She was walking down the aisle towards me in this beautiful white gown. However, her gown's beauty couldn't even compete with her face or the love that we shared. So beautiful, I know it, but I still couldn't see her face. It was still just a blob. I just saw beautiful brown hair with red highlights and chocolate eyes.
She walked up to me and the first thing she said was "I love you."
"I love you too," I whispered back.
I knew our eyes were on each other and we didn't even listen to what the minister was saying. The minute we stepped closer to put on the rings, the scene changed into the ballroom setting. We were all of a sudden slow dancing the night away.
"You know, if you were to tell me that I was going to end up marrying Edward Masen, I would've just laughed."
"If someone were to tell me that I was going to end up marrying Isabella Swan, I would've cried knowing that it could never happen."Her name just spilled out of my mouth. I wasn't sure what I said until after I heard myself say it. It just felt…natural to say her name.
And then her face became crystal clear. Her nose, her cheeks, her chin…
"Oh Bella, Bella," I hugged her tightly to me, "it's you. I love you," I kissed her all over her bare neck and shoulders, "so very much. I can't stop thinking about you either."
She giggled and pushed me slightly away, "Eddie, save it for the honeymoon. Trust me, it'll be worth the wait."
I gave her my dazzling smile, "Oh, I know. I'm just giving you a preview."
"Hmm, well don't tease me or else I may want our first time to be in a closet."
"Closet, beach, airplane, baby you just name it and I'll make it happen." I joked.
We both laughed and continued holding onto each other.
A gun was shot, just one shot. Everyone was scurrying and along with them came a new scene.
Bella was shot in her white dress and a red stain was getting larger and larger. "Bella, no!" I cried out while she was on my lap.
Caius came into view and I yelled at him, "What the fuck is wrong with you? Why?"
"I didn't kill her Masen, you did."
"What?" I looked down and saw a black object in my hands.
Then the scene changed again into a fog. A white thick fog. Bella disappeared from my lap and Caius was erased. All that was left was me standing, holding the black object.
All of a sudden, I see someone walking towards me. "Who are you?"
He kept coming, "What do you want?"I asked.
"Edward Anthony Mason Jr. My son. It is so good to see you."
"Dad."I knew it was him. Only his voice was like that.
"Hello son."He came up to me and gave me a hug.
"Dad, I have so many questions…"
"We don't have time for that son. Eddie, look down into that object in the palm of your hands. You'll be surprised."
I looked down and I was shocked to see that the black object turned into a small black velvet box. "Dad, this isn't…"
"Just open it son."
I opened it and I couldn't believe my eyes. Inside was a small engagement ring. It was beautiful and expensive. Simple and elegant. White gold diamond band with a huge round diamond on top. Something I could never afford. "Dad, this is an engagement ring. Something I could never afford. Why am I holding this?"
"Eddie," He lowers my hand and regains my attention, "your love ends up killing Bella."
"What? How is that possible? I love her."
"I don't have enough time to explain, but don't take what I just said to face value. Just think about it. Your love will eventually kill her because you're an SOB. Be careful. Protect her. Love is worth it. Bella is worth it."
"I know that already but…"
"I'm sorry Eddie, but I must go." He was fading away in the distance.
"Dad, wait, no!" He wasn't going to come back.
The scene changed again…
"Eddie?" I heard the sound of my angel.
"Eddie?" She appeared right by my side in all of the fog. "Are you going to ask me?"
"Ask you what?"
"You are proposing, right? I mean why else would you have an engagement ring in your hand?"
I looked down and saw what she saw. The ring, the velvet box, all of it.
She giggled. "You're probably still in shock that you want to marry me. It's okay. You don't even have to ask because I'm already yours. Of course I'll marry you." She grabbed my neck to turn to her and she kissed me. Our first kiss as an engaged couple. I grabbed onto her, wishing that this wouldn't end.
She giggled once more, "Eddie, you're going to have to let go of me at some point in order to make this a reality."
"Next time you ask, make sure you're on one knee."
All of a sudden, a loud annoying beep was echoing around us. "Time to wake up Eddie," my angel said.
Then I was shaken.
"Time to wake up Eddie…"
"Time to wake up Eddie…"
"Time to wake up Eddie," my mother woke me from an amazing dream. "You're going to be late if you don't wake up now. You probably don't want to keep your precious Bella waiting, do you?"
"Mom, you're not going to believe what I just dreamt about."
She laughed. "If it was about Bella, I can believe that. Come on. Up and go for school. I made your favorite lunch: Turkey sandwich with a Cinnamon bagel. I even made one for Bella if you want to share."
"Thanks mom. I'll be going."
