Thanks for sticking out for this short blurb guys… Purely fluff… A short 1,500 words but should provide closure… Surprise coming in the authors note so don't get angry with me for the way I've ended it.
You Found Me
Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight
What I want you've got
But it might be hard to handle
Like the flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame yeah yeah
What I got – full stock of thoughts and dreams that scatter
And you pull them all together
And how I can't explain oh yea
Well well you
You make my dreams come true
Well well well you
Oh yeah you make my dreams come true
On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
When you're messin' with a dreamer
I can laugh it in the face
Twist and show my way out
And wrap yourself around me
'Cause I ain't the way you found me
And I'll never be the same
Hmmm hmmm You make my dreams come true
Well well well you
Oh you make my dreams come true
Listen to this
I'm down on my daydream
All that sleepwalk should be over by now
Well you, hell yeah, you make my dreams come true
I've been waiting for, waiting for you girl
Oh yeah you make my dreams come true
Me you, me and you
I've been waiting for waiting for you girl
All my life
You make my dreams come true
Whoa whoa I've been waiting for, waiting for, waiting
for waiting for waiting
for waiting for waiting for
I've been waiting for you girl
"You Make My Dreams Come True," Hall and Oates
For two hours he had been watching her sleep next to him, amazed that in less than forty eight hours, she'd be walking down an aisle towards him, ready to give herself to him forever. Because this time, it would be just that, forever. It was impossible for him to imagine his life without her now, knowing full well that if they were to be separated again that he would never make it through it again.
His hand brushed the curves of her body before settling on her stomach, now harder than it had been nearly four months ago. Per her request, they kept the news of the baby a secret but rushed the wedding so they could announce it when they came back from their honeymoon. He knew that the sole reason she wished to keep it quiet was because her fear that she would lose it in the first trimester. It was the hardest month of his life; living in the constant fear that something could happen, but now, two months later, she was nearly in the clear, the doctor no longer concerned about her losing the child invitro. That wasn't to say that there couldn't be complications, but both refused to think negatively about it.
The soft knock on the door caused him to scowl, knowing full well it was his sister ready to pry his soon to be wife from the warm bed and into the chaos of the last day before the wedding. He wanted nothing more than to keep her in bed with him, naked, and enjoy the day, enjoy their day. It was bad enough knowing that he would have to share her with their guests the following day, was it not fair that he have just one more with her?
He carefully extracted himself from her embrace, pulling the covers up to cover her naked body and the small bump that was barely visible to anyone but the two of them. His boxers had been cast on the floor and he fumbled around before finding them and pulling them on just as the door swung open with a gusto he believed was unnecessary.
"She's still sleeping!" Alice, eyes wide, stated as she took in the surroundings of the messy room. "She has appointments to get to! Final dress fittings and hair appointments and you're letting her sleep!"
"Alice." His voice was a warning. He knew better than anyone how badly her body needed the rest. The last thing he wanted was for her to get over excited, to get stressed and for that stress to harm their child. "A few extra minutes of sleep never hurt anyone."
"Easy for you to say! You don't have to accomplish as much as we do today!"
Taking a deep breath, he found his fingers pinching the bridge of his nose. "Please, Alli, just let her rest a bit… I don't want to stress her out too much."
"Why? Anything the two of you aren't telling us?" she grinned and his eyes widened slightly.
"Sure… That's why the dress had to be let out an inch."
"Please Alice… Not now."
"I hate it when you keep things from me. And I can't believe you think I wouldn't find out," she pouted. "Besides, I need to start shopping for the tyke and how can I do that if you don't let me know?"
"I'll have her ready in an hour and a half… Until then, no comment," he grinned, pushing his sister out of the doorway with little struggle before starting to close the door in her face.
"I hate that you've had publicity training now…" he heard her grumble before her little feet could be heard stomping down the hall to find someone else to bother.
"You seem surprisingly calm this time around."
Bella turned from the window where she was watching the planners finish setting up the backyard just as Esme and Alice had ordered them to, to find her childhood best friend standing behind her with two shots of tequila in her hands.
"Thought you might need one," Angela smiled, extending one of the glasses to her.
"It's different this time around… It feels right. I can't really explain it."
"So no tequila?"
"No tequilla… I want to really remember everything. I don't feel scared… It's so hard to explain."
"No it's not sweetie… I know exactly what you are feeling. When it's right, you just know."
She never imagined getting married a second time. In fact, she never imagined her first marriage ending. The fact that it had, was still sometimes a surprise to her. But when she looked back on everything, when she took the time to really see her life for what it had been and what it had become, she knew that everything happened for a reason. No longer could she bring herself to hate Jake, not when he had brought three people, the most important people, into her life: Emmett and Rose, the two pillars who kept her strong and believed in her from the very beginning and most importantly, Edward. She couldn't imagine a life without him now, and thankfully, she knew that she never had to.
