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!
12. Through Their Eyes
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1816 Review this Chapter
The door started to open, slowly. Would Aunt Mari just come in already? What's with the delayed reaction?
I turned around to see what the hold up was and met the eyes of perfection.
Look at her. She looks like she hasn't slept for days. Those rings under her beautful eyes...it breaks my heart to see the worry under those lashes. She was still as pretty as ever though.
Her hair had gotten longer, it was past her waist almost. She looked a little skinnier. Not that she was fat before or anything. She was dressed like she always was. A simple black tee shirt, that looked like it might belong to Jack, and a pair of white shorts. Her hair was pulled in a messy ponytail, with strands curling in her face. She was barefoot, something that wasn't unusual.
She looked at my son like he was a god. It made me smile. They would be together again. I just knew it.
I had always looked at Bella like a daughter. She never had a true father figure, what with her biological one leaving so young. Dino was hardly a father. Edward told me once that he hit them. Mostly Renee, is what he said. He didn't hit Bella because she hit him back. I would've laughed at that if it weren't a serious situation.
Bella looked like she hadn't been at ease for a few weeks. She was tense and looked absolutely frantic. Until seh layed eyes on Edward. All traces of worry were gone. Things were going to be okay soon enough. I could feel it.
My best friend looks like she walked to hell and back. And brought back a soveniour. She looked like she was run over by a truck. And that outfit! I wanted to rip it off (no dirtiness intended here) and put her in stilettos, Vera Wang and Kate Spade. But I knew that wasn't going to happen...for the time being.
She looked so worried about Jack. I heard she hadn't left the room unless she had to go to the bathroom. Renee and her family brought her food and clothes. She even slept in their on a spare hospital bed. But when she saw Edward it all melted away.
I just might have a new sister in law soon.
So this was Bella. I had to admit she was beautiful. I had Alice, but I could definately see what Edward saw in her. She looked very on the edge though. I couldn't blame her, I mean, her brother was pretty messed up. I saw her eyes lit up when she saw Edward. Edward's eyes did the same. Maybe they really were meant to be together. Alice sure was convinced.
And my Alice is never wrong...
Hmm. Pretty enough. Seemed nice enough. But looks can be deceiving. She could be a complete and utter bitch for all I knew. But then again, Edward wasn't into the whole bitchy whore relationships...She looks pretty messed up. I guess I would be too if Jasper or Edward was in this condition. I mean this guy looks pretty banged up. I hope he's okay. It would be horrible for Bella to lose her brother. Edward told us that they meant the world to each other...
Maybe I could be nice to this girl. I mean, if she raised Lila so well, then maybe she wasn't all bad. Maybe she wasn't any bad. Maybe she was nice. I hope she's nice. If she's not, I just might kick her ass.
Wowzah. She's hot. Not as hot as my Rose, but still....She's hot. Eddie made a good choice. Plus, she looks like she might be fun to mess with. Not right now though. Her brother's pretty fucked up. I know not to screw with a chick when she's on edge. She'll snap, and man, she'll rip you in half.
I remember one time when Rose tried to bite me.....
Was it normal for grown ups to talk to themselves? Cause I swear I just heard Uncle Emmy say something about Aunt Rose biting him...
Edward fucking Cullen. Shoot me now. I didn't know he was coming. Did anyone know he was coming? Aunt Mari had that evil look on her face yesturday...but wouldn't she give a girl a warning. I look like shit! I mean, I'm only dressing for my comatose bro! Jesus....you'd think she'd give her oldest neice a break.
And what was he doing showing up here, giving me no notice. None, zip, zero, zilch.
"Bella," He breathed. His voice was still smooth. Velvety if I do say so myself.
"Edward." I nodded in his direction. He frowned at my cold behavior. I felt a little bad....he took Lila in with no questions.
"I'm so sorry about Jack, Bells!" Alice cried, pushing past a muscular man to hug me. I hugged her right back.
"It's okay, Ali." I laughed.
"You didn't hit him with a cement truck."
Her eyes widened. "A cement truck?" She gasped.
I grinned."Yeah, the CT 2004." I said, trying to sound serious. She processed this and burst out laughing. It was an inside joke.
I was sitting at my counter with Alice on my her laptop. We were looking at cars I could get. I was looking for something in the family of cheap.
"What about this?" Alice asked, pointing at a used Hummer. I rolled my eyes.
"Alice, I don't want that car because everyone has that car. I want something that makes me look really bad ass. Like a BA." She raised an eyebrow."It's short for bad ass." I explained.
