Ok this is a total one shot. I was actually just using this as a brainstorming session for my other story, Which Fantasy will she Live? They are in no way related and I just kept working on this one. I really like it, especially for an idea that I just got carried away with. So Read and Review! Kenz
1. Chapter 1: My Fantasy
Rating 4.5/5 Word Count 2007 Review this Chapter
I stared into the mirror, taking one last look at my reflection, before I was Mrs. Bella Cullen. I couldn't believe that I was getting married. Alice had decided to have the wedding outside, ‘seeing' that the weather would be nice. We would have the rather small service in the backyard of the Cullen house, the background ‘music' being the nearby stream. The service would be about 15 minutes, Edward didn't mind it being short and I couldn't agree more.
The seating consisted of folding chairs; they were organized into perfect rows, on either side of the aisle. The Alter was under an arbor that was woven with white roses. Each one was perfectly placed by Alice, of course.
The reception would be in the Cullen's magnificent house, extending, once again, into the backyard. Alice had decided that the theme would be fairytales, but not to the extreme. I had made her promise not to go all Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty on me. She said-no- swore she wouldn't. Alice had promised a whimsical and airy atmosphere though.
So here I was, at my perfect wedding, in my long gown, which did kind of remind me of a fairytale. It had an embroidered, lacey bodice bottom. I hated to admit it, but Alice was right, the dress was perfect, for Edward...and me too.
The bridesmaid dresses were ice blue, and looked absolutely unreal on Rosalie and Alice. They were very dreamy in the way the fabric flowed. It was perfect; everything was perfect.
Alice walked into her huge closet, where I had been waiting, just then and began to undo the various zippers, to get my dress out of the garment bag. Then, she carefully (but still blindingly fast) undid the ribbon that was the closure to the gown.
"Bella, are you going to undress yourself, or do I have to do that too?" Alice asked in a joking tone. I smiled and started to undress. When I was done Alice put on a ridiculous amount of clothing on, under my dress. (I was glad she knew what to do, because I was immediately confused.) Finally, (after my makeup was layered on, I might add) she laced up the back of my dress and gave me one final approving look.
"Do you like it?" Alice asked, in a truly curious tone, even through I was sure she had already seen my answer.
"Yes and Edward will too. I know he will..." I said already tearing up.
"Now Bella, try not to cry all the makeup away before you even walk down the isle!" Alice said joking again.
"Ha, Ha very funny."
Alice did my hair, carefully pinning up each strand in a messy, but old romantic styled look. Just as she finished up, some one knocked on the door...
"Edward! Go away! You must not see her now...just wait 15 minutes then you can see her down the aisle!" Alice called in an irritated voice.
"Just let me give you this then I will go," He said calmly through the shut door.
"Uh, fine hold on" Alice huffed. She shut me in her huge closet, leaving me sitting on the futon in the middle. She was back in seconds, with a black box in her hand. "Edward said he wanted to give this to you before the wedding, to where with the dress. He said not to stress out about it cause in 30 minutes what is his will be yours." Alice recited.
She handed me the box, and I opened it up with a small smile on my face. Inside, nestled in the black velvet was a magnificent diamond and sapphire necklace. I took it out of the box and held it up. Alice and I gasped at the same time; it must be at least 20 carets of stone, costing a fortune.
"Wow...I didn't even see this one coming" Alice whispered. Still staring at the jewels. A few minutes later, she was closing the clasp around my neck. When I stood up for one last look, I realized what Edward's gift meant to me. I was brought to tears again, and this time, Alice wrapped an arm around my waist, looking like she would cry, if she could.
When I arrived at the start if the long piece of fabric lying on the ground that served as an isle, I looked around, taking in my surroundings. Alice was right, it was a beautiful day, and she had done a fabulous job decorating, as I knew she would. Each folding chair was covered with a piece of very light blue fabric. And the canopy set up above, had blue ribbons tied around the posts.
Every thing went together... but in a good way, not the matchy, matchy annoying way that I hated. It was perfect. I was a beautiful bride, and all eyes were on me (and Edward's necklace), the crowd rose up out of their seats, and the wedding march started.
