Alice Cullen 1901
A is for Angel
5 years later
"Daaaaaaaadyyyyyy," Lily cried and ran into my arms. "My ears hurt."
"Well, you wanted your ears pierced," I said hugging her to me.
After James was sent to jail, Alice's lawyer was able to get James to give her a divorce without any problems. She and I did not waste anytime and got married three months later. Soon after the wedding, we went to court where I adopted Lily and we had her last name changed to Whitlock.
"Make them stop hurting daddy," Lily sniffed into my shoulder.
"Honey, it will feel better soon," Alice, said coming through the door with Dylan trailing behind her.
"I know what might help." I told her and grabbed a little brown package. "Uncle Jared and Aunt Kim sent you something."
Lily took the present from me and ran off to her room. I looked down at Dylan who was smiling at me.
"I's got moneys daddy," he told me with a slight lisp.
"Yea, a whole dime. Don't spend it all in one place," I told him and ruffled his blond curls.
"Okay," he said and ran off.
Alice came over to and sat down on my lap. Placing her head on my shoulder, she sighed and looked at me.
"Long day?" I asked kissing the top of her head.
"Well, when Lily got her ears pierced she screamed and I mean screamed. She would not calm down at all. Then we stopped by the store and guess what Rose told me?" She asked and waited for me to guess.
"Emmett broke his thumb again?" I guess.
"No, she's pregnant," she told me with a sharp nod of her head.
"What! They already have four kids," I said. "We have two and have a hard time handling them."
"Are you saying that you don't want to have any more kids?" Alice asked looking at me seriously and in a nervous tone.
"Alice, what are you trying to say?" I asked lifting her off my lap and placed her next to me on the couch. "Are you pregnant?"
"I wanted to tell you later. Rose said I should give it some time," she said. "I don't want you to be mad."
"I love you," I told her and brought her to me.
"Mommy, can I wear the earrings Uncle Jared and Aunt Kim sent me?" Lily asked running back into the room.
"No, baby you have to wait a few weeks," Alice said.
"I want to wear them now," Lily cried. "Do I still have birthday cake left?"
"I's want cake too," Dylan, said tugging on my jeans.
"Babies don't get cake," Lily said to him.
"I no baby," he yelled at her and chased her when she took off running.
"Well, you sure you want to go through all of this again?" Alice asked and snuggled into my side.
"Yeah, I do. We should invite Edward, Bella and the kids over for dinner. We can tell them the great news," I suggested and I felt her nod against me.
"Daddy, Dylan bit me," Lily cried and jumped on top of me.
"Dylan, you know that you're not supposed to bite," Alice said putting our son on her lap.
"Sissy hit me," he said with a pout.
"Did you hit him, Lily?" I asked and she would not look at me. "Lily?"
"Maybe," she whispered. "He won't leave me alone. Daddy can we send him back?"
"No sweetie we can't send him back," I said.
He knew that Lily did not like having a little brother and thought that when she finds out about the new baby all hell will break loose. Lily had quiet a temper on her and I had a hard time calming her down.
"Go wash your hands and get ready for dinner," Alice said and Lily took off again with Dylan trailing right behind her.
"I think we should wait on telling her," I told Alice and she nodded her head agreeing with me. "Maybe if we have a girl she would be happy."
"You want a girl?" Alice asked and I shrugged.
"It doesn't matter," I told her. "I'm just happy that we're going to have another baby."
"Are you sure? Is it because Lily isn't biologically yours?" Alice asked me.
"Alice," I exclaimed and down the hall and saw that the kids were still in the bathroom. "Lily is mine. You know that I love her with all my heart, Alice."
"I know," she whispered. "I just sometimes think that you don't have to love her. She's not your daughter and I feel guilty."
"Stop," I said cutting her off. "Alice, forget about James and forget about everything else. All that matters is right now."
"Who is James, daddy?" Lily asked holding up her clean hands for us to see.
"He's no one, baby," Alice said picking her up.
"Okay," she said and shrugged her shoulders and reached her arms out to me. "Daddy, I want to see Uncle Jake this weekend."
"We'll see if we can make it down there, okay?" I told her and she cuddled into me.
All of a sudden, I had flashbacks of when she was a baby and always wanted me to hold. Those were her favorite bedtime stories and she loved the one about her throwing cake at Edward. Her eyes looked right into mine and she smiled at me.
If it were up to me, I would never let her know who James is. Alice wants to tell Lily about what happened in the past when she is older. Maybe it's for the best but maybe it's not. I guess that it does not really matter in the long run. She is my daughter and nothing is ever going to change that.
"Come on daddy the food is here," Lily said jumping from my lap and falling to the floor. "Daddy, my knee hurts."
"I swear you are just like Aunt Bella," I told her picking her up and sat her down in her seat at the table.
Lily giggled and shook her head. Alice and I watched as Lily stuck her tongue out at Dylan in turn making him cry. This was my family and I would not trade them for anything.
Thank you so much for reading this story. I hope my next Twilight stories get a responce like this one did. After my Jared and Kim story I will work on my other Jasper Alice story. I'm excited about both of them. Thanks again for reading.
