I groaned and rolled over in bed, hugging the first thing I came into contact with to me tight. Edward laughed and his lips touched my hair. I squirmed under his touch and hugged what I discovered to be his arm tighter.
"Love we need to go." He whispered.
I shook my head and buried my face in the ice cold skin of his bicep.
"Yes we do... your mothers landing in just over an hour and we need to be there to pick her up." He reasoned.
I sighed and my eyes fluttered open, squinting slightly into the light from the window. I groaned again and buried my face back into his arm. He sighed in frustration.
"Can't you just go and pick her up." I complained. I was in a really foul mood this morning. It was the first day of the holidays and I had to get up at the early time I normally went to school so I could go pick up my mother.
"You're her daughter; it will hurt her feelings if you don't go." He started but I cut him off.
"You're going to be her son in two weeks why can't you go." I muttered. Playing the marriage card made me feel slightly bad, but I knew this was important to him, so I was going to grit my teeth and bear it. Secretly I was really excited about martyring Edward, but I wasn't going to let that on to him. I didn't need him having any more points scored against me than he already did; god knew he could be so persuasive.
I had almost made that sound dirty, which was kind of ironic. There was nothing about being with Edward that was remotely dirty. After all, he was so intent on having me as a virgin bride, I was thinking of having the letter V tattooed on my forehead. I had been kind enough to share it with Edward, but he hadn't found it nearly as funny as I had.
Jacob hadn't spoken to me since he forced me to kiss him before the newborn fight. I didn't mind really, although I could tell Edward was concerned that I would regret not being bothered by it later. I had assured him I wasn't going to, but as with all things that were linked to my happiness, he had ignored my view entirely.
"Bella we are both going now get up before I walk downstairs and let Charlie know I am here almost every night." He warned, leaning down to touch his forehead to mine. I frowned and rolled away from him, burying my face in the pillow. His arm caught my waist and held me tight to his side where he was sat up in bed.
I sighed and sat up, crawling out of bed and methodically grabbing my wash bag.
"Better?" I grumbled, shoving a brush through my hair and turning to glare at him. Before I could blink he was stood in front of me, moving his hands down my arms to hold mine.
"Much." He whispered and kissed me gently.
My hart thumped in my chest loudly and he smiled pulling back to run his fingers down my jaw.
"I'll be back in half an hour." He whispered.
I raised an eyebrow in a challenging way, "I'm counting the minutes."
He laughed and rolled his eyes, "You and me to love."
I watched as he disappeared out of my window before all but falling into the shower with tiredness, which was odd because I had slept really well the night before and now I thought about it, all of my joints ached and clicked when I moved.
I all but moaned in pleasure when the hot water un-did all of the knots in my spine, rinsing my hair I climbed out and dressed, shoving my hair into a pony tail and looking myself over in the mirror. I winced when I caught sight of my eyes; they were raw and red, with dark baggy rings underneath. I looked a mess.
I bent forwards to examine my complexion when my stomach heaved and I lurched to spray the contents of my stomach in the toilet.
"Awesome." I muttered dryly and flushed, rinsing my mouth out and brushing my teeth. I moaned as it continued to churn, but I knew I hadn't actually eaten anything that could make some kind of reappearance. But just to be sure, I waited by the toilet for a couple more minutes before I ventured downstairs to see Charlie. I glanced at the clock as he chatted about seeing Renee again. I only had five minutes before Edward arrived and I knew I had to do something about my sickly appearance before he did. Charlie however didn't notice.
'Oh well', I thought to myself, 'perhaps he wouldn't notice.'
Yeh right I believed that. It was a miracle he hadn't spotted it before he left. The doorbell rang just as I groaned, throwing myself towards the bin and throwing up some un-recognisable material into the bottom of it.
Charlie winced and patted my shoulder.
"Go for it kiddo." He muttered and went to answer it for Edward, who I knew could probably hear me, that's why he knocked twice.
"Hello chief Swan." Edward said smoothly, with no undercurrent to his voice at all. I couldn't help but cross my fingers hopefully when I emptied the trash and threw a mint in my mouth. Perhaps he hadn't heard.
But then I knew how good at lying he was.
He walked in followed by my father, Charlie glaring at Edward like he was some annoying thing in his vision, also like he was ready to shoot him if he put a foot wrong. The scary part was none of it was hypothetical.
Edward came and felt my forehead, looking me over anxiously.
"I got your text." He lied smoothly. I nodded, knowing not to risk it, I was terrible at lying, and the less Charlie knew about Edward's ability to cover things up and why he did it the better.
"Have you taken anything yet?" my fiancée continued to ask.
I shook my head and continued to gesture to the mint in my moth before swallowing it.
"I'm fine now." I mumbled looking down.
Edward caught my chin and lifted it so I was looking into his eyes.
"I can pick Renée up on my won you know." He whispered.
I sighed and shook my head, wrapping my arms around his neck and burying my face in his chest. He sighed and his rested on my spine, rubbing it gently. I heard Charlie cough once and Edward tried to pull back but I muttered something incoherent and replaced my head against his chest
He kissed my hair and stroked my cheek, "Let's go then."
We said a goodbye to Charlie who grumbled something gruffly at Edward, who nodded and told him he would before He lead me out to the car and shut ym door after me.
"What did Charlie ask you?" I asked with my eyes shut. I reached blindly of his hand and took it gently.
"He told me to look after you, well more warned me really." Edward laughed.
I laughed and leant my head on his shoulder.
"You okay my love?" He whispered trying do hard to not to sound overly anxious, and failing miserably.
"I'm always okay." I whispered and felt myself fall asleep. I squinted threw the crowd t try and see my mother. Why oh why did Seattle airport have to be so busy?
"I can hear her thoughts." Edward said helpfully.
"Yes well not all of us are that special and six foot two." I hissed.
Before I could say anything he hands grabbed my hips and lifted me onto his shoulder, his arm held my waist to stop me from falling.
"Edward." I hiss and blushed, feeling more than one pair of eyes on me and my fiancée.
"Keep looking." He pretended to grunt under my weight and I kicked his chest as hard as I could, knowing it wouldn't do any good.
"Ouch love." He muttered in mock hurt, and I couldn't help the smirk that spread across my lips.
"Bella!" I heard my mum squealed and I smiled, Edward sat me down and I ran to hug her.
"Oh we're going to have so much fun." She laughed and I glanced at Edward, to see him shift uncomfortably.
I smiled at him in confusion and he grinned.
He winked and I blushed turning by attention back to my bubbling mother.
It was going to be a long few weeks.
