"Oh my God." I woke up to my husband groaning. I supressed a laugh. I knew he was going to have a nice hangover.
"I'll get you some asprin," I whispered. I climbed out of bed and went into the bathroom, where I grabbed two asprin and a glass of water. I went back into the bedroom where Edward was slowly getting into a sitting position.
"Here baby," I said quietly, handing him the pills and water. He swallowed greatfully and set the glass down. I caressed the side of his face and leaned down to kiss his forehead. "I'll order breakfast."
"Thank you," he muttered, covering his eyes with his arm.
I ordered breakfast and brought it into the temperary bedroom. I decided that Edward and I should watch his little performance while we ate.
"You are an angel," he told me when I walked in with the tray of food.
"You won't be thinking that after I show you what I did last night," I muttered.
"What did you say love?" Edward asked as I set the tray down on the bed.
"Oh nothing," I said nonchalantly.
I grabbed my camera and hooked it up to the T.V. I grabbed the remote and sat next to my husband. He put his arm around me and I cuddled into his side, laying my head on his side.
"Would you like some breakfast?" he asked me.
"No, I'm not hungry, but thanks. You eat up." He kissed the top of my head and then shoved a forkful of scrambled eggs into his mouth.
"What are we watching?"
"Oh, just something we did last night while you were very, very drunk," I smirked.
He groaned, all the while eggs flying out of his mouth. "What did I do?"
Bella pressed play on the remote. I immediately heard her beautiful laugh, but my smile was hidden by the horrifying video in front of me.
I was standing in front of Bella with her lacy pink leopard bra and panty set over my clothes. Bella turned the volume up on the T.V. and that was even more horrifying.
The video held a man that looked like me, but sounded nothing like me. Bella assured me that it was indeed me on the camera. I was...singing I guess you could call it, but it was slurred.
"I like big butts and I can not lie!" Oh my God, I actually turned around and shook my butt at her. I groaned and covered my face. This was beyond mortifying.
"You other brothers can't deny that when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face you get sprung!" Oh God, it went on! I couldn't listen to any more. I sounded like a dead fish on crack! And the dancing! I had no idea what sort of freaky dance moves I was cranking out at this point in the video!
Bella was laughing beside me. She was laughing so hard I'm suprised she didn't choke on her lack of oxygen.
"Shut it off," I moaned, plugging my ears. I looked over and saw my wife grinning from ear to ear as her eyes stayed on the T.V. "Bella!" I cried.
She said something by the way her lips moved, but I couldn't hear her. "What?" I asked, unplugging my ears and wincing as I heard myself continuing to sing.
"I said, stop being such a baby. This is hilarious!" she laughed. I rolled my eyes.
"This isn't hilarious, it's embarassing! I dancing in your panties, Bella! And pink nonetheless!"
"Lighten up!" she giggled. "Besides, I think you look sexy," she purred.
"Do you now?" I asked in my velvety voice that I knew made her weak. She shivered, but I knew she wasn't cold. "Let's turn this off, shall we?" I took the remote from her talented hands and shut the T.V. off. I took her face in my hands and kissed her.
"Edward," she moaned. "Breakfast tray...move," she muttered.
I quickly moved the tray onto the floor beside the bed and attacked her.
Around one o'clock, Edward and I were renting a car and heading down to Newport Beach. That was the plan for today; a nice, relaxing walk on the beach, soaking up the sun.
"I think we should get married every weekend, and have tons of honeymoons," I said dreamily.
"I agree, this car is amazing," Edward replied, running his hand over the steering wheel as he drove.
I laughed. Edward had gone all out on renting a car. He decided on a sleek Aston Martin Vanquish. I happened to know it was his dream car next to his precious Volvo, so he was living it up right now. I did have to admitt that this car was one hot car.
"I might have to buy me one of these when we get home."
"Edward," I warned. "You don't need it. We have three kids and you need to finish medical school. Maybe once we're settled. We're still very young."
