I had lived in the small, rainy town of Forks my entire life. Nothing ever happened here. Well, not enough to make me want to stick around anyway. So as graduation approached I had one thing, and one thing only on my mind; party like a rock star, as best as we knew how, before I left this crap-hole of a town.

As much as I wanted to stick around for my dad, the fact was Forks would hold me back from everything in life. My life here really wasn't that bad. I had the greatest friends in the world; "The Sovereign Six" as we were most notably called and a boyfriend who would give me the world on a silver platter if I would let him.

But I couldn't stand to see myself end up like every other woman in this town, specifically my mother. Unfortunately, she realized a little too late that the Forks' way of life wasn't for her and she bolted on my dad and me a few years back. As to where she was now, only she and the man of the month knew. She had always been an adventurist and Forks had not held it for her. Apparently, neither did my dad or me.

So instead of realizing this in my late thirties, I decided to take action now while was still young and could get away with erratic behavior. My dad understood my desire to leave this sleepy town. The Sovereign Six not so much. They really had no reason to be upset with me. It seemed we all shared the same desire to leave. But in the back of our minds, I think we all thought that we'd leave together. None of us expected we would end up all around the world, so far away from each other.

And I think deep down, we all expected to end up back together. But I guess only time wouldl tell. For now, my only thought wasn't about catching the first plane out of here; it was about spending the last night of my high school existence with the greatest people in Forks, Washington.


Chapter 1


By: Better than Ezra

Bella's POV

May 1998

"So are we going out with a bang or what bitches?" I heard Rosalie call from the bedroom.

"Ka-Pow!" Alice screeched from the bathroom all the while laughing hysterically.

They were my best girlfriends in the world. Rosalie could give any cover girl model a run for their money and after tonight that's just what she intended to do. Alice was off to Paris to intern with Vogue. I knew one day she'd be running that magazine, or at least running what the models were wearing.

I looked at Alice as she teased and sprayed my hair with hairspray. "This is my graduation present to you, Alice. I'm letting you have your way with me so that we can all leave the loser-fest of boys that are staying in Forks a lasting impression of us."

"Speak for yourself honey. These boys are going to have my centerfold hanging in their bedrooms once I land myself the cover of Maxim," Rosalie smirked as she walked into the bathroom to finish up her own hair and make-up.

"The loser-fest of boys huh, or my dear brother, Bella?" Alice questionably asked while she applied the last of my make-up.

"Oh, I intend on leaving your brother with a worthwhile lasting impression, Alice. Much more than any outfit, or great hair and make-up could do. No offense though."

"None taken. Now if I do say so myself, we are some hot bitches."

We all laughed in unison and even though I'd never admit it to her or Rosalie, I knew she was right. This town would be talking about us for a long time. Forever if we had anything to do with it.

"Girls, are you about done?" Emmett yelled from downstairs. "Mom wants to get a few pictures of us before the party starts."

"Be right down," we all shouted at the same time.

I was going to miss this, this bond the three of us had. We practically finished each other's sentences and knew what the other one thought or felt most of the time. I guess that's what happened when you've been friends since kindergarten.

And at that moment, I knew they were thinking the exact same thing. We embraced each other in a three person hug and just stood there and savored the moment.

"Okay, no crying," Alice chirped. "We look too good to go down there with red eyes and blotches from our tears."

"Well, let's head downstairs before they get all pissy," I said with a chuckle.

Emmett was Alice's older brother. In his eighth grade year he convinced his parents to hold him back so he could get an extra year of football in. That's what he had told everyone but in reality he had fallen behind in a few subjects so the Cullens thought it would be a good idea to hold him back with his other two siblings, in hopes that one of them might steer Emmett into a more academic light.

But football had always been Emmett's passion. Well, that and Rosalie. They had practically been inseparable since his second go round of the eighth grade. I wasn't sure how they were going to fare when Emmett went off to college in Florida, on a full ride scholarship to play football while Rosalie moved to Los Angeles.

Rosalie had been "discovered" in a shopping mall in Seattle and was set to leave for LA to begin her modeling career. There was no doubt we were going to see her face everywhere.

