One week! That's how long Edward Cullen has been apsent, not that I was counting or paying attention. I didn't even feel teh need to have doubt as I walked into the cafe that Edward would be there. But boy was a wrong. The empty seat was full once again, by Edward. My stomach went uneasy. Could it be possible for me to skip biology next period? No, I wouldn't be such a coward, he was the one to run first. I grabbed a soda anf sat at my table until lunch was over.


My back was turned to the door, my seat as far as possible from the other. I was hoping Edward would do the same. I doodled on my notebook until I heard the chair screech against teh floor. Trying not to look at him, I let me dark hair make a curtain over my shoulder before I looked through it. The dark circles under his eyes had disappeared and his cold hard black eyes were a soft beautiful topaz. The moop of messy brown hair that made him seem more mysterious, now seemed to eb tamed. I looked back at my doodled at started to hum.

"Hello." a musical voice greeted. "My names is Edward Cullen, you must be Bella." I turned towards him and gasped slightly. He wassmilign a crooked smile that scent my heart into overdrive. His chair was closer towards me then I thought possible.

"H-how do you know my name?" I asked.

"Oh, I think everyone around here knows your name." His smile and voice had intoxicated me. It was like nothing I had ever heard before, and his smile nothing I had ever seen. It took me a minute to get my thought organized and let out a practical answer.

"No, I mean why did you call me Bella?" His forehead creased into congusion at my question. "Do you prefer Isabella?" he asked.

"No, No." I said in some what horror, "I mean, I'm sure my dad must call me Isabella behind my back." Edward just smirked and soon enough the teacher walked in.

"Good Afternoon class. Today we will be doing a lab with yor partners, this is not a lab that is allowed with books. If I catch you with a book, then it will be confascated and you will fail the paper. You have all class, begin."

"Shall we start partner?" Edward gestured to teh microscope.

"Sure." I replied. When I didn't make a movement he spoke again.

"Or I can start." Oh, he had wanted me to start. Now I felt even more stupid, due to the fact that I had just been staring at him. Red blush raced to my cheeks and looke towards teh ground.

"I can." We took turns and were the first to finish. I looked out the window only to see that it was raining. I sighed loudly, irratated.

"Something wrong?" The musical voice asked.

"Nothing really, it's just I hate teh rain." I uttered playing with a loose string on my shirt.

"Forks must be a hard place for you to live."

I sighed. "Yeah but it's for the best." I faced Edward agian. His face was full of sorrow but his eyes, his once black eys that were now topaz, screamed curiousity.

"Your eyes? Did you get contacts?" Baffled, Edward opened his mouth to answer.

"No Not at all, but I'm still curious as to why you would move to a place you hate."

It hadn't escaped me that he had changed subjects so fast, but I let it go,"My mom got remarried."

"That doesn't mean you should put yourself in misery." The tone he used was slightly angry, like my mother forced me into this.

"No, but it was my choice. Phil is a baseball player, and I decided that traveling wasnt my thing. Charlie was my only option without putting my mom in misery with me." My cheeks slightly burned with the heat of my blush.

"I see," Edward muttered. "Your happy for her." I laughed. His eyebrows furrowed together in confusion, or maybe frustration.

"It's just my face must be easy to read. My mom always called me her open book."

"I beg to difer, I find you quiet hard to read." His tone sounded like there was more meaning then the fraze. Before I could answer the bell rung and he was out of there like a bat out of hell.


I felt a little better after speaking to Bella. For some strange reason, she amazed me, and that wasn't including that fact that she was a silent mind to me. I felt in a way she was safe from both of us. She could quiet possibly be a good friend. Though I couldnt help hiding the feeling that I wanted to tell her everything, what I was, about my world.

Alice, I assumed would love Bella to death. I smirked at my favorite sister as we stood in the High School Parking lot.

"What?" She asked smiling.

"Like you don't know." I playfully elbowed her. She giggled her beel like laugh but soon her face went completely blank. I rolled my eyes, probabaly sothing extreme since we were in Forks. But the picture that was painted in both our minds was horror. Bella Swan was at teh back corner of her truck when Tyler Crowley's car crashed into her. Then all want blank.

"Edward!" Alice scream whispered. I was off at the speed of sound. I knew that if her amazing blood was spilt on the pavement I wouldnt be able to control myself. I placed myself between the car and Bella and braced myself for the impact. My arms wrapped around the human's small waist and dug my shoulder into the side of the vehicle until the car came to a complete stop. The schreeching sound of the tires burned my ears as I pushed the car away from the two of us.

"Ed-Edward?" a soft voice asked.

"Shhh Bella, I wouldn't move if I were you. You hit your head pretty hard." I softly said.

"Ow" She said as if me telling her about her head had reminded her of the pain. I chuckled.

"Thats what I thought."

There was shooting and screams and sirens but all I could see was the angel that lay in my arms. Bella was concentrating hard on smoething, but that didn't stop her from looking beautiful. Her brown eyes would lock on mine every now and then and she whould blush and look away. My thought were only on her....... until my siblings thoughts came into my head.

Edward are you alright? Wait- what am I saying? Is She alright?

You are such and idiot Edward Anthony Masen Cullen!

Dude, what the hell!?!?!?!

Emmett was right, well in a way. What had I done? I knew I had done the right thing, But why did Rosalie, Emmett and Jasper all frown upon it?

"Mr. Cullen," Mrs. Lipton's voice stopped my mental conversation. "You and Ms. Swan are going to have to get in the ambulance." I flashed one of my smiles at her.

"I'm fine Mrs. Lipton, but Bella here hit her head pretty hard." Bella threw me an evil glare. "traitor" she hissed under her breath, thinking no one else could here.

"Very well, just get in the back adn have your father check you out." She begged.

"Sure." I muttered. After they had finally gotten Bella into a neck brace and strapped into a streature, I climbed in after her in the back. She looked like she wanted to talk but decided she didnt want to do it here. Right before we drove off, and the doors shut, I saw the faces of my siblings, perfectly matching their thoughts.

Wait until Carlisle hears of this.

Eward, I know that was stupid, but if her blood was spilt I would have lost it too.

You never answered me Edward Anthony, IS SHE ALRIGHT?

What was the desire to stop that van. People die everyday, what save her?

Why did I do it?

How to save a life by The Fray

Step one
You say we need to talk he walks
You say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politly back at you
You stare politly right on through

Some sort of window to your right
He goes left but you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in this bitterness
and I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defence
Without granting innocence

Lay down a list of what is wrong
Things you told him all along
And pray to god he hears you
and pray to god he hears you

Where did I go wrong
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in this bitterness
and I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

He begins to raise his voice
You lower yours, grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or with the ones you've followed

He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in this bitterness
and I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life (repeat whole chorus twice, then last line twice)

I slowly climbed out of the back and went staight to Carlisle. Even with vampire senses, it wouldn't have taken me long to find Carlise, do to teh fact that the hospital was so small.

Edward? What are you doing here?

"That car accident that was called in from Forks High. I had some part in that."I spoke softly so no human could here me.

Please don't tell me that you and your brothers had a stupid bet and it resulted to this-

"No, I stopped it."

I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. Carlsile looked at me intensly, showing his father figure side. I looked up to this ma, and to say what happened made me feel like a small child again.

"I mean I jumped infront of Bella Swan and stopped the van from crushing her."
