"…Let the skyfall, when it crumbles we will stand tall. Face it all together…"
I'm a grown man, and yet, I was being forced to sit down and attempt to play nice. The night after the party Uncle Luther wanted us all to get right down to business. Right now, I was getting ready to meet with Garrett and his team. Sitting back in my chair, I thought about what Uncle Luther said about why I needed to rid this bad blood between Garrett's team and our team.
I wasn't completely against it, but I sure as hell didn't want to have to be in the same room as Gianna. The woman was a fucking psycho, and I was sure if she could, she would lock me in her basement.
Uncle Luther pointed out though, that the last thing we needed right now was a feud with them as well as the ones we already had with the FEDs and the Volturi's.
The entire family would be here as well, but I knew it wouldn't stop Gianna from saying whatever the hell she wanted to say. Bella sat on the armrest of my chair, with my arm draped around her waist.
When Gianna walked into the room, her eyes seemed to zero in on us. I felt the moment Bella's body stiffened as she shifted on the armrest. I was hoping she didn't let Gianna get to her and lose her shit. I had a feeling Uncle Luther was not in the mood for anyone's shit today. I rubbed my hand over her thigh silently trying to get her to chill out. Everyone came and took their seats. Bree closed the conference room door behind the last person, and then took her seat next to Emmett. Uncle Luther stood up from his chair with help from Eleazar.
"We all know why I called this meeting, so we will not waste time with me having to explain why," he began looking around the room. Everyone was silent as we all sat in the conference room. Gianna's eyes never seemed to leave from Bella's and my direction.
I've known Gianna a long time and I knew she was trying to intimidate Bella. She wanted to scare her off, but what she kept getting wrong was that Bella was nothing like the other women I've been with in the past.
Bella was fully capable of taking care of herself, as she often liked to remind me.
"If that bitch keeps looking over here, I'm going to throw one of my knives right between her eyes," Bella whispered. I smiled while Alice and Jasper laughed having heard her, too. Gianna's eyes seemed to narrow more as if she knew we talking about her.
"Garrett, you know that we consider you associates. You have completed many jobs for me that my family would have felt uncomfortable completing," Uncle Luther said looking over at him. Garrett's team didn't exactly share the same morals when it came to who they killed.
Uncle Luther sometimes had jobs he knew we wouldn't want so he called Garrett instead.
"I still consider all of you close friends of ours," Garrett said, looking at everyone in the room with a smile on his face. I could tell he wanted to say something else.
"I hear a but coming," Tanya said from her seat next to Liam. Royce glared over at the two of them and I watched Liam's arm tighten around Tanya. Garrett looked at her, then back over at me and continued.
"But…" Garrett stressed and Tanya smiled. She always liked being right. "…Gianna is like a sister to me and Edward fucked up when he…"
"…you hold that thought," Grandma Cullen said cutting him off. "My grandson was no saint in the matter when it came to Gianna, we all know that, but you will not make it out as if he was the only one who did something wrong. She set herself up to be hurt, and now wants to play the victim because he has moved on with someone he actually wants to be with," Grandma Cullen continued. She smirked over at Bella and me.
"Don't talk about me like I'm not sitting here," Gianna snapped. Earning a few glares from everyone else in the room.
"I know you are in the room; I just don't give a damn," Grandma Cullen retorted glaring at her. Needless to say Grandma Cullen didn't like Gianna because there was nothing she hated more than a liar.
"Ladies, this is no way to solve the issue at hand," Uncle Luther said getting their attention.
"Uncle Luther, I get what you are trying to do, but this not our issue to solve. This is between Gianna and Edward. As long as she chooses to be bitter about it, it will never change," Alice explained causing Gianna to glare over at her now.
"It is everyone's issue when it is causing a rift between everyone. Garrett and his team used to be a team we could rely on, now we have this issue…" Alistair added.
"Maybe if Edward would have just kept his dick in his pants, this wouldn't be a problem," Kate snapped looking at me as if I had fucked her over personally.
"Oh please! Gianna practically threw her pussy at Edward and we all know it!" Tanya snapped right back. I felt Bella flinch and I knew it was from the thought of me being with Gianna. "We all told her that Edward was not the relationship type, but no she just had to continue with her little excursion on him, and now want all of us to feel bad for her? Fuck that—she should have kept her fucking legs closed, then her pride wouldn't have been hurt," Tanya continued. I saw the smiles on the faces of all the women in my family.
