6. Getting to know each other
"You are trying to make me blush aren't you?" I said with a smile.
He started leaning in and I almost thought he was going to kiss me… but he went for my ears and whispered cockily
"Maybe… or maybe I'm trying to do other things too." That shot shivers through my spine. Was it me or did that sound dirty? Either way, it sounded damn sexy.
He got out of the car and opened my door as if nothing happened. That was very mean! Then he walked me to my door.
"Do you want to come in?" I asked
"I would have loved to, but I need to head home."
"Okay, well I had a great time. I'll see you tomorrow!" I said hiding my disappointment.
"Yes. Tomorrow it shall be." And with that he was gone, but not before flashing a beautiful crooked smile.
As I ran back home, I couldn't help but smile. I couldn't believe how perfect she was. I couldn't help but feel this weird feeling in the pit of my stomach. I just couldn't identify it. I never felt like this before and it scared me. I had never even considered
I arrived home to find Alice jumping up and down until she hugged me. What's with her?
"Oh Edward, I'm so happy for you!" then she slapped me all of a sudden! "You better not ruin this!" and then she hugged me again. "You have to introduce her to us! We need to go shopping and…" she said in a rush.
"Alice calm down! Gosh do you have a disorder or something?" I said still smiling. "And besides, we're just friends."
"We'll see about that…" she mused with an evil grin.
"Aw! Our little Eddie finally became a man and showed interests towards a girl!" Came a booming sound from the kitchen. I glared at Alice.
"I'm sorry; I couldn't resist telling…everything." I sighed.
"But there isn't anything to tell! I don't get why you guys are all excited. We just talked. It doesn't mean anything!" Why were they doing a big deal out of this was beyond me. It was quite embarrassing actually. Was I that pathetic with my love life? On second thought, maybe..
"She's bad news I say." Of course Rose had to share what was on her mind with everyone.
"Oh shut up Rose! Be happy for Edward for once! Or at least pretend to be!" Alice was mad now.
"It's okay Alice" I signed again. What's new?
"I want to meet her! Please, please, please, please…" Alice pouted.
"Be patient" Which I knew would be difficult since it was Alice we were talking about.
"I'm actually looking forward to meet her!" Emmett almost shouted.
"I think it's best not to!" I said and we all chuckled. I then headed to my room and waited for the morning to come.
I dressed in the clothes my pixie of a sister chose for me. She said that Bella was going to melt when she sees me. I was really excited, so bad that Jasper couldn't stay in the same room as me. And that's saying something. I felt like such a geek!
I arrived in the parking lot and saw her Volvo making an entrance as usual. I walked towards the driver's door and opened it before she had the chance to. She looked up at me surprised. Her expression was soon erased by a dazzling smile.
"Your welcome." I said chuckling. "You know, I didn't get the chance to tell that I had an amazing evening yesterday."
"Well, I must say that I really enjoyed your compagnie as well." She answered.
And just to annoy me Mike arrived beside her. I groaned. She looked at me with a smile and winked.
"Hey Bella! You look great today! Like usual of course. Mind if I walk you to trig?" he asked almost pleading. I laughed so low. I think Bella heard it because she glared at me. Even glaring she's attractive.
"Thanks Mike, but Edward here is the one escorting me to trig. Aren't you Edward?" she said looking at me with a smile. How I adored this creature was beyond me.
"Yes. We should be on our way or we will be late." We turned around and I felt Mike's glare burning holes in my back.
"I'm sorry for imposing; it's just that Mike is starting to be a pain in the ass. He follows me everywhere." She said with irritation.
"I know what you mean…but I don't blame him for wanting to follow you." I don't know from where all this confidence came from, but I'm starting to like it.
"Well, you can follow me anytime." She said chuckling.
Oh, are we playing flirty? I raised an eyebrow at her and she just smiled.
"Guess what?" I asked. "What" she whispered.
