I sat down, next to the window, while Edward pushed our carryons into the compartment above. I pulled the blind down, noticing the clouds starting to dissapate. I watched as my immortal lover sat in the seat beside me. He reached for my hand, giving me a kiss on the cheek. I turned my face so that our lips were touching. He pulled back, for some reason, I felt different, odd. Like part of me was gone, that was until Edward froze. I looked at him curious, until I was hit with a vision.
We were on the plane, but there were three men, all holding guns and one was in the cockpit. I watched as they shot an innocent boy, who fell over, instantly dead. I felt the tingly sensation once more in my eyes, and then anger replaced it. What right did these men have to take lives. I stood up and was about to jump and hurt one of the men when Edward grabbed my arm, instantly calming me. I looked at him pleading with him, but he just pulled me back into my seat.
Then we were back, back to the real world.
"What was that Edward? I've never felt a vision that powerful."
"That's because it's important. I'm going to find the sky martial and describe each man before the plane takes off, I'll be right back."
Edward stood and went to the back of the plane, realizing that the plane was stationed, helped calm the butterflies I felt in my stomach. I couldn't help but feel terrified for those on this plane, what could I do to help? I didn't know the answer to that. I waited for Edward to return. I looked back and the sky martial was speaking into a walkie-talkie. Not long after a bunch of men wearing black came in and arrested five different men and took them off the plane. I heard whispers all around me, wondering what was going on.
"Attention passengers, we are sorry for the interuption, the flight will begin shortly, please fasten your seatbelts. The flight attendants will explain safety procedures and we hope you enjoy your flight."
I listened as the whispers continued, though I didn't pay attention to the flight attendants, I'd watched enough movies to figure out what there was to save us.
Edward sat beside me and held my hand.
"Were those all of them?"
"As far as I could tell, that was all of the terrorists."
"That's good, now no one's in danger. Thank you for that."
"No problem, I'm just glad to get away from here."
"By here, do you mean Bella and Jacob?"
"Yes, I don't know what would've happened if Bella had chosen me, I would have been happy, but I would never have known you, never would have met someone so unique."
"Is it true?"
"What she said back there, about me being a replacement for her and looking like her?"
"Yes, it was."
I looked away, trying to keep my feelings from showing.
"What I mean,"he said pulling my face back to him,"is that at first I wanted you to replace her. You looking like her, was just what drew me to you. But after I got to know you, I found out how much it was you who I really was meant to be with, you who got me through the loss of my first love, you who I love and married and turned, you who I want to be with for all of eternity. I love you Liz, I will always love you."
"I love you too Edward, nothing could change that. Not even the mystery of where we're going."
He chuckled softly and then kissed my cheek. I smiled, she had chosen wrong, that was definite, but a great thing had come from her decission, our love. I looked into his eyes. I remembered to move every so often, if I hadn't people could've been suspicious.
"Tell me,"I whispered into his ear.
"Tell you what?"
"What you went through with her, tell me the good and the bad, I want to know everything."
"Really? Why would you want to know that?"
"Just tell me."
"Well, it started out with Carlisle, then he changed me, then Esme, then Rosalie, hoping that she could be to me, what Esme was to him, then Emmett, for Rose, then we came upon Alice and Jasper, who wanted to join our coven. We've been many places, the last was Forks, where we're still living. Soon we will move once more."
"Where did Bella come in?"
