Charlie's POV

It as a long day at work today. Not too busy, just an occasional call, but for some reason, I had an overwhelming sense to come home.

When I did get home, I found Bella sitting in the living room. Her legs were pulled up to her chest and her head was buried in her hands. Alice was with her as well.

"Hey Alice. What's new in your world?"

"Uh, call me later, okay, Bella?"

"Yeah," Bella said. It sounded like she was crying.

Alice left without saying a word to me, which is odd because she's usually so vocal. I went into the kitchen to put my gear away and noticed dinner hadn't been started. This isn't typical Bella when she's not working. I walked back into the living room and sat in my chair.

"How was school, Bell?"

She didn't answer me. She didn't move. Something was wrong. First off, Edward wasn't here. They're usually attached at the hip. Second, if something was bothering her, she'd be crying up in her room, not down here for me to see. I got up and sat next to her.

"Bells? What's wrong? Is it Renee?"

"No, it's not Renee," she finally said.

"What is it? You can tell me."

"You're going to be mad."

"No I won't. Did you fail a test or something?"

"No."

"Did you and Edward break up?"

She didn't answer me, but I could tell her crying was heavier now.

"Did something happen?"

"Yeah."

"Did he cheat on you?"

"No. I...I'm pregnant, Dad."

Pregnant? My Bella...pregnant? This couldn't be happening. Where's Edward? Why isn't he here?

"Oh," I said.

I didn't know what else to say at that moment. What else could I say? It was obvious she's hurting, and I can't fix it.

"Does Edward know?"

"Yeah. I told him today."

"What did he say?"

"He left. He doesn't want me anymore dad. What am I going to do?"

I grabbed Bella and and pulled her out to my cruiser.

"Dad! What are you doing!?"

I didn't answer her. I wasn't going to let Bella go through this by herself. We drove in silence over to the Cullen house. Carlisle answered the door.

"Charlie. What can i do for you?"

"Where is Edward?" I asked.

"Inside. Why?"

"Has he told you?"

"Told me what?"

Bella now joined me at the door.

"Can we come in? I think we all need to have a sit down."

"Sure."

Bella and I walked in and joined the rest of the Cullens in the living room. The minute Bella saw Edward, she turned to walk out the door, but I caught her arm and pulled her back. Edward looked just as uncomfortable.

"What's this all about, Charlie?" Carlisle asked.

"I think Bella has something to say."

"I can't," she said.

"Yes you can."

Bella took a deep breath, looked at me, then Alice, then Edward.

"I'm pregnant."

"What!?" Carlisle yelled.

"Are you sure," Esme calmly asked.

"She's already been to the doctor," Alice said.

"Edward, what do you have to say for yourself?" Carlisle asked.

Everyone was quiet as we waited for Edward to say something. Five minutes passed and he still didn't say anything. Instead he looked at the floor.

"He said he didn't want me," Bella cried. "He said I just ruined his life."

Alice sat next to Bella and put her arms around her, as did Esme.

"Edward," Carlisle said.

"What do you want me to say?" he finally said.

"That you'll be there! That you'll support her!" I yelled.

"How far along are you, dear?" Esme asked.

"Sixteen weeks."

"Ha! We weren't together then!" Edward said.

"Yes we were! We drove to Seattle that weekend!"

"Uh no. I was in Chicago, remember? That's about the time you were messing around with James."

"I never did anything with James!"

"Sure you didn't. That guy's wanted you from the minute he saw you."

"But I only want you!"

"How you could do this?" Edward asked.

"How could I? If I remember correctly, you were there too."

"Why is it that you're just telling me now? Shouldn't you have noticed before?"

"I did notice. I just wanted to make sure."

"Make sure it wasn't his."

"That's enough!" Carlisle shouted. "Who all knows about this?"

"Just us. Bella hasn't told anyone," Alice said.

"And it will stay that way. There's no way you're going to tell everyone that it belongs to me."

"It? Try them."

"What?" I asked.

"The doctor said I was carrying twins. He heard two distinct heartbeats other than mine."

"Well this just keeps getting better and better," Edward said.

