Since you guys have been so good to me on this story, I have decided to give you guys an epilogue.
In nearly a hundred and nine years of waiting for the one to say "I love you" to me, I had been glad it had been pure sweet Bella, rather than a disgusting whore.
"Are you ready?" Alice sang, as she skipped into the room, wearing a silvery white dress that swayed around her knees when she walked.
"Is Bella okay? Is she ready?" I asked, not helping the fact that I worry too much about her. When the battle of Jacob and myself had taken place, he had flashed me through his mind on how he had abused Bella. Rape, whippings, name calling, the list just went on and on.
"Not funny, Edward." Alice's happy mood disappeared almost instantly. "Of course I would have her ready for her wedding day! Give me some credit!"
I rolled my eyes at her outburst. "I can't help but wonder, Alice. Give me some credit."
She just simply rolled her eyes and sighed. "It's amazing how Bella ever managed to fall in love with you, brother. You are way too over-protective for your own good."
"Well can you blame me? She was practically abused all throughout her marriage."
"That is true. Nevermind this sadness though! That is done and over with, this is supposed to be a day of happiness and celebration!" She smiled and turned to skip out of the room.
I sighed and ran my hands through my hair as I left the room and headed into the courtyard, where the ceremony was taking place. Carlisle stood at the alter, holding a bible in his hands and a pastors cloak was draped over his shoulders. Emmett and Jasper stood beside Carlisle and I walked to stand in between Carlisle and Emmett.
"Are you ready, brother?" Emmett asked and clapped my shoulder.
"Yes, Emmett," I chuckled. "I've been ready for almost a hundred and ten years."
"Good to know. I hope you treat Bella better than that dog did."
I suddenly felt my gaze snap towards Emmett.
"What?" he asked in pure confusion.
"You must jest. That is not comical, Emmett! Of course I will treat her better than that dog. I'll treat her with love, respect, and I will protect her no matter what. You act as if I had not learned my lesson, brother."
Suddenly bells started to ring and the bridal march began to play from the grand piano that had Rosalie on behind it. Alice and Esme raced to their places and held their boquets of flowers close to their chests.
I stared down the stone pathway that was covered in falling red rose pedals and suddenly my sweet beautiful Bella walked around the corner. She was so beautiful. Her hair was pulled back and she was wearing the most prettiest wedding gown known to man. She was holding a boquet of white roses close to her chest as she slowly walked down the aisle. She looked down towards me and smiled that wonderful smile of hers, with all of her teeth showing.
How could someone like Jacob abuse someone so graceful and beautiful like Bella? I wondered to myself.
When she reached the alter, I extended my hand towards her and she gratefully took it. I helped her up the steps and we both faced Carlisle. He opened the bible and began to read his verses.
"Do you Edward Anthony Masen Cullen, take Isabella Marie Swan to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
"And do you Isabella Marie Swan, take Edward Anthony Masen Cullen to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
"And so with the power vested in me, I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride."
I guess happily ever afters do come true after all...
