A/N: I do not own Twilight. This is the last chapter, please take the time to read the AN at the end of the chapter. Oh her eyes, her eyes She's so beautiful Yeah I know, I know But every time she asks me do I look okay When I see your face Her lips, her lips She's so beautiful Just The Way You Are
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
And I tell her every day
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so sexy
And I tell her every day.
A/N: I do not own Twilight.
This is the last chapter, please take the time to read the AN at the end of the chapter.
Oh her eyes, her eyes
She's so beautiful
Yeah I know, I know
But every time she asks me do I look okay
When I see your face
Her lips, her lips
She's so beautiful
Just The Way You Are
He shrugged. ''What ever you say, love, but I'm not letting you go. Not yet.''
''You don't ever have to,'' I sighed deeply, content.
''I'm holding you to that.''
A couple of weeks have passed since the whole misunderstanding. Weeks that had passed in pure bliss for all of us, especially for Bella and I. Our close relationship was back on track, making us almost inseparable. I couldn't say that I had liked our temporary separation, but I had learned a few things from the unfortunate events.
Things such as, we had to build our communication so there couldn't be any more misunderstandings, we couldn't let things like this tear us apart, there had to be more trust between the two of us, but most importantly my love for Bella.
I couldn't exactly say that I had shared my feelings for her with her. I had planned to tell her when the Swans and Jane's family came over for dinner to say good-bye to Jane's family, but of course Bella was too busy with the rest of the girls that I felt like it wasn't the right time. There had been other chances to tell her about my feelings to her, but they just didn't feel right for one reason or another.
Other than that, some other things had been plaguing my mind, like forgiveness. Bella and I had talked about forgiving Alec for his actions, and even though she told me that she fully agreed that Alec should be given a second chance, I couldn't exactly agree with her.
The days following the night of the event had been awkward in some ways. Alec had changed his attitude for good and had hung out with the seven of us most of the time. Though I wasn't the only one who thought things were slightly awkward.
I was still conscious that Alec really liked Bella; even loved her in his way, and that didn't really help. Bella had noticed once and had assured me later when we were alone that nothing or nobody else could change her feelings for me.
I had been so close to telling her I loved her that time. Everything had been perfect. We had been on her backyard, under the stars. Looking back at it now, it had been the perfect moment. I had been so close to telling her.
''Bella, I...I...I think that we should both go inside now before anyone starts to worry.''
That had been such a lame excuse, and when I had looked into her eyes she had looked suspicious. She knew something was up. Something big. Though she was way too nice to say anything about it. I had been relieved she had let it go, instead of calling me in on it.
I knew I had to say it to her though, which was why I had called Rosalie and Alice so they could help me come up with a plan. I had an idea already, but I needed other people to help me with everything else. I knew that if I told Emmett, he would make fun of me for being such a sap, Jasper would probably shrug and tell me to wait for the right moment. I had been close to asking my mom for her advice, but then decided she wouldn't be able to keep it away from Renee and that would ruin everything.
Bella was spending the day with her mom so Alice and Rose had agreed to help me, understanding that they couldn't say anything to Bella about it. I wanted this to be a surprise; that Bella found out from me that I loved her instead of hearing it from anybody else.
''But Bella hates surprises, Edward, especially when they are of this magnitude,'' Alice complained and I sighed. I was well aware of Bella's dislike for surprises, but there really wasn't anything I could do about it.
''I'm well aware of that Alice, I just need help with this,'' I almost pleaded.
Rosalie rolled her eyes. ''Okay, we get it Romeo. So do you at least have an idea of what you want to do?'' she asked.
I nodded. ''I kind of have an idea but it's not complete,'' I admitted, watching as their faces turned to almost a business-like expression.
''Do tell,'' they both said at the same time.
That was freaky.
''I just don't understand why I have to dress like this! Can't I just wear my normal pair of jeans and a normal t-shirt? I have no idea where he is taking me anyway. If I dress like this and we end up going to a fast food restaurant, I'm going to die of humiliation,'' I complained to Alice and Rosalie.
Edward had told me yesterday that he wanted the two of us to spend the day together. Just the two of us. When I asked him what we will be doing, he told me it was a surprise.
