Just when I had finally thought life was perfect. That everything would be ok, and I would be content living with my family, forever. Everything began to crumble from under my feet. Of course I wouldn't be free of my curse to putting myself, and everyone I loved in danger, even though I was now turned into a vampire.
In fact, things are worse, much worse.
It all was up to me now, Edward, Nessie, Jacob, everyone, they were counting on me. And if I didn't make the right choice, this would truly be the end. The end of everything, death stared coldly at me, trapping me in it's depths of black nothingness.
"Make you're choice Bella," The very sound of his voice caused a wave of shills to roll down my spine in a manner of disgust, and fear.
My hand trembled as I reached out. I held my breath, and with one last look at Edward's fear stricken face, I sealed our fate forever.
I watched closely up towards the sky, taking in the small raindrops that fell freely from above; each drop having its own unique shape, but all tapping the glass of the window with light thuds.
It had been a usual day, the good old Fork's daily rain showers, along with the fog rolling along the bottom of the sky, just touching the very tops of the waters; Creeping along as though it was floating.
As usual as this day had been, I truly couldn't shake the feeling that was pulling at the pit of my stomach. The uncomfortable clenching of my insides wasn't something that I was used to, now that I was a vampire. There was really only thing I felt, and that was thirst. Even now, the stinging in my throat was enough to sidetrack my attention from the twisting in my stomach.
It had been a while since our last hunt, Carlisle was trying to gradually eliminate us from public eye, so when we decide to leave, hardly anyone would notice.
I hated the idea of leaving, more and more as the conversation got brought up, really the only thing that was keeping us here so long, was Jacob.
His imprint on Nessie, we all knew this was going to be a hard situation, and we did really need to figure something out before people would start getting suspicious. That was the last thing I wanted. I didn't want Nessie in danger like she had been ever again. I would make sure of this. She would be protected.
"Bella, are you even paying attention,"
At the sound of Alice's annoyed voice I turned my head quickly to refocus my attention back on her petite pixie form.
"Um, yeah, of course I was,"
Her eyes narrowed, her eye brow lifting up ever so slightly.
"Really, then you know what dress I'm talking about," She said, holding up two different dresses in her hands, looking at me with a suspicious look.
Quickly I analyzed both dresses; thinking for only half a second, deliberating on which dress was the showiest, and decided to pick that one. The light green satin dress, with the wild fringe at the bottom, or the strapless navy blue sundress that I wear when Edward and I are having out alone time out in our meadow.
"The green one," I stated with a high boost of confidence, smirking when I saw her shocked face.
"So you actually where paying attention, good girl,"
I snorted lightly before making me way over to her from my place at the window.
"You could have just looked forward into the future to see that I was paying attention," I said with a knowing smile.
She gave me a sour look at that, and huffed, turning to bounce back into my close to return the sundress.
"You know I can't with the dog so close by, it's like looking through a mud puddle," She said shaking her head, as she returned, handing me the green dress.
I sighed for a second, before holding the dress up to examine it.
"Is this all really necessary?"
"Of course it is, it's; don't you want to look nice for you're daughter's first birthday?"
"Yes, but don't you think a dress is just a bit to formal for a child's birthday?" I said, and began to slide the dress on me.
I had to admit, it was truly a beautiful dress. It was the kind of dress that only a Cullen could say they had in their closet. What was even better about the dress was the fact that it fit me perfectly. It hugged my waist, and draped around my body in a wave of elegance, and power. Both the things I gained when I was turned.
"No way, this is a Cullen kid we are talking about here, it's going to be big, I invited all our friends, the only ones I'm not to sure who is coming is the Amazon coven,"
I shook my head at Alice.
It would be my mission to make this day the most special day in the world for my little baby girl.
"It's just so hard to believe how much she has grown," I said with a sad smile.
Alice gave me a warm hug.
"I know, she's really something special,"
She was wasn't she?
Every day, I was reminded of how lucky I was to have her in my life. She was my whole world. Her and Edward.
At the thought of Edward my eyes widened. Quickly I moved to the window, peering out to see him walking towards the house with Emmett. The both of them carrying large bags, balloons, and a handful of fallen tree limbs, it was obvious that they were still getting the back yard decorated for the party.
I missed Edward so badly, and I wanted to see him and Nessie soon. I was beginning to feel anxious without knowing if the two of them where ok. Even though I knew they would be.
