"Yes, I'm in love with Isabella Swan," Edward smiled, and everyone else was now too. I already loved Bella like a daughter, and Edward was in love with her. It was wonderful he had finally found someone.
"Edward that's wonderful to hear," I said running over, and hugging him.
He dropped his head a little then, "Well I'm not sure if it is wonderful," he sighed.
"Why would you think that?"
"Esme how bad is it for a human to have a vampire fall in love with you. Let alone one that your blood calls to," he whispered.
"Don't think like that it will all be fine," I tried to soothe him.
He walked over to the door then, "I'm going to go think about this alone for awhile," he spoke, and turned toward the door. 'Please come back soon,' I thought. He nodded, and ran out of the house.
I jolted up on the bed realizing I had fallen asleep reading; I hadn't slept well last night, or the night before. I looked at the clock it read four o'clock in the afternoon; I had slept for a while. I sighed putting the bookmark in the book, and climbing off the bed. It took me a while to think right, and when my thoughts were coherent they drifted back to what happened at the Cullen's.
I knew that Edward couldn't have gotten there that quickly. No human could have so that meant that he was something nonhuman. Just then I remember something Jacob had told me a long time ago. We had been just sitting around and he was telling me about the legends of the Quileute's.
He had said that his grandfather Ephraim Black had made a treaty with the cold ones or vampires. The treaty was to keep them off their land so they didn't hunt there. Jacob said that they weren't dangerous, because they only drank animal blood. The name of those vampires had been the Cullen's, and Carlisle was the name of the leader.
I gasp as the thought ran through my mind. The Cullen's couldn't be… I couldn't bring myself to think it, could they? Nothing really added up, but the names. But I knew that I wasn't afraid of any of them. They had given me no reason to fear them. They were nice, trustworthy people. They were all trying to help me.
Telling the truth they were the closed I've had to a real family even when my mom was here they were on the verge of divorce. So it didn't matter even if they were something nonhuman they were still wonderful people. But I couldn't just assume it I had to ask them. But that wasn't something that could be brought up in a normal conversation. "I wanted to ask you are you all vampires?" Yes that would go over well.
But did it really matter what they were? They were kinder to me then my father or my best friend. So for now I would let it go. I would find out eventually but I would not dwell on what they were or weren't.
I then decided to figure out something else. Why was Charlie so worried about when my leg would be better? I mean it was like he actually cared though I had figured out through the years that he was a very good actor when he wanted to be. There was no reason for him to care about my leg. He had to be planning something, but what was it? He hadn't hit me after school on Friday and not when I got back today.
I also hadn't seen Jacob for quite a while not that I minded. So it could be something to do with him, but I doubted that Charlie would go through the trouble of being nice to me for that. So it had to be something other than that. The problem was that Charlie would think these things out and I would have no idea what he was planning till it happened. I sighed and decided to give up on trying to figure out what it was.
I went down stairs and made myself a sandwich for lunch. Once I was done I threw the paper plate away. I had done all my homework Friday so I decided to do some laundry. I looked at the clock it was six so I decided to start dinner. I made some meatloaf as quick as possible and made some green beans to go with it. Charlie walked in the door as I set the food on the table.
"Hey Bells," he called, "I got some fish to put in the freezer," he told me as he came tromping through the kitchen.
"Okay" I said grabbing the fish putting them in bags and placing them in the freezer quickly.
Charlie grabbed a plate and sat down. "So what did you do today?" he asked.
"I read, threw in some laundry, and made dinner" I replied sitting down, "Did you have a good time with Billy?" I asked trying to get the focus off me.
"It was fine we went down to the Clearwater's for lunch and Harry made his fish fry" he said and took a bit of meatloaf. "This is really good Bells" he commented and kept on eating.
"Thanks" I muttered and fixed my plate. It was quit for awhile till Charlie stood up.
"Bella were going to Seattle on Friday night or after you get your splint off" he informed me and put his plate in the sink, grabbed a beer, and went into the living room. I finished my food and put the leftovers away. I washed the dishes quickly. Then went to my room, got my toiletries, and took as quick shower. I put on my pajamas and turned on my alarm. I laid down wishing for no nightmares, for at least tonight.
It was dark now as I looked around the meadow. I had just sat here for hours trying to figure out the pros and cons of what could happen. I stood and decided it was time to leave. I took off running but I really wasn't sure where I was going. When I finally stopped running I found myself outside of Bella's house.
I was so confused I hadn't even thought about coming here. I thought about turning around and leaving but my body wouldn't let me. I sighed and climbed up to her window; looking in quickly to make sure she was asleep. As I opened the window I couldn't help but feel disgusted with myself for this. I knew she had gone through so many thinks and now I was sneaking into her room at night; was I really that low?
I knew the answer to that. Yes, whatever it took to see her and keep her safe I would do it. Even if all it was was getting to watch her sleep it meant she was safe for that moment and she was happy. I saw her turn slightly in her bed as she mumbled something incoherent.
