I know you all hate me right now for abandoning this story for so long. The problem was that I ran out of ideas. In the beginning all I wanted to do was show you guys my view on how Edward should have proposed, just one little scene. SO that's what I am going to do. The following writing is how I think the proposal should have occurred, plain and simple.
"Where are we going?" she asked for the fifth time.
"It's a surprise remember?" I whispered. Bella and I were in the middle of the forest and she was blindfolded. I watched as her lips turned into an adorable scowl. I pulled her into my arms, bridal style, and she yelped in surprised.
"Do you trust me?" I asked.
She sighed in defeat, "of course I trust you." With that I took off running. She nuzzled her head into my chest and I pulled her closer to me as I ran. Her heartbeat picked up which in turn intensified her scent. I ignored the burning in my throat.
Finally I came to a stop and placed her gently down on the ground. I untied the blindfold.
She gazed around, her eyes adjusting to the darkness with the help of the full moon.
"Edward, you could have told me you were taking me to our meadow. It isn't that big of a….," but then she trailed off as her eyes adjusted even further. I heard her gasp. I was filled with joy as her face radiate her happiness.
"It's beautiful Edward." I tore my gaze away from her to make sure everything was as I had left it. Small candles were placed around the clearing encircling a blanket on the ground. White rose petals were scattered around the blanket as well and Clair de Lune was playing softly in the background.
"It's not as beautiful as you my dear," I said. I took her hand in mine and gazed at her lovingly. The moonlight was lighting up her face so her eyes were sparkling before mine. She blushed slightly as I grazed my hand along her cheek. I pulled her slowly towards the blanket and when we reached it I sat her down softly.
As we sat I continued to watch her. I had been so nervous before, but now that she sat before me I knew that what I was about to do would be the most natural thing I would ever have to do. I took her hands into mine and she gazed at me, her eyes questioning.
"Bella, the day I met you I knew you were going to change my life forever. I knew that I would never be able to go back to my false interpretation of happiness." Her blush from before returned as I continued.
"It didn't take me long to realize that I didn't want my life to go back to the way it was. The minute I realized that I could control my thirst around you, in that second I knew that I would never leave your side. Of course I then made the mistake of thinking I should leave you, but I won't go into that." By this point Bella had tears in her eyes.
"You were so much stronger than me then, and you are so much stronger than me now. You risk everything to be with me, while I risk nothing but your safety. You trust me with your life time and time again and I love you for that."
"Bella I love how human you make me feel. I love how you make me laugh just by being yourself. I love how unselfish you are and I love how often you blushed. And I love how well you fit in with my family. But most of all, I love you because you love me despite of the monster I am." She started to protest but I quickly put my hand to her mouth.
"Bella, you make me feel like there is a chance for us out there. You make me think that maybe there is a heaven for us."
"Us?" She whispered.
I smiled. Then I shifted so I was on one knee and Bella gasped before me.
"Yes, Bella, us. I want to make you a vampire Bella because you belong with me forever. I never want us to be parted again no matter how long we exist for. I want to make you a vampire Bella, and I want you to be my wife." With that I pulled out my mother's wedding ring that had been residing in my pocket.
"Bella will you be my wife?" I whispered. It didn't take her long before she was nodding repeatedly, tears streaming down her face.
"Yes. Yes a million times!" She said. I pulled her into my embrace and slipped the ring onto her finger.
"Forever," I whispered.
" Forever." She replied.
