I slid my hand along the wooden banister as I walked down the stairs. It was dark out, I have no idea of the time. I had been holding Melanie in my arms for at least an hour trying to get her to fall asleep. When she finally did, I laid her gently in her crib and started to come down stairs for a drink. I walked into the dim lighted kitchen, the clock over the stove read 10:25pm. My purse rested on the counter, I reached into it for my cell phone. 2 missed calls, both from Jordan. Just then the phone started to vibrate. It made me jump I hadn't expected it. It again, was Jordan.
"Hello" I said into the phone.
"Hey Bella how is everything?" He asked
"Fine. I just got Melanie to sleep." I answered
"Did you kiss her goodnight for me?"
"Of course I did."
"Well I just wanted to tell you that I will be home late tonight."
"Yeah, I figured that."
"Well don't wait up for me, because it will be late, but can you wake me up when you get up tomorrow?"
"Yeah sure, why?" I asked
"I have some big news to tell you."
"Oh, Okay." I said, suddenly curious
"Goodnight Bella. I love you.”
“I love you too, Jordan.” I flipped my phone shut. I sighed. I hated this new work schedule of his. Well it wasn’t very new, it’s been like this for 4 months now. I would leave for work at 7. Jordan would say home with Melanie and then I would get home at 3, and then at 4 he left for work and worked all through the night. I didn't like it. I barely got to ever see him. I guess that's what I get for marrying a doctor. But I didn't know he was a doctor when I met him, or when I fell in love with him. It was just like icing on the cake. You fall in love with most perfect guy ever and then you find out that he is rich. Not that that had anything to do with my love for him, I would love him no matter what job he had, work had nothing to do with it. But it was nice, I didn't think I would be able to have children until I was 30. I didn't think I could afford it. You don't make to much on a teacher's pay. But I don't know how I could have waited to have Melanie. She is Jordan and my life. We love her so much. Charlie simply adores her too. He didn't even think I would be having my first child so young. I was only 22 when I had her. She is now 2 years old, and I an 24. Jordan's will turn 30 next month. I married Jordan when I was 21.
I never thought it was possible for me to find someone other then Edward Cullen, that I wanted to spend forever with. Jordan is the reason for my happiness, he gave me the strength to move on. Without him I wouldn't have this life, I love.
I was tired, Melanie had me running around all evening at the park. I poured myself a cup of tea. I sipped it slowly and thought about the news that Jordan had. I continued my thoughts even as I laid in bed. Even know I was tired, I had a hard time getting to sleep.
Beep, Beep, Beep. I hit my alarm before it could awake Jordan. He was a very heavy sleeper. I took a shower and got dressed for the day. I wore a knee length black pencil skirt with a white blouse and black heels. I hated how I had to dress for work. That was the down side to teaching. I taught English at the local middle school to 8th graders.
I couldn't wait any longer, I wanted to know what Jordan's news was. I shook his bare shoulder gently until he awake.
"hmm, oh hey baby. Is it morning already?" He asked. I loved waking him up. For years he always says the same thing and seems some what surprised that I'm there with him.
"Why do you always acted like that?" I asked as I grinned at him, he grinned back.
"Like what?" He looked confused
"Like your amazed that I am here, with you." I said
"Oh because I am, You never get use to being awaken by an angel." I grinned at him and leaned closer.
"I love you." He said, and I went in for a kiss. His lips met mine, moving with mine. I felt him sit up slightly and wrap his arm around my waist pulling down on him. He rolled over on me, in the bed. He started kissing m neck. I giggled until I realised that he was messing up my hair.
"Jordan, mmm, Jordan. Okay, stop baby, I have to leave soon." I managed to choke out between giggles. He rolled off up me and hopped out of bed. He only wore green plaid pajama pants. He was shirtless exposing his muscular arms, and sun tanned chest. He ran around to my side of the bed, he gestured for my hand. I giggle and place my hand in his, where it felt so right.
"I'll go make some coffee." I let go of his hand, but instead he grabbed mine tighter and pulled me closer to him. He kissed me.
"I love Bella." He whispered into my ear.
"I love Jordan." I whispered back. He let go of me and I continued my way the the kitchen.
I started a pot of coffee and sat down at the table with a bowl of special K and the newspaper.
Jordan into the room whistling a unfamiliar tone. I smile, and he grinned back as he poured himself a cup of coffee, then taking a seat across from me.
"So," I started "this big news?" It seems like he has forgotten about it.
"Oh, oh, oh yes! Baby it's great." I nodded has he spoke "So Dr. Peterson got a call from Boston Hospital."
"In Massachusetts?" I interrupted
"Mhm. From a former doctor from here in Forks. His partner quit in him and there is an opening for another head doctor there. Bella, If I took this job I would be making 4 times as much money as I was making now! You wouldn't have to work, you could stay at home with Melanie. I wouldn't be working night hours anymore. You can finally pick out your dream house and...." He was rambling, trying to sell me on the idea. He knew I didn't want to move way from Forks. But this sounded like a huge deal...
"Wow, Boston." I said
"Yeah. I don't have to tell Dr. Peterson until next week if I am interested, but baby I am! I know you don't want to move away from Forks but...." He trailed off.
"Uh no. Wow. No this is good. I don't want to have to move but, this could be really good for Melanie's future. We would get to each other more during the day, and Melanie would never have to be in daycare. We would have money for her college fund...."
"Yes, and we would have a bigger house so if we wanted to have more kids...."
"Whoa Jordan, back it up. I have pretty much sold me on the idea of moving, but have more kids soon...."
"Haha okay baby you're right. But you really like the idea?"
"Yeah, I do." And I did. It was a great opportunity for us all. The only bad thing would be moving away from Charlie, but he and Billy lived together since Jacob....
"Boston? Jacob lives only an hour away!"
"Oh. Him. Great." Jordan rolled his eyes. I chuckled
I stood up and emptied my bowl in the sink. "Give me the rest of the day to think about it, I've got to leave now anyway."
"Have a nice day Mrs. Gracey"
"You too, Dr. Gracey"
I kissed him goodbye, and shut the front door.
