Twisting & Turning
"Good morning Palm Beachers. And what a good morning this is. A beautiful weekend full of surf, sand, and sun lies ahead us and to start off this weekend right we'll be playing Kokomo by The Beach Boys."
"Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck," I moaned to myself and reached over to my nightstand to lower the volume of my radio alarm, which I failed to turn off last night.
I had nothing planned for the weekend, and waking up at seven on a Saturday morning wasn't how I wanted to start it. Rose and Alice were both gone with their families on their summer vacations. I still have a week till we leave for the Bahamas. And Edward. Edward was m.i.a.
It had been a week since the bonfire and I had only briefly spoken to Edward a few times. Which was normal. But, I hadn't seen him or heard from him in the past few days, which wasn't normal.
I wasn't used to these feelings when it came to him. Whenever I think about him I get anxious. Nervous. And whenever I think back to him coming to the bonfire with Jessica, there's like this emptiness in the pit of my stomach that just really sucks.
I must've dozed off for awhile, because it was nine o'clock when my mom came barging into my room.
"You up?" She asked me as she opened my blinds. Sun pouring into my dark room.
"I am now," I moaned.
She walked away saying, "Edward's downstairs. He's been here for awhile now. Just about to barge up into your room, but from the look of things, I figured that if he wanted any opportunity of getting you to forgive him for whatever he did, he better stay away from waking you up. You can thank me later."
I laid in bed, momently stunned. Edward was here? Once the shock left, I jumped out of bed and raced to the bathroom to wash my face quickly.
I walked into the kitchen and there he was, sitting at the island and eating away my mom's french toast.
"Hey," he said, mouth full of food.
I looked at my mom and she looked at me. She was confused, and gave me a look that said 'we'll talk about this later'.
"Your dad left early to go play golf. I'm supposed to meet Beth for a run, I'll see you kids later," she left the kitchen smiling, and when I heard the front door close, I looked towards Edward.
"Have I mentioned how much I love your mom's french toast," he said eating away. Mom's french toast was practically famous amongst my friends.
"Edward, what're you doing here?" He didn't give me any warning that he would be coming over. Yeah, he would periodically come over on Saturday mornings for breakfast, but he always would text me the night before.
He shrugged and said, "Thought I'd surprise you."
There was a long, awkward moment before he yelled, "Surprise."
I took his empty plate to the dishwasher and grabbed a cup of coffee for myself.
"All right, so I know you're pissed about the bonfire," he said suddenly.
"Why would I be pissed?"
He snorted and gave me a look as if he knew exactly what I was thinking.
"Fine. Yeah, it was shitty of you bringing Jessica, but whatever," I shrugged it off and went back to drinking my coffee.
"That's what I was trying to tell you that morning. Me and Jess had been hanging out a bit so we just decided to go together. That was before what happened."
I was pissed. He was acting as if he had to explain himself. Like he was a boyfriend who just got caught cheating. That thought infuriated me even more.
"Well, it's really not a big deal. I went to meet up with Jake," I said lightly. Take that asshole.
"Jacob Black," he spat.
Jake and Edward weren't the best of friends. They tolerated each other merely because of the fact they both played football together.
"So what, you're hanging out with him now?" Edward questioned me, his eyes narrowing.
I tried to hide my smirk, because obviously he was pissed. Now he could feel like I felt when I found out he was hanging with Jess. Suck it douchebag.
"We'll see what happens," I smirked at him.
Upstairs my phone was ringing loudly, so I decided to run up and get it. "Be right back," I told Edward.
When I reached my iPhone and saw the name Jacob Black, I let out a laugh and slid to answer.
"So funny you called, I was just thinking about you," I answered. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Edward walk into my room, but I turned my back to him.
"Oh really?" He laughed.
"Mhm. So what do I the pleasure to hear from you first thing in morning Jake," I flirted, just to rouse up Edward knowing he was listening like a hawk.
"I wanted to see what you're doing tonight."
"I don't know, what am I doing tonight?"
He chuckled, "I'm going to pick you up at six, we're going to grab some dinner, then I was thinking we could catch a movie or something."
"I guess I could do that." Whenever I talked to Jake, I just automatically smiled. There was this charm to him that just brought a smile out of me whenever I was around him. Out of the guys out of my class, including Edward, he was probably one of the most genuine ones.
"You better be ready at six Bells," he teased.
We talked a little longer but then Edward coughed dramatically behind me, reminding me of his presence in the room, so I said a quick bye to Jake. When I turned around and looked at Edward he was giving me a death glare, and if looks could kill, I would most likely be in pain.
"What?" I asked innocently as I started to make my bed.
"What the fuck was that?" His voice was controlled but laced with venom. He was upset, but so was I kinda.
"That was me, agreeing to go on a date with Jake," I spoke to him slowly, as if he was a child, which he was.
"Are you trying to get back at me for Jessica?"
"What?" I yelled.
"I brought Jess to the party, so now you feel like you need to get back at me by going out with Jake," he said as if it was so obvious. Asshole.
"Don't think so highly of yourself," I spat. "This has nothing to do with you. I've always liked Jake and he's a really nice guy, so yeah I'm going out with him. And it's none of your business."
He looked at me as if I was crazy, "Of course this is my business! I have every right to know."
"Why? This has nothing to do with you," I told him.
His eyes went wide and he practically yelled, "This has everything to do with me! There's something between us and you can't be a bitch about it."
"It was one kiss! It meant nothing," I shouted.
He calmed down for a second before he started walking towards me and said, "Then tell me if this means nothing."
Then his lips were on mine.
A/N So what do you think? Maybe leave a review to let me know? I'm honestly curious to see what you guys think of this. I really am enjoying writing this, so let me know if you like it or even if you don't like it. Spanks
