Six Months Later:
I took off my pajama shirt and started walking toward my closet. I paused as I got to my mirror. It had been three months since I knew I was pregnant, and I had definitely started showing.
I placed my hand on the bump and sighed. No, I was not having second thoughts about deciding to keep the baby, I was just thinking. Thinking about what was going to happen when I told Charlie and how Sam and I were going to live. One of us would definitely have to get a job.
Knock, Knock, Knock.
I jumped, and yelled, “Hang on,” as I searched around my closet for a decent shirt. I found a clean, baggy shirt, and threw it on. Then, I slid on some crappy jeans, and headed down stairs to the door. I reached for the handle and threw it open enthusiastically. I smiled at my man, and leaned into him, feeling his warm arms surround me.
“My two babies,” he whispered in my ear. I smiled softly, and tilted my head up to let him kiss me. He kissed my lips hard, and then started pulling on my hand to lead me out. I grabbed my jacket quickly, and then shut the door, following him to his truck.
He helped me into the passenger side, and patted my stomach before going around to the driver’s side. I sighed and shook my head at him. He had been so… addicted to my stomach since I started growing that it was not even something I wanted to argue about.
We drove down to First Beach, basking in the silence of the trip. When we got there, Sam laid down a blanket and took off his t-shirt. I smiled and rubbed my hands over his muscular chest.
He pulled me down onto the blanket and wrapped his arms carefully around me.
“Stop that,” I giggled as I swatted Sam’s hand away from my stomach.
“I know,” he murmured. “I just cannot believe that our little baby is in there.”
“Well,” I started sarcastically. “You had better started believing it,” I huffed. Sam gave me a long, hard kiss on the lips. He pulled away and squirmed. I opened my eyes and turned my head to see what was making him uneasy: it was the rest of the pack.
I turned my head back to face him. “Are you sure they don’t know?”
“Almost positive,” he sighed. “They are getting a little suspicious about me being so against going to my wolf form; they know I love to.”
“I am sorry I made this so hard for you,” I said, feeling guilty.
He pulled me closer, his lips at my ear. “You never make anything harder. If anything, you only make my life easier.” I giggled like I a little girl, not that there is anything wrong with that.
“Hey, you two,” said Jared, coming up beside us, and sitting down on the end of the blanket. The rest of the pack followed suit, except Jacob who stayed standing.
I started pulling at the hem of my shirt nervously. I had started getting nervous whenever someone that did not know I was pregnant was around. I always had a feeling at the pit of my stomach that they were going to notice my stomach.
Sam saw and frowned, narrowing his eyes quickly. He pulled my fingers free of the hem of my shirt, and brought both of them up to his mouth.
“Ah-em.” Only Jacob would interrupt that.
“Yes, Jake?” I asked, forcefully turning my full attention on him.
“We,” he started, motioning to the rest of the pack and him, “need to talk to you and Sam about something kind of important.”
“Okay, go ahead,” I urged.
Jacob sighed and looked around at the rest of the boys as if asking them for help. They were avoiding meeting his gaze and Sam and mine. I looked around at them again and waited for one of them to begin explaining what was on their minds.
“What?” I repeated.
“Bella,” Jacob started, and then cut off quickly giving the boys an exasperated look, and then standing up and walking over to my side. I turned to face him and propped myself up on my elbow.
“Yes?” I questioned, unconsciously leaning closer to him.
He sighed and his eyes had a tint of sadness in them. I narrowed my eyes suspiciously. Jacob reached out with his hand and before I knew what he was doing, he had taken hold of the hem of my shirt, and lifted it so that my swollen stomach was exposed. He frowned as if he did not want it to be true.
“Why didn’t you tell us?” he spoke softly. “You two should know that you can come to us whenever you need something. Even something like this,” he said, gesturing toward my belly.
Sam’s Point of View:
I rapped my knuckles on Bella’s front door three times quickly. I stood there for a few moments and then heard her wonderful voice saying, “Hang on.” I smiled to myself and waited patiently until the door swung open.
“My two babies,” I murmured into her ear after I had gathered in my arms. She tilted her head up and was smiling. I pressed my lips down onto hers. I started pulling on her hand softly, and I saw her reach for her jacket. I heard the door click shut softly.
