So, I got this idea randomly one night while looking through different mommy blogs. One of them suddenly sparked an idea and I opened up word and just started typing so here is the finished product.
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
In a few minutes, (Almost) hubward will arrive home and after he changes, we will be leaving for JFK international. I can't believe in a little over a week, we'll be married. It's insane! To me, it feels like just yesterday that I met the big city boy who moved to my small town. I honestly don't know how I got so lucky...
"Bella?" Edward called out as he entered our one bedroom apartment.
"Front room," I called back.
Speaking of hubward, he has just arrived home which means it's time to get a move on. I'll make sure to update you guys later tonight, probably before I go to bed.
Talk to you later, Isabella Swan (Soon to be Cullen)
I hit post and jumped up just as Edward entered our small front room.
"Hi, baby," I said, smiling.
"Hello, Love." Edward pulled me into his arms and brushed his lips across mine. "Are you ready to go?"
"You know it," I said, beaming. "You, on the other hand, need to go change. We have a flight to catch in a little under two hours."
He looked down at his watch, "Give me five minutes?"
"Take as long as you need," I said, kissing his chin.
"I'll hurry," Edward let me go and jogged into our bedroom to change into something more comfortable for our five-hour flight to Washington.
While Edward changed, I went around our apartment and made sure everything was turned off. Since Edward I wouldn't return to New York for at least a month, I wanted to make sure we still had an apartment to come back too.
So, After I was sure nothing would cause the apartment to start fire when we were away, I went back to the front room and packed my laptop and a couple magazines for the flight.
"Alright, I'm ready," Edward announced, coming out of our bedroom in a pair of jeans and a black t-shirt.
"Great, let's go wait outside for the cab."
Edward carried our bags downstairs while I locked up our apartment. I was halfway down the stairs when I remembered I forgot my carry on so I ran back upstairs, grabbed it, locked up, and then ran back downstairs.
By the time I made it outside, the cab was here and Edward and the cab driver were loading the bags into the trunk.
"Where to?" The driver asked.
"JFK international, please," Edward said as we slid into the backseat. Edward draped his arm around my shoulder and pulled me close before pressing his lips to the side of my head.
"Can you believe we only have a week before we get married?" I asked as Edward fiddled with the ring on my finger.
"I can," Edward said, smiling at me. "I've been waiting for this day since the day I met you."
I smiled up at him, "Me too. It just seems so crazy, a good crazy don't worry, that it's finally time."
"No cold feet, right?"
"Nope, my feet are toasty," I said. "I can't wait until I'm Mrs. Cullen." I told him, honestly.
"I can't wait for that either," Edward suddenly smirked. "Or the honeymoon,"
I laughed, "Of course you'd be excited by that."
"And you're not?" he asked.
"Oh, I am." I promised. "But I think I'd be even more excited if you told me where you were taking me."
"You'll find out soon enough."
"Please," I pouted. "Please."
"You know I'd give you anything." I smiled widely, thinking he was going to reveal the location of our honeymoon. "But not this time, love."
I pouted again.
"It's hard, ain't it?" The driver asked Edward with a laugh.
"Very," Edward confirmed.
"I'm the same way with my wife," he said. 'We've been married for forty years now and she can still get me with that one simple look."
"She can get me that easy as well," Edward said, smiling at me. "I just want her to be surprised."
"How long do you have until she sees this mystery location?"
"Eight days," Edward said.
"You don't have a chance, my boy."
I started laughing, "So, I just have to keep trying? Okay, I can do that."
Edward groaned and pressed his face into my neck.
"You two remind me a lot of my wife, Debbie, and I," The driver mused. "Don't ever let her go, son."
"Never," Edward promised, kissing my cheek.
"Alright, here we are," The nice taxi driver, announced. "JFK international."
"Thank you," Edward said as he pulled out his wallet.
"No, its okay," He said. "This ride is free of charge."
"You don't have to do that," I said.
"I want too,"
"Thank you...uh, I'm sorry, I didn't get your name." I said, apologetically.
"Thank you, Marcus," I said. "You're very kind."
Marcus smiled and helped Edward retrieve the bags out of the trunk.
"Have a wonderful wedding, and honeymoon," Marcus said as he placed my suitcase in front of me.
I grabbed one of my suitcases and headed into the airport with Edward so that we could check in. After we went through security, we headed hand in hand to our gate to wait for our flight to be called.
"Are you hungry?" Edward asked.
"Starving," I said. "How much time do we have?"
"About forty five minutes," Edward said. "We should be fine. Come on,"
I grabbed Edward's hand and we went in search of something to eat. We decided on burger king, as it was the closest.
"Besides the wedding, what are you most excited about?" Edward asked as we sat down with our food.
"I'm excited to see everyone," I said. "And I'm excited to visit the places that meant so much to us as teens."
"Me too," Edward agreed. "I can't wait to visit our meadow."
My eyes lit up with excitement, "That has to be one of the first places we go visit."
"How about tomorrow morning, you accompany me on a job, and we'll go there?"
"It'll take us hours to get there," I warned him. "You know I'm not a good jogger...or walker,"
Edward chuckled, "I'm very aware of that, Love, but that's okay."
"Alright, sounds like a plan." I said.
The meadow is where Edward and I first met. Angela, my older sister, wanted to go jogging but she didn't want to go alone so I tagged along. Since I always seemed to lack the necessary coordination to run, I fell behind and eventually ended up getting lost in the woods.
I was running blindly through the woods, calling Angela's name when I stumbled into this beautiful circular meadow. And that's where I found Edward.
He was sitting in the middle of the meadow with his eyes closed and the sun shining on him like a spotlight. He looked so peaceful, so content, that I felt bad for disturbing him.
"Despite how freaked out you looked, that was still a great day," Edward said as if he knew I was remembering.
I laughed, "It was. I still find it funny that the guy who just moved to Forks was able to get me out of the woods in a matter of minutes."
"I marked the trail," Edward said. "I'm sure my parents wouldn't have liked it if I got lost in the woods and ended up dying."
I snorted, "That's an understatement, babe."
After we finished eating, we made a quick stop at the bathrooms before heading to our gate and boarding the plane.
