Last time on The Foreign Hottie
He laughed, his whole face was beaming. "I wouldn't be surprised if it was you who came and attacked me while I was asleep."
I snorted and stared at his little twin sized bed. Then the thought suddenly occurred to me, like a light bulb suddenly turning on. "Oh Edward!" I exclaimed happily as I ran up to him to throw my arms around him. "That's a brilliant idea!"
He looked perplexed as he held me. "What is a brilliant idea…you attacking me?"
I grinned. "No silly," I replied as I flicked his nose with my finger playfully. "Every night I'll just come down here and sleep with you."
He frowned. "You might get caught though."
I shook my head. "I won't," I contradicted. "I'll come after Charlie and Renée are fast asleep."
He chuckled as his nose softly touched mine. "Alright…" he breathed, still sounding a bit unsure.
He leaned in to kiss me. But I backed away from him and headed toward the stairs. "I'll come when Charlie and Renée are snoring."
"You're such a tease!" Edward hollered as I run up the stairs with a huge smirk on my face.
The annoying alarm clock kept beeping. I felt Edward tugging on me, trying to wake me up.
"Bella," he whispered in my ear. "You have to wake up now, Charlie and Renée will wake up soon."
I groaned. I hated this new system Edward and I had. Every night I would sneak down into the basement so that I could sleep with him. We would set the alarm to 5'oclock so that I could go back to sleep in my own bed.
Edward had told me that he slept better when I was with him and same with me. If Charlie or Renée ever found out what we were doing, they would kill us. Or worse, send Edward back to London; which would be too unbearable to handle.
The sun hadn't even risen yet and I couldn't bring myself to open my eyes. I felt so warm and comfy next to Edward under the blankets. "Ten more minutes," I mumbled.
I didn't hear what Edward had said, but I knew he didn't object. I guess Edward must have fallen asleep since I woke up when the sun was shining through the little basement windows.
Then I heard someone opening the basement door. I shot up from the bed and saw that Edward was awake and scared as well. "Bloody hell," he muttered as he looked around the basement.
"Oh crap!" I croaked. "Someone is coming!"
He was deep in concentration for a second, and then he ordered, "Get under the bed and hide!"
"What!?" I shrieked. "It's cold and there are little creatures and-"
"Bella!" Edward interrupted frantically. "You have to!"
I groaned as I slid under the twin sized bed. The cold pavement of the basement floor made me shiver. It's crazy how one second you could be totally warm and comfortable and the next second you could be under a dusty old bed and quivering.
I heard someone thudding down the stairs, it was obviously Charlie. No one thuds down the stairs like that.
"Hello sir," Edward said politely.
"Good morning Edward," Charlie replied. "Are you alright? You seem kind of shaken…"
"N-no," Edward stuttered nervously. "I'm alright sir. I just saw a spider on the wall."
I didn't hear what Charlie had said because I saw a huge daddy long legs crawling toward me.
I clamped my hand over my mouth so that I wouldn't yelp.
"…I have a phobic of spiders," Edward informed awkwardly.
Yeah, me too, I thought to myself. The spider kept crawling toward me. I wanted to get out of there and run for my life, but I couldn't.
I tried to blow it away, but it wouldn't move. I blew harder. It wouldn't even flinch. Damn spider!
"Did you hear something?" Charlie asked skeptically.
Crap! I guess he had heard me. "No…" Edward answered, sounding uneasy.
The spider took a step toward me. Please spider! Please go away! I really want Edward to stay here…please just get out from under the bed, I silently begged the spider.
The spider stared at me with his little beady eyes.
As if I was cursed, the spider came closer to me. I wanted to scream. I wanted to scream very much. I hate spiders. I hate spiders.
I bit my tongue. Don't scream Bella!
"Well," Charlie grumbled. "I'm sorry you have to say down here. There are a lot of spiders crawling down here all the time."
Yeah, I wish I had known.
"Thanks. But I'm sure I'll be fine."
"I just came down here to tell you that Renée made pancakes, so if you want some just come upstairs." Wow…that was surprisingly nice of Charlie to say. Maybe I don't give him enough credit.
I could practically hear Edward smiling. "Thank you, Charlie."
Charlie chuckled darkly. "Please call me Mr. Swan," he snapped.
Or maybe not…
Edward cleared his throat. "Eh, of course," he said awkwardly.
Charlie sighed. "Well, I should wake Bells up now." I heard Charlie make his way to the stairs.