"I'll be very glad to do so." And we both laughed.
That's how easy it was to be myself with her. She was just amazing. Period.
It was the longest class of my life. The bell rang and I went straight to Bella's class. I leaned against the wall and waited for her. She walked out and smiled as soon as she saw me.
"Hi." She said breathless.
"Hello." We started walking to biology.
"How was Trig?"
"Boring and you?"
"Same here." We entered the classroom and people stared at us probably wondering what we were doing together. Before her, I never spoke to anybody especially female. We kept our distance and they kept theirs, but that didn't stop them from lusting over us. We sat down, our arms almost touching.
"Would you like to sit with me at lunch?" I asked. I hoped she said yes.
"Hmmm…Okay. Ashley won't die if I don't sit with her but Angela probably will." She giggled. I gave her a questioning look.
"She'll have to sit with Jessica and her friends." Ah! Right.
"I guess I understand but at least she'll have Ben."
"Thank god for him." She laughed. It sounded like bells. She surely was in a good mood today. The golden tone in her eyes looked like honey, like the eyes of an angel. (hihi, I couldn't help myself!)
The class began and the teacher came in the classroom with a television. I saw her press her back to the chair and crossed her arms over her chest. Her hands also balled into fists and I didn't understand why. The next thing I know, I'm mirroring her sitting position. The credits rolled brightening the room and the beautiful creature beside me. I passed the entire movie watching her and she noticed it.
"Liking what you see." She had whispered.
"Very." She had smiled shyly.
The bell rang and we both got up. We both walked in the cafeteria and she spotted her sister. She indicated me to follow her.
"Hey Ash, Roxanne!" she told them smiling.
Omfg! It's Edward Cullen! Oh! They look so cute together…Roxanne
By the looks of her mind, she was a good girl. I'm happy for Ashley, she found a good friend.
"Hello Bella!" I cleared my throat.
"Oh I'm sorry girls, this is Edward. Edward, this is Ashley my sister and this is Roxanne her friend."
"Hello ladies!" I told them with a crooked grin.
"Hey, I won't be sitting with you girls today!"
"Okay…poor Angela and Ben." She giggled.
"It was nice meeting you two." We walked in line to get some 'food'. She only got lemonade and I got a slice of pizza and a coke. We went to a table and sat in front of each other. I watch as my siblings sat a couple of tables away from us. Rosalie glared at Bella and Alice had a huge smile playing on her lips. The guys were acting normal pretty normal.
Why is he sitting with her, I don't get him…Rosalie
Look at them they're so cute! Maybe we could go shopping soon…Alice
Wow, Edward is actually happy! I'm glad that he found a girl that could make him feel like that. Alice is too exited…Jasper
Rose was so sexy last night…(a disturbing image popped in his head)…Emmett
I turned my attention to Bella who was still looking at my family. It looked like she was listening to something. She turned back to me and looked sad.
"Rosalie doesn't like me." She stated looking at her lemonade.
"No it's not that. She just feels threatened by you, is all."
"There are no reasons to." Was she kidding me?
"You don't see yourself very clearly." I don't understand how she can think that she is ordinary. She is the absolute opposite of it.
"Believe me, I do. I don't see why everyone is amazed by me. I'm not that interesting."
"On the contrary. You are fascinating. But I must admit that it frustrates me that I can't fully read you."
"Okay then, let's play 21 questions. Like that, you will learn a little about me and vice versa." She answered.
"What's your favourite colour?" I asked. She looked surprised at first, but afterward she looked thoughtful.
"I'd say purple. It's the kind of color that can be represented in many ways. It can be comforting and warm or the total opposite depending on your perspective."
"I think I have to agree with you. Purple is warm and beautiful at the same time." It was true. Whenever I thought of purple, I thought of her eyes.
"What's your favourite band or artist?"
"I'd say Debussy. He's the best."
"Really? My favourite of his is Claire de lune!" she said smiling.
