A/N: This one is for you 01katie! You will love the ending :D
By the time Carlisle gets done talking, it is already ten at night. I agreed to stay with him even though that is a crazy thing to do, but he looked like he was hurting… it is weird though, I never would have thought that he could be so… gentle? Sometime during him talking I had laid down and he laid close beside me. I was still cautious about what he might do, but not once did he try to hit me or do anything to me for that matter, although he did grab my hand. I think he did that to reassure himself of something, I just don't have any idea of what he was reassuring himself about. At times, he would give my hand a squeeze like he was holding something back, but I didn't ask why. Even though I want to know what made him feel sad earlier, I think it would be best for him to tell me instead of me asking… eventually I know I will end up asking but not now. It's just not the right time.
Looking over at his sleeping form, I find that his face is calm and his breathing is even. Getting up from the bed, I make my way into the bathroom and take a shower. After getting out, I as quietly as I can, open the bedroom door but it squeaks. Turning my head, I make sure it didn't wake him up and I sigh in relief when it doesn't. Going down to the kitchen I open the fridge door and look inside. Fruit? Nah. What about some leftover dinner? Nope! Hmm… Yogurt sounds good. Pulling out vanilla yogurt, I look around the kitchen for any type of candy to go with it. To the left of the sink, I find some M&M's so I take a half of a handful then mix it in with the yogurt. Leaning against the counter, I take a bite.
"What are you doing?" Comes a voice making me jump and drop my spoon.
I look up to see Jasper standing by the table.
"Warn a girl would ya?" I say and sigh then grab a paper towel to clean up.
"Sorry," He chuckles softly.
"What are you doing up?" I ask him.
"I could ask you the same thing…. But I couldn't get to sleep. You?"
"The vanilla?" He asks.
"Yep," I pop the 'p'.
"Carlisle won't like that too much."
I shrug. "He can suck my left nut for all I care."
"I knew he was gay," He smiles and walks over.
I laugh a little. "Right. Then it is too bad I'm not."
"What did you put in it?"
I take a bite. "M&M's."
"No one said you had to eat it," I tell him.
"True… So did he talk to you?"
I nod slightly. "Yep."
"He'll lighten up soon enough… He's been through a lot."
I look up at him. "What do you mean?"
"It's best for him to explain things to you…" Jasper trails off and he starts to walk away.
"It's about that room… isn't it?" I ask before he rounds the corner.
"Yeah," He looks at me. "It's about that room."
After crawling into bed and laying down, my body starts to relax slightly. What is in that room that he doesn't want me to see? Carlisle's hand reaches over and goes on my back. I look over at him to see his eye still closed and his breathing is still even. He is asleep. Closing my eyes, I let sleep take over.
A week and a half passes by and Carlisle hasn't laid a hand on me… yet. I keep waiting for him to do it but it hasn't come yet, not that I want him to hit me but I expect him to.
"Bella?" Carlisle says from behind me.
I stop playing with the flower peddles and turn around.
"Would you like to watch a movie with me?" He asks seeming a little nervous.
I think about it for a few seconds then slowly nod. His eyes seem to light up when I agree and he walks beside me as we walk in. I can smell popcorn and Carlisle goes into the kitchen then comes back a second later with a huge bowl of popcorn.
"I hope you plan on making more," I tell him in a serious tone.
Carlisle chuckles. "Don't worry."
Instead of going to the living room we go up to his room.
"The TV is broken down there," He explains.
I nod a little and sit on the bed as he closes the door and comes over to the other side and sits down pressing play with the controller. We watch Cheaper by the Dozen along with the second one but I end up falling to sleep a little more half way through the second one.
I look down at Bella as she sleeps. She is on her side with her one arm bent under her head and the other bent in front of her face. Softly, I stroke her hair.
"Beautiful, Bella," I whisper in her ear.
Bella shifts slightly and moves a little closer to me making me smile a little. I get up and do take the popcorn bowl down to the kitchen then put it in the dish washer.
"She asking," Jasper says.
Turning around I look at him. "Did you tell her?"
He shakes his head. "She knows it is something about her room… you need to tell her soon.
"Don't you think I know that?" I sigh. "I can't tell her yet."
