"Bella I expect you to have made some decisions before I return tomorrow evening. This is your wedding we are talking about."
I rolled my eyes as I tuned out what Alice was saying. It was as if it was her wedding she was planning, not mine and Edward's. I didn't understand the need to go over the top with the planning. Everyone who was attending the wedding lived in this house.
"Yes yes I promise you I will think about the planning and will make some decisions, although we both know you won't be pleased with them and will change them."
"You know me too well. You never know, I could actually like something you choose. Right I had better say goodbye now if Edward is going to try to work with your gift."
Alice pulled me into a tight hug and kissed my cheek.
"I love you Bella."
"I love you too Alice. Stay safe."
I watched as Alice got into the car with the other Cullens, Eleazar and Carmen. I had already said goodbye to the others who had just been waiting for Alice to stop lecturing me about my wedding and for her to actually get in the car. I felt an arm wrap around my waist and I automatically leaned into my fiancé's touch. The Cullen family and two members of the Denali family were off to Forks for mine and Edward's funeral in two days time. They were going back to their house in Forks for tomorrow evening before attending the funeral then coming back the following evening. Kate, Tanya and Irina had wanted to go but Carlisle had said it wasn't a good idea. Everyone knew Irina really wanted to go so she could avenge her mate Laurent by killing the werewolves. Carlisle didn't want her to start a war so had instructed her sisters to keep obeyed. It was known between the Cullens and the Quileutes that more boys would change if there were more vampires again. Eleazar and Carmen were going to the funeral to show that Edward had extended family that cared about him. It was a joint funeral and not all about me. I just hoped Jacob Black wouldn't start anything and kick off. Edward and I waved to our family as they started the engine off and drove off. Edward smiled at me before leaning in and kissing me.
"I love you Isabella Swan soon to be Cullen."
"I love you too Edward Cullen will still be Cullen."
Edward's beautiful laughter filled the air and I just smiled at him. I loved his laughter. I loved how happy he seemed. He was completely different and freer than when I had been a human.
"Are you ready?"
"Yeah let's do this thing."
Edward led me to a clearing a little further away from the house. He was trying to help me learn how to expand my shield further than my own mind. As we came to a stop, I saw Kate coming towards us. I immediately smiled at her.
"Is there room for one more?"
"Of course there is. Where are Tanya and Irina?"
"They're playing chess. I was too bored to stay and watch them. I thought I'd bother you two instead."
I laughed at Kate's words. She sat down on the grass close to us to watch the training session. I turned to face Edward.
"How are we going to do this Edward?"
Edward suddenly looked puzzled before he turned to look at Kate who was now standing up and walking over to us.
"Do you think that would work?"
I was so confused what was happening. I watched as Kate seemed to be sending her thoughts to Edward. My fiancé came over to me and took my hand.
"Kate wants to try something. She has the gift of psychic electro kinesis and can create an electrical current when she wants when touching someone. Depending on the power, it can vary between a small static shock and a huge shock that causes them to fall to the ground. We want to see if you can stop Kate from shocking me."
I clenched my fists and tried to concentrate on my shield as Kate reached out to touch Edward's palm. No matter how hard I tried, Edward received a shock and ended up falling to his knees.
"Ow Kate! Bella love, how about we try that again? Really concentrate."
I nodded and decided to picture my shield as a rubber band. I imagined it stretching out and reaching Edward. I held it in place, feeling determined as Kate reached out to touch Edward's palm. I held my breath and watched as she touched him. Nothing happened. Edward wasn't shocked. Kate frowned and touched Edward's palm again. Nothing happened again. Edward turned to me with a massive grin on his face.
"Well done love! You did it!"
He swept me up in his arms and spun me around, causing me to shriek and giggle. He captured my lips in a kiss and I kissed back, wrapping my arms around his neck. Edward deepened the kiss and held me tightly against him.
"As lovely as it is to watch you two kiss, can we please see if Bella can stop you hearing my thoughts Edward?"
Edward slowly lowered me down and turned to look at Kate, wrapping an arm around his waist.
"Ok let's see if she can do that. Bella, focus your shield on Kate now."
I turned to look at Kate and once again imagined the rubber band stretching out and reaching Kate. I didn't know if it was working or not as I couldn't hear Kate's thoughts myself. I suddenly heard Edward gasp.
"I can't hear anything. I can't hear Kate's thoughts. Oh my God Bella you can shield others, not just yourself."
"Yes I'm sure we just discovered I could do that when I stopped Kate from shocking you."
I grinned at Edward to show I was joking but once again I was swept up into his arms and spun around. Edward and I shared a loving and passionate kiss, allowing our love for one another to consume the other. When we pulled apart I glanced in Kate's direction to find the vampire wasn't there.
