I am My Beloved's, and My Beloved is Mine

AN: If you haven't read my story Eight Nights of Delights, this story may not make a ton of sense. I highly recommend you read the Eight Nights of Delights first (at least the first two chapters, but all the stories have hints to this story).

Huge thanks to Fanpiremama for beta-ing. Please don't freak out this is only an intro. SM owns the characters I circumcised them, and converted their names.


Three years ago….

"Bella, we graduate in a few weeks and I want us to move forward with our relationship."

I stared across the table from my boyfriend of over three years. He was trying this again. I loved him with all of my heart, but I wasn't ready to be all grown-up and married or engaged for that matter.

"Edward, you know I'm not ready for that yet. I love you, but I'm not ready to be your fiancé, not yet."

"You don't want me?" He looked upset, despite the fact that lately we had this argument all the time.

"I'm not saying that. I just want to graduate, get settled first, and then… I wish you'd just quit pressuring me into this marriage thing. How many times can I tell you? I'm not ready."

"No, it's either this or we're done."

The tears welled up in my eyes. What the hell? He doesn't know what he's saying. He's stressed with all of the decisions about law school and his senior honors thesis, but he never has ever said those words.

"What do you mean were done?" I asked. We had both planned to go to Washington, DC. He was going to go to Georgetown and I was lined up to teach at an inner-city charter school.

"It's over. You're either with me or against me." Oh no, he's quoting George W. Bush. This can't be good.

"Edward…" I pleaded.

"No, we're done." His face was devoid of all emotion. I was used to his pig-headedness but not to this extent.

"But…but…I've given you the best semesters of my life." I stammered, looking up to see the love of my life, Edward Cullenman, throw a twenty on the table and walk out the door and my life.

AN: I have posted this initial intro chapter in two places with Eight Nights of Delights and also on it's own. Please put I am My Beloved on alert the next chapter will be posted shortly. Oh and don't freak out about the heartfail. Thanks
