“Bella, we will have a pack meeting tonight so everyone is aware and knows not to attack.”

“Thank you, Sam. I just want to make sure that everyone is safe and I’m not the cause for a sentient being war. Please make sure that anyone who has knowledge of the wolves stays away from Aro. I’m sure he will be recognizable. There’s one last thing.”

“My orders will be crystal clear. What else is going on?”

“I know Emily has probably mentioned that we are having the wedding at the house here. The only other vampires that will be at the wedding, besides the Cullens, will be the Denali’s and they live the same lifestyle that the Cullens do. They consider themselves cousins to each other. What we haven’t told you is that we are moving back. I want to be able to spend as much time with Charlie and my friends as possible before my six months is up. I’ll be making trips to Florida to visit my mother, as well.”

“I can’t believe he has the audacity to give you six months.”

“Sam, I’m lucky to get six months. He could have just decided to kill me when he found out.”

“Bella, we will do what we can to protect you while you are still human. And maybe even your vampire family, too,” he said as he whimsically joked. He was just trying to cut the tension.

“Thank you.”

Since our debriefing was done, we retreated back into the house to finish dinner. As soon as I walked back into the kitchen, Brandon held out his hands to me; he knew exactly who I was. I reached out for him and took him in my arms as he giggled. His personality was developing so quickly. He was so happy and always smiling. He knew me by my voice, too. His head would turn to the direction I was speaking from and he would just watch me.

I loved the way he gave his lovies or hugs, held my hand, giggled, and the way he fell asleep in my arms that night, snoring. He was still holding tightly onto my hand. I looked at the tiny, sleeping face and realized this little boy had me wrapped around his fingers. That resonated with me as I rocked him in the living room.

“I’m so sorry I won’t be giving you a little half-vampire to run around and cause all kinds of trouble with. I’m sorry I can’t give you the kind of best friend to grow up with like I had, as much as I want to.”

I could see Sam nudge Emily in the side and nod his head my way. They had both heard what I whispered to Brandon and knew that I needed a moment away from him. Emily carefully picked him up and told me to take a few moments to myself. Tears started to bubble out of my eyes as I walked outside. Through my blurry tears, I found an old tree stump to sit on that was close enough I could still see Sue’s house in the distance and knew that if I whispered or screamed, they would hear me. My phone began to vibrate again. It was Edward. I cleared my throat and sniffled so I wouldn’t sound like a raving lunatic.

“Hello?”

“Make I speak to the most beautiful creature on Earth, please? Oh yea, and she’s my future wife, too.”

“Your future wife is crazy.”

“Of course she is. For some reason she loves me and agreed to marry me.”

“That doesn’t make her crazy, it makes her masochistic.”

“Love, are you ok?”

“No,” I choked.

“What is it?”

“Brandon.”

“Did something happen to him?” He was immediately worried. It was sweet that he cared for him so.

“No, he’s fine.”

“Then what is it? Talk to me.”

“I was playing with him after dinner and he fell asleep on me. I just looked into his tiny, little face and I lost it.”

“Bella?”

“Don’t overreact and don’t think I’m going back on what I want, but looking at Brandon tonight, seeing him, holding him, smelling him, made me realize that I want one of him. I even apologized to him while he slept.”

“Apologized? Apologized for what?”

“For not being able to give him a half-vampire best friend to grow up with,” I choked out as I started to tear up, “and I know that’s an inconceivable notion. I also know I somewhat don’t have a choice anymore, but--,”

“Bella, we could try something.”

“Like what,” I said very confused.

“You do have a choice and we could see what happens if you chose differently than you already have.”

“Edward, do not go there. I want you more than I want a baby. I want a life with you more than I want a baby. I won’t even consider choosing differently.”

“But if you just decided to not marry me, we could see what happens, what Alice sees.”

“Edward, it wouldn’t be a true vision because there’s no way on Earth I could decide not to marry you. I don’t want a life if you aren’t in it, baby or not. I don’t need a baby, I need you. I can find a way to be involved in Brandon’s life and Jake and Jessica’s kids’ lives after they’re married.”

