I couldn’t sleep that night. It was just weird, having the feeling that you’re safe. I haven’t felt like this in forever. It was odd, that I felt safe. With vampires the very thing I’d been running from since I was 14.
“Bella?” Alice called her voice slightly worried.
“Yes,” I answered.
“Is everything alright? Are you comfortable?” Alice asked.
“Yes, I’m fine. Thank you very much.” I said. After the whole cake thing Emmett I finally completely realized that the Cullen’s were trying to help us. Alice had let me sleep in her room while Dominic was able to sleep in Edward’s room. But when I had fallen asleep for about an hour I awoke to find Dominic curled up next to me on the couch in Alice’s room.
“It must’ve been hard.” Alice said gesturing to my little brother.
“What must’ve been hard?” I asked in confusion.
“Raising him on your own; I mean you were only 14. How did you manage raising a 9 year old boy when you were still a child?” Alice asked, genuinely curious. I sighed then thought bout my answer for a moment.
“When you lose everyone in your family, except one person; something happens. You grow up; you see the world for what it really is. It’s not sugar coated anymore. Basically, you have 2 choices when something like this happens. Number 1 you give up and die along with your family. Or number 2 you live. And living meant that I was now responsible for my brother. That’s how I managed.” I told Alice. Though I knew I told more people then Alice. All of the Cullen’s could hear me. Alice murmured something sounding like ‘I’m sorry’ before she gathered me up into a hug. I hugged her back and buried my face in her shoulder and just let myself be held. Another first in four years; I was being comforted and actually accepting it.
“Thanks,” I whispered pulling back after some time. Alice smiled then told me I should get some sleep. Soon after she left I fell into a dreamless sleep. When I woke up it was already light outside. I looked at the clock hanging on the wall.
“10:00!” I screeched. I was late for school! I stood up and began searching for clothes. I couldn’t find any. I soon began spinning in a circle searching for anything that I could wear to school. Then I stumbled and tripped on something (maybe my own feet?) and fell flat on my butt. Laughter filled the room and I looked up to find Alice, Jasper, Edward, and Emmett. My cheeks flushed and I had a five year old moment and stuck my tongue out at all of them.
“Very mature Bells,” Emmett said. I rolled my eyes and stood up.
“I need food, clothes, a ride to school, and to know where my brother is.” I said all business like.
“You’re skipping school today, I have clothes for you and Dominic is out shopping with Esme.” Alice said back in a business tone. I nodded and sighed. I looked Alice in the eyes.
“I’m going to become a human Barbie today aren’t I?”
