Thanks to SorceressCirce for beta’ing.
As ever, I do not own Twilight – it owns me.
Arms swinging high, we’re both swept away by the music, singing along at the top of our lungs.
Chancing a glance at her, I find her grinning widely at me, eyes bright – filled with something that makes my breath catch in my throat. My heart beats even more frantically than before.
This concert is my gift for Alice’s birthday.
Tonight, I intend to let her know I’m in love with her.
As soon as it’s over, she clings to me. “Oh, Bells, thank you!”
“I love you, Alice,” I whisper.
I kiss her.
Heaven, as she returns it.