"Fuck you, Tanya! You're just pissed I got to fuck him before you did!" Gianna yelled at her. Tanya went to get up from her seat but Liam stopped her.
"I never wanted to fuck Edward, he has always been a brother to me. It was you that wanted to fuck the guy you called brother?" Tanya spat, causing everyone to look shocked as we looked over at Garrett. "Oh, I'm sorry, I guess you didn't tell Kate you've plotted to fuck her husband," Tanya replied with a smirk on her face.
"What the hell is she talking about?" Kate asked looking at Gianna and then Garrett.
"Babe, I swear nothing happened," Garrett tried to assure her.
"Was something getting ready to happen?" Kate asked looking at Gianna. I knew we were about to get completely off track now because once Kate was pissed about something, there was no stopping her.
"She was drunk and pissed about Edward. It was nothing…" Garrett tried to explain. I looked up at Bella and saw that she was looking at me.
"Okay, we are getting off track here," Esme said trying to get everyone focused on why we were here.
"No. I am sitting here trying to defend this bitch, and find out that you tried to fuck my husband?" Kate yelled glaring at Gianna now.
"Nothing happened; he's hopelessly devoted to you," Gianna replied with a flag of her hand, as if it was no big deal she tried to sleep with her best friend's husband. "Even when I was dressed in practically nothing right in front of him," she mumbled, and then Kate slapped the shit out of her. Garrett quickly pulled Kate back and pushed Gianna back when she tried to hit Kate.
"That bitch just hit me!" Gianna yelled pointing at Kate.
"You're lucky that's all I did!" Kate yelled over Garrett's shoulder.
"This is extremely entertaining," Bella whispered into my ear and I laughed agreeing with her. Gianna looked over at us and then Garrett.
"Garrett, move. Now," Gianna told him with her hand reaching behind her back. Quickly, everyone else in the room put their hands on their guns, Bella pulling one of her knives out.
"Fuck no, Gi. I'm not dealing with your shit anymore," Garrett yelled at her.
"After everything we've been through together. I'm your sister…"
"Now you want to use the sister card after admitting to trying to fuck him? You're a nasty bitch," Kate snapped trying to push around Garrett. He pushed her back and gave Gianna a warning look when she stepped closer to him.
"You're seriously going to pick that bitch over me, too," she asked looking at Garrett.
"What kind of question is that, Gi? Of course I'm picking Kate over you, she's my wife!" Garrett yelled at her. "I didn't tell her about your little stunt because I gave you the benefit of the doubt," he continued looking pissed off.
"Everyone needs to calm down," Renee said trying to be the peacemaker here. There was no way that was going to work now. Everyone was on edge.
"No, fuck this shit! I am tired of doing what other people say. I stuck around because I love Garrett and I belong with Edward not that little bitch," she snapped pointing at Bella when she said little bitch. Bella quickly stood up and I stood up as well knowing it was going to get even worse if Gianna kept talking. "I'm done kissing all of your asses like you're royalty or some shit. I am Gianna Miller—I don't' take orders from no one," Gianna ranted on and I saw the glare that formed on Uncle Luther's face from her words.
"Gianna, I think it's time for you to leave. We've all been associates a long time and despite Garrett's recent anger with you, I know he considers you family. So I will let you live—for now," Uncle Luther told her.
"I'm the fuck out of here, too. You should do the same, Garrett. I told you before they would never see us as family no matter how many favors or jobs you did for them," Royce said, standing up from his seat.
"I'll see both of you out then," Liam said with a smile on his face. I was sure he still wanted a piece of Royce.
"I'll go with you," Stefan added with an evil grin. We watched as they left the room. Uncle Luther inhaled a deep breath shaking his head. I watched the way he started rubbing his chest. Eleazar whispered into his ear and Uncle Luther nodded to whatever Eleazar asked.
"Uncle Luther, are you all right?" Carlisle asked taking the words right out of my mouth.
"Yes, just a little chest pain," he said pressing his thumb into his chest. Eleazar tapped Uncle Luther's shoulder before leaving the room.
"Luther, do you have something to tell us?" Grandma Cullen asked him.
"Nothing to worry about sister, let's continue," he replied dismissing any discussion regarding him. "I would like to hope that other than those two, we have an alliance with the rest of you?" Uncle Luther asked looking at Garrett, Kate and the rest who were still here. They all nodded.
