Part Two Of The Date
I looked over to her as we were driving down the street, “Close your eyes Bella.”
She looked at me, and her eyes flew wide open, “Close my eyes? W-why?”
I chuckled. She was so cute when she did that; it made me laugh every time, “Just close them; I want to surprise you,” I smiled. I realized that the only time I had ever really smiled was when I was with Bella, and I didn’t know why.
She smiled, and then groaned, “I don’t like surprises Edward! I thought I told you that already,” she whined, but sighed, “But since you promised you weren’t spending any more money on me, I’ll close my eyes.”
She closed her eyes, leaning he head back against the seat. She looked like an angel, and it took all the power in me not to reach over and touch her beautiful face.
I was still smiling, “Thank you. You won’t regret this; I promise.”
The rain had finally stopped, and I thought it would be the perfect time to go to ‘our’ place; the same place we went the night we went bowling. I knew how much she loved it, and I knew she enjoyed it as much as I did. It was my way of trying to make the night special for her; she deserved every bit of my spoiling.
We were only driving for a few minutes, “Edward!” Bella whined, “Where are we going? How much longer am I going to have to sit like this?”
I laughed at her impatience, “Just a few more minutes. And I’m not telling; it’s a surprise, remember?”
She didn’t reply.
I turned onto the next street, parking the car on the side of the road. I smiled to myself as I turned the car off; we were at the fountains again.
The rain had already stopped and Edward had just made me close my eyes for another surprise. I tried to get him to tell me where he was taking me, but he wouldn’t say a word about it. I always hated surprises, but he wouldn’t listen to me.
I thought I felt him put the car in park, but I wasn’t sure; my eyes were still closed.
I heard the car turn off and sighed, “Are we there?”
I frowned, hoping he hadn’t just left me sitting there, “Edward? Are you still here?”
I tried to feel for him in his seat; he wasn’t there. I started to panic when my door opened.
That was when I heard his sweet voice, “I’m right here, Love.”
I smiled, thinking about what he had said, but let go of the thought figuring it was nothing, “I didn’t even here you get out of the car. Can I open my eyes now?” I hated not being able to see what was going on around me.
He chuckled, “Not yet.”
The next thing I knew, I felt his arms pulling me out of the car. He picked me up and started carrying me like the night we went bowling.
I squealed as he picked me up, “Edward! I can walk you know.”
I blushed, hiding my face in the crook of his neck as I wrapped my arms around him. I knew he wouldn’t drop me; and although I believed he would never let me fall, it was just another excuse to be a little closer to him.
I could feel his body shaking with laughter, “Is that so? I seem to remember catching you as you were falling at least three times since we met. And that was with your eyes open; think of all the damage you could do with your eyes closed.”
I laughed, “Yeah, yeah very funny. Just get walking then.”
And so, we walked; well, he walked. I just sat there and enjoyed the ride with my arms wrapped tightly around his neck.
Once again, I had no idea where he was talking me. But I didn’t care; I only cared that I was with him, enjoying our time together.
I smiled. Just thinking about spending my time with him made me happy. I had no idea I could ever be that happy before; and yet, there I was in his arms of the man of my dreams.
We walked, not saying a word all the way to our destination. I didn’t dare break the silence; it was a comfortable silence again, and we were both enjoying it.
He stopped walking, setting my feet back on the ground.
He grabbed my hand, intertwining out fingers together again, “Open your eyes, Love.”
I smiled at his words and opened my eyes. What I saw only made my smile grow wider, “Mmm, the fountains again”
The same fountains from the night we went bowling were in front of me. They were just as gorgeous now as they were the last time; and I just stood there looking at the lights, remembering the first night he brought me here..
He placed a hand over mine, still grinning crookedly, “Would you like to dance?”
I looked at him, confused, “There’s no music.”
How did he expect to dance with no music? And I don’t even know how to dance; I happen to be a horrible dancer.
He laughed, “It doesn’t matter; we don’t need music.”
