Hey! So like I promised, here's the second chapter of the continuation to MSATNS. Without giving away too much, the expansion of MSATNS ventures through the journey of Bella and Edward's relationship. Mentioned characters (like Arsiele & Marcus) from the one-shot will play a bigger role, & there'll also be new characters introduced. And remember Jacob, aka the douche that broke Bella's heart? Yeah, he'll play one of the largest roles this time. And don't forget Bella & Rosalie's bet! That'll be referred to in the next few chapters. ;)
This chapter picks up the day after Edward & Bella got together. You'll see the reactions of their peers when they seem them as a new couple, as well as a surprise. Is it bad? Hehe… won't tell you. Ya just gotta read it.
Chapter 2: Your Arms Around Me
If you told me a year ago that I'd be the girlfriend of a boy that isn't Jacob, I would have completely laughed at your face. Back then, Jacob was the ideal boy that I wanted to date. He was my crush, my vent buddy, my first love… I shook my head. I question myself as to why I had those feelings for Jacob in the first place. All he did was make me feel worthless, even though he's never told me himself. However, it was his actions that told me everything. It showed me that no matter how much I've suffered, he was never the one for me. He belonged to Leah. With the boy I truly love by my side, I believe now that Leah and Jacob are the perfect couple, just like everyone else sees them as.
As I wait at the bus stop, waiting for my usual bus to get here, I can't help but smile at the amount of excitement waiting to be bubbling out of me. How could it be that, just yesterday, Edward Cullen became the boyfriend to me, Bella Swan? Who would have known that the boy that I've had a crush on for months would be the one that I'd fall in love with? Who would have known that said boy would even want to reciprocate my feelings? I wouldn't have known! And neither did he!
The moment that I let my feelings for Edward revealed is the moment that he had set me free. He made me see that I didn't have to be afraid to fall for someone. And he said it himself. Someday, he promised, he'd be able to say those three words back.
I love you.
I know Edward. He'd never go back on a promise. If he promises to love me back, then I know he will. I don't even care that he's still transferring schools in a few months! I refuse to let that simple fact bring me down. I want to float in my happy cloud for just a little while before reality crashes in. I want to savor this rare feeling of bliss.
Which reminds me… how can I forget that blissful moment when he said that he wanted to be my boyfriend?
After sharing another intense kiss, we lean back against the painted wall of a breathtaking mural and sigh in contentment, letting our fingers tangle against each other. I have no idea where Rosalie is now, or if she's still even here. She may have taken a bus without me noticing. If she did, I'll make sure to thank her tomorrow. She's given this moment of privacy between Edward and I. If she could do that, I'll have to repay her somehow. Hmmm… maybe I could get her the notebook that she wanted in Art Box when we went to Don Quiote, but only if it's still there. It's been months since we've last been there.
"Bella?" I turn my head slightly to face Edward. He has a lazy smile on his face, his body leaning a bit more next to me. I smile. This is the first time that I've ever been this close to a boy that I like (Or, in this case, love). Knowing myself, I sure as hell don't want to mess this up.
"Yeah?" I lay my head against his shoulder, my body leaning against him closer until the side of our bodies were pressed against each other.
"Does this mean…" I lift my head to see him gazing at me, his eyes sparkling with amusement. I know that look. He's trying to imply something to me, and I know exactly what it is. He doesn't even have to say it. His eyes are all it is that gives me the message.
"Will you be my girlfriend?" I've never given a thought that a boy would ask me that question again. Ever since my ex-boyfriend broke up with me over a year ago, I've been wondering whether or not I'll ever be in a relationship again. I don't have to wonder anymore, because I'm getting exactly what I've wished for.
"Yes," I whisper. He gives me a giant grin as he leans over to kiss me again.
This is a no-brainer. Life is getting better for me after all.
