A/N I know it's been a really long time, but it's summer vaca finally and two weeks into break and I'm horribly bored. So, here it is. It's short, but bare with me here and let me get my mojo back.

Life Goes On
"So, how about dinner and a movie tonight?" Edward asked me as we made our way towards the shoreline, about ready to take a dip in the water. It was barely eleven o'clock on a Saturday morning and it was already scorching out.
I shook my head, "Can't. Promised the girls we'd chill tonight."
He rolled his eyes, "You always hang out with them."
"No, I always hang out with you. And, I haven't even seen them since I got back from the Bahamas," I pointed out. It was true, lately me and Edward had started spending even more and more time together. I don't know if it had to do with each others company, or the fact that I just really liked kissing him.
"So, lets just keep the good times rolling this weekend," he smirked at me as he pulled me into the warm waters of the Atlantic ocean. His green eyes were practically dancing, he had been just so damn happy lately.
"Look at you, just a blast in a glass," I teased as he wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me closer to him. We were a little far out from the shoreline, so there weren't any people around to see our close proximity. Lately, Edward had become considerably more touchy and feely in public.
"Mhm," he mumbled and just smiled at me. He had been doing that a lot more lately too. I'd catch him looking at me, or just smiling at me. We hadn't discussed what was going on between us, just kinda let it go naturally. But I had a strong feeling it was turning into something more than just a friends with benefits kinda thing, if you can even call it that.
After a few moments passed, he broke the comfortable silence, "I want to take a trip."
"You just went on vacation," I replied back instantly.
He shook his head, "That's different, that was a family thing. How about we figure out a way to get out of here just the two of us?"
I snorted, "Yeah like our parents would really go for that idea." Even though it sounded amazing and I could just feel the butterflies in my stomach thinking about spending alone time with Edward somewhere other than home.
"Then I'll bring Em and Jasper, and you can bring Rose and Alice. Our parents can't say no to a friends trip," he bargained. He smirked at me, "And if worst comes to worst, I can just use my powers of persuasion on your mom."
"Ew please, it disgusts me enough that my mom even tolerates you," I pretend to vomit.
"I can't help it if the ladies love my charm."
I rolled my eyes and splashed him, "Please, not everyone loves your charm."
"Then what was it for you?" He asks seriously.
And suddenly we were the only two people swimming in the Atlantic Ocean. Edward looks at me, his eyes are full of curiosity like he truly needs to know what I like about him; why I keep coming back.
I smile, not afraid to say the truth, "You're just, you."
"So, tell us about Edward bellaboo," Rose says.
Me, Rose and Alice desperately needed a girls night out and were at one of our favorite restaurants near the intercoastal. They had been skirting around the Edward issue for weeks now, and have finally gotten the guts to ask.
"What do you mean?" I play dumb.
Alice snorts, "We know you two are attached at the hip. Jazz was even complaining about it."
Rose rolls her eyes, "Ems starting to even get jealous. So Bells, tell us, what are you and Eddie up to these days?"
They both are looking at me curiously, but with skeptical eyes. They won't believe that me and Edward are whatever we are, until they hear the words out of my mouth.
I let out a long sigh, "I honestly don't even know what has happened."
"Start from the beginning," Rose encourages.
So I tell them everything. From that first night we kissed, to the beach earlier today. How Edward has acted so differently since we talked about what happened at the bonfire, and even though we haven't labeled anything, it still feels right with him.
"Maybe you don't need a label right now," Alice comments. "Labels can sometimes make things more complicated. And since you guys are so close, maybe what you're doing now is all y'all need."
Rose nods her head in agreement, "He wont hurt you Bells. He's a good guy, and honestly we've all been waiting for this to happen for a while now. You guys are perfect for each other."
"But what if that's it," they both look at me confused. "What if we're too perfect for each other. We've know each other forever; we know everything about each other. We fight like siblings too. You guys have seen it."
I look out towards the water and sigh. I wish everything could go back to what it was. Even though I'm happy, I hate how confused I am. I never wanted to feel this way, especially with Edward.
"Someone is going to get hurt eventually," I state. "And it's going to hurt even more because neither of us should get hurt."
"Don't predict a future that hasn't even happened yet," Rose says. "Just go one day at a time. Everything will work out the way it's supposed to."
Later that night, while I'm all tucked into bed about to go to sleep, I see my phone flash with a new text. Curious I go and see who it is.
I know things got serious earlier. And I just want you to know that I think the same thing. You're just, you.
A/N Sooo what do you think? Let me know? I kinda missed this like a lot xoxo
