It had been a month since the Cullen's left Forks, I snapped out of my depression after Charlie threatened to send me back to Jacksonville to live with my hairbrained mother, Renee. I decided that it was time to move on with my life so what if Edward didn't love me, he told me of one coven of vampires in Italy named the Volturi, I knew that there were three Lords. Lord Aro, Lord Marcus and Lord Caius, they wrote the rules, the one was that no human should know about a vampire's exsistance. Edward and the Cullen's broke that rule, they showed me that they were vampires, I was even hunted by a vampire tracker named James.
Now I lay in bed listening to my dad, Charlie make breakfast in the kitchen. I got up and dressing quickly to go see him before he went to work. That was his family, sure he had me but he spent so much time at work that it was unhealthy.
"Morning Dad!" I said as I pranced into the kitchen. He looked up from the frying pan which held very dark bacon.
"Morning Bells, you're in a good mood." I walked over to him flipped the bacon and gave him a hug.
"Well why wouldn't I? Tomorrow I graduate, and I get to start my travelling idea that we talked about." Dad nodded
"You sure do Bells, anything to keep you happy and free from depression." I smiled meakly at him. He gave up on trying to cook the bacon so I took over and tried to revive the already blackened meat.
"I already asked Sue Clearwater if she would cook for you while I'm gone and she said that you could go over anytime you would like, since your such close friends with Harry." Dad nodded then I gave him his breakfast.
"Thanks Bella, I'm going to miss you." I choked on my glass of water, it almost sounded like he knew I wasn't ever coming back to Forks. That I would actually be in one way or another staying in Italy forevermore.
"You okay Bella?" Dad had lept up and was patting my back as I spat the water out into the sink. I nodded and wiped my mouth off on the back of my hand.
"Thanks dad, I'll miss you too." We just stood there looking a little awkward. I looked at the clock, "You better get going dad or you'll be on time." I said teasingly. He looked up at the clock and smiled,
"Only you Bella only you." He gave me a quick hug and went outside to his cop car.
It was Sunday afternoon I finished packing when I stepped on a floor board by my bed that squeeked. Dad had just done the flooring not long ago, I crouched and peeled the floor board up with my nails. Under the board was everything that reminded me of Edward and his family. I let the floor board snap back into place, it was a good place for all that stuff so I was going to leave it there hoping that when I was long gone and in Italy and Charlie had past away the house would either burn to the ground or the Cullen's would come back and Edward would check that, that stuff was still there. It would be but there would be one thing that wouldn't be there when he left. I would write letter to them hoping that they would actually find it.
I went to my desk pulled out a pen and a pad of paper, I wrote:
Dear Cullen Family;
It has been exactly one month since you left Forks. I was left here in a total state, but now I snapped out of that depression. Charlie and I have been talking more and I decied to travel the world, of course my trip only consists of one destination, Italy. I'm sure that will you miss me but by the time you will have read this I will be long gone. So much for a happy ending huh? Well it was nice knowing you;
With lots of Love
Isabella Marie Swan.
P.S. When you all left, my heart got shattered into many pieces. I'm not letting that slow me down, I'm moving on picking up the pieces as I go so I hope your happy.
I grabbed an envelope folded the letter and wrote: Cullen Family, on the front. I tucked it on top of everything else and stepped on the floor board making sure that it didn't stick up any. I went to my computer, checked my email I had one from my mom, I emailed her back then looked at the clock. Charlie would be getting home soon so I went down stairs and started to cook supper. I grabbed steaks, potatoes and vegetables, I was in the middle of peeling potatoes when Charlie came in.
"Hey Bells I'm home." He came to the kitchen, "What're you cooking?" I looked up and smiled at him.
"Sirlion steaks, potatoes, brocolie and cauliflower. I'll be making a salade too." Dad nodded took of his gun belt hung it up and washed up. He came back to the kitchen grabbed the lettuce, tomatoe, and dressing.
