"Ever!" I spun around franticly. "Ever! Baby, where are you!" No one else was around. We were all looking around the park, in the bathrooms and the little building that sat beside. She wasn't anywhere.
"Ever!" Edward was just as frantic. I could hear a baby talking but I couldn't see it.
"Baby bear!" Emmett yelled for her.
"Ever!" Edward screamed once last time and I shot up out of bed, sweating, and panting for air.
"Bella?" Edward sat up.
Tears were rolling down my cheeks and my lungs were sobbing for uneasy breaths. "Bella, love, did te dream again?" He asked, pulling me into his arms.
It had been two years since it happened. Ever was takin from me. On her birthday, at the park.
They found her three weeks later, though she was no longer alive. The man that took her lived in La Push and he had a record. His name was Jacob Black and he had been dato a life sentince.
I dreamed of Ever when I dreamed at all. Her cheery voice, her bright eyes, her love. It broke my heart.
The voices from the monotor brought me back as Edward and I climbed out of bed. It was six-thirty and the twins usually got up around this time.
"It's okay." I sighed, picking up Emma and brought her down stairs.
Edward was rubbing Evan's back as he laid his head on Edward's shoulder.
The twins had just turned two. There names were Emma Paige and Evan Parker. Emma's hair curled like Ever's did, it was also down to her shoulders. Evan's hair was the same copper color and curled at the every ends.
We had moved on from greiving about Ever. We both still missed her dearly but decided she was much happier where she was and wouldn't want us to be sad all the time. Ever made us bubbly and happy and we will stay that were for her, eachother, Evan, and Emma.
"Hi sweetie." I smiled to Evan as Edward set him in his booster seat. He smiled back and pointed to the fridge.
"Milk, Momma." He told me.
"Emma?" I asked. "What do te want to drink? latte o juice?"
"Juice." She smiled. Of course she did.
"Apple o orange?" I pulled there sippy cups out of the cabnit as Edward fixed there crostini, pane tostato and cut up their bananas.
"Ahpoo." I smiled at her.
"Mr. Cullen." I smiled. "I don't believe I have told te goodmorning yet."
He looked at me from the corner of his eye and smirked. "No. No, I don't think te have." He stopped cutting and supported himself with his palms on the edge of the counter.
"Well then." I stepped closer to him. "Good morning." I stood on my toes and pressed a baciare onto his lips.
"Good moring." He smiled and bent down to baciare me once più before giving the twins their breakfast.
I was pushing my own crostini, pane tostato into the tostapane when the phone rang. I grabbed it off the hook and answered. "Hello?"
"Hey, Bella! It's Alice. Alaigha wants to come over for a play date. Is that okay?" Alaigha was the same age as the twins, only she was 3 weeks older.
"Yeah, sure." I took my toats out at set it on a plate. "How about te come over around lunch and I will have grilled cheese and stuff made?"
"It sounds awesome!" She chimed. "Bye, Bella. See te then."
I dialed Rose's number to tell her about the play date. It wouldn't be a play data without mini Emmett.
"Hello? No. Jackson. Hang on, Bella." She held the phone out and I laughed. "Emmett!" I heard a muffled 'What?' "Come get your kid! I can't get ready while he is squirting your shaving cream everywhere!" She sighed and came back to the phone. "Sorry, Bella. Good morning."
"Morning, Rose." I laughed. "Alice is bringing Alaigha over around lunch. te wanna' bring Jackson?"
"Sounds nice. I could use a break. I wish I was a guy so I could sit on my culo and do nothing!" She yelled down to Emmett. "Gah."
I laughed. "Okay. See te around lunch."
"Bye, Bells. EMMETT!!" Then the line went dead.
I shook my head and laughed aloud. "Rose?" Edward asked as we sat down at the table.
"Yeah." I smiled. "She's trying to get ready for today but Jackson is making a mess and Emmett is sitting on his ass."
"Sound's like my brother." He laughed taking a bite of his toast.
"I wan some ah yoors." Emma pointed to Edward.
"I have the same thing te have." He told her. "You eat yours."
"I wan bite." Evan pointed to Edward too.
"No, guys. Eat what te have."
"Latoor?" Emma asked.
"Yes, te can have some of mine later."
Tipical Emma and Evan. Wanting what someone else had, even if it was the same.
"So what are te doing today?" I asked Edward.
"I am working the ER today so I will have to leave soon and I will be home around four." With the help of Carlisle, Edward graduated two years early and landed a job as soon as he was out.
I took a couple Fotografia classes but decided after having Ever, I wanted to work with kids. I was a 2nd grade Elementry school teacher and loved ever minute. I get the summer off with the twins along with holidays and snow days so they are never home alone o staying late. One of the preferito parts of my job.
"Are te working with your dad today?"
"Not unless it gets bad enough. It shouldn't get to awful." He shrugged getting up to set his plate in the sink.
He helped the twins down and turned on Special Ageant Oso for them.
While I washed and dried the dishes Edward went upstairs to get ready. A few minuti later he came down in his green scrubbs that made his eyes look like summer sun shining through albero leaves.
"I will see te at lunch." He bent down to baciare me and grabbed his keys.
"Bye, guys!" He yelled to the twins who yelled back a chourse of 'Bye, Daddy.' and 'Wub you.' (love you)
Alice and Rose came over around lunch as planed and while I fixed lunch we let the kids play a little before.
"I'm stronger than you." Jackson told Evan.
Deffently Emmett's kid.
"Jackson. No, sir." Rose gave him a look. "That's not nice." She rolled her eyes and looked to me and Alice. "I swear that kid. He throws fits like his dad too. I'm just waiting for the giorno his head starts so spin around. I had to sit on him the other day."
"What?" ALice raised her eye brows.
"He's almost stronger than I am. He's tuff. He's going to get me down and be me up one of these days." She took a swing of her sweet tea.
"I wish te the best." I smiled at her. "Evan and Emma aren't bad. They just want something someone else has got. Food, close. Evan told Emma the other giorno to trade beds."
We laughed and Alice spoke. "Alaigha is so calm sometimes and then so roudy the next. She jumps off the walls and on the beds. It's crazy. I have no idea where she gets it."
"Oh, Alice. Shut up." Rose laughed. "You know just as well as we do that she gets it from you."
"Oh, I know." She laughed. "I was kidding."
"Uh, hu." I smiled.
"What?" She asked inocently.
A cry broke out in the open aera and we all tunred to see who it was. Jackson was crying and laying on his stomach, slobbering on the floor.
"See." Rose commented. She got up and walked over to him. "What's wrong?" She asked him.
"Evan won't let me take his fuoco truck away from him." He pouted.
"What? Of course he won't." She picked him up and brought him over to sit with us. "I swear. This kid is going to be the death of me. I don't think I will be able to handle this successivo one."
Alice stopped in mud drink, her eyes wide and my mouth hung open waiting for the chip in my hand. successivo one?
