"What is that?" She asked incredulously after I brought her outside to look at it when it had firstarrived."Why, Bella, it's your new car of course. Don't you like it?" I asked, a little of the excitement hadfaded from my voice, having done it intentionally knowing she wouldn't make too much of a bigdeal about it if she knew she would hurt my feelings."Of course Edward, but it's too much." She replied as she put her hand to my face."Don't worry, it's only your before car anyway" I hadn't actually meant for that little bit of information to slip out yet, but I had been distracted by her lovely chocolate brown eyes."My what? Before what?" She asked stunned."Well, this one is actually a loaner. After...." I started to say it, but it was still so difficult to thinkabout the moment I dreaded, the moment that I knew would come all too soon, the day her heartstopped beating. The day I killed her. "After you become one of us." I whispered my voice so lowI'm sure she barely heard it. She knew that despite how much I loved her, this was not an easytopic for me to discuss.That effectively ended the conversation and she murmured her thanks, only a little grudgingly,with some of her sweet kisses.Yes, that day was coming quickly upon me, a hard day it would be. I began to feel myself wallow.I decided this would not be how I spent my day. I turned my thought to a day much closer athand. A happy day, a joyous day and one I couldn't wait for. The day I would finally make Bella mywife. I lingered over the words in my head; Bella, my wife. She would be my wife and I would beher husband. I remembered, with a smile, the day we had gone to tell Charlie that we wereengaged.She fidgeted the whole time. She finally agreed to wear my mother's ring. It meant more to methan she could even imagine and I held her hand tightly in mine so she would stop trying to hideher hand in her pockets. I had head Charlie's cruiser well before she did and she tensed when thesound reached her and continued to fidget more."Stop fidgeting, Bella. Please try to remember that you're not confessing to a murder here""Easy for you to say." She grumped.Charlie was walking up the sidewalk and I could tell she was listening closely, tensing with eachstep he took."Calm down, Bella." I whispered as I heart her heart rapidly accelerating. We heard the door slamand Bella jumped."Hey Charlie," I called, feeling fairly confident."No!" Bella hissed under her breathe."What?" I whispered back."Wait till he hangs up his gun!" I chuckled and ran my fingers through my hair. She was silly. AsCharlie came around the corned in his uniform he made a face, clearly still upset it was I who wassitting with Bella, he would have preferred Jacob to be the one she loved, however he did try tobe civil.
