Bella’s POV:

Edward took me into his room and sat me down on his leather couch. He kneeled in front of me and held my hand onto his neck. His face looked pained and full of ancient grief. The expression made my gut twist in fear and I could see no happiness in his face. He was looking into my eyes with his beautiful topaz ones.

Silence filled the air around us, and I wasn’t going to break it. Finally, he sighed and put me into his lap. I cautiously rested my head into his cold hard chest, waiting for him to speak.

“Bella…I know that you really want me to change you, and you don’t understand why I am this hesitant, but I need to know…did you say yes to marry me because I would give in, or because you really want to marry me?” I was shocked, why would he even ask me that question? I looked up and cupped my hands to his face, making him look at me in the eyes.

“Edward Cullen, I know you are smarter than that! I said yes to marry you because I love you more than anything! I am prepared to give my life up for you, and marrying you will only prove that to you, so yes, of course I really wanted to marry you! Who else would I possibly marry?” His face was still grave, and his eyes were now probing. I could tell that he couldn’t believe me. It was my turn to sigh. I let go of him, and stood up, his arm were reluctant to let go, but he let me stand a foot away from him.

“Edward…you don’t understand me, do you? The only reason I want this change is for you! I want to be with you forever, and not old and fragile! I want you to kiss me without holding back! I want to have a real honeymoon with you!” I smiled, thinking that last sentence. Last night, I had dreamed about that, and I noticed that was getting more rated R every night. I looked up at him, and his face finally cleared, and his lips twitched, fighting a smile. He took a deep breath and grabbed my hands.

“I love you, Bella…I just don’t want to condemn you.” I was about to interrupt, but he put a cool finger on my lips. “No, listen, just hear me out. I am very selfish Bella. I have other reasons to not change you, would you like to hear them?” I slowly nodded my head, and we both sat down on the couch. He pulled me onto his lap and began a list.

“I love your warmth, Bella…I love your blush, I love watching you sleep, and watching you eat. I wasn’t lying this morning; I absolutely love catching you every time you fall. Being changed into a beast will deprive you of those things among others…your future, your love for the sun, your parents, your friends, I really, really, don’t want to take all that away from you. I don’t want to hear you screaming in anguish and pain for three whole days. And, I know that you won’t agree with this, but I fear that one day, you will outgrow me. You will find someone else to spend the rest of your eternity with. I wouldn’t be able to survive that, Bella…and that is the long list of reasons.” He concluded, looking into my eyes. I reached up and pushed his slightly dishelved hair back, away from his forehead. He closed his eyes, as if savoring my touch. I ran my thumb across his left eyebrow and thought about the best way to answer without him arguing back.

“Okay, well that solves it.” He opened his eyes and a hint of confusion entered them. He raised his eyebrow, and I kept my thumb on it. “You are only thinking of the cons, Edward, but what about the pros? What about these facts? I will be as strong and graceful as you. You won’t have to risk my life every time you touch me. I can spend forever with you, and not a care in the world. Why would I need a future? Friends? The sun? Sleep? Why would I need all that if I have you? If I have you, I don’t need heaven or my parents. I put everyone in danger already and they will get on with their lives. The pain of the transformation will be nothing like I felt when you left me. Think about it, Edward. Me, you, an empty beach, and glittering in the sun. Don’t you want that?” I asked.

“There is nothing more in the world that I would want more. Me, my wife, and a secluded beach.” He gave me a crooked smile and bent down to brush his lips against mine. My heart started to pound and I clasped my hands together, so that I wouldn’t be tempted. When he finally pulled back, and I caught my breath, he was still smiling.

“Plus, I owe you big time.” He said, grinning now.

“For what?” I was confused, he usually spoke in gentle English cadences, not American slang.

“Well, Alice is about to come in here, and you’ll find out why.” He said, and sure enough, the door slammed open and a pixie stood in front of it, jumping up and down and grinning.

“Bella! Come on! It’s girl time!” I groaned at the Alice’s favorite phrase, meaning I would be embarrassed, spoiled, or dressed up. I hated all three.

*********************************** Three hours later: Rosalie, Esme, Alice, and I were sitting on Alice’s bedroom floor, with tons of papers, and a pink laptop in front of us. All the other men were out hunting, and doing…ahem…’manly’ things, as Emmett so bluntly put it. We had just came home from a bridal store where we bought my dress, shoes, veil, the bridesmaid dresses, and other wedding stuff. I was getting tired, so we came back here and now we were on the computer, and Alice was typing a list of random things.

1.Where: Edward’s meadow

2. When: In exactly a week

3. Why: because they love each other! (I snickered at that, Alice was so weird!)

4. Who: Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle, Esme, Edward, Bella, Charlie, and Renee (I kind of freaked out about Renee, she didn’t know yet and i would have to tell her tommorow)

5. What: the best day of Edward and Bella’s…eternities.

6. Clothing: Dress: White, blue sash, halter-top. White, netted veil. White stiletto heels. (I glared at Alice) Bridesmaids: Electric blue halter-tops. All men’s tuxes, at the dry cleaner’s.

7. Bouquet: Freesia and Jasmine flowers. (I knew Edward would love that)

8. Invations: sent. (we only had to send 5, but they were so cute, they had sunflowers!)

9. Reception: 2 tables, chairs, wedding cake, salad, plates and forks. (only 3 people would be eating anyway)

10. Cake: ordered, small enough for three. (It was my favorite: chocolate and more chocolate, with a little dash of chocolate)

“Okay, since you wanted a small wedding, I think that wraps that up.” Alice said, pressing print.

We had been sitting for an hour now, and my butt really hurt. We all stood up, and we suddenly heard a huge crash coming from downstairs.

Rosalie, Alice and Esme covered their ears (they had supersonic hearing, so this was extra loud for them) and ran downstairs. I ran after them, but of course I didn’t get downstairs until 2 minutes and 3 trips later. When I walked into the living room, rubbing my hurt elbow; my jaw fell and I saw something I would never forget.