"This will probably be the only thing you'll let me do because it can't get burnt." I laughed and punched his shoulder playfully.
"Well that's because you don't cook salade, dad." He chuckled and we worked in silence. We didn't need words to talk, we just knew that when I was gone there was no turning back. Lots of people said I was very much like my dad. They were right, we didn't talk very much, it didn't bother us to be alone and we knew how the other one was feeling with out really asking. Dad also set table and I brought out the broiled steak, mashed potatoes and veggie mix.
"My little girl's all grown up." Charlie whispered as we sat down to eat.
"Dad I'll always be your little girl, nothing will change that." I said, he could hear the tears in my voice. The crystline tears betrayed me and slid down my cheeks.
"I'm sorry Bells I didn't mean to make you cry." I shook my head,
"No it's okay dad. I love you, and I'll miss you." We finished supper and Dad went to go shower embarressed that he actually broke down and started crying with me. I washed dishes and went to watch the game with dad. It was like a fairwell party just between the two of us and I actually really like it. I went to be that night and slept peacefully, there was no nightmares of the Cullens and for once I was glad that I didn't see Edward's face.
Dad actually stayed home from work saying that his little girl was graduating and he wasn't missing it for the world. That got me crying again and the make-up artist aka Angela had to cool me down before finishing my make-up.
"Bella really you have to stop crying!" She cried. I wiped my eyes and put in one headphone. "Good idea. No listening to sappy music!" I smiled and showed her the song, it was Body Body by Massari. She smiled and continued to finish.
Soon we were all standing tall and strong on the stage to recive our deploma, Jessica was in front of me and when she was called I wiped my hands on my gown I was so nervous.
"Isabella Marie Swan, please come forth and take you deploma." I walked forward and from the crowd I heard,
"That's my little girl WOOHOO!" Everyone laughed as I blushed. I blew a kiss out to the crowd since I couldn't see my dad due to the blinding lights. I recieved my deploma waited with the other graduates and threw my cap into the air whooping and halloring with the other.
"Bella you actually made it!" Mom came running over to me.
"MOM!" I hugged her, "Oh I haven't seen you in so long. How are you?" She smiled,
"Phil and I are awesome. Oh honey you look so gorgeous!" I laughed and we talked, dad came over and joined us. Something moved in the corner, I couldn't see because the lights were still too bright, at first I thought it was Edward, You idiot! It's not Edward or any of the other Cullen's they said they would never interfer with your life again, My mind screamed at me. I shook my head,
"What's wrong dear?" Mom asked I looked back and smiled.
"Nothing I thought I saw something that doesn't matter anymore." I whistfully walked with my mom and dad out the door of the hall. Phil joined us and together we went out for supper.
Mom and Phil left after supper saying that they had to get going. Dad and I on the other hand went out to the movies, we watched an action/comedy film then went home. I showered and realized that dad had fallen asleep on the couch again! I woke him and sent him to bed, I hopped into bed too and fell into a peaceful sleep.
In the morning I woke, grabbed my bags, and headed downstairs. I headed into the kitchen, I had to leave soon.
"Dad I was wondering will you do the honours of driving me to the air port in you cop car?" he smiled.
"Of course Bella." We had breakfast together, sometimes talking a little. Then it was time for me to go, dad drove me to the airport and I hugged him, squeezing hard so that he wold never forget me.
"Bye Bells." He whispered in my ear. I borded the plane and waited for it to take off.
"Please fasten you're seatbelts for we are about to take off." I buckled my seatbelt and popped in a piece of gum so that my ears wouldn't pop when we were at a high enough altitude.
"Ma'am can I get a drink?" I asked the stewardess. She went and got me a bottle of water, "Thank-you" She nodded and went to go tend to another person. I looked out the window to see beautiful green patches and blue water. I couldn't wait to get to Italy, where either I would be ended or accepted. I smiled and nodded off into a slight doze.
"Bella," Edward stood so still that for a moment I thought he was a statue. "I don't want you to do anything reckless, for Charlie's sake." I nodded tears sliding down my cheeks. I blinked and he was gone.
