4. &&When I Open My Eyes, I Hope I'm Home [Chapter o4]

Rating 4.5/5   Word Count 2398   Review this Chapter

I stood in front of the Cullen home. I was saying goodbye forever… Or at least for a very long time. I’d already bid farewell to Charlie. It was possibly the hardest thing I’d ever done. He made me promise again and again that I’d call the second I got there. I promised myself I would call before I was changed. I sighed a bit, staring at the empty house, old memories filling my mind.

It looked like it had when I had come while Edward was gone. Everything was empty, and the house looked like it wasn’t the same house it had been only a few mere hours before. I truly hoped that I would see Forks again soon. Maybe once I got control of myself, and a year or two had passed…

I felt a cold pair of arms wrap themselves around me. I turned to face Edward… my husband. I felt my insides squirm again. I smiled at him and pushed my body into his, waiting for his embrace to whisk me off to Alaska. I couldn’t believe I was leaving. I couldn’t believe I was married. I couldn’t believe I’d be dead soon. I pushed down the fear, and only paid attention to the excitement.

Edward stroked the top of my head lovingly, holding me close. “My bride…” He murmured quietly, and I barely even caught it. I knew it still shocked him. It still caught me off guard as well.

I was so happy to finally be Edward’s. It was as official as it would ever get… Well, almost anyways. It made everything seem more intimate. When he held me, I would always remember it was my husband that was holding me, not my boyfriend. Even though I was sure I would hate being married, I loved it more than anything.

Every time our eyes met, everyone in the room dissolved. All that mattered was Edward. Every look we shared was so intimate, so loving. My stomach always got into knots when I remembered we’d be together forever soon. There would be no problems. If I would’ve known this would happen when I moved to Forks, I might’ve been a little more eager to come join Charlie.

When I first joined Forks…

My mind began to go over the memories I had of Forks. I remembered my first says, and Edward leaving because of how intoxicating I was to him. Then when he never left me alone. Our day in the meadow, when I saw him glitter like a million diamonds beneath the sun’s bright light. And before that, when he saved me from sure death beneath a Tyler’s truck… And the men in the alley. And James… So many things with Edward.

And then Jacob crossed my thoughts. I wondered what he was doing… I felt a pang of pity in my heart. He had always been there, and now I would never see him again. I knew it wasn’t fair to even have a thread of hope that I would. I couldn’t ask that much of him. I’d already torn his heart to shreds. I couldn’t expect him to go against Sam for me. Who was I to ask him?

Suddenly, I was in a tighter hug, and Edward was hushing me. It took me a moment to notice that I was gasping for air, and sobbing. Heavy tears poured down my cheek. And so we stood there, and I cried. I cried for Charlie, and for Jacob, and for Renee. For Sam, and Emily. Even Mike Newton, the boy who’d been pining after me from my very first day. We stood there for what felt like an eternity as I let my tears break free. Finally, my eyes were barren and dry, and I’d cried every tear I had in my body.

Edward didn’t say anything. He knew that I wasn’t changing my mind, and that I didn’t want to. I would do anything to be with Edward for eternity, but it was hard to leave all these others behind.

We flew to Alaska. I stared out the window, watching the white fluffy clouds wiz by. Most of the flight I spent sleeping. My body was exhausted, and I just needed rest. When I awoke, I was laying on a soft bed, in an unfamiliar room. I slowly sat up, and found I was alone. I shivered. Was this my new home? I was in a wooden room. There was a vanity, with a variety of my things set up, along with things that looked brand new. I stood up slowly, and opened a door. I had my own bathroom?

I was confused, and all I wanted was my Edward. I opened up the door and wandered out into the hallway. It was an incredibly large house. I opened my mouth to speak his name, but he was already there.

He smiled my favorite crooked smile, the smile the reached his eyes. He swept me up and spun me around. “We’re home.”

I nodded silently, but in spite of myself I smiled. This was my new life. I stood on my tip toes and kissed him gently on the lips. Before I knew it, Edward was fastening his arms around my waist, and was kissing me deeply. He curved his lips to match mine perfectly. I felt dizzy as I forgot to breathe.

He pulled away and grinned.

“Hm, someone seems anxious for me to change.” I laughed a bit, and found that I too was excited.

He nodded eagerly. “I’ve… grown fond of the idea. Then you won’t be so breakable, and we won’t have to be so careful when we’re… together.” He smiled slyly and lifted me up, carrying me down the stairs.

Everyone was in a circle, quietly talking together. Esme looked up, and met me with a smile. “Hello darling. Have a nice sleep?”

I nodded, and smiled. “How is everyone else?”

They all nodded, and Alice stood. “It’s about time you woke up. I was wondering if you were dead.” She grinned, all of her perfect white teeth showing.

I laughed. “No, I’m not dead. Not yet anyways.” I was positive the low grumble in Edward’s chest was a suppressed laugh. Emmet laughed aloud though.

“Soon you will be my real sister.” Alice’s excitement shown in her eyes, and I felt my own excitement bubble to the surface.

My eyes wandered to Jasper, who was smiling at me. Was this my own excitement, or his?

“Well… when is this going to happen?” I felt all eyes on me. I avoided Rosalie’s pair, though. I knew that she thought I was making the wrong choice, and I didn’t want to see the pain in her eyes.

Carlisle looked at me in shock. “You just woke up from a two day slumber. Is this what you really want, and so quickly?”

I nodded vigorously. I knew it was what I wanted, what I had been waiting for. “But first can I call Charlie?”

Alice handed me her phone, and I wiggled out of Edward’s grasp and dialed Charlie’s number. I waited anxiously as it rang two times. Then Charlie’s familiar voice answered.

“Hello?”

