Edward's Point of View
I had just made love to Bella. We lay on her bed cuddled up when I suddenly started to hear Charlie’s thoughts.
I really didn't want to move, but we had to. I didn't want to be busted by Charlie- though for some strange reason the thought made me laugh.
I sighed internally-I didn’t want to leave this spot. "Bella, Charlie will be home in 5 minutes. We need to move." I informed her. I could tell by her eyes that she didn't want to move either, but she made an effort and sat up. That allowed me to get dressed. Once I was finished, I walked quickly over to her. I whispered that I had to get home, so I could change for the party. I didn’t need to look at her face to know that she grimaced at the idea of her birthday party.
I pressed my lips to hers and jumped out of her bedroom window. I waited a few minutes, leaning against the side of the house, until I heard her grab my note off the dress that I had gotten her. Once I was sure she read it I ran home.
On the way back to the house, I made my mind up. Tonight was the night I was going to ask Bella swan to marry me. I smiled at the thought. It was an idea that I had been toying with for a while-but now I finally knew what I would do.
I had reached the well lit and now decorated house, and Alice was outside jumping up and down on the front porch. I rolled my eyes- I should have known she would see what I was planning on doing. I walked up the steps and had to tell her to calm down- my head was hurting. Apparently, everybody knew what I was going to ask Bella-thanks to Alice’s large mouth.
Everyone was happy, except one person- Rosalie.
I ran upstairs to get changed, not wanting to deal with Rose right now. Plus, I wanted to get back to Bella as soon as possible. As I was buttoning my shirt I heard a soft knock on my bedroom door. Alice. "Come in, Alice" I sighed.
Alice was still excited-I had a feeling that wasn’t going to change any time soon. "Edward, are you really going to ask Bella to marry you?" I nodded my head yes. She noticed how I really didn’t want to talk about it-I surprised myself by being nervous. The last thing I needed was her obsessing over this. "Okay,” she looked at me once more-still curious. It was as if she was waiting for something, but she didn’t think it. “I’ll go and set up then.” she turned and was about to exit my room before she turned her head and quickly added, “Good luck." and with that she was gone.
I quickly put my suit jacket on, got my mothers ring which hadn’t been removed from my bedside cabinet since we moved here, and ran down the stairs to my car. I toyed with the ring as I drove my way to Bella’s house. It then occurred to me on what Alice was waiting for- I didn't ask her if she had seen Bella’s answer.
Bella's Point of View
As we pulled up to the front of the Cullen’s house, I suddenly became nervous. The front porch was covered in red rose petals and the flickering candle light. It was beautiful-but also too much. All of a sudden, Edward opened the car door and asked "shall we?” He held out his hand for me. I took it and he led me up to the house.
We headed towards the lounge; to my surprise, everyone was there. I even spotted Emmett and Rosalie, whom I thought were vacationing in Europe.
Everyone come up to me and hugged me, wishing me a happy birthday-all except for Rosalie. No surprise there. I suddenly felt a flash of anger run through me-what the hell was her problem? She had an expression of pure hatred on her face. I knew that she hated me- but I just didn't know why.
Edward seemed to shoot her a warning glance when he thought I wasn’t looking. Then he went over to his piano and played my lullaby. After he concluded, he gave me a single red rose.
Alice broke up the romantic moment by shouting, "Present time now!" I groaned internally-I had already told everyone that I didn't want any gifts; everyone had chosen to ignore me, as usual.
Alice handed me a small rectangular box- it felt empty. "This one is from Jasper, Emmett and Rosalie" she told me. I smiled, opening the box. It had a piece of paper with numbers. I felt myself frown slightly- now I was confused.
Everyone laughed at my expression before Edward whispered in my ear, "It's a new stereo, for your truck. Emmett put it in when you were in the shower." He explained. Now I really blushed. I just hoped he wasn't around when I got out of the shower.
