Note: Set after The Weekend. Not too long after, just a few weeks! Hope you like it :)
It was Friday night and we had just finished school for a whole 2 weeks. I was sat with Edward in his room listening to music. I had put on the CD he had made me for my 18th birthday. I loved listening to it. So we were sat on the bed, totally minding our own business when Alice burst through the door. "Alice? Have you ever heard of knocking?" Edward sounded pretty peeved. But it was soon forgotten because Alice seemed visibly excited.
"Bella. Edward. Come to the lounge now." She managed to say whilst jumping up and down. I looked at her confused. She motioned for us to come. Edward pulled me off the bed and walked me downstairs. I saw Rosalie walking in from the front door with Emmett at her heels and Jasper was trying to calm Alice down but was failing miserably. Seconds later we heard Carlisle car coming back from the hospital. Alice got even more excited then. She ran to the door and flung it open.
"Carlisle! Your home! I've seen what you want us to do. So exiting!" She ran up to him and hugged him tightly. Carlisle, who had only just stepped out of his Mercedes, seemed a little taken aback by all of this. He unattached Alice from his chest then reached back into his car and retrieved a cardboard box. Alice started clapping her hands.
Once inside Carlisle put the box down on one of the cream colored sofas and sat down next to it. He smiled warmly to everyone who had taken various seats around the room.
"Hello everyone. You might have already guessed that I have a little assignment for you all." I looked warily at Edward. Assignments usually meant writing and a lot of hard work. He smiled at me and looked back to Carlisle. "Don't worry. No writing is involved." Was added because of the scared look on my face. Phew! "It will however be hard work but I'm sure that you will be able to manage. Basically, the hospital has got some new resources in to teach school children around your age about being teenage parents. We have bought empathy bellies that make you look and feel heavily pregnant. We also have some 'babies' as well which act just like a real baby would. They cry, sleep, eat, puke and fill nappies. Yes, I know, disgusting right." He joked looking at Rosalie's face. She looked as if she had been asked to go and jump it a pit full of maggots. "Anyway, your mission, should you choose to accept it is to test out this new equipment. The experiment will last 2 weeks. A week with the empathy bellies and a week with your little bundles of joy. Any objections? No? Good." He spoke fast before Rosalie had a chance to talk. "These here are the bellies you will have to wear for a week. You can't take them off except when you take a shower or change your clothes. You may have to get some help to do so but you must put them back on. It may make some activities more difficult to do than before. So as you might have guessed Emmett that means no sex for a week." Emmett folded arms and huffed like a toddler.
"We can always try." Emmett mumbled under his breath.
I stifled a giggle. "Okay kids. Come and get them!" Carlisle reached into the box and pulled out three 'pregnant bellies'. Alice was at the front of the queue of course. I was next in line then Rose came trailing in behind after trying to escape.
Edward got our 'belly' and undid all the straps at the back. As I started to unbutton my shirt Edward looked horrified. "Don't worry. I've got a t-shirt underneath. No nakedness today!" I thought I saw him sigh in relief. Edward worked quickly and efficiently to strap the extra weight to my body. When he was finished I tried to put my shirt back on but it wouldn't fit over my new bulge. I struggled with the material determined to make it fit. Edward just stood there trying not to smile. "Help please." I know I sounded pathetic but I was frustrated. Already and I had only been wearing it about thirty seconds.
"I'll go and get you one of my shirts from upstairs. It will make do until Alice whisks you off shopping." Oh no. Not today.
"Do we have to go shopping?" I asked pouting at Alice who had now got her pregnancy bump. She gave me a look as if to say, "Are you stupid? Of course we have to go shopping. And pregnant or not you aren't getting out of this one." I sighed and sat down on the couch behind me. Nothing was going to slow Alice down. Not even pregnancy. But then again she's a vampire, what does she know about being human. Rosalie looked extremely annoyed with her bump. She was hitting it, trying to get it into place.
"For God's sake! Just stay there!" Rose shouted at it. I couldn't help but laugh at that. Looks like it wasn't just me who would struggle with this. Edward came downstairs with a second shirt in his hands. I gratefully accepted it and slid it over my shoulders. It smelled of him. I inhaled the impossibly sweet smell. I could get used to living in Edwards clothes. So we didn't have to go shopping after all! Oh who am I kidding? Shopping is like maths, dreaded by everyone and totally unavoidable.
"I'll go get the car then shall I?" Alice grinned and danced out of the room. She looked a little less dainty but still managed to look graceful. I grudgingly followed her with Edward's hand firmly in mine. If I had to go then so did he!
I had to admit, what happened next was funny. Alice tried to climb behind the wheel of her porche but couldn't fit because of her stomach! No matter how hard she tried she couldn't fit. She wouldn't give up for a whole five minutes. Eventually she climbed out and let Jasper take the wheel. Emmett and Rosalie said they would follow in the BMW.
"Everyone ready for off?" Jasper turned to Edward and me in the backseat. I wasn't ready for this. I don't think I would ever be! But despite the feeling of dread growing inside me I smiled and said,
"Sure. Let's go!" As the car pulled out of the drive Edward squeezed my hand reasuringly. I squeezed back, flashing a smile in his direction. This trip wouldn't be as long as usual because the boys were going as well. They will just want to get in there, buy some clothes that fit and get out as fast as they could. Surely I could manage a measly hour shopping. After all, it was nothing compared to the whole day we usually spent.
Wow! Didn't expect to be writing again so soon but I couldn't help myself ;) I feel that this is going to be quite a long story as well, so plenty more to come. Please tell me what you think aout the start to the first chapter and any ideas for the next chapters are more than welcome :D :D Thanks XX
