"Hmmm", I snapped out of my thoughts and looked at Ella. She had a worried look on her face.
"Are you alright?", She asked me worriedly.
"Yes, I was just thinking something", I smiled at her. Currently we were sitting near the same lake we went yesterday. I was deep in thinking about Edward, he had not returned yet. Ella told me he would come yesterday but he didn't. I was worried about him and I had no way contacting him. He had closed his mind link also.
"He will be back by nightfall, don't stress about it, its not good for the baby", Ella said placing her hand on my shoulder. I just nodded back still worried about Edward.
"Come lets go back, its almost noon", we stood up and made our way back to the house. After reaching we both started having our lunch. After lunch we just sat down talking.
"Don't you get lonely here sometimes, with no one around", I ask her, she looks at me and just shrugs her shoulder.
"It gets lonely sometimes but after eight years I'm kinda used to it. I love gardening, so most of my time will be occupied with planting but sometimes my thoughts occupy me. So its rare for me to get bored", she says with a low smile.
"Do you wish to return back?", I ask her cautiously. Her shoulders tensed at my question. She bit her lip and turned her head away from me. She grew silent without answering my question. I mentally slapped myself for asking her without thinking twice.
I opened my mouth to change the topic but she beat me to it.
"I wish I could but I'm still afraid, many times I have thought to return back and move on but I couldn't find the courage in me. I'm scared to mingle with people, scared that they would be able to break me again. Scared to face their pitiful gaze, but most importantly I'm scared to live again", she whispered the last line as tears spilled from her eyes. She tried to wipe her tears but more tears spilled as she continued to wipe. I stood up to reach her but stopped when I heard a worried voice behind me.
"What is going on here?", Edward asked both confused and worried. He rushed towards his sister and wrapped her arms around her. Ella tried to remain strong but finally broke down when Edward embraced her in his arms.
After sometime Ella finally calmed down, I went towards her and gave her a glass of water. She just sipped the water a bit and gave me a small smile.
"Brother your back, Rosie was worried sick about you", Ella said turning back to her brother, Edward looked at me and turned back to her.
"Are you alright, Ella. What happened?", he asked her softly, she just shook her head and laughed.
"Nothing brother, I'm fine, it was just a moment of weakness, nothing to worry about", she just shrugged her shoulders without telling her brother what was wrong. I noticed she was putting back her wall by blocking others.
"Don't say nothing to me, Ella. You never cried on me, this is the first time", he asked her again.
"Brother, when I say its nothing then it means nothing. As I said it was just a moment of weakness. Now stop all this interrogation and see to your wife who was worried sick for you from morning", with that she strolled out without giving her brother to question her more. Edward sigh and turned towards me.
"What happened to her? Why was she crying?", He asked coming near me. I bit my lip contemplating whether to lie or say the truth. I thought it was better to say the truth than lie to him.
"Yesterday she told me about her past so--", he cut me off before I could finish.
"Did you force her to say?", He took alarmed step back, my eyes widened at his question.
"No no no, I swear she said everything by herself, I didn't force her, believe me", I rushed to him and held his hand in me pleading to him with my eyes. He was silent for a minute searching my eyes after satisfied that I was saying the truth he just nodded for me to continue.
"Yesterday she told me everything about her past. So I asked her if she wished to come back, I thought she needed someone to give her the courage she needed to get back. That's why she broke down. I'm sorry I didn't know that she would feel bad by my question", I said swallowing back the tears which was threatening to escape. Edward nodded his head understanding me.
"Its okay I understand", he embraced me in his arms as the first tear slipped from my eyes. He pulled back and wiped my tears.
"Its okay my love, stop crying it's not your fault", he said softly.
"Its my fault I shouldn't have asked her", I said sniffing.
"She needed that remainder, she needed to know that she had to return back. Its been eight years, she needed to come back. So its good you asked her about it", he said pushing my hair aside away from my face.
"Is it really?", he leaned in and placed a kiss on my forehead.
"Yes, my love", he said smiling and embraced me in his arms once again. He pulled back and placed a small kiss on my lips, he placed his hand on my stomach.
"How's my baby?", He asked rubbing my stomach. We both laughed as the heat spread on my stomach and on to his palm.
"Did you have your lunch", I asked him, for which he nodded in no. I pulled him towards the kitchen and made him sit. I served him the remaining pasta. He started eating while I sat before him watching him eat.
"Did you have yours?", He asked in between his bite.
"Yes, just before you came", he nodded and started eating again. Seeing the cheesey pasta made my stomach grumble. Edward laughed hearty while my face flushed red in embarrassment. He pulled me in his lap and held the spoon full of pasta near my mouth.
"I'm not hungry, it's your baby who is", I said defending myself. I chewed on the pasta greedily while Edward laughed again feeding me
"Yes, blame your hungry on my baby", he said chuckling, I just nudged him with my elbow. He smirked and started to feed me.
He wiped my mouth with the towel after we finished. I felt guilty as I ate most of his lunch. He stood up with me in his arms. He walked towards our room and sat us on the bed with my legs either side of his thighs. I leaned my head on his chest.
"I missed this, I missed you", he whispered softly as he wrapped his arms around me tightly. I pulled back and looked at him.
"I'm sorry for not understanding you, I'm sorry for being stubborn", I muttered softly, he shook his head and cupped my face. Guilt and regret flooded in my mind, I remembered how I forced him to say me about Ella, about her past. How stubborn I was in forgiving him.
"You don't need to be sorry my love, no one can be more understanding to me than you, your the only person who understands me in this whole universe", with that he captured my mouth in a passionate love filled kiss.
He pulled back and whispered words which made me fall in love with him more and more.
"Your my precious, my love, my soul mate, my rose"