Emmett started to really laugh and said, "I love it when you blush like that, Bella." Rosalie just stared at him with an unimpressed look on her face.
Alice picked up yet another box, this one flat, and handed it to me. "This one is from Carlisle and Esme." With that, I started to open the lovely silver paper, not paying much attention when suddenly I sliced my finger on the paper.
“Damn it." I pulled my finger up, just to see the crimson blood oozing out of the tiny slice on my finger.
After that everything seemed to go in slow motion.
Edward shouted "NO!" He pushed me out of the way of something. After I flew through the air I found myself landing on the table. It took the wind out of me and the table broke in half.
I looked up just in time to see Edward throw Jasper across the room. Jasper went into the piano- the piano was destroyed. My mind was moving faster with adrenaline so that I could put the pieces together-my blood made Jasper want to kill me.
Carlisle ran over to me, while the others removed Jasper from the house. I could hear him screaming and I knew why- my blood. I just hoped they would forgive me for this.
Alice and Edward came back rather quickly, "Alice, go get my bag, please." Carlisle ordered Alice before turning to me, "Bella, I’m so sorry." What did he have to be sorry for? It was me who was careless. All of a sudden, I got the smell of rust and salt. That stench only came from blood. I hesitantly looked down to investigate and then fainted from what I saw.
I gained conciseness, and was really confused why I was laying on the couch. Then it hit me. I fainted, and they must have moved me here. I sat up and looked around.
Somebody had cleaned all of the blood up. The place looked liked nothing had happened. As I looked around for Edward I could hear him sobbing. He was saying something to Carlisle in between sobs. I strained to listen and catch all of it. "What have I done?” It was a while before Carlisle answered him,
"Edward, son, you were just trying to protect her. She will understand. Stop beating yourself up over this, Edward.” I heard Edward growl before adding
"I could have killed her, Carlisle.” Carlisle let out a sigh,
"But you didn't, Edward. Even with all that blood, you didn’t." They stopped talking, like they knew I was awake. Which, knowing them, they probably did.
As Edward come round the corner, probably recollecting himself quickly as he did so, I looked at his face. It was filled with guilt. It broke my heart to see Edward like this; he was in so much pain. It was my fault. Edward came over to me slowly and captured my face with his hand gently.
"Bella, I am sorry." His voice was now even, truth and sincerity in every word. I had to make him see that it was not his fault.
I held my breath and calmed down before talking, "Stop that, Edward. You have nothing to be sorry for. It was my fault- I should have been more careful!” Somehow I expected him to get angry.
He had his usual expression on when he was angry and he was getting angrier by the second. "BELLA, don't you dare even say that. If you were at mike Newton’s house and cut yourself, he would get you a bandage. He would NOT TRY TO KILL YOU!"
Now I was livid, all I could see was red- "WHAT THE HECK HAS THIS GOT TO DO WITH MIKE NEWTON? YOU ARE MY BOYFRIEND, NOT HIM!" I had to calm down, quickly "Edward Anthony Cullen, I love you and nobody else. My heart is yours.”
Carlisle interrupted us then, "Bella, you need to rest. I or Edward will drive you home." He looked and Edward.
Edward looked back at me, "I’ll take her home Carlisle, unless you don’t want me to. Bella?" I just nodded my head to let him know I wanted him to. Edward looked a little bit shocked, but led me out of the house and to his Volvo.
We drove back to my house in silence, until we arrived. For some reason, I was suddenly nervous. "Edward, will you spend tonight with me, please?" the look in his eyes worried me.
He just stared at me, "I need to go home first. I will be back here later, when Charlie is asleep." His voice was almost flat. With that he walked me to my front door and gave me a quick kiss, though it was very reserved, before heading back to his car and driving off.
I went inside and told Charlie I was tired and that was going to bed. He asked if I had a good night, and I nodded in response. "Goodnight, Dad." I ran up into my room and waited for Edward to return.
