Edward’s POV

It’s been already a couple of weeks since the fight with Bella and when I started to romance her. I don’t hear a thing from her, but Tanya keeps me updated.

The conversation I had with her was very interesting.


Savannah doesn’t come out of her room and turns down any food. She wants to play with Nathan and Bella, but Bella refuses to pick up the phone.

It’s been one day since Bella left me on the street, but the only thing Savannah ate was the dinner I gave her before she discovered that Nathan wasn’t going to come over anymore.

I’m knocking on my daughter’s room, begging her to come out and eat something, when someone rings the doorbell. I sigh and go downstairs.

Opening the door I see Tanya smiling at me.

“Eddie!” I hear a well-known boy’s voice call out. I look past Tanya and see Nathan jumping up and down.

“Hi, Son,” I greet him. I look back at Tanya and she just smiles at me. I give back my attention to Nathan and he hugs my leg.

“I’ve missed you,” he mumbles.

“I missed you too,” I reply. “Savannah is in her room.”

Nathan runs inside and up the stairs.

“Careful, Nathan,” Tanya calls out. She steps inside and gives me a hug. Several seconds later I hear Savannah’s squeal and I smile.

“Thank you,” I say.

“You’re welcome.” Tanya goes to the living room and sits down on the loveseat. I go sit on the couch. “How are you doing?”

“As well as I can be,” I reply honestly.

“I know it’s hard and I’ve tried to talk her out of it, but…”

“She’s really stubborn,” I finish her sentence. I stand up and walk to the window. “I know, Tanya, I really know.”

“Do you have any idea how to get her back?” she asks.

I nod my head yes. “I have everything planned out.”

She smiles. “I hope it will help.”

I turn around and look at Tanya. “I hope so, too.”

The kids are laughing and running down the stairs. I smile at the scene.

“Daddy, can we play outside?” Savannah asks. I nod and the kids run outside.

“Thanks for bringing him.” I look at Tanya while I say the words. “What did you say to Bella?”

“That I’m going with Nathan to the playground.” She stands up and comes to stand beside me. “Look, Edward, you have to give it all you’ve got. It will not be easy.”

“I will try,” I tell her.

“I will be back in an hour to pick up Nathan.” She smiles before leaving my house. I walk to the back door and smile at how the kids are playing.

-End of Flashback-

Since that day, Tanya brings Nathan over occasionally so the kids can play. I don’t know what Nathan tells Bella afterward, but until today she isn’t any wiser.

Suddenly, my phone rings and I pick up without looking at the caller-ID.

“Hello,” I greet.

“Why can’t you leave me alone?” A beautiful voice says from the other side. “It’s not right.”

Before I can say anything back, Bella hangs up. I look at my phone and then around the house. If Mohammed doesn’t come to the mountain, the mountain has to go to Mohammed. It’s finally time to take matters in my own hands.

I scroll through my contacts and when I find the name I was looking for, I hit call.

“Hello,” Tanya’s voice greets me.

“Tanya, can you babysit Savannah?”

“Of course,” she says. “Do you have any plans?”

“Just come babysit.” I laugh. “And bring Nathan.”

“I’m on my way.”


Tanya arrives thirty minutes later with Nathan, who is smiling big.

“Hi, Eddie,” he greets me.

“Hi, Buddy.” I give him a hug. “Savannah is in her room.” Nathan nods and goes upstairs to her room. I look at Tanya.

“Are you okay?” she asks.

I nod. “Thank you for doing this.”

“You’re welcome, but…” Tanya hesitates. “Where are you going?”

“You’ll hear about it later today,” I tell her, taking my car keys and walking out of the house. “I don’t know when I will be back.”


The drive to my destination goes by really fast. I don’t know if it is because I’m going to take matters in my own hands, or because I’m really nervous.

I park the car across the street and watch her house for a couple of minutes. Eventually, I take a deep breath and get out of the car. I cross the street and walk up to her door.