We began our way down the hall to the grand staircase when Alice took both of our hands and gripped them so that we would stop.

"Alice, what's wrong?" I asked.

"I just wanted to say that I love you both and I know we said we wouldn't cry, but I can't help but feel overcome with emotion right now. You are both my sisters and no amount of distance will ever change that."

"Is this your idea of a pep talk, Alice?" Rose questioned. "I thought maybe you were about to tell us to strut it like we own it, flaunt it because we've got it and smile so that people will wonder what we're up to."

I couldn't help but giggle. Tonight was supposed to be about us letting loose for one more night and tomorrow we would worry about the sappy good-byes.

"What's so funny, Swan?" Alice asked with a glimmer of hurt in her eyes.

"Nothing Alice. Rose is right though. Let's do exactly what she said and save all the tearful good-byes for tomorrow. Tonight's about getting crazy and showing this podunk town what it's going to be missing."

"You two are impossible. Okay, fine. But don't get your panties in a wad when I don't get all sentimental tomorrow."

Rose and I laughed because we knew Alice better than that. There was no way she wasn't going to be a blubbering cry fest tomorrow.

But Rose being Rose had to get the last word in. "Oh, Alice. It will be impossible for me to get my panties in a wad seeing as how I'm not wearing any."

"TMI!" Alice screamed.

"What," asked Rosalie. "It's Emmett's graduation present."

We laughed and hugged one another before we made our way down the stairs.

"It's about time," Emmett yelled, "what took so long?"

A smile spread across my face as I said, "Oh, Rosalie was just telling us about the graduation present she has for you."

"Or lack there of," Alice mumbled loud enough for only us girls to hear.

"Well, let's get this show on the road," Carlisle, the Cullen patriarch said as he handed his wife Esme the camera.

I noticed we were short two of our little six pack. But just as I began to ask where they were, the most graceful set of arms wrapped around me waist.

"I'm not sure how much socializing you and I are going to be doing tonight. I might have to keep us locked in my room all night." Edward whispered in my ear.

I sighed as I pulled his arms tighter around my waist.

"Why, Edward Cullen, are you suggesting that we be rude and not send the town of Forks off without a proper good-bye?"

He huffed into my neck. "I could give two shits about the people in this town. There is only one person and one proper good-bye I am concerned with."

I turned to face him, my arms wrapped around his neck. This was going to be the hardest goodbye to give. Edward and I had begun dating our freshman year of high school. I had known him practically my entire life seeing as how he was my best friend's brother.

Growing up it felt like Edward was more like a brother to me. He and Emmett had always looked out for me, just as they did for their own sister. But once puberty hit we both looked at each other in a different light. He asked me to the homecoming dance our freshman year and that was the beginning of our relationship.

I guess like Emmett and Rosalie, we were just as inseparable. Of course, that would no longer be the case come tomorrow. Edward was off to Dartmouth to study music and I was headed to the state capitol of Louisiana, the big city of Baton Rouge to attend LSU and study history.

No one understood why I had chosen LSU and to be honest, neither did I. I knew I had to get out of Forks and the only solution I could come up to choose a college was to close my eyes and point blindly at a map of all fifty states. When I opened my eyes my finger was on Baton Rouge. I figured it might not be all-bad. It would be a definite change of scenery.

As I faced my Edward, getting lost in his emerald green eyes, I whispered into his ear "Oh you'll get your proper good-bye that I can promise you."

He smiled as he picked me up to twirl me around and kissed me as if we were the only two people in the room.

"Ah hem," Carlisle croaked as Edward set me down.

"Sorry, Dad. I just got caught up in the moment."

"Right, okay well is everyone here?"

I looked around and noticed we were still short one.

"I'm here. Sorry it took me so long," Jasper panted as he ran into the living room.

"Why are you out of breath bro?" Emmett asked.

I had to be honest, I was a little curious myself. It wasn't like Jasper to look so disheveled.

"I've been running all over town trying to pick up Alice's graduation present. The place I ordered it from hadn't received it back from where they sent it off to so I tracked them down. They had already shipped it back to the original place I had ordered it from. So to make a long story short..."

