DISCLAIMER: I don't own twilight! Please read and review! I will takeONLY constructive criticism on my story!
Hello my freaky darlings:
Okay I have made some changes! Thank you very much Ysar for the constrictive criticisms on this story. I grammar checked there are some things that I wanted to leave in this story because I liked it very much.
The moment that Bella told me that she wanted to tell Charlie about us getting married, I was astonished. When I placed her ring on her third finger, it sent wonderful warmth down my cold spine.
We sat on the loveseat waiting for Charlie to go come home. I didn't know what kind of mood he would be in after work. I didn't know how his day at work had gone. But I knew that no matter what Charlie was like, I was not going to allow Bella to leave this room without telling her father the wonderful now. I figured that telling Charlie about us getting married wasn't going be easy for Bella. I knew that it was going to be more of challenge for Bella to tell her father.
I turned to look at her, hoping that she would smile back at me and reassure me that this was what she truly wanted. Her body was here but I could only imagine where her mind was.
Suddenly I heard Charlie's cruiser turn the corner and headed down their street. At this point, I heard Charlie thoughts.
Man, it was a good day at work today. Boy, I 'm tired. I wonder what Bella is making for dinner tonight? OH MAN! You have to be kidding me! HE is here again! I swear he spends more time here then I do. Now what is the reason for him being here? When Bella is not around, I am going to have a talk with him about spending less time here at our house. Or has Bella asked him to move in without telling me? Charlie scoffed.
I chuckled quietly so Bella wouldn't hear. I didn't want to make her feel more nervous then she already felt now. He parked while grunting to himself. I saw him slug his way towards the door. I saw the keys rattling in the door and Charlie stomped his boots at the door. I saw Bella trying to move hand out of view. If I hadn't known better, I could have sworn that Bella was trying to hide her hand from Charlie.
"Stop fidgeting, Bella. Please try to remember that you're not confessing to a murder here."
"Easy for you to say."
I grabbed her warm hand and placed it in my stone cold hand. I placed both of our hands to where Charlie could see the reason why we were here. Once the door opened, Bella's heart rate jumped and her breathing became uneven. She started to hyperventilate.
"Calm down, Bella".
Suddenly Charlie lost control of the front door and it slammed against the wall. Bella jumped, nearly leaping into my lap.
I hope they heard that. Why is it that every time I 'm here, he always has to be here? Doesn't he have a house of his own and family too!
"Hey, Charlie," I said, with ease in my voice.
"No!" I heard Bella tell me under her uneven breath.
"What?" I turned to face her with narrow eyes. I saw fear in her eyes, which only told me that she was worried about the outcome of the matter.
"Wait till he hangs up his gun!"
I couldn't help but laugh under my breath. How silly my Bella was being. If she only knew, what Charlie was thinking now.
Oh God! What does he want now? Something does not seem right…I have a strange feeling in my gut right now. Maybe I should keep my gun on my just in case.
I smiled to myself and ran my free hand through my hair. Charlie came around the corner with narrow eyes. He spotted us sitting in the loveseat with our hands together. I saw that he quickly changed his facial expression before Bella noticed.
This is really starting to get old. Why does he always have to touch her… "Hey kids, what's up?"
"We'd like to talk to you." I said to Charlie. "We have some good news to tell you."
In my heart, good wouldn't be the perfect word to use at this moment. It was wonderful news. No, It was unbelievable news. Endless words couldn't describe what I was feeling at the moment. My sweet Bella would be my wife. Finally, today would be the day that I could say it aloud. If Bella wasn't so embarrassed by the idea, I would shout it from the highest mountain top or building. I would even post it on a huge bulletin board for the whole world to know.
I don't like where this is going. I knew it! I felt something different! I was right to have my gun on me. I have one thing going through my head right now and it's not good. Not good at all! I'm going to let Bella say it first before jumping to the wrong…or should I say right conclusion. Charlie grunted.
"Good new?" He said, as he looked directly at Bella.
"Have a seat, Dad"
Charlie stomped his way to the recliner and sat at the very edge.
