Chapter Five: Complications
'I love you, Edward.' I said, hoping like hell this wasn't a dream.
'I love you Isabella.' He whispered back and with that I went into a peaceful sleep where he lurks in my dreams as well.
I woke up to a huge surprise. My body was snuggled tightly onto Edward, and Edward had his arms wrapped around me tightly with his head lying on the top of my head.
I didn't want to wake him so I stayed where I was enjoying this. I wished that we could be lying here forever. Without any worries, but a few minutes later I felt Edward come into consciousness.
'Good morning.' I whispered snuggling closer to him if that was even possible. He lifted his head and kissed my forehead. 'Good morning to you to beautiful.' He whispered as his lips softly brushed my head.
We just stayed like that for a while until I realized that we had school. We woke up early, which was surprising because Alice usually would have to beat the crap out of me with a pillow before I would even budge.
Just then Alice walked into the room, 'Bella its time for sc-' she stopped dead in her tracks, wide eyed, and her mouth in the shape of an O. 'Well its about time!!!' she wailed.
Edward just smiled and buried his head in my hair making his way down to my neck and softly planting butterfly kisses. I shivered at his touch.
'Edward, leave Bella alone now so we can get ready for school.' Alice had a look of eagerness in her eyes. I knew exactly what she was thinking.
Edward gripped me tighter than before and shook his head no like a seven year old that refused to take a bath after playing in the mud. I giggled and Alice just rolled her eyes.
I turned and looked at Edward giving him a kiss, which he didn't expect because his eyes were still closed. His head staggered back a little, but then quickly regained posture and he returned the favor. I pulled away and saw a look of disappointment in his eyes that we didn't continue the kiss any further. I giggled again and before I could say anything else Alice was already pulling me out of the room.
Instead of arguing with her like I would normally do, I was to busy thinking about Edward. 'Bella?' Alice was looking at me like I had gone mental.
'Hmm?' I asked not know what she might have been saying to me.
'Why aren't you fighting with me about me doing your make up?' she asked raising an eyebrow.
'Uhhhh…I don't know.' I lied and she knew I was too.
'Does it have to do with me brother?' she was enjoying this too much.
I knew that she already knew so why was the point in lying to her? 'Yeah…do you think he'll like it? I mean if you would?' I was looking down, fidgeting with the hem of my pajama top, and probably as red as a tomato.
She looked appalled and I just stared at her dumbstruck, 'What?' I said looking up at her.
'Okay one, Edward already loves you, two, he thinks that you're beautiful no matter what, and three, you know that I'm always up for giving a makeover.' She stated matter-of-factly.
I nodded once trying to stop smiling at what Alice had said about Edward. She started doing my makeup a little slower than her normal pace and then I realized that she probably wants to make this perfect so Edward will like it.
About twenty minutes later Alice leaves the bathroom and comes back with clothes in her hands that I already know that aren't mine. 'Alice? What are those?' I spoke with caution as I pointed to the articles of clothing that she held in her hands.
'This is your outfit for today.' She said smiling and handing me the outfit. I took it, trusting her judgment that Edward would like how I turned out. She quietly left the room and quickly brushed my teeth then get changed.
I put on the sapphire blue tank top that hugged my figure tightly, showing curves I never knew I had, and a little if my flat stomach. It showed a little too much of my chest, but I was in too much of a rush, know that if I argued for another outfit we would be late. Then I slipped on the very short shorts that fit perfectly and were a pure white. I walked out of the bathroom to see Alice sitting on her bed. She looked up from her magazine and stared at me with wide eyes.
'What? Is it that bad?' I asked with sadness in my voice. I knew that I could never pull this off. I must look like a complete fool.
To my surprise she said, 'Bella I don't think that Edward will be able to resist you.' I blushed deep crimson and Alice was still staring at me until we heard a knock at the door.
'Are you done? It almost time for school!' Esme called and I started to panic.
'Bella, why are you panicking?' Alice whispered in a worried tone.
'What if he doesn't like how I look?' I was really panicking now.
'Oh Bella, trust me he is not gonna want to keep his eyes off of you.' She stated as she fixed my hair into a messy bun.
She handed me some flip-flops and then I realized something. 'Alice what's with all of the summer clothes?'
'It's sunny out today.'
'Oh,' was all I was able to respond before she pushed me to the door. I opened it and walked to Edward's room.
I walked in his room and saw him walking out of the bathroom. My jaw dropped when he came out. He had on baggy blue jeans that were probably being held up by his brown belt and still didn't have his shirt on yet. He had a six-pack and it took all my will power not to just jump him right then and there. He had a towel around his neck, which told me that he had just gotten out of the shower. His hair was still a little damp, but it looked normal. Still messy but still making him look gorgeous. He had his toothbrush in his mouth and brushing his perfect teeth.
He noticed me in the doorway and we were just staring at each other. I finally decided to break the trance and walked up and gave him a kiss on the cheek. He went back to brushing his teeth, but never taking his eyes off of me.
He finished brushing his teeth and rinsed out his mouth. He turned and grabbed a silky black, long sleeved, button up shirt. He slipped it on but I came up to him helping him button it up. I left a few buttons undone so it showed some of his muscular chest.
He wrapped his arms around me waist and I wrapped my arms around his neck. 'You look beautiful, Bella.' He breathed making me lose any train of thought.
I couldn't stand it any longer. I got up on my tiptoes and pressed my lips on his. I could feel him smile against my lips and I smiled back. Before we could deepen this kiss, someone cleared their throat loudly. I broke the kiss and turned my head, with Edward's arms still around me, to find Alice jiggling some keys.
'Come on you two lovebirds. We're going to be late for school.' Alice whined.