"Too late," Rosalie, Emmett, Edward, and I said in unison.

Jasper looked half annoyed as he said, "I had to drive to the UPS store in Port Angeles where it was still being held to ship. But here I am, out of breath from running up the driveway, with Alice's gift and ready for pictures or whatever you all are waiting on me for."

"Oh, Jazz. I can't wait to see what it is. We'll exchange gifts later on tonight in private" she added last part in just barely a whisper.

Alice and Jasper had the most unique relationship out of all of us and no doubt, it was going to be the hardest for them to tell each other good-bye.

On the first day of kindergarten he walked into our classroom and Alice started tugging on my arm exclaiming, "He's going to be my boyfriend."

At the time I thought eeww gross boys are yucky, but Alice had been smitten. And she was right; from that day forward he was her boyfriend.

Jasper and Rosalie were twins and he would be following his sister to LA. While she was doing her modeling, he planned to attend USC. His major was still unknown; he said he'd figure it out once he got there.

We all grouped together and Esme began snapping away. We did family pictures (Rosalie and Jasper, The Cullen clan), couple pictures and a few of the whole group.

"The Sovereign Six" was the name we had given our little six pack. Over time we got sick of being referred to as The Cullen kids, the Hale twins and the Swan girl. It had kind of made me feel a little left out. But anytime we were mentioned as a group that was what we were called. So we had come up with a name, or rather Edward did, and it stuck among everyone.

It took some time to explain to Emmett what the word sovereign meant but once we laid it out in Emmett terms he loved it.

We stood in the Cullens' living room and waited for the rest of our classmates to arrive. Carlisle and Esme were letting us throw an end of the year party with no adult supervision. Well, almost none, they were going to be upstairs the whole time but promised not to bother us. It was their graduation present to all of us.

I looked around at all of my best friends and knew that this would be our last night together. I was having an Alice moment from earlier and was overcome with emotion. Just as I started to feel my eyes swell up with tears, Emmett turned and looked at Edward and Jasper with the biggest shit eating grin and stated, "You boys ready to rock out with your cocks out?"

They all nodded and fist bumped one another as we girls rolled our eyes. But not to be outdone Rosalie looked at Alice and me and stated mater of factly, "Let's party like rock stars bitches."

Yeah, those two were so made for one another.


People flowed into the house and the party was soon underway. Carlisle and Esme arranged the most amazing buffet of food for us and all of our guests. If the entire 1998 graduating class had not been present at the party they would have let us have alcohol. Carlisle and Esme didn't mind if we drank, as long as we all stayed the night at their house. But since we had a house full of 17 and 18 year olds, alcohol with their knowledge was out of the question. But that didn't stop us from engaging in a little alcohol consumption.

Leave it to Emmett to make sure the beer and wine coolers flowed from hand to hand.

Everyone talked about heading off to college. I decided I still wasn't ready to face the music so I opted to engage my better half with his, well our, going away present.

I found Edward in conversation with Mike, Tyler and Eric. Those three were better known as the three stooges. It wasn't a huge secret that Mike had had a thing for me for as long as I can remember but the feelings were never mutual. All three had decided to stay behind in Forks and attend the community college. Yeah, they were really going somewhere.

Speaking of going somewhere, I was about to take Edward to our secret make out place. Yeah, we have one of those. The Cullens had built a gigantic tree house in their backyard for Edward and Emmett. I can't recall how many times they told me and Alice we weren't allowed in. It was the He-Man Woman Hater's club. Original I know. But one weekend, the Cullen boys were out of town and Esme allowed Alice and me to play in it. I'll never forget the look on their faces when they came home and found the place, head to toe in pink. Alice and I, well mainly Alice, had given the tree house a complete makeover. She had said, in her small eight-year-old voice that it needed to be spruced up. Emmett had been furious! He all but told her that she was the most annoying little thing on the planet and vowed never to leave Forks again, afraid of what she might do next.

Well, when I say it was gigantic I'm not exaggerating. It had one big room in the center and two other rooms on each side of the great room. Once Alice and I were accepted into the clubhouse, each room was decorated for the taste and style of one of the Cullen siblings. As the years progressed I hardly hung out in Alice's room. I tended to drift to Edward's.

