So this may come as a surprise to you but this is the last chapter! I know, I'm sad too :( But I don't feel as though there is much more I can do with this story and I'll be starting college again soon so I'll probably have difficulty uploading.
I hope you enjoy the final chapter, let me know what you think!
Sorry for any mistakes.
A united front
I'm lying in Edward Cullen's bed!
Well, that may be a slight exaggeration…
I'm lying in a bed owned by Edward Cullen, in Edward Cullen's house however the said bed is in the guest room.
I rubbed my eyes as I sat up in bed and I took in the décor, it was perfect, the walls were painted in a bluish grey colour with a white wood floor. The bed that I was laying in was a dark wood four poster bed, I had a feeling Alice had a hand in decorating this room.
"Bella?" Came the voice of Alice through the door, I had never been so happy to hear her voice!
"Alice, come in!" I called back, excited at the prospect of fresh clothes.
Alice came through the door like a tornado, she had an armful of bags with her.
"Please tell me you have something for me to wear?" I begged, trying to keep my modesty with the duvet as I was only wearing my underwear.
"I have many things for you to wear darling!"
Alice dumped the bags of clothes onto the bed and sat down, she was dressed in a bright red skater dress with cute black pumps.
"Alice, I love you!"
Alice had bought me a silk blue skater dress with white birds all over it with matching blue pumps. It was so simple and so pretty.
"Do you like it?" She asked excitedly.
"I love it. Alice I'm so sorry about not contacting you, I hate to think that I may have worried you."
"Oh Bella, don't feel guilty. You were in no way in the wrong in this situation. Go get dresses and then we can talk."
I smiled at Alice and took my clothes and the duvet into the en suit with me. The clothes fit me perfectly although I had never for once doubted it, Alice knew her industry. I walked back into the bedroom and sat down on the bed next to Alice, she looked upset.
"What's wrong Ali?" I asked, smiling at her.
"Turn around with your back to me so I can put your hair in a fishtail braid whilst we talk."
I did as I was told and then waiting for Alice to begin talking, I could tell there was something wrong.
"Bella, I think it's time you and Edward went public with your relationship. My mother is planning on setting up an arranged marriage for Edward."
Whoa, what? I did not expect that.
"Why would she do that Alice?"
"She's worried about his reputation and what will happen to him if he ruins it. She wants to keep him safe by finding him a wife to settle down with. This is why you need to go public with your relationship."
"Alice, I don't understand why this would mean we have to go public?"
"She wants to set him up with Lauren, she's good friends with Lauren's mother. I know you Bella, I know the rumors hurt you. Look I'm not trying to force you into doing anything you don't want to do, I'm just trying to warn you."
"Thank you Alice, I'll talk to Edward about it."
Alice finished my hair and then left me to make the bed and gather my old clothes whilst she went downstairs to help with breakfast.
By the time I made my way down to the kitchen Alice had disappeared and Edward stood at the hob wearing just his pyjama bottoms. I loved the way the muscles in his back flexed as he fried the sausages in the pan, this guy was amazing. I slowly tiptoed up to him and wrapped my arms around his waist, he was warm.
"Hi." I whispered in his ear, taking a deep breath of his scent.
"Good morning gorgeous." He replied, spinning around in my hold to face me. I giggled as he stood there in just his pants holding a spatula, such a domestic house husband. Well, not my house husband. I am so glad he can't read my mind.
Before the blush could creep up into my cheeks and distract me I lent up on my tiptoes and placed a soft kiss on his nose.
While Edward finished cooking our breakfast I decided to go and retrieve the bag that I had bought with me last night, from my car. The bag contained some clothes that Edward had left at mine.
I immediately regretted my decision as soon as I stepped outside the front door, lights were flashing everywhere I looked and the sound of people shouting pierced my ears. I quickly retreated back inside and shut the door behind me, my heart was racing and my palms were sweaty.
"What's wrong?" Edward asked, poking his head around the kitchen door.
"Outside." I gasped, trying to catch my breath, I was in shock.
Edward took a hold of my hand and pulled me away from the door, he kept my hand tightly in his while he looked through the glass panel by the side of the door. He sighed in anger as he saw the paparazzi lurking outside.