Nessie was with Esme, and Carlisle, helping them over at the Cullen house. And I was stuck here with Alice to greet the guests as they arrived. Emmett and Edward were setting up the table's gifts, and refreshments, While Jasper and Rosalie was out hunting.
"When will people start coming?" I wondered, turning to look back at Alice; who already was changed into a beautiful black silk dress.
"In a matter of Five minutes the Denali's will be here," She chirped, and with a tug she had my arm and was pulling me out of my room. "Charlie and Sue will be here within a minute," She said stopping me at the door. "And please, relax; Edward will be done soon,"
I gave her a look, shaking my head at her once more at her bubbly smile.
She knew I was missing Edward, was it really that obvious?
Before I could voice my question; a knock on the door made me freeze. It was Charlie and Sue.
I knew that I had a very good control over myself, and with a bit of effort… the pain was almost completely bearable, but this would never stop me from being afraid of accidentally hurting Charlie.
"Ready?" Alice said looking pointedly at me as her hand fell onto the door knob, just pausing for that second until I gave her a nod.
As the door opened I felt the wind blowing the scent of blood to my face, assaulting my senses, and lighting my throat on fire.
I made no move to react to the pain of the flames biting my throat raw.
"Hey Alice, nice to see you," Charlie said with an easy smile before stepping in, Sue one step behind him, her hand in his.
"Glad you could make it Charlie," Alice said with a bright smile, and nodded to me.
I couldn't help but smile as Charlie's eyes moved to me. He instantly moved to me, and pulled me into a hug.
Concentrate, don't breathe, just act limp.
"Hey dad," I spoke hugging him gently, the flames in my throat burning hotter, nearly making it impossible to move.
It was hard, but I truly was getting better. It has just be so long since I've been around a human, I almost forgot how pain it is.
"Hey Bells, how are you doing," Charlie spoke after letting me go, and returning his hand to Sue with a smile.
I noticed Sue's smile as she stuck close to Charlie, seeming content, and just happy to be were he was. This was all I had ever wanted for Charlie.
"I've been great," I nodded sharing the smile.
"Good to hear,"
"Seth and Leah should be coming by soon as well," Sue spoke up almost shyly.
"Excellent," Alice smiled, and took her place back at the front door.
That was my cue to take the guests out to where the party was actually going to be held. This was in the back yard, where Edward and Emmett had been setting up.
I couldn't help but feel a bit excited; I would finally get a good view of Edward. I had barely gotten to see him all day. I knew it was a bit foolish, he was my husband after all, but it was still like the day we had first met. I loved him so much.
The back yard, it looked amazing. The trees sat in a rainbow of gold and light purple streamers. Tables were set up in a half circle, filled with all kinds of foods that Esme and I prepared last night, along with a few coolers of beer, and other alcohol. Wooden tables went in rows across the yard, crafted perfectly smooth, and decorated specially for Nessie. Millions of pure white roses, and light pink tulips hung in a canopy of vines that woven around the tree limbs that hovered over each of the tables.
It was like walking into a dream.
They truly had done an amazing job, but who was I kidding, of course they did, I had no doubt in my mind it was going to be breath-taking.
"Wow, they sure do know how to go all out… but I should of seen that coming after their wedding," I heard Charlie whisper to Sue.
She chuckled quietly, and nodded in agreement as she to, looked around at the beauty.
"Hey, it's the chief," Emmett's loud booming voice sounded.
We all turned to see him and Edward heading towards us.
I rolled my eyes at that for just a moment, before completely focusing my attention to Edward's beautiful eyes peering into mine.
I smiled as he made it to me, capturing me into his arms.
Now I felt like I could breathe again. It was like a whole part of me had been dead, and now was brought back to life.
"Bella," His voice was like sweet silk against my skin as he spoke my name. Shivers rolled down my spine.
"You look, so beautiful," He spoke, his fingers brushing a strand of hair from my face as he watched me, his other hand rubbing circle across my back.
I couldn't hold back my smile at his words.
It didn't matter what I thought about myself, or how the entire world viewed me as. It was only Edward; that really knew how to make me feel like I really was pretty. Like I was somebody worthy of this man.
Never, would I understand what I did to deserve such a wonderful life, with an amazing husband, daughter, and family that I loved.
Nothing could ever ruin this. Not now. Not ever again.
