A/N: Sorry for taking so long to update. I had this written for Valentine's, but my husband took me on a romantic getaway for the week, and well it was a surprise. I had no forewarning or else I would have grabbed the laptop before we took off, but apparently my husband thought of everything because he even took my phone from me. So here I am, just back from our mini vaca, and I just had to get this to you. I hope you enjoy it. Just a little fluff. Thanks for reading and reviewing. I am getting a better reponse to this story than I ever thought possible.
Disclaimer: I so not own the characters, but the plot is mine.
When I woke up this morning, I felt the strong arms of my angel encasing me, and I felt safe and protected. I know now that I do not have to worry too much about being actually hurt, but with Alice and her family around I know that they will lay down their lives for me. I do not know if I like this though. I do not like the thought of one of them dying because of some prophecy that is my life. I will protect them with everything I have. I will fight for the Cullen's and they will live.
Alice and I went downstairs to see that Edward was here. I do not know what to make of it so I ignored him for the most part. No need to get angry. I do not want to harm anyone with this fire thing. Eleazar took one look at me, and well it looked like he had seen a ghost. Apparently there is one in his family that I look a lot like her. Kate. She could be my three great grandmother. Weird, I do think so. We will find out when she comes with the rest of her family. They will be here in the next couple of days.
After all of this Edward wanted to talk to me. I honestly did not know what to expect, but Alice reassured me that it would be alright, what with her now able to tell my future. I believed her, not because of the visions, but because I love and trust her, and she would never send me to the wolves so to speak.
Edward and I talked, he apologized, and I decided that he is really sorry for his actions, so I forgave him. I did tell him though that to earn my respect and trust he is going to have to prove himself to be an honorable guy. I hope he can prove himself because I can see being good friends with him. Not like Jasper who is like the best best friend ever, but maybe more like in a brotherly way. Time will tell.
While Edward and I talked, my Angel cooked me breakfast. I sat down at the bar in the kitchen and ate the delicious pancakes that she made me, and we talked about what we wanted to do today, we decided that we would go ahead and go shopping like we planned. Get out of the craziness that seems to be out lives at the moment. Right now though I am thinking it was a bad idea to go shopping with Alice, I think it is going to be more overwhelming than all the information that I had thrown at me yesterday, but if it makes my angel happy, well I will deny her nothing. I love her, and I will spend eternity with her, but I so want to take this relationship to the next level, but it would seem that our lives are to be dictated by this prophecy. I just want a normal life, well as normal as it can get with a vampire girlfriend.
Said vampire girlfriend right now is vibrating in the driver's seat of her Porsche. I do believe I am truly scared at the moment. What did I get myself into?
"Angel, you are vibrating so much right now, I am kind of afraid that you are going to bounce right out of the car." I placed my hand on her thigh to see if I could calm her, if only a fraction.
"Bella I am just so excited to go shopping. Especially excited since you are going with me, I want to do everything with you. I want to share all of myself with you Babe."
Awww. I love this vampire girl.
"I love you Alice."
"I love you too Bella. More than I ever thought possible."
We have now been in the Port Angeles mall for over two hours. I love spending time with Alice, and I love shopping, but now I think I am questioning the two. If I am going to make it out alive I am going to have to decide what I love more, Alice or shopping?
"Are you seriously debating if you love me or shopping more? How could you?"
"What?" Yeah real eloquent there.
"I have had two visions in the span of thirty seconds. One where you tell me that you cannot let me interfere with your shopping anymore, so you break up with me, and the other is of basically the same, but you say I can no longer shop with you. I am completely devastated by this babe. You don't want to shop with me anymore."
Ah shit. "Angel, I wasn't being totally serious in my thoughts. That is all it was was a thought. I love you and I could never leave you because of shopping. Yes the thought of what I love more crossed my mind, but nothing could ever compare to love I have for you, nothing. I will prove that to you one day. Now we have been at this for two hours straight, I want to sit down and relax for a moment or two. Why don't you go and see if you can find anything for me at Victoria's Secret? I will sit here and wait for your return, be sure and pick some stuff out for yourself. I cannot wait to see you in some sexy lingerie. I love you."
"Yes. Yes. That will be good. It can be a surprise for you to see me in what I want to buy. Good call babe. Why don't we meet in the food court in an hour? You can get some food while you wait for me. I love you too."
And with that she was gone, luckily not with vampire speed, but with the way she was bouncing she was almost a blur. I love my vampire pixie. Now what to do with my hour of freedom. First I want to block Alice from my future in case I want to buy something for her, as I window shop on my way to the food court.
I glanced in the window of Kay's and on display was the perfect thing that I wanted to get my Angel. It will look perfect on her, I just know it. I have to get it for her, I do not care of the price at the moment. Any price is not enough to catalogue the love I have for her.
"What can I help you with today?" The clerk at the counter asked.
"I saw something in the window display that I would like to get my girlfriend." Bonus points for the clerk because she didn't even bat an eyelash at the word girlfriend.
"That will be no problem, just show me what you would like to look at."
I pointed to the perfect piece of jewelry, "That right there. I know it will be perfect."
"It is one of our finest pieces. Shall I box it for you then?"
I was just walking into Victoria's Secret when Bella's future went blank on me. I would be scared if it wasn't for the fact that she can do that to me. It kind of irks me because she will forever be the one to be able to surprise me, but if I were being truthful, I kind of like the idea. Maybe she saw something she wanted to buy me and didn't want me to know about it quite yet. I will find out soon enough I just have to be patient.
