Edward had been quite the whole drive, only speaking once to ask if Jacob had to use the restroom. I knew that he was thinking about everything that had happened over the last few years. I too had been thinking about it. But I was more so anticipating seeing everyone at last. So I was content just to sit in the car and hold Edwards hand while both he and I thought in silence.
I was anxious to see everyone, but Alice in particular. I missed her most of all. She was my best friend and even though I love Edward with all of my heart I found myself missing the “torture” that Alice had put me through during my human years.
We turned off the road and I knew that we were getting close. It was a long drive similar to the one at the house in Forks. Edward finally spoke trying to wake Renesmee and Jacob who were sleeping in the back seat. “Nessie. Jacob. We’re here.” Nessie whimpered slightly, a sign that she was not quite ready to be awake.
I smiled and slipped my hand out of Edwards and reached back to shake my daughter awake. “Come on little one…” Renesmee turned away from my hands gentle shake. “Don’t you want to see everyone?” I knew what to say to get her awake. “I know they’re waiting to see you.” That did it her eyes popped open and she shook Jake awake. As we pulled in front of a huge white house.
This house was larger than the house in Forks. But was roughly the same style there was a large porch with steps leading up to a gorgeous door. I didn’t have to guess that the whole family was being assembled by Alice, because I could hear them. At hearing her voice for the first time I couldn’t wait anymore. I looked over at Edward and smiled and then bounded for the steps. Alice beat me to the door and met me on the porch. We collided together grabbing each other into a tight hug.
“Oh Bella!” she practically screamed. “Oh I’ve missed you. Never stay away for so long again.” I wanted to say something like it’s not fun when someone just leaves huh…but I couldn’t. All I could think was that I was home. Finally Home.
“I missed you too Alice!” We were still embracing when I heard Edward approach from behind us.
“So glad I was missed…” he said in a sarcastic tone. Alice left me and through herself at Edward.
“I missed you too…” but she only hugged him until she spotted Renesmee and then ran to hug her. I wanted to rush in to see everyone else, but Edward came over and looked at me strangely.
He reached up and stroked my face. He leaned down to whisper in my ear, “Are you happy, love?” so that was it, I must have had the silliest smile on my face. I thought about my answer. Was I happy? Was I happy?
“Exceedingly.” Was my simple answer. Then he leaned in and kissed me quickly we followed as Alice walked up to the steps with Renesmee and opened the door. As soon as she opened the door I saw the whole family standing there. One part of my brain catalogued the room. It was as beautiful, if not more so than the outside of the house. It was decorated in the pale colors that I had become used to as the palate for the Cullen family. It was light and open, connected to create a great room that was three stories tall. Complete with the living room and a kitchen and dining room. One wall in the kitchen was glass with doors leading out to the back part of the porch. On the other wall a giant staircase lead to a landing one story above.
While a part of my mind was taking that all in the major part of it was studding the faces of my family. It seemed so long since I had scene any of them. Though I am sure they haven’t changed any I found myself re-memorizing their features. Carlisle looked like he always did, like a sun. Esme was as gorgeous as always even though she looked as if she would be on the brink of tears. She ran immediately for Edward and cried tearless sobs as she held him. Emmett greeted me first. Grabbing me into a bone crushing bear hug.
“I missed you little sister.” He said as he sat me down.
“I missed you too Emmett.” I said as I chuckled. Rosalie had gone strait for Renesmee. She came back now and gave me a hug. I was glad to see that time apart had no effect on the friendship that we had formed. Carlisle was next. He hugged me and said that he was glad we were back. Esme had finally relinquished her hold on Edward and had moved on to Renesmee. She came to me last and kissed me on the cheek and pulled me into another hug. Jasper was last simply hugging me and Renesmee and patting Edward on the back.
Alice grabbed my hand and pulled me into the living room. “So what have you been up to? It’s been forever.”
I laughed. “Alice we spoke nearly once a week.”
“It’s not the same Bella.” She said pulling me down on the couch. I smiled Renesmee sat on another couch that sat perpendicular to the one Alice and I sat on, with Rosalie and Esme. Emmett and Jasper stood ready to listen. “You told me, but not everyone else…what did you see? Who did you see? Details….”
“Okay, okay…” I said and launched into a full description of everything we saw. Renesmee popped in every now and then adding what she thought of something in particular. I looked over at Edward occasionally and he was leaning against the giant archway between the entryway and the great room smiling. He stood there with Carlisle they didn’t speak, but merely stood there listening. It seemed like I talked for ever. It wasn’t until I looked at my daughter to see her beginning to doze that I spoke up. “I think that’s enough for one day. One of us still needs to sleep.” I said pointing to my nodding daughter.
