Chapter 7: I Hope You Dance


“Are you ready for our Midnight stroll?” He asked as we started walking.

I nodded, “Definitely.”

Edward smiled at me and grabbed my hand, “Come on; I want to show you something.”

I looked at him and smiled, “Alright, lead the way.”

We walked down the street silently. Neither of us said anything, but it was nice; it was silent, but it was a comfortable silence.

We were walking for about ten minutes before he stopped.

He turned so he was in front of me, “I want you to close your eyes.”

I looked at him, confused. I didn’t get why he wanted me to close my eyes.

“Bella, trust me,” was all he said.

I blushed, looking down at the ground, “I trust you Edward.”

He laughed, “Then close your eyes. You won’t regret this; I promise”

I sighed in defeat and closed my eyes. The next thing I knew, I was being lifted off my feet.

I squealed, “Edward! What are you doing?” I still had my eyes closed.

“I’m carrying you, obviously,” he laughed.

I blushed again, “I got that, but why are you carrying me?”

He started walking again, turning down another street after a few seconds, “I didn’t want you to fall while walking with your eyes closed,” he chuckled.

I sighed, “Fine. I guess there’s no trying to stop you.”

“Nope,” I could tell he was smiling.

At this point, I didn’t care that he was carrying me. I didn’t even care that he was trying to surprise me with something. All I cared about was being with him right now. I wrapped my arms around his neck, almost afraid I was going to fall. I knew he wouldn’t let it happen, but I couldn’t help myself.

As we walked, I could hear footsteps in the distance. Once, I even heard someone stop and ‘aww’ at us. I blushed, hiding my face in the crook of Edward’s neck.

“Where are we going?” I was curious to where he was taking me.

“You’ll see,” he replied.

And so, I just stayed there while he carried me to our destination. We fell into the same comfortable silence as before, just enjoying each other’s company. I still had no idea where we were going..

I was so lost in my thoughts I hadn’t even noticed Edward stopped moving.

“Edward, why’d we stop?” I asked.

He set me back on the ground. I stumbled, almost tripping over my own feet. I still had my eyes closed, and I could hear some kind of water in the background.

“We stopped because this is where I wanted to bring you,” he grabbed my hand again, “You can open your eyes now Bella.”

I opened my eyes and gasped at the sight. Standing in front of me was the most beautiful waterfall I had ever seen. It was the kind that you see in the movies; the ones that spray out of the ground.

As long as I have lived here, I don’t remember ever seeing this. The water was spraying out of the ground, and there were lights everywhere. I just stood there watching the lights change color in the water.

“This is beautiful,” I sighed.

“Yes, it is,” was his only reply.

I turned to look at him, only to find him looking back at me. I blushed and looked down at the ground again.

“Hey,” he put his finger under my chin, pulling my face back up to look at him, “I thought I told you not to hide that blush.”

“Sorry,” I murmured.

“You don’t have to be sorry,” he flashed my favorite grin, “I happen to like it.”

I looked up at him, smiling. I placed a hand on his cheek, “And I happen to like that smile, very much.”

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.

After a good half hour of dancing under the night sky, we made our way over to a bench across the street. As we sat there, I let my mind wander. I thought about the night, and how safe I felt in Edward’s arms. I had never felt like this before; I never thought I could be this happy. I didn’t want this night to ever end.

A cold breeze hit me, and I was brought out of my thoughts.

“Bella, you’re shivering,” Edward sounded worried.

I hadn’t even noticed it was getting cold out, and I hadn’t noticed I was shivering either. I didn’t bring a jacket with me tonight because I hadn’t expected to be out in the cold very long.

He stood up, taking his coat off. He wrapped it around me, “Edward, you’ll freeze.”

He chuckled, “I’ll be fine. Don’t worry about me.”

I sighed, getting up off the bench. Edward wrapped his arm around my shoulder as we walked down the street again. I didn’t know where we were; I hadn’t seen where he brought me due to my eyes being closed.

We stopped at a small park and Edward let go of me. He walked onto the grass and sat down, “Have a seat,” he smiled.

I walked over to him, sitting down beside him. He lied his head down on the ground, sighing, “Look at the sky; it’s so beautiful at night.”

I lied down next to him, looking up at the sky. It was gorgeous; you could see every star in the sky from where we were. The stars where bright and beautiful, and you could see the moon glowing in the distance; I had never seen anything like it before.

I sighed, “Wow, this is amazing. I never knew how beautiful it could be.”

“Haven’t you ever just lied on the ground at night and looked up at the sky?” he asked, obviously curious.

