“Charlie, do you mind if Bella spends the night with me tonight? I’m going to get bored if my only company is boys. No offense, but I need a little girl time every once in a while. I plan on stocking up enough to last me until I can borrow Bella again.”
“Can I, Dad?”
“That’s fine with me. Don’t stay up too late.”
Jasper showed off the car to Charlie as Alice and Bella packed some clothes for her stay. When he was finished, Jasper turned to me and asked, “Do you mind if Alice and Bella take one of the cars, I want to talk to you?”
“We’ll take my car; I want to drive.”
The girls came out of the house, and we said goodbye to Charlie. We left and I drove as fast as I possible so I could get Bella back in my arms again. I did just that when Jasper and I got home. The girls had beaten us there and Bella started threatening Alice as soon as she saw me.
“Alice, I’m telling you right now, I don’t care how strong you are, NO MAKEOVERS. I refuse to be Guinea Pig Barbie. I’m a person, not a mannequin.”
“I had my reasons for inviting you over, and nothing you can say will deter me. I wasn’t planning any makeovers, and what I have planned you will thank me for.”
Alice beamed, and looked at me expectantly.
“That’s not up to me, Alice. Now will you please take Bella to my room and wait for Jasper and I to set things up down here? You can listen to music and talk about us. You know my CD rule.”
I grabbed Bella and ran upstairs. We got to Edward’s room and I sat her on the couch.
“What’s his CD rule, and what are they setting up?”
“If he finds a single CD out of place, he’ll throw the one responsible through a boulder. The only exceptions to that rule are Carlisle, Esme, and you, but if you misplaced a CD while we were up here he’d blame me. As for their preparations downstairs, you’ll find out soon enough.”
I laughed and closed my eyes. I could see things perfectly. Bella’s decision was the only thing missing. Emmett’s holiday idea had worked magnificently.
“Is anything interesting going to happen?”
I grinned and nodded.
“I’m not going to tell, though. You’ll find out very soon.”
Edward flew into the room and said, “All done. My sweet Bella, if you would please accompany me downstairs, I have a surprise for you. Alice, Jasper is in your guys’ room waiting for you.”
I dashed into the room, and Jasper pulled me close. He kissed me passionately. Edward’s good mood had taken over Jasper. We sat together and listened to the conversation below.
I told Bella to cover her eyes.
“If you peek, I’ll blindfold you.”
“Okay, I’m not peeking.”
I was nervous but decided. I was going to ask the best thing that had ever happened to me to be my wife. I took a deep breath that I didn’t need and sat her down in her position. I took her hands in mine and kissed the backs of both. She opened her eyes and looked around, gasping as she took in the surroundings. There were rose petals and candles all over the floor and piano. Jasper and I had cleared away the furniture. She looked back at me with wonder in her eyes.
“What is all of this for?”
As if to answer her question, I got down on one knee, still holding her hands. I stared up at my angel as tears of understanding filled her eyes. Love filled her features and gave me the strength to speak.
“Isabella Swan, I love you so much. You are the best part of my life. I want to spend every moment with you for the rest of eternity. To me, you are the queen of the universe. I count every second with you as a blessing I don’t deserve. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”
I pulled the ring box out of my pocket and opened it. Her eyes widened when she saw the ring. She looked at me with so many emotions in her eyes and smiled.
I smiled back at her with the happiest smile that had ever shown on my face. I placed the ring on her left hand and kissed it. It was a perfect fit. I kissed her eyes, nose, cheeks, forehead, and finally her lips. Jasper and Alice came downstairs and congratulated us.
“Telling Charlie ought to be fun.”
“He already knows that I was planning to ask you tonight. When I talked to him outside of his house, I was asking him for permission to propose to you.”
“You asked for my father’s permission. Why am I not surprised? Does this mean you changed your mind about me becoming a vampire?”
“Yes, it does, but you can thank the rest of our family for that.”
“Why are you bouncing around like a kitten that has had too much cat nip, Alice?”
“Can I plan the wedding? Please, Bella, please. Can I? Can I? Can I? Pretty, pretty please, Bella.”
“Of course you can.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!”
She continued bouncing up and down until Jasper had to calm her. I held Bella close to me as Alice handed her a cell phone.
“It’s better if you get it over with now.”
I took the phone. She expected me to tell Renee, now. Couldn’t I enjoy this for a little bit before I got yelled at?
“I was counting on being able to invite her up here and have Jasper keep her calm while I sentenced myself to death. If the bride is murdered by her mother, how is there supposed to be a wedding?”
“She’s not going to kill you. Just call her.”
I dialed my mother’s number and Phil answered the phone.
“Hi, Phil, is my mom there?”
“Hi, Bella, she’s right here.”
“Bella, is everything okay? Are you all right?”
“I’m fine, mom. Everything’s great. I wanted to tell you something.”
“Isabella, you sound scared to death, what do want to tell me?”
I took a deep breath and a wave of calm settled over me. I gave Jasper a look of gratitude.
“I’m engaged. Edward and I are getting married.”
There was silence on the other end followed by a sharp intake of breath.
“You and Edward are doing what?”
She was struggling to stay calm but failing severely.
“We’re getting married after graduation. Please don’t be mad at me mom. I love Edward with all of my heart and he loves me.”
“What did Charlie have to say about this? Does he even know yet?”
“He knows that Edward was planning to ask. Edward had asked his permission to propose to me.”
“How long have you been engaged?”
“Five to ten minutes.”
“Wow! If you think he’ll make you happy and that you two can stay together, I won’t object.”
“I don’t think that, mom. I know it. Forks would have driven me insane by now if it weren’t for Edward. I wouldn’t want to spend the rest of my life with anyone else.”
“I hope you’re right.”
“I know I’m right. I love you, mom. Thanks for not killing me.”
“I love you too, Bella.”
She hung up. I gave Alice the phone.
“Renee is skeptical but I think I convinced her a little bit.”
“It’ll be fine, Bella. I love you.”
“I love you, too.”
Of course everything would be fine; I had Edward and we would be together forever.
