A/N: Ok so this is a new story:
Bella and Edward were high school sweethearts. Their relationship ends when Edwards parents decide to move away. Bella gets some shocking news but she can't get hold of Edward. What has happened? Will they ever see each other again?
It's been 3years. 3years I have waited for him to come back, 3years I have waited for him, and for 3years I have tried to find him.
My name is Isabella Marie Swan; I am 21 years old and have a 2year 3month old daughter named Elizabeth Rose Cullen. Her father, Edward Cullen and I dated for 2years in high school; we were madly in love with each other.
Edward left 3years ago, his farther decided they should move to Phoenix, Arizona. He promised me he would come back, the night before he left. We gave each other our virtue, which was the night I became pregnant with lizzy.
It wasn't until three months after he left that I found out I was pregnant. I tried to contact Edward to tell him, but his phone was disconnected and I had no such luck finding him in the directory, and he never responded to my emails. Every day I spend an hour searching online for him, and everyday I become more and more depressed.
I wanted lizzy to have her farther, to know who farther. She is a spitting image of him, bronze hair and green eyes. She is absolutely gorgeous. It almost breaks my heart to look at her.
I stood up from my spot on the couch and made my way up stairs to get myself showered and dressed for the day.
I pulled on my dark blue jeans and my black tank top then threw a black zip up jacket over the top. I straightened my hair put a little bit of make up on and went to get lizzy out of bed.
"Come on princess, time to get up" I whispered to her sleeping form as I lightly picked her up while she rubbed her eyes.
I smiled at her a kissed her lightly on the cheek before making my way down the stairs to give her some breakfast. While I was feeding her the phone rang.
"I'll be right back darling" I told lizzy as I got up from my seat and walked over to the phone.
"Bella! Oh good you haven't left yet. Listen I need to meet up with you I have something to tell you." My best friend Alice chirped into the phone, only she would be this happy and 8am.
"What is it Alice?" Normally she would just tell me over the phone, why does she need to meet up with me?
"Just meet me at starbucks in half an hour, I'll tell you then. Love you bye" I stood there looking at the phone for a minute, that was weird I thought.
I finished feeding lizzy, walked outside and put her in her car seat. Lizzy goes to crèche everyday for 4hours while I do the house work and shopping.
"Bye baby, I'll be here to pick you up later. I love you possum" I kissed the top of her tiny head and handed her over to her carer.
I jumped in my car and drove down to starbucks.
I walked inside and ordered and coffee, once my coffee was made I started looking for Alice.
I saw her sitting at the very back of the shopping waving at me over the all the heads.
"So Alice, what is it that you need to tell me?" I said with a worried expression on my face.
"Well, ahh – you – see" Alice said with a very pained looking face.
"What is it Alice?" I lightly laughed; she looked as if she would pop if she thought any harder.
"Well, I saw someone today" Well done Alice, I see people every day I thought sarcastically.
"Ok. Who did you see?"
"Edward" Edward? See Edward is her brother. Why didn't Alice move? She refused to, she was happy in design school here in Port Angele's. Well we lived in Forks but her course was in Port Angele's.
"What do you mean you saw Edward?" Does this mean he is back? I have to see him
"He has moved back Bella. He came over last night to see me" OMG he is finally back, my Edward is finally back
"Well, what did he say? Where is he? Oh wow I have to go see him. I need to tell him about Lizzy" I had a huge smile on my face.
"Bella, he isn't alone. He has a girlfriend. Well a fiancé to be more exact" She carefully looked at my face as I went from happy to sad, to angry What and he didn't have the decency to call me and tell me not to wait for him.. What a pig.
"Bella are you ok?" Alice looked concerned.
"Does it look like I am ok? I have a 2year old daughter, I have EDWARDS 2year old daughter. I tried finding him with no such luck. He said he would come back. He told me – I – omg" I was crying now and Alice wrapped her tiny arms around my waste.
"Alice, please tell me where he lives. I still need to tell him about Lizzy" She looked and me cautiously but grabbed a pen and paper and wrote down his home address. Which just so happened to be 2block from my house.
I bid farewell to Alice and headed toward Edwards house. It only took me about 10 minutes to get there. By the time I arrived, I wasn't upset anymore. I practically had steam coming out of my ears as I stomped up to his front door and banged my fist hard against it.
Edward was the one, who answered the door, but he didn't say anything, he just stood there staring at me with a shocked expression on his face.
"Hello Edward. It's not polite to stare you know" I said in a cold tone.
"Bella, w-what are you doing here?" It took him 2minutes to reply finally he speaks I thought to myself.
"I think the question is, what are you doing here" Again in a cold tone. He flinched a bit before walking out of the house and shutting the door behind him
"I live here, I just moved back"
"So I already heard" I was getting angrier by the second.
"Why are you here Bella? At my house?" I glared at him, it was now or never.
"Well, you remember 3years ago how you left. The night before when you took my virtue and promised me you would come back for me?" I paused "Well when you left, you left something with me" I paused again, this time to see his reaction. He looked confused, I felt like slapping him. The tears started to swell up in my eyes.
I pulled out a photo from my purse and looked at while I told him the next thing
"The thing you left me with Edward was a baby. Congratulations you have a daughter" The tears were pouring over the edge of my eyes. I handed him the picture, it was taken when Lizzy was born I was holding her while she was sleeping and I was staring at her with all the love and devotion I had in me.
Edward stared at the photograph speechless so I decided to keep talking.