“After they’re married?”

“Yea, you’ll love this. Jake proposed to Jessica two days ago. I swear she’s part Alice. She has already planned most of the wedding and wants Jake to wear a pink tux.”

“Oh, I can’t wait to see that wedding.”

“If I can handle it and if we get an invitation. Seems Jessica is a bit turned off at the fact that our wedding is apparently the Forks wedding of the decade or century. She wants all the attention and apparently we are taking it from her.”

“When is it?”

“June of next year. I can’t believe we’re this popular and we live on the other side of the country.”

“Just wait until they learn we’re back.”

“Only to disappear five months later.”

“Five months later.”

“Is there something you need to tell me?”

“We have a one month honeymoon to get away to.”

“Where are we going?”

“I can’t tell you that.”

“You know, if you were a werewolf and I was your imprint you would tell me.”

“But we aren’t;. I’m a vampire and you are a cougar.”

“Raaaawwwwarrr!”

“Don’t make me run all the way out there and sneak in your old bedroom window like we’re back in high school.”

“You wouldn’t have to sneak in if Charlie’s not there. He had me drive his truck so I would have a way him in case something happened. He took his cruiser.”

“Sounds like you don’t believe him.”

“Not when Leah and Seth are going to be spending the night with family and friends leaving him and Sue in the house alone.”

“Boom-chica-bow-wow.”

“Eww! Edward, that’s my dad.”

“Everyone needs a little love on their love card.”

“I’m going to revoke yours if you don’t stop.”

“Bella, are you sure that--,”

“Edward, please stop. There are some other options out there for me to fulfill the mother part of me. However, there are no other options and no alternatives to being with you. I’m not risking all of your lives for mine. Aro already knows and I’m not about to use you all as sacrificial lambs. I’ll be fine, Edward. It is just going to take me sometime.”

“You know I am here for whatever you need, whenever you need it. All of us are.”

“I know and I love each one of you for it. Were you serious about sneaking in?”

“So serious that I left before I even called you. I just went through St. Louis. I’ll be there before midnight.”

“Edward Cullen, do you know how much I love you?”

“Not nearly as much as I love you.”

“I should get back in before someone comes looking for me.”

“Okay. Be careful on your way home and I’ll see you soon. I love you.”

“I love you, too.”

“Bella,” Jake called from Sue’s porch.

“I’m okay, Jake. Just had a momentary lapse and an emotional epiphany.”

“Are you sure you are ok,” he asked only footsteps away.

“Yes. I know he’s want I want, more than anything in the world. He is to me what Jessica is to you. Could you imagine life without her? Have a child with someone other than her?”

He shook his head “no”.

“Then you understand. I’ll still have Brandon and your cubs,” I chuckled.

“And maybe a sibling if Charlie and Sue keep looking at each other like that.”

“Jake!”

“What? Charlie’s a pimp. I should get him a furry purple hat and a pimp cup.”

“Oh, he’ll love that Jake. You guys should know Edward’s on his way.”

“Back here already?”

“Yea, well to Charlie’s. Said he’d be here about midnight. He misses me and I need him so he’s coming.”

“I’ll let the pack know tonight at the meeting. Quil brought up a good question; wouldn’t Aro know about us by touching you or the Cullens?”

“They are going to do what they can to avoid his touch. It has to be skin-to-skin contact. It will be entertaining, to a point, to watch them maneuver around him. With me, it’s a little more complicated. You know how Edward, Jasper and Alice have their talents? Well, I have one, sort of. Edward has never been able to read my thoughts. A friend of the family, Eleazar, has an ability to see what other’s abilities are. He thinks I have a latent talent, one that when I’m a vampire will be stronger. He calls it a shield. I have a natural ability to keep people out of my head. So Aro shouldn’t be able to see in my head or know about the pack.”

“That’s freaky Bella.”

“I’m not only good with weird or freaky, I play one on t.v.”

