EsPOV

I ran quickly through the forest with Bella cradled to my chest as she slept, I darted past tree's alike to try and escape the rogue vampire that had been following us for months. I don't even know if we are still in America any more, I have been running for so long and the last time I stopped in a hotel was two days ago, that was the last bed Bella had slept in now she had to put up with sleeping on me.

The wind rushed past my ears and was making my hair fly back revealing my whole face, I could hear his footsteps and I willed myself to go faster...that was when I smelt it, that familiar scent belonged to only one person and I knew who he was. I knew he would help me, I prayed he would help me. I followed the scent and saw a group of vampires in a clearing, his scent went straight to them. I looked closely and saw him, his blonde hair told me it was him. Carlisle. As soon as the thought entered my mind a boy with bronze hair looked towards me, his eyes looked confused but they were set into a glare.

I just stared back at him but knew I would have to move forward soon so as to not get caught. I closed my eyes and listened carefully behind me and could hear him coming up, and fast. I gasped which made them all turn around and look towards me. Carlisle's eyes widened as he noticed who I was.

"Esme" I heard him say, his voice was happy but his face held confusion. I turned my neck and could see him coming, I ran forwards and held Bella closely to my chest.

"Esme, what are you doing here and why do you have a child?" Carlisle asked. I looked down to Bella and saw she was still asleep.

"You have to help me there's a vampire chasing me, he's after Bella" I said, he looked down at Bella and raised his eyebrows a little.

"This is Bella" I said as I moved my arms a little to hold her better.

He was getting closer and I could tell they heard him. Carlisle moved into a protective stance in front of me and Bella and crouched a little, the others followed suit, I suppose not really knowing why though.

"Carlisle who is she?" A blonde girl asked, her features were amazing, she was beautiful if you didn't know she was a vampire you would think she was a Victoria's secret model.

"Can you remember I told you a story about how the love of my life – my mate- got away?" They all nodded as he spoke.

"This is Esme" He said gesturing towards me. They all stared back at me in shock. I smiled a little before I saw James appear from within the tree's, he walked slowly towards us all and smirked at me.

"Esme, I don't see why you don't just save yourself and hand over the girl" He snickered.

"You'll have to kill me before you ever get near Bella" I seethed.

"That can be arranged" he said through gritted teeth. I heard Carlisle snarl.

"You wont ever get close to her, I will rip you apart and burn your pieces before you get the chance!"

"Oh, you and what army Blondie" James snickered. The big, burly one with dark brown curly hair stood straight showing he was a lot taller and a lot more built than James. James' eyes widened and he started to back away before he turned and ran as fast as he could back into the forest.

"Thank you" I said, as they all started to stand. Carlisle turned quickly and wrapped his arms around me and I think he forgot that I had a human child in my arms because I let out a sound that made him remember. His arms became looser around me and he smiled at me.

"I told you we would find each other again, although I thought it would be under different circumstances" He laughed, I bit my bottom lip and looked down. He put a finger underneath my chin and pulled my face up to look at him.

"Where are you going to stay now?" He asked, I shrugged my shoulders and sighed s I thought about whether or not I could get a hotel room on such short notice again.

"You can't stay in a hotel here, they barley have enough space for you to walk around in let alone have a child with you also" the bronze haired one said, how did he know what I was thinking ?

"You have nowhere to go?" Carlisle asked, his voice getting a little louder. I cast my eyes down and shook my head slowly.

"come with us, to our house there is more than enough room" I looked up at him in shock.

"I don't want to impose on you all, you've all helped me enough with James"

"You have a baby with you, of course you can come with us" The blonde girl said, she was staring down adoringly at Bella. I opened my mouth to refuse again but instead Carlisle told me not to, so I didn't.

~A few hours later~

I sat with Carlisle and the others while Bella slept in the the blonde girls bed; Rosalie I had found out her name was, she was married to the big burly one called Emmett. Alice the pixie was married to Jasper whom I found out was in the civil war.

Bella slept soundly upstairs and I hadn't heard a peep from her as of yet.

