Previously: "Yes I'm fine but how did you get here so fast? You just said you were down stairs" and when she said this all the thoughts in the house stopped.
I just stared at her a moment, and took a deep breath as her scent assaulted me. "I'm just a fast runner," I lied smoothly.
"But I saw you on the couch when I took the step," she accused.
I smiled at her trying something else, "I was walking up the stairs when you fell Bella."
"No you weren't you were on the couch," she said hostile.
"Bella did you sleep well?" Esme asked stopping Bella's questions… for now.
"Fine," she said it was obviously a lie. So that must mean she had a nightmare, but she just wasn't talking in her sleep this time. She looked at me from the corner of her eye, and I noticed that I hadn't let go of her yet. I released her quickly; not wanting to make her uncomfortable, and she wobbled slightly finding her balance. I saw her eyes glance to the clock quickly. "What day is it?" she asked sounding frightened.
"It's Sunday morning," Esme answered.
"Thank you I'll get dressed then you can take me home when you want," She said turning as I watched her walk back into Alice's room. When I turned back around my family was watching me.
I walked back to Alice's room feeling Edward's eyes on my back. I had seen him on the couch when I had taken that step. So, how had he gotten there so quickly? It didn't matter how fast of a runner he was he couldn't have gotten from the couch to the top step that quickly. I got dressed as quick as possible, and checked to see if the bruise was almost gone. The bruise was yellowish and diapering, but I put some makeup over it just in case. I brushed my teeth, and put my hair up in a ponytail. I began gathering my things, and my mind floated back to what had happened on the stairs.
Edward shouldn't have been able to grab me before I hit that step. I should have fallen down those stairs, but I didn't. I stopped thinking about it and put my things I had gathered into my bag. I adjusted the crutches, and I walked to the door letting out a small sigh, and opened it. I took a step outside the door, and saw someone standing there. I turned quickly Edward was there leaning casually against the wall.
He opened his mouth, and shut it quickly. "Edward, can I ask you something?" I asked using my chance before he could say something. He nodded "How did you get to me so quick? I should have fallen down those stairs, and I saw you on the couch when I took that step," I demanded. He smiled at me, and moved from his place on the wall to stand closer to me.
"That would be very dangerous for you to know that piece of information," he whispered his smile widening, but I knew the warning was real.
"I need to know how you did that."
"No, you just need to know my family will do the best we can to keep you safe," he whispered leaning forward, and his smile vanished.
"But…. But," I started, but couldn't finish the thought. He smiled crookedly at me before turning on his heel, and walking down the hall.
I turned then, and went down the stairs carefully trying not to fall again. I made it down without even tripping, and Carlisle walked up to me. "Bella I wanted to let you know your leg should be better soon. I believe it will be done healing in a week or so," he smiled at me.
"Thank you Carlisle," I smiled at him.
"Bella," Alice called dancing down the stairs, "do you really have to leave?" she pouted.
"Unfortunately," I mumbled under my breath then answered, "Yes or Charlie will be wondering where I am."
"Fine," she sighed, "let's go," she said grabbing the keys to the BMW, and handed them to Rose as she walked up next to her. "Bye, everyone" I called, and Esme came up, and hugged me. "You're welcome back anytime Bella," she whispered to me I nodded to her, "Thanks Esme," I told her.
"Goodbye, Bella," Jasper said as he smiled at me.
Emmett then came up, and picked me up in a big bear hug, "Emmett - can't - breathe," I gasp out a little.
"Sorry Bella," he smiled apologetically.
Carlisle came up, and gave me a small hug, and pulled back, "Bella it was nice to have you visit, and you need to come back to the hospital in a week okay?"
"Sure Carlisle," I promised. Charlie should let me go to the hospital so that everything seemed normal.
I walked out of the house, and climbed into Rose's BMW. The drive to my house was silent we both seemed to be deep in thought the whole way. "Goodbye Bella," she said as I got out of the car.
"Goodbye Rose," I called back to her. Walking to the door as she drove down the street; I took a deep breath, and opened the door.
"Hey Bells," Charlie called.