Seriously, didn't he know that I hated surprises by now?
Rosalie and Alice had somehow found out- I hadn't told them, I was actually hopping that they wouldn't even notice so they wouldn't ask questions afterwards- and now they decided to play Bella Barbie for an occasion I didn't myself know what would be appropriate to wear.
Though they both had insisted that they knew what will be the perfect outfit. I had argued with them for a better part of a half-hour, until I decided to just shut up and let them do what they liked. As long as they didn't go overboard.
The only thing I asked them not to do, and of course they ignored me and went against my wishes. They had dressed me in a one-shoulder silk top that had a ribbon-like belt and ruffles on the one shoulder leading down to the other side. It was beautiful; don't get me wrong, but way too dressy.
They paired that up with a pair of denim skinny jeans that were comfortable enough. To my surprise they didn't strap me into a pair of heels, but a really cute pair of flats. For jewelry they stayed simple enough and only gave me a wrap bracelet that Alice said matched both, the shoes and the shirt.
Alice did my make-up and hair, leaving them both pretty nice. All in all, I looked good, but I somehow felt like it was too much. When I voiced this to Rosalie she just rolled her eyes.
''Bella, you look hot! Now stop worrying about it, okay?'' she said. I nodded.
Ten minutes later after they were both done, the bell rang downstairs. I immediately began to feel the nerves and anticipation creeping up as Ali and Rose dragged me down the stairs, much more excited than myself.
''Okay slow down guys! I don't want to break something!'' I said as they both continued dragging me down the stairs.
As soon as we stopped at the bottom of the stairs and both of them let go of my hands, I looked up to meet my favorite green eyes.
He was wearing a pair a fitted dark washed fitted pair of jeans with a dark green button down t-shirt that brought out his eyes. He was the definition of perfect.
As soon as our eyes met he smiled and opened his arms, in which I gladly walked to. He gave me a sweet kiss on the lips then turned to wave to Rose and Alice before he led us both towards his silver Volvo which was parked in my drive way.
''You look absolutely beautiful today Bella,'' he whispered in my ear as he opened the door for me to climb in the passenger seat. I smiled at him, but when I was about to voice my response he closed the door lightly and walked to his side of the car.
''You don't look bad yourself,'' I replied smiling at him.
Edward smiled and then reached out to the backseat and grabbed a blue sleep mask to my surprise as he placed it lightly over my eyes.
''What do you think you're doing?'' I questioned, attempting to move as he placed the sleep mask to cover my eyes, making me temporarily blind.
''I'm covering your eyes so you won't be able to see,'' he replied matter-of-factly.
I rolled my eyes, even though he couldn't see. ''So I figured, but why are you doing this?'' I demanded.
I heard him sigh. ''It's a surprise,'' was his simple reply.
''You know, I really hate surprises and I rather like having my vision.''
''Bella, don't whine.''
''I am not whining, Edward, I just really want to know what's going on,'' I almost pleaded, facing the way where his voice had come from.
''Nothing, just sit back and relax.''
About a half-hour later, maybe more or less, I couldn't really know for sure since my eyes were still covered, and I couldn't see the time, I felt the car come to a smooth stop. I sighed, hoping he will remove the piece of cloth from my eyes, as ridiculous as this sounded, I really wanted to see his face.
''We are here,'' Edward's velvet voice came from besides me.
''Does that mean you will uncover my eyes?'' I asked.
''Nope, you have to wait a little bit,'' he answered. I was about to respond to that when he spoke again. ''Wait here, okay I'll go open you door.''
I nodded, and heard his door open and close. Seconds later, my own door open and as he helped me out and my feet registered that instead of the floor being the smooth cement I was expecting, it was dirt, making me wonder where he was taking me.
''Edward, where the hell are you taking me?''
''If I tell you, it won't be a surprise, Bella. Plus, I would rather see your surprised expression when you find out.''
I nodded. The other odd thing that stricken me was the earthy smell of my surroundings, but instead of coming up with trying to come up to where we were going, I just smiled, refusing to ponder it.
I trusted Edward immensely, and I knew that where ever he was taking me, I would feel safe.
Without any warning, I was swept off my feet and felt as Edward positioned me to carry be bridal style. I rolled my eyes at Edward's action, but refrained from doing anything.
