Part 1 – Catching Up


20 years had passed since that night in the woods with the Volturi yet it only felt like yesterday to me, I was still getting used to my new durable body, the old clumsy, awkward Bella was never going to return, I
was now inhuman with almost super reflexes and I could sense everything around
me, it was like I had been awakened. I was however feeling empty from the
events of the recent months.

Edward; my darling Edward did everything as usual to please me, he even took to hunting for the both of us and storing the blood at our cottage, but me on the other hand would usually love to hunt, I’d been getting
the hang of it now, although I still look like I’ve been dragged through a
hedge backward once I had caught my prey. Edward was as usual the epitome of
perfection not even spilling a drop of blood and his clothes were spotless.

The reason for all the over the top attention from my dedicated and loving husband was two fold and something I haven’t spoken about since it happened; not even to Edward. He told me once that after a few decades
everyone you love will be gone and he was obviously going to be right, three
years ago my father Charlie had passed on. We had been living away in Alaska at the time and
it kills me that I was not here to care for him, he must have suffered so much
inside; for me my pain comes from the knowledge of finding out that he had
cancer and never told us. I just…well…I could have done something; anything. Of
course whenever I thought now because I had given myself completely and
willingly to Edward at the slightest hint of these thoughts he was suddenly at
my side showering me with comforting kisses and the tenderest of embraces.

If only dad could have told us then we could have come back and stayed hidden in the cottage whilst taking care of him; he knew the risks for us by then, the non-ageing gave it away. I still remember him nearly having
a heart attack when Jake phased in front of him. Although he said he didn’t
want to know at the time, the ice cold and pale white skin, my new red and then
golden eye colour meant he couldn’t help but play detective. He was in denial
at first “vampires…oh come on Bell’s you gotta give me a better excuse than
that”  Edward told him the long twisted
stories of the past about the newborns and the treaty with the wolves, I mean
it was easy for him to believe Jake; not that he wanted to. It was only easier
for me to bear the burden of his illness as I knew that Nessie, my half human,
half vampire daughter and my best friend Jacob were living on the reservation
at the time. But it still kills me that he felt that he couldn’t tell anyone. I
have even thought that if we knew, he could have had the choice like me to join
our immortal and slightly dysfunctional family, it was too late now for that;
he was gone and never coming back. We did attend the funeral in Forks from a
distance as most of the local would have easily recognised me and the fact that
I still look like I am 18 frozen in time would have sent a few of my friends
parents into shock at their age. We stood at the edge of the woods like shadows
in the mist. Fortunately you could always count on the weather in Forks to be

The second reason for my sadness of late was that me gorgeous daughter also distraught by her grandpa’s death, had been imprinted on by my best friend Jake. I still could easily tear him limb from limb for that.
The thought that he had kissed me and……..”Bella please don’t think those things
its bad enough being able to hear my daughters and Jacob’s loving, yet sordid
intentions for each other I don’t need to be reminded of that night” Edward
bellowed out from the next room. If I find it difficult to stomach then I cannot
imagine what Edward feels like sometimes. Now Renesmee was grown into a lovely
young woman with poise and dignity about her and Jacob was free to make that
move that he had been waiting for all these years. The protector would now
become the lover and friend. I remembered Jake telling me all those years ago
about Quil and Claire who was 2 at the time. Jake and Nessie had moved away as
well which must have broke dad’s heart, she started college and Jake followed
her like the good faithful puppy he is! I am so very proud of her to be able to
complete her education and then decide on her future but also knowing that Jake
would be loyal to her and protect her all the time was more reassuring. She was
at Dartmouth
spending her daddy’s money; well we sure as hell didn’t need it so she might as
well enjoy herself, at least she is staying in her own house there with no nosy
friends. Alice
keeps a watchful eye on her future too although I’d rather not hear some of the
things they have planned! Alice
and Jasper were close we are never quite sure where but they can be reached by
their cell if we need them. Rosalie and Emmett had stayed in Alaska as Emmett
liked the “wildlife” up there and our kind don’t have to hide as much, the
weather is always cloudy and cold.

Esme and Carlisle were actually back in Forks with us now they had taken up the house again however it was much quieter for them. They had just come back from another honeymoon of
their own which they enjoyed immensely on Isle Esme; although Esme wasn’t to
happy when the cleaning lady had quit due to believing evil spirits had possessed
the place and a hefty bill for all the mess Edward and I caused on our
honeymoon. I have some very mixed human memories of that place, both eternal
bliss and horrific pain. Edwards stunning model-esque naked form as he walked
from the sea in the moonlight I have never been able to shift from my mind and
I don’t want it to go either as so many memories had since my transformation.

