I do not own Twilight or its characters. Stephenie Meyer does.
Epilogue: ( BPOV)
Today is the day my baby is going to get married. Alright, fine. He may not really be a baby anymore. He is twenty-five. In one way, he is older then both me and Edward, which is kind of amusing. Although, it also means he is older than all of us, except Esme.
He got his doctorate earlier this spring in medicine. He is going to work along side Carlisle and Edward.
I am so proud of my husband that he is going to try and perform medicine, for awhile. He has so much confidence in his control now.
I, on the other hand, write books. I have written a few fantasies under pen names, names that will not be traceable because of Jasper's help.
Rose is currently working as a preschool teacher. She loves working with the kids. Emmett works with a pee-wee football team. Alice has designed some clothes of her own. Plus, she has done the covers of my books. Jasper worked his magic to make sure that stays buried too.
Jasper has made the biggest growth. He works as a psychologist at the hospital. I am so proud of him. He finally has let go of feeling like he is a failure at his control.
Thomas found out about vampires when he was eight years old. He was very observant, like I was. He had caught Emmett lifting a car with one hand for Rose, as he often did.
Thomas thought it was the coolest thing ever; words of an eight year old.
However, he found it less cool when he was going to high school. He got pissed one day after hearing a comment some kid made about me and jumped him. That poor boy ended up in traction. Thomas had been was taught to wrestle by his uncle Emmett and didn't hold back. Of course, Edward had a hard time disciplining him over it. He was proud of his son.
We were still in contact with Charlie. He has retired from the police force. He married Sue Clearwater about a year after I was turned. Jacob 'accidently' phased in front of him. So he was made aware of the world of mythical creatures. He didn't know that we were vampires, just immortals.
Renée on the other hand developed early Alzheimer. She didn't know me anymore. It was sad, but at least I didn't have to lie to her. Phil turned out to be an ass and left her soon after she was diagnosed. We have been paying for her care to make sure she was well looked after.
Thomas was changed a week after his college graduation. No one had ever brought up the idea of him being changed to him, nor did he ask. That changed when he fell in love with his fiancée.
Thomas and I had met the Denali clan when he was six, for the first time. They were weary of him at first, but after our story, and even pictures to show his growth, they have been close to us. They promised to keep our secret.
About two years ago we ran into them again. That is when Thomas and Tanya fell in love. Ironic that they would be each others' mates considering Tanya used to chase Edward. But Thomas, with the exception of my hair color and mouth, looked just like Edward.
They were happily in love. It was then Thomas mentioned he wanted to be changed. We gave them our blessing. After all, who were we to say no?
Thomas has his control mastered enough to be a doctor already. Although his physical shield helps aid that. If he has it up, then he can block other scents.
I am not sure yet what will happen in another couple of years. We will have to move on from our location in Alaska. The Denali's have pretty much always been there so I wasn't sure if this meant Thomas and Tanya will stay behind with them. I would miss him if he did. It wasn't something that I wanted to think of quite yet.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride," Eleazar announced.
I joined the others in clapping. I felt the tears, that I would never shed, come to my eyes. Edward wrapped his arm around my waist as we went to congratulate the new couple.
About an hour later, my son was dragging me out to the dance floor for the traditional Mother and son dance. He was like his father, even as a human, and had inherited his grace. Although, my own grace has improved now that I am a vampire. He took me into his arms to dance to Christina Aguilera's song I Turn To You.
I sighed inwardly thinking that it didn't seem that long ago that he was a baby in my arms. I remember the day, almost clearly, that I was in labor and Edward delivered our baby. That experience alone gave Edward the confidence that he could be a doctor. I sniffled as I blinked back my unshed tears.
"You are not going to get all sentimental on me, are you?" Thomas teased. His eyes were sparkling with joy.
"I am allowed to. I am your mother," I answered. He rolled his eyes as he spun me around.
"Don't you roll your eyes at me." I reached up and ruffled his hair.
"I am just teasing you, Mom." He smiled at me. "I love you." He gave me a kiss on the cheek before stepping back at the end of the song.
"I love you, too. And like it or not, you will always be my baby boy." I gave him a kiss on the cheek back.
"Yeah, even if you're really older then her, in a way." Emmett bellowed in laughter. A few others chuckled.
"Think fast, Uncle Em." Thomas pulled a balloon from his pocket and threw it at him.
Emmett somehow managed to catch it without it breaking. He lobbed it back hard. I prepared to catch it.
"I got it," Thomas told me. I watched it bounce off his shield and land in front of Alice, who dodged it in time. It hit the ground and orange paint splattered everywhere.
"Thomas William Masen Cullen. This Is A Wedding! Your Wedding. You don't go throwing paint balloons. Have I taught you nothing?!" Alice screeched.
