Chapter 1: Wedding Plans: Bella POV
I awoke to the angel's arms surrounding me. He had his head on my shoulder and I was curled into his chest. I could tell he was in his 'rest'. The best a vampire could do for sleep. I didn't want to make him come out of it, so I didn't move an inch. I began to think about the night before.
"Oh, Bella!" Alice caught me as I tripped over my feet. "I hope you don't plan on doing that during the wedding." I ignored her comment and looked in the mirror. The dress she had chosen had the perfect lace design for my way-early 20th century vampire. He was bound to love it.
It was my final fitting. My dad, Charlie, had just had his and he looked mighty handsome in a tux. Alice was walking around me making sure the dress fit, which it did, perfectly.
"I can't wait to see Edward's face when he sees you in this," Alice whispered to me.
"Me neither." I said softly.
Alice helped me out of the dress and the death-trap components she calls, 'high heels'. As I was getting my stuff ready to get a shower Alice froze.
"What did you see?" I asked quietly, pulling her from her trance.
"Edward will be here in fifteen minutes." I smiled and bit my lip. Fifteen minutes was short, but also way too long to hear my angel's voice and be wrapped in his cold embrace. "If you want," Alice began, "Take this suggestion: get your human moment now so you have more time together. I got to get the dress out of here." Alice gave me a huge hug, trying not to crush my bones though. "See you bright and early tomorrow!" Alice sang and skipped her way down the front steps and out of the house. Yay, fun! I was to report to Alice by eight am. The thought of getting up that early made me shiver. I went and began my 'human moment'.
I was re-making my bed.
Last night I had another nightmare about Jacob. I couldn't get the fact that I made him run away out of my mind. It was my entire fault. I woke up in Edward's arms and he looked at me with a sad expression and whispered that I had screamed. I hated doing that to him. To make up I kissed him on the lips and snuggled into his chest.
I was remaking the bed and the window was open, as always, as I waited for the love of my life to get here. As I crossed to the other side of the bed, with my back to the window, I felt his cold, strong arms encircling me.
He kissed my neck. "I missed you today," he whispered. He and his brothers had gone hunting this morning. He told me it would only be for a day since he was anxious and always wanted to be near me.
"I missed you too." I spun around, still in his arms and wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him on the lips. We kissed for almost a minute before he gently pushed me away. "Only a few more days and you're never doing that again!" I whispered. Edward smiled my favorite crooked smile and kissed me softly on the lips.
"Already done the human moment?" He asked softly, trailing his lips across my neck.
"Y-y-yes." I stammered. Stupid freaking vampire dazzling effects. Edward swooped me up in one arm and pushed the covers back with the others. He gently lay me down and put the covers back. He lay on the bed and pulled me closer. I snuggled into his chest.
"I love you," he whispered, kissing my head, "All my un-beating heart is filled with love for you."
"I love you too." I leaned up and kissed him on the lips. His arms were around me protectively and lovingly. He began to hum my lullaby while playing with my hair. I drifted into the clouds, with my angel by my side.
"Love?" Edward whispered to me. I looked up and he kissed me softly. "If we are going to make it to Alice's on time, you need to get up, my angel."
I groaned. Why, oh why, did she do this early thing to me? Edward kissed me softly again. "Charlie?" I asked, half asleep.
"Left an hour ago." He kissed my forehead. I smiled and, once more, gently kissed him on the lips and went to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror and the shock hit me as I pulled another sheet off of my day-by-day calendar.
I was marrying Edward in one day. Tomorrow.
