Thanks for the reviews! Sadly this is the end. Thank you to all of my lovely reviewers. To my other friends (they know who they are). Also about the real disease name, it was never really used, sorry for that. But Mortifer Fene won. So thanks to Angel of Sinne for the mortifer. And the fene part my friends and I made up. I hope that you all enjoyed the story. I don't know if i will write other stories. My short movie kind of died, but whatever. Enjoy the last fluffy chapter!
It's been two months since the last hearing of the disease. From what we no, nobody has it anymore. I don't really know if it will ever come back, and if so when it would. But for now it didn't matter. For now Bella was safe. I still didn't let her go hunting alone. And I still tried the blood before she drank it. Bella hated when I did this. And we often took longer to hunt because of it, which bothered the rest of the family. But I didn't care, as long as Bella was safe.
The entire family was watching a movie. I wasn't really paying attention though. I was busy with playing with a few strands of her beautiful hair. Alice and Jasper were sitting on the couch, Carlisle and Esme were sitting in the love seat, Emmett and Rosalie were sitting next to Jasper and Alice on the couch and Bella and I were sitting on the ground. My back was leaning on the couch and Bella's head was in my lap.
I didn't even realize when the movie was over, I was so distracted with Bella's hair. But then I heard Alice say, "Bella?"
Bella lifted her head up a little from my lap to look at Alice, "Yes?"
"It's been about what, three years since your change?"
I didn't hear Alice's thoughts, Bella turned them off for me. She said that it would be less distracting for the movie. I laughed in my head, I only paid attention to her. I was still confused with Alice's question.
I said, "What are you asking Alice?"
Alice ignored me, "Are you thirsty Bella?"
"Um no, we just came back from hunting. Why?"
"Well I was wondering if maybe we could see how you were around humans?"
I froze for a minute, then I said, "Alice, it's only been three years. That's barely anything."
Alice finally looked at me, "I'm not asking you, I'm asking Bella."
"No. It's up to Bella."
I looked down at Bella. In my eyes there was worry. Bella could sense the panic in my eyes, "Well if Edward's not ready for it…"
Then Rosalie spoke up, "Bella, as Alice said, it's not up to him. It's up to you."
Then I turned to Rosalie and Alice, "She's too young."
Then Alice said, "But she has great self control! She can be around animals and not pounce on them. She can do that even when there is an open blood cut and she is thirsty."
"But humans are different."
"If she thinks that she's ready, then let her."
I turned to Carlisle, hoping that he would help me, "Carlisle, isn't it too early?"
He said, "Well I think that she's ready. Her self control seems to be as good as yours or mine is."
I looked down at Bella. Her head was still in my lap and she was playing with one of my hands. I could tell that she wasn't exactly comfortable with this situation.
Then I said, "Can we talk about this for a few minutes alone?"
She looked up at me and nodded her head. Then she got up out of my lap and we ran up the stairs to our room. I knew that even though our family could probably hear us, they would give us our privacy.
Bella walked over to the couch and sat down. I sat down next to her and she immediately put her head on my shoulder. I put my arm around her and she started playing with my hand again just as she had been doing in the living room.
Bella didn't look into my eyes, but she said, "I think that I'm ready."
I took a deep sigh, "I know that you're ready, but what if? What if you can't control yourself? What if we're not able to stop you?"
"You're stronger then me now. And the rest of the family will be there. You heard Carlisle, I have good self control. You guys will be able to stop me if anything goes wrong. And we'll go somewhere with not that many people." She turned to look into my eyes. I felt guilty again. She wanted this so badly, and I was the only one stopping her from doing it.
"I'm sorry. I'm holding you back. I know that you have great self control. And I don't think anything will happen. It's just, what if something does happen and you feel terrible about it, it would be all my fault."
"No it wouldn't. It wouldn't be your fault. Please Edward, I'm ready."
"What's the rush anyways?"
"I don't know. I just want to know if I can be around humans. I feel so constrained by not being allowed in certain places, around people. And don't you want to go out and do other things?"
