I DON'T OWN TWILIGHT :)
Bella's Point Of View
I leaned over the toilet bowl for the second time this morning, for the third time this week. Edward held my hair back from my face, all whilst rubbing my back gently. I spat the rest of it that was into the toilet bowl and pushed my self up from the toilet, flushing it. Edward grabbed a hair band off the counter and tied my hair up for me.
"How do you feel?" He asked, directing me over to the sink and picking up my toothbrush and applying toothpaste to it.
"What do you think." I meant to growl, but it came out as a croak, my throat was beyond sore.
"I'll get Carlisle to take a look at you." He replied putting the toothbrush into my mouth.
I shook my head. "No, I'm fine, it's probably just a flu or something." I answered quickly, making all the foam from the toothpaste in my mouth come dribbling out. I didn't want to make a big deal out of nothing, it was ridiculous to say the least. "I don't need you making a fuss over nothing." I murmured putting my toothbrush down and rinsing my mouth out before kissing his cheek.
"Bella, you can't keep denying that your sick." Edward sighed, leading me back downstairs to the couch where I'd been lounging before under my blanket.
"I'll be back to normal by tomorrow." I said whilst getting under my blanket and lying down on the couch.
"You said that yesterday, and the day before." He argued defensively. "If your still sick tomorrow, I'm taking you to see Carlisle, I'll see you there myself." He vowed, lying down on top of the blankets on the couch wrapping his arms around my waist protectively.
"I don't want to waste Carlisle's time. He has better things to do than deal with me." I yawned, nestling my head into Edward's chest.
"Absurd." Edward muttered so quietly it was almost inaudible, I was sure I wasn't meant to hear it. "Just sleep, love." He kissed me under my ear. "I don't want a sick bride."
"Mmmm." I smiled into his chest, whilst Edward began to hum me my lullaby once again, making me drift off into a peaceful slumber.
I awoke to the sound of a door slamming. I sat up wiping sleep from my eyes, and looked up at Edward.
"You can go back to sleep, it's only Charlie." Edward informed me, brushing my hair back.
I shook my head. "Can't. How long have I slept." I asked, beginning to sit up.
"Twelve hours." Edward replied. "It's six thirty."
I groaned and sunk my head into Edward's shoulder blade. How could I of slept for twelve hours? "You should of woken me up." I mumbled into him.
Someone was shuffling in the hallway, then I heard the front room door squeak open. I took my head out of Edward's chest to see who it was. Charlie stood with his hands on the back of the single seater looking at me.
"Hey Bells." He said whilst plopping himself down on the seat. "Edward." He grumbled, acknowledging his presence all whilst eyeing Edward and I, as if there was something wrong with the way we where lying on the sofa. To me it seemed perfectly innocent, me lying under all the blankets with Edward on top of all the blankets holding me around the waist from behind. Well, it did for an engaged couple. "You still sick?" He asked.
I nodded my head at him and went back to hiding my face in Edward's chest. An annoying ringing sound started to come from somewhere in the room. I looked out of Edward's chest to see him put his hand into his back pocket to retrieve his phone.
He flipped it open, and sighed quietly bringing it to his ear. "What do you want Alice?" He mumbled into the receiver. I could hear Alice squeak excitedly on the other side of the phone. "What for? … … And why can't you tell me .. .... . Your not throwing a party or anything, you know how much Bella despises them." I narrowed my eyes at him and scowled. Alice would do anything for a party. "No, she's not O K, I think she's coming down with something. … .. . All right, I'll be there in a minute." He said shutting the phone.
"What did she want?" I fretted.
"Don't worry, she didn't mention anything about a party, but she's keeping something from me, that's for sure." He soothed, tapping me gently on the nose, making me laugh. "But, I have to go, apparently she needs to speak to me about something." He said rolling his eyes. "Knowing Alice it would probably be something as absurd as asking what colour socks look best." I giggled and threw my arms around his neck and Edward leaned down to briefly kiss me, and pulled back, swinging his legs in a slow humanly manner over me, and stood up. "I'll see you tomorrow afternoon." I could feel my face drop. Edward smiled a small smile. "Alice is coming over, she said she's got good news, and I can't be there." His eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"What? A new sale on?" I grumbled, dreading tomorrow already.
