AN: Again I apologize for the long wait. I got inspiration for this chapter because today I am home sick. I know, third week of school and I'm already catching something. It sucks. Anyway, enjoy!!
Chapter 5: Sick
I was lying down on my bed with Bella when Nessie started rolling unevenly in her room down the hall. I turned over to look at the clock. 2:30 Am. She should be sound asleep right now.
"Baby, what's wrong?" Bella asked worriedly.
"Love, I'm not sure, but I think something is wrong with Nessie. It sounds like she's not sleeping soundly."
"Well let's go check it out."
We crept into her room as to not wake her, but when we opened the door we saw her sitting up sweating.
I quickly ran to her. "Sweetheart what's wrong?"
"Daddy, I don't feel too good." Right at that moment her face turned green. Bella quickly handed me her trashcan and Nessie throw up in it.
"Edward, you take her to the house while I take care of the trash."
I looked at Bella and nodded. Then I swooped Nessie into my arms and ran outside.
"Daddy what's wrong with me?" Nessie looked like she was about to cry. Here I was staring at my little girl worrying with many medical degrees under my belt, and I couldn't think of what was wrong. It could have been anything.
As soon as I opened the front door to the family house, Esme came running.
"Edward, how is she?" Worry was written all over her face.
"Mom, I don't know! She's sweating and throwing up! Where's Carlisle" I was so frantic I could barely get my words out.
"Sweetheart relax, he's upstairs getting ready to check on her. Bella called while you were on your way here."
I nodded and ran upstairs to Carlisle's office.
Come in Edward. I need to check her. Carlisle's thoughts were worried.
I opened the door and set my angel down on the examination table. I gently nudged her awake so Carlisle could talk to her.
"Grandpa, I don't feel so good." I could see the tears forming in her eyes.
"Well, honey, first tell me what is bothering you?"
"Well… my tummy hurts, my head feels funny and… and my nose is stuffy."
Edward, it sounds like a cold or the flu, but I'll check her blood just to be safe. I nodded in response
"Nessie, I'm going to take some blood, is that okay?" Renesmee nodded in response, too tired to talk. Carlisle took some blood with no reaction from Renesmee and she quickly fell asleep.
Edward, I'm going to check this and I'll be back in a few minutes. And then he left.
I sat there staring at my daughter. I never thought I would have to deal with this with her being half vampire. Yet here I am, sitting with my sick child. I remember how I felt whenever Bella had the slightest hint of being ill. It was torture. At least, Bella would never be sick again. Dealing with my own child was enough to kill me. How did parents deal with this worry? Any sickness could kill them! What if the sickness isn't just a cold or the flu? What if it is something more serious? I can't handle this worry!
"Edward? Edward?" I looked over to see my father staring at me. Now that I finally have your attention. "It is just the flu. There is not much to worry about. She just needs rest and attention and this she go away in a week or two. Hopefully the vampire in her will cause it to go away sooner. Here is some medicine to give once in the morning and once at night."
I thanked him and took the medicine. I scooped up my sleeping angel and brought her home so she could sleep of this flu. I hope she never gets sick again. It just hurts too much.
AN: Sorry if you got this twice, but I checked it again and noticed some major typos.
