Sorry I haven't updated in a long while. This story is almost over though! Only two chapters, including this one, left.
The next chapter, the last one, won't be out for a while, but it will be a lot longer. This chapter is very short, but I am leaving in less than an hour to go to the midnight showing of New Moon. Well, I'm going out to a late dinner first, but I'm leaving nonetheless.
Edward and Tanya continued to talk for a few minutes, going on and on about Medical School and work and a bunch of things I couldn't even start to understand. Then, Tanya said something that managed to catch my attention. "I'm sorry…but I thought the two of you got, um, divorced a couple of years ago. When I was in Seattle your sister Alice said something about it…" Tanya said, looking from Edward to I.
"We're back together now." Edward said firmly, rubbing the small of my back gently with his hand. "I just moved back to the city, and we got back together then."
"Oh, well that's fantastic! You two had such a great relationship, and I hope the two of you are very happy together from now on." Tanya said, glancing at her watch. "I have to get going and meet my husband, but it was so nice to see the two of you again." She said, giving Edward a quick hug and then shaking my hand.
I watched as she walked away, and Edward glanced down at me with a concerned look on his face. "Is something wrong, love?" He asked, his eyebrows bunching together.
"She can give you everything that I can't." I said softly, and Edward came to halt, stopping right in the middle of the sidewalk. "I can't give you a child, Edward. My doctor says it's impossible for me to have children, and I know that you want. Hell, I want them. But I can't give you that, and I don't want you to be in this relationship with me if I cannot give you the one thing you want most."
"Whoa, calm down." Edward said urgently, pulling me to the side of the sidewalk so that we were out of the way. "I just want you, Bella. I don't care if we can't have children together. You're my everything, my love. And you will always be my everything." He whispered, brushing his lips against mine gently and letting his thumb skin against my cheek.
"Really?" I asked, sniffling and wiping away the tears that had formed in my eyes.
"Of course." Edward murmured soothingly. "Baby, I thought we agreed that we were going to let go of all our insecurities! I don't want you to doubt, for one second, that I want to be with you forever."
I bit my lip and leaned my head against his shoulder, breathing deeply. "I'm sorry." I said, smiling weakly. "I just don't want to have to lose you again."
"Ditto." Edward said in a soft voice, pressing a tender kiss to the top of my head.
Ugh I'm so sorry It's so short…I hate this. But I have to get going.
