The Birth of Elizabeth Theresa Cullen
Edward's POV

I was in the middle of my biology class, spring semester, when Emmett rushed into the room.

"Mr. Thomas, I am—"

"Edward," he shouted up at me, his face pale and sweaty. "She's gone into labor."

I felt my body go cold. She was early. I gathered my things quickly. Susanne, my lab partner, helped me gather a few of my papers that I caused to spill to the floor.

"Go," she whispered, smiling.

"Thanks," I whispered back and rushed out the door.

"Rosalie had just called me from the hospital," Emmett said, hurrying with me to his car. "It seems your baby girl wanted to be born in her future home."

"They had to take her shopping…now," I muttered, shaking my head.

"Thankfully the mall is close to Grace Lee," Emmett said, hopping into his car as I opened the door.

- - - - -

Alice and Rosalie were waiting in the delivery waiting room.

"How is she?" I asked Alice.

"She went into labor outside of Target," she whispered. "Target? Of all the stores she could have gone into labor it was outside of Target."

I rolled my eyes and bit back a smile.

Alice smiled and said, "She's doing fine but you might want to hurry. From what I remember she is only a few minutes apart and the baby is in position."

I went to the nurse station there and the nurse lead me to the room. I hurried straight to Bella. Se was pale, panting, and sweating as another contraction hit her. I took hold of her hand which went straight to crushing mine. I silently went "ouch."

"Edward," she said, straining.

"Its okay, Bella. I'm here."

"I see the head," the doctor said, positioned between Bella's legs, wearing scrubs, a mask, and gloves, all the necessary PPE (A/N: PPE stands for personal protection equipment which would protect you from contracting anything and from the patient from contracting anything as well). "Ms. Swan, I'm going to need you to push."

"You can do it Bella."

I couldn't take my eyes off Bella. Her face scrunched up in pain as she pushed, it going red.

"I have her head! A few more pushes!"

Bella screamed, breaking my hand more as she pushed.

"Okay, you can stop."

I turned away from Bella to watch the doctor hold out a bloody mass, a cord connecting it to Bella.

"She's not crying," Bella cried out.

I tuned back to Bella.

"They have to clear her airways, darling. She'll cry in a few."

Sure enough, a high pitched voice screams. Bella was now crying and I took the towel that the nurse offered me. I slowly wiped away her sweat smiling at her gently at her.

"Alice is mad you went into labor outside of a target," I whispered to her.

Bella cracked a small smile.

"Here is your baby girl, Ms. Swan," another nurse said, carried a now cleaned baby girl all swathed in a pink blanket, her cries now stopped.

Bella coughed on a cry as she held out her arms to take our baby girl.

"She's beautiful," Bella whispered, holding onto the little one.

"She has your nose," I said, smiling down at the little one.

"Hopefully your nose," she said, looking up at me.

"Ms. Swan, what is her name? I'm about fill in her birth certificate."

Bella looked at me. I nodded. We agreed on this name around Christmas.

"Elizabeth Theresa Cullen," Bella said, looking at the nurse.

"Cullen?" I said, taken back. "We agreed on Swan."

She turned back to me. "I changed my mind," she said, smiling. "Besides why mess with changing her name when I'll be a Cullen in a few years."

I laughed before saying, "I love you."

"You better after what I've been though," she said with a straight face.

I laughed and kissed Bella.

The Engagement
Bella's POV

We were all gathered together, all at our apartment. Jasper was cooking something and Edward and Emmett were in there. Rosalie and Alice where in the living room and I was checking on my two year old daughter.

"Lizzy, you okay in there? You've been in the bathroom for some time now," I said, leaning into the door.

"I'm fine mummy," said Elizabeth, her voice all muffled sweet voice.

"Are you sure?"

"Yes mummy, I'm just making sure I'm don't have to go pee during dinner."

I chuckled and went back into the living room when I noticed that Gregory, Heaven, and Frances arrived. Gregory married Heaven the year before and had leaving Frances with us that brought back some memories. Heaven was a sweet girl. I like her.

"Auntie Bella," Frances said, running towards me.

"Hey there Frances," I said, smiling as I picked him up and twirled him around. "How are you?"

"Mumma," Frances said, picking up his parent's British accent, "and I painted a picture for you."

"That was sweet of you," I said, turning to smile at Heaven.

"It was his idea," she said, shyly.

Just then Elizabeth entered the living room, playing with her doll.

"Lizzy," Frances said, smiling.

