Chapter 11


"What?" Alice screeched as soon as the words had escaped my mouth. Rose smiled widely at me as Alice jumped up and down in her seat.

I laughed lightly at her and nodded.

"Knew this would happen," Rose said dismissingly, taking a sip of her drink.

"This is so exciting!" Alice jumped up to hug me. "You and Edward were meant to be together,"

"I know," I laughed, hugging her back. "That's why we're back together."

"How did it happen?" Rose asked curiously as Alice sat back down in her chair at the table.

"I just realised that I loved him, and that I wanted to give it another try," I said with a shrug. I thought of the events of that night, and I started to blush, causing Rose's eyes to narrow.

"You had sex," she stated, playfully hitting my arm whilst shaking her head.

Alice nearly spat out her tea.

"What?" I gaped, my eyes wide.

"Don't even try to deny it," she laughed.

Alice squealed again in joy, clapping her hands together. You would think she would've found this conversation awkward, considering Edward is her brother.

"Damn you Rose," I huffed. "I thought Alice was the psychic."

We all laughed together, before Alice's high pitched laugh dissolved into a grumble as she muttered to herself. Rose and I stared at her questioningly.

"I need to pee again," she grumbled, getting up. "I swear this baby is dancing on my bladder."

I had to cover my mouth so as not to laugh and unhinge the wrath of pregnancy hormones as I watched Alice walk out of the kitchen. Although she was only twenty weeks along in her pregnancy, she had already started to waddle. Perhaps this was due to her miniature size.

After Alice disappeared around the corner, I glanced at Rose who was staring straight at me, thoughtfully.


"How long did it take you?" she asked.

"Huh?" I was utterly confused.

"To get pregnant, I mean" she explained, looking at me intently. I scratched my head, looking down at the table before I answered her question.

"Well, it wasn't exactly planned…" I trailed off, a warm blush filling my cheeks. I was on the pill when I got pregnant, although I didn't exactly take it religiously at the time. "Remember?"

"Right, right," she nodded, followed by a sigh as she slumped down in her chair. I knew what her problem was, but I was unsure if I should approach her about it, or stay quiet.

"No luck yet?" I finally asked, breaking our silence.

"I'm starting to think it's never going to happen," she scoffed. I leaned across to hold her hand in a comforting gesture. "Whatever, at least I'm having fun trying." She laughed with a wink.

"That's the spirit!"

Mase was holding my hand tightly as we entered the hospital. We were going in for a check-up to make sure that his platelets were still working fine.

I hope I bump into Edward.

I had only been apart from him for one day and I was already missing him greatly. It's like teenage years all over again.

As we walked through the halls, various people said hello to us. Doctors and nurses alike. That's what I loved about this hospital in particular, everyone was always so kind. Although, it could just be the fact that I'm married to one of the most favoured doctors.

"Look who's here!" I heard a familiar, gentle voice. I looked up to see Carlisle walking towards us with a warm smile set on his face. Mase called out for him, running towards him and practically jumping on him.


I laughed lightly, waving at him.

Note to self: Don't let Masen drink coke from your cup. He turns into a male version of Alice.

"Here for his check-up?" Carlisle asked, looking at me.

I nodded.

"I can do it," he said. "It would save you having to stay in the waiting room for ages. Besides, I've just finished my shift, so I'm free,"

"Oh, I don't want to put you out or anything,"

"Nonsense Bella," he laughed, shaking his head. "It's fine. Now, c'mon and we'll get this over with," he said to Mase, carrying him to one of the rooms.

I followed closely behind, unsure if he wanted me in the room with him or not.

"Edward is in his office, if you're looking for him," Carlisle said casually, looking back at me. "I'm sure Masen is alright here with me."

Did he know…?

"Right then, I guess I'll see you soon?" I kissed Mase's cheek before briskly walking down the corridor to Edward's office.

I paused with my hand on the handle for a second.

"Are you going to go in, or…?"

I spun around, startled, and came face to face with the most handsome man I knew, Edward.

"Jesus," I sighed, my hand clutching at my chest.

He snorted at my reaction, causing me to playfully punch him in the arm.

"Ow," he grumbled, feigning hurt as he rubbed his arm. For a second, I thought that I actually hurt him, until he laughed lightly and pulled me in for a hug.

"I missed you," he breathed as I tightened my arms around his waist.

"I missed you too," I mumbled into his chest.

Edward pulled away slightly and looked at me mischievously. My eyes narrowed at him as I tried to figure out what he was thinking. He smirked at me, leaning down so that his lips were right beside my ear.

"You know what we haven't done in a while," he whispered, grabbing my hand and leading me into his office.

I gasped once I realised what he was suggesting. Every now and then, I would come into the hospital on Edward's lunch break, and we'd, well, let's just say we'd test out the stability of his desk. Or his leather chair.

"We can't! Mase will be finished soon,"

Edward closed the door, turning the key. He moved towards me, pulling me against him and crashing his lips to my own. I groaned as I felt his tongue glide across my bottom lip, and I immediately granted him access, allowing our tongues to dance together.

He pulled away, leaving me breathless.

"You were saying?"

"Nothing at all," I whispered, pulling him in for another kiss. We moved backwards until the backs of my legs hit his desk. He lifted me up onto it in one swift movement, and came to stand in between my legs.

Hope you all enjoyed :)

I'm heading off to a carnival later today! Yay! I'm taking my eight year old cousin with me. Should be fun. :D

~ Until next time.
