her wish of Harry having a sleepover at your house pretty soon after the two of
you had spent the night with him. There was no reason for you and Harry not to
start dating exclusively; you both liked each other and Harry was now on break
from touring. He made every effort to come see you any time he had a free day
or evening and invited both you and Isabella over as often as he could. You
weren’t lacking for time together, and you were okay with that. Your biggest

needed to build a blanket fort in her bedroom and have a sleepover that way,
even though you and Harry had a slightly different idea about how the night was
going to go. You felt bad that Harry was getting dragged into this, but he

You sat back

plans for tomorrow until we were on the way there.”
If I would have met you back then, I would have courted you. Would’ve taken chaperoned strolls and had iced tea on the porch. I may have stolen a kiss or two, but only after asking your father’s permission, I would’ve got down on one knee and I would’ve presented you with a ring. This was my mother’s. Isabella Swan, I promise to love you every moment of forever. Would you do me the extraordinary honor of marrying me?
