I wasn't sure how long I sat there attempting to remove whatever had gotten into my eye. We were standing at the restaurant waited to be seated. Charlie and Anna had decided to take Emmett and Rose out for dinner since they would be leaving in the morning. Edward and I were invited as well. I couldn't stop fidgeting I hated waiting. I swear sometimes I was such an inpatient person. Edward was standing next to me, his hand resting on my lower back.
Things had had gotten better with him the last few days. It was almost like nothing had ever happened. But I knew it would take longer for those wounds to fully heal. I let out a sigh and looked up at the clock on the wall. We had been waiting 17 minutes. I didn't understand why we couldn't stay home. I would've made dinner. I actually missed making dinner. Anna had taken over that duty. Even though Charlie had said he would think before asking her to actually move in. I couldn't help but notice how her belongings began to appear more frequently in the house.
Edward leaned in and pressed a kiss on the top of my head, "Darling you know being inpatient gets you no where"
"I know that!" I groaned and looked up at him, "I'm sorry. I'm just really hungry. Your sister kept me out shopping all day for end of summer slash beginning of school year clothes"
"Why didn't you tell her you just didn't want to go?"
I looked at him like he had two heads or something, "You do realize we are talking about your sister.." I sighed and looked at the clock again, "besides she's been doing with Jasper leaving and now Rose and Emmett are leaving. All she has left is us"
Edward let out a small groan and buried his face into my hear, "Do you realize what that means? She's going to be our third wheel for the whole school year.."
"Stupid pixie" I muttered under my breath.
"Swan table for 6" someone announced.
"YES!" I yelled and dragged Edward over to the woman waving 6 menus. 6 menus that held all different foods. I was starving.
Dinner started off without a hitch. We all chatted about the upcoming year, Rose's roommate in Seattle. Emmett's decisions on sports teams. If Edward was going to play lacrosse this year. Then all of a sudden everyone got very quiet as we noticed a silent conversation going on between my father and Anna. She kept blushing and nudging him in the arm telling him to 'do it'. I had no idea what they were referring too, but apparently we weren't going to have to wait long.
"Okay so I know this is suppose to be your goodbye dinner Emmett but Anna and I have some very good news that we can't keep contained anymore" Charlie chuckled. He was always so happy now a days.
"What's going on dad?" Emmett asked not bothering to swallow the food in his mouth before speaking.
"Emmett! Gross.. Swallow before you speak" Rose smacked him lightly on the back of the head and rolled her eyes. She smiled sweetly and turned to look at Charlie and Anna, "Yes Charlie?"
"I've asked Anna to marry me…"
My eyes went wide, actually I was pretty sure all 4 teenagers at the table's eyes went wide, "You what?"
"And I've accepted!" Anna yelled happily and showed off her ring that I had not even noticed was there before. "And Bella I know things have finally started getting better between us.. But I want you to be my maid of honor!"
"I.. uh…" I turned and looked at Edward. He apparently looked speechless as well. "um…"
Rose noticing my lack of words decided to interfere, "So when did he ask you!?" excitement in her voice as she grabbed Anna's hand to look at the ring.
I stayed completely silent for the rest of dinner; I had no idea what to say. When we climbed into the car Edward was unsure if he should start driving or ask me if I was okay. I could see him debating with himself. Every few seconds he would turn and look at me, open his mouth, but no words would come out. Then he would just turn again and face the front of the car. Finally after doing this four times he started the car and drove us toward my house.
"You know, you can say something" I sighed as I leaned my head against the passenger side window and stared out at the passing trees.
"I wasn't sure if you wanted me to say anything.." he kept his eyes on the road, "You didn't say a single word the rest of dinner"
"I don't get it; I thought you were actually starting to get along with Anna"
I sat up and turned to look at him, "yeah starting to get along with her.. But as his girlfriend! Not as his future wife! Do you realize how fast this is..? I mean like who decides they want to marry someone that soon an-"
"I knew I wanted to marry you not too long af-"
I cut him off just let he had done to me moments before, "What?" my eyes went wide. Did Edward just say he wanted to marry me? I must be hearing things.
