach
But you picked me
Like a shell upon a beach
Just another pretty piece
I was difficult to see
But you picked me
Yeah you picked me

So softly
Rain against the windows
And the strong coffee
Warming up my fingers
In this fisherman's house
You got me
Searched the sand
And climbed the tree
And brought me back down

And all I can say
Is you blow me away

Like an apple on a tree
Hiding out behind the leaves
I was difficult to reach
But you picked me
Like a shell upon a beach
Just another pretty piece
I was difficult to see
But you picked me
Yeah you picked me

This time it was Edward who hugged me when I got off the stage with the sound of applause and cheers surrounding me.

“I’m so proud of you. You sounded amazing, what was all that about not being able to sing?” He said clearly abashed by my lie.

“Because I can’t sing, that was awful compared to how well you and everyone else sounded. You have a biased opinion.” I said laughing slightly.

“No, didn’t you here the cheers when you got of the stage?”

“Nope, I was too intent on getting to you in one piece.”

“Silly Bella,” was all that he managed as we sat down.

“Thanks for that great song Bella, you sounded great.” He said as I nodded and smiled at him while blushing, astounded that this man thought I sounded good.

After me there were eight more performers, they were all very talented people and then the competition ended. The ballots were collected and counted by the announcer and D.J.

All we could do was sit and wait patiently.

“So who did you vote for love?” Edward asked.

“I really liked that Tessa girl at the beginning and you were good of course, but it was that rapper that won me over and I chose him.” I said innocently.

He was shocked by my response but quickly caught on that I was joking.

“I voted for you of course. You silly goose, you blew me away with your performance!” I amended laughingly.

“Very well,” He said laughing also “I voted for you too.”

"Why would you do that? It’s a waste of a vote there were so many people here that were better than me here.” I said appalled.

Just then the announcer came back on stage so he didn’t get a chance to respond.

“Well it was a close vote. The winner of tonight’s show by one vote is Bella Swan!”

The tavern then erupted into loud cheers and applause. I was shocked and slowly felt my face go red. I was certainly not expecting this.

“Congratulations love.” Edward said as I made my way over to the stage.

The announcer gave me a hug and handed to me a little plaque that showed I was the winner of tonight’s contest and an envelope with 300 dollars.

I thanked the man politely and stepped down from the stage.

People were still cheering and clapping for me as I moved myself over to Edward too stunned and confused to process anything right now.

“Thanks to everyone for coming out and thanks to all of our contestants for participating. Have a great night everyone and we hope to see you all again next week.” And with that it all ended, I made my way back over to Edward.

“Congratulations love.” He said again as he hugged and kissed me.

“Did you bribe them?” I asked as he pulled away much to my disappointment.

Now it was his turn to be shocked. “No, I didn’t. You really didn’t hear yourself did you? You really did sound amazing.”

“Are you serious? I was awful. There were people here that deserve this award more than me. You’re an example.”

“You’re impossible Bella. It’s a good thing I decided to record your act tonight so we can go back to my house and I will show you.” He said as he took hold of my waist and we made our way back to the car and to his house. We arrived at the big white house about an hour later.

We pulled up and Alice met us at the door. She was bouncing up and down squealing and gushing over how well I did. She clearly had a vision about what we were doing tonight. I sighed as I got out of the car and she ran over and hugged me.

“Edward come on, the T.V. is all set up for you so let’s go watch this thing!” she said before she ran inside with me by her side.

She plopped me down on the sofa beside Esme and Emmett. Everyone was so excited for this video that Edward managed to sneak of me; I looked over to see how Jasper was handling all of this. He was jumping up and down in his seat just like Alice, but he didn’t seem to be enjoying it all that much. He caught me looking at him; he winked and smiled while sending calming waves my way. I guessed that he felt the disappointment that I felt for everyone.

The video started then and Edward came to sit beside me. He gathered me onto his lap and whispered reassurances into my ear. I felt slightly calmer but started blushing when everyone saw my dedication. Alice was beaming along with Esme, Emmett laughed a little. Carlisle and Jasper just smiled and Rosalie who managed to sneak into the room stood at the back and had a shadow of a smile playing on her face.

I started to sing then and felt my jaw flow wide open when I heard myself. Everyone around me laughed at my reaction.

“You really didn’t hear yourself did you?” Edward asked.

“I thought I did, but I guess not.” I replied dumbfounded.

I really did sound amazing which was a major surprise. I always believed that I sounded awful and refrained from singing whenever possible. I couldn’t believe that this was me.

“Edward, are you sure you didn’t tamper with this so that I wouldn’t feel bad at how terrible I really sound.”

Everyone burst out laughing at that, include Rosalie. Emmett was the loudest of them all and I cracked at the smile at that.

“No love, I assure you that this is purely you.” Edward said after settling down.

“Wow.” Was all I managed to say.

After the video concluded everyone burst out in applause.

Esme came over and hugged me and told me I sounded wonderful. Rosalie did the same which was a real shock to me but I guess she was starting to warm up to me. Emmett managed a bear hug and walked away laughing with Rosalie. Carlisle congratulated me on my winnings and walked off with Esme. Alice hugged me also while Jasper stayed back and smiled at me. They too walked off and Edward carried me into our bedroom.

“I told you so.” Edward said as he laid me down.

I laughed at him. “You know, I really did believe that I couldn’t sing. This was a real shocker. Thanks for taping it for me.”

“Anything for you, love.” He replied with a smile.

I started to drift off as he cuddled me close.
