Chapter 9: The Impossible Turned Possible

I was in my room reading and Bella was in her room, also reading. The rest of the family had gone on a hunting trip and would be back later on today. Bella and I had hunted yesterday so there was no need for us to hunt. I had not heard any of Bella's thoughts for about three hours and I assumed that was because she had her shield up.

Just as I was getting up to change the CD that had finished in my CD player I was trapped in something like a vision but it was of the past. I had not seen such a thing except only when Bella had a nightmare and was dreaming of her time as a slave.

The dream was so vivid.'There she was in a dark room like cell and there she lay bruised and battered on the cell floor. Men came in and once again beat her over and over again'. I was frozen as I watched her dream helpless as they hurt her again and again. I felt the rage build inside of me willing my body to move to get her out of this nightmare but still it went on worse and worse as the monsters touched her in filthy ways. I was filled with disgusted and rage at what I saw in what they had done to her in her past.

Suddenly I was released from her nightmare as I heard her scream out in anguish. I was in her room in half a second. She was on her bed her hands in tight fists at her sides and her face pained. I went to comfort her but I could not get closer for there was a barer and recognized that it was her shield and I could not get to her. So I tried to calm her with words, "Bella, it's all right now. They're not going to hurt you ever again..." I kept trying to comfort her. She managed to calm down enough to bring her shield down and when I breathed in heavily with relief I stopped as venom slowly pooled in my mouth, I moved closer to Bella, "Bella, do you smell that?"

She took a deep breath and her eyes widened. "It smells like... blood."

She jumped of the bed and turned around and there on the bed was a small but differently blood patch. Bella quickly moved to the mirror and turned her back to the mirror and looked. There on her pants was another blood spot. "Impossible! Edward this is just..."

I had no words for what I had seen. Then I heard it. A quiet but steady heart beat. How can a vampire get her period? How can a vampire have a heart beat? Is that not impossible as she had said? I knew that Bella was special but this is just incredible.

"Bella, listen."

She stopped and listened, "a heart beat?"

"Yes, your heart beat."

"Mine? But that's..."

"Impossible? Well I guess its part of the blood thing..."

"Oh... um... I got to change..."

Bella ran into her cupboard and came out with clean pants and underwear and race into her bathroom. I looked to her bed and stripped the quilt from the bed and turned towards the bathroom door, "Bella I'm just going to wash your quilt. Call if you need me."

"Ok," Bella whispered, trying to find her voice. I sped down stairs to the laundry. I put the quilt in the washing machine and turned it on then quickly went back up to Bella's room. Bella came out of the bathroom, "Edward we have to go to the shops right now."

"I don't think that's a good idea. You have not been around humans..."

"All right Edward you go down and get me some period pads and tampons," she said glaring at me.

"Hmm. You promise that you will hold your breath the whole way?"

"Yeah, yeah now can we get this over with?"

We got in my car and drove to the shops in town. When we parked she started dragging me around the shopping centre. Finally we found the right section she picked out the packets and put it into the basket. She then moved down the aisle and we happened to pass the chocolate which she headed down. "Bella what are you doing?"

"Getting something"

"You do realise that I really doubt that you're going to like this stuff."

"You never know. I just want to try." She said simply and I just rolled my eyes and followed her around the store. Bella not only got chocolate but also ice-cream and strawberries. We finally got to the checkout and to find out that the person new Bella.

We put all of the things on the check out and looked up to the cashier. She was a tall blond girl with tanned skin and vibrant blue eyes. "Oh, Bella you got better. I'm so glad. I'm sorry about your parents," she said sadly. Her name tag said 'Sarah'

"Thanks Sarah. Yeah I'm still not the best but I'm getting there," Bella said giving her a small smile. We walked out of the store and went back to the car. Bella let out the remainder of her breath that she held and slummed against the seat.

When we got home Bella took the tampons out and ran up stairs. In a matter of seconds she was back with the shopping bag on her lap on the lounge. I went over and sat next to her, "Bella do you really think this is a good idea?"

