Chapter preview: “Sure, sounds good,” I replied without hesitation, drinking the last of my glass of wine, before turning back to the handsome stranger with a smile on my face. “I’m Bella by the way… Isabella Hale is my full name but everyone calls me Bella.” I introduced myself formally, wanting him to at least know my name.
A unknown tender expression formed over his face as I spoke, his green eyes becoming soft. He got up from his seat and stepped so he was directly in front of me. “That’s a beautiful name… Bella.” He whispered, reaching his hand to brush some hair out of my face, letting his hand linger on my skin, causing a slight blush to form across my face, despite my intoxicated state.
He cleared his throat; before leaning forward even more so his lips were inches away from brushing against my ear. “Seeing as you’ve introduced yourself I had better do the same… I’m Edward, Edward Cullen.”
