"I don't know but I have such faith in you. You delivered Renesmee as a human. You're a vampire. Do you have any idea what kind of power you hold there? Besides, you have everyone here to help you, including me, Bella. I am going to be there for you every step of the way."
Bella bit her lip as she looked at me when I wiped those tears away from her face. "Thank you, Edward."
"Bella, you obviously can't go back to school."
As she nodded her head at me, she pressed her face into the middle of my chest, and I let her cry. She needed to let it out and I couldn't believe it. I was getting a second chance to show Bella what kind of man I could be. What was important was maybe this was my chance of showing her what kind of father I could be.
It had been about an hour since Bella told me about her pregnancy, and I was still in shock. Something of this magnitude was just so hard to absorb. I had told Renesmee to stay at her grandparents' for a bit because I didn't know how she would react when she found out Bella and I had been intimate, and that I had gotten her mother pregnant - again. Yeah, things were a bit messy. But Bella's news wasn't the only thing that had shocked me. No, her news wasn't what worried me to the point that made my knees weak.
It was Rose.
After Bella and I had been enjoying the fact that she was going to have a baby, which would give me a second chance at making our relationship work, Emmett ran up the stairs, and he frightened both Bella and myself.
"Edward, call Carlisle. I left my phone…"
"Emmett, what's wrong?"
"No questions… just call him and tell him to bring his medical bag, too."
Before I had a chance to ask, Emmett left us again by running back downstairs.
"Edward, what's going on?"
"Bella, I don't know," I said as I pulled out my phone, dialing Carlisle's number.
I frowned as I watched Carlisle checking over Rosalie. I was sitting on the bed, next to her, gripping her hand tightly. She was lying back on the bed, her head and back supported by as many pillows as I could find, yet she still looked uncomfortable. I was worried and so confused. Everything had been fine. Even her throwing up hadn't phased me. Hell, that was a lie, but I pretended I was okay. I should have called Carlisle right then but I was so stupid. When I noticed the belly bump protruding from her shirt, I immediately told Edward to call Carlisle.
"Well, well, isn't this something?"
"What… what is it?" I panicked as I looked down at my wife, still holding her hand tightly, before letting my eyes drift back to Carlisle.
"It seems to me that Rosalie's pregnant," Carlisle noted as he looked at Rosalie before looking back at me. Rose just lay there, with a confused little smile on her face. "Rose, it's going to be okay. I want to run some tests on you the next few hours, okay? We're going to make you feel better, all right?"
"O-Okay," Rosalie replied weakly and she turned to me. "A baby, Emmett… our baby."
I could see the happiness shining inside of her eyes right before she closed them, and I was happy with her, but I was also very worried. I didn't want her in any pain because she was pregnant with our baby. I couldn't help but wonder what would happen during the duration of her pregnancy. I was usually the strong one but I felt so weak… weak as fuck right now.
"Carlisle, just… make sure she's okay. I can't lose her," I said with a frown as I looked over at him.
"I know, Emmett. Jasper and I have been working on a project together. Basically, it'll allow us to x-ray a vampire or anything immortal like a werewolf such as Jacob and Leah. Jasper's on his way bringing it over. I promise you that she's going to be okay."
"Are you sure?"
When he said nothing, I frowned, and I watched Rosalie open her eyes.
"Rose, I want to take a few fluid samples," Carlisle began as he looked at Rosalie. "We both know a needle won't do anything. I'm going to have to bite you so that –"
"You have to bite her?" I gasped.
"Emmett," Carlisle scolded. "I need to have some fluid to test, and hopefully her venom will give me some clues. If she were still human, I would be taking a blood sample, but she's not, so this is the next best thing. I'm sorry, this is new to me, too, and this is the only way I know how to take care of her."
I frowned like a stubborn child. "Let me do it if you're going to do it."
"All right," Carlisle said as he got out the supplies he would need to take Rosalie's 'blood'.
It had been a few hours since Carlisle had done tests on both Rose and me. I was in shock because we were the only ones that had gotten pregnant. I was so happy for Emmett and Rosalie, though. I really was. With me already having been pregnant, I could help out with the pregnancies. Rosalie and I were lying down on the elongated couch. I was laying on one end and she was laying against the other. She looked much better.
"Bella, I'm so scared right now. Being pregnant..."
