Disclaimer: I do not own twilight characters.:(

Gym was horrible! Coach Clapp decided that we would start basketball today. Little did he know that when I fall, I usually manage to take five, or in this case 6, people with me.

Alice, who had gym with me, had been spared from the 7 person pileup. She had been on the other side of the gym when my clumsiness became nearly lethal. Lucky her… I was sporting a couple bruises and I had been on the top of the pile. I shuddered at the thought of those who had been on the bottom and their injuries.

My blush faded as I got dressed. Because Alice had to walk home, I was alone in the locker room. I had waited until I was sure everyone had left so I didn't get any glares from the injured, or laughed at by witnesses.

When I was sure everyone had left, I gathered all my things and walked exited the locker. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a dark figure walking toward me. I couldn't see his face until he was only a few feet from me, too late to run; it was Demetri.

What the hell are is he doing here? I thought as he walked even closer, opening his mouth to speak.

"Hello Isabella," He said with an evil grin. "Did you miss me?"

"No," I said in as strong of a voice as manageable, my hands forming angry fists by my sides. "I didn't." Way to stay strong Bella. I chided as my voice wavered. It was barely more than a whisper now as he took a step forward.

"I watched your friends leave, Isabella," he stepped closer still. "So you don't have to lie to me any more." Another step.

"STAY AWAY FROM ME!!" I shouted. My breaths were shallow, and I could feel tears beginning to form. I tried to blink them away; I didn't want to show any weakness to the one person who I truly feared, especially now, when we were utterly alone. No one had heard me shout at him, meaning no one would come to help me. Being fearless was my only option, and I had never been very good at it.

"Aw what's the matter?" he asked closing the gap between us, not only ridding us of space, but me of hope that he would leave.

He stroked my cheek, and tucked a loose strand of hair behind my ear. I squeezed my eyes shut, willing this to be a nightmare. I could almost see him through my tightly closed eyelids as he bent his head down to the expanse of skin connecting my neck and shoulder. I leaned away form his hot breath as his lips grazed up my neck to my jaw.

"Stop," I whispered. "Please, stop." How could I have refused to take self defense classes when given the chance? All I could think of was knee to groin, which was useless because I was so close to him. Not to mention I was paralyzed with fear.

I felt a rush of cooler air as Demetri was torn from me. I gasped and opened my eyes in time to see Demetri skidding on his back until he hit a concrete light pole.

I turned away form Demetri to look for my savior. Even though he was turned away from me, I would recognize that bronze tousled hair anywhere. I looked back and forth between Edward and Demetri's unconscious form until Edward put his hands gently on my shoulders.

"Will I have to ask "are you alright" for the rest of our friendship?" he asked bending his head down to eye level.

I closed my eyes in relief at the realized that this horrible… experience was over. As I slowly opened my eyes, a small smile on my lips, I felt Edward raise one of his hands clad in a tan glove and wipe a stray tear away.

"Yes," I said, ignoring his slightly sarcastic comment. "I'm alright."

He sighed deeply, as if he had been holding his breath, and I was enveloped in his peppermint scent for a too-short moment.

As we stood there, I couldn't help but compare him to Demetri. Everything about them was different. While Edward was standing close to me, there was still at least 6 inches, and his hands on my shoulders were light and in no way foreboding or threatening. Even his breath was different. While Demetri's had been hot ,heavy and sticky on my skin, Edward's had been cool and light. Demetri, while defiantly attractive, was left in the dust compared to Edward's dazzling looks. In fact, Edward was almost tooperfect.I'm afraid he might disappear in a puff of smoke , wake up in my room completely alone and unprotected.

"Um," I started. "Will he"- I tilted my head toward Demetri's still unconscious form-"be okay?"

He seemed puzzled by my curiosity but he still answered my question. "Yes. He'll be fine for now." His voice was had a dark undertone that made me shiver slightly, but if Edward noticed, he didn't say anything.

"For now?"

"He'll be fine Bella," he assured. This still didn't calm my uneasiness. I wasn't worried for Demetri; I was worried that Edward might get in trouble for going after him.

I heard a groan come from Demetri and turned to look at him. I my body tensed on instinct but relaxed again when Edward gently pushed me behind his back. I peaked around his shoulders only to see Demetri's slightly confused, defiantly angry, but mostly scared look he was giving Edward. He opened his mouth as if to say something but instead closed it and walked briskly away. That image, with his blond hair slightly in his gray-blue eyes, with blood on his forearms from colliding with the ground was hopefully the last time I would see him.

I giggled slightly earning a confused look from Edward. "He looks more shaken up than I do."

A soft smile played on his lips and he held out his gloved hand to me. I hesitated and his smile seemed to dim slightly. "You don't have to come with me you know," he said, his smile almost completely gone from his perfect face.

"Oh, what? Sorry, I kind of spaced out for a moment," I said, realizing I hadn't answered him yet. He chuckled lightly.

"Would you," he started slowly. "Like me to take you home?"

I wasn't sure, but it sounded like he was teasing. I looked at his hand, then back up at his face. After pretending to think about it (how could I actually say no?) I answered him. "Sure." I took his still extended hand. He flinched slightly but pulled me toward his silver Volvo. Edward unlocked it and held open the door for me.

I couldn't believe how perfect he was! He's a complete gentle man, holding doors, beating up dangerous psycho paths… not to mention he's physically perfect. His perfect smile, his slightly disheveled bronze hair, his pale, clear skin, his beautiful eyes…

His now they were a deep butterscotch, but I distinctly remember them being an onyx color in biology. People's eye color didn't change like that. Even with contacts, people changed to a completely different color, not from dark to light , especially if that color was already Black and changed into a butterscotch.

I must have had a confused look on my face, because a worried one appeared on Edward's.

"I'm okay," I assured him as he helped me into the car.

As he closed my door, walked around the car and got into the drivers side, I prepared myself for any questions he might have about Demetri and his questions I might regret answering but all he said was "We have a deal remember? And if you don't mind I would like to go somewhere first."

He shot me a crooked smile, and I felt my heart flutter, as we sped out of the parking lot and away from the school.
