Don't get too excited. This is NOT a sequel, this is the same ending of The Escort. I just decided to split the story into two parts since most people liked the beginning and not the end. Now you have a choice, you can save/read both parts or choose to just read/save the first half, up to you. Thanks for reading! ;)
I sat on my lid covered toilet, staring at the device that lay on the bathroom countertop. It has been one week, one whole week of waiting and stressing over the possibility of being pregnant. Edward had reminded me time and time again he would be there for me if I was indeed pregnant. It meant a lot to hear that but at the same time I couldn't help but wonder if he would still stick around after hearing the results.
Even after Edward expressed his true feelings for me, nothing really changed between us. He still came around every once in a while to make sure I was doing okay but he kept his distance. We were close when it came to sleeping. Edward pretty much slept over at my house every night and of course was big on the whole cuddling thing. However, that was the only intimate touching that was shared between us since we first expressed our I love you's to each other and decided to deal with this whole pregnancy issue. I think he was just as nervous as I was to know the outcome.
Though it would have been nice to have Edward by my side while I waited for the test results, a part of me was glad he wasn't around for them. I was scared enough as it was I didn't need Edward's added nervous energy on top of my own. A part of me was nervous to see Edward's face when the results were revealed. I wondered if he would be relieved or angered.
Instead, I had Alice by my side. I already peed on the stick. All that was left to do was wait for the time to past and read the results. We made an agreement that Alice would read the outcome to me. I was too nervous to do it myself.
All week Alice rambled on about how I would make a great mother and how she would love to be an auntie. She told me she would be called Aunt Alice, and would take the little one on many shopping trips. I of course reminded her that we didn't even know the results yet. She would just grin and her eyes would light up as I pigged out on some good junk food. I couldn't understand how she could be so sure I was pregnant. I was always a nervous eater. So, I couldn't really say my eating habits changed or anything else for that matter.
I nearly jumped off the toilet in surprise when the little timer we set went off. It was time. It was scary to know a tiny stick was going to predict my future. Everything could possibly change in mere minutes.
I took a deep, shaky breath as Alice brought the stick up to her view. I anxiously watched her face as I chewed on my nails nervously. I hoped her facial expressions might give something away. However, her face remained blank. Alice was quiet too. I had never seen her quiet before. I took that as a bad sign.
Shit, that doesn't look good.
"Well?" I asked anxiously, not really sure if I wanted to know the results or not.
She slowly turned the device over revealing two light pink lines. I thought back trying to recall what that meant.
Two lines, what the hell does that mean again?
Shit, please be negative, please be negative.
"It's positive." Alice clarified, unable to hold her hidden smile back anymore.
"What?" I asked grabbing the packet the device came out of, reading what two lines indicated again.
No, that can't be right.
Alice must have read it wrong.
"You're going to be a mommy!" Alice gushed, jumping up and down in excitement.
What the hell is she so excited about?
I skim the box over and sure enough Alice was right. Two lines meant positive and one line meant negative. What this meant for Edward and me, I wasn't sure. He didn't even have a job yet. He was actually out looking for a new job during my home testing.
Why God, why?
What did I ever do to deserve this?
Shit, how is Edward going to take the news?
I sat there stunned as Alice came up and gave me a hug.
What am I going to do?
"No, no, no, I don't think so." I voiced, braking Alice's death squeeze heading out the room.
Alice's form turned from happy to confused in a blink of an eye, and quickly followed me out to the main entrance.
"Bella, where are you going?" Alice questioned as I opened the front door.
"To the doctors. Obviously there has been some mistake with that stupid test kit. I'm going to see what a professional doctor has to say."
"Bella, those tests are pretty precise. There like ninety seven percent accurate." Alice stated.
"Yeah, well, that leaves a three percent chance of error. I want to be one hundred percent sure about this. You stay here. I don't want Edward to come back here to find no one around and I'm not sure when he will be coming back."
"Wait, what if Edward does come back here before you, what do I say?" Alice asked unsure.
"Tell him I went to the doctor for a normal checkup. He is already worried enough as it is. I don't want to worry him until there is something to worry him about. I should be back soon. Thanks Alice." I voiced before closing the door behind me.
"Okay Edward, tell me a little bit about yourself?" A man in a business suit who was interviewing me asked.
It was a little hard to concentrate, as well as hear what Sam, my interviewer, was asking. There was lots of loud noises and lot of movements happening around us. It was kind of annoying. The sounds of people chatting loudly, along with banging dishes and shouts and cheers over the game that was on the television in the bar area was very distracting. I forced myself to keep eye contact with Sam even though I was aching to know what was going on around me. I even smiled a couple of times; trying to assure him of the confidence I once had in myself.
"Well, what would you like to know? I don't want to bore you with my life story." I said.
Shit, what am I doing?
Sam didn't look pleased with my response. I panicked and began to ramble.
"Wait, I mean, not that am boring I just don't want to waste your time. I sure you are a busy man and need to get back to work soon. You guys look packed today."
What is wrong with me?
Dumbass, am I trying to sabotage my chances?
I could feel the sweat start to come over my forehead and suddenly my tie was starting to feel like it was choking me. I fought the urge to loosen it and gave Sam another smile.
God it's hot in here.
I can't wait to get out of these clothes.
Sam let out a sigh looking over my application.
"Okay, let's move on. How about you tell me what the position is you're applying for?" He said meeting my eyes again.