It was getting late and I really wanted to get home and get cleaned up for Edward’s arrival. Jake and I made it back into the house and I started to say my goodbyes. Sue insisted on sending a plate of food home with me that way I wouldn’t have to fend for myself if I got hungry because Charlie wasn’t coming home tonight. I heard that and shuttered. I finished my goodbyes and drove Charlie’s truck home.

I took a long hot shower, slipped into a navy blue, knit spaghetti-strapped nightgown. I initially sat down to read a book on my bed, but woke up when I felt a cold, hard, familiar body slip behind mind and wrap his arms around me.

“Hello, handsome.”

“Hello, gorgeous. I’m assuming Charlie is with Sue since I don’t hear him snoring.”

“Please don’t go there. Jake is already calling him a pimp and wants to buy him purple furry hat.”

“I think I’m starting to like Jake,” he chuckled.

“Good, because he’s standing up on your side of the alter. He refused to wear a dress so he could stand on my side.”

“That’s disappointing.”

“I know. I was hoping Emmett could share the comedic relief and attention.”

“I have a feeling he won’t get all the attention.”

“I know. It will be me and Jessica going at it when she tries to steal my day because she’s jealous.”

“Just exactly when did you get so possessive?”

“Since the day Tanya tried to steal you from me and Jessica tried to steal my thunder.”

“You are going to look so beautiful that no one will ever even glance at either of them. Their beauty will pale in comparison to yours.”

I twisted around to face him, “Are you trying to woo me to win your love card back, Mr. Cullen?”

“Oh, I guess I have to turn things up then. I wasn’t even aware I had lost it.”

“I never said you lost it, did I?” I licked his lips with the tip of my tongue softly. I then turned back over saying, “Ok, good night.” I looked over my shoulder and giggled at his dropped-mouth expression. I turned back over to face him and was crushed into his arms.

“You are not going to go anywhere.”

“I would not dream of it.” He kissed me and our kisses were hotter, wetter, and more passionate than they had ever been. While his lips conformed to mine, one hand was in my hair and the other grabbed at my night gown. I heard a slight rip and felt a dear in the back. He pulled back from me.

“No, don’t stop,” I moaned grabbing at his clothing trying to hold him closer to me.

He moved in closer and whispered, “Please be careful.”

We were back to giving into our passion. His hand was roaming up and down my body over my nightgown. His hands went up my thighs, over my hips, up my waist, and gently grazed my breasts causing my nipples to become erect. He got bolder and moved his hand up my nightgown to stroke my thigh. Reflexively, my thighs slightly parted as I slid onto my back and he leaned over me.

His hand gently stroked up and down my inner thigh. With each stroke he inched closer and closer to my panty line. His hand moved up my hips and grabbed at my panties like he was going to just rip them off. He immediately released them after I gasped, but did not pull away from me. He went back to stroking my thighs and testing his resolve. The closer he got, the faster my heart raced and the more I wanted him to touch me. Through his next pass, his hand grazed over my panties applying just the perfect amount pressure on just the perfect spot causing me to moan into our continued kisses.

He did that three more times and each time he pressed just slightly harder causing me to moan a little louder and a little longer. Instead of going over my panties again, as he started to stroke down my body, his hands under them. He moved his hand over my folds twice before slipping a finger onto my most sensitive spot. I could feel that spot coming to life as he made short, circular motions. He started to increase his speed and I felt a euphoric sensation surge through my legs.

Edward then slipped that finger inside me and found a spot that almost caused me to go insane. His thumb replaced his finger on my bundle of nerves. It started to get harder as his thumb moved faster. My hips started to thrust and match the rhythm of his fingers. My moans increased in frequency and volume. The euphoria started to surge through the rest of my body and was becoming more intense.

As his pace increased, so did mine. I moaned loudly and grabbed the sheets as I thought I was not going to be able to take this feeling anymore. My body felt like it was going to explode as he moved his fingers faster inside me. It was like I was standing on a cliff and ready to jump off of it but was only taking baby steps towards the edge.

