"MIKE! NO!" I screammed. "Bella! I love you! Just relax and stop resisting and it will start to feel good, trust me!" I closed my eyes and started to cry and tried to push him off. I felt him roll off of me. I opened my eyes to find Mike laying on the other side of the yard and Edward Cullen standing beside me with a murderous glare on his face. He helpped me up and put his coat around me and walked me to his car. i sat down in the seat and looked out the back window. Mike hadent moved from the same spot he was in. I jumped out of the car and ran over to him. I dropped down on the ground beside him. "Mike! Are you ok?" I asked franticly. "Mike! Say something!" he rolled over. "My chest." he said. i felt a cold hand on my sholder. "Bella, come on. It's just a few broken ribs." Edward said as he picked me up off the ground. He carried me over to the car and sat me down. I don't even know why I was worried about him, probably because I coulden't handel going to another funeral. Edward stood their for a moment and in a flash he was gone and standing where Mike was, holding him up in the air by his neck. "HOW DARE YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT TOUCHING HER LIKE THAT AND THINK YOU COULD GET AWAY WITH IT!?! I SHOULD KILL YOU RIGHT NOW!" Edward shouted. At that I ran over to Edward and placed my hands on the arm that was holding Mike up. "Edward, please don't. He's not worth you going to jail over." I pleaded. Edward pondered that for a moment, then with a sigh he dropped Mike to the ground. He hit the ground with a slight thud. Edward and i both turned around to find the deck and back door crouded with people who were curious about what all the shouting was about. Edward wrapped his arm around my sholders and guided me back to his car. He opened the door for me. I tried to get in the car gracefully, but ended up slipping on the gravel and giving everyone a peek up my dress. Their were wolf wistles from numerous guys in the croud. I hopped up and jumped in the car. I could feel my face getting red. Edward walked around and smoothly slid into the drivers seat. He started the car and before i knew it, we were racing down the street. He drove me to my house. As I was getting out of the car, he asked "Bella, would you feel safer if you stayed with us tonite?" "Um.. Yeah, if you don't mind." "Of course not! It's no trouble at all."
"Okay, well let me go get some clothes first, you can come in if you like."
I turned and walked towards the house. He was beside me in an instant. "Whoa! How did you get over here so fast?" He looked deep in thought for a moment as he racked his brain for an answer. He simply replied "I'm just a fast runner I guess. Besides, I wanted to be there to catch you if you fell in those killer high heels agian." I chuckled. I fummbled with the lock on the door and finally got it open. I cauciously stepped inside and flipped on the switch. "Just make yourself at home and I'll be right back." He walked into the livingroom and turned on the T.V. As soon as I got in my room, I took of my shoes and threw them across the room. I changed into a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt. As I was packing my clothes, I replayed the party in my head. A wave of emotions washed over me. I started hyperventlating. Edward was there in an instant, his cold, hard arms around me. "Bella! What's wrong? Are you okay?" Tears started streaming down my face. Edward just held me there, slightly rocking me back and forth. "Shhh, Bella, it'll be okay." he chanted over and over. I finally calmed down. i looked up at the marble angel that was holding me in his arms. He met my stare and leaned down for a kiss. Our lips met and sent my pulse racing. I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him closer. Finally I had to come up for air. "Are you finished packing?" He asked, trying to control himself. "Um... Yeah." I replied, still dazed from the kiss. Edward lifted my bag without any trouble at all even though I packed enough clothes for two weeks. We got in his volvo and, yet agian, were speeding down the road. "Ow!" i gasped when i touched my arm. "What's wrong?" Edward shouted. I looked down at my arm and, in the dim moonlight, I coud see a huge bruise. "Nothing, I'm just alittle bruised, thats all." He glared out the windsheild. "I should have killed him. I swear, the next time I see him I'll-" "Edward, no. He won't bother us anymore. I think you scared him off for good." I said. He still glared out the window. I quickly leaned over and kissed his cheek. I am still astounded by how pale and cold his family is. He sofned his glare abit. So i leaned over and started to kiss his neck. He smiled and said, "Your no fair, I want to be mad but your making it fairly difficult." I giggled and slid back over to my side of the car. We pulled up In the driveway and Edward grabbed my huge duffle bag in one hand and picked me up in the other. He carried me inside and sat me down. Esme ran over and hugged me. Edward guided me up to his room.
