Hey you guys, so I got this chapter out for you. Thank you for those who wished me a happy birthday. It really did make my day. I really love all the reviews that you have been giving me. It really motivates me to get chapters out.
I am here in Utah, and I thought that I would have wireless internet, but my aunt got rid of it, so I have to wait until late at night to take my dad's wireless USB port he has and I managed to get this out. I hope you guys like it. Sorry for all the mistakes, it is really late.
Anyways, read on, if you dare
Chapter 14: confused
I have a problem that I cannot explain
I have no reasons why it should have been so plain,
Have no questions but I sure have excuse
I lack the reason why I should be so confused,
I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
-Roulette by System of a Down
The next few days passed by in a blur before I knew it Christmas had come and gone like that. Edward didn't spend Christmas with us. He was here for a little bit on Christmas Eve, but then left. None of us knew where he went. He had told us that he had some special meeting for AA because holidays could get really bad for them, but I didn't believe it, and what kind of meeting takes freaking two days. If he couldn't come up with a better excuse, that was his fault. All of us knew that he was lying, but no one really wanted to go up and question to him. We just let him go on his little merry way.
On the days that Edward was over we actually talked to each other. With the both of us, things were still progressing as usual, the best way they could. I didn't think this past week would go as smoothly as it had, but it did, and if I was being honest with myself, I would say that I really like how things have been going. I could tell that everyone was happy about how much improvement Edward and I were both making. I was still nowhere near being his friend again, but things were still good.
The only time Edward was a complete ass was whenever Felix had come over. I had invited him over a couple of times for our game nights and it was always fun, but a little awkward at times because of Edward. I wanted him to deal the fact that Felix was my friend, but he would get all pissy and throw a fit like a little girl.
I didn't care about what Edward said or thought about Felix, he was more of a friend to me right now then Edward was, and Felix was still going to hang out with us wither he liked it or not. Right now though, I've been getting this feeling that no one else really liked Felix either. Anytime I would ask them what they thought of him, they would put on their fake smiles and say he was great, but I know they are lying, but if they didn't want to tell me, that was their problem, so until they give me a reason to hate him and stop hanging out with Felix, I was still going to.
It was now New Years Eve day, and us girls were trying to put things together. We were out shopping to buy loads of junk food and some New Years Eve toys, like noise makers, and small fireworks. We couldn't buy any champagne, so we went ahead and bought a bunch of Apple sparkling cider, and a few grape flavored, because they're my favorite.
"Just letting you guys know, I invited Felix tonight." We were walking down the chip and cracker aisle and I saw both Alice and Rose cringe a bit then regain composure trying to hide it.
"Okay you guys, what is it?"I tossed a box of Wheat Thins in the cart and stopped in front of it.
"It's nothing Bella" Rose tried to reassure, but I knew it wasn't an honest reassurance.
"Bull Shit! I know you guys are hiding something. Now tell me!"
Both of them exchanged looks.
"It's not that we don't like Felix. He seems like a pretty good guy, but as I remember he wasn't all that great in high school." Alice sighed.
"What are you talking about Alice? He was one of the people that saved me when you guys weren't there."
"No, no, you're right. He was there for you. It's just that he was such an ass to Edward."
"Don't you see why?!" I threw my hands into the air.
"We do see that, but he was that way even before you guys started fighting." Rose stated.
"I don't know, maybe he knew Edward better than I thought I did." I shrugged my shoulders.
"Bella, that can't be it."
"You know I don't care about that. I am trying to move on from the past." I turned and started walking down the aisle again.
"How are you supposed to do that when you don't even talk about it?!" Rose shouted out pushing the cart a little faster to catch up to me.
"I will. Just drop it okay." They don't seem to understand that it's not really easy going up to the person that caused so many scares that have started to heal and just so they can be ripped open again, and possibly have a little lemon juice squirted on them to make it worse than before.
"Whatever, besides that, he still at times can be kind of a douche to Edward." Alice tossed in a bag of salt and vinegar chips.
"And Edward is kind of a douche to him" I finished for her. "I don't see any problem. Felix has been nothing but nice to me, while Edward on the other hand has just started."
"Okay, enough beating around the bush." Rose huffed, "We're really afraid that he's going to say something to James."
I stopped moving when she said that. I never really thought about that. I had completely forgotten that Felix's brother was James himself.
"I really didn't think about that. I guess it really shouldn't matter right now."
"What are you talking about? Of course it matters. If he comes back, who knows what he will do." Alice put off.