The sound of a bus driving by alerts me back to reality from my happy memory. I immediately notice that it's the bus that I always take and rush to take my bus pass out of my pocket. Once the bus stops in front of me and opens its doors, I flash my bus pass and quickly scan the bus for an empty seat. I have to fight my temptation to faint when my eyes land on something that I didn't expect.
Edward never takes the bus at this time. By the time I get to the front of the library, which is the place we usually hang out in the morning, he doesn't usually come until a few minutes after. On rare occasions, he gets to school before I do. There's never a moment that we'd ride in the same bus together to school.
Calm down, Bella. Don't you dare have a heart attack now!
Damn! Where's Alice or Angela when I need them? I'm happy to see Edward, but I'm just afraid of doing something ridiculous in front of him that'll cause me to be an embarrassment to the other passengers in the bus. Without Alice to tell me to keep calm or Angela to hit me in the head if I start drooling in front of him, I'm dead.
Relax. This is Edward. He won't judge you for what you do. After all, he is your boyfriend.
I sigh. My conscience is right, as always.
Making sure that I won't trip or make an embarrassment of myself, I slowly walk towards where Edward is sitting. Luckily, I notice that he's taken the seat close to the window and that the seat next to him is unoccupied. It's almost as if he left it empty so he could wait for a certain someone to sit on it…
Well duh! He's waiting for you! Great. Blonde moment! Why didn't I see that sooner?
Once I reach Edward, I look at his mouth, which is curved in a wide smile. Wow, if I could just lean in and kiss those delectable lips…
"Hey Bella." I feel someone tug on my arm and, in less than five seconds, I find myself sitting on the seat next to him. Warm, soft lips are pressed against my cheek. I blush. Edward and I have been boyfriend and girlfriend for less than a day and already he's treating me as if I've been his girlfriend for months. This sort of reminds me of that first episode of Victorious when Beck kissed Jade on the cheek. Then again, Jade is a bitch. Yes, I said bitch. What? You don't think I can swear? Well I just did.
"Hi," I whisper. I don't trust my voice right now. Again, I'm afraid of embarrassing myself.
He swings his arm around, letting it rest on my right shoulder. "I missed you."
I giggle. "It's only been like, what? Fifteen hours since we last saw each other?"
"Fifteen hours too long," he grumbles.
I press my lips quickly on his. "There. A token of my affection."
"Well it isn't much."
"If you behave, there'll be more when we get to school."
His eyes go wide, and before he could say something, I kiss him again, lingering a bit longer than the last. When I pull away, his eyes go back to the soft expression he had when I first entered the bus. That expression reminds me of Peeta whenever he looks at Katniss. I'd slap you silly if you have no idea what I just referred to.
His eyes droop slightly, his head leaning closer on my shoulder.
"What time did you get up?" It looks as if he's about to fall asleep, and I'm sort of worried that he could get detention if he ends up falling asleep in class, especially in Mr. Mats. I shudder. I haven't caught anyone sleeping in Mats yet, but who knows? Edward could be the first. And I seriously don't want to see my boyfriend get detention from Mats.
"What time did you sleep last night?"
"I dunno… twelve?"
"What?" I shake his shoulders. That meant… he's only gotten about six hours of sleep. That's not good. His brain won't function well if he gets less than eight hours of sleep. Wow. I sound like my mother.
"It's nothing," he murmurs. "I went to sleep around ten, but I couldn't get to sleep because I was thinking of you."
Awww… just how much could this get any better? He's already a sweet romantic! It's like we're Jacob and Leah! Whoa. Hold it, Swan. Don't compare you and Edward to Peaches and his girlfriend. I'd end up regretting it later.
We stay quiet for the rest of the bus ride, letting Edward's head rest on my shoulder. It feels nice to be free to have this relative closeness with each other. Before all this, I was internally freaking out every time we accidentally brush hands against each other… or any other time I accidentally made contact with him! Because of this relationship, I don't have to be afraid to do all these things. Yeah, I still blush whenever he touches me, let alone kiss me. So what? That's natural for couples to do. Going from friendship zone to relationship zone was a huge step to me. But no regrets right? And besides, being Edward's girlfriend does have its benefits.