"Rose, it will be OK. I can't say it will be pain-free, but I can assure you that the pain will be worth the end result."
"I'm not worried about the pain, Bella," Rose whispered. "I'm scared because I'm so happy right now. But what if this is all some kind of sick joke? What if something happens to the baby? What if I can't carry the baby to term?" Rose's frame shook from her soft sobs.
"Why are you so worried?" I asked.
"Because this isn't the first time this has happened to me. When I had been raped by my fiancé as a human and his friends, one of them had impregnated me. Carlisle realized this as he was turning me, from the nutrients in my blood. He was able to save me but the baby never made it, Bella. It wasn't like I had had time to process it all, but I think that's what made my revenge so intense. I was so angry that not only had those awful men violated my body, but they gave me the one thing I really wanted, then took it back right away. Since it ended right then, I made Carlisle promise never to mention it again. It's something I don't like to talk about to anyone – not even Emmett." Rose turned her face from me, like she was ashamed.
I nodded my head. "I'm really sorry, Rose. I… I had no idea. I am surprised Emmett doesn't know any of this - you two are so close - and I am so sorry you've had to have this always in the back of your mind, and not let us help you."
"Bella, it's all right," she said with a small smile on her face. "I hate to say this, but if that baby had survived, I do not even want to imagine what kind of person I would have been like. Royce had destroyed me that night when he and his friends beat and raped me."
I blinked back the tears, my emotions getting the better of me. "I am just glad that we're pregnant together, now. I get to help you through this tough time."
I felt bad for all the bad things that had happened to Rosalie in the past, but I was so excited that she was now going to get something that she'd wanted for so long. I loved seeing the bright smile on her face when she thought about the baby. Seriously, this was so unbelievable - vampires getting pregnant! Carlisle had his theories, and they did make sense. Carlisle theorized that when we got changed, some of our unfertilized eggs were still in our bodies, and even though we "died" going through our transformation, somehow our eggs stayed unaffected, although lying dormant. Something in the blood we drank must have interacted with whatever was holding the eggs, and it released them to be fertilized. Carlisle said he had never heard of anything like this, but his new x-ray machine seemed to bear this out. He was keeping a journal of notes, and he hoped to consult with other vampires who might be able to make sense of it all. But who cared how it happened - it did happen, and it was a miracle. Unbelievably cliché, but what other reason could there be? For me, I didn't care what the reason was. Everything about my life had been an anomaly. First, Edward can't hear my thoughts, and now, my eggs never changed during my transformation… wasn't that something?
"I am really glad that we are going through this together," Rosalie said with a smile as she looked at me. "How's Edward taking the news of you being pregnant with his child?"
"I thought he was going to be freaking out, to be honest, but, no. Edward's so excited. Every time he looks at me or even touches my belly, he has this big goofy grin on his face," I said with a laugh as I simply shook my head. "It really soothes me and makes me more relaxed."
"I wish Emmett was like that but… he's so worried," Rosalie said with a frown as she looked down to the bump, tears filling her eyes. "I don't think he wants this baby, Bella. What if I'm not pretty enough for him now that I am pregnant with his child?"
"Are you kidding? You're a knockout being pregnant. I wish I could look as good as you."
"You do," she said with a sheepish smile on her face. "I just want everything to go all right. I don't want anything bad to happen to Emmett, this baby, or me."
A few days had passed since I had found out about Bella's and Rose's pregnancies. Everyone knew they were pregnant except Landon, Renesmee, and Riley, and it was now time to tell them. Well, Jake, Sam, and the rest of the wolves didn't know about it, either, but that was for another time. Renesmee deserved to know what was going on , and so did Landon, since he also had been with Bella all this time.
"How do you think she'll handle being a big sister?"
"I… I don't know but I don't want her to hate me, Edward," Bella sighed as she laid on her side, her shirt riding up to reveal the baby bump.
I groaned at the sight of that beautiful bump, along with the glow that was written across her features. "Bella, you are so beautiful."
When I saw her cheeks flush, I was ecstatic. I guess that was one more strange and wonderful thing that happened because of this miracle pregnancy. I would have to ask Carlisle more about that.
"I've missed those blushing cheeks," I said with a grin as I moved over to her, kneeling on my knees on the floor in front of her, and I cupped her face as she wiggled to pull her shirt down. "You're more radiant than ever."
