Chapter 8

"Edward where the hell are you!" the sound of Alice's voice sounded, "You and Bella were supposed to be home by now!"

Oh shit.

"Alice-"Edward tried to speak.

"Don't you 'Alice' me Edward; you were supposed to be back over an hour ago!" She shrieked.

"Alice I-"

"I don't want your pathetic excuses-"

"ALICE!" he finally screamed into the phone.

"What?" she said.

"If you would shut your mouth for one minute you would understand that I am trying to tell you why we are not home yet," Edward grumbled.


"We had a little…mishap…while we were at the store and we are currently sorting through it." He explained.

"What happened?" she asked as if she didn't believe him.

"It wa-"

"Just some trouble with an old ex from Arizona Alice, don't worry about it." I interrupted Alice, my voice was still very scratchy and it sounded horrible.

"Bella sweetie, are you ok?" she asked her voice full of concern.

"I'm fine Alice, don't worry about it. Although we didn't really get anything from the store because we left right away, sorry." I apologized.

"Don't worry about it," she brushed it off, "we can always go to the store a different time."

"Ok," I mumbled.

"Well you guys should get back soon unless you have anything else you need to do."

"Ok Alice we are going to hang up now," Edward said as he hit the end button.

"What time is it?" I asked tiredly.

"It's about one in the afternoon," he sighed.

"I don't want to go back and face Alice," I whined.

"Don't worry love we both will have to face her, although she is mostly likely not the worst of what is to come." Edward snuggled his face into my hair.

"What makes you say that?" I asked.

"Well it's most likely that my mother and your brother have been freaking out not knowing where you have been and it's most likely going to result in some heavy questioning from both of them." He sighed as I groaned.

"Can't we just go and hide back at my house?" I asked pleadingly.

"Sorry, but you know that Emmett will be there looking for you," Edward pointed out.

"Then I suppose we should just get it over with shouldn't we," I unwillingly said.

"That would probably be a good idea," Edward chuckled. He stood up and put me back in my seat, buckling me up and shutting the door as he ran to his side of the car and got into the driver's seat. The drive back was silent, but it was a comfortable silence so we didn't mind.

When we turned onto the winding driveway, I could almost feel Alice's energy and I swear I could even hear the questions that she would want to be asking me in my head.


Oh wait, that was her running up the driveway, arms flailing everywhere as she sprinted to the car.

"Bella Bella Bella Bella!" She screamed.

"Want me to run her over?" Edward chuckled.

"As much as that would be nice, I'm sure Esme wouldn't be very happy with us if that happened." I smiled slightly.

"Fine," He grumbled.

"Isabella Marie Swan Open this god damn door!" Alice screamed. I didn't even realize that she had started to run with the car and was pounding on the windows trying to get in.

"I knew there was a good reason for locking the doors," Edward mumbled as he started to speed up and we left Alice behind in the dust.

"EDWARD!" she screeched as we sped away. We couldn't help but to start laughing at her angry expression. She disappeared as we went around one of the bends of the twisty driveway. It wasn't long after that when we got to the house, both of us still laughing.

"Quick! Let's go to my room before she gets here!" Edward said between laughs. I opened my door to see Alice almost at the house.

"Isabella and Edward!" She screamed.

"Shit," I breathed.

"Bella hurry up!" Edward grabbed my hand, threw me over his shoulder, and ran into the house. He didn't even pause to talk to Esme as he took the stairs two, sometimes three at a time. He ran down the hall and into his bedroom, Alice hot on our heels as he slammed his door shut and quickly locked the door. You could hear the distinct thump as Alice ran into the door.

"Well," Edward said breathing hard, "nothing like a chase from Alice to bring up a grim mood."

I could only look at him seriously for about thirty seconds before we both started laughing. We calmed down fairly quickly as we moved to the bed. Edward lay next to me and I curled into his chest, feeling a sense of security as his arms wrapped themselves around me.

"Hey Edward?" I asked with a sleepy yawn.

"Yes love?"

"Do you think I'll ever be able to just have a normal life?" I whispered.

"No I don't think you will, want to know why?"

"Do tell me," I mumbled.

"Because you are an amazing person and are far from normal." He kissed my temple lovingly.

"I love you Edward," I sighed as I started to drift asleep.

"As I love you my sweet girl," were the last words before everything started to darken around me until everything was black as I entered a deep sleep.


Thump Thump Thump.

What the hell was that awful noise?

"Isabella!" Thump. "Edward!" Thump.

"Mmmmmm, go away Alice!" Edward moaned sleepily.

"Edward Anthony, answer me!" Alice screeched.

"Why won't she go away?" I grumbled.

"Because she has no life," Edward groaned.


"I heard that!" Alice yelled.

"Then go away!" Edward yelled.

"No, it's time for you two to come out already." Alice whined. "Not to mention mom won't let us eat until you guys come down for dinner and Emmett is getting irritated." It was dinner time already? How long were we asleep, four or five hours?

"We must have really taken quite the nap," I yawned while I stretched.

"Although it was the best nap that I have ever had," Edward said as he grabbed me around my waist and pulled me into his chest and buried his nose into my hair in the crook of my neck.

"Edward," I moaned, "that tickles."

"Are you ticklish my love?" Edward chuckled.

"No," I said stubbornly.

"I think you are," he said as he started to tickle my sides.

"Edward!" I laughed, "Stop tickling me!"

"Will you give me a kiss?"

"Yes!" I laughed harder, I turned towards Edward and kissed his nose, "There are you happy now?" I giggled.

"I suppose," Edward gave a heavy, sarcastic sigh.

"Come on lets go downstairs before we have Emmett coming up here to get us. He would most likely break down the door to get us so he could eat."

"Do you really think that he would do that?" I gave him the look that clearly says are-you-really-going-to-argue-with-me-on-this? "Ok, ok we'll go downstairs." I grumbled.

"Don't worry it won't be that bad, at least I hope not." I muttered sadly.

"Bella?" Edward asked, "Is something wrong?"

"It's just," I trailed off.

"It's just what?"

"I know that I'm going to be asked questions about what happened today and I don't want to deal with that." I sighed.

"Bella," Edward sighed, "Bella look at me." I looked up slowly.

"We will do this together, I will help you through everything so you are never alone. Do you trust me? Do you trust me to always be there for you?" I looked into his emerald eyes; they shone with honesty and serenity. He held out his hand for me. Slowly I reached out and grabbed it.
"Together?" I whispered.

"Together," He smiled, I smiled a small smile and grabbed his hand.

"Let's go then."