After getting ready, I put on my helmet to get ready to ride my motorcycle. As I'm about to get on my bike, my mother says, "Maybe we should start saving up for a new car. This one is getting old and you can't always be riding that bike. It's too dangerous. Plus, you're going to need one for college and…"
"Mom, let me worry about that one." I offered.
"How about no one worries about it at all. It was just an idea. Have a good day at school Edward."
I arrived at school and I got a text from Cullen.
SOB Meeting. Tonight. Don't be late.
"Eddie!" Bella's voice is the most wonderful sound ever. She ran up to me, squealed, jumped up at me, I caught her, and she wrapped her legs around me. If only we were alone and I was by a wall…oh well, my bike will have to do.
I set her down to sit on my bike and the first thing I did was kiss her…hard and passionately. I couldn't stop. We were all tongues and saliva for a good while. I loved it. I love her.
I could tell that she was getting out of breath so I pulled away. "Why'd you stop, Eddie?" Bella asked. I rested my forehead against hers and I saw her lips. All pink and swollen and her lipstick or whatever shit she put on them was long gone.
"You're out of breath."
"I still could have lasted for a good one more minute…or two."
"Save it for the professionals."
"Oh! Are you calling me a rookie?"
"Yes," and I smirked at her, "but a sexy one." She smiled back and began kissing my chin and all the way down to my neck. She pushed my shirt and leather jacket aside to kiss me some more, until I felt her teeth. "Ouch! Hey!"
"It's because I love you that I let you get away with saying such crap."
This made both of us laugh.
"You know," I started, "I think you just gave me a hickey."
"Oh really? I guess the next question is when are you giving me one? Tonight? Maybe?"
"Arrr," I put my head on her shoulder. The invite was so tempting, and I loved that we could have moments like this, but we had to get back to reality. I had to get back to reality. "That is so tempting but I can't. My boss just texted me about a meeting tonight. It's probably the Wolves, the Vultures, and now the Hell Riders. I'm doing my best to get you off their radar but it's going to be hard since this thing your parents set are the cause of it all." Her eyes lowered and I could tell I upset her. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset you."
She took a deep breath. "No, no, it's okay. You were just telling the truth. It's just," she took her hand and brushed through my hair. It felt so good. "I really wanted to spend time with you tonight, you know?"
I pushed back a single strand of hair of Bella's. "Yes, I know. I was looking forward to it too. But I need to protect you."
She took a deep sigh too. "Okay." She pouted a bit too.
"But I can try to come if the meeting ends early. I can't guarantee it, but I can probably sneak in after the meeting and we can cuddle a bit, if you want?"
She smiled a bit. "That's better than nothing."
"Your parents still gone?"
She nodded happily. "Yup!"
"Then I will definitely do my best to come."
"I can't wait." Then the bell rang. "We should get going, class is starting. Bye Eddie!" And off she ran. Did I mention she was in her cheerleading uniform? She looked so cute and sexy with her ponytail up so high and curled.
"I can't wait either."
I walked into the conference room for our big discussion.
"So what do we do now?" someone shouted.
"It's not like we can just attack anyone but the Hell Riders now, right? I mean, the Vultures aren't our enemy in this case. The HeR made it that way," someone else called.
"Off with the Hell Riders!"
"Yeah!" Everyone else shouted.
"Wait," I said, "We can't just go around beating up girls. It isn't morally right, if you know what I mean. I mean, even we're better than that, aren't we?" I asked.
"Didn't you hear, Masen? The person we can kill that can get us loads of money is a girl. I don't care who I have to beat. If that person deserves it or if I'm motivated to, I will do it." Someone said.
I clenched my fists. "You guys don't all agree, do you?" I asked.
"Of course we do," Cullen announced his presence…finally, "I want money and it's easy. It's a girl. What kind of damage can an average girl do to us?"
McCarty and McClintock came up behind me to whisper, "Be careful Masen. Don't show too much anger or else Cullen will find out about your relationship."
"How come he doesn't already know?" I whispered back, furious at the situation.
"We told all of our bitches at school that whoever had the guts to tell would have to face our wrath," McClintock supported me.
"Hm, because the 3 bitchers' wrath is the worst," I added.
"Exactly," the two agreed.
"We can talk about killing this girl later," Cullen interrupted loudly. "Right now, we have to deal with this war. Any suggestions?"
"Well, from what we've been told, The Wolves aren't our target."
"And we are also not supposed to be the Vultures' target…"
"…because the Hell Riders killed the Vultures members."
"So how do we shift the Vultures' attention from us to them?"
"Well, we can't just go up to them and tell them."