He grabbed my hand, placing his other on my waist and started moving his feet.
“I don’t know how to dance,” I found my self blurting it out before I could even think about it.
He looked at me and smiled, “Don’t worry; It’s all in the leading.”
And he started humming, moving his feet to the rhythm. I may not have known how to dance, but I was doing a pretty good job not showing it; maybe it really was in the leading.
I rested my head on his chest, just enjoying the moment. Before I knew it, we were dancing across the street, Edward humming a tune I didn’t recognize.
“Edward, what is that you’re humming?” I asked, curiously.
He stopped moving his feet and looked down at me, “Oh, it’s nothing; just something I came up with.”
I looked back at him, “You came up with that?”
“Mhm,” he grinned.
I smiled, “It’s beautiful.”
He laughed, and started humming the same tune again.
And with that, we danced.
I smiled at the memory, thinking of everything that happened that night.
He walked up behind me, wrapping his arm around my waist. He rested his chin on the top of my head.
I sighed, “Thank you for bringing me here again; this is so beautiful.”
I could tell he was smiling, “Just like you.”
I blushed, still looking at the fountains. It really was beautiful, and being there with Edward made it a million times better.
Edward sighed, “Thank you for coming out with me tonight.”
I smiled and looked up at him, “Thank you for inviting me to come out with you tonight. I had an amazing time.”
He chuckled, “Oh, it’s not over yet, Love,” he turned me around, putting his hand under my chin and lifting my head up.
Before I knew it, his lips were on mine. I wrapped my arms around his neck, making sure I wasn’t going to fall over. He grabbed me by the waist and deepened the kiss.
I began smiling, causing him to do the same. It was one of the most amazing kisses of my life, and I was sharing it with the most amazing man I’d ever met. It was the perfect night.
He let go and I looked straight into my eyes. My breath hitched and I could tell I’d stopped breathing. I was still looking into his bright green eyes; he was dazzling me.
Edward smiled crookedly, “Breathe Bella.”
I blushed, hiding my face in his chest; I could tell he was trying hard not to laugh.
He stepped away from me, holding his hand out for me to grab and looked straight into my eyes, “Would you like to dance with me?”
I sighed in defeat; he was dazzling me again, “Of course,” I grabbed his hand, resting the other on his shoulder, “I’ll always dance with you, Edward”
He pulled me into him, resting a hand around my waist as I rested my head on his chest. I smiled; he always smells so good to me. He was humming the same song from last time.
We moved to the rhythm, dancing along the street; it was late, and no cars ever drove down that road anyways. As we danced, I thought about the night and everything Edward did for me. He knew exactly how to make me feel special, and he was absolutely amazing. I have no idea how long we stayed like that; just dancing in the street to his humming.
I was lost in thoughts of the night when I heard Edward talking, “Bella, are you even listening to me?”
I snapped out of it, “Huh? Oh, sorry; I was just thinking. What did you say?”
He chuckled, grinning crookedly at me, “I said, are you ready for the rest of your surprise?”
I looked up at him, “There’s more?”
He laughed again, walking back to the Volvo and grabbing a blanket, “Yes; there’s more. Walk with me.”
He grabbed my hand, walking down the street; I knew exactly where we were going. We were going to the park again. When we got there, he spread the blanket out on the ground and lied down. The grass was usually dry enough if you put a blanket down first.
I lied down next to him, resting my head on his chest so I could see the stars. The night sky was clear, and you could see the stars perfectly.
I smiled, remembering the questions we had started asking each other earlier, “I have another question for you.”
“Is that so?” he asked, “Well, ask away; I’m yours all night.”
I laughed, “Okay. What made you ask me out?”
He chuckled, “Silly Bella, do you really have to ask that?” I nodded my head.
