You Don't Know The Half Of It
He would've helped. He really, honestly would've. How was The Famous Edward Cullen supposed to know that his high school girlfriend had given birth to his daughter? How was he supposed to know that his ex-girlfriends brother, who was also her best friend, got in a car accident and the hospital wasnt child friendly? How was he supposed to know that his six year old daughter had to stay with him until her uncle recovered? And how was Emmett supposed to know what stupid was a mean word? AN: A little OOC. Oh, who am I kidding? Bella and Edward are so out of character, its not even funny! Well, I hope its funny. But still. You get what I'm saying. Oh, and banner courtesy of lunamoon!
This is kind of based off the Game Plan. I watched it with my brother and liked the idea of it so I made it a story. Some of the stuff in her is straight out of the movie, but most of the stuff is mine!
11. The Door To His Destiny
Rating 5/5 Word Count 2238 Review this Chapter
I ran a hand through my hair as I sat down on the couch. Esme noticed.
"Edward, what's wrong?" She asked, placing a hand on my knee.
"Nothing, it's nothing. I just had an...interesting incounter, today." I sighed.
"With who?" Jasper asked.
"Lila's aunt." I told them.
"Why was she in L.A? I thought you said they live in the backwoods, man?" Emmett asked.
"Tennessee, yeah. Apparently she was here, buying a horse. She talked to me about going up to Tennessee to see Bella." I explained.
As soon as the words left my mouth, Alice was already flying around.
"I'm coming! We'll leave tomorrow, everyone, pack!" Alice squaeled before running, and I mean running out of the apartment. Jasper jogged to catch up with her. As soon as we were sure she had to be in the elevator, she poked her head back in.
"Call that woman, Edward. I'm booking us a flight for six a.m. Be ready, were picking you up." With that, she went straight back out the door.
"How does she do that?" I asked myself.
"Dude, if were leaving at six, I gotta get some zzzzz's." Emmett pretended to yawn.
"You're coming too?" I asked.
"Hell yeah. Were not passing up the chance to see the love of Eddie's life!" Emmett called, leaving with his arm around Rosalie. Esme smiled softly at me.
"Let me guess- you're coming as well?"
"You bet." She told me. "C'mon, Carlisle. Time to pack." They went for the door, but not before Esme called over her shoulder. "I would pack a lot, dear! You don't know how long you'll be there. Oh, and don't forget underwear!"
I suppose I should pack for Lila and I. I walked quietly into Lila's room. It surprised me when I found her light on and her putting everything into her suitcase. It made me sort of sad. To see all her stuff thrown in a suitcase. It made me feel like she was leaving.
"What are you doing up?" I asked. She grinned. Her hair was a mess and her eyes were excited. I sat on the bed and ruffled her hair.
"I heard Aunt Alice! Were going to mommy!" She sang, throwing more clothes in the bag. "Is everybody coming?"
"Everyone." I nodded.
"Even Grandma and Grandpa?" She checked. I nodded again. She tossed a small pile of shirts in the bag. I chuckled.
"Need some help?" I asked, taking the clothes out of the bag. Since Alice had taken her shopping, her clothing amount had multiplied. She had three times as many clothes now. Most of them were designer. Bella wouldn't be happy about that. I began folding the clothes and placing them neatly in the suitcase. Lila copied my actions, messily.
How cute could she be?
It was late. There was an empty bed that the docter's left in Jack's room for me. They knew I never left. I pushed the bed next to Jack's and flipped the small TV on. It might help me go to sleep. I flipped through the channels, aimlessly, until I found celebrity news.
This stuff was pretty entertaining.
I was watching something about Madonna and adopting when they switched topics. They were talking about Edward.
"And Edward Cullen showed up at a CD signing in L.A today, with a little girl." The host/announcer said. I gasped when Lila's face appeared on the screen.
"Who do you think she is?" The co host asked.
"Word is that she's his daughter." He answered.
