Edward and I were back in Hawaii, at the Kahala, a year later.
We'd had our own destination wedding, in the Olympic National Park, and then returned to Hawaii for our honeymoon.
It would have been too cliché to get married there.
The cabana where we'd had sex on the beach was still there and I wasn't at all surprised when Edward led me to it the first night we were there.
We came together on the lounge chair that still didn't look quite sturdy enough.
Afterward, as I lay in his arms and he nuzzled against the crown of my head, I sighed more happily than I ever thought I could. "I never doubted you'd come back to me," I murmured.
"No? Why not?"
"I threw that yellow and white lei you bought me into the ocean. It came back on the first wave. It was my lucky charm."
The response to this story has been AMAZING, STUNNING, AND TOO INCREDIBLE for proper words on screen to convey how much it means to me. Yes, shouty caps are necessary there. Thank you all so incredibly much for following me on my first attempt at an Edward and Bella story, and one in drabble form… even when it posted too slow at first.
Your reviews and the fact that you're hear reading this now making writing fun. I hope I could give you something fun with what I wrote.
