Chapter 22 - The Greatest Thing In The World.
Jukebox: Stylo - Gorillaz
I was startled awake by Esme who barged into the room, the doors dramatically slamming back against the wall, the noise echoing throughout the room. She flitted to one side of the room, tearing open the curtains, making the sun hit directly in my face before heading to the other side to do the same thing.
I sat there, stunned, eyes tightly closed. I felt tears beginning to gather in my eyes and roll down my cheeks. That hurt! Getting the sun shined in your eyes so soon after waking up wasn't exactly a very pleasant thing.
"Aww, Bella sweetie, there's nothing to cry about. You'll be seeing Edward soon." Esme was by my side in seconds, bringing me into a hug while running her hands through my hair, awkwardly pulling her fingers from tangles here and there.
"I'm not crying about that," Because I already cried about it before. "It's just the sun is so bright so early in the morning. And I thought you were gone for a project." She laughed softly and I was finally to open my eyes a little, squinting at best.
"Well Carlisle has been keeping me updated and they wanted me here today. They also sent me to get you as well. I need you to shower so I can pretty you up. I'll also have clothes laid out for you." I blinked, slowly taking this all in.
"Are we going some where today?"
"Yes, we're going to the company today for an important meeting. Now, scoot along, no more questions." Her soft voice trilled with excitement as she helped me out of bed and pushed me toward the bathroom.
I set the temperature to a bearable warmth before stripping of my two piece pajamas and stepping in.
So they kept everyone updated but me, huh? For some reason, that isn't a very comforting thought. The plain white walls described my days lately. Plain. Nothing interesting. Esme made it seem as if this meeting was going to be the greatest thing in the world. She must have attended the meetings there before, right? Did she not realise how boring they were?
Ah, I'm wasting water! The bathroom is the greatest place to think because most of the time it's the only place you'll get to be alone. But thinking in the shower isn't such a great idea.
Grabbing my favorite shampoo from the shampoo and conditioner holding rack from the shower wall, I flipped the cap open and squeezed a generous amount into my palm before placing it back and spreading the creamy liquid throughout my hair. Massage, scrub, twist, massage, scrub, twist. Rinse. Next I grabbed an identical looking bottle that read 'CONDITIONER' across it, flipped open the cap, squeezed a nice amount on my palm, placed it back on the rack and lathered the thick liquid onto my hair.
I took my time with the conditioner, loving the way my hair already started to feel silky. Stepping out from under the shower head, I grabbed a bar of soap from the rack and began washing away the dead skin cells. After washing every corner and surface of my body, I stepped back under the shower head, washing away the conditioner and left over suds. The drain made a gurgling noise as it took in the soap.
After a few more minutes, I turned off the water, pulled away the clear shower curtains and pulled a clean dark blue towel from the towel rack and began drying myself. I grab another towel for my hair, placing it in a sloppy wrap. But this peace was short lived. The bathroom slammed open, scaring me out of my wits for the second time in less than an hour.
"No time to admire yourself in the mirror, chop, chop!"
"Alice?!" I cried.
"Bella!" She cried back, but twice as dramatic. She came behind me and started to push me out of the bathroom. I securely held onto my towel and stumbled a little. "Now, now, Bella. No need to be tense. You've been placed into trusted hands so drop those stiff shoulders and let me get to work!
No reason to be tense. Yeah, right.
- - -
Two hours later I was walking into Cullen INC, side by side with Esme and Alice. Back at the house, Alice had laid out black lacy panties and a matching push-up bra. A slap to my face, saying that my breasts are small. Reluctantly I put them on and she set to work on me.
She had went out into the hall and brought in her special black bag. I stared at it with awful memories.
I watched as she pulled out tan coloured stocks and tossed them towards me. Catching them easily, I quickly pulled them on, making sure not to stretch or make any holes in it. If I ruined anything in that comes out of that bag, Alice would have my head on a silver platter with flowers of all colours and black beads. Esme came in, a grin breaking out on her face while she held a few clothing particles in her hands.
"Esme is nice enough to lend out her designer clothing." Alice smiled, taking the clothes from Esme before she looked me over, giggled and left.
"For designer clothing, they sure look plain."
"They are, but what its made with is what makes it worth buying."
I didn't ask anything further as she made me step into a vintage lace and silk Chiffon strapless dress.. It was strapless, reached just above my knees and it was black. Next she handed me a Vivienne Westwood black dress jacket to add class. And to hide my bra straps. From her magically bag, she pulled out a pair of black Nitelife Cloe platform heels. Urging me to sit down on the bed, she slipped the shoes on carefully, doing up the tiny buckle over my ankle. I felt like a life sized Barbie.