I switched the TV off. I never really considered the fact that Lila might be exposed to the public when I sent her to Edward. In fact, I actually didn't have to send her to Edward. I could have kept her at home. But everyday, most everyone was here. Someone would always have to stay behind and watch her.
I used that as an excuse. I wanted so badly for her to know her dad. And from the looks of it, Edward was getting along pretty well with her. I only hoped it stayed that way. I watched Jack silently. He hasn't woken up since we brought him in, five weeks ago. It's scaring me. My brother can't die. He can't be in a coma. I just might kill myself if he was.
Well, okay, I'm exaggerating. But still. I would never be the same if my big brother left me. As I thought about a coma, I started thinking about Dane Cook. He was Jack's favorite comedian. We went and saw him one time, actually. His favorite thing is when he's talking about his exaggerating girlfriend.I remember almost all the words, because we play it all the time.
(Italics- Girls voice)
"Oh my god, Dane, there was a fire down the street from my house, there was like a thousand fire fighters out there." He had said in a girls voice. "I got home from work today, I took like a hundred hour nap. No you did not! You'd be very sick if you're taking hundred hour naps. Thats a coma, so you took a coma after work. I took a coma, about a hundred hours, thats a great coma." I laughed a little to myself.
I'd have to play that for him when he wakes up.
I woke Lila up around five. I hopped in the shower and got dressed before I woke her up though. She was dressed in a pair of shorts and a yellow shirt. I threw on a pair of jeans and a tee shirt Bella got me in high school. It was still my favorite shirt. Probably because she bought it for me. We grabbed our bags. I packed two suitcases.
When Alice came and picked us up, I saw she rented a hugge SUV. She had four bags of her own in the back. Jasper had two. Emmett and Rose were already in the car. Rosalie had three bags and Emmett had one. I put Lila in her carseat and strapped her in. We picked Carlisle and Esme up. Esme had two bags and Carlisle had the same. I only packed Lila one bag, but Alice had clothes at her place she bought for her, so Lila ended up with three bags of stuff.
We checked in and got on the plane. we took up around three rows of seats. I sat on the window seat, so Lila was in between Esme and I. Carlisle sat in the row in front of us with Alice and Jasper. Rosalie and Emmett were behind Lila, Esme and I. Emmett kept kicking my seat.
I fianlly turned around, an hour into the flight.
"Emmett, cut it out." I growled.
"Make me." He taunted. What was this, second grade?
I rolled my eyes and turned back around. Lila was bouncing in her seat and Esme was trying to calm her down.
"I can't sit still, Grandma! Were going to see Uncle Jacky!" Lila exclaimed. People turned to look at us. A lot of people stared at me the whole flight. A few even got up to ask me for my autograph. One girl screamed. And then proceeded to faint. She was fine, though, she woke up a few minutes later.
What would it be like? To be in Tennessee with my Bella...she's talked about it many times before. But I've never been able to imagine it. She lived in a very small town, called Feilds.
Not very original, I know, but she loved it there. She talked about a river with a waterfall and a rope swing. She told me about that old farmhouse everyone lived in.
And the horses, she loved to ride. I was looking foward to seeing this town. But not as much as I was looking foward to seeing her.
Mari told me that her husband, Joe, was picking us up. We arrived at the airport and loked all around after getting our luggage. Finally, we saw a man with a rusty old pick up truck and sign that said 'Cullen'.
"You must be the Cullens." He smiled. Lila jumped into his arms and sang
"Hey there, short stuff." He chuckled in a raspy voice.
"This is my daddy!" Lila grinned as she gestured towards me. Joe looked me up and down.
"Well, I can see why Bella picked you. If I were playing for the other team, I would too." He laughed. "C'mon. Don't got lots of room, ya'll will have to ride in the back." He pointed to the bed of the truck.
