Edit – 4/14/13 – This chapter has been edited to comply with ffnet's mature rating requirement. If you would like the full-uncut LEMON filled chapter, please message me and I will email it you. Thanks!
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is officially the last chapter of the story. So I just wanted to say sorry ahead of time if the last chapter seemed extremely fluffy or cheesy, but that's just how I wanted it. I always thought that Edward's proposal to Bella in Eclipse was just so unfulfilling and not at all right to me. Personally, I think Edward would have been the type to go all out and I wanted to do his character justice by re-writing it in my story. Hopefully you all enjoyed it and please be sure to read the ending author's note. This chapter contains some LEMONS.
This whole story was inspired by the song, "Love Will Come Through" from Travis. And this chapter was inspired by the song, "Look After You" from The Fray.
I sighed in pure happiness for what seemed like the tenth time tonight. The amazing orchestra continued to play beautiful melody after melody and we swayed along to the sound as meteors shot through the night's sky. I honestly don't remember ever feeling this content. I was going to be Mrs. Edward Anthony Masen Cullen!
Snuggling closer into Edward's strong arms, I glanced down at his watch.
"It's past midnight," I announced with a frown.
"Yeah it is. Are you tired or something? Do you want to go home?" Edward asked looking down into my eyes.
"No. It's your birthday silly," I responded swatting him playfully.
"I know," He answered with a twinkle in his eyes.
"You did this on purpose. Everything, I mean. You planned all of this. The proposal, getting me out here, making me go out to dinner to be distracted, the meteor shower-," I tried to get out.
"I didn't plan the meteor shower love," He interrupted with a smile.
"The incredible orchestra, the lights, the beautiful flower path…" I trailed off in awe.
"I had help with most of those things," He replied dismissively.
"Like Tiffany?" I asked with a raise of my eyebrow.
"Honestly, without her and Alice, nothing would have gone as planned," He admitted with a shrug.
"God, I feel so horrible. I'm going to bake her a cake," I said miserably.
"It's not your fault Bella. I was pretty secretive when it came to Tiffany, but honestly, there was no way I could have told you about her and not tip you off to my plan somehow," He reasoned brushing a stray hair behind my ear.
"You are so amazingly thoughtful. It's your birthday and it's supposed to be your day," I responded in disbelief.
"Your hand in marriage is the only present that I could ever want or need," He spoke softly to me.
I grabbed his head towards mine and kissed him deeply. Softly breaking the kiss, I rested my forehead up against his cold one.
"Take me home so I can give you your birthday present," I whispered hoarsely into the cool air.
He looked deep into my hungry eyes before nodding once and grabbing my hand to take me with him.
"Where is everyone?" I asked as we arrived in Edward's living room.
"I didn't want us to be interrupted," Edward answered walking up behind me.
"Good, because I want you all to myself," I replied turning towards him to run my hands over his chest.
Before I could move another inch, he picked me up into his arms and we were upstairs and in his bedroom in a matter of seconds.
"What about your gift?" I asked as he sat me down on his floor.
"Later," He responded before crashing his cold lips onto mine.
I completely forgot what we were talking about. All I could think about was his sweet lips upon mine. I pushed myself up against him and he growled, rubbing his firm length up against me. I grabbed at his hair, attaching myself to him anyway I could, never getting enough of him. Grabbing the back of my thighs, he lifted me up and laid me on the bed. I knew I would bruise in the morning, but I could honestly care less.
Edward hovered over me and sought out my lips. Our tongues dueled deliciously with one another before he broke it off to trail kisses down my neck. I arched up with a sigh at the feel of his cold lips against my skin. I tangled my hands in his hair once more, attaching my leg to his hip. He groaned out and in a split second, flipped me over so that I was on top. I gasped in slight shock before I began to rock back and forth on top of his pants.
"I want you so bad," He said through gritted teeth as he placed his hands on my hips.
"Then take me," I replied, lifting my hair up and grinding against him a little more.
"Fuck," He growled out before he ripped his jacket off of my shoulders.
I smiled down at him. I always loved it when he got rough and impatient. Most of the time, that meant the loss of perfectly stitched clothing. He rose up and lifted the halter strap of my dress over my head before reaching down to kiss each newly revealed piece of skin. I got up from the bed and slid the offending garment the rest of the way down and on to the floor. I saw his eyes turn black and he swallowed deeply as he took in my lacey dark blue lingerie. (Picture available in my profile)
"Are you trying to kill me?" He asked through gritted teeth as he eyes looked up and down my body.
"Never, this is just part one of your birthday present," I replied with a wink as I walked back to the bed.
"Well to hell with part two then," He responded as he tried to grab me up to him.
I stepped back a little away from him. A quick frown of frustration adorned his face.
