When I woke up the next morning I was shaking. I had a really bad dream that night which involved telling Renee about my engagement. She had been angrier than I would expect. She told me if I was going to get married I was going to be disowned on her part. It didn’t make me any less nervous about telling Renee. I wanted to cry I was so scared my dream was going to come true.
“Bella, are you ok? You’re shaking and you were crying your sleep what’s wrong?” Edward’s voice was full of concern,
I knew I had to tell him. But as soon as I started I was going to cry. Renee could be such a push over. This was going to be harder than most things I have ever done. Edward knew I was scared but I don’t think he understood the half of it.
“I had a dream Renee disowned me when we told her about the wedding!” I managed to choke out before I started crying,
Edward pulled me tightly against his chest. Kissing my forehead and letting my tears stain his shirt. I was still shaking in his arms I was so upset and scared about that dream. Edward could tell and let me take as long as I need to clam down. After about a good hour and a half of crying I finally clamed down and stopped shaking. I took a human minute to go and brush my teeth and get dress. When I returned Edward was sitting on my bed looking at the computer screen.
“What are you doing?” I asked confused,
“Bella you have an e-mail from Renee. She is not happy with you. Alice called me while you were gone to warn me. I wanted to read it before you came back to see if it was really as bad as Alice said. Alice had other news to but that can wait for awhile.” Edward said coming and wrapping his arms around my waist and pulling me into his lap,
I looked down at the computer and my mothers e-mail. I had to reread it a few times before I understood. She already knew about the wedding without me having to tell her. She had gotten the invitation in the mail yesterday. Damn it Alice why did you have to be so on top of things. Renee had wanted to call but was afraid that she would wake me up. She was also afraid she was going to lose any composer she actually had about this. I sighed as I reread the e-mail before hitting the reply button.
Clam down just a little! I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you about the wedding it’s just that you had been gone and things happened really fast. I was planning on telling you tonight but I guess the invitation made it there first. I really miss you and love you! Please call me and let me know when you’re coming in for the wedding. Everyone says hi!
I reread the message before hitting send. I sighed and leaned back into Edward’s chest. He kissed me softly and smiled. I pulled him closer and kissed him harder wrapping my arms around his neck. He pulled away slightly looking at me with weary eyes. I nodded and he got up and carried me towards the bed. Well this was one way to deal with telling my parents I thought. Suddenly there was pounding on my bedroom door.
“EDWARD WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? DID YOU NOT TELL HER THE OTHER PART OF MY VISION?” Alice shouted,
I groaned and pulled my clothes back on. Edward did the same hurrying before Alice broke down the door. What was Alice talking about? Why couldn’t Edward and I be intimate without Alice freaking out right now?
“Edward, what is she freaking out about?” I asked kind of mad Alice had interrupted,
“YOU DIDN’T TELL HER? EDWARD, YOU IDIOT THIS EFFECTS EVERYONE!” Alice shouted still pounding on the door,
“Alice will you please go home and clam down? I’m going to tell Bella now because I know there’s no way your going to leave us alone until I do!” Edward said his voice just as irritated as mine was,
“Fine, but I will be watching and if you don’t tell her I will come back!” Alice sighed,
Finally the frantic pounding stopped. I looked at Edward now his face had a worried expression. Whatever it was he had to tell me couldn’t be good if it made Alice act that way. I leaned in and kissed him again wanted to pick up where we left off but this time he pushed me away.
“Bella, no we can’t Alice will be back here in a minute if we start that again!” Edward said grumpily,
“Ok fine, what is it?” I sighed wanting nothing more than for this to be over with,
“Bella, Alice… well she saw…. she saw that you were… that you were pregnant!” Edward finally managed to choke out,
I felt the blood rush to my face. I was what? How could that be possible? Vampires couldn’t have kids! This was insane so much for getting changed on my wedding night. I was going to have to wait an entire nine months to get changed and I might not even be able to be changed after that.