"Now for make-up!" Alice squealed and pulled out a box from her bag, opened it to reveal all her make-up supplies.
She went to work right away. Applying black eyeliner, smokey eye-shadow, mascara, a light blush and natural coloured lipstick. Next from the bag was a brush and an elastic. She brushed my hair, scraping my scalp painfully each time but I didn't dare complain. Then she tied my still wet hair into the tightest bun ever.
"Perfect, now lets go!"
And so here we are. We had to family limousine drop us off in front of Cullen INC. When we walked past the front doors, my feet were already aching. But at least meetings involved chairs and I'll be ever so thankful if we can get there quicker.
Employees made way once they saw who we are. giving friendly yet nervous smiles. They were intimidated by the power we held. Just a snap of my finger and they'd be fired. But I'm not like that. So I gave a smile in return, saying a few hello's, having a few hand shakes. Soon we were stepping into the elevators strictly for the family and partners for meetings.
"Which floor is this meeting on?" I asked, ready to push the button for our destination.
"Second last floor." I pushed the button and blinked.
"That's one of Edward's personal floors."
"It is," Esme agreed with a nod of her head. "When he uses his personal floors, then the meeting is one of the most important ones he'll ever have in his life. And that will be rare." And suddenly, she seemed excited again but this time, I saw the uneasiness in her eyes.
I looked up at the small screen displayed above the elevator doors. The elevator moved at such a quick speed that within a minute, we were on the second top floor. I stepped out into the familiar place and looked around nervously. It was so quite, you could hear a pin drop. Esme started to lead us down a hall and through big double black doors. Inside was probably one of the biggest, longest round tables I had ever seen with twenty chairs surrounding it. Both the table and chairs were black.
I saw Edward sitting at one end, wearing one of his expensive business suits. My heart leaped at the site of him and brought a smile to my face. But it quickly faded when I saw his serious expression. Next I noticed two others sitting on Edwards left site. Blinking rapidly, then squinting, I realised that they were twins. One boy, one girl and they looked no older than eighteen.
The girl had her pale blond hair pulled back into a tight french bun, her make-up was kept light and she wore a men's black business suit, showing a little bagginess. She had icy blue eyes and they had a little bit a gleeful malice in them. Mentally shivering, I turned my gaze to the boy next to her. Unlike the girl, he had darker hair, giving a sandy blond look and it looked like as if he just woke up and didn't bother brushing. But it wasn't a complete mess, more like a neat mess, if that made sense. His eyes were also blue but they held only half the malice of his twin. He was also wearing a black suit but more fitting.
"Bella.. " I froze. No. No, no,no. Slowly, I turned my head into the direction of that voice. Why in the world is he here?
"Jacob?" His eyes shined with a little bit of hope as I called his name. I quickly looked away and walked swiftly to Edwards side, bending down to give him a quick kiss on the cheek before sitting down on his right side. When I looked back down at the other end of the table, Jacob no longer had that hope lingering in his eyes and was now replaced by building fury. Esme came to sit by me then Alice by her, saying a quiet hello to Edward.
"Now that everyone is here, we can start the meeting." Edwards voice held power and authority, causing a shiver to run down my spine.
"Yes, I believe there's a lot we need to talk about." For the first time I noticed Mr. Black in the room. He was in his wheel chair against the wall, a unhappy expression on his face.
"You, old fool, shouldn't be talking." My head whipped to the twin beside Edward. Her voice was soft but it also held dark amusement.
"Excuse me? What right do you have to talk to me that way?" Mr. Black growled, looking as if wanted to rip himself out of that wheelchair and put the girl in her place. But she only smirked at him, taunting him.
"Oh, excuse me for my manners. I am Jane and this is my twin, Alec."
"Aro's brats?" Jacob questioned. Instantly, Jane's smirked dropped into a scowl, her eyes narrowing dangerously.
"Brats?!" She hissed under her breath and stood up quickly, almost knocking her chair over.
"Easy, Jane." Alec smooth voice called out, placing his hand on her arm. Reluctantly, she huffed and sat back down in her seat but kept her firm glare on Jacob.
"Jacob Black, I'd like it if you refrained from calling my friends children that." Edward spoke next, his voice as smooth and calm as Alec's.
"Aren't they adopted? I can see why they were put in the orphanage."
