He must have read his mind, because in a flash he was next to me.
“Bella…” he breathed. I could smell his sweet scent wafting around me as he breathed in and out.
“Edward.” I squeaked. That must be attractive, I thought sarcastically.
In a moment he was on his knees, arms wrapped around my waist. “Bella, my love, I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean anything; I’ve missed you so much! Please, Bella, love, I love you, I miss you! Please take me back?” he was on his knees begging me to take him back. How could I say no?
“You look pathetic.” Ruby spat at him.
“And you are?” he growled.
“Wouldn’t you like to know?” Ruby murmured. He got off the floor and stood over her.
“Look, I don’t know who you think you are, but this is my house and I would just like to point out that you are being incredibly rude.” He hissed.
“Oh, relax,” she rolled her eyes. “I was just pointing out that you look pathetic, on you knees, begging? Begging my mother, might I add?”Ruby asked, raising one perfectly arched eyebrow.
He looked stunned. “Y-you’re married?” he stuttered.
“No, no! I’m, not m-married! I w-was, but…he left.” I gasped quietly.
Before I knew it, I was being swept up in his arms. His lips were crushing mine in an oh so pleasant way. I couldn’t help but sigh. I hadn’t been kissed like this in years.
“Get a fucking room.” I heard Ruby mutter.
I pulled away when my motherly instincts took over. “Language…” I warned her. She rolled her eyes, and Kara giggled almost silently.
“Wait! I’m so lost!” Rosalie yelled.
“Bella, why don’t you tell them your story?” Alice asked. I sighed. This would be along night.
“Alright. When Edward…left, I was kinda depressed. I met this guy, and he helped me through it. Anyway, we eloped when I found out I was pregnant with Ruby, when I was eighteen. We had Ruby and everything was good…for twelve years. He walked out on us when Ruby was twelve. We haven’t heard from him since. The only thing he left was some pictures and his old leather jacket,” I gestured to Ruby’s coat. “I went bankrupted about two years after and needed some money, so I married…Mike Newton.”
I heard gasps all around the room. I continued. “He was nice for about two months, and then…that’s when the abuse started. Every night, some nights worse then others. Depended on how drunk he was. Anyway, I divorced him and then he decides to convince the police that I’m an unfit mother, to get to Ruby. Were so lucky that Angela Weber saw the case and helped me out. She was our judge. Mike is still out to convince the world I’m an unfit mother, but he hasn’t been successful.
“I was walking home tonight; when I got the feeling someone was watching me. But I’ve been paranoid ever since the Mike thing, so I thought nothing of it. All of a sudden Alice grabs me from behind. She asks me to come and…well, here we are.” I finished. Esme and Jasper looked Sad. Carlisle looked sympathetic. Rosalie looked like she didn’t care. And Edward looked livid…
“Never should’ve left. Never, I’m an idiot…” he was muttering to himself. Of course everyone could here him. Even Ruby.
“Damn right you are.” She agreed.
“Roo!” Kara whispered, hitting her shoulder.
Edward glared at her. He turned to me and took my hands. “Bella, love, could you ever forgive me?” he asked.
I was hesitant. All of this had happened; I didn’t want anything to make it worse. But that’s what convinced me this was a good idea. What’s one more complication? “Edward.” I paused, building tension “You’re forgiven.”
He all but leaped into the air! He picked me up and spun me around like I was a feather or a pillow. A feather pillow.
I heard Ruby mumbling under her breathe as she stormed out of the house. I sighed hopped out of Edward’s arms. I went out after Ruby, but was stopped by Edward.
“That’s your daughter?” he asked, skeptically. I nodded. “She’s nothing like you.”
