"What are you?" Bella whispered. "You're too fast. Too strong. Too beautiful to be real."

Edward wondered if he should tell her now, while she dreamed. Perhaps, if he planted the seed, she would realize how dangerous it was to ask so many questions.

"No. Stay." Her voice was stronger, agitated although she didn't wake. "I love you."

He froze. Shocked.

He wanted to tell her he loved her, too. But he knew better.

If there was anything he was, it was dangerous. Too dangerous for her.

He just prayed she wouldn't hate him when she found out the truth.