"I just want to be with you. And I want you to be happy." I took a small pause and I mumbled, almost to myself, "I just want to protect you."
Bella kissed my cheek, "I know. But you will be there to protect me. And maybe I don't need as much protection as you think I do."
I took a deep breath, "Are you sure that you want to do this?"
Her face lit up, "You mean it?"
I nodded my head, "If you think that you're ready, then we will try."
Then she wrapped her arms around my neck and tackled me to the couch so that she was laying on top of me. Then she started kissing all around my face and my neck.
"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I love you so much. Thank you."
I let out a little chuckle, then I sat up brining her with me, I kissed her forehead and said, "I love you too. Now why don't we go downstairs so that Alice can tell us where exactly we're going."
Bella nodded her head and we started downstairs. When we got downstairs Alice was practically jumping up and down, "Yay! And don't worry Edward, I didn't see anything happening."
I nodded my head, then Bella said, "Alice, can you tell us where we're going?"
Alice's smile grew wider, "Well I thought this would be a perfect time to go to the mall! As much as I love shopping for you, it's not as much fun if you're not there."
I heard Bella groan next to me, "Do we have to?"
"We won't stay for long I promise."
Bella said, "Fine."
Me, Bella, Alice, and Jasper got into my car while everyone else got into Emmett's car. I sat in the driver's seat and Bella sat next to me. It's been a while since the last time I was in this car, and I missed it. I started the car and I got onto the road. I still drove fast but now Bella didn't complain about the speed, I was extremely happy for this. I took Bella's hand in mine and started rubbing small circles in it. I knew that she was a little anxious, but I think that Jasper was trying to calm both of our nerves.
When we were about half way there I realized that I still had my power off so I turned to Bella and said, "Bella love? I was wondering, could I have my power back please?"
She turned to me, "I think that you should learn how to go on without your power for a little while, understand how the rest of us feel." I could tell that she was joking a little bit but I still worried, what if she didn't give the power back.
She let a small smile play across her lips, "Don't worry, I wouldn't do that to you. Maybe another day we can work on it." she let out a small laugh. Then she closed her eyes and a few moments later I heard Jasper and Alice's thoughts.
Jasper was thinking, I'm happy that she has better self control then me.
Alice was thinking, This is going to be so exciting! We should have done this a long time ago, but Edward worries too much.
I brought Bella's hand to my lips and kissed it gently, "Thank you."
She smiled, "Any time."
A few minutes later we were all at the mall. I could already smell the humans. I wondered how this was affecting Bella. I looked over to her but her eyes were the same color. Not even close to black.
I said, "Ready?"
She nodded her head then we all got out of the car. Emmett's car pulled up next to us. I knew that Alice would have to also control Jasper, if Bella got out of control, that would probably have a big affect on Jasper. But we already planned for that.
Slowly we all started walking into the mall. As we entered right by the door there was a girl talking on the phone. I was able to smell her even before I opened the door, Bella didn't seem to notice her. We continued walking through the mall, passing by different people. Bella's eyes got a little darker, but not by much. I saw that Bella was trying not to breath as much as she normally did.
An hour went by with us going into different shops and Alice buying various items. Bella didn't seem to be affected by any of the people at all. About two hours later we decided to leave the mall. When we got into the car I looked at Bella. Jasper and Alice were also looking at her.
Then Bella said, "It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be."
I leaned toward her and pulled her into a long kiss. "I'm proud of you."
Then I heard Jasper's thoughts, Can you please wait until we get home? I can feel emotions, remember?
I turned to Jasper, "Sorry."
Then we drove back home, I held Bella's hand in mine, occasionally kissing it. I was happy that Bella had such good self control. Maybe we could start to go to school again. It didn't matter as long as Bella was happy, so was I.
So yeah, that was the end. I would LOVE it if you guys reviewed and told me what you thought of it! Thanks! I'm thinking of a new story, but I don't know if I'm going to write it. But whatever. Tell me what you thought!