"Jacob!" I practically screeched at him. "Quit being an asshole!"
"Oh ho, I like her, Edward." Jane laughed lightly before returning her attention back to Jacob. "You, mongrel, have no right talking at this table. You're a complete disgrace to your fathers company and to Cullen INC. Heck, you're a disgrace to the human race. You're the scum of the Earth." Her words dripped with such venom that even I flinched back. Talk about brutal.
To this, shockingly, Jacob said nothing. His mouth thinned into a tight line, eyes glinting murderously at Jane.
"Smart move." Alec threw at Jacob, his voice taunting. I blinked and turned to Esme for an explanation. She leaned into my ear and began to whisper.
"No one dares to go against Aro, his kids or any of his employees. It would be suicide." My mouth made an 'O' before returning my attention back to everyone else.
"Oh, Edward, I'm sorry we couldn't make it to your wedding. I was causing a bit of trouble so Aro thought it would be best to leave me behind." Jane completely ignored Jacob, bringing on a totally different, random subject, resulting in Jacob looking dead pissed.
"I'm sorry too, Edward. I don't go anywhere without Jane." Alex apologized too, nodding his head towards the man beside me.
"It is quiet alright. I hope you enjoyed the cake Aro brought back for you."
"Yes, thank you. It was quite good even though it was a little stale by the time he got back to us. Congratulations to you too, Bella." Jane smiled sweetly at me but I knew behind that innocent smile is a young woman you wouldn't want to mess with, even on her good day.
"Ahem." Jacob coughed, getting out attention.
"What do you want, mongrel?" Jane spoke with a bored tone, running her fingers over her fine suit.
"We're suppose to have a meeting, not a social gathering."
"He's right! What did you call us here for?" Mr. Black pitched in, also looking pissed about the whole situation.
"I called you two here to break up the contract."
There was completely silence. Alice Giggled. Esme sighed. Jane snorted. Alec coughed. Jacob froze. gasped. I blinked. Then Jacob and his father began shouting at us, threatening, cussing.
"Will you please, calm down before I have security guards throw you out for causing a disturbance and we'll have to have the meeting again and waste everyone's time. And money." Asked spoke while grabbing a clipboard off the table, looking over and checking a few things.
"Where is Carlisle! He's the owner of the company, he's the one who makes the decision!" Mr. Black yelled and banged his fist on the wall behind him.
"If you damage anything in this room, be prepared to paaaay." Alice spoke in a sing-song voice, sounding too happy with the Black's liking.
"My husband is working right now. As the vice president should." Esme spoke, almost grabbing the clip board in front of her, looking over the fine small sprint.
"Vice president?" Jacob asked.
"Yes. My father believed, as my mother does, that I am finally ready to take over the family company." I gasped in surprise and smiled.
"When did this happen?" I asked Edward. He turned to me, putting my hand in his and smiled.
"Yesterday." I let out a squeal before giving him a hug.
"Bella.. " Jacob whined. WHINED. I turned in my seat to look at him. He was giving me puppy eyes, looking completely crestfallen.
"Please, don't, Jacob."
"Bellaaaa.. " He whined again. I grit my teeth together.
"Jacob, seriously, that's annoying." His mouth slacked open a little before he gained his composure.
The room was tense now except the twins didn't seem to feel it, seeing as how they're looking laid back. Alice stood and took the clip she was holding over to Jacob, dropping it on the table in front of him, along with
a pen. Esme stood next and went to Mr. Black, handing him the clipboard and pen more nicely then Alice. Instead of taking them calmly, he slapped them right out of Esme's hands. She let out a small scream and stumbled back.
"Esme!" I cried, getting up and running over to check if she was okay.
"Alice." Edward spoke without looking at anyone but Jacobs dad.
"Yes, sir." Alice took out a walkey-talkey from the belt around her waist. She pressed the communicator and began talking. "Mr. Black is unable to keep his actions under control, Mr. Edward Cullen see's it as a problem. Remove him. Ten-four."
"Ten-four, clear." Came the response and the line went dead.
Less than five minutes later, the company police officers came in and began wheeling Mr. Black out of the room. But he was going down without a fight. He threw himself from his chair, crawled to the table and latched onto its legs.
"I refuse to leave." He huffed, clearly out of breath.
"Mr. Black, please come with us." One of the officers spoke, trying to grab a hold of the older males arm but he began flailing them. "Looks like we're going to have to pin him down."