Again and again rubbed bundle of nerves and thrust his finger inside me. My moans started to turn into light yelps and grunts. I wanted him to move faster inside me. I wanted to feel him inside me. His fingers sped up one last time before I had to bite my lip to stifle a scream. I jumped off that cliff and had a hell of a hang time. I grabbed my pillow and closed my eyes. I almost tore it apart as my legs locked, my back arched, my voice rose three octaves and this wave of pleasure encased my whole body and I saw the brightest stars.

As I slowly came off my high, my body relaxed. My body slightly convulsed and jerked every few seconds. I was so sensitive between my legs that as he removed his fingers I winced. I opened my eyes and looked up at him. His face was in awe.

“That was so amazing and you are so fucking sexy.”

“Edward, language! I was amazing?”

“Yes, you-the most beautiful, amazing incredible woman I have known. I should add loud in there, too.”

I bit my lip. “Oh, um, how loud was I?” I started to blush.

“I love that color on you. You had some volume on you.”

“Whoops.”

“At least you did something that no one will notice.”

“What are you talking about?”

He glanced at my headboard then back at me. I looked up at it and found a huge hole in it. “What the hell?”

“It was either the headboard or you. I choose the headboard. It took everything in me not to rip your clothes off and make love to you.”

“I’m kind of glad you didn’t. I would not have a wall and I’m pretty sure Charlie would notice that. I’m sure I can put something over the hole to hide it. At least now we know you have some control. Maybe we can find a way to build up a certain tolerance so you can handle our wedding night?”

“For now, let’s take it slow and easy, ok? But there is no tolerance or threshold for the magic you possess or the spell you hold on me.”

“Bibidy-bobbity-boo,” I laughed.

He kissed me sweetly and passionately before I curled up to his body. A short while after our experiment, I fell asleep. When I woke up there was a note from Edward on my pillow. He told me I was amazing last night and that he loved me more than he could have ever imagined. He was going hunting, going to change, and then meet me back at Charlie’s. I felt like we were sneaking around like a bunch of teenagers…and I liked it.

Charlie never caught wind that Edward was in town. I hated lying to him, but I also didn’t want Charlie feeling that Edward was stepping on his toes or his time by being here. He only kept me company when Charlie had to work and at night. He spent the rest of his time at the house or hunting.

When it was time to fly back to New Hampshire, and after I checked in at the airport only to find out my ticket was miraculously upgraded to First Class, I found Edward sitting in the seat next to mine. And he called me sneaky.

When we got back, Alice and Jazz picked us up and the rest of the family was waiting at home for another Christmas Celebration sans the crazy décor.

“Um, Alice?”

“No, Bella, I did not do any decorating.”

“So no smiling smoked deer this year?”

“No. But more because Emmett wanted to make a robotic grizzly bear that would greet you by doing the Macarena to Jingle Bells.”

“I don’t think I can get that image out of my head now.”

“Esme made sure he did not make a spectacle out of the season.”

“Thanks, Esme. Have your gifts arrived yet?”

“Mine did,” Alice chimed as her bracelet glimmered in the light. “Rose and I love it! Everyone else’s is here minus Emmett’s. He’s slightly disappointed, but it’ll be there once we get back.”

“He better like it otherwise I will be posting pictures of him as the Prima Ballerina all over Forks when we get back.”

“Although a great idea, it’s not necessary.”

We got home to a normal house and hugs were passed all round. A beautifully crafted meal was waiting for me. While I ate, Emmett asked why I didn’t get him a rubber duckie. I told him I was afraid he’d try to eat it.

I very quickly saw a glimmer of a silver spoon and was startled when I realized Esme was standing behind me holding her hand in front of my face. Emmett looked ashamed as Esme wiped mashed potatoes off of her hand with a cloth napkin.

“There will be no food fighting in my home.”

I snickered while he stifled a laugh.

“If you two are like this while she’s human, I’m going to have to put plastic covers on everything in the house when she’s changed.”
