I sighed.

Lying next to me was my Edward, my stunning, god-like Edward. I didn't deserve him, not at all. He was so dazzling, so interesting, and I had to be the plainest person to walk this earth.

But for some inexplicable reason, he wanted me, loved me.

Of course, being gifted with superb senses as he was (one of the many perks of vampirism), Edward heard my sigh.

And asked "What's wrong, Bella? You seem…deep in thought."

I smiled shyly as I replied. "I'm just thinking. About how lucky I am."

He chuckled. "Well, you're clearly lucky. Your number's been up since you arrived in Forks, yet here you are, still breathing, heart still beating."

He put his head to my chest, to demonstrate my beating heart and working lungs, and my heart began to race erratically, my face flushing red. I could never get over his beauty.

He continued. "But what in particular makes you consider your good fortune?"

I felt embarrassed as I replied, always reluctant to admit the extent of my love for Edward. "It's because of you. You being here, with me. Loving me."

Edward's eyes darkened slightly at my answer, though it happened so fleetingly that I was sure I had imagined it.

"Don't ever think you're unworthy, Bella. If anything, you're too good for me," his voice was rough as he responded, no longer velvety smooth.

He pulled me closer to him and kissed me, showing none of the usual caution he possessed. I wasn't going to complain though. All I wanted was for us to be closer.

In the heat of the moment, I didn't realize that the kiss was the same as the one he gave me the time that he left, the time that he shattered my existence.

A/N: What do you think? Review, and the universe'll love you.

And this looked a lot longer when I first typed it out, haha.
