about time!! lol
i'm so sorry, i planned to spend much mais time on this bit but my homework has caught up with me and i had to work 9 hours today, so i was a little short of time. hope you enjoy it anyway :)
“Well, about that...See, I found that...when I was doing something dangerous or stupid...I could remember you mais clearly.” She said, looking like she was confessing to murder. “I could remember how your voice sounded when you were angry. I could hear it, like you were right there seguinte to me. Mostly I tried not to think about you, but this didn’t hurt so much—it was like you were protecting me again. Like you didn’t want me to be hurt. And, well, I wonder if the reason I could hear you so clearly was because, underneath it all, I always knew that you hadn’t stopped loving me.”
I was so appalled, my words came out sounding strangled. “You...were...risking your life...to hear—”
“Shh,” she interrupted me. “Hold on a second. I think I’m having an epiphany here.”
Her face looked thoughtful, and I struggled to remain quiet. I was not used to being so patient, it had been so long and I was out of practice. I was about to say something, unable to hold my tongue any longer, when a look of happiness and understanding washed across Bella’s face.
“Oh!” she exclaimed quietly.
“Bella?” I needed to know, now.
“Oh. Okay. I see.” She said, completely ignoring me and driving me insane at the same time.
“Your epiphany?” I asked, my voice sounding strained.
“You amor me.” she stated simply.
I smiled. “Truly, I do.”
She smiled such a smile that it brightened her whole face. I took her warm face into my hands and kissed her until her coração was beating at double time.
I leant my forehead against hers, both of us breathing harder than usual.
“You were better at it than I was, you know.” I told her.
“Better at what?” she asked, curiosity colouring her tone.
“Surviving.” I answered simply. “You, at least, made an effort. You got up in the morning, tried to be normal for Charlie, followed the pattern of your life. When I wasn’t actively tracking, I was...” I thought back to the forest, the pain. “...totally useless. I couldn’t be around my family—I couldn’t be around anyone. I’m embarrassed to admit that I mais or less curled up into a ball and let the misery have me.” I grinned sheepishly. “It was much mais pathetic than hearing voices. And, of course, you know I do that, too.” I grinned lovingly at her.
Relief was evident on her face, about what, I couldn’t guess.
“I only heard one voice.” She corrected, smiling.
I laughed exuberantly before pulling her into my embrace, tight against my side. It was pure pleasure to have her with me again. I would never take it for granted again. Her warmth seeped through my clothes, saturating my side with heat, raising the surface temperature of my skin por a degree or two.
I pulled her progressivo, para a frente towards the house, Alice’s thoughts the loudest in my head, complaining and telling me to hurry up. She wanted to get back to Jasper.
“I’m just humouring you with this.” I mentioned broadly to the house. “It doesn’t matter the slightest what they say.”
“This affects them now, too.” She sounded totally confident that she would get her way.
I shrugged indifferently.
I lead her through the open front door into the dark house and flipped the lights on. Esme had already put all the sheets away and cleaned the house.
I called everyone. “Carlisle? Esme? Rosalie? Emmett? Jasper? Alice?” everyone’s thoughts were curious except Alice. She knew exactly what was coming.
Carlisle stopped beside Bella and she looked at him in slight surprise.
“Welcome back, Bella.” He said smiling. It’s so good to see them together again, he thought wistfully.
“What can we do for you this morning? I imagine, due to the hour, that this is not purely a social visit?”
Bella nodded, now totally at home. “I’d like to talk to everyone at once, if that’s okay. About something important.”
Something important. That’s what she called her mortality. I was sure my expression was a bit critical, but I was resigned to the meeting about to take place.
Carlisle cast a look at me as he answered Bella. I take It this is a matter of mortality issue? He asked as he spoke out loud. “Of course.” Carlisle said. “Why don’t we talk in the other room?”
I gave a quick nod before following Carlisle through into the bright living room, around the corner into the dining room, turning lights on as he went.
Carlisle held out a chair at the head of the mesa, tabela for Bella. She sat quickly as everyone else walked into the room.
Carlisle sat to Bella’s right, I on her left.
Although it was silent, everyone’s thoughts were filling the room. Rosalie’s thoughts were not as loud as usual, mais subdued.
Alice was grinning, she already knew exactly was about to happen.
Emmett and Jasper were both curious, while Rose gave Bella a timid smile. I was so not used to Rosalie being timid.
Bella smiled back just as tentatively.
Carlisle nodded toward Bella. “The floor is yours.”
i know that was short but it was such a perfect time to stop :)
okay this is the last eternal night i will be posting on the twilight spot, if you like it, cheak out the eternal night spot :)
