To Parkerstwilight: Lauren and Regina are going to have a fun vacation in jail. :p

To Thari: Lol, omg, not airing Vampire Diaries because of Queen's day? :p Ah well, you're right, they're weird enough to do it. :p Luckily they didn't. xD The episode was awesome, by the way. :D And thanks for all the sweet words, you deserve a big hug in return! :D

To Bella'Swan'22: Sure, here's a virtual HappyEverAfter!Edward for you! :D And no, I don't have any new ideas yet. :p First I'm going to take a short break from all the writing, and then we'll see if I can come up with an idea that I like. ;)

To Madeliefje: Good luck with your exams! :O

To Catch Me Salvatore: Ooh, yes. That sounds good as well! Damon and Stefan are awesome. :D

To Lexi: Lol, if I start writing a new story, I'll consider including a good-guy-Jacob. ;)

To Me and Balou: You sent me a message and asked me some questions regarding a translation, but you've disabled 'private messaging' in your settings, so I can't reply to you unless you enable it first. :p

Also; To all of you who asked for a sequel: No, I'm afraid that won't happen. For one because I'm not a sequel-person, I don't like dragging out stories for the sake of making them longer. ;) When a story is nicely wrapped up like this one, then it's (in my opinion) no use to write a sequel. Besides, it wouldn't be half as interesting as this story. ;) So I'm sorry, but there won't be a sequel.

Okay, last part! Enjoy this fluffy epilogue, and keep reading for my special word of thanks to you guys! :D Hope you'll all like the ending! Have fun. :D


Epilogue

One month later…

I was waiting for Edward, aimlessly strolling around our very large, and without a doubt ridiculously expensive hotel suite. The fancy dress that I was wearing was very unlike me, and so was my current hairdo. Alice and Rose had worked two hours on it, and they had just left to reunite with Jasper and Emmett. We would all meet up later, but for now I was alone, and I felt restless.

I glanced around the room, looking for something to busy myself with while I waited for Edward's return, and my eyes fell on the glass door to my left, which led to the balcony. Hesitantly I opened it, stepping into the fresh air, hoping that it would clear my mind, if only a little. It was a good thing that I wasn't scared of heights, otherwise I'm sure I would've fainted. I shuffled closer to the railing of the balcony as I looked down at the city below. The sight was simply breathtaking. It was twilight, and millions of lights were twinkling beneath me, creating one big sea of light. New York; I had never been here before, but then again, the same could be said for every other place in this world, except for Forks and Port Angeles…

Edward and I had a good reason to be here, a reason that was making me both excited and nervous… Tonight was the premiere of Edward's latest movie, the one he had worked on before he had made his escape to rainy Forks. Of course I had insisted that he had to keep me out of this, and that I would sneak inside on my own to watch the event from a chair somewhere in the back. To my immense disappointment, he hadn't approved of my brilliant plan. In fact, he had insisted that he wanted me to be his 'red carpet date'. My stomach twisted at that thought. Tons of people would be watching me, either in person, or on the screens of their televisions. I doubted if I would even make it to the entrance of the theater without tripping over my own, clumsy feet. I had told Edward about my worries, but he had promised me that he wouldn't let go of me for one second. I trusted him, so that part wouldn't be the most difficult…

The horrifying part was that everyone would wonder why on earth Edward Cullen would drag the servant girl along to this important event. Like anyone could ever believe that he was dating boring, plain Jane, Bella Swan…

But regardless, I was going to do it. He had done so much for me in the past couple of months, and I owed him this much. He had practically saved my life, and I was thankful for that every single day.

My life had changed even more during the last few weeks; with my evil stepfamily spending a nice vacation in jail, I could focus on things that were truly important. Things like Edward, school, and my future. I now had a pretty clear vision of what that future was going to look like. I had saved up a reasonable amount of college money thanks to my job at Forks' local library, and I had also picked the place where I would go to college. That place was none other than the enormous city that was stretching out in front of me; New York. The motivation behind this decision was that my handsome boyfriend had accepted a role in a new movie, and most of the scenes would be shot in New York. It came as no surprise that Edward also had a mansion here, somewhere, and the plan was that we would move there during the summer vacation.

