The last installment of this one-shot that turned out to be a three part story! :D
Hope you guys enjoy!
"Bella..." Someone was calling me quietly, but I refused to move. I knew I'd slept longer than usual, but the bed was too comfortable this morning.
"Bella..." Edward called again and I moved slightly, letting out a tired moan.
"Mommy!" A little voice was coming from beside me and I reached to rub my eyes.
"Wait for a minute son..." Edward's voice was just as low, and I knew without needing to open my eyes that they were standing by the bed waiting for me to wake up.
"Oday Daddy..." Timmy whispered loudly, trying to match Edward's noise level.
Timmy's cute little voice made me smile and I opened my eyes slowly, looking first at Timmy before gazing up at Edward. He was smiling down at me radiantly before he shouted loudly, "Now Timmy!"
Timmy flung his arms around me quickly and gave my cheek a big slobbery kiss, "Happy Birday Mommy!"
I laughed, wrapping my arms around his little body gently and squeezing him, "Thank you Monster!"
He pulled back and grinned, "I made you a car!"
He placed a piece of cardboard in my hand and I smiled down at it, "You mean a card?"
"Yeah!" He nodded lots and laughed, "A car!"
I grinned and shook my head a little before I heard a horn sound from outside. I looked up at Edward, "You let me sleep this late?"
He smiled and shrugged, "The birthday girl deserved a treat."
I smiled before looking back at Timmy as he patted my hand impatiently, "Mommy... Mommy... Mommy!"
"Yes?" I laughed, trying to calm him down and make him see I was listening to him.
"Me gots to go to school now! And tonight I'm going to Auntie Alice's. You know why?" He smiled widely, showing a few bright white teeth.
I shook my head, frowning a little in confusion, "No... Why?"
Edward opened his mouth quickly, "No Timmy... Don't."
But it was too late, our son opened his mouth and rushed to get it all out before his father could stop him, "Daddy is making you a spedal, romantic meal fou your birday! But..." He leaned in close to my ear and spoke loudly into it, "Don't tell annnyone, kay? It's a sedret."
I closed my eyes as I laughed, and then I looked at Edward. He was shaking his head at Timmy's revelation, but shaking with laughter too.
I giggled, "I won't tell anyone. I promise."
"Oday good!" He kissed my lips quickly before he bounded out of the room, his backpack already attached onto him.
Edward spoke gently, still laughing, "I'll see him out to the bus."
I nodded and smiled, watching him leave before I opened my card, reading it carefully.
It had been written in Edward's elegant script,
You are the most beautiful woman in the world and I love you loads. Happy Birthday!
Lots of love,
And then in Timmy's attempt to write his name were massive wiggles in the shape of letters, spelling his name across the card.
I smiled wide before I placed it on the bedside table, moving to lie back in bed as Edward re-entered the room.
"You know, you really shouldn't have told him your plan for tonight." I noted, laughing as he slipped off his shoes and got into the bed beside me, wrapping his arms tight around my waist.
"Yeah I know. But I wanted someone to tell me how much of a good idea it was."
I reached up to kiss him gently, running my fingers down his cheek, "Well I could've done that..."
He smiled on my lips, "I know... Happy Birthday by the way."
I smiled, moving to lay my head in the crook of his neck, "Thank you... Birthday's are fine to mention just not the age."
He laughed, running his hands up and down my back slowly, "Bella, thirty is hardly old."
I groaned, "Don't mention that number!"
He grinned, "Oh you were very enthusiastic about mentioning it two months ago when I hit that threshold."
"But that's different." I said confidently, "It's different for a man to turn thirty than it is for a woman."
"That's sexist Mrs Cullen." He noted with a smirk.
"That's the truth." I said, smiling again as I sat up, "So where's my present?"
He laughed before letting go of me and reaching to the drawer in the bedside table, "Here we go..."
We moved so we could get comfortable and I laid back against his warm chest as he set the book into my hands. I looked at it for a long moment before opening the cover.
