He and Bella have come to an unspoken agreement:don't talk to me and I won't talk to you.Hate is always the feelings that arise. With one night together, Bella becomes pregnant. What will happen? Will they find away to love one another? There's always a sneak peek at my next chapter on my site.
So here it is. A brand new story. I just need a little input from you, my fabulous readers and reviewers. While you read this story, think of what I should do to make it better. I mean I have a vague outline, but it is still changeable. I’ve changed the Bella character a bit, but she hasn’t changed in essence. Does that sound cheesy? It probably does.
To all my regulars… I know there are some of you. I want you to know that this story will not disappoint. If it does, please tell me. I’m not afraid of a bit of flames. As long as they’re matches and not torches.
To new comers…. I hope you enjoy my writing techniques. If you like this story, do not be afraid to go and read my other ones. I just finished Edward and Isabella. And Practice makes perfect, so this story might be better…. READ ON MAN!

As I lay on my bed, I fingered the ring around my neck. It was nice. And that meant that it cost a lot. Well, a diamond was a girls weakness. And this was a sapphire. I sighed and turned onto my side with a huff. That was a bad thing when you were six months pregnant. You could never get comfortable. Just then one of them kicked, and I smiled. I rubbed my belly slowly and I could feel them moving around. It was amazing the amount of unconditional love I could feel for these two babies. I couldn't have been able to give them up.
Edward liked to sing to them. I thought it was the corniest thing in the world, but he did have an amazing voice. And of course the babies reacted with happy somersaults. Whenever they would move, Edward would place his lips against my belly, or his ear, and just stay there-- for hours sometimes. It amazed me.
I was beginning to doubt my own thoughts on love. Surely if I could love these babies with all my heart, then I could love Edward with all my soul.
"The thing is... people are starting to stare." I whispered to Edward. This was one of the first times that Edward and I had truly been alone. It was night time and we were in my living room.
"Then don't go back to school." Edward whispered back, rubbing my back as he did so. He pulled me closer into his arms and rested his head on my shoulder. I curled my fingers through his hair and we sat there. A few minutes later, I finally answered him.
"People would start to talk..."
"They're already talking." Edward slid his cheek down my neck and against my chest.
"I know.. but." I started. Edward took a hold of my hand and started rubbing my fingers. He brought them to his lips.
"I'll talk to my dad and see what he thinks, okay?" He spoke clearly, sitting up and looking me in the eye. I took in a breath.
"He might suggest it actually." He said again, curling a strand of my hair around his finger. "You are getting big." He placed his other hand on my belly. I put my hand over his. "Oh! There goes my son again. He's fiesty." Edward laughed. I smiled.
"You think there's a boy in there?"
"Atleast one. Come on, a girl couldn't kick that hard." He kissed my nose. I rolled my eyes. "Not that a little girl wouldn't be perfect either. Especially if she looked like you." I smiled sheepishly. I leaned my back into his chest, and he wrapped both his arm around me, placing them on my belly.
"And what would you name her?" I asked after a moment. Edward kissed my neck.
"Let me think..." He whispered slowly. "Maybe something thats no so popular."
"Yes. Like Ethadora or Florentina."
"I'm not naming my daughter Ethadora." I said. Edward laughed.
"So you think there's a girl in there?"
"I don't know." I closed my eyes. And Edward began humming to me. It didn't take me long to fall asleep.
Edward came to pick me up a few days later. Time for another check up. Edward was acting all gentleman as he walked me to the car, opening the door for me and such. I looked up the the window of my house. My dad was there watching. He waved when he saw me. I smiled and waved back. He wanted to come, but knew that this was something I needed to do alone. I had plans on surprising him.
When we got to Carlisle's office, he was waiting for us with a smile.
"Hey kids." He walked over.
After the ultrasound was started, Edward leaned his chin on my shoulder. It was amazing the differences that could happen between last month and this. I could actually see shapes. Human shapes. Dr. Cullen frowned a few times though.
After we had finished, Dr. Cullen pulled a chair up the the table where I sat. He looked up at me. Slowly, he rubbed his forehead.
"Anything wrong with me?" I smiled. He laughed.
"You're as healthy as any small-framed 18-year old pregnant girl with twins can be." I watched him critically. He sighed. "As of now, things look okay, but we may see a few problems near the end. I may have to put you on bed rest if you get too big." He placed a hand on either side of my six months of belly. "You're already pretty big."
I smiled. "My Dad won't let me go to school, and he's acting all nurse around me."
"I guess my pep-talk with him worked." He grinned and stood up, walking to the table and grabbing my file. So Carlisle had talked to my Dad. Interesting.
He looked at Edward and then back at me. "So, do you want to know the sexes of the babies?"
" So, I'm thinking of throwing you a baby shower!" Alice said when I opened the door the next morning. I looked over my shoulder for a second, and then quickly looked back. "Oh My God. You look so. big." Alice came forward and grabbed my belly. "I haven't seen you in ages."
"Um... Alice... I.." I stuttered.
"Bella? Whose there? Is it Marcus? If it's Marcus, tell him I need--" My dad came up behind me and took in Alice. "Well hello there." He smiled. Oh Crap.
"Hi!" Alice laughed, letting go of me and shaking his hand. "I'm Alice, Edward's sister." My dad's voice was low when he answered.
"Yea." Alice caught on a bit. "I came to see Bella. I haven't seen her in a while. I missed her."
"Your friends with my Bells?"
"Only the best! She didn't even mention me.?" She looked at me with a goofy grin. I took a breath.
"She doesn't mention very many of her friends.. Although I ask to meet them..." He looked at me too.
"What?" I sighed. Alice smiled.
"How about you help me plan a baby shower? Then we can talk." Alice asked.
"I'd like that." Charlie said sincerely. I didn't know what to say. Alice grinned and bounced past me and into the house, leaving me to close the door behind her.
"Tell us!" Edward said impatiently after get the thumbs up from me. We both watched Carlisle expectantly.
"Well..." He smiled as we groaned. "You're having one of each!"