"Her name Elizabeth Rose Cullen. Yes I named her after your mother; I thought you would appreciate that. Her middle name is Rose because of Rosalie, she helped me through everything." I stopped to wipe a few tears off my cheeks, and looked up at Edward who was staring at me with a pained expression on his face.
I started to back away towards my car "I tried finding you Edward, Every day since I found out up until now I tried to find you, I called you mobile, I emailed you, and I looked on the directory. I wanted to tell you, I wanted you to come back so we could be a family. I wanted you to be able to watch Lizzy be born, and grow up. She is 2 now. She looks exactly like you Edward; I have to look into her eyes every day. It almost kills me because I can see you in her eyes. Her first word was dada, I cried when she said that, it broke my heart that my baby didn't have her farther. You just disappeared; I didn't think I would ever see you again."
And with that I got in my car, tears streaming down my face as I sped all the way home.
I sat in my car for about half an hour wiping away my tears and taking deep breaths to calm myself. I looked at the clock and realized I still had an hour before I had to go pick up Lizzy, so I made my way inside and did a bit of house work before leaving again
"Hey pumpkin I missed you" I said as I picked up Lizzy and made my way out to the car. I buckled her up in her car seat and made my way back home.
"Mama where dada" My daughter asked as she crawled over to me.
I looked at her with sad eyes and picked her up to hug her tightly to my chest. I didn't say anything to her; I just held her close as a few tears slipped from my eyes.
The rest of the night went by pretty fast; it was like I was in zombie mode. At about 7pm after I put Lizzy to bed, the phone rang.
"Hello" I said in a monotone
"Bella?" The angel like voice sang in my ear
"How did you get my phone number Edward?" I asked with no emotion in my voice
"Alice gave it to me. Look we need to talk"
"I thought we already spoke this afternoon"
"No, you spoke and didn't let me get a word in sideways"
"Fine, when did you want to meet?" It was Friday night and I was tired and just wanted to go to bed. I couldn't be bothered arguing at the moment.
"Well I was hoping I could come over now to talk, if that's alright with you"
"It's not ok with me, but sure if you must. I'm guessing Alice gave you my address as well"
"Yeah she did. I'll be over in about 10minutes" and he hung up
I raced up stairs to clean myself up and make myself half presentable, and then waited for Edward to arrive.
Not long after there was a knock on my door. I slowly stood up taking in a deep breath while I opened up the front door.
"Come in Edward take a seat" I said as Edward made his way into my house, looking around then taking a seat on my couch.
I sat opposite him and stared at him intently as he fiddled with his thumbs.
"Bella, I-I'm sorry I never came back. Can I explain?" I looked at him for a minute before nodded my head for him to continue.
"When I left, you know I was forced. I didn't want to leave you. I was going to come back, but it had been a year and I thought you would have moved on by then. I shouldn't have just assumed like that and I'm sorry for jumping to that conclusion. In regards to why you couldn't contact me, I lost my phone at the airport; I couldn't get my numbers back. I never check my email anymore either. Bella I'm so so sorry! I didn't know you were pregnant" He stopped to catch his breath and looked at me intently.
"You could have written, or gotten my number off Alice. I waited for you Edward. I was still waiting today when I found out you had come back. I never moved on" I whispered
He looked at me with sad eyes. "Don't worry, I won't come between you and you fiancé, but I thought you needed to know that you have a daughter"
He was about to reply when Lizzy started screaming from her room upstairs, I shot up a run all the way to her room. She was sitting in her cot with tears running down her check. I picked her up and held her close
"Shh sweetie it's ok mummy's here baby" I whispered in her ear, I stood there bouncing her lightly for a while as her sobs quietly subsided though she wasn't asleep.
Edward came up stairs and stood in the door way looking at us as I hummed a lullaby to my - our Daughter.
I walked past him and went down stairs to the kitchen to heat up a bottle for her, again Edward followed me. I looked up at him while the bottle was heating in the microwave; his eyes were fixed on Lizzy.
"Do you want to hold her?" I asked him, his eyes shot up to me and then back to Lizzy.
"Do you want to tell her who you are, or should I? Don't tell her though if you're not going to stay in her life" Edward looked at me like I was crazy.
"Of course I want to be in her life. And maybe you should tell her. She knows you." I smiled and nodded my head.
I grabbed her bottle out of the microwave and walked over to the couch and gave it to her to have. I pushed a cushion tightly against her so she wouldn't roll off the couch and went back in the kitchen to make myself a coffee.
"Edward, would you like a coffee?" I called out to him
"Yes please, white two sugars" He called back.
Once I made the coffee I headed back into the lounge room to see lizzy had finished her milk and Edward was staring at her again. I gave him his coffee and sat down next to Lizzy taking her now empty bottle and picking her up so she was facing Edward.
"Sweetheart, would you like to know who this man is?" I asked her. She scrunched up her little nose and looked at me then back at Edward.
"Dada" She said, my eyes grew wide and I heard Edward choke on his coffee.
I looked up at him and saw him smiling.
"Yes baby, he is you daddy" She looked back up at me then at Edward and reached her tiny little hands towards her farther.
"Dada" She cried to him. Edward looked up at me and I nodded my head for him to take her.
He carefully lifted her from my lap and sat back down with her. He looked into her eyes and then hugged her tightly.
I felt my heart beating fast. My daughter finally has her farther I wiped away the couple of tears the fell from my eyes as I looked at the image in front of me and smiled. Lizzy looked over joyed and Edward had a smile on his face too. My baby was finally complete.