It took all four men to pin down and Edward helped tie him up with restraints. Ten minutes later, the police officers were able to wheel Mr. Black out except they didn't have anything to tape his mouth close so we had to listen to his cussing on the way out and all the way down the hall. Esme turned out to be okay but she guessed her wrist was going to have a bruise by the afternoon.
I picked up the clipboard from the floor and walked over to Jacob. He had a look of embarrassment on his face. 'Who wouldn't be embarrassed after what their own father did in front of the public eye?'
"Looks like you're going to have to sign your fathers copy." I spoke in a monotone voice. But it didn't help to keep my emotions in check. I felt anger build within me. That bastard had no right hitting Esme! She did nothing wrong! I lifted the board and hit Jacob on the back of the head with it.
"Ouch!" Jacob yelped.
"Bastard!" I seethed.
"Bella!" Edward yelled.
"Entertainment!" Jane cheered.
"Jane.. " Alec looked at his sister warily.
Edward was at my side in seconds, taking the board out of my head and leading me out of the meeting room. I settled in one of the chairs, breathing deeply.
"My wild, wild wife." He sighed, bending down to give me a quick hug and kiss. Then he whispered "I'm proud of you. But maybe you should wait out here until the meeting is over.". I nodded in agreement. After one last hug, he went back into the meeting room shutting the black doors behind him.
I sat in my seat, feeling pride well in me at my wife's actions. I believe she handled the situation perfectly but I had to give her a time out to be fair to the other. This had to go smoothly for it to work. And with Mr. Black out of the picture, all the pressure will be put on that bastard. It's perfect.
Alice and Esme resumed their original seats, waiting for the meeting to go on.
"I'm truly sorry for that, Jacob. Please accept my deep apologies."
"You don't sound sorry." He growled while rubbing the back of his head. And he was right.
"You deserve to have so much more done to you than a little love tap." Jane spoke, a sinister smile creeping up on her face.
Of course, Jacob didn't dare speak back to her. One word and she'll have "papa Aro" crush the Black's company into bits before the days over.
"Cullen, if you destroy the contract, then you have to hand over more than half of your company's profit and stocks. Of course, we can always settle a deal.. "
"If it involves Bella, no." Jacob glared.
"Did you bring those two just so they can talk smack and get away with it?"
"Actually," Alex stood, smoothing out invisible wrinkles on his suit. "We're here as a support."
"Yes," Jane continued, also getting up to stand beside her twin. "You see, we adore the Cullen family, which means we adore their company, too. Did you know, it was actually papa Aro that helped Carlisle get this
company started. He watched it grow and it grew beautifully. Of course he was surprised when Carlisle signed a contract with the Blacks, a almost failing company. Aro tried many times to tell the Cullen's that you guys have been steal profits, charts and plans." Jacob froze in his seat, staring wide eyed at Jane. Of course this information was told to us over this past week so it wasn't much of a shock but it stilled pissed me off. She continued.
"No one knew what was really going on though, a lost project here, a couple charts suddenly missing there. Everyone just assumed that they were misplaced of thrown out accidentally. But your company didn't dare have those projects shown in your company in fear of getting caught so they were sent to your international companies, made it seem like they made up the idea and had stocks shipped here.
Aro never stepped in after awhile because Carlisle was blind, saying that "They're our friends, our brother company, they would never do that." so he believed that is was too late to convince him otherwise. But when he saw you trying to steal Bella away from Edward, he saw it as a chance to get the truth out there. He waited until it the Cullen's seemed ready to let go of the Black's, no matter what it would cost them, he just didn't expect it to be so soon! When Edward called last week for support, papa Aro was so thrilled."
"Shut up!" Jacob finally yelled, his eyes wild
"Aro immediately sent over the evidence-- "
"-- And was happy to help out the Cullen company."
"Shut your fucking trap before I do it for you. You will not talk to her like that." The room temperature seemed to drop as Alec spoke, his icy gaze stared Jacob down, daring him to say it one more time.
"Thank you, Alec."
"Is that the reason why you're here? To rub the evidence in my face?" Jacob spat. hands gripping the table until he got white knuckles.
"That. And we're replacing you."
"We're replacing you. Edward called us specifically and asked if we could join companies with them after they break the contract with you. Aro said yes, of course. He was so happy. He had wanted to team up with Cullen INC for the longest time, to work along side his long time friend. So instead of losing values, they'll be gaining. Once joined, you'll be like dirt to the. Oh, and Aro sent us because he believed we would handle the situation well, which we did, don't you think?"
