"Bella! You're going to have to tell me what the hell is going on! I'm freaking out here." Edward said, hovering over me.
"Chill out, Edward, My just water broke, I'm having the babies. We need to get to the hospital. There is a bag upstairs that I packed, if you just go get that, we can go." I said calmly, holding my stomach as another contraction hit me. Jeesh, I read that it was painful, but this hurt like a bitch!
"Okay, okay! Where is it?" He grabbed at his hair and ran for the stairs.
"In the closet!" I called after him.
I pulled the ponytail holder off of my wrist and tied it into my hair, I was going to need it. After that was done, I went into the living room to grab my flip flops. There was no use wearing tennis shoes if I was just going to take them off anyway and really, my feet probably wouldn't be able to fit into them anyway.
"I got it! I got it!" Edward barreled into the room and ran over to me. "What do we do now?" His hair was worse than its usual mess and his eyes were wild and panicked.
"Edward, you need to relax, this is my first time too. Just get me to the hospital." I grabbed his face in my hands, kissed him, then grabbed his hand and pulled him to the garage.
He quickly tossed the bag into the back seat and I waddled to get in the passenger seat. Once we were all seated Edward sped down the driveway, bursting through the gate that had barely opened wide enough for the car to fit through. I decided I needed to talk to Edward and try to get him to call down.
"Okay, you need to relax." I rubbed his arm, trying to get his hands to relax on the steering wheel, where his hands gripped until his knuckles were white. "I know, you've been home for 20 minutes and I'm already in labor, but you are going to wreck if you don't calm down and slow the car down."
"How can you be so calm about this?" He said, breathing deeply.
"I've had 9 months to prepare for this and you've known for about 3 and a half. I've read the books and I know that calm is the best way through this."
"I don't know what I'd do without you, baby." He grabbed my hand and kissed it as he pulled into the emergency entrance. He grabbed the bag and helped me out of the car, hurrying me to the front desk.
"Excuse me, my wife is in labor." Edward said simply to the older woman sitting behind the desk. I covered my mouth with my hand, trying to hide my giggles.
"Oh, goodness! Let me contact the doctor and get you a wheelchair." She said, smiling at us and quickly paging the doctor and alerting a nurse to grab a wheelchair.
I thanked the nurse who brought me the wheelchair, and held Edward's hand as she pushed me into the elevator and up to the labor unit on the 3rd floor. When we reached the room, I hopped – well, not literally – only to the bed where I was prepped.
Doctor Moor came in and check how dilated I was and told me I still had a while to go. She even told Edward how happy she was that he was back as he sat next to me, his knee bouncing up and down anxiously as he held my hand.
"I love you." I said to him. His eyes snapped up to me mine and he gave me a breathtaking crooked smile.
"And I love you." He said before moving to kiss me. We were really getting into until another contraction hit and I pulled away, letting out a loud agonizing groan.
Edward looked pained for a moment before turning his attention to the nurse that just walked in.
"Mrs. Cullen, we need to know if you want an epidural or not so we can get started on that as soon as possible." Great, just who I wanted. Lauren.
Another contraction hit and I groaned, "Oww, yes. Please, quickly!" Edward rubbed my hand and stood over me, trying to be soothing. Lauren took notice to this.
"Oh, Edward! It's like so amazing to have you back and stuff." She batted her eyelashes and twirled her hair on her finger, holding the clipboard in the other hand, completing ignoring me.
"Lauren, just get the damn epidural!" I yelled, another contraction racking my body. I started to cry from the pain and she ran out of the room.
"Oh, baby, don't cry. Shah, don't cry." Edward wiped my tears away with the pads of his thumbs, looking ready to cry himself.
"It hurts, Edward." I sniffed and he bent down to kiss me chastely.
"I know, I know. But just think of the outcome. We'll get to hold our two beautiful children with your hair color and gorgeous brown eye. Those full lips and cute button nose. They'll look just like you." He ran his hand through my hair and down my cheeks, smiling at me.
"We need to call your family. Give me the phone and I'll do it." I said breathlessly, recovering from another contraction.
