Why I want Bella's Engagement ring

CONTEST ENTRY - Edward Cullen is the perfect guy. Like Bella says in Twilight and like one of my Twilight shirts say, That was the first night I dreamed of Edward Cullen." The first time I read the book I dreamed of Edward. Then when I saw the movie I dreamed of him again. Edward is a magnificent 'dream guy.' He is perfect boyfriend material.
Like the other vampires, Edward is amazingly beautiful. His skin is like marble, both cold and hard. His bronze hair is always in disarray. Bella describes his smile as “her crooked smile.”
Edward is slender, but his muscular build is something that attracts most girls. His eyes are a golden brown/black depending on how thirsty he is.
All of that makes Edward just that more desireable. The typical stereotype for girls is, I want a guy that is tall, dark, and handsome. Edward is tall but he is pale white. He does have the handsome part down to a tee.
It is not only his physical traits that attract me but his personality as well. The way he looks at Bella is enough to drive any girl wild. For one, the smell of her blood drives him wild. Then there is the fact that he can't read her mind which makes her all the more interesting to him. It is absolutely amazing.
When you look at Edward's eyes you can see his passion, longing and desire for Bella. That is what I want in a guy. I want him to desire me as much as Edward desires Bella. And really in all honesty, what woman wouldn't want that?
When Edward proposed to Bella in the end of New Moon, I cried my eyes out. It wasn't like I wasn't expecting that question to come. I mean after all I have read the books several times.
I cried when Edward asked Bella to marry him because I wanted to be the one that he asked. I can't even describe it. When I see Edward, my heart starts beating wildly in my chest. I get really hot because I have this longing for him to be mine. The only thing I can say is I am "unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him" as Bella says. But that is how I feel.
I can't get enough of Edward. I have to get a glimpse of him everyday. I either watch Twilight or New Moon once a day just to get my fill of Edward. And it never fails. I always cry whenever Edward proposes to Bella.
Being the one to win Bella's engagement ring would mean the world to me. I would wear if every day. Wearing the ring would make me feel that much closer to Edward and that would make my day.
The only thing that would be better than me winning the ring would be if I was the one to marry Edward and not Bella. But I have to be realistic and realize that my marrying Edward is probably never going to happen.
Winning Bella's engagement ring would make me happy, overjoyed, and speachless, but my longing for Edward Cullen will never cease to exist. I will forever and always be TEAM EDWARD!!!!!
