A/N: I wonder if you guys can help me. I'm looking for a story: it is where Edward dumps Bella but stays in Forks so she will be more likely to move on. They do a play of Romeo and Juliet together plus the Volturi find out about Bella and give her a choice to be a vampire or die. She chooses to die as she believes Edward doesn't want her. Thanks. Here's the next chapter.
I felt so peaceful lying on the bed, holding Bella in my arms. I was humming her lullaby to help soothe her whilst her wounds healed.I wanted to rip Jacob Black to pieces for what he did to my Bella. I wondered if Bella meant what she said to the mutt.My love had never been one to hold a grudge; for one she had forgiven my family and I when we left her. As I was thinking Alice's voice came into my mind.
'Edward its Bella'. Her futures blank!'
I took immediate interest in her thoughts. Carlisle had promised me and Alice had even seen it that Bella would recover. Did this mean that she had forgiven the dog?I looked down at my angel with her eyes closed. I gently tapped her on the nose to get her attention.
'Hello? Bella love? Bella can you hear me?'
Bella opened her eyes and looked at me. In my mind I knew if she was human she would be blushing.
'Sorry Edward I was just thinking.'
'Yes about that. Why has your future gone blank? Carlisle has promised me you will definitely recover. You're going to see that dog again aren't you?'
I tried to keep the pain out of my voice but failed. Bella raised her hand and rested it on my cheek. I sighed and closed my eyes, placing my own hand over hers to keep it in place.I never wanted to let her go.
'I decided I would phone Jacob as I hate holding grudges. It'll always be on the back of my mind. I want to move past it.I don't want to give him the satisfaction of Jacob thinking that what he said is always annoying me. I want to tell him that he isn't my best friend but I'm not holding a grudge.We both need to move on in our lives and accept it. If he can't he's just a pathetic mutt.'
The last sentence made me chuckle. I felt all my insecurities disappear.
'I want to move on my life with you. You're the man I love. Jacob was always just a friend to me who wanted more and would never get it.It doesn't help that I'm a vampire and he's a werewolf. Jacob is very prejudiced towards vampires due to the fact I always chose you.I'm not going to be held back by a werewolf in my life. I'm going to enjoy eternity with you and everything it brings!'
I looked at Bella with love in my eyes. I loved her so much and wanted her so much. I knew I could still hurt her with the wounds she had.I carefully leaned down so my torso wasn't touching Bella's and kissed her so passionately the room could have set on fire and I wouldn't have noticed.I pulled away and kissed my lips softly several times again.
'I love you Isabella Marie Swan.'
'As I love you Edward Anthony Mason Cullen'.
'That's just the way it is.'
Bella smiled at my words and carefully moved so she could kiss me without hurting herself. After a couple of minutes she pulled away and snuggled back into my side.I began humming her lullaby again. I closed my eyes with a smile of my face; my crooked smile that Bella loved so much. I felt so peaceful and content.Bella had chosen me and wanted me. I had known this all along but now for definite after everything we had been through she wanted me.I hated Jacob Black for hurting my Bella and trying to take her away from me. I could happily say she didn't love him. Bella was my life and I was hers.I felt Bella rest her head on my chest and I started to stroke her beautiful hair. To my horror Bella let out a moan and hid her face on my chest.She was trying to hide her pain but I knew better and tried to soothe her.
'Edward I've decided to take the family out for a hunt in three quarters of an hour. Leave you and Bella alone to get some rest. Alice said you'll want to be alone.'
'Have fun Edward.'
'It's ok love. It's nearly over. You're so brave. One more hour. That's all. I know you can do it. We'll spend the rest of the time in here all alone.Carlisle is going to take everyone out for a hunt in forty five minutes. I'll be here with you all the way. I love you my sweet angel. All the pain will be gone soon.'
I sounded choked up as I told her this. I knew I couldn't leave Bella's side at all and I had no intention of breaking my promise.Bella lifted her head off of my chest and her red eyes looked into his topaz eyes.
'I love you too. You're my angel. I hold you to the promise of us being alone for the rest of the day. Please don't blame yourself for this. Just hold me for the last bit of this.'
'Always my love.'
I kissed my temple and resumed stroking her hair. The last hour slowly came around. Bella cried out, muffled her screams in my chest, sobbed tearless sobs and kicked outbut I stayed with her the whole time, refusing to leave and calming her down. I announced when the others had left meaning Bella had fifteen minutes of pain left to endure.I continuously hummed my lullaby to help her. If Bella's arms and legs jerked out I would grab them and hold her until she calmed down.As the time counted down I could see my wounds closing.
'One minute left.'
Bella nodded and I kissed her nose. I slowly counted in my head, watching as Bella seemed to be doing the same and breathing heavily to control her pain.My heart was pained to see my love like this. When I reached sixty seconds I was relieved to know her suffering was over.
'Love it's over!'
I looked down and did Bella to see no evidence whatsoever that she had been attacked by a mutt that couldn't control its temper. Bella looked at me and kissed me passionately.I smiled into the kiss and eagerly responded after holding back for what seemed like eternity. We rolled around on the bed until Bella was lying on top of me.I looked into Bella's eyes and saw they were glazed with lust and love; just like I knew my own to be. Bella started fiddling with my shirt buttons and decided to start undoing them.My left hand, I realised, was resting on Bella's left breast. I suddenly realised what this could lead to and felt extremely nervous. Did Bella want this? Would I hurt her?What if I did something wrong and she left me?