I saw a rocking chair in the corner of the room and sat in it as I watched her. I sat there for a while till I heard her say something. "I'll ask mom" he mumbled and tossed in her bed making her face me. "Edward" she said. I was about to jump out of the chair and run hoping she would only think it was a dream, or maybe a nightmare was correct. But when I looked at her face she was still asleep. She was dreaming of me?
"Edward, thank you" she mumbled and a small smile appeared on her face. I smiled happy that I could make her smile. After that she didn't talk the rest of the night.
At two o'clock I decided it was time to go home. I climbed out of her room and closed the window.
I ran home quickly to be met by Jasper. "Edward are okay?" he asked sensing my mood, seeing I was happy, and smiled.
"Yea I'm great" I told him smiling.
"So I'm taking that you don't think it's a bad thing you love her anymore" he guessed.
"Close I still think it's dangerous for her but I don't believe it's a bad thing."
"Well it's nice to see you happy. What happened?" he questioned.
"Well I thought out the pros and cons and then I went to her house and climbed in her window…" he cut me off then.
"What wait a second you snuck into her room?" he stared at me wide eyed.
Sigh "Yes, may I continue?" I asked and he nodded. "I was watching her sleep and she said my name."
"Why did she say your name?"
"I really don't know but after she said that she said 'Edward, thank you' so I think it could have been about me holding her the other night" I shrugged.
She had said his name, and he had snuck into her room? It was hard to think of Edward sneaking into some ones house. But Edward was probably right about why she said his name; unless she loved him to and with everything she has went through I doubted that. When Bella was here I had kept track of her emotions she would change form happy to sad very quickly and I didn't know the reason behind it.
What I found odd was when she saw Edward after that night, even if she was extremely sad, she was happy again. Though when she was happy she also felt uncomfortable like she wasn't used to it. But from what I had heard happened to Bella and her feelings it didn't seem that she was happy very often. I looked at Edward watching him as he went through my thoughts.
"Jasper I want to be able to help her" he told me running his hands through his hair, "but it seems I can't even do that. She wasn't hurt from what I could tell. It's just I want to keep her safe what kind of man am I if I can't do that much for he!"
"What? Wait a second you said she wasn't hurt?" he nodded. "But didn't Charlie hurt her after she got back from the hospital?" he nodded again trying to figure out where I was going with this. "Then why wouldn't he hurt her now? Did you see anything in his thoughts about why or if he was just pretending for something bigger?"
He stood there for a second "I'll look into his thoughts if he has anything planned but I wasn't looking into his thoughts tonight" he admitted.
"We could check with Alice but it might not do much good since she has never even meet Charlie. So she could probably only look into Bella's future" I pondered.
He sighed "I can go to her house this morning when Charlie wakes up and see if anything is going on." Edward turned then and went back up to his room.
I went back up to my room and changed quickly waiting for four o'clock when Charlie would probably be getting up so I could see what was going on. Till then I laid on my leather couch letting the minutes tick by to see what was going on so I could help Bella. When it was finally four o'clock I got off the couch and took off to Bella's house.
When I got there Charlie was up and was going to be leaving in about thirty minutes from his thought and he decided to make a phone call. I listened in his mind so I could hear the whole conversation.
"Hello, its Charlie."
"Hello, I've been waiting to hear from you. When will you be able to bring her down to Seattle?"
"Don't worry about it she told me Friday or Saturday this week her leg should be healed so after that I can bring her down."
"Good I'll call you later and tell you where to drop her off and once you do that I'll pay you the money then you can come get her later in the morning"
"Sounds good I've got to get to work now bye" he said and hung up the phone.
I was furious to say the least. He deserved to die now but I controlled myself and turned and ran from the house quickly to my home. When I got there Alice hadn't seen the vision yet because no one was furious like I was.
"Woo, Edward what's the matter?" Jasper asked sensing my mood.
"Everyone get down here now it's important!" I said through clenched teeth. Everyone was down there quickly as they watched quietly waiting for me to say something. "He's going to sell her!" I growled. Everyone stayed quiet and waited for me to elaborate.
"Charlie, "I sneered his name, " is planning on selling Bella to someone for a night in Seattle after she gets her splint off this week" I growled out then sadness flowed through me. "What do we do Carlisle?" I gasped try into stop from sobbing.
"We need to think of some different way to help her" he said his voice somber.
The alarm clock beeped I got up and dressed quickly. I ate a bowl of cereal and grabbed the keys to my truck. I walked out the door quickly moving to my truck. I glanced over and I saw a silver Volvo in the driveway with Edward leaning casually against side of it. When I saw him a bright smile crossed my face and my heart beat picked up though I didn't know why and I went over to talk to him.
"Why don't you ride with me today?" he asked me with a crocked smile.
"Sure" I told him and he walked over and opened the door for me causing me to blush slightly. "Thanks" I said and he nodded as I climbed in and closed the door after me. He walked over to the other side of the car and got in then and pulled quickly out of the driveway.
