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!
19. The River
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1502 Review this Chapter
I walked outside to find the sun and grassy feilds. It really was a beautiful place. I heard a shreik behind me. There, in front of the large stable, was Joe riding a big brown horse. Lila was running towards me, past him.
"Daddy!" She sang, throwing herself into my arms. I swung her around, effortlessly.
"Hey there, sweetheart." I chuckled.
"Are you going to find mommy?" She asked, her eyes twinkling with excitment. "Cause she went to the river."
I kissed my daughters forehead. "Thank you, sweetie."
The river was beautiful. Sparkling and blue. Almost like tropical waters, rather then a small town river. The waterfall fell from large sand colored rocks. Because the river was located near the woods, there was a rope swing that you could use to swing into the water. And the river was deep enough to dive into. It was rather perfect, actually.Bella sat on the edge of the water, looking down at her reflection. She stared sadly back at herself.
So, in a tragic attempt to cheer her up, I, fully dressed, grabbed the rope swing and launched myself in. I landed with a splash, that most likely drenched Bella. I popped my head abck up and found Bella smiling down at my wet expression.
"Hi, there." I said, casually, as if I hadn't just dove into a pool of water.
"What are you doing?" She laughed, brushing my hair back. It had been falling in my eyes.
"Cheering you up," I announced. "Mari told me about the Charlie situation."
Her face fell. "Yeah. That." She muttered.
"What's wrong?" I asked. "You'll get to see your father again!"
She glared at the water. "What father? I have no father." She murmured, splashing the river with her hand, shattering her reflection.
I took her hand and held the land to steady myself in the water. It was deeper then I actually expected. She looked into my eyes, tearing up.
"Things have bee crazy lately." I murmured, tracing patterns on her hand with my thumb. "But that's no reason to turn your family away."
She closed her eyes and took a breath. "Edward, he turned us away. I'm not the bad guy here." She was right. But she was also wrong.
"Bella, love, you miss your father. He may have created this mess, but you can to take the first steps in cleaning it up." I told her, softly. She sighed.
"I don't know what to do. I know they aren't talking to him until I'm on board." She stared at the grass next to her. I lifted her chin with my finger so that she stared straight into my eyes.
"Then get on board, love."
His green orbs stared me down, lovingly.
"Then get on board, love."
He reached up so that he was halfway out of the water and gently kissed me. A rush of old feeling came bursting through my surface. It was so natural, it felt like he had never been gone. I moved my mouth with his, savoring the moment. Until, to my right, I heard a splash.
We looked around. Not a soul in sight.
Until Carson's head popped up out of the water.I
laughed as he shook his blond hair out. He grinned when Edward reached to splash him for ruining our kiss.
"I'm not one for ruining a moment." He defended himself, wading over. "But that oppurtunity was too good to pass up. Rosie and Harlie never bring there dates home to meet me."
"I wonder why." I exclaimed, sarcastically, reaching down to splash him once again. I didn't expect him to grab my wrist. Or to pull me in.
I plunged into the cool, refreshing river water. I floated back up to the surface and popped my head up. Edward and Carson were swimming around and laughing at my disheveled hair. I mock glared at them.
"You guys are horrible!" I cried, in fake annoyance.
"I know they are." I heard Rosie's voice behind me. I turned around.
She was standing there with Harlie and Bliss, holding her camera. She snapped a picture and tossed it onto a pile of clothes. They were all in bathing suits.Rosie was wearing a white bikini with a red rose on one the left. Harlie had on a purple and black bikini, simple but absolutely gorgrous on her, Bliss, being only eleven, had on an orange tankini with yellow polka dots all over it. All of them had there hair down and shining. Blond or black, both styles looked amazing.
"We thought you might want some company." Harlie explained.
"We didn't realize you had plenty of company already." Rosie eyed Edward, suspiciously.
"Um, Hello? You're brothers here too." I pointed out, looking at Rosie like she had two heads.
