This is a chapter one of my new story. Let me know if you want me to continue.
Let It Go : Frank + Derol
The buzzing needed to stop. I rolled over and shut off my alarm clock as it flashed six in the morning. I got out of bed and slowly made my way to the bathroom, I brushed teeth and combed my hair. I slowly made my way back into my room and walked over to my closet. I grabbed a pair of wide trouser dress pants and a red button up shirt and six inch heels. Once I was changed I walked into my kids room and woke them up.
"Five minutes," my five year old son Blake mumbled as I clicked on the light. I looked over and my three year old daughter, Maggie, rubbed her sleepy eyes and sat up in her bed.
"No five minutes, " I told him "let's go. Brush your teeth and get dressed for school." I pick up Maggie and carried her to the bathroom and set her on the counter. I grabbed her princess toothbrush and put a little paste on it. "Brush." I handed it to her. Blake walked in and grabbed his Spiderman toothbrush and started brushing as well. "Help your sister when you're done." I walked down to the kitchen and got out three bowls and pulled out all the cereal. Knowing my kids they wouldn't know what to choose.
"Mom!" I heard Blake call "Can you help us, please?" I walked upstairs to a three year old in a diaper and Blake still in his pajamas. I grabbed a pair of jeans and a purple sweater and dressed Maggie.
"Go downstairs and pick out your cereal." I told Maggie as she shuffled out of the room. I helped Blake dress in his little uniform which consisted of khakis, and a nice dress shirt with a tie. I followed him downstairs and saw Maggie sitting at the table with Fruit Loops resting her in lap. I poured her some in a bowl and added milk. While Maggie ate I brushed her hair and pulled it back into a ponytail. Blake got himself cereal and I grabbed a cup of coffee.
"Mommy, how many more days of school left?" Blake asked as he ate his cereal. "I don't like waking up early."
"A week and you're on winter break for a few weeks." I told him.
"Santa!" Maggie said from her seat.
"Yes, sweetie Santa is coming soon." I looked at the clock and finished up my coffee. "Bowls in the sink and let's get your coats and shoes on." The kids were fast to put their shoes on and we headed out the door.
"Alright, Blake I'll get you at two and Maggie I'll come get you at noon and you're coming to work with mommy then." I told them as I drove towards the school.
"When is daddy coming to get me, mommy?" Blake asked from the back seat. "He's coming right?"
"He's supposed to come get you tonight, honey. If not you're stuck with me." I laughed pulling up to the school. Blake helped Maggie out of her car seat and they jumped out of the car. "I love you."
"Wuv you, mama." Maggie yelled as she walked in with Blake. Blake turned and waved and I drove to work. I worked as a secretary for the FBI. I mostly answered phones, and set up appointments door people that needed to speak to the agents.
"Good morning, beautiful." My best friend Angela said from behind the desk as I walked over and sat next to her. Angela was my best friend, and worked with me. "How are the little babies."
"Good, it was a long morning. I'm just happy it's Friday. Mike is supposed to come and get them tonight, but I doubt that will be happening." I sighed.
"Here, appointments that need to be put in a few different calendars." she handed me a notepad. I read down the list of names : Volturi - Court at 4 , Stanford - Meeting at 6, Cullen - Meeting at 6. Wait, Cullen?
"Angela..." I trailed off
"Yes sweetie?" Angela said smiling at me.
"Edwards Back?" I asked. Everyone knew of the Cullen Clan. There was Dr. Cullen and his very stunning wife Esme Cullen, she owned a baby store in Port Angeles with her daughter Alice. Alice was one of the Cullen kids she was married to Jasper who was a very good lawyer here in Forks. But before Forks, Jasper worked in Chicago as well. Emmett, Alice's brother, was the size of a football player. Emmett coached the college football team at Washington University. Emmett was married to Rosalie, who was a retired model and now helps Esme and Alice run the baby store. Alice has two kids, and Rosalie has one.
Edward and I started dating four year ago. He's not the father of Blake but he is Maggie's father. Blake likes Edward more than his own dad, Mike. It's mostly because Mike seems to never keep his promises and Edward always has, since the day he came into our lives. Edward and I got married about two years ago, it was a small wedding with only family and a few friends. We kept it a secret as much as we could because Edward didn't want a lot of people knowing he was married. In his line of work he makes a lot of enemies and he doesn't want to risk an enemy finding out he has a family and them hurting us.
