Chapter 20- I Love You

Edward Pov.

Bella looked perfect, that was the only word that I could think of. She was in the hospital bed with her hair around her head like a halo and a soft smile on her face. She looked so peaceful. The nurse was finishing up checking over all the machines that Bella was attached to and turned to leave.

"She will be out for a while probably 3 to 5 hours, but when she wakes up please hit the call button to let us know. We will be in to check up on her every ten minutes." And with that she left.

"Hey Edward" Alice's thoughts got my attention. "That nurse does not know what she is talking about. Bella will be awake in about 45 minutes." She sounded a little irritated at the nurse. "You would think that they would be able to estimate more accurately when a person will wake up from an educed sleep" she finished up. I had to laugh a little at this. Apparently Alice had been having some problems with this nurse during her visits to see Bella. Whatever it was that she had done to make Alice so mad I ignored it. I had more pressing matters to attend to. I had not forgotten the conversation that I had with Bella earlier. She would tell me what happened, all of it, but first I needed her to get better and wake up.

"Edward" she said in her sleep. I loved the fact that she talked in her sleep. I would never tell anyone this but it was kind of a turn on to have her moan my name while she slept, I missed that sound so much.

"Edward?" It was not a moan this time but more of a panicked question. Like a parent who can't find their child on the playground. I instantly felt guilty.

"Shhh love I'm right here." I leaned over and gave her a kiss on her forehead and stroked her cheek with my hand. She reached up grabbed my hand and cuddled it under her chin like a little kid would do with a teddy bear. I just sat there and watched her sleep while she cuddled my hand.

Another 30 minutes passed before anything really happened. Bella was starting to wake up. I could tell this without the 1 million monitors that she was hooked up to and I guessed that it would be about 45 seconds before she opened her eyes. And I was right, she still looked sleepy but she turned over and smiled up at me.

"So it wasn't a dream." I felt so guilty and it must have showed on my face.

"O Edward I did not mean to make you sad."

"I know love, how are you feeling?"

"Better than I have felt in a long time." I chuckled.

"Well that's good. I have good news."

"What's that?" She looked so cute when she was confused.

"Well I talked to you father."


"Well he is not going to try and shoot me. As a matter of fact he said that I could stay here with you while you were in the hospital."

"Wow, no way. I guess he did listen."

"Bella what do you mean by that?"

"Well before I went into surgery I told him that I was getting back together with you. He was not too happy but we had a quick heart to heart and I told him that if he wanted me in his life that he would have to try and get along with you. I also told him all of this" she gestured to her leg and the hospital room "was not your fault but mine."

"Bella I don't want you to start anything with your father because of me."

"What are you telling me, if I left his house I would be homeless?" She was making fun of me now. "Honestly Edward I don't want to start anything with him, but at the same time I will not have him trying to come between us."

"I love you Bella." I reached over to give her a kiss. It was like I was in heaven. We broke apart because Bella had to breathe. "And speaking of all this you never did tell me what happened."

"Well um you seeā€¦ I don't know where to start." She looked scared, was it because of me? I was instantly on guard and felt the need to reassure her.

"How about the beginning, my angel, and I just want you to know that no matter what you have done I will always love you."

"Thanks well here it is." She stopped to take a deep breath. "After you left I was like a zombie, it got so bad that my dad had to hospitalize me."

Wait why would he do that I thought? "Why?"

(A/N Sorry to interrupt the story but quick thing u need to know. Italics are Edwards's thoughts in this Paragraph.)

"If you want to hear this story Edward then you can't interrupt me." My feisty little Kitten she is so cute when she is annoyed. "Because I stopped eating and drinking." WHAT? SHE WAS NOT EATING? "I was literally wasting away. Well I was in the hospital for a while when Alice came to see me. After a long while and I do mean long they let me leave. I was still unhappy, but by a fluke accident I found out that by doing something dangerous I could remember you better so that's what I did. I got hurt because the main way I was doing this was by riding a motorcycle."

I was stunned, no I was beyond it. This all did happened because of me? I knew it.

"Edward this is not your fault." The hell it's not!

"I was the stupid person to do it." Before I could say anything the nurse walked in. I had forgotten all about her.

"O you're awake. How are you feeling?"

"I feel fine." She pulled me a little closer as if she was afraid that the nurse was going to kick me out. As if this little human could.

"Well I'm going to give you some medicine now to help with any pain. It will make you a little sleepy and you should not fight it ok? The quickest way to recovery is to sleep." She walked over to inject some thing into her IV.

"I will be back to check on you later." And with that she left.

"Edward" I could tell that she was already sleepy from her voice.

"It's ok love I will be right here when you wake up, get some sleep, we can talk later. I love you."

I kissed her forehead as she let out a big yawn.

"I loves yous tooooo." Her words were slurred but I still heard her.

We still had a lot of things to work out. This, us, and how we would precede, the wolves, and this Jacob guy, and a few other things. But I knew that no matter what, we would handle it together. "I will love you forever" I told her back but she was already asleep.
