I do not own any of the characters in this fanfic, they all belong to Stephenie Meyer.

It was finally time. Edward stood in front of me with pleading eyes. His whole being begged me not to make him do this. I smiled awkwardly at him. He closed his eyes and shook his head. I traced the contours of his body with my eyes; he was just as chiseled as he was three years ago. Three long, dangerous, and sometimes painful years. But this is what I wanted; I wanted to be with Edward for the rest of eternity. It didn't matter the trials and tribulations that followed, I would endure anything for a life with him.

Carlisle stood away from the two of us, giving us the time we he thought we needed. Esme stood at his side, her arm snaked around his waist. She cocked her head up at him, staring at his face, mumbling too quickly for me to understand. Jasper was absent from this ceremony, his desire for blood was still too much for him to handle, he didn't want to risk ruining my chances of survival, Edward had told me. Alice was here though; she was perky as every chattering on to Rosalie and Emmet about having a new addition to the family.

Carlisle cleared his throat and began to close the gap between us. He motioned for Alice, Rosalie and Emmet to come forward. He looked around slowly, taking in all our features. He paused when he came to me, and began speaking. "Isabella Swan, do you hereby accept the rights and restrictions of becoming a member of this family, for the rest of your days?" He tilted his head slightly as he looked at me, frowning.

I nodded, "yes I do." Edward dropped his arms to his sides, reaching for my hand. His icy skin sent chills through my body as he tightened his grip. He was tense beside me; jaw clinched together, eyes closed as he took in our words.

"Does the majority of this family accept her into our home?" As Carlisle spoke, he eyed each of his children, and his partner, Esme. She nodded solemnly. Rosalie shook her head viciously, her golden hair fanned out beneath her. Emmet nodded, flashing a grin at me before turning back.

Alice sat up straight and nodded. "Jasper agrees too," she piped up breaking the silence.

I looked at Edward, it was his turn. He tightened his jaw, never opening his eyes, he shook his head silently. I bowed my head; I felt pain rip through me. He was so upset and I was so selfish, I just want to be with him, damn the rest. Tears started rimming my eyes; I blinked furiously to push them back.

Suddenly, Edward cupped my face in his hands. His eyes begged of me something I couldn't give him. I tried to look away, but his grip was firm. He leaned forward and I felt his breath on my neck, I shivered involuntarily. I closed my eyes for a moment, but as I did, he pushed himself forward crushing his hard lips against mine. He seemed for have forgotten his boundaries as I felt his tongue push my lips open. He kissed me desperately, like never before. I could no longer hold myself up and as my knees began to give out, he wrapped an arm around me pulling me into his sculpted body. Everything around me faded away, Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie, Emmet, Alice; nobody was there except for me and Edward.

His hand traveled up and down my back as he continued kissing me. His cool tongue explored my mouth urgently. Finally he broke our kiss. The world spun around me, and my heart was beating so fast I thought I would pass out. I tried to look at him, but I was frozen in place.

Abruptly I felt coolness on my neck, right behind me ear. He kissed my repeatedly on my warm neck as he trailed downward. He came almost to my shoulder when he stopped. I opened my eyes, trying to look at him, but I couldn't. I could feel him pull back a little, and before I could say or do anything my shoulder ached in pain. Heat shot through my body towards the wound that Edward inflicted.

I cried out in pain as he stepped back. His arm still around my waist, he laid me down in the soft, damp grass. I squirmed uncontrollably, trying to defend my wounded body, instinctively. I opened my eyes in little spurts, not being able to keep them open for very long. Once, Edward was above me, staring directly at me. I tried to reach for him, but blackness overtook me before my hand left the ground.

My wrist began to burn as I writhed on the ground, then my other wrist. Tears poured out my eyes as I tried curl myself up. Cool hands gently held my body in place as I screamed, I screamed as loud as I could. I wasn't ready for this, it hurts too badly, and I don't want this!

Things started to move slowly. I could hear my heart beating in my chest as I arched my body upwards in pain. My extremities held down, ceasing any other movement. I yelped as one of my ankles pinched, what was left of my heat glided down my leg to the wound. I was becoming still, I could count the seconds between my heart beats. My mind was starting to go black.


My other ankle was pinched in the same way, it was almost done. I felt no heat rush to this wound, no warmth was left. I tried to peel my eyes open, but I couldn't tell if they were open or closed. Both worlds were black. Something cool ran across my ear, it felt like wind.


Okay, so this is my first fan fic in a very long time. I read Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse in about a week, loving ever minute. This is how I shall pass my time until the next book comes out. :) Please critique me, I'd love to know how to change my writing, or make it better. 3