I close my eyes, hoping that after today everything will be just as before. Someone comes out of the apartment building and I sneak in. I step in the elevator and go to the fourth floor.

I stand before her door for a few seconds, before I knock and wait patiently.

The door opens and when Bella sees me, she immediately goes to close the door. I’m faster than her and put my foot in between the door and the doorframe.

Bella sighs. “Not now, Edward.”

“I’m here to talk to you,” I tell her.

“I said, not now.” She looks at me with fear.

“Bella, we need to talk.”

“Not with Nathan in the neighborhood,” she lies. I knew she was going to say that and that’s the reason why I called Tanya.

“I know that Nathan isn’t here, Bella.”

“Nathan is playing outside,” she claims.

“No, he’s not.” I try to keep my anger within me. It isn’t my intention to yell at her, but I’m becoming tired of her excuses to avoid me.

“How would you know?” Bella asks. “I’m his mother and I know where he is.”

“Yes, and I’ve called Tanya and asked her to pick him up and come to my house.”

Bella gasps and starts to blush. She has to admit that’s she’s been lying, but then she starts to get angry.

“How dare she?” she screams at me. “If I say that Nathan cannot play with Savannah, then she has to listen to me.”

“Oh,” I say. “You don’t care about your son’s wishes and emotions. If Tanya did what she did the last couple of weeks, our kids wouldn’t come out of their rooms.”

“What I do with my kid is none of your business.”

“Maybe not, but I care about Savannah’s emotions and since Nathan comes to play, she’s happy. She still misses you, but she takes what she can get.”

I can see Bella crying and she shakes her head. “Nathan looked happier this week, but I never thought it was because of Savannah.”

“Our kids are friends, Bella,” I tell her. “You can’t deny that.”

I reach my hand out to wipe away her tears, but she pulls back.

“We really need to talk,” I sigh. She looks at me and I can see she agrees with me, but that she’s scared.

“Nathan misses you,” she mumbles.

“Savannah misses you,” I reply.

She steps inside and opens the doors further. “Come in,” she says. I step inside and walk into the apartment.

I go to the living room and sit down on a sofa, and Bella sits on a chair across me.

“I miss you,” I whisper and she looks up. The shock is evident in her eyes. “What did you expect? That I would forget you, because you don’t want to see me.”

She doesn’t say a thing and I can see that she’s thinking. I don’t expect an answer so I go further in my story.

“I like you,” I tell her before shaking my head. “No, not like. I love you.”

Her eyes go wide and she shakes her head. “No, that’s not true.”

I get up, moving to her and crouch in front of her. “You don’t have to say it back, but I know what I feel.”

She looks at me and lays a hand on my cheek. “Edward,” she whispers.


“I- I love you, too,” she stutters. I smile at her and kiss her lips.

“I love you so much,” I say against her lips. I pull back and wipe away her tears.

“I’m sorry,” she whispers. I put some of her hair that fell out of her ponytail behind her ear.

“You don’t have to be sorry, Baby,” I say. “Just don’t push me away.”

“I’ll try.”

“Don’t try,” I order. “Just do it.”

She gives me a small smile and kisses me sweetly. “Where are the kids?”

I don’t know. “Tanya came with Nathan to my house, but maybe she went to the playground with them.”

“And when will she bring my son back?”

“When I’m back home, I guess.” I tell her.

“That’s good to know.”

She kisses me passionately. I put my hands in her hair and her hands go to my neck. She moves to the couch and lies down.  I follow her, trying not to crush her.

My hands move to her cheek, down her neck to her breast. I start touching her through her clothes. I stop kissing her, because we both need to breathe, but my lips don’t leave her body. I start kissing behind her ear along her neck.

“That feels so good,” she moans.

I turn around so she’s on top me, so I’m not crushing her anymore. She’s grinding against my already hard cock. Her hands go to my belt and I stop her.

“As much as I want you to,” I tell her when I see her hurt look. “I want to take things slow.”

