So on with the story...
I was laying in his arms for what seemed like hours, and it was completely heavenly, there was nothing more that I could ever want that didn't include lying in his arms for the rest of my life.
"So what would you like to do with the rest of our day?" he asked me.
"I have some ideas," I said as i leaned in to kiss him. It started off as a sweet innocent kiss, but lead to a full blown makeout session.
Before we got any further, he pulled away from me and wrapped me in his arms again, "While I would love to continue doing this all day, I don't want us to do anything before we are ready for it. My parents always raised me as a gentleman, you know that, you have met them before, and i want to preserve not only my own virtue but yours as well. So let's not do anything that we might regret years down the line." I sighed in depression, but i knew he was right, when i am 50 or even older i would probably look back on that moment and wish that we had waited a while longer to consumate our relationship.
"I see where you are coming from, and we should take this as slow as needed, I mean, we do have the rest of eternity to be together, and I will never let you go now that I have you, so don't expect me too."
"I'm glad you said that because you aren't getting away from me that easily now either, I have only been waiting to go out with you since the fifth grade, I would wait for you until the end of time."
"So what would you like to do now? I mean I am sure we can't do that much now that you know we are dead and all."
"I think I have an idea about something we could do, but we should probably make sure it is okay with Carlisle and Esme before we go." I nodded my head, and he got up from the bed and took my hand and helped me off. Then hand in hand we made our way down the stairs.
We walked into the living room to see Carlisle and Esme sitting on the couch watching tv, but it was obvious that they weren't paying that much attention to it. His arm was around her and she was leaning into him. It was the perfect image of an everlasting love and admiration for one another. I felt bad that we had to interupt them but I wanted to see what Edward had in store for us. Sensing our presence, they both turned around.
"We were wondering if there was anyway that we would be able to take a hike in the woods out back, I know we may be cutting it close even though we are quite a few miles away from civilization here, but I kind of just wanted to go on a walk with Bella." Edward said to Carlisle.
"That should be okay, just make sure you stay within two miles of the house, if not you may get to close to town, and it is to early to test your resistance, but it is out of hiking season so you shouldn't havet to worry about people in the woods."
"Okay thank you so much, we will be back later. Around what time would you like us back?" Edward asked.
"Well here's a cell phone," Carlisle said as he threw the cell phone at Edward, "keep it on that way if we need to get in touch with you, we will be able to."
"Thank you so much," I said as I ran up to them and hugged them, "You are so nice for taking us into your house and taking care of us as if we were your own children."
"It is our pleasure, dear." Esme said as she returned the hug. "Now you to go have some fun, just make sure you come home at a reasonable hour."
"Will do, bye." Edward and I said in unison as we made our way out the back door.
We walked in silence for a few moments taking in our sorroundings and just enjoying each others company. Yeah I know thats so cheesey, but at that moment it couldn't have been more true than in that moment, but I eventually decided it was time to break the silence.
"You know I haven't really taken a walk outside in the woods in what seems like forever."
"I know what you mean, I used to love just stepping outside of the house and walking to some random places in the forest and then just sitting down and thinking about my life. It was always so nice to get away from the pressure of high school and just enjoy being myself without any worries."
"That's exactly how I used to feel, you know, like that one day freshman year when Lauren and Jessica told me that I wasn't good enough to be in your presence, and that the best thing for me to do was fall off the face of the earth, when I got home all I wanted to do was escape so I just went into the woods across the street from my old house and tried my hardest to get lost."
"Why would you listen to those stupid girls?"
"Because I knew subconciously that even though I didn't really believe what they were saying, that part of it was true. I mean look at you, and then look at me, we are in two completely different leagues..." He cut me off by covering my mouth similar to the way I had done earlier.
"That is completely absurd, you are by far the most attractive girl, personality as well as appearance wise in the entire world, and even if it was true, you are the girl I am in love with and they aren't, so you should never worry about anyone ever saying that you aren't good enough. And if you did run off that day in the woods, how do you think I would have felt? Did you think for , one second that by you running off I wouldn't be completely and utterly devasted if you didn't show up again after that."
"Well I didn't know that at the time, I mean how was I supposed to know that if you never gave a single hint as to whether or not you felt the same way."
"Well if I had known that, I would have confessed my love for you the first day I realized what those feelings were." He said as he sat down on a tree stump and pulled me down into his lap.
"All of that is water under the bridge for us now, because you know how I feel and I am pretty sure that I know how you feel and I won't let go of that even if our lives depended on it, because for the past 12 years you have been my life."
"That was the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me, you are the perfect guy you know that right? I mean any girl would be jealous if they overheard those words and knew that they weren't being said about them."
"Well than hopefully my girlfriend isn't the jealous type, because she has secretly been listening in on our conversation, and here I am flattering you as if my life depended it on it." He said jokingly, and I decided to play along with it.
"I don't think that you should be dating this girl anymore then, you could obviously go for someone who is a lot more attractive."
"That would be impossible, you see at the school we used to go to before we were transformed into mythical creatures, she was the most gorgeous girl to ever grace the halls of the school, and she didn't even know it which made her even hotter, and her personality, I mean no one could ever be as perfect as her, she put all her efforts in to putting other people ahead of herself."
