Alice ran me up the stairs and into Carlisle's office. The office was just like I remembered it. There were so many books he had. It was unbelievable. Carlisle was sitting at his desk. When Alice and I entered he looked up and smiled, but it didn't reach his eyes.
"Bella, Alice, please sit down." He motioned for us to sit in the two seats in front of his desk. "Bella, I'm so sorry about Charlie." He looked at Alice and his lips were moving so fast. I knew they were talking about something they didn't want me to her. After about a minute Carlisle turned back to me.
"Bella," he sighed. "I know this might be hard for you, but I think it would be best if Edward..." I shivered involuntarily. "Told you what happened today."
"Umm...Oooook." I said.
"He'll be in his room Bella, you may go now." I got up and walked out of the room. I slowly walked to Edward's room. I was so nervous. I didn't want to talk to him or see him, but there was a small part of me that wanted to talk to him, that wanted to see him, that wanted to be in his arms. I knocked on the door softly. I knew he would hear it. I then slowly very slowly opened the door and walked in.
Edward was sitting on a chair looking out the window. He acted as if he didn't hear me come in. I went over to his couch and sat down. It was the most awkward I have ever felt. "Hi," I said quietly. I looked over at him and was still looking out the window. Great I'm supposed to be in here to find out what happened to Charlie and why Edward had his blood all over him, but it's getting nowhere. He won't even acknowledge that I'm here. I looked down at the floor, pretending to be interested in the design of it
"I'm surprised you came," he finally said. I still looked down not wanting to meet his eye contact. He sighed and the continued. His voice spoke softly. "Bella, I would never do that to Charlie." I looked up into his eyes. The were so amazing and so sincere. "I was framed, before you got there," He paused, "before I got there, Victoria came." He hissed as he said her name. Victoria was there!!!!!!!So that means...How could she??? "I opened the door and she was......" I felt sick. My head felt heavy and I started to see the room spin. Edward must have noticed because he came over and put his arms around me. He put me on his lap and he kissed the top of my head.
"How...Why.." I had so many questions, but I knew Edward wouldn't know most of them. Why would she do this? Then I remembered my dream. Oh-No my dream was coming true….but in a different manner. She killed Charlie not Jake. Edward pulled me closer to him.
"She overheard our conversation this morning and.....don't worry Bella we'll catch her." He rested his chin on the top of my head. "We won't let her hurt you or anyone else, I promise." I turned my head and I looked up into his topaz eyes. What have I ever done to deserve him? He looked back into my eyes; my heart beating faster and faster. He smiled at the sound of it. "I love you so much Bella. I'll always be there for you."
"I love you too, Edward." He took my face in his hand and leaned his head in. The smell of his breath was intoxicating. My heart started to beat faster. He gently put his lips to mine. My heart stopped beating. BREATHE! I reminded myself. He pulled away and put his head on my chest listing to my heart. We sat there in silence for a little while., until he I felt him stiffen.
"What's wrong Edward?" I feared that Victoria was here.
"Alice and Carlisle want to talk to the whole family." He looked in my eyes and saw that I was afraid. "Don't worry Victoria isn't here." I was relieved with that. Then he stood up, placed me on his back and ran down to the living room.
Edward and I sat down on one of the couches. I looked around the room. Rosalie and Emmet were sitting together on another couch. Alice was sitting next to Jasper on the floor, Esme was in a chair. All that was missing was Carlisle. He came into the room and sat on a wooden chair next to Esme. I looked up at Edward and saw that he was looking at Alice. Bewilderment crossed his face. Something was wrong I could feel it. Just then Carlisle spoke up.
"For those who do not know it yet..." He paused and looked over to me. "but Charlie has left us today." Gasps were heard from Emmet and Rosalie. Esme started crying tearlessly. "Victoria visited him today." I heard, no felt, the growl that Edward let out. He held me closer.
"That little..." Every ones eyes turned to Emmet.
"Calm down Emmett we'll get her." Jasper interupted. I'm guessing by how fast Emmet callmed down Jasper had sent calming waves over to him.
"Bella, if you wouldn't mind we would like you to stay here." Carlisle looked at me again. Infact everyone looked at me. "We want to protect you the best we can from Victoria and we would think that it would be best if you stayed here."
"I.." I didn't know what to say I really wanted to stay and I was happy that they would keep me here but I didn't want to put them in danger. "I'd love too, but I don't want to put all of you in danger,"
"We don't mind it Bella," Esme spoke up. "We would love to have you here."
"Definately!" Rosalie said. This shocked me. SHe was being nicer to me because of the whole Italy thing, but I would never expect her to want me to stay in the same house as her.
"What do you say Bella?" Edward's velvety voice came into the conversation. I looked up at Edward and he smiled back at me. His eyes were so dazling so soft and warm, melting me. How could I refuse him? How could I refuse any of them?
"Of couse, I'll stay. As long as you guys promise me you'll be careful." Everyone in the room started laughing, everyone except Alice. No one really noticed she was there until she jumped up from the couch and started sobbing tearlessly. Every eye was on her and then Edward tensed. I looked up trying to read the expression on his face but there were so many emotions that it was hard for me to read.
"What's wrong?" I asked. It was the question everyone wanted to know.
"Nothing," I looked up at Edward and he smiled but it didn't reach his eyes.
CArlisle was the nest to speak up. "Jasper, Emmet, and Rosalie, I think you all should go hunting. Us having Bella in the house is going to be...different." Rosalie, Jasper, and Emmet got up and left the room. "Bella you've had a rough day today. you should get some sleep."
I didn't relieze how tired really I was. I deceided to take Carlisle's advice."Ok," Edward grabbed me up in his arms and took me to his room. Once we got there he layed me down on his couch. He then sat down on the floor next to me. I turned my head and looked into his eyes. They were so sad, so pained.
"Edward what's wrong?"
"Nothing, you just need to get some sleep." I was too tired to argue, but in the morning I would try my hardest to find out what was wrong. I sighed. He smiled at me. "Good night Bella, I love you."
"I love you too Edward." My eyes started to get heavy and before I knew it I was falling into another nightmare.