He sighed. "I know, I know. Besides, I want you to go to school too, I've been thinking about that lately."
"You know we can't afford childcare," I pointed out.
He took my hand over the console. "I know, but once I get a steady job, or our children go off to school, whichever comes first, I want you to go to school so you can live out your dreams too, okay?"
"Actually, I think I've already started living out my dream," I told him.
"Really? And what would that be?" he asked.
"Well, two things. One, I've always wanted children and a husband who loves me for who I am. While it may have came a little earlier than I had intended, I wouldn't change it for the world." I smiled up at him and placed my free hand on my stomach. "Two, you know how I've wanted to write and publish a novel?" He nodded. "Well, I kind of already started it. I write while Lucy and Jack nap."
"Bella, that's great!" Edward smiled.
I nodded. "And so I was thinking that I could just keep writing while I'm staying at home, and once I go to school, I'll major in English. What I learn in college, I can correct in my novel."
"That sounds excellent, sweetheart. What is it about?"
"Um, a girl falling in love with a vampire. It came to me in a dream, and it's based off of us, actually."
"So I'm the sexy vampire lover?" he teased.
"Oh yes, you're a very sexy vampire," I smirked. He would be sexy in any form.
We arrived at the beach in twenty minutes. I carried our beach towel-we only used one because it's a really big one-and Edward carried the beach bag that contained sunscreen, food, water, our cell phones, and a book for me.
"Want to go for a swim?" Edward asked me as soon as our spot on the beach was set up.
"Yes please," I said, jumping up and grabbing his hand, pulling him up with me. He laughed and took off his shirt. I was stunned by his perfectly sculpted chest, even though I've seen it time and time again. I shook my head, trying to clear it. I took my shirt off, averting my eyes from Edward.
I heard a gasp as I shimmied out of my shorts. I looked up.
My wife had to be the most beautiful creature in this entire world, even if she said she was plain. Not to me she wasn't, and the bathing suit she currently wore didn't help me in believing her.
The suit was black. The bottoms were bikini bottoms that showed off her beautiful hips. The top was a halter, and quite frankly didn't hide her growing breasts very well. There was a strip of square and circle silver studs wrapping around the front, right under her breasts. She was stunning.
"What?" she asked, blushing quite a bit while crossing her arms over her chest. She was trying to hide herself.
"Don't cover yourself up," I whispered, gently pulling her arms away from her body. "You are so beautiful." I kissed her shoulder and took her hand. "Now let's go for a swim!"
She laughed at my abrupt change of tone and ran beside me. I ran into the water, splashing Bella while I ran through it.
"Edward!" she gasped, giggling.
Once I was deep enough, I plunged down into the water. My hand was still around Bella's, so she went down with me. Once I was fully wet, I popped back up to the surface. Bella appeared not a second after me.
"Edward Anthony Cullen, that was not funny!" she scolded, wagging a finger at me with a pout on her lucious lips.
"Isabella Marie Cullen, yes it was," I scolded back, wagging my finger at her.
We had a stare down for a couple of seconds before bursting out in laughter.
"I love you," she sighed after calming down.
"Does that mean I'm forgiven?" I teased, pulling her close to me. Her soft hands were spread across my chest.
"Only if you love me," she said, kissing my chest.
"Oh, I do love you. Very much."
"Well all right, you're forgiven," she sighed dramatically.
"Thank you," I laughed. "Now let's enjoy our afternoon on the beautiful beach."
We were cuddling in bed when my phone went off. I groaned but saw that it was Alice. Maybe my babies wanted to talk to me!
"Hey Alice, what's up?" I asked her.
"I'm so sorry Bella." She was sobbing. A thousand thoughts went through my brain. Was Lucy hurt? Was Jack hurt? Did I need to come home?
"Alice? Alice! What's going on?" I asked frantically. I was sitting straight up in bed and I could feel Edward's concerning gaze on me.
