Never Leave Me
Summary: Set in New Moon when Edward leaves. But Bella makes him stay.
"Come for a walk with me," He said and took my hand. I smiled at him but I knew something was wrong.
"Bella, we're leaving." He said, simply. I knew something was going to happen and that I wasn't going to like it.
"I'll come with you." I said, knowing that I couldn't but hoping he would let me.
"You can't, Bella. Where we're going...It's not the right place for you." Oh My God, my soul again.
"No! This is about my soul, isn't it?" I screamed at him. "I don't care Edward. I don't care! You can have my soul. I don't want it without you - it's yours already!"
"Bella, I don't want you to come with me."
"You...don't...want me?" I felt well up in my eyes.
"No." He said simply but them spoke again. "Of course, I'll always love you...in a way." He let go of my hand.
"Don't." I grabbed his hand again. "Don't do this."
"You're not good for me, Bella." He said then when he started to say this I thought he might still care. "Don't do anything reckless or stupid. Do you understand what I'm saying?" I nodded and he relaxed a little. "I'm thinking of Charlie, of course." I was wrong. He doesn't care. "And I'll make you a promise in return. I promise that this will be the last time you'll see me. I won't come back. You can go on with your life without any more interference from me...It will be as if I'd never existed."
My eyes widened in horror and my breathing became more rapidly. "Goodbye, Bella." He said and let go my hand again.
"Wait!" I reached for him. He started to reach for me too but then he grabbed my hands and pinned them to my sides. He leaned down and pressed my lips against my forehead. I closed my eyes and tears fell down my cheek.
He walked away. "Take care of yourself, Bella."
Then the anger came. He was walking still and I screamed at him. "EDWARD CULLEN GET BACK HERE RIGHT NOW!" He stopped but didn't turn around. I ran to him and wrapped my arms around his waist, laying my head against the small of his back. He was stiff against me. "Please Edward..." I cried. "Don't leave me. I love you. Please you cant leave me." I started sobbing. "I'll die without you." I was just about to pull away when I felt cold hands on my warm ones. He was holding my hands. I squeezed his hands in mine and he squeezed back. He let
go of my hands and
turned around. "I'm sorry, Bella. I never wanted to do
"Then don't. Please stay." He turned around.
"I can't, Bella."
"Why? Because you're too scared of hurting me? Or is it because I'm not good enough for you? Because I'm not a vampire?"
"No, Bella. That's not it at all. I just don't want to hurt you and damn your soul."
I groaned. "Not my soul again? God, Edward. For the last time, I don't care. Please, just stay. I need you here with me. I love you."
Edward sighed. "Okay, I'll stay but if something goes wrong, I'm leaving."
I looked at him. "No. Please Edward. I LOVE YOU. I need you. Please never leave me." I fell to the floor and cried.
Edward sat down beside
me and pulled me into his arms. "Bella. I'm sorry. I promised you
that I would never leave you. Unless of course you want me to."
I burrowed my head into his chest. "I could never want you to leave me. Please Edward, stay. Stay forever. And when you're ready make me forever. Please Edward, I'm begging you to stay."
"I'll stay. I promise and this time I mean it. I'll stay forever. I'll make you forever too."
"I promise. Just give me a little more time. Please, I just need a little more time."
"Okay. As long as you promise to never leave me."
"I promise. I'm never going to try and leave you ever again. It hurt way too much when I was walking away."
"It hurt me too. I love you, Edward Anthony Mason Cullen."
"I love you too, Isabella Marie Swan, soon to be Cullen."
I laughed. "Really? And what makes you think I'll marry you?"
"Because you love me."
"Well then. Yes. I'll
"Yes. I love you and
I want to marry you"
"Oh Bella… You have just made me the happiest man alive…well undead."
I laughed again. "You make me happy everyday. I love you and I can't wait to become your wife. You know, Alice is probably having a vision right now and is going to be so happy."
"Yeah, you know, she is going to want to help organize everything."
"And don't forget shopping….eww."
"Oh come on, it can't be that bad."
"It isn't. But it'll be okay."
"Well, it's getting pretty dark so we better get you home. I'll drive you home, drive the car back and be in your room by the time you go upstairs."