After my mom left, I ran away from home for two days. No one knew where I went, except Edward. Charlie, my dad, had called over to the Cullens house and explained what had happened and asked them to be on the lookout for me. He knew that if he couldn't find me at home that nine times out of ten I was at their house. When they explained to Charlie that they hadn't seen me, Edward slipped out of the house and climbed up the ladder to the tree house. He really did know me better than anyone and he knew that I would be there, hiding out. And sure enough, he didn't tell anyone where I was until I was ready to go home and face the fact that my mother had left.

He took hell from his parents when we both emerged from the tree house on a Sunday afternoon, and I got just as much hell from Charlie for worrying him sick. I have to admit though, that was probably the best and worst weekend of my life. It was the worst for obvious reasons but the best because that was when Edward and I took our physical relationship to the next level. Even though it wasn't the full act of sex, we definitely knew each other's bodies perfectly well after that weekend.

So here I was about to pry Edward away from Larry, Moe, and Curly so that we could send each other off with proper good-byes in the place where everything started.

"Hey guys!" I interjected into their conversation.

"Hey, Bella, wow you look really nice tonight," Mike said as Eric and Tyler nodded along in agreement.

"Nice? I'm not sure I would use that word Mike. I think hotter than a two dollar pistol fits my Bella right about now," Edward said as he stared into my eyes, giving me my favorite crooked smile.

"Well, I wasn't sure how you would take to me calling your girlfriend hot, Edward. I mean, she still is your girlfriend right?" Mike asked with an expression of hopefulness in his eyes.

"Thank you, Mike and yes, I'm still Edward's girlfriend," I said not breaking eye contact with Edward.

"Oh I just thought that since you were both leaving tomorrow, you know, going your separate ways, that maybe you had already broken up." Mike was cutoff mid-sentence by Edward's laugh.

"Seriously, Mike? Not a chance man. I'm going to savor every second I have with Bella before we leave."

"Yeah right. My bad."

"Well, if you would excuse us, Edward and I haven't exchanged our graduation presents yet. And I see no time like the present to do so."

"Oh yeah right, well if we don't get to talk to you before tomorrow, Bella, have fun in Baton Rouge."

"Sure, Sure," I mumbled.

"Hot huh?" I asked Edward as we made our way outside.

"Should I have said something more like, you look unfucking believable?" Edward questioned pulling me towards him in an embrace. "Because that's how I really feel."

"No, hot works. Besides, if you would have said the other they might be able to feel the sexual tension I'm radiating right now."

Edward laughed as we began to make our way up to "our room" in the tree house. It was far enough away from the main house so that no one could see us, but we could still see everything that was happening below.

Edward and I had agreed that we wouldn't go all out on each other's graduation/going away gifts. I had noticed he had already come up to the tree house because it was decorated in tea light candles. My gift was lying on the table.

"Is that mine?" I asked not wanting to seem too eager to see what it was.

"Yes," he said just barely above a whisper.

"Well, can I open it?"

"Of course. But don't be upset. Remember we promised we wouldn't go all out."

"Don't be silly. I'm sure if I know you like I'm pretty sure that I do then you went above and beyond anything I could have done," I said as I winked at him.

He handed me the beautifully wrapped box. It was so delicate. The paper was too pretty to just rip off. It had been wrapped in my favorite color, Tiffany Blue. He knew me all too well. When I opened the box I found a simple, elegant book underneath the tissue paper.

"Edward, it's beautiful. Thank you."

"Open it," he stated.

I opened the book as he requested to find that it was a journal. The first page had already been filled in.

I, Edward Anthony Masen Cullen, do here by swear that for the rest of my life I will not love another woman the way that I love Isabella Marie Swan. She is my life and all that completes me.

I looked up at him and couldn't help but not be corny.

"You complete me " I said in my best Tom Cruise impression from Jerry Maguire.

"Keep reading." He said as he laughed at me.

I also swear to NEVER and I repeat, NEVER consummate a relationship with anyone until Bella and I can be together for all eternity. She is my everything and I want to experience the most intimate of all acts with her and only her.

