It's a Love Story
I got tired of waiting...
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading...
When i met you on the outskirts of town...
Romeo save me, i've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come...
I waited for an hour, just to see if he would actually come after me. When he didn't show, i walked back to my truck and started down the road. Him not coming had permanently made my decision. I'm leaving Forks. Not foor forever of course, but just a few years. I want things to settle down first and for the wedding to be over. I turned on the radio and Love Story was on. I listened to it, not really paying attention, as i drove down the road. If i thought about it, i would have said it described us perfectly.
I was on the outskirts of Forks, getting ready to continue on to Seattle for my flight. That's when i saw a silver volvo driving past. The next thing i knew, my phone was ringing. I really didn't want to talk to him, but i picked up anyway.
"Hello?" I said.
"Bella, stop on the side of the road, i'm turning around."
"Edward.." He hung up before i could finish. I debated whether or not to do as he said before deciding i would. I pulled over to the curbing. It wasn't long though until he was parked in front of me. I climbed out and met him in between our cars.
"What is it Edward? I have a plane to catch."
"I know, that's why i called you. I wanted to apologize."
"It's a bit too late for that Edward. Besides, you could have said that on the phone." I started to turn but he grabbed my arm.
"Please Bella, just listen." I stared into his eyes and saw the seriousness they held
"Fine, but hurry up."
"Ok." He took a deep breath before beginning.
"When i first saw you at the ball, i couldn't help but stare. You were the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. But i could tell from that one glance that you were more than your beauty. I could tell that you were smart, clever, independent, and not afraid to speak your mind."
"You got all of that just from one glance?" I asked, not believing him.
"Let me finish." I nodded and he continued.
"So that's what made me follow you out and ask you to dance. Later on i found out everything i had thought was true and more. You were caring, passionate, and forgiving. When I came to your house that night, i was a bit surprised you had come with me. I had wanted to learn more about you. That's when i started falling in love with you. As days and weeks passed, we became closer and I was sure of it. Then came the night at your dads'. I absolutely hated to leave you, but i knew i had to. I didn't want you to get into any trouble because of me. I had wanted you to remember that i loved you, but i thought that wouldn't help any either. So i lied to you. That was the worst decision of my life."
By now he had stepped closer and was only standing about a foot away from me.
"After what's happened these past few days, i realized i could never live without you. With some encouragement, i came after you. I realized how bad i had actually messed up. I also realized that no matter how much i tried, i couldn't live without you. Then earlier when you said you were leaving, i had no idea what to think. After you left the house, everyone started telling me to run after you. To stop you from leaving. Then Tanya did something that really surprised me, that's what made my final decision. I knew i had to catch you before you flew away. I just had to make a decision first. Then we passed each other on the road and i decided to call you. I really needed to tell you something. Well, i have to ask you something as well."
Is this in my head, i don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
Edward knelt on the ground before me. From his pocket he pulled out a velvet covered box.
Oh god. I thought.
He said marry me Juliet
you'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all i really know
"I love you with all my heart, for forever and eternity..."
I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
"I talked to Charlie before and he said it was alright. Alice has plans."
I'll be the prince and you'll be the princess
"Bella, will you marry me?"
It's a love story baby just say...
"Yes." I answered. Tears were flowing down my cheeks as i smiled hugely at him. He slid the ring onto my finger and stood up. Grabbing me around the waist, he twirled me around. When he stopped, he leaned down to kiss me. I wrapped my arms around his neck, while his arms did the same to my waist. When we finally pulled back to get some air, i looked into his eyes. They were filled with excitement and wonder. I'm sure mine were the same.
"I love you." I whispered to him.
"I love you too."
