A/N: sorry sorry sorry! I no u all probably like h8 me right now! Plz don't tear my head off! I've been Soooooo busy and on top of that had the worst case of writers block! I'm really sorry! Also, I'd like to say this is going to be the last chapter of this story. I hate saying it but I think this is the good way to end it.
Previously: "I'm glad you like it love." he said kissing my gently on the forehead, "But I think it's time we get some rest. I don't know about you but I'm exhausted."
I smiled and nodded. My head rest against my soft pillow while I had the greatest person in the world lying next to me.
Bella's POV: (February 25th.)
I hate this! I am over 8 months pregnant and it is horrible! Constant sickness, constant craving, sore all the time, I can hardly stand up without help! Alice is pretty much the same but not as bad, remember, she only has one baby in there, I have two!
I was on the living room couch watching some comedy called Fever Pitch, it was pretty funny but I was extremely bored. I was playing around with the necklace Edward had given me on my birthday. I never take it off unless I'm doing something that could harm it. I haven't been able to go to school the past two months but I've been taking online classes. Edward had been going to school until early this month just incase I go into labor early. He says he's not taking any chances; he too has been taking school courses online.
Some good things are that both Alice and Rosalie had there dream weddings. They both looked gorgeous!
"Edward," I yelled up the stairs to him. He had been upstairs doing laundry or something.
He jogged down the stairs, "Yeah? Is everything all right?"
I nodded, "Do you mind if I invite Rose and Alice over? I'm like insanely bored!" I groaned.
He chuckled, "That's fine, you don't have to ask you know."
"Well……" I started, "My phones on the dining room table and I really don't feel like getting up to get it." I've been so lazy this past week or two……..well, that's to be expected, isn't it?
"Okay, I'll get it," he laughed again retreating into the dining room. "What are you watching?" He called.
"Some movie called Fever Pitch with Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon, pretty funny." I called back in. "Ughhh," I moaned.
"Everything okay?" he asked coming back into the room and sitting down next to me.
I nodded, "One of the kids has a serious case of hiccups and my stomach keeps vibrating!" It was getting quite annoying. He nodded and started rubbing my feet, "That feels really good." I laughed.
"I'll keep doing it then," He told me and I smiled at him.
I then decided to call Alice first.
Brrrrrrrrrrrring, brrrrrrrrrrrring, brrrrrrrrrrrring.
"Hello?" Alice answered the phone.
"Hey Ali!" I exclaimed, "I was wondering if you wanted to come over, I'm going to invite Rose too."
"Sure!" she said with tons of excitement, "Would it be okay if Jasper comes too? He's just as bored as I am? Hey! You should invite Emmett as well as Rose too. The girls can hang out as well as the guys!"
"Perfect!" That really was a good idea. As much as I love Edward, ever girl needs some girl time right? It's just a given, a known fact!
"Okay, what time should we be there?"
I looked at the clock; it was currently 12:14, "Uh, is one okay with you?"
"Perfect! We'll see you guys then! Bye Bells." She said and hung up the phone.
"Jasper and Alice are coming," I told Edward who was still rubbing my feet, "Alice thought it would be a good idea for us to get some girl time. Plus you haven't been able to hang out with your friends too often. You've been to busy with me."
He smiled, "Honestly Bella, I don't mind, but that sounds cool."
I then picked up my phone again to call Rose.
Brrrrrrrrring, brrrrrrring, brrrrrrring.
"Hello?"came a voice that was not Rosalie's.
"Emmett?" I asked him confused, "Didn't I called Rosalie's phone?"
He laughed, "Yeah, she's in the shower. What's up?"
"Nothing really, I was just wondering if you and Rose wanted to come over……….we are really bored."
"Sure sounds like fun! What time?"
"Alice and Jasper are coming at one, that time good?"
"Yepp, that's good for us, see you then."
"Bye." I said then hung up. "They are coming too." He nodded his head letting me know that he heard me. "Uh, I've been thinking, we need to talk about something," I told him. Edward and I still hadn't discussed the name of our girl. I haven't really been able to bring it up but if we want our daughter to have a name we will have to talk about it at some point.
He looked a bit concerned, "Yeah?"
"Our daughter," I said simply.
"Ahhh, her name?" he asked with pain in his voice. I just nodded simply. He tousled his messy bronze hair. "Well, should we stick with Carlie Renee Masen? That was going to be the name in the first place if we had…….one girl."
I nodded again, "That's what I was thinking." It really was though, my mother would have been so happy to have her name put into my child's. "And then Cammy—," I said breaking off. I couldn't finish the sentence.
