Rating 5/5   Word Count 934   Review this Chapter

They were all sitting in the living room and wrapped into their own conversations. Alice was bouncing up and down in her seat. When she saw us, she looked relieved. She gave me a huge, encouraging smile.

“Everyone we have some news.” He cleared his throat.

“We’re back together!” I yelled.

Esme put her hands over her mouth as she gasped. She looked like if she could cry she would be right now.

Alice suddenly hit me with full force. It was harder that the first day she saw me again. Maria, Rosalie and Elizabeth clapped and cheered.

Emmett yelled “About time!”

Kevin and Jasper looked pleased, but refrained from cheering. Carlisle came up and patted me and Edward on the shoulder.

Kyle stated “I knew it would work out eventually.” As he smiled his dashing smile.

After Alice finally let go, Edward wrapped his arm around my waist again. Then Alice was pulled into a vision.

“About time!” she yelled.

Edward smiled, but his face was firm.

“Alice don’t spoil it. Just keep it to yourself for five minutes. Can you do that?”

“Yes, but hurry up.” She squealed and walked back over to sit on Jasper lap. She leaned to whisper in his ear.

“Don’t tell him either. It’s supposed to be a surprise for everyone, not just Bella.”

“Fine, but I can’t hold it in much longer.” She pouted, but couldn’t hold back the smile.

“What’s going on? What surprise, Edward? You know I still don’t like surprises?”

“You like this one, I hope.” He added quieter.

“Edward, what did Alice see?”

“You’ll find out soon enough.”

“Come sit down, Bella.” Alice patted the couch next to her. I pulled Edward with me. He pulled me onto his lap before I could sit down.

“Bella, your power is to be able to change your appearance, right?”

“Yes, why?”

“Do you think you could turn back into a human Bella?”

“I guess, but why do I need to?” I was getting aggravated here.

“You’ll see.”

“Okay… I’ll be back. I don’t like changing in front of people, so I’m just going to go upstairs. I’ll be right back.” I got up from Edward’s lap and walked to the upstairs bathroom.

I closed the door and looked in the mirror. I closed my eyes and imagined my old self. I felt my hair getting longer. My legs shortened and my curves weren’t as curvy. I imagined my brown eyes and my face. My eyes itched a bit as they changed the color. My face began to change, my cheek bones not as prominent, my forehead became a little longer. I knew I couldn’t change my skin tone or texture, so it remained pale and granite like.

I opened my eyes and looked into the mirror. Except for my skin, I looked the same as I did eighteen years ago. I liked my vampire self better, but I would do anything for Edward so I didn’t complain…aloud anyway.

I opened the door and walked out. At least when I changed I still maintained my vampire supernatural powers and gracefulness. I heard the whispering going on down stairs. They kept it at a level just low enough I couldn’t hear it. I frowned, they were up to something.

I flew down the stairs and they were surprised to see me standing there all of a sudden. They all composed their faces quickly and relaxed back into their seats. Alice gave Edward a meaningful look. I saw his eyes go up to the ceiling and then towards the ground. They were having a private conversation.

“You know it’s rude not to include a person in a conversation. Especially when it’s most likely about said person.” I crossed my arms over my chest and gave them my best displeased look.

“I’m sorry sweetie, but it’s a surprise. I was arguing with Alice and they got involved.” He came to stand next to me. He wrapped his arms around my waist.

“Yes, I noticed. So what were saying yes to a moment ago?”

He looked puzzled, or just covering something up.

“You’re not that discreet Edward. Alice talked to you through your head and then you looked towards the ceiling and then towards the ground, it was a yes. Now what was the yes too?” I explained. He didn’t fool me.

He smiled to me. “You noticed that did you? I told you it’s a surprise.” He kissed my forehead.

“Apparently not much of one if the entire family knows about it.”

“But it’s still a surprise for you.”

“yes.” I gave in; he wasn’t going to reveal anything to me.

“You’re beautiful by the way. Can you stay like this forever?”

“Not forever, but I’ll change once in a while… for you.” I added.

“Good. Here come sit back down.” He pulled me back to the couch and sat me down closely next to him.

“Ok, here it goes.” He took a deep breath and looked me directly in the eyes. I melted in to them instantly.

“I want to ask you something, but I wanted our families to be here when I did. Thanks to Alice they already know.”

“Know what?”

“Wait just a minute…” he took a deep breath and a smile played across his lips. “

“Isabella Swan will you marry me?” he dropped to one knee in front of me. The room fell silent. He pulled out a ring and opened the box to an exquisite ring. I was speechless.