I knew that it would be a huge change, moving from quiet, old Forks to a city like New York, but nevertheless, I was excited to jump into this whole new adventure. Besides, Edward would also keep the mansion in Forks, so we would be able to go back there whenever I missed my hometown. That was typically him, always doing what was best for me… Some days I woke up, still wondering if I wasn't dreaming, thinking that he couldn't be real…

The sudden sound of his velvety voice startled me, making me jump a little.

"Love? Everything is arranged, the limo will be here in thirty minutes." He announced, resting one of his hands on the small of my back as he came to stand beside me. "You look absolutely stunning by the way." He added, appreciatively checking out my dress.

"Thanks…" I muttered weakly, glancing sideways.

He looked gorgeous. He always did, but the sight of him in a tux never failed to make me swoon. A serene, uneven smile was on his face as he gazed back at me.

"A penny for your thoughts, you seemed miles away." He said, gently rubbing my back.

"Just… Thinking about what it would be like, living in New York." I provided him with part of the truth.

"Oh… Well there's still time to change your mind." He replied right away. "I understand that this has to be a big change for you."

I shook my head. "The weird thing is, I don't think I will change my mind… Actually, I was thinking that I was even looking forward to it."

His green eyes lighted up at my words, and his smile grew wider. "That's good to hear… And are you looking forward to tonight as well?" He asked casually.

I didn't answer him immediately. I didn't want to lie, but I also didn't want to ruin his big night with my insignificant concerns.

"You're not still worrying, are you?" He asked, raising his eyebrows.

"A little." I admitted.

His arms found their way around my waist and he pulled me close to him, resting his head on top of mine. For a long moment we both stared at the countless city lights beneath us in silence.

"Don't. There's nothing to worry about." He finally whispered against my hair.

"I'm trying, but it's not working… Maybe you should distract me until the car is here." I suggested.

He chuckled, releasing me a little so he could take a better look at me. "Now that you mention it, there is something that I've wanted to ask you for the past week or so… I'm having some trouble finding the right moment, but I'm sure that it would be a major distraction if I picked this moment…" He mused.

I briefly wondered if he was still talking to me, but apparently he was, seeing as he grinned at me when I sneaked a look at his face.

"I'm sure it can't be that bad… Go ahead and ask, anything for some distraction." I encouraged him, not having a clue as to why he needed to find a good moment to simply ask me a question.

"Are you sure?" He checked again.

"Sure, sure. Shoot."

"Shoot? It's way more serious than 'shoot', love." He said dryly, nervously scratching the back of his head.

"Oh…" I muttered.

Serious? Serious usually wasn't good… On the contrary, a serious talk could often be associated with something bad… But no matter what, even if it was something bad, I was curious now, and I needed to know.

"You still want me to continue?" Edward pressed.

I nodded firmly. "Yes… Serious question, I'm ready for it, bring it on."

He rolled his pretty eyes but turned to face me, taking both my hands in his, squeezing them softly. His eyes were locked with mine, his stare more intense than I had ever seen it before.

My stomach turned. Uh oh, this had to be something really serious.

"Bella…" He started, clearing his throat before continuing. "The last few months have been… amazing. You've changed me, and you've showed me what it's like to truly love someone with whole your heart… You made me feel things I never thought I would be able to feel."

I think my breathing stopped, panic rising slowly. This was it, I was going to be dumped, right? This sounded dangerously close to a thank-you-speech… I could only imagine what would come next… It was nice for the time being, we had a great time, I loved you in a way, I want to thank you for everything you did, but you obviously don't fit into my movie star-life… Perhaps this whole premiere-thing had been his wake-up call, and he had finally realized that we came from two completely different worlds.

"Bella?" He questioned, as if checking whether I was still listening or not.

"Uhu…" Was the only word I succeeded in choking out.

"I can keep beating around the bush, but it's a very simple question, really." He said softly.