"Bella, did they see you?" He asked, pulling me into a hug.
"I think so. I'm so sorry Edward."
"You have nothing to be sorry for Bella. I'm sorry, I really didn't want you to have to suffer like this. They're never going to leave you alone."
"It's fine Edward, I knew this would happen at some point, I'm just shocked."
"We're going to have to go public Bella. If we tell them we're together then they'll get their pictures and stories and eventually they'll get bored of us."
"It's fine Edward, I wanted to talk to you about that anyway."
"I spoke to Alice earlier and she said your mum wants to set you up with Lauren." I whispered her name, my heart still heart at the thought of what Edward had done.
"Oh Bella, I love you. Not some stupid bimbo, you. I love you."
I smiled as Edward reassured me he loved me. Sure it hurt still that he had cheated on me but I knew he loved me and I knew his reasons behind it. I loved him but I wasn't ready to tell him just yet, he still needed to prove to me that he was worthy of my love.
5 years later
I sighed as I looked around the room, I still couldn't believe I was here.
I had moved into Edward's house on our first anniversary and we had quickly christened the whole house. He had suggested we buy a house together but I had quickly declined that offer, I loved his house and I wanted to make it ours.
When Rose became pregnant and stopped modeling I started to work as Edward's manager, personal assistant and publicist. I loved my job but as times it could be a little trying however I loved to be in charge of Edward's schedule and my job meant that I had to travel around the world with him, wherever he went, I went too.
"Bella?" Edward's voice called from somewhere in the house. I put down my book and left the library to find Edward. I eventually found him in the dining room, my heart sped up as I saw the sight in front of me.
Edward stood behind the table wearing black trousers and a white shirt, the table was laid for two with a candle in the middle and red rose petals scattered around. I felt underdressed in my jeans and T-shirt, which just happened to have Edward's face on it. Not many girlfriends can walk into a shop and buy an item of clothing with their boyfriend on it.
"Should I get changed?" I asked, afraid that I had missed our anniversary or my birthday.
"You look perfect." He replied, smirking as he noticed the top I was wearing.
"What's going on Edward?" I asked, giving him a skeptical look as I walked around to the other side of the table to give him a kiss.
"Bella, I love you. I know we've had a hard time, we've been through a lot these past few years but we've made it through it all and we're stronger than ever. I've never loved you as much as I do right now Bella and everyday my love for you grows. What I'm trying to say Bella is that I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you marry me?"
Tears were steadily flowing down my cheeks as Edward finally finished his speech, he had knelt down in front of me and was holding a box out to me. I took a deep breath and smiled down at him.
"Of course I'll marry you. I love you." Edward stood up and wrapped me in his arms as he kissed me all over my face.
We had been through a lot, the paparazzi had hounded us for months, we couldn't go anywhere without being followed, nor could any of our families and friends. It had caused many arguments between myself and Edward and had placed a lot of stress on our relationship but we had made it.
Edward slowly slid the ring on my finger, it fit perfectly. The ring was Edward's grandmother's, it was beautiful.
"You do realize that Alice is going to turn into bridesmaidzilla." I pointed out, giggling as the memories of Alice arranging Emmett and Roses' wedding. She had tried to take over the planning however Rose had had a lot to say about that. Luckily the girls were still talking by the time of the wedding.
"It's our wedding Bella, you're in charge. Now, would you like dinner?"
"You cooked?" I asked excitedly, I loved Edward's cooking!
Edward had cooked my favorite, mushroom ravioli, it was perfect. We ate in silence both snatching glances at each other. The sexual tension was almost too much to bare, I was beginning to eat my dinner so quickly that I didn't have a chance to taste the food.
As soon as we had both finished our last bite I stood up and walked over to Edward, his eyes were shining with excitement. I sat myself in his lap, straddling his legs as I kissed him. My fingers twisted in his hair as he deepened the kiss and I began to grind myself against Edward's trouser clad erection.
I moaned as Edward's hands made their way to my ass and began rubbing it.
"I love you." I gasped, pulling back from Edward's lips to catch my breath.
"I love you too." He replied, nibbling my neck as he stood up with my legs wrapped around his waist. I moaned loudly as he nipped and licked at my neck as he took me to bed.
