Bella does smell a little funky, but she can't help it,I thought with a sigh as I carefully carried Bella into the nearby cover created by the trees.
Part of me wondered if Bella recognised us in some form since she was always happy when we were around and she showed that she missed Edward on more than one occasion. How could Bella recognise us, though, when she could barely crawl or understand what we were saying to her? Heck all Bella ever did was cry, poo and eat.
Poor Edward, I wondered how he was coping with all this. Carlisle was no closer to finding out how this happened to Bella, but I could tell by all the searches and phone calls that he was leaning toward witchcraft.
The change had not only affected our family, but Bella's as well. Even from here, I could hear the sound of Charlie's heart breaking as he relayed his news to Carlisle and Esme. Some good things that came with the change, she kind of liked me now, even though I had been so horrible to her while she was still her eighteen-year-old self. Not that I meant any harm, but I would not have chosen this life and Bella seemed to want to walk into it with open arms. I envied her for that.
I placed a squirming Bella onto her portable mat, which I must have set out while I was thinking. Talk about multitasking!
Just then a loud gurgle erupted from Bella's throat and I couldn't help but answer her, "You're a bit dirty, aren't you sweetie?" Of course, Bella babbled her reply. I couldn't help smiling at her cute little tone.
I quickly looked through Bella's diaper bag and placed a tube of sealed diaper rash cream in the palm of her right hand. This was something I had read in a young mothering magazine. It was a technique that would hopefully distract her from what I was about to do.
I held my breath before starting the dreaded task.
I peeled back the latex of the diaper before carefully pulling the diaper down bit by bit, but of course Bella was having none of that and soon decided to start quickly wiggling her legs. To say I was horrified would have been an understatement as the diaper flew out my grip and soon brown smelly stuff covered me.
I may have screamed for a few seconds, but quickly went to work cleaning and covering Bella up. Thankfully, I finished the diaper change in two minutes and thirty-two seconds. Unfortunately, I couldn't say the same about my clothes or hands.
I swiftly called Alice over before running at top vampire speed toward the house, but to my surprise when I got there the house was empty.
Wait a second what happened. Why was Rosalie suddenly gone? We were all smiles and then Rose was kind enough to change my little mishap. I have to admit that I may have waved my legs just a little, but I just got too excited. Did Rosalie leave because of that or did it have something to do with that brown stuff that covered her clothes, hands, and hair?
Oh well, she'll be back soon. No one can resist my charms. Just then, Alice appeared in front of me smiling before bursting out laughing.
Well at least Alice looked happy that I was finally clean.
"Oh, did you see Rosalie's face, it was hilarious Bella. You...got… revenge...big...time." I managed to make out through her giggles.
I was at a loss. Did Alice think I had done something to Rosalie?
"It was funny Bella..." Wait a minute was Alice still talking, oh well I must have tuned her out after a while. Oh, the breeze has gone that must mean my pants are back on. Now I can carry on looking for Edward, I thought happily.
"Oh guess what Bella? Edward is on his way home." As soon as those words left Alice's mouth, she had my complete and undivided attention. My Edward was coming for me.
I squirmed and squirmed until finally Alice set me down on the cold ground. I needed to find a way back home before Edward got there and panicked because he could not see me.
Alice must have seen the determination in my eyes because suddenly it felt like I was flying, and only moments later we arrived back at the house.
It took seconds for Alice to carry me into a bright room, which could only be Alice's, since there were some dangerous looking things that Alice liked to put on her feet.
"Hey Bella, who's your favourite sister now," Alice trilled as Rosalie stepped through the door with a small smile. I couldn't help giggling as I rocked forward in Alice's arms.
"Yeah I'll remember that Bella, when you next need to be changed," Rosalie muttered in distaste as a frown appeared upon her beautiful features.
Just then, a big yawn appeared out of nowhere and everybody stared at me. Well, after all, I was a baby.
"How can she still be tired?" Alice asked in disbelief.
"I don't think she wants to sleep, she's too happy," Rosalie mused as she took a small step forward.
"Waiting for Edward are we?" Rosalie asked in a soft voice before moving her hands closer to my feet and before I knew it, my whole body felt as if it was alive and goofy giggles erupted from me.
"Wait till Bella turns back, Edward will have fun knowing she's ticklish!" Alice laughed as she joined Rosalie's torture.
Once we had gotten what we needed, we were finally able to make our way home. Emmett being Emmett chose the most ridiculous things for Bella, but I wasn't surprised. I wouldn't allow it, however, if it might harm my Bella in any way.
I'm glad that Edward's nearly here, Bella will be so happy, Alice thought, as we drew closer to the house.
I wonder how Charlie took Carlisle and Esme's response to his news,Rosalie thought.
I knew then that our plan was already in place and that we couldn't turn back now.
It took a total of twelve minutes and two seconds to arrive back at the house and when we got there, I couldn't help glancing through the window to see how Bella was doing. Just seeing her breathtaking smile was enough for me. I could smell that someone in the family had recently changed her.
Soon, I was unable to wait any longer, so I rushed to open the front door with Emmett following close behind me.
"Hey everyone," Emmett boomed before pushing me out of the doorway.
Bella visibly jumped and turned toward us, but before I could kill Emmett, Alice spoke up.
"Wait for it," she said and suddenly Bella squealed, very loudly. I bet the forest animals heard her.
"Hello, to you to Bella," I chuckled as I dropped the gifts to the floor and took a step forward. I could only hope that she missed me as much as I missed her.
Bella started to wriggle furiously in an effort to get away from Alice.
"Alice careful," I called as I saw the potential danger of the situation. Bella could fall. That thought alone had me on edge.
"She can crawl, Edward," Rosalie informed me proudly. No sooner had the words left Rosalie's mouth, when Alice placed Bella on the floor and she was off. It took only moments for Bella to crawl across the floor and into my open arms.
"Ed...Heh...eh," she mumbled as I picked her up and took a sniff of the strawberry shampoo that the girls still loved to use on her.
"She missed you," Alice muttered with a smile, but I could hear hint of sadness in her tone.
I didn't have much time to reflect on Alice's comment as Bella waved her arms and pressed her lips just under my eye. As soon as Bella's lips touched my skin, sparks started tingling all through my body and I knew that I was home.
I finally could see, touch, and smell my Bella and that feeling alone was heavenly, but of course, Emmett just had to ruin it by making a childish comment.
"Eww, baby spit," he half joked as he pointed his index finger toward Bella and me. His comment did go down well however as my family laughed and Bella giggled, which of course made me happy.
