Emmett slid his arms around his wife and placed his palms on her three month pregnant stomach. Rosalie moaned, relaxing into his warm, strong chest. "We will always be happy together." He whispered into her ear. She smiled, sliding her hands over his.
"Of course. I wouldn't have it any other way."
"And we know you always get what you want." They laughed together. Jasper walked into the room knowing they were there. He was looking for them, and he had some horrible news to pass on. Rosalie sat up and waited, she knew her brother, and she always knew when he was depressed, sad.
“Hey guys.” He said, sitting on the edge of the sofa. Rosalie reached out and took his hand.
“What’s wrong, Jasper?” She asked steadily. Jasper smirked sadly, and looked his sister in the eyes. His blue eyes looked stricken in a sense, Emmett noticed.
“I just got back from the hospital, the surgery has taken longer than they thought.” He turned away and curled his hands in his lap, staring at the floor between his feet. He had become good friends with Bella, and he felt pain at the expense of Edward, his best and closest friend.
“We were just planning on going up there. Is the surgery still going on?” Emmett tried his best to sound comforting, he was hurting as well. Jasper shook his head, thinking within himself.
“Yeah. Uh.. They were finishing up as I left. She’s gotta be in recovery now. I just came to tell you guys.” Jasper swallowed and stood up. “I’ve got to get back to Alice.”
“Wait. We’re coming.” Rosalie said, taking her husbands hand and standing up. “Just let me get my coat.”
“Where’s the blue one?”
A small pale hand reaches out into the small pile of building blocks on the table. “Here.”
“Yes” is followed by a smile of accomplishment on small pink lips. “And the yellow one?” That same hand reaches again, hesitates over the green one and then picks up the correct block. Anna holds it out to her father. “Yes, baby.” He whispers. Anna smiles again. Edward picks her up and she sits facing him on her lap. Her arms wrap around his neck, he kisses her forehead, and they sit there in the confines of hushed voices, covered pain, and ringing telephones.
When your desperate for something to prove
Just got a little further to fall….
Just got a little further to fall.
Today I heard that someone left this earth
With no more.. Here.
Today I heard that someone just got up and left us by ourselves
All alone on the ground
Today is, Today is, Today is quiet in my town
And I wish that I was flying somewhere.. Tonight in silence two lovers fight.. and one is empty and at least one of them is right
Today is today is today is quiet in my town
Today is oh today is today is quiet in my town
It’s too quiet.. It’s too quiet
“How about this one, hmm?” She twirls around and he pearl white silk makes waves as she moves. His eyes roam from the dress, over her waist and to her face.
“I liked the black one.” He clears his throat. She laughs, a song to his ears. A playful smile falls upon her face.
“That’s because it has the lowest cleavage.” She shoots at him, putting her hand on her waist. “Well? What are you going to say?” She begins again when all he does is stare. His eyes narrow and he takes a step forward.
“I don’t know. I do like the black one. But, we don’t have to go if you’d rather.. Do something else.” He places his fingers over hers on her waist. She smiles again.
“And miss out on a wedding?” She walks back into the closest and he follows. “Besides you can’t wear black to a wedding. If she only had bridesmaids, I wouldn’t have to pick.” She pulls the dress over her head and turns back around and meets him face to face, barely and inch apart. He brings his hands up her back.
“Well, We’ve got time enough to do what I want to do, and make it to the wedding.” He pulls her closer up against him. She moans in pleasure.
“And the dress?” She whispers. Edward brings his lips to her ear.
“Where the one you just had on.”
“Uh huh. Did I ever tell you your body looks just as good as it did in high school? I want you Isabella Cullen.”
“Well then take me. What are you waiting for?” Bella whispers into his shoulder. Edward growls and picks her up, dropping her on the bed as she releases another round of laughter.
Edwards hands are warm as he wipes them down his face. He hasn’t slept in over 72 hours. Even before he brought Bella here, he couldn’t sleep while her frail, bruised form lay beside him. He couldn’t sleep when he had no idea if he would ever look into her vividly beautiful eyes again. He couldn’t sleep when he could be the only one in this bed next time he lay there. Because if Bella did come out of it, how did he know she was not going to keep her promise of leaving him.
Edwards face contorted in pain at the very idea. Angry tears fell down his face. He pulled at the hair on top of his head. He couldn’t take it anymore! What was taking them so long? His breathing came out in huffs.
“Hi”, he whispered he looked up and saw his son looking up at him. He ruffled Henry’s hair and tried his best to smile down at him.
“Mr. Cullen?” A professional voice asked. Edward looked up, swallowed, and stood on his feet.
“Yes? What happened?” He was anxious now.
“Could you come with me for a second.” The doctor held his clipboard tight to his chest and motioned for Edward to follow. Edward picked up Henry and sat him down in his previously occupied chair. He looked at Alice who was sitting beside him, waking up from a restless sleep. He looked at his father, who stood behind the other doctor. Nobody said anything to him. Then he went after the doctor and found out the reason for his death or life.