"No, not really." Jacob mumbled, taking in all the information.
"You'll be saying that now. But is Aro came and you said one wrong thing, you'd be out on your ass a long time ago." Alec said lightly, not caring in the least bit.
"No way I can change your mind, huh, Cullen?"
"Afraid not. The moment you took Bella from me, you crossed the line." Jacob scoffed, looking away.
"Don't be such a bitch!" Jane hissed, slamming her hand onto the table. "At least your company won't go into ruins. They allowed you to take most of their profits since they're the ones breaking the contract. Aro wanted to wipe the Black's off the earth."
"She is right," Alec added in, resting a hand onto his twins shoulder, hoping to calm her down a bit. "It would be best to walk away with something than nothing.
And without a word, Jacob began signing everything on the clip board. Next he grabbed his fathers, signing that as well. After he was done, Esme collected both clip boards and left the room with Alice.
In an hour, Jacob had been degraded, embarrassed, and abused. Mentally and physically. It was a smart move that he now signed those papers and got up to leave without another word. Probably trying to save what pride he had left.
"Oh, not that way," I told Jacob, who started to head out the doors, the same ones he came in through. I didn't want him seeing Bella before he left, never again. "You'll be going through that door, it leads you straight to the secretary's elevator."
He turned and headed in the direction, not saying a word until I stopped him again.
"Jacob, I do have one question though."
"Why did you steal stuff from the company?"
".. I wanted to impress Bella. I wanted her to think that my company was better then any other. I was hoping she would one day ask me to support her, as a husband would. I wanted her to see that I would be able to provide for her and a family if she ever wanted to have kids.. "
Without another word, he left, slamming the door hard behind him. I stared at the space he filled up seconds ago, shocked. Everything he did was for Bella. Good or sickly, he did it all for her in blind love. Even as going far as stealing our company goods. And just before he left, he had tears rolling down his face. The sign of defeat without being able to do anything about it.
What if I was in his place, doing everything for the girl I love but never getting her attention? Then suddenly a guy comes along, let alone someone I'm partnered with and he easily sweeps her off her feet. I'd probably be mad. More than mad. I'd probably do everything in my power to get her to look at me. But there is a fine line between love and obsession. And Jacob had went over the line of obsession, wanting to posses Bella as if she were a porcelain doll.
"You can let go, Jacob. She may haunt your thoughts and dreams but in time, she'll just be a memory to you. Find a girl to really love. And don't treat her like a possession." I spoke softly to myself but earned odd looks from the twins.
"Come on, Edward. We'll have you sign some papers, send them down to Aro to confirm and we'll be officially bonded together. Don't regret it, we like to work people hard." Jane smiled, walking towards the door, Alec by her side. I sighed and smiled. Things are going to be a little hectic around here.
Two years Later..
Cullen INC was one of the top and most successful companies in the world. About a year ago, Edward believed we were ready to go international. There was a risk of failing but we firmly believed all would go well. I have heard over the last few months that the Black's company has been doing well, not great but not bad either. I never did hear from Jacob after that one fateful day.. But the company was the last thing on my mind. My first priority is Riel, my baby boy.
"Mama!" Looking down into my lap, I couldn't help but smile at my angel. He held a toy block up to my face and I took it before he grabbed another and proceeded to try and give it to me. This went on for less than a minute before he got bored and climbed out of my lap, looking for another toy to entertain himself.
"Dada?" Riel twisted his upper torso to face me, his large eyes blinking rapidly. Ahh, my heart.
"Dada is sleeping right now, so we gotta be quiet." I placed my index finger against my lips.
"Mama." A husky voice whispered into my ear that I almost wanted to scream my head off but I let a 'eep' escape.
"Edward." I sighed as he brought his arms around my midsection, allowing me to lean in his embrace. "You've only got four hours of sleep, go back to bed."
"But I heard my angels laughing so I had to come see what's going on."
"Were we being too loud? I'm sorry."
"Don't be." He placed a kiss on my neck before crawling over to Riel.
Like father like son, Riel was a splitting image of Edward except for the skin, which was slightly paler, like mine. Other than that, he had untameable bronze locks and emerald orbs. They happened to be even more piercing than Edward's.
Edward adores his son, spoiling him every chance he gets. Before he comes home from work, he brings home a present, ranging from toy trucks to chewable toys. Riel was entering the teething stage after all. I remember when I felt his hard gums on my nipples one day. I instantly went out and got him a bottle and baby formula. Riel was also able to eat on his own, if the portion is small enough. He can say "Mama" and "Dada", although I had to admit that I was jealous when he said the latter first.
