Emmett was the first to run through the door. He came to a stop in front of Bella and I cuddled up watching 'A Princess Bride'.We had just got up to the part where Buttercup discovered Westley was 'the man in black' when we were interrupted.Emmett looked like all his Christmases had come at once as he stood there grinning at us. He pointed at us and jumped up and down.
'OH MY GOD! I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS DAY FOR YEARS! I FINALLY GET TO TEASE EDDIE AS HE HAS USED LITTLE EDDIE! HAHAHA!'
'YOU HAD SEX! Alice had a vision of you two deciding and sex is radiating off your scent. Plus you two have sex hair! EDDIE GOT LAID!'
Rosalie came up behind and slapped his head.
'You're an idiot Emmet'.
'God my husband is such a child.'
'Yeah but they had sex!'
I glanced away from the arguing couple and saw the rest of the family there smiling; Alice bouncing up and down.
'I'm so happy for you guys.'
'You and Bella deserve one another.'
I smiled back at Alice. Emmett looked like something very important had just occurred to him.
'Hang on. Eddie had sex with Bellsy. Oh my god he is not a virgin. He finally scored.'
'What is it Emmett?'
'EDDIE IS NO LONGER A VIRGIN! WOOP-DE-DOOP! MY LITTLE BRO GOT LAID!'
'Now I can teach Eddie everything I know so he can please Bella the best he can. Male bonding time here we come.'
I was seriously embarrassed and wanted to kill Emmett. I actually just wanted a hole to appear and swallow Bella and I whole.I wouldn't leave Bella for anything. Carlisle came over to us and looked down at Bella's stomach.
'All healed I see?'
'All healed. There's no evidence at all.'
'Vampires power my dear.'
Bella giggled at Carlisle's words, smiling at Carlisle. I smiled at my father too, radiating with happiness that everything had worked out for the best.I turned to my love and noticed her brow was furrowed.
'Hang on, what's happening with Charlie?'
Suddenly everyone was sitting down, in couples, on the loveseats. I wondered how we would explain this to Bella.
'I mean I was gone for three days in Italy, came home, then went back to Italy and I know a vampire change takes three days,meaning I must have been gone another four days, and now I'm a vampire. What's the story?'
'Son I'll explain the story to Bella.'
I quickly nodded to Carlisle and leaned down and kissed Bella's forehead. Alice's eyes were full of sadness and the rest of the family seemed tense.Carlisle stood up and stood in the middle.
'You woke up after Italy and went to see Edward. He was scared he'd to move and leave you again so you two ran away to be together.Edward had never wanted to leave in the first place but had been forced to go with the rest of his family. We got rid of the note you wrote to Charlieand replaced it with another one saying you were running away. Esme, Charlie and I were looking for you until we got a phone call from Seattle policesaying a car had been found crashed into a tree with signs of a fire due a petrol leakage. The police discovered two bodies that were unidentifiable due to being burnt.However copies of jewellery you two are known to wear were found alongside plus some hair. Charlie identified you and I identified Edward.We've told the town we're going to stay with family in Alaska but will be back for the funeral as you are having a joint funeral.Charlie has been staying with friends and talking to Renee. He needs all the supports he can get as he's going through a difficult time.'
'Edward, Bella is full of self-hatred at the moment.'
Bella's head fell into her hands as Jasper's thoughts entered my mind. I hated seeing my love hurt like this. It was the only way to protect her father.If she had been changed eventually we would have faked our deaths anyway. I tried to remove Bella's hands away from her head but she refused to let go.I let out a soft groan. I couldn't stand the sight of Bella in despair so I pulled my love onto my lap and hugged her tightly, tucking her head into my neck andkissing her hair before resting my cheek on the top of her head.
'Bella I can feel the pain and hatred radiating off you, plus the hint that you slept with Edward.'
Bella finally glanced up and looked at Jasper. He winked at her and she weakly smiled back. Seeing another man, even though it was my brother,made me feel extremely jealous and I had to repress a growl.
'Someone's a bit touchy of their mate.'
I glared at Jasper then turned to look at my angel in my arms.
'Please don't hate yourself love.'
'Darling please don't hate yourself. None of this was your fault.'
'This wasn't her fault. Bella has to realise this.'
Bella looked at Esme and I looking her at her. She looked like she wanted to cry if she could. I was so worried about my angel.
'I'll be ok. Can I go and see Charlie tonight?'
'I don't think that's a good idea love.'
'I want to be able to say goodbye. I won't let him actually see me plus I can get a few items from my room.'