Okay, I'll have a seat but you had better get to the point young lady! I don't have time for tricks or silly riddles today. Not while HE is here!
"Don't get worked up, Dad." she said to him. "Everything is okay."
I grimaced to myself and tried my best not to look at Bella. Once more, I was thinking about the way she used the word okay. As I was thinking before, the best word to describe what was about to happen would have to be wonderful. I knew the way Bella viewed the world, it was much more different then the way I viewed the world. I've gone many decades walking this lonely damned world and now I found the one I wanted spend forever with. Priceless was all that really came to mind everything time I thought about it. If Bella, Charlie or Renee only really knew, how much that meant to me, that Bella was my only reason for existing.
"Sure it is Bella, sure it is. If everything is so great then why are you sweating bullets?"
"I'm not sweating." Bella responded quickly.
I took a peak out the corner of my eye and sure enough, Bella was sweating. Her heart rate showed no sign of slowing down. The more Charlie looked at her the more it pound against her chest. If only I could cradle her in my arms right now and let her know that everything was going to be just fine. My silly Bella was making everything more harder then it had to be for her. She was making a mountain out of mud pile.
I resisted touching her anymore then just holding her hand. I didn't want to give her a heart attack in front of Charlie.
I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! SHE'S PREGNANT! HE HAS MADE A MOTHER OUT OF MY BABY GIRL! A BABY HAVING ANOTHER BABY! Charlie shouted.
"You're pregnant!" he said, as he jumped up and down like a child. "You're pregnant, aren't you?"
My word, why was he thinking that? Why couldn't two people who are deeply in love just be with one another? I couldn't believe the crap that humans think about! After all, doesn't he understand what Bella meant to me? I already told Bella and myself that I couldn't… NO! I wouldn't live without her. I wouldn't rest until she was truly mine. .
I could feel Charlie's eyes burning a hole right through me.
"NO! Of course I'm not!"
Oh, thank God! Okay then! Then if Bella is not pregnant…um, then what is the good new? "Oh. Sorry." Charlie said, embarrassed by the suddenly outburst.
As Charlie sat back down in the recliner and the color to his face came back. I knew that he believed Bella. I didn't need to read his thoughts for that. Just the look in his eyes and the sincerely in his voice said it all. Bella once more started to sweat again and now her blood pressure was going up. Charlie and I gave her a few minutes to collect herself.
The minutes passed and I became worried that Bella might not have the courage to tell her father. After all, she was human and fear was always the one reason not to follow through with things in life. Bella turned to me and I just smiled back at her.
I rather hear it from my daughter what the news is! But I guess I have no choice but to hear it from Edward! Charlie scorned.
"Charlie, I realize that I've gone about this out of order. Traditionally, I should have asked you first" -What does a teenage boy about traditions- "I mean no disrespect, but since Bella has already said yes and I didn't want to diminish her choice on the matter" - I can't see why? After what happened last year- "instead of asking you for her hand, I am asking you for your blessing. We're getting married, Charlie. I love her more than anything in the world, more than my own life, and-by some miracle-she loves me that way, too." -Yea I can't see why either on why she loves you! - "Will you give us your blessing?"
MY BLESSING! FOR GETTING MARRIED? This has to be some joke! I 'm waiting for someone to jump out and say 'Just joking Charlie'! After everything, that HE put her through last year! Leaving her all last year and nearly causing her to lose her mind! All the crying she did when HE left! Then after nearly 6 months, she forgives HIM for all of that!
I saw Charlie quickly scanning us before he spotted the ring on Bella's finger. Charlie began holding his breath when his eyes caught sight of it. First color to hit Charlie's face was red, red to purple, purple to blue. I saw that Bella was holding her breathing, looking similar to Charlie. Bella started to get up and I quickly grabbed her hand, giving her a light squeeze.
"Give him a minute." I said to her. I said it so low that Charlie didn't even notice that I said anything. She waited, allowing Charlie to come around.
The silence grew in the room.
The color returned to Charlie's face. I saw his lips pursed and his eyebrows drew together.