"What's it going to hurt?" She said picking up the chocolate bar and biting into it. I waited for her to spit it out but it never came. I looked to her shocked.

There she was still eating it. "How can you eat that?"

"It's tastes good thank you very much."

I got up and put a movie in and soon the rest of the family came home. Emmet was first in the door when he heard the Transformers movie playing he ran into the house and suddenly stopped died in his tracks frozen with a confused and grossed out face on, "BELLS! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"

Bella looked up from the TV still holding one of her manly half eaten chocolate in her hand, "Eating. What else would it look like?" She said casually.

By that time the rest of the family had entered the house all with confused faces on. Bella and I looked at each other,'I guess we got to tell them about that little discovery that we made about me?' Bella thought to me.

' Yep, do you want to do it or do you want me to tell them? '

' Can you tell them? I don ' t really want to do it. '

"I guess we should all sit down. How about we go to the table? Then I'll explain," I said. The family all moved to the dining room table were we did all the important family meetings and such. Carlisle sat at the head with Esme on his right and I on his left with Bella next to me and Alice next to her and so on.

"So Edward what do you have to say?" Carlisle asked looking between Bella and I.

"Well today Bella had a nightmare and before anyone says anything let me continue," I said stopping all the thoughts in the process, "she fell asleep and when she woke up... she," this was going to be harder then I had first thought, "...she..."

I looked to Bella to help me out, "I had my period," she blurted out all of a sudden. The room was silent literally especially for me, not a thought was said in the room. Complete and utter silence but it only lasted a second because then the silence became full yelling thoughts. The loudest was from Rosalie. She had connected the dots instantly. If Bella's normal body functions had been 'unfrozen' to say the least then Bella could then maybe be able to have a child and Rosalie was not aloud that opportunity when she was change and this made her jealous. Rosalie glared at Bella and her thoughts became crueller.

"Rosalie," Bella snapped and a growl started to build in her chest.

"Well it's true. You come here with all you flashy gifts and then you become more human and now you will be able to get something that we have wanted-no longed for. You get to have the child that I would never get. You're lucky." Rosalie said sharply glaring at Bella.

Bella looked deep into Rosalie's eyes and then said, "When I came back home the girls would talk about their dreams of what they would call their children... They had it all planed out and I couldn't say anything because that dream was brutally ripped away from me. But that was not my only dream that was ripped away...My dream was that my husband would be my first... that I could say to him that I gave all of myself to him and that I fort to keep myself to be only his...I fort but I did not succeed... over and over again I did not succeed... From the first time they...they touched me...I knew that... that my dreams were over. I couldn't have children when I was human Rosalie. I never got the chance to even think that I might be able to because I already knew. You had a chance to have a child even if you didn't... you still could have but when I was human I couldn't...I didn't have a choice..." she had zoned out with what she was saying but once again she looked into Rosalie's eyes with even more fire and said, "Rosalie I am not lucky."

Rosalie's glare softened and she looked away from Bella's gaze. The mood in the room was sad and sober and all that could be heard was our breathing and Bella's light heart beat. Eventually Carlisle spoke breaking the silence, "Bella, I guess it would be possible for you to have a child since your body would be able to develop the child but we would have no idea what would happen. It could end up being that even though your normal cycle has begun you body might not be able to properly care for the child."

"I know Carlisle. But I don't understand what happened. Why does it start now?"

"Maybe it had started in the beginning when you were first changed but it was smaller things internally and when you had a nightmare you became very emotional and the coursed you hormones that were all ready shifting to speed up and you period happened."

"Why did it happen to Bella?" asked Alice curiously.

"Maybe it was the influenza. It seemed different than others."

"Have they found a cure?" I asked.

"They are getting there but there are some that get better on their own but most don't."

The conversation went on like that for a bit longer just asking Carlisle about the influenza. After that we left the table and Bella and I headed back to the lounge room where we finished watching Transformers.

Many things happened that day that I did not understand or even comprehend but all things happen for a reason but that reason I didn't know at that time but someday everything will become clear to me but for now all I had were mysteries.
