New Chapter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, here is the newest installment in Crossed Paths written by yours truly.

This chapter will contain lyrics. The song is "My Immortal" by Evanescence.

Some major patheticness comes from Edward in this chapter and some cruelty towards him from Bella. Readers remember she's really pissed off because she thinks he cheated on her.

That's it. Au revoir!

Disclaimer: Do I own Twilight or the Covenant? That's right I do not own it and never will. Sadly I also don't own "My Immortal" by Evanescence.

Chapter 6: Stop Growling Like A Retarded, Rabid Dog (The Bird)

Recap: I grabbed one of my Cd's and popped it in the stereo.

"What are you doing?" Edward inquired.

"Making you listen," I replied curtly, my back still to him.

It took a moment for the disc to play. Out came the first blaring chords of "Going Under" by Evanescence, for it was the first song in the CD "Fallen."

I pressed the button to change songs and stopped at number four, "My Immortal."

Amy Lee's soft, beautiful voice floated out of the speakers, soothing my tense muscles.

I'm so tired of being here

Suppressed by all my childish fears

And if you have to leave

I wish you would just leave

Because your presence still lingers here

And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal

This pain is just too real

There's just so much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light

But now I'm bound by the life you left behind

Your face, it haunts my once pleasant dreams

Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal

This pain is just too real

There's just so much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

I've tried to tell myself that you're gone

And though you're still with me

I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

The song ended the piano tinkling in the end. I stopped the CD and turned off the stereo to conserve energy.

I turned back to Edward. I swear I could see unshed tears in his dark eyes.

"Is this how you feel?" he practically chocked out. I shook my head.

"No Edward, I don't feel like this. Actually, I don't feel like this anymore." I let my eyes glaze over, as I remembered those dark months.

"I felt like that when you first left. I was so damn broken, I actually sometimes felt suicidal. I wanted you back so badly." Then I laughed harshly. "Ah yes, I had wanted to die instead of being so far from you."

I looked at him again, my face twisting into a bitter smile. "I loved you so much. I wanted you; I wanted everything to do with you. I was practically obsessed with you, Edward. Then you betrayed me. That was under the belt, the last straw, the breaking point. As the French would say coup de grâce."

I paused and looked at his stricken expression. I snickered at it. "Anyway, that was my death. The end of the weak, gullible Bella." His expression hadn't changed yet. It still looked stupid to me. I let out another somewhat cruel giggle. "Do not be troubled, though. I consider it an act of compassion from you. For coup de grâce does literally mean 'blow of mercy'."

At that he started groveling. "I'm sorry, Bella. I swear I never cheated on you. You were always my first and only love. My lips belong to you. My body and soul belong to you, love."

He knelt at my feet, clasping his hands together as if praying. I looked at him trying not to laugh. He looked like a handsome, but pathetic emo that is praying.

"Please stand up, Edward. You seem so pitiful and stupid," I chortled. He stood up, still pleading with his eyes.

I stopped laughing. I also stared into his eyes. "No, I won't eve forgive you."

His eyes seem to harden slightly. "I will earn you back, Isabella Marie Swan. That pathetic excuse of a warlock won't be part of your life anymore."

I choked when he said "warlock". "What do you mean by 'warlock'?" I said.

He smirked. "Lover boy still has not told you? Ha, I'm winning."

I glared daggers at him. "Tell me Edward," I ordered.

"Will it earn you back?" I shook my head. "Well, then he can tell you himself."

I growled at him. He chuckled much like he used to when we were together.

"You'll never earn me back, no even by some miracle," I sneered.

The great sadness returned to his dark eyes. How pathetic.

A knock came at the door. I forgot about Edward at that moment and walked toward it to open it. Behind the door stood Sarah, looking flustered.

"Hi, Bella," she stammered.

"Hi Sarah. What's up?" I said, somewhat amused by her red face.

"Um… I wanted to ask if you are going to the movies tomorrow with Reid and us?" she murmured.

"Yes, I am. Why do you ask?"

