Till Kingdom Come
Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you, I've waited all these years
For you I'd wait 'til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you'll come and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
It was a beautiful day. The sun was out, the sky perfect and cloudless. Esme and Carlisle's yard had been decorated to perfection in the most beautiful white fabrics and dazzling white roses. The guests had all arrived and were seated, anticipating the arrival of the bride. I poked my head outside and Emmett gave me a nod. I nodded back with a smile and walked back inside. "It's time to go." I announced smiling. Everyone nodded. I nodded to Rose who started outside, down the aisle. Her long rose colored dress floated spectacularly around her and the light caught her hair, making her look like an angel walking down the aisle. I nodded to Bella and Charlie once before following Rose.
It had been three months since Edward had been taken. Bella and Edward hadn't been separated since. It had been hectic, planning the rest of Rose and Emmett's wedding while planning all of Bella and Edward's, but I managed. Thankfully, for Rose and Emmett's wedding, just about everything was set. All we were waiting on was the day to arrive, and Bella had wanted a small wedding, family and a few friends only. That had been easy to arrange.
I reached the end of the aisle and smiled at Jasper who smiled back at me. In two short days, I would find out what the gender off my baby was. I was crossing my fingers for a girl, but had a small feeling it was a boy. Jasper didn't mind what we had, so long as he could love on it. I took my spot next to Rose and turned to see Bella walking down the aisle. She looked so radiant in her simple silk dress. Her hair was swept up in curls, pinned with flowers making her look so exceptionally elegant. I turned to Rose to see she had tears in her eyes. She smiled at me and we linked hands.
Their vows brought me to full on tears. There was something about the way they looked at each other, the way they spoke, so full of passion and love, that made their vows so much more powerful. I had never seen anything like their love.
I watched as they exchanged rings, Edward kissing her hand as they did, before they kissed. It was a tender kiss, full of passion, yet reserved. It was a true love kiss.
I suddenly had an aching need to be next to Jasper again. To feel his strong arms around me, showing me how much he loved me.
With passion burning of Bella and Edward, I moved to Jasper's side as we headed back down the aisle. He leaned down to kiss me deeply, understanding just how I was feeling, as always. I smiled at him and he wrapped an arm around me, hugging me gently. "I love you so much." He whispered into my hair. I nodded.
"I love you too Jazz."
Words couldn't describe the level of my happiness. It was overwhelming, all consuming and earth shattering. It was like I had never been alive, had never felt this emotion until now.
Edward led us out onto the dance floor for our first dance as husband and wife. He had chosen the song he had written for me as our song and I had agreed. We danced around the dance floor, completely wrapped up in each other, Edward whispering the song in my ear.
"Bella, do you remember, when we were seventeen?" he asked gently. I looked up and frowned. "The one and only time you ever got mad at me." I smiled and rolled my eyes.
"Yes, what about it?" I asked gently.
"Do you remember my apology?" I thought back and nodded. I remembered it very clearly.
I couldn't believe he had embarrassed me again. Over something so silly no less. "Bella love please!" I could hear his voice through the heavy down pour and shook my head, my wet bangs stuck to my face. "Bella love I know you are mad at me but please get in the car! I don't want you to get sick." I ignored him. I was too stubborn to give in.
I could hear the low thrum of his Volvo as he drove next to me on the side walk.
"Bella love, you aren't really going to walk all the way home are you?" I ignored him. Yes I was going to walk all the way home. I was a big girl. I could do it.
I heard a car pull up in front of Edward and I turned to see Emmett's massive truck, Emmett's face clear through the down pour.
"Still pissed at Eddie? Good, keep it up. He needs it." Emmett said chuckling. I growled and lunged at him.
"YOU!" I screeched, furious with Emmett. He laughed and drove off yelling his farewell on the way.
"Bella please!" Edward pulled up in front of me and I turned to continue on when he caught my wrist. "Bella, I know I acted foolishly and I'm so sorry I embarrassed you like that. I should have never let Emmett get into my head like I did." He said desperately. I shook my head.
"I'm not ready to forgive you yet." I said pulling my arm away and stomping back to the side walk.
"At least get in the car Bells." I shook my head stubbornly. "Fine, I'll just follow you." And he did. He followed me all the way to my house, and when we got there, he got out of his car and followed me in the house. I was ready to throw him out if I hadn't been frozen solid, pretty much incapable of doing anything but blinking. He picked me up gently and carried me upstairs to the bathroom. Charlie was out of town in Seattle for a police conference for a week. This was supposed to be a good week for Edward and me. We could be together freely without worrying about family barging in on us.
Edward carried me into the small bathroom and placed me down on the toilet while he drew me a hot bath. He turned to me, silently and started unbuttoning my coat. I was naturally, a very shy person. Just the mention of something scandalous got me blushing. But with Edward, I was never shy, never awkward. We had known each other too long for there to be awkwardness.
I let him strip me of my wet clothing before helping me into the steaming bath. Instantly I felt my body start to thaw. I closed my eyes, enjoying the warmth. "This doesn't mean I forgive you yet." I said softly, my eyes still closed. Edward chuckled.
"I know love. I would still be here though to take care of you, even if you hated me." I opened my eyes and stared at him.
"I could never hate you." He shrugged.
"Regardless. I want to take care of you." I felt myself melt at his words. I didn't deserve him. He was too good for me, too perfect. "Hold my head inside your hands," he started singing gently. "I need someone who understands, I need someone, someone who hears, For you, I've waited all these years." I blinked back my tears and looked at him. He was looking at me, with all the love in the world. "For you I'd wait 'til kingdom come, Until my day, my day is done, And say you'll come and set me free, Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me." I shook my head.
"You're too perfect." I whispered, tears in my eyes.
"Bella, I know I was an ass. I shouldn't have pulled that prank on Mike. But you have to understand how frustrating he is when he is constantly talking about you, obsessing over you right in front of me. I needed him to see once and for all that you are mine and I don't like to share." I nodded, understanding.
"Edward, I'll always be yours. You know that and I know that. Isn't that enough?" I asked gently. He sighed.
"I just wanted to make it clear to Newton." He said softly. "Can you fault me for loving you?" when he put it that way, no, I couldn't.
"No, I guess not." I said slowly. Edward nodded.
"Bella, I love you more than anything and I'll do whatever it takes to make you happy. I'm sorry I embarrassed you in front of everyone. I only wanted to prove a point. But I see now I shouldn't have gone about it that way. Our love is strong enough to prove a point on its own." I nodded, glad he understood where I was coming from.
"You should apologize to Mike." I said gently. "He was more embarrassed than I was." Edward nodded, his eyes down cast.
"I really am sorry." He said gently. I nodded and lifted a hand out of the warm water to hold one of his.
"I know. I forgive you." He leaned over and kissed me gently.
I blinked tears away at the memory. It was one of the many memories I had of Edward being absolutely perfect to me.
"Bella?" I looked up at him now, my husband, and smiled.
"Yes?" he smiled and kissed my neck gently.
"Thank you for not keeping me waiting till kingdom come." He said gently. I laughed.
"Thank you for waiting." He smiled at me as he spun me around the dance floor to the song he wrote me.
"I'll always wait for you Bella. Always."
Tear. This is the end. :( if you want any more chapters, I'd be willing to write one or two more, shooting into the future and showing how they turned out. Other than that though, this is really the end.