“Bella, honey are you ok?”
“How could this… how did this happen? I didn’t think vampires could have kids?”
“No one really knows Bella! I feel horrible! I never should have let this happen!”
“It’s not your fault Edward it’s what we both wanted! But will this change things? Will I be able to be changed now that we’re going to have a baby?”
“No Bella you can still be changed! Alice saw us both as vampires taking care of our… well I don’t know if you want to know the sex of the baby so I won’t say! But she saw you pregnant after being changed so things will be ok.”
I smiled things would be ok. I was going to be a mom too wow. I was so excited that I was going to have a family of my own. But then I thought Rosalie she was going to be so hurt. I was going to have everything she always wanted. It was everything she was never going to have.
“Bella what’s wrong aren’t you happy?” Edward asked his voice full of concern,
“Of course I am it’s just I was thinking about Rosalie. Edward we’re getting everything she always wanted and can never have. She already hates me Edward now she’s really going to!” I sighed tears filling my eyes,
Edward looked at me and realized what I was saying. He pulled me tighter and promised me everything would be ok. I tired to believe that but it was hard. I felt so guilty I was getting everything Rosalie wanted. We sat like that for awhile before Edward’s phone rang. He looked down at the screen before answering it. He said a few things to whoever had called before handing me the phone.
I was shocked to find Rosalie on the other end. She asked me to please come home and said she wanted to talk to me. I knew I had to go. With all the excitement I almost forgot that I was now living at Edward’s. I hung up and dried the rest of my tears before getting up and helping Edward get the rest of my stuff. I left a not for Charlie saying I was having dinner with the Cullens in honor of my first night in their home.
When we arrived at the house Rosalie was there waiting for me. She looked at Edward and he nodded before walking into the house. Rosalie motioned toward the back garden and I fallowed her. We sat down under a large tree and she smiled at me warmly before speaking.
“Bella, Alice told me about what she saw and about how afraid you were that I was going to hate you for it. But it’s not like that I couldn’t be happier for you. Sure this is what I always wanted but I can’t have that and I’ve come to accept it. I will still get to be part of this though. I will get to be an aunt to this baby and that’s good enough for me. I’m so sorry that your thoughts of me ruined your good news.” Rosalie smiled and gave me a large hug,
“Thanks, I’m really glad you’re my sister Rosalie. I don’t think this baby could have a better aunt!” I was still kind of surprised but I felt so much better,
We walked back to the house where Edward greeted us. He carried me up to his well technically it was now our room. I smiled as he placed me in the middle of our bed. Maybe we could finally finish what we started. I think Edward was thinking the same thing because he began kissing me deeply. This time no one stopped us. Afterwards I fell asleep in Edward’s arms dreaming about our child.
When I woke up I had tons of questions for Edward. I need to know if we were going to have a boy or a girl. I wondered if the baby was going to be born a vampire or if we were going to have to change it when it got old enough. I felt his arms tighten around me. He knew I had questions I could tell by the look on his face.
“You asked most of your questions in your sleep would you like to know the answers?” Edward asked a huge smile spreading across his face,
“Yes” I breathed,
“Girls Bella we’re going to have two beautiful twin girls!”
“Twins wow!” I said feeling a smile creep across my face,
“Your next question was harder to figure out but Alice helped me out a little!”
“They will be born vampires and grow up until they reach a certain age and then stop forever being that age.”
I was so happy I could almost scream. I excused myself for a human minute so I could brush my teeth and get ready for the day. Edward happily gave me breakfast in bed before Alice dragged me off to Seattle to do maternity shopping even though I wasn’t even a month pregnant yet. Edward went hunting while I was gone and I couldn’t wait to see him when he got back. Edward and I agreed to keep this from Charlie and Renee because neither of them would ever be in the twin’s lives so we felt no need for them to know. I sat down in the middle of our bed and blasted happy music from the stereo while I wait for Edward to come home and take me to Charlie’s to have dinner.
