The next week passed rather uneventfully, only talk about Alice's baby went around. Of course, our wedding was still a high, but we were really waiting for Alice to get that baby out! Tonight is Edward's bachelor party though, and we've decided that Esme, Rosalie, Alice, and I would stay home and just play some games with Lucy, Jack, and Danny while the guys went out drinking or whatever they had decided on doing. My bachelorette party would be the following Friday, and the wedding would be on Sunday, so that gave us Saturday to nurse hangovers. If we went out, that is. If Alice was home with her baby, we would go clubbing. If she was still pregnant or in the hospital with the baby, we really had no idea what we would do. Not that it mattered to me, I'd really rather not go clubbing.

"Bella?" Edward called from our bathroom.


"Can you come here for a minute?" he asked.

I wonder what he wanted. "Sure," I responded, getting up from our bed where I was reading a book. Lucy and Jack were taking a nap before the girls came, and Edward was getting ready to go out. "What did you need?"

He was standing in the bathroom in only jeans that hung low on his hips. I wanted to jump him, he looked so good. Those abs, strong arms, sexy V muscle...

"Bella?" His voice snapped me out of my ogling. I looked at his freshly shaven face and saw a smirk on his face. "Like what you see?"

I didn't respond, I just walked over to him, placed my arms around his neck, and kissed his waiting lips. His warm lips moved against mine eagerly, devouring me. His rock hard chest pressed against mine, and I really wanted to feel my skin against his, but he stopped me before I could get my shirt off.

"Bella," he breathed.

"Please," I begged.

"Not right now, baby, the guys are going to be here soon," he said, his thumb stroking my cheek. He chuckled as I pouted, leaning down to peck my lips before continuing. "Now, before you distracted me, I wanted your help on what shirt to wear," he gestured to the bathroom counter, where two polos lay. One was a light blue and the other was a bright pink.

"Um, neither," I said, leaving the bathroom to go to his closet. "Take off those pants," I ordered him as I looked for his dark wash jeans. I found them and made my way back to the bathroom, where Edward was standing, now just in his boxers. Man, he was going to kill me.

"This is so unfair," I muttered as I handed him his jeans. "Wear the pink one with those. I like you in pink, it shows that men can wear pink, because you are certainly a man," I whispered seductively, wrapping my arms around his waist as he finished pulling on a white t-shirt to go under his polo.

"Bella," he groaned, pulling away from me. He grabbed his polo and pulled it on as he walked out of the bathroom.

"I can't believe you're denying me sex," I said, walking into our bedroom where Edward was sitting on the edge of our bed, puttin on a pair of socks.

"Bella, we don't have time right now, otherwise you know I would," he told me.

"Well, what time are they coming?" I asked him, standing in front of him.

"Between fifteen and twenty minutes from now," he said.

"So...what do you want to do until then?" I asked nonchalantly, advancing on him.

"Bella," he warned.

I put my arms around his neck and leaned down to kiss him. His arms involuntarily went around my waist, pulling me closer. We crawled onto the bed and laid down together. I knew he wasn't going to give in, so I just stayed to kissing him.

"I love you," he whispered in my ear when I needed to breathe.

"I love you, too," I gasped.

He brought his lips back to mine and we kissed until I heard the front door open. I pulled away from Edward and sighed loudly. "Somebody's here," I frowned.

He laughed. "Love, don't look so down. I'l be back tonight, and I'll miss you the whole time."

"But you'll be drunk tonight," I pointed out.

"Then I'll make it up to you tomorrow," he promised. I gave him one last kiss and took his hand, helping him off the bed. We walked together down the stairs and saw that Esme and Carlisle were here. I guessed it was them because no other couple would have been that quiet walking into this house.

"Hi, Esme. Hi, Carlisle," I greeted them, hugging Esme.

"Hi, dear. How are you?" Esme asked.

"I'm great," I answered.

"Where are my grandchildren?" she smiled.

"Sleeping," Edward told her.


Just as we all sat down, Alice and Jasper walked in. Well, Jasper walked, Alice wobbled. She was the cutest pregnant woman I've ever seen, probably because she was so tiny.

"I hate this," was the first thing out of her mouth. "I can't move."

"But the ending product will be the greatest thing that's happened to you," I smiled cheekily, trying to cheer her up. "I would know."

"Not helping. Got any mayo?" she asked.

"Yep, it's in the kitchen. Bread's on the counter by the microwave," I told her. Alice's craving was mayo on wheat bread. Talk about nasty.

"That's just weird," Edward mumbled.

"Hey, I needed ketchup on macaroni and cheese," I reminded him.

"Yes, but some people eat that. How many people do you know that eat mayonnaise on bread, with no meat?"

"Fine. You win," I sighed. He smiled smugly.

"Emmett's here!" Emmett boomed from the doorway. I immediately slapped him and Rose followed when Danny started to cry from the noise.

"Ouch! Damn! What was that for?" he yelled.

"Emmett! Shut up!" Edward said. "There are kids sleeping!"

"Oooh," Emmett said, finally coming around.

"Daddy?" a voice called from the stairs. We all turned to find little Lucy standing at the bottom of the stairs, holding her pink blanket.

"Hey, pumpkin," Edward grinned. He went over and picked her up. "Did Uncle Emmett wake you up?"

She nodded and quietly said, "He's awful loud." I wanted to laugh at her trying to sound grown up.

"He is, isn't he?" Edward said, kissing her forehead. "I love you."

"Love you daddy."

"I've got to go now, be good for mommy, okay?"

"Okay," Lucy said in her naturally quiet voice.

Edward handed her to Esme so that he could come kiss me goodbye. "Bye love, I'll see you tonight."

"Don't do anything inappropriate please," I whispered.

"I love you," was all he said. Oh boy.

