"You can't really believe that I would give in so easily," [Edward] said with a sour edge to his mocking tone.
[Bella:] "A girl can dream."

"Not exactly," I said, frowning at the word choice. Monster, indeed. "Mostly I dream about being with you forever." (Epilogue.199-202)
"Did you ever think that maybe my number was up the first time, with the van, and that you've been interfering with fate?" I speculated, distracting myself. [...]
"That wasn't the first time," [Edward] said, and his voice was hard to hear. I stared at him in amazement, but he was looking down. "Your number was up the first time I met you." (8.213, 214)
[Edward to Bella:] "You were right – I'm definitely fighting fate trying to keep you alive." (9.177)
