"Bella, I told you, it's over. I'm leaving you. I don't want you, or this baby that you think is mine. Goodbye, Bella."

I shot straight up in bed, crying and gasping for air. Was that just a dream? Oh thank God.

I leaned over the bed to check what time it was. 5:34 A.M. I sighed and crawled out of bed, knowing I wasn't going to get any more sleep after that nightmare. I rummaged through my closet to find something to wear. I dwelled on the fact that I was going to get bigger real soon and that Alice was going to feel the need to take me maternity clothes shopping and I wouldn't be able to say no to her. She would literally drag me if that's what it took. I groaned inwardly and grabbed a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt, not feeling like trying today. Alice will kill me.

Before I stepped into the shower, I looked at myself in the mirror. There was a little bump, not too noticable, but there if you looked close enough. I gently rubbed my hand over it, feeling the start of mine and Edward's child growing within me. I smiled a bit at that thought, Edward and I's baby.

As soon as I was showered and ate breakfast, I went to retrieve my backpack from my room. I was quietly humming to myself when I heard an all too familiar chuckle. I jumped when I noticed Edward sitting in the rocking chair in the corner of my room.

"There's my beautiful lady," he smiled, getting up to embrace me.

"You scared me," I muttered, trying to calm my beating heart.

He just gave me that gorgeous crooked grin and lightly kissed my lips before asking me if I wanted a ride, to which I nodded, not really knowing if I could speak, but not wanting to try for fear of embarrassing myself.

We walked hand in hand down the stairs-which I am happy to report I only fell once-and out to his Volvo where Alice was waiting.

"Bella! What on earth are you wearing?!" she shrieked as Edward helped me into the passenger seat-Alice was in the back.

"Alice, chill," I said.

"Fine, you can have a get out of jail free card for just this once! But you know, I've been meaning to tell you that we need to-"

I groaned loudly, knowing what she was going to say, what I was dreading. Edward laughed, also knowing what Alice was getting at, and took hold of my hand.

"Don't give me that Bella, this is important! You won't have anything to wear! You're going to get big, you know."

I rolled my eyes. "Thank you, Alice, that is exactly what I want to hear."

"Okay Alice, Bella promises to go shopping with you," Edward jumped in.

"Edward!" I shouted just as Alice yelled "Tonight!"

"Wait wait wait, Bella will go shopping with you sometime, I never said when. She won't need those clothes for a while yet, and besides, she's busy tonight," Edward told Alice while looking at her through the rearview mirror, then turned his head slightly to look at me. "And you, are beautiful, and you will be even when our baby makes room for himself inside of you," he grinned at me.

"I love you," I told him, leaning my head on his shoulder. We were almost to school when I remembered something. "Hey, what am I doing tonight?" I asked Edward.

"You have a date," he smiled mischieveously.

We pulled into the parking lot at the same time as our friends Rosalie and Jasper Hale, and Emmett, Edward's brother, was with them. Alice hopped out of the car and ran over to Jasper, who gave her a passionate kiss. Edward helped me out of the car and together we walked over to the other couples.

"Bella!" Emmett boomed, picking me up and giving me a bone-crushing hug.

Alice was the only other person, other than Charlie, that knew I was pregnant. So naturally, Emmett didn't know he could very possibly crush my baby. I panicked and kicked him in the sore spot.

"Ouch! Bella, God, what was that for?!" Emmett yelled, dropping me. Edward caught me and I blushed, my face turning a deep shade of red.

"Sorry Emmett! You okay?" I asked him.

"Fine," he gasped. "Just know that when Rose and I can't have kids, it's your fault."

"Sorry! I don't know what came over me," I said quietly.

Edward and Jasper were laughing the whole time. They started to calm down, but only a bit. "Bella, let's get to class," Edward said through gasps of breath.

"Emmett, you just got beat up by a girl!" Jasper, who is usually pretty quiet, laughed.

As Edward and I walked away, I heard Emmett yell, "Shut up Jasper, she didn't beat me up!" Edward was still chuckling as we reached History class.

"I'll see you in Biology," he told me while staring into my eyes, making me forget anything and anybody around us. "I love you," he said while stroking my cheek.

History was boring as ever, I was literally counting the minutes until I was in Biology, sitting next to Edward. I daydreamed about the baby, was it going to be a boy or a girl? What would we name him or her?

The loud shrill of the bell broke my trance and I quickly got up, gathered my things, and hurried to meet Edward.

Before I was stopped by none other than the one and only Mike Newton.

"Hey, Bella," he said shyly.

"Oh, hey Mike," I said, looking through the door of the classroom to see Edward already seated at our table, watching me intently.

"So Bella, I was wondering if..." I drowned out his voice and looked at Edward and mouthed "Help!" He nodded and got up from his chair.

"Bella?"

I snapped out of it and turned my attention back to Mike. "I'm sorry, what?"

"I said that a couple of us are going to the movies tonight, did you want to come?" he asked, looking hopeful.

As I was about to answer, I felt a pair of arms wrap around my waist. "Sorry, Mike, Bella's busy tonight. Maybe next time," Edward answered for me. Mike looked defeated and mumbled something I couldn't hear, and walked into the classroom. I turned around in Edward's arms and looked up at him.

"Thanks, my big, handsome, boyfriend," I grinned, standing on my tip-toes to kiss his cheek.

"No problem, my beautiful, irrisistable, girlfriend," he said back.

We were in the middle of a boring movie when I sent Edward a note in my sloppy handwritting.

So, where are you taking me tonight?

I'm not telling you, it's a suprise.

My shoulders slumped in defeat. We watched the rest of the movie and walked together silently to the cafeteria. Edward grabbed two slices of pizza and an apple, along with a water for me. I grumbled at him, reminding him that I need my caffine, but he told me that caffine wasn't good for babies. He smiled at me then and knew he had me.

"Hey Bella, we're playing a prank on Newton, wanna help?" Emmett asked me when Edward and I sat down at the table.

"After him hitting on Bella again today, I'm in," Edward chimed in. I shrugged and picked up a slice of pizza.

"Okay, here's what's going down..."
