"Where did you run off to earlier?" asked Edward as he and Jasper pulled me and Bella into a corner at Mike and Tyler's.
"We needed to get something," I whispered. Bella reached over and grabbed my hand.
"What?" asked Jasper. I took a deep breathe and smiled.
"A pregnancy test," I whispered. Edward and Jasper's mouths fell open.
"Are you…..Did you….Pregnant?" asked Jasper. I bit my lip and looked over at Bella. She nodded her head softly.
"Yes," I whispered. "I'm pregnant."
Jasper and Edward smiled and pulled us into their arms and kissed us. They were so exited for us. All of us. We managed to break away from each other long enough to tell Tyler and Mike goodnight. Bella and I climbed into her car while Edward and Jasper climbed into Edward's Volvo. We pulled out behind them and followed them to the house. We got stuck at a red light while Edward and Jasper kept going. The light turned green and Bella pressed onto the gas pedal.
That's when I saw the lights. The truck was going way too fast. I knew it was going to hit us.
"BELLA" I screamed.
The truck slammed into us and I felt my seat belt dig into my shoulder and hip as the car was thrown around. We rolled once before settling back on it's wheels. I looked over and saw the blood pouring from Bella's head.
"BELLA," I screamed as I tried to get my seat belt off. I saw her eye's close. "Bella, stay with me, Baby. Please."
I heard the sirens coming but I couldn't focus on them. All I could see was Bella laying in her seat. My Bella, my love, my wife, was laying there and I was trapped.
"Miss, are you ok?" asked the paramedic as he came over to my window.
"I'm stuck. Please help her," I cried as I pointed Bella. The other paramedic was over on her side assessing her condition.
"We will take care of her," said the paramedic on my side. "I need you to tell me what you are feeling."
"My leg hurts," I cried. "But I'm fine, otherwise."
"Ok, I'm going to cut your seat belt off," he said. He reached over and cut my seat belt off.
"SHE'S CODING," yelled the paramedic, working on Bella.
The guy on my side ran over to the other side and helped his partner as they shocked her. Her body flinched every time they shocked her heart. They finally got a rhythm. They used the jaws of life to peel back the top of the car. They put a neck brace on Bella and slid her out onto a backboard. They put an oxygen mask over her mouth and nose and loaded her into the ambulance.
Another paramedic team came over and pulled me out of the car. They strapped me down to the back board. I could hear Edward and Jasper yelling for us but I couldn't yell back. They loaded me into the ambulance and took off. All I could think about on the way to the hospital was my Bella. I couldn't get her face out of my head. I had only seen her like this once before. When Jacob attacked her.
The ambulance stopped and they carried me into the ER.
"What have you got?" asked the doctor as he followed us into a trauma room.
"Blood pressure is 140/90. Airway is clear. Complains of pain in her right leg. Lustration on her right shoulder from the seat belt." said the paramedic.
"Let's move her on the my mark," said the doctor. "3, 2, 1."
They lifted me off the stretcher and laid me in the bed. The doctor start cutting through my clothes and peeling them back as the paramedics pulled their stretcher out and left.
"Can you tell me your name?" asked the doctor as he shined his light into my eyes.
"Alice Cullen," I whispered.
"Ok, Alice, I'm Dr. Gerandy," he said. "Does your head hurt? Neck? Back?"
"No, just my leg," I whispered. "I'm pregnant."
"Ok," he said. He turned to the nurse. "Let's get her into x-ray and get her leg checked out."
"Is Bella ok?" I asked. He looked back down at me.
"Is Bella the woman who was driving?" he asked.
"They are still working on her," he said softly.
"Please don't let her die," I cried. "Please."
"We'll do everything we can," he said softly. He looked back at the nurse. "Get a line started and get a full work up on her blood."
"Yes, sir," she said.
She took me down to get my leg x-rayed before she brought me back to my room and got an IV put in. She took two vials of my blood. It felt like forever before the doctor came back in with Edward and Jasper. They both looked like they had been crying.
"These two belong to you?" asked Dr. Gerandy.
"Yes," I cried. They came over and grabbed my hands. "Is she ok?"
"They have her in surgery. One of her ribs punctured her lung. Her hip was crushed. Her left leg was broken in three places. Then there's the head injury….." trailed off Edward. "We just don't know yet."
"She has to be ok," I cried. "I can't…."
"We know," whispered Jasper.
"Well, your leg is broke but it was a clean break. So I am going to put a cast on it. I would like to keep you over night for observation, just to be careful," said Dr. Gerandy.
"What about the baby?" I asked.
"So far the baby seems fine," he said. "It's too early to do an sonogram but your blood work shows an increase in HGC, which is good. We'll just have to watch."
I shook my head softly as I sat behind my desk. I tried not to dwell on that day. The day my world came shattering down around me. It's been six months since the accident that nearly claimed Bella's life. Six months since I looked into her eyes or saw her gorgeous smile. Edward, Jasper, and I have been trying to stay positive that she would wake up soon but it was hard.
My leg healed and I managed to not lose our baby but my wife, my Bella, was still gone. She survived the surgery to fix her lung and repair her hip. They ended up putting pins in her leg to help it heal. The head injury was the problem. She hit her head on the windshield of the car. Her brain swelled so they had to keep her sedated to reduce the swelling. They finally started weaning her off the medication about a week later but she still hasn't woken up. They have no clue why or when she will. Edward, Jasper, and I have faith that our Bella will come back to us.
"Alice, honey, go home," said Carlisle. I looked up and saw him standing in the doorway to my office. "You look exhausted."
"I am exhausted," I said as I stood up and placed a hand on my slight baby bump. I had just started to show. "But I have work to do."
"You need to take care of yourself," he said. "And the baby."
"I am taking care of myself and our baby," I snapped. "But I have to get the designs ready for the Franklin house. I have the Davis house. Not to mention all the projects Seth is handling."
"Alice, honey, it's ok," whispered Carlisle as he pulled me into his arms. "I'm sorry. I just worry about you. Bella would want you to take care of yourself. You know that."
"I know. I just miss her so much, Carlisle," I whispered through my tears.
"I know you do, Honey," he whispered. "We do too but we have to stay strong."
"I know," I whispered. "I'm sorry. I just have a little bit more work to do before I head over to the hospital."
"Ok, honey," sighed Carlisle. "If you need anything, you know where I am."
"I know," I whispered. "Thanks. Tell everyone I love them."
"I will. We love you too," said Carlisle.
He walked out of my office and I went back to work. After the accident Carlisle and Esme came back to LA. Carlisle insisted that he needed to take over Bella's position until she woke up. Esme was able to get her job back and has been in charge of Bella's care ever since. William and Catherine moved their law practice to LA to be with them. It was nice to see their love stronger than it ever was.
Charlie, Renee, Peter, and Charlotte also moved to LA. Renee decided not to find a job so she could be here to help with Bella. They found a house a few miles from ours. Their house in Forks, as well as my parent's house, were completed two months ago but they can't handle living in them right now. They remind them all of Bella. Everything reminds us of Bella.
Garrett, Kate, Rose, and Emmett moved into a house last month. Rose and Emmett were having just as hard of a time with Bella's condition that Edward, Jasper, and I were. But Garrett and Kate were there for them. I was grateful for that. The last thing I needed was to worry about my brother and Rose.
I was shaken out of my thoughts when my cell phone rang. I pulled it out of my purse and looked down at the caller ID and saw that it was Edward.
"Hello, Baby," I said.
"Alice, baby, you need to get to the hospital now," ordered Edward.
"Why?" I panicked as I stood up and grabbed my purse. "Is something wrong with Bella?"
"Alice, she's awake."