With that Bella got up and walked out the front door with Alice and Esme behind her. I stood there, just watching the Cullen's. Carlisle was standing by the large living room window; Edward was sitting on the couch; and his brothers, Emmett and Jasper were sitting on the stairs, shaking their heads. Edward's sister, Rosalie was no where to be found.

"So? What do you plan to do, Edward?" I asked.

"I don't know."

"Better figure it out quick. But I am warning you, if you so much as tarnish her name or do anything to bring her more grief, I will kill you."

"Sure you will," Edward said smugly.

"Do not test me, boy."

Bella's POV

The next day would prove to be disastrous. I'm sure people would find out about me and Edward. Jessica would probably be ecstatic. She's always wanted him. Charlie called Renee last night and told her. She flipped out of course and wanted to come and get me, but Charlie told her he would figure things out. Everything was starting to crumble around me. The man I loved more than anything didn't want me; Charlie looked at me with sad, disappointed eyes, but said he wasn't mad at me; Renee wouldn't speak to me period; and Alice kept saying things would work out. But how could they? I didn't want to do this alone, yet there seemed to be no hope that Edward would be by my side.

As I grabbed my backpack and keys for the truck, Charlie stopped me.

"Honey, I know today is going to be hard. If you need me, just call. I'll come and get you, even if it's ten minutes after you get there."

"Thanks, Dad. I'm sure I'll be fine."

Charlie gave me a kiss on the cheek and ran back out to his cruiser, which was already running. I stood there for a moment and waited until he was gone before I went outside. Thank god it wasn't raining today. I climbed into my truck, put the key in the ignition and turned it. Nothing. I tried it again. Again, nothing happened.

Looks like you're walking, I thought to myself.

When I finally arrived at school, I had roughly two minutes before the bell rang. I darted to my locker, grabbed my book and ran to my first class. Edward was there, only not in his usual seat. Today he sat next to Tanya, a girl I despised more than Jessica. When Edward noticed me, he kissed Tanya on the cheek.

"Oh Edward, you're so sweet," she said while looking at me.

I took my usual seat and prayed today would go by fast. It took every ounce of courage I had to keep me from looking and talking to Edward. I couldn't even talk to Alice. My morning sickness coupled with anxiety was not a good thing. I ended up spending my lunch hour in the bathroom. I wasn't hiding - not completely - but I did throw up a few times from the smell of the food. I heard the bathroom door open.

"Did you hear about Edward and Bella?" I recognized the voice as Jessica.

"Yeah. I heard they broke up. How sad," Angela said.

"I heard she's pregnant and doesn't know how's it is."

"What do you mean," Angela asked.

"You remember when Edward was gone a few weeks ago? Well I heard she was dating some other guy on the side and now she doesn't know who the father is."

The door opened again, but I didn't hear any footsteps.

"What did Edward say?"

"He dumped her right on the spot!" Jessica laughed.

"Shut your mouth!" another voice said. It was Alice. "You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about!"

Angela and Jessica hurried out of the bathroom. A second later there was a light tap on my bathroom stall door.

"Go away," I said.

"Bella, please? You haven't talked to me all day."

"He already has another girlfriend!" I cried.

"No, they're not dating. I would know."

"But he kissed her right in front of me."

"Bella, please, open the door."

I sat there for a moment, then walked out. She immediately put her arms around me and let me cry. Out of all the Cullen's, she was the only one who still talked to me.

"What am I going to do?"

"You are going to wash your face, walk out of here with your head up and not let him know he's getting to you. And, you're coming over tonight too."

"Alice I really don't want too."

"Oh relax, Edward won't be there. He's with Carlisle doing something. I'll have you out of the house before he comes back."

"Fine," I said in defeat.

I splashed some water on my face, grabbed a towel, and walked out with Alice. People looked at me, and I wasn't sure if it was out of sympathy or if they were just curious. Either way, I didn't want the attention. In Biology, Edward sat next to me, but didn't look or talk to me. Inside I was crumbling. How would I get through these next 26 weeks without him? How was I going to tell Renee? I wanted to crawl into a hole and disappear.
