Chapter 6: Welcome Home
I sighed and sunk back onto the chair, I had once again returned from the bathroom. I was feeling too angsty, I wanted to get there soon but it seemed like time moved slowly. Every so often I looked at the TV hanging in the air, trying to get distracted by the mindless movie that was playing.
I couldn't focus. I didn’t know why I was so jumpy. Half of it was for the fact that I was on my honey moon with Edward, the other part was where we were going, which I still didn’t know. But Edward promised I would like it, but that we would only be there for a day, then the real honey moon started. I had no idea what that meant.
Edward seemed relaxed, he was casually laying his head against the headrest, his eyes closed. He seemed at ease and a light smile played on his face.
I sighed frustrated once more and got up, I felt Edward’s hand press my down gently back to the seat.
"What is it, my love?" He asked stroking my hair gently, his eyes calm and soft.
I sighed, "just anxious for my honeymoon to start." I said looking down into the vast darkness, all I could see were the plane’s wings. No lights of building, no mountains in sight, we were somewhere in the ocean, most likely. I still had no idea where we were going, Edward had kept my eyes closed and distracted me anytime the attendants said where we were heading to.
"Yes, I see." he whispered taking my hand in his. "Relax, Bella, we will be there soon enough."
I glared at him, slightly, "where exactly are we going?" I asked him once again. Hoping for an answer this time.
He opened his closed eyelids slowly, his face showed no emotion, just blank. I hated when he did that, it was hard to decipher what he was thinking.
I sighed in indignation and flopped back into my seat with a grumble.
He chuckled lightly as I tried to see the movie, "You’ll like it. Trust me."
I payed attention tot eh movie this time, tried not to think about what Eward’s surprise was, and how much it annoyed me how he kept it a secret. I could see the actress running down a long street, the sun piercing her, but she kept running, sweat pouring down her face. The scene reminded me of when I ran to save my mother from James long ago. When I was weak. When I was still human.
I looked away from the screen when the bad guy that was chasing the girl caught up to her, pinning her against the wall and crushing her throat. Edward noticed my reaction to the movie and placed his hand on my cheek. I leaned into it and closed my eyes.
If I was still human I could have fallen asleep. But since I wasn't, I had to endure this angst for another two hours, as Edward had said.
Somehow I managed to drift away, my mind on something else, because moments later --or it felt that way-- Edward shook me and told me we had arrived. I hadn’t heard when the pilot announced our arrival, so I pouted. Edward chuckled and took out something from his pocket, I rolled my eyes with a grimace. It was the blindfold.
But I sighed with indignation and sunk my head so Edward could tie the blindfold. He pecked my head and I lifted my head, blinded once more.
"This isn’t funny anymore, Edward." I mumbled as I stood up.
I heard Edward laugh softly, "I know, for you it isn’t, but it’s quite entertaining for me." He said, and took my hand in his.
He maneuvered me through the plane, careful not to step on little children on the way out, and managed to keep me balanced as we descended the stairs.
I could tell that we were outside, the air was fresher, less stuffy. There were cars and people cheering to be reunited with their families or friends. I could also hear the wind howling softly and the rain pouring gently on the pavement. I still had no clue where we were, and I couldn’t take off my blindfold without upsetting Edward, so I stayed silent and anxious as we stepped into, what seemed like, a cab.
"Take us here." Edward said, careful not to say the name of the place.
"Here?" The driver asked. He had a small accent, from what I could tell, was Argentinian.
"Yes." Edward responded politely.
The man sighed, "it’s going to cost you some," he said.
Edward chuckled, "Don’t worry about that, sir." And I knew Edward had pulled out a wad of money and handed it to the driver. I rolled my eyes even though he couldn’t see me, and managed to slap some part of him, most likely his arm.
Edward kissed me lips softly, "ready for your surprise?" he asked.
I nodded and felt the cab drive off.
About an hour later, the car stopped. Edward opened the door for me and I stumbled --still blind-- out of the smoke smelling car.
Edward gave my hand a soft squeeze and began to strip away the blindfold from my face. I still stayed with my eyes closed until Edward whispered to open them.
I sighed and opened them slowly. Realizing that I knew this place very well, knowing that in this place I had many memories, in which some where bad, and some were good. My eyes trailed up the driveway, wet and slippery. They trailed up to the front door, and in the window, where a man was standing, peeking cheerfully through it.
I hadn’t returned to this place since I was turned into a vampire. I couldn’t ever return to this place, considering what I was. And yet, we were here. Standing in front of my house...in Forks.
I gasped and tightened my grip on Edward’s hand. I looked up at him and he was smiling too.
"Welcome home, Bells." My dad called coming down the driveway with an umbrella. I had just seen my dad, no more than seven hours ago. He knew all along I was going to come back. "How was the rest of the wedding night?" Charlie asked. Since Charlie left around one in the morning, he wanted to know what happened after, which wasn’t much, just a lot of dancing and laughing, mostly whom were vampires.
"Hey dad," I said, "the rest of the night was just as fun, a lot of dancing," I said glancing at Edward who had been a dancing machine last night.
"Bella!" I heard someone say, I recognised Phil and then Renee, they were here too?
I looked at Charlie questioningly.
Charlie only smiled sheepishly.
Then I heard another voice, a voice that had haunted me for many months after I was turned. A voice I knew well enough. And the owner of it, I knew pretty well, had to be pretty upset with me.
I looked up to the front door, where a tall russet colored man was leaning casually against the door frame. My breath caught in my throat as I stared into the dark somber eyes of Jacob.