Charlie led me down the isle, in the way that I promised him. He seemed pleased that he had made it here without throwing things...again. (When we had told him of the plans he actually threw the glass he was holding, at Edward, making it shatter across the floor, when he missed.) We made our way down the isle, and I was doing great smiling and looking like a ravishing bride should on her wedding day. I was very careful not to look at the bridal party standing directly in front of me though, knowing I would stop in my tracks when I saw my dazzling fiancée. So instead I looked around at my friends and family all staring at me. Angela and Ben (holding hands), Jessica and Mike (holding hands also. They had made up at the Cullen's graduation party.), and others all were facing towards me. Renee was crying, Phil trying to comfort her, with no success seeing that she was weeping harder than ever. Esme and Carlisle were also facing me, looking like the model parents of the groom, like the ones that you only saw in the movies.
When I was only a few steps from the Alter; I could not help but to look at Edward.
Edward. There he was, dazzling me more than ever, in his perfectly fitting tux, staring at me... only me. He seemed oblivious to the family and friends, surrounding us. It was him and me that was all that mattered. As I got closer, I could almost see him glowing; his happiness almost tangible....
That moment made everything worthwhile. He was happy and I was too. As Charlie passed my hand to his, Edward practically blinded me with his smile. The wedding went through in a blur, I recited the words that were required of me, and I slipped the shiny engraved platinum ring on his finger, he did the same for me. I tried not to stare at him too much, but I didn't succeed. I found myself frequently glancing at him and getting lost in his eyes, as he stared at me, too.
At the reception, I couldn't help but glance down at my new wedding ring, which matched Elizabeth Mason's, being solid gold, and studded in diamonds, around the message:
My Life, Soul, and Forever are in you
I couldn't help the small tear that slipped out every time I read it. Edward had seen me glance down at it, kissing me each time.
The reception was perfect, too. (As I knew it would be, with Alice in charge.) The food was great; someone, whose business was located in Seattle, had agreed to catered it. Each dish was a work of art.
After the dinner, came the toasts. Alice, being my maid-of-honor, made the first one....
"Bella, I am so happy to have you as my new sister! Not only have we already had many great times together, but also you have improved Edward's attitude and life. But he's always happier when he's around you...." She went on to wish us happy college years and luck throughout our years together...forever.
The toasts went on, continuing with Jasper, Edward's best man (sign of forgiveness for the disastrous birthday, I think), Esme, Carlisle, Renee, and finally Charlie. The Cullen's all talked about how Edward had improved, and how happy they were that I had joined their family.
Renee talked about how I seemed happier, more confident, and lastly how proud of me she was. Lastly, Charlie talked about how glad he was that I had moved in with him, how Edward had improved my life, and the changes he had seen in me since we had met. He finished with a touching statement on how he knew Edward would take care of me, for a long time to come, how he knew we would work out, being together till our lives came to an end. (I knew this would never happen, but the remark still touched my heart.)
The first dance... Edward would never admit how much it meant to him, but I could tell he wanted it more and more as the days passed, the wedding getting closer. If one dance made him happy, I could manage, for him... one dance.
Edward had chosen the song for the first dance. I had no idea what he had in store. He had said it was a surprise. When it was time for the moment, Edward stood up, and I followed him onto the dance floor. He wrapped one arm around my waist, and felt me slightly shaking, as I wrapped my arms around his neck, leaning into his chest.
Realizing I was nervous, he kissed me, and then whispered quietly in my ear, "I love that necklace on you, you look more than ravishing." He whispered. "I love you, Bella. Don't be afraid... Just follow, Love, just follow." He sang the lyrics of the song to me, slowly making me relax and enjoy the moment more than I ever thought possible...."Every time our eyes meet This feeling inside me Is almost more than I can take Baby when you touch me I can feel how much you love me And it just blows me away I've never been this close to anyone or anything I can hear your thoughts I can see your dreams I don't know how you do what you do I'm so in love with you It just keeps getting better I wanna spend the rest of my life With you by my side Forever and ever Every little thing that you do Baby I'm amazed by you The smell of your skin The taste of your kiss The way you whisper in the dark Your hair all around me Baby you surround me You touch everyplace in my heart Oh it feels like the first time every time I wanna spent the whole night in your eyes Every little thing that you do I'm so in love with you It just keeps getting better I wanna spend the rest of my life With you by my side Forever and ever Every little thing that you do Oh, every little thing that you do Baby I'm amazed by you"
I almost cried hearing the soft lyrics in his velvet voice. I knew they were all for me, because he had already proved them, often more than once.When the song was over, he kissed me, and though everyone clapped, I didn't notice. It was like they were a faint noise, not important, in the background. I, however, was lost in my Edward, and in my fantasy....
