An idea I got from a story I read. Enjoy and please check out my other stories!
"Bella?" I turned as my angels voice sounded behind me. I smiled up at him and he leaned down towards me. I turned my face up for a kiss but he stopped centimeters away. "Do you know what tonight is?" He had just washed my face with his sweet smelling breath and he expected me to remember something? "Our anniversary Bella. Our one year anniversary."
Oh, that. Now that I remembered I was trying to figure out a way to give Edward his present. Well now was a good time. "I have your present if you want it now." He shook his head and opened his mouth to reply when two pairs of strong arms picked me up and set me down in front of Alice's bathroom.
"Nope, you're not going to give him your present yet. Although it is an amazing gift. We are going out first and then you and Edward are going to come home alone…" Alice's voice was full of implications, and I was grateful I could no longer blush. As it was, my head tilted towards the floor and I stared at the carpet. "Rosalie and I are going to get you ready, and Edward is going to take Renesmee to Jacobs for the night. So shut up and let me work or I will use force. Pick."
She didn't wait for my answer but pushed me through the door towards the torture chamber. I sighed and sat quietly in the chair while the two female vampires hurried around me in frenzy. I could follow their movements now, but that did not make me any happier about it. Then Rosalie brought the dress out. It was a royal blue dress, that had a low neckline, no back, and it ended about mid-thigh. I shook my head rapidly, but Alice just handed me the dress saying "Edward helped pick it out."
Damn it, she always knew what to say to make me do something. I took the dress and slipped into it, turning to face myself in the mirror. My hair was in soft cascading waves down my shoulders and my make-up was at a minimal. I turned to thank Alice for that but was met by the sight of Edward. He was wearing a black-brown short sleeve button down shirt, and extremely sexy fitting jeans. I threw myself in his arms and asked "Where are we going? Why am I in a dress but you're in jeans?" I knew I was whining.
He grinned, but before he could say anything Alice's voice screeched through the house. "Don't you dare tell her anything! She'll love it and that's all she needs to know." I sighed and leaned against Edward, content to simply ogle at him.
After what seemed like hours later Alice came to drag me downstairs and into Rosalie's BMW. When we started driving as soon as I sat down, I voiced my concerns. "Edward is coming with us right? I would like to spend my anniversary with my husband."
Alice glanced back at me, her expression gleeful as she realized that I still didn't know where we were going. "Of course he's coming. We are just going to get there first. I'll explain everything when we get there." I sighed but stayed silent the rest of the trip, lost in my thoughts.
Of course, being me, I missed when we pulled into the parking lot and was alerted by loud music. I glanced at the source and groaned. A huge neon sign proclaimed that we were at a night club. I turned glaring at Alice. She grinned back at me.
"Ok I haven't told what exactly we are doing. We are going to walk in there and try to get as many men's thoughts on you as we can. That's why we gave you the best dress." Ha, best. She means most revealing. "And we both have our wedding rings on. I took yours off." I glanced down and realized with a shock that she was right. I hadn't even noticed. "Our goal is to make Edward jealous. It will make tonight much more interesting for you." Again, the implications behind her words had me glad I couldn't blush any longer. But I had to agree. Being jealous brought out Edward possessive and more animalistic behavior. Although I would never admit it, I loved it when he gave in to more of his predator side.
Alice grinned at me as we stepped into the club, the loud music almost overbearing. One quick glance around assured me that almost every guy was staring at us, mostly at Rosalie. I sighed quietly, relieved, but it quickly turned into an angry huff when Rosalie raised her hand and pushed her hair out her face while flashing her wedding ring. An audible sigh went through the club and most of them transferred their gaze to me. Alice grabbed my hand dragged me out onto the dance floor murmuring in a low voice "Dance like we taught you last week. Edward doesn't know about that. And make sure to move around a bit, so that every guy has a chance to look at you."
I nodded and started dancing. Since I became a vampire it became easier. Of course the new way Alice taught me how to dance was nothing like the sweet innocent dances Edward liked. This involved lots of hip shaking and grinding. Oddly enough, I couldn't wait until Edward came and danced with me. I was quickly surrounded by men, all eager to dance with me. I danced with as many of them as I could, letting myself into Alice's plan.
I jumped when I felt a pair of arms wrap around me from behind. "You will not believe the thoughts in this place. Although I agree with most of them, I am not sure whether to kill Alice or to thank her. You look truly stunning in that dress." I shuddered, both at his words and at his tone. I was literally trembling with I felt his hand spread across my bare back. He chuckled and the vibrations only increased my trembling. "The men in this room want to know if I am being nice to you or not. Apparently they think I'll never get you if I act like a gentlemen."
Alice came over whispered in my ear "As long as he is a gentleman, ignore him. Make him suffer." She smiled at Edward who had walked up beside me and skipped over to Jasper.
I smiled sweetly at Edward who was standing there with one hand out and a knowing smile on his face. I trusted Alice a lot more lately and I wanted him to be jealous. So I spun around and began dancing with the nearest men. They all shot smug looks at Edward. I glanced at him and just managed to stop a shudder. He looked like a vampire, a livid merciless vampire. I continued dancing until I felt someone tugging on my hand. I spun to find Edward pulling me into the middle of the dance floor.