"She sounds like she was made for you, so I guess you won't be breaking up with her anytime soon." I said as I nudged him in the ribs with my elbow.
"Never," he said as he kissed my forehead, and then he gently picked me up and stood me on the ground and stood up as well., "now shall we continue our little walk or would you rather go back inside."
"I'd love to continue this walk, but wouldn't your girlfriend be upset if she knew you were spending all of this time with me?"
"She doesn't need to know about this then," he said as he winked at me and grabbed my hand and made our way deeper into the woods. I was really glad that I had lost all of the clumsiness I had when I was transformed, because there was no way I would have been able to make it through the woods with out falling if I still had all my former "gracefullness."
"Hey do you see that," Edward pointed ahead at an area in the forest where you could see rays of sunshine shining through the trees.
"I didn't even realize that it had stopped raining, but I would love to see what is up there that is making it shine as much as it is."
We made our way through the brush and I took the first step into the most gorgeous place that I had ever seen. It was a perfectly round meadow where somehow the grass wasn't overgrown in the slightest and there were beautiful purple and yellow wildflowers in clusters throughout the entire area. In one corner you could even see a small rocky stream gurgling its way through. I could not, even if I tried for the rest of my life, find a more perfect place. I was completely in awe, and I turned around to see Edward's expression but when I turned around I saw that he was still in the shadow of the trees and staring intently at me. I gave him a glance that was meant to ask him "what?" and he answered right away.
"I figured that when Carlisle said that we sparkled in the sunlight it would have been one heck of a sight, but I never imagined it to be like this."
"What do you mean? What are you talking about? What did Carlisle say earlier about sparkling?" I must have missed something in the conversation we had earlier, because for some reason everything that he was saying was confusing me.
"I am talking about how Carlisle mentioned earlier about what happens when we go out into the sun, and how our skin sparkles like diamonds, don't you remember that?"
"Oh yeah," I said as it dawned on me what he was actually saying, "Why are you just standing there then? Get your butt out into the sun light so I can marvel at you in all of your glory."
"Okay, if you insist," he said as he stepped directly into the sun's rays and my jaw dropped. His beauty was increased ten fold with every sparkle that came off of his skin. I instantly felt the urge to touch him just to make sure he was in fact there and not just some figment of my imagination.
"You know, it's incredible how much you are sparkling and its only your arms that are showing."
"Well then you know what has to be done," his hands immediately went to the hem of his shirt and he started to pull it above his head, and once again my jaw was left hanging wide open. But this time it wasn't only because of the sparkling, but because never once in the past few years had I ever seen him without a shirt on, and I must say that puberty certainly did him well.
He walked into the middle of the meadow and laid down in the grass, and I went to join him. I laid down beside him and perched myself on my forearm and looked down at him.
"How did I never realize before that you have incredibly perfect abs?" I said as I took my finger and gently traced the outline of his muscles.
"Well then it's a good thing for me to know that you weren't only after me for my bod."
"Oh I was, don't you worry, I mean who falls in love with personality now a days." i said jokingly as I still traced his stomach
"I know right, but then again now a days it's practically against the law to date anyone who is under a 9.5 based on todays society's standards. Who really cares about brains and personality when I could have a smoking hot babe on your arm."
"Then why are you dating me? I mean I am certainly no where near that on even a caveman's scale let alone todays society."
"Bella, Bella, Bella, you obviously are very unaware of how beautiful you actually are. I mean you were by far the hottest girl in school, and now let me tell you, you being turned into a vampire, well let's just say I'm going to have to keep a tight grip on you."
"You're just saying that because we are dating now and you feel it's you obligation."
"I am not," he said in a huff, "You obviously had never taken a trip into the boys locker room before gym, you see everyday I had to deal with those vile creatures like Mike Newton and Tyler, always saying how hot you were and then placing bets to see who could get you into bed first."
"That's utterly repulsive, I'm assuming you never took parts of those conversations or bets then?"
"Oh I tried to stop them most of the time, but I did take part of one or two of their bets."
"Oh really and what were they? Just so, you know, we could make it so you are guaranteed to win."
"Well the first bet was for your first kiss and the second was I would be the first guy to make you fall in love with."
"Well hands down you won the first one, but I must say I think you missed your chance with the second one.'
"How so?" he said and he looked upset, but I could tell that he was just kidding.
"You see for as long as I can remember I have secretly had a thing for guys who are overly horny, and look like they need a shower constantly, so therefore you never really stood a chance. You see since the first day Mike Newton came up to me and said the most vile thing imaginable to me, I have been in love."
"I think I picked up on that. I always knew that your overly present disgust for him was always really something more."
"That is why it could never possibly work out between us, because you obviously smell to good and are way to gentleman-like for me to ever fall in love with you."
"Those type of things can easily be changed though. I mean I could easily start acting like a drunkard and a horndog and stop taking showers. Heck I might even go roll around in the dirt and never wash it off if it would make you fall in love with me."