"Hey Dad," I called back half cringing not knowing how he was going to act today. I walked to the living room, and found Charlie sitting there watching the game.
"How was your time at the Cullen's?" he asked.
"It was great I had a lot of fun," I told him cautiously.
"That's great I'm glad you had fun, and did you find out about your leg?"
"Carlisle said I need to go to the hospital in a week my leg should be better by then," I answered a little shocked it was almost like he cared.
"Good and I already made breakfast, and I'm going fishing with Billy this afternoon, so don't worry about lunch. All you have to do is make dinner the rest of the day you can do what you want," he told me as he stood up, and got his fishing gear.
"Thanks," I said a little unsure.
"You're welcome see you later Bells," he waved walking out the door.
For a minute I just stood there not believing that he hadn't done anything. I then rushed to the window as fast as I could, and saw the cruiser was gone. I let out a sigh, and went up to my room. I saw 'Wuthering Heights', but I decided to turn my old computer on, and see if I had any emails from my mom.
My computer turned on slowly, and when I finally got my email up there was an email from my mom.
I'm so glad to hear that you're doing well, and I'm doing great. Phil has been practicing a lot, and we just bought a house in Jacksonville, Florida. I'm sure you will love it. I would really like it if you would come down, and see me and Phil sometime soon. It's been so long since you've been to see us. Hope your having a good day I love you baby
I smiled, and hit reply.
I'm not sure when I'll be able to come see you anytime soon, but I'll ask Charlie. I'm so happy that you got a house you love mom. My day has been fine I just got back from spending the last two nights at a friend's house. They are a great family. Tell Phil I said hi, and I love you too mom.
I hit send, and turned off my computer. I grabbed my book back up, and started reading again, and decided to let what had this morning leave my thoughts.
I laid on the black leather couch in my room. Bella had left a while ago, and Rosalie was back so I turned on my music seeing that nothing was wrong in her thoughts. I didn't really focus on the lyrics just happy it drowned out the thoughts a bit better.
I didn't want to think of Bella, but my mind wouldn't let me. I had raced to save her thinking of only her, and not what my family would think. Was it really possible that I liked her; that I could possibly love her? I heard Alice gasp down stairs at her vision.
My eyes the eyes of a monster stained a deep crimson by human blood; Bella lying broken in my arms, drained, paler than ever, and lifeless.
The other vision
Bella standing next to me my arm wrapped around her waist; her eyes the crimson eyes of a newborn and her skin as pale as mine.
I raced down the stairs at vampire speed to the living room. "No Alice neither of those will happen," I shouted.
"Edward those are the only two options for her now. It's one, or the other there's not another choice," she whispered.
"What if I left?" I asked trying to think of some way to save her.
"Do you think you can leave?" Alice asked.
I nodded, and though the thought of leaving hurt it would be best for her. "Yes," I whispered.
"Edward, please don't leave," Esme pleaded.
"I'm sorr-," I began, but was cut off by Alice, "Don't worry Esme I don't see him going anywhere," she smiled.
"But Alice if I don't leave I will either end up killing her, or she'll be damned by me," I whispered.
"No Edward you can't leave Rose, and I love her too," I stared at her going through her words over, and over again in my mine.
"Too?" I choked out.
"Edward, are you really that stupid?" Rose asked then spoke again before I could say anything, "You don't even notice that you fell in love with her?"
"In love with Bella?" Esme asked full of joy.
"Yes he's in love with Bella," Alice answered.
"Edward is this true?" Carlisle asked his thoughts hectic not sure whether to be happy that I had finally found someone, or to be worried for Bella, because a vampire fell in love with her.
I thought about his question for a moment. The night that Bella was crying I was so worried about her hurting. It hurt seeing her in pain all I wanted to do was find some way to make her feel better. When I had held her to me it felt right having her close to me. When I had run my hand through her hair and brushed the tears from her face it seemed so natural I hardly gave it a thought.
I knew my answer then "Yes, I'm in love with Isabella Swan." I smiled and they all smiled back at me; they loved Bella too just not the way I did.
