My mind churns with scenarios, but I feel the need to finish our conversation and pull Edward into a nearby alley for some privacy.
I stop him by smashing my lips to his. Edward is stunned at first, but quickly wraps me in his arms and returns my kiss with equal enthusiasm.
I break away first, panting while my eyes find his hopeful ones. “Let me think. And talk for a minute. Edward, are you sure? What if—”
“Bella, I’m sure you’re playing out numerous what ifs in your head, but this decision is easy. Look at our relationship. There is this natural ease between us. I’ve never had this before and I don’t want to lose it. I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready for more. With you. I want this. I want you.”