I rolled my eyes at her and Edward smiled and kissed my cheek. We made our way downstairs, with Edward's hand around my waist the whole time. It's a good thing to because I stumbled on the last step. Alice giggled and Edward was trying to stifle his chuckle. I tried to glare at him, but he gave me an apologetic look and gave me a kiss. I smiled at him to let him know that he was forgiven.
We all grabbed or backpacks out of the hallway closet near the front door and yelled goodbye to everyone. As we walked to Edward's shinny Volvo I noticed that no one else was with us.
'Where is everyone else?' I asked.
Edward looked surprised and panicked for a brief moment, but quickly regained his posture and smiled down at me with his arm still around me waist.
'Their all camping with Carlisle for about a week.' As he said this I looked at Alice and I saw a little sadness and pain in her eyes. I was shocked at her expression, but then remembered that Jasper was going to stay with Carlisle and the rest. I gave her an understanding look and Edward looked at us both confused.
'Jasper' I stated and then realization came into Edward's features. He too gave Alice a sympathetic look and we approached the Volvo. Edward drove with me in the front seat holding his hand and Alice sat in the back looking deep in thought. I instantly knew that she was thinking about Jasper.
At that moment I had an idea that I knew I was going to instantly regret, but I had to be strong for Alice in her time of need.
'Um…Alice?' I asked hesitating for a moment making sure I would be able to do this.
'Yes, Bella?' she signed, clearly dazed, probably thinking about Jasper.
'Um…' I glanced over at Edward to see him eyeing me out of the corner of his eye, 'I was wondering…'
'Yes?' she urged me on. I gulped and quickly said what would make her day.
'Iwaswonderingifyouwouldliketogotothemallwithmeafterschool,andtrytogetEdwardtocomealong!' I said in one breath knowing that they probably didn't hear me.
'What?' Alice asked completely confused.
I signed and looked down in my lap, 'I was wondering if you would like to go to the mall with me after school, and try to get Edward to come along.' I whispered.
Alice gave a high pitched, but happy squeal and Edward swerved the car a little after whipping his head in my direction. Probably from hearing his name. He gained back control of the car and pulled into the school parking lot.
'But…' I warned Alice, 'Edward has to go if I'm going to go.' I stated.
Alice had worry in her eyes and I looked at Edward who was looking at me horror struck and with pleading eyes. I mouthed 'please' and his expression softened and he signed in defeat.
'Fine, I'll go…' he turned to me and gave me a mischievous grin, 'If I get to take Bella out on a date.' His eyes looked pleading and had a hint of fear. Fear of what? Was it what my answer might be?
I smiled and him and the fear was lost from his eyes and replaced with excitement. He gave me his crooked grin. 'Of course,' I whispered in his ear and gave him a kiss. When we broke apart I looked back at Alice and saw her jumping up and down excitingly.
We finally arrived at the school, and we all entered our first period class. I was glad that I had first period with Alice. We took our seats and I started about Edward. Where was he planning on taking me on our date? What the hell was I going to do with Alice at the mall?! That one scared me more than it would anyone else who didn't know Alice.
Alice looked completely bored, but I just keep thinking about Edward. The day was passing so fast that I hadn't realized that the fifth bell had rung. Edward was outside my classroom waiting for me like he's done all day. We walked into the cafeteria to be greeted by Alice. We all got into the lunch line and Edward paid for my lunch, and when I protested he just put his finger to my lips and smiled at me.
We walked over to our table and began to talk about our day so far when the bitch, Jessica, herself came up to us.
She glared at me and then looked at Edward with a look of hurt. "Is it true Edward?" she asked in a too innocent voice that just made me sick.
"Is what true?" Edward asked amused and I couldn't help smile a little.
"That you're dating that whore that you call a girlfriend!" Jessica yelled at him while pointing her finger at me. I was seriously pissed now, and Edward looked as if he could kill. "I heard that you and her had a real fun time last night with that bitch!"
I have had enough. I threw down the apple that I had been eating and jumped on the table. I jumped off the table leaping at Jessica. I pinned her to the ground so I was straddling her and just started throwing punches. I didn't care how much damage I was doing to her, and I didn't care how much trouble I would get into. I could smell a rusty and salty smell and I knew that she was bleeding. I finally stopped when I felt Edward's arms lift me up off of her.
He set me down and looked me over to make sure that I wasn't hurt. I only had a few bruises, but other than that I was fine. By the time Edward got done looking me over Jessica had gotten up. Edward gave her a look as if looks could kill.
"If you ever talk to me or Bella like that again, or ever talk that way about Bella again it will be me doing that to you do understand?!" Edward threatened and there was truth in every word that he spoke. Jessica looked scared and that's when I realized what damage I had done to her. She had a black eye, a bloody nose, a busted lip, and bruises all over her face, and a few scratches where I clawed at her.
"So it is true!" she yelled. She is so clueless. I looked at her with an evil smile and turned toward Edward. I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him. I felt him smile under the kiss and I smiled to. I brushed my tongue on Edward's lower lip and he more than willingly let me in. Our tongues danced together and I had my hands tangled in his hair. He had one of his hands around my waist, on my back, while the other was in my hair, pressing me closer to him. I had completely forgotten that we were in the cafeteria. We broke apart when we heard people whistle, whoop, and I even heard some people say "finally!". I blushed but then realized that Jessica was still there. I turned my attention to Jessica and it took all I had to not laugh at her expression. She looked like she had just seen aliens dancing at a local disco dance! Ha!
"By the way Jessica, we were so over last night. So don't act so surprised." Edward stated and gave me a loving kiss. Jessica looked pissed and then stormed off out of the cafeteria.
"I love you, Bella," Edward breathed. I smiled and relied,
"I love you, Edward."
