19 year old Bella Swan sat frozen in the driver seat of her car. She had been there for at least 20 minutes and every time she glanced up at the familiar house, the curtains twitched. She knew that Charlie had seen her and she wondered again for the millionth time why he hadn't come out to see her. Maybe he was waiting for her to make the first move. Sighing to herself, she pulled the keys from the ignition and opened her door. Making sure she didn't slip on the icy driveway. She opened the back door and unbuckled the straps that held in Hayden. Hayden whimpered as the cold air hit and he snuggled closer into her chest. Waiting until Hayden had drifted back off to sleep before getting out of the car, Bella tried to hold back the tears that threatened to spill as the love she felt for Hayden spread through her body. Walking slowly up the path, the front door opened and Charlie came into view.
"Bella," he said, relief flooding his voice. He looked ready to say something else until he noticed the small bundle in Bella's arms. He took Hayden from Bella's arms with a proud smile and followed her into the kitchen, where she dropped Hayden's nappy bag and her small suitcase. She turned to face Charlie.
"I'm sorry Dad," she finally said. He hugged Bella awkwardly and dropped a fatherly kiss on her forehead.
"You going to introduce us?" he asked gesturing to the gorgeous baby in his arms.
"Dad this is Hayden Edward Cullen. Hayden this is your grandpa," Bella introduced and then busied herself with making him a bottle.
"Why didn't you tell me Bells?" Charlie asked after a lengthy silence.
"I was scared. I didn't know what to do. I needed to get away from here. From him," Bella confessed as she shook the baby bottle. Handing the bottle over to Charlie, she settled in across the table from her father and her son. The silence grew longer as Bella got lost deep in thought.
"When was he born?" Charlie asked breaking the silence once again.
"Last week. Virginia Mason Hospital. 7 pounds 6 ounces," Bella explained.
"And who bought the new car?" Charlie asked, eyeing Bella suspiciously. The Toyota Corolla in the driveway was only a few months old.
"Edward gave me a debit card awhile ago. I needed a new car and it was the only way I could pay for it," Bella replied, blushing a dark shade of red. Charlie shook his head in disbelief.
"You need to go and see him Bells. I've never seen a man so down before. He has been around here almost every night since you left. He said it made him feel close to you," Charlie said and handed Hayden back to Bella. "Take as much time as you need." Bella nodded. She had planned to go see Edward but not so soon. Charlie got up and made his way towards the door.
"I'll be at the station late tonight Bells," Charlie called out as he left the house. Sighing to herself, she buried her nose in Hayden's tuff of bronze coloured hair and breathed in his baby scent.
"Let's go see daddy," she whispered to her son. He opened his brown eyes and watched Bella for a few moments before closing them again. Bella pulled into the long driveway and spotted his silver Volvo immediately. The only car missing from the Cullen residence was Carlisle's Mercedes. She parked the car, bundled Hayden against the cold and walked slowly towards the front door. She rang the doorbell and less then two seconds later it flung open.
"Sorry whatever your selling... oh my Carlisle," she said. Alice was never one to be surprised but her facial expression said it all. "I didn't see this one coming." "Hey Alice," Bella said suddenly shy.
"Oh my Carlisle. ESME," Alice called out louder than normal.
"Shhh Alice. You'll wake him," Bella said, gesturing to Hayden. Alice looked at him for the first time before pulling Bella into the house and slamming the front door. Esme appeared at the foot of the staircase and the smile on her face said it all.
"Who have we got here?" she asked and took Hayden from Bella.
"His name is Hayden," Bella replied. "Is he home?" "Upstairs in his room. Leave Hayden with us. He'll be fine," Esme said. Bella waited until Esme and Alice were in the kitchen before she slowly walked upstairs.
Edward Cullen hadn't left his room in over 48 hours. He had finally given up going to the Swan residence a week ago. There was no point. She had gone and wasn't coming back. Edward had figured it was payback for leaving her, but where had she gone. Alice had long since given up trying to comfort her 'brother' and had steered clear of him. He can't even remember the last time he hunted. He heard a car pull up the drive and he figured Carlisle was home early from the hospital. Edward was surprised that Carlisle was blocking his thoughts. He heard the doorbell ring and heard Alice called out to Esme and then the front door slamming shut. Maybe Carlisle had some news on Bella. He didn't want to get his hopes up, so he stayed on his bed, head in the pillow and his feet jiggling up and down. The house was silent again and he couldn't hear a sound. A soft knock at his bedroom door shattered the quiet.
"Come in," he mumbled into the pillow and heard the door open.
"Edward," the familiar voice called out. He was sure he was hallucinating. Lifting his head from the pillow, he turned towards the door and there she was. Her dark chocolate colour hair was shorter with different layers and she looked rounder then the last time he had seen her, but she was more beautiful then he had ever imagined.
"Bella?" he asked not believing his eyes. Before he knew it, he was across the room with her pinned against the bedroom wall, his lips devouring hers eagerly. She moaned softly as his cold hands brushed against her lower back. Not caring about his 'boundaries' he lifted her up and she wrapped her legs around his waist. Breaking the kiss to give Bella some much needed air he continued kissing down her neck before resting his head against her heart and listened to its quickened beat.
"I'm sorry," she finally whispered in a raspy voice and looked down into a pair of dark topaz eyes. "Edward I want you to meet someone." Edward reluctantly lowered Bella to the floor. He had loved the close proximity and the intimacy of their embrace. Edward would never admit it but he was scared that the person he was about to meet would take away his Bella forever. Sliding his arm under he knees her hoisted her up off her feet and ran vampire speed down the stairs and into the living room.
"He's in the kitchen," Bella explained.
"He is going to flip out," Alice thought as Edward got closer to the kitchen. He heard Emmett's booming laugh and he flung the kitchen door opened and stopped dead. He stared at Esme as she held a tiny baby in her arms.
"Edward, this is Hayden. Our son," Bella introduced, a smile on her beautiful face.
The person who invented the phrase, Oh My Carlisle is a genius. Unfortuntely, I used that same phrase today and everyone looked at me as if I'd gone completely insane.