No amount of distance or time will ever change how much I love you and one day I know we will end up together in our happily ever after.

I reached up and pulled him into my arms. I felt tears running down my cheeks as he took my face in his hands.

"I meant every word of that, Bella. Know that you are the only woman for me, ever."

"I know, I feel the exact same way," I said as I wiped the tears away.

I don't know how I knew, but in that moment I knew that no one would ever live up to what Edward was in my mind. I knew that when I made my journey into college that I would constantly compare any guy that I dated to him. And I was okay with that. I also knew that I would make the same promise to Edward. No one but him would ever have that sacred piece of me, my virginity. Our virginity would be the one thing that we would save for each other.

I pulled away from our embrace and laughed.

"What's so funny Bella?" Edward asked looking puzzled.

"It's nothing, just let me go get your gift. I'll be right back."

I walked into the great room of the tree house and looked underneath the creaky old floorboard where, when we were younger, Emmett hid his Playboy's. Alice had come up here earlier in the day with me to hide Edward's present. I laughed to myself because Edward and I were too much alike for our own good.

"Okay, before you open this just know that I had no idea what you were getting me."

"That's good to know considering I didn't tell anyone, not even Alice. So unless you're a mind reader there would have been no way for you to know."

"Well, just open it, you'll see why."

He slowly and carefully tore the wrapping paper from the box and lifted off the lid. He pushed aside the tissue paper from within and looked up at me with a grin that reached all the way up to his eyes.

"I can't believe it. How... how did this happen?" he asked with a huge grin plastered on his face.

"I guess great minds think alike. But there is one difference between the two that I need to correct."

I looked around for a pen and found one next to Edward's sheet music. I held out my hand for the journal that I had just given him.

"Wait just one second, missy." Edward held the journal to his chest not letting go. He opened the book and found that I had written a similar note to his inside.

I, Isabella Marie Swan, promise to never love anyone as much as I love Edward Anthony Masen Cullen. He is my entire world and even though we are going to be miles apart, my heart will always be with him.

"Bella, I don't know what to say. Thank you so much," he said as he looked up at me.

"May I see it? I need to add something."

I took the journal from him and underneath my note from earlier I wrote:

I also vow to never, and I repeat, never consummate a relationship with anyone until I can fully give myself to Edward. My heart has and always will belong to him and eventually so will my entire body. No one will ever compare to you.

I love you.

I handed him back his gift and if it were possible, his smile got even wider.

"Nothing compares to you," he said in his best Sinead O'Conner impression.

"Okay ass," I playfully said as I acted like I was hitting his arm. He grabbed my hand and pulled me tightly to his chest.

"You are the only reason I would consider staying," I said as I looked up into his eyes.

"I know. Me too."

Then his lips were on mine and his hands were caressing my back. I let out a soft moan as his tongue parted my lips and began exploring my mouth. I pulled my hands up and let them fall into his unruly bronze hair. A soft moan escaped his lips as I began tugging his hair lightly. My head fell back slightly and he began placing delicate kisses all the way down my neck to the deep V that the shirt I was wearing created along my chest. His hands shifted to my lower back and he began to lift my shirt off of me. I noticed that my hands were tugging harder in his hair and I knew he didn't mind.

As his hands began making their way up my bare back I moved my own down from his hair to mirror his actions. He removed my shirt to reveal my white cotton bra. I've never been one for kinky lingerie; I'm only eighteen for crying out loud. But none the less, I felt sexy just from Edward's soft touches.

As he was kneading my breasts, still covered by my bra and placed kisses all along my jaw line, I began to lift his own shirt over his head, revealing his all too perfect chest. I let my fingers trace a figure eight along his torso marveling in his beauty. I looked up at him and he took me in an all too intense kiss. My breathing began to pick up as he reached around my back to unclasp my bra. In one swift movement of my arms, my bra fell and revealed to him what he was desperately after. I tossed my bra aside and leaned my head back, running my fingers through his hair as he took my left nipple into his mouth, flicking it ever so gently with his tongue. I could feel the heat and wetness that penetrated through my cotton panties. I wanted him so badly but I knew making love to Edward tonight would make it that much harder to say goodbye tomorrow.