"No, I'll just call Alice and have her call everyone else and then she can just come back. I'm assuming you want her in here during the birth?" I nodded. "Okay. I'll be right back."
"No, don't leave me!" I cried.
"Okay, okay, I'll just stay in here and call her." He gave me his lopsided smile and I released a breath.
After Edward called Alice and the doctor came in to check everything, I was told I still had about an hour or so left of this. They gave me the epidural and I could finally halfway relax and not have the intense pain of contractions every 3 minutes.
"Bella! Edward!" Alice cried as she ran into the room. She immediately ran to Edward, hugging him with all she had then ran over to me giving me a light hug.
"Where's everyone else?" I asked her.
"They're out in the waiting room worrying. You know Esme she's always been like that towards her kids." She nodded, shrugging.
"And none of them know Edward is back?" I grabbed Edward's hand and he pulled mine to his mouth and kissed it, giving me his signature smile.
"No clue. I just told them you called and told me to come straight to the hospital and that they were supposed to come back too. Esme is going to freak out!" Alice seemed excited, bouncing slightly on her toes with her hands clasped in front of her.
She remained at my bedside for the duration of our waiting. Edward and I shared small kisses every now and then, making Alice turn her head and fake gag. The dull pain in my stomach wasn't very bothersome, just slight pressure once in a while.
What seemed like hours later, but was only about half of an hour, the doctor came in, nurses following behind closely. I figured we were nearing the point where I would need to start pushing and moved into a more comfortable position.
"Okay, Bella, we're going to check your dilation and you might be ready to start pushing. Are you ready for this?" Dr. Moor said, maneuvering the stirrups around for my legs to fit in.
"As I'll ever be, I guess." I grinned at Edward who smiled right back, putting on his scrubs over his clothes along with the face mask thing. Alice was doing the same on the other side of me, complaining about the plain color of the scrubs.
"It looks like you're at ten! We need to start pushing." My feet were in the stirrups, Edward and Alice standing next to me, holding my hands in support. I could do this.
I took a deep breath. "Alright, Bella, push!"
Forty-Five minutes of pushing and sweating profusely and out came baby number one. From all the commotion and the cries of my baby, I could barely hear Dr. Moor call out, "It's a girl!", Alice's squeal of approval and Edward's whispers of love and telling me that I was doing great.
"We still have another one to go. Come on, Bella."
Another hour of pushing and out came my baby boy. Edward was grinning from ear to ear and Alice was trying to cope with my little boy. Edward wiped the sweat from my forehead with a cold rag he had gotten.
All of the facts were given to me after both babies were cleaned up, wrapped into a blue and pink blanket, and given to Edward and me. Baby number one, a little girl, was 5 pounds 9 ounces and 14 inches long with a mess of Edward's red-ish hair on top of her head. She had yet to open her eyes, which were probably changing from the blue color every new born baby's were. Baby number two, a little boy, was 5 pounds 4 ounces and 16 inches long with dark brown hair that was also wild and sticking up everywhere.
"Have you thought of any names?" Edward whispered, staring down at his daughter with a dazed look in his eyes. Her tiny hand had his index finger in a tight grip and he was smiling widely, cooing to her softly. It brought tears to my eyes to him with her.
"Not really, actually. Have you?" I actually hadn't really thought of any names. I guess I should have, but I didn't want to do anything without Edward. Alice did everything in the nursery with little say from me, which didn't bother me a bit.
"Maybe a few." He said sheepishly. I offered him our little boy in exchange for our little girl and he carefully placed her in my arms taking him.
"That's great! What are they?" I smiled down at my adorable little girl, tracing her delicate features with my finger.
"Most of them are named after our family. You know, names we can pass down." He shrugged, cooing to our baby boy the same way he was with our baby girl.
I gasped, having an idea. "Can we name him after you, Edward? Please, please, please?"
"Come on, please? You're named after your grandfather and I want your name to be passed down too! Please?" I begged, sticking my bottom lip out.
He smiled, leaning down to kiss me. "Of course we can, baby."
"Yea! What about Edward Carlisle? So he can have two family names. And so we all know who we're talking to, we can call him Eddie! I know you really hate that name for you, but it's good for a little boy, right?"" I suggested.