"When we needed your help, you helped us, we owe all of you," Riley said, the rest of them agreeing. A while back Garrett and his team ran into some serious trouble with the law. To make a long story short, if it wasn't for my family, they would all be in jail somewhere.
Uncle Luther seemed satisfied with that news. He went on to explain to them our current situation with Aro. They all agreed to help us wherever we would need them. He started to go over the plan.
"Shouldn't we wait for everyone else to return?" Alistair asked seeing that he hated having to repeat himself or hear the same story twice.
"I'll inform them when they all return," Uncle Luther said, and then he continued with the plan he wanted to execute against Aro, as well as the dirty FEDs he had in his pocket.
I was sick and tired of all of them. I couldn't wait to be rid of the people I called my family. Some fucking family they were. Thankfully, I was able to get away to make the phone calls I needed to make.
Pulling out my disposable phone I made my first phone call.
"About time you've called? What news have you?" Aro voiced roared through the phone.
"You should contact Gianna and Royce," I told him.
"Why are they any significance to me?"
"Because they are no longer friends of the family. They both made it clear they don't give a fuck about this fucked-up family. You could probably get them to help you, Gianna more than anyone," I replied imagining the grin on his face.
"This could be useful to me; what about what we talked about a few nights ago at Providence?" he asked.
"If I act now, the family will get suspicious; they're not idiots, Aro. You should know that better than anyone."
"And yet they do not realize you are working against them," he replied back.
"They would never think I would do something like this; they have no reason to question my loyalty to them. We have trust in our family unlike your fucked-up family."
"Why have you decided to turn your back on your precious family then?" he asked, and I almost replied by saying they were no family of mine, but he didn't need to know that.
"That's not your concern. I'll take care of him, you just make sure to have everyone else here when I call," I replied, and then I hung up the phone. I pinched the bridge of my nose feeling irritated with this entire damn situation.
Next, I called William Black. What Aro didn't know was that while I was using him to rid me of my so called family, I was working with Black to take him out as well.
Why go through all of this?
I have my reasons.
"I thought maybe you'd changed your mind," William said into the phone.
"No, I haven't changed my mind. It just isn't easy to get away."
"Well then remember, our offer still stands."
"I'm aware of that. Now, the reason why I called is because in a few days I need a huge distraction."
"What sort of distraction?"
"Why my son?"
"Because he's the perfect distraction. I promise your precious pride and joy will not be harmed," I informed him.
"Fine, just tell me when and where," he replied. I told him what I would need from him and that it needed to be real, because no one in the family would fall for it otherwise. After I finished with the phone call I finally headed back to the conference room.
Everyone returned back to the conference room at the same time, and Uncle Luther went over the plan again. I smiled at how annoyed Alistair seemed to be having to hear the story twice.
After he finished everyone left to go home. Uncle Luther and Eleazar were staying in Charlie and Renee's condo, since Alistair, Stefan and Stefan's wife Sarah were staying at Carlisle and Esme's condo.
"I can't wait until all of this is over," Bella said placing her head on my shoulder as we rode up the elevator to the penthouse.
"When it is, I'm going to take you to my house in Brazil," I informed her. She stood up straight and looked at me with a smile on her face.
"You have a house in Brazil?"
"Yes, you keep doing that."
"Doing what?" I asked just as the elevator bell rung alerting our arrival to the tenth floor.
"Surprising me," she answered with a smile on her face as she walked off of the elevator. I rushed behind her wrapping my arms around her waist and pulling her back against me.
"Then we're even," I whispered into her ear still holding her as we walked to the front door and opening it.
"You're turning into one of those cheesy boyfriends," she teased, and I slapped her on her ass causing her to scream.
"Do you want me to go back to being an ass?" I whispered against her ear now. She turned in my arms looking up at me.
"I don't know, I liked you that way sometimes," she replied and I shook my head.
"I'll remember you said that the next time I piss you off."
"Hmm... good point."
"Though making up is worth the fighting, wouldn't you agree?" I asked gripping her ass and pressing her into me. She grinned looking up at me and I lowered my head taking her mouth.
She moaned surrendering me herself to me like she usually does. I slipped my hand under her shirt and felt her body shiver.
"Don't tease me," she moaned.
"Last I checked the only tease in this relationship is you," I replied, just as I cupped her right tit in my hand. I pushed her bra aside and started to tease her nipple. Her breathing changed, I always loved the way her entire body reacted to me.
