A/N: Thanks to everyone who reviewed last chapter. Not quite as many as I usually get, but still more then I expected. Updates after today will be slower then they have been because I'm now volunteering for Boo at the Zoo up untill halloween. I will still try to write as much as possible. Also I am thinking of writing this Chapter in Charlies POV as well, and I was thinking of doing the dance in Edward's. So tell me what you think of that idea. And now Chapter 13!

Disclaimer: I don't oen twilight, because if I did, I definitely wouldn't be posting here.


Chapter 13

I didn't answer him, I couldn't. I just ran in to his arms and cried. He stood stunned for a second before wrapping his arms around me. He didn't ask me any questions just let me cry. And I did. I'm not sure when but at some point we had moved and sat down on the couch. I'm not sure how long we sat there until I had cried myself to sleep, but I vaguely remember being carried in to my room. Charlie kissed my forehead and covered me in the blankets. I snuggled in to them and slowly fell asleep. I slept terribly that night, with dreams of what could have happened if Edward and Emmett hadn't saved me. I woke up crying each time, and after a while drifted off in to a dreamless sleep.

It was well in to the afternoon when I woke up the next day. I noticed that I was still in the sweats that I had borrowed from Alice the night before. Remembering that I immediately felt dirty again. I grabbed a change of clothing and my toiletries and ran to the bathroom, I quickly undressed and surveyed the damage once again. As I had suspected there was a large bruise on my stomach, the bite mark on my chest was even darker then before and there were still a few red marks from the scratches all over my body. The bruises that were on my arms and wrists were much the same as they had been the night before. The only bruise that looked slightly better was the one on my eye, which was now just a yellow mark with the occasional purple flecks. My eyes were red and puffy from all the crying last night, and both had dark circles proving my terrible nights sleep. Once again I turned on the water and stepped in. The water burned my skin and turned it red, but like last night, I did not turn it down. I scrubbed myself the same way I had before, still trying to get the filthy feeling to go away, I then washed my hair and stepped out of the shower, feeling no cleaner then before I had gotten in. I sighed and hopped out. I quickly changed refusing to look in the mirror this time. I left the bathroom and walked down the stairs, I was about to walk in to the kitchen, but I heard Charlie on the phone.

"Okay, thank you Carlisle," A pause, "Yes, for most of the night." Another pause. I turned away before I could hear anymore, I knew what they were talking about. I was to relieved to be annoyed that they were talking about me. I was glad that I did not have to tell Charlie what had happened. I made a mental note to thank Carlisle when I got the chance. After I was sure he would be off the phone I walked in to the kitchen.

"Morning." he said, I just nodded. "That was Dr. Cullen, he just told me about last night." I nodded again. He sighed, "Do you want to talk about it?"

"No, dad, I'm fine," I told him, hoping I would be. He looked at me doubtfully.

"Are you sure Bells?" He asked, I knew he was just concerned about me, but I really couldn't talk about it, not now, and not to Charlie.

"Yea, I'm sure. Can we just act like it didn't happen?" I asked him, begging him with my eyes to understand how much I wanted to pretend.

"Of course." he told me.

"Thanks. So what time is it anyways?" I was grateful that he had agreed to let it go.

"Around two, I think." he said concomitantly.

"I thought you were going fishing today?" I was confused, he almost always went fishing with Harry Clearwater down at the reservation.

"I decided to stay home today, after -" he tried to stop talking, but it was too late, we both knew what he was about to say. I found myself nodding again and then decided that I was going to go for a walk. I grabbed my jacket and walked out the door. I didn't care where I was going I just wandered around. Eventually I found myself at a park. I sat down on the swings and being swinging a little bit dragging my feet along the stoned beneath me. I was completely lost in my own world, so it took me a while to notice that there was someone else in the park with me, and even then I didn't look up until they sat on the swing next to me.

"Bella," Mike greeted me coldly. He had a cast on his arm, apparently Emmett hadn't been exaggerating when he said he had broken Mike's arm. I nodded in his direction and stood to leave. "Where are you going?" He asked in the same cold tone of voice, grabbing my arm with his good one.

"Let me go." I told him harshly.

"What if I don't want to." he retorted conversationally. I pulled at my arm, but he did not release it.

"Leave me alone." I hissed.

"No." I pulled my arm away from him, this time he let go, and walked away. He jogged a few steps to catch up with me and then followed in step with me.

"What do you want, Mike?" I asked annoyed. He ignored me. I finally looked up from the ground in front of me to look at him and saw that his face was paper white and he was staring straight ahead. I followed his gaze to see that Edward Cullen was walking towards us. Mike mumbled something about having to get home and walked quickly away. I sighed in relief. It wasn't long before Edward was right in front of me.

"Thanks," I said gratefully.

"No problem," he replied. "What are you doing out here anyways?" he asked me.

"Just going for a walk," I told him, "I needed to get out of the house." He nodded in understanding.

"Mind if I join you?" he asked. I smiled and nodded. I turned around and walked with him. I wasn't really paying attention to where I was going, because I was to busy watching him. He was staring straight ahead, his eyes a dark shade of topaz today. Like always he walked with an unnatural grace which made me look even more awkward next to him
