My eyes unfocused, I was reminiscing that night that I proposed to Bella. I remember how in 사랑 we were, 또는 at least how in 사랑 I thought we were. Was I ready for this to happen? I didn't know.
"Edward? Be honest, if 당신 don't want to marry me, then tell me, but I would really appreciate it if 당신 said something."
I focused back on her, realizing my mouth was open. I was determined to make this sound right.
"I'm not saying no, but are 당신 sure 당신 want to?"
I watched her expression as she thought. I needed to understand her.
"I definitely want to. I mean, I 사랑 you, I've had experience dating, and I know when something is wrong, but I can tell 당신 do 사랑 me. So, of course I want to marry you. But, do 당신 want to marry me?"
"Let me think about this for a little bit."
I sat on the sofa, looking down at the floor. I wanted to marry her, but we hardly knew anything about each other. If I were to agree to this, than we would need to know 더 많이 about each other. I wanted to know everything about her, just to know her. What she liked, what she hated. Everything. So if I said yes, then the wedding bells would be back on. I knew how she felt and I knew how I felt, so the answer was obvious.
"I thought the guy was supposed to propose, not the other way around,"I said breaking the silence.
She looked at the ground.
"I know I 사랑 you, but isn't this going too fast for you?"
"No, this is at the perfect pace,"she replied without looking up.
I pulled her chin up and I could see how bad she was feeling, she thought I was going to say no. I grabbed her hand and towed her away so she was standing just inches from me. I made sure she was watching me, keeping her hand.
"Elizabeth Martin,"I said as I slid down onto one knee. She gasped.
"I 사랑 당신 and 당신 사랑 me. I want 당신 forever and ever, and I promise to 사랑 당신 every second, of every 일 of forever. And I need 당신 to answer this question. Will 당신 marry me?"
She smiled from ear to ear. I reached into my pocket and pulled out the velvet box.
"Of course, Edward Cullen, yes I'll marry you."
I opened the box and pulled out the ring. Surprisingly, when I slid it on, it fit perfectly.
"This ring was the one my father gave to my mother. And I want 당신 to have it."
Then I got up and pulled her closer. Then I pressed my cold, hard lips to her nice, warm, soft lips. I felt good, even better than when Bella had said yes. I remembered back to when I had watched Liz sleep that one night. About how I wanted her to become a vampire. I realize now how selfish that was. I would let her choose what she wanted to be. I wouldn't stand in her way, no matter how hard. I broke away from the kiss. The look on her face reminded me so much of Bella.
"It's nothing against you, but I don't want to hurt you, which could very easily happen,"I thought about how I called Bella love, I didn't want to repeat that so I decided on,"honey."
She wouldn't notice the pause.
"I know, 당신 have super strength and all, but I did enjoy the kiss."
"As did I. But tomorrow, I want to ask 당신 every 질문 I can think of, no matter how stupid, I want 당신 to answer as best 당신 can and honest."
"Okay, but why tomorrow?"
I looked over to the window. She must not have noticed time slipping away.
"I'll let 당신 sleep now. For the wedding, I want 당신 to decide."
"Okay,"she said as she plopped on the bed.
I kissed her again, the raging 불, 화재 in my throat, unsatisfied. I left the room. I would be back, but I wanted to get some fresh air. Maybe snack on a 다람쥐 또는 something.
