Bella and Edward: What

has yet to come


Chapter 1:
The planning
Bella
Edward
It was another rainy, dreary day in Forks.
But I was happy, because I was with my
Edward. I was lying on his stomach on “my”
bed in his room. He was sitting on his black
leather couch, with a notebook clutched in
his hand nothing something I could not read
from the distance. Feeling Edward’s gaze
on me, I turned around. “So…??” I looked at
him and gave him a small smile. “Oh
nothing.” Replied Edward. “Well, actually, I
was just wondering if you were excited
about the wedding.” I groaned, but managed
to keep a small smile. “I guess.” I had finally
come to my senses about getting married
several weeks ago while in our meadow. I
realized I had been selfish and if this was
what Edward wanted, it was what I wanted
also. He had sacrificed so much for me, and
I hadn’t done much for him.
I remember the day clearly, as if it was just yesterday. It was a memorable day, in bad way. Edward
was so understanding, and let me build up the courage to talk to Charlie. I grimaced. There were a lot
of tears, coming from me of course, lots of yelling and confusion that day. Charlie couldn’t understand
why we can’t wait. I had to admit, he had some good reasoning. But Edward was the one I wanted,
forever. Literally.
I sighed, pushing the thought away. I had a Fall wedding coming up and I wasn’t going to waste
anytime planning. I was actually quite excited for once. I would never admit it, but Alice was right.
Why would I want a cheap, easily forgettable wedding in Las Vegas, when I could have a memorable
one with the people I loved. I still wasn’t planning to make a big deal about it, all of the Cullens knew
how uncomfortable it made me to waste their money. Still, Edward was excited so I knew that I would
be happy with the outcome. Plus, this was the day that I would be tied to Edward forever, and that
meant more then anything to me.
I pulled myself off the very comfortable couch and walked over to Edward. “I’ll be right back.” I
paused, and leaned down, lightly kissing his forehead. He grinned, using my favorite crooked smile. I
turned around and walked out, going down the hall to Alice’s and Jasper’s adjoined room. I reached
out to tap on the door, but the door flew open before I had a chance to. Of course, Alice would have
seen me coming. I chuckled softly before following Alice into the room. “Exciting isn’t it?” Alice asked
while practically bouncing everywhere. “Yeah.” I smiled, my eyes following her every move. “So, what
part of the wedding did you need help with now Bella?” I sighed then opened my notebook to reveal
some of my plans. She read them over and cringed. “How boring could you get Bella??!?!” She
reached over and grabbed a white binder from off the desk. She opened it and pointed out several of
her ideas. “Alice!!!!” “Why would I have a white dove release???” “What’s the point?” Her lower lip
went out, and she looked very much like a sulky child. I groaned. “Fine..” I pushed my notebook
towards her. “At least use some of my ideas.” I gave her a small smile before sitting down on one of
her plushy white armchairs. “Now what should we do?” I asked, smiling. “Oh!” She grinned, grabbing
my hand and leading me into her enormous closet. “Here.” She shoved a plastic bag, which I knew
was containing my wedding dress, towards me. “Just try it on Bella.” “That way I should be able to
know if I should make any adjustments.” “Fine.” I grumbled, irritably. Even though I was irritated, I was
curious. This would be the first time I had tried it on and I wondered what it looked like.
Alice went to another corner of her large closet while I put on the slip, then slipped my dress on. I couldn’t zip it up, so I
called for Alice. She was there in an instant, smoothly zipping up my dress. “Oh Bella!” She squealed. “Its prettier then
I thought!” “You look stunning!” She skipped over to the other end, grabbing something and running back over. She
thrust a box towards me. Inside there were these beautiful white satin heels, with gold studs along the sides. “Oh Alice,
this must have cost a fortune.” I whispered. “Try them on.” She said brightly, looking at my expression. I reached down,
trying to keep my balance and slipped both on. Alice kneeled down, tying the white satin ribbon around my ankle. She
stood up admiring her choice. She led me out of the closet, shutting the door to reveal the mirror on the front. An awed
gasp escaped my lips. I had no makeup on, nothing to mask my pale skin. My hair was hanging there, limp as usual,
yet there was a completely transformed Bella in the mirror. I didn’t recognize myself. The beautiful gown had
transformed me. My pale dull skin had turned to a flushed, snowy white from shock. Alice smiled at my shocked look,
and pulled me back into the closet. She handed me back my clothes from the floor and walked out of the closet. I
slipped of the dress, smoothing it out and slipping it back inside the bag, and hanging it up. I put on my clothes and
walked out of the closet. “Oh Bella…” Alice called in a singsong voice. “Come into the bathroom.” I groaned, knowing
that the “dress-up game” was just the first step in playing “Barbie” with Alice. I slowly walked into the bathroom,
knowing this would be the last time I stood up for the next 2 hours. Knowing Alice, she’d probably try every hair style
possible for my hair length. Alice was rocking on the balls of her feet as I slowly shuffled in. Impatiently she told me to
sit on the chair, the salon chair as I called it, because she could adjust the levels of the chair, and also spin it. I sat
down quickly, trying to get it over as quickly as possible. Immediately she whirled the chair around, so that my head
was positioned over the sink. She started to wet my hair, squeezing a dollop of very yummy smelling shampoo in here

milky palm. I closed my eyes and groaned.