''I can walk you know,'' I reminded him, but I couldn't stop the smile on my face. He was just the sweetest guy any girl could ever dream for.
''Not without tripping over your own feet,'' he whispered so low I probably wouldn't have been able to hear if I hadn't been paying so much attention to the sounds around me.
I stuck my tongue out, hopefully in his direction, and enjoyed the sound of his musical laugh.
''Are we there yet?'' I asked as I became even more impatient.
We had been walking; well he was walking while I was still in his arms, for quite a while now. I didn't enjoy the fact that I couldn't see anything, and I didn't know where he was taking me.
Maybe he was lost but was too stubborn to admit it.
''Yeah, we are here,'' he said as he set me down on my two feet. I reached for the cloth covering my eyes but he stopped them halfway up. ''Now, wait a second here okay?'' he said. He didn't even wait for my answer and walked away.
I couldn't see where he was or what was happening, and I wondered, for one wild second, if he had left me here to stand like an idiot, but then decided he wouldn't do that.
Not long after, I felt his arms wrap around me from behind, his chin resting on my shoulder, he was so close I could feel his breath on my face.
''Before I show you what I've done, I need you to promise me something, okay?'' I nodded. ''Please don't freak out or anything, I brought you here for a reason.''
I felt his hands at the back of my head, gently taking away the cloth. ''I don't want your beautiful hair to get ruined,'' he whispered in my ear as he took it out. I had my eyes closed even after he had taken away the offending cloth, not really knowing whether or not to open it now or if I was waiting for him to tell me.
I could smell a strange fragrance in the air, one that didn't entirely belong in the forest, where I figured we were at.
''Open your eyes now, love,'' he quietly urged me in a gentle voice. I opened my eyes and gasped at what lay before me.
We were in the middle of his meadow, the last place I figured we will be at which was really stupid of me. He, hopefully not alone, had placed those electric candles, setting in a romantic atmosphere.
In the center there was a table, set up in a romantic dinner type of setting. Flower petals adorned the floor. There was gentle, classical music playing in the background, and I recognized the very beginning of my lullaby.
I looked up at Edward, tears of amazement and love running down my cheeks. ''How?'' I asked quietly, it felt like that was the voice you had to use here so to not disturb the utter beauty and peace this place possessed.
He looked down at me with the same emotion that he has been gazing at me with since we got back together, and I still couldn't name it. Edward gently wiped away the tears, but kept his palms on my cheeks.
''I got help. Do you like it?'' he whispered.
''It's absolutely beautiful.'' I kept my eyes connected to his. My melody in the background seemed to be perfect for this setting.
I love you. I wanted to say those simple, yet so powerful, words to him, but I was afraid he didn't feel the same way, or that he will think it was way too soon to thing like that.
''It's okay, but it pales in comparison with you here. You are so much more beautiful than anything in this universe,'' he whispered, placing he forehead against mine. Tears were flowing down my cheeks, he carefully kissed each away.
''I love you, Bella,'' he said and I gasped in surprise. ''I love you and I always did. From the very first moment I met you, to now, to forever. I don't know anymore what it feels like to not love you, and I don't want to know. You are all I want, Bella, all I want compacted into you. Beautiful girl, inside and out,' he whispered.
''I love you, too. Always and forever.''
Edward leaned in to kiss me, sweet and lovingly. Everything was beautiful, perfect.
The music, my perfect melody composed by the sweetest and perfect man, lingered in the background, the place was perfect. Everything was just right.
And I had the most amazing man for myself, now and forever.
Our happily ever after.
I still find it impossible to believe this is the last chapter of this story. I know, I know, it took me long enough, but school really took so much of my time. Sorry.
As many of you know, there isn't going to be a sequel, but I'm going to re-write most of the chapters from this story, because I have found so many errors, and I want to correct them. Of course, first I'm going to focus on my other stories which I have left abandonded for the time being.
Thank you so much to everyone who reviewed, and took the time to read it. Although I didn't get the chance to respond to every single one, I read them all. Thank you.
Thank you to my awesome Beta as well, VaMpIrExPixie, I really appreaciate you.
Thanks for everything.