I found several pieces that I know I want to see Bella in. Oh I cannot wait until we can consummate this relationship, she is just too damn sexy for her own good, and mine. Poor Jasper is going to get the brunt of this because he is both of our best friends. At least he cannot feel Bella's emotions, that should make it easier on the poor guy.
I wish that Bella would have come in here with me, I would love to see some of this stuff on her now, but she did have a good point that it will me much more fun without her knowing what I am buying. I know I got a little too carried away today, but dammit, my two loves, shopping and Bella all rolled into one, well it was all a little over whelming. I can see where she is coming from, especially since she does not have the stamina of a vampire, even if she can take one out just thinking about it.
I finally got everything I wanted from the store, and I have to meet Bella at the food court in 15 minutes, so I started on my way, just looking through the windows of some shops when I saw the perfect thing for my Bella. It will look perfect on her. I walked into the store.
"Welcome to Kay's. What can I help you with today?"
"There is something in the display that I would like to get my girlfriend."
The clerk walked over to me, and asked me to point to the one I wanted. I did.
"This display seems to be a big hit today, you are the second person within the hour to ask something from it. I hope your girlfriends enjoys it." She said while putting it into a box.
"I cannot be certain that she will, but I do know that it will look perfect on her."
I just finished my sandwich from Subway when Alice walked up to the table I was sitting at. I couldn't help but smile at her, she has brought a light into my life that was never there before, which is why she is my angel. I love her. She sat down next to me all smiles, and well I just had to kiss her, so I did. She reciprocated quickly and before I knew it her tongue was grazing my bottom lip, begging for entrance. I moaned at the sensation, she took the opportunity to slip her tongue into my mouth, her tongue massaged mine gently. It was not a fiery kiss, but it was passionate, filled with every ounce of our love. The catcalls and whistles brought us out of our embrace. I blushed. I may be confident in myself nowadays, but sometimes the old me flares up.
"So Bella, I noticed you locked me out of your future, and after that kiss I know it's not because you changed your mind, so what did you buy me?"
Damn this girl to hell!
"I do not know what you are talking about Angel." I replied as nonchalantly as I could.
"Bullshit. You cannot lie to me babe."
"Okay. I did buy you something, but I would rather give it to you when we don't have an audience." I pointed to the people still staring at us, waiting for an encore. She giggled.
"I see where you are coming from babe. How about we do a little more shopping? I promise not to be as manic as I was before, and then we go to the movies."
I smiled, "That sounds great Alice. I love you."
"I love you too. Now let's get going."
The rest of the afternoon past by quickly, and luckily for me Alice kept her promise of taking it easy on me. It is now time for the movie to start, we decided on watching Wolfman. Alice said that there are real werewolves, and with her being a vampire, well who am I to deny that other mythological creatures exist. I admit though it was a bit disconcerting to watch the movie, this time instead of Alice being curled up to, I had almost crawled into her skin. She was sweet about it and didn't tease me.
We were finally on our way back to Forks when I felt the car slow down and turn off the road. I looked up to see where we were, and I noticed some cliffs in front of us. I looked at Alice questionably.
"We are here babe because I got something for you today, and with it being a clear night out I thought this would be a perfect time to give it to you, with no one around to interrupt or get in the way. I love you Bella, and well I wanted to give you something that would always remind you, no matter where I am that I will always be your angel."
She pulled out a long black box and handed to me. Alice looked scared that I was not going to like whatever she got me, so I quickly opened the box so that I could squash those fears. I looked inside the velvet box, and well there sitting in it was a necklace with an angel pendant on it, crusted with diamonds. The angel looked like it was made with two hearts touching, and making one beautiful piece of jewelry.
"I love it angel. You are the angel of my heart. I will wear this everyday for the rest of eternity. I love you. Will you put it on for me." I had silent tears running down my face, and I am sure that if Alice could be crying she would be. She had a smile on her face that could outshine the sun. I turned my back to her, and she gently moved my hair out of the way and placed the necklace around my neck. After she clasped it, she laid a gentle kiss on my neck. I guess it is time for me to give her what I got her now.
"Angel, I know you know I got you something, and well now that you have given me a piece of yourself, I will give you a piece of me as well."
I pulled out the box that held her gift in it and handed it to her. I was outright nervous. I have never really bought anything for anyone before, and well this really does mean a lot to me. I heard her gasp. I looked up, and Alice was looking at me with awe.
I opened the box that Bella handed me, and well I couldn't help but gasp at the sight of it. The necklace she bought, it was down right beautiful. Black and white diamonds were on two hearts that connected each other, creating a swan. A swan from a Swan. A piece of her to me. I looked up at Bella with complete awe. She looked so nervous.
"Isabella, I love it. I will wear it with pride my love. You will always be close to my heart now."
Bella smiled and took the necklace from the box so that she could put it on me, she motioned for me to turn around.
We got out of the car so that we could walk to the cliffs, I grabbed her hand and just held on. She is my lifeline, that I never thought would be cast out to me. The radio was still playing from the car, and a slow song came on. I turned Bella to me, and we just danced, looking into each others eyes, not saying a word, just letting our eyes do the talking.
I love you
I love you too
I will be there for you always
The night was perfect and I did not want it to end. The moon was shining on us brightly, it was then I knew, no matter what the two of us have to go through. At least we will be together for it, and no one will be able to get in the way.
