I don't know how long I cried for on that cold bathroom floor. I know it was a long time though. Long enough for the day to end and Charlie to come and find me.
"Bella, what the heck's wrong with you?" he shouted.
And then I told him. I just let it all out. I told him that I was pregnant, and that Edward wanted to keep it and how I really wasn't ready. And I felt so much better that I got that out of the way, even if Charlie was going to go balistic.
"Oh, Bella," he said. He picked me up off the floor and helped me walk to my room where he covered me up under the blankets.
"Daddy, I'm so sorry. I really messed up, I'm sorry," I mumbled, tears still flowing.
"We can talk about this in the morning, okay? You just sleep," he said, kissed my forehead, and shut the door behind him.
I didn't know what morning would bring, but I wasn't really worried about Charlie. It was Eward I was concerned about. I've never hurt him before in my life, I can't believe I said those things to him. I will never forgive myself for that.
Exhausted from this terrible day, I cried myself to sleep.
It was early when I woke up. The sun wasn't up, but that doesn't mean much in Forks. I could hear birds chirping and the soft sound of light rain hitting the treetops. It was peaceful this morning, usually the rain bothers me.
I got up from my bed and sighed. Edward wasn't there. Ever since we started dating, he's always been by my side when I woke up. Thinking of this made me want to cry, so I quickly grabbed my things and went to take a shower. The warm water felt good running down my body, calming me. I went downstairs to make myself some breakfast. It was Saturday; I wonder if Charlie went fishing?
I sat at the table, wondering what I should do today. I really ought to call Edward and sort this out. I can't just raise a baby alone, and I really felt terrible for what I said.
I thought for a long time, then decided to call Alice and see if she would come over. She really was my best friend and would help me out; at least, I sure hoped she would.
Emmett answered on the second ring.
"Hey Emmett, it's me, Bella," I said.
"Oh hey Bella! Hold on, I'll get Edward..." I could hear him moving.
"No, Emmett, can I talk to Alice?" I asked quickly.
"Um, yeah. Is something wrong?"
"No, no, everything's fine. I just want to see if Alice wanted to come over today. You know, a little girl bonding," I winced at my lie. It didn't sound like me at all.
"Here, Alice, Bella wants to talk to you," Emmett said to her, then handed over the phone.
"Hey Bella! What's up?" Alice asked me happily.
"Oh nothing really. Listen, I'm having a...uh...crisis, and I was wondering if you could come over."
"Sure! I'd be happy to! I'll be there in 10 minutes," she said, and hung up the phone. I did a little mindless cleaning while waiting for her.
I was in the middle of doing a load of laundry when I heard the doorbell ring. "Come in!" I yelled over the running water.
She was beside me in no time. I let out a shriek of suprise. "Alice, don't sneak up on me like that!" I said, breathing deeply, trying to calm my heart rate.
"Sorry! I'm just so excited to hear this news!"
I finished up the darks and we went into the living room to talk.
"Okay, first off, I need you to promise me, promise, that you won't tell a soul about this."
"Swear on my life," Alice vowed.
"Here goes nothing," I muttered. "Alice, I'm pregnant."
"I'm going to be an auntie!" she screamed, absolutely delighted. "Ooo, we can make the nursery Winnie the Pooh. Oh, or maybe butterflies if it's a girl..." she trailed off, deep in thought. Then her face got scrunched up and she looked confused. "Wait, it is Edward's baby, right?"
"Of course it's Edward's baby," I said quietly.
"Well that's great!" she said, her worry lines going away instantly. "But I'm not seeing the crisis here. Well, other than you two are only 18..."
"Alice, I told him I wasn't keeping it. That I was getting rid of it. And he left," I whispered, close to crying.
"And I need to talk to him, but I'm afraid he doesn't want to talk to me."
"Bella, you know you won't be able to kill this child. I know you well, you wouldn't do something like that. And I think deep, deep down, Edward knows that too. I'll talk to him. Everything will be okay Bella," Alice smiled at me.
"Thanks Alice. You really are like a sister to me," I said, leaning over to hug her.
"Anything for you and my little niece or nephew!" she said brightly.
At least somebody's excited.