She smiles and starts kissing me again. “I don’t want to go slow.” She loosens my belt and then the button and the zipper of my jeans. She stands pulling me to my feet.  She pushes my pants and boxers down, dropping to her knees she takes my cock in her hand.

“God,” I hiss because of her touch. She starts to go down, and plays with my balls.

She licks the pre-cum, before putting her mouth around me.

“Feels so good,” I moan. She bobs her head up and down and what she can’t take in, she takes in her hand. I look through my lashes at my beautiful girl.  The urge to please her takes over.  Before I lose control I pull her up to her feet.  I quickly start removing her clothes.  When I get them tangled, she giggles at me and helps.

Once my beautiful girl is naked in front of me, I can’t help taking in her entire body with my eyes. 

I pull her to the sofa, and I help her lower her body to the cushions.  Once she is settled, I start at her ankles and kiss my way up her body.  Knowing we don’t have a lot of time, I cannot imagine not making sure she knows how much I want to worship her.  With licks, kisses, and nibbles, I have her moaning and crying out my name.  I flick my tongue across her sensitive nub, causing her back to arch off the sofa.

Soon her hands, which are now threaded in my hair, are pulling me up.  I let her pull as I manage to kiss or nibble her skin all the way to her mouth.  When our lips meet, her legs encircle my hips.  Using her heels she is pulling and pushing me closer to her.  I feel the wet heat against my cock.  I thrust against her and it causes my cock to slide through her folds.  I look in her eyes and see the desire and lust. 
“I love you, Bella.  Are you sure?” I ask.

“I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life,” she says working her hand down and gripping my hard shaft in her little hand.  “I love you too, Edward, more than you know.”  With the end of her words, she nestles the head of my cock at her opening. 

When she looks me in the eye and nods, I thrust inside her in one movement.  The feeling is overwhelming and the heat and tightness make me stop in my tracks.  It has been so long, and nothing I have ever felt can compare to this feeling.  This is far beyond sexual.  This is like meeting my soul face to face.  As we start to move, together we find a rhythm that has us both moaning and panting.  Reaching down I rub her sensitive spot with small circles.  I feel her walls pulse and contract around me, and it sends me over the edge.

As we both come down from our sexual high, I can’t stop kissing her, all while whispering words of love to her.


Bella has put on my shirt and her panties, while I have only put on my boxers. We are watching some movie that was on one of the channels, but it didn’t interest us.

“I love you,” she whispers.

“Love you more,” I throw back.

“Impossible,” she says. “My love for you is as big as the distance from the earth to the moon.”

I laugh. “My love for you is as big as the distance from the earth to the moon and back.”

Our banter is broken by my phone.

“Let it ring,” Bella says. I look at it and see it’s Tanya.

“I can’t, it is Tanya,” I tell her. “It could be something important about the kids.”

“Oh, answer the damn phone.” She takes the phone from the table and pushes it in my hands.

I laugh. “Hi, Tanya.”

“Ed-Edward,” Tanya says, brokenly.

“Tanya,” I say worried. Bella sits up and gives me a questioning look. I just shrug.

“The kids-” She stops talking.

“Tanya, what has happened?” I ask her.

“The kids,” she repeats.

“We are coming.”

“Not home,” she says with panicked laced in her voice. “At the park.”

“We are coming, stay there,” I tell her.

“O-Okay.” I hang up the phone.

“We have to go,” I say to Bella. She nods and stands up.

“I’m going to put on some clothes.”

I nod and take my pants, putting them on. When I want to put on my shirt, I realize that Bella has it.

I wonder what in the hell happened to have Tanya panicked.

“Here is your shirt.” Bella pulls me out of my thoughts.

“Thank you.”

“You are worried,” she states.

“Everything will be fine.” I ignore her. I put on my shirt, while walking to the front door.

“Edward, your shoes.” Bella runs after me with my shoes in her hand. I take them from her, immediately pulling them on. Afterward, I walk outside to my car.

I can hear Bella’s footsteps following me. When we are both in the car, I start the engine and drive away from her house.


When we arrive at the park, we see that it’s crowded with police.

