So this is my third… yeah, it's my third time posting this chapter. FF took it down twice already, I don't know why…
Oh well, hopefully you'll enjoy this one.
"So you ready for tomorrow night?"
I groaned and looked at him, "Seriously? You're gonna bring that up now."
He shrugged innocently but I could still see that stupid smirk no matter how good he was at hiding it, "What? We are going together, I just thought I'd remind you."
"Well don't worry, Alice reminded me enough." I threw a Skittle at him.
He glared at me and threw his disgusting popcorn back at me.
"Ew! Eddie! Now I'm gonna smell like popcorn! God, thanks!" I screeched making him laugh, "You know I could always just ditch you at the prom."
He narrowed his eyes at me, "Yes, perhaps you could, but you wouldn't."
I chuckled, "Oh and what makes you so sure?"
"I know you." He simply stated, shutting me up. We were sprawled across his bed eating junk while I was making him watch The Bachelor with me.
"This is stupid." He mumbled.
"Nooo." I drawled out defensively, "They come here to find true love and they do."
"This isn't how you find true love Bella."
"Yeah, really. Do you honestly think they're in love after knowing each other for a couple of weeks?"
I shrugged and popped some red skittles into my mouth, "I don't know, maybe. Love at first sight?"
He snorted, "That's bullshit and you know it."
I sat up and glared at him, "You know what Eddie, if this is how you're gonna act during our sleepover then I'm just gonna go over to Alice's room, I'm sure she'll agree that The Bachelor is amazing."
He shrugged, "Fine."
I glared at him even more but finally got off the bed and started making my way toward the door, as my hand touched the handle I felt his arms wrap around my waist and throw me over his shoulder.
"Okay, okay, we'll watch your stupid show and talk about love at first sight."
"That's the spirit!" I squealed when he threw me on his bed.
We sat in silence for about two minutes until I heard Edward speak up in a girly voice. "So do you like, want me to like, brush your hair or somethin'?"
I felt my eyes widen as I looked at him, and that's all it took for us to start cracking up.
"You're so lame Eddie." I threw some more Skittles at him.
He threw his arm over my shoulder and sighed dramatically. "But that's okay right? We're gonna be bff's no matter what RIGHT?"
I shook my head laughing, "You know it."
It was Saturday which only meant one thing. Prom. Which also meant that me and the boys were banned from the house the whole day. So we took advantage of that and did the only thing we could, sneak into Bella's house and play basketball on one of the courts.
"So Esme's there now?" Jasper asked.
I nodded. "Yeah, Charlie and Carlisle should be coming here any minute. Esme didn't want to miss prom of course."
Emmett looked at me and grinned. "So have they decided where their shipping us off for the summer?"
I shrugged. "I don't know, but I think it's about time we go to Vegas."
"Hell yeah!" My brother yelled.
"Like that'll happen," Jasper mumbled.
I raised an eyebrow at him. "You never know, maybe they'll give in this year."
"They told us they'd think about it if we acted properly in Miami last year, all was good until they got a $10,000 hotel fine in damages thanks to Emmett."
Emmett glared at both of us. "Hey! That was an accident and you two know it!"
I laughed. "Throwing the coffee table out the balcony was an accident?"
"The maid kept on leaving notes saying there's sand on it because I put my feet on it. I solved a problem for both of us." He was actually being serious.
"Alright, what about the broken plasma TV?"
He sighed and looked up at the sky, "I already told you that it wasn't working properly so I tried to fix it."
"Right Emmett," I mumbled. Idiot.
We played for about an hour until we all got hungry and decided to raid Bella's pantry. The girl's got some good stuff in there, let me tell you.
"Oh my god, these Pop-Tarts are amazing." Emmett moaned.
"Em, they're just regular strawberry, you have them at your house." Japer pointed out.
"Yeah but they're better here." He kept on moaning.
"Okay you need to stop moaning because it's getting fucking weird." I threw a waffle at him.
"Speaking of moaning, tonight's prom. You and Bella?" Emmett wiggled his eyebrows at me.
"Emmett, don't start that shit, you know it's not like that."
"Yeah, yeah I know, but still, has she opened up at all?"
I sighed and rubbed my eyes. "She opened up but not to actually dating me."
Jasper patted my back. "I'm sure she'll come around, she knows how much she means to you."
"Let's just hope so."
"Belly Boop, are you sure you don't want me to do half up half down?"
"Chrissie seriously, I just want nice curls left alone. I don't like dealing with fancy hairdo's."
"Well you and Alice are just night and day then." He giggled making me laugh.
"Oh you have no idea." I muttered.
Since 10 this morning I've been prepped, primed, plucked, and tortured by Alice and Chrissie. Rosalie being the loyal friend that I love decided to stay out of my torture and even yell at Alice when she got out of hand. Bless her heart.