"Yeah if. Don't you think that if Felix wanted to tell James that Edward was back and I was different, he would've done it already? If he was the ass you guys are saying he is, wouldn't he have done it?" Neither of them said anything. "I thought so." I then resumed the grocery shopping.
Once we had everything checked out and in the car, we headed back home.
"Bella, when we get back do you want to go to the gym with us?" Alice asked as she drove the car.
"I don't know. You guys know how I feel about using the gym." I really didn't like working out in public, it made me feel awkward knowing that there could be a bunch of people staring at you as you lifted weights, or even some perverts watching you as you ran on the treadmill. I really didn't like it.
"Oh, come on Bella." Rose started to whine. "The guys are going to go too."
At that thought I saw both Rose and Alice start to drool thinking about their men shirtless, lifting, heavy weights and watching their muscles clench and unclench as they flexed…and…and…sweat falling off his chest sliding down into his very well-defined V curve while his usual disarray of bronze hair was even messier and slightly sticking to his forehead and in his green eyes because of the swe-
Wait…what the fuck am I doing?
"Bella...Bella? Are you okay?" I heard Rose asking over and over again waving a hand in front of my face.
"Uhhh…Yeah" I shook my head breaking out of my trance. "I'm good."
Both of them started to look at me suspiciously. I didn't realize that we were now parked in the driveway.
"Are you sure you are alright? You're kind of breathing heavily." Alice questioned.
"I'm sure. I'm just getting a really bad headache." I started to rub my forehead for effect so that they would believe me.
They both seemed to believe me, so we got out of the car and unloaded it, taking everything into the kitchen.
"So we're going to head to the gym, and I take it you're not going to go." Rose asked once everything was unloaded and put away for later tonight.
"You took it right." I told her. "I think I'm going to go lay down or something."
"Well, have fun! We're off." Both Alice and Rose headed out the door with me following them to the doorway.
"Bye guys, see you later." I waved them off before shutting the door.
I stayed there leaning up against the door for a moment trying to think of something to do when I saw my yoga mat leaning up against the wall in the family room and decided that I was what I was going to do.
I made it a habit to do yoga when I was really stressed out or needed something to do and right now, I was kind of going through both.
I went upstairs and got changed into my booty shorts and tank top; I usually wear this kind of outfit only when I'm doing yoga and also when I'm alone. Being able to move around freely with out to many restraints is nice, but having other people around when that's all I'm wearing, is not. The reason? I'm still really shy about my body. I know that I have the toned muscles and everything and my bulging stomach is now gone, but I'm so used to hiding my body from everyone. It's become really difficult for me to start showing myself off.
I laid out the mat in the family room on the floor and was following the instructor on the TV. I didn't know how long I was doing it for, but I really didn't care. It was really relaxing and calming, and I was enjoying every minute of it.
Then the door burst open.
Oh God, no.
"Hahahahaha...and then she was like, 'it's not hard enough' and then I was like…BELLA! What the hell are you doing?!!"
I was in the middle of doing a downward facing dog with my ass high up into the air facing those who were now in the room.
I stood up so fast that my head started to spin and turned to see everyone standing by the doorway wearing their gym clothes. How long was I doing yoga for?
"Hey guys" I nervously waved my hands at them.
"What the hell were you doing? What the hell are you wearing?!" Emmett started shouting. That is when I realized what exactly I was wearing, practically nothing.
"Umm…" I folded my arms across my chest.
"You shouldn't be wearing that stuff when we have people around, plus its freaking freezing!"
"Oh hush Emmett. She looks hot. You're not used to seeing her like this because she's always covered in baggy clothes, even when she goes swimming." Alice deafened me walking up next to Emmett and hitting him on the shoulder.
"Damn woman! You should wear clothes like that more often." Rose cheered.
"Look, you even have Edward here speechless." Jasper said patting Edward on the shoulder as Emmett glared at all of them.
Oh shit. Edward.
I slowly moved my head to see Edward standing there. I could feel his eyes raking up my body, but I couldn't meet his gazes. Once I did look up into his face, it was pretty much expressionless, except for his eyes.
They weren't filled with disgust like I thought they would, but full of something else I couldn't quite make it out because he was hiding it.
It was then, for the first time in years, I felt heat run up my neck onto my cheeks, getting hotter by the second, and I couldn't stop it.
"OH MY GOD!" Both Alice and rose shouted and squealed, and they started towards me.
