At 6 months pregnant I really was showing. I’d taken to wearing large hoodies and baggy trousers to cover my ever growing stomach. I knew I was going to have to tell Charlie, but how and when I didn’t know.
It had to be soon or else he’d figure it out himself but how I was going to do it was beyond me. I could just see Charlie’s face now when I told him “Eh yeh, Dad I have something to tell you, I’m pregnant and I’m 99% sure it’s Edwards”
Well that would go over like a ton of freakin bricks!
He’d have a heart attack then and there and afterwards he’s probably disown me. No, I was really going to have to think this one over. Not only would Charlie be angry that I was pregnant but for it to be Edward’s I was sure would push him over the edge, he’d go and track Edward down and then tear him to shreds.
Not something I wanted to happen for obvious reasons. The hole in my chest cut a little deeper at the mention of Edward. I was having his child (like I said I was 99% sure of that), our child. Not that he cared or knew about it I was sure. After all he didn’t love me anymore; tears escaped my eyes at the thought.
I lay down on my bed with both my hands placed lightly on my growing stomach. I felt the baby kick a little inside and I smiled sadly, wishing I had Edward with me to experience this.
I didn’t want to dwell on thoughts like that though; it would only make me cry harder. I patted my stomach and whispered softly to my child inside-
“One day, I hope you love someone as much as I loved your father, I hope one day you’ll meet him, though I doubt it. He was so beautiful and kind and everything I could ever want. I loved him so much. I hope you experience that kind of love one day”
“I hope so too, love like that never ends”
This voice was not my own, instead it came from a voice in the corner, beside my window.
A voice that I had heard so many times whisper my name softly in my ear, had taken care of me when I need it, I would follow that voice to the ends of the Earth.
It was Edward.
I whipped my head around to look at him, convinced I had imagined it all in my head. I often wished I could hear his voice and this was just one of my many little fantasies deciding to make an appearance. He spoke again-
“Bella, I’m sorry I didn’t mean to scare you but just hear me out ok, please?”
No he was really here…or was he, I was still confused. I thrust back my covers and stumbled out of bed. My eyes wide and shocked I pushed back against the wall as he took a step towards me.
“Edward??” I asked, surprised that I still had a voice.
“Yes Bella I’m here”
That’s when reality hit me hard. Edward was here, in my room, talking to me. I collapsed onto the floor as sobs shook my entire body. Edward rushed over and wrapped me in his embrace.
“Shh Bella, it’s alright, I’m here, everything’s alright.” His comforting words settled me but not much.
I had no response. I was here in his arms and that’s al I cared about for the moment.
As my sobs slowly disappeared, I felt Edward pick me up and lay me on my bed but he stayed with his arms firmly around me and that’s all I wanted.
“Edward” I whispered, sure that he would hear me.
“Why are you here?”
He looked down at me with an expression of sadness on his face.
“Bella please listen to me and hear me out ok? I’m here because I love you”
I opened my mouth to say something but he continued on.
“I know that you don’t believe me but I do, I love you more than anything in the world, you are my world, my life, my everything”
I interrupted him here before he could continue.
“Edward you left, you said you didn’t love me and now you say you do! I’m confused?!”
“Bella, I’m a good liar, I have to be. When I told you I didn’t love you that day in the woods I didn’t mean any of it, I did it because I thought it was best for you. After what happened at your birthday I told myself it was my fault that it happened and I promised myself that I would no longer stay around where I could here you. I didn’t know how hard it would be though.
I knew that I had to convince you that I didn’t love you, but for you to believe me so easily was heart wrenching, I couldn’t believe that I had caused you pain so I left quickly .
I never knew the pain I would end up causing myself, I also never knew about the new addition to your family until Alice saw it” he smiled down at my bump as he said it.
At this I started crying again.
