Another Cinderella

Reaching Paradise

(Bella's POV.)

At first my cheeks turned bright red, then i looked around the room, being very fastidious. There on his couch wa Edward, sleeping silently. Everytime since the ball that i've seen him it reminds me of how much i had liked reallyhidden, how much i had liked Edward. Of course i've liked him since the first time we kissed, but i couldn't accept it. i knew it was true, but i just wasn't sure if i wanted it to be. Not to mention the fact that he was a player at hte time. I sighed, i might as well talk about the ball now, though i hate to wake him up. But i don't think i'll be able to look at him the same until then though. I got off hte bed and crouched by his head.

"Edward? Can you wake up? I need to talk to you." I whispered. He didn't move. Oh, well. It'll have to wait till the morning. I stood then looked over at his cd's might as well see what he's got. I was still on the first rack when i felt arms go around me.

"You called?" came Edward's voice in my ear. I smiled and turned around, my arms hooking around his neck.

"Why yes I did Mr. Cullen." I lookedin his sad eyes.

"What's wrong?" Why didn't you tell me?" I looked away from him to the wall.

"Look at me Bella, tell me. Why the others and not me?"

"I don't know Edward, i guess i just didn't want for you to think of me as a freak."

"Why would I ever think that Bella?"

"Because i am one."

"No your not." He said sternly.

"Weren't, aren't, and will never be a freak. Not to me atleast." I smiled slowly at him.

"Does that mean i'm forgiven." I asked.

"That depends, am I?" I stared at him confused.

"For what?"

"What happened at the ball?"

"Oh." I thought some before coming up with my decision. I looked up at him and stood on my tip toes. My lips touched his lightly.

"Does that answer your question?" I smiled smugly.

"Yes. Yes it does." His lips captured mine again as he leaned down. It was sweet and gentle, but quickly grew deep and passionate. I pulled back, gasping for breath. We smiled at each other before being drawn into each other once more.

"We should stop and get some rest." He suggested. I nodded as I let go. I walked back to the bed, him to the couch. I was already under the sheets when i said.

"Can you sleep with me?" He looked confused at first then smiled as he climbed in. He wrapped his arms around me underneath the sheets, tucking me in close to him.

"i love you Edward." I said quietly.

"I love you too bella." He said then kissed the top of my head. I smiled before finally falling into a blissful sleep.

I had finally reached paradise.
