WINNING CONTEST ENTRY - Ring Of My Heart
I want Edward Cullen’s ring because it is a symbol. A symbol not only of Edward and Bella’s relationship but a symbol of Edward Cullen himself; it represents the depth of their unlikely relationship.
A relationship felt so deeply that at its very beginnings, Edward Cullen could hardly touch Bella without putting them both at risk.
This exemplifies how unmistakably genuine their relationship was, because while it lacked romantic physicality, their love bonded them more than anything ever could. That bond is represented in Edward Cullen's ring.
In addition, the ring pays is a true expression of Edward’s inner self. The ring is his mother’s, a symbol of his commitment to family and his ties to the human world.
It represents his sense of moral virtue. He wants to be the gentleman and marry Bella, even when he doesn’t have to.
However, Edward Cullen knows that what he and Bella have is real, and that it is something to be both embraced and celebrated.
The Twilight series is the tale of a journey through love. This is a journey through temptation, threat, and despair – all with the heat of passion and the power of love guiding the way.
This ring would mean the world to me and my boyfriend who are on our own journey through love. We fell in love five short months before he was sent to a military school 3,000 miles away.
We have stayed together, and ever since, every moment we have with each other has become a blessing.
When we had just one night together for my birthday, he took me to see New Moon. More recently, just before leaving on his latest Naval training, we saw Eclipse together.
After seeing the way my heart shone and my eyes lit up during the engagement scene, he mentioned how he wished he could afford to buy me a ring like Bella’s. However, he knows that he already has my heart, and that that’s more than enough for me.
Regardless, I know that having this ring would be a blessing to us both, and would serve as a symbol of our love and commitment to each other, just as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan have shown theirs.
