Hello everyone,

A/N: Hello All,

This story is almost complete and will be posted entirely (hopefully...AAAHHHHHH!) between Friday, March 16th and Sunday, March 18th.

I decided to limit my author notes throughout the story so, here is my thank you's and my disclaimer.

To Amberdale, my BFF in RL, my pre-reader and sounding board. Thank you. I couldn't have done this without your encouragement, pushes and nudges along the way. I will return the favor in May when it's your turn to be a part of the wars.

To TexasBella, You took on an unknown author even though your plate is beyond full and over flowing. You were fast and a pleasure to work with. Having you beta this was amazing, hopefully we can work together again in the future. Thank you so much!

To Shadowed By Passion, you were what I like to call my post-reader and secondary beta. While TexasBella attacked my grammar, you helped my plot and storytelling. I could never thank you enough for giving this story that little something extra.

Ch. 1 Edward POV - Family Vacation

Monday, July 11, 2011

I work at Northwest Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle as an E.R. doctor. That is how I met my Bella, a drop dead gorgeous paramedic. We hit it off right away and met a few times for coffee. I finally grew some balls and asked her on a date six months ago and my life has not been the same since. I can't even imagine what my life was like when she wasn't a part of it.

Since things between us have been going so well I decided I need to take Bella to meet my family at the lodge my parents own and run on Lake Crescent. They close it down the week after the fourth of July every year for our family's summer vacation. If she can survive this week and meeting my crazy ass family, then it will just be a matter of time before I ask her to be my wife.

I know it's fast but she is perfect for me, she understands my work and my shitty schedule because hers is just as bad. If she accepts the insane asylum that I call my family then that's it, she's it for me.

This week is important because it is the only time, besides the end of year holidays, that my whole family gets together to have fun with no questions asked. My family includes my twin sister, Alice, our older brother, Emmett, along with his wife and kids, and of course, our parents.

At the last minute I also had Bella invite her dad and brother along as well.

Maybe I should warn them...