"Yeah Bell, he's back." she smiled. "He came back this morning when I was pulling in. He wanted to surprise you but he knew I wouldn't be able to keep his arrival a secret." Edward has been gone for almost two months on a case in Texas. We called and did video chat as much as we could but it still wasn't the same as having him here. I tossed the notepad on the desk and walked back to the desks filled with federal agents. That's when I saw him, standing next to his partner Felix. Felix saw me and tapped Edward's shoulder and told him to turn around. Just seeing him made me what to cry.
"Hey babe," Edward smiled. I ran forward and threw myself into his arms. "God I missed you." Just having Edward hold me brought tears to my eyes.
"I can't believe you're back," I cried as tears ran down my face. Edward pulled me into his office so we could have some privacy. I took his face in my hands and kissed him hard. "Why didn't you call me?"
"I wanted to surprise you." Edward said stroking my cheek "But Angela saw me and I knew she was going to spill the beans to you."
"The kids, god their going to be so excited." I wiped away my tears and smiled up at my tall husband. God, I loved him. "I can't believe you're home."
"I still haven't told my parents but I can believe Angela has texted Alice." he laughed. "I just want to jump in bed and spend the day with you, Mrs. Cullen."
"Maybe later, Mr. Cullen." I giggled kissing him one last time. "I have to get to work, but I'm getting Maggie at noon. I'll bring her back here to see you."
"I'm excited to see her too, and little Blake. How's he doing, did Mike pick him up two weeks ago?"
"Yeah, but he brought him back early. He's supposed to get him tonight but once he finds out that you're back he's not going to want to leave."
"I missed that little guy, but I do need to get back to work. I have to finish writing the report on what went down in Texas." Edward sighed kissing my forehead "I'll see you later alligator." I walked back to the front desk and sat down.
"Did you see him?" Angela asked smiling.
"Yeah," I sighed. "I can't believe he's back. I'm so happy right now, I can't stop smiling."
"Well, all this paperwork we have to do will probably stop the smiling." Angela said setting a pile of papers in front of me. "Enjoy."
Four hours later and two piles of paper work later I drove to go pick up Maggie. I stood outside my car as she ran forward and wrapped her arms around my leg. "Mommy, work?"
"Yeah, you're coming to work with me." I said picking her up and strapping her into her car seat "I have a surprise for you when we get to work."
"Yay! Mommy I want wam." Wam, was Maggie's stuffed lamb that she liked to carry around with her all the time. I made her keep it in the car when she went to school because I know she would lose it. Once we got to work I carried her inside and set her bag behind the desk.
"Hi Maggie," Angela said smiling "how was pre-school today?"
"We made Santa!" Maggie smiled hugging her lamb to her chest "Mommy what prize?"
"Oh, you're surprise." I smiled. I picked her up and carried her back to the offices. Standing just outside of his office was Edward, chatting away with Felix. I pointed to Edward and Maggie jumped out of my arms.
"Daddy!" Maggie cried as Edward picked her up and held her to his chest. "Daddy home!"
"Miss. Maggie, why aren't you the most beautiful girl I have ever seen." Edward said tickling her belly "I've missed you so much."
"You home forever, daddy?!" Maggie asked.
"For as long as I can be, I'm with you sweetie." Edward kissed the top of Maggie's head "You got so big, how old are you now?"
"Free." Maggie said holding up three fingers.
"Really? You look like you're twelve." Edward teased
"Daddy." Maggie giggled covering her mouth with her lamb , then she turned serious"Don't weave, again."
"Maggie," I said walking over and taking her from Edward "you can't say that. You know daddy has to leave sometimes."
"I'm going to be staying right here with you as long as I can, I promise." Edward said kissing Maggie's head . "I love you baby."
"I wuv you, daddy." I carried Maggie back to my desk and set her in my lap. "Mommy me have apple pwease." I dug around in my purse and pulled out slices of apples.
"Everything okay?" Angela asked looking at me as I opened the bag for Maggie.
"Yeah," I lied. To be honest, I didn't want Edward to leave again either.