"You like Claire de lune?" I asked totally surprised. Can she get any perfect?
"Yeah! Is that so hard to believe?" She faked an insulted face.
"No! It's just that not to many like this kind of music. I must say you have great taste in music!"
"Why thank you kind sir!" she said in her perfect British accent.
"You're welcome my lady!" I answered back in a British accent, but my accent wasn't as hypnotizing as hers. She smiled.
"So…have you ever had a boyfriend?" I've been dying to ask this question. She looked down.
"No." My mouth dropped wide open. I couldn't believe it!
"Is it that surprising?" I nodded. "Well, believe it." She signed. "It's just that I haven't found the right guy yet. I had a lot of guys back in London that asked me out but I would always decline. It's hard to find someone who likes you for you and not for you're looks, but I guess you know what I mean. Girls are always after you, am I right?" I smiled.
"Yes. It's just so surprising that you never had a boyfriend, but I understand. I think the exact same way. I'm still waiting for the one."
"You mean you've never had a girlfriend?" It was her turn to look surprised. I shook my head and she had the exact same face that I had earlier.
"What do you like to do?"
"I love to write songs and then sing them. Ashley and I love to play Rock stars. I also love to play the piano…" she trailed and her face dropped like she was thinking about something sad.
"You play the piano?" Was she for real?
"Yes…my mom forced me to take lessons but I hated it, but now I love to play it. It's the only thing left that relates me to her…" I could see the sadness in her eyes so I changed the subject.
"Do you play another instrument?"
"I believe it is my turn to ask but yes, I play the drums and the guitar. Do you play an instrument?" She asked with pure curiosity.
"Yes. I also play the piano myself." I didn't want to make her uncomfortable like earlier so I asked a random question.
"What's your favourite subject?" I asked her.
"Languages. I love to learn new ones." She said without any hesitations.
"Do you speak other language other than English?" she asked
"I also speak French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Deutch and many more."
We kept asking questions until the end of lunch. Time passes in a blur when I'm with Bella. She is too interesting.
She went to Spanish and I went to Gym. The class was long and I couldn't wait until it ended. Bella and I continued asking random questions and laughing. The day ended and I was the most amazing day of my life so far. I went home to only wait impatiently until Bella and Ashley were asleep to go and watch her unconscious.
She talked a little but less than usual. She didn't cry and only said my name once. I ran back home and found all my family in the living room.
"What's going on?" I asked panicking.
"Alice had a vision." Carlisle responded.
"What was it?"
"The Volturi are coming to Forks." He said.
"Okay…" What was bad about it? I still didn't get it.
"I don't know when they will arrive, but I have a bad feeling about their visit." Alice said. Nobody seemed happy about it.
"Do you know what they want?" I asked.
"No and it bugs the hell out of me!" she almost shouted.
"Alice calm down. We'll figure it out. You'll probably have other visions by the time they come. Don't worry." I tried to reassure her and Jasper tried to calm everyone. God he was helpful!
We continued discussing our theories but we didn't have much information. I went back to my room and prepared for another day.
I woke up this morning in a good mood. Yesterday was wonderful and I hope today will be as amazing. Edward was perfect. Time passes so fast with him by my side. I can't believe I have been ignoring him far a week! I am really stupid sometimes. I am looking forward to today!
I got up and did my every morning routine…again. I dressed up in grey skinny jeans and a white hoodie with red and blue logos. To top it off, I put some light makeup and took another of my Hello Kitty handbags. I also wore simple black flats.
I teleported myself to the living room and found it empty. I sat on the sofa and opened the TV waiting for Ashley who was probably in her bedroom fixing her hair or makeup. I swear, that girl can take hours and hours and it's not like she needs it! I think I waited at least half an hour before she came downstairs.
"Finally! What took you so long?"
"I didn't know what to wear and I couldn't find my green eye shadow! Besides, it's not my fault you get ready so fast!" she said hysterically. I laughed.