The boys were kicked out and I'm pretty sure they're pigging out at my house, The rents came home today so Esme can take pictures and be… be a mom? To say that she was surprised when she found out me and Edward are going together would be an understatement. She tried to look nonchalant but you could totally see the joy it brought her to know that me and Edward are getting closer.
I don't blame her.
It was five now and the boys are at Rosalie's and Jasper's house getting ready themselves.
"Okay Bella here, I'm gonna hold your hair while you step into the dress kay?" Rosalie asked me.
I nodded. "Yeah, just be careful, I don't want the two divas bitching me out for messing up my hair."
She laughed and held my hair while I carefully stepped into my dress. "Damn Bella, wanna have my babies?" Rosalie commented as she spun me around.
"Sure babe, let's ditch Edward and Emmett and go to Vegas tonight instead." I chuckled.
She laughed and pulled me into the foyer where Chrissie was talking to Alice and Esme. "And then he was like, boy you lookin' good. And I'm like, Oh hell no! You and your redneck ass did NOT just hit on me!"
Alice and Esme gasped and then hugged Chrissie while me and Rosalie rolled our eyes. "Ahem." Rosalie cleared her throat.
Esme jumped up and covered her mouth with her hand, "Oh my goodness! You two look so gorgeous! My sons are so lucky." She ran to the coffee table and picked up her silver camera, "Here, all three of you stand together, I'm gonna take a picture." She pushed a bouncing Alice toward us and for the next half hour we posed like celebrities laughing at ourselves.
Esme almost fell to the floor when me and Rosalie started posing like some trashy girls from a porno. Rosalie laughed as she stood behind me and grabbed my boobs making me laugh so hard I was scared my mascara was gonna run down my face from the tears that were threatening to leak.
We turned around and saw Emmett and Edward standing by the front door with their mouths hung open. Jasper just looked away not wanting to see his sister In the position that she was in now.
Me and Rosalie giggled and straightened ourselves out, all of a sudden Rosalie wrapped her arm around my waist and pulled me closer. "Oh yeah, we didn't know how to tell you this but me and Bella can't keep it a secret anymore."
I nodded in agreement. "I'm really sorry but you're going to have to find another date. We're going to Vegas to make it official."
Emmett shook his head. "By all means don't stop on our account, but if you're going to Vegas we're coming with to watch it all happen."
Edward just stood there with his mouth ready to hit the floor.
Esme sighed and shook her head, "No one's going to Vegas tonight. Now come on! It's picture time!"
I laughed and walked up to Edward gently placing my finger underneath his chin and lifting It up, "Come on lover boy, it's picture time."
He wrapped his arms around my waist and buried his head in the crook of neck, "You're not really ditching me tonight are you?" He actually sounded serious.
I chuckled and wrapped my arms around him, "Edward don't be silly, I wouldn't leave you for anyone."
He finally lifted his head and smiled. "Is that a promise?"
I nodded. "I promise."
We joined the group and Esme snapped away, group photos, couple photos, single photos. After what felt like forever Edward finally put a stop to the madness and pulled me out of the house and into the limo that we got for the whole group.
"She's crazy," He muttered.
I laughed. "Yeah I can definitely see where Alice get's her traits from."
Alice just glared at me while everyone else laughed.
Emmett went to the mini fridge and pulled out a bottle of champagne popping it open and not even bothering to pour it into the glasses provided.
"Well kiddos, let's toast to my last prom. Alice, Bella, and Edward," He pointed at us, "you be good next year, make papa proud." He pointed at himself.
We nodded trying not to burst out laughing at his speech.
"Rosalie, Jasper and myself will get UCLA ready for you when you finally come next year. Until then, let's fuck this shit up."
Finally, everyone started laughing hysterically while Emmett chugged half the bottle in one gulp.
He passed the bottle to me and I raised it in a toast. "I'm gonna miss you guys."
The bottle was finished in under five minutes, thank god we had a driver tonight.
We pulled up in front of the beach side hotel that was rented for our prom this year. It looked like everyone was already there.
Edward helped me out of the car and pulled me close to him, "You look beautiful tonight love."
I smiled at him. "You look pretty good yourself stud."
He chuckled and we finally reached the grand hall where everyone was dancing. Our whole group immediately joined everyone on the dance floor. Edward held me close while we danced but then Rosalie pulled me away and started grinding into me keeping up our pretence once again making Emmett and Edward's mouth drop open in shock.
Of course it was all about Emmett and I when he requested 'Milkshake', everyone in the room made a circle around us and started chanting as we moved in perfect harmony to the song.
After the song Edward pulled me into his arms and didn't let go of me, saying that I was dangerous and that he should keep an eye on me.
"Okay Forks High, I think it's time to announce the senior class King and Queen!" The DJ announced through his mic and everyone immediately walked closer to the stage.
"Alright ladies and gents, your king this year is… Emmett Cullen!" Emmett pumped his fist in the air and ran up the stage, while everyone cheered.
