Chapter 1: Forever

*Bella's POV*

The sun rose high in the morning sky as I untangled myself from the cocoon that was Edward's arms. I lost my breath as Edward's skin broke into a thousand diamond facets, a result of the sun peeking in through the glass doors of our room. No matter how many times I saw Edward in the sunlight, it was still as shocking and beautiful to me as it was that first day in our meadow. I continued to shamelessly gape in awe at my husband as the sun rose higher into the sky. Edward let out a low chuckle at my reaction.

"One would think that you would be used to seeing this by now", he said, smiling openly at me.

"No matter how many times I see it, I'll never be able to get used to it. The sight of you will always take my breath away", I sighed.

"The sight of you will always take my breath away", he replied, leaning in to give me a loving kiss. I was the first to pull away.

"Renesmee will be up soon", I said, smiling at the thought of our daughter sleeping soundly down the hall. Her growing had slowed down tremendously through the years. She was only 5 years old, but had the physical looks of a 12 year old and the intellect that could surpass most adults.

"Well, we best ready ourselves for her presence then." Edward said, pulling me to our walk- in closet. Alice had lightened up on me a bit, allowing me to have a small supply of non-designer jeans, t-shirts, and tennis shoes. It was a much appreciated relief and I promised her that I would try to wear some of her beloved fashion outfits once every week. It was a compromise that we were both happy to agree on. Dressing quickly in the first things our hands fell on; we were soon completely dressed in fresh clothes for the new day.

"Mmmhm", we heard Renesmee sigh, as she awoke from her peaceful slumber.

"Momma… Daddy?" she yawned sleepily, as she stumbled out of bed. We were at her door just in time to witness her open her door, rubbing her eyes as she did so.

"Good Morning", Edward and I said in unison, as a small smile broke across her beautiful face.

"Good Morning", Renesmee replied, a full smile now on her face.

"Why don't you go get dressed? Then we can go have a quick hunt before we go to the main house." I said.

"Ok, momma." She said, walking back into her room towards her dresser. She picked out a few articles of clothing before heading into the bathroom to wash and change.

"She'll be a few minutes." Edward said, pulling me towards the couch in the living room. He pulled me down next to him and placed his arm lightly around my shoulder. I nestled happily into his side, resting my head on his shoulder. We sat in comfortable silence as we waited for Renesmee.

"Emmett and Jasper want me to go with them on a hunting trip Saturday." He said suddenly, surprising me. "It will only be for a day or two. Three days at the most".

"Oh.", I said. "Were you planning to go with them?" I asked quietly.

"It depends." He stated.

"On what?"

"You, love."

Me? "Edward, of course you should go if you want to. Don't let me stop you from having fun with your brothers." I replied.

"It's just that, I know how anxious you get when I'm gone." Edward said, pulling me closer to him. It was the truth, of course. I absolutely hated being away from Edward for any length of time. It made me anxious, and brought up some rather unpleasant memories when I started to dwell on things for too long. Not to mention that I always felt like a piece of me was missing when I wasn't with him.

"That's just something that can't be helped, I'm afraid." I sighed, closing my eyes. I felt his hand under my chin, pulling my face up to his until I was looking him straight in the eyes.

"Are you sure?" he asked me seriously.

Honestly, not at all. "Of course I'm sure. I'll just miss you, is all" I said.

"I'll miss you too Bella, love. Every second that I'm away from you" he stated, hugging me to his chest.

"Ok! I'm ready!" Renesmee came skipping out the bathroom in blue overalls.

"My ladies", Edward said, taking both mine and Renesmee's hand and walking us to the door. "After you" he said, opening the door for us and letting us walk ahead of him. He flashed us a dazzling smile.

"Ready?" Edward asked, scooping Renesmee up in his arms and helping her climb onto his back.

"Ready." Renesmee said with a laugh.

"So am I." I said, nodding. With that, Edward took off running, with me right on his tracks.