I wasn't a book after all. It was a photo album.
I ran my fingers over the first picture, two babies, one in a blue pram, one in a pink pram, both with red faces as they cried.
I smiled, shutting my eyes for a moment before I spoke, "Is this was I think it is?"
I could hear his smile as he brushed my hair back, kissing my forehead gently, "It took me forever to get all the photos. Mother's are very protective of family pictures you know."
I laughed, "Oh I know, don't worry."
I turned the page, smiling at the two toddlers who stared back at me, holding hands as they grinned for the camera.
The album was full of photos of Edward and I as we grew up. There were the cute photos, like the one of Edward stealing a kiss from me when we were seven years old. And then there were the funny photos, like the one of Edward and I trying to light a fire in my back garden to destroy the evidence of an ornament we'd smashed.
I flicked through them slowly, smiling with Edward as we watched our growing figures play back to us through the photos.
I stopped at our Graduation photo and smiled, "I never realised this photo had been taken..." I said quietly.
"Me neither..." He responded in a low voice, "I found it in the pile your mother let me have."
Edward and I were standing with our family for a photo, and his father and mother were on his two sides but still he stared over their heads at me as I smiled with my parents.
"I bet if you had of seen this photo you would've known I loved you all that time." He said as I gazed at him. He was just as handsome as he was now... Absolutely gorgeous.
And all mine.
Even there in the photo, I could tell by his expression that he loved me, that I was all he wanted to look at.
I laid my head back and smiled up at him, "I love you."
"And I love you." He kissed me gently before we turned our attention back to the photos.
I smiled as we reached the pictures of our wedding day, running my fingers over Edward in his tux, one arm wrapped around my waist in a tight hold of love and possession.
We didn't get married on our month away like we'd said we would. We decided that our family and friends shouldn't miss what they'd waited our whole lives for. So instead we spent the month together, falling even deeper in love before we went back home again.
We arranged the wedding within a few weeks and got married exactly one month later. Then within the next year I fell pregnant with our first child, Timmy. He was four now, and the biggest Monster out there. But he was ours and we wouldn't change him for the world.
Mike Newton had attended our wedding. Thankfully everything blew over and there weren't many repercussions after I literally ran off with someone else. After Edward and I explained everything he accepted it and started to move on.
Now he was married to Susan, the same nurse who had attended the engagement party on the same night Edward and I confessed our love for each other.
"You okay?" Edward's voice was quiet as he kissed the skin under my ear.
I smiled, "Perfect... Just thinking."
"About what?" He inquired curiously.
I closed the photo album gently and set it down beside us on the bed. I turned then to face him and took his face in my hands, "Thinking that I have the most amazing husband in the world. I'm a very lucky woman and I love you."
He grinned, "Well that's good, because I love you too Mrs Cullen."
I smiled brightly before I bit my lip, "Umm... I also have a present for you..."
He frowned a little, "Me? But it's your birthday baby."
"I know. But it's a present for me too." I nodded.
"Alright then... What is it?" He smiled.
I reached for his hand gently, lifting it and entwining our fingers for a moment before I placed his hand over my stomach, looking down at it before glancing up to meet his gaze.
He looked back at me for a moment before looking down at my stomach. I watched as the realisation flickered in his face and he quickly looked back up at me again, "No way..."
"Yes way..." I smiled, speaking in a whisper.
"You're pregnant?" He almost shouted, his grin forming across his face so wide I could nearly see all of his teeth.
I nodded, "I'm pregnant!"
"When did you find out?" He asked eagerly.
"Last night. I thought it would make better sense to tell you today..."
He gazed down at my stomach for another long moment before shaking his head slowly, "I'm going to be a dad again..."
I moved to position myself in his lap, wrapping my arms around his neck, "And I'll be a mother."
He put his forehead to mine, "Thank you."
"No..." I shook my head, smiling, "Thank you. You made all my dreams come true. I love you."
He reached to kiss me gently, "I love you too. Forever."