His grip on my hands tightened, and I took a deep, shaky breath. And then he did the unthinkable. He sank to one knee in front of me, never letting go of my hands. Oh. My. God. Maybe I had it all wrong… Was he seriously going to...

He smiled up at me, his eyes smoldering me. The city surrounding us was long forgotten; I was caught up in the moment. As far as I was concerned there was only him, me, and the small balcony that we were currently standing on. He momentarily let go of one of my hands, fumbling something out of the pocket of his black jacket. It was a small, black box, and he held it up in front of me, looking up at me from under his long lashes.

"I know that this is old fashioned, but it's a big deal to me… Isabella Swan, I swear on my life that I will love you forever. I will take care of you until the day your heart stops beating, and I promise that I won't ever leave you." He said, his emerald eyes burning with sincerity, the truth of his words displayed in them.

He opened the box, and I swallowed heavily when I saw the shiny ring that it contained.

"Edward…" I said breathlessly.

"Marry me, Bella. Say you'll be mine forever." He said, gazing expectantly at me.

Wow… He was proposing. Just like that. He wanted me to marry him. I was shocked to say the least. Marrying… I had never thought of myself as the marrying-type, but with Edward, it suddenly didn't sound like such an unpleasant idea anymore… Oh, who was I fooling? Did I really have to think about this? Wasn't it perfectly clear that Edward was the only one I would ever love like this?

"Bella?" He asked anxiously. "Look, maybe I'm scaring you with all this, I know that I'm going very fast… If you want to wait, or if you don't want to… you know…" He rambled.

"Shht." I whispered, also sinking to my knees so I was level with him, ignoring the fact that Alice would kill me if something happened to the dress in the process.

Edward blinked, nervously watching me.

"You made all my dreams come true, Edward. Of course I'll marry you." I answered quietly before I wrapped my arms around him, hugging myself to him.

"Yes?" He asked, half surprised, half excited.

"Yes! A thousand times yes." I exclaimed.

He let out a shaky laugh as his arms tightened around me. "Yes…" He whispered next to my ear.

I let go of him, leaning back in order to look at him. His face was radiating happiness; more proof that I had made the right choice, I would do anything to make Edward happy. He took my left hand in his, gently sliding the ring on my finger.

"Thank you, love." He murmured, his eyes sparkling.

"No, thank you, Edward."

To back up my words, I brought my face to his, gently pressing my lips against his. He closed his eyes and sighed in what sounded like relief. Our lips started to move against each other, and my hands traveled into his bronze hair, which was less messy today because he had done an attempt to tame it for the premiere. Well I would change that…

We kissed passionately, until we were distracted by a small cough.

"Mr. Cullen, Miss Swan… The car is here, we don't want to be late." Joe announced, peeking his head around the glass door, his expression amused.

I blushed furiously and Edward grinned sheepishly. "Right, let's go, sweetheart."

He got up from the floor, holding out his hand to me. I took it, grinning like a lovesick idiot while he helped me up.

"So, did it work? My little plan to distract you, I mean?" Edward asked smugly as he led me back into the hotel suite.

I playfully smacked his arm. "I think you know the answer to that question, Edward."

"I suppose I do… Well, it's time. I can't wait to show my new fiancé to the rest of the world." He responded cheerfully.

My cheeks heated up, but I couldn't deny that I secretly enjoyed the sound of that… Edward Cullen's fiancé… Nope, getting married definitely didn't sound so wrong anymore to me…

We were sitting in the limo, my hands nervously playing with the expensive material of my dress. Edward was sitting next to me, and I could feel his eyes on me, watching my every move.

"Calm down, love. It will be fine, there's nothing to be afraid of." He said calmly, placing his hand over mine, intertwining our fingers to try and save the dress from my fumbling hands.

"If you say so…" I mumbled.

He sighed, softly stroking my cheek with his other hand, causing me to look up at him.

"I'll stay with you the entire time, and all the screaming fans are safely behind the fencing… Why are you scared anyway?" He asked, his eyes meeting mine.

"You think that I'm being silly, huh?"

"No, I don't think that you're being silly. I'm simply trying to understand what's going on inside that pretty head of yours."

