Rating 5/5   Word Count 1502   Review this Chapter

It had taken a good 15 minutes for me to pull myself together and regain some composure, and a reassuring hug of Esme, as I walked into my room and was greeted by Alice, Carlisle and Darcy, the latter ran over to me and hugged me while whispering into my ear, “Mommy, I really like my grandma and granddad, what took you so long, I missed you.” That was all I needed to hear to make me realise I needed to sort things out with Edward.

Jasper returned to the room as Darcy was twirling around after deciding that the 5th dress she had tried on was the one she wanted to wear. He whispered something to Alice, and she in turn passed it along to Carlisle and Esme, I stood bewildered at what was being said, Alice then turned to Darcy with a coy look in her eye.

“Darcy, how would you like to go to the park with me, Jasper, grandma and granddad and feed the ducks?”

With this Darcy looked at me, eyes wide with excitement, “Oh Mommy please can I go pwease? I promise to be very good?”

“Of course you can darling” how could I refuse such an amazing response as that. I realised that this was probably a plan on Jasper and Alice’s side to try and make it easier for Edward and I to talk, without Darcy around, but I was thankful at least my Darcy was happy.

****

It was about an half an hour later that I waved goodbye to everyone, as they left for the park, I noticed that there was a car missing from the driveway and guessed Edward had decided to go for a drive. I shut the door, and walked back into the house, towards the kitchen, I really needed a coffee or I was going to fall asleep standing. I walked to the kettle, added water, and waited rather impatiently for it to boil. While I waited a grabbed a cup from the dishwasher and added a teaspoon of coffee from the coffee tub on the counter. As I heard the click of the kettle as it boiled, I walked over and poured the steaming water into the cup and inhaled the scent of the freshly brewed coffee and instantly felt myself wake up. I replaced the kettle, and went to the table with my coffee, I sat and closed my eyes while I let the steam from the coffee calm me, after about 10 minutes of this I was startled out of my retrieve as the front door opened. My eyes flashed open, onto the figure now stood in the door way. I visibly gulped as I prepared for the fight that was about to ensue.

To my surprise, Edward seemed calm, if that was the right word, he walked over to the table and took the seat opposite me, and I took a quick gulp of my coffee to stop myself from staring at him. I heard Edward clear his throat as if he was about to talk, and decided that it was my cue to look up from the black water I was intently staring at.

“I’m sorry for how I reacted earlier Bella, it was rude of me, and I was just shocked, which I am sure you can understand. I would like to discuss this calmly with you, as clearly there is much to discuss.”

“It was my fault, you don’t need to apologise, I shouldn’t have just sprung this on you, I should have given you some warning.”

“Well let’s forget about whose fault it is or isn’t, the fact of the matter is, we have a daughter together, and I’d very much like to find out about her.”

“You mean you don’t hate her, you actually want to get to know her?”

“Bella what gave you the absurd idea that I would hate her?”

“Just the way you reacted earlier I thought you didn’t want anything to do with her”

“No Bella, I was just shocked, and I didn’t know what or how to process what I was feeling, which is why I went on a drive to clear my head, so I could think clearly.”

“Well that is a relief.” I couldn’t help but smile here, his answering smile was beautiful, the way his eyes sparkled, no I must not get distracted by him, I’m here for my daughter, so I must stay focused.

“Bella tell me about her?”

“Well obviously her name is Darcy, her birthday is the 10th April, and she’s 5, she looks and acts like you! Which can be a pain at times, she definitely has your stubbornness” he smiled at this, so I carried on, clearly I was on the right lines of what he wanted to know. “She’s incredibly intelligent and is usually well behaved at school, although Jasper would be better at telling you about that being her teacher. She makes everyone love her, and she is the most amazing gift I have ever been given”

“Well...” Edward was interrupted by a loud and what seemed like an impatient knock at the door, confusion crossed Edwards face as I watched him walk over to the door, as he opened it, I couldn’t be sure but it seemed like a look of sheer horror crossed his face. What could be so horrible?

That’s when I heard the nasal voice “Oh Edward, I thought I would surprise, have you missed me?”

“Lauren, what are you doing here?” I knew I shouldn’t be eaves dropping and from it sounded like I was about to have my heart smashed into a million pieces, but that was my fault, I should have known he’d have a girlfriend, I was just some stupid girl he knew a long time ago. But the way he looked at me earlier, I felt like I was wrong, I felt like there was something still there between us.

“Oh babe, I couldn’t stay away, I missed you, are you not going to invite me in? I thought we could make this weekend special, if you get what I mean?” I didn’t need to see her face to understand the undercurrent of sexual desire coming from her. How could I have been so stupid? I needed to leave, if I didn’t I’d end up a wreck on the floor.

“Lauren this really isn’t a good time, you should have called.” Yeah so you could have got rid of me already. I can’t stand this any longer, I quickly ran from the room and up the two flights of stairs to my room.

I shoved Darcy’s things back into her case, I could faintly hear Lauren and Edward arguing downstairs but I didn’t want to listen I just wanted to go home. I rang the airline and booked myself and Darcy on the first plane home. This was a mistake.

I ran downstairs with the cases, and grabbed the keys to Jaspers car off the side; surely he wouldn’t mind dropping us off at the airport. As I turned Edward had stood up from Lauren and was looking at me with a puzzled look on his face.

“I just got a phone call from my mum, she needs me home, something is wrong with Phil, I have to go home, I’m sorry.” With that I ran out of the house and threw everything into the car, got in and pulled away. I had listened to wear the park was earlier when Darcy was questioning me about why I wouldn’t come and I promised I’d join her after a little while. It took about 10 minutes to get to the park. I ran over to Darcy, and the others and asked Jasper to drop us off at the airport, telling them the same lie I told Edward, something in Alice’s eyes made me question whether she believed me or not but she didn’t say anything so I started back towards the car. I had to promise Esme and Carlisle that we would visit again, but in my mind I didn’t care, I just wanted to get home.

****

It was around 11 hours later when I left the airport into the safety of my mom’s car, Darcy fell asleep almost instantly. I could tell my mom knew I wasn’t coping, but she didn’t once say anything when we arrived at my house an hour later I looked at her and she gave me a sympathetic hug.

“Mom, please can Darcy stay with you tonight, I just need some time to recuperate before she starts asking me questions”

“Of course she can darling, get some sleep, you look like you need it, Love you”

“Love you too mom”

I walked up to my door and let myself in and turned to wave as my mom as she drove away. I closed the door and finally let the darkness fall over me, as I fell to the floor in tears.