She rolled her eyes. "Be serious, Bella. We have to find you an awesome car!" Alice exclaimed.
An idea popped in my head. "I got it!" I cried. "I''ll drive a cement truck!"
"No, I'm serious. You can sit in the spinny thing." Her eyes widened. "Don't worry, we'll pad it. I'll toss some Jolly Ranchers in there and you can suck on those while you spin. And we can make me fifty inch spinners out of aluminum foil and oranments."
"That'll work." She muttered, sarcastically.
"Don't diss the CT 2004." I warned her. This time I got the reaction I wanted- she laughed.
Those were the good old days. I spent my time kissing Edward, hanging with Alice, avoiding Dino, talking to mom, avoiding Dino, laughing with Jack, avoiding Dino. Same old thing every day.
Sometimes I spent my days halled up in my room. Thinking about dad...aw, dad. Alice was grinning at me.
"You haven't changed much, Bella."
"I could say the same for you." I looked her up and down. "You haven't grown much."
"I think she's part garden gnome." The burly one laughed. A blond woman smacked his arm. I laughed.
"I think he might be right, Ali." I nodded. She mock glared at me.
"Bella Swan, you have some explaining to do." She waved a finger in my face.
"Oh?" I raised an eyebrow.
"How could you not tell us about Lila?" She demanded.
I sighed. I seriously wasn't in the mood for chit chat.
"Can we talk...later?" I asked. "I think I might be due for a trip home."
I glanced at Jack. What if he woke up and I wasn't there? What if he asked for me and I couldn't get here fast enough? What if he needed me and I couldn't help him? Oh, wait. That already happened.
"Fair enough." Esme agreed.
To say the least, it was an awkward night filled with small talk and sideways glances. We talked about Jack, we talked a little about old times. We even said a few things about my family. Edward wasn't too happy to hear that Dino was living with us too, until Jack was out of the hospital. Mom had finally put her foot down and made him stay so she could visit her son.
Around ten, Lila was asleep in my lap, her hands around my neck. She had her face buried on my shoulder. It was adorable. I drove home with Rosie, Bliss, Carson, Harlie, Delilah and LuLu in Delilah's car. Bliss was on Rosie's lap and Carson had Harlie on his. They were talking my ear off about Edward.
"He was cute, Bella!" Harlie cried when we were in the car.
"Why the hell did you let him go?" Rosie demanded.
Carson shot her a look.
"Language." He warned.
Rosie rolled her eyes."But seriously, why?" She demanded.
"Spill, Bells." LuLu ordered, loudly. Lila stirred in her sleep. I made a shushing noise at my closest blond cousin and sighed again.
"Fine," I mumbled. "We slept together senior year and I ended up pregnant with Lila. I was mad. I was convinced it was all his fault that we weren't...safe," I had to phrase this properly, Bliss was in the car.
"And so I left him, Plus, he had his music. He wanted to be on top."
Delilah waggled her eyebrows at me. LuLu smacked her arm and Delilah giggled.
"Shut up, Del. Top of the charts." I hissed, eyeing Bliss. I knew she knew what sex was, but she didn't need to be around Del's nasty mind.
"So, basically, you were stupid and dumped the hottest guy on earth." Harlie stated. Carson rolled his eyes. Sometimes I felt bad that he was surrounded by girls. Now was one of those times.
Sometimes I worried about Carson. He needed to find himself a girlfriend.
"Typical Belle." LuLu sighed. It was my turn to roll my eyes. They made me seem like I was some man hater who made a cross with her fingers everytime a guy walked by.
"Are you getting back together?" Delilah asked, turning around. She was sitting up front, while Lulu drove. Carson was next to me with Harlie and Rosie sat next to him with Bliss.
"I don't know." I growled. I didn't want to talk about this. The truth was, I would give anything to be a family with Lila and him. I was afraid he didn't want that.
"Perk up. Were almost home." Harlie ordered.
"Bella, just remember. Confidence is key." LuLu instructed. "But we know you have plenty of that."
"Damn right she does." Delilah agreed.
"Del!" Carson hissed. "Lissbay niay arcay."
"You know Del doesn't understand pig latin, Sonny." Rosie huffed, turning to explain to Del. "Bliss in car."
"Oh," Delilah nodded. "I knew that."
"Yeah, right." Rosie rolled her eyes. Delilah turned around and stuck her tongue out.
"Watch the road." Carson ordered.
Carson grew up at a young age. He was always responsible. He has his moments where he just cuts loose and parties, but that was rare. He was almost always sober. He was our designated driver, for when we actually drove the half an hour to civilazation.