Elizabeth looked up at Frances. Frances wiggled in my arms so that he could be put down. I put him down and he went straight for Elizabeth. They both sat on the floor by the coffee table. Rosaline and Alice, both stopped to look at them, holding wine glasses in there hands.

"Times does fly," Gregory whispered besides me.

"Yeah it does," I said with a smile.

"Dinner is almost ready," Emmett said, coming into the room. "Lord, those two have grown."

Jasper made my favorite, starting off with a garden salad with the million cherry tomatoes, carrots and ranch. Elizabeth loves baby carrots and tomatoes, her favorite snack. Edward jokes that she better not grow up to be a vegetarian. After the salad, Jasper serving angel haired pasta with roasted salmon and a tomato sauce that tasted great. I wonder what herbs he put in it. And lastly strawberry cheesecake that was to die for….and mouth watering I might add.

"Okay I'm going to have to go to the gym," I joked at Jasper as he placed the slice before me.

Jasper smiled slightly.

"You'll find a way to work those pounds off," he whispered in my ear as he stood up.

I gasped after him. Jasper chuckled to himself and winked before he went back into the kitchen. That was the first time I saw Jasper wink at me ever. Alice was smile at me across the table. I raised one eyebrow in question. She just turned her arm to the side and nodded towards Edward.

I turned and saw Edward was standing. I raised an eyebrow as he cleared his voice.

"As all of you know, today is our three year anniversary that me and Bella have been seeing each other," Edward said.

"We started dating officially after—" I coughed here "—me knocking out Jessica and Lauren."

Everyone at the table laughed. Gregory and Heaven had been filled in on our story.

"I had my worries about having our own little one," Edward said, smiling really quick at Elizabeth. "And yet everything worked out in the end. We are about to start are Senior year—" He looked around the table. Emmett raised his glass in a silent cheer. "—three years we've been together. We've had our issues, some drama—"

"Some is an understatement," I muttered under my breath with a smile.

"—But we all have stick together. And some of you know what I'm about to do."

Edward came around the table to where I was and kneeled before me. I raised one eyebrow. What was he doing?

"Bella in the past three years, I have gotten to know you and I still am. We have worked together, we have fought together, and we've loved together. Bella," he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small black box and my heart started to race, "will you marry me?"

And he opened the box. (A/N: I was too lazy to pick a new ring so I stole the ring from "This is My Destiny" hehe.) The ring was beautiful. A ring of white gold held one beautiful diamond and was encrusted with diamond and pearls.

I was speechless. I opened and closed and opened my mouth only to close it again. Finally, I cleared my throat and answered his question.

"Yes."

The entire room cheered as Edward smiled. I could hear Elizabeth shouting, "I'm wanna to be the flower girl!" Edward slipped the ring on and nothing was more perfect than it was rite now.

The Wedding
Alice's POV
(A/N: If this part seems like the wedding from "This is my Destiny" that's because it is slightly.)

Bella's wedding couldn't have been more perfect. The wedding took place three months after our graduation. Bella was stunning in gown of white lace. (A/N: Darn those websites, I had to pick a different dress for Bella because my original wasn't up anymore. Darn!) We had to be traditional, even though Bella and Edward wrote their own vows, we had to go along with the "something new, old, blue, and borrowed" tradition. The tiara Bella was wearing was my father's great-great-great-grandmother's. The veil was from my mother. I made sure that the garner was blue. Everything was new.

Daddy gave away Bella which made Bella cry. Daddy was like a daddy to Bella now just like mum was like a mum to her own too. So him giving her away was touching to Bella.

Finally…the vows…

"I, Edward Cullen, with all my love, will take you as my wife. I promise to always love you, to care for you when you're sick, to listen to your troubles, to work through the bad and the good times. I will always be honest with you, always kind, always patient, always forgiving. But most of all, I promise to be a true and loyal friend to you, your Best Friend till the end of time."

Emmett handed Edward the ring who got it from Frances. He slowly slid the silver ring on her hand and lifted it to his lips.

Bella whispered something to Edward. I raised my eyebrow and looked at Rosalie. She shrugged.

Now Bella's turn…

"I, Isabella Swan, will always love you even if you don't take out the trash or mow the lawn. I will care for you when your home in bed with the flu before you have to take care of me because I caught what you had. I will always trust you. I will try to be patient while you watch football games on Sundays with Emmett and Jasper. I will listen to your complaints about how tired you are. And lastly, I promise to be the Best Friend you never had, even if you have one. And I promise this till death do us part."

