Chapter 4

Even though I had been terrified out of my mind, I had never felt so alive.I didn't think I could go back to the old, boring Bella now that I had a taste of this life.

I stood watching Edward as I listened to the thumping of my heart. All this excitement had filled me with lust. I wanted to feel him, touch him … to kiss him … have him.

He eventually removed his hand from my mouth and took a step back, unpinning me from the tree. I grabbed hold of his shirt and pulled him back to me. "Kiss me." I whispered to him. I couldn't believe I was being so bold.

He turned to look at me in shock. He shook his head and removed my hands from his shirt. "Not now." He whispered going back into defence mode as he looked around the woods for any sign of danger.

I wasn't willing to give up that easily. I grabbed hold of the neck of his t-shirt and pulled his head towards me. "I want you to kiss me." I pouted.

He leaned in and placed a small peck on my lips.

Anchoring my hands around the back of his neck, I held him there before he had a chance to move away. I moved my lips to his, forcing my tongue inside his mouth.

I could feel his resistance for a second before he was pushing me against the tree. His hands cupping my face as our kiss deepened.

My whole body felt as though it was on fire. I needed him.

I roughly ran my hands through his hair, as my body rocked towards his.

"Touch me." I mumbled into his mouth.

"What? No." Edward said as he pulled away from me. He took a step backward, trying to catch his breath. "I won't have sex with you up against some old tree while covered in Mike's blood if that's what you were thinking."

"I don't mind." I whispered, taking a step towards him. I ran my hand through his hair as I placed a trail of kiss down his neck.

He gently pushed me away from him. "But I do. You deserve better than that."

"Isn't that for me to decide?" I said taking a step towards him. I popped open two buttons on my shirt, revealing my bra. I bit my lip as I smiled coyly at him.

Edward moaned. "God, you're going to be the death of me, woman."

I smiled as he shoved me back against the tree. His hands roamed to my breasts, massaging them through my bra. I rolled my head back in ecstasy as he moved his head down, placing kisses all over my chest.

He slipped my bra to the side and took my nipple in his mouth. I bit down on my lip to stop myself from crying out. My body bucked towards him, silently screaming for more.

He had turned me into a panting, hot mess, and I loved it.

I grabbed his hair and pulled his head to mine. His eyes were drunk on lust as he gazed over me, looking as though he wanted me, needed me. I wanted him to always look at me that way.

Our lips crashed together as his hand moved back to my nipple, pinching it between his fingers. I moaned loudly into his mouth, unable to hold it in.

I started pulling up his t-shirt when I suddenly saw a glint of silver slide around his throat.

We both froze at the same time, wondering what was happening.

I breathed a sigh of relief when I pulled my head back and saw Emmett standing behind him. "I could have been a Plugger, and you both would have been dead."

"Right— you've made your fucking point. Get your knife off me." Edward growled at him.

Emmett removed the knife and Edward took a step back. "Divert your fucking eyes." He shouted as he turned around and pushed him to face the other way.

Emmett gave me smirk before he turned.

I leaned against a tree, trying to catch my breath. I had a huge smile on my face. What I had just experienced with Edward was amazing, but I wanted more.

Edward turned to look at me with a big smile plastered on his face, too. He shook his head. "Cover up. We have to go."

Edward kissed my cheek before he took my hand in his. He took a step forward and shoved Emmett. "Let's go."

Emmett fell into step with us, laughing to himself. "My little sister's a sex kitten. Who would've known?"

I looked at him in disgust. "That's just creepy."

The two of them laughed at me.

I wasn't amused.

We walked along the forest quietly for a few minutes before Emmett turned to Edward. "I warned you she would follow us."

I cringed. Did he have to bring that up right now?

Edward glared at me. "I told you to go home."

I gave him my cutest smile, hoping it would distract him from his anger.

"You could have gotten yourself in trouble or worse." He ranted. "When I tell you to go home I want you to do just that." He stopped walking, pulling me to a halt. "Do you hear me?"

I squirmed out of his grasp. "Yeah … I hear you. The thing is, my dad and I never did the whole 'the man's the boss' thing. I wasn't brought up like that." I said shaking my head and walking on.

Edward grabbed my arm and spun me around. "Yeah well, Charlie's not here now, and you're married to me." I flinched at his words. I knew my dad wasn't here, and I didn't need him to remind me. "It's my job to keep you safe, and I can't do that unless you listen to me." He stared at me, looking for a response. I didn't know what to say. I wasn't about to cower to him whether he was my husband or not.

He sighed in frustration. "Bella, please, just tell me that you're going to listen to me next time … If I ask you to stay in the house then, it's for a reason."

"Yeah and what was today's reason? You didn't want me to see you kick the shit out of Mike?" I shouted back at him.

"No, I didn't want you to see that." He muttered.

"And what exactly did you mean by 'how many times do I need to tell you to stay the fuck away from her?' Since when did you start giving a shit about me?" I shouted at him.