He grabbed my waist and pulled my back into his chest. I couldn't stop my shudder this time. I turned around to find Edward staring at me. I grinned and started to dance with him. He smiled back, but it was a wicked smile. I shuddered once more and surrendered myself to the music.
Several hours later, Edward and I had finally made our way to our house. Edward turned to run towards our cottage but I shook my head. "No, were staying at the house tonight." Apparently Edward liked the idea because he grinned and swept me into his arms, carrying me bridal style. He sat me down in the arm chair next to his piano.
He walked over to his piano and sat down on the bench. "Before going back to our cottage, I want to give you your present." He smiled at me, his gaze filled with so much love and adoration that I couldn't help but sigh softly. He turned to his piano and began to play.
The song started out happy with an undertone of despair. But it was beautiful. It transferred so that it was full of sadness. Then came a joyful period and with it came fear. I still had no notion of what it could be about, but I knew Edward could find inspiration from anything. He could make his piano talk in emotions. It was truly beautiful. It ended with a flourish and a silent promise for more to come. My shoulders were shaking and my eyes pricked with tears that would never come.
My husband hurried over to me and crouched down in front of me. "Are you all right? Was that ok? Did you like it?"
I nodded and threw my arms around his neck, clutching him to me. "That was amazing. But what was it about?" I felt stupid asking that, like I should've known what it was about. I felt guilty not being able to guess, hoping Edward didn't think it was his lack of composition skills.
He chuckled and leaned his forehead on mine. "Bella, it's your human life." I nodded; I could see it now. The happiness but a bit of despair was when we first met and Edward was struggling with his inner demon. The period of sadness was when he left me. The joyfulness and the fear were when Victoria was hunting me and when I was pregnant with Renesmee. And the ending was my transformation. I was amazed and I lowered my mental shield for him. He smiled crookedly at me and wrapped him arms around me, lowering his head for a kiss. I turned my head and he pulled back.
"Not until after you get your present. It's in two parts. Here is the first one." I reached into the cushions of the couch for the small box Alice had placed there earlier. I held it out to him, getting nervous.
He smiled at me and opened the box. "Um… Bella this is my Mp3 player…"
I nodded laughing. "Go under playlists, and scroll down to the one named BHB." Bella's Heart Beat. I waited until he scrolled down and he paused, apparently waiting for my instructions. "Press play." I waited, holding my breath as he began to listen.
Understanding crossed his face, and then utter amazement. I could hear my heart beat as well. I had purposely speeded up my heart beat by thinking about Edward, knowing he loved my rapidly beating heart. I somehow managed to speed it up and slow it down on my command for once in my life. He waited until the twenty minutes of my constant heart beating was over and then he turned to me. Again, love and adoration colored his face. "Bella… I don't know what to say. You continue to surprise and amaze me. That was… much better than any gift I ever could give. You don't have to give me the second part. This is enough."
I smiled at him. The second part was the one I was most excited to give to him. "No Edward, I have to give you the second part. Please be good. Now, I need to go get your present from our cottage. I want you to stay sitting on this chair, and most importantly, I want you to stop breathing so you can't smell a thing." I got up and gestured towards the seat. He sat down and looked at me. I raised my eyebrow and he grinned, cutting off his breathing. I ran back towards the cottage and stepped into the kitchen, finding what Carlisle had placed in there when Edward had left. I grabbed it and ran back towards the house, freezing outside to make sure Edward wasn't breathing.
I stepped into the house, keeping the present behind my back as I walked towards Edward. "Are you ready? Just nod." He nodded and I carefully opened one end of the bag and spoke one word. "Breathe" What he was forever saying to me as a human, now I was using it on him.
He took a deep breath and his eyes widened and darkened. "Bella? May I have my present?" He kept his voice sweet, but I could see the hunger in his eyes. I handed the bag to him and he held it under his nose, smelling it for an immeasurable amount of time.
When he finally looked up I spoke. "I had Carlisle take my blood and keep it preserved for me at the hospital. There isn't enough to turn your eyes red, but you may have to hunt if you don't want you family to see. Not that they don't know." I couldn't think of anything else to say. I watched as Edward put his mouth on the little opening and drank. I could understand his fascination in watching me eat now. His throat moving, his mouth wrapped around the small opening, his teeth flashing as he struggled to get the last drop.
He finished the bag and started towards me. He was stalking me, and I found myself backing up until I hit the wall. He put his arms on either side of me. "Bella that was the best thing anyone has ever given, beside you giving me yourself of course. That was… I can't think of words to describe it. I love you so much." He crushed his lips to mine and I eagerly licked the remaining traces of blood from his lips, eliciting a moan from him. He crushed his body into mine, and I realized that we would never make it to the cottage. Our true anniversary was about to start and felt my stomach coil in anticipation. Words were no longer needed to describe our feelings for one another.
I hope you like this! I am planning on doing the same story from Edward's POV. Do you think I should? Tell me in your review!