Every now and then, I still catch Edward dozing off. When he closes his eyes and doesn't open them for a moment, I shake his shoulders slightly so he'd wake up. Out of the four times that it happened during the bus ride, my simple interference works. And when opens his eyes after dozing off, I kiss his cheek in hopes that he'll be able to stay awake long enough until we get to school.
Luckily, the bus gets us to school in the amount of time that it usually takes if there's no traffic. I shake Edward's shoulder, alerting him that we're at school. He lazily nods as I hold his hand, leading us to one of the exits out of the bus.
The first thing I notice, as usual, when I get off the bus, is that Alice, along with her mom, and Angela are waiting for me. Alice immediately notices me exiting out of the bus and gives her iPod touch back to her mom. Alice waves at me when I get there, while Angela is staring at me with wide eyes. Alice looks at Angela, wondering why she looks shocked. Angela points at the place where my left hand holds Edward's right hand. Confused, Alice realizes that I'm not alone. Like the domino effect, she too becomes surprised.
"Those are your friends, right?" Edward asks me, pointing to Alice and Angela, who still have their expressions of disbelief.
I nod. "Those are two-thirds of my crazy wacko friends. Rosalie is gonna meet us later at the library."
"Wasn't that the blond girl that walked with you yesterday?"
When we finally reach Alice and Angela, who are walking slowly towards us slowly with their shocked expressions, I sigh. "Okay guys. Lemme have it."
Angela raises the library book she has in her hand. I know she's about to hit me with it. If you're questioning why, it's because… well… it's our thing. "I should hit be hitting you, but I won't."
"Because Alice would say so."
Alice chuckles. "You're right about that."
Angela sulks. "Awww…"
Alice grabs her arm. "C'mon, Ang. Let's go inside before you really do decide to hit Bella with your book here." As Alice and Angela begin walking towards the entrance of our high school, I start to follow them. I barely make two steps forward when I feel Edward grab my wrist, pulling me back.
I turn around. "What?"
He hold one of his hands up, signaling me to stay where I am. He puts some space between us and turns so that his back is facing me.
"Huh…?" I'm confused. I have no idea what Edward is hinting me to do.
"Get on my back," he tells me over his shoulder. "I'll give you a piggyback ride."
"What?" I say again, this time in a yelp.
He chuckles, turning around and making his way back to me. He takes my hands into his, holding it reassuringly. "Relax, Bella. I'll be fine. Just let me do this for you." He looks at me with puppy dog eyes. Aw shucks! If I can't resist them from Rosalie, then certainly I can't resist them from my boyfriend!
"But… no one has ever given me a piggyback ride. Except my dad." I try to let my eyes stare at the ground, but Edward wouldn't have any of that.
"Hey." He places a finger under my chin and slowly raises it so I'd be forced to look at him. "Well, that's great, right? Just let me be the first boy to do this for you."
"But look at you!" I exclaim, emphasizing my point. "And look at me!"
I sigh. "I'm not as light as Kamille. And I'm not sure if you're as strong as Rhea." Kamille and Rhea are two freshmen girls in our classes that, in more than a few occasions, have seen Rhea give Kamille and Rhea give them a piggyback ride. I find it amusing. However, I find it more amusing that they're not the only people that do it.
"So?" He kisses me on the cheek. "I don't care how heavy you are. Consider this an early birthday present."
"But my birthday's not till September!"
"Just let him do it already!" Alice yells at me. I forget to notice that my friends were watching my conversation play out with Edward.
He smirks. "See? Even your friends think I should do it."
I roll my eyes. "Fine. I'll do it. But only for you and for them."
He beams. "Alright!"
"You have to tell me if I'm hurting your back. I don't want you having a cramp later and blaming me for it."
