Two weeks had past since my talk with Carlisle and I had to admit my anxiety about my wedding night was getting worse, not better. I thought about talking to my father again and although I’d almost asked him to go for a run with me several times over the last week, well I’d never actually spoken those words. Alice had Bella in her room at the moment going over wedding plans. She’d been stealing her away from me too much lately and although I knew Bella was just down the hall and I could hear her heart beating out a steady rhythm, the physical separation was not helping. It gave me too much time to think. I’d considered joining them, but I knew I’d have to deal with the wrath of Alice.

I heard the front door open and Emmett and Jasper’s voices carried up to me. They were in a good mood from the sound of it. A thought crossed my mind but I dismissed it and continued to lie on my bed listening to music.

Esme was in her room going over a new set up blue prints and I could hear her humming happily to herself. Carlisle had just left for the hospital not long ago and would be gone till morning. I listened once again to Alice and Bella. Alice was showing her wedding invitations from the sound of it and then I heard her say, “Come on Bella. There has to be ONE of these you like.”

“They all seem nice.” Bella said.

“Well of course they’re all nice, silly. I picked them. But which one do YOU like?”

“Alice…”

Ugh! This isn’t that difficult. I hear my sister think but when she speaks to Bella she’s a little more patient. “Would you prefer if I just picked one?”

I heard Bella release a loud sigh, “Yes.”

“Now,” I heard my sister say, “Let’s talk about cakes.”

Poor Bella. I knew how much she was hating this and by the sound of it, she was going to be in my sisters clutches for a while.

I heard my brother’s voices again. This time they were mingled with sounds coming from the TV, some baseball game of course. Although I enjoyed sports, I would much rather play them than watch them. As I listened to them, the thought I had earlier came up fresh again. Maybe I should talk to them. No. I told myself. They will just make fun as they always have.

As I continued to lie there, however, the thought kept returning. Finally I pushed myself off my bed and headed for Alice’s room. What did I have to lose anyway? It wasn’t like they hadn’t made fun of me before.

Knocking on the door Alice’s trill little voice told me to come in. Opening the door I saw them both sitting on the bed with at least ten different catalogs laying spread out in front of them. But I barely registered them as my eyes locked on Bella’s.

Her smile as soon as she saw me was radiant. She hopped off the bed and quickly made her way over to me, wrapping her arms around my waist and burring her face in my chest. My arms circled around her and I brushed my lips across her hair and taking a deep breath. Her scent filled me and the familiar burn I welcomed with open arms heated my throat.

She looked up, “Did you come to rescue me?” she asked with pleading in her eyes.

My sister’s thoughts were shouting at me. Don’t you even think about it Edward Cullen. She’s mine today. We have to make decisions. We’re running out of time. Do you hear me. NO! You’ll have her all night.

I bent down and placed a soft kiss on her lips. “Sorry, love.” I brushed her hair behind her ear. “You and Alice look like your going to be a while so I thought I’d see if Jasper and Emmett wanted to go hunt.” There was quite sadness in her eyes, she still hated when I left her. “I didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye.”

“Ok.” She whispered.

I leaned down and brushed my lips against her ear feeling a shiver run through her. “I’m not going far. I’ll be back before you wake tomorrow.” I let my lips trail across her cheek until my lips found hers. I pressed gently, allowing my breath to caress her lips before I pulled away.

“Alice can you see Bella home tonight?”

“Of course.” She said with a smile and hopped off the bed to grab Bella’s arm, pulling her back towards the bed. “Come on Bella, we have a lot to do before I take you home.”

As soon as they’d both made it back onto the bed, my sister gave me a fierce look letting me know my presence was no longer desired so I quickly left the room and headed down stairs to my brothers.
