Chapter 25 - A.M.

2:45 A.M.

"He'll come back, don't worry." Rose told Alice as she sat with her in the room they had originally all planned on sharing.

"I know I should be mad and I am but he's never NEVER looked at me like that. Like he was so sad and disappointed." Alice sniffled.

"It will be ok. Come on, try and get some sleep." Rose stood up trying to get Alice to go lay in on one of the beds.

"I can't sleep. I'm too worried." Alice told her.

"Well, at least try." Bella walked over and pulled Alice by her hand. Alice followed defeatedly.

Rose, Bella, and Alice decided to share the original room as it had two beds, while Edward and Jasper took the room Jasper had reserved.


3:05 A.M.

"So anything you want to get off your chest?" Jasper asked Edward. They were each laying on a couch. Neither had felt like taking the bed.

"About?" Edward asked, staring up at the ceiling.

"Me and Aly." Jasper questioned.

"No. Not really." Edward sat up and looked over at Jasper. "I can't pull the brother card when I've barely had it. It's not my place. I'm not Emmett. That role is reserved for him" Edward answered.

"So then you're fine with it?" Jasper by now had sat up as well.

"I don't want to see it you know. What Emmett saw..." Edward shuddered. "But other than that, yeah whatever. You seem like you like her a lot, and you've helped me before so..."

"Thanks." Jasper stood up and went to look out a window. "You think he's ok?"

"I think so. He just needed space you know. Like I said, I can't understand what maybe he is going through with Alice but I can imagine I'd be pissed off. Alice isn't a little girl anymore so she's gonna do... stuff... but I can see that being a shock. Fuck, even though I don't have the right to blow up on you since I just met Alice some weeks ago, if I had seen it, shit I might have hit you too." Edward confessed.

"You do, you know?" Jasper looked back at him.

"Do what?" Edward asked.

"You have the right to be pissed. Even though you just met, you're still her brother. Regardless of how long you've known her, you've always been her brother." Jasper said sitting back down on his couch.

Edward didn't respond. He just pondered Jasper's comment. He had always been Alice's brother, Emmett's too. It was an odd thing to think about. He knew his mom did what she thought was best but sometimes he wondered if maybe "sharing" like she had put it, might not have been so bad. But then he'd not have had his dad, Edward Sr. It was a no win situation. Either choice, he'd have lost something.


4:12 A.M.

Oomf! Thud!

Edward awoke to sounds coming from what sounded like outside the room. He looked over and saw Jasper was asleep. He got up slowly picking up... a vase.

Fucking vases. Edward thought as he moved over to the door. He placed his ear against the door trying to listen.


Edward heard noises of someone uncomfortable in the hall. He slowly opened the door and looked out.

"Emmett." Edward quickly placed the vase down back in the room and hurried over to him.

"I didn't know what rooooom to go to." Emmett seemed a bit off.

"Are you drunk?" Edward asked grabbing him and trying to pull him up.

"Ah, shtop!" Emmett pushed him away, grabbing his side a bit. Fucking crackely ribs!

"Then get the fuck up yourself." Edward hissed at him. He had a long day and was getting cranky. He had got beat up, broke up a fight, learned Alice was... doing stuff... and to top it off Bella saw him looking weak. Fuck.

"Where's she?" Emmett said slurring, barely making any sense.

"The girls are back in our room. I went to bunk with Jasper." Edward leaned against the wall.

"Sooo you bessht buddies now with Assper." Emmett pulled himself up.

Edward rolled his eyes. "Come on." He lead Emmett back to his and Jasper's room but maneuvered him straight to the bedroom.

"Go to sleep." He let Emmett stumble onto the bed. Emmett continued to mumble incoherent shit as he drifted off to sleep.

"Like father like son," Edward muttered walking out and closing the door behind him. He decided to keep shit as calm as he could by pushing over the couch in front of the door and then laying down on it. "Get out of that room now fucker." Edward grinned falling to sleep.


5:10 A.M.




"Ugh..." Edward groaned getting up from the couch walking over to the door zombie like.

"Who the fuck..." Edward opened the door.

"Hey." Crap! He's not wearing a shirt! God... he looks...


"Bella." Edward stood up straighter.

"Did I wake you?" she asked nervously.

"No, no. Don't worry about it." Liar.

"Can we talk?" she asked.

"Sure, give me a sec." Edward ducked back into the room and came out a minute later with his shoes on tossing on a muscle shirt. He closed the door behind him and they started to walk down the hall.

Shit... I wonder what she wants. Edward thought looking her over. She looks cute in those. Edward thought eyeing her lacy pajama pants.

"So um, did Emmett ever come back?" Bella started with some small talk.

"Yeah, earlier. He was drunk." Edward ran his hand through his hair.

Fuck, he's so hot. "Uh... about earlier... outside." She bit her bottom lip.

Fuck... she looks hot when she does that. Edward closed his eyes for a second trying to clear his mind.

"Edward?" she asked.

"Hmm?" He looked at her lost for a sec.

"What was that about earlier?" she repeated her question.

Edward groaned.

He sounds so... mmm... Bella thought to herself.

"Please, can you let that go? You don't want to get involved with that. It's nothing to worry about." Edward told her.

She turned and stood in front of him, reaching out and took a hold of his chin. Edward's eyes met hers. Bella felt like he was looking through her.

"Those bruises don't seem like nothing." She said softly. Why do I care?

Edward didn't speak, he just stared at her. She's so beautiful... no... no... Edward pulled back and grabbed her hand.

"Just drop it! Don't say anything you understand?!" Edward held her by her wrist.

Bella jumped back and pulled her wrist from his grip. Edward realized he'd frightened her.

Good. Maybe that will make her stay way. I'm not good for her.

"I won't say anything." Bella tried to hold back her tears that were threatening to spill. "I won't bother you anymore." She took off back down the hall to the room she was sharing with the girls.

Edward just stood there and watched her go... Don't bother with me. I'm not good enough.


"UGH!" Bella slammed the door to their room. "What a complete asshole!"

"Who? And stop slamming things damn it." Rose said walking out of her room.

"Edward." Bella replied quickly as if a reflex. Crap.

"Edward, huh? Is that where you ran off to?" Rose smirked.

"I thought I heard Emmett earlier... I went to go check if he had come back." Bella lied.

"Did he?" Rose looked sad for a moment.

"Yeah. Edward said he got back earlier." Bella curled up on the couch.

Rose sighed and went over to Bella. "I'm not stupid Bella. Earlier today you helped Edward. Then you ran after him, you said his name, not Aly's when she was screaming. I saw how you looked at him all night."

Bella closed her eyes tight. I'm not gonna cry.

"Look Bella, I get it. Edward's good looking. But he's not all here you know. He's been through a lot and I don't want you to get hurt." Rose moved Bella's hair out of her face.

"I don't like him." Liar.

Rose sighed. "I'm gonna try and get some more sleep. You should too." Rose told her before going back to the room. She'd deal with Emmett later...

Author Note: Hmm, what seem's to be going on there with Edward and Bella? What's Rose gonna tell Emmett? What about Emmett and Japsers relationship?