"Alice called me…"
"You two going out tonight?" I ask him and grab a beer out of the fridge.
"Uh… well… she kind of insisted that she come over here and have dinner… with all of us."
"Of course she did. Well, better prepare, Bella."
I take a swing of my beer.
After finishing my beer, I make my way up to my room to see Bella on her back with her shirt just above her bellybutton. I lick my lips as I see her milky skin, I shake the thought of what I want to do so badly to her and go sit next to her on the edge of the bed.
"Bella," I say and shake her a little.
She moans softly and smacks my hand away. Well I guess she likes her sleep.
"Wake up, Bella," I say again rubbing her arm gently.
"Hmm…? What?" She mumbles.
"My sister is coming over in a little bit," I tell her.
Bella bolts straight up bumping me hard in the head.
"OW!" We yell.
I hold my head in my hands. "Damn!" I yell rubbing the tender spot.
"You've got a hard head," Carlisle tells me.
I groan softly. "You too," I mutter.
"My sister is coming over," He tells me again.
"Yeah I got that part down. Anything I should know?" I ask.
"She will pound you with question, she is abnormally hyper all the time, she loves shopping, and I think that is it."
"So pretty much the opposite of me," I say.
"Yeah you could say that."
"We are cooking out tonight."
I nod. "What time?"
"I'm getting in the shower."
I mix the noodles, butter, and diced tomatoes together in the pot adding salt and pepper to it also. Macaroni and tomatoes. YUM!
"What are you making?" Carlisle comes in from the deck.
"Macaroni and tomatoes," I tell him.
He gives me a funny look.
"What? Its good."
Raising an eyebrow at me, he walks over pulling out a fork from the drawer then takes a bite.
"Hm," He says. "Not bad."
"Not bad? That's all?" I say. "Its more than 'not bad' its more than awesome!" I tell him.
Carlisle gives me a look. "Calm down kitten."
I flick his forehead. "I am not a kitten," I tell him and turn my back against him stirring up the pot.
"Oh come on! I was joking," He tells me.
I say nothing and pretend he isn't there. Well that is, of course, until he starts to tickle me on my sides. I shriek and start laughing. I hear him laughing in my ear as he holds me up, tickling me more.
"Stop it!" I yell.
"Nope!" He laughs.
My legs give out and he catches me. His face is close to mine and we both lean in closer, looking into each others eyes.
"I'm home!" Yells someone.
Instantly, we stand up straight and situate ourselves.
"In here, Alice!" Yells Carlisle as I take the food off of the burner and put it on a different one.
"And why haven't you answered any of my calls?" She asks.
"I've been a little…"
"You must be, Bella!" She all but yells at me.
"Uh…" I cant form any words so I just nod.
"We should go shopping! Where do you like to shop? Ohh! We should have a double date! Where did you-" Alice starts.
"Alice!" Carlisle yells.
She looks at him. "What?" She asks in an innocent voice.
"Come on, Alice," Say Jasper says standing up from the table.
Jasper leans down slightly and whispers something in her ear. She smiles widely and stands up, after they leave Carlisle looks at me.
"What?" I ask.
Carlisle stands up then takes my hand pulling me outside to the deck.
"What are you doing?" I ask just as he pulls me close to him and puts his hand on my back, slowly dancing in circles looking down at me.
I look back into his eyes and suddenly it feels as if I am in heaven when our lips touch. Carlisle presses his lips harder on mine, deepening the kiss, but he doesn't rush it. My eyes slip close and I let myself relax in his arms kissing him back. His lips feel soft against my slightly chapped ones. My arms go around his neck, pulling him closer to me as he puts his arms around my waist picking me up high enough that we are now leveled with each other. Carlisle tongue darts out, sliding it across my bottom lip asking for access and I grant him that moaning softly from the taste of beer on his tongue.
"WAAAAHHHOOOAAHOOO!" Yells three voices making us both jump from the noise and when we look over, we see Alice, Jasper, and Emmett.
"THIS IS HOT! KEEP IT GOING AND DON'T MIND US!" Yells Emmett.
I can feel my cheeks get hot and I bite my lower lip. Carlisle looks at me, setting me on my feet before kissing me again.