"Is Bella your daughter?" Rosalie asked, I looked at her and smiled but shook my head.

"No, she was my sisters daughter but she passes away fifteen minutes after she had given birth, which led to me being Bella's carer"

"And the scent of her blood doesn't effect you?" Edward asked; the one with the bronze hair.

"No, she is still very young so her blood isn't as alluring as if she were older"

"you mean, you can't even smell her blood?" He asked. I nodded.

"Well I can but it is only very slightly" He nodded his head and looked like he was thinking something through. Everything was quiet and it wasn't particularly a comfortable silence either.

"So when Bella wakes up, I will leave you all so you can get back to your lives that I have intruded upon" I said, they all snapped their eyes to me and Edward seemed to have done it the fastest.

"Esme" Carlisle sighed, I looked over at him and saw his eyes filled with hurt and sadness it hurt to see.

"You can't leave him now Esme, we can't count the amount of times he has told us all about you and how much that when he found you again he would never let you go...we have had to watch his heartbreak because he couldn't be with you...Please" Edward said, he was begging me to stay, the others' had the same looks on their faces.

"Yeah, and if you both got married you can be our new Mom" Emmett boomed with an enormous smile adorning his face. I laughed at his comment and looked over at Carlisle.

"I've been searching for you, I just had to get away from James' for that to happen and it looks as though he led me right to you" I said smiling, his eyes brightened and he took hold of my left hand and pulled me towards him, smiling. He wrapped his arms around me and kissed my neck.

"I've missed you so much my Love, I knew that when we had to part that we would be together again one day" He whispered into my ear. I smiled into his shoulder and couldn't contain my happiness and excitements.

"Jazzy, stop jumping" I heard Alice say from behind me, she put a hand on her husbands forearm and tried to stop him but it didn't work.

"I can't Esme is letting off a lot of emotions and I can't help it" He all but squealed. We all laughed before Alice got a glazed over look in her eyes. I got worried as I had never seen this happen to a vampire before.

"Is she okay?" I asked, they all nodded before Carlisle explained to me, what was happening.

"Alice has the power to see into the future based on what a person decides, so she is having a vision now"

Alice's eyes went back to normal and she turned to me with a smile on her face.

"Bella is going to wake up in 10 seconds and she will be upset if she wakes up without you, so get up there" She said, I ran from Carlisle's arms and up to Rosalie and Emmett's bedroom. As I opened the door Bella started to stir and I rushed toward the bed and sat down beside her body. She opened her eyes and caught sight of me before smiling a wide toothy grin and opening her arms to me, I lifted her out of the bed covers and into my lap.

"Mama Mama" She said as she rested her head against my shoulder. I kissed her mahogany brown hair and she started to look around the room. I stood from the bed and walked out of the room and down the stairs. I walked slowly through to the others and I sat down next to Carlisle again. Bella looked around and saw everyone smiling at her, she turned herself in my lap and hid her face into my chest.

They all awed, and then went back to smiling at her or watching the T.V, I bent down to whisper in Bella's ear.

"Are you going to say hello to everyone?" She didn't respond, she just stayed hid in my chest. I put my hands around her waist and turned her so she was facing everyone.

"Everyone, this is Bella...Bella this is Edward, Rosalie,Emmett, Alice, Jasper and Carlisle" I said pointing to each of them. She gave them all a little smile before trying to turn back around to hide again. I held onto her waist to keep her still and thankfully it worked.

"Can she talk?" Alice asked, I nodded and told them she could only say a couple things though, I tried to get her to speak but she wouldn't. She never speaks when around new people.

I sat talking with them all as Bella played contently with her stuffed bunny, on my lap. Carlisle held my hand for the whole night and when Bella fell asleep again I put her down on the sofa and snuggled up next to Carlisle. I didn't know how Bella would take to these new people, I just hoped she liked them.


Okay, so I will clear some things up with you all. Carlisle and Esme met just after she was turned into a vampire, but when Esme's sister became pregnant she had to go and care for her while Carlisle had to go back to his coven which consisted of only Edward, then. REVIEW REVIEW REVIEW.