She blushed again. "Well I thought you were mad at Reid."

I stared at her in puzzlement. "Why would you think that?"

"Well he is sitting outside your room and looking miserable. I asked one of the girls that were with him where you were and she said you were in here with your ex, Edward. I assumed that you were back together again."

I laughed almost cruelly. "Hell, no! He was trying to explain his betrayal, and he has not been successful." I smirked. "I do not believe he will be successful anytime soon, or for that matter never."

Sarah's face cleared. "That is great. I was afraid you were not going to be together."

I smiled at her. "Can you ask Reid to come back in, along with the rest of the people outside, please?"

She nodded and did as I bid her to. In came Reid and the Cullens.

He wordlessly walked to my side and took my hand in his. I totally appreciated the warmth of his hand and the way he made me feel cared for.

I heard Edward growl behind. I turned to him and gave him the bird, which was other wise known as the middle finger.

He saw it and he stopped growling. His face became a mix of confusion and wonder.

"Did you just flick me off?" he asked.

"Yes, I did and I will again if you don't stop growling like a retarded, rabid dog."

I heard laughter coming from the Cullens, Reid, and Sarah. I turned and grinned at them. Only one of them wasn't laughing. Rosalie seemed worried about something. I decided not to look into that too much.

Sarah looked at her watch and gasped. "I need to be leaving now. I'm sorry, Bella. Bye," she kissing my cheek.

I glanced at my own watch. "Wow, it is late. It already is ten o'clock. Sorry to cut this reunion late, but I am sure we can continue it tomorrow."

Alice looked dejected, and it pained me to see her usually smiling face seem so unhappy.

"Alice do you want to sleep here?" I asked.

Her face brightened, but looked a bit uncertain. "Won't you roommate become angry?"

"No, because I have none," I said. She squealed in happiness and jumped up and down.

I tuned to Rosalie. "Do you want to stay too?" She scrutinized my face, then she nodded.

"Okay, so you guys need to leave. Yes even you Emmett, although I consider you an honorary girl," I teased. Emmett chuckled.

The boys then started filing out of the room. Edward left first because he had no one to say goodbye to. Next left Jasper after he parted with Alice. Then Emmett when he finished kissing Rosalie. Finally Reid left after kissing me softly on the lips.

I waved to them goodbye and closed the door.

I turned back to Alice and Rosalie.

"So do you guys want to have a real sleepover, with gossiping and makeovers, although you both don't need them."

Alice jumped up in elation. "Oh my gosh, we should watch chick flicks and talk about boys. Then we can do our hair and makeup-"

I interrupted her by laughing in amusement. "Slow down there, Alice. I'm sure we can do all of those things, but first we need to put on pajamas. I believe mine will fit Rosalie, but I am not sure about you."

Alice laughed this time. "Don't worry, Bella. I brought my sleepwear with me along with my clothes for tomorrow. I even brought Rosalie's clothes."

"Your visions?" I asked, raising an eyebrow. She nodded grinning. I smiled back.

Suddenly her eyes glazed over and she fell back. Rosalie ran to her and held her up nearly when she touched the ground. I hurried to them and knelt down to Alice.

She suddenly became rigid and screamed in terror.

"Alice! Alice answer me!" I yelled, agitated. Alice came to herself at the sound of my voice.

She looked at me and gripped my hand fiercely. "He wants to kill you. Don't let him kill you." Her eyes still seemed unfocused as she said this.

She fell back again. She lay still for a moment, then she convulsed again, shrieking some words. It sounded like "he is burning her."

Jasper came running inside, followed closely by the rest of the guys. Jasper pulled Alice out of Rosalie's arms somewhat harshly.

Within seconds, Alice opened her eyes and burst into sobs. She sobbed in Jasper's arms for a period of time, until she realized that we were there.

When here eyes found mine, she began to dry sob again. "Bella, he… will… kill… you because… of him…" she said in between sobs.

"Because of who?," I asked.

She turned to where Reid stood and pointed at him. "It is because of him."