The sound broke my heart. I missed him so much already… “H-hey Ch-dad. I just thought I’d call and see how you’re doing…”

“How I’m doing? That doesn’t matter! How’re you, honey?”

I smiled. Charlie always cared for me, and he didn’t sound too good. He sounded… lonely. And he thought he could keep it at bay until my next visit… But I didn’t think there would ever be a visit.

“I’m good. We just finished moving onto the apartment on campus. It’s a nice school…”

“Well that’s fantastic Bells. Wait, hold on one second hon, someone’s in the driveway.”

His voice cut off, and I heard him open the front door. I could hear his voice in the background…

“Hey Billy, hey Jake…. Yeah, the game’s already on. Hey Jake, I’m on the phone with Bella. Would you like to talk to her?”

I felt myself get my hopes up. To talk to Jacob before I changed…

“Oh, you don’t? That’s too bad. Well, maybe next time. Okay Bella, I’m back.”

I swallowed the pain and tried to sound happy. “Well dad, I’m guessing Billy’s over. I’ll let you go.”

There was a pause on the other line.

“Bells… This may sound odd, but you sound on edge. Remember I’ll be here forever, and whenever you need me. You can tell me anything, you know that right?”

I nodded, forgetting her couldn’t see me. I felt moisture welling up in my eyes, and I tried to make it stop. “Yeah, dad, I know. Listen, I gotta run. I love you.”

“I love you too Bells. Take good care of yourself.”

The line clicked, and Charlie hung up.

I took a deep breathe, preparing myself to go back into the room. Had Charlie known? Why didn’t Jake even want to say goodbye…

I turned promptly and entered the room with a smile on my face. As if they had known all along I’d be ready, Carlisle, Alice, and Edward were the only ones in the room. The couch was cleared off, and Carlisle had a needle filled with some liquid.

“Morphine,” he explained before giving me a large dose. “I want this to be as easy as possible. So Edward tells me you’ve changed your mind, and he’s going to be doing this?”

I nodded, my heart racing. I knew all of them could hear. It was like my heart knew that it’s beats were limited to the next few days.

I felt slightly drowsy. I laid on the couch, stretching out. “Edward…” I mumbled his name. “I’m ready.”

He slowly kissed my hand, and made his way up, kissing every inch of my skin as he went. His eyes glanced up at mine as I nodded numbly. He placed a final kiss near my shoulder, and I knew what he was about to do.

I barely felt his puncture my skin. At first there was nothing. Just my head swimming and my body shivering. Then, the familiar feeling came. I felt the liquid fire burn through my veins. I clenched my teeth, trying not to scream. I didn’t want to make Edward feel bad… but after a few seconds I couldn’t help it. I let out a loud, earsplitting scream.

My body began to shake viciously, and I kept screaming. It’s hard to explain the feeling, but I’ll try. It was like someone had lit fire to my blood. My heart hammered, trying not to tire. My whole body went into overload, trying to fix the mystery problem. The pain was unbearable. I could feel every inch of my body in pain.

-------------------------------------------------

I lay there, screaming. My body cried out to me, and I could feel everything slowly shutting down. My body would soon give in to the maddening torture.

No tears came. I wouldn’t waste the precious moisture on something so meaningless. I felt like every inch of my body was burning, and my skin would soon begin to peel. There was no pain like this. James’s attack would’ve been preferred over this. My mind couldn’t think. All I did was scream. Every now and then, the pain would dull slightly, and then over the next hours it would come back with a vengeance.

I just wanted it to be over. I felt exhausted, and drained. I knew the pain was worth what I was getting in return, but I wasn’t able to acknowledge that while the actual transformation took place.

If I was asked to explain, I couldn’t ever fully tell. It was beyond any pain I’d ever imagined. I never even knew anything could be so painful.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don’t know how long I laid there. It was like a never ending nightmare. I was so cold… yet my skin was on fire. Suddenly, I breathed in. My eyes shuddered open. My body felt incredibly weak. I whimpered, not sure what was going on. Edward’s arm touched my arm.

“Bella?” he whispered, wondering if I was conscious.

I nodded slowly. I felt light as a feather. Had something gone wrong?

I heard him sigh with relief. “I thought you’d never come back. I felt so helpless, watching you suffer. Carlisle gave you large amounts of morphine, but you were still in so much pain…” His voice faded, and I wondered if he blamed the pain on him.

“It’s worth it.” The sound of my own voice shocked me. It was like hearing someone else speak. It wasn’t my plain, monotone voice. It was an inviting voice, dripping with honey. I couldn’t understand it. Was that really me that spoke?

“Edward…” I paused. “Do I look any different?”

“I haven’t looked at you fully yet. I’ve been waiting until you were coherent.” His arms traced my arms. “But it doesn’t matter to me. I’ll love you no matter what.”

I tried to sit up, and I flew upwards. It was like I weighed nothing. I heard Edward chuckle slightly.

“Be careful, Bella. Every aspect about you will feel different. You’ll feel weightless, and you won’t know your own strength…”

I nodded, and let him wrap his arm around me. I felt my feet move with new grace. Every step felt beautiful. Edward was silent. It made me think… did he hate how I looked?

“What’s wrong?” I asked, alarmed.

“Nothing. You’re… well Bella, you’ve always been beautiful in my eyes, from day one. But now everything I love about you is just better… enhanced.” I felt his eyes trace my entire being. I could tell he was struggling to control his excitement.

“It’s what I think you were always meant to be…” His voice was soft, trying not to make me anxious. But it wasn’t working. I just wanted to see myself in the mirror.

He led me to my bathroom, and my eyes were closed. I stood in front of a new, full length mirror, but I was terrified to see myself. Would I look back to someone who wasn’t me? Would I finally match Edward’s beauty? Would I be fit to love him, and be by his side?

I took a deep breath, and opened my eyes.