He nods. "Okay. Now get on my back, Bella." He turns around and motions me forward. Thinking that this whole thing is silly, I stand behind Edward and wrap my arms around Edward's neck. In a matter of seconds, I find my legs wrapped around Edward's waist and his arms planted on my ass. Holy shit… Edward Cullen is groping my ass. Take that, bitches!
"Edward!" I squeal, surprised by his actions.
"Relax!" He angles his head so he could kiss my cheek again. "Think of this as an interesting way to let everyone find out we're a couple."
Now that he mentions it… he's right. Normally, with news as big like having Edward as my boyfriend, I'd be putting it as my status update on Facebook. However, I decided to do something different this time. Why let everyone find out on a social website when I can let them see it for themselves? It makes it more better because I'd get to see how priceless the looks on their faces would be. I can already imagine the amount of swearing Rhea would do when she sees this.
From the side, Alice and Angela are laughing their asses out from what Edward is doing to me.
"You're lucky!" Angela says through her laugh. "At least you don't have to walk all the way to the library!"
"Don't be a spoil sport, Ang," Alice says. "Now lets really go inside so you can get whatever snacks Bella has for you today."
I shook my head.
I smile mischievously. "Maybe…"
Angela shares a look with Alice. With a nod, Alice quickly drags Alice inside.
Edward begins walking as I ignore the look from other students that are already in school. I don't care what they see. Don't couples do this too sometimes?
"What was that about?" Edward asks sometime later. We were already near the bulletin boards near the SG building and so far, Edward is showing no signs of discomfort of carrying me.
"Oh nothing," I reply. "It's a thing between me and Angela. She likes Cheetos and whenever I bring them to school as a snack, she raids me for them in the morning."
"And I'll assume she does that with your cookies too?"
He chuckles. "You have weird friends."
"Don't we all?"
"I wish my friends are as weird as them."
"Because I'm weird too."
"So am I!"
"Which makes us the perfect couple."
I grin, letting my lips brush against the back of his neck. "I think so too."
I tuck my head back on his shoulder, letting my hands stroke the strands of his hair that I could reach. I think he likes it, because I swear at one point I could have sworn I heard him growl or purr. Weird, right? It's unbelievable that it took one day for us to change from being friends to being in a relationship. If we could do things like this to one another, then who knows what other new things we'll try?
The first thing I hear when we're close to the library is a bunch of "Oh's!" from our classmates. When I lift my head up to see which of our classmates are already there, I almost burst out laughing from the shocked expressions from Karen, Marcus, Lex, Grace and Taylor.
"Alright. Let us have it," Edward says once he reaches the benches. Once he stops, I unwind my legs from around his waist and leap off from his back. After giving him a quick kiss on the cheek as my thanks, I stand beside him and we hold hands in front of our classmates.
"W… How…" Grace is at a loss for words, but I notice the smirk that's on her face when she sees me and Edward's intertwined hands. She, along with my best friends, Arsiele and Kelly, are the few people that knew that I had a crush on Edward.
"It just happened," I tell Grace simply.
"All right!" Marcus shouts, getting up from his seat and making our way towards us. He gives us both pats on the shoulder. "Wait till Mats sees this!"
I groan. "Don't remind. We'll be like Samantha whenever he teases her about Avan." Avan is Samantha's boyfriend who often hangs around with Samantha here in front of the library in the morning.
"It can't be that bad," Karen assured me. "It's not like your teacher's mean or anything."
That makes me groan again. "Oh trust me, you'll see how Mats can be like if you spent one day in his class."
"Is it that bad?"
Taylor scoffs. "Bad? I bet you wouldn't even last one period in Mats class!"
Karen rolls her eyes. "Boys."
"Tell me about it."
"Hey! I'm a guy!" Edward protests.
I giggle, giving Edward a kiss on his cheek. "Sorry. I meant boys that are jerks."
