Seismic Shift Chapter 29 Teaser

The sight I was met with stole my breath away. Edward was facing away from me, the last of the day's sun shining down on him like it was showcasing a Norse god. His bronze hair shone like a newly minted penny in the rays, and his skin sparkled, throwing fractals against the walls behind him. His suit was charcoal grey, his hands in his pockets, and he turned as I walked fully into the room.

His eyes said everything in that moment, as he looked me up and down before his gaze lingered on my face. He broke out into a heart-stopping smile as he came toward me. "You are exquisite, my Bella."

His shirt was open at the collar where a tie would have been, and I placed one hand there as he approached to brace myself as I raised up on my toes to kiss him. "You don't look so bad yourself."

The restaurant was nice, but I wouldn't be able to remember a single detail about it later, when the story was re-told countless times for countless friends and family. I would instead memorize the romantic words Edward said to me as we sat as close as we could without being inappropriate in public. I would remember the scent of his cologne, the rapid beating of my heart in my throat, and the tingling feeling spreading through my limbs as what he said sank in.