“What is happening?” I can hear the panic in Bella’s voice. I look at her and know that her eyes are showing the same emotions: panic, worry, and fear.

“Come on,” I say. “Let’s look for Tanya.”

We both step out the car and to the park. We arrive at the entrance, but are stopped by a cop.

“Excuse me,” he apologizes. “You cannot pass this way.”

“We are looking for a friend…” I look at his nametag. “Officer Hawkes.”

“I’m sorry, Sir,” he says. “But the park is a crime scene.”

“We have to call Tanya, Edward,” Bella says.

“Excuse me,” officer Hawkes interrupts us. “Do you mean Tanya Denali?”

I nod. “Why?”

“Can you wait one moment, please?”

He doesn’t wait for our answer and walks up to some other person in a suit. They talk and then the person walks up to us.

“Good afternoon,” he greets us. “My name is detective Gary Taylor. Are you Miss Swan and Mr. Cullen?”

“Yes, can you please tell me what is going on?” Bella asks panicked.

“I’m sorry to say this to you,” Gary starts. “But your kids were taken.”

“Kidnapped?” Bella repeats questioningly.

“In broad daylight?” I ask.

Gary nods. “Yes, we are now looking for evidence that can lead us to the suspects.”

“Are their witnesses?” I question him. It would be impossible that nobody saw what happened.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Cullen,” Gary apologizes. “Tanya just looked the other way for a second and there weren’t any other people in the neighborhood.”

“That’s impossible.” I scream. “How could nobody see a thing?”

“I’m really sorry.”

“Detective Taylor,” a cop calls. Gary turns around, before looking at us.

“I have to go,” he says. He turns to another officer. “Can you take them to Miss Denali?”

The officer nods and leads us to a big tent. “Miss Denali is in here.”

We nod to him and walk inside. Tanya is sitting in a chair crying. A female officer sits next to her, consoling her.

“Tanya,” I whisper. She looks up.

“Oh, I’m so sorry,” she apologizes.

“You should be!” Bella yells. “It’s your fault that Savannah and Nathan are gone.”

“Bella,” I say. “Please, calm down.”

“Calm down, calm down?!” she screams. “It’s her fault. She had to keep an eye on them.”

“Bella, I’m really sorry,” Tanya repeats her apology. “I really am.”

“What were you doing?” Bella asks her. “Talking with your girlfriend?”

“No,” Tanya cries. “I wasn’t doing such a thing.”

“Tanya,” I say calmly. “Just tell us what happened.”

“I wanted to buy them ice cream. I took my wallet out, but I dropped it. Before picking it up, I saw them running around laughing. When I stood back up they were gone. I’ve looked at the ground for one second and they were gone.”

Tanya is full out sobbing right now.

“I’m sorry, Tanya,” Bella apologizes.

Tanya looks up and gives her a weak smile. “No, I understand you, Sweetie. I would have said the same.”

Bella sits down next to her and gives her a hug.

“I’m going to walk outside,” I tell them. Once outside the tent I look at the scene. Officers are talking, running around, investigating.

I just wonder who in the hell in his right mind will kidnap two kids during broad daylight?

Bella’s POV

While hugging Tanya, I’m hoping that everything is fine with our kids. Our kids. I can’t believe that I’m finally thinking about Savannah as my kid, my daughter.

“Let’s go home,” Tanya says, pulling away to look me in the eyes. “Let’s go to Edward’s place.”

I nod, standing up. I reach out my hand and pull her up. We walk outside the tent and I can see Edward pacing.

“Edward, Baby,” I call him. He stops and looks at me.

“We are going to your place,” I tell him. “Are you coming with us?”

He nods. “Let’s inform detective Taylor.”

We walk to the detective and tell him we are going home.

“It’s okay, Mr. Cullen,” he says. “Just give me your phone numbers and we will contact you when we have information.”

We give them all our information and then leave the park. I take one last look at the scene before stepping in the car, wondering why my perfect day, has to have such a dramatic end.