"I've always given a shit about you." He sighed.

"Yeah well, you had a funny way of showing it." I snapped.

Edward made a grab for my hand, but I dodged out of his reach and turned around, marching along the direction in which we were headed.

"Nice." Emmett said sarcastically. I heard his thumping steps behind me. "Hey baby B, wait up."

"Fuck off Emmett." I snapped at him. I was pissed, and I just wanted to be alone.

I heard Edward laughed.

We continued walking through the forest for about another twenty minutes before we came upon Jasper with the four people that fled from the house. I slowed down as we approached them, not wanting to meet them on my own. I had no idea who any of these people were, and the voice in the back of my head told me they could be working for Mike. After all, he had come out of that house.

Edward caught up to me. He placed his hand on the small of my back to reassure me it was okay. "I need to go change out of these clothes and wash away Mike's blood. I want you to stay here until I come back."

"Why can't I come with you?" I frowned at him. Why was he going to leave me with strangers?

"Because it's safer for you if you stay here. We won't be long. I promise."

I glared at him, but he didn't seem to notice. "Alec, can you keep an eye on Bella till we get back?"

"Sure." The boy with the short brown hair answered as he glanced at me. I think he was the one that answered the door.

I sighed, sinking down at the base of a tree a few feet away from the group. I watched as Edward, Emmett & Jasper walked away. I couldn't help, but feel that they were leaving me here to be murdered. I stared after them until they were out of sight. I hoped they wouldn't be long.

The group continued on with their conversation as if I wasn't there, and from the way they were talking they all seemed to be friends.

I sat drawing pictures in the dirt with a twig, trying to kill time. After a while, I got the feeling that someone was watching, and when I looked up the redheaded girl was staring at me.

"So you're Bella." She said when my eyes met hers. Her tone sounded harsh, she spoke to me as if I were someone she disliked.

"Yeah, I guess I am." I muttered.

"As in Mike's Bella?" She chuckled.

"What?" I asked, turning to look at her in disgust. "I've never been Mike's anything … Nor will I ever be." I spat.

"She knows that." Alec assured me. "Just ignore her. She's just snarky cause she needs a fix." He went into his pocket and pulled out a bag of white powder, and tossed it towards her.

I watched as she emptied a small amount of the powder onto the top of her hand. Then she held one side of her nose closed while she snorted the powder through the other. She threw her head back when she was finished as her eyes rolled back in her head.

I stared at her.

I had never seen anyone do that before. "What is it?" I asked, not caring if I sounded dumb.

"It's just coke." She said waving the bag at me. "You want to try some?"

"No, she doesn't" I looked up to see Emmett walking back towards us.

"I can speak for myself." I snapped at him.

"Here." The girl said, tossing the bag towards me.

Emmett caught the bag in mid-air. "I said she doesn't want to try it." He shouted at her. He stuffed the bag into his jeans.

I glared at Emmett; he was just as bad as Edward was with his over protectiveness.

"Glare at me all you want B, but Edward would go fucking mental if you put any of that crap up your nose."

"What's it got to do with Edward?" The girl asked with a frown on her face.

"Bella is Edward's wife." Emmett said smirking at her.

"No fucking way! Why her?"

"Hey!" Emmett yelled at her. "Show some fucking respect; she's Charlie's daughter."

I had no idea what he meant by that, but it shut her up for a while.

It seemed to take forever for Edward and Jasper to return. By the time, they arrived it was already starting to get dark.

I jumped to my feet as I saw them walking towards us. "Can we go?" I asked Edward exasperated.

He looked over at Emmett who shrugged. "In a minute," he said to me before he walked past me to Alec. "It's safe for you to return to town, but Mike is out for blood, so make sure you have an airtight alibi."

Alec got up and pulled Edward in for a man hug. "Thanks man."

"No worries." Edward said. "If you need anything you know how to contact us."

"Will do."

The others got up, and everyone said their goodbyes. As the girl passed me, she stopped to look at me. "We should hang out sometime."

I stared at her, unsure what to say. I suppose I should have said something like 'yeah, that would be great', even if I didn't mean it, but I didn't.

She glared at me when I didn't respond and hurried after her group.

"What was that about?" Edward asked, eyeing me.

I shrugged. I wasn't about to get into it with him. I just wanted to go home.

Emmett went into his pocket and pulled out a bag of Coke. "Tanya was trying to get Bella high."

Edward angrily grabbed the bag from him, glaring at me.

"Don't look at me like that." I yelled at him. "I didn't ask to try it, and I didn't even say I would." I turned to Emmett and slapped his chest. "You're nothing but a fucking troublemaker." He just laughed at me.

He thought everything was a joke.

I turned and started marching through the trees.

"Stay away from Tanya." Edward warned me.

"I will." I snapped.

"Home's this way." I turned to see him pointing to the right. I sighed and started stomping in that direction.
