A/N: HEY GUYS! I'm back again. So... I know it's been a while. Really sorry about that. There's the exams, boy problems (and I don't even have a boyfriend! Can you believe that?), best friend problems, house problems... and so on. Oh! I was our year's (3rd year) representative for a stupid popularity contest in our school... and I'm not even popular!

Enough of my rants. This is beta'd by faith2904able . Actually, she writes a chapter, then I edit it or add something. In this case, I changed 3/4. Hope you guys like it! I seriously don't know why those things happened here. hehe.

DISCLAIMED.


CHAPTER 17

EPOV:

I was devastated and totally ashamed of myself. Bella had forgiven me for causing her so much pain (A/N: I'm such a self-righteous **-ok stop it! Sorry couldn't help itfaith2905able. Me: LOL. It's ok. Look, I added this. XD)but I didn't think about anyone's opinion or feelings but my own. On top of that, I had two beautiful daughters that I had hurt as well.

Nessie looking at me with a little smirk, Left eyebrow lifted and arms folded- "Well, we're waiting for an answer 'DAD'!" Carlie was standing next to her with the same pose. Boy, they really remind me of Alice right now.

I stood up and looked at Bella. She has a smirk on her face as well; she was probably thinking, Try to get out of this one Edward,or something like that.

I took a deep breath "I didn't leave you on purpose. I didn't know that you're mother was pregnant. I thought I was protecting your mother from more danger because I was a vampire and she was human. I made a big mistake that I will regret for the rest of my existence. I love her and both of you with all my heart. Can you ever forgive me?" I looked at my princesses, held my arms open and hoped for the best.

My girls ran into my arms and I hugged them more tightly than before. I looked at Bella and she had tears that could never fall, in her eyes .

"Okay, we'll stay but you have to earn mine and the girls' trust and meet the following conditions."

"Anything love." Edward said with questions in his eyes. His wonderful golden eyes…

I shook my head. I'm getting dazzled – again. "You have to spend time with our girls and get to know them. Answer any questions they are going to ask you honestly. We need to spend time together as a family." I looked at the two miracles and smiled at them adoringly. They smiled back at me.

Just then, the others came back.

"Oh, Bella. The family is whole again!" Alice exclaimed (is there anything else to describe how Alice says things? I think I always use exclaim..help me out? :), bouncing right to us with her hands clasped. I looked at the others who were beaming. I can't help but grin back.

Esme came up to me. "Thank you, Bella. Thank you so much." She said then hugged me. I hugged her back.

"It's nothing, Esme."

"It's anything but nothing, Bella. We owe you so much. Especially me." Rosalie told me with a hug.

"Oh, Rosalie. I told you, I already forgive you. All of you. I'm just glad to have everyone back."

"We're glad to have you, too, baby sister." Emmett came up to me and gave me one of his bone-crushing hugs. Good thing I'm a vampire. Then he turned to Edward and patted his back. "Good for you, bro. Didn't mess up this time. Keep it up." Edward rolled his eyes at that.

"Okay, everything is great. Everyone's fine and it's midnight. We don't want to keep you… up…" I bit my lip. If I was a human, my cheeks would've been red. "So… yeah… and the kids need to sleep."

"I agree with that. Well, see you guys tomorrow. Have a good night everyone! Sleep well, Carlie and Nessie." Alice said, kissing the twins then she and Jasper went upstairs to their room.

"Yeah, we'll be gone now, too. Night you guys! Edward and Bella, don't have too much fun, alright? There are kids present." Rosalie smacked Emmett's head as he laughed then they were gone, too.

Carlisle came up to us. "Thank you for everything, Bella. Have a good night." He kissed mine and the girls' cheeks. Esme hugged each of us again then they, too, were gone. I sighed then turned to Edward.

"I guess that's everyone." I smiled at him. He smiled back.

"Yup. Now let's put these little monsters to bed." He said as the twins giggled then yawned. "Come on."

I got Carlie from him and he whispered to my ear. "Then we'll be alone…" I smacked him at his chest as he laughed.

"Let's go, Mr. The twins are still here and are falling asleep." I playfully narrowed my eyes at him and proceeded to the stairs and into the guest room we were staying at. We both tucked them in and kissed their foreheads.

