“Edward,” Bella said
I froze, staring at her unopened eyes.
Had she woken, caught me here? She looked asleep, yet her voice had been so clear…
She sighed a quiet sigh, and then moved restlessly, rolling too her side - still fast asleep and dreaming.
“Edward,” she mumbled softly.
She was dreaming of me.
Could a dead, frozen heart beat again? It felt like mine was about to.
“Stay,” she sighed, “Don’t go. Please … don’t go.”
She was dreaming of me and it wasn’t even a nightmare. She wanted me to stay with her there in the dream.
I struggled to find words to name the feelings that flooded through me, but I had no words strong enough to hold them. For a moment, I drowned in them. When I surfaced, I was not the same man I had been.
…. blah, blah, blah …
…-I would always love this fragile human girl, for the rest of my limitless existence.
I gazed at her unconcious face, feeling this love for her settle into every portion of my stone body.
…blah, blah, blah…
…-I loved her, and so I would be strong enough to leave her.
See, that’s nice. I’m going to ignore the fact that he went there to eat her pale ass but at least he said why he was going to try and leave her. Albeit that he fell in love with her in an instant, but that’s just Stephenie trying to make everything perfect and lovey-dovey.
I always have this feeling that Twilight wouldn’t have the piss taken out of it if Stephenie had written Bella’s P.O.V (the actual book) more like Edward’s. Edward seems to have a real look on things … and his/The Cullen’s back-story’s are much more interesting.

I just want to express how much I love this quote. Bella’s about to get squished by a fucking Chevy or some shit and yet Edward’s still so … formal. For some reason I have this image of Rob Pattinson in my head, effing and blinding.
I was the last person who would ever stand as a protector for Isabella Swan. She would never need protection from anything more than she needed it from me. - Midnight Sun