"That sounds great." He said, hesitating for a second.
After a few minutes of discussing and me moving over in my bed so Edward and Edward Jr. could fit in the hospital bed, we had our little girl's name narrowed down to two possibilities. Elizabeth Marie or Anna Marie. Edward absolutely insisted that since our son was named after him our daughter had to be name after me in some way. So she'll have my middle name either way.
"I really, really like Anna." I said to Edward, feeding Edward Jr. The nurse had come in and showed me how to get him to latch on and breastfeed and it wasn't any trouble trying to get him to either.
"I really, really like it too." Edward smiled at me and kissed me, both of us getting into it more than anticipated.
"Edward." He kissed me again, not letting me talk. "Edward…Edward!" He finally pulled away with a frustrated look on his face. "We have to bring your family back here. We have yet to give Alice 'the signal' and she's been out there since we first got them."
"Right." He grumbled, giving me one last kiss before pulling out his phone and texting Alice with one hand, holding Eddie in the other arm.
Alice burst through the door about a minute later, the whole family trailing in behind her. No one even noticed Edward until they came over to look at the babies and noticed an extra set of arms holding Eddie.
Esme went nuts. Alice immediately took Eddie out of Edward's arms just in time for Esme to attack Edward in a furious hug. He hugged her back tightly and she sobbed in his shoulder.
"Oh, my baby! I can't believe you're back!" She said, kissing all over his face. He gently pushed her away, kissing her head, assuring her that he was back for good. She hugged him one last time and finally pulled away to look at her grandchildren.
"Glad to have you back, brother." I heard Emmett say to Edward and engage in some kind of manly hug. They talked for a minute, but I couldn't make out the whole conversation.
"They're so adorable!" Alice said. She was holding Eddie and Esme was holding Anna, giving me and Edward and chance to talk without the babies for a second.
"So Rosalie had their baby? It's a boy? What's his name?" Edward asked, looking at Emmett who was holding John.
"Jonathan Daniel. Isn't he cute? Though Rose and Emmett have had a hard time with him. Apparently, he's a screamer at night and they never get any sleep. But they said it's gotten better lately." I shrugged.
Edward just nodded. I noticed him just looking at Jonathan and flagged down Emmett, who walked over to where I was sitting. Edward was now just talking to Carlisle, not really paying attention. I talked to Emmett and he handed me John then went back over to Rosalie who was now holding Anna.
"Edward." I said quietly. He looked over to me and noticed I had John. He smiled, running a finger over John's cheek. "They made you godfather, you know. Do you want to hold him?" He just took him out of my arms.
"Really? Why would they do that? I wasn't even here."
"Edward, don't be stupid. You're Emmett's brother. Whether you were here or not, you guys are closer than any brothers I have ever seen and he would have made you godfather if you were dead." I told him kissing his cheek and running my hand through his hair.
The whole family stayed until visiting hours were over. We were staying overnight so they could keep an eye on the babies just like always and if everything looked okay, we would be able to leave the next day.
They, meaning Doctor Moor and the nurses, took the babies to the nursery at about ten, leaving me and Edward alone in the hospital bed. We got into some intense making out and Edward even started to role on top of me and into position for you know what. Apparently he didn't know that we had to wait awhile to do that.
"Edward, honey, we have to stop." He was kissing my neck and I was trying very hard to not just breakdown and let him rip open my vagina.
"Why?" He mumbled against my skin.
"Well, first, we're in a hospital and people can hear us." I said and he narrowed his eyes at me. "And second, you obviously didn't read the baby books I sent you because we have to wait 6 weeks before we can do 'that' again."
He gasped and looked up at me with an expression that made me bust up laughing. I kissed him once, pushing him off of me and rolled onto my side, falling into a peaceful sleep with my soldier by my side.
Aww, good ending right? I'm so happy for these two! Do you ever read something where Edward and Bella were in a bad situation or a good situation and you're like how could this happen? Or I just love that Edward did that and then you realize. The author made this happen and not actually Edward and Bella. I do that all the time and you know how I tell them how I feel?...