Edward chuckled and ran a hand through his hair. "Anyway, remember what I said, if your still sick tomorrow." He reminded me. I groaned at him throwing my hands over my eyes. That made me feel awful, thinking about having to go see Carlisle about it. All I done was throw up, and feel a little faint and nauseous, Edward just had to make a big deal out of everything.
"I'll see you tomorrow, love you." He grinned, then bent down chastely placing a kiss on my forehead, and leaving the house.
I giggled, remembering how chaste is wasn't nearly three weeks ago, when we'd made love for the first time, right before coming back here to tell Charlie of our intentions to get married. I blushed and hid my face into the pillow underneath me.
"What are you laughing at?" Charlie asked curiously.
"Nothing." I bit my bottom lip to stop the giggle that was threatening to come out. I began to count back from ten in my head. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. I looked up at Charlie, and when I realised I had his attention I whispered, loud enough for him to hear. "Has he gone yet?" I tried to keep my voice quiet, I knew Edward would be able to hear me from here if he was still in his car.
Charlie got up and looked out the window. "No." I got up too quickly, and had to sit down because I felt slightly dizzy. "Bells, are you all right?" Charlie asked.
"Yeah sure, I just got up too quickly." I got up slowly this time and started to head towards the kitchen. "What do you want for dinner?" I asked to Charlie.
"I've got a new load of fish, I'll go get some now." He said walking out the front room to retrieve some fish. He walked back into the kitchen with two pieces of fish. I was more then happy that Charlie would do all the skinning and pulling the guts out for me, it was far too gruesome for my likings.
I got a tray out and Charlie put the pieces under the sink then placed them on the tray. I poured a little bit of lemon juice over them and shoved them in the oven to grill. Charlie sat down at the table with a glass of water and watched me.
"He really does worry about you." Charlie mused to me.
I rolled my eyes. "He's over reacting, I'm fine. All I did was throw up and feel dizzy, and he treats me like I've got the bionic plague." I set the timer for half an hour.
Charlie laughed, kicking his shoes off and resting his feet on the opposite chair. "I don't know why you won't let anyone look after you Bells, at least you've got Edward now."
I sighed and joined Charlie sitting at the table. I brought out my book which was placed on my chair. 'Wuthering Heights' I had to admit, it was really battered, but its story never ceased to amaze me. It captivated me in an entrancing way, too hard to give it up and stop reading.
The timer went off thirty minutes later. I got out the oven gloves and stuck them on. I opened the oven door, and was hit by the most disgusting smell ever. I ran over to the bin and threw up into it, thankful that Edward had decided to tie my hair up earlier that day.
I plopped myself down next to the bin and leaned my head back against the wall, worn out already. "Bells, you okay?" Charlie asked, getting out another cup and filling it with cold water, before walking over to me and pressing it into my left hand.
I smiled weakly at Charlie, taking the cup and bringing it up to my lips, taking a sip. It relieved my throat a bit, so I chugged the rest of it down. "Yeah, sure. You can dish up your own dinner, I don't think I can stand the smell for some reason." I muttered in confusion. I'd cooked fish before, I'd smelt fish before and I'd eaten fish before. But I couldn't bring myself to smell it, let alone eat it.
"Hmmm." Charlie sighed his forehead wrinkling together. "Maybe Edward's right to fuss over you, you might of caught some virus."
I rolled my eyes and got up slowly, making my way to the living room carefully, watching every step I took. I lay back down on the couch, watching the sports channel Charlie had put on.
Charlie walked back in with a plate five minutes later, and set it on my lap and handed me a knife and fork. "Thanks Dad." I smiled, and began eating the two eggs he'd fried for my dinner.
"Thought my cooking was awful?" Charlie laughed.
"It is." I joked "I just like the eggs so much." I said starting my second fried egg.
Charlie smiled at me gratefully and walked back into the kitchen, probably to finish his own dinner. I placed the plate on the floor right by where I was lying down on the couch, and drifted back off to sleep...
I was awoken by the shoving of my arm. "Wake up!" The impatient voice urged.
"Go away." I mumbled turning over into the couch.
"So help me Bella." A familiar voice came. "We've got stuff to do today."
"Yes, I suppose your right." I turned around to face her. "... Like sleeping for instance." I said before hiding my head under my covers trying to get back to sleep.
"Bella! Pleaseeeee." She stressed the word. "Please please please please, I promise you'll have a good time, a better than good time. Pleaseeeeeee Bella."
