Because I never left

Renee never left Charlie when Bella was a baby. Bella is there when Edward arrives. I said i'd put the top two up but instead i put all of the ones i got. i got four. I can't remember everyone who sent one in so if yours gets chosen let me know that you sent it in and i'll put up a announcement. Also, if one gets chosen and then removed for being the wrong size i'll go for the second most popular Because I never Left Banner 1

When I got back home, Emmett called Carlisle from the hike and he returned to bandage my hand. Then he left, and Emmett and Jasper decided to go with him. I was alone in the house with Esme. I decided to read. The Cullen's had a vast library that I had barely looked at. I settled down with a big fat book and read. It was so silent that when the door opened, I jumped.

"Sorry" said Edward, coming in "How's the hand?"


"Punch someone your own size next time. What's wrong?" he asked, his tone changing.

"Nothing. I was just thinking"

"May I enquire what about?"


"The boy you punched? Wasn't he the one who helped cause your..."

"Yeah" I said, gratefully for him cutting short that comment.

"What about him?"

"Well, when he snuck up on me, he kind of freaked. He shouted some stuff about your family, when I told him I was staying with you"

"What did he say?" asked Edward, curiously.

"You are never going to believe this. He said, you're family were vampires" I laughed. Something flashed in Edward's eyes. The laughter that came two seconds after was strained. I froze.

"You're....vampires?" I squeaked the last word.

"Bella. Please don't freak," he said, whispering with earnest "I couldn't tell you! I wanted too! If you want to leave because of it, you can! I promise I won't stop you! Just hear me out" he placed a hand on my arm.

"Okay" I was still freaked. I'd been in a house of
vampires for the past week?!

"Yes we are vampires. We are dangerous but our family has abstained from drinking human blood. We're like vegetarians; we only drink animal blood"

"So...you don't want to kill me?"

"No. well..."

"What Edward? What aren't you telling me?" I asked sharply.

"Well, your blood. It smells better then any other blood I've ever smelt, but only to me. That makes me dangerous to you but I've been controlling myself since I met you. Do you remember our first day?"

"You glared at me"

"That's because I thought you would ruin me. But, Bella, I can't hurt you. If I did, it would kill me"

"As well as me"

"Please don't make jokes of that nature"

"Okay, okay"

"So, are you okay with this?" he asked, a small pleading smile on his face.

"Yeah, sure. Edward, why did you come home early?" I asked, switching subject.

"I was worried about you. Also, I was full"

"You were hunting?"

"Yes. It's sunny; I needed to make sure you didn't see me. It would have blown my cover more then that stupid boy did"

"Jacob's not just a stupid boy," I said.

"I thought you didn't like him?"

"I'm not defending him. I just figure I can tell you now that I know you can probably cope with it. That day, Jake got mad. He turned into a giant wolf and that's what scared me into the road" Edward burst out laughing.

"What's so funny?"

"That explains the smell!" he said.
