When the train finally stopped, I groaned softly, "I don't wanna leave. It's so...peaceful here."

Edward kissed my temple and said, "Mm...I know, love. But, we've got to go sometime."

I could stay like this with him literally forever. I never wanted to leave his arms again. I had no reason to. And being here made it even more perfect.

"Yeah, but we've got forever." I teased, as the other passengers began to depart from the train.

"Yes, but they don't know that. After a decade or so, they'll start to ask questions. Come on, you still have to see the best part."

"This wasn't the best part!" I said, incredulously.

"Not even close." He said, smiling slightly, "Come on. Trust me. You won't regret it."

"Fine!" I said, irritably, forcing myself to get up and follow the crowds out.

Edward placed his hands on my shoulders and led me out slightly.

We stepped out to see a one-horse looking town with little shops and small town people, who immediately looked at me and Edward, in awe of our inhumane looks.

Edward was clearly used to the attention, as he simply ignored them and continued walking, but it was driving me crazy. How did they do this; with people staring at them all the time? I would never get used to it. I wished they would all just...look away. Or pretend not to look.

I cringed slightly and he chuckled softly, "You better get used to it, Bella, it's going to happen a lot."

I groaned and he wrapped his arms around me from behind, "Oh, come on, like people didn't gawk after you as a human. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that. Nothing's changed."

"No, everything's changed." I protested, "No one looked at me like that when I was human."

"Hah!" He snorted, "That you're aware of. You're just so oblivious that you forced yourself to ignore it. Everyone here is thinking the exact same thing that all the students were your first day at school in Forks. Nothing has changed, believe me."

I scoffed, "Oh, shut it."

He pulled me in closer and rested his chin on my shoulder, holding me like this as we walked through the town, not failing to turn a single head.

He kissed my temple as we walked, trailing his lips down my jawbone and then to my lips, kissing me softly once before whispering, "I love you."

"I love you, too," I said, smiling and pulling his arms tighter around me, caressing his forearms as I did so.

We walked around like this, not having any problems at all--which was quite a nice change for me--and looked at the different shops, which all sold different antiques.

The whole town was surrounded by mountains. It was so incredibly beautiful. Nothing could compare to the beauty of this place--nothing human anyway. Edward put all beauty to shame.

"It's so peaceful here," I said, softly, "Maybe when we have to move again, we can move here. I like it."

"Yeah?" He asked, considering it, "Hm. I'll have to mention it to Carlisle. It would be a nice place to live definitely.

We came across a little shop that had period type costumes and you could dress in any period you wanted and they would take pictures of you.

"Wow..." I said, "That's kinda cool."

"Yeah, it really is." Edward said, suggestively, trying to make eye contact with me, using his advantage of dazzling me to convince me.

I avoided his eyes, "No. Edward, please...no. I don't want to. I hate taking pictures. I haven't looked good in a picture since I was 5-years-old."

"Oh, come on. It'll be kind of fun. We could show it to little Edward," he rubbed my stomach instinctively, "and he could see what times were like when I was alive...so to speak." He added, smirking at the irony.

"Okay, then you go and I'll wait for you out here."

"No way. We're both doing it; you don't have a choice."

"Aw, man! Please--"

"Don't argue with me, Bella, you know I'll win." He grabbed my hand and jerked me inside.

I sighed irritably, but put on a good sport face and allowed him to make me do it. He did seem pretty happy about it and I wanted nothing more than to make him as happy as possible.

The woman behind the counter staggered back slightly at Edward's appearance and stammered, "Wow! I mean, hi--hi. What--I--you--can I help you? What can I do you? Do FOR you?" She added, clearly nervous and at a loss for words. Aw, yes, I'd been there before. I revisited that place many times, in fact.

I struggled not to laugh, but managed to contain it.

"Hi," Edward said, using his soft, velvety voice. Did he even know how cruel that was? Poor girl had no idea what had hit her. "Do you have time for a quick shoot?" He asked, smiling his crooked smile.

Again! Oh, poor girl. I so sympathized with her, knowing exactly how that was.

"Yeah...we have...the costumes back in the dressing rooms. Take a look and let me know when you're ready." She couldn't take her eyes off him. Now, my sympathy was becoming rage.

"Yeah, okay, thank you." I said, pulling Edward towards the dressing room. "Horny bitch!" I muttered under my breath to Edward.

He chuckled, slightly appalled, "Bella!"

"What?! She clearly needs a cold shower." I replied.

"Relax, will you? You know you have nothing to worry about."

"I know; I just don't like other girls thinking about you like that. That's MY job."

"I know exactly how you feel. Now you know how it was for me when all the guys were tripping all over you. I won't even tell you what they were thinking; it even scared me. And I've seen a lot of crap in my day."

I chuckled. "All right. Let's get this over with."

"Love you," he said as he walked into his dressing room.

"Yeah, yeah," I said, irritably, walking into mine.

When we came out, we took several photographs that made us look like we were right of the '20s time period and then we got changed again and then bought one of the pictures.

We took off and Edward said, "See, love...it wasn't that bad."

"Yeah, guess not. But, do not let anyone see it or I'll--"

"You'll what?" He said, with a chuckle.

"Have to punish you, I'm afraid," I said, pulling him closer to me by the collar of his shirt and smiled before kissing him.

When I pulled away, he led us over to behind a building and said, "We clear?"

"Yeah, I think so." I said, looking around to confirm it.

"Then, let's go." He said, taking my hand.

I smiled at him and we took off running, him leading me merely following where he was going. I didn't know where we were off to, but wherever it was, I deeply looked forward to it. I looked so forward to spending my every second with him. It was so exhilarating, so beautiful, that I began to run even faster, enjoying the feel of it, understanding now his rush in it.
