Bella And Edward: Alternative Ending If Bella had lost her baby.
I kept on thinking to myself that it probably wouldn't be the same fate for Edward and me, especially with my luck. Everyone turned in their slips of paper to Caias, who began to count them. My hands starting getting sweaty as I endured the long wait. Edward was looking at the ground, probably because he didn't want anyone to see how angry his face was.
Caias cleared his throat, once again, "Isabella Marie Cullen and Edward Anthony Masen Cullen will not get to keep their child," he announced.
I looked up, tears flowing out of my eyes like Niagara Falls, and a lump formed in my throat, making it throb. Edward stood up and banged his fists on the table, tears streaming down his white porcelain face. It was so hard that the table snapped in two. The little slips of paper floated to the ceiling and slowly came back down, like falling snowflakes.
You could hear the sound of growling in Edward's chest, he was furious, "You must have counted wrong!!" he shouted. Everyone, except me, just stared at him.
There was a long moment of silence until it was broke by Caias, "I do believe, Edward, that I counted correctly."
"Well count again, Caias," Edward snapped through gritted teeth.
Caias picked up all the little slips of paper from the ground and counted them, more than once and cleared his throat once again, "I'm sorry," he said, "You will not be able to keep the baby."
"Isn't there something else that they can do to keep the baby, anything?" Esme pleaded. Her heart was just as broken as mine, because, like me she also lost a child.
"I'm sorry there is nothing else we can do, the decision has been made." Caias said. I could see a wry smile on his face, of course he was also the one who didn't agree with Aro that I should be turned into a vampire, so I wasn't too surprised, I was just deeply hurt.
"Bella, you will have to go with Jane."
"Why?" Edward asked with anger.
"Because the baby will have to be taken," Caias said.
Esme put her hand to her mouth, "Oh God," she said.
I followed Jane into a small laboratory room, where I awaited my fate. I did not dare to look back. Just the thought of looking at all the sad faces in that room made me want to scream. I laid on the bed after putting on one of the hospital gowns, which they happened to have. I had no idea how they or who they got them from.
Edward came in moments later. He looked like he was going to attack the next thing that moved. His face was tearstained and his eyes were pitch black. He leaned over to kiss me on the lips, softly, like he always did and took my hand and his hand and rubbed my stomach. He bent down and kissed it. The thought of never being able to see our child made me cry. It also made me despise Rosalie, like she always had despised me. She was the most beautiful person in the world. Got everything that she wanted and even got the child that she had always dreamed of, unlike I did.
Jane came over and put me to sleep with anesthesia and sent Edward out of the room and had him go far away to where he would not hear the baby's cry.
When I woke up, I was in my bed at home, with Edward lying next to me.
"Bella," he said in a whisper.
I looked at him, it was almost unbearable. I put my hand on my now empty stomach and started bawling. There was no hope for me to ever have a child.
Edward's lips touched mine and I pulled away. The feeling of his lips on mine brought back memories of the night of when our baby was conceived. "Edward, I can't. It's too much."
I could tell he understood. He laid back down and pulled me over to hug me against his chest, where we stayed for a long, long time.
OCTOBER 31, WHEN DAVID IS BORN
When Edward and I received news that Rosalie had, had her baby, I hung up on the nurse right after she had said the word baby. Every time I heard that word I would shiver and cower in the corner of Edward and I's bedroom.
It was like when Edward had left. There was a huge gaping hole in the pit of my stomach. Neither of us had said a word to each other. We both were afraid of saying something wrong that would bring back bad memories that would shatter our body's into millions of pieces.
Both of our hearts were broken, whether they were pumping blood or not, it didn't matter. Either of us has left the house, which means we both haven't hunted in a couple of weeks.
I sat on the couch with Edward. He pulled me to his chest, the tears freely streaming down our faces. He cradled me in his arms, rubbing his finger across my cheek. Ever since that day when our baby was taken, his eyes have never changed back to the topaz color that I fell in love with. My favorite crooked smile has never played on his face either. It was like the sadness was killing us both, very slowly. For all of eternity our lives would never be back to normal.
"I love you, Edward," I said softly. No matter what happens I will still love him.
"I love you too, Bella," he said, "And no matter what happens I always will," he kissed me on the lips softly and we stayed there in each other's arms, mourning in the quiet peacefulness.
In the hospital, Rosalie and Emmett were glowing over their newborn baby. Something that Edward and I would always dream and think about for the rest of our immortal lives.