"Oh. Well thanks." He swings his arm across my shoulders and leads us to the benches, where we sit down and put our backpacks aside.
"So…" Lex turns off his 3DS and turns to face us. "When did you two get together?"
"Yesterday," Edward quickly replies. "It's a long story."
"Not really," I mutter. "I just told Edward that I had a crush on him, he told me that he likes me back and… it just happened." I turn to Edward and we share a look that only lasts for a few seconds. This is only the edited version of how we got together. I'm not going to tell them how I confessed to Edward that I was in love with him and how I told him everything I've felt for him over the last several months. That would be gossip that I bet the whole class of 2015 would hear about.
"Oh," Lex says. "Well that's nice. Glad you two are together then."
I grin. "Thanks, Lex."
A minute later, I feel my phone vibrating in my pocket. I sigh. I don't even have to look at the caller ID to know who's calling.
"Hey mom." My mom always wants to make sure I got to school safely in the morning, so she calls me on my cell around the time that I arrive in front of the library.
"Hey Bella. You coming home late today?"
I shook my head. "Nopes. I'll be home at around 3:30, okay? You know how buses take a long time to get here."
"Sure. Be safe, okay?"
I roll my eyes. It's typical for my mom to worry about my safety. "No worries, mom."
"Okay then." Once my mom says her final comment, I end the call and shove my phone back into my pocket.
Edward wraps his arm around my waist. "You called your mom?"
I nod. "She worries about me during school, so I call her in the morning to tell her I'm alright."
"Did you tell her about us yet?"
I bite my lip, then shake my head. "Not yet. My parents have that whole no dating policy till after college thing."
"Aren't there any exceptions."
"Only if the guy is an honor roll student like me."
"But I'm not."
"Exactly." I lay my head back on my shoulder, letting the comfort of his touch ease my sudden discomfort about my parents. "But I'll try to put in a good word for you. You are gonna be my boyfriend for a while."
"Yeah… ummm… you see…"
"What?" I lift my head back up, panicking about what Edward might say next. Based by the tone of his voice, I can't tell whether or not this'll be good or bad news. Shoots. What if it's bad news? Wait… what if he regrets this? God, please let it not be that…
Sensing the look of panic on my face, Edward quickly kisses my cheek. "It's nothing bad, Bella. It's actually something good. But can we move somewhere else first?"
"Just somewhere where Taylor and the others won't hear us. It's kind of private and I only want you to know about it first."
I grin. "You trust me?"
He chuckles. "Of course we do. Trust is a key to a perfect relationship."
Awww… how sweet. It's official. Edward is a keeper.
Don't go to conclusions yet, Bella. Edward's still gonna transfer schools. And you know long distance relationships don't usually work unless there's a lot of commitment.
With a nod, we stand up and move to a tree next to the side of the library. It's closer to where we want to be when we got back, and it's also secluded enough so Taylor and the others won't overhear us and end up spreading gossip across the school. In my mind, I laugh. For just typical guys, they can spread news faster than a car going 60 miles per hour.
"What good news did you want to tell me?" I ask Edward once we stop under the tree and make sure that we were away from earshot.
"Ummm… do you remember last year when I told you I'd be moving away?"
I nod, remembering that memory well. Why would I forget? It's been on my mind constantly since he first told me! Something as big as this would never leave my mind until it happened.
"Of course I do," I murmur. "It means that we only have till like the last week of May."
Oh no! Maybe it will be bad after all. I brace myself for the worst.
"I talked to my mom yesterday about the whole issue…"
"And told her if I still had a chance to change my mind…"
"She told me that I did, and I told her that I wanted to stay…"
"She thought about it for a moment, and she said that I could, but under one condition."
I raise one eyebrow. "What's the condition?"
A small smile appears on his face. "I can still attend school here if I spent one school year at the school that I'm transferring to."
