That night I went to his house. I knocked on the door to his house and he opened it right away. I half smiled and walked in. It made me kind of nervous when I realized we were the only two in the house.
"Come with me there's something I want to show you", he took my arm and walked me to his room.
We walked to his room. When I walked in, there were candles and rose petals everywhere. Why the hell was he trying to be romantic?!
He turned towards me and gave me that beautiful smile of his.
"Do you like it?", he grinned pulling me close.
"I love it but what's the occasion?", I was too caught up in this beautiful moment to realize that I should be angry with him.
"Our reunion", he kissed me.
"Come here there's something I have to ask", he took my hand again and led me to the center of the room.
He looked in my eyes and chuckled.
"You look terrified", he smiled.
"I am", I admitted.
"Don't be afraid", he murmured and hugged me.
"I'm sorry. Go ahead", I was afraid of his question but I still had to know.
"Are you sure? I wouldn't want you to faint on me", he smiled again. It took my breath away.
"Really, I'm fine", I lied.
"Alright", he said taking in a deep breath.
"Isabella Marie Swan. I've been technically dead for nearly a hundred years now. The day you came into my world is the day I knew what it felt like to be...alive. I can't live without you, I've tried and you'll never know how much I regret that, how much I hate myself for doing that to the both of us. I'm nothing without you. Everything that I'm not...which is a lot...you are. You complete me. I need you to survive. I love you more than anything. I promise to always love and protect you. Bella, my one true love", he slid to one knee and took my hand, "will you marry me?", he smiled using his other hand to take a box from his pocket.
When he opened the ring box it was the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. It was gold with beautiful diamonds and....wait. He's PROPOSING!? What?! How could I have not seen it? It's so obvious to me now, the rose petals the candles the beautiful speech that I didn't realize before now had brought me to tears. WHAT?! I don't understand. He's cheating on me but is now asking me to MARRY him?! Whoa! Hold up here!
"Umm....Edward?", I began feeling like a total jerk.
"Yes love?", he smiled kindly at me as if giving me permission to reject him.
I took his hands and tried to tell him to stand up.
"We need to talk first", I said slowly as he stood looking shocked and hurt.
I sat down and pulled him beside me.
"I don't understand", I admitted.
"What?", he was confused.
"Why are you proposing to me after you cheat on me?", I asked.
His eyes grew in horror.
"Cheat on you?! Bella I would never do such a thing?! What makes you say that?!", he looked hurt.
I took in a deep breath. "Alice told me about her vision", I admitted.
"Vision? What vision? This vision saw me cheat on you?", he was confused.
His confusion confused me.
"Yes. She saw you hug and kiss Tanya", I told him, my eyes filling with unshed tears.
"Tanya?", he asked disgusted and then his face changed to realization. "Oh I see".
"What?", I asked.
He half smiled. "Bella I am so sorry", he ran his finger down my cheek and wiped my eyes.
"Why did you do it? Why couldn't you have just broken up with me if you felt this way?", I asked totally confused.
"Bella I never cheated on you. I'm sorry Alice worried you that way. I'll have to have a word with her later. I was only with Tanya because I was planning on proposing to you and I needed a woman's advice. I wasn't going to ask Alice, she would tell you. I wasn't going to ask Rose, let's be honest she doesn't approve of you, she wouldn't be much help. I couldn't ask Esme, she would tell Carlisle. Besides I wanted to do this right and without my family's help. I couldn't do it completely alone so I enlisted in Tanya's help. I'm sorry I had no idea it would hurt you this way", he looked so sincere. I believed him immediately.
I was still stunned, frozen.
"You're serious?", it sounded so informal compared to the sophisticated way he talked but I had to get my point across.
"I would never, ever do anything to hurt you. Especially cheat on you. It terrifies me to even imagine the hurt and pain you were suffering when you believed this. It's complete agony", his eyes looked full of pain.
"I just-I didn't understand it but Alice wouldn't tell me that if she didn't believe it", I said.
"You're right. I can't believe my family and most importantly you would believe such a thing", he said.
I smiled. "I believe you now. I'm sorry I doubted your faithfulness", I apologized genuinely.
"It isn't your fault love", he smiled. "Do you forgive me?"
I smiled "Of course I do"
He kissed me.
"Now the big question is...will you marry me?", he smiled.
What do I do?