"I'm applying for a waiter position. I have been a waiter before, so I already know what it entitles." I stated.
Sam's once disappointed expression lightened up at the news. He was now looking hopeful which helped me feel better about my chances as well.
"Why should we hire you?" He challenged, arching an eyebrow.
"Well, I have experience in this field and I'm good with people. I have a great memory. I never forgot an order or made a mistake on someone's order before."
Sam nodded along to my words as he looked his questions over.
"What's the reason for leaving your last job?" He asked curious.
This was a bad idea.
What the fuck do I say?
I refused to fuck women for money anymore or my boss went to jail for running a prostitution agency?
I think Sam could tell I was uncomfortable over his recent question. I sat quiet for a good minute or two and began fidgeting with my hands.
"Umm, it's complicated and I rather not go into it, if you don't mind. I'll just say my last boss and I didn't agree on much and I felt taken advantage of."
"Sure, I understand. You have a right to your privacy. As long as your reason for living wasn't because of violence or anything of that nature, we are good."
"Oh, you don't have to worry about me. I'm a very even-tempered man."
For the most part anyway.
"Good, glad to hear that. Now, what do you hope to gain working here?"
"That's easy, I hope to gain what everyone hopes to gain, money." I said with a chuckle.
Sam was not laughing in fact his face was stern.
Shit, I should have said knowledge or responsibility.
I think I would have better luck if I just tape my mouth shut and nod.
This is going to be a long interview.
I sat on the examination table and waited for the doctor to arrive. It felt like an hour had passed before my doctor entered the door. Though it had only been about a fifteen minute wait in reality, it felt like an eternity.
I quickly sat up as he came in. I gave him a quick look over. He was quite attractive for an older man. He had a kind looking face with his blue eyes and warm smile. He had short blonde hair, a nice lean, tall built and went by the name of Cullen, Dr. Cullen.
I had to laugh at that. God was surely playing a sick joke on me. Out of all the doctors I could have gotten I had to get the one with the same last name as Edward.
It's just a coincidence.
There are many Cullen's in the world today.
Besides, Edward doesn't have blonde hair.
"Tell me Bella, what brings you here today?" He asked looking up from his chart, scanning me over for any visible injuries.
I lightly blushed feeling his eyes on me. It took me a moment to respond.
"Oh, ah, umm, a blood test." I announced shyly.
He nodded while writing on his chart.
"Okay, what kind of blood test?"
"Umm, a pregnancy test." I mumbled biting on my lower lip.
Dr. Cullen stopped writing long enough to give me a sympathetic look. I guess my nervousness was easy to see.
"Oh, you're twenty four. I have a son around that age." Dr. Cullen announced as he continued looking over my paper work.
It can't be, can it?
Edward never mention was his father did for a living.
The last thing I need is for Edward's possible father to find out I'm pregnant before he even knows.
"Oh, really?" I replied, humoring him.
"Yes, he is pretty successful. He works as a music agent."
Oh thank you god!
"Wow, that's cool."
"Yeah, the only thing is he is not so good in the love department. I guess that's how it works though; you either have the career or the love life. Not many people are lucky enough to have both. I'm fortunate to be one of those few people."
"Awe, how sweet."
"What about you? Do you have anyone special in your life?" He asked intrigued.
"Umm, sort of. It's complicated." I stated, not really wanting to talk about it.
Dr. Cullen smiled before speaking.
"Love always is. I'll be right back, I just have to plug in some information into the computer and then we will go ahead with the test, okay?"
"Uh huh, oh, just out of curiosity, what is your son's name? I might have heard of his agency."
"Oh. Edward, Edward Cullen. I'll be right back."
What the fuck?
Are you fucking kidding me?
I was so upset. I just met my boyfriend's father and he never even heard of me. He thought Edward was single. Shit, well I guess technically he was. We never talked about becoming boyfriend and girlfriend but we were way past friends. You would think he would at least mention me to his parents. My parents knew about Edward already. Shit, my dad wasn't even talking to me because of it.
I came back home to find only Edward waiting inside. He was sitting on the couch still in his suit, his tie was off though and the two top buttons on his dress shirt were undone. He looked hot as always but I was not about to have his appearance affect me like it often did. I was pissed off at him and he was going to get what was coming to him.
"So, what happened, Alice said you went to the doctor. Is everything okay, did you find out the results?" He asked anxious for the news, getting up from his spot and coming closer.
"Guess who my doctor was?" I challenged.
Edward took a step back sensing my angered mood.
Edward cringed at my words and ran a hand through his hair.
"Oh really, that's awkward."
"Yeah, guess how awkward it was for me to find out he knows nothing about me."
"Edward, why haven't told your parents about us? My parents already know all about you."
"Exactly, and look how that turned out. I want to wait till I'm settled in a new job and I'm back in college before talking to them."
"Okay, well, for your information, you're going to have to find a new job fast."
"Because I can't afford a baby alone on my salary."
"You mean you're…"
"I took a test and had blood work done. It's been confirmed, I'm pregnant."
Edward gasped in surprised. I expected him to run out the front door, instead, he moved closer to me and wrapped his arms around me in a tight embrace.
"I won't let you down Bella. I'm in this all the way." He whispered next to my ear.
Am I the only one not looking forward to this?
Note: Sorry, I know this chapter is not the best. I could have waited and seen if I felt like added more later on but I'm impatient. Lol! By the way, happy mother's day to all the moms out there! ;)
