Description: Set after Twilight. Edward is trying to protect Bella (as usual) by getting her to leave the Cullen's alone.
Dedication: C.E. Hobbit--stupid Twilight Supplier.
Disclaimer: Originally it was "Another Day" from RENT. I own neither RENT, this song nor Twilight. It is set after Twilight. It is very New Moon--I started this before I finished it so I apologize. This is also my first Stephanie Meyer fic--please R&R. Thank you.
"Who do you think you are? Barging in on me and my Coven? Little girl--hey! The door is that way!" Edward snapped, he pointed at her house angrily. "You better go you know. The fire's out anyway!"
The two stood in silence. Bella gazed at him, her eyes confused. He had to lie harder.
"Take that smile! Take your scent! Your sweet whisper, I just can't handle! Well, take your hair in the Sunlight! Your Pretty eyes--Good-bye, Good night! "
He froze. Bella stood watching him, shaking. The façade slowly fell.
"I should tell you. I should tell you. I should tell you. I should---" He took control of his plane once more. "No!"
He put his hands on her shoulders, carefully and looked into her eyes. "Another time--Another place. Our temperature would climb…There'd be a long embrace. We'd do another dance. It'd be another Play."
The realization was hitting her. He was leaving.
"Looking for Romance? Come back, another day! Another Day!"
"The heart may freeze. Or it can burn. The Pain will ease, if we can learn." Bella pleaded. He released her and took a step back.
"There is no future. There is no past. I live this moment as my last." She moved to him. "There's only us. There's only this. Forget regret or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today!" She tried to explain through her tears.
"Excuse me if I'm off track! But if you're so wise? Then tell me--why do you need me?" He snapped at her, taking yet another step back. "Take your Smell. Take your fancy prayer and don't forget: get the Sunlight out of your hair! Long ago---you might've lit up my heart. But its dead--ain't never ever gonna start!"
"Another time--Another place! The words would only rhyme. We'd be in outer space. It'd be another song. We'd sing another way. You want to prove me wrong? Come back, another day! Another day!" He shouted, his eyes now dark--looking black in the moonlight.
Her mind began piecing their conversation together. She shook her head, defiantly.
"There's only 'Yes'! Only tonight. Why must we let go to know what's right? No other course! No other way! No day but today." She pleaded again. Trying to stop him. "I can't control. My destiny. Trust our soul. My only goal is just--to be."
He glared at her, talking to himself, overlapping her plea. "Control your temper. She doesn't see." He turned his attention to Bella's desperate eyes. "Who says there's a soul? Just let me be."
"There's only now. There's only here. Give into love or live in fear. No other path. No other way." Bella began to beg.
He overlapped her again. "Who do you think you are? Barging in on me and my Coven. Little girl--hey! The door is that way!" He pointed at her house again. "The fire's out anyway! Take your Scent! Take that Smile! Take your Pretty eyes! Your pretty smile! Your silhouette..." He was back in his car before the words reached Bella's ears.
He shook his head and sped off down her the quiet street.
She fell to her knees and repeated her self as his words finished. "No day but today. No day but today."
Charlie stopped the cruiser in mid-turn, getting out and rushing to his daughter's side.
"No day but today, No day but today!" She got out before Charlie wrapped his arms around her.
"No day but today. No day but today!" She got out in sobs.
"Another Time, another place. Another rhyme, a warm embrace. Another dance, another way. Another chance, another day." Edward whispered from the safety of his shadows, watching his love's breakdown.
"No day but today." She said to her dad, as if he would understand it.