"Yeah Baby!!" The teacher holding his crown placed it on his head.
"And finally, your queen… Rosalie Hale!" Rosalie winked at me and walked up the stage while everyone clapped and cheered.
Emmett picked Rosalie up and spun her around when she was crowned. Then of course it was time for their dance.
We all swayed to the music while the couple danced, I've never seen Emmett be so gentle. Finally the song ended and everyone resumed dancing while we walked towards the middle of the dance floor to find the royal couple, but instead of finding Emmett and Rosalie I saw Luke.
"What the fuck!?" I yelled when I realized he was with that whore. Skank. Bitch. Slut. Cunt. Taylor.
By now the whole group was back together and they looked in the direction I was glaring.
Alice gasped. "Is that the whore?"
I nodded and clenched my fist, "How fucking sick is he!?" I exclaimed. "Why the fuck would he bring her here when he knew I was coming?!"
I felt Edward trembling beside me. "Bella, just say the word and they both die."
I shook my head and looked at Rosalie, she nodded. "I have a better idea."
I started stalking up to where they were dancing, Rosalie right beside me, the bitch didn't even have a chance to blink before my fist connected with her nose, a nice crack was heard before she fell to the floor.
"OW! My nose!" She moaned in pain and her eyes widened when she realized who punched her. "Oh no." She whimpered.
But I didn't even care about her anymore, my next target was staring at me in shock, "Who the fuck do you think you are!? Do you honestly think I'm gonna be cool that you brought the same whore that was wrapped around you while we were dating to prom!?" I screamed at his face.
"Bella no, honestly, I didn't think you would car-" He never got to finish his sentence because my knee connected with his groin.
I heard all the guys in the room groan in pain as they saw Luke cup his sack. "Maybe next time you'll think before you act like an idiot." I grabbed Rosalie's hand and we pushed our way through the shocked crowd.
Once we exited the building she laughed and hugged me tight, "Oh my god Bella! You seriously made this the best prom ever!"
I laughed along with her, "Fuck that felt so good." I said as I clenched and unclenched my fist. MY knuckles were already a scary red.
"Bella!" We turned around and saw the rest of the group running out of the building, Edward got to me first, he picked me up and spun me around. "That was the hottest thing I've see you do!"
I laughed even harder, "Maybe I should punch hoes more often then."
Emmett ripped me out of Edward's arms and spun me around also, shit I'm getting dizzy. "Holy fuck Bells! You should of seen everyone's faces! No one's gonna fuck with you now."
He finally put me down and Edward appeared at my side again, this time he lifted my hand and looked at my knuckles, "Does it hurt bad?" I shook my head, "It's gonna bruise love, but it's definitely gonna be worth it." He gently kissed each knuckle and I almost melted.
"Well kiddos, how about we go the beach?" Jasper offered.
We all agreed and took our time walking down the wooden stairs that led to the beach, it was already dark but there were some bonfires lit so we could see everything clearly.
The two couples went and sat by one of the fire's, I was about to follow them but Edward pulled me the other way, "Walk with me?" I nodded and cuddled into his side.
We walked in comfortable silence for a good fifteen minutes until Edward finally stopped and turned so he was looking directly at me. "I'm really proud of you Bells." He whispered making me smile.
"I'm pretty proud of myself after what happened tonight."
He shook his head. "No, not just tonight, even though I'm gonna remember that for as long as I live, but for everything. You've been through so much and you're still so strong."
"Edward, it's everything that happened for the last four years is what made me stronger."
"I know, but even after everything just the two of us have been through you still managed to find it in your heart to forgive me."
I took a deep breath, it's now or never.
"I haven't just forgiven you Edward," Oh god, oh my god. "I've fallen in love with you." I whispered the last part.
Edward just stared at me. "Excuse me, what was that?"
I looked at him, truly confused. "I love you, Edward."
He shook his head. "No, I think I heard you wrong. Can you repeat that."
This boy is truly crazy, I grabbed his face and pulled him down so I could capture his lips with my own, he was shocked for about two seconds until he wrapped his arms around me and deepened the kiss. Kissing Edward was like… having all the butterflies in the world fluttering in your stomach, it was like jumping out of an airplane and flying through the air, it was… it was amazing.
We finally broke apart and I looked into his eyes, "Edward Cullen, I love you, I love everything about you."
His face broke into a shit eating grin as he kissed me again, and again… and again.
"You have no idea how long I've waited to hear that. Isabella Swan, I love you too, more than anything else in the world. You are my life now."
Nothing could compare to his moment, absolutely nothing. Nothing Luke has said to me, none of his kisses , none of his hugs or touches, none of that mattered.
All that mattered now was him. He who was holding me tightly in his arms right now, he who promises to love me even when I'm wrinkly and old, he who I know I want to spend every moment of forever with.
He, who I give my heart to.
Awweeee. It's about time, I know. Only an epilogue left.
