AN-OK, OK, OK, I know I suck. I'm so sorry for not updating but I have had a rough time in the past month or so. First, the torture aka school started. Two, my best friend almost brother's mom dies in a house fire. Third, I've had rehearsals for my drama show at school. Lastly, my poor boyfriend who I adore, has been neglected by me and so I have been spending most of my free time with him to make up for my absence. OK, I'm done. I know, I know, EXCUSES, EXCUSES. But they're true.
ONTO, the story this is the last chapter! Unless you guys want otherwise…
Emm, ok, I EDITED this chapter, in like 5 minutes, I sent it to two different people and they haven't sent it back, I know my beta's busy and all, but bejesus. Anyway, I'm sorry in advance for any mistakes…
I HAVE A POLL! GO TO MY PROFILE AND VOTE, PLEASE?!
After I arrived from our little 'sleepover' and my meeting with Mr. Edward. I got home and took a long hot shower. Then, I ate some take out and watched some TV. Now, I'm in my living room on my nice comfy blue couch, watching a movie.
Run, baby, run!
Don't ever look back,
They'll tear us apart,
If you give them the chance-
"Hello?" I answered my cell phone which happened to be right next to me.
"Bella! Oh, thank god, you answered! Please, come back in to the office! I have an emergency!" Adam's unusually frantic voice come through the speaker end. Uh oh, this really isn't good. Adam is almost never frantic or loses his cool. I, myself, have only seen it twice. Once, when he found two employees having sex in his office and the second time was when one of the subjects almost died.
I jumped up and slipped on some sandals. "Why? What's wrong?" I asked, quickly, grabbing my keys and running to the elevators of my apartment building.
"Oh, nothing! Just about six vampires outside staring at 473's window, like they're trying to break it with their eyes!" he said, getting even more frantic by every word.
I ran out of my apartment building to the indoor parking, and sprinted to my corvette and getting in quickly. "OK, Adam, calm down. Take deep, slow breaths. Who else is there?"
I heard him breathing over the phone as I raced down the highway. Luckily, the office was only about 15 minutes from my place. "Andrea and Ivan just got here and the rest are coming, now."
"Alright. I'll be there in like seven minutes, ok? Keep calm don't go breaking anything or getting a heart attack. Ok?" I asked, almost teasingly.
He gave a slightly, hysterical laugh and said, "Yeah, ok, I got it. No breaking anything…Bye." he said, hanging up.
I shook my head as I hung up, too, and put my phone on the passenger seat. I put both hands on the steering wheel and pressed harder on the gas pedal.
I parked close to the door to the office and got out, grabbing my cell phone. Only once I was outside did I notice how cold it was! And I was in short shorts and a t-shirt! I shivered and slammed my door before turning to walk to the entrance.
I heard a wolf whistle and turned to see Joe and Diana walking to the door. I noticed they, too, looked like they weren't expecting the call. Joe was wearing basketball shorts and a hoodie; a white t-shirt peeking underneath. Diana was wearing what looked like calf length sweat pants and tank top with a open button up over it; it looked too big, probably Joe's. Joe ran over to me and Diana followed league.
"Whoa, babe, who you trying to look nice for?" Joe asked, as he swung an arm around my shoulder. I smacked his stomach and he flinched.
"Shut up, idiot." I said as Diana caught up, I grabbed her hand and we continued to the elevator; it opened and we stepped in. "I wasn't ready for the call, at all. And that stupid comment of yours made no sense. I am not wearing make-up and my hair is wet. I'm wearing shorts, because my apartment has a heater so it was warm. Look I have freaking goose bumps!" I complained lifting my leg and my arm that was holding Diana's hand.
"Damn, you're right…" Diana said, running her hand up my arm. Joe hugged me closer.
The elevator door opened and we stepped out and nearly jogged to Adam's office. Ivan, Andrea and Brandon were trying to calm Adam down. To no avail.
Adam looked up when we walked in, raised an eyebrow but quickly went back to being frantic. He ran over to me and shook me a little. "Bella! Help me! What do I do?" he said.
"First, of all, stop shaking me! Second, calm down. Third, let me go talk to Edward and see if he can help in any way." Adam nodded and let me go.
He looked at my 'outfit' and again raised an eyebrow. "What's with this…? Not that I mind."
"Shut up! I wasn't exactly ready for your call." I said, as a shiver ran down my spine. Adam looked concerned before he turned to the guys who were sitting on the couch and desk.
"Hmmm, could someone give her their sweater? I think, she's gonna have to go outside."
"I will." Joe said, as he pulled off his blue hoodie and threw it at me. I pulled it on, quickly an hugged myself to try to get at least a little warm.
"Ok, I'm going in." I said, seriously, though they cracked up.
I sighed and walked out of the office, to the elevator. When I got to the subjects floor I continued walking down the hall to 473's, trying not to get trampled on by the other workers, who were running around and shouting orders/demands.
I came to 473's door and opened it, slowly. When I was fully inside I saw Edward on the floor, leaning against the wall, his head back, his eyes closed, though they opened when I entered. When I was fully in the room he looked me over and raised an eyebrow.
I raised a hand. "Say nothing, regarding my outfit, please." I said, calmly as I went to sit next to him.
He smirked and put his arm around me. "So, to what do I owe this visit, love?"
I looked at him, incredulously. "Oh, nothing, I was in the building and decided to check up on you, in short shorts and flip flops while it's completely freezing." I said, sarcastically. He smirked and stared at my legs. "Anyway, I'm here because I got a frantic call from my boss, Adam, saying that there are six beautiful vampires outside, starring at your window, as if they are trying to break the glass and bars with their eyes. Nothing important." I said, shrugging as I narrowed my eyes at him.
