I was excited to meet Bella. She made Edward happy, and that was all that counted. He was my son, and if she was good for him, we wouldn’t object.
I heard the car pull up. Carlisle and I looked at each other, looks of excitement and nervousness. I was more nervous than he was; he had already met Bella. I hoped she liked me.
Entering a house full of vampires was a crazy thing to do. And she had the nerve to do it anyway. She was brave, and I already loved her for that, that she didn’t consider us to be frightful.
Edward opened the door.
“Bella,” he said, “I would like you to meet my parents, Carlisle and Esme.” Carlisle shook her hand, and I did the same.
“We are so happy to meet you,” I said to her.
“Thanks, it’s great to be here.” she replied.
I looked at her carefully, watching how she responded to Edward. I understood why Edward loved her so. She was pretty, but I knew there had to be more to her than that.
He was careful around her, and the way he looked at her showed so much.
He watched her carefully and protectively. It was beautiful.
Alice and Jasper came down the stairs.
“Hello, Bella!” Alice said to her. And then she kissed her on the cheek. I was very alarmed, wondering in shock at how Bella could take that.
Edward and Carlisle were both alarmed as well.
“I never noticed, you do have a nice scent.” Alice said.
Bella was a little shocked.
Then I noticed her glancing at the piano.
“Do you play?” I asked her.
“No, my mother does.”
“I’m not surprised.”
We all looked at her, confused.
“Edward can do everything, right?”
And then Jasper started to laugh. I glared at him.
“Edward, I hope you haven’t been showing off,” I scolded him.
“Just a little,”
“Well, go on, play for her,”
“I thought you just said I was showing off,”
“There are exceptions,”
And then Edward started playing. It was beautiful, and my favorite.
“This is Esme’s favorite,” he told Bella.
We all left then.
“What do you think Carlisle?” I asked him.
“She’s wonderful. She’s absolutely wonderful.” he replied.
I turned toward Alice.
“What do you think you were doing out there? Did you see Bella’s face?” I asked her, shocked. She looked at me calmly.
“Esme, I already saw her coming into our family. We could already be considered sisters,” she said.
“Jasper, what do you think about Bella?”
Jasper was reluctant to answer.
“She OK, but her scent….it is nice. I see the attraction.” he murmured.
“Jasper, dear, she’s Edward’s. And biting her would make him snap your head off. And I prefer you with your head on. Just try to restrain yourself, for Edward’s sake.” Alice said.
I liked Bella, and I would love her in the family. I had never seen Edward that happy before. And at last I knew, Edward had found love.