“Oh of course, how silly of us,” Esme said slightly embarrassed. I’ll show you to your rooms. Rose helped Renesmee up off the couch and guided her up the first set of stairs. Alice and Edward followed the rest of us up the stairs. Renesmee’s room was on the second floor at the end of the hallway. She was awake enough to take in the splendor that was her room. “This one belongs to you Ness.” Esme said softly.
“Oh grandma…” Renesmee said breathlessly. I felt Esme relax by my side. “It’s beautiful.” The room was every bit as big as the white bedroom in the house on Isle Esme. There was a large bed pushed up against the wall. On the north wall there was a huge window that looked over a sea of white snow. Walls were painted a light cream, accented by the brass bed and the purple bedding.
“Your aunts went shopping for you.” Esme said motioning to the closet on the south side of the room.
Renesmee ran over and the closet was packed full of beautiful clothes. “Aunt Alice, Aunt Rose. Thank you. They’re beautiful.”
Alice and Rose beamed. Then involuntarily Renesmee yawned. I walked over to her and took her by the arm and lead her to the bed. “Okay…enough…you need to go to sleep. You can discover your closet tomorrow.” I tucked her under the covers.
“Okay mom. I love you. Good night.”
“Good night sweetie.” I said leaning down to kiss her on the forehead.
Suddenly she sat upright, “Oh wait…what about Jacob?”
“We have him a place of course. He has his own apartment in the guest house.” Esme said gently. “I thought he would be more comfortable there.”
“Probably. Okay.” She said laying back down. “Night mom, night dad, night everyone.”
Everyone murmured goodnight and left the room. I turned the light out on my way out.
“She is just precious.” Rose said as she headed back downstairs to sit with Emmett.
“I went shopping for you too, Bella.” Alice said brightly. “Don’t worry you can thank me later.” She said before gliding quickly down the stairs.
“Your room is upstairs.” Esme said grabbing my hand as I sighed and took us up a spiral staircase on the other side of the hallway. I leaned into her side. “It’s good to have you back Bella. I’ve missed my newest daughter. Here we are.” She opened a door that was on the other end of the hall.
When we walked into the room I couldn’t believe it. It was larger than Renesmee’s room. It was painted in a light gold and draped with sheer fabric. There was a huge mahogany bed that occupied the center of the room. I recognized the familiar CD collection and sound system. The Window occupied one whole wall and looked over the mountains in the distance. “Oh Esme…” I sighed and let go of her hand.
“I’ll see you later.” She smiled and excused herself, smiling at Edward. He shut the door after his mother left the room and cam up and grabbed me by the waist.
“Welcome home Mrs. Cullen.”
Couldn’t help but smile, I still went weak in the knee’s when he called me that. But I tried not to be distracted. “What did she say to you?” I asked curiously.
He chuckled, “She said to not worry about anything.”
“It was something that Rosalie said earlier actually…” he paused smiling,
“And what is it that rose said earlier…” was he purposefully trying to be aggravating, I hadn’t heard anything that I thought was particularly worrying.
“She said they had taken care of everything…that the room was sound proof…so that I could…play my music…as much as I wanted.”
“Humm…Interesting.” I said and I reached up and touched his lips to mine. I felt him smile underneath my lips. “I don’t even know if I want to see the closet.”
“Oh come on it will be an adventure.” He said grabbing my hand and leading me toward the doors. I dropped Edward’s hand and walked into the room. The closet was only remotely smaller than my room back in Charlie’s house. “I’ll be right back. Jasper needs to talk to me. He sounds worried.”
“Okay.” I said slightly anxious.
“Don’t fret love, its more or likely nothing. I’ll be right back.” And with that he left. I wonder what would have Jasper worried. I would have to remember to ask Edward when he got back. I went back to inspecting the contents of our new closet. I was expecting the worst, however the clothes were acceptable. I opened several drawers and saw something that would have made me blush if I was human. I reached in and pulled out lingerie similar to what Alice had bought me before, was she so determined. I searched through the contents of the drawer and found one that I liked exceedingly well. It was similar to one I had worn when I was human on Isle Esme, surely Edward would remember. This one was Ice blue instead of black, and I quickly changed into it and looked at myself in the mirror studding the lines of it. Comparing it to what I remembered seeing before I was a vampire in this sort of thing. I must have been totally absorbed because suddenly I heard a soft chuckle behind me.
I froze immediately until I heard him speak. “Huh…” I relaxed. I hadn’t realized that Edward had come back. I must not have been listening. He walked up behind me and wrapped one arm around my waste. The other he brought up and moved my hair aside, skimming my neck and shoulders with his fingers before moving so that his nose skimmed my neck as he whispered in my ear, “I will have to thank my sister later.” Was all that was said before I spun around and captured his mouth with mine.
