This is my take if Edward didn't leave Bella.

Chapter 1: The Plan

"ISABELLA MARIE SWAN," Edward yelled. "We are not going to discuss this subject anymore. I am not going to change you and that's final. I want you to live a normal human life."

"Well what do you consider a normal human life, because dating a vampire doesn't really constitute as normal," I said with an air of smugness.

"OK," Edward said smiling, "you have me there. I just want you to experience life the way it's suppose to be lived, with as much normalcy as a person can do, even dating a vampire."

"Fine, I'll let it drop for now," I said as we pulled in front of my house, "but this conversation is far from over."

Edward sighed and leaned over and kissed me. "I just have to hide my car. I'll be waiting in your room." I kissed him back and bounded into the house.

"Bella?" my dad said as I enter the house.

"Hey dad, what are you doing?"

"Just watching a horror movie."

"Cool, which one?"

"Interview with a Vampire."

I chuckled at the irony. I walked in as Brad Pitt was sinking his teeth into Kirsten Dunst's neck.

"Dad can I ask you a question?"

"Sure honey, you can ask me anything."

"Say that vampires existed and you could become one, would you?"

"I don't know if I could drain a person of their blood."

"What if you didn't have to live on humans, what if you could survive on animal blood, would you?" I heard a low growl coming from my bedroom and a grin spread out on my face.

"Did you just growl at me?" my dad said looking at me confused.

"No," I lied, "it's my stomach. I guess I'm just hungry. Now back to my question, would you become a vampire?"

"Well, if I didn't have to kill humans to survive then yeah, I think I would choose to become a vampire. Immortality does have a certain appeal. Just think of what you could accomplish if you didn't have to worry about time." My dad stared off into space, daydreaming of the things he would do. I took this as an opportunity to make my escape.

"I'm going to go make myself a sandwich and go to bed," I leaned over and gave my dad a kiss on the cheek. "I'll see you in the morning."

"Good night Bella"

I quickly ran in the kitchen and made my self something to eat and went up to my room where Edward was sitting on my bed, not looking happy.

"I thought we were not going to talk about this anymore," he said through gritted teeth.

"Well technically we did not discuss anything, my dad and I did and he agrees with me, in a round about way."

"I don't think if he knew the reality of the situation that he would want to punish his only daughter to a world of eternal damnation."

"Stop being a drama queen. Your world is not damned, it's not perfect but it's not damned. And for your information, a world with you in it is considered perfect for me, so please let me in."

"I have made up my mind. You are going to experience life as a human and that's final. Starting now, it's time for you to go to sleep." He kissed me softly on my forehead. His cold lips causing a slight chill that made me shiver. He laughed softly. "I love you Bella. I only want what's best for you."

I looked into his beautiful topaz eyes. "I love you too and you are the best for me. I just want to be with you forever," I said as I closed my eyes.

He began to hum my lullaby softly in my ear. Usually this helps ease my mind and puts me right to sleep but tonight's different. I felt something snap in me. I began to replay all the conversations we had over the issue of me becoming a vampire. The same conversation and always the same outcome, he is determined to keep me human even if it's not what I want. He thinks he knows what's in my best interest and usually he right but not about this.

How can I make him see that I don't want this life, I just want a life with him.

I ran this thought over and over again in my mind, thankful that my mind is the only one that he can't read. All he wants is for me to have a normal human life. Well if that's what he want then that's what he's going to get. Even though it will go against my very nature I will live the most human life I can and see how much of my humanity that he take before he finally gives in.

This should be fun if I can pull it off. I just have to come up with a plan of attack. This is war.