"You're such a flirt. You're trying to be inside of me again," Bella teased.
"Maybe," I joked backed with a wiggle of my eyebrows.
"Ew, that's something I don't need to hear," Renesmee groaned as she walked into the bedroom and she shook her head in complete disgust. "You aren't going to have sex right now, are you? Oh, please tell me I didn't walk in when my parents were about to get it on. I'm so traumatized and… and… oh… ew…!"
My eyes were wide as saucers, while Bella was giggling. Was that supposed to be funny?
"Nessie, sweetheart, we were not about to have sex," Bella said with a smile on her face. "But we do need to talk to you about something."
"You need to stop jumping to conclusions, babe. One of these days it's going to get you into a shit load of trouble," Landon said with a shake of his head and he frowned when I gave him a look for his language. "Should I leave?"
"No, I want you here. Can you two sit down?"
When they sat down, I could see how nervous the two of them looked.
Oh God, are they going to give us the sex talk? This is so embarrassing… I'm going to die out of mortification!
Damnit, Nessie's Dad is creeping me out by looking at me. I haven't even thought about having sex with her. We just started dating…
I laughed out loud at their thoughts. I knew I shouldn't eavesdrop but it was hilarious.
"You two worry too much for teenagers," I said with a shake of my head as I helped Bella sit up, the sheet sliding over her belly. "We are not going to give you the sex talk… although, that would be a good idea."
"Mom, stop him!" Nessie cried out as she covered her face with her hands. "Sex isn't on my mind right now."
"Good," I said with a chuckle as I listened to Bella's laughter. "But there's something we need to talk to you both about. It's going to affect the whole family."
"Aw, are we moving again? I like it here and Riley likes my friend, Amethyst, and she likes him too."
"Damnit, Nessie!" Landon groaned as he shook his head in horror. "Shut your trap."
"Don't "Nessie" me, Landon. I swear… I can still kick your butt even if we are dating."
"Children, do you two need a timeout?"
When I heard their groan, I turned to Bella, and I grasped her hand gently. "Do you want to tell them or me?"
"I will," she said as she moved back against the pillow. "There's something you need to know, you two, and I am going to need all the help all I can get. Rosalie and I are, actually, because, well… she's in the same predicament as me. The thing is… Rosalie and I are both… well, pregnant."
"Oh my God… now, I have the mental image of you two banging like rabbits," Nessie groaned as she looked at us and sighed. "But… you two have been away from each other for years."
I was expecting anger, self-pity, jealousy, but this? I never expected this at all. Yeah, my daughter kept on surprising me over and over.
"This is exciting, Bella, but… I thought that vampires couldn't get pregnant. How is this even possible?" I could see Landon try to figure it out in his mind. Maybe he was hoping his mother would be able to get pregnant again, too?
"You can ask Carlisle that. I am tired of explaining that as I've done it five times today," Bella said with a shake of her head. "I am doing okay, but Rosalie… you guys, her pregnancy is going to be pretty hard if she doesn't have plenty of blood to keep this baby sated."
Renesmee and Landon stood up and Landon saluted her with a huge grin.
"We'll bring some for you too, mama," Nessie said quietly as she leaned down, placing a kiss on her cheek. She came over to me and gave me a huge smile, while wrapping her arms around my neck. She moved her mouth to my ear, tickling it as she whispered, "You better do it right this time, papa."
I was shocked by her words and as I watched her leave with Landon I sputtered my disbelief. "What the hell was that? How can she be so calm and collected about this?"
"I don't know. I think she gets it from you, Edward," Bella told me as she pulled me down on the bed, smiling up at me. "I am really glad you're here this time. I know you'll help me through this. Thank you."
"I'd do anything for you, Bella – anything," I whispered against her ear, kissing the side of her neck, and I stared at her with a huge smile on my face when I looked into her beautiful eyes. "You are my world just as much as our children are, too."
"I'm scared, though. I don't like that I feel so vulnerable right now but –"
"I know," I said as I pushed her shirt back up after pulling the sheet down. "I am going to be taking lots and lots of pictures of you, Bella."
She frowned as she shook her head. "I'm going to look awful in those pictures."
"No… you're not. You are so beautiful," I whispered as I sat above her, my legs on opposite sides of her, and I leaned down, cupping her face in my hands. "I like that you're carrying our child, and that I get to be here for this one. We'll be doing this together."
