Charlie stared at the floor, his brown eyes calculating. We stood there for a few minutes, Edward and I not knowing what to say or do. I squeezed Edward’s hand until my knuckles went white. I wanted Charlie’s approval of our marriage so badly, I wanted him to walk me down the aisle. And I didn’t want him to hate me, either.
“Hmmm…” Charlie muttered, the first sound he made since we entered the room. I was starting to fidget under the tension in the room. Either Charlie made it tense on purpose to get Edward back for telling him that he wanted to marry his daughter, or if he was really thinking hard, I didn’t know. And that made the anxiety build up even more. What if he didn’t accept Edward as a future husband for me? What would happen then? Would I still get married, or would I let Charlie have his way? I wasn’t sure of the answer to that question, and that made me worry.
Edward didn’t move a muscle in the entire time we were standing there. If he liked the train of Charlie’s thoughts, he didn’t show it. I could hear the clock in the room tick, I could have heard a pin drop on the floor it was so quiet.
But then Charlie suddenly snapped his head up and started to stare at Edward and I. A smile crept onto my face when I saw the look on Charlie’s face. He wasn’t frowning, but he wasn’t smiling either. He was just…looking. Then Edward began to smile. And I knew exactly why. I knew what the words out of Charlie’s mouth would be before he even said them.
“I can’t force you not to marry Edward, Bella,” he said. I nodded eagerly. “I can see that you love him and that he loves you, too.” I nodded even quicker. “I give you my permission for you two to get married.” I was about to burst with happiness. “But,” Charlie said quickly. “Only under one condition.” My heart sank. Charlie looked from Edward to me very slowly. “You can get married only when you are out of college.”
“WHAT?” I yelled. How can he mean that? Didn’t he know that I would be twenty four or more by the time I was out of college? I couldn’t do that!
Charlie flinched at my tone of voice. Edward also flinched, but probably because I yelled so close to his ear.
“I can’t wait that long!” I said, quieter that time.
“And why not?” Charlie asked frustrated.
“Because I will be too old!” I exclaimed. “Edward doesn’t age! I don’t want a five year different between us!” Charlie seemed to absorb my words.
“Fine then,” he said after a few moments. “You can get married in two years.” I started to open my mouth to protest, but Charlie cut me off. “I know that as soon as you are married, you will leave.” That stunned me. What did he mean? My heart started to race. Does he know about my plans for the future? My plans of becoming a vampire? I opened my mouth to speak, but no words came out. Edward stiffened, too. He hadn’t said a word, yet. I figured it was because it was an argument between Charlie and me. Even though it did concern him, Charlie was my father.
“W-what?” I managed to squeak out. Charlie just kept on staring at me.
“I’m not stupid, Bella,” he said coldly. “I want to spend as much time with you as I can,” he said a little softer. I nodded slowly, in a daze.
“But what do you mean-” I started.
“I know that you won’t live with out Edward, Bella,” he said in a monotone. “It’s obvious after what happened when…he left.” I flinched at the thought of what I did when Edward left. I saw Edward stiffen beside me.
“Mr. Swan, I-” Edward gasped out. Charlie held up a hand.
“I know that you feel guilty for that, but let me finish,” Charlie said. Edward nodded. Charlie adverted his eyes to the floor again. “And seeing how you react when you think of getting older, I know that you won’t tolerate becoming too much older then Edward.” I was paralyzed in my place. I couldn’t believe Charlie figured it out so quickly. “I was confused to why you objected to getting married when you were older, since I thought it wouldn’t make a difference to give or take a year or two. But then you said that you wouldn’t want to become that much older then Edward. I was wondering how not wanting to get older and marriage fit together, and then it came to me.” I stiffened. I gave myself away. “You plan on getting turned into a vampire after you are married to Edward.” Charlie looked up from the floor and into my eyes. I couldn’t tell from the look I was getting whether Charlie was furious or not. I just squeezed Edward’s hand and kept on listening to Charlie.
