"Tada!" Alice said when she came out of her room in her pink dress.

"Oh!" I clapped my hands to my face, "You look very pretty Alice. Happy Birthday sweetie." I carried her to my room and placed her on the chair, "Now I have to do your hair." I grabbed a comb from the drawer, Alice made a face. I knew she didn't like getting her hair done.

Anthony came grumbling into the room, he wore his old ripped jeans and his dirty red T-shirt.

I sighed, "Anthony didn't I tell you to change, the party for your little sister starts in half an hour. Please go get ready quick." He looked at his clothes he was wearing and scowled, "Anthony please, those are dirty. There are new ones on the bed."

He beamed when he heard 'new clothes' and ran his way to the bathroom. He was pretty quick for an eight year old but of course his father was a werewolf.

Ten minutes later Anthony came hopping into the room with his new clothes, "There mommy?" He said still beaming. "I like it, TAHNK YOU!" He half screamed.

I smiled, "You are very welcome my darling," I got Alice down from the chair, "There for you too. Now don't get dirty OK."

She and Anthony ran down the stairs happily.

I sighed and fell back to the bed. Minutes later Jacob walked in beaming through the door, "Tired already?"

"Its not easy getting two little kids changed you know." I said sitting up and kissing Jake.

The doorbell rang and I went downstairs to open the door, Charlie and a few other guests like Quill and his wife Beatriz, Angela and Ben with their daughter Robin, Jessica with Ronald and their son Chris, Mike and Hillary with their twins Becky and Brian, they all came in carrying presents for Alice.

"Hey everyone!" I said greeting everyone as they walked into the door.

"Hey Bella," Angela said holding Robin by the arm.

"Where is the birthday girl?" Mike asked holding his giant box of a present looking around for Alice.

"Here I am!" Chimed in Alice. Hugging everyone. "What did you get me?" She asked happily.

"You will have to wait and see." Mike said placing the present on the table. Alice frowned, Mike laughed, "Be patient," He said and made his way out to the backyard smelling the barbecue.

"The party is out here, Jake is cooking some ribs right now." I said and sank into the chairs.


Everyone left around ten. Bella's child, Alice, I chuckled at the name, had fallen asleep in Bella lap. Jacob took Alice up the stairs and tucked her in her bed.

I had bought Alice a little stuffed animal earlier in the day, when I saw that it was her birthday, and I decided I would sneak it into her room when everyone was asleep.

"Good night." I heard Bella's smooth tranquil voice murmur to her child.

I heard the door close, "Good night." I heard him whisper to their son, Anthony.

"Good night Anthony," Bella murmured like before.

Another door closed. I sighed, feeling annoyed with myself.

"I'll go clean up downstairs, I'm not tired anymore, I'll see you in the morning." Bella said to him.

"I'll help you." He said.

Bella chuckled, "No go to sleep."

"OK," He said, What a great day today. I heard him think, I scoffed, it wasn't a great day for me.

I couldn't pronounce his name in my thoughts, that would just hurt me to think that a werewolf has my Bella. My enemy.

Seconds later Bella walked out of the house and sat on the plastic chairs, and stared at the sky. For a long while I stared at her, she didn't look different, she looked older and more mature, with her curves in the right places. Her big brown eyes that I used to melt in gazing at the moon, her dark brown hair long down to her back, her full lips in a smile.

I sighed, all I could do was watch her from the trees, just like I had done for three days, I went once in a while to the motel I was staying in, but just to shower and change or when Bella was out.

I heard Bella sigh, then murmur to my surprise, "Edward."

I jumped stunned that she was thinking of me. But why would she? She hated me the first last time she saw me...maybe coming here wasn't a mistake.

I waited a while longer and Bella sighed one more time, "Edward...why?"

Why what?

I crouched down, as I did a twig snapped, and Bella jumped, "Shoot." I muttered to myself.

"Who's there," Bella whispered, getting up, "Show yourself..or I will shoot." She did have a gun, I chuckled as if a silly bullet would hurt a vampire.

I grumbled, should I? Or should I just stay hidden? But then Bella will call Jacob and that will be worse he would kill me.

I sighed and stepped out into the moons light.

Bella gasped, "Edward."