I gasp. "So, that means…"
He nods, the smile on his face curving wider. "I'll only have to be gone for sophomore year. I'll be back by the time we're juniors."
It takes me several seconds to process this new information in my head. I have one word: damn! This might be the best news I've ever heard from Edward ever since I found out he was moving. A day ago, I lost all hope of ever seeing him again when I knew for sure that Edward was transferring to another school and would be gone for good. I thought that, for the first time, that cheesy term of YOLO would finally have to come to use. And by YOLO, I don't mean I don't want to get drunk, get a hangover and have a one-night stand all on one night like what adults do nowadays. I have one messed up generation. Then there's the fact that, last night, when I chatted with Edward on the phone while doing my current events for World History, I had some insecurities of the new relationship that we were venturing into. I was afraid that, because of the long distance relationship that Edward and I will have to have after the end of this school year, we could break up. After all, not a lot of long distance relationships last. Long distance relationships can't last forever, right? I know they only last because of faith and trust between the couple.
I do trust Edward, and I do have faith in him too. But how much trust and faith do I have in him? What if it's not enough for us to stay together?
"I do have faith and trust in us, Bella," Edward tried to assure me last night. "But you know what we do have? We have each other. As long as I know that you think of me the way I think of you, then we'll be okay. I told you yesterday that when the time comes, I'll love you the same way that you love me. And I meant it. I'll eventually find a way to fulfill that promise." And I believed him, because I know that Edward will never break a promise.
"Thank you," I whisper as a response to what Edward just told me. What else could I say that wouldn't let me end up making me look like an idiot? "You have no idea how relieved I am for hearing that." I have to add the last part so Edward understands.
Edward smiles. "I told you, Bella. You can always trust me."
He's right. I trusted Edward with my whole heart, and because of my trust, he's found a way for our relationship to be okay. Sure, we'd have to endure long months without each other when he's gone for my sophomore year, but I have to tell myself that it'll be alright. He won't be gone forever.
We embrace each other for a minute and share a long kiss, filled with the happiness that we now have. All of the worry that I had a few minutes ago is gone. The happiness that Edward always brought me is back, but it's not stronger than ever.
I chat with Edward for a few minutes before we make it back to the front of the library. By now, the people who usually hang around that area are all here, including Jacob and Leah.
Don't let Peaches get to you… Of course I won't. Now that I have Edward, I can worry less about him. But that doesn't mean I'm still mad at that damn bastard.
"Ho!" Rhea shouts when she sees Edward and I holding hands. "When did that happen?"
I giggle. "Yesterday."
"Long story," Edward and I say at the same time, then burst into a fit of giggles.
I become even more happy to see that Rosalie is here with Angela and Alice. She must have came when Edward and I were talking. Rosalie comes over to me and gives me a huge hug.
"See? I told you everything would work out between you and Chef," she squeals. Yeah… I think we'll be keeping the Chef nickname when Edward's not around. It's something that we've become accustomed to use.
I grin. "It has."
"Bella!" I pull away from Rosalie's hug to see another one being given by Leah. Her small frame is easy for me to swing her around once.
She smirks at me. "I can't believe you have a boyfriend!"
"Well I do," I tell her when I set her back on the ground.
"I didn't know you and Edward would be that close." She bumps her hips to my side teasingly. "You know what comes next, right?" She waggles her eyebrows.
Oh god. I know what she means. Months of hanging around with Rhea and her friends Amber, Ariel, Crystal and the rest of the crew, along with Jacob, has made her have a dirty mind like that. "Leah!"
"I didn't need to know that! We're fourteen! It's not like you and Jacob are gonna do it anytime soon!" It's hard for me to say Jacob's name out loud, but since it's Leah, I have to. I don't want her to start questioning me.
"What?" She wrinkles her nose. "I may hang out with Rhea and them, but I'm not that dirty minded. Ask me that question ten years from now and then we'll see."
I chuckle. "Deal."
