I DO NOT OWN TWILIGHT, STEPHENIE MEYER DOES (LUCKY!)
I ALSO DO NOT OWN TURNING PAGE, BY SLEEPING AT LAST
Yay, I had free time! Hello guys, thank you again to anyone who reviewed and favourited. It makes me so happy and fuzzy to go on someone's favourites and see I Remember at the top. If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to ask, okay? Hm, what has Edward planned for Bella? And what news has Bella got to tell Edward? Brace yourself guys, it all goes downhill from here!
Here is the link for the Engagement Ring (search by image)
Quil, please learn to spell Rhythm!
Ben, what made your performance good?
Eric, This handwriting is disgraceful!
Why did I decide to become a teacher? All I did was criticize kids with my red biro, teaching them music when five percent will go on to have careers to do with music. I put down the pen, and leaned back in chair, taking another sip of coffee. Bella stumbled in to the dining room in her pyjamas, holding another mug of caffeine.
"Edward, shall we go to bed now? It's midnight" she said, running her hand through her hair.
"I'd love to, but I've fifteen more books to mark" I said, dreading the next hour. She sighed, and sat next down next to me.
"Edward, you need time off. All you do is work" she mumbled, stirring her coffee thoughtfully. I looked at her in exasperation.
"Bella, unlike you, I have kids who depend on me each day" I said, more sharply than necessary. She put her hands up in defence.
"Ok, ok, Edward. Night" Bella said, kissing me. I kissed her back, and when she started to patter down the hall way to the stairs, I yelled:
"I love you!"
"I love you more!" was her reply.
I pulled up at the woodlands; a week after Bella advised I took time off. Well, today was the weekend, so it didn't really count. I had Alice take Bella shopping today, while I set up things for our anniversary. I grabbed the stuff from the trunk, and walked the short distance from the Volvo to the meadow. I had proposed in this meadow… it held so many memories.
We lay on the grass staring at the sky. Bella was silent and I reached into my pocket for the small black box which would change everything.
"Bella?" I said, opening it.
"Hm?" she murmured, keeping her eyes closed. I took a deep breath.
"Isabella Marie Swan, will you marry me?" I asked, going for the simplest way of saying it. The way she would like it.
Her eyes flew open, and she gasped at the sight of the ring. It was gold, with a large round garnet in the middle, surrounded by silver. Tears streamed down her face, as she whispered "Yes"
I started straight away, and surprisingly I was done by midday. I didn't leave; I just lay in the grass, under the sun, and let myself drift…
I was awaken at twilight, with a text message from Alice.
We're on our way ;) - Alice
I sprung up, and started the trek through the trees to meet them. I reached the Volvo in five minutes, and found Bella waiting. She looked breathtaking, in a sleeveless cream dress that reached her ankles, with a knee length gold cardigan on top. She was leaning on the Volvo's hood, staring the in the other direction and she hadn't noticed me yet. I quietly crept up to her, and grabbed her waist. She yelped, and I spun her around to capture her lips. Her fingers intertwined themselves in my hair, and I pinned her to the car's hood, still making out with her furiously. Soon we had to come up for air, and she smirked at me.
"Hey" I said, tracing her features.
"Hey yourself" Bella replied, gazing at me with her beautiful brown eyes. I pulled her up again, careful not to make her stumble. My Bella was not the most graceful of people.
"So, where we going?" she asked, as I started to walk into the woods. I tapped my nose, and she grabbed my hand, squeezing it with her delicate fingers. We walked slowly through the trees, hand in hand, watching the slanting sun. We reached the meadow in a matter of minutes, and she gasped as she saw what lay before her. I had set up a canopy, with gold curtains falling from it, and fairy lights wrapped around it. There was a fire place in the middle, already dancing, with cushions and a loveseat scattered around it. There was a low table with take away Italian laid out on it, her favourite, and bottles of champagne. She turned to me, with tears in her eyes.
"Edward… this is beyond belief. It's perfect" she choked, throwing her arms around me. I returned her embrace, and kissed behind her ear, making her laugh quietly. I then scooped her up, and we sat on the loveseat. It was gold, to match the canopy, and had intricate swirls on it. She snuggled up to me, and reached for a piece of garlic bread, before I stopped her.
"Not yet, Bella. First I have to show you something" I said, before reaching for my guitar from underneath a cushion. She smiled, probably remembering the other songs I'd written her.
"I've been working on this for a few months" I told her; she nodded, and gestured for me to begin. I took a deep breath, and sang:
I've waited a hundred years. If I had only felt the warmth within your touch, Your love is my turning page, I surrender who I've been for who you are, Though we're tethered to the story we must tell,
But I'd wait a million more for you.
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do.
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush,
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough,
I would have known what I was living for all along.
What I've been living for.
Where only the sweetest words remain.
Every kiss is a cursive line,
Every touch is a redefining phrase.
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart.
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours,
Well, I would have known what I've been living for all along.
What I've been living for.
When I saw you, well, I knew we'd tell it well.
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious scenes.
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees.
If I had only felt the warmth within your touch,
Your love is my turning page,
I surrender who I've been for who you are,
Though we're tethered to the story we must tell,
Bella started sobbing, and I immediately dropped the instrument, and rushed to her.
"Bella? What's wrong?" I asked, shaking her.
"Oh Edward!" she whispered, "I've got Cancer"
Oooooh! I love that song so much! It's so beautiful. Guys, please review! I haven't got any for the last chapter, and it makes me so happy. Sorry it's a bit short- I'm more of a regular updates, shorter chapters sort of girl. Next chapter out by Sunday the 8th.
Until next time