"Of, course, Aunt Alice. You taught me to wear white after Labor Day. Socks and sandals are a must. When going out, use my fanny pack. Also…" He stopped when he saw Alice literally shaking with her rage.
"I am just teasing you, Aunt Alice. I love you." He smiled sweetly at her and she only narrowed her eyes at him.
"You have gotten mighty cocky with that shield of yours. Just you wait. I will get you when your shield is down." Alice huffed.
"And my little dog, too?" Thomas quirked. There was some laughter from the observers.
"Leave Seth out of this." Jacob laughed, shoving Seth in front of him. What a chicken. Thomas and Seth have actually become good friends through the years.
"Son, please stop, before someone gets hurt." Edward pinched the bridge of his nose. He was laughing a minute ago. I wondered if it was the thoughts that were bothering him. I took a chance and covered the others with my shield. His head shot up to look towards me. He gave me a grateful smile.
"Yes, I think it is best we all settle down before we say things we don't mean." Tanya came up and took Thomas's hand. Realizing that his shield was down, I made my way over to Edward and wrapped my arms around his waist. He wrapped his arms around me pulling me tight against his side, he gave me a kiss on the top of my head.
"Thank you," he whispered into my ear.
"Alright, perhaps we should put on more music for dancing." Kate spoke up as she turned to look at her mate Garrett. He nodded and went to fulfill her request.
"Hold on, Em and Jazz." Edward gave them a pointed look. They both smiled sheepishly before removing balloons from their pockets. They turned to toss them in the trash bucket.
"Et Tu, Jazzy," Alice looked disappointed. He shrugged and gave her an apologetic smile.
"Sorry Darlin', but I wasn't going to leave you undefended." Jasper gave her a smile and her face softened. She giggled before dragging him out to the dance floor.
"Who brings paint balloons to a wedding?" Edward sighed, but was smiling.
"Apparently, our family." I laughed as I turned to look up at him. I felt something in his pocket. His face immediately looked guilty.
"Edward Anthony Masen Cullen." I scolded him. He had made the others throw theirs out, but kept one. I couldn't stay mad, though. I loved to see the carefree side of him.
"I had it to protect you," He answered.
"Nah uh. Jasper already used that excuse." I smirked. Quickly, I raised my hand and smashed the balloon in his pocket. Blue soaked his front as his eyes widened in surprise. There were gasps and laughter from the dance floor.
"You shouldn't have done that," Edward smiled evilly at me. Crap, I thought. I turned and started to run. I could sense him behind me. He snagged me from behind and pressed himself against me. I felt the wet paint cover my back.
"Eww, Edward!" I whined as he started to laugh.
"It's your fault I am covered in paint." He whirled me around and pulled me into a heated kiss.
"Look at the bright side. At least it matches your dress." He planted a kiss on my neck. I tilted my head slightly and he peppered my neck with more kisses. "Dance with me, sweetheart." I pulled away to head back to the dance floor but, Edward yanked me back to him.
"Let's dance here. I want a moment with my wife, alone." He dazzled me with his eyes. He wrapped one arm around me and held my hand with the other. He then placed me on his feet. I raised an eyebrow as he smirked.
"For old time sake," he whispered. I rested my head on his shoulder as a familiar song started to play, Am I Only Dreaming. I smiled softly. I then lowered my shield as I sang along with the song in my head. I felt Edward stiffened slightly then he pulled me into another heated kiss.
"Bella," he growled softly against my lips. I smiled to myself. I knew what it did to him to hear my thoughts.
"Yes, sweet knight?" I looked up to see him with stars behind his head. His eyes were dark and smoldering.
"What are you doing?" He asked.
"I don't know what you mean." I gave him a little peep show with my mind of what was under my dress. It was interrupted when he kissed me hard and passionately.
"First thing tomorrow, we are leaving. I am finally going to take you on a honeymoon that you deserve." Edward gave my lips another peck.
"We had a honeymoon." I thought about our couple nights stay in the mountains in New Hampshire.
"Yes, but you were pregnant then. Now we can enjoy ourselves, without any worries," he answered.
"Where are you taking me?" I asked.
"Not telling. It's a surprise." He looked adamant.
"Please," I whispered running my fingers along his jaw. He shook his head and I gave him a pout.
"Please, Edward," I whispered, again. This time I lowered my shield to continue the peep show, but this time I added things that I would be willing to do for him. I watched his eyes glaze over. "Please, tell me, sweet knight," I purred as I ran my fingers up and down his chest. His breath hitched.
"Isslle Es…Esme" he mumbled. I smiled triumphantly as I put my shield back up.
Edward blinked then stared at me.
"Did you just dazzle me?" He smirked, looking highly amused.
"Maybe. I learned from the best." I kissed his lips chastely.
"I love you, sweetheart," Edward smiled then kissed my nose.
"As I do you," I repeated his words from long ago. We continued to dance underneath the stars of the Alaskan sky.