"You don't need to do that, because you see I have already fallen for you even though it goes against everything I have ever told myself I would look for in a guy."
"That's good, because I like the way I act, and I have heard that girls are occasionally drawn to how I smell, so I'd rather not walk around all muddy and in need of shower." He said as he kissed my forehead.
"Good because if you ever changed anything about yourself I would have to break up with you because you being anyway other than how you are at this exact moment simply will not do."
"Okay, so I guess I can't dye my hair green and get that mohawk like I was planning to before."
"I don't know, now that you mention it you would look kind of hot with a mohawk," I said as i tried to give his hair a mohawk by simply rubbing it together and standing it on its ends. "But I think that I would miss your old hair to much, and plus I don't think that our hair grows anymore so it would be stuck like that for the rest of eternity."
"You know what, I guess you're right, plus I don't think a mohawk would fit my style, I have never been much for the punk rock scene."
"Well there is always wigs if you feel like pretending, and you better not even think about changing your hair to match those artists who you do like."
"Because if I recall correctly, your favorite artists are piano composers from a long time ago and most of them wore white wigs with curls in them, and you dont have the face to pull that style off."
"So how do you think my hair should be then?"
"Well," I hesitated for a few moment, even though I knew exactly what I was going to say all along. "You are the type of person who should have a truly unique colored hair, like regular old brown or blond would never do you an justice. I was thinking something along the lines of that as a penny, you know a coppery color it would be perfect I think it would go excellently with the the color that your eyes will be in a year or so, because apparently even though they are red right now if we keep up this diet our eyes will become the color of Carlisle's or Esme's."
"Ok, now that we established hair color, how should it be styled because you know hair now isn't only about the color it's all about the way it's styled." He said as he ran his hand through his hair.
"I think that it would look the best if it was styled messy, like you put effort into it but it still looks like you just woke up."
"So then we should probably ask Esme to pick us up some hair dye from the store."
"Or we could just not do anything to your hair, I mean I guess I can live with looking at it the way it is now for the rest of eternity." I said overemphasising the word 'guess'.
"No I can't let you go unhappy for the rest of eternity, I might as well just cut it all off as soon as we get back to the house."
I immediately sat up, "You wouldn't dare?" i asked questioningly. He just laughed.
"Of course not, I just wanted to see what your reaction would have been, and I am very glad you did what you did, because if I was bald I never would have been good enough for you."
"If anything I am not good enough for you." He just shook his head and pulled me into his chest.
"This is really becoming a moot point, why don't we agree to disagree and just say that we were meant for each other, and leave it at that."
"Okay, will do," I said as I leaned in to him and closed my eyes. I was daydreaming about marrying Edward and I could feel my mouth turn into a smile. It was the best dream I could have ever wanted. All too soon I felt myself being shaken.
"Bella, Bella, wake up, we have to go," I opened my eyes and saw Edward leaning over me with his hands on either side of me.
"Let's go then shall we." He said as he got up and stretched his hand out for me to grab on to. I immediately took it and stood up from the ground. I dusted off my back so that there was not grass on me as we made our way home. Home? I couldn't believe I was already thinking of the Cullen's house as home. But it made sense, I mean in this house I had Edward who made everywhere I could ever dream of going feel like home and while i miss my parents a ton, and it gets worse and worse every day but Carlisle and Esme just give off the type of vibes that make a place feel homey. "Are you there Bella?" Edward said as he pulled me out of my reverie.
"Yeah, sorry I was just thinking about things." It was almost as if he could read my mind, with the way his eyes seemed to convey that they knew exactly what I was going through.
"You miss your family dont you?" he said as he pulled me into a hug, "but you know things will get better, because with time you will think of others as your new family, and you know what even though you love Charlie and Renee as much as I love my mom and dad, Carlisle and Esme are willing to take us into their house and act as our parents and in time I'm sure that we will all become one happy family."
"Well maybe not everyone will be family."
"Why is that?"
"Because it is wrong to date your brother or sister in pretty much every place that has people or vampires living in it."
"Okay, now we really must be going back, would you allow me to try something?" he asked hesitantly.
"Umm... sure," and he picked me up bridal style and starting running back to the house. In around a minute and a half we had made it to the porch. I felt ike I was flying the entire time he was running and when he slowed down I could feel the motion set in place. But as soon as he set me down on the ground I already missed the feelings of myself in his arms, and I let out a small whimper, which made him smirk, oh god that smirk and how I loved it so.
He leaned down and whispered in my ear, "I would gladly love to hold you like that any time you want just say when, but not now I think Carlisle and Esme think it's time for us to come inside. He opened the door for me and waited for me to enter before he followed behind. He was by far the greatest guy that ever lived on Earth, and the best thing was he was all mine, and I was never letting go.
A/N: I love it, it is my longest chapter yet, and I am sorry about any typos but the computer I am on doesn't have spell check. Okay and I know you guys may want them to "get together" in that sense but I can't see either of them being the type of people to rush a relationship in that way. So the relationship is going to have to blossom between the two of them, after all when it comes to the love of your life you dont just rush these type of things.
So please Review, because you know you love me and my amazing story between these two love birds lol.
