Getting Acquainted with Edward Cullen

My life with Edward Cullen started on the wrong foot. At least, on my end. Given Edward’s superhuman speed, I was unable to hide my obsessive Twilight and Edward Cullen-related stuff around the house. Lo and behold, just a few minutes after giving me his pasalubong, Edward saw signs of my Obsessive Cullen Disorder (OCD). Just a few feet from him was obsession evidence #1—my Twilight Saga book collection. He immediately jumped onto the bookshelf to check it out.

“I see that you read about my past…” Edward politely said. “Please know that I am ready to create a future with you,” he continued.

I was speechless. It’s a good thing my hubby was in this with me or I’d feel like I were being unfaithful. Suddenly, Edward looked up and saw obsession evidence #2–my Twilight clock.

“Wow, this is a phenomenal clock,” Edward said. “You should know, though, that from this day on, I will love you forever…every day of forever…”

Oh my gosh, I just died and went to twiven.

Then reality crept in… I realized that I’d better hide all my other OCD stuff like my Team Edward hoodie, my Twilight DVD, and my Twilight movie companion book. I have to make sure he doesn’t see my photo collection in my laptop. OMG. Edward can read my mind! He must think I’m obsessive! So much for keeping cool, calm and collected!

I tried to quickly hide all other OCD obsession evidence from Edward but he was too fast for me. Just a few milliseconds after seeing the clock, he saw obsession evidence #3—my customized Twilight Starbucks tumbler. I felt myself turn beet-red. I can’t believe Edward now knows that I sip my hot drinks while looking at his hotterness!

“You better hold on tight, spidermonkey.” Edward joked as he climbed onto my tumbler.

Ok, Edward touched the tumbler. I am NOT washing that tumbler ever again! Wait a minute, Edward probably just heard that thought. I’d better learn how to guard my thoughts around him.

“Hey, Edward! Check this out!” My hubby called from the bedroom.

Edward flew his way, with me running right behind him. I stopped in the doorway and gasped. Oh no, obsession evidence #4—my treasured Twilight premiere ticket! There is no way I can save my dignity now! It is definite: Edward now knows of my incurable Obsessive Cullen Disorder (OCD)!

“Look, I think the ticket looks better with the original Edward.” Edward mused.

All I could say in my tomato-faced glory was “Yeah, you do. You’re a real doll.”

Edward Cullen Arrives: A Dazzling Evening!

It’s a nice lazy Monday evening and I was relaxing with my hubby when there was a gentle but insistent knock on our bedroom door. I opened the door (in my midnight blue negligee, no less) and look who I found…

I honestly don’t know how Edward got into our house and climbed the stairs with his car (What happened to the Volvo? Oh well, the Volks is a German car too…) but you know Edward can do anything so…

“Edward!” I gasped. “What are you doing here?”

“Hi! I read your mind and I saw what you wanted to do to me and with me and it piqued my interest.” Edward replied.

At this point, I was already blushing profusely and thinking of how I’m going to explain Edward’s presence to my hubby. It turns out that my hubby was the reason why Edward came (more of that later). I invited him in and he sat on our bed.

After chatting with Edward (looking incredibly hot beside his amazing shiny black suitcase), I found out that my hubby actually fought with the saleslady from FB just to let him allow Edward to come to my house (permanently, of course). I won’t tell you why lest I get contacted by FB. If you are smart, you must have guessed by now that Edward and my hubby planned this surprise.

So, anyway…after listening to Edward talk about his long travel from Forks to Manila, I asked if he was hungry. I was afraid he might find it difficult to look for animal blood around. I had to protect my sleeping children. As debonair as he is, he’s still a vampire. He politely responded that his golden eyes shows how full he is. I told him that I’m glad that he came and that I plan to take him to a lot of places (and have him do a lot of things…tsk! tsk!). I think he’s excited to be in Manila even if the weather is not to his liking. Regardless, the weather is weird these days since it’s been a rainy summer so I think he’ll be ok.

Ever the gentleman, Edward came with a pasalubong. He said that he googled the Philippines and found that Filipinos are very hospitable. He also found that pasalubong is quite traditional so he came with a present.

Edward's pasalubong--a crystal (?!) charm!

When I saw his gift, I gasped! It’s just too much…it’s beauty is too much to bear…If you don’t know what it is, it’s a crystal heart charm (but you know it’s not really a crystal, right?). My face turned red and I think Edward read the ambivalence in my mind.

“I inherited quite a few baubles like this. I’ve given some to Esme and Alice and Bella. So, clearly this is not a big deal in any way…” Edward said.

“It’s beautiful.” I replied.

“My heart is just as silent,” he mused. “And it, too, is yours…”

I couldn’t answer. My heart was fluttering and I’m sure he could hear it. Needless to say, tonight is a dazzling evening. Thanks to my hubby for letting Edward Cullen come to our house. He is such an understanding and romantic enabler.

Welcome Edward…welcome to my home and my life. I hope you enjoy your time with me. We’re just getting started.
