Chapter 2: Truth Be Told
… “Edward and I are engaged.”
Charlie’s eyes widened farther than they were before, a feat which I had previously believed impossible. Then he fell back on the couch, and didn’t move.
I rushed to the couch, and Edward was there right beside me. “Dad?” I called, hoping for some sign of movement, or recognition. “Are you okay?” I waved my hand in front of his face, and still nothing.
I turned to Edward, and he looked at me calmly, and smiled. “Perhaps we should just let him rest for a minute,” he said, and made to close Charlie’s eyes until he heard Charlie groan, and then saw my dad blink.
He slowly sat up, putting his head in his hands. “Engaged?” he managed to choke out. “As in to be wed?”
As calmly as I could, I said, “Yes dad, as in a big flowery wedding with more people than I probably want to be there, and a white dress, and bridesmaids.” I sat down on the couch next to him and rubbed his back. “You said that you wanted me to tell you before I did anything major, and I’m reasonably sure that this constitutes as major.”
He looked at me, but before he could speak, I continued. “Dad, this is what I want. I love Edward, and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. And, I want you to be there for everything.”
He shook his head. “Bella,” he began, “look what happened to me and Renee.” Obviously he was trying to play the ‘I’ve been there and done this’ card, which wasn’t going to sell me, or change my mind for that matter.
“This is different,” I said. “You two were in love with the idea of being in love with each other. I know that Edward loves me, and I love him back. And, I want to spend all eternity with him.”
This elicited a slight smile from Edward, but I plowed on. “You know that I don’t like big social events, but I want to do this right. I’ve got a wedding planner and everything. I’m planning on telling mom after I get done telling you.”
He looked at me with narrowed eyes. “You got a wedding planner before you told your parents?” he asked, suspiciously, turning to Edward with a furious glance. “It’s Alice, so there’s no need to start a fight,” I said before Charlie got a chance to use some of his choicest swear words. “Outside of Edward’s family, you are the first one to know.”
Charlie sighed, and put his head back in his hands. I smiled slightly, and then began with what I hoped would be my selling line. “I know that everything is happening so fast, but you just have to remember that I’ll always be your little girl.”
He smiled, and a slight chuckle emerged from his throat. He looked up at me, and hugged me. “I know,” he said. Then he let go of me, and turned to Edward. “If I hear one complaint, or that you have done something wrong,” he said slowly, “I swear to you that I will come after you myself with the heaviest artillery the police station has on site.”
Edward’s grin grew slightly, but it wasn’t anything annoying. “I understand exactly,” he said with perfect sincerity, which I knew to be true. Edward probably understood more going through Charlie’s mind than Charlie probably did. “I promise you that I will do whatever it takes to keep her happy and safe.”
Charlie’s expression softened slightly. “I know you will,” he said calmly. Then he stood up, and shook Edward’s hand. “Congratulations to my daughter and son in-law.”
A few minutes later, we were still making small talk about random events that had happened since the battle, when the thought hit me. “Charlie, why did you think I was pregnant?” I asked, and my dad blushed a deep crimson.
“Well,” he began, searching for the right words, “Renee called me, and I couldn’t quite understand what she was talking about, but all I could get out of the conversation was something about babies, and she mentioned Phil and you, and I think I might of heard Edwards name mentioned once, but then the connection broke, and I decided to wait until she called back.”
“Babies,” I mumbled. Then a thought hit me. ‘What if…’ I thought to myself. Then I turned around for a phone, but Edward had already fished out his from his pocket. I opened it and dialed Renee’s number. It rang twice, and then I heard a voice from the other end.
“Hello?” said Renee.
“Hi mom, its me,” I said in a greeting.
“Oh! Bella! I don’t know if Charlie told you yet. Have you heard the big news?”
“No, I haven’t,” I answered, my anticipation growing larger by the second.
“Oh wonderful, I get to tell you!”
I waited for the news which I was almost certain of to come.
“You’re going to be a big sister!” exclaimed Renee, and I broke into a wide grin.
I covered the bottom of the cell phone and whispered, “She’s the one who’s pregnant!” to Charlie and Edward, both of whom looked surprised.
Charlie held his hand out for the phone, and I said into the receiver, “Hold on, Charlie wants to talk to you.” I handed the phone to Charlie, and then Edward and I left the room as Charlie began talking to Renee, which would later turn out to be one of the longest conversations they would ever have.
Edward and I walked back into the hall, and toward the stairs. As soon as we were out of Charlie’s sight, he picked me up into his arms and carried me to my room in less than a second, before laying me down on my bed and kissing me.
After I had reached the point where I needed to breathe, I broke the kiss, and he smiled. “That wasn’t as hard as you thought it would be, now was it?” he asked.
I was a little disoriented, as I always was around him, but I managed to get out the words, “No, it wasn’t,” before beginning to kiss him again.
After about an hour of making out, we made our way downstairs and waved goodbye to Charlie before walking out the door.
We walked down the driveway, hand in hand, until Edward courteously opened my door and helped me into the silver Volvo. In a flash, he was in the driver’s seat, closing the door.
“I’ll tell Renee later,” I said softly, before he leaned over and kissed me. Then he started the car, and we began the drive back to what was to eventually be my new home.
As we drove by the turnoff for the Lapush road, we saw a boy, probably about Edward’s age, walking by. He was blonde, wearing jeans, running shoes, and a dark, long-sleeved shirt, and had a backpack.
I didn’t really think anything of it at the time, but Edward looked out my window, as though mildly interested in his identity, but we drove by without interruption.
I glanced at him once, and saw the expression on his face. “What is it?” I asked, wondering what it was that could possibly put an interested expression on his face.
“Nothing,” he said quickly, turning to face the road again.
I looked at him curiously, but he said nothing more on the subject, so I decided to let it rest… for now.
