5. Loss and Gain
I woke up to a beeping sound and I was laying flat on my back. I felt thirsty too. I looked around and I saw that Edward hadn’t realized I was awake. “Hello.” I said my voice hoarse and his head snapped to me. Edward let out a sigh of relief and he brought his hand up to my cheek.
“Hello love.” He said and smiled. “How do you feel?” He asked looking me over.
I thought about that for a second, “I’m a bit thirsty. How long have I been here?” I asked him and he got up and got me a cup of water and he helped me sit up and we adjusted the bed too.
“A couple of days.” He said and I could see sadness in his eyes. I wondered what it was. I looked down at my stomach and back to him. Had I lost the child.
“D-did I loose the baby?” I asked and I was scared, had I lost my child.
Edward looked up at me and smiled. “No, you didn’t. He said and pushed my hair out of my face. I sighed in relief. “You just passed out, we thought you had lost the child, you started bleeding and I was so worried. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have let you be alone with him.” Edward said and his eyes showed nothing but sorrow.
I reached one hand out and I saw the IV in my hand and I shuddered, “Edward this was not your fault. It was mine. I shouldn’t have said that but he wouldn’t let me go.” Edward looked up and smiled.
“You still afraid of needles?” He asked and I nodded, Edward laughed. “My sweet Bella.” He said and smiled at me.
I looked at Edward, “Edward what happened?” I asked him and I knew he would know. I kinda knew how it would be but not all of it. I knew I had lost my friendship with Jacob. I wonder where the rest of the Cullen’s where. Edward had probably told them to go home and now that I thought of it where was my father?
I was about to ask Edward but he had interrupted me. “Well Jake left, and we took you to the hospital. I wanted to kill him but I didn’t, you needed to be taken care of.” Edward said and sighed. “I didn’t kill him.” He said and looked down.
I knew that if he had killed him I would be mad but I would understand and a part of me wanted to kill him to for putting me in the hospital and I almost lost mine and Edward’s child. I didn’t know what to say to that so I changed the subject. “Where is everyone?” I asked and looked around.
Edward’s head came back up, “Carlisle is here, working. Everyone else is at home and your father had just went home. I told him to get some rest. He wasn’t to happy about you being pregnant though. He loved the idea of him being a grandpa but not that idea of me being the father.” Edward said and smirked. I knew he’d probably told him, since she was in the hospital and that some of it was because of the baby.
“Well that’s Charlie.” I replied and smiled. “So when am I able to leave? I don’t like hospitals and needles so the sooner the better.” I said and nodded.
Edward just rolled his eyes and laughed. “I can probably get you out of here.” Edward said and paused. “Remember the first time you were in here and I sprang you from the hospital and you were all mad at me?” He asked and looked at me with his golden eyes.
I laughed, “Yes I was very mad at you. You told on me, and they made me go in the ambulance and everything.” I said and shuddered.
“Oh it wasn’t that bad.” Edward said and smiled.
“Well you weren’t me so you wouldn’t know. And you couldn’t read my mind so ha.” I said, I felt like I won and I grinned proudly.
“Okay you win.” He said and smiled. “I’ll be right back. I’m gonna go see if we can get you out of here.” He said and got up and came over and kissed me on the forehead. I breathed in his scent and sighed. His scent still made me happy.
“Okay, I’ll be here.” I said and rolled my eyes and he just laughed and left the room. I looked around, it seemed so quite now. I wondered what I could do while he was gone. I saw my clothes sitting on the counter, they were new clothes. Probably Alice brought them knowing when I would wake up. I smiled and I pulled the covers off revealing some bruises on my legs. I cursed under my breath and sighed. I grabbed my IV poll and got out of the bed. My legs were still a little wobbly and I gripped the IV poll for balance.
Once I got my balance back and walked over to my clothes and grabbed them and I went to the bathroom, I opened the door and walked in and shut the door. I would feel so much better in my own clothes not these hospital clothes. I looked at my IV and wondered how to take it out so I could put my clothes on. I looked at the tubes and I saw where it looked like you unscrewed it. I smiled and unscrewed it and it came off. I nodded and put my clothes on. I looked up when I heard someone enter the bathroom.
“Bella,” Edward’s voice rang though the quietness and he strode over to me.
“What?” I asked innocently and he rolled his eyes. I had all my clothes on and he looked at the wire and smiled.
“How did you figure that out?” He asked and smirked, he grabbed the two wires and hooked them back together.
“A way,” I replied and raised an eyebrow.
Edward ignored that and led me out of the bathroom to the bed and got me back in bed. “Well Carlisle is going to come in and check you over. Then we can go home.” He smiled my smile and I smiled back.
“Good.” I said.
We pulled up to the house and I looked at it and smiled, it still amazed me at how big it was and I just loved it. I hadn’t realized Edward had gotten out of the car and he came over and opened my door. “Why, thank you Mr. Cullen.” I said and grabbed his arm and started walking with him.
“Your very welcome Mrs. Cullen.” He said proudly and kissed my cheek. I looked up to the house and saw everyone and they were all happy it looked. Rose was starting to like me and we had to be on good terms because we would be together for a long time. As long as me and Edward were together which would be a long time.
“Welcome back Bella.” Esme said and smiled at us.
“It’s nice to be back.” I said and smiled. We all went into the house and everyone went off and did there things except for Alice. She stayed in front of us and I raised my eyebrow. “Yes Alice?” I asked afraid of what she was going to ask. I looked at Edward and he was beaming. [I]’What is he so happy about?’[/I] I thought and I looked back to Alice.
“Can we pick names for your daughter?” She asked me and I froze. My heart literally stopped. We were having a baby girl. [I]’Well there be no surprise later on but oh well.’[/I] I thought and I smiled, my heart started beating again.
Edward looked at me and I smiled. “Yes, that would be nice.” I replied and Alice led us to the kitchen where she had papers everywhere. I sighed and looked at Edward and he was still smiling and her urged me forward. “Alice what is all of that?” I asked her and looked at her and she was practically bouncing.
“Its all sorts of names.” She said and I sat down with Edward.
2 hours passed and we only agreed on 4 names.
I really liked Jamie and Natalie but it was both Edward’s and I’s choice. I yawned and Edward looked over at me. “I think its time for you to get some sleep.” He said and I nodded greatly. Alice nodded as well and picked up all the papers and Edward picked me up and carried me up the stairs to our room and set me down.
“Your so sweet.” I said and kissed him lightly on the lips.
I went over and got a pair of pajamas and put them on and climbed in bed and under the covers. Edward laid on top of the covers as always and I yawned once more. “I love you, goodnight.” I said and he smiled.
“I never tire of hearing you say those words.” He said and kissed me on the forehead. “I love you too, goodnight. Sweet dreams.” He said and he pulled me to him as much as he could with the covers between us and I laid my head in the crock of his arm and drifted off to sleep, happy.
