Oh how attitudes and plans can change in three days. Turns out my 'college' thing isn't happening due to bad reviews and disheartening promises.. so onward to the next interest. :(
This is the end. I'm sort of sad to see this one go but glad that I've shared it with wonderful people of this fandom.
You were right, sweetheart, as always.
We watch our baby boy walk across the stage and my heart feels like it's going to explode with the amount of pride I have for him.
Noah is graduating top of his class and headed across country to intern with one of the world's most successful architectural designers.
He's going to be big, or so Aro told us when he personally invited my baby across the United States to work with him.
I haven't gotten over the fact that he won't be right down the hall anymore.
I know you're feeling the same.
It broke your heart when Noah decided to take this internship, but it didn't help that a few days prior Nate decided to stay in the dorms for his sophomore year at college
Sure he'll come to visit when there's laundry to be done or a pantry to be stocked, but I know it's not the same.
Our boys have grown to be spectacularly wonderful and successful men, and they only strive to make us proud.
Just think... we're going to have the house to ourselves for the first time in twenty-three years.
It's time to let them go, baby.
"You'll call the second you get to your hotel?"
He rolls his eyes and I hear you snort, but I don't care.
I can't believe you're letting him drive all the way to California, Edward.
He's known for pushing himself too far and I dread the phone call from a state patrol officer telling me he's fallen asleep at the wheel.
"We'll call, Mrs. Cullen. I promise."
I almost want to ignore the other reason he's decided to take this internship instead of one closer to home.
Noah met Jane in junior high and now she's taking my baby boy.
I have to pry your fingers from the driver's side door so he can go and it hurts me to do so, baby. Trust in that.
We knew this day would come.
He's going to trek off to California and make a huge name for himself to make us proud while his brother finishes school.
And he might marry the girl that's stolen his heart since junior high, but that's his prerogative, baby,
Jane's a good girl with a head on her shoulders and she looks at our son the way you used to look at me.
The way you still do.
Their car turned off our street thirty minutes ago, but I haven't moved.
"I always knew you loved him more than me," Nate laughs as he sits on the sidewalk next to me and hands me a cup of lemonade. "You didn't shed one tear for me when I told you I wanted to dorm this year."
I turn to him and remember the day he told us that he was different from other boys in his class.
How afraid he was that we'd react badly.
I wrap my arm around him.
"I didn't cry until you left the room."
The house is unbelievably quiet now that they're gone.
I keep walking past Noah's bedroom expecting to hear him listening to classical music, but the halls are silent, and half of Nates's belongings are now sitting in a dorm on campus.
You find me sitting on Noah's bed looking at his grade school photos.
"Missing them already, baby?"
I nod and scoot over to give you some room.
You're holding something behind your back as you take a seat.
You lovingly kiss my cheek and place a small box in my hand.
A twenty-four pack of red crayons.
And I do..
So it's not included but I imagine sweet swoonworthy Edward whisks Bella to the beach house to spend the rest of their days in the place where it all began. Noah becomes the next big thing in the archetectural design world, marries Jane and gives them loads of grandbabies to spoil rotten. Nate and his lifepartner adopt animals that wander into the animal practice they open up together.
Everyone lives happily ever after.
I want to thank everyone that gave this story a chance. I'd apologize for ruining everyone's standards when it comes to men but I've got more swoony stories up my sleeve. What can I say? Fluff might be my new addiction.
Special thanks go to my wonderful beta k8ln713, without her my chapters would look like my AN's full of grammatical errors
to V my proofreader, without her near constant nagging I would probably give up writing and spend my days looking at porns.. it's true
My next story: Serendipity is being posted right after I hit the complete button. It's another drabble. It's another cute as hell Edward. Go check it out :D
Serendipity: Any other person would have thrown away the busted camera but something told Edward to search for the owner B..A SW.N. E&B Drabble 151 chapters 150 words each.
