Only In Vengeance
Chapter 5: All For The Looks Of It
With what Carlisle applied to my wounds, the pain was bearable. I could move without worrying that I will scream out. Suddenly I heard shouting come from outside and saw Alice walk out the back door. What's going on back there?
I got up gradually and headed towards the door slowly. What I saw once I was outside shocked me. Jasper looked as though he was struck by a tornado, and Edward looked like he was a ticking bomb ready to set off any second. What the hell happened back here?!
Bella? What was she doing out here? I thought she was resting!? She shouldn't be out here!
Oh. My. God. Her face-it's…Oh my god… How did this happen? No- How could this happen!? After a couple of seconds, I was too shocked to even think clearly. All that came was Oh my god over and over again.
"Bella." I whispered.
Just as Edward was whispering my name I noticed he looked as if a car just ripped through the house. His face was shocked to the max but his eyes only revealed sadness. The look in his eyes tore my heart apart each time I looked at them. Everybody else looked at Edward Cautiously as I stepped closer to him. With each step I took he seemed to be in more and more pain.
"Edward? What's wrong?" I asked, as my hands just barely skimmed his forearms making their way down to his hands.
While I was forming my hands around his, Edward glanced over at Carlisle and I noticed that they were having a silent conversation. With a brief nod from Carlisle, Edward suddenly wrapped his arms around me in a comforting way and sobbed, "Bella, I'm so sorry." .
"I don't understand." I said pulling away from him.
"Bella, maybe we should talk about this inside. Jasper, Alice you should go get some rest in your room. I'll be right up to take a look at Jasper." Carlisle said, gesturing towards the door.
Once we were inside and Alice and Jasper were upstairs Carlisle spoke, "Bella I'm sorry to say this, but I'll be frank with you…Jane did some….permanent damage while you two were fighting."
"Permanent damage? I-I don't understand…" I said, anxiously.
"Bella, you don't exactly look…the same as you did a couple hours ago. Edward, will you please show Bella to a Mirror?" Carlisle asked, as he went upstairs to Esme.
What? Why would I need a mirror? I mean how much could have changed to me in just a couple hours?! I know Jane did some damage…but maybe Carlisle was exaggerating how bad it came out to be. No, he wouldn't do that! He's a doctor for crying out loud! What kind of doctor lies to a patient about their condition! Probably an insane sadistic one…But it doesn't matter, I want to know what the hell he's talking about!!! Just then I noticed that Edward and I had not moved from the back door.
"Edward? Where's a mirror?"
Edward paused a bit before answering glumly, "Bella…I-I don't really…"
"Well? Spit it out all ready!" I said, anxious to get to a mirror.
"I don't think it's a good idea if you see yourself like this…maybe a few more days of healing-"
"What! What do you mean, 'I don't think it's a good idea if you see yourself like this'! That's BS! Now show me a mirror! I don't know what's going on, and it's really confusing and getting to me! So please let me see my reflection!!!"
"O-k…the closest one is in the upstairs bathroom." Edward said, wrapping his arm around my waist and leading me upstairs.
Once we got to the bathroom, Edward followed me in and motioned to the Mirror. Once I caught sight of my reflection the first thing I did was let out a piercing scream.
