A/N: Here is the last chapter. Other stuff took over my life, but I just had to finish this. And now I won't feel guilty for not finishing this anymore! Enjoy :)

Chap. 25


We were all pretty curious of what Alice had come up with this time. She wasn't exactly known for having boring or especially good ideas when it came to 'having fun'.

It was obvious that Edward didn't know what she had planned either. Not that anything about that was new, since Alice never revealed what she was planning before she told us all.

Suddenly Edward sighed, and everyone's head snapped towards him.

"What?" Emmett asked curiously.

"Alice, I don't think that's a good idea. Remember what happened last time?" Edward said to Alice, ignoring Emmett's question.

"What last time?" Emmett looked at Alice, looking for an answer.

"Don't ruin all the fun, Edward. It'll be fine, trust me." Alice smiled at him sweetly. He sighed and started playing with my hair.

"Okay then," Alice grinned, "we're gonna visit an old friend."

"What? Who?" Emmett looked genuinely confused.

"Mike," Edward answered, still playing with my hair.

"Newton? Isn't he dead?" Rose asked with a disgusted expression.

"Obviously not if Alice says we're gonna visit him."

"But why?"

"You'll see," Alice smiled and gestured to the door, silently asking us if we were going.

I looked around at the others and stopped when I came to Edward. I raised an eyebrow, wondering if it would be fun or not. He kissed me on the cheek and winked at me, before rising and walking towards the door after Alice and Jasper. Emmett and Rose followed quickly, and at last I got up and ran after them.

Edward was running a bit slower than the others, waiting for me to catch up with him. I took his hand and sped up. Of course, he could keep up with me, as he was a lot faster than me.

The run wasn't very long, it didn't take us much time to get to the house Newton lived in. It was a small house by the forest. The house was dark, except a dim light in one of the rooms facing the trees.

"Okay, the front door is open, and Mike will be asleep in the room with the light. Go get him, Bella!" Alice cheered.

"Wait, what?" I looked at her as if she'd gone crazy. She sighed.

"You go in there, and lie down in the bed beside him. He'll be alone and sleeping." Edward tightened his grip on me and glared at Alice.

"Why do I have to do it?" I asked.

"Because it's Mike Newton. You do remember he had the biggest crush on you, right? I still think you should have given him a chance, Bella." Emmett wiggled his eyebrows and whistled.

Rosalie slapped the back of his head. Alice rolled her eyes at Emmett before turning to me and explaining what I was supposed to do. Everyone seemed to think what I was about to do was very entertaining. Except Edward of course. In his head he was probably making death threats at everyone, which only entertained us even more.

"Don't worry, Edward," I said when Alice was finished talking. "It'll be fine. You know I love you, but I just have to see him again to say goodbye. Mike didn't deserve the way I just left him hanging. We had something special."

"Very funny, Bella. Fine, just do it so we can get home."

"Love you too" I said as I walked towards the front door. As Alice said, it was unlocked. Mike's house had old furniture and was very messy. I managed to find his bedroom fairly quickly, I just followed the smell of Mike. After opening the door and walking over to his bed as quietly as I could, I laid down next to him. The bed was uncomfortable, and the smell almost made me sick.

Mike was snoring lightly when I walked in, but once I laid down he stoped snoring and his breathing became lighter. Great. He was waking up. I was going to kill Alice when I got out of here.

Just as I sighed, Mike's eyes started to slowly open. His eyes were still blue, but they had faded a bit over the years.


I bit my lip as I braced myself for what I was about to do.

"Yes, Mike. I'm here." I whispered softly back and smiled.

"Am I dreaming?" He asked. I could tell he was confused, which was really not surprising, considering the circumstances.

"Maybe, maybe not."

"But how can you still look so young? And so beautiful."

"That is not important. What is important is what you want to tell me. I know you have something to say, Mike."

"I love you!" He blurted it out, blushing as he realized what he had just said. I laughed quietly, despite the fact that I was about to throw up - not that I actually could throw up, but in a metaphorical sense.

"Oh, Mike. You haven't changed a bit. Do you have anything else you wish to say before I leave?"

"Why do you have to leave? Stay with me, Bella!" He raised his hand to palm my face and before I could register what was happening, he was leaning in to kiss me. I knew I had to leave before Edward came inside to kill Mike and burn his house down. I quickly got up and ran out of the house to the others who could barely stand on their feet due to their laughter. Everyone except Edward who was, as usual, not amused.

"Really funny guys. Let's go Bella." Mr. Grumpy said, grabbing my arm and dragging me into the woods. I laughed at his cute jealousy.

Edward stopped suddenly and walked towards me, forcing my back against a tree.

"So you think this is funny?" He asked while staring me intensely in the eyes.

"Yes," I breathed, glancing at his lips. Our faces were only inches apart, and I could feel his breath on my face. While I was human this would have made me faint. Luckily, that had gone away after I'd become a vampire.

"You know I'll have to punish you for this, right?" His lips were almost touching mine now, teasing me.


"Oh, the things I am going to do to you tonight."

"Yes." I moaned before his lips met mine in a passionate kiss. His hands were everywhere - just like mine - in my hair, roaming my body, pressing me closer to him. There was more passion in that kiss than there had ever been in a kiss we had shared before.

We were both panting when we parted. Our eyes locked for a second, before we both took off to the house to lock ourselves in our room, and stay there until we had made up for the time we had spent apart the past days. Everything else did not matter. It was only Edward and I.

The end!
