P.S. I Still Love You

A/N: This story is probably going to be very short depending on the reviews I get, but it's mostly based off the songs "She Wouldn't Be Gone" and "Austin" both by Blake Shelton. So here you have it, the first chapter of P.S. I Still Love You
Chapter 1: Gone
I had just gotten off work and I couldn't wait to get home to my Rosalie. We weren't married or engaged, but I was looking for the perfect ring to ask her to be mine. I stopped to pick up some red roses for her because I could. I wanted to spoil her tonight to show her how I truly felt. I hadn't been doing that lately because I was stressed about a big corporate meeting that went great today!
As I pulled into the apartment complex, I looked for her car but didn't see it anywhere. Maybe she parked somewhere different today. I grabbed the roses and got out of my jeep, locking it. I went inside to the elevator and waited till it reached our floor. I was so excited to see her that I almost started running down the hallway to the biggest apartment on this floor that we called ours. I opened the door slowly though, only to find it pitch black in the room.
I quickly turned on the light and looked for the phone. Once found, I called her office to see if she was still there, even if she never stayed there too late. "Hello, Hummingbird Models, how can I help you?" The lady who answered the phone asked.
"Yes, this is Emmett McCarthy and I was wondering if Rosalie Hale was still there?" I asked calmly.
"I'm sorry sir, but she left over two hours ago." The phone almost slipped from my hands but I caught it and quickly pressed end not caring how rude I was. I was worried about my Rose and I needed to know where she was. I dialed another number and listened to it ring until they picked up.
"Jasper! Is Rose over there with you and Alice?" I asked quickly not caring how I sounded.
"Nope, haven't seen her since last night at dinner. Are you okay Emmett?" He asked but I didn't answer as I quickly hung up and dialed a new number.
"Los Angeles hospital, how can I help you?" The receptionist asked.
"Yes I need to speak with Doctor Edward Cullen. It's Emmett McCarthy." I said as calmly as I could so I didn't blow up at her. I did that before and she then wouldn't let me talk to Edward.
"Alright, please hold." She said before there was a click. Ten seconds later and there was another click.
"Doctor Edward Cullen speaking." He said professionally.
"Edward is Rose with Bella?" I asked knowing he would know who Bella was hanging out with.
"No Emmett, Bella is at the office working on editing an article. Are you-" I didn't let him finish as I hung up the phone. I dialed her cell number only to find it on the table in our living room. I ran toward the stairs not having the patience to take the elevator and jumped in my jeep starting to drive around town looking for her. I knew I was crying but I didn't care. My Rose was missing and I needed her back, I needed to find her.
I didn't realize how low on gas I was until I noticed my jeep slowing down and I pulled off to the side as it finally stopped. I banged my head on the steering wheel. Why am I so stupid? How could I have let her go?
My phone started ringing and I answered it without looking at the caller id.
"Hello?" My voice sounded so weak.
"Emmett?" Bella, my best friend from diapers asked. She was like a sister to me now though. In fact, I called her my little sister from time to time. "Emmett, where are you and why do you sound like you've been crying? You've never cried before." She sounded really worried.
"I-I don't know where I am, but she's gone." I said feeling the new tears roll down my cheeks.
"Rose." I whispered so softly I wasn't sure if she heard me.
"Emmett which way were you headed, we'll come find you." She said in a caring voice.
I thought back to which way my direction thing said when I still had my battery but of course, it died a little after I ran out of gas. "North." I finally said remembering the little N that had showed on my direction thing.
"I'll be there before you know it." She said before hanging up. I just put the phone in the seat and then put my head back on the steering wheel. I shouldn't have let that meeting bother me so much. I should've told her how much I love her every day. I should have held her that night when she looked so sad before covering it up. I could still feel the tears rolling down my cheeks.
There was a knock on my window and I looked up to see Bella. She looked down at the lock then back at me. I unlocked the door and stepped out of the jeep. She hugged me tightly at the first chance she got. I hugged her just a tightly back and cried on her shoulder. It was like she was repaying me after all those years of letting her cry on my shoulder. Of course she had Edward for that now, but every now and then she would come to me just to talk about anything that was bothering her and maybe to cry on my shoulder.
"Let's go brother bear." She said using her nickname for me that she had used when she turned 3 and didn't drop it till the age of 10. She led me over to her car and I got in the passenger seat as she drove back towards town. "Do you want to stay over?" She asked glancing at me and I nodded my head staring at my hands.
An hour later we arrived at her house where Edward, Jasper and a very pregnant Alice sat in the living room. I sat in one of the chairs as they all took me in. We sat in silence for what seemed like forever.
"Is she really gone?" Alice finally asked sounding like she was going to cry. I could only nod my head, not trusting my voice. Alice broke out into sobs and Jasper rubbed her back as she buried her head in his chest. Hearing Alice cry, I started to feel the tears again. I had hurt her. Rose was her best friend and now Rose left because of something I did.
"I'm sorry." I whispered as the sobs over took me. Bella jumped up from her spot by Edward to pull me into a hug. I flinched away from her.
"Oh, brother bear, we don't blame you. I'm sure she will come back, hell I'm positive she'll come back. She loves you and every one of us, even Alice's baby. I'm sure she won't just abandon us." She said rubbing my back. I felt so weak and vulnerable. I knew how Bella felt now when she cried along with every other person who has cried this hard.
I hugged Bella back before telling everyone good night and heading to Edward and Bella's guest bedroom to sleep. Of course my dreams were filled with a beautiful woman named Rose. I found myself waking up constantly, sobbing. Only to fall asleep again.
