"Bella, look at yourself in the mirror." Alice said as she attached the veil to my head. Today's Edward's and mine wedding. Alice came to get me at one thirty this afternoon and has been getting me ready non-stop and its four thirty now.

I looked in the mirror and was surprised. There was no way the woman in the mirror is plain old Isabella Swan. I mean this woman is beautiful. I'm not half as beautiful as her. I was marveled by her beauty. "Bella you're beautiful! Are you ready to go meet Edward? " Alice asked me.

I took a deep breath to calm the nervousness in my stomach before answering "Yes."

Charlie and Renee met us at the bottom of the stairs. I tried to focus but, I really just wanted to see Edward. Both of them exclaimed how beautiful I looked. For my something old and something blue they gave my Grandma Swan's silver hair combs and replaced the originally paste stones with blue sapphires. Renee ran off to go sit with Phil. I had a feeling that was it. No more seeing Renee. I told myself that's not true you'll see her at the reception. After Alice reached her spot Rosalie (the second best musician in the family) began to play the music for me to walk down with Charlie.

"Bells we're up to bat." Charlie whispered to me.

"Don't let me fall." I whispered back as we began walking.

Suddenly it was Charlie's arm on mine that kept me from sprinting down the aisle to Edward. We proceeded through the ceremony to our first kiss as a married couple. Everyone applauded and we made our way over to the dancing area. As we went over there I nearly squealed into his ear "We're married."

"Finally!" He whispered back to me and kissed me lightly.

The lead singer of the band announced into his microphone "Ladies and gentlemen. It's my pleasure to announce for the first time Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cullen!"

The music (Clair de Lune) began to play and we began dance. I barely noticed the twinkly lights around us I was so focused on Edward's face. I had a nagging thought in my mind to say I love you. For it may be the last thing I say to him. I have no idea why and decided to say it anyways.

"I love you." I told him and then I collapsed in his arms. Edward caught me. I tried to get up and could not get anyone of my muscles to respond. Something has to be shutting down my body, but what? Oh my god! The tumor! It's causing this.

"CARLISLE!" Edward screamed at Carlisle as he laid me down carefully. "Oh god! Bella can you hear me? I love you." Edward spoke urgently and worriedly. I was aware of the fact he was holding my hand. That comforted me slightly.

"Edward it's the tumor. It's shutting down her body. Her muscles went first; her vocals will go next I think. Somebody call 911! If you need to say anything Bella says it now." Carlisle informed us as he worked trying to save my life or at least enough to have Edward turn me later.

"Edward... I love you... If I... *cough* die... I need *cough*... you to try... *cough* to... live... *cough*... for... *cough* *cough* me. I... love... you." I choked out. Edward's grip became less and less. My vision was fading too. All of my senses seem to be fading and fading fast.

"I love you more than anything Bella Cullen. You're going to be fine. I won't go to Italy, I promise you that." He kissed me again and began to dry sob semi-hysterically.

I quickly started to lose concisions. This is it. I'm going to die. No! I don't want to die! It's not fair Edward and I are perfectly happy and something comes along to separate us and here I am about to die.

"She's crashing!" A paramedic exclaimed. What? No!

"Bella stay with me!" Edward yelled in desperateness and he slightly tightened his grip. I began to suddenly fade very quickly.

I'm so sorry Edward. I tried to fight for you. Our love will always be there, don't forget that. I love you. After my final thought I slipped into a permanent unconscious state.

I, Bella Cullen was dead.
