“It was bad enough coming back from dinner to find my birth control pill and a glass of water laid out for me on a silver tray.” I turn away from him and put my head down on the pillow. “I have to draw the line somewhere.”

His body goes tense and, though he relaxes immediately, there’s a slight edge to his voice when he speaks. “So you’re on the pill?”

It’s my turn to stiffen. “I am now, yes.”

    By his reaction, I wonder if he wasn’t hoping for a different answer from her.

    For some crazy reason, I keep thinking that they (Esme, Edward, and possibly Carlisle) are hoping that Bella gets pregnant, but that she either gives the baby to Esme (because maybe she can’t have one of her own?) or pretends to surrogate for Esme. (Or can they do a fertilized egg transplant?)
    Hope you get a chance to update soon!
