Disclaimer- I don't own these characters
A/N yeah I hate these things, okay so I just want to tell you that Edward is Edward Masen and he doesn't hang out with the Cullens and Hales. Yeah it's kind of weird.
"BELLA!" I jumped at the sound of Alice scream and fell off the bed. I sat up and frantically looked around trying to find her. She was standing in the door way clutching her sides and biting her lip. I pulled the comforter of the bed and wrapped it around me while glaring at Alice.
"What was that for?!" I yelled, but secretly I was glad she woke me up, my dream was starting to scare me. I felt as if I knew those green eyes, but yet I could place them.
"I wanted to know if you were awake" she giggled; I stood up and sat back on the bed.
"Well obviously I am now. So why did really want me to wake up" I accused, her eyes widened innocently as she shrugged. I knew my friend long enough to know she has something devious planned.
"Either we do this the hard way or we do it the easy was it's your choice" I said, she froze and started to back away. I got off the bed and crept towards her.
"Bella you don't want to do this, what would Alexander think" she said. Alexander, he wasn't here when I woke up, did my parents finally succeed in getting him. They would know I was at Alice's, they could have come and taken him away or maybe I'm being stupid and he's fine. I shook my head and realized Alice was gone. I stomped my foot and ran after her.
I followed her outside and to the back yard. She was hiding behind Emmett, Alex was at Emmett's feet playing with a baseball. I ran to Emmett and put my hands on my hips and jabbed him with my finger.
"Emmett move your gorilla sized body out of the way" I yelled, he looked like a deer cough in headlights. I moved closer to him, he squealed like a girl and ran away before I could get him.
"Wow Emmy way to be a man" I said, he held his hands up in surrender.
"Can you blame me, you can be really scary" he whimpered
"Mommy not scawy" Alex stood up and put his hands on his hips just like me. I smiled and looked down at him.
"That's my boy" I said "So Alice where did we leave off before you ran away?" I asked. I was secretly enjoying this.
"Nothing Bella" she said in an overly sweet voice. I laughed and decided to spare her for now.
"Why did you get me up again?" I asked
"Oh right, get in the shower" she commanded, I raised my eyebrow and gave her a questioning look.
"Just do it"
"Fine" I surrendered. I walked back into her house and up the stairs to her bathroom. I closed the door, undressed and got into the shower. I let the warm water relax my tense muscles, steam enveloped me. I was knocked out of my trance-like state when Alice impatiently pounded on the door. I laughed and turned off the water. I rushed to get out of the bathroom, I did not want to face Alice's wrath.
I opened the door slowly and saw Alice with her hands on her hips. I smiled impishly at her and she glared in return.
"What took you so long?!" she yelled, I put an indifferent look on my face even though I was about to make a run for it. I raised my eyebrow and smirked.
"Would you rather me not be clean" I said, she frowned and through my clothes at me. I smiled and started to dress. She had given me a t- shirt and basketball. I was surprised, she never gave me t-shirts. I knew there was a catch, but I didn't feel like arguing with her again. She put my hair into a pony tail and put on minimal amount of makeup.
"Your done" she said, she stepped back and smiled.
"Whatever lets go. I hate surprises" I glared at her; she smirked and pulled me out of the room down the steps.
"Bye Carlisle and Esme!" I yelled. Alice glided out of the house with me behind her.
"Emmett lets go" She yelled, Emmett came running around the corner with Alex on his shoulder. They jumped into the car and we were off.
We finally arrived at Alice's destination. I was surprised to say the least; I couldn't fathom why she would take us here. We each got out of the car and walked up the stairs to the school. I looked at Alice she had a weird expression on her face. I shook it off and followed her through the school to the practice fields in the back.
"So… are you happy" she said, I looked around the fields. A group of people were playing baseball. I smiled and ran to them.
"Hey can I play?" I asked, they looked up from their game and stared at me.
"Are you joking?" someone asked, I looked up and saw Edward walking towards me. My mouth dropped, did they think I couldn't play. Suddenly an idea popped into my head, but first I have to take care of Edward.
I walked closer to him.
"What's your problem" I accused, he looked shocked at the hostility in my voice, but I could care less. He was a jerk to me.
"You're a girl, you might break a nail" he sneered, my eyes narrowed, my hands clenched into fists.
"That's not what I was talking about!" I yelled, he was making me angry and that never turns out good.
"Then what" he asked
"Why are you such a jerk to me and only me?" I asked. I steadied out my breathing. He glared at me and turned back to his friends. I stepped forward to tell him off when a hand held me back.
"No let me lil sis" Emmett said, the look on his face told me I shouldn't say no. I nodded to him and he stormed off in Edward's direction.