"Then I was the last one up there and I spelled the word right." Blake said smiling at I set a piece of homemade pizza in front of him. "I won five pieces of candy."
"Wow, I'm very impressed." I told him as I gave food to Maggie. The front door opened and Edward walked into the kitchen. Blake was too busy eating his pizza to notice him.
"Now, is that my son Blake?" Edward said smiling. Blake stopped eating and his eyes turned wide as he smiled and turned around. "I think it is."
"Dad!" Blake yelled and threw himself into Edward's arms. "I can't believe you're back. I missed you so much."
"I've missed you to." Edward said bending down and hugging him "You and your sister have gotten so big."
"You're not leaving again, right?" Blake asked staring into Edward's eyes. Edward look up at me, Maggie and Blake did not like when Edward left us.
"I'm not going anywhere for a while." Edward said kissing the top of Blake's head. "Come on, finish eating." Edward grabbed a plate and joined us at the table. "What have I missed?"
"I won the a spelling contest today." Blake smiled.
"Very impressive." Edward said taking a bite of his pizza. "What about you, Bella?"
"Work." I said simply "Potty training Maggie." I looked over at Maggie as she shoved her face with pizza. "Slow down."
"Maggie still eats like a pig." Edward laughed "That hasn't changed."
"We missed you." I said smiling at him.
"I miss you too." Edward winked at me. Once we finished dinner I helped Blake pack his bags for his dad's and carried it down to the living room with him.
"Mommy, I don't wanna leave." Blake whispered to me as I cleaned up some of the dishes in the sink. "I wanna stay with you and dad."
"I know but you gotta go, Edward will still be here when you get back. I promise you." I told him ruffling his hair. There was a knock at the front door and Blake clung to my leg as I went to answer it. "Blake, come on."
"Bella." Mike said when I opened the door.
"You're late," I sighed handing him Blake's bag "by almost two hours."
"I had a meeting." Mike mumbled pulling out his blackberry "Ready to go, B?"
"I don't wanna go, I wanna stay with mommy and daddy." Blake said burying his face in my leg.
"What the fuck is he talking about?" Mike asked "Is your husband back? I've told you, Edward is not your dad."
"Mike, don't yell at him" I said rubbing Blake's back. Edward came up behind me carrying a sleepy Maggie.
"He needs to stop, you" Mike pointed at Edward "are not the father of my son." I looked at Mike and Edward. Edward stood tall at six four and Mike just looked small next to him standing at five nine. But I couldn't talk, I was only five-five.
"Maybe it's the fact that I act like more of a father to him than you." Edward said. Mike's face turned red and he grabbed Blake by the arm and pulled him over to him.
"Michael!" I yelled when I saw tears form in Blake's eyes "Be gentle with him."
"Shut up, Bella." Michael yelled back. I heard Edward growl from the back, he hated Mike. "Don't even start, Cullen."
"Get off my property, now." Edward said. I bent down and kissed Blake's tear stained cheeks.
"I promise Edward is going to be here when you get back, okay? Call me if anything happens or if you just want to come home." I told him.
"Okay, I love you." Blake said as Mike picked him up and carried him off to his car. I closed the door and leaned back against it. "I need full custody."
"I know, babe." Edward said kissing my head "I told you, Jasper is just waiting for you to call him. He'll do it for free."
"I don't want him to do it for free," I sighed "I don't want your family to think I married you for your money."
"Gold-digger." Edward laughed. I smiled and kissed him. "I'll go put this little one to bed and meet you in the living room." I went and spread out on our big couch and got comfortable. When Edward came back he draped an arm around me. "Hey baby."
"Don't leave anymore." I said snuggling up next to him and resting my head on his chest. "It's so hard taking care of both of them without you."
"I know Bella, and I'm trying my best to stay here as long as I can." Edward kissed the top of my head. "Has Mike been this difficult while I was gone?"
"Yeah, but it was just worse today because Blake didn't want to leave. He usually just leave's but he loves you, Edward."
"I know, I just want him to be with us all the time. I don't like you even being around him." he sighed. "We have dinner at my parents tomorrow."
"Really? So I'm guessing you finally told them of your return?" I laughed.
"Well Angela told Alice, who told my whole family. My mom called me at work and yelled at me for not telling her."
