Chapter 10

I woke up in the meadow staring into the worried face of Edward.

“Uh. Sorry,” I said as his face softened.

“I found you in the hallway and carried you here because I had forgotten some stuff.” I didn’t question anything because I was still questioning the letter I had received.

Edward softly released my death grip on the letter and then read it.

“Will you take it?” he asked softly.

“I don’t know,” was my ingenious response. We sat in silence in the cool, blank snow that Edward almost blended into, until he turned my lullaby on. Pretty soon I was cold and wet, and he knew it. Edward grabbed a red blanket and wrapped me up. Soon, I was warm again. I thanked him and listened to more of his compositions.

I thought and thought about my choice and how it would affect me and the Cullens. After a couple more minutes had passed, Edward and I returned to the house, and I called a family meeting to discuss my dilemma.

“Today I received a letter asking if I would accept a record deal. I need you help to decide. Carlisle?”

“This is a wonderful opportunity. Yes.”

“Esme?”

“Yes.”

“Emmett?”

“YEAH!!!”

“Rosalie?”

“Go for it.”

“Alice?”

“Yes, but I get to do you wardrobe.”

“Jasper?”

“Yes.” He said softly.

“Edward?” I asked hesitantly. He didn’t answer for what seemed like forever.

“I know that I should let you and I should say yes, but I can’t. I can’t lose you right after I found you.”

It was at this moment that the entire family realized that they would not see me for a very long time if I accepted the offer.

“Thank you. I will let you know my decision soon.”

I left the dining room and went to tinker around on my guitar when I heard a knock.

“Can I come in?” Edward asked.

“Sure.” I replied.

“I just want you to know that I am okay with you accepting the offer…” he wanted to say more.

“Thank you, but can I ask you one more thing?”

“Of course.”

“Turn me first,” I stated. He stiffened.

“Bella…I…I…can’t do that to you.”

“I want it.”

“Then ask Alice or Carlisle.”

“No.” I said stubbornly. “I want it to be you.”

He walked out of the room and started to play a mindless melody on the piano. I played a harmony to him on my guitar. When we had both finished, it was late so I went to take a shower that calmed my nerves. I got out, changed into my pajamas, and brushed my teeth. I walked into m room and almost had a heart attack when the door closed behind me. Two hands grabbed me and jumped onto the bed. I lay in his arms trying to calm down my nerves as I heard the velvet voice say:

“Do you still want to be changed?”

“Yes,” was my answer.

“What about your parents?”

“They will be fine.” He raised an eyebrow at my response.

“I will do it if you agree to my one condition.”

“What would that be?”

He laughed at my careful wording. “Marry me first.”