"Bewa" I turned around and saw Alex running towards me. I got on my knees and opened my arms to him. He ran into then and held onto me.
"Hey baby do you want to play?" I asked, he nodded his head and jumped out of my arms and ran to the pitcher's mound. He stood tall and picked up a glove that was twice the size of his hand. I picked up my glove and ran to him.
"Let's try this glove" I laughed, he giggled and shook his head.
"No I big boy, I can pway" he said
"Okay" I turned to leave but quickly turned back and switched his gloves.
"You cheat" he pouted; I patted the top of his head and pulled out a ball from my bag.
"Okay who wants to play with us and who wants to be stupid and pout in the corner with Edward" I yelled, the guys looked at each other and smiled. They ran towards us.
"How about you are on our team and he's on the other team" Mike said, I smiled at him and he got a distant look in his eyes. I shook it off and ran to the pitcher's mound. Edward ran out of the shadows and prepared to bat. I smirked this could be fun.
I through my famous fast ball at his head, he ducked and the ball missed by a centimeter. He deserved it, I thought. I put on my fake concern face.
"Are you okay" I called, he grunted and prepared to bat again. I decided to be nice, I through my fast ball again but this time it was perfect. He swung and hit it, he ran to first. I grabbed the ball and through it. Edward slid into first, but got out. I smirked and turned to see Emmett walk out of the shadows with a bloody nose. I dropped my glove and ran to him. He stumbled over to a tree and collapsed at its base.
"Emmett what happened" I said, he looked up and I could see a black eye forming.
"Ask Edward, apparently he doesn't like to be called an ass" he sneered, I was fuming. He hurt my friends, he hurt me next he's going to hurt Alex. I clenched my jaw and walked towards Edward. He saw me coming and started to laugh.
"Alice take Alex to the car" I yelled, I didn't wait to see if she did, I wasn't letting Edward get away this time.
"Did you enjoy what I did to your friend" he laughed when I finally reached him. I calmly pulled my fist back and punched him with all my strength in the jaw.
"Shit" he yelled, he clutched his jaw and his eyes went from bright green to coal black before my eyes. He glared at me, but didn't fight back.
"What too scared to fight me" I sneered
"What'd I ever do to you demon girl" he yelled, anger fired up inside of me, he would pay if he doesn't stop soon. I put all the anger and hurt from my parents into an ice cold glare, he seemed stunned momentarily, but quickly hardened his face.
"What did you ever do to me, how could you ask such a stupid question?" I yelled, he stepped back, but didn't let up on the lock he had on my eyes. My emotions started getting the better of me and I could feel my eyes start to water.
"You hurt me just like everyone else in this world" I whispered before running off in the direction of the car. I couldn't look back at him; it would just cause me more unwanted pain. He is the only one I've ever acted like that to.
Maybe I should have been nicer.
No that's exactly what he wants; he wants you to let him into your life so he can take away the only happiness you have left.
No he wouldn't do that, would he?
I was having an internal battle over something that was out of my control, if he doesn't like me than I can't force him to change his mind. It sounds so simple, but why does it hurt so much.
I can't like someone I have Alex and I can never let him down. I'm the only one who cares for him, but if I mess up he'll be gone forever. My mind was racing at the possibilities of the future.
"Bewa" Alex said looking at me with wide eyes, I wiped away my tears and leaned down to be face to face with him.
"What baby" I asked, he lowered his gaze to his light up Spiderman sneakers.
"What wong, did he do something bad" Alex asked, he still wouldn't look at me. I put my finger under his chin and lightly lifted it to meet my gaze. His eyes were wide with fear; I closed my eyes and sighed. He saw me and now he's scared of me. How could I be so stupid, I should never have lost my temper in the first place.
"Come here" I said softly, he looked through his shaggy hair at me and shook his head. I pouted and he finally gave in. He walked into my arms and wrapped his tiny arms around me.
"I'm sorry" I whispered kissing his head. A smile formed on his face.
"Okay can we go now your moment has gone on too long I think I might be sick, besides I want to play video games with Jasper" Emmett whined, I scowled at him and through my flip-flop at his head. It missed him by an inch and hit Alice in the head. She turned to Emmett and stocked towards him. He screamed and held his hands up in surrender as he backed away.
"But Bella throw it" he complained
"But you ducked instead of letting it hit your freakishly big head" she yelled, She continued to move closer to him. I picked up my shoe off the ground where it landed and walked to the vending machines to get a snack for me and Alex. I stepped up to the machine when I felt a tap on my shoulder.
A/N hehe it ended with a cliffy, but don't be mad at me. Okay so I want to hear if you liked it, didn't like it or want to tell me what I should change. I'm always open to suggestions of ways to get better.
