The plane landed softly, squealing tires blowing smoke on the black runway. I looked out at the dark night and fidgeted unnaturally in my seat. I never remembered Forks being this gloomy, I just remember dark skies and constant clouds. The flight attendant smiled at me and winked but she would never know. She was nothing compared to Bella. I caught a taxi and made the driver squirm nervously in his seat.
Who is this guy? What is this guy? He thought to himself.
I paid him and exited the cab, relieved to be out of his presence. He smelled so good. The ground was soft and moist underneath my feet and I heard laughter come from inside the great house. It was the laugh of an angel. I tried to walk slowly, build up the anticipation, but it was too much for me, I didn’t want to wait another moment. Voices came from inside, familiar voices. Rosalie, Alice, Emmett, Jasper, Esme, Carlisle…and Bella. I smiled and knocked softly on the door. There was a pause and then a scurrying of feet. Could they know that it’s me? A littler heart thumped to the door and blood rushed silently. It was Alice. She stood in front of the door and slowly turned the door knob. Errrrrrk! The door creaked as it opened and Alice stood there and met my eyes. I smiled and her face grew pale and her heart skipped a beat before speeding up wildly.
“B-b-bella!!” She screamed shaky and stuttering.
No no no! How can this be? What’s going on? Am I seeing things? Ghosts? She asked in her head.
“Yes Alice?” Bella rounded the corner of our small cozy house and a plate crashed to the floor as she saw me. Her lips trembled and her eyes swelled up. Was it confusion? Pain? Happiness? Shock? I don’t know. I can’t hear her.
“Edward?” She asked through tears spilling down her cheeks.
“Yes Bella. It’s me.” In a second she was in my arms. Holding her body so close I thought she might break. She could break but I was careful. Hesitantly I pulled her face up to mine and kissed her, a perfect kiss. Her warm skin in my hands made me feel alive again, made me feel everything that I had been missing, everything that I had wished for, everything that I wanted, everything I needed. Would she notice when she let go of me how much I’ve changed? Just then we unlocked from the embrace, looked into each others eyes and she put her head on my chest. Her heart pumped fast as she tried to squeeze me tight.
“How could this happen? Where have you been? I’ve missed you so much…” She rambled on as I smiled breathing in her sweet scent ignoring the painful burn deep inside of me. Maybe she wouldn’t notice at all.
“You’re so cold…” She finally said and I closed my eyes trying to choke back my terrible secret.
“It’s just chilly outside Bella.” I lied, it wasn’t chilly at all.
“I love you Edward. I’ve really missed you. We all have missed you.” She let go of me and two tiny toddlers stumbled from behind her. Dry tears poured from my eyes as I reached down to grab them. November and Abel. They’re so beautiful.
“Daddy?” November whispered as she nestled her head on my shoulder and began sucking her thumb. Abel ran his fingers along my face and smiled my crooked smile.
“Hey buddy.” I cooed as I held him in my arms.
“Edward!” Esme cried and ran to me, kissing my face as she hugged me. “Oh son! Where have you been?” She screamed. Carlisle walked down stairs with a confused look on his face.
“Did someone say Edward?” He asked before he saw me standing in the doorway. He blinked five times before he closed his mouth.
“Edward!!” His voice cracked as he flew down the stairs and joined Esme in the hug. Bella sighed beside me and I turned to her and smiled. I put down the babies and walked over to her, ever so slowly taking her hand and kissing it.
“I love you Bella and im never going to leave you again. I promise.”
“I love you too.” She sobbed as I held her in my arms. Rosalie and Emmett and Jasper all gathered around with stunned eyes. Questions rambling on in there heads, after hellos and hugs and a lot of crying we sat down on the white leather couches. Now they wanted answers.
“Edward what happened out there?” Carlisle asked as November sat in my lap playing with my shirt.
“There were a lot of bombs, loud screeching air planes over head, a lot of confusion and panic. I was cutting across the battle field when I got shot. I went down and I stayed down until someone, I don’t know who, picked me up and carried me away. I was P.O.W. for a while until they found me.” Bella’s eyes began to tear up again and I squeezed her hand very gently. Her warm touch was like a fire in my cold hands. I’ve missed that warm touch so much.
“But it’s okay now. I’m not going back anymore, I don’t need to. I’m going to stay here with my family and live the life we always wanted.” I said as I looked into each of their eyes. If only they knew.
“We just good to have you back son.” Carlisle said, holding back his own tears. And then we sat there, me and my wife and my kids and family. We sat there until the early hours of the morning, just talking, just remembering and just loving each other. Trying to keep our composure, trying to forget about what happened out there. I had the hardest time with that- the things I did, the person I became, the thing I’ve become. A monster. If only I could tell them with out them getting horrified and running off, if only I could tell them and they still love me the same way. For now, I’ll just love them, I’ll just love my Bella, my sweet Bella. This was going to be our happy ending. The happy ending I promised her from the beginning. Even if I had to swallow the monster and live like this forever, I am going to give her everything I have.
I love you Bella.
