"Yes," I whisper to him, "I think he deserves it. I think he deserves to be remembered....I think..it will help."
"That's sounds perfectly reasonable." Edward says. He grabs my hand gently. "Bella, I'll help you through all of this. What ever you need. Alice will help too....Anything."
I nod and silently thank god for such an amazing husband. I sit and think of Charlie and everything that's happened. After a minute my one question blurts out.
"How?"It's out before I can stop it.
"How what?" He asks not understanding. His eyes question mine.
"How did he...die?" I force myself to finish the last of the sentence. It hurts more than I expected. I force back tears.
Edward sighs. "Are you sure you want to know?" He asks. HE looks at me with his golden eyes. They once again question.
I nod, unable to speak through the tears that I can no longer force back.
"All they told me was that he was driving some people, I later found out it was Angela and Jessica. They told me he got out of his car to...help someone who was stuck....on the tracks." Eh doesn't look at me ads he says this. He knew Charlie too, I'm sure he's hurting as well.
I'm sure my expression is horrified. Edward continues anyway.
"A train came through...and he wasn't...fast enough. I found out from Angela that he tripped, and she thinks he hurt his leg, so that's why he couldn't move."
"Is that everything?" I ask through my tears. I sob for a couple minutes before Edward whispers back.
"That's the thing....The person...on the tracks..it was Jacob."
"Where are we going?" I ask as I easily catch up with her. She stops and turns to look at me.
"We're going to get ice cream." She says cheery as ever. She smiles at me and while I can't help but smile back, I don't like the idea.
"Now?" I ask glancing over my shoulder. The heartbreaking scene behind us.People are still gathering and crying.
"Why not?" She asks shrugging. She looks over to the scene and looks back at me unaffected.
"Well...Charlie....He's dead...Don't you think we should... I don't know...be respectful?" I look for her reaction.
"For who?! For what reason?!" She asks putting her arms out questioning me as well. "Do you think Charlie will care if we stay? Who will care if we stay? If anything I think we should get out of their way."
Her words work their magic on me. I hate to agree with her but I can't help but. I silently walk forward and this time she follows behind me.
Bella's POV Two weeks later.
"I can't believe you guys are going on your honeymoon!" Alice says. She smiles big as me.
I nod at her. I honestly can't either. She grabs our bags and puts them in the trunk of the limo for us. She does this faster than I can blink.
She gives me a kiss on the cheek and makes her way back to the other Cullens watching us go. They gather and watch as we step forward to make our goodbyes.
Time for the sad goodbyes. We hug, we kiss and we mummer goodbye. It's a warm farewell. I can't help but smile.
"Where are you two lovebirds off to again?" Asks Emmett as we lean into a hug. I'm engulfed in his large green shirt as I mummer.
"I don't know Edward hasn't told me. He said it's a surprise." I jokingly pout. Edward just comes over to me and gently takes my hands.
"You'll love it, there's no need to worry." HE looks at me with his golden eyes and they convince me.
"But where?" I plead as we make our way towards the waiting limo.
I'll tell you when we're there." He says as he gracefully glides inside before me. I clumsily follow.
"Please!!!" I give him some puppy dog eyes. I lean up against him.
"Ok, Ok" She says and pulls me into a nice, cold hug. "We're going to..."
