I stared at the test in my hands. I definitely could not believe it. How was this even possible?
How on earth could I be pregnant?
I was still in shock when I headed down the hall and into Edward's-our- room. I knocked on the door.
"Edward?" I called nervously.
"Yes, my love?" He answered back in his angelic voice. I could just picture him smiling crookedly. I could hear the bed springs creak as he got up. The door opened.
There he was; standing in front of me was Edward, in all his perfect, godlike (bare-chested) glory.
"H-hello." I squeaked. I could feel the color rising up to my cheeks. "I need... I need to..." I cleared my throat. "I need to talk to you. It's- important."
Confusion clouded his face. "You can talk to me whenever you want, Bella. You know that." He said, still confused as to why I was stuttering. Then he looked like he understood. "This is about when you will become a vampire, isn't it?" He looked at me expectantly.
My face hardened. "No, that's not it." I said impatiently, tapping my foot. "Even though that is what I want."
He rolled his eyes. "Bella, that will happen soon enough." He promised. "Now, what were you going to tell me?" He was trying to sound calm, but a hint of impatience played at the edge of his voice.
"Well, I'm- I'm..." I reverted back to stuttering.
"Yes?" he said. The impatience was more pronounced now. He threw up his hands. "For God's sake, spit it out, Bella!"
"I'm pregnant!" I blurted.
The last thing I saw before I fainted was Edward's shocked face.
I woke up later in Edward's arms. He gave me a soft smile. "Pregnant, eh?" I heard him say. I covered my ears.
"No, no!" I moaned. "Why? How is it even possible?"
Edward gently stroked some hair out of my face and tucked it behind my ear. "I'm not entirely sure, Bella." He sighed. "Perhaps we should go talk to Carlisle. He may know something."
I sat up quickly and dizziness overtook me. I fell back into Edward's lap. "Okay, Bella, let's go." Edward chuckled. I sat up again slowly, then wobbled my way out of our room.
Edward took my hand as we walked down the hall to Carlisle's study. We paused at the door. Edward raised his hand as if to knock, and I took a deep breath.
Edward knocked. "Carlisle? May we come in?" I knew he was only speaking aloud for my benefit.
"Of course." Carlisle said calmly. "Enter."
Edward pushed open the door and we stepped in. Carlisle was sitting in his desk chair, staring out the window. Edward shut the door behind us, quite unnecessarily. I knew that everyone had heard my conversation with Edward earlier. I wondered why no one had stormed us earlier, with questions flying, or why Alice hadn't told Edward (or me) earlier. She must have seen this coming. Come to think of it, she had been grinning at me strangely all week.
I took another deep gulp of air. "Carlisle..." I started. "I- we need to tell you something."
