[Edward:] "Soon, as soon as I possibly can. I will make you safe first." His voice was hard.
[Bella:] "I love you," I reminded him.
[Edward:] "Could you believe that, despite everything I've put you through, I love you, too?" (20.139-143)
[Edward to Bella:] "Bella, you're going to be fine. Can you hear me, Bella? I love you." (23.22)
[Edward to Bella:] I sighed without returning my gaze. "It was impossible…to stop," he whispered. "Impossible. But I did." He looked up finally, with a half smile. "I must love you." (24.24)
