I don't have a reason for not updating, I've been just not focused on writing,
Only on reading, I've been reading lots and lots of fan fiction.
Anyway, hope you guys don't hate me…
Chapter 11: Angels Cry
The next morning I did everything to convince Bella to go to school, she was thinking of excuses after excuses to not go. Only after Jasper made her promise to go to school did she start to get ready for school. I was beginning to worry for the carnival, Carlisle still wanted us to go because the whole school was going and it would be suspicious if only the two of us didn't go. So we would form a plan for the carnival so Andrew wouldn't get a hold of her, no matter what I wouldn't let anything happen to her, not now I had someone so close to me I didn't want to lose her like I lost my parents.
Bella came out the bathroom just in time for the school bus. We hurried downstairs and ran to the bus, Jasper had seats for us so we wouldn't have to stand. Only when we sat down did I notice that everybody on the bus was looking at Bella. I took her hand and rubbed soothing circles on it. She looked grateful and buried her head in my shoulder. Jasper looked over the back of his seat and saw Bella hiding.
"Sorry, I found out this morning that a few of the other people on the hallway witnessed everything, they told other people and now the whole school knows."
I sighed and pinched the bridge of my nose, we didn't need this not now.
"We'll deal with it, I guess" Bella whispered. Always trying to stand strong, she didn't like to rely on other people, she didn't like to show to others that she was weak.
"Jasper, can I speak with you and Emmett after school?" He looked at me curiously, probably wondering what I was talking about, but when I gave a quick glance at Bella he understood immediately and nodded. We arrived at school and headed off to our first class. Classes went on slowly, a few of Jacobs friends looked at us as if we where filth but I didn't care, they weren't our big problem here. I also noticed that Bella wasn't really paying any attention to class. As a matter of fact she hadn't said anything al morning.
At lunch Jasper asked her how classes went and she just answered good nothing more, he sent me a worried glance and I sighed.
"Emmett, Jasper can I talk to you both outside?" the both nodded and followed me outside.
"It's like this, I'm very worried about the carnival next weekend. Carlisle wants us to attend, but I don't think it's safe. He is going to be there even if we don't go to the Ferris wheel he'll come looking for her." I explained to them, although I don't think I needed to as soon as I began about the carnival they knew what I meant.
"You're right, but we need to go. We just need to be by her side and never leave the crowd of people. He won't do much if there are too much people around."
"But we still need to take precautions if we want her to be safe, if he takes action during the carnival." Emmett flexed his muscles after he said it. Probably wanting to show off, meaning he thought he could take the man on himself.
"Lets just agree to stick together during the carnival okay?" I asked, they both nodded and the bell signaling class to begin again rang. I waited outside for Bella to come out and we walked to class together she was still being silent. I took her hand, looked around for teachers and then pulled her toward the forest behind the school.
"Edward where are we going? Class is starting!" I looked back at her and smiled.
"Don't worry, we are just skipping class." She smiled a little, only a little but it made me happy to see I could still make her smile.
We walked a little further away until we found a little stream with some rocks on the side, it was surrounded by trees and flowers.
Bella sat down and looked a little more happy. I sat down next to her and took her hand in mine.
"Bella?" She looked up at me with a questioning glance. I sighed and looked her in the eye again.
"Bella, I want you to talk to me. If you don't want to talk to me, then talk to Jasper or someone else, but don't keep it inside. It hurts me to see you like this, so closed up and turned away from everyone who loves you." Bella looked shocked at my confession, it may be a little harsh but it was the truth. She let a single tear drop and hugged me tightly.
"I'm sorry, I just don't want to burden you with all my troubles. It's my past that is coming to haunt me and I can't let the idea slip that something might happen to any of you guys."
After that Bella told me everything that was on her mind, that she was scared senseless, she was angry that Andrew had gotten free, that she wanted to be brave for the others and didn't want to show she was in pain because of the little note. We stayed there the rest of the afternoon and only headed back when it was time to take the bus back to Bayham. When we got back, I notified Carlisle of where we had been so we wouldn't be in trouble when the school reported that we skipped the afternoon. That night all 6 of us stayed in our room and talked and laughed like we didn't have a care in the world. But deep inside we all knew that soon trouble would be brewing in the horizon and it wouldn't be pretty but we would pull through. I knew that!
