Chapter 15: RETURNING
I was ecstatic. Like Alice type ecstatic. We had just arrived in Forks just about thirty minutes ago and now we were heading towards the house. We were returning to the very same house that I spent most of my time in while I was in Forks the first time.
We pulled up in front of the house and it was exactly the same. The white exterior. The timeless grace of it all. If I could cry, then I would be right now. I was just so glad to finally be home.
We walked into the house and it too was exactly the same. The wide open living room. The large expansive kitchen. The beautiful spiraling stairs.
I grabbed Edward's hand and ran up to the third floor. I went to the very end of the hall to the last door and threw it open. It was exactly the same. Well, except for the fact that there wasn't any furniture in the room. The walls were still gold, along with the plush carpeting.
I looked up at Edward and he was smiling. "Our room," he said as he pulled me closer and kissed the top of my head.
"Yes. Yes it is." I loved this room. I loved this house. I remembered so many good things happening here.
We both went downstairs again and helped unload the furniture. With our strength and speed we were done in about an hour.
Edward and I went back up to our room and sat down on the bed. He pulled me into his lap and kissed me passionately. When he pulled away, he said, "Welcome home, love." I smiled and kissed him again.
We arrived about a week before the school year started. Edward, Alice and I were once again posing as freshman and Emmett, Rosalie, and Jasper were sophomores.
The school was exactly the same except for the occasional new coat of paint. Edward also found a way to make sure our schedules were exactly the same. I looked at my schedule and I laughed. We had English first.
We went to park our car after we had gotten our schedules. We got out of the car and as usual everyone's gaze focused on us as we made our way into the school.
We headed towards the English building and hung our jackets up outside of the classroom. We walked in and all eyes turned towards us. All of the girls sat there dumbstruck by Edward's beauty and all of the guys were ogling at me. It repulsed me slightly but I got over it. What really repulsed me was what the teacher was thinking. I nudged Edward and he nodded. He had heard what the teacher was thinking as well. There was a small frown on his face as we approached the teacher's desk. We handed our slips to him and he signed them and then Edward pulled me to the last two empty seats in the back of the classroom.
It was like this all throughout the morning and then it was finally time for lunch. We met up with the others and found an empty table in the cafeteria. It happened to be the same table that we had sat at the last time we were in Forks.
Everyone was staring at us. The girls whispering about how gorgeous the guys were and the boys were talking about how hot we girls were. We ignored them. It was the same thing we heard every time we went to a new school.
We met some new people throughout the day; some of them nice, some of them not as nice.
Then the day was finally over. We all headed towards the car and headed home. I was excited to be back in Forks but not as excited about high school.
When we got home, Esme asked, "How was school?"
We all grunted something about it being to same as always and she laughed as everyone headed upstairs. Edward and I didn't go upstairs. Instead we went outside to do something.
"Edward?" I asked.
"Yes, love," he replied.
"I was wondering if maybe we could go see if the meadow is still there. Do you think we could go?" I asked. This morning I remembered the meadow and I've been thinking about it all day.
"Yes," he said with a smile. "Let's go."
We headed in the direction of our meadow and found it almost instantly. It was exactly the same. Apparently no one else had found it over the last sixty-five years. There were more flowers growing in it though.
Edward smiled down at me and I smiled back. He walked to the middle of the meadow and laid down and closed his eyes. I followed him and laid down next to him. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me closer. He kissed the top of my head and smiled.
"I missed this place," he said quietly.
"I did too. It was where you first showed me your vampire abilities," I said with a laugh. He laughed as well.
"And it was where we had our first kiss as well," he said looking down at me. I looked into his eyes and smiled a warm smile. I reached up and gave him what was meant to be a small kiss but he didn't let me pulled away. We deepened the kiss, and after awhile, I was on top of him and then we stopped. We were both panting and I laid my head on Edward's chest. He was stroking my hair gently. Once we had our breath under control, I lifted my head and gave Edward a small kiss on the nose.
"I love you," I said.
"I love you, too," he said, looking into my eyes. Even after all these years, I was still dazzled by his beauty.
For the rest of the day, we just laid there next to each other, just enjoying being with each other. When it started to get dark, we decided to head back to the house.
When we got back to the house, Alice asked, "Where were you two?"
I smiled up at Edward and he smiled back. "Nowhere," we said together. She shrugged and walked back to Jasper, who was sitting on the couch.
Edward and I went up to our room and laid down on the bed next to each other. As we laid there, I was thinking about what had happened over the past sixty-something years. I had met the love of my existence. I had escaped sadistic vampire after sadistic vampire. I had married my love and he had changed me into a vampire so we could spend eternity together. We had faced off against the Volturi multiple times and won. We have moved all along the north of this continent. And now I was back where it all began. And I never wanted to leave.
"What are you thinking about, love?" Edward asked me after a bit.
"I was just thinking about what we've been through together and how we're back to were it all started," I said.
"Yes, we are," he said with a laugh. "And I couldn't be happier."
"Me either," I said, smiling up at my angel. He smiled back at me and then he leaned down to give me a kiss.
When he pulled back, I said, "Promise me that when we leave again, and I know we will, that we will come back eventually."
"I promise," he said, sincerity ringing in his voice. I smiled as he leaned down again to seal the promise with a kiss.