He removed his mouth from my breast and placed his hands on my hips pushing my skirt down to my ankles. I stepped out of the pool of clothing at my feet and kicked my skirt lightly into the pile of discarded clothes. He ran his hands down my hips to my thighs as he got on his knees.

"What the hell?" Edward asked looking confused but quite pleased.

"Do you like it?"

I was so caught up in the moment I had forgotten about his other gift. A few weeks ago, while shopping with Alice and Rosalie, I stopped and went into Victoria's Secret and picked up a pair of plain white cotton panties and had them embroidered with Edward's name on the front.

"Do I like them? I love them! But you know you're not getting these back?"

"That was the point. The journal was your graduation gift; these are your going away gift."

He slipped his fingers on both sides of the elastic band and carefully slid them down my legs. Holding onto his shoulders for support, I stepped out of them and watched him fold them neatly and put them in his pocket.

He took my hand and led me over to the futon couch against the wall.

"Lie down for me," he whispered.

I did as he said as he as he ran his hands up my legs, caressing my thighs until he found my breasts. He tweaked my pert nipples between his thumbs and placed kisses along the swells of my breasts, up my neck and across my jaw line before he sucked my bottom lip into his mouth.

I ran my hands through his hair as I let a moan escape from my lips. Once my bottom lip was in his mouth I pulled my hands from his hair and placed them on either side of his face bringing him more to my eye level. I ran my tongue along his upper lip before placing it into his mouth. For what seemed like hours, even though only a few minutes had passed, our tongues intertwined with one another.

He slowly made his way back down my body until his head was between my legs. I cocked one leg up to give him better access. He teasingly kissed my bikini line and along my pubic bone. I knew he could feel the heat I was putting off and I couldn't have him wait any longer.

"Edward, please?" It came out as more of a question than a plea.

He took his index finger and his middle finger and pushed my wet folds apart, allowing his tongue to stroke me. My hands were twisted in his hair and my back arched at the sensation of his tongue licking me.

"Yes baby, just like that. Ugh, I need more," I gasped out between breaths.

He took the two fingers he was using to keep my center open and gently glided them into me. I tugged at his hair harder and I could feel that my back was no longer on the sofa. His tongue was massaged my clit as his fingers were pumped in and out of me.

"Oh God, Edward, I'm not going to last much longer! It feels so good. Please don't stop."

He moved his tongue away and replaced it with his thumb, keeping pace with the two fingers that were already working me.

"Bella, I want you to cum in my mouth. I want to savor your sweet juices."

I could barely form a coherent thought so I did good to nod my head at his request. His tongue returned to my clit and resumed licking my pussy. I was pushed over the edge when the licking became sucking.

"Oh, Edward... Oh...oOh, I'm cumming baby. UGH- YES! Oh God, yes," I screamed as my thighs clamped around his face.

He swiped his tongue one last time through my slick folds and I knew that he had done that for his own benefit. He truly was savoring my juices.

I realized that my hands were fisted in his hair but I used that to my advantage to pull him back up to me. I kissed him passionately on the mouth telling him without words how much I loved him. But it wasn't enough I needed to say it out loud.

"I love you," I breathed into his mouth between kisses, "but now, it's your turn."

I pulled myself up using his chest as support and laid him down at the opposite end of the couch from where I had just been. I straddled him and began to undo his belt as he helped me take his pants off. I got up and tossed them over to the where the rest of our clothes were. He pushed himself up off the couch to take his boxers off but I put a hand out to stop him.

"No, let me do that," I interjected.

He had a look of pure love mixed with lust in his eyes as I realized for the first time the only thing I was wearing were my shoes. I felt the blush form in my cheeks. We had seen each other like this before, several times, but my blushing never ceased.

He walked over to me and took my hand in his.

"You don't know how much I am going to miss this," he said as he brushed his hands along my cheek.

