Chapter Seventeen 'Half Breeds'
I held onto my neck as Edward quickly came to my side after snapping Demetri's neck. "My Bella," he said running his hand along my face. "Are you okay?" He asked causing me to smile.
"Now I am," I said before he pulled me into a kiss.
"Oh get a room," Emmett said causing Aro to laugh with the others.
"Wait," I said pulling away from my husband and standing up. "There are children here," I said with a panic looked on my face.
"Yes," Aro said softly. "They are half breeds," he said softly.
"What are we going to do?" I asked in a low voice. "We have to understand them," I said causing Carlisle to nod his head.
"I think me and Aro's medical staff can come up with something," Carlisle said glancing at Aro.
"Of course," Aro said. "These kids are just innocence," he said firmly. "I will get Jane on it right away," he said looking over at the small girl next to her. She nodded her head and walked away.
"We should get the humans back here," I said causing Edward to nod his head. "We have a lot of explaining to do," I said sighing.
"Come on," Edward said taking my hand and leading me outside.
I looked around at all these young children. I couldn't believe that they were half vampire and half human. Is that even possible? They ate regular food and drank blood.
"Carlisle," I said as he walked through with Aro and Jane.
"They are amazing," Carlisle said with a smile on her face. "I mean they can drink blood, they can eat food, and most of them will age like a normal human," he said.
"What do we do now?" Bella asked softly. "I mean humans know about us now," she said. "I think we should learn to coexist," she said causing everyone to nod.
"It's about time," Emmett said rubbing his hands together.
"What if they try to kill us?" Jane asked causing me to sigh.
"Just like some of our kind try to kill them," I said softly. "There are bad humans just like there are bad vampires but most of them are very kid," I said looking over at my Bella.
"Bella," a woman's voice replied.
"Sandy," Bella said coming over to her. "Did you get the parents with the children?" She asked with concern all over her face. That was my Bella always taking care of others.
"Yes," Sandy said nodding her head. "Except for one," she said moving to show a little girl. Bella knelt down to her and the girl held onto a small doll.
"Edward," Bella said looking over at me and I nodded my head. We would take care of her together.
I stood up in front of all the humans that my once brother tortured for months. "I first want to say that I am so sorry for my brother's treatment to you and your families," I began. "I want you to know that not all of us are like that," I said looking at each of them. "I hope that we could find a way to coexist, to take care of another, to be a family," I said causing all of them to cheer.
It would be a long hard road but we could make it.
I sat down on the bed with the little girl when Edward walked into the room. "Hungry," he said to her and she nodded her head.
"Are you sure you don't mind this?" I asked causing him to smile.
"Of course not," Edward said touching the little girls hair. "She looks just like you," he said with a smile on his face. "And I see how happy you are," he said looking up at me.
"You are so good to me," I said with a smile on my face. "Rennesme," I said getting the little girl to look up at me. "This is your daddy," I said motioning to Edward.
"Daddy," Rennesme stated with a smile and Edward just beamed with joy.
"That is right," Edward said softly. "Me and your mommy are going to take good care of you," he said touching her nose.
"What is going to happen with the rebels?" I asked causing him to whisper softly.
"They are going to be taken care of," Edward said causing me to nod. I knew what that meant and I was glad that we wouldn't have to deal with them anymore.
I walked into Bella and Edward's room. "Hey," I said with a smile on my face. I looked over at the little girl and me and the rest of the family came through.
"Hi," Bella said as the little girl scooted closer to her. "Hey," she said calming her down. "This is your family," she said with a smile. "This is your aunt Alice and Rosalie," she replied.
The little girl looked at me and Rosalie with uncertainty. "Those are your uncle Emmett and Jasper," she said pointing to them. "And your grandmother and grandfather," she said smiling.
"I got you something," I said opening the bag. "I thought you might want a new one," I said holding up a doll. The girl reached out to grab it and looked down at the doll.
The girl jumped into my arms and giggled slightly. "I knew she'd like you," Bella replied.
"What is her name?" Esme asked causing Bella to smile.
"Its Rennesme," Bella replied. "After you and my mother," she said smiling.
"Oh Bella," Esme said looking like she was about to cry. All of us stayed around Rennesme as she played with the doll. Everyone was finally coming together even with the new race of half breeds.
