5. Ready to Run
Rating 4.5/5 Word Count 821 Review this Chapter
When we came downstairs Alice was already off the couch running to hug me.
“Oh my God, Bella, you look amazing!”
“Thanks, Alice,” they all gathered around me and Edward as they proceeded to tell me how wonderful I looked. But, of course, Emmett had to get some jokes in.
“Well, apparently Edward as like an animal in bed,” to which Edward punched Emmett in the arm quite hard.
“Stop it boys. It’s Bella’s time right now,” Esme said.
“Ok. So, Bella, hurt like hell didn’t it?” Emmett said.
“I, actually, can’t seem to remember it that well.”
“What?! Why didn’t I get any drugs?” Whilst everyone was laughing at Emmett Carlisle decided it was time to break it up.
“Edward? Bella? May I please speak to you up in my office?” we both nodded and followed Carlisle up the stairs and into his office. Once we were in I couldn’t help but turn and look at the wall full of paintings. Stories I still hadn’t heard yet, but had an eternity to hear. I smiled as I thought that.
“Please sit down,” Carlisle said. I was vaguely reminded of in those old sitcoms when a student was sent to the principal’s office because they were in trouble. “Don’t look so worried, Bella. You’re not in trouble,” Carlisle said with a slight chuckle. I loosened up almost immediately.
Carlisle opened his mouth to speak but Edward raised his hand to stop him. “Carlisle, before you start, I would like to inform Emmett and Alice that if they’re going to try and sneak by the door and listen they should try not to think about it so much.”
“Damn it! Bella, I thought you blocked that?” we heard Emmett yell from behind the door. We all laughed as we heard Esme scold them and then run off. Carlisle decided that this was the time to restore order.
“I guess you both are probably wondering why I brought you in here, let me explain. Once a vampire finds a mate they usually break away from the clan they were with, if they were with a clan. I have asked all the couples that have formed in this clan and now I will ask you if that is your plan.”
Edward spoke before I got the chance. “Actually, I think we need to keep Bella away from civilization for awhile. I was thinking of taking her to an extremely remote location and teaching her control. Then we would come back, of course.”
“I agree with you Edward. Do you have any idea where you two will go?”
“Yes, I do. But,” he shot a glance at me, “I would like it to remain a secret to someone.”
Carlisle smiled then continued, “Okay. When do you plan on leaving?”
“As soon as possible.”
“Okay. Well, I will let you two go and pack, then. We’ll all say goodbye tonight. Okay?” We nodded and walked (hand in hand) to our room.
I couldn’t believe that Edward had just said we were leaving. I didn’t know I was leaving. I didn’t know if I want to leave my new family. I couldn’t imagine living without Alice by my side. It seemed completely unfair.
Once we got to our room, Edward turned towards me. “Please tell me what you’re thinking before I go mad.” I smiled in memory of the line in a former conversation. But, got back to what I had been thinking.
“Why are we leaving?”
“You need to learn control. It would be ridiculously dangerous when there are humans so close.”
“No. Why are we leaving your family?”
“Our family. You’re one of us now,” he stated with a smile that I had to smile at.
“Okay. Then, why are we leaving our family?”
He let out his breath in a whoosh sound. “Because, I’m selfish.”
“I want you to myself,” he said while embracing me in the circle of his arms.
I kissed him on the neck. “That’s so sweet.”
“So, are you mad at me?” he gave me a very heartbreaking look and I was shocked by his question.
“Mad at you? Why?”
“Because, I’m selfish and I’m taking you away from Alice and Esme and Jasper and Emmett and –”
“Stop. I can handle it for awhile. I have an eternity to see them. Besides, this could be like our honeymoon,” I couldn’t help but smile as I finished my sentence. Honeymoon. With Edward. Because, he’s my husband. It gave me shivers.
“I can handle that,” he said as he leaned down to my face to kiss me.
I moved out of the way. I still had a question. “How did you not know what Carlisle was going to ask us? I wasn’t blocking his mind.”
“He was thinking of medical things. So confusing…” I laughed at him and kissed him on the nose.
“Well, let’s pack.”
