"Bella?" His cool breath fluttered against the side of my face. I flipped over while remaining under my pile of blankets to stare into his lovely face.
"Yes?" His eyes were beautiful in the light of the early dawn outside of my window.
"It's going to be a beautiful day out," I nodded, I could already feel the warmth from the sun against my bedding, "do you mind if I take you somewhere…somewhere special?"
"Kind of like the meadow, special?"
He paused looking out into the cloudless sky, "Yeah, like the meadow sort of."
"Alright." I grudgingly rolled out from underneath his arms (I hated doing that) and trudged towards my dresser. I shrugged on a ribbed tank top and jeans. My tennis shoes were at the bottom of the stairs. After a quick bowl of cereal (Edward's request, I wasn't typically hungry at 6:15 in the morning.) we stepped into the fresh morning.
Edward lifted me onto his back and began to run to his house. I let my fingers wander against the defined muscles beneath his thin shirt. I could feel the muscles in his back tighten beneath my inner-thighs.
We walked through the front door to Alice and Emmett sitting on the living room couch. Emmett was playing Mario on his brand new Xbox; I swear he's a ten year old on the inside, and Alice was frowning at whatever it was that was under her fingernails.
She sprung up in front of me and hugged me lightly. She leapt up the stairs and returned (in record vampire time) with a soft white fleece in her hands, and handed it to me.
"You'll probably want this later. It's going to get chilly tonight." I gave her a questioning look and then just decided to smile in response.
"Oh no problem, Edward, you'll probably want a blanket or something just in case." She winked and gave him a mischievous smile before disappearing. I was a little apprehensive thinking of what that could have meant.
Edward made no effort to cover his glare before proceeding into the kitchen. He obviously had some idea about what she had said, and didn't appreciate it.
"What are we doing in here?" I asked interested. Did they actually have food in this house?
"Packing you a lunch." He smiled crookedly at me; it took a second for my breathing to regulate again.
He tossed an apple, a sandwich he had made in the blink of an eye, some strawberries, a granola bar, and a bottle of water into a colorful bag before putting that into the bottom of a small knapsack thing.
He took heed of Alice's recommendation and stuck a blanket on top of that; he paused and glanced around.
"Hmm…anything else?" It had obviously been a rhetorical question. Without further contemplation he motioned for me to grab his hand. I reached towards him and laced my fingers with his.
"Have fun you two." Emmett snickered from the living room. We left through the back entrance and Edward answered with a slam of the door. He spun around to stand in front of me.
"Ready?" He asked playfully.
"Umm, yes?" He cradled me into his arms and ran into the forest. The minty smell of moss, pine, and undergrowth wafted through the air flying past my face. I breathed deeply and closed my eyes. The wind running created rustled my eyelashes and caressed the apples of my cheeks. I glanced up at the beautiful creature holding me.
"Yes, my love."
"Where are we going?"
A large smile erupted from his mouth and I couldn't take my eyes from him. "You'll see soon enough dear."
I snuggled into his chest and listened to the calm intakes of air that filled his lungs. I could feel the sun on my face and looked up, the canopy of trees was loosening and the sunshine had begun to sneak through. I beamed.
"You're beautiful." I loved when he said things like that.
"Not as beautiful as you." I whined still smiling. He nuzzled his nose into my neck and a fit of giggles took over my chest.
"You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen."
I guffawed sarcastically, "Yeah…I wish."
He didn't seem amused. "You don't see yourself clearly at all Bella. I don't know how many times I have to tell you that. Every other being on this earth pales in comparison to your beauty, to your perfection." I sighed in defeat. This argument wasn't worth the breath; he was immovable on this subject. Which was flattering, but I still remained secure in the fact that I was too average to deserve this incredible creature.
It took him setting me down onto my own two feet for me to realize that we had stopped.
My thoughts flitted away from me as I gaped at the breathtaking view in front of me. We were near the peak of one of the mountains; there was a smooth rock shelf that jutted out from the slope with a small spring behind it. The valley was swollen with green, the leaves of the trees shimmered as the dew of the early morning twinkled in the new sunlight. A blue jay chirped lightly and the trickling water dripped onto the stones beneath it.
I felt two cool hands reach from behind me and cross in front of my hips. He rested his chin on my shoulder and whispered in my ear.
"Gorgeous, isn't it?"
"I'm speechless." Partly due to the gallery of nature in front of me, but mostly due to the sweet breath that was filling my sinuses.
He lifted me up and set me down on the rock to face him. His chiseled features reflected the sunlight and threw rainbows onto the things that surrounded us. He smiled towards me and my heart quickened. I was thinking about breaking the gaze but I was frozen, trapped in a conversation of sight.
He looked away first and gazed into the valley. "I come here to think."
"Think?" He nodded as he shut his eyes and lay back onto the stone. "About what?" He linked his hands beneath his head.
"Everything. Anything. Music, my family, my memories, but mostly about you." I felt my cheeks grow hot; he tilted his head towards me and let one eye open.
"I love it when you blush." He smiled and shifted back to his original position.
"Did you bring me here for any particular reason?" I was still waiting for him to change me. It was the only thing I wanted, the only thing I would ever want, to be with him forever.
"I thought you'd enjoy it." His velvety voice sunk into the heated air. I was about to lay down beside him when he opened his mouth again, "plus I felt this need to discuss something with you."
I responded with silence. Good or bad? My heart began to beat faster. He half sat up and rested back onto both of his elbows. He hadn't continued yet,
"Something important?" I pressed.
"Mmm…I would say so." He smiled without opening his lips. "I think we may need to adjust some boundaries."
I stared at him without comprehending what exactly he was hinting at.
"I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to restrain myself." My brow scrunched together…restrain? From what, my blood? A shiver ran down my spine.
Suddenly, he reached his right arms out towards me and fingered the collar of my shirt. Realization dawned my expression; I felt the elation and butterflies beginning to tickle in my stomach…oh, those boundaries.