He laid a reassuring hand on back as he inched closer, "I know what you mean, it's difficult to talk about isn't it?"
"Mmmmhmmm," I mumbled, he was now right next to me and I was practically on his lap. I looked up to him randomly, "I love you Edward."
"I love you too Bella, forever and always, never forget that." He said planting a soft kiss onto my forehead.
He moved his lips to mine and kissed me gently. I kissed him back until…."Uh oh." I said breaking away from the kiss very, very quickly.
"Bella?" he asked hesitantly.
"My water broke!" I exclaimed in a lot of emotions. I was all emotions combined….shocked…..scared…..nervous….thrilled…..excited…..happy, everything!
He got right to it, "Okay, you have your bag packed?"
"Yeah it's in our room," I told him. For about a month and a half now I've had a bag packed to take to the hospital just in case my water broke randomly, I had stuff like my tooth brush and extra clothes in there.
While Edward ran upstairs to get my bag I heard Alice yell from the door, "Bella, we are all here! Rose and Emmett and Jasper and I got here all at the same time! Funny isn't it?"
"Yeah, hilarious," I said a bit bitterly on account of a shocking pain just shot up my side, "Edward hurry the hell up!" I screamed.
They came in the living room the same exact time Edward came downstairs, "Bella you're…..?" Rosalie said stopping short.
I nodded as Edward helped me up from the couch, he put on arm around me to help support me, "Guys, hospital, meet us there!" Rose, Emmett, Jasper and Alice made room for us, "Call Carlisle and Esme!" Edward yelled quickly before slamming the door behind us. "How are you feeling?" he asked once he made sure I was in the car safely.
"Pain!" I said a little out of breath and sweaty, "I guess contractions? It really hurts," I moaned.
He took my hand in his, "I'll get you there as soon as I can. Just breath in and out, remember, like those birthing classes we went to?" He had demanded that I take birthing classes so that when the actual time came I was ready. We just did lots of breathing exercises and the men were told how to act and how to handle things without totally flipping out.
I nodded, trying not to cry. This really hurt! Not that I was expecting it to be a joy ride or anything, but this was serious pain! He started humming my lullaby and I breathed in and out.
Edward had his phone to his ear, I was assuming it was the hospital on account that he said, "Hello, my wife Isabella Masen is going into labor, have a wheelchair out and ready for her!" He waited for a minute, "Okay thanks," then hung up quickly.
"They will have a wheelchair waiting for you at the front of the hospital," he told me. I could tell he was trying to stay calm…….he wasn't doing all that good with it.
I smiled at him, "Thank you so much."
"I wish I could do more," he said helplessly, "I don't like seeing you in pain."
I shrugged, "There's nothing you can do about it," I kept on breathing in and out. Within a few minutes—felt more like a few hours—we were at the hospital. Edward parked in a fire zone, "Edward, you can't park here."
He stopped the engine and said, "I don't really care." He opened his door and came to my side.
He helped me out, "Thank you."
I was greeted by a nice woman with short red hair who had a wheelchair in her hand, "Isabella Masen I'm presuming?" she asked me and I nodded. I sat down in the wheelchair with the help of Edward and the nurse started to talk while she strolled me quickly down the halls. "My name is Maria and I'll be with you during the birthing process. I'm the one that works in the pregnancy ward so I know exactly what I'm doing; I have helped over fifty people deliver their babies. You're having twins right?"
I nodded, not wanting to bring up the fact that triplets were supposed to be the correct term. "Well, that's wonderful, not something you see everyday. Do you have names picked out?" She said trying to make conversation. We got to a room and she wheeled me in.
"Yeah," I told her, "Carlie Renee Masen and Collin Anthony Masen."
"Such pretty names," Maria cooed. "Okay, can you get up onto the bed, or do you need assistance?" she asked kindly.
"I'm fine," I told her genuinely. Edward still came to my side and helped me get up, "I said I'm fine." I snapped at him.
He backed off a bit once he helped me up, his hands facing me. Maria helped me get on a gown and put my IV in and some shots. That is when the pain really began. "Ugh!" I exclaimed squeezing Edward's hand tight, "This is your fault!" I yelled at him as Maria told me to push.
He laughed a bit, "You were just as much a part in this as I was."
"I don't care!" I yelled. Then, I heard crying.
"Carlie," Maria exclaimed passing her off to the nurse that had come in to help out. I sighed with relief, only one more to go.
"Come on Bella! I know you can do this," Edward said in my ear as he squeezed my hand tight. "You're strong!" he kept telling me, trying to encourage me.
