Edward steps out from the alley. Bella recovers from her fall, runs and crashes into him. Edward clasps Bella’s face between his hands and looks down at her tenderly.
EDWARD - Isabella…
Edward lowers his face near her lips and inhales her breath.
EDWARD - Death, that hath suck’d the honey of thy breath,Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty.
Edward inhales her scent.
EDWARD - You smell just exactly the same as always. So maybe this is hell. I don’t care. I’ll take it.
BELLA - Edward, I’m alive! I’m right here beside you!
Bella takes Edward’s hand and puts it over her heart.
BELLA - Touch me, Edward! Feel my heart beating!
Edward lifts Bella until he could lay his ear against her chest, listening to her beating heart.
EDWARD - Beautiful Bella. Is this some strange form of deranged death?
Bella grabs his face to force him to look at her.
BELLA - I’m alive! Edward, please believe me!
EDWARD - Amazing…