The one thing I had remembered was my best friend Angela and whilst running a few errands in town and trying to keep a low profile I found myself heading towards her house; the lambo wasn’t exactly a subtle car in
forks to drive. But something made me want to catch a glimpse of her. Deep down
I knew she would have moved away like Jessica and Mike did when they went to
college, she was always going to study photography and journalism or at least
that was the original plan. The house was still there a little run down and a
car in the drive that was more modern that I’d expected. I parked a little down
from the house and crept up to the window. I saw a girl standing in front of
the fire place, she was young, pale and had her head bowed. Her eyes were
closed and her hands were palm up by her sides. And just at that moment I was
face to face with Edward lying on the bed at the cottage. He was softly
stroking my face and talking on his cell at the same time thanking whomever was
at the other end. I had lost a whole part of my day, this was seemingly
impossible for a vampire as nothing except other vampires and werewolves should
be able to hurt our kind and my shield repels everything so no one except
Edward can get into my thoughts.

When I was back on my feet and in …. urgh not again. What is it with this family and satin night dresses! Not that I slept anymore but I can guarantee it was from Alice’s
original wardrobe choices when they unveiled our adorable cottage to me as a
wedding present. I looked straight into Edward’s eyes and asked if Alice had been here
looking down and around at my bright blue dress, he chuckled “well not here in
person but of sorts yeah she was”

“what do you mean by that Edward, my heads fuzzy, no riddles tonight please” He smiled eyeing me up and down “please don’t object to the dress, it was one of my fonder memories of you once you had just changed and we
went hunting, you tore the other to shreds and I like the fell of it between
our skin. I wanted to put you in something more comfortable until you came
round; you gave Alice and me quite a scare”

I couldn’t resist that crooked smile so I forgave him easily “do you know what happened?” I asked “I got a frantic call from Alice saying you were going to pass out outside Angela’s old house, I knew you had the grey lambo from the Cullen garage so I ran
instead, at first I thought Alice
was trying to wind me up but I could read her mind and she was extremely
worried. When I got there you were indeed on the floor in a heap, I couldn’t
wake you and I heard a ringing in my ears so I popped you in the car and sped
home, I’ve just got off the phone from taking to Alice” Edward was looking at
me intensely, looking to see if there was any damage? Emotionally? I wasn’t
sure really but I’m glad he was there.

We were sitting on the bed just staring at each other for a while “ I cant believe how lucky I am to have you, there is no way I’m letting you out of my sight for a few days” he swung that crooked smile my way and I
just melted; a thousand emotions exploded into one with that smouldering look.
He took his hand from my knee up the outside of my thigh until it slid
effortlessly under the satin dress; which did feel exquisite against my skin
now he was there. His hand was perched now on my hip under the dress and he
gently lifted me further onto the bed and we laid together with him half over
me his hand still on my hip as if he could control my world from there. The sun
glistened through the open bedroom glass doors and I the mirror I could see his
whole back shimmering with diamonds and from my toes to my exposed right hip
was all a glow. His soft kisses still made me feel dizzy with pure pleasure he
started with my lip then my chin and under my jaw bone, down and along my
collar bone, he came back to my neck and his breath even though warm to me now
I was a vampire was sending intense shivers down my spine, I just wanted him
right now my body ached to feel him inside me again, I was so much more aware
of all my sense now and I wanted MORE, much more. I started to hitch up my
dress dragging the satin over my skin, it felt silk and smooth as it traced my
contours it help keep the fire burning inside me.

“Oh there is something I forgot to tell you” he muttered, damn he knew just when to put out my fire, could my day get any worse!

“before I drove away I saw something and I’m still not sure what to make of it” Edward looked perplexed; no wonder he wasn’t concentrating properly on me before “what is it Edward, come on spit it out why don’t you or
did you get me all worked up for nothing”

“I saw someone in the house a young woman about 18 years old I would say” “yes I saw that too right before it happened” I answered “at first I thought that it was the daughter of the owner and then she turned around” he
paused “come on Edward, the suspense is killing me, so you saw a girl did she
sprout wings or something?”

“No Bella the point is… it WAS Angela”