"Well two years after we moved to Forks, she came, she was the new girl, so everyone was thinking about her. At first I hated myself, because she smelled too good, and I had thoughts that first day about how much I wanted to drink her blood. But she fascinated me, because I couldn't hear her thoughts, she was the only one. It bugged me, but it was something I couldn't get past. I ran away to Alaska, after this first day, but eventually I realized running away wouldn't solve anything, so I hunted many animals, before returning. We had our first conversation and I realized how much I was starting to like her. After she found out my secret, I realized I was falling in love with her. We did many things together. Her first winter in Forks I saved her life from a van sliding on the ice, I saved her from four men in Port Angeles, and I saved her from turning when a vampire tracker was after her. I saved her many times and when it was her 18th birthday, I realized it would be better if I left for her life, so my family and I left, which was one of the biggest mistakes I had ever made. I ran away, going different cities, eating different animals, like rats. I recieved a call from Rosalie, months after I had gone, to hear that Bella had thrown herself off a cliff and drowned. It tortured me to hear this, so I called her house, just to be sure. That wolf answered, telling me that Charlie, Bella's father, was at the funeral, which proved what Rose had said. So I threw out my phone and got on the first flight to Italy, to find the Volturi, so I could die. I didn't want to live without her. Soon I had made it and had given them my request. I waited for their decission. If they refused, I would do something to make them, but if they agreed, I would be pleased. They had denied, so I decided to walk out into the sun, for all to see. Bella came to me, and she wasn't dead, I thought I was at first, but then, we found out I wasn't. I went home with her, after promising that we would turn her, of course, something I didn't want. Victoria, James' mate was hunting Bella, for vengence against me, but in the end, we convinced the wolves to help us fight the army she had created. I defeated Victoria, and Jacob had gotten hurt in the fight. The worst part is that she had agreed to marry me. She would have gone through with it, but the day of, she decided to go back to Jake, they married after I left, after she broke my heart. That's why I was in New York, that's why I found you. To mend my broken heart. To revive me."
I looked into his eyes, not wanting to look away. I felt the tingly sensation returned and kissed him, feeling the same as I did earlier today. We didn't break for a long while, but when we did, it was because of the stares, not because we wanted to. Before long we were landing, in South America. We unboarded the plane and grabbed our luggage. Then we got in a cab, still Edward kept the location a secret. I tuned out the mind of the Cabi, so I could keep it out of my thoughts, which moved around my head, never settling. The taxi stopped and Edward paid. He helped me out and picked up our baggage, we walked along the dock, until we stopped at a small boat. We boarded and he started the engine.
"I didn't know you were a sailor."
"A long time ago, it was one of my covers."
We roamed the sea for a long while, heading in one direction. Finally I spotted a speck of white ahead. As we grew closer, I noticed green foliage and white sand, there was a small house on the island, and it was a beautiful sight. We were closing distance and the closer we got the bigger it grew and the prettier it came. The sun was starting to set, and I started to feel nervous. I had no idea what it would be like. I was a virgin. Yeah I'd dated before, but I'd never actually done it, I was waiting for the right person, and this was him, yet nervousness was mostly what I felt. I did feel excitement, but I also felt happiness. That it would be him, that he would be the one. I was also curious, had he ever done it with Bella? He said she was his first love, does that mean she was his first or that she was just his first girlfriend? All of the questions presented themselves, and when Edward stopped the boat, he also noticed my expression.
"What's the matter?"
"You can tell me, we are husband and wife after all."
"Um...well, I... I'm a... I'm a virgin, I don't know what to do."
He smiled, and let out a soft laugh.
"That's a relief."
"I'm a virgin also."
"Really? So you and Bella never...."
"No, that's something I never wanted to do with a human, I was afraid I'd hurt her, even though it was one of our agreements."
"Oh, well that's good, so we don't know what to do. I mean I know how, just not what exactly we should be doing, I've seen some tv or movies with it so I have an idea, but I don't...."
"Shhhh, we'll find out together."
He led me out of the boat carrying both suitcases and then also lifting me into his arms.
"I want to do this the right way."
I smiled at him. He opened the front door and then carried me inside, shutting the door behind us.
"What is this place?"
"An island, Carlisle bought it for Esme and named it after her. I thought you would like it her and they allowed me to borrow it. The water is warm and I will meet you outside, I'll allow you to got ready."
He walked outside, and closed the glass double doors that led outside. I went into the bathroom to take a look at myself. I looked perfect, it was weird. Was any other part of me soft? I didn't think so, but I was different. I opened the suitcase Alice had packed for me, it was full of lingerie. Thank you Alice, there were a few swim suits, all bikinis and all very uncovering. But it was better than nothing. I washed my arms and legs, so I wasn't as dirty. I then changed out of my clothes and wrapped a towel around myself. I didn't know what else to wear. I walked through the doors and headed to the beach. As I followed the trail I noticed his shoes and socks, then his shirt, then his pants and undies. I decided to drop my towel then, I noticed him standing solid in the water, the waves crashing around him, as if he were a rock. I stepped into the water and stood next to him. Slowly walking around him until I was facing him. His muscles were outlined by the moon above and I reached up and put my arms around his neck. Our lips met and it was like fire. I wrapped my legs around his waist, remembering certain shows. We went all night.
