I looked at her, raising one eyebrow. It couldn’t be good. We had just finished up planning the wedding, now only three short months away. We hadn’t even talked about anything serious for almost a week.
"It’s Renee. She’s um...um...she’s..." Alice was at a lost for words. "Bella, how do you feel about...being a...big sister?"
I dropped my book. She was joking. She had to be joking. "Alice, what’s going on. This isn’t funny."
"It’s not a joke, Bella. Renee is four months pregnant. I called to talk to her doctors and she won’t be able to fly when it’s time for the wedding. I don’t know what we’re going to do. Your mom has to be there! What are we going to do?"
"When are we going back?" I knew it had to be soon. I was getting better about everything. I could stand the scent of blood for longer periods of time now, and my eyes were turning a reddish brown.
"We’re going back two weeks before the wedding. Esme and myself are going to be taking care of the last details."
"Then someone can drive Renee up to Forks for the wedding. It’s a long drive but we can do it. Not like anyone here likes to do the speed limit. I bet we could make the drive in a little over a night."
"I never thought I would hear you saying that we should actually break the speed limit for once. I’ve got to tell Edward about that."
"The only question is who will go and get them. We can’t send Edward, you know Renee. Something would go wrong if he went. You need to be there to deal with the wedding with Esme, so she’s out. What about Carlisle, he could do it?"
"No. Carlisle is not going to be there at the same time as us. He has to go to New York and pick something up. He’ll be there a few days before the wedding. Sorry."
"Not Jasper, that would be too tempting." I knew now what Jasper went through every single day of his life. "Rosalie? Wait, no." It might make Rosalie go into one of her moods, my mother was having something she couldn’t. "Emmett?"
"Going with Carlisle. To keep him out of our hair while we put everything together."
"Do you think I could do it?" I didn’t know if I could deal with that.
Alice looked at me like I was crazy. "No, Bella. That would be pushing yourself too much. We don’t want to tempt fate." She stopped, getting a dazed look. "No, it could work. You don’t want to kill your mother. Phil won’t be a problem. I think you could do it. I think it would work. Let’s not tell Edward about it. He might freak."
"He just might. What all did you find out from Renee’s doctor?" I didn’t want to know how she had gotten into the files.
"Well, you are getting two little siblings. Renee, refuses to find out the sex of them, so the doctor wouldn’t tell me. They’re going to be big healthy babies. I can’t wait for them to be born. I’m going to spoil them. We’ll have to keep in touch with them. What would they think if they’re big sister never even calls them?"
"Alice, I thought the wedding was how I was going to break all my ties to my family. After this we’re going to college." That was a joke. "We won’t ever be able to come home because we’ll be so busy. Remember?"
"I know but, their babies! Don’t you want to spoil them rotten?"
"You’ve already stated haven’t you! What did you do?" I jumped on her, pinning her to the bed. "Tell me." She couldn’t move beneath me.
"I might have sent a few presents, since you weren’t there for the baby shower."
"What did you send?"
"A few things. Nothing too big."
"A crib. I might have also sent a little going out set, like a stroller and dipper bad and a few other things. I might have sent a gift card to a baby store in Florida."
I got off her, and put my head in my hands. "Alice! Why?"
"Because you can! You can spend money on them! There’s nothing wrong with it! Common you’re going to be wearing a ten thousand dollar dress! The dress you bought Renee to wear was around five thousand. We need to get her a new dress. We’ll go out tonight."
"Alice, you didn’t tell me that we spent fifteen thousand dollars on two dresses!"
"It’s nothing, Bella. Only the best for a Cullen."
"I’m going to kill you." I laid back on the bed, holding back a frustrated scream.
Alice got up. "Good luck with that."
I no longer wanted the wedding. Edward did though and that was the only reason I was still doing this. Well that and he still refused to give into my one real demand!
"It’s almost over. It’s almost over. It’s almost over." I chanted over and over again, turning to look at my dress. We weren’t even keeping it a secret this time. It was hanging in the bedroom, screaming for Edward to look at it, and he had.
I laid there thinking about everything going strange in my life.
I was a vampire.
I was about to try and get married again.
My mother was about to have not one baby but two!
I was planning my wedding half way around the world.
I felt like my life was really starting to go wrong.
‘Bella, do you want to talk about it?’ Edward’s voice ghosted over me, making me sink further into the soft mattress. I hadn’t even heard him enter the room.
"No. Will you hold me?" I looked at him, sticking my bottom lip out.
He sighed and sat next to me, pulling me into his arms. I laid my head on his chest, breathing in his scent. I calmed down and started to look at things in a positive way. I guess things weren’t going to bad. The Volturi had yet to kill me, that was a good thing.
"Do we have to get married?" It was more trouble than it was worth. Besides, I was sure I could wear Edward down about getting my demand. He couldn’t resist me for eternity, could he?
"Not if you really don’t want to, then no." I had not be expecting that as a response.
I sat up, looking up into his light brown eyes. "Who are you and what have you done with Edward Cullen?"
He laughed and kissed me. "I know a wedding isn’t what you wanted, that’s why. It’s your choice. You’ll have to be the one to tell Alice and the others."
"No, we’ll have the wedding." I wasn’t telling Alice that I wasn’t going to get married. I remembered the time I had almost gone to Vegas to get married, she had given me that look. I wasn’t going to look at that again.
"That’s what I thought." Edward murmured, nuzzling my neck.
I hit him on the arm. "Oh, shut up!"
