7 Long Day

I lay down on the bed with Edward next to me with his arms wrapped around my waist. He began humming my lullaby and I drifted off into unconsciousness.

I awoke to a soft melodic voice.

“Bella, honey, it’s time to get up we have school today.”

“Five more minutes please….”

“Nope, no more minutes it’s going on seven.”

I jumped out of bed and rushed to the bathroom mumbling, “you could’ve gotten me up earlier….”

“I know darling but since I don’t get to kiss you I wanted the next best thing, to watch you sleep.” Aww…some of the things Edward said some days were so sweet.

I finished my shower and threw my hair into a ponytail and changed into a nice baby blue V-neck halter and a pair of tight jeans I knew Edward wouldn’t be able to resist.

I stepped out of the bathroom to see Edward staring at the floor with two backpacks in his hands near the door.

He realized I was in the room and looked up to see what I was wearing and dropped the bags and his jaw.

I could see the anguish in his eyes. He let out a small groan.

This was going to be a long week, not only for him but for me as well. I know that I couldn’t let him get to close to me because he might dazzle me. If that happened I knew I wouldn’t be able to control myself.

He finally snapped out of his daze and grabbed both of the backpacks and handed one to me.

“Thank you.”

“Umm…uhhh….yeah…your..uhh…welcome?” He was literally stunned.

I took my bag and walked off giggling the entire way down the stairs.

He was back beside me within a few seconds.

“Bella you look absolutely enticing.”

“Well thank you Edward.” I replied in my most seductive voice and a breathed in his face.

I could tell just by his expression that he was stunned again.

I had to get away from him soon because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to control myself.

I ran out to his silver Volvo. He was already there holding the door open for me.

“Thanks” I hopped in and he was in the driver’s seat with the engine started.

We sat silently in the car for the whole five minutes to the school. His free hand intertwined with mine the entire time.

We both got out knowing that this week would be bearable without the other around to tempt. But it still broke my heart that we only got to spend time in between classes, biology, and lunch together.

By the time I got to biology I was sick of not being able to really touch him without it going too far.

We took our normal seats at the back of classroom. Mr. Banner wheeled in the cart with the TV and VCR. Thank god we were going to watch a movie today. I always loved that feeling between Edward and I when the lights went off and the electricity was there.

I knew he could feel it too; just by the way he would look over at me questioningly. I would just smile back.

Every time I did I could see his eyes cloud over. I never knew I would ever be able to dazzle the ‘famous’ Edward Cullen. I giggled to myself while I thought about that.

He looked over at me confused as to why I was giggling.

I shook my head. He shrugged and continued to watch the movie.

I couldn’t take this darkness anymore it was making my eyelids heavier and heavier with each passing minute.

Edward saw me slowly drifting to one side and slide closer allowing me to rest my head on his shoulder.

I looked up at him and gave him a smile before I drifted off.


Edward and I were in our meadow. There were candles everywhere and a stereo set up. He bowed and ask me a question I always thought I would dread hearing.

Bella, may I have the honor of dancing with you?” His eyes met mine and I knew I couldn’t refuse. Even though that thought had never even entered my mind.

I knew it was all in the leading, and if Edward were leading me I would follow him anywhere. While we were twirling around the meadow to my lullaby he kept whispering my name,

Bella…Bella darling I love you.”

I love you too, Edward.” I heard a chuckle and realized that I had just said that out loud. I could feel my cheeks burning up on me and I could hear another chuckle from beside me.

I opened my eyes to see him looking at me lovingly.

The lights were still off and the movie was still on. He must have known that the movie would be ending soon and didn’t want me to get into trouble for falling asleep on him.
”Thank you Edward.”

“Your welcome Bella, and I also love you.” I knew that my blush had increased tenfold.

The lights then flickered on and the bell rang shortly afterwards.

Edward and I were off to lunch with the rest of the family. I knew that I would get to talk to Alice then.

He grabbed the normal tray packed with about everything you could eat at the school.

I sat down and picked my way through the food and ended up only eating half of a chicken sandwich and some carrots along with my juice.

Edward and I along with the rest of the family were talking about the graduation on Saturday.

Alice said that it would be cloudy and might possibly rain.

This was good news to me knowing that family would be there and support me through one of probably many graduation ceremonies.

I looked over at Alice…she looked like she was antsy about talking to me about something. She finally nodded towards the cafeteria door.

“Edward I’m finished eating, I’m going to go talk to Alice about some wedding plans for a little while. Okay”

“Yeah, sure, I’ll catch up with you after lunch is over.”

I walked off and whispered an ‘I love you’ I knew only him and the rest of his family could hear. I looked over my shoulder to see him smiling his famous crooked smile.

He mouthed an 'I love you too.'

Then I brought my attention back to Alice. We walked out of the school and out to the parking lot. We stopped near the forest of trees off to the north of the lot.

“So what’s the deal Alice? You looked like you were ready to explode.”

“Well I came out here to talk to you for obvious reasons that you already mentioned to Edward.”

I was confused then realized I told him I was going to talk with Alice about some more wedding plans.

“That’s what you seriously wanted to talk about?”

“Yeah, but I also wanted to give you some advice.”

“Okay?” I eyed her questioningly.

“Well you know this whole bet thing?..” I nodded my head. “You need to stay strong through this because if you cave he knows that you couldn’t threaten him with anything.”

My eyes widened, I never even thought about that. If I caved i wouldn't be able to defend myself, but...if he caved, I owned him. I am so excited now!

“Ohh…I get it…I’ll own him if he caves first. Right?” spitting out the words in my mind.

“Precisely! I know that it extremely hard for you to resist but I can always help. Just give me a holler.” She gave a giggle.

“So what about the wedding plans?” I asked extremely curious about what else there was to plan.

She looked shocked and disgusted with my question. I didn’t know what she was thinking about. I didn’t forget anything, I don’t think.

“THE WEDDING DRESS!!! OH MY GOSH! I can’t believe you would forget something that important!”

“Alice calm down, gees, I don’t think they heard you in EUROPE!” She rolled my eyes at my response. “We can get it the day after I’m changed alright?”

She shook her head and was definitely pleased that I wasn’t arguing.

Before I turned to head back into the school she asked me a question that caught me kind of off guard.

“Bella, do you want to help Edward lose the bet?" I thought about it carefully and nodded.

"If you want Edward to bust you’ll have to do some teasing…”
