Chapter 1: Surprise
So, this is the sequel to Princess Bella. I have to say that you have to read that one first, because other wise you have no idea what happened in the past.
After this is said, I want to thank everyone who encouraged me to write a sequel.
This is for you!
"Hmm…" I groaned. I was slowly waking up from a very good dream, and I wasn't glad that I wasn't able to finish it.
But something was distracting me. And in a very good way too. Almost as good as the dream.
I giggled at the tickling feeling of someone's breath in my neck.
I opened my eyes, looking in the emerald ones next to me, and smiled.
"Hi…" I whispered, smiling.
"Good morning, my angel. I'm sorry to wake you, but it's our last day together. I want to spend it in the best way as possible…" He said with his velvet voice, wich was covered with sadness.
"Edward, I don't want to miss you for so long…" I sighed.
Yes, this was our last day together. Tomorrow I would be kidnapped by Alice and Rosalie for my bachelorette party, and the day after that we were going to recover from our hangovers. The day after that Edward and I had our wedding. I wouldn't see Edward for three days, wich was very long since we spent every day together for the last three months. We were completely used to each other's presence, and it would be very hard to be without each other.
"I know, love. I don't want to miss you either. But Emmett and Rose arranged our bachelor parties a month ago. We can't leave them that way."
I sighed deeply, knowing that he was right.
"I know, but I still want to."
He smiled his crooked smile.
"I'm focussing on the days after our wedding, when we're going on that cruise you wanted for so long. We have two weeks together then… I can't wait!" He said playfully, before placing a kiss in my neck.
"But we aren't alone, remember? Everyone is coming with us!" I replied, getting a bit angry that we agreed to take our friends with us.
"Believe me, I will find a way." He said, kissing my cheekbone.
I giggled, and moved my head to his chest.
"I can't wait either…"
After that, I fell asleep again, with Edward's arms around me.
I woke up because someone knocked on the door.
"Princess?" I heard a very familiar voice.
I sat up, looking at Edward beside me, and smiled.
"I'm coming, but please be quiet. I don't want to wake him." I whispered to Mandy, my personal assistant and one of my best friends.
I tried to make her call me just Bella, but she never did. Even though we trusted each other completely, even though we told each other our secrets, she refused to call me by name instead of Your Highness or Princess.
"Sure. Come with me, please."
I followed her silently, to make sure I didn't make any sound that could wake Edward.
I looked at him again for the last time. My personal angel. When he slept he was the most beautiful creature on Earth. And of course, he still was when he was awake,
I closed the door, and followed Mandy to my dressing room.
"Okay, why did you wake me? It's only…" I searched for a clock to see what time it was.
"Oh, it's 11.30. Sorry, it is time to wake up. Can you let Josh wake Edward?"
"Sure, Your Highness. I chose your outfit for today, after a call from Alice. She'll arrive here at 4 pm, so be sure to be back then. Now, I'll call Anna to let her dress you."
"Thank you, Mandy. Can you bring me a cup of coffee?" I said.
She nodded, and left.
Anna came, and I dressed myself as quickly as possible I could with her help, and put my hair in a simple ponytail. That got me a glare from her, but she didn't say anything.
If Alice would see me now, she would kill me.
I smiled when I saw Edward waiting for me outside my dressing room, completely dressed but still a bit sleepy.
"You know, waking up next to you makes the morning a lot better." He said, before walking over to kiss me.
"I know. I love waking up next to you too. But I didn't want to wake you."
"Maybe you should have checked the time then, before you make the decision to let me sleep. I would rather wake up with a kiss from you." He replied, smiling at me.
"I'll try to remember that for the next time." I said, smiling back.
He kissed me, leaving me dazzled when he pulled back.
"I look forward to the day you stop dazzling me with your kisses. It's rather annoying to lose every coherent thought with just one, simple kiss." I stated.
Edward looked shocked.
"I hope that won't happen! I absolutely love to dazzle you like you dazzle me!"
I blushed. "I dazzle you?"
"Yes, you know that."
I shook my head. "No, I didn't know that. But I'll keep that in mind."
"You don't see yourself the way I see you. You're beautiful." He said.
"Okay, that's enough love statements for today! We need to get you some breakfast. Mr Cullen, the thing you asked for will be ready at 12." Mandy said from behind us.
"What thing?" I asked, astounded that Edward had arranged something behind my back while we had been together all the time for the last three months.
"You'll see, love. Don't worry too much, you'll like it!"
"Edward! You know I don't like surprises!"
He just smiled. "I know. But I know you'll like it. Stop worrying, it wasn't even my idea."
"It's not the time to talk about this! I'll get you a basket with some food to take with you, but you have to hurry now. Mr Cullen, take care of the Princess, please!" Mandy ordered, pushing us in the direction of the exit.
But I froze, and didn't work with them. They stopped trying and looked at me.
"Edward. What. Are. We. Going. To. Do?" I said menacingly, earning a shocked face from both Edward and Mandy.
"Bella, love. It's a surprise! I can't tell you!"
"I don't want surprises on our last day together!" I yelled at him.
Mandy stepped back, and walked away with a smile on her face.
"Good luck, Mr Cullen!" She mumbled, shaking her head.
If I wasn't wrong, and probably I wasn't, she thought this was very amusing. Well, it was not.
"Bella, please don't ruin this for me. You already ruined my plans this morning by falling asleep again after I woke you! I had special plans for today, and I don't want you to know what it is untill…"
"Fine! Let's go then!" I said, walking away angrily.
I wasn't really angry, I just pretended to be. A guilty feeling Edward was so cute. Irresistable. How could I ever resist that?
"Bella, please. I don't mean it that way. I know you don't like surprises, but you'll like this one! Please don't act that way!" He started pleading.
Oh, for God's sake! He was already making me weak in the knees. I knew I would give in immediately.
One of the maids opened the door for us, and I saw the limousine in front of the palace.
Before we stepped in, I turned and kissed Edward. When he wanted to pull me closer, I stepped away and smiled.
"I love you, Edward. I was just joking…"
His eyes turned from worried to very soft.
"I love you too, Bella."
So, this was just the first chapter. It's a bit boring, I know, and I'll make that up to you with the next chapter, wich will contain what surprise Edward has for Bella!
I don't know when that will be up. I wasn't planning on doing a sequel so fast, but I was inspirated so I decided to do this anyway. All for you, guys!
Tell me what you think ;)