"That's what you say! You're not the one going through this, now are you?" I yelled and the second baby crying came.
"Collin," Maria said, handing him off to the nurse as well. My whole body relaxed at this, I was done. "Congratulations Bella! You did it!"
I panted and nodded but couldn't find the words. They put a big cover over top of my sore body. It could have been five-ten minutes later that the nurse came over with both babies in her hands. "Would you like to hold them?" She asked me.
"Of course," I said, a smile now planted firmly on my lips. Edward sat down next to me. The nurse put one baby in my hand: Collin.
"Give Carlie to Edward please," I asked the nurse nicely, not looking away from the baby in my hand.
"Sure," she said handing Carlie over to Edward. I looked up to see my little girl.
"Edward…..they're beautiful." I exclaimed. He nodded in agreement his eyes taking turns glancing at both of our babies. Both the babies had pale skin—I wasn't surprised by this, both Edward and I have always been pale. Also, they both seemed to have quite a lot of hair, Collin's hair matched mine, the dark chocolate brown while Carlie had Edward's bronze hair in beautiful ringlets.
Edward and I laughed and gushed as we stared into the faces of our wonderful kids. Our perfect kids…..although they put me through so much pain it's not even funny, it was all worth it.
* * * *
Five years later:
Everything has been perfect! Alice ended up having her baby the day after I had mine: February 26th and named her Elizabeth Lynn Hale, Lizzie for short. Jasper and Alice bought a three bedroom house about one mile away from ours. Rosalie and Emmett's baby was born on May 25th with the name of Thomas Charles Hale, Tommy for short. They bought a house a little farther down the road but still easy enough to get to. All wonderful and all unique.
"Carlie," I called up from the kitchen, "Collin! Come on down, everyone's going to be here soon!" We were having a nice family get together at my house. Edward and I were cooking the main course, Alice and Jasper were bring snacks, Rosalie and Emmett were bringing drinks and Esme and Carlisle were bringing desert.
"Okay mommy," Carlie said coming down the stairs first. "Like my dress?" She asked Edward and me twirling around and giggling. Her hair had stayed the same bronze color as Edward's and the ringlets in her hair just grew. She had my eyes though.
"It's beautiful," I said picking her up and kissing her cheek.
"It makes you look like a model!" Edward exclaimed.
"Thank you daddy," She said reaching out for him. I laughed and handed her over.
"Is Collin coming?" I asked her.
She shrugged and at the top of her lungs yelled, "Collin Masen, get your butt down here Mr.!"
"I'm coming, I'm coming." He said strolling down the stairs. His hair was an exact replica of mine except sorter, although he had Edward's eyes, sort of a mix and match of both of us.
"Why, don't you look handsome," I said and he blushed. That's another thing he got from me, blushing. The kids had thought they were old enough to pick their own outfits. He ended up picking a nice white shirt and black pants. He said he wanted to look exactly like a grown up!
The doorbell rang and Edward said, "Why don't you two go greet whoever's there."
"Okay!" Carlie exclaimed and grabbed Collin's hand, "Come on!"
They giggled as they ran off. "They are so adorable!" I gushed, planting a kiss on Edward's cheek.
He laughed, "Yeah they are, we couldn't have asked for anything more."
I was about to respond but I heard Carlie giggle and scream, "Uncle Emmett put me down!"
I laughed and went to greet them. Within five minutes everyone was here. Collin, Carlie, Lizzie and Tommy all sat at the kiddy table which was about five feet away from where the grownups sat.
The dinner went nice, we had been trying to get together for such a long time but we could never get the whole family together. Either someone was sick, someone had a thing at pre-school, a parent had plans, something always got in the way. Today was great though, we laughed through out the whole dinner, talking about nonsense just like when we were younger.
After everything was cleaned up and our friends and family left, Edward, Carlie, Collin and I all gathered around the fire place, roasting marshmallows.
"Daddy," Collin said.
"Yeah?" He asked.
"I got sticky stuff all over my hands," he complained, melted marshmallow goo all over him. Edward and I chuckled and he wiped the stuff off with a paper towel. We were smart; we brought a whole role of them with us.
"This is nice," I said leaning into Edward's chest.
He kissed my hair as we watched our kids roast marshmallows and chatter along. "It really is, I don't think we could've asked for anything better."
I nodded, "I know we couldn't of. Best kids, the best friends." I looked up to him, "The best husband."
"The best wife." He said, tapping my nose. I laughed in response as we watched our kids giggle and the sparks fly in the fire.