He sighed, “Well, if you must know. I asked you out because you aren’t like every other woman I’ve met. You’re different; you’re special. After the day we met at the grocery store, I couldn’t stop thinking about you. And after I found out you were the girl we were going bowling with, I jumped at the chance to spend more time with you. I wanted to get to know you better. You’re amazing Bella; don’t you ever let anyone tell you otherwise.”
I hadn’t expected that answer, but it was all I needed.
I brought my face up to his, giving him a small kiss on the cheek, “Thank you Edward. For everything you’ve done for me tonight. I don’t deserve someone as amazing as you, but I’m not in the mood to complain about it right now,” I smiled.
He grinned, “You deserve way more than someone like me.”
I laughed; I didn't think that was true, “Okay. It’s your turn,” and moved my head back to his chest again.
“Hmm. Tell me about your parents; what are they like?” he asked.
I sighed, “Well, my mom looks exactly like me, but prettier. She’s different than other moms, but I love her more than anything. She likes adventure, and she’s one of the bravest people I’ve ever met; she likes to take chances,” I smiled at the thought of my mother, “She married Phil when I was younger and moved to Jacksonville. As I’ve told you, I moved in with my dad, Charlie. He’s the Chief of Police in Forks, and he was always trying to protect me from everything. Of course, that was impossible to do with my horribly bad luck; I’ve always been like a magnet for trouble. I love both of my parents more than anything, and even having Phil as my step dad hasn’t been bad.”
I had to stop there; thinking about my parent made me feel a little sad. I hadn’t seen my parents in months, and I missed them more than I thought.
“They sound like great people. But I doubt you’re mother is prettier than you are; that couldn’t be possible,” he winked at me, “I’m sure they love you as well, and they probably miss you a lot.”
We stopped asking questions for now, and Edward started humming again.
I closed my eyes, just enjoying his humming; and before I knew it, I had fallen asleep.
We were lying on the ground, looking at the stars together. The night had been perfect, and I was happy that she had agreed to go out with me. She had told me about her parents; they sounded like great people who loved her a lot, and I could tell she missed them. I promised myself to find a way for her to visit her parents sometime soon.
At that point, her head was resting on my chest as I hummed her lullaby. I had written it for her, as she was my inspiration to start playing my piano again.
Tonight I realized I cared about Bella more than I had for anyone else, and I would do anything for her. I was humming her song and looking up at the stars as I thought about the night.
She started talking, but she only said one word, “Edward..”
I thought she was talking to me, so I tried to reply, “Yes Bella?”
“Edward..” was her only reply.
I looked down at her to find a sleeping Bella in my arms. I smiled, realizing she was dreaming about me.
Bella was a sleep talker.
I woke up to Edward shaking me lightly, “I’m sorry, Love. You were talking in your sleep.”
I blushed, hiding my face in his chest again, “Oh no! What was I saying?”
He chuckled, looking down at me, “You were saying my name.”
My head snapped up to him, “Oh. I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be sorry Bella; there’s nothing to be sorry about,” he smiled, “I think it’s time to head home; it’s past midnight by now.”
I sighed, “Alright.”
We got up, picking the blanket up and heading back to the car. I didn’t want the night to end, like I didn’t want any night that involves Edward to end, but I knew it had to. I was extremely tired, obviously, and it was time to head home.
He opened my door for me as we got in, and we drove down the street. When we arrived at my apartment complex he opened my door for me again, helping me out of the Volvo.
He gave me a small kiss, “I’ll call you tomorrow?”
I nodded, “I’ll be waiting. Good night Edward.”
He grinned my favorite grin, “Good night, and sweet dreams.”
I smiled, “My dreams will only be filled of you, I’m sure.”
He chuckled, “And mine of you. Now go to sleep, Love.”
I let go of him, walking though the door and headed to my apartment. I had just enjoyed one of the best nights of my life, and there was no way I was going to forget this.
Alice and Rose were already asleep when I opened the door, but I expected they’d force everything they wanted to know out of me in the morning.
For now, I was going to dream about the bronze haired, green eyed God in my life.