I brought my hands down to the waistband of his boxers and slowly slid them off. I gently pushed him back towards the couch and gestured for him to lie down. As he laid his head back against the couch I positioned myself over him running my hands over his pecs. I leaned my head towards his and pushed his lips apart with my tongue, exploring the inside of his mouth. His fingertips were on my back and he moved them up and down my spine. I grazed my tongue from his mouth over to his ear and traced the folds of his ear before taking the lobe in my mouth with a quick pinch. He moaned at the contact and dug his fingers into my back.

"I'll never love anyone the way I love you, Edward Cullen," I whispered into his ear.

He cupped my face into his hands and pulled me closer to him, kissing me ferociously. I could feel his erection against my stomach.

"You will always be the only one for me, My Bella."

I snaked my way down his body until I was face to face with his member. I gripped it in my hand and with my thumb I lubed the tip of his penis with his pre cum. With a simple toss of my hair I let it all fall to one side of my neck as I made my way down to engulf his cock into my mouth. I began to move up and down, as I used the hand that gripped him, to pump his hard erection.

"Fuck, Bella. That's feels so good."

I opened my throat and allowed his entire length to fully occupy my mouth. His hands were now fisted into my hair as he started thrusting against my mouth. Using the hand that was stroking him, I cupped his balls and squeezed.

"Holy shit baby. Don't stop whatever you do. I'm so close, please don't stop."

I could feel that his release was close. His cock got harder in my mouth, if that were possible. He thrust his pelvis up and I could practically feel him at the back of my throat. I continued to move my mouth up and down taking every opportunity to suck on his tip.

That did him in. "Ugh, Bella, I'm cumming, oh God yes, yes baby, oh yesssss!"

His body tightened as his cum ran down my throat. He released the grip he had on my hair and I moved my mouth up his cock one last time and sucked the tip of his penis. Like him, I also wanted to savor his juices.

"Wow. That was amazing," he gasped out "I love you."

"I love you too," I replied as I smiled and looked at him seeing nothing but love in his green eyes.

We laid there for a few more minutes before we got dressed and headed back to our guests. As we made our way back towards the house, Edward squeezed my hand in his and I turned to look at him.

"What's wrong baby?"

"I don't want to walk back in there and put on a fake smile, pretending I'm going to miss any of them. The only person who matters at all to me is you and I want to spend the rest of the night just being with you."

"I know exactly what you mean. But don't you think it might be kind of wrong of us to hide out in the tree house all night?" I questioned him, but I already knew is answer. He saw nothing wrong in that at all. Just then we heard two sets of footsteps as they came walking up to us.

"There you two are," Alice huffed. "Every one's been asking about you."

"Well, you found us Alice," Edward replied, a little put out.

"Everyone left like an hour ago and the two of you were no where to be found for anyone to tell you bye," she continued on.

"Everyone's gone?" I found it hard to believe a bunch of teenagers would leave a party before midnight.

"Well seeing as how you two have been up in the tree for the last two and a half hours," Jasper piped in.

Edward and I looked at one another dumbfounded. Had we really been gone for two and half-hours? It had only seemed like an hour at the most.

"Where are Emmett and Rose?" I asked still not believing that the party was suddenly over.

Just then another pair of footsteps made their way over to us.

"Right here," Emmett called. "Man, I can't believe everyone just bolted like that."

"Well none of us were exactly the most gracious hosts and hostesses. I can't say I blame them, and then again, I can't say I really mind either," Alice proclaimed.

I was confused and apparently Jasper sensed my mood. "We all took off in separate directions, the six of us that is, and pretty much abandoned the party to spend time with our better halves," he spoke softly.

"Oh," was all I could get out.

"Well, no matter, you five are the only ones I really want to spend my last night with," Emmett began saying, "unless Rose is up for round three?"

"Settle down there big guy. I was just thinking how it would nice if we all camped out in the tree house, like we used to," Rosalie said holding onto Emmett's arm, glancing around to get a reaction out of the rest of us.

"I can't see any better way to spend my last night in Forks," I said cheerfully. Jasper, Alice, and Edward all nodded in agreement.

So the six of us made our way over to the tree house, the place where so many good memories were made. Now it was going to be the last place "The Sovereign Six" would spend together.

For now.
