Okay...like i said...i'm not dead. I told you that i would eventually get on with this story...we're on break now so i have more time on my hands to write. I guess this is the last chapter of the story, i'm thinking, about writing a sequel to this. If you'd like a sequel then just lemme know. I may be able to put a story together. PEACE...R&R!
I had a decision to make. To change Bella, or to leave her human. To condemn her to an eternal night, or to let her grow old and die away. What was more unbearable? I know what Bella wants. She wants to be changed, I know that. But I just don't know what to do. I'm at a loss for what to do. It should be simple shouldn't it? It shouldn't be this hard. I am such a selfish creature. Why can't I just let Bella have what she wants? Don't I want that too? I do. I want Bella forever. I want her to be mine, as long as we both shall exist. She wants that too. But I don't want Bella to lose all her human moments. She is so afraid of getting older. I understand that it isn't a superficial thing. Yet, Bella doesn't get that I will always think that she is the most beautiful thing in the world.
I watched my angel sleeping in my arms. She clung to me. As if I would go anywhere. I gazed at her pouted, slightly parted lips; I could feel her warm breath tickling my chest. She looked a great deal more peaceful than she had earlier. I tightened my arms around her. She snuggled deeper into my chest. I sighed. Okay, it's now, or never…I have to do this, before I lose my nerve.
I whispered, "Bella?" she stirred slightly. "Bella?" She tucked her head further into my chest. I chuckled. I lifted her face to mine. I traced her lips with my fingertip. Then I leaned down and brushed my lips to her forehead, then her nose. I kept tracing her face with my finger. "Bella?"
"Hmmm?" Her eyes were still closed.
"Wake up" She slightly frowned. Her forehead creased.
"Mm-mm" I smiled. I leaned and ever so softly pressed my lips to hers. I felt her eyelashes brush against my face. When I pulled back she looked at me quizzically. "What?" She whispered hoarsely.
"I-I have something to ask you" She looked confused.
"What is the one thing you want most?" Her eyes widened.
"Us to be together…forever" I nodded.
"If I change you, will—will you give me something in return?" She gave a slight gasp.
"Of course!" She said a little too loud. "What do you want?" She sat up. I followed suit. I took her hand in mine. I looked at out hands for a few minutes. Then I looked up at her.
"W-will you marry me?" I whispered. Bella's eyes grew wide, and tears welled in her eyes. She grinned. Then her lips came crashing into mine. I smiled into the kiss. "Is that a yes?" Smiled.
"That's definitely a yes" A surge of joy shot through my heart. I thought that for a second my heart had started to beat again. It felt as if it was going to burst out of my chest. I smiled.
We laid back down again, my fiancé in my arms. I was perfectly at piece right now. I kissed Bella softly.
"Thank you" I whispered into her hair.
"Loving me," I laughed.
"Edward, you have no idea how easy it is to love you, are the reason I get up in the morning. The one fact that I live for, you love me" I could her the smile in her voice.
"I love you, always and forever" I kissed the top of her head.
"I love you too Romeo" She took my hand and held it in hers.
Bella fell back asleep after some time. Due to my humming of her lullaby I'm guessing. There were many details that we still had to work out, but at least there was one problem solved tonight. Our nightmare was over, forever.
Yes i know, i'm a sucker for happy endings. I'm a hardcore BxE writer and reader so, naturally they'd end up together. Sorry if you don't like that. I'm attempting to branch out in my writing, but one thing will never change...BXE!!! hoped you liked the story. REVIEW!!!!
