"Breath, Bella. Everything’s going to be fine. Just calm down." Alice, squeezed my hand before dancing down the isle to take her place as maid of honor.
She was the last one to go before me. I was next. I was the one everyone wanted to see. Why did Edward insist on getting married!
I heard the music start and my heart skipped a beat. The double door of the church opened and I saw the most wonderful sight. Now I knew why Edward wanted to get married.
All I saw was him. He was standing at the alter, giving me that crooked smile. Alice had talked him into wearing a tuxedo. The red was beautiful against the black and white. I didn’t even realize that I was walking towards him until I was right next to him, looking up into his light, golden eyes.
I came to stand beside him, and watched his smile grow wider. My heart was going a thousand miles a minute. I felt it pounding in my chest.
"You look beautiful." He whispered, exciting my heart even more.
"A beautiful day for a wedding!" The priest said, rasing his hands up. "It is a great joy to bind Edward Anthony Mason Cullen to Isabella Marie Swan. It is a great thing to find a love as true and pure as their love is at such a young age. Nothing will ever separate the two you see standing before you."
My breathing hitched. We were one day closer to what I wanted out of the deal. The reason we were about to be married. The thing that caused Edward so much worry at night.
"Before we proceed does anyone here object to the union of these two?"
I looked at Charlie. He looked very peaceful. My eyes shot to Jasper who was also looking at Charlie. He was doing that little trick of his to keep Charlie down in his seat. My eyes returned to Edward and he looked relieved. Charlie wasn’t going to do anything stupid. At least something was going right.
"Then let us continue!" My heart skipped a beat, Edward grinned.
"Edward Anthony Mason Cullen, do you take Isabella Marie Swan to be your wife? To love and protect her through the long road of marriage? Do you promise to be there when she needs you most?"
"Isabella Marie Swan, do you take Edward Anthony Mason Cullen to be your husband? To support him through your long years together? Do you promise to be there through thick and thin for him?"
That’s when Hell came to town. Edward’s face froze into a mask of barley controlled terror and rage. Alice let out a little gasp behind me, looking to Jasper. Emmet had vanished.
An alarm went off and water poured down on us. Women shrieked and ran out. They had pulled the fire alarm. Edward’s arm was a band of steel around my waist. Everyone was running out of the church.
"Bella, run into the woods. Go out the back. Wait for me there. Go with the werewolves if they show up." Edward muttered in my ear, pushing me towards a hidden door.
I ran through the door and through the passage way that let out at the back of the church. It was really raining outside now. There went the dress Alice had gotten me.
I dashed for the trees, just feet away from the back of the church door. I just wasn’t fast enough or coordinated enough.
I tripped over my dress, going down face first. I shoved my hands in front of me to soften the fall, and I heard fabric rip. I tried to get back up, but something came crashing down on my back and something cracked.
I looked up into the red eyes of a someone from the Volturi and screamed.
