No, you’re nuts! What's wrong with you? We can’t go back there. Not now. Because of her we had to leave. We aren’t doing this again Edward! Rosalie thought.
I held on Bella’s hand tighter, and concentrated on what Carlisle had to say. “Bella is one of us. Part of this family. She is a Cullen. Do I need to remind any of you that we are always behind each other, supporting one another? Right now Bella needs us.” He told us firmly, in a calm voice. The way only he and Esme could do.
He was about to speak again, when I interjected. “We don’t all need to go back to Forks. Bella and I could go on our own.” I struggled to keep myself calm, Rosalie was irritating me right now, so I took a deep breath and continued, “I understand that some of you--” I said, glaring at Rosalie. “Were beginning to like this place as much as Forks. Therefore, there is no need for all of you to come along with us. I’ll be leaving first thing in the morning with Bella.”
I felt Bella squeeze my hand slightly, and I turned to face her. In almost a whisper she said, “I’ll go by myself.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll be fine; I can control myself, if that is what worries you.”
“That’s non-sense, Bella,” Alice called out as she flew to Bella’s side. “You’re definitely going nuts if you believe we’ll let you go by yourself. We would never let you do something stupid like that. You’re my sister and I love you very much, just like the others.” She gave her best smile, and added, “Plus, even if you tried to leave by yourself, which is impossible, I see us all right behind you. We love you, Bella.” Alice hugged her, and Bella smiled back.
I love my dear sister Alice. If I couldn’t get into Bella’s thick skull, I knew she could. Unfortunately, Bella’s stubbornness carried over into her vampire life.
Bella sighed in defeat, and said, “Okay.”
“Yea! I knew I could convince you.” Alice turned to face everyone. “Well, everyone time to pack up. Road trip to Forks!” We all stood up to do as Alice had said. The only one that wasn’t at all happy with this plan was Rosalie. She stormed out of the room, and Emmett followed. Alice pivoted around to face Bella again, and asked, “You will come with me right?” Bella looked me in the eyes, and I smiled back. She rested her head on my chest and said, “Okay, Alice I’ll ride with you.” She could never say no to those topaz puppy eyes.
Alice jumped up and down and took Bella into her arms to hug her. “You are the best sister ever!”
I interrupted her with a fake cough, and pulled Bella back to me; wrapping my arms around her, and giving her a long kiss on the cheek. “But I’m driving.”
“Fine.” She scowled. Bella and I chuckled. We were done packing and ready to go.
Carlisle was on the phone, talking with the manager of the hospital he was currently working in, apologizing for his unexpected leave.
I opened the door for Bella and Alice to get in the Volvo. Edward this is unfair. I wanted to take my porch and drive. You’re a terrible brother. She thought.
I chuckled, and turned to tell her that she could get to drive the Volvo the other half of the way. With that she smiled again, and started babbling about stopping at the mall, and buying some things we might need. It was hard saying no to Alice’s whims.
I walked towards driver seat and buckled up--which was really a habit now. I was so used to doing this because of Bella that I kept doing that even though there was no need for it really. Jasper was sitting on the passenger seat, and looked over at me.
Everything is going to be good, man. He said to me. I nodded, and gave him a faint smile. I was really scared for Bella. Who knows how this will affect her.
Everyone was ready to go. Rosalie and Emmett were driving her M3, while Carlisle and Esme were planning things in the Mercedes.
I snuck a peek at Bella through the rear view mirror. She was giggling at something Alice was telling her. I loved seeing her this way; smiling and being care free. She looked happy. Looking at Bella made me see, once again, that the only thing that mattered in my life was this beautiful creature.
“Are we ready?” I asked.
“Yeah!” Both Alice and Bella shouted, and collapsed into giggles.
“Teenagers.” Jasper retorted. Almost simultaneously, both Alice and Bella stuck their tongues out. We couldn’t control our laughter; we exploded. Rosalie was annoyed, and just wanted to get this idiotic trip over with. After we were prepared, we began driving south. We were on our way to Forks, Washington.
I wondered how Charlie would react when he saw that my family was back...with his, now vampire, daughter. I would know how he felt when he saw me. He had right to hate me, and I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
It took us three days to arrive. We would have been here days before, if Alice hadn’t insisted on stopping almost at every store between destinations. She claimed we needed everything she bought, but Jasper and I were in high doubt of that.
Holding the door for Bella and Alice, they stepped out. We all stood in front of the house. All the memories came back to me. Bella’s first meeting my family; Bella’s first time in my room; her 18th birthday. It didn’t take me long to realized they weren’t my memories. They were Bella’s. I wrapped my arms around her waist, and held her close to me. I rarely got a glimpse of her mind - mostly because she thought it was better to hide certain memories from me. I ran my fingers through her hair, and sighed.
“Home sweet home,” Alice said, breaking the ice in her exited pixie-like voice. Rosalie gave her a look. If looks could kill, Alice would be a goner. I chuckled.
Bella turned to face me and I tightened my arms around her. “Ready love?”
Ready as I’ll ever be. She thought.
“Shall we?” I breathed in her ear, and she shook her head. Arms still wrapped around her waist, we walked inside the house.
Nothing a little cleaning can’t fix. Esme decided. The house was covered in dust. It had been a little more than three years since we were here last.
“Okay everyone, I’ll take over the kitchen and the living room. You do the rest.” In less than five minutes the house was spotless, and we were all sitting around the glass dining table.
Bella spoke before everyone else, “I would like to go tonight.”
“Bella,” Carlisle interjected. “I know you can’t wait to see Charlie, but first we must discuss whether we are going to tell him the entire truth.”
Carlisle had a point. We couldn’t just walk in after four years without an explanation. We had to tell Charlie the truth, or at least something believable.
As long as Bella was by my side, it didn’t matter if the whole world found out who the Cullens really were. However, it was something that the rest of the family would rather not risk. Carlisle had worked hard to keep us a secret for long, so we could fit in the world that we no longer belonged to.
I took Bella’s hand into my own. I knew this was going to be another long discussion. Everyone was disquieted. “Okay let’s start with Cons...” Carlisle began.
