Disclaimer: Twilight is not mine

Authors Note: Welcome back to everyone who is coming back to read the sequel to Without You and I welcome everyone who is just now joining us. Cool I sound like a TV show host. Anyway. You don't want to listen to me. You want to find out what happens.

As I layed in Edward's arms I felt him stiffen and then ask the question that I had been dreading since I had gotten up yesterday.

"Bella what are you wearing?" There was a smile on his face and I could tell that he was not mad, but he was definitely checking me out.

"Well, I didn't know what to wear to a club and so Richard picked out my clothes. He chose this." He frowned and stiffened again when I said Richard's name. Note to self don't mention Richard to Edward. Just then Alice came bounding down the stairs and picked me up and spun me around.

"I can't believe that you are like us. I am so sorry that I couldn't stop it. If there is anything that I could have done I would have done it." Before she had a chance to go on I put my finger on her mouth.

"Alice I know what happened was not your fault. I also know that if you could have done anything then you would have."

After I said this the rest of the Cullen's came down the stairs.

I was then giving life jeopardizing hugs from Jasper Rosalie and Esme. Then Rosalie slapped me.


"Never do that again, or I will do something worse then dye your hair." I knew that she was playing, but still that slapped hurt. Then she enveloped me into an even bigger hug then she had already given me.

"So what did you do about Darey?" Everyone looked at each other and then nodded.

"We have her chained in our basement."

"Chains. Why do you even own chains?"

Emmet quickly spoke up. "Well you see-"

"Emmet don't you dare."

"What she is going to find out eventually."

"I should hope not, and even if she did then I would rather from me then from hearing it from you."

"Fine." He had an evil glimmer in his eye and I knew that he would tell me later.

"Don't even think of it Emmet. No way am I going to leave her alone ever again." As if his statement was not enough, he pulled me to him and then kissed my hair. "Never again."

"What do you think her power is going to be?"

"I don't know. She had a lot of human traits that could have carried over." He smiled and then said, "Maybe even her clumsiness."

I groaned. "I would take almost anything, but that." Then I thought for a minute, now that I had changed I wore a smaller size, so my used to be very tight pants were a little small on me. "Can I change now?"

This drew everyone's attention to what I was wearing. Edward growled at Emmet and Jasper who were very much into what I was wearing. After guessing without to much trouble what they had done; Alice and Rosalie hit each of there respective partners.

"Sure." At this Edward picked me up and ran upstairs. After opening his door, he walked in and then dropped me on his sofa.

"We are going to have to by a bed." I felt Edward, more then saw him move.

"Why what are you planning to do with me?" I smiled and then felt that I might as well throw what Emmet said in his face.

"Well I was thinking of chaining you up so that I could safely go out with other guys and not worry about you killing them." His face drooped and he looked confused, and then when he saw that I was kidding a grin was on his face a second later.

"I am going to get you for that."

"Oh really. I would like to see you try."

"I don't try; I succeed."

"I think that someone is very full of themselves." Wow. Even when we were in the height of our relationship we would never play like this.

A second later there was a knock on the door.

"Come in." It was Carlisle.

"Your father is up and he wants to speak to you. You had better change; don't want to give him a heart attack." I looked down and realized that I hadn't changed yet.

"Oh. I guess that I will do that. I'll see him in a minute. Where is he?"

"He is downstairs, in the only other bedroom that is furnished, besides the ones that we use. It is towards the back of the house. Edward will show you." He closed the door and then I heard him walk away.

I quickly walked into the closet, pulled out a t-shirt and sweat pants. Then I walked to the bathroom. Closing the door, I looked at myself in the mirror. I hadn't changed too much.

My stomach was flatter and curves were a lot fuller. My face was more defined, and my hair was shinier then it usually was.

The thing that hadn't changed was my eyes. They were still brown. Great now even though I was like the Cullen's, I was still different. After somehow managing to get the corset off and then the pants, I changed.

When I walked out of the bathroom I heard that Carlisle and Edward were arguing.

"Are you sure that she should see Charlie. She hasn't fed yet. She is not in control of her strength. She does not know what she is capable of."

"I am confident in Bella's ability. Even if you were to take her hunting, how would we explain that to Charlie? I could see that going over well. Charlie, I am afraid that your daughter has to go hunting or else she will kill you."

"Edward it would be best if she saw him now. Then you can take her hunting."

"Don't worry Edward; I am not hungry. In fact all I want to do is see Charlie. I guess that one of the things that passed over was my dislike for blood, so that I have a better tolerance, but just to be safe stay close. I don't want to tempt myself."

He nodded his agreement and then took my hand. We walked down the stairs and then turned down the hallway. We reached a doorway and then Edward reached over to the handle.

As he turned it, I took a deep breath. How was I going to explain to Charlie about what happened?

AN2: So what do you think? I really like this chapter and it was longer then a lot of the other chapters in Without You. Tell me, continue.