She shrugged. "That's beside the point."I rolled my eyes. There was laughter somewhere behind them, and soo enough, Rosalie, Emmett, Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Del, LuLu (who was holding Lila) and Uncle Joe were coming through the trees. Del had on a black bikini with white stripes that matched her hair. LuLu had on a plain, but striking, hot pink bikini. Where did they find those things? This is backwoods here, people! I mean, look at Uncle Joe. Plain navy blue swim trunks.
Carlisle didn't look flashy either. Just black trunks. Alice was wearing a neon purple bikini that suited her small form. Rosalie had a on a deep red one peice, with a strip of her skin showing all the way to her belly button. Jasper had on white trunks and Emmett had on green.Lila looked pretty though. She had on a yellow one peice bathing suit, and she looked cute and innocent. Good. I didn't want Rosie and LuLu corrupting her little mind. I did enough of that on my own.
Lila jumped into my waiting arms and I swam around with her, seeing as she couldn't swim without water wings. But Del put them on her feet last week when she was swimming and they popped becuase she stood up on ground with them still on. We had to buy new ones, but we just haven't gotten around to it yet.
"Oh, look. A party." I muttered, sarcastically. Del jumped in, making me float partly away.
"Lighten up, Mommy Dearest." LuLu laughed, jumping into Carson's arms.
"I bet he wishes you were Caroline." Bliss teased.
"Caroline?" Bella asked, curiously. Carson blushed, but tried to hide it.
"She's no one." He mumbled, swimming away from there questioning.
"She doesn't sound like no one." Bella pressed. When Carson wouldn't budge, she gave up and turned to Bliss.
"Apparently our little liar over there hasn't been at work everytime he goes out. He's been with his girlfriend!" Bliss giggled.
"You have a girlfriend?!" Bella gasped, outraged. She splashed him with the arm that wasn't holding Lila up. Hmmm. I'll teach her how to swim soon. Bonding time, you know.
"Never thought I'd see the day. I was beginning to think you were a little fruitier then you let on, boy." Joe whistled. Carson frowned.
"You thought I was gay?" He asked, clearly unhappy with this.
"What happened to watching our words, Sonny?" Harlie demanded, floating on her back.
Carson ignored her. "You really thought I was fruity?" He demanded.
Joe laughed. "Cool off, boy. I know you're not."Carson visibly relaxed.
"I want to meet this bitch." Del announced. Carson dunked her under water.She struggled, but finally got back up, furious.
"What was that for?" She growled.
"She's not a, " He glanced at Lila. "Female dog and watch it. Lila's here, remember?"
Del rolled her eyes. "I'm not blind." Carson sighed.
"Sonny, I wanna meet your girlfriend!" Lila cried after LuLu whispered something in her ear. Carson glared at his oldest sister.
"Did LuLu tell you to say that?" He asked.
"Nope." Lila responded, popping the 'p'"It's not cool to lie." He gave her a stern look. She put a smug smile on.
"It's not cool to hide secret girlfriends either." Lila answered, smugly. Carson's mouth flew open. He turned to glare at LuLu and Bella.
"She learns this stuff from you two." He gave them both 'Way to go' looks.
LuLu rolled her eyes and flashed him an angelic smile. "What are you talking about? We're angels. Can't you see our halo's?" She made a circle around her head with her hands.
I laughed at her pathetic attempt at innocence. She radiated mischeif.
"You're such a loser." Del laughed, splashing water at her. Bella pretended to be angry.
"Don't call her a loser, you," She glanced at Lila who was completely oblivious. "Not nice word."Del rolled her eyes.
"How hurtful.""It was supposed to be." Bella insisted. Del laughed.
Out of nowhere, Alice giggled.
"What?" Bella asked, curiously.
"Nothing, it's just the way you guys argue. It's like kindergarteners." She explained.
Rosie gasped as if she was insulted. "We kindergarteners take that offensively. Right Lila?"
"You're damn right." Lila nodded, looking serious.
It wasn't funny. I mean, she was six and she was cursing.
But we all burst out laughing.
