<span style='font-family: "Times,";' georgia,="" serif;"="">I feel extremely dazed. Another child. I’m with a high chance, able to have another baby with Edward. If he wants to. If I want to. Would Raven and Blaze even like to have another sibling?
‘Melody please tell me what you’re thinking? I can’t read minds you know,’ Scarlett breaks me from my over thinking. I am already thinking too much ahead and there isn’t a possibility that I am pregnant right now.
‘I’m…quite astonished. Are you sure it’s possible?’
Scarlett shrug,’ you can always try and test the theory. If you both want it off course.’
I look at her not knowing how I feel. Should I talk to Edward about this? Or not even consider this at all. My heart wants me to consider having another baby and my motherly mind goes in overdrive. So maybe I want this, but Edward needs to agree. I can’t conceive a baby by myself.
I ask Scarlett not to let anything slip out about this until I’ve spoken to Edward. She promises me she won’t tell anyone and I thank her before leaving her office.

As I’m walking through the aisle, back to the waiting room area, trying to not get panicked by the news that Scarlett just told me, I get a text message.

AliceCullen: don’t forget 2 talk 2 Carlisle ;] XO

Ah, the pixie surely never forgot anything. Good thing she’d foreseen I would. I turned back around for the reception.
‘where can I help you with?’ the same woman from earlier smiled kindly at me. her mind told me otherwise, as she didn’t really like not having had the pay raise she’d wanted.
‘I’m searching for doctor Cullen. Do you know where I can find him?’
Her expression becomes like her mind is now – cranky, ’Dr. Cullen is on shift. Only family can disturb him when needed. ‘
I raise my eyebrows, ’Well in that case, I’d like to speak with him if possible. I’m his son’s girlfriend,’ I remarked snidely.
She seems to think about that, if she beliefs me.
‘Well how do I know for sure?’

‘Because it is. Miss Swan is as good as family to me, Tina.’
I smirk, because I had heard Carlisle come in behind me. Tina the Cranky Nurse apologized to Carlisle, rather flustered. I roll my eyes as I turn around to face Carlisle and he motions for me to follow him, ’We’ll go to my office, darling,’
I smile sheepishly at his way of addressing me. I like to think that I have two father’s and one mother. And that mother is without a doubt Esmé.
We walk down an aisle, go to the left and he stops in front of a white door, opening it with a card. We step in and he again motions for me, this time that I should sit down on a chair.
He steps around his desk and takes his own seat, propping his elbows on the table, his hands clasped together.

‘so, where would you like to talk to me about? I got a text from Alice saying it is rather important,’ he starts, his brow creasing slightly fearing something bad.
“Oh, no it’s nothing serious. I think….It’s about Edward,” I struggle to find the right words, but it’s not a hard task eventually.
‘Ah, what about Edward, dear?’

“where can I even start? I mean, I don’t know what to do anymore…everything seems to rush around me like a hurricane!” I feel exasperated and my heart wants to loosen up quite a few things. I would go to Edward but he’s the one I need to talk about, so that doesn’t work.
“Tell me, dear, I’ll just listen to you and you know I won’t tell anyone. That’s what I promised, you and Adam. I won’t tell anyone about your secrets until one of you gives me the green sign.’
I nod, knowing well enough Carlisle had been extremely loyal to us Swans. Maybe too loyal – he’s been keeping a secret for his own family, for our sakes. The man deserves to be on a pedestal.
“I don’t know what’s happening right now and all. I mean I love Edward and our sons unconditionally, but it’s difficult to me to keep a charade in front of him. every time I try to open up to him or actually act like I should by accident, he gets into a full panic mode…and I don’t know why?” tears spring into my eyes. All those things are breaking down on me – raising a fast growing twin without having much time to do when I’m constantly fighting with my boyfriend. And now Victoria’s back also, while I’m trying to deal with graduating and all that. The good thing was, that I fixed most of the ‘Bella-problem’.
“I’m done with the charade, Carlisle… in front of the human who should not know – it’s fine. But in front of my family, my boyfriend and my children? I can’t do it anymore.”
As said, Carlisle just listens to me, breaking.
“It’s okay to cry, Melody,” within a millisecond he’s in front of me brushing my tears away in a fatherly gesture, ”And I completely understand you – it’s quite a tough puzzle now. I could talk to Edward if you like?”
I shake my head, ”He won’t listen. But showing him how I am terrifies him and I don’t want him to leave me and Raven and Blaze again…” I wipe at my tears with the sleeve of my shirt.

“I know, dear. I’m positive Edward has a good reason for behaving like this. But would you like to tell what he should know and what he already knows? Adam told me a few things but not specifically about you. I’m quite curious.”