I woke immediately, no I wasn't heading down that road again. The reason for me going to Italy was that Edward lied to me, saying that he had loved me when in reality he never did. Well if the Volturi decided that I would make a formidable member it sure shock the Cullen's when I showed up with them. It was his choice to leave, it's only right that you choose what you want to do...or be my mind crooned softly. I smiled pulled out my Ipod Touch and listened to my music while the day faded into night. What I didn't see two rows back from my seat was the dark hooded figure watching me.
Hey thanks for waiting! XD Here's the next....
It had been a week and a half since Alec and I had left Ireland and went back home... although it now looked like a swallowed three basket balls. Alec was on his nerves end about everything to do with me, finally I got fed up.
"Felix! Demetri!" I yelled, they came into my bedroom,
"Take Alec somewhere, and I swear Volturi if you struggle you won't like the outcome." I growled Alec's eyes went wide and he let Felix and Demetri pull him from the room. I sighed softly and Jane came in,
"Hey Bella," I smiled, "How are you feeling now?"
"Better but I'd like you to do me a favor," She looked at me warily, "I want you to go get me a glass of human blood,"
"Are you insane?" I smiled looking down at my very swollen stomach,
"No, I'm trying a theory, if I'm correct I will start to become stronger, proving that the child is indeed half vampire." She looked at me with wide eyes,
"What would..." I cut her off
"Because Alec's a vampire Jane and I'm a human obviously now please do me that little favor and don't drink it yourself." She smiled sheepishly and left the room and I picked up my book to read peacefully.
I had brought Tanya home to Carlisle, Esme, Rose and Emmett they were all shocked that we were together as in together they were all shocked when I said, that I probably didn't love Bella as much as I thought I did.
Tanya lay across my lap as we watched T.V. and the rest of my family was actually happy that I wasn't a monotone robot anymore.
"So love?" I looked down at Tanya,
"Yes?" I asked softly, I have a question, I don't mean to rush anything but, do you love me so much that you'd marry me? I smiled and bent down kissing her forehead, "Of course I would." She smiled and held my hand tracing the creases on my hand.
"Alright," She said softly.
"In fact..." I got up and went and got my Mother's ring, I went back to her, "Tanya, I love you a lot and you know that, and I'm really not sure what the rest of my family or what your family will say but... I can't let you go now, Tanya will you marry me?" She blinked several times and I heard several gasps from various spots around the house, I smiled looking up at her from my one knee.
"Of course I will!" I slid the ring onto her finger and she kissed me right as Carlisle and Esme came into the room. She pulled back and smiled lovingly at me, Mrs. Tanya Mason Cullen... that has a ring to it! I smiled nodding and Esme came over hugging me then Tanya,
"As long as you're happy my boy." She murmured,
"I am Esme, I'm very happy," Carlisle came over and shook my hand then hugged Tanya,
"Well this is a surprise but that's alright," I smiled and from Esme and Tanya's thoughts they were already planning out the wedding and when it would be.
Sorry this is like insanely short but I didn't have much time XP
Chapter Twenty-Two (Part-Two)
I was hanging out with Felix and Demetri when my cell rang, I answered it quickly.
"Hello?!" I said instantly ready to bolt,
"Hey Alec, not to freak you out or anything but you better get back home, Bella is freaking out right now," It was Jane, I was instantly running back home,
"Freaking out about what?!" I asked,
"You should just get over here," Jane said, I was worried now,
"Is Bella in labor?" I asked I seen the castle ahead and that only pushed me faster, "I'm almost at the castle talk to you in a moment!" I put my cell in my pocket and leaped right over the high wall to lead in to the castle. I ran into the castle only to have Jane catch me.
"RELAX!" She yelled, I glared at her and she zapped me for a moment, "Relax Alec, Bella is alright she's just freaking out about things that really you should be the one to handle." I went to my room, well our room now. I opened the door and found Bella sobbing,
"Bella honey what's wrong?" I asked walking over and taking her into my arms, she just buried her face into my chest and just sobbed, I was so confused and I let Bella cry it out.