"Alice, please. Let me sleep." I sighed.
"No." She growled. "Get up now, your spoiling my
fun, or I'll ruin the surprise."
"You know I hate surprises." I grumbled. "So why bother with it?"
"I had nothing to do with this surprise. This was purely all you two's fault." She laughed. "Now get up." She shook my shoulder again.
I sat up on the couch. "What are you talking about?" I asked curiously.
"Not telling you till you come out with me."
I narrowed my eyes at her. "You're totally unfair, do you know that?" Alice just mischievously stuck her tongue out at me and laughed, carrying me upstairs by herself, and pushing me gently into the bathroom.
"Now get ready, or do I have to come in there and help you?"
I growled at her and began to get ready for my dreaded surprise.
I was in the car in twenty five minutes, only throwing up once this morning. It was an improvement from yesterday, at least I probably wouldn't have to see Carlisle about it now if it was getting better. Alice spent all of three hours dragging me into shops in Port Angeles, until saying we where going to go home, but we still had to pick up one more thing.
The last store Alice dragged me into was a drug store. Alice ordered me not to follow her, and that she'd come to find me once she'd found what she'd wanted, and skipped of down to the women's section. I rolled my eyes, what would a vampire need in a women's section in a drug store?
I continued down the isle, and found where the nausea pills where, and began browsing through them, picking up several packets. Alice skipped down the isle to where I was carrying a bag which appeared to have lots of little boxes inside of it.
"Time to go home now." Alice sang grabbing my hand and dragging me out of the shop. "You don't need those." She said putting them back on the shelf. "I don't recommend you taking them."
Alice pulled me out of the shop, not letting me say another word, and walked me to the car. I got in and done up my seat belt just as Alice got in, she threw the bag she was just carrying into the back seat. "So." I asked. "What was meant to be my surprise?" I asked. Did Alice buy me something without me knowing, thinking that was a surprise for me?
"Patience is a virtue, Bella!" Alice squealed,
clapping her hands and pulling out of the parking lot at the same
I hid my face in my hands.
Alice nudged my shoulder. "Bella Bella Bella, get out Bella!" Alice said whilst she was already up Charlie's front porch, and beginning to open the door with my keys. Where'd she get those from? Sly vampires, I thought. I followed in after her and met her where she was heading upstairs with the stuff she had bought me. I sat down on my bed, exasperated. Alice shoved a little white box in my hand, I looked at it blankly. Why would I need this? Why would Alice need this? Vampires couldn't have children. "Just go pee on it already." Alice said ushering me towards the bathroom.
I sat down on the toilet, and held the white stick underneath whilst I went toilet. I finished up and brought the test back into my bedroom. "What now?" I sighed.
"We wait." She grinned, taking the stick and placing it in the middle of my desk. I joined Alice on my bed, who was sitting cross legged. "You know, I wasn't completely sure at first, and I had to make sure about it first."
"OK... What are you talking about Alice?" I gave in.
"Really Bella? You can be so docile sometimes."
"Thanks." I muttered, rolling my eyes.
"I saw a vision of you..." She started. "I don't want to ruin this experience for you, so just wait till the pregnancy test has done its thing." She grinned wickedly.
I paused to liberate on the situation. Alice had seen
something in a vision of hers. With me. Involving a pregnancy test?
"I'm pregnant?" I whispered to Alice, a smile tugged at her
"I'm not one hundred percent sure just yet, the future isn't set in stone you know." She said knowingly.
I smiled at the thought of something Edward and I had created together growing inside of me. I tried not to think too much about it, loving something that didn't exist inside you is probably one of the first signs of madness. But if a little creature we'd made together really was growing inside me, I already loved it. Without a doubt.
Alice grinned widely. "What?"
"Isn't this the best human experience so far?!" She squealed, clapping her hands together. I rolled my eyes. "Oh come on Bella, show some enthusiasm, I know you want to."
"Your only excited because you know the answer. I don't even know why I'm taking a pregnancy test. VAMPIRES CANT HAVE CHILDREN." I stated.
"Your about to prove yourself wrong. Twenty minutes is up, go have a look." She said bouncing on my bed hyper actively.
I walked over to my desk and looked down at the little stick. A red plus just sat where it was blank twenty minutes ago. Positive. I was pregnant...