"Uh," Edward called, sounding anxious. "Wait!" Charlie stopped. There was a long pause before Edward spoke. "Could you please get me some fresh towels from the linen closet?"
I held my breath. "Sure..." Charlie replied and then walked up the stairs.
I heard Edward exhale.
I fleeted from under the dusty bed. "That was close," I muttered while wiping my sweaty brow.
Edward chuckled, but still seemed a bit shaken. "It's all right now," he whispered, so that Charlie couldn't hear us.
"Gosh, it was horrible under there. It was so dusty and there was a huge spider right next to me just staring at me with its beady eyes. I wonder where it went…" I mused in a hushed tone.
Just when I had said that, Edward's eyes widened. "Bella, don't move…" he demanded cautiously.
I stared at him with a perplexed look. "Why…?" I suddenly felt something moving on the top of my head. I stiffened. Oh snap…the spider! It had crawled on the top of my head while I was listening to Edward and Charlie discuss. "HOLY S-" I started to scream.
Edward was rapidly in front of me as he clamped his hand over my open mouth. "Don't scream!"
I started jumping up and down frantically like a little girl. "Get it off!" I tried screaming quietly.
Obeying what I had demanded, Edward flicked the spider from my head with his finger. "God Bella," Edward said exhaustedly as he placed his hands on his knees.
"Sorry…" I squeaked.
"It was just a spider, Bella." Edward sighed as he sat on the bed. "You better head upstairs; Charlie will be looking for you."
I fidgeted with the hem of my shirt and looked at him sheepishly. "Yeah…I guess you're right," I muttered as I ran to the stairs.
"Bella?" Edward called. I turned around and saw that he was grinning. "I think it's a better idea if I'm the one sneaking up to your room."
I nodded eagerly in agreement; with a broad smile on my face. "That's a great idea!"
I played with my meatloaf as Jacob slammed his books next to mine on the table. "Aggressive, are we?" I teased as he sat next to me.
"I'm a little upset," he replied, sounding deflated.
"A little?" I snorted.
Jacob ran his hand through his jet black hair and sighed as if he was annoying. "Can we just drop it, please?"
"Drop what?" Edward asked curiously, suddenly getting himself involved in our conversation. Edward took a seat next to me as he began nibbling on his burger.
"Nothing really, Jacob is just PMSing," I joked flippantly. "Like always."
Jacob elbowed me and glared at me incredulously. "Ouch," I said, sounding like a robot, showing that he had no effect on me.
Edward gave Jacob a sad smile, as if saying, "Sorry, she can be a jerk sometimes."
"Is it girl troubles?" Edward guessed.
My head snapped to look at Jacob's expression. Jacob looked at Edward and then at me and then down at his hands. He blushed.
I gasped. "Jake…you have a crush on a girl?"
Never in my life of knowing Jake had he ever had a crush on a girl. Sometimes I would think he was gay. I've never actually seen him interact with a girl before, except me of course.
Jacob got offended from what I had implied. "Don't talk with your mouth full Bella, it's not flattering," he snapped as he began writing in his notebook. He turned red from anger.
I swallowed my food and started laughing. "Oh my gosh, Jake!" I said incredulously. "Who is it?!"
Edward rolled his eyes. "Maybe he doesn't want to tell us," Edward implied politely, for some odd reason he wouldn't meet my gaze.
I snorted. "He has to tell me, I'm his best friend." I glanced at Jacob and saw that he was staring at Edward sheepishly. Then it hit me. "Wait…" I muttered. I looked at Edward sharply. "Do you know?"
Edward's face became pale. "It's a guy thing, Bella," he mumbled defensively.
I gaped at him. "A guy thing!?" I echoed severely. He cringed from my harsh tone.
Jacob scowled at me. "Edward is actually being a very good friend to me," Jake sneered. "Unlike you."
I gasped. "How am I not a good friend?"
Jacob ignored my question and blinked furiously at me. "If I told you who she was, you would go and talk to her."
I looked at him incredulously. "What!? Me?"
"Yes. You," he replied with his teeth gritted together. "I know how you are, Bella."
I exhaled and looked at both of them in awe. "You guys are seriously not going to tell me…" I mused while staring at Edward's sheepish expression. He looked down at his lunch tray, trying really hard not to look me in the eyes.
I scoffed. "I'll find out soon enough," I warned as my eyes pinned on Edward. "I guess I will just have to…persuade Edward to tell me."
Edward looked at me through his thick eyelashes, his green eyes pierced through mine. He gulped, as if he were afraid.
I smiled wickedly and gave him a wink.