Bella had fallen asleep on me like usual and I held onto her but she bolted up holding her stomach, I was used to this,
"Bella honey it was just a dream, the babies are alright, and so are we." She looked at me with fear filled eyes,
"Just a dream?" I nodded, and she relaxed into me, "Oh, okay, just a dream, it was all just a dream..." She sighed softly and I knew she was dozing back into sleep. Jane and Alice came in,
"You should have seen her earlier, oh my goodness, I've seen my sister go a little crazy when it came to parties and that but she had gone back to sleep and she woke freaking out about the rest of the Cullen's coming to get her and the baby, although Alec you might want to know now..." Alice started I cut her off,
"I'm going to have a son and two daughters." They started at me, "Bella's dreamed of the very same ever since she came here, well really it was when we hooked up," Alice smiled,
"She might be able to see the future when she's changed." I shrugged,
"Maybe but Bella is absolutely perfect the way she is, and that's all I ask of her." Jane smiled and she seemed to get a little sheepish, "Jane, dearest sister, what is up?"
"The sky," I laughed and she snorted, "No um I think I've found the right guy..." I looked at her, "The conversation we had before you and Bella got married?" My eyes widened,
"You do realize I want to meet him, I am your big brother after all." She smiled and nodded,
"Tomorrow," I nodded and they left the room, so I picked up a book and started to read as the night wore on.
Walking through the meadow I looked around to smile at Greydon, Serenity-Rose and Renesme.
"Mommy look at what I caught!" Serenity-Rose called running over to me, I smiled as she showed me the butterfly in her hands,
"That is such a beautiful butterfly my darling." She beamed and Alec came over to us,
"Darling the Cullen's have now been warned if they try to even touch you or the children they will be in deep trouble." I nodded and he wrapped his arm around me, "Children!" They all looked up and ran over, it was amazing that these small creations had come from the two of us. Alec smiled and we picked up our children,
"Can we go home now?" Renesme asked yawning,
"Of course darling." I said happily shifting the girls to my hips as Alec carried Greydon, "We'll go home now."
I woke early the next morning feeling like I swallowed a mini-van, the idea I had the other day was actually working I was getting stronger and it seemed to me that all I was drinking was human blood, Jane had laughed when I acknowledged this,
"Well at least you won't be shy in digging into human veins when we change you sister." I had snorted then but now I was thinking that she was right, drinking all this human blood for my children was actually preparing me for my vampire state!
Jane walked in with the covered glass, Alec still didn't know I was drinking blood and it had been at least three or four days since I started my idea and I was amazed how well it was working. Alec looked up when he seen Jane come inside and give it too me,
"Bella dearest, what is that?" I sighed he finally was asking, I wasn't going to hide it from him so I took a sip, and leaned in gently pressing my lips to his. I pulled back just as fast, Alec licked his lips, "You're drinking blood?" I nodded he smiled,
"It's because the children are half vampire, half human, and the reason I was getting weaker was because the children were somehow drinking my blood from inside my body... and I think that's worse then drinking another human's blood." He smiled,
"I was going to say it was cool," I immediately felt like bad, he smiled and ruffled my hair adoringly, "Don't worry love," I nodded and we sat quietly for a moment, something rolled through my stomach and I wondered what going on, I shifted several times not able to get comfortable. "Honey are you okay?"
"I don't know," I whispered, I lifted my really baggy shirt and smiled when I seen a small little hand print on the front of my stomach. "I don't know if that's creepy or cute, so I'll let you decide," I looked at Alec and he had the brightest smile on his face,
"That's adorable." He murmured in my ear, Alec held me gently and rubbed my stomach sometimes passing over where the little hand was. "You're going to make such a wonderful Mommy, Mia Bella." I beamed,
"Well I'll have you won't I?"