A few people chuckled in the church as Bella turned towards me. I handed her the silver ring and she slid it onto Edward's finger.

"I announce you husband and wife, you may now kiss the bride."

And as Edward went in to kiss Bella, Frances going "yuck" while Elizabeth sighed happily, I thought to myself again, this wedding couldn't have been more perfect.

A Night Together
(A/N: One last lemon for yall)
Bella's POV

"Married," I whispered, kissing Edward as we entered the Honeymoon suite.

"Married," Edward whispered, kissing me as he slowly moved me backwards, slipping the zipper down on the dress.

I moaned, felling his hands on my skin and arched against him.

My dress fell away from me and Edward's clothes melted off him as we fell onto the bed. Edward's hands roamed slowly over me, barely touching at times and then the next molding his hands to my skin as if he wanted to remember it. My hands roamed as well.

"Have I told you how much I loved you as of late?" Edward whispered against the skin of my neck.

"I don't recall…say it again," I said, arching my head back against the pillow.

"I love you," Edward said and then pressed a kiss to the base where my neck meets my shoulder.

He whispered "I love you" over and over again before pressing a kiss to my skin. He was gentle and loving. And he slowly drove me to frenzy. I wanted him and I wanted him now.

"Edward," I whispered.

Edward's face appeared next to mine and he picked my lips slow and sweet. And then he entered me, enter his long hard shaft into the awaiting me. And it was heaven and it got better. He moved slow and sweet before the speed picked up. We climaxed at the same time, Edward spilling himself into me.

We laid there, still. I should hear Edward's heart beat in his chest as my ear laid against it.

"Have I said how much I love you?" I whispered.

Edward laughed.

"I don't think you've said it in the last few minutes," he said, kissing me.

"Well then," I said, rolling us over so that Edward was beneath me. "I think I need to say it."

Edward chuckled as I kissed him and began my slow revenge on him.

The Cullen Family
Fifteen Years Later
(A/N: 15 years from the begining of the story.)

Edward's POV

"Daddy, push me!"

"No Daddy, push me!"

I chuckled at my twins, Angel and Mathew, as they both rushed to the swings. Elizabeth beside me sighed.

"Children," she whispered, rolling her eyes.

"Be nice, Lizzy, they are your brother and sister," I said, placing one hand on her shoulder.

"But they are eleven years younger than me," she said, looking up at me.

I kissed her forehead. Time has flown. Elizabeth was now a teenager, fifteen years old. She looked a lot like Bella. Though her eyes they were mine.

"But you will always be my princess," I said, smiling at her.

"Dad," she said, rolling her eyes.

I chuckled.

"DADDY!" Angel yelled from the swings.

Elizabeth groaned.

"I'll go push them or they will be fighting over you pushing."

Elizabeth hurried up the hill, shouting at the two kids that she would be pushing them. I stretched, scratching my head. I was now thirty-five, a doctor of a local practice here.

Suddenly my eyes were covered.

"Guess who?" said a female voice that I knew all too well.

I smirked. "A playboy model?"

Bella huffed, uncovered my eyes, and smacked me in the arm as I turned around to face her. She smiled and wrapped her arms around my neck and my arms around her waist.

"How was today?" I asked.

"The little children were angels," she said.

Bella was a first-grade teacher and a wonderful one at that. She was passionate about the kids.

"Are we having a get together here at the park?" Bella asked.

I nodded. Alice and Jasper married a year and a half after me and Bella were married. Alice is stays at home mum to watch their little girl Kimberley. Jasper works as the head chief at one of Gregory's restaurant. Jasper, Alice, and Kimberley only lived a thirty minutes from the park so they should be arriving soon.

Gregory and Heaven were happy together with Frances and nine year old Thomas. Gregory's restaurants had multiplied here in the states. Gregory signed away his restaurants over in England over to the England manager. Heaven was my practice's secretary and was going a wonderful job at it.

And lastly Emmett and Rosalie were married last year after a long distance relationship. Rosalie was a news reporter and was away from Emmett for long periods. She however decided to take a position here, still reporting for local news station. Emmett was a business accountant for a business just an hour away. And they were to add a new addition soon, a little girl that they were going to name Heather Grace Thomas.

"Love you," I whispered to Bella.

"Love you too," Bella whispered.

We turned around to watch out children play on the swings. I spotted our friends and family coming down the sideway, the children racing ahead.

This was my life and I won't trade it for anything.
