Wow, is this an update? It sure is. Sorry for the delay. RL has been a pain, and I’ve been sick for a week. Also, there is another scene in this chapter that had to be perfect. It was also something I’ve been excited to write about since starting this story. Enjoy!
Edward led Bella down the stairs with his arm wrapped firmly around her waist. Traveling through the main floor was not only awkward for them but for the rest of Edward’s family as well. He paused as he entered the great room and tightened his grip.
Carlisle stepped in front of Esme defensively. A fire of rage burned behind his darkening eyes. They quickly flashed to Bella before focusing on Edward. His lip curled up, showing off sharp, white teeth. Esme placed a calming hand on his back, but he shrugged it off and moved to block the path to the door.
