the day i asked bella to marry me was one of the
happiest days of my life.i slowly got down on one
knee and said to her,isabella swan?i promise to
love you forever-every single day of forever will
you marry me?she didnt have to answer her
expression said it all.i slowly took her left hand
and slid the ring onto her finger.i stood up and
took her in my arms.i slowly leaned forward and
pressed my lips lightly against hers.just then
there was a soft knock on my door and alice came
barging in.she took bellas left hand in her own
and looked at the ring for what seemed like
forever.finally,she looked up and said, this isnt
the ring i saw you put on her finger a few minutes
ago in my vision.the one i saw you give her had a
huge diamond on it.where is it?i let out a quiet
laugh.i told her,alice you must have seen the ring
im going to give her on the wedding day.this is
her engagement ring.one moment her face had a look
of understanding on it.but,when i looked back at her
she had a blank look on her face.the same blank
look that she had whenever she was having a
vision.but her gaze was directed towards bella.i
took a quick look at bellas face and froze.her
expression told me one thing;she was in danger and
i needed to get her out of there immediately.when
i turned back to alice she already had our suit-
cases out and was packing our stuff with the speed
of a cheetah.when i asked her what she saw she told
me the volturi are coming.they know bella is still
human.emmett is messing up their powers so they
wont be able to find you.dad told me to tell you
that as soon as you get to our safehouse in alaska
that you are to change bella immediately.then you
are to stay there for a year until the thirst for
human blood that all newborn vampires experience
during thier first year as a vampire is gone.then
you can come back at the beginning of her second
year as a vampire.please do not come back before
then or she will kill alot of humans and the
volturi wil destroy her and us.take your bags and
put them in my porsche and go because it is faster.
good luck okay.call us when you get there.we will
want to know that your safe.go now and hurry.dont
stop until you are out of washington.okay?bye
edward.bye bella.be safe.

the moment we left forks,i got onto the
interstate and drove over the speed limit
to get out of the state as soon as possible.
before i knew it we were driving through
canada,towards alaska state lines as fast
as we could.bella was fast asleep in the
passenger seat covered in a blanket that my
mother had given her on her last birthday.
the next thing i knew we were in alaska
heading towards our safehouse.i drove north
on the interstate for about three hours and
then took an exit that was completely
covered up by bushes that no one but my
family knew about.by the time we got to the
safehouse it was two in the morning.i
quietly opened my door and got out.i went
over to the passenger side of the car and
opened bellas door.i bent over,picked her
up and carried her inside.then i went back
outside and got the suitcases and carried
them inside.as soon as i got inside i put
down the suitcases and took the key to the
safehouse out of my pocket and locked the
door.i went back and picked up the suitcases
andwent to the open trapdoor and went down
and put them down by the bed.then i went
back upstairs and locked the backdoor and
all of the windows.the fact that my fiancee
was in danger made me take extra precaution.
i went back down the trapdoor stairs and sat
down on the bed where bella was sleeping.at
ten in the morning i went into the kitchen
that was connected to the bedroom under the
trapdoor and turned on the stove.i took out
some flour,milk,eggs,and bacon and made
bellas breakfast.when she entered the
kitchen she was wearing a long red dress and
matching high heels.she told me that she
had thought that alice had accidentally put
one of her outfits in the suitcase until
she found the note saying this dress and
the mathing high heels are a gift from me,
esme,and rosalie.i told her that alice had a
good reason and so did i.the confused
expression on her face gave me the chance to
get her to sit down without questions.she
was just about to ask what was going on when
i sat her breakfast down in front of her.she
looked up at me and asked,edward you did
this.with a sile on my face i said, yes i
did.with tears in her eyes she started
eating.after she was done i took her to
meet some of my friends.then we went food shopping and then went to a party at a friends
house.when we got home it was to in the morning.i looked at her and started to tell her
that tomorrow i was going to change her to a vampire when i noticed that she was asleep so i got dressed for bed and went to bed after calling my dad and telling him that we arrived okay and thanked alice for giving bella that dress because she looked amazing.my dad told me to be safe then hung up.