Edward reached over and took my hand in his, "Isabella, I do want to marry you.. Not right this very second but in the future. As long as you'll still want to be with me"
I… uh.." I slumped back into my seat and let out a sigh, "Today is too much" I turned my head to look at him a small smile on my face, "I do love you though. You know that right?"
He shot me a crooked grin, "Well I've had my doubts.. But I'm pretty sure I know that now"

It had been a week since my brother and Rosalie had left to go to school. And I had to admit it was weird not having him around. Now that Charlie and Anna were engaged to them it only logical for her to move in. Sure I had come to like her, but those feelings were put on hold with the sudden engagement. I tried not to focus on that, instead I focused on my upcoming senior year. Now with Jasper gone Alice was how can I say this nicely? Up my butt 24/7. Don't get me wrong, I love her, and she's one of my best friends. But jeez, she was giving me no alone time with Edward at all. And he was definitely starting to get annoyed.
It didn't help that James and Victoria were still staying with them. As Alice would tell me, Victoria was hard to get along with. She had her moments of being pleasant, but otherwise she was stuck up to no end. And James was just crude to no end. The few times I had hung out with them since their arrival was the worst experience ever.
We all decided to go to a movie one night, and the whole time James yelled at the screen as well as other people in the movies. I was shocked that this guy was supposed to be a couple years older than us. Like really? Did he have to act like an immature brat? He course thought it was funny to make rude and almost sexual comments to me. Edward did not find it funny one bit and was ready to punch James in the face.
I had gotten suckered in not only into a day of shopping for school clothes, but also a girl's day of doing it. So I ended up going to the mall with Alice, Esme, Anna and Victoria. The only thing I was grateful about was that Victoria always seemed very mellow and almost nice when Esme was around. Anna thought it be a nice day for us to bond since I had been very distant since the engagement announcement. I didn't know what she wanted me to say. Yeah I finally have accepted you Anna but now you are moving in and marrying my dad. It's all a little fast if you ask me.
Alice had dragged Victoria and I to Victoria Secret apparently more for me then her. She wanted to pick me out cute matching bra and panties set to wear in front of Edward. I had confided in her that we had yet to be intimate besides kissing since he had returned. I mean I understood why, I broke his trust in a way.
"Alice really this is unnecessary, I am perfect fine with the sets I have now"
"Nonsense Bella!" Alice exclaimed as she held two different sets in her hands, "Edward has seen them all. Besides he told Jasper once that he loved you in midnight blues…"
"He did?" I raised my eyebrow, "Does that not bother you that Edward talks to your brother about our sex life?"
She shook his head, "Not at all.. I mean who else is he going to talk to? Emmett, that wouldn't work out very well"
"I guess so.." I took the midnight blue bra and panties set out of her hand and looked it over. I had to admit it wasn't too much, "Do you think he'll like it?"
"Who Edward?" Victoria asked as she walked over and leaned on the wall next to where I was standing, "You need to do a lot more if you expect Edward to get into bed with you"
"Victoria that was rude!" Alice glared at her cousin's boyfriend, "Besides Edward loves having sex with Bella"
"Okay awkward" I muttered under my breath, "I'm going to go buy this…." I walked off toward the register leaving Victoria and Alice in a glaring match. So much for her being on her best behavior today. After I bought my stuff we headed to the food court to meet up with Esme and Anna to have some lunch. When we approached the table I noticed they were in animated conversation and both were laughing. I knew Anna wasn't a bad person, especially after she was there for me with the whole Edward thing. But to get use to her as my stepmother? I mean I got use to Phil. But they took their time.
Esme stopped laughing and smiled at us as we sat down, "Did you girls get anything good?"
"Bella got this really cute bra and panties set.. Edward is going to love it" Alice giggled.
