A.N/ Hey everyone! I hope you all like this! It all most at the end of the summer. Tell me what you think! And once again that's to my awesome beta Obsess3d Teenag3r! U rock!
I'll right I'll shut up now and let you read. Enjoy!
Both Edward and I were greatly enjoying the internship in New York. I was a writer for a magazine and Edward was a photographer. It wasn't your typical internship, we didn't do all the stupid, pointless stuff that no one else wanted to do, we actually got a taste of what it would be like to work for a magazine.
It was a typical day when things changed. I was on my way to turn in the article I wrote on the release of a new book by one of my favorite authors, Stephenie Meyer, when I heard Edward screaming my name.
"Bella! Bella!" he called.
"Edward!" I screamed back. "Why are you yelling?"
"We have to go home," he said. I could tell it was taking all he had to stay calm.
"Why?" I couldn't help but ask.
He sighed, "Emmet... did something. I don't know the whole story but by the sounds of it we need to be there." I could tell that he was editing.
"Edward, we can't just pick up and leave, we have responsibilities," I reminded him.
"I already talked to Jessica. She said that we can leave since we only have four days left," he said. Jessica was our boss or the office slut as I called her behind her back.
"Alright, but I know you are lying to me and I want answers," I said with an innocent smile.
"I'm not lying," he objected.
"A lie of omission is still a lie," I informed him.
"What ever Bella, really we just have to go. Come on, I already packed your stuff so all we have to do is leave," he said quickly. I didn't know what was going on, but I definitely did not like it.
"Alright, just let me turn in this article," I said then walked as quickly as I could to drop it off.
"Ready?" he asked as soon as he saw me.
"Yeah, and just so you know you are really scaring me." I didn't know what could have Edward so wrapped up.
"Trust me, you need to be scared," he said in a way that made it sound like a joke, but I could tell underneath it all he was petrified.
Before I even had time to register what was going on, we were on a plane headed back to Forks. The flight seemed to drag on for ever, but soon enough we were landed and in the Port Angeles air port.
We got our bags and Edward got a taxi.
"Where to?" the man asked.
"Seattle hospital," Edward said smoothly.
"The hospital! Edward, what the fuck is going on! Why the hell are we going to the hospital!?" I screamed.
"You'll see," he said, intentionally not looking me in the eyes.
I choose to keep quite the rest of the trip. When we got to the hospital Edward walked right up to the front desk. "We are here to see Rosalie Hale," he said quietly, truing to keep me from hearing.
"Are you related to her?" the secretary asked skeptically.
"I'm her sister," I piped up.
"You don't look like her," the woman objected.
"Well, if you looked at her file you would see that she was adopted wouldn't you?" I asked a bit more rudely than necessary.
"Follow me," the woman said in defeat.
"What's wrong with her?" I asked no one in particular.
The woman intentionally ignored my question and didn't say another word until we were in front of Rose's room. "She is in very bad condition, she may not recognize you and you may not recognize her. She has quite a few broken bones and her face is swollen. I must say, I think she is the only person I know that could be in an accident like this and still look like she belongs on television."
"Thank you," Edward said as I ran into the room.
There Emmet sat holding Rose's hand while she slept. "Rose, I love you. You have to make it for me. I couldn't live with out you. I'm so sorry baby, I shouldn't have said anything. Please, know I love you," he was saying to her. I saw tears streaming down his face. Normally I would have had the urge to laugh at someone the size of Emmet hysterical but now it moved me.
"What happened to her?" I asked one last time as I moved to sit on the foot of her bed.
"I... I messed up. I got drunk and messed up," Emmet said looking down.
"Emmet what the fuck did you do?!" I tried not to scream.
"I... I made out with someone else and Rose came into the bar and saw me. Then she screamed at me that I'm a bastard and should burn in hell and ran out. I chased after her but she kept running and she didn't see the other car coming. She got hit and flew twenty feet in the opposite direction," Emmet had lost all composure by now.
"You cheated on her?" I asked laughing. "So typical Emmet, only Rose would end up hurt by a guy she loves who supposedly loves her back!" I yelled.
"Bella you have to believe me I didn't mean to," Emmet asked with bewildered eyes.
"Don't try to make me believe you! Tell the woman on the bed that you didn't mean to!"
"Bella? Is that you?" I heard Rose moan.
I pushed Emmet a side, "Yes Rose, it's me. Edward and I flew back to see you."
"Bella, it hurts so badly," she complained.
"What does?" I asked concerned.
"My heart," she sobbed. "It feels like something is stabbing it. Bella why did he do this? What did I do wrong? Am I not pretty enough?"