"I love you too. Please don't look at any other naked girls or worse, sleep with them," I begged.

"I promise. You're the only woman for me, sweetheart." He kissed me, lingering a bit until Emmett coughed loudly.

"We better get going," Jasper said. "Alice, don't hurt yourself, okay?" he asked her. She grumbled something that sounded like, "Jerk. He's not the one carrying this eight pound kid we made together." I silently laughed.

"Uncle Em!" Oh brother, my other child was awake. Jack and Lucy are so different I sometimes question that they're really twins. Lucy's so quiet and cuddly, while Jack is loud and aggressive, yet can be loving when he wants to be.

"Jack!" Emmett screamed, running towards him and picking him up.

"Okay, okay, chill. You're own son's trying to sleep," I scolded Emmett.

"Sorry. Hey Jack, I got to go now, you have fun," Emmett told Jack, nudging his head.

"Bye, Uncle Em!" Jack grinned.

"Does your actual father that helped create you get a hug goodbye?" Edward asked Jack.

"Bye daddy!" Jack said, running over to hug Edward's legs. "I love you!"

Edward picked Jack up and kissed the top of his head. "I love you, too, buddy. Be good for mommy," he warned.

"I will daddy," Jack said, eyes wide with innocence. Edward set him down and the guys went to leave.

"Finally, some quiet!" Rose sighed, plopping down on the couch with Danny.

"What should we do?" Esme asked.

"How about we just put in a movie for the kids and relax," I said. Everyone agreed and I put in Tarzan. We were about halfway through and Alice was in the bathroom when we heard a shriek.

"Alice, you okay?" I called out.

"Bella! My water broke!"


"Where are we going tonight?" I asked once Carlisle was on the road.

Emmett grinned. "Strip club."

"Oh no Emmett, I promised Bella no naked girls," I told him in a rush, trying to get out of it.

"Bro, you're not getting out of this one," he said smugly.

Well, crap. Who knows what's going to happen when I'm drunk and around a bunch of strippers.

Carlisle drove to the nearest strip club in Port Angeles. He and Jasper were going to be the designated drivers, Jasper because Alice could pop any minute and he shouldn't drunk in case Alice has her baby tonight, and Carlisle because he chooses not to drink.

"Alright, my brother, a round of drinks for us!" Emmett yelled, telling the bartender what he wanted. My dad and Jasper went and got a table, leaving me and Emmett at the bar. I looked around. The club was dark and loud, and there were about eight girls dancing around poles. I can't believe I was dragged here.

Emmett handed me a beer and as I continued to drink, I started to loosen up. I knew I was drunk when I let Emmett lead me to the strippers. Think, Edward. Bella. Bella, your fiance.

A pretty looking blonde winked at me and started dancing around her pole. I sat down on a chair nearby and guzzled my sixth beer while watching her. I was broke out of my gaze when I felt my phone vibrating in my pocket. I almost dropped it when I went to open it.

"Hello?" My voice sounded muffled.


"Bella! Baby, I miss you," I slurred. "You're so pretty."

"Where are you?"

"I'm at The Paradise baby, you should come visit me," I giggled.

"Behave, Edward," she said before hanging up. I went back to eyeing the hot blonde on the stage. She noticed my attention was on her again and she smiled while reaching for my hand. I downed the rest of my beer and took her hand.


I know I broke the rules of a bachlor party: never call any member of the party at any time of the night. But I needed to know where to find Jasper, because Alice was in labor.

He sounded drunk. And he was at a strip club. I was furious.

"Bella?" Rosalie asked softly from behind me.

"They took him to The Paradise, and he's drunk," I growled.

"Damn it. Emmett's fault, I'm sorry. He's going to get some serious punishment when he's sober," she glared.

"I've got to go get the boys. Esme will take Alice to the hospital, will you watch Jack and Lucy?" I asked.

"Of course. You knock some sense into that boy."

Rose went downstairs and told Esme what was going on while I kissed Jack and Lucy goodnight.

"Mommy loves you both. I have to get daddy and Uncle Jasper so Auntie Alice can have her baby. I'll see you in the morning, okay?"

"Okay, mommy. We love you too," Lucy said.

"Yeah, we love you!" Jack added.

"Good night, sleep tight," I started.

"Don't let the bed bugs bite," they finished together, giggling. I tucked them into the couch; they slept together on the couch when somebody was watching them. I kissed their foreheads and headed out to get my stupid fiance.

I reached The Paradise in ten minutes flat and stomped inside. I was on a mission: find Jasper, tell him to go to the hospital right away, and then find Edward and kill him.

Jasper and Carlisle were sitting at a table near the back of the club with Cokes in front of them. Clearly neither of them were drinking tonight, which was good.

"Bella, what are you doing here?" Carlisle asked once I reached the table.

"Jasper, take your car and go to the Forks hospital right away. Alice is in labor. Carlisle and I will take the boys home in my car," I said, getting right to the point.

"Oh my God."

"Jasper, breathe. It's okay, just get to the hospital," I urged him.

"Okay," he gulped. "I'm going." And he left the club running.

"Carlisle, where's Edward?" I asked.

"I have no idea. He's around here somewhere," Carlisle answered.

"Okay," I sighed. "You find Emmett and bring him to my car. I'll find Edward and meet you in the parking lot."

We broke up and I went off in search of Edward.

And boy, did I find him.

On stage with some blonde chick.

With only his pants on.

And she in only her bra and panties.

She was all over him, grinding into his body. By the looks of it, he was certainly enjoying it. His hands were all over her body, her hips, her breasts, her butt...and then he kissed her.

And he did it again.

They were using tounge.

I felt so much hurt, anger, rejection, fury, sadness, and so many other emotions that I just left him there, dancing on the pole with that slut.