"Alice!" I groaned and buried my head in my arms.
"What?" she asked innocently, "Mom knows you and Edward have sex… oh did Anna not?"
"Don't worry Bella, I won't tell your father"
I smiled at her, "Thank you"
"Whatever it's only sex. No big deal" Victoria grumbled as she crossed her arms across her chest. Ah today needed to be over soon or I was going to throw myself down an escalator.

When I walked into the door with Anna around 8 that night all I wanted to do was draw myself a nice bath and relax with a book. But I ended up being surprised when I found my dad and Edward playing one of Emmett's video games in the living room. They were both laughing and having a good time and I couldn't help but smile. I always knew Charlie liked Edward, but I never really got to see them bond that much.
"Hey.." I said with a smirk as I came into the room and leaned on the wall.
"Hey" Edward smiled up at me, completely forgetting about the game, "How was shopping?"
"A nightmare" I chuckled as I watched Anna walk in and sit on the arm of the couch next to my father, "Well Victoria at least"
Anna smirked at me as she chuckled herself, "That girl is quite… something"
"Yeah she sure is" Edward said rolling his eyes as he put the remote down and came over to me pulling me into his arms. He pressed a kiss against my forehead and sighed, "I missed you"
I brought my fingers up to push the hair out of his eyes, "I've missed you too"
"Well me and Anna are going to go get some dinner and probably stop by and see some friends. I'm not sure what time we'll be home" Charlie said as he brought himself to his feet, "you kids behave yourselves"
"We always do Charlie" Edward chuckled as he kissed my cheek, "You guys have fun"
"We will.." Anna said with a wink towards me as she dragged my father out of the room.
As soon as we heard the car pull out of the driveway Edward and I darted to my room. I knew where I wanted tonight to go, but I wasn't sure that he felt the same. He pounced onto my bed and positioned himself against my pillows as I placed the shopping bags of what I had bought in the corner of the room. But I decided to hold on to the Victoria Secret bag. "um I'm going to be right back"
He raised his eyebrow as he brought his hands behind his head, "Okay, do you need my help with anything?"
I shook my head, "No just sit back and relax.." I gave him a quick wink and headed out of the room and went to the bathroom. I shed all my clothes and slipped into the new bra and panties then threw a bathrobe over myself. I wasn't sure why I was so nervous, it wasn't our first time. Well it was our first time in a while.
As soon as I walked into the room Edward's eyes widened, "Hey pretty girl" he said with a smile as he sat up and held his arms out so I could come to him. I slid into his arms and let out a sigh. It just felt like home when I was in his arms, "So what is under the bathroom?" I knew he was smirking even if I couldn't see his face.
"Oh I don't know.. Why don't you open it and take a look"
He placed his finger under my chin and lifted so he could capture my lips in a kiss. The kiss wasn't like the others we had experienced lately. This one was full of want, desire, lust.. He repositioned us so I was pinned under him as his hand began to run up my bare thigh. "God I've missed the feel of your skin" he whispered in between our kisses. He slowly brought his hand up to loosen the tie of my bathrobe and pushed it to the side. Revealing me in my present for him.
He groaned and bit his lip, "I… oh god Bella"
"What is it Edward?" I asked coyly.
"You don't understand how much I want you right now"
"Oh really?" I grinded against his erection that pressed right against my heated core, "Could've fooled me"
He growled playfully and began to nip my neck, "I need to be inside you.. I need to feel you around my dick"
I couldn't help but giggle inside at Edward saying that word. It was almost foreign to hear him speak dirty, but it was quite hot. "Then be inside of me Edward.. Please"
That was all it took and it minutes our clothes were fully shed and he was burying himself inside of me. I arched my back and wrapped my legs around him. "God" he hissed through his teeth.
The pace started off slow, but soon enough it picked up. "Faster.. Oh god Edward Faster please!"
Being with Edward in any way, shape or form was complete heaven. And I would never, I swear never do anything to almost lose him again.