He had three seats in the cab of his truck. Behind the drivers seat and passenger seat, that is. Esme sat up front with him while Rosalie, Alice and Lila sat in the back. Emmett, Jasper, Carlisle and I rode in the bed. That sure was fun. Emmett tried to push me out twice. After about an hour in that goddamn truck, we pulled up to an old house in the middle of nowhere. I
t was around six and the sun still hadn't gone down. I looked around gasped. It was beautiful. Gorgeous, just like Bella told me. Feilds of green grass for miles. A stable full of horses. A large, sparkling river with a small waterfall and a rope swing. And an old, huge, farmhouse right in the middle of it.
"Everyone's at the hospital. I'll show you around." Joe told us when we were on the porch. We went in the house.
Hardwood floors that creaked. Simple furniture, comfortable looking actually. It was a nice change from designer. He showed us our rooms. On the second floor was Mari and Joe's room, Renee and Dino's room along with Bella's grandparents. Esme and Carlisle stayed in the spare room on that floor.
The third floor had Harlie, Bliss and Rosie. Emmett and Rosalie took the spare room on that level. Fourth floor had Carson, LuLu and Delilah. Alice and Jasper took a room down there.
Lila shot up to the highest level. She dragged me to the end of the hall.
"This is my room." She told me.
The door swung open to reveal and bright yellow room. There was a twin bed in the corner and a closet across from it. The floor had a red, yellow and orange rug. There was a toybox and a doll house. Stuffed animals were located in various places.
"Do you like it?" Lila asked, looking hopeful.
"I love it." I smiled. She clapped and took me back in the hall. She pointed the rooms out for me.
"This is the potty," She pointed at the room across from hers.
"This is your room," She pointed at the room next to hers.
"And this is mommy's room." She pointed to the room...right across from mine. There was another door at the end of the hall.
"What's that?" I asked.
"That used to be mommy's daddy's room. Mommy doesn't like people in there." Lila explained. I
nodded. That was reasonable.
"Sooo..." I trailed off. We went down to the kitchen. Alice was bouncing up and down.
"C'mon! Were going to see Bella and Jack!" She exclaimed, grabbing my hand.
"There's a problem Alice," Rosalie pointed out. "We don't have a car." Alice grinned.
"Joe said we could use Mari's Honda. It's brand new, but he trusts me." I rolled my eyes and scooped Lila up.
"I'm not allowed there." She whispered.
"They'll make an exception." I reassured her.
We drove out to the hospital in good time. It was only twenty minutes away to the nearest civilization. Once we were in the hospital, we found a huge mass of people sitting in the waiting room. Joe and Mari were with them.
"Everyone, I told you Lila's daddy was coming." Mari smiled. "This is Edward, Rosalie, Alice, Jasper, Emmett, Carlisle and Esme. Carlisle, as a docter, do you think you might be able t come look at Jack and give your opinion?"
"Of course." He smiled warmly at everyone before going with Mari to see Jack.
"Everyone, this is my mom and dad, Beth and Stephen. You know my wife, Mari. These are my kids, Delilah and Bliss. This is my nephew, Carson and my neices, LuLu, Rosie and Harlie. And you already know, I'm Joe. Renee is at the store and Dino is...around." He gave us a crinkly eyed smile. Carlisle and Mari came back.
"Bella was in the bathroom, so she still has no clue you're here." Mari stage whispered.
"What did you think, doc?" Stephen asked, worriedly. Lila was sitting on Beth's lap.
"Well, you know that he has a fracture in his skull, thee broken ribs, a broken leg and fracuted wrist. If he hasn't woekn up, he will soon. The trauma in his head isn't too bad, he's just resting it off. In my opinion, he'll be fine." I could almost see the releif wash over their faces.
Alice tapped her foot. "Can we go see Bella and Jack now?" She asked, impatiently.
"C'mon." Mari chuckled, pulling us behind her. I picked Lila up and took her with us. We stopped in front of a closed door that read 'Jack Swan'. I sighed.
"Here goes nothing." I opened the door.
The door that would show me my fate.
