Well this is the last chapter. Vote and tell me if you want a sequel. By the way, I am so very sorry about updating so late. I have had a very difficult two weeks and I have been very angry. This chapter was hard to write cause I had to make it happy. Happiness hasn't been a word that is associated with me recently. Sorry for the late update!
Also, I am beginning a new story soon and if any of you are British, can you please PM me and tell me some slang. I am a silly American and I am oblivious to the meanings of words such as "Bugger" and "Bollocks". I don't even know if I spelled them correctly.
Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight or New Moon. If I did, I would be partying on May 5th in Arizona and reading the first chapter of Eclypse. But I don't and I am not.
They walked into the house sensing tension. It was like she was seeing everything for the first time. She allready loved the house and smiled when she thought of everything that would happen in her new life. She breathed in the scent of the house. It was lovely.
Bella wanted to touch everything. She knew that for five years, she had been comfortable here and called this place home.
She sighed as she walked through the house.
"Alice is in the kitchen if you want to see her." He said.
"Of course I want to see her." He placed his hand on her shouldner and squeezed gently. She smiled inwardly and proceeded into the kitchen.
Alice was sitting at the table reading a magazine. She heard them enter the kitchen and looked up. She avoided Bella's eyes and looked at Edward.
She was so relieved to see Bella and Edward together. She smiled when she noticed his arm around her waist.
"Does she…" Alice began, but Edward, reading her thoughts, smiled and nodded before she could finish.
Alice let out an excited squeal and launched herself at Bella.
"Oh Bella I am so glad you're okay. I was so worried and I am sorry I was mad. I just couldn't take the thought of you with anyone else but my brother." Edward smiled. Bella looked from Edward to Alice with a confused look on her face.
"Oh, yeah. Alice, Bella doesn't really remember any of what happened between you and her." She nodded. Bella decided she didn't want to know. All she wanted was to be alone with the family she loved. She wanted to be with Edward.
"Alice, I don't mean to be rude or anything like that but I would like to talk to Edward for a while if you don't mind." Bella giggled nervously to herself. As happy as she was to see Alice, something was bothering her. She wanted and needed to know something.
Alice nodded and with one brief hug to Bella, left the room.
"Just to be safe from listeners, let's go to your room shall we?" Edward was nervous at her words and wished more than anything that he could hear her thoughts.
"Actually Bella, I don't really have a room yet. I think we might have to use yours." He smirked. Bella laughed and smiled at him.
"Of course. You might have to show me where it is though."
Edward nodded, picked her up and carried her up the stairs. He found her room and opened the doors. He smiled as he remembered that only a few short hours ago, he was here with her and she didn't even remember him. It is funny how life can turn out sometimes.
He carefully set her down on the couch. She began figiting with her hands.
"Bella, what did you want to talk to me about?" Edward eyed her hands anxiously. Whatever she wanted to say wasn't going to be easy on him.
"Well, I…I just…I wanted to know where you were and why you didn't come and find me sooner." The atmosphere had changed drastically from smiling and laughing, to being serious and uncomfortable.
Edward took a deep breath in and looked at Bella strait in the eyes. He knew this would come up.
"Bella, I was in Volterra. I was forced by the Volturi to work for them. I didn't want to, and I would have come back sooner if I could have. The truth was, I thought you were dead. I even asked them to kill me. They refused and told me that if they were going to kill me, then they were going to kill the rest of my family too. I couldn't let that happen." Edward sighed.
"So, you were away, not knowing that I was alive, working for the Volturi, to save our family?" Edward smiled at her question and her use of our. He didn't know that one word could make him feel so happy.
"Yes. No matter how much I loved you, I couldn't let my want to die, endanger my family." Edward felt guilty about admiting this but he had to let her know.
"Edward," Bella stopped him and grabbed his hand. "I understand. Don't worry. I would have done the same thing. Now, how did you get away from them?" Bella shot him a reassuring smile.
"Aro actually let me go one day. He became like a second brother to me and decided to make a deal with me. He only thought of this because I moped around everyday and complained about not getting to see my family. He took me aside one day and told me that I could go home and be with the rest of my coven on two conditions. First, that I wouldn't kill myself or try to ever again. Second, I have to keep the local vampires in line for them. I agreed, and here I am!" He motioned to where he was sitting and smiled at her. She was smiling too.
"Now my little Bella, I don't want to talk about that anymore. All I want to do is be with you. I've had to live without you for five years, and I don't plan on leaving you ever again." He stood up and lifted her to a standing position. He snaked his arm around her waist and pulled her close to him. He never wanted to let her go again.
She missed this. She missed the closeness of him. But right then, all she could think about was how he felt against her. She leaned up and kissed him softly. At first, the kiss was small and delicate. But after the a few moments, it occurred to Edward that she was a vampire too. He put his hand behind her head and deepened the kiss. What was once a tender and gentle kiss was now a passionate rejoining of lovers. Hands traveled everywhere and if some person were to walk in, they would probably blush and later complain about being scarred for life.
After what seemed like hours, Bella and Edward parted. He smiled and rested his forehead against hers.
"…Wow," Bella sighed. "Please, please say you'll never leave again. And please tell me that that will happen again." Bella was short of breath as she pecked him again.
"Oh Bella, that was only the beginning." His lips crashed against hers again.
And that night they spent the first of many nights together. Both of them couldn't ever explain how much love they felt that night for each other. They both, especially Edward, had been waiting for that night since they met.
Bella and Edward lay awake together staring at each other. The only words going through either of their heads were,
It's only the beginning.The End
