Bella's Point of View:

After a few minutes of intense kissing we slowly broke apart. I knew that if we could be crying that our faces and shirts would be completely soaked in tears of pure joy and happiness. "How?" He gratefully asked me unable to get any complete sentences out. It was rather cute.

"Love. It was our love that brought me back. You loved me enough and I loved you enough to the point where I was brought back from the dead." I explained to him. There was a look of shock on his face. Not, that I blame him I am still surprised when I remind myself of the reason why I was brought back and given the opportunity to spend eternity with my Edward.

"Bella you're here. Words can't even describe how I feel right now. You're here and that's all I care about. I love you Isabella Cullen." Edward told me using my proper last name. One I have not been able to use in seventy five years. However, his ring for me is still on my ring finger, exactly where it should be. I want nothing more than to hear him say "I love you," over and over again.

"I love you. Edward I've dreamed of this moment for seventy years. Here you are standing in front of me. I love you Edward Cullen." I told him and the words were completely true. As soon as I finished telling him he kissed me.

We kissed more passionately, with more desire and if possible more love and feeling than ever before. We continued to kiss and kiss until Alice said excitedly and attempting to be quiet "Yay!" and she clapped her hands together. We both gave her a look for interrupting our perfect moment and she completely shut up. It was pretty funny. We began to laugh. His laugh sounded even more amazing now that I can hear it perfectly with my vampire hearing ability.

"Mrs. Cullen I believe we have a dance to finish. Would you do me the honor of finishing said dance?" Edward asked in his early twentieth century dialogue.

Deciding to play along with his silly little game I said "Why, Mr. Cullen I believe we do need to finish a dance." Then almost as if Edward and I had told her to she pressed play and Clair de Lune began to play as we began to dance around the living room together. Luckily I have more balance and am in no danger of dying unlike the last time we danced together.

Once the music stopped we continued to dance until a very confused Emmett asked "Wait, I'm confused didn't Bella die seventy years ago?" then Edward and I stopped dancing and Rosalie very loudly smacked Emmett. Emmett looked as if he was going to say something back but

Esme was the first one to come up and hug me. Almost instantly I was whisked out of Edward's arms. However, Edward's grip did firmly remain on my hand. Carlisle asked how it was I was here. I explained it a few times to them.

Finally after a few minutes I was back in Edward's loving arms. He refused to let me go (not that it bothered me). The one second he loosened his grip a fraction of an inch I pulled him closer to me. Back and forth we kept whispering "I love you," and kissing, lots of kissing. I was so happy in this brief moment of time that it almost made spending the last seventy years alone worth it, I said almost.

For the first time in my existence there was no threat to my life and everything was beyond perfect.
