Chapter 3: Pink,Pink and Pink!
Shopping with Alice is like arm wrestling with Emmett, it's impossible to win. She has so far dragged me to every baby store in Forks and has spent over a thousand dollars in each. We are currently in Seattle, and it's not going over so well. "Alice! Do we have to have everything pink? Seriously?" Alice just looked at me and continued down the girly aisle. "It is a girl Bella, but I suppose we can get somethings that are yellow, or even bright blue if you want." I didn't mind shopping at all really, it's just Alice goes a tad overboard.
"One day Bella, you're going to thank me for this. You and Elaine." I stopped dead in my tracks. "Elaine? Alice, who's Elaine?" Then it hit me. "Her name is going to be Elaine?" I placed my hand on top of the growing bulge. Alice smiled, "Elaine Elizabeth Cullen is her full name. We call her Liz Lane as a nick name."
Alice picked out a couple more things, then we went to the maternity clothing store. "Alice, you have got to be kidding me. I fit just fine in my clothes." Alice looked at me and then at my belly. "Not for long. Give it a couple more days and you won't be able to fit in to your jeans." I felt as if my face fell. She ended up buying me 15 pairs of jeans,20 shirts and a couple pairs of ligneire that Edward was definetly going to love. One pair was really lacy and the top split over my belly, very much see through.
We arrived back at the house to see a waiting Edward. "What did you get me?" He asked. "Nothing, we got them for Bella and for you to shred into a million peices." Edward smiled his crooked smile. "Is that so? May I see?" I shook my head. "Not at the moment, but you and Emmett can help us get the evidence of the shopping trip. If you don't mind." I said and Emmett was by his side at an instant. "Don't even think about looking." Alice called.
Emmett and Edward left to get the rest of the things out of the car. I trodded up the stairs to my bedroom, changing into a pair of pj pants and one of Edward's shirts. I was still shirtless when two men came into my room. Emmett and Edward walked in right as I turned to face the door. "Emmett! This is why you knock!" I yelled. Emmett quickly covered his eyes with the forcefull help of Edward.
Edward quickly shoved Emmett out of the room and shut the door. "We need a lock." I said into his chest. My face was burning red. "That we do."He wrapped his arms around me. "Do you want to put the shirt on now?" He asked jokingly. "I should, shouldn't I?" Edward nodded and handed me the shirt.
It was one of my favorites of his. It was a simple black shirt and that was all to it. It was my favorite because he always wore it, so it had his scent was the strongest on it. "Oh, Charlie called while you were out. He wants to know when we're going to visit." Thankfully the pregnancy belly only looks as if I've gained a few pounds. "What did you tell him?" I asked.
"I said that we were going to come over tonight, and that we had something to tell him." I placed my head against his chest. "Is that all?" Afraid to ask again. "Yes it is. You might want to on some pants, it's almost seven." If I could punch him, without breaking my hand, and it actually hurt him, I would do it. "Yes, master." I groaned, putting my jeans back on.
When we were in front of Charlie's house, my stomach started to turn into mush. "Maybe this isn't a good idea Edward." He looked at me with loving eyes. "Charlie is in a perfect mood, considering he thinks that the news is that either we are getting a divorce or you're pregnant. Either one he will be thrilled at. Trust me." I took a deep breath and Edward opened my door.
He grabbed my hand, squeezing it every now and again to tell me he was there. I knocked at the door and Jacob answered? "Hey Bells! Hello Edward." Jacob looked at Edward with disgust. "Hey Jake! What are you doing here?" Charlie answered this one. "I told Billy that you and Edward were coming over and Jacob wanted to see you. Billy couldn't make it though. He says "Hello"." Perfect.
"Why didn't you tell me he was here." I whispered at Edward. "Don't worry. He's just a curious as Charlie." We sat on the couch with Charlie sitting in a chair infront of us and Jake sitting in the rocker beside me. "So what was it you two needed to tell me in person?" Edward and I looked at eachother and he nodded for me to tell him. To tell my father that his one and only was pregnant. Was Edward out of his ever loving mind?
"Well, dad, Edward and I are, um, expecting." Jacob was the first to catch on. "Congratulations! How far along are you?" Edward answered. "3 months." Then Charlie caught on. "Umm, you mean expecting as in a baby?" I nodded. Edward was smiling, meaning everything was fine. "That's great Bells! I'm going to be a grandfather. But Bella, I need to talk to you alone though. You don't mind do you Edward?" He shook his head.
"Great. Follow me Bella." Charlie said standing up. I shot a frantic look at Edward for some kind of explanation but his face was perfectly smooth and totally unreadable. I groaned getting up following my father to the kitchen.