“No. I don’t think I have,” I answered, honestly.

He just laughed, “Well, then you’ve been missing out.”

“I guess I have,” I laughed.

It was then that I looked over to him, meeting those beautiful green eyes I’ve come to love so much. I wanted to know more about him; I wanted to know more about who he was.

I smiled, biting my lip, “Tell me about yourself.”

He sighed, “What would you like to know?”

I sighed, “Everything; I want to know everything about you. I’d like to get to know you a little better.”

He sat up and looked at me, “It’s getting late; how about we walk back to my car. We can talk; get to know each other a little better while I drive you home. How does that sound?”

I got up and turned around to follow him, “Sounds perfect.”

We walked for a few minutes, not saying anything. Edward was the first to break the silence.

He grabbed my hand, intertwining his fingers with mine, “What would you like to know first?”

I bit my lip, “I don’t know; tell me anything. I already know about your dad wanting you to be a doctor, and you wanting to be an editor. And I already know you’re old high school friends with Emmett and Jasper; tell me anything, anything at all,” I was rambling again.

He laughed, “Well, I play piano; that’s how I came up with that tune from earlier. I’ve been playing since I was 7; my mom taught me. I’ve written a few compositions, but I haven’t written anything for a few months now, until recently.”

“What made you start composing again?” I asked, curious about why he suddenly started writing again.

“Meeting you,” he answered, simply.

I stopped walking and gasped, “Me?” I was confused, “But.. why?”

“I don’t know. Ever since that day in the grocery story, I just haven’t stopped thinking about you,” he looked at me, grinning crookedly.

He couldn’t stop thinking about me; was I hearing this right? Not only could I not stop thinking about him, but hecouldn’t stop thinking about me? I couldn’t understand why he’d be thinking about me. All I really knew was that I couldn’t stop thinking about him either. I didn’t know why, but I didn’t question it.

“I couldn’t stop thinking about you either,” I admitted.

We started walking again, making it back to his car at the bowling alley. He opened my door for me, motioning for me to get in.

It was a silent drive for a while; the only sound coming from our breathing and the heater in the car. But it was a comfortable silence, once again.

“Aren’t you going to ask me where I live?” I wondered why he hadn’t asked me yet.

He chuckled, “I suppose it would help. Where is it that you live Bella?”

I looked over to him, “Just drive down to the light, and turn left. Keep driving until the stop sign, and take a right. I live in the apartment complex at the end of the road.”

I sighed. I didn’t want this night to end; it was too perfect.

I felt Edward grab my hand, “Bella,” he sighed.

“Edward,” I laughed, “What is it?”

He smiled, “What would you say to going out next weekend? Just the two of us; we could go out to dinner.”

I bit my lip, “That sounds perfect; give me your cell phone.”

He handed it to me, looking confused. I grabbed it, programming my number into his contact list and handing it back to him.

“Call me; we can work out the details,” I explained.

He flashed my favorite grin, “I will definitely do that.”

And with that, he pulled in to the apartment parking lot. I sighed as he parked, and grabbed the door handle.

“Wait; I’ll get that. Just stay here,” I heard Edward say before he got out of the car.

I sighed as he opened my door, holding his hand out for me, “You didn’t have to do that for me.”

He looked at me, “I know; I wanted to.”

We walked up to the door and stopped, turning so we could look at each other.

He smiled and placed a hand on my cheek.

Before I knew it, our lips met, and I wanted to melt right there. It was a sweet kiss, and it was perfect. My lips turned into a smile on his; his doing the same.

We pulled apart, and I looked into those gorgeous green eyes.

“Until next time,” he was still smiling, “Good night Bella.”

“Good night Edward,” and with one last look, I walked into the apartment building.

It was one of the best nights of my life, and it was one I would never forget. I started to feel dizzy as I walked to the apartment I shared with Alice and Rose.

As I walked through the door to the apartment, I could tell my best friends hadn’t gone to bed yet; all of the lights were still on.

Sure enough, Alice and Rose were sitting on the couch together, no doubt waiting for me to get home. I shut the door and heard Alice squealing from behind me.

I smiled, “Hi Alice.”

“Don’t you ‘Hi Alice’ me. What happened tonight?” she jumped up and down in front of me.

I rolled my eyes, “Nothing happened, Alice.”

Rose stood up from the couch, walking over to join us, “Bella, it’s almost two in the morning. Something must have happened to keep you out so late.”

I sighed, walking back to the couch. I sat down, knowing they weren’t going to stop bugging me about it, “I have a date with Edward Masen.”