"Very flattering baby. Now be a good boy and let me do what I want," I scolded playfully.
I stepped back to him and bent down on my knees before him, reaching up for his belt. He tried to help me relieve him, but I swatted his hands away. He pouted down at me and I laughed for a few seconds before I was finally able to take his belt off and unzip his jeans. I started pulling them down and he lifted up to help me. I quickly began rubbing him through his briefs and looked up in time to see his eyes roll to the back of his head. I reached up and pulled his underwear all the way down his legs and his huge member sprang up to life. I licked my lips in anticipation.
I placed a hand on the base of his cool erection and it twitched in my hand.
"Excited to see me are you?" I asked playfully.
"Always," He answered staring down at my hand on his member.
"That's what I like to hear," I said before turning my attention back to the task at hand.
I placed my other hand above the one currently working his shaft. I gently made a twisting motion with my hands. He groaned out and gripped his bed sheets…
I especially liked it after we made love when his cold body lay across my overheated one. He kissed my forehead and I sighed in content. He rolled over and pulled me closer to him so that he could spoon me. He brushed the hair back from my sweat stricken face.
"Don't you want to know what part two of your gift is?" I asked as I snuggled up closer against him.
"I would do the whole Bella you really don't have to shpill, but I know that won't work on you," He announced with a sigh as he ran his fingertips along my warm skin.
"Nope," I agreed with a smile.
"So, of course I would like to see it," He said in mock defeat.
"Close your eyes," I announced as I moved to get out of the bed.
"Well if it requires you leaving me, I don't want it anymore," He said as he gripped me closer to him.
"Edward," I scolded, fluttering my eyelashes at him playfully.
"Fine," He responded as he slowly took his arms off of me.
"Close your eyes," I repeated as I stepped away from the bed. I moved across the room and to his closet. "Alice told me that she took this back with her and hid it in here for me earlier while you were out," I said searching in the back for the wrapped box. I turned back around with it in my hands to see Edward's eyes fully open. "Edward," I scolded again as I stopped just before the bed.
"Bella, you know I can't resist looking at your beautifully naked body. If it makes you feel any better, I did close my eyes for exactly three seconds," He said, putting his hands in the air in a defensive gesture.
"No it doesn't, but because it's your birthday. I will let this one slide," I replied as I sat down on the bed next to him. "Here," I said placing the box in his hands.
He smiled at me and delicately unwrapped the box. I wanted to roll my eyes at the gesture, but I let him have his moment. After the wrapping paper was off, he sat it down next to him and opened the box. He reached inside and held up a medium sized oval gold locket with an intricate design on the front. He then opened the locket to see two pictures contained inside it. One of me as a little girl and an old photograph of him as a child with beautiful green eyes. He held the locket in his hand and ran his fingers over the pictures. He swallowed deeply and stopped breathing. (A picture of the locket is located in my profile)
"How did you…?" He trailed off in a hushed tone.
"Well, the embarrassing picture of me was pretty easy to find as you can imagine. The one of you on the other hand, was incredibly difficult. I asked Alice to help me. I searched online for some old records and she said that she knew someone who knew someone and they knew someone and eventually, a picture turned up. It has your name and your age on the back of it too. You were six years old, the same age as me in that picture. It looks like a woman's handwriting on the back of it," I said slightly nervous.
"Did you find any other photos?" He asked softly, refusing to look up from the picture.
"No, sorry. We tried, but we couldn't find anymore. It was extremely difficult to find this one. You looked so adorable. I just thought it would be nice for you to have something of you and me together like this. Do you like it? If you don't, that's okay too…" I trailed off biting my lip.
"It's incredible Bella. Thank you so much. I absolutely love it. You don't know how much I appreciate this," He answered, finally looking up into my eyes.
"You're welcome," I responded, letting out a breath that I didn't even know I was holding.
"You are very sneaky you know that? This whole time I was trying to hide information from you and here you were, sliding one past me," He said with a shake of his head in disbelief.
"I am pretty amazing aren't I?" I asked playfully.
"Yes, you are. I love you," He said seriously as he took my hand and placed a kiss on my finger with the engagement ring on it.
"I love you too. Always and forever," I replied with a smile.
He reached over to kiss me and pulled me into his arms for a hug. God did I love this man and to believe that I was actually going to spend the rest of my life with him was truly extraordinary. I didn't need anything else. Edward is and will always be my heaven.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Yes, this is truly the end of the story. I am more than positive that there will not be a trilogy to this one unless I am asked very nicely, lolz. I hope that you all enjoyed the story as well as the ending. It was very difficult for me to find a present for Edward let me tell you! Hopefully I pulled that one off too. Now, I have actually written this last chapter in Edward's POV as well.
