Morning moments of a new kind of day. A new kind of way. He woke to a sleeping love, peaceful, no soaked sheets, no nightmares, just her, the lovely girl. A luminous intensity, pale met rosy-cream pictures, lying in his bed, remembering her, and the way they moved together just last night. He laid watching her, lost in lightening moments. He thought to take a pen and write it down, to tell someone. His need to express overwhelmed him.
Unable to wait any longer, he leaned forward and gently pushed his nose against hers. Small touches in place of words, small actions forever meaning more. She shifted and stirred, lightly groaning for being woken. Eyes fluttered, no letting up, she knew he was there, a smile as big as his heart, reflecting back. And it was okay. It was more than.
“Morning, pretty girl.”
The walk back to the car felt like an age, feet unwilling to meet their minds pace. They shared a look that said, I know. Believe me, I know.
Less people, still from the sound, and freezing cold fingers, she couldn’t feel anything but him, the urgency of him, the bubbling happiness he made her feel.
They drove a distance, a buzzed silence filling the car. The beautiful lights from a place she’d never forget began to disappear.
Home was a way away and he felt like he could no longer wait, he would no longer wait.
Edward pulled the car into a lane, away from the throngs of people coming and going from the attraction, away from the lights leaving only them. A large tree hung down above where he parked.
“What are you doing?”

I don’t have to go to work. When I wake up, I have no plans to be anywhere, to do anything. It’s terrifying.
“I wanna tell you not to leave.”
“Believe me, I don’t want to go, but I’ll be back in the morning.”
He does have to go to work. He has to walk around an empty building, keeping it safe. I want him to stay. I need him to stay. Stay and keep me safe.
“I should go home.” I don’t really want to, but it’s what I think I should say, it’s probably what I should want.
“No, Bella. Stay. Stay here, and order in, watch a movie, do whatever, mess with my things, you know you want to.” His smile is cheeky, happy. He’s so easy. So uncomplicated.

The cold was thrilling. Old boots traversing new ground. Sweater weather and smiles, she skipped down the stairs and ran into him.
“I don’t want you to get cold, take this…” Edward handed her a navy blue jacket, big enough for her to snuggle into.
“So, where are we going?”
“No, no. It’s a surprise!” She felt jumpy, bouncing inside to a song nobody else could hear but her.
“Can I have a clue?”
Don’t be a coward. Pick it up, choose life.
She didn’t know where to begin, how to begin, only that she must.
Don’t be a coward.
She was the imperfect mix of a child left alone, and an adult, unaware of what’s next.
Edward had agreed to continue on as he once had, new prospects at the University. Something he had been hoping for despite his young age. Protests and comfort, he didn’t want to leave Bella alone.
There was a tear in the vortex; the stories and confessions of yesterday, held high like stars in a kind of new sky. He was relieved. But Bella had more questions.
Why couldn’t Edward go with his family?
Her understanding was limited due to the absence of her own.
Bella felt now more than ever that she owed something to Edward. She felt ashamed of her life, and the paths she had taken, she thought of how they had met, unsure, but wanting to be determined. She knew she did want to share more with him.
The coward inside cowered. A win for the future.