'Bella love...love are you sure about this? I mean...that'll mean we'll be mates...mates for life and what if...you change your mind?'
Bella responded to this by kissing me, putting her emotions into the kiss and showing me how much she loved me and wanted me.
'Edward you never see yourself clearly. I love you and I want to be with you forever. Of course we're mates. I will never ever change my mind you hear me Edward Cullen.I love you too much.'
'I love you too my Isabella.'
The kissing started up again, sweet and gentle at first but becoming passionate. Bella and I made love and became proper mates that day,showing one another how much love we had for the other.
After making love Bella and I just laid in one another's arms, both grinning like a mad man.
'I can't believe we did that.'
'I know. It's so strange to think how you are with me when I was human and how you are with me when I'm a vampire.'
'Well love you were so weak and fragile. You could have been hurt. Now you're a vampire you're strong.'
'Thanks for saying I'm not weak and fragile. Emmett would probably argue with that.'
'Speaking of Emmett, you know he's going to tease us horrendously.'
I sighed when I thought of my brother's teasing. Bella shifted her body so she was propped up on her elbow looking at me.
'What do you mean?'
I caressed her cheek then ran my finger over her lips.
'Bella love I've been a virgin all my life. I know to the world I'm a 17 year old so it wouldn't matter if I was a virgin but in reality I'm 109.Emmett loves that film 'The 40 year old virgin' and loves taking the mick of me. The fact that I'm not a virgin anymoreand the fact you aren't even will brighten up his entire world and he will thoroughly enjoy taking the 'piss' out of the two of us.'
Bella sighed, knowing this to be true.
'Oh well we'll face him together like the couple we are.'
I smiled at my mate as she said this.
'Excellent idea Miss Swan.'
I cupped Bella's cheek and kissed her softly but full of love.
'We better get dressed. The family will be back soon. How about watching a movie?'
'Anything but 'The 40 year old virgin' ok?'
I laughed at this and kissed her again. We slowly got dressed and put our clothes on that had been thrown about the room.I turned to look at the bed. We hadn't caused much damage at all. Of course Bella noticed me and looked at me with a confused look.
'What are you doing?'
'We did better than Rose and Emmett. They break bed, trash houses...it's awful. Plus the images in the brain...I really do not need.'
Bella giggled at this. I pretended to be hurt by the fact Bella had laughed at my pain. To my delight Bella wrapped her arms around my waist and kissed my neck.
'Cheer up honey. Now let's go and watch a movie.'
'As you wish.'
Inspired by my words Bella picked the film 'A Princess Bride' about Princess Buttercup and Westley with Cary Elwes and Robyn Wright.Bella told me it had always been a favourite of hers and I would never deny her what she wanted. I had seen the film a couple of times and had enjoyed it.Watching it with my mate would be the most enjoyable time. I put the DVD in and went to press play but Bella stopped me. I was completely confused by this.
'Edward I'm going to use the phone.'
Understanding flooded through me. She wanted to call the mutt.
'I won't eavesdrop.'
Bella rolled at her eyes at me. She knew me too well. Of course I wanted to know what that mutt was going to say.
'Sure whatever you say Edward.'
Bella winked at me as she left the room, taking the phone with her. I chuckled to myself and picked up the DVD case for something to pretend to be doing whilst Bella was on the phone.I heard the mutt's voice and moved my head closer to the door.
'Hello Black residence.'
'Jacob it's Bella.'
'Bella! Are you ok? Have the wounds healed?'
'Yeah they've healed.'
'Good so I guess everything's fine again, except the fact you're a bloodsucker.'
'Don't hold back dog. Look Jacob I'm not one to hold grudges. I accept your apology but I don't want you in my life. We need to move on with our lives.We're mortal enemies. I'll be leaving soon and it'll just make our lives easier.'
I was trying not to shout from my rooftops with glee. Bella wasn't holding back herself.
There was no answer but only heavy breathing.
'Did he tell you to say this? Did that leech?'
I growled quietly at this; why was he under the impression I was controlling her? He was obviously in denial.
'Don't you dare insult Edward! No he didn't tell me to say anything. I decided this. We need to move on. You used to be my best friend but all that has changed.I wish you well in life whatever happens but I won't be part of it.
That's my girl.
'Bella you can't do this.'
'I'm with Edward and one day will be a Cullen. I'm technically a Cullen but one day it'll be official. You'll meet a girl one day and imprint on her but it's not me and it never will be.'
That idea struck in my mind. Bella Cullen. I liked it. Isabella Marie Cullen.
I tensed, knowing what was coming.
'Me or Edward and the other bloodsuckers.'
That stupid mutt. I wanted him dead.
'Edward and my family.'
I took a deep breath, thanking the heavens Bella loved me.
I heard Jacob snarl.
Bella hung up and sighed. I felt as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. She walked back and sat on the sofa next to meso I lifted her onto my lap as I could tell Bella needed me.
'How did it go?'
'Like you weren't listening?'
Bella laughed at my obvious lie but snuggled into my lap. I picked up the remote and pressed 'play' for the movie. We enjoyed our time alone before our family came back from their hunt.I knew Bella and I I should prepare for the interrogation that was coming, especially from Alice and Emmett.