"You're blushing!" Alice squeaked.
I looked back at Edward and saw something that I haven't seen in a long time; that heart stopping crooked smile that I fell for back when we were still in middle school.
Oh shit. This can't be happening.
I ran past everyone who were still standing near the door in awe and ran up the stairs slamming my bedroom door, locking it behind me, so that no one could get in. I leaned my back against the door and put the palm of my hand to my cheek. It was still warm, if not hotter.
I couldn't believe it. How is it that the one person that I loathed so much could be the one to make me blush again?
I didn't come down for the rest of the day until it was absolutely necessary, which was when we were supposed to start putting food together for tonight. Plus Felix was coming over soon and I had to be down there for that, incase Edward answers the door and tells him to get out.
I got up off the computer and got dressed into some comfortable jeans and my Gears of War tee shirt that I got at Hot Topic for Christmas covering as much skins as possible.
"Well there you are." Rose said once I had entered the kitchen to help out.
"We didn't think you were ever going to come out." Alice was taking out the crackers and putting them into a bowl.
"I kind of had to come out sooner or later. I have Felix still coming over and I wanted to be the one to answer the door just to be safe." I went over and started pulling out beans, avocados, sour cream, and peppers to make a bean dip.
"True. Now, what was with you blushing?!" Rose had stopped mixing together the strawberry Bacardi that she was making with Sprit, rather than alcohol, and Alice joined her.
"It was nothing guys." I continued making the bean dip trying to act like the fact that I blushed was really no big deal.
"It didn't seem like nothing. That is the first time you have blushed in years and all you can say it that 'it was nothing?'" Rose started mocking.
"I don't know what to tell you guys. I don't know why I did it." I shrugged.
"Oh, but we think we know why you did it." Alice and Rose both looked at each other then back at me so that Rose cold start wiggling her eyebrows at me. I darted my eyes back and forth between them. I could tell that they were up to something.
"I am glad that you two think you know, because I don't."
"Don't worry, you'll figure it out soon enough." Rose said with a mysterious tone.
I gawked and shook my head at both of them for a minute then the doorbell sounded. I stepped away from the bean dip I was making and ran towards the door.
"I got it, I got it." I started shouting as I saw that Edward was about to answer it and ran in front of him pushing him back.
"You. Go sit back down." I started pushing him away from the door.
"Jeez Bella, calm down, it's only the door. I think I could've answered it myself." I ignored him and opened the door.
"Hey!" Felix smiled as soon as the door was open and he saw me. Edward on the other hand growled in disgust and went back to the family room with the guys.
"I take it he's not happy to see me?"
"When has he ever been?" I rolled my eyes. "Come in" I moved out of the way and motioned for him to come inside.
"I brought some champagne to help ring in the New Year." He held out the fine bottle of champagne to me as he came into the house.
"Oh thanks Felix" I took the bottle from him hesitantly, "But we don't have any alcohol around here." I glanced over at Edward who was sitting in a chair facing the TV with a grumpy look on his face.
"Oh, sorry. I guess I kind of forgot." I saw him glance over at Edward as well.
"What do you mean you forgot? How did you even know?" He started chuckling softly as he finished entering the house and moved towards the living room.
"My brother is James, is he not?" He was talking softly. "I know what my brother was up to, and kind of still up to, and I know that Edward was there with him a lot of the time."
At that I felt myself get a little angry. I grabbed his arm and pulled him into another room away from everyone.
"If you knew what Edward was doing, why didn't you stop him?" I hissed at him. "You could've prevented a lot of the things that have happened to him, happen."
"I could've, but do you honestly think he would have listened to me. Would it change him from being the dickhead he was to you in school? I don't think it would've. Plus he really didn't start doing all the hard drinking and everything until after you left."
"Still Felix, you should've done something! I mean, it was your brother too!"
"That's the thing Bella, it wasn't only my brother; it was also my father." I took a step back for a minute. "Who do you think supplied the drugs? And how did you think we became so rich?"
I really didn't know what to say. All I could do was shake my head.
"See, my life hasn't been all roses and kisses like some people think, but I knew what you were going through, that's why I stood up for you. I knew what it's like to have an ass riding you and take complete pleasure in demolishing you. I actually had two of them, while you, you did have a few more than me, but I do understand.
"Why didn't you say nor do anything."
