The Last Sunset
By Francesca Mundy
Chapter 44. Beautiful
After talking to quite a few people, a couple more dances with Edward, and present opening; courteously of Alice, we could finally leave for our honeymoon. Emmett carried all of our bags to the Volvo, as we started to say goodbye to my new family.
"Don't worry about anything, I packed everything you'll need" what was I supposed to say to that. Gee, thanks for looking into mine and Edward's alone time, to see what I needed to pack? "Thanks Alice" I said hugging her, with Edward chuckling to himself. When Alice let me go, I smacked Edward on the shoulder. "Not a word" I whispered only loud enough for him to hear.
After twenty minutes and a few dry-sobs later, we were ready to go. "Emmett, if you really want to take Eddie hunting, go with someone, preferably Alice." Alice looked at me and I shrugged. "You'll know if he's planning anything" Alice laughed lightly and gave me another quick hug.
"See you guys in a few weeks then!" I said as we got into the Volvo and speed down the drive towards the air port.
I was so happy in that one moment, sitting in the car, hand in hand, with my husband. After everything I had gone through, all the horrible things I had seen and done, I never thought I would get any happiness, and here I am with a gorgeous man heading off to an unknown honeymoon destination.
We sat in silence for a while before I heard Edward sigh. "What is it, Edward?" he looked at me and smiled. "I never thought I would be happy either, but to have found you, one of the most self-less people I have ever met, the only girl I could ever love" he stroked the back of my hand with his thumb as we speed down the highway. I leant over and kissed Edward lightly on the lips, trying not to distract him from the road, too much.
After another few minutes, my curiosity got the better of me. "So, where are we going?" Edward chuckled "It's a surprise, love. You'll just have to wait and see." I huffed and looked out the window.
It had been precisely thirteen hours, twenty-seven minutes and fifty-eight seconds since we left the house. We had gotten to Seattle airport and boarded three planes since then. Now we were walking down a dock in Rio de Janeiro; towards a fairly large speed boat.
"Not a cruise then?" I asked sarcastically.
"No, not a cruise" he repeated "but don't worry, it won't take long from here" he whispered in my ear.
Edward took our bags and placed them in the boat, then helped me in; even though he knew I didn't need it. Always the gentlemen. He laughed again, hearing my thoughts.
"You know I think I've figured out how to lift my shield" I said as Edward powered up the motor. "So, what's your theory?" he asked. "I think I can lift it with certain people when I have certain feelings towards them"
"Certain feelings?" he cocked an eyebrow at me. "I think it may be different for each person, but towards you..." I trailed off, not wanted to finish my sentence. "Go on" Edward encouraged me. "Towards you, all I have to feel is, lust." Edward smirked at me and pulled me towards him for a hug. "I love you, so much Zahra Cullen" I grinned and kissed his cheek.
'As I love you, Edward Cullen' I thought towards him, lifting my shield. "Hum, not so hard now" we both laughed as we travelled farther out to the ocean.
"Just a few miles from here" Edward shouted over the roar of the engine. I was overly curious about where we were going now, but after all the hours of travelling I just couldn't wait to get there.
Less than half an hour later, we were at a dock, taking our bags out of the boat and leaving them. I was going to ask why when Edward came up behind me and lifted me up into his arms.
"I'm going to do this properly" he explained, kissing me lightly and walking towards the beautiful island.
There were lots of tropic trees and plants making a sort of path towards a one floor, but huge, house. It was tucked into the lush vegetation perfectly, coming up the door; Edward opened it with one hand, still holding me. He then walked over the threshold, grinning. "Part of the job description" he said, kissing me passionately.
We went into one of the bedroom and lay on the bed, although we weren't physically tired, we just wanted to rest for a while and let everything sink in.
We'd gone through so much together, and to finally end up here, it felt like a miracle.
We let the day roll to a close, just looking around the house and the small island. When we got back to the bedroom, Edward pulled me down onto our bed, lying over me. "Your beauty always takes my breath away." I smiled widely. "Not that you need it" I laughed.
"I love you, Edward Cullen" I sighed happily. He kissed the tip of my nose and gave me his dazzling crocked smile "and I love you Zahra Cullen."
A small giggle left my lips as his held rolled over so that we lay sideways facing each other. I hope Alice was right. Edward sat up so abruptly that it even caught me off guard.
"Right about what?" I pulled myself onto Edwards lap and leant into his chest, inhaling his scent. "You'll see some time tonight, I hope." He kissed my neck up to my jaw line.
"If this is a traditional honeymoon, I hope so to." He said as he took the sheets that, honestly, we didn't need and pulled them over our heads.
The next morning we lay next to each other, motionlessly. "Okay, when Alice told me, I really hope she didn't see that." I turned to face Edward who had a sort of, pained but amused expression on his face.
"Me too, love." I laughed and snuggled into his chest as the sun began to rise, falling through the windows and landing on me and Edward.
"Beautiful" he whispered as he kissed me once more.
Okay guys, that's finally it! The Last Sunset is now, complete!