"I wonder where Kate's gone."
"She decided to give us some privacy as we were too sickening for her to handle."
"Yeah that sounds like something she would say."
"We're all alone."
I grinned at the direction Edward's thoughts seemed to be going.
"Yes Edward we are."
"No Emmett to tease us or interrupt us."
I sighed in relief at that thought.
"That's true. Now what do you suggest we do?"
Before I could say anything or do anything, Edward had lifted me over his shoulder and was running back towards the house at full speed. I shrieked at what was happening and just laughed at Edward's behaviour. He burst through the front door, ran up the doors and kicked the door open to get into our bedroom. Edward tossed me onto the bed before shutting the door quickly. Edward stood at the end of the bed watching me as if I was his prey. I propped myself up on my elbows and smiled seductively at him.
"Are you just going to stare at me all day?"
Suddenly Edward flew across the room and was on top of me, pressing his body to mine. He was kissing me passionately before moving down and kissing my neck, placing a kiss on my bite mark.
Alice burst into mine and Edward's bedroom and scowled at us.
"How long have you been in that bed?"
Edward and I smirked at one another.
"Well after you left we had a training session so... since then."
"Oh my God! Get up now and get dressed! Everyone's downstairs."
I groaned but I knew I had to get up. It was so weird to have been in bed for so long but not sleeping. Alice left the room and I got up and slipped on some underwear and a dress. I noticed Edward was just lying in bed looking at me.
"Edward you have to get up now! We have to go downstairs."
"I'm just admiring your beauty."
I knew if I had been human I would have blushed.
Edward got up out of bed and quickly got dressed. We left the room hand in hand and made our way downstairs to the living room. Everyone was there. Emmett was grinning at us when we walked in. Tanya laughed when she saw us.
"Wow you've actually left the bedroom."
This was so embarrassing. I suddenly felt a wash of calm hit me and I smiled at Jasper.
"How was the funeral? How was my Dad? How was my Mum?"
Edward led me to a sofa and sat down, before pulling me into his lap. Carlisle stood up, still holding hands with Esme.
"Your funeral was beautiful. It was obviously incredibly sad and practically everyone there was crying. Your friends and family made speeches about the two of you. Your father remained strong throughout the funeral but did cry at the end. Your mother cried throughout but was comforted by Phil. Your father was comforted by Billy Black and Sue Clearwater. Jacob Black wasn't at the funeral as Charlie had banned him. Apparently Charlie overheard Jacob telling Billy that he preferred you being dead to you being with Edward. Charlie didn't take that too likely and was furious a friend of yours could say that. Your mother and father just hope you're happy and I told them I'm sure the two of you are happy together."
I couldn't believe my family thought I was dead when I was living. I knew I was a vampire and technically I was the living dead but they thought I wasn't living anymore.
"I wanted to find that mutt and rip his limbs off when I heard he said that. Unfortunately Carlisle remembered me about the treaty we have going with the wolves so I couldn't do that. Sorry Bellsy-boo."
I smiled at Emmett, "It's okay Emmett.
"The town were very interested in Eleazar and Carmen. I think it was a shock to them that we had other family members."
I smirked at Esme's words. The people of Forks were shocked by anything. They were a nosey bunch but I had found some friends there. I just hoped they would all find happiness in their own lives as it was highly unlikely we would ever return to Forks. Suddenly Alice jumped to her feet.
"Anyway... Edward and Bella, have you discussed the wedding at all?"
I turned to Edward and he smiled encouragingly.
"Alice we have. We've decided we would like to invite all of you to the wedding..."
Everyone in the room laughed at my words.
"...we would like a wedding outside as it's so beautiful at the moment. Alice and Rose, I would love for you to be my bridesmaids."
"I'd be honoured Bella. Thank you so much."
"Yay Bella! Thank you! I want to be Maid of Honour though."
Edward quickly interrupted her.
"And we would like Carlisle to be our minister for us please. Emmett, Jasper, you're both my brothers and I love you. I would love for both of you to be my best man."
"Thank you Edward, I love you too."
"Hell to the yeah Eddie! Of course I will bro! Love you too."
I smiled at my family's reactions, feeling so excited for a wedding with all of them involved.
"Alice, we just want a small, simple and classy wedding. We're giving you full reign of planning. I know it'll be perfect."
Suddenly I was pulled out of Edward's lap and into Alice's arms.
"Thank you Bella! You won't regret it. I was waiting for that since your engagement!"
Everyone laughed and I was pulled back into Edward's lap where I snuggled into his chest. Everything was perfect. I glanced down at my engagement ring on my left hand and smiled at it. I couldn't wait to be an official Cullen. Edward and I would be together forever.