Bella smiled as she looked up at me. "Carlisle and Esme are going to have to withdraw everyone out of school, you know? I know you and Emmett won't be able to function without worrying to death. Alice, Jasper, Landon, and Nessie will be the same too."
"I'll tell Esme to go to the school Monday morning," I told her as I slid my fingers across her belly and I smiled at her. "Everything's going to be fine, Bella. I will definitely make sure of it. I can promise you that."
I woke up about twenty minutes ago and it wasn't so bad. With me being a vampire, I was able to handle the baby's movements. I was really excited when I saw that Carlisle had placed several packets of blood on my nightstand. What shocked me was that it was human blood – the one source of blood I never ever wanted to touch. When I killed Royce and his friends, I had vowed to myself to never drink it again. Then again, I couldn't even keep down any of the animal blood without gagging it back up.
"Rosie," Emmett whispered as he moved into the chair by the bed and he grasped my hands in his. "I'm trying to be strong for you but I… I feel so weak not being able to do anything."
"Baby, I'm okay. I really am," I told him as he squeezed my hands. "You've given me the most precious gift I could ever want. You don't know how long I've ached to be pregnant. I never thought –"
"I know, baby… me either," he whispered as he crawled into the bed beside me, pulling me close, burying his face into my neck. "I am going to make sure you'll be fully stocked on blood, love. I don't want you throwing up or in any type of pain."
I smiled at him. "So, I was talking to Carlisle, and he was thinking until the babies were born, we should leave Seattle for a little bit, just to be safe."
"Where would we go?"
"Well… Carlisle told me that the further we go, the better. He was thinking either Chicago or New York," I stated as I trailed my thumb across his fingers. "I want to go to Rochester, New York. It's where I'm from and Carlisle said he has a house there… big enough for everyone."
Emmett chuckled softly when he looked into my eyes. "Whatever you want, Rose. I'll get you whatever you want, or do anything for you. I hope you know that, too."
"You better keep your word on that," I teased as I looked at him with a grin. I felt that my eyes must be sparkling like diamonds, reflecting my unbelievable happiness. "I don't think that I have ever been this happy before. I blame you and I hope you know that."
As he laughed, he pulled me closer, sliding his hand under the blanket and resting it against my filled up inside my eyes. It was the first time that Emmett had really touched my pregnant belly. I knew he was scared but so was I. He had every right to be terrified because I was too. I was a vampire and I was pregnant with our baby – our first baby.
"You're crying," he frowned as he kissed my tears away. "Did I do something wrong?"
"No, no, it's not that," I sighed as I intertwined my fingers with his hand on my belly. "It's just… this is the first time you touched my belly. I… I like it."
Emmett smiled at me. "I'll touch you on more places than just your belly," he waggled his eyebrows. "Well, I will as long as you can handle anything that I can dish out."
I laughed as I brushed my lips against his, sighing when I felt him begin to deeper the kiss.
We were leaving and I was going to lose my mind. I finally met a girl that really meant something to me and I had to leave her. Nessie and Landon had just told me right before they left the house. Damnit, I didn't want to leave. When I stepped out the front door in the night, I bumped into something soft, and that's when I smelled her scent.
Strawberry mixed with peaches.
"Hi, Riley," Amethyst said with a sad smile as she looked at me. "I was just looking for you. I have some bad news."
I frowned. "What's that?"
"I just got news that my father got a transfer in New York and I'm moving," Amethyst said as a tear slid down her cheek and she looked down at the ground. "I was really looking forward to dancing the night away with you, too, but well… as my father says, we can't all get what we want."
I already didn't like her father. "Oh."
"Yeah, oh. And, oh, I was going to tell you something, too. We're moving also. This really sucks. Here we're just getting to know each other, and we're being split apart." I looked at Amethyst, and really cursed this bad timing. God, she was gorgeous. "Do you have an address where you're going to be moving or even a phone number? I really like you. When are you moving?"
"I don't leave until the end of the week but I can give you my number," she said as she grabbed my cold hand, writing my number with the pen she pulled from her pocket, scribbling it down on my palm. "You can call me whenever… and I'll be happy to hear your voice, Riley. You're not like most boys."
I smirked at her. "I know that I'm not like most boys you've met."
