I was driving through the city of Voronezh, Russia. That was all I seemed to do. Drive. Except for the rare occasions where I would have to hunt, which I wasn’t doing as much as I should be. At the moment my eyes were black - coal black. My last hunt was three weeks ago, and now my thirst was becoming more uncomfortable. Although, part of me liked the aching burn at the back of my throat. It was something to distract myself with, to try and keep under control.
Although there was never a single second that went by that I didn’t think of her. Every time I closed my eyes, I could see her smiling at me in perfect detail. The exact shade of her striking milk chocolate eyes as she looked at me. The beautiful pink flooding to her cheeks as she blushed, standing out on her milky coloured skin.
Sometimes I’d let my mind wonder to that one night before her birthday. I was such an idiot to risk her life like that. Thankfully I didn’t harm her, although I couldn’t say the same for the pillows. When Jasper had nearly killed her and I’d made the decision to leave, I had realised it would be a much harder task of making her believe that I didn’t love her anymore. But she believed me.
You... don’t... want me?
The words she said cut me every time I thought of them. How could she believe me after all the times I had said that I loved her? And, even after that special night we spent together, she believed me.
It was times like this that part of me was glad I was halfway across the world from her. If I was only minutes away, nothing would stop me from knocking on her door and begging her for forgiveness. But no, I couldn’t think like that. She had to have a normal, human life. Without me.
I looked out of the window and saw the people as they walked down the street. There was an old looking man sitting on a park bench reading a newspaper. Because of my vampire vision I could clearly read the front page of the paper.
Was that the date? I thought. I’d have to contact Carlisle soon, although all I wanted to do was forget everything. But I owed it to them.
I found the nearest parking space and parked the Volvo. I looked over to the passenger seat where my phone was lying. As I picked it up I couldn’t help but remember all the times that she sat in this very seat. I tried to shake it off as I switched the phone on.
As I looked at the screen it said I had 2 missed calls. I sighed when I saw that one was from Carlisle and the other was Emmett. Then I saw that I had an answer phone message.
I eyebrows scrunched together when I thought of who it might be. No one ever left a message on my phone unless it was an emergency...
I pressed the select button and waited for the message.
“Edward, it’s Emmett....Listen, we’ve got an emergency back home...Can you please ring us urgently?” He sounded more frightened than I had ever heard him before. Something must be really wrong. I looked at the screen again. The message was dated just over a week ago. I quickly dialled Emmett’s cell phone number. He answered on the first ring.
“Edward, I’ll pass you onto Carlisle,” he said before I could get a word in.
“Edward?” Carlisle asked. His voice sounded exhausted. Although I knew that was impossible.
“Carlisle, what’s the emergency? I just got a message from Emmett saying it was urgent,” I asked, unsure.
“Edward, where are you?” he asked carefully.
“I’m sitting in the car...What’s going on Carlisle?” I demanded.
“Edward, I need you to come to Forks as soon as possible-” he started, but I interrupted.
“Carlisle!” I shouted. “I told everyone to never go back there!”
“Edward, its Bella,” he tried to say calmly.
Bella? What had happened? Was this the emergency?
“What about Bella?” I whispered.
“Edward, when we left...none of us knew, but...” he seemed unwilling to say it, whatever it was.
“Just say it, Carlisle,” I said, impatient.
“She’s pregnant,” he admitted.
For a moment I thought I hadn’t heard him right. She was pregnant? I had wanted her to have a normal human life. But...she was pregnant. My mind struggled to work. She had found someone so quickly? I bet it was that Mike Newton. I mentally growled his name. But what if it wasn’t? Who was the father? And why had she found my family?
“Who’s the father?” I asked quietly.
“What?” Carlisle asked confused.
“Who’s the father?” I hissed.
“Edward...you are,” he said gently.
I was the father...I was the father. No, that was impossible. My mind immediately went to Rosalie, and how, if that were possible, she would have found a way by now.
“Impossible...” I whispered.
“Hang on a second,” he said. “Sorry, I didn’t want Bella to hear,” he confessed a second later.
“She’s there?” I gasped.
“She is,” he said, but there was something in his voice that I couldn’t detect.
“What is it?” I asked.
“Edward...she’s in very bad shape. The...fetus is growing too quickly, and is already stronger than she is,” he started.
“Well, get it out!” I yelled down at phone without thinking.
“I tried, Edward,” he whispered. “Rosalie is helping Bella to protect it...and so are Emmett and Esme.”
“Carlisle...you’re sure it’s mine?” I asked. Although I knew from what he was describing that this wasn’t a normal pregnancy.
“I’m afraid so, Edward. I’ve never seen anything like this before,” he said. She was pregnant. And not only that, it was mine. In the background I heard someone whimpering.
“Is that her?” I asked in a broken whisper.
“Yes, that’s her...The fetus is kicking her from the inside again...it’s already broken two of her ribs.”
Already broken two of her ribs? Carlisle was expecting more.
“She hasn’t been able to eat anything and keep it down for a while. I’m feeding her intravenously at the moment. I just hope it helps,” he said.
“Carlisle, I’m coming back as soon as possible. I’m in Russia at the moment. Please keep me notified of any changes,” I asked desperately.
“I will, Edward. And hurry. I honestly don’t know how much longer she will last. I’m trying my best, you know that,” he whispered.
“Thank you, Carlisle,” I said as I pressed the end button and started the car.
Luckily, there was a sign just as I came off the road pointing to an airport. All that ran through my mind was how it was such a mistake to leave her. If I hadn’t, maybe I could have convinced her to get rid of that thing before she had time to get attached to it. Which raised the question, how could she get attached to that thing? It was killing her!
It was my fault. My entire fault. I should have kept to my boundaries that night. If I did, she wouldn’t be like this. All I could do was hope that she was still alive when I returned home.