I kissed her harder gripping her tit in my hand a little tighter than before.
"Shower…" I heard her breathe out against my mouth.
"What?" I breathed back rocking my hardening dick into her soft perfect body. "I want you to fuck me in the shower," she explained. I released her breast from my hand and gripped her ass in my hand. I picked her up, her legs wrapping around my waist.
I started to head toward the bathroom when there was a knock on the front door. We both groaned our protest at the interruption.
"Dammit—I swear they know when we're getting ready to fuck," Bella said. I gave her a quick kiss and then lowered her to the floor. Walking over I opened the front door. I was surprised to see Emmett standing on the other side.
"What's up, Em?" I asked with a questioning brow.
"I need to talk to you man," he said, and I stepped aside so that he could come in. I shut the door behind him and he looked from me to Bella. "Did I interrupt?" he asked looking at the both of us.
"Only me getting laid, but hey it's no big deal," Bella replied sarcastically causing me to laugh. Emmett didn't even smile so I knew something was bothering him.
"What's up, Em?" I asked again. He ran his fingers through his hair and looked at me. I've never seen him this upset about something.
"I'm going to go take a shower and leave you two to talk," Bella said. I knew she was only trying to give us some privacy seeing that Emmett looked like he was about to freak out from something.
"Don't start without me," I told her and she smiled at me.
"I might have to start, but I won't finish without you," she teased. I grinned swatting her on the ass before she headed toward the bathroom. I turned my attention back to Emmett now.
"Okay, what the hell is wrong with you?" I asked him walking over to the bar and pouring both of us a drink.
"Man, I'm in deep shit…" he said with a shake of his head. I walked over to him with a glass.
"Do I need to get my gun?" I asked handing him his drink.
"I'm not in that kind of trouble. That kind of trouble I can handle…"
"Then what kind of trouble are you in?" I asked taking a sip from my glass. He downed his drink and then looked at me.
"Rose is pregnant."
"WHAT!" I roared, shattering the glass in my hand.
"What's wrong?" I heard Bella ask. I turned around to see her standing in the room in nothing but a towel.
"Bella, go put some fucking clothes on," I barked at her.
"Your hand is bleeding," she said ignoring me and walking towards the kitchen. She quickly came back with a wet rag and took my hand starting to clean the glass from it.
"Emmett can't even see anything. You have a huge damn gash in your hand. I need to stop the bleeding," she replied cutting me off. I glared over at Emmett. He wouldn't make eye contact with me. "Do either of you want to tell me what the hell just happened?" Bella asked looking between the both of us as she started to wrap my hand in the dry rag.
"You're going to get rid of it aren't you?" I asked Emmett ignoring Bella's question.
"What? No, I'm not going to get rid of it. That's my fucking baby…" he barked at me.
"Baby?" I heard Bella question.
"You can't trust Rose and you're going to let her have your kid?"
"I can trust her—it's all of you who have a fucking problem trusting her," he snapped back at me. "All of you gave Grandma Cullen your opinions of her before she even met my Rose and now…"
"…don't blame us for Grandma Cullen not accepting the bitch."
"Watch who the fuck you're talking about, Edward," he barked stepping toward me with his fist balled up.
"Okay, both of you need to chill the hell out, now…" Bella said standing between the both of us. We stood there looking at each other, and then Emmett shook his head.
"I came to talk to you because you're my brother, but you can't seem to get your fucking almighty head out of your own ass to realize that I'm fucking happy with her. I didn't say shit when you brought Bella here…"
"We can trust Bella!"
"You didn't know that shit when you brought her here, but that didn't stop you, did it? I'm the fuck out of here…" he said turning and leaving the penthouse without another word. Bella stood in front of me.
"He got Rose pregnant?" she asked. I inhaled a deep breath and nodded. "Esme and Grandma Cullen are going to kill him," she pointed out, again I only nodded in agreement.
A lot happened this chapter didn't it? Who do you think the Unknown POV was? What about Rose's pregnancy? How much trouble do you think Gianna will be?
Because of the holiday season, and that I would like to spend it with family that has come from out of town, I will not be posting a new update until after the new year. I promise to be back on January 3!
I know this may upset some of you, but my family comes first as I hope all of you spend the holiday's with your loved ones!
Happy Holiday's to all of you!