"As much as I would've loved to, I couldn't. They were still family and no matter what I loved them. I don't know why, but I did, it's not like it mattered anyway. James has run off, but still talks to me, but I don't know where he is, and my dad, he is sitting in a jail cell, busted for selling drugs to minors, and he even was also…"Felix took in a heavy breath "he was also convicted of rape, so he'll be there for awhile."
I went over and gave him a hug. Even though his dad got what he deserved, I still felt bad for him. He was all alone and didn't have anyone.
"I'm sorry" I whispered into his ear.
"It's not your fault. I know that you've been through hard times as well and it's not right to think about my difficulties when I'm really not the only one who has gone through them." Felix took my hands and gave them a kiss. "Now, let's get back in there I'm getting a little hungry." He started to rub his stomach.
"Lets" I agreed and we left the room. "You're going to have to go in there with the guys and hang out while I put this in the kitchen and grab the food." He nodded his head and went into the family room while I took the bottle of champagne into the kitchen where the girls were preparing the rest of the food.
"So how did it go out there? I didn't hear any screaming or cursing." Rose teased.
"Nope, I got to the door first, although Edward did try to beat me to it. And when I answered all he really did was grumble and storm off into the family room." I put the bottle of champagne into the pantry.
"What the hell is that?!" Alice started to shout as she saw the bottle.
"It's nothing, just something that Felix brought over by accident." I hurried and slammed the door shut.
"Like hell its nothing! Who the fuck does he think he is bringing in that stuff!" Her voice rising louder and louder.
"Alice, chill, please! He didn't know."
Alice started to grumble something underneath her breath and went back to what she was doing.
"Is everything ready?" I asked after I grabbed a few bottles of sparkling cider and the noise makers for the countdown.
"Sure are, let's take all this out and go set it on the table." Rose started picking up a couple platters of food, and I followed behind her with the drinks.
As soon as we set everything out on the table we told the boys that they could grab a dish and get themselves some food. Emmett of course was the first one at the table pausing the game that they were playing.
They all one by one came over to the table except of Edward he stayed sitting in the chair looking out at the window. Felix came over and gave me a smile. I smiled back at him, and decided to go talk to Edward.
"Edward." He didn't say anything so I knelt down in front of him.
"Edward, you and I both know that you won't be able to ignore each other all night with the friends that we have so what's the point in trying." He only grumped.
"I know that you hate Felix, but will you please do me a favor for once and try to be civilized around him for once, for me." He looked over at me and I started to plead with him using my eyes. He didn't say anything for a few minutes, he just looked at me.
"Bella, I am not going to pretend I like him, but I guess I will try to be a little bit civilized." He sighed.
"Thank you." I stood up from my knees and patted his hand, and yet again just like at the hospital I felt a shock go through me but I just ignored it and went over to the table with Edward following behind me.
"Wow Bella, this stuff looks delicious." Felix exclaimed and I swear I could hear Edward roll his eyes behind me.
"Thanks Felix, but it wasn't only me, it was Rose and Alice as well."
"Well, ladies, you did a great job."
"Thanks" Both and Alice mumbled a little bit and I stomped on their feet.
Once everyone grabbed their food, since it was more like a buffet set up we all went into the living room to watch the boys finish their game, before we all played something together.
"So what game do you want to play?" Emmett asked as soon they finished their game and put his arms around Rose.
"I Know!" Alice yelped and as fast as lightning she jumped off of Jasper's lap ran upstairs to grab a game and came back down holding Twister in her little hands.
"No, no, no!" I started chanting over and over as I got up off the floor and grabbed the game out of Alice's hands.
"Aww.. Come on Bella" Rose started to whine along with everyone else.
"No you guys already know how clumsy I'm and I'm pretty sure that having me on a slippery mat with a bunch of other people on it will end up in a big disaster. I don't want to end up with someone on top of me or me on them."
"Isn't that what makes this game so much fun?" Jasper said.
"Yeah Bella, come on, it will be fun. Who knows what can happen." Alice agreed with Jasper.
"Bella, if you play I'll make sure that you don't end up hurting anyone or yourself." Felix replied from the floor.
"Bella, if you don't play, I'll tell everyone about what you saw that one night you were over and we were playing Donkey Kong." Edward started to tease while I gave him a dirty look.
"You wouldn't!" I said darkly growling.
The story is that when I was over at his place on night, we were up late playing Donkey Kong when we both started to hear some noises. Being only about 11 at the time neither of us knew what it was and Edward was too scared to get up himself and figure out what it was. His parents were supposed to be out for the night and they trusted us enough to be left alone as long as we had kept the door lock and stayed up in his room.