My whole world crumbled as this sunk in. I started sobbing. "I'm so sorry! Emmett got hurt and I turned my back for one minute and she's gone!" Alice cried. I couldn't say anything, I couldn't think about anything except that my daughter was missing.
Edward took the phone from me. "Alice, calm down. What happened?"
Alice must have told him because he went pale. "Okay, okay. Did you check everywhere? Are you sure she didn't just wander off?" His voice was so calm. How can he be so calm?
"Alice, I need you and the rest of the family to search around the aquarium and five miles around it. As soon as you do that, call me please. We'll go from there." Alice said something and Edward hung up.
"Bella," he whispered.
"She's gone!" I was hysterical.
"You don't know that. She could have found something that peaked her curiousity and wandered off. Alice will call me once they search the premisis. We just have to wait," he said in a soothing voice. He held me close to him while I cried into his bare chest.
"I want to go home," I told him through the tears.
"You don't know where she is. Why don't we wait until Alice calls?"
I was shaking my head while he said this. "Either way I'll want to go home. If she's safe, I'll want to know this for myself. I'll want to hug and kiss hold her close to me. If she's gone, I'll want to search for my baby." I choked on the last part.
He sighed. "Okay, I'll arrange a flight. Pack our things."
"Thank you," I said quietly.
He got up and went into the living area to buy tickets. I blindly packed our suitcases and double-checked every room to make sure we weren't leaving anything. I brought our suitcases to the entryway while Edward thanked the person on the phone.
"We leave in an hour. Let's get going," he told me. I nodded. He kissed my forehead, whispered he loved me, and grabbed our bags. I was too weak to carry anything, I was suprised I could walk.
Thirty minutes later, we had checked out of the hotel, made it through security at the airport, and checked our bags in. Edward's phone rang right before we could board the plane.
"Hello?" he answered. He started listening intently for a few moments. I could see that he was trying his hardest to stay composed. It wasn't good news then. Tears started forming in my eyes again.
"Call Charlie. Tell him to round up a search group and send out a nationwide amber alert. Bella and I will be home in four hours. Keep Jack entertained please," Edward instructed the person on the phone, who I'm assuming was Alice.
He hung up and looked at my wet face. "We need to get home," he said simply, and wrapped his arm around my waist.
We were about halfway home when the pilot's voice came over our heads.
"Attention passangers. There has just been an amber alert issued for a Miss Lucia Cullen. She has bronze hair, emerald green eyes, is about 3'4" tall and weighs about 46 pounds. She was last seen at the Port Angeles Aquarium wearing a purple shirt, jeans, and black Converse shoes. There are no suspects as of right now. If you have any information about the girl, please contact the Forks Washington police station. Thank you."
I was stunned. It was a reality check. My daughter was really gone.
I was bawling in no time. People were staring at me, but I couldn't control it.
"That's my baby!" I weeped, clutching Edward's shirt. "She's gone!"
"Miss?" I looked up and saw the elderly lady that took Edward and I's picture two days ago. "Oh, it's you. Bella?" she asked.
"That's me," I said weakly.
"You're baby is missing?" I nodded, not being able to speak about it. "Well then, I guess I'll have to get off this plane with you in Seattle and help you, dear."
"Eva, you don't have to," I sniffled.
"We want to." I turned and saw a younger woman, about thirty, stand up next to Eva. "I'm Heather, Eva's daughter. We want to help you find your daughter."
"Thank you so much," I whispered.
I sat up and talked with Eva and Heather for the rest of the flight. By the time we landed, the whole plane was coming with us to search for Lucy. I was amazed at all of the kind-hearted people that were on the flight. I would never be able to thank them enough.
"Come on, dear, let's go find your baby," Eva said from beside me. I nodded and got into the volvo.
I was determined. Eva talked me through everything and gave me the strength to find my baby girl. I had faith and hope.
We were going to find her, no matter what it took.
Hold on baby, mommy's coming.
Hold on baby, mommy's coming.
