Edward was the first one to break the silence, “Bella?”
“Edward” I felt that we were being overly formal but, I didn’t know what else to say so I just stood there moot, as if someone had come and robbed me of my own tongue all my thought of possible outcomes, this was not one of them, I thought I’d get to tell him about her before they met, what if he wanted nothing to do with me or her, it would break her heart. I should have told him before we had come, I could tell this now, this was a disaster and my little girl was going to get hurt.
“Is she really my daughter?”
“Yes” had I suddenly become illiterate, all I could manage was one lousy syllable, how was that fair. I took a deep breath and continued, “This is Darcy, she is 5, she is our daughter, I’m sorry to spring this on you, I thought we’d have time to talk before she woke up. I’m sorry”
“Darcy, 5, daughter… Bella how could you not tell me I had a daughter?”
“I couldn’t find the right time to tell you.”
“She’s 5 BELLA, 5! How could you not take 5 minutes in all those years to call me up and tell me I had a daughter” He was starting to get angry and I could tell Darcy was getting upset.
“I’m sorry. Darcy, baby, why don’t you go and ask Aunty Alice where our room will be and take your bag up there?”
“But I want Daddy to take me”
Alice luckily stepped in for me as Edward just stood there staring at her, “Come on Darcy we can go put on one of your pretty dresses” the next bit she said in a whisper “so you can impress Daddy?”I felt like adding that by the sounds of it, she needed more than a dress to impress him, but I didn’t want to upset her further, I just smile encouragingly down at her. She glanced briefly at Edward and then returned to her gaze to Alice.
“Okay den Aunty Awice” she said as she jumped out of the car and grabbed her bag and ran into the house after Alice.
Everyone had quietly returned inside, leaving me and Edward in a deadly staring match on the drive way, I decided to break the silence this time, this was my fault.
“I’m sorry Edward, I know I should have told you, and I tried I honestly did, when I first found out when I was only about 5 months gone, I tried ringing you but your phone had been disconnected and I thought you’d changed number, Alice explained that you’d had your phone stolen, but I didn’t know at the time. And it broke me when I couldn’t get through to you, Charlie shipped me off to my mothers and after that I just didn’t know how to tell you. I didn’t want to screw up your life with the burden of having a child.”I felt like screaming at him to interrupt me, to say anything, but I just stopped talking, hoping he’d take the hint that he needed to say something. He just stood there looking bewildered.
“Bella..” I stood waiting he clearly wanted to say something, “Bella will you go inside please, I just need a moment to think” I nodded, and slowly started towards the house. I wasn’t sure whether to knock or just walk in so I was relieved when Jasper opened the door and beckoned me into the house.
“Your room is on the second floor, it’s the 3rd room to the left, the rest of them are all up there admiring Darcy, I thought I’d come and check on you two?”
“Okay, thanks, he said he needs a moment to think and that I should come inside.”
“Okay well I’ll go have a word with him, everything will be okay.”
I slowly walked up the stairs, towards the second floor, as I reached the top of the stairs, I instantly became aware of the other people in house, by the awwh’s , and giggles coming from my room, Darcy always knew how to make people love her. If only Edward to love her, that’s what she wanted, this was a mistake I felt myself thinking for the 100th time today, she’s too fragile she can’t handle this. Or was I just hiding behind her, was it me that wasn’t strong enough for this, wasn’t strong enough to look into his green eyes and not fall in love with him all over again, that is not what Darcy needed, she needed a strong mother who could look after her, not the crippled wreck she became at the very thought of Edward Cullen. This was mistake.
I slowly opened the door to the room and found Darcy twizzling on the bed for her audience, Esme looked up at me with a mixture of happiness and sadness in her eyes. I hadn’t only kept Darcy from him, I kept her from his whole family, and I could see now looking into Esme’s eyes that I was wrong, and the thought brought me close to the brink of tears, I quickly turned and left the room, in search of a bathroom. I gave up searching for the bathroom after opening two more doors and finding only more bedrooms, how big was this house, I sat on the floor my head in my hands and let a few tears escape before I heard the footsteps coming towards me, I quickly wiped away my tears and looked up. Esme had followed me out of the room and was now looking at me in confusion.
“What are you looking for dear?”
“The toilet, I can’t seem to find, so I gave up.”
“It can’t be your lack of directional skills that have caused you to cry, Bella, now why don’t you tell me what is really wrong?”
“I just feel so horrible, I never meant to keep Darcy from him, from any of you, it just happened, and as time went on I couldn’t bring myself to try and contact you, as I thought that too much time had passed. But looking into your eyes earlier I realised how horrible I had been, I have kept you from your granddaughter, I’m so sorry Esme, I never meant to cause anyone any pain. And know Darcy is going to get hurt because I left it so long and Edward doesn’t seem to want anything to do with her. This is all my fault” Was all I could stay before I was taken over by the aching in my heart and I ended up sobbing into the comforting arms of Esme, she stroked my back as she tried to tell me it was okay, it didn’t make the pain hurt any less.
