I'm very sorry about the wait, but my life has been a little... hectic lately. Sorry.
"What could a beautiful girl like you possibly be worried about?" Emmett's voice held a note of shock. "Come on... Tell me." He bent down and cradled my chin. His hands were soft and warm where they held my chin... It was nice.
It was a Monday. Rainy and dreary in true Forks fashion. I wasn't feeling a hundred percent after the weekend but I'd elected to come to school anyway. Bella would be here and I had something I wanted to ask her.
"I'm... fine." I reached down to straighten out my sweater though. I never touched my clothing. Confidence was my armor of sorts. I knew that I was beautiful... the true reincarnation of beauty, and no one could tell me otherwise. That protected me. No one would ever break that shell. I knew that, and it made me feel better about myself, even when everything around me was falling. "Emmett... come on."
He grabbed my waist. "Not until you tell me whats wrong." Emmett leaned against the nearest set of lockers. "I can wait." His hair was mussed from our nightly activities, but he didn't really mind. He liked it that way... I think Emmett is saw it as ownership. He was mine... that would never change. His large, granite frame was casually leaning against the locker in a picture of timeless elegance. His backpack was settled at his feet in a nonchalant manner.
"I'm afraid." I murmured into his chest. Emmett listened quietly. "I want to talk to Bella, but how do you talk to someone who you hated two nights ago?" Emmett kissed my cheek.
"How do you talk to anyone? Rose... shes family now." He leaned us against the lockers again. "Talk to her like you talk to Alice."
"Sh." Emmett kissed my lips and pushed me towards the grounds where I could smell
Bella was standing.
"Bella!" I trotted over to the human girl. Her large, brown eyes were slightly taken aback as she surveyed my form.
"Rosalie..." Bella's voice was low and cautious. "How are you?"
I smiled at her. "I'm okay, but I wanted to talk to you..." I trailed off and looked into her eyes. Hesitantly, I wrapped my arms around Bella's fragile waist. "Thanks." I murmured.