I watched Edward play with the blocks and Riel was suddenly interested in them again, taking them away from the older man, giggling madly. Edward couldn't help but laugh too. Who could resist Riel's cuteness?
Riel will never feel unloved, so I'll never worry. He has two loving parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents who love to spoil him. Speaking of aunts and uncles..
Emmett and Rosalie were going to have their fist child in five months. It was exciting to hear about another pregnant woman's adventure, knowing you went through the same thing. But Edward and Emmett shared their own horror stories with each other.
I had asked Alice about babies and she said that Jasper wanted children but they wanted to wait until they were out of college and have a stable relaxing life. Smart move.
Charlie comes over almost every day to spend time with Riel, lathering him with attention. Of course, Riel is the star in our lives now, he's going to suck up all the attention. Esme and Carlisle sometimes takes Riel on walks and off our hands when we are busy, which I'm thankful for. Hiring a nanny, a complete stranger, to watch over my angel just doesn't sit well with me.
But everything isn't as peachy as it sounds. We have our ups and downs. Edward and I do fight over personal issues, sometimes the fights are over pointless things but we work everything out in the end. It may not be a perfect story book, it's far from it but I have years ahead of my to achieve it.
"Hey, Bella.. "
"What do you think of having another child." I blinked, staring at him with a blank expression. He darted his eyes from me to Riel, clearly nervous about my response. The silence dragged on and he began to sweat a little. Unable to hold on any longer, a smile spread across my face.
"I was wondering when you would ask." I laughed when it was Edwards turn to blink before letting out a relieved sigh.
"When would you like to get started?" He spoke huskily, eyeing me up and down. Now I felt a little self conscious since I did happen to lose most of the baby weight but there was the last five pounds were being stubborn.
"Not right now so you can tell Edward Jr. there to stop making a tent in your pajama pants. We can get started next week."
"Next week?!" He whined, his lower lip jutting out into a pout. It was so cute I couldn't help but laugh.
"You know you're busy all week, with meetings and projects. You'll be too tired to get it up. I don't need a dead fish laying on me during the heat of the moment, thanks." I taunted, sending a wink his way.
"Hah, dead fish? I'll show you a dead fish." He made a move to get up but Riel grabbed his hand, or what he could with his tiny ones.
"Dada, play!" Riel squealed, placing a toy train between them. Edward now looked torn, looking between Riel and myself. "Dada!"
And he was won over. He settled back down and began to play with Riel again. The site was adorable. And he had us wrapped around his little finger.
"While you two play, I'm going to do the laundry and clean up around the house."
"Bella, do you realise how big this house is? We do have two maids to do those chores."
"Edward, if I don't do something productive, like clean, I'll go insane. I just have the urge to have stuff cleaned my way."
"Motherly instincts." He hummed happily, messing up Riel's already unruly hair.
"Riel." I called out. He instantly looked my way, eyes wide, waiting. "I love you."
"Wuv you tew." And his attention was turned back to the train. I smiled and let my gaze wonder over to Edward. He was staring back with such intensity, I almost wanted to tell him to join me in the laundry room but I
gotta hold myself back. Edward isn't the only one wanting to get some action.
"Edward," I called softly, my heart speeding up when he gave me a seductive smile. "I love you."
"I love you too."
"Oh, and I want a girl this time."
A/N: Was anyone shocked when they saw the "2 years later" part? I was! I thought "Wow.. this it is, it's over." I'm getting misty eyed.
Also, in chapter 12, I asked you guys what gender should the baby be and what name you'd like he/she to have. I picked SakuraAngel2001 because I like the name Riel and she was pregnant with her second son and was planning on naming him "Riel". But she probably already had him.. so a big congrats to her!
I'd just like to thank everyone who stuck with me until the end. Those are the ones who are worth it, when there's shitty situations in the story, they suck it up and wait it through. Kudo's to you!
Did anyone like how I protrayed Jane? I wanted to give her that "innocent" girl look but actually have a wicked side to her.(People who seen Elfen Lied, think like Mariko!)
One more thing.. TWO reviews away from 1000 reviews.. LOL and HOLY GOSH! Never imaged to get that much for this story, let alone over 100 reviews! Mega thanks to the next two reviews who will get me the big 1000 and those after!
Thanks for reading Blinding Beautiful.
