Author's Note: Yup. Last Chapter. You all know where it goes from here. (Its all in Eclipse! lol) I don't need to rewrite something already so well written. :) Review please. And if you guys have any ideas/requests, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE!


I didn't even feel the bed sink.

The only reason why I awoke was the fact that I felt his icy fingers wrap around me. I instantly turned toward him and tucked my head on his shoulder. I knew he would be smiling. I didn't know how long I had been asleep, but it had been too long being away from him.

"Bella." He sighed, breathing in my scent, kissing my forehead and hair.

"What did you guys decide upon?"

"Well…" He sighed, and looked down at me. "I won't fight. Just like…you asked."

I felt horrible when he said that. I knew that he had wanted to fight. I knew that I was acting childish, but…I just didn't want to lose him.

He was my life.

He was my soul.

I couldn't live without him.

"I'm sorry." I whispered, trying to push my guilty tears back—keeping them inside.

"Bella." He laughed, shaking his head. "It's alright. Everything is planned."

"What if they get hurt?"

He let out a breath of air. "Nothing will happen to them. You saw how well prepared they are. I would be more afraid for the new borns, but not for our family."

'Our family.'

Those words brought a smile to my face. I was going to become a Cullen.

"Just sleep, Bella. Sleep and trust in me. Nothing will happen. No more nights of worry." I nodded, yawning and wrapping my arms tightly around him.

I didn't want to wake up to an empty bed again.

I wanted him to be right there.

I wanted him beside me always.

…we just had to get past these nights of worry…

These nights of New Borns, Victoria… and even then, Charlie.