"I don't know… I'm just a little scared about peoples' reactions… What if they laugh at me? Or worse, laugh at you, because you're bringing along your housekeeper." I voiced my worries for the first time, wincing a little at the word 'housekeeper'.

Edward narrowed his eyes at me. "My housekeeper? You're my soon to be wife, please grasp that." He said, disbelief seeping through his voice.

"I know that." I quickly assured him. "But they don't… The last thing they heard about me was the whole Tanya-scandal."

Edward shrugged nonchalantly. "Then tonight's the perfect opportunity for us to let people know about your new status..."

The car stopped, and I frowned at him. I had been too busy with freaking out to see where we were going, but it seemed that we had already reached our destination.

"What do we do now? Do we get out?" I asked, not able to hide my fresh wave of panic.

Edward laughed and gently squeezed my hand. "No, Joe will get out and open the door for us. All you have to do is follow my lead and smile like you mean it."

"Okay… I can do that…" I squeaked.

The door on Edward's side suddenly opened, and Joe nodded at us as a sign that we were allowed to get out. Edward did as he was told, and I could hear a lot of hysterical screaming coming from outside. Oh god… My knees started to feel weak. I couldn't do this!

"Love?" Edward urged me on, holding out his hand to me.

"I'll wait in the car?" It came out as a question.

Edward smirked and rolled his eyes. "Oh no, you don't."

I reluctantly placed my hand in his, and ungracefully got out of the car. As soon as I was safely standing on my own two feet, beside Edward who was firmly holding on to my hand, I finally had a chance to check out the chaos that was surrounding us…

We were standing on a long carpet with a deep-red color, and on both sides of the carpet were fences. Behind those fences were lots of reporters, as well as thousands of screaming fan girls. Some of them were holding banners with all different kinds of slogans on them. One said 'Bite me, Edward' in thick, red letters, obviously referring to his role in that popular vampire movie that wasn't one of his favorites.

"Are you coming, love?" Edward hinted, gently tugging at my hand.

I gasped and nodded, obediently placing one foot in front of the other, walking down the carpet with him.

This had to be the most overwhelming experience I'd ever had in my life. Girls were screaming Edward's name, and cameras were flashing everywhere around us.

"This is… wow." I said in awe, raising my voice to be heard over the screaming.

Edward had put on a smile and was laughing and waving at the fans and cameras. "Yes, it is sort of 'wow'." He agreed.

Several people were eyeing me curiously, probably wondering what I was doing here, walking next to the most beautiful man in the world, but Edward seemed totally oblivious. He dragged me along as he posed for the journalists, and every time I tried to subtly distance myself from him when a picture was taken, he pulled me into his side to make sure that I would be in the picture as well. He seemed nothing but proud to have me by his side, and that thought gave me some newfound confidence.

I put on a smile as well, and timidly waved at a couple of reporters who were trying to get my attention. A camera flashed and I heard someone yell a "Thank you, Miss Swan!"

"That's it, love. You're a natural! They'll love you." Edward said sweetly, encouraging me.

I grinned, his words affecting me more than any of the other things that were happening around me.

"Mr. Cullen! Can we ask you some questions, please!" A female reporter who I guessed was in her mid-forties yelled, her face hopeful.

Edward smiled and walked up to her, pulling me along.

"Thank you, Mr. Cullen!" She said warmly when she realized that he was complying.

"Just Edward, please. And sure, ask away." Edward replied, nodding at her.

A camera was pointed at us, and she held out a microphone in our general direction.

"Right, Edward! I think a lot of people were surprised to see that Miss Swan is your date for tonight. It's a rather interesting choice, if I say so myself." She started.

Edward smiled crookedly. "Oh, she sure is interesting. But I don't think it's such a weird choice." He disagreed lightly, admiringly smiling in my direction as he talked about me.

"Well, what I meant is, a lot of people know her as your housekeeper…" The woman probed.

Edward chuckled. "That's how we met, but she's not my employee anymore. Isabella and I have come a long way. In fact, I asked her to marry me today, and she said yes. So I'm proud to announce that as from today, I can officially call her my fiancée."

