“I think these are enough for today Bella… you did a good job!”
I smiled as I cleaned the blood from my face. But the thirst was now appearing! And I knew I needed more but I tried not to hunt some other poor animals! We were in the house and it was around midnight when everyone came around me and Edward, and stood with smiles on their faces. I looked at each one of them; Alice, Esme, Rosalie, Jasper, Emmet and Carlisle.
Now… they were my family!
“We have a surprise for you two!”
Edward looked at me with an unreadable expression… I knew that the surprise was Alice’s idea but I didn’t know if Edward had known this.
“I didn’t know! They were just thinking of plain things these days!”
Edward opened his mouth and choked out the words.
Emmet came near and said:
“C’mon! It’s just a surprise!”
Alice clapped and forced me to close my eyes. And then they helped me walk to somewhere I couldn’t see. I could feel Edward’s hand in mine and it comforted me although I was so annoyed that they were surprising me. Edward hold my hand tighter and made me feel better at that moment.
“Ok Em! You can open her eyes!”
Alice said while I felt Emmett’s hands brushing my hair and then I saw something beautiful. The surprise was a house, and I didn’t know if it was far away from Cullens or not!
I said while I tried to fix my wide open jaw.
“We thought you two needed some privacy…”
Emmett chuckled when Alice said the word privacy and I did too.
Alice ignored Emmett’s laughter and continued:
“So… We all hope you like it.”
“Of course we do!”
Edward said with his sincere voice while he squeezed my hand. I recognized light smiles on each of their faces. Carlisle and Esme were standing hand in hand; Emmett was standing right beside Alice and Rosalie.
“This is too much! A house! Thanks!”
I cheered as I looked at them. Their smiles got wider and I went near to hug each one of them. Alice showed me everywhere and when we got to me and Edward’s room, she opened the door like it was the door of heaven. But the moment she did it, I thought it was really heaven! Everything was calming and beautiful… I could see a king sized bed and every other thing someone could have thought of. Now, I was grateful of what Alice and other’s had done.
“Let’s see your closet!”
She went near a door, and opened it. It was half size of the room and it was a walking closet. Alice had flooded everywhere full of clothes. Although she had a god taste in fashion and designing, I really wasn’t happy with most of the dresses she bought for me.
I tried to cheer so she wouldn’t get upset with me. Edward chuckled with my idea and then let go of it because I growled.
Then everyone got to the hall, and Emmet said:
“I guess NOW they need privacy!”
And he chuckled after it. They were all gone after a minute and there was only me and Edward. I could feel the absence of something…and the absence made me happy; Edward’s anxiety for hurting me. Now… it was me which could hurt him.
“I love you”
He kissed my ear and said it with his melodic voice while he hugged me in his hands. I could see joy in his eyes. I said:
“I love you, too.”
His eyes got wide again and then he said:
“I love it when you use this gift of yours!”
We both giggled as he kissed my lips, still holding me in his arms.
“Do you really want it, NOW?”
I nodded my head as I backed off my hair from my face.
“Whatever you wish!”
He crooked my favorite smile and he started kissing my lips, this time, I could get it that he was putting all his passion in it.