"You could've just called me. I would've come and help you!"
"Too late for that…Anyways, I want to take the pink Porsche today!" she said excited.
"Ugh! Fine." I didn't really like the pink Porsche but she did. We would look like Barbies for god shake! I find it too girlie, but if she wants to ride in it, I'll ride it. I drove to school and I must say it drives smoothly.
"Hey, what's the hurry?" I didn't say anything.
"Oh I know, you want to see Edward." She wiggled her eyebrows and made kissing sounds.
"Oh shut up will you!" I know she was right but still, she didn't need to annoy me with it.
"Defensive are we?" I growled. "Okay. Okay, I got it! Geez woman!"
"Does that mean you're going to the dance with him?" she asked after a while.
There is a dance this Friday and its girl's choice. I didn't want to go because I hate dancing even though I'm pretty good. (Even with my clumsiness) Ashley and I are supposed to play a couple of songs. I wasn't surprise to know that almost all the male students are going to be there because they wanted to hear us play. You don't know how glad I am that it's girl's choice. Unfortunately, that didn't stop boys from coming and asking me to be their date. I would politely decline or in most cases, I would control their minds and make them believe that they didn't want to go with me.
"I don't know, I didn't ask him. I'm afraid he would refuse." I said sadly.
"Are you freaking kidding me? He would be mad if he refuses. Heck if I was a guy, I would totally want to go with you!" She really knows how to reassure me.
"Yeah…maybe, but I'm such a coward. I don't have the guts to ask him."
"Well if you don't, I'll ask him for you!" she straitened.
"You wouldn't!" I glared at her. "Two can play that game! Don't you have a boy in mind? Oh forget that, I know exactly who I will ask!" I said grinning evilly.
"Who?" she whined.
"Okay, that's just plain evil!"
As we reached the parking lot, every eye was on us. I drove Ashley first and then parked the car. The door opened wide open and a white hand appeared in front of me. I smiled and took it gladly.
"Hello." I excited.
"Hello" he chuckled. "Nice car. Very…pink."
"Hey! It's not my fault. Ashley made me drive it!" I said with a pout.
"You do know that you're sister is younger than you?" he said amused. Being the mature adult I am, I stuck out my tongue at him and walked away. It didn't take two seconds before he was besides me again.
"I'm sorry. I couldn't help it!"
I laughed. "Don't kid yourself, she can be scary sometimes."
"If you say so. You're going to be late, you better hurry!" he said pushing me.
"Alright! I'll see you later."
The morning passed rather quickly and so did lunch. This time Edward sat with me and the girls and Ben. The bell rang and I got up. I walked but Edward didn't fallow me.
"Aren't you coming?"
"No, sometimes ditching is healthy. And I have an appointment so I have to be excused." He responded.
"Oh, all right."
"Don't be sad, I'll text you. Just give me your number." He said with a smile.
After we exchanged numbers, I walked to Biology and sat at our desk. We were still watching the same boring movie.
I decided to text Edward. That seemed much more appealing!
Bella: I'm so bored! I should've ditched with you.. -_-"
Edward: Hahah! Well, at least next time you'll know! Besides, I would really enjoy your company! :P
Bella: Yeah. Me too .. :3 hihi
There were 5 minutes left before the bell rang and the movie was finally over. Mike came and sat next to me much to my dislike.
"Alright, I have a question." Oh no! "Do you want to go to the dance with me?" he asked in a rush.
"I thought it was girl's choice and I thought Jessica asked you? " I said.
"Yes she did but I thought you were going to ask me." Poor guy
"She really likes you, you know. It would break her heart."
"Won't you still go with me? Please." This guy doesn't get the hint, does he?
"Sorry, no" It was kind of rude but, hey. The guy just doesn't get it! I Am Not Interested!
The bell rang announcing the end of the day. Finally! I just couldn't wait to get home and just sleep my head off..