Brushing the white chiffon with her hands she let them linger on the small bump of her stomach. A child, her child, their child, slowly growing inside of her, something she never imagined she could be capable of. It thrilled her to no end. Edward had changed everything: he made her believe in herself again, showed her how to love again, and had proved to her that miricles do exist, that sometimes, you do get everything that you could ever want.
"Ready Bells?" She looked to her father, standing proud and tall and looking handsome in his tux. He was comfortable here, and he seemed to fit in well with the Cullens, something she had once feared. He welcomed Edward so easily, another concern she had once had. He had loved Jake so much she was certain that he could never love another son inlaw that way. He was disproving her in every single sense of the word. If anything, she saw a bond stronger than ever between Edward and Charlie. The had common ground and she knew that she was it: she didn't worry about their love anymore, she knew that those men loved her more than anything else in the world.
"Never been more ready dad," she smiled at him, letting him take her hand into his.
"You look beautiful and truly happy."
"I am dad, I really am."
The wedding was small. Just their closest friends and family. Held at the Cullen family home in Alderly Edge and kept so quiet that the press had not caught wind of it. The backyard had truly been transformed and both Edward and Bella had Alice to thank for that. It was something out of a fairytale: flowers everywhere, the aroma surrounding the guests and themselves. Small, delecate lanterns hung from the trees casting a soft glow during the sunset. They couldn't have planned it better themselves.
When the toasts had been made and the food had been eaten, Edward smiled, brought the hand of his wife to his lips and kissed it softly before standing up.
"Bella and I, we'd just like to thank you all for coming and sharing this day with us. I never imagined such a wonderful woman in my life and now I can't imagine a life without her. I don't know what I've done to deserve her but I promise that I'll spend the rest of my life proving myself worthy of her love," he paused for a moment and looked down to smile at her softly while she just grinned and shook her head at him. "Alice, thank you for putting this together so quickly, you might have been a pain in the ass in the process, but you've truly outdone yourself. Mum, Dad… thank you for welcoming Bella so warmly… Thank you for supporting us, even when things were difficult… And Renee and Charlie, thank you for raising such a wonderful, beautiful daughter and for giving me a chance. But most of all," he smiled and pulled on Bella's hand, raising her to her feet and wrapping his arm around her while cupping her face with the other, "I love you Bella Cullen and thank you for giving me the greatest gift of all."
Bella's eyes went wide and he just smiled and nodded at her, dropping a kiss to her forehead. "We were going to wait to announce this until we got back from our trip but with Alice finding out and all…"
"Thank god!" Esme shouted from the table off to the side. "I've been waiting for you both to just come out with it!"
Edward grinned widely, "Thank you mum, and you've finally gotten your wish. Bella and I just want to let you all be the first to know that we are expecting and in five months we'd love it if you'd be there to welcome into the world little baby Cullen."
"So…" Edward smiled as he peppered kisses along his wifes neck.
"Was it everything you imagined it would be?"
"No," she deadpanned, causing him to sit up and look at her before a smile lit her face. "It was more"
"Don't scare a man like that, you nearly gave me a heart attack darling," he pulled her closer to his body, his finger trailing over her bare arm. "Ready for forever?"
"I've never been more ready for anything else."
*Hides* I know it was short guys but I don't want to give up on the idea of a sequel… So I left you with the important information: They did get married, and they ARE pregnant. This does mean, I have every intention of revisiting these characters… I love Londonward too much to leave him alone (Karlotita09 know my obsession with him haha)… I hope that you enjoyed this short blurb into their happiness… I do plan for more in the future… But I have something else in the works right now, something I am SO EXCITED to share with you all!
Thank you though first and foremost for sticking with me throughout this… If you've made it through the angst you are all truly amazing because this one was full of it. The sequel will have it, but not as much… Still… The sequel is a bit of a way off… I hope you have enough of a conclusion for the time being.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this endeavor, you know who you are. Your kind words are loved and appreciated.
And I leave you with a sampling of the new story, OUT SOON!
"Jumping Off The Page"
Arotrosy Volturi was still alive and like the man before me, hiding. I found the details hazy, only able to piece together the major points. Volturi wanted to release classified information regarding certain US interest in the wars waging in the Middle East, information that would destroy the morale and heart of the country, information that was worthy of starting WWIII. Anthony Masen, alias of course, officially named Edward Cullen, was the agent assigned to take out Arotrosy. He obviously couldn't pull the trigger. What Masen didn't know, what his superiors had failed to inform him of, was that he wasn't the only one on the job and when the shot shook the opera house where the assassination was to take place, it was him they spotted with the gun, and him running for his life. Edward Cullen was CIA no longer. He was black listed, a rogue. And only I, Bella Swan knew the truth and the critical piece of information that would eventually, if we were lucky, save his life.
