Just a short little one-shot I thought of while rereading New Moon. Enjoy!
Edward and I were in the cool forest of Forks in my backyard. Edward stared deep into my eyes and spoke slowly.
"I don't want you to come with me."
"You...don't...want me?" I asked with hurt and confusion in my voice.
"No." Edward replied.
Something in me snapped. This couldn't be possible. He told me millions of times that he loved me. If we didn't want me why would he tell me he did? Or better yet why would he tell me what he truly was?
"You don't mean that." I said confidently.
"Yes I do, Bella. We have grown apart and now I have to go." he said turning away from me.
"Fine," I said. "Just tell me one last thing."
"What?" he asked turning around relutantly.
I walked quickly up to him and took his face in my hands. In one swift motion my lips found his. I kissed him earnestly and passionately with all the love I could without breaking his rules. He stiffened slightly, in surprise. The kiss was short but, meaningful. When we parted I still held his face in my hands and stared straight into his eyes.
"Now tell me that you don't want me." I commanded.
"I...don't...want you." Edward said in a strangled voice.
"Now tell me that like you mean it." I said.
Edward sighed and shook his head.
"I can't do that." he said. I didn't understand at first.
"What?" I asked.
"I can't tell you that I don't want you because...I do want you, Bella. Forever." he stated. I smiled.
"I'm so sorry Bella. I just thought that if I said that I didn't love you then maybe you would move on. You would happy and...human. Forever." Edward said bowing his head in shame.
"Edward Cullen." I said in a somewhat angry voice. He looked up at me questioningly.
"How could you ever think that I would move on?" I said outraged.
"You are the only person I have ever, or will ever love! I could never be happy if you weren't with me. After all the times I've said that I love you how could you believe that I was move on?" I demanded.
"I-I...I'm sorry Bella. Sorry that I doubted your feelings and sorry that I almost made the biggest mistake of my life. Could you ever forgive me?" Edward asked repentantly.
"Always and forever." I smiled and leaned in to give him another kiss.
He met me halfway and pulled my close and his lips crushed into mine. This was truly heaven.