Leah goes back to Jacob, where they smile at each other and start eating each other's face. I have to turn away and look at my friends so I don't let everyone else see the scowl on my face.
"Peaches is still a douche," Rosalie says softly, swinging an arm around her shoulder. "But you have Edward."
"True…" I agree with her.
"And she's the best girlfriend I'll ever have," Edward adds, wrapping his arms around my waist and kissing my cheek lovingly.
"You've only been my boyfriend for one day!" I say, laughing. "And I bet I'm the only girlfriend you've ever had."
"How would you know that?"
I shrug my shoulders. "Just a hunch."
"Well your hunch is right. You are my first girlfriend. And a serious one at that. Am I your first boyfriend?"
I shook my head. I can't tell Edward lies. It's in that theoretical couples book that Rosalie keeps telling me about. "Just one other. But it lasted four days."
"Shut up!" I swat his shoulders playfully. "But you are my first serious boyfriend. Believe me at that."
"I will." He kisses my cheek again. "I can never stay mad at you."
While Edward nuzzles his head into the side of my face, I notice out of the corner of my eye Jacob glaring. I internally gasp when I see that his glare is pointed directly at us. Or more of Edward, that is.
What the hell? What is that about? I glare at Jacob, but I've never seen him glare back. He's just never noticed my glares to reciprocate back.
Douche. I bet he just can't accept that fact that I have a boyfriend now. What? Did he think I'd stay forever alone? Hell no!
"What's wrong?" Edward asks in a worried tone, sensing my uneasy silence.
"Nothing," I murmur, looking away from Jacob and back to Edward. "Just thinking."
He shook his head. "I noticed too." What? So I wasn't the only one that noticed Jacob's glare.
"Yeah," he says as if he read my thoughts. "Don't worry about it, Bella." He turns me around so he could kiss my forehead. "He's just jealous."
"Yeah! He's mad that a pretty girl like you is taken!"
"I'm not pretty," I mumble.
He scoffs. "Whatever he told you, you're not." He pulls me closer to him so our lips were only centimeters apart. "When the time comes, you can tell me what he did to you. But don't deny the fact that you're beautiful. It's who you are that makes you beautiful."
"Have you been listening to One Direction too much?"
He chuckles. "No, but I'm just saying. I could have any girl I want, but I picked you. And I'm lucky enough that the girl I chose is interested in me."
"You aren't lucky. You just didn't know that you were loved and you didn't know it."
"Yeah…" He presses a kiss on my lips and pulls away a few seconds later. "That's just how lucky I am."
Edward and I end up talking to my friends until the bell rings. When it does, we gather our things from the bench we left them on earlier and walk to our period two.
"Get ready for a day of hell," I tell Edward. "Our teachers will be giving us a whole load of shit when they see us together."
"I never picked you for a girl that swears."
I laugh. "Oh trust me. Stick with me and you'll be hearing me swear on a daily basis. I'm the hidden Rhea that you never knew about."
"See? That's why you're my girlfriend."
With wide smiles from the both of us, we continue heading off to class, wondering what the hell we have in store for the day.
So there you have it! That was the second chapter of the continuation of MSATNS! The next chapter will have the rest of the reactions from B & E's classmates, along w/ their teachers. Hmmm… I wonder how it'll go…
If you're wondering why Jacob glared at Bella and Edward, that will be answered eventually. This is just the beginning of the problems Bella will have w/ Jake. Just because she's w/ Edward doesn't mean Jake won't bring any personal problems w/ Bella. Remember, he'll play a bigger part of the fic later on. Bella's story w/ Jake will be indulged into later on in the fic to, so stick around.
Besides that, I'll also make a banner for MSATNS. I'll give you a link for it by the next chapter. Idk when chapter 3 will be updated (Remember? Chapters will be 5,000-10,000+ words in length), but I hope it's soon. I'll be juggling on updates w/ that & BOD.
