Hey Twilight'ers! Here it is—the epilogue. I can't believe it's over… because this is the first chapter story I've actually finished!
I have a new Twilight story, If I Fell, up, so if you're interested, it's posted.
Thank you again, guys, for all of the support. You guys are looove!
Disclaimer: Oh gosh… it's the last Alice disclaimer! If you haven't figured out that I don't own Twilight, you are a little slow…
"Bella! Please, please, please! Your wedding's in two days. Just let me give you a facial, at least!" I yelled through the door to my future sister. "Please!"
I saw the door open up tentatively. "Just a facial?" said Bella's scared voice.
"Honestly, Bella, you're more scared of a facial than a house full of vampires. You are messed up." I laughed at her and pushed open the door.
"That's what I've always said," said Edward, coming up behind, "but I prefer that she's not scared of us. She'll stay with me then." He ruffled my hair and pushed past me.
"Hey, meanie," I yelled at him, "I believe I was going in there first!" Edward simply laughed at me and grabbed Bella. He dipped her back and planted a big kiss on her lips, and I could hear her heart speed up.
"Okay, I'm leaving," I said, rolling my eyes. "But I'm coming back in half an hour, and you better be gone, Edward, or you are dead meat."
"I highly doubt the possibility of that," he said, closing the door in my face. I scoffed, but then went off to find Jasper. He was sitting in the living room, intensely into a car-racing video game with Emmett. Carlisle was at work, Esme was redoing a room that would serve as a bride's room for Bella in two days, and Rosalie was off adding some unnecessary additions to her car.
"Hey Jasper," I said to him quietly, sitting behind him on the back of the couch. I placed a hand on his shoulder. This got his attention. He looked up at me and smiled, and obviously forgot about his game, because his car crashed into a brick wall.
"Ha, yes!" exclaimed Emmett as his virtual car passed the finish line. "Thanks for distracting him, Alice! That game had been going on for two hours!"
Jasper narrowed his eyes at Emmett. Suddenly, Emmett started breathing heavily and hyperventilating. "Not fair, Jasper!" he cried. "Stop messing with my emotions!"
I giggled and grabbed Jasper's hand, pulling him away and up to our room.
"I've missed you," I cooed to him as we sat down on the soft leather couch in our room. "It's been two hours since I've really seen you.
"Oh, but it felt more like eternity, didn't it?" he asked with a smile.
"No," I replied. "Because eternity is what I get to spend with you." He smiled at me and pulled me so I was lying my head on his chest. "We've got thirty minutes before I will be forcing Edward to surrender Bella to me," I told him. "What do you want to do?"
"Oh, I've got a few ideas," he said seductively, tracing his contour of my stomach through my shirt.
"We could do that," I replied, "but how about we just cuddle?"
"That's good, too," replied Jasper. We sat there in silence, listening to the soft rain pounding gently on the windows.
"What are you thinking about?" I asked him, breaking the very comfortable silence between us.
"I was just thinking about what would have happened to me if I never found you," he told me. I sat in silence, not quite sure how to respond. "I honestly don't even like what I might have been. When I saw you in that diner, it was the first time I had ever felt hope. You know how this life is such a struggle for me, but you make it worth all of the pain I have to go through. You make this life worth living."
"Jasper, I would probably be as bad as Victoria if you weren't here," I responded, butterflies filling my non-existent stomach. "Honestly. You make my life worth living as well." I gave him a small kiss on the lips. "Well, that and the constant makeovers I'll get to give Bella's when Edward turns her. That makes it worth it, too." Jasper laughed and lay with me, holding me the entire time.
The time passed quickly. Soon, I looked at the clock and realized that thirty minutes was up.
"Sorry, love," I told Jasper, "but I need to reclaim my sister."
He rolled his eyes and reluctantly let me go. "Alright," he said, "but unless you want to have Edward as a sworn enemy, you need to leave her in one piece."
"I'll try," I responded. I walked over to the doorway, but then turned around before leaving the room.
"Really, Jasper," I said, "thank you. For everything."
He smiled, and my still heart fluttered.
Ah! It's over. I'm pretty sad. Thanks again for all the support I've been given. I love you all!
