A.N/ Hey everyone! So things have been kind of hectic around here to say the least. A big ice storm hit and caused most of the state to lose power and my school still doesn't have it back. That means more time for writing! This chapter is short I know, but I couldn't think of a better way to end it so I left it where I did. I hope you guys enjoy it! Special thanks to my Beta and 4everbellaxedward for reviewing cause you were my only review!
I woke the next morning to Edward gently pressing his lips to mine. I smiled and kissed him back.
"Good morning, love. It's time to get up," he whispered.
"Can't we call in sick?" I asked, not willing to move.
"I wish I could say yes, but we can't. Now get up before I pick you up and throw you in the shower," he said. He meant it as a threat, but sharing a shower with him didn't sound bad at all.
"I wouldn't mind that," I said with a smile.
"Okay," he sighed. Then he picked me up and carried me to the shower. He put me down in the shower and quickly turned the water on then jumped out of the way before he got wet.
I screamed. The water was freezing cold and I still had my clothes on. "Edward, you suck!"
"You would know," he laughed. "Really though I have to go I'll see you later." He turned the water off and kissed me gently. He wasn't getting away that easily. I wrapped my soaking arms around him and got him drenched as well.
"Bye," I said then pushed him out of the bathroom so I could really take a shower.
The rest of the morning was uneventful other than the fact that Luke walked into my room and told me that he hated me.
"Why?" I had asked.
"Because the whole way to school all I heard was how awful you were and how pissed off Edward is that you got him soaked because then the leather on his seats got wet. Because of you Edward was outrageously annoying this morning," he huffed then walked to his seat.
Lunch came and I went to Edward's class room. "Hey," I said when he walked out.
"Hello, Isabella," he said walking right past me.
"Oh, I see, you're still mad about this morning," I said.
"Damn straight," he said walking away from me.
"Well Mr. Mason, is there some way I can make it up to you?" I asked, giving him puppy dog eyes.
"As a matter of fact, yes. You could take Lauren out of my class," he said with hopeful eyes.
"Ha! Not a chance in hell!" I said.
"I figured. Oh well, I guess I'll forgive you anyway. But only because your so gorgeous," he said smiling.
The rest of the day went by smooth as silk. As I was leaving school I saw Edward.
"Hello, love," he said.
"Really still not necessary. If you guys are going to start making out please let me know so I can leave," Luke said with utter disgust in his voice.
"No worries, we won't scar you today," I said.
"Good," he said.
"Oh, Bella I wanted to know if you would come over tonight," Edward said then saw that Luke was still there. He quickly recovered with an excuse, "To, you know, look at some of these essays with me."
"You want her to look at something alright," Luke grumbled.
"Luke, shut up. Get in the car," Edward said.
"With pleasure," Luke rolled his eyes and began walking away. He turned back around, "Behave you two, don't have to much fun. Some things should be left for marriage."
"Car. NOW!" Edward yelled. Luke walked away with out another word.
"So, you want me to come over to have sex?" I asked jokingly.
"As wonderful as that sounds, that's really not what I meant. I just wanted to spend some time with you. Besides, you haven't been to my apartment yet."
"Yeah, I'll come over. But I don't know where it is."
"I'll pick you up at eight. Jasper, Alice, Emmet, and Rose will be there too," he said then kissed me good bye.
I got into my car and drove to my apartment. I opened the door to see a very angry looking Alice sitting in my kitchen. "There you are. I thought you fell off the face of the earth," she shrieked.
I forced a laugh, "No, I've just been busy."
"Busy with what? Or should I say whom?"
I felt a blush creep to my cheeks. "No one," I said.
"Liar! You've been with Edward haven't you?" she accused.
" Maybe I have," I said, moving to sit next to her.
"Have you finally been getting some?" she asked. Her eyes danced at the possibility.
I sighed, "No, but that's okay. I don't need to have sex to be happy with him." It was the truth, he could tell me he never wanted to have sex and I would still want to be with him.
"You are no fun. Next time you don't talk to me for three days you better have something more exciting to tell me," she said getting up to leave.
"That's it? You are just leaving. I haven't talked to you in three days and you are just going to leave?"
"Yep. I'll see you later tonight, remember?" she said as though it were obvious.
"Right, sorry. Bye darling." With that she left. The rest of my afternoon was unproductive until Edward came.
I opened the door, expecting to see his shining face, instead I was met by the love of my life with tears streaking down his angelic features.
"What's wrong?" I asked, panic clear in my voice.
"There's… been an accident," he sobbed.
"Edward, what is it? What's wrong?" I asked again.
"I… I…" he continued to sob. I wrapped my arms around his broad frame and lead him into the house. When he seemed composed I asked again what had happened.
"Luke's been in an accident," he said, trying to act normal.
"What kind of an accident?" If anything happened to that little boy I would kill the person responsible.
"A car hit him, he was walking to Angela's house and it came out of no where," he said, fighting back tears.
"Is he alright?" I could feel my heart about to shatter.
"No," was all he said.
I let a single tear roll down my cheek and then grabbed his hand and together we made our way to the hospital.
"Carlisle! Carlisle!" I called through out the halls.
"Ms. Swan may I help you?" Jessica asked.
"Yes, where the hell is Carlisle?" I almost yelled.
"He's with a personal patient and won't be out for a while, so maybe you and your…" she looked over Edward and paused at our entwined fingers, "boyfriend, should come back later."
"Listen, you snotty, two faced, bi…" I was cut off by Esme.
"Jessica now is not the time, you know our family is in an emergency and Bella and Edward are our family just let them in!" she yelled.
"Yes, ma'am," Jessica said with fake enthusiasm.
"Thank God you are here," she gushed then led us to the room where Luke was.
Tears formed in her eyes, "My baby boy might not make it."
"He'll be fine, Esme. Just you wait and see, he'll be fine," I told her soothingly, though I didn't believe it.
"No, he won't!" she sobbed, "He's lost too much blood and he hit his head!"
"It will be fine. He is a strong boy, he'll make it," Edward said, hugging his aunt gently.
"I hope so," she sobbed.
"Why don't you go down to the cafeteria and get something to eat?" I suggested.
"We will stay with Luke," Edward added.
"Okay," she sniffled then gave us each a hug and left.
We walked into the small room and I saw an image that still haunts me to this day. Brave, imaginative Luke was on a bed, white as snow, his head covered in gauze. His eyes were closed and swollen to an extreme, and bruises covered most of his face. His teeth were hidden under his lips but the breathing tub made it possible to see that they had clearly been chipped. I felt tears roll down my cheeks and looked over at Edward to see he had a perfect mask on his face that showed no fear, it showed no emotion. I studied the boy once more willing for him to just be asleep, however one look at his beautiful face and you knew that was not true.
I was torn from my thoughts when the door swung open and a young girl entered the room tears already in her eyes.
"Luke!" she shouted. Sobs soon took over her. She ran to the bed, right past Edward and I, and hugged the boy's broken body tightly. "Don't leave me, Luke," she sobbed. "Don't leave me. I need you. Please don't go. I need you, you big idiot. You have to make it."
His hand twitched for the slightest second and he groaned, then unconsciousness took him over once again and we were left to worry. Things did not look very bright at the moment.
"Luke," Angela groaned. "Luke," she sobbed again as she noticed he was gone again. Edward and I tried to pry her away from his still body but she would have none of it. "Would you leave if it were Ms. Swan?" she asked Edward. Then she turned to me, "I know you wouldn't leave if it were Mr. Mason. Don't make me leave," she said, tears still streamed from her blood shot eyes.
"Never," I whispered. Then Edward and I left the crying girl with her limp boyfriend.