Well, we went out to figure out what the sound was and it was coming from Edward's parent's room. Let's just say that the next day we got the bird and the bees talk from them. It was so fucking embarrassing, I used to blush every time I thought about it, and trust me I never I want to think about that again. It has kind of scarred me for life, considering Carlisle and Esme are like second parents to me.
Edward merely laughed it off, but I couldn't. It was embarrassing. All he would say is that 'it's only embarrassing if you care about what other people think"
"O I would," he replied, "and plus I would really see if those yoga moves help you out at all." He said in my ear as he passed by me to grab the game out of Alice's hands and set it up. Yet again I felt heat rise to my cheeks.
"Oh my god! Are you blushing again?" Alice asked with a high pitched tone.
"Wow, Edward must have really let Pandora out of the box, because you know he never really goes back in once you let him out, just like your blush now." Rose taunted.
"It's nothing you guys, just really hot in here." I started to whine.
"Yeah and Emmett here loves to eat salads." Jasper started to laugh.
I didn't say anything after that. I groaned and sat back on the floor next to Felix who looked really lost at this moment.
"So, who goes first?" Edward asked as soon as the pad was flat on the ground.
"How about we have Bella, Emmett, Felix, and Rose go first?" Alice suggested and I heard Edward groan.
"No, how about I spin." I picked up the wheel and held it up in my hands.
"Nope, I'll do that this round." Edward snagged it out of my hands "Now get your butt over there." Edward pointed towards the mat, and Felix stood up, helping me up after.
"Now we all know the rules right, if your knee or elbow touches the ground you're out, and if you fall over, you're out as well. Let's get started." Edward flicked his finger on the spinner and we all watched it spin for a moment before it finally stopped.
"Right hand red." We all reached out and put our hands on a red circle some of us had to reach across the board while others had it right in front of them.
"Left foot blue." Again we put our foot where he called.
This continued for a few minutes longer and soon we were all tangled together. I had my hand woven under Rose and my foot was up over her back leg, while Emmett was practically suffocating Felix.
"Left foot green."
"Shit!" Emmett and Felix both reached for the same green, but Emmett got there first pushing Felix out of the way as he fell to the ground. Everyone started laughing.
A few more colors were called and now it was only Rose and I standing.
"Right hand red." I reached my hand clear across the board and touched the red with my fingers while my body was contorted in a really awkward fashion. Rose tried to reach for it but fell to the ground instead.
"While, it looks like your yoga did help you out." Edward said as he handed me the wheel. "Wonder what else you can do because of it." I started at him as he made his way over to the board with the rest of the guys. Did he really say that?
The game continued on like this for a couple more rounds and every time Felix played I could swear that they were pushing him and causing him to fall, especially Edward. He would purposely move himself in the right way so that Felix would collapse to the ground.
"Okay, now it's time for Bella, Emmett, me, and Edward!" Alice called out as I made my way over to the board with Edward standing right in front of me smiling.
"Left hand green." I bent my hand so it landed on the green dot in front of me while Edward reached across and put his hand on the dot next to mine.
"Left foot Red" We all moved and Edward positioned himself so that he was facing me, but I didn't look at him, I kept my eyes on my foot that I had put down.
"Right foot yellow" He placed his foot in the yellow circle nearest me so that I had to wrap my leg around his to get to the other yellow that was behind his foot and Emmett's as well making me start to bend backwards a little bit.
"Right hand blue."
He moved his huge hand to the blue circle that was above my head making me move mine to the on underneath him.
I swear he was doing this all on purpose. Now here I was with my back bent backwards and the rest of my body contorted in a ridiculous way and Edward hovering above me. I could feel his chest rise and fall against mine as we waited for the next move to be called out. I really didn't have anywhere else to look. Neither of us did, so we just looked at each other.
I looked over at Alice who had an evil smile on her face and shared it with Emmett. She began moving causing Emmett to move and shake and then eventually she fell taking Emmett down with her. Like dominos Edward fell right behind Emmett, taking me with him.
I let out a little yelp as I fell to the ground holding on to Edward, as if he could help prevent me from hurting myself. I still ended up hitting my head first.
At that moment I was on the ground laughing along with Edward. I could feel his chest up against mine rippling with laughter. His face buried in my shoulder sending vibrations up the side of my neck.