By now I felt the tears in my own eyes. "Rose, hunny you have to listen to me. You did nothing wrong. He is at fault, if he doesn't know how to treat you there is nothing you can do about it. You are the most beautiful person I know, both inside and out. Don't let anyone tell you other wise," I said.
"Bella, he cheated on me. I must have done some thing!" she said as loud as she could.
"He is an ass and isn't worth your time," Edward chimed in.
"But I love him. I always will, he's my teddy bear," she continued to sob.
In that moment I felt my heart break into a thousand pieces. My best friend was laying there on a hospital bed, broken in so many ways, and there was nothing I could do because she still loved him.
"Emmet, hallway, NOW!" Edward commanded.
"Edward, my girlfriend is lying there not sure if she is going to live and you want me in the hallway?"
"Hell YES I DO! NOW!" Edward was now yelling.
They made their way out of the room and I took Rose's hand. "It will be okay. It will all be okay." I soothed. "I'll be right back," I said then followed after Emmet and Edward.
I saw them standing at the end of the hall and Edward was yelling. "What the Hell is your problem?" I said as I walked up to them. "Why would you do that? She loves you damn it! And you go and just fuck with some other girl? How could you?"
"I didn't fuck with some other girl. I just kissed her," Emmet defended.
"Oh, whoop-die do. You think that will make it all better? Fuck no Emmet! You fucking hurt her! Do you get that? This isn't about you, it's about her. She is almost dieing and you are worried about yourself. I don't see what Rose sees in you, but I think you are a sorry excuse for a man!" I yelled then spit in his face and walked away.
"Bella!" Edward said shocked after me.
"What the hell?" Emmet asked sourly.
I was about to turn around when I heard the sound of flesh hitting flesh. When I looked behind me Emmet was face down on the ground and Edward had his hand in a tight fist. "You are a sorry excuse for a man. Don't you ever talk about my girlfriend like that again! She is not just a piece of meat! I can't believe I ever called you my brother," Edward said then followed after me. "I'm sorry, love, you should have had to see that."
"It doesn't matter to me. I just want Rose to be happy again." We walked into Rose's room to find her still lying, down facing a wall, shaking with silent sobs.
"She's broken," I sighed.
"He hurt her, what do you expect?" Edward asked.
"Rose doesn't cry. I would expect her to beat the crap out of him, there must be more we aren't hearing."
"Do you want to talk to her or should I?" Edward asked.
"You should go talk to your brother and find out why he is acting so weird, I will take care of Rose," I said.
He shook his head and walked out of the room. I walked over to Rose's bed and rubbed her back. She turned to look at me and whipped the tears from her eyes. "Bella, what do I do?" she pleaded.
"I don't know Rose. If you love him still then you need to talk to him," was the best I could think of.
"But how could he do that?" she asked.
"I don't know. He said he was drunk," I told her.
"I'm sure he was. I would have been drunk if I were him after the day he had," she sighed.
I didn't know how to ask what had happened so I just came out and said it, "Rose, what happened? I feel like I'm not getting the whole story."
"You aren't," she confessed.
"What happened that day, before he went out?"
"We were on the coach making out and my parents came home and threw him out. I gave them crap about it and chased after Emmet. Then when we were walking down the road we ran into Tyler, apparently he knows more about me than I thought, he came up to me and asked me if I had seen my dad lately. Emmet saw that he was upsetting me and told Tyler to back off. When he left Emmet asked me what that was all about. I told him about how I was raped by my "father" and am now pregnant and I don't think it's Emmet's because we are always safe. He didn't take it to well and ended up back at my house and punched my dad in the face and broke his nose. Me being me pulled him off my dad and told him to knock it off. Then he got pissed and ran out of the house. I went looking for him, that's when I saw him," she said.
"Wait, back up, what the hell did your dad do?" I tried my best to be calm.
"He... he raped me," she sobbed. "I tried so hard to get him off, but he told me if I didn't stop he would tie me up and video tape it. So I stopped fighting so hard. Bella it was awful!"
"Rose, did you tell some one?" I asked.
"Yes, I told the doctor and the police but that's it. My dad said if I told anyone he would make sure that next time it wouldn't be as pleasant for me, he would find away to make it hurt even more. What do I do?"
"You need to talk to Emmet, not me. Mean while I'm going to have a nice chat with a few people. I'll see you later Rose." I got up and ran out of the room, I had no idea how anyone could do that to their daughter.
"Bella!" I heard Edward calling after me. I hadn't even realized I passed him. I spun around to face him, rage clear on my face. "I'll take it you found out?"
"Yeah, I think you and I need to pay a visit to a few people," I said.
"I couldn't agree more, but first let's go find out what the police are doing about it."