As I was positioning myself onto the bed, Edward spoke. "What are you doing, Bella?"

"Uhm, staying?" I raised my eyebrows at him, trying to hold in my smile. He was confused.

"I thought you were…"

"Were what, Edward?" Oh God, I love teasing him. He narrowed his eyes at me, figuring out what I was doing then turned his back to me.

"Nothing. Well, I'll leave you three now. Good night, Bella." He said, walking back to his room. My jaw dropped in disbelief. Seriously?

I glared at the doorway where he just exited. "Yeah, good night, Edward." I said sweetly then rolled my eyes.

Two can play the game.

I looked at the clock on the nightstand. 2:30 am.

He is still not coming.

I scoffed at nothing. He's supposed to be here now, getting me, then putting me on his bed…

But nooooo, he's not.

I blew out some air in annoyance. I've been trying to read so I wouldn't march into his bedroom and kiss him but it was getting hard to refuse.

Damn it, Edward! Why won't you come and get me?

Frustrated, I jumped out of the bed – carefully, so I wouldn't wake up the twins – then paced inside the room silently. I can do this. I won't seem like a desperate slut or something.

But this was hard! Every so often, I would glanced at the doorway, hoping he would come…

Ugh!

After 15 minutes, I cried out in frustration. That's it! I'm coming there.

I stomped – silently, again, so no one would notice this silly game of ours – toward his bed room but before I make it there, I bumped into someone.

Edward.

I looked up to his eyes to see it gleaming. I narrowed my own eyes at him.

"So, where are you going stomping like that?" Edward said, smirking at me. I glared him.

"Nonya."

"Nonya?"

"Non ya business." (I know it's wrong but I forgot what it's really supposed to be like and I love to use it so yeah. Hahaha! Okay, sorry, go on now.) I turned back around then made a move back to the guest room but Edward stopped me.

He grabbed my wrist then turned me around facing him. He place his hand on my face.

"I see you still love humor. But I love something else." I looked at his face which is trying to hold back a smile. I still narrowed my eyes at him.

"Oh yeah? Then go on and love that something then."

"Gladly." Then he kissed me hard on the lips. I immediately responded and I vaguely noticed him carrying me back to his room.

Once there, we quickly moved to the bed then continued making out. When he began kissing my neck, I spoke.

"Edward?" I whispered, loving the feeling his kisses were giving me.

"Yes, love?"

"We can't do this."

He immediately stopped then sat up.

"oh, sorry." He whispered, sounding hurt. My eyes widened and I went up and hugged him.

"No, Edward, don't take it like that. I just meant that we shouldn't do it… yet. Please look at me, baby."

He looked at me and I can see the pain in his eyes that he was trying to hide. I caressed his face. "Please understand, Edward. I just said that we shouldn't do it yet."

"Why?"

"Because," I took a breath though I didn't need that and looked straight to his eyes. "Because the kids are just a few steps away from here."

He sighed in relief. "Really? That's all?"

I smiled at him. "Of course. I want you, too, but I wouldn't want the twins to walk in on us or hear us or anything. I think it would be weird for them."

"And why is that? We're inlove. What's wrong with it?"

I looked at him disbelievingly. "Seriously, Edward. We just got back together. They haven't known you for long. They're still adjusting with these things – like having a family. Having a dad." Then I looked down and fingered the hem of the shirt I was wearing. "Besides, I gave birth to twins. I know I'm a vampire but…"

Edward stopped me by kissing my lips. I responded to it. After a few seconds, he pulled back. "You're so silly, Bella." Then he smiled at me. "And I understand. But you have to know, I love you and I want you. Giving birth to twins didn't change you. You're still my beautiful Isabella Marie Swan, no matter what."

If I could cry, I would.

I hugged him. "Thank you, Edward. I want you, too. Just… let's do that some other time okay?"

He gave me a seductive smile. "Soon." Then he kissed me again.


No lemons. No limes. Just make out. I feel weird writing things like this... how will I be able to write a lemon? I don't think there will be... well... let's wait and see. I myself don't know what will happen. ;)

And the nonya thingy... how is that really said? I just heard that somewhere...

Oh, last. Listen to Skyscraper by Demi Lovato . I love that song. I just hope I can reach the last chorus. Sigh.

Love ya'll~! Keep the reviews coming! ;)
