Okay guys. Here is chpter 5.
So so soryy it took so long. Dont you all just hate school?
Lol anyways, Enjoy :D
"Bella I … "
I cut my sentence short when I heard Charlie's thoughts.
"Urggg I'm so tired. I need to go to bed. Thought I was going to fall asleep at the station."
I heard Charlie crash on the couch and I was inwardly rejoicing.
Bella interrupted my thoughts with a light tug on my collar. "Yes?"
"I think you should go to sleep now." I said.
Her eyes were extremely heave. Eyes rolling back in her head every few seconds as she struggled to keep them opened. She was going in and out of focus.
Yet Bella being Bella, sat up a little more and shook her head.
"Try" I whispered in her ear.
Again she refused.
"Why not?" I questioned her.
She was by far exhausted. Her energy level was completely drained. Why would she want to stay awake and make things harder on herself?
"I want to spend as long as possible with you." She replied simple.
Though her voice was even I could see her emotions in her tired eyes. The same look I saw in the forest when I was telling her goodbye. Hurt, loss, loneliness, confusion, but worst of all guilt. I knew she blamed herself for my leaving. I wish I could tell her I was awake. But what if she hated me?
"If you want me to go…"
She interrupted me with a voice that almost sounded choked.
"No please don't go! I need you to stay." She begged.
My mind seemed to click into place when she said that.
She needed me. She wanted me back, and I was sitting here letting her suffer: causing her even more pain.
"Bella, your not dreaming I'm here." I told her.
Staring into her eyes with all of my love and passion. Bella starred back at me with wide eyes.
"Impossible." She whispered. "You- I mean Edward left, a long time ago, and he's not coming back."
The sentence sounded like a reassurance, not to me, but to herself.
"Bella your not asleep, your not dreaming. You're awake love. I'm here. I've been here all along." I said trying to convince her.
She shook her head and whipped away a tear that fell
"why am I doing this to myself?" She cried.
Charlie unfortunately heard her and panicked. He heaved himself up to come cheek on Bella.
"Bella, Charlie's coming. Ill be in your closet okay?" I left before she could answer me.
Two and a quarter seconds after I shout the door to her closet Charlie, opened her door.
"You okay?" He asked.
Charlie sighed and came over and sat beside Bella.
"Look Bells, you need to start sleeping better. This isn't healthy and I'm worried about you. Your sleeping has been so bad the last few nights, even without any nightmares. I just…"Charlie came to a dead stop when Bella gasped and bolted up. He eyes going to immediately to the closet door.
"Bella?" Charlie asked.
"Man she's getting worse. I should try and get her to go back with her mother. I don't know what to do anymore."
When Charlie got no answer he shook her shoulder and said her names a few more times.
Bella's eyes turned slowly away from the closet door.
"I'm awake?" She whispered. Charlie nodded.
"I hope I didn't say anything to upset her. I think I should go now."
"Yeah your awake. But its after midnight so go to sleep. Okay Bella?" He asked as he got up and went intro the hall.
Bella made a quick nod and watched the door close behind her.
I opened and shut the door at vampire speed and went and sat in the rocking chair.
Bella must have saw the movement, she looked across the room to the rocking chair where I was sitting.
She practically threw herself off the bed into my waiting arms.
"Believe me now?" I whispered.
She nodded and locked her arms around my neck. As she planted a kiss on my cheek.
"Yes" She whispered into the crock of my neck.
Her hand found my hair and she grabbed fistfuls of it, once again holding on to me with a death grip.
I stroked her hair as I sang Bella, her lullaby. It took about two minutes for her to fall asleep. She didn't have any nightmares that night which was good.
Charlie cheeked on her the next morning before he left for the station. I hid in her closet and returned to her the second the bedroom door closed.
Bella woke up at 9:53. Her eyes fluttering open lightly with a sigh. I brushed a strand of hair from her forehead and I felt her tens.
When her eyes open she froze for a split second before curling up against my side.
"It wasn't a dream, you're here." She said threw her tears.
"I'm here." I told her.
In a part of my mind, a very, very small part I felt like laughing. Bella was very difficult to convince.
"I love you Edward." she whispered.
"I love you to Bella." I responded pulling her in for a kiss.
She froze at first but soon relaxed and started to kiss me back. Her lips were urgent against mine. Begging me for more.
Before her birthday party, I would be pulling away right now. But at this moment, I could care less.
Bella was the one to pull away when she needed air.
I laid my head on her chest and listened to her heart.
She kissed the top of my head lightly and rested her head on mine.
We stayed like that for a few minutes but Bella's growling stomach interrupted us. I laughed out loud and pulled her into my arms, running downstairs into the kitchen.
Alice being Alice was there with a giant feast for Bella. In fact it was probably enough to feed four people and still have extra.
"Bella I made you breakfast. You need to eat, your to thin." Alice said.
Looking at Bella's form. It was true, even threw her cloths I could tell she had lost weight, and weight she could afford to lose.
"Thanks Alice." Bella muttered, her face going red. I kissed Bella's cheek.
"I'm going back to get the family Edward take care of her until I get back." Alice thought.
"Leaving so soon?" I asked out loud for Bella's sake.
Alice nodded when Bella looked up.
"Yeah, I'm going to bring the rest of the family back to Forks. It should take about four days." Alice said. She hugged me and then Bella. "See you both in four days." She yelled a second before the door closed behind her.
"Your staying. Right?" Bella asked me.
I chuckled, "Yes I'm staying." I said.
Running my fingers along her cheek. Her eyes went out of focus and I knew she was "Dazzled" , as she put it.
"Are you happy Bella?" I asked her. Before she came out of her trance.
"I am now." She said. We talked about nothing while Bella finished her breakfast. She didn't eat as much as I wanted her to. But I couldn't really do anything about it.
Bella got up and pulled me into the living room. I sat down on the couch and turned on the TV.
She was laying with her head in my lap on the couch as I played with her hair when I got the idea. I felt a smile spread across my face at the thought. It grew bigger as I watched a smile form on Bella's face.
"Love, would you like to go to our meadow?" I asked her.