"Because there would be no reason for them to believe us."
"We also need evidence."
"When we go to war, we could bring the Hell Riders and go from there."
"Or maybe we could threaten another life of a Vulture for them to listen."
"Maybe having the Wolves back us up would be good too."
McCarty pipes in, "Now we got a plan cooking," rubbing his hands together.
"I'm leaving but that doesn't mean this meeting is over. Think about this plan more and then I can talk with you all more later," Cullen announces his dismissal. Fucking son of a bitch. Of course he wasn't going to stay.
After he left, I told McCarty and McClintock to cover for me. I had to go see Bella. I'm glad they agreed to cover me.
I waited. I was worried that he wouldn't show. I was also worried that he couldn't make it. I knew he wouldn't purposely not show up if he could. He wouldn't do that.
But still, the wait agonizes me.
My cell phone rang and it was my parents, "What?" I answered rudely. I didn't want to talk to them, especially since it was so late into the night.
"Where are you?" my father demanded.
"I'm at home, why are you calling me?"
"I've called your cell multiple times and you never pick up."
"That's because I'm busy with school and stuff."
"Keep your phone on!"
"It is on! Look, is there any reason you called me at such a late hour? Can't it wait?"
"I don't like that you don't pick up my phone calls. When I call you, you have to pick up!"
"Not when I'm in class."
"That is fine. Put your phone on vibrate."
"That doesn't make sense at all. I still can't pick up if it's on vibrate and it's still rude to my teachers."
"I don't care!"
"Dad, this is pointless. I have to sleep. Bye." And I hung up.
I hate phone calls like these. He calls for no damn reason and ends up yelling at me. That's because one of his fears is that I'll never talk to him anymore. Well, if I never talk to him anymore it is only because he deserves it.
I look down and see what I've put myself into. Is it a good outfit for Eddie or not? Does it scream desperate? I sighed.
I was wearing a VS pushup lace bra. For panties, I'm wearing a black lace cheeky panty after getting a fresh Brazilian wax. God I love those. They make me feel really clean afterwards. To top it off, I was wearing light makeup.
I figured this was a bit much so I threw on Eddie's shirt that he left a couple nights ago. He left it and borrowed Jasper's clothes to wear to school. He only remembered to wear his leather jacket but I purposely didn't remind him of his other clothing. I loved having his clothes here and I even loved wearing them, and smelling them. I love him.
I kind of also wanted his leather jacket but I knew that would be too much. I know that was his only coat too. Poor Eddie. Him and his mom don't have much and here I have everything.
I heard a knock on my window and was surprised with what I saw. "Eddie!" I screamed out in joy.
I rushed to the window, completely forgetting that I'm only in my bra and panties, and rush to open the window for him to come inside. "Hurry, come inside. You'll let the heat out. God it's so cold out there," I shivered. Goosebumps just stuck to me like a second skin.
"Bella, when you're wearing next to nothing, of course you'll be cold." He tucked me to his body, closed the window, and wrapped his jacket around me while he was still wearing it. Hmm…if this is how close I can get to his jacket, then I'll have this any day than just having me wearing it.
"I'm sorry," and I finished my last shiver, "it was supposed to be a surprise."
"I do love surprises. Let me have a good look at you." He turned me away from his body and twirled me around a few times to admire me and my body. His intense glare made it seemed that he appreciated me and made me think that I was sexy. I don't know why, but I was always self conscious of my body. Always. "You are a stunning vision, if I do say so myself. Is that my shirt?"
"You do look better in it than I ever did."
I laughed. "Well the real surprise is what is under your shirt."
"Ugh woman," he grabbed me and grinded me in the front, "Can't you feel what you already do to me?"
I could feel him. And he felt…perfect. Absolute perfection. My perfection. "Yes, I know exactly what I do to you. That is why I'm doing it," I smiled.
He gave me his wonderful crooked smile back but then his face turned serious, "Listen Bella, I just got back from my meeting and it doesn't seem good. Cullen, our boss as you can call him, really wants to figure out who to kill for the money. We're really going to have to lay really low," he tucked some hair back while my head was downcast, "I just don't know how to protect you. I've never been in this situation before."
"I understand. Lets just enjoy tonight, okay?" I offered.
"I would love that, but I don't really want to do anything tonight…sexually-wise. So whatever number you have underneath there, do not show me or else I may have to take back my word," he warned.
"Oh, it was just a new set of bra of panties." I quickly lifted the shirt to flash him and quickly covered myself. I giggled because I just flashed him.
"Oh Bella," he grabbed me close, "You are playing with fire."
"Lets burn this place up then."
And again, I spent another perfect night with him.