"I assumed that."
"Alright Mrs. Cullen," Edward said standing and picking me up "let's go to bed.
"Maggie, stop trying to ride the dog." I told Maggie as she tried to ride Esme and Carlisle's big golden retriever.
"You're kid's got issues." Emmett laughed as he bounced his one year old son, Royce on his lap.
"Hey that's my baby you're talking about." I scolded him. "Rosalie control your husband."
"I can't, that's the problem." She laughed as she sat down next to him "He never seems to listen to me either."
"Get back here you two!" Alice yelled at her six year old twins Luke and Bryan ran into the living room. "You made a huge mess in the play room, go clean it up. Now."
"Yes ma'am." he said at the same time and slowly walked upstairs to the play room.
"Such a handful," Alice mumbled as she fell on the couch next to me. "Where the hell is Jasper and Edward?"
"They said they had to go to the store and they'd be right back." I yawned.
"Bella, how is Blake. I'm so sad he couldn't join us tonight." Esme said sitting in the chair across from me. Carlisle had to work tonight and wouldn't be joining us.
"Good, he's with his dad. He didn't want to go with him yesterday because Edward was home, it was heartbreaking to let him go." I told her "It just sucks because I know Mike probably isn't paying any attention to Blake right now."
"You know Jasper said he would help you," Alice nudged me.
"I would want to pay him, I don't want him doing it for free. Once I get a little more money I can hire him." I told her.
"Bella you're family, you don't need to pay Jasper." Rosalie said "You've been with us for what-four years-you need to realize it's okay to ask for help."
"Yeah, and if you don't want Jasper to help I'll just beat the shit out of him." Emmett laughed. Rosalie gasped and took Royce from Emmett. I looked at Maggie as she covered her ears and stared at Emmett.
"Uncle Emmy, you say bad word." Maggie said looking at him "You pay me."
"What?" Emmett asked looking at Maggie like she had two head. "I'm not paying you." Maggie walked over and whispered into my ear.
"He pay woller." Maggie whispered.
"Emmett you have to pay Maggie a dollar for swearing." I told him "It's a rule." Emmett looked at Rosalie for help but she agreed with me. Emmett really did need to stop swearing.
"Whatever," Emmett huffed and pulled a dollar out of his wallet and handed it to Maggie. "you only like me for my money."
"No Uncle Emmy, I wuv you." Maggie said smiling. Emmett picked her up and kissed her.
"And no, Emmett. I don't need you beating anyone up. I'll figure this out." I told everyone. Edward and Jasper finally arrived home with some food and games. Esme went into the kitchen to cook and took Luke and Bryan along with her for help.
"Hey," Edward said walking over and kissing me "what's going on?"
"Just chatting about Bella's other baby daddy." Alice said smiling as Jasper sat down with her. "Any suggestions on what should be done?"
"He need's his ass kicked." Edward said sitting down next to me. Maggie was on his as soon as the word came out of his mouth.
"Woller daddy." Maggie said smiling holding out her hand. Edward looked at her and pulled out a dollar. Maggie handed both her dollars to me "Don't wet them take 'em."
"I won't." I said placing the money in my purse. "You two need to watch your mouth or you'll be broke by next month."
"I forgot about the swear jar." Edward grumbled "I should get my dollar back because I was gone."
"Nope," I said kissing his cheek. "Now can we please stop talking about Mike?" My purse starting ringing and I dug out my iPhone. "Yes, Mike." I said after seeing the caller ID.
"Uh, we have a little bit of an issue." Mike said through the phone "We're at the hospital."
"What do you mean you're at the hospital." I said reaching for my coat and purse. "What happened? What did you do?"
"Shut up for a second Bella, I didn't do anything. He slipped when he was playing on the steps. I told him to stop and he didn't listen."
"Bullshit, Mike." I said and Edward grabbed me by my shoulders to slow me down. "I'll be there as soon as I can." I disconnected the call.
"Blake's at the hospital." I told Edward. He took my hands and it's not till then that I noticed they were shaking.
"I'm going to drive," Edward said kissing my forehead.
"We'll watch Maggie," Rosalie said "call us to keep us updated." I thanked them and got into the car with Edward. I needed to get to my baby.
