"Alice, why is everyone staring at us?" I asked as we walked through the mall.
"Maybe because we are pushing around five newborns." She said. I guess it was a sight to see. Alice had a stroller with two seats, and I had one with three and we were pushing the now two week old babies around looking for Christmas decorations and trees and stuff.
"Did I tell you that Carlisle said if I feed them only animal blood then they will probably not want human blood at all?" Alice asked me referring to her two adorable boys. It was kind of funny to me how she said 'feed them only animal blood' like it was completely normal to do that.
"No you didn't. That's good. Do you think I could hold them because of that?" I asked.
"I don't know. I'll have to ask Carlisle about that one." She said. We walked into a store that had everything you could ever want for the Christmas holidays. We both picked out trees and ornaments. Then we got a few more decorations for our apartments. We decided to wait until after New Years to move so we wouldn't be moving at Christmas-time.
"Oh Bella we have to buy these!" Alice said as she held up a tiny reindeer costume, and a tiny elf costume.
"Alice it's not Halloween." I said. She frowned.
"But the babies would look so cute as little elves, and reindeer. Come on, please?" She said. I sighed.
"Alright, but when they grow up and see the pictures of them that we're going to take when they wear them, I'm telling them it was your idea." I said.
"Fine with me!" She said. She grabbed three elf costumes and two reindeer. I laughed at the thought of the babies wearing them.
"Why didn't we get Jasper, and Edward to come and help us with all this?" I asked Alice as we skillfully pushed our strollers and a shopping cart at the same time.
"Oh come on, we don't need them." She said. When we got to our cars we reached a dilemma.
"How are we going to fit the trees in our trunks?" I asked. She shrugged. "See this would be a time my truck would come in handy." I said. After about a half an hour of trying to make it work, we fit the trees into Alice's Porsche and Edward's Volvo I borrowed. Then I buckled Abbie, Ben, and Kaylee into their car seats. Alice did the same with Devin and Joshua. We drove all the way home. When we got there Edward and Jasper carried everything we bought inside.
"So are we going to put this tree up now?" Edward asked. I nodded excitedly. Edward put the tree together like it was the easiest thing in the world. Then we decorated it. "I have to say it's beautiful." Edward said.
"I think so too." I said. "I think it's time to feed them." I added, and right after I said that all three babies started crying.
"How do you do that?" Edward asked.
"I know my kids." I said and shrugged. Edward and I walked into the nursery. I picked up Abbie and Edward picked up Ben and we started feeding them. I stuck to feeding them with a bottle because they never ate when I tried breastfeeding. After I fed Abbie, I lied her back down in her crib and picked Kaylee up. I fed her. After all of them were done eating they fell asleep again.
"Can you believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve?" I asked Edward.
"Actually, yes I can." He answered.
"Okay then." I said. We, or I, went to sleep and when I woke up the next morning I started my very busy day. It was Christmas Eve and everyone came over and we had a pretty good time. I couldn't help but miss my mom and Charlie. Then like always, we woke up the next morning and it was Christmas. Rose went into slightly early labor and her baby was born on December 26th.
She named her Ava Elizabeth Cullen.
We were all (or at least I was) getting pretty homesick so we started moving back on New Year's day. We packed all of the baby stuff and our stuff and, finally, we got moved back into our normal houses on the 4th day of January. Everyone thought it would be best if I lived with the Cullen's because of the babies. Charlie hadn't approved that yet so after everyone got moved and settled Edward, the babies, and I went to talk to him. He didn't know we were even back yet.
"Bella!" Charlie exclaimed as he opened the door. He looked tired, like he had been taking a nap.
"Hey Charlie." I said, setting the car seat that held Kaylee down. Edward came walking in behind me and sat Abbie and Ben's car seats down too.
"Gosh, they got bigger!" Charlie said, looking down at the babies.
"They just turned a month old yesterday." I said as I smiled proudly. I looked over at Edward and he walked outside, knowing that's what I wanted him to do.
"Dad the reason we came here is to tell you that I'm going to be living with the Cullen's. I think it's the best thing to do, considering there house is bigger and the fact that I'm with Edward." I said preparing for the worst possible response.
"Alright." Charlie said. I almost fell over.
"You're not mad?" I asked. He shook his head.
"You have been living with him for a while now anyway, and now there's no reason for you not to live with him." Charlie said in an annoyed tone. I was confused.
"What?" I asked.
"Well....ugh...just turn around." Charlie said with disgust in his voice. I turned around and Edward was down on one knee. He was holding a box with a ring in it.
"Marry me?" He asked. I almost fainted. I loved Edward more than anyone could ever imagine, but marriage? I cringed at the word. I looked down at Edward, still on one knee and panicked. I couldn't turn him down in front of Charlie. Instead of answering his question, I ran outside and hopped in the Volvo and drove away. I could imagine Edward and Charlie's face. Edward's face full of hurt and rejection, and Charlie's face full of joy and he could possibly be laughing.
As I drove down the road I thought of how childish I had just acted. It was the only thing to do though. I couldn't marry Edward. Marriage almost always ends badly, or at least thats the way I look at it. Then again, I don't see how our marriage could end badly. If he loved me as much as he said he did, then there was no way it could end badly. Someday he was going to change me into a vampire, if I could convince him, and we would be together forever. Marriage was just I guess to him sealing the deal. Although if I ever wanted to leave, he wouldn't try to stop me.
My mind continued racing until I came up with a plan. I drove back to Charlie's house.
"You're back." Edward said as he opened the door.
"Sorry about that." I said. He smiled a weak smile. "Let's go home." I said. I looked around and didn't see Charlie.
"He had to go to work for something." Edward said. I nodded and we took the babies outside, buckled them in, and rode "home".
"OH MY GOSH! OH MY GOSH! I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU! WHEN'S THE WEDDING GOING TO BE?" Alice exclaimed as we walked through the door.
"Alice." Edward growled through his clenched teeth. Her eyes grew wide.
"Sorry." She said. I took the babies into there room, and put them in there cribs. Then Edward and I walked into his room.
"So?" He asked as I sat down on the bed he had bought, just for me.
"Yes, I'll marry you. Under one condition." I said.
"Ah, alright." He said, laughing.
"After we get married, you have to change me." I said. His eyebrows furrowed together.
"No." He said sternly.
"But, Edward think about this. When the babies grow up they're going to be werewolves-." I said and he cringed at the word. "If they keep phasing they can stay the same age forever, just like you, Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle, Esme, and Jacob. Isn't it kind of unfair if I'm the only one who dies?" I asked. He shuddered at something, most likely the thought of me dieing. He paced around the room not saying anything for a while.
"Can I have some time to think this over, and talk to Carlisle?" Edward asked. I nodded. "You need some sleep. I'll take care of the babies if they wake up." He said as he kissed my forehead. He ran off and I leaned back on the bed and fell asleep.