He chuckled. "Is that all?"
"Would you like to explain, dear?" I said, crossing my ankles and taking my arms out of the sleeves of Joe's hoodie crossing them over my chest under it.
"They are my family. They caught my scent and have been there for about 45 minutes. In their minds, they're wondering why, I haven't tried to escape or even look out the window. They know, that I know, that they are out there." he said, calmly, hugging me closer, wrapping his other arm around me, and resting his cheek on top of my head. "Your hair's wet."
"Really?" I asked, sarcastically, as if I had no idea. I took my arms out of the torso of my hoodie and put my hands on his waist.
He laughed. "Yes, really. Anyway, I haven't done those things because I was waiting for you to come."
"Why?" I asked, confused.
"Because I want you to go talk to them, make sure that I am ok, and perhaps tell them when I will be getting out and such."
I turned in his arms and looked up at his beautiful face. "You can go now."
"Seriously?" he asked.
I nodded and tried to get up, he released me and I stood. "Yeah, come on. We just have to go talk to Adam."
He grinned and next thing I knew, he was standing and I was in his arms. A cold finger lifted my chin and I looked up at him. He bent a little and pressed his cool lips to mine.
I smiled and he broke away, grinning at me. I grabbed his hand and used my member ID to open the door, on the keypad next to it. I opened the door and pulled him with me. I let the door close as I pulled him to the elevator earning some stares from the busy workers, some even stopped what they were doing to stare at me.
"Back to work!" I ordered, as they all jumped and got back to what they were doing and pulled a smirking Edward to the elevator doors.
When the elevator stopped on Adam's floor, we walked down the hallway and stopped in front of his closed door. I opened it and pulled Edward through, then closing the door behind him. I turned to face the office and saw that Adam, Ivan, Andrea, Joe, Brandon, and Diana were all in there, already.
"So, what's up?" Joe said, from where he was leaning against the wall.
"Well, the vamps outside are obviously his family and they want him out of here. So I think, it's time he can go." I said, looking at Adam, where he was pulling something out of a drawer from his desk.
He opened the peach colored folder and signed something before closing it and offering it to me. I stepped forward and grabbed it. "That's fine. Your free to go 47-Edward."
I turned to look at Edward, where he was still standing by the door. He was grinning. I was a little sad to know that he was leaving. Would I ever see hi-
"Bella, please come with me. Meet my family." He said, outstretching his hand, with a smile.
I grabbed it, super happy and put the folder on the small table by the couch. I turned back to my family, who were smiling at me.
"I'll be right back!"
With that Edward opened the door and once it was closed he picked me up and I felt wind; now we're outside.
He put me down and I looked at him, realizing something. "You could have escaped all along." I said, incredulously.
He looked a little sheepish. "Well, yea. It isn't that hard, when I didn't have those damn chains on me. And you helped me a lot, too. But I didn't leave, because I didn't want to leave you." he said, pulling me closer.
I grinned and wound my arms around his neck and pressing my lips to his.
Someone cleared their throat behind me, causing me to spin around so fast, I almost fell. Edward's arms wound around my waist keeping me up. "You have to be more careful, now calm down. It's just my family."
I blushed and looked at. I was met with six beautiful faces. The faces of vampires. The faces of Edward's family.
I think I'm going to puke.
Edward noticed, I think, and hugged me closer, and leaned in to whisper in my ear. "Calm down, love. They'll love you."
I nodded and turned back to the vampires. There was a bond male vampire, looking about 23-24. He looked like the leader, and from what Edward has told me, this must be Carlisle.
The motherly looking wom-vampire beside him, with caramel hair and a heart shaped fair, looking at me with a warm smile.
Next to her, was another male, with blond curly hair, and a small smile. Next to him was a small pixie like female with black spiky hair, sticking in all directions, with a huge smile.
Next, was a big male, who looked like weight lifter, he had curly black hair and a huge smile.
Last was a blond female, who was beautiful. She had long blond hair, and a perfect figure. Her arms were crossed, and she looked mad, but when I looked in her eyes, her expression softened and her arms dropped to her sides, as she stared at me. This must be Rosalie.
As we stared at each other, her expression remained the same but her eyes intensified the gold color, melting and shining…
The short pixie-like girl stepped forward. "Hi! I'm Alice." She said, in a high tinkling voice. I extended my arm but she giggled and hugged me, instead. "It's so nice to meet you!"
I nodded. "You, too." I said, in a small, voice.
She grinned. Before she could say anything more, their leader, Carlisle spoke. "Hello, there Bella. I'm Carlisle and this is Esme." He motioned the woman with caramel hair beside him. She smiled again and waved. "We've heard so much about you, you're practically part of the family, already."
I smiled at them and blushed a little. I heard a booming laugh and looked up to see the one with black curly hair, laughing. He came over to me and hugged me, lifting me off the ground. "Hey, I'm Emmett."
"Emmett, put her down! You're freaking her out. And hurting her!" Someone yelled. The voice had a very slight, southern drawl. A second later I felt myself being put down, and I fell into someone's arms. I looked up to the one with curly blond hair. I blushed and he grinned. He helped me stand. "My name's Jasper. Nice to you, Bella."
"You, too, Jasper." I smiled at me, and he hugged me quickly, before going back to the family, with Emmett smacking his head on the way. I giggled, but stopped short when Rosalie stepped towards me.
"I'm Rosalie." She said, extending her hand.
I took it. "Bella."
She nodded and smiled as she released my hand. "I know."
I smiled at her, and she grinned as she stepped forward and hugged me, softly. "Welcome to the family, Bella."