As our laughing slowly started to fade; Edward lifted up his head from my shoulder and looked me in the eyes holding me under his intense gaze that felt as if they were burning a whole into my face. While his eyes were filled with mixed emotions that I could not decipher, I didn't really know what mine was holding, I was so confused right now. I didn't know what to think.
"How much longer are you guys going to lay there? Or do you two want to be left alone?" Rose was trying to hold in her laughter.
I realized the position I was in with Edward laying on top of me. One of my legs was up on his hip and the other in-between his legs, my hands were holding tightly on to his shoulders. One of his own hands was holding onto my thigh that was resting near his hip, while the other was holding tightly to my waist.
I immediately removed myself from under him and straightened my clothes out while Edward slowly stood up with a slanted smile on his face.
As I scanned the room I could see everyone was trying to hold in their laughter at the scene that was played out in front of him, but Felix…Felix, now he looked pissed off. He tried to cover it with a smile when I looked at him, so I just smiled back at him shyly.
"What time is it?" I asked with a slight high pitched tone. Alice giggled a little at my composure.
"Oh man!" she looked at the time on the DVD player, "They should be starting the countdown soon." She ran over and turned on the TV to Rockefeller Plaza where the ball will drop. Right now they had Katy Perry on singing "I kissed a girl," with the boys singing along with it.
After a few more artists came on and sang, the countdown started.
10…Everyone started to count along.
9…I gave everyone one of those pull fireworks that has confetti in it that come out the top once you pull it.
8…Emmett grabs a bottle of sparkling cider.
7…Alice and Rose grab some noise makers.
6…the ball is dropping lower.
5…everyone starts to stand up.
4…Everyone started to couple up, except for me, Edward, and Felix.
3…and lower it drops.
2…Alice holds on to jasper tightly and Rose does the same to Emmett.
"HAPPY NEW YEAR!" We all start shouting and making nose with our noise makers. Confetti flies everywhere across the room as Emmett opens the bottle of sparkling cider gulping it down. Rose shoves the bottle out of the way and replaces it with her mouth. Alice does the same to Jasper, while I give Felix a big hug.
"Don't I get at least a peck on cheek?" Felix asked with a small pout. I lean over and give him a quick peck. Out of the corner of my eye I could see Edward's fists clenched tightly.
"What about me?" Edward pointed to his cheek, as soon as I pulled away from Felix.
"Sorry, but I don't think so. You've had all the physical contact you'll ever get from me." I folded my arms across my chest. Edward frowned at me. I saw Felix who had a smug grin on his face causing Edward to clench his fists again. I knew he was really holding back, I could see it in his face. He was trying.
"What the fuck are you so smug about?" Edward growled at him.
"Oh nothing, just happy, that's all."
"Happy about what? That you are about to have my foot shoved up your ass!" Edward strode right up to Felix shoving his face into Felix's. I swear Edward saw something that I couldn't see in Felix, or something I didn't want to.
"What the hell is your problem?" Felix got right up into Edward's face as well.
"At the moment, you're my problem." Edward yells.
"Why can't you stand the fact that Bella actually has a friend that is actually willing to stick up for her rather than tear her apart for their own personal enjoyment?"
"Felix, you shut up right now. I know for a fucking fact that you aren't as holy and righteous as you pretend to be. I know what you are up too!" Edward was in rage now. What was Felix up to that has Edward so on edge? Why can't he stand that Felix is my friend and is going to be? Why does he hate him so much to begin with?
"You know what" Felix stood back, "I'm going to go before this ends badly. I'm going to be the better person and leave. I don't want to end up hurting you and causing Bella pain in the process"
"Wait Felix, you don't have to go." I pleaded with him.
"No Bella, I do." He headed towards the door and opened it. "I'll see you later Bella, I had a great time." I couldn't help but notice the fake smile he held when he said that. As he left he leaned forward and gave me a quick kiss on the cheek and left."
I shut the door and left out an aggravated sigh.
"Bella, I'm sorry." Edward apologized. "I-"
"I know Edward, I really do. I told you to be civilized and you did a good job at it. I know that you tried your best at behaving around him. I'm kind of tired, so I think I'm going to head off to bed."
Edward started to say something behind me as I went up the stairs to my room, but all I wanted to do right now was sleep.
I hope you guys liked it. It didn't really turn out the way I wanted it to, but this will have to do, nothing seemed right as I wrote it out.
Next chapter will have…can you guess…that's right James! That one I really do have all planed out and something else will come out in the next chapter. The more reviews I get, the sooner I will post it.
