5 While you were away

I awoke the next morning in the arms of my angel. He was smiling his crooked grin down at me. I just turned to him and whispered, “Good morning my angel.” He looked at me with anguished eyes, but before he could object to me calling him an angel I kissed him as hard as I could.

Edward seemed unresponsive under me. I pulled away to look at his face. His eyes were suddenly fading from topaz to onyx.

I started to pull away, “Edward I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to. Are you okay?”

“Bella, I’m fine you just caught me off guard that’s all” He gave me a smile but not like his normal ones.

His eyes didn’t show it. I sat in front of him and stared at his eyes.

“Edward, you should go hunting today. You could use it.” He just gave me a glare from under his thick lashes. “Bella, I’m fine I just want to spend the rest of our last day together, until Alice takes you away.”

I looked at the clock it was about 1. I didn’t realize I had slept in so long.

“Since you decided to change me before the wedding I’ll go tell her that we don’t have to go dress shopping until after I’m changed. She’s not going to be happy. You can go today and we’ll still have tomorrow to do whatever we want.”

He slowly complied, gave me a quick kiss and said he’d be back later that evening.

I got up off the bed and went downstairs to find Esme in the kitchen with a plate of scrambled eggs, toast, and bacon on a plate for me. “Thank you Esme.”

“Your welcome Bella.” Esme watched me finish my breakfast; she grabbed the plate and rinsed it off quickly.


“Yes Bella?”

“Well I was wondering, would it be alright if I started calling you mom?”

I’ve never seen Esme’s eyes glow so bright. She had the brightest smile on her face and gave me a hug and kissed my cheek.
“Of course Bella, I consider you as one of my own children.” The tears began to well up in my eyes. I gave Esme one more hug,

“Thank you Mom, for everything. For loving me and accepting me from the start.”

She stood there stroking my hair for a while until my tears were dried.

“I need to go talk to Alice.”

She nodded and I walked up the stairs grabbing the railing for support to make sure I don’t trip and fall. Of course getting to the last step I tripped but caught myself.

I knocked on her door and heard her say, “Come in.” She had the most depressed look on her face.

“Alice, what’s wrong?”

“Nothing, I just don’t want to hear what you have to say.”

Of course Alice knew about our talk and what decision we had made.

“Well Alice since I’m sure you already know, Edward is going to change me before the wedding so we don’t need to go shopping for the dress until after I’m changed. But we can still go tomorrow for 2 hours at the most just so I can get clothes for this week. Then I’ll need a completely new wardrobe.” I said that part for Alice’s benefit.

She looked up at me and her eyes lit up a little more after hearing this.

“So is that alright then Alice?”

“Well, as long as we still get to go shopping then that’s fine, but I was really excited about finding you a dress.”

“Alice we’re still going to find a dress, just a little while longer until we do.”

“Yeah…I know…so what are you planning on doing today while Edward is out?”

“Umm….I haven’t completely decided. I could take a nap, or just hang around you if your not doing anything?”

“Nope notta thing. You know what we could do?!?!?!”

Uh oh this couldn’t be good. She looked like this would have something to do with money. “What’s that Alice?”

“We can look at wedding things so you can decide on what you want to have, so then we don’t have to delay things too much longer.”

Well I guess this couldn’t be too bad I mean it’s better than sitting up in mine and Edward’s room missing him.

“Why not, let’s just get this over with.” Alice just rolled her eyes and danced her way over to a dresser and pulled out the bottom drawer that was filled to the brim with wedding magazines and books.

My mouth instantly dropped. I always knew Alice would probably have some wedding things but this much. WOW.

“Close your mouth and start picking out things you like. By the way where are we planning on having this wedding?” smirking while she said this.

“Well, Alice I could ask you the same question. Well since I’m going to be changed, we’ll have to fake my death and move so…I was thinking something like Paris or Rome. But I’m sure you already know which one I’ll choose right?”

“Of course I do Bella.”

“I think Rome for the wedding, Paris for the honeymoon. Is that what you saw?” Alice just nodded. I was so excited to be having my wedding in Europe it’s always been a dream of mine to be married there.

“Now what colors do you want for the wedding? Besides white.”

“Well light blue because it’s Edward’s favorite color on me, and topaz because I love his eyes.” She gave me one of her brightest smiles.


The next thing I picked out were the flowers. I picked out a White and Blue bouquet of freesia and roses. The freesia was white and the roses were white with blue tips. Since I didn’t need to pick out a cake, I decided to look for the perfect bridesmaid dresses for Rosalie, Alice, and Esme.

Esme is going to be the maid of honor. All of them in a baby blue dress, Alice and Rosalie’s are silk halter dresses that overlaps on the v-neckline. The mid-section is pulled to the left side with a small silk bow.

Esme’s dress is the same color but has shoulder straps and has a box cut neckline with a beaded mid-section.

I even picked out a few ideas for the guys’ tuxedos. The groomsmen, Jasper and Emmett, will wear white tuxes with baby blue vests and ties. The man of honor, Carlisle, will wear a white tux with a topaz colored vest and tie.

After checking through everything, I looked at the clock to notice that 5 hours had passed by. “Alice, this has been fun, but I’m really exhausted so I think I’m going to go lie down, Thank you for helping me with all of this.”

“Your welcome Bella, and hey since Edward went off hunting today, I’ll let you have him for the rest of the week without shopping, you can just borrow some of my clothes.”

I walked out of her room to my room probably glowing for all I knew. I walked over to the bed and laid down. I laid there for about a half and hour but just couldn’t fall asleep. I got up and walked over to Edward’s massive stereo system and found my favorite CD I’d only received in September. Listening to my lullaby play I curled up on our bed and drifted into the darkness.
