11. In a goose bump infested embrace
I looked down at the floor as I walked down the street. I was trying not to loose control. I had been on the verge of loosing that ever since I chose to tell her to walk away from me.
I still wanted to be with her so bad. I still want to bury my face in her hair. I still want to smell her beautiful scent. I still love her. I still want her to know that.
Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I had to go see her. I had to tell her that I love her. I had to see her one more time, and tell her how much I love her.
I took off running, paying no heed to my relatively new family, and remembered my biological mom. I missed her so much. I missed everything from my human life.
When I ran, I ran under the cover of trees, not wanting anyone to see my vampire speed.
When I reached The Hilton, I started searching for her smell to pinpoint what room she was in.
When I did, I rushed to the door that she was in and listened hard for Jacob's thoughts.
I needed to remember to tell Bella never to wish for that trait if she ever ran into a genie.
Jacob was a sleep, so I knocked softly on the door. I heard feet, moving, but couldn't get the thoughts.
The door opened slowly, cautiously, revealing a tired, puffy eyed Bella. I could tell that she had been crying. I couldn't hear her thoughts.
"What are you…?"
She couldn't finish the sentence because my lips crashed into hers, finishing it for her. She pulled away from the kiss.
"What are you doing here?"
"I couldn't take it. I had to see you again."
She looked at me with a look of incredulity.
"No, no Edward. I spent one and a half years having to see you. However, did I? No. I couldn't. It just does not work that way."
I thought, remember how I used to call her that all the time I scoffed and put my hand on the wall, essentially pushing against it.
"Damnit Bella!" I whispered angrily.
She jumped back a little bit, then grabbed the room key off the table and stepped out into the hallway, closing the door behind her.
"Please, just, take a walk with me, talk to me."
