Forever

This is an alternate ending to everyone's favorite book, Twilight, and everything after is my version of the second book, New Moon.

I gazed up at the midnight sky, the stars twinkling and a light in front of the backdrop of the dark sky. Edward squeezed my hand. I looked at him, and his expression looked painful. "Bella, I'm sorry. I don't know if I can really do it. I'm just too weak." Edward's golden eyes blazed with intensity. I shook my head. He's not weak. He bit me once when James, I shuddered when I thought of that name, bit me in the ballet studio, and he stopped then. "Edward, you're not weak. You bit me when James bit me, and I'm fine." He scowled. "Your defintion of fine must be crutches and an ankle cast. Bella, you're not fine. You're hurt, and it's my entire fault. I'll never forgive myself for putting you in harms way, ever." Edward's words hit my soul, and I felt as if the tears were going to come prematurely. I swallowed hard.

"Edward don't you love me? I'm going to die one day, that's obvious. But you're never going to die. You're never going to past the age of seventeen. You're just going to stay frozen in a teenagers body your whole life, while I age and age, and eventually, I'm going to die." The last sentence stung me, but Edward looked even more hurt. A small tear trickled from my eye. I was crying because I was doomed to die, and even though I'm probably going to spend every mintute up until that moment comes with Edward, I don't want to leave him.

"Bella, is this what you really want?" Edward asked me suddenly. I nodded my head. "Yes. I don't ever want to leave you." I sniffled and wiped a tear that escaped from my eye. Edward sighed. "You know that if I change you now, you'll be forever seventeen, never again to live a normal, human life? Won't you miss going to sleep at night, and waking up in the morning, and eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner?" How can he compare eating meals to spending every waking moment with him? I shook my head rapidly. "I don't care about those things. I care about you, and only you. And if changing me into a vampire is the only way I can spend all eternity with you, then so be it!" Edward smiled softly. "Are you sure?" He whispered. I nodded. "Positive." He lightly brushed his hand against my cheek, and slowly leaned down, closer and closer to my neck. Edward kissed my neck softly, and then he firmly bit down.
