Bella’s POV

This party was starting to get even more ridiculous. Alice had seen how down I was looking and somehow thought that karaoke was the way to cheer me up. She had to see that it wasn’t the proper route to take.

“All right everybody; it’s karaoke time”

I gave Alice a death stare. This was stupid. Alice handed Edward the microphone.

“Bella, love, shall we start things out with a duet?”

I blushed because he was talking into the microphone, and Alice ghosted to my side to whisper, “You have no choice. Now, get up there!”

I made my way up to the raised area. The best part of my life handed me a microphone and turned to the karaoke machine to select a song. The beginning music began to play so I turned to the screen to see what song he had chosen. The part before the first chorus was Edward’s and then I got the chorus.

“I could stay awake just to hear you breathing; watch you smile while you are sleeping; while you’re far away and dreaming. I could spend my life in the sweet surrender. I could stay lost in this moment forever; every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.”

Uh-oh, my turn.

“I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep ‘cause I’d miss you baby, and I don’t want to miss a thing. ‘Cause even when I dream of you, the sweetest dream won’t ever do; I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing.”

“Lying close to you; feeling your heart beating and I’m wondering what you’re dreaming; wondering if it’s me you’re seeing. Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we’re together. I just want to stay with you; in this moment forever, forever, and ever, and I”

“I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep ‘cause I’d miss you baby, and I don’t want to miss a thing. ‘Cause even when I dream of you, the sweetest dream won’t ever do; I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing.”

The next part was for both of us to sing and I was glad to have Edward’s beautiful voice there to mask my horrible one.

“I don’t want to miss one smile. I don’t want to miss one kiss. I just want to be with you, right here with you, just like this. I just want to hold you close and feel your heart so close to mine and just stay here in this moment for all the rest of time. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.”

After that I had to do the chorus by myself again.

“I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep ‘cause I’d miss you baby, and I don’t want to miss a thing. ‘Cause even when I dream of you, the sweetest dream won’t ever do; I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing. I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep ‘cause I’d miss you baby, and I don’t want to miss a thing. ‘Cause even when I dream of you, the sweetest dream won’t ever do; I’d still miss you baby and I don’t want to miss a thing. Don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep, yeah, and I don’t want to miss a thing.”

The final chorus was repeated twice and then we were done. Edward pulled me into his arms and kissed my forehead.

“It wasn’t that bad was it, my angel.”

“I suppose it could have been worse. Now, once we get away from the crowd, I think I deserve a real kiss for my effort and cooperation.”

My favorite smile lit up his face.

“Why wait to get away from the crowd?”

With that he kissed me softly and tenderly, while we were still standing in front of everyone at the party.

“I love you, my dear, sweet, loving Bella. I love you more than anything imaginable. You are the only reason that I can make it through a single day on this earth as happy as I am.”

He was whispering in my ear as he held me close before the cheering and awing crowd.

“I love you, too. Nothing makes me happier than to be in your arms, just like this. You picked the perfect song.”

“That’s just about what I’m thinking almost every night while you sleep, love. Don’t be mad at Alice; karaoke was my idea. I wanted to sing that song with you.”

We walked off of the makeshift stage and went to our own private corner of the room. I smiled as he put his arms around me again and leaned my head against his icy chest. He knew that tonight was going to be bad- maybe not exactly how bad, I mean, Jacob, Quil, and Embry showing up had put a major damper on things but he couldn’t have known that would happen- yet, somehow, he had known how to appease Alice and make me happy at the same time.

“I’m glad that we sang together.”

He laughed quietly and kissed me.

“I’m glad, too, love,” he said before kissing me passionately. This kiss was different than many of the others we had shared. Only a small few of those kisses had lasted very long or been this enthusiastic. His lips caressed mine lovingly and mine moved with his in a way that answered every question that could possibly be asked. When we broke apart, I was light-headed.

“Breathe, love. Well, I believe that we just drove Jasper to the brink of insanity. Someday, we’ll have to try to pushing him over the edge. It would be very interesting to see what he would do.”

We both laughed. Tonight was a strange night; Edward normally didn’t kiss me like this so many times in a row. Just as this thought was occurring to me, Edward pressed his lips to mine again. This kiss was like the last two in many ways but there were so many emotions with it; love, passion, desire, want, need, yearning, and so many other things that I couldn’t comprehend. It felt like we had been kissing for hours, but he didn’t stop kissing me. I’m sure that the kiss would have lasted much longer if Emmett hadn’t walked over to us.

“Hey, you guys, Alice and Jasper are making out in the kitchen. I don’t know what brought that on, but I’m guessing that it involves the two of you. So I’d just like to say; good job. Rose and I have been trying to drive him over the edge like that for years!”

He walked away and Edward held me close. Right now, the last thing I wanted to do was leave the position that I was in.

“I love you, Edward.”

“I love you, too, my sweet Isabella.”