Carlisle came up and stood next his wife.
'Edward that will work. Esme and I were planning to see Charlie anyway, just to check on him.'
'That's a good idea. Go now, Esme and I will join you shortly and the others will continue packing.'
'Thank you for everything.'
'You're welcome dear.'
Bella turned to look at me. I moved slightly towards her and held my hand out, which to my delight Bella immediately took.
'Ready for this?'
'No but I need to this.'
I nodded then led Bella outside.
'Carlisle and Esme are going to see Charlie and speak to him. We can sit in your old bedroom and listen.'
Bella nodded then we started running in the direction of her human home in Forks. We ran in silence, me desperately wishing I could read Bella's mind.How was she reacting to the fact that she was thought to be dead and her father was suffering because I changed her into a vampire?We arrived at Charlie's and hid between some trees. I noticed we were standing near the place I committed the greatest blasphemy by telling my love I didn't want her.To my horror I noticed Bella shiver as she took in where we were. I squeezed her hand reassuringly. A few minutes later Carlisle and Esme arrived and knocked on the front door.
'We're going in Edward. Look after Bella.'
I held my breath and waited. The door opened and there stood Charlie. He looked broken and a mess. Bella's face fell when she took in what her father looked like.
'Carlisle and Esme. I wonder what they want. Probably want to see how I am. Nice of them considering their son has died too. Oh god why daughter?'
'Hello Carlisle, Esme. Would you like to come in?'
'Thank you Charlie.'
The three adults went inside and shut the door. Before Bella could do anything I picked Bella up and quickly ran then leapt into Bella's room.I hadn't been in her room since I removed the pictures and the presents from her 18th birthday, removing my existence.I needed Bella close to me so without saying a word I laid back on the bed and cradled Bella against my chest while we listened to the conversation downstairs.
'How can I help you two?'
'God he looks terrible.'
'We just wanted to see how you're doing before we leave.'
'When do you leave?'
'They need to be with family at this time. I owe Billy and Sue everything I have for looking after me. I'm a bit annoyed about how Jacob's acting.I couldn't believe I heard him say Bella was better off dead than with Edward. That bastard. I admit I wanted them to get together but after seeing him act like this, I'm glad they never did.'
I mentally growled at that mutt. At hearing Carlisle's declaration Bella looked up at me. I nodded at her to confirm this and caressed her soft cheek to comfort me.
'Oh I guess it's good that you're with family during this difficult time.'
I heard Esme let out a sob and could picture Carlisle wrapping his arm around his wife to comfort her. I heard Carlisle clear his throat.
'Charlie I feel this is my entire fault. If I had just stayed in Forks instead of deciding to go to LA and making Edward leave behind the woman he loved.If I had stayed, Bella and Edward wouldn't have run away together and sadly lost their lives.'
'Edward and Bella are happy now. I just feel sorry for Charlie. We've just taken away his daughter and he thinks she has died'.
'Carlisle, don't blame yourself. There is no one at blame. I just hope my little girl is happy with Edward.'
'I can't blame Edward for my girl's death. He obviously didn't want to leave and I've been told how devastated he was when they left Forks. I truly hope they are happy together.'
Charlie's words and thoughts made me smile. I noticed Bella looked like she wanted to run to her father so I held her even tighter and whispered loving words to calm my love.
'Are you ok with us leaving? We can stay.'
'It's fine. I have my friends here. I'll keep in touch and we can discuss the funeral. I agree they should have a joint funeral.'
'Edward we're wrapping up the conversation. You have to go.'
I moved, letting Bella know we had to move.
'We have to go love.'
Bella nodded and went around her room, taking possessions she wanted to keep hoping Charlie wouldn't notice they had disappeared.I swept Bella into my arms and jumped out of the window. We watched from afar as Carlisle and Esme embraced Charlie and turned to leave.Once Charlie was inside they hurried over to us. Esme pulled Bella into a hug.
'Are you all right darling?'
'I should be. Thank you for that.'
'You're welcome Bella.'
I took Bella's belongings from her and handed them to my parents.
'Can you take these back to the house? Bella and I will be back shortly.'
Carlisle and I made eye contact.
'Are you going to do it? Did you decide?
I nodded at Carlisle and could feel Bella's eyes on me. I mentally chuckled as I knew she was so observant.Carlisle and Esme hugged us both before running off back to the Cullen mansion.
'Well that was weird.'
I chuckled and smiled at Bella.
'Where are we going?'
'It's a surprise love.'
'I hate surprises and you know that.'
'You won't hate this one.'
