"Please Bella? You have been thinking about something and it is worrying James. Just come over and we can talk about it with Rose." Alice pleaded over the phone. She was right I was thinking about something. I had been James' girlfriend for three months now. And I just realized last week that I loved him. I was in love with him and it felt so good to say it in my head. Maybe Alice and Rosalie will know what to do.
"Fine, Alice. But only if Rose is there and we're alone, I don't want anyone over hearing. Just us three there." I said firmly. It was Friday and I was coming back from grocery shopping. I had no work besides the library since school is out.
"Okay, I know you went grocery shopping so do you have and cold food?" She asked excitedly and I knew she was texting Rose while I was on speaker.
"No, so I'm coming now." I sighed. She squealed and I told her I was coming into the parking lot. I slowly made my way into her building. When I did reach her room she pulled me in.
"Alice what the hell?" I said, annoyed. She giggled and waved me off. We sat in silence as we watched the TV. Though my mind was thinking of James and his perfect smile. The way his gentle caresses calmed me when I was getting a bit pissed off. The way he would hold me as I spent the night at his place or he would spend the night at mine.
Then the doorbell buzzed insistently. I knew Rose was here. Damn, I thought I would have more time than this. I heard them talk quietly but it was too low for me to hear. I was nervously bouncing my leg up and down at the thought of telling Alice I loved her brother. She had told me after he told me his past that I had to be careful. She told me words that I never want to hear again.
James had told me that in his past he was a player. He had fucked many girls and he treated them like trash. He dated whores every night but had stopped about a month before he met me. Alice had told me that she didn't want me to get hurt because James took breaks from sluts and hookers to have a 'real' relationship before having sex with them a couple of times and throwing them off to the side and leaving them heartbroken.
"Hey, Emmett's worried and he demanded that I get to the bottom of your…" Rose trailed off not finding a word.
"Oddness," I offered. She nodded sadly. I took a few moments to regain myself. It still bothered me that James could be like that with me but still I told him I wouldn't have sex with anyone unless I was married to them. Wouldn't he leave if he wasn't getting any?
"It's about James," I began nervously as I fidgeted with my hands in my lap. Alice jumped up and jabbed a finger in my face.
"You're in love with my brother!" She yelled. Then she started to bounce up and down like she did when she was really happy. Rose had a lazy smile on her face.
"I knew it! Why does it bother you that you love him?" She asked. I shook my head.
"I don't know how to tell him and in the very least if he doesn't feel the same way." I said softly. Rose and Alice were quiet and when I looked up they had smug grins on their faces.
"Guys this is no time to be smug? What the hell are you two smug about?" I yelled because damn it I was frustrated.
"James loves you too silly!" Alice giggled and collapsed in a fit of laughter. I huffed.
"How do I tell him?" I asked. Rose and Alice devised a plan that would be perfect. I left feeling euphoric. I told James to come to my place in an hour. I stopped by a liquor store and got champagne. I went to Wal-Mart and got the needed supplies that were needed. I got home and made everything as fast as humanly possible. After the chocolate covered strawberries were cooling I ran to my room and stripped off my clothing. I found some blue lingerie and a matching robe and slippers.
I put the strawberries in the fridge and lit candles. I picked a very sad movie to watch. P.S. I love you. I think it would get my point across. It was getting close to the time James would be here so I grabbed the strawberries and champagne and set it on my coffee table. I fluffed my hair and then heard the back door open and close. I didn't hear James call out and I didn't hear any movement. That's weird.
"James? I'm in the living room!" I called but my heart was starting to pound. I heard heels clicking in the kitchen. I knew right then and there that it wasn't James. A tall skinny figure stood in the doorway. I looked at her in panic. She looked like she could kill me. She had flaming red hair and a short ripped black leather dress on with high black heels. She had a cruel smile on her beautiful face.
"Isabella Marie Swan?" She purred out while slowly making a step near me. She had a high pitched voice.
"That's me," I stuttered out. Her smile turned into a feral snarl.
"I'm here to get rid of you. I give you a choice. Leave my James alone or die." She drawled out. My stupid lovesick side spoke.
"Never," I whispered. She growled and glared at my word.
"Fine then, well James will come to me when he finds you dead." She sneered as she lunged at me. Something pierced my stomach and I cried out. She stepped back and smiled slowly. She pulled the knife out and pierced above the wound and left the knife there.
"I'll leave you here to die a slow and painful death." She said as she turned to leave.
"You'll never get away with it!" I gasped out through the pain.
"How will they know? I have gloves on." She said and then her green eyes gleamed. "How about I burn you? I like that much better!" She laughed manically. She turned one of the lit candles and threw it at the drapes. The caught on fire. She knocked a candle over on the couch. Then without another word she grabbed the lighter from off the table and left.
"I'm going to burn the front of the house too!" She called before leaving. I tried breathing but it wasn't working. The smoke was more pungent now that everything was catching fire. No one was going to save me. I couldn't do anything as I lied there in a pool of my blood.
"Bella! Where are you Angel?" I heard James' frantic shout over the blaring flames. I tried to speak but my mouth was to dry. I gave up and started crying. He wouldn't be able to get to me in time. The flames from the couch licked my skin and I tried to move from it but cried out in pain as I put too much pressure on my cut. Just then James came into the room. His eyes looked wild as he bent down to me.
"I'm so sorry." He looked down at me with pain as he scooped me into his arms. Part of the roof came crashing down and he moved out of the way. He sprinted out of the house. He put me into his car. Emmett's car rolled into view and he jumped out. I could hear sirens from a distant but they were getting closer.
"Everyone's on their way. The ambulance is first." Rosalie said gently as she walked over to where we were. Emmett had a look of total conflict on his face.
"She's so pale." He choked out as tears welled in his eyes.
"Don't cry Emmy Bear." I said weakly and I coughed. I could still hear the roar of flames.
"You're almost dead and you try to comfort me." He sighed disgustedly. I couldn't speak anymore as a wave of pain crashed over me. The lights and sirens were coming down my street and soon I was being settled onto a gurney. James looked upset at what he was being told.
"He's my fiancé! I need him here." I rasped out. James looked smug as he climbed in and held my hand. The paramedic injected something in my IV and I felt the meds trick in my veins.