the next morning i told bella what my dad had said.when she agreed i took her right hand and pressed my lips against it.i heard bella cry out
in pain the moment i bit her.i stopped and wrapped her
hand in abandage.as soon as i did that the fire started spreading through her veins.i stayed next to
her the whole time never moving from where i was.three
days later i took bella and some of my other friends
hunting.bella being a newborn vampire had the look of
thirst for some blood.we held each others hand as i led her deep into the forest.when we got to the heart
of the forest we stopped.all of a sudden a herd of caribou raced across our path.bella being stronger and
faster than me and my friends broke free of my grip and chased after the animals.by the time we got to her
she had killed three of the caribou and injured the rest.when she loked up her eyes were as golden as the sunrise.she said to us,dont just stand there eat.your eyes are to dark.they should be as golden as the sunrise,like mine are.since i hadnt had the the chance to hunt before we fled i didnt argue.i turned to my friends and said dig in and eat.by the time we were done half of the herd was dead.the rest of them we healed and let them live.then we went home and did what we wanted.bella tired from our long hike went upstairs took a shower and went to bed.i stayed up a little while longer and contacted my dad.i told him that bella was a vampire now.i also told him about the big feed we had put on during the hike in the forest near the safehouse.he told me to be careful and safe.i promised him i would and told him to tell the rest of the family that i said hi and that i love them.then i hung up.the next morning me and bella cleaned the house from top to bottom.then we went for a hike.we were halfway to the forest when my cellphone rang.i looked at the caller id and then answered.it was alice.she told me to drop everything me and bella were doing and hide because the volturi were in alaska.they were checking to see how many vampires there were in the world.we werent safe anymore.since the porsche was in the underground garage with the suitcases and where we were sleeping we were pretty much safe as long as we didnt move or talk.the moment i hung up i grabbed bellas hand and raced towards the safehouse.i locked the doors and rushed to the trapdoor.i yanked it open and pushed bella down into the darkness.i went to a little keypad
on the wall and typed in the code to turn the safehouse invisible.Then i went back to the trapdoor,
went down the stairs and closed and locked the door carefully behind me making sure no one could find it. I went over to Bella and told her to stay still and be real quiet and i did the same thing.

the footsteps echoed above our heads and then the whole house became visible again. then i realized that they could smell us in the house. the footsteps stopped right above our heads and we froze. "the scent just disappeared! that's not possible unless the newborn can turn off her and her mate's scent whenever they are in danger," a voice said. 'felix,' i thought and bella stiffened at my thought. 'do you mean the one that tried to kill you in italy the day i rescued your suicidal butt,' she asked in her thoughts. 'yes and i am not suicidal,' i thought back to her. the footsteps returned but this time they were farther away from us. the house became invisible again and we relaxed visibly in our stances. "carlisle we are coming home. it has been two years," i whispered into my cellphone. "okay edward hurry back. the volturi have already searched the house twice for any and all traces of bella's scent. there is no way that they can trace her to here or there," he said and hung up the phone. we headed up the stairs and straight into an ambush! "we got the human aro," felix shouted. "i am not a human you idiotic imbecile," bella hissed at him and breaking his hold on her she broke his arm at the same time. "the girl is no longer a human," caius asked his eyes narrowed. "no i am not," she said kicking felix out the window to prove her point to the volturi. "don't mess with her! she's a little crazy head," i said a small smile playing on my lips. "but i'm your little crazy head," she said wrapping her arms around me. "which makes you a little crazy also." caius gagged, aro looked thoughtful, and marcus just looked plain bored. 'no change in that department,' i thought and bella chuckled. "what is so funny," caius asked through clenched teeth. "nothing," bella said and shook her head. 'moron,' she thought and i had to restrain myself from laughing at her thought. "well it looks like there is no reason for us to be here," marcus said and aro nodded in agreement. they all turned and left us standing there all alone. 'perfect the moron's are gone,' bella thought and i laughed at her.

"edward i love you," bella said and kissed me when i got home from work the next week. we returned home after the volturi left and we got our own house so i was fairly happy. we had adopted two kids: a boy and a girl. our daughter is going to give me hell when she gets older because i'm going to be trying to keep all the boys away from her but i can worry about that in fifteen or sixteen years. i'm just glad bella is happy with me. she kissed me gently and i picked her up and laid her on our bed without breaking the kiss.