I helped her up into the passenger seat, and then patted her swollen belly quickly before walking around to the driver’s side. I drove us to First Beach, and when we got there, I laid down a blanket for us. I took off my shirt because I had no need for it and I noticed Bella smiling at me. She moved closer and rubbed her hands over my chest.
I pulled her down onto the blanket and then ever so carefully, I wrapped my arms around her swollen waist.
“Stop that.” Bella’s golden laughter echoed around me.
“I know,” I muttered. “I just cannot believe our little baby is in there.”
“Well,” she started, and I could tell she was being sarcastic. “You had better start believing it,” she huffed. I pressed my lips to her full lips, and kept them there for awhile. I suddenly pulled away and squirmed. I did not even have to see them; I knew they were coming.
Bella obviously noticed, and turned her head to see the pack walking in our direction. She turned back to me and her eyes were full of worry. “Are you sure they don’t know?” No, I wasn’t, but I was not going to let her know that.
“Almost positive,” I answered giving her a small kiss. “They are getting a little suspicious about me being so against going to my wolf form; they know I love to.”
“I am sorry I made this so hard for you,” she said.
I pulled her closer to me, making sure that my lips were at her ear. “You never make anything harder. If anything, you only make my life easier.” She giggled.
“Hey, you two,” said Jared, coming up beside us, and sitting down on the end of the blanket. The rest of the pack did as Jared did, except Jacob who stayed standing.
I noticed Bella fingering the hem of her shirt nervously. I pulled her hands away and brought them up to my mouth.
Someone cleared their throat, and I knew that it had been Jacob.
“Yes, Jake?” Bella asked, turning her head away from me once again. Jacob told us that the pack and he needed to talk to us.
“Okay,” Bella pressed. “Go ahead.”
Jacob sighed and looked around at the rest of the boys as if asking them for help. They were avoiding meeting his gaze and Bella and mine. I saw Bella look around at all of them, although, I remained my gaze full on Jacob.
“Bella,” Jacob started, and then cut off quickly giving the boys an exasperated look, and then standing up and walking over to my side. Bella turned to fully face him, and propped herself up on her elbow.
“Yes,” she prompted when he did not continue. I could not think of what was gnawing at the pack so much. Especially if it involved my Bella.
Jacob sighed heavily and his eyes had a tint of sadness in them. Jacob reached out with his hand and he took hold of the hem of Bella’s extra baggy shirt, and lifted it so that her swollen belly was exposed. He frowned and I knew he wished that it weren’t true and his eyes were just playing tricks on him.
“Why didn’t you tell us?” he spoke softly not meeting out gazes. “You two should know that you can come to us whenever you need something. Even something like this,” he said, gesturing toward Bella’s belly. (A/N—hee, hee! Bella’s Belly! sighs heavily Sorry, I found it funny.)
I could tell Bella was speechless from knowing that they knew, and I finally found my voice. “How did you guys find out?” I asked, my voice sounding raw.
“Well,” Embry began. “Bella’s clothes are not as baggy as you actually think. You can see her stomach a bunch of times. I mean, I was sure that you two of all people would notice that.” I sighed, but nodded, that was an issue that I had probably noticed and just thought nothing of it.
Bella’s head turned once again toward me. Her eyes were full and round and looked like a puppy dog’s pair of eyes. “Do you think that people at school might have noticed?” she asked nervously.
I started to shake my head but then said, “It is possible, Bella. I mean, if they noticed…” I gestured toward the pack, “then it is probable that someone else has noticed and not said anything to you.”
“We think that you need to tell someone,” Paul stated.
“Oh, really?” I said. “Who?”
“Charlie,” they all said together.
“Ch-Charlie?” Bella stuttered out. “But… why?”
“Well,” Jared started, “he is your father, isn’t he?”
Bella frowned and buried her face into my chest. I nodded and whispered to Bella, “You know what? I think they might be right. I think that it is about time we talk to Charlie. Soon enough, he’s going to be wondering why you are wearing all these baggy clothes. And, you are going to have to tell him before the baby is due, Sweetie.”
I felt her sigh into my bare chest, and then she nodded.