The woman gaped at him, and so did I. Did he just announce our engagement on national television? He clearly wasn't ashamed of me… My heart swelled with joy.

"You mean, we are looking at the future Mrs. Edward Cullen?" The reporter asked as soon as she had composed her face again.

"That is correct." He confirmed, lovingly kissing the top of my head before smiling into the camera again.

"Congratulations, Miss Swan. I think a lot of girls would love to be in your shoes." She addressed me, winking.

I shyly smiled into the camera. "Yes, I am one lucky girl." I agreed wholeheartedly.

She smiled at us, then turned towards the camera. "Thank you for watching, this was Angelica Johnson, talking to Edward Cullen and his fiancé Isabella Swan, who just might be the luckiest girl alive."

Edward smiled down at me as he guided me away from the cameras, to the entrance of the huge theater in front of us.

"And? Do you agree with her, luckiest girl alive?" He asked jokingly.

"Are you kidding? She's totally right." I said dreamily.

"Too bad that she forgot to mention that I am the luckiest man alive." Edward mused.

I blushed, and he stood still at the entrance, spinning me around so I was facing him.

"Aren't we supposed to go inside?" I hinted.

"Yes… But first, let them take a picture of this."

Giving me no chance to protest, he quickly lowered his head in order to give me a brief but firm kiss on the lips. The screams from the crowd were getting louder, and he smirked against my lips.

Yep, that crazy reporter-woman had been totally right. I, Bella Swan, once a magnet for danger and accidents, had become the luckiest girl in the world. All the nonbelievers out there who were convinced that fairytales couldn't come true were completely wrong, because once in every while, they did come true. After Edward, I no longer had to ask myself if there was such a thing as a happily ever after, because this wonderful man had given me just that.

The End.


You ran around, inside my head
When you passed out, I felt dead
And I realized you make me live
And when my world, starts to cave in
You jump inside, and take my hand
No matter where, you are there

Will I ever see what you could see in me?
Or do I just believe that we will always be and dream
Well I will never be the same and when they see
that you and me were meant to be they'll just believe why we,
are together

You are my light, you are my star
You are my sunshine and my dark
You are the everything I dreamed about
You are the guy, who stole my heart
I am the girl you're always fighting for
We have a love, people dream about
A real life fairytale…

I thought that I, would be alone
You caught my eye, and I was home
And I realized that this is love
I see the world, through different eyes
I look at you, by my side
No matter where, you're always there

Will I ever see what you could see in me?
Or do I just believe that we will always be and dream
Well I will never be the same and when they see
that you and me were meant to be they'll just believe why we
are together

You are my light, you are my star
You are my sunshine and my dark
You are the everything I dreamed about
You are the guy, who stole my heart
I am the girl you're always fighting for
We have a love, people dream about

Dream with me
Make me believe
That this is a real life fairytale

You are my light, you are my star
You are my sunshine and my dark
You are the everything I dreamed about
You are the guy, who stole my heart
I am the girl you're always fighting for
We have a love, people dream about
A real life fairytale…

Wow, so that's it! Another story finished. *Dramatic background music*

It was my original plan to make another thank-you-video, like I did for 'All I Never Wanted', seeing as a lot of people liked that. Unfortunately, my webcam had other plans. The stupid thing is nowhere near cooperative, so you'll all have to make do with this lame, written word of thanks. :p

First I want to thank all my awesome reviewers! I mean it, you guys are the best support anyone could ever ask for! Thanks for leaving all those compliments and kind words. Thanks for being so enthusiastic about my silly little story, I truly appreciate it! :D *Gives away more virtual hugs*

Also, a big thank you to everyone who has read this story and added it to their favorites! I'm sort of shocked that there are so many people who take the time to read this crap in the first place, so thanks! :D

Alright, so, there won't be a sequel, as explained in the author's note, but there's a very realistic chance that I will start working on a new story. xD I don't have any ideas yet, but knowing me, I'll probably start writing again as soon as I've found some new inspiration. :)

Until then, take care! You guys rock, and I hope to see you all at another story! :D
