Edward took a deep breath and went into his Biology class. He was going to get Bella to like him if it was the last thing he was going to do. All he needed was a date with her so he could show her how he really was. He had the perfect plan into getting that date with Bella, and that was a guilt trip.
When he entered he saw Bella in a table and he quickly sat next to her. He saw in the corner of his eye that Bella was biting her lip. He smiled to himself knowing even though she was cold hearted from what happened last night, she still was capable of feeling bad.
Bella cleared her throat."Hello Edward."
Edward schooled his face and slightly turned it toward Bella, giving her a nod.
Bella sighed and put her hands on the table and twiddled her thumbs. She didn't know what to do. She knew she hurt the poor guy and she didn't know how to make it up to him. She didn't want him to be sad. He was the sweetest she had ever known. Even better than Mike.
"Edward, I just want you to know that I don't want to stop being partners with you. I still would like to do the project." she looked up at him and saw that he wasn't looking at her and just had a hard expression looking at the board.
She sighed. "Edward I'm sorry. But really what did you expect? He is my boyfriend and you're not. We are from two completely different worlds. Please believe me when I say I am truly sorry."
At this Edward turned his head and looked at her. "Really Isabella? Really? I think if you were truly sorry then you would never do or say anything awful to be ever again and treat me like I'm the gum underneath your shoe. That is how I know that you are truly sorry and not the cold hearted girl that you truly are."
Bella's jaw dropped to the floor. She had never been talked to liked that before, especially from a Greaser."Edward I am only human. This is our life and this is how things need to be."
Edward rolled his eyes."See Isabella. You didn't even deny that you weren't truly sorry. You know, you are a horrible person."
"What? How dare you say such a thing? You don't even know me." Bella's eyes were filled with fury.
"And that's usually how people can tell if someone is a good person or not. It all depends on how they treat people they don't know or associate with to determine how they really truly are." He said coldly.
Bella blinked. He had her there. She put an hand on Edward's arm and felt a bolt of electricty. She almost extracted her hand but wanted to comfort Edward. The electricity scared her. She had no idea why whenever she was near Edward she felt like she might faint.
She looked up at Edward."Edward, really I truly am sorry. Just don't take it personally since I treat you at school and around people differently."
"How could I not Isabella?" He snapped. "Do you know how badly it hurts to be treated this way. And it's not just by you. It's by every snobby Soc. And I'm not the only one that feels this way. Emmett and Jasper do too, as well as other Greasers. You treat them both like shit and you don't even care. We are people too Isabella. Don't you realize after highschool that your reputation and popularity won't even matter? It will all be a thing of the past. You will have a family and highschool would seem so stupid to you. Like it is right now. Just think about how you treat people, just think of what it'd be like to be in my shoes." And at that he snapped his towards the front of the class and continued to ignore Bella once again.
Bella was shocked by his words. She never though about it that way before. She hated this side of Edward. The side of Edward she knew from the two days she ever talked to him was sweet, kind and warm. This Edward was cold and mean. She hated the way he said her name. But she mostly hated herself. She knew that everything he was saying was true, and that she was just a coward.
She looked down at the the table and mutter,"I thought you were going to call me Bella from now on."
Edward squinted his eyebrows in confusion."I thought you only wanted me to say that in private." he said the last word with a mocking voice.
Bella's eyes turned sad."But I like it."
"I don't care." he said coldly and slightly shifting his body away from her.
Bella saw this and it made her heart sink. She didn't like how it felt to be isolated from Edward. It made her want to wrap her arms around him and tell him that everything was going to be alright, even though she knew it wasn't.
"Edward." she said trying to get his attention. He ignored her."Edward I am sorry. What do I have to do to make it up to you."
At this Edward turned around."You won't do it."
"Yes I will!" she insisted with wide eyes."Just tell me and I'll do it. I hate seeing you so upset. Please just tell me."
Edward pretended to think but he knew exactly what he wanted."I want you to go with me to the drive in."
Bella's eyes widened."You know I can't do that. I have a boyfriend."
"It won't be a date. I just want you to get to know me. To show you that I am not white trash with long greasy hair. I am a human being with feelings and I am a very nice person once you get to know me."
"I already know you're a nice person."
He rolled his eyes."Bella please. If you truly want to make it up to me. You'll go to the drive in with me."
Bella bit her lip and started to think. She knew she had a boyfriend but at the moment she didn't care. It was incredibly tempting to go with him even though he said it wasn't going to be a date. She surprisingly wanted it to be. She never thought she would ever like a guy like Edward, but she knew that she did. She couldn't avoid it. But mostly she just wanted to wipe that grin off his face and kiss him. She couldn't pretend like she didn't any longer.
Bella nodded."Okay Edward, I'll go to the drive in with you."
"Great!" he said grinning because he was excited, but mostly because his plan had worked.