Okay…I got three options. Option one I could shoot him. I could ask Bella to give us a moment alone outside and then shoot him. But then again that would only hurt Bella and I really do respect Carlisle. Option two, I say no and make her wait by locking her in her room until I felt that she was ready. Make her drop out of school and keep her home school. But what would really stop Bella and Edward from running away together and never seeing her again. I guess then really, I will go with option three and just give her what she wants.
"I guess am not surprised," Charlie exhaled. "I knew I'd have to deal with something like this soon enough."
I felt Bella exhale and her heart slowed down.
"You sure about this?" Charlie demand.
"I'm one hundred percent sure about Edward."
That's not what I asked. Charlie mumbled.
Bella's answered surprised me. There was now confidence in how she answered Charlie.
"Getting married, though? What's the rush?" Charlie shrugged. Because after everything that he put you through, I don't want you to feel that you own him anything. I mean he owes you more after all.
I knew that Bella knew the answer as well as I did. I knew the only way to make Bella be my wife was if I agreed to damn her to this lifestyle. Bella continued to believe that I had a soul. But I had a plan after the wedding, while on out honeymoon. My plan would be to show Bella the benefits of being human. I knew that once I married her I would be able to show her all the human experiences that she would miss. I didn't want her to miss anything like I did. After all, I had to think about keeping Bella human for as long as possible. But for some bizarre reason she believed that she would miss nothing. The very thought of Bella not being human…cut me more then anything else in the world. She thought that she had to give up being human to be with me forever. How selfish was I being? Bella never really understood that I would be with her forever. But I knew how Bella felt at the thought of growing old around me and it pained her. I couldn't take Bella being in pain for anything.
"We're going away to Dartmouth together in the fall, Charlie," I said to him. "I'd like to do that, well the right way. It's how I was raised."
"Knew this was coming" Charlie said more to himself. On the other hand, possibly…
"Dad?" Bella said to Charlie. I felt her eyes on me, she was looking for some clue as to what her dad was thinking. I didn't look at her. I continued to listen to Charlie thoughts.
I got it! Option four… Renee. I know how Renee feels about Bella. But for her to hear that Bella is getting married at a young age. She would back me up on this matter. Charlie schemed. I might be able to postpone it long enough for Bells to decide-to really decide- what she wants in life. "Ha!" Charlie said aloud.
When Charlie shouted, Bella jumped by his sudden explosion. I watched Charlie laugh about the matter and it made me want to laugh. The very thought of how he was counting on Renee to stop the wedding from going forward made me even want to laugh more. Charlie's humor was quite amusing. Come on, was he serious about having Renee stop us? I knew how she felt about me but she also knew how I truly felt about Bella. Bella told her how she felt about me. I knew that Renee would want to see her daughter happy and if that meant being with me…no way would Renee talk Bella out of it.
"Okay fine" Charlie said, through his laugher. "Get married". Let us see how she handles this one. "But…"
"But what?" Bella demand.
Bella's heart began pounding against her chest again as Charlie said But. I knew that his plan was to have Bella tell Renee, but no doubts. Bella had nothing to fear, I knew Renee would be happy by the wonderful news.
"But you have to be the one tell your mom! I am not saying one word to Renee! That is all you!." Oh, man! I like option four! Yup! She can tell Renee. We all know how she feels about getting married so soon.
Bella's mouth dropped and her eyes widen. I couldn't wait, I took hold of Bella and hauled her towards the kitchen. She hesitated for a moment, looking at me like a child trying to squirm her way out the situation. But I knew that Renee would want to know, more then Charlie, that she was happy. I titled my head, pulling her hand towards me and placed a soft kiss on her hand. I smiled my crook smile at her. I knew that would make Bella's heart soar, which would then encourage her to make the call.
"Breath, Bella." I whispered.
She exhaled. Took the phone of the hook and began dialing.
"Hey Phil. Good and u? Yea, doing good. Can I speak to my mom? Thank." She smiled, looking at me.
"Everything will be okay." I reassured her.
"Hi Mom! No, just fine. Yea, he's great. No. Yea," Bella muttered. "Well, I have so news to tell you." She said, biting her lower lip.Enjoy!XOXO
