Chapter 2

First Snow

"Please put on a coat."

"I'm not cold."

"It's winter."

"Winter doesn't start until the twenty second of next month."

"Or so you say."

"Bella..."

"Edward..." She imitated, quite proud of herself for matching his tone of annoyance.

"Bella, please," Edward pleaded as he propped himself up on his elbow, making it easier to stare at her, "You'll catch your death out in the winter with only a t-shirt on."

"Trust me, Edward. I'm fine. If you've forgotten, my favorite teddy bear is about minus twenty or thirty degrees at all times."

"I don't run that low of a temperature; and I thought I was your boyfriend. When did I get demoted to a teddy bear?" He wondered, his face taking on a pouting look.

"You're both."

"Well, as your boyfriend, I'm asking you- no, begging- you to put on a coat. I don't want you to freeze to death."

"Oh, Edward, I'll never let go..." Bella quoted, trying hard not to laugh.

"I don't think this is the time for joking. Look, it's probably going to snow soon!" Edward exclaimed as he pointed up at the cloudy sky.

"Fine, then. I'll make you a deal."

"What are the terms?"

"I'll put on a coat when it begins to snow."

"I'm not liking the sound of that."

"Well, that's it. Either you take it, or leave it."

A glacial wind whipped through Edward's hair, causing him to smirk. Just before Bella could inquire about why he was smiling, something wet and cold fell on the tip of her nose. Shifting her eyes towards the heavens, she groaned upon seeing the tiny white flakes gliding down towards the earth.

"Awww, damn it!" She hissed, shooting a death glare towards the snow that was beginning to fall faster.

"Here." Edward said as he handed her a coat, that she hadn't even noticed he had before.

"Thanks." Bella replied as she let him help her up from her place on the cold grass.

Edward wrapped the coat around her shoulders, before adding his arm as well.

"Isn't this ironic?" Edward said, staring happily at the snow.

"What's ironic?" Bella asked, wrinkling her nose as her hair became matted with white.

"That we're here, in our meadow, witnessing the first snow fall of the year together."

"So?"

"This meadow held a lot of firsts for us." Edward grinned, looking down at his angel. "Like, our first kiss for example."

"The first time we exclaimed out love for each other." Bella added mirthfully.

"The first time you saw me in the sun."

"Our first date."

"First date? I considered that when you saved me in Port Angeles." Bella admitted shyly.

"You think that escaping from the scene of a possible… Well, you know…" Edward stammered slightly, "Was romantic?"

"Sort of. It was the night that I found out your secret."

"But here, in the meadow was when I found out yours."

"My secret?"

"That you were head over heels in love with a monster."

"You're not a monster."

"Or so you say."

"Edward," Bella sighed, claiming his free hand in hers, "No more talk of monsters or tragedy. Let's just enjoy the first snow fall of the year."

Lifting their locked hands, Edward turned them slightly giving his lips access to Bella's.

"To the first snow." He recited before letting his icy lips touch her skin, causing her to shiver slightly.

"To the first snow," Bella repeated, getting up on her toes, giving Edward the signal to lean down for their first kiss of the winter.
