I wanted to know badly what he would tell me later. But, I would wait.
"This place is nice." I offered.
"Yes. It holds quite a few memories." Still distant.
"Here’s your order!"
"Thanks." I didn’t even look up at the waitress but I could feel that she was lingering. I looked at Edward and picked up my fork, spearing some ravioli. "Do you ever wish you could eat regular food?" I asked after the waitress left.
"Sometimes I do." I was becoming aggravated.
I sighed loudly. He smiled apologetically. "I’m sorry. I’m being rather boring aren’t I" He cocked his head to the side, smiling crookedly.

My hands flew to my mouth and I hunched down slightly. I nodded my head swiftly as he revealed and golden ring. The band was an intertwining of white and yellow gold…and the most beautiful stone. It was topaz, a forever reminder of his eyes. Tears escaped my eyes as I said yes quietly. He flew up and wrapped his arms around me, spinning me around and saying my name happily in my ear. "Bella…I love you."
"I love you too…"
