So ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Eye of the Storm, Bella's Part Three.
My head swung around at the sound of my name and the voice that belonged to it. Surprised but smooth as velvet. Oh God. It was Edward. I froze when I saw him round the corner, his eyes wide as he took in the scene. Of course I was between Matt and this guy, a knife pointed in my direction. Edward was always one to jump to conclusions and it shouldn't have surprised me by the way he acted. But why would he put himself in danger for me?
"Get away from her!" he cried in anger before leaping towards Matt. I suddenly feared for Edward. What would happen if this turned into a fight, and that fight a…murder. I gasped in surprise and looked away just as I heard a loud thump. My eyes opened to see Edward falling over and Matt tending to a red fist.
I did the first thing that was instinct to me. I ran to Edward and begged to the high heavens that he was all right.
"Edward!" I cried, dropping down beside him and letting my hands float close to his face. I was afraid to touch his eye, which was slowly turning blue. "Are you alright?"
It was amazing how even though he was in pain he still managed to smirk at me. "Shouldn't I be asking you that?" he asked and I shook my head, rolling my eyes.
"Always the charmer," I muttered under my breath as I slowly and hesitantly touched the bruise forming around his closed eye. My fingers lightly trailed along his cheek, turning his head so I could look at it better. As soon our skin came into contact a spark ran through my veins and I jumped, startled at the feeling. It had been so long since I had felt it and I couldn't help but rejoice. I missed this feeling so damn much.
I couldn't even listen to the conversation going on around me. All I could do was stare into Edward's emerald eyes, my heart straining again. I smiled slightly at him, trying hard to keep the tears of joy back. I felt so happy just to have him here with me again. To hear his voice, to stare into his beautiful eyes, to touch his skin. I felt like I had been dead for years and I had finally come back alive. I brushed the bronze hair that had fallen into his eyes out of the way before finally hearing Matt's threatening voice.
"So when I threaten to kill you, listen." he ended his conversation with the muscled man.
I shot my head around and glared darkly at him. I thought Matt had been good but it seemed he was all an act. A lure of protection which I didn't want anymore, not from him. "What the hell is wrong with you?" I screamed. He didn't answer me and I was beginning to become annoyed. I stood and smacked his arm as hard as I could. "Hey!"
"Edward was going to do onto me if I didn't do unto him first, weren't you Eddy?" Matt asked without looking at me. I didn't like the teasing tone he was using with Edward. He was becoming more and more annoying as time went on. Well it was at least obvious that they each other, but how?
"I'll kick you ass-" Edward's angry mutter came from behind me but Matt cut him off before he could finish.
"Don't worry Eddy," he said in another sarcastic tone. I glared balefully at him as he grabbed his bag, slinging it over his shoulder and finally putting away his knife. "I was just leaving." And he backed away and around the corner, disappearing. I breathed a sigh of relief and went to Edward again.
He still had a glare on his face as he watched the place that Matt had been standing as I checked his eye again, ignoring the muscled man who had seemed close to leaving as well. Edward looked at me again, his right eye closed as the bluish bruise continued to get worse. I sighed, touching it lightly as he winced. "Sorry," I murmured. I shook my head once before frowning at him. "Well come on. Let's go find some ice or something."
I took his hand as he pulled himself to his feet before quickly throwing his arm around my shoulders and tucking me to his side. I felt warm, comfortable…safe. I smiled shortly as we went down the hall towards what I hoped was the First Aid office. They'd have ice there wouldn't they? I nodded to myself as we turned another corner, catching people walking past up giving us odd stares. I didn't look at them, I was too busy trying hard not to look at Edward and searching for a clinic sign. That was proving hard to do because out of the corner of my eye I could see his own looking at me every once in a while. Well this wasn't a very good reunion now was it?
Finally we found the First Aid office. I quickly pulled him inside and found it empty. They were all probably tending to the blonde woman. I pulled Edward over to a chair and slowly pulled his arm from my shoulders and sat him down. "Stay," I commanded, trying to sound stern. He just gave me a lazy smile in return and I rolled my eyes. Some things never change.
I turned and quickly looked around for where they might keep ice packs. I went into a storeroom of sorts and found a refrigerator. Hoping to God there were no human body parts in this freezer I opened it and sighed in relief. I had successfully found the ice packs! Huzzah! I did a little celebratory dance in my mind before closing the freezer and taking a breath to walk out to Edward again.
He was in the same place I had left him. Good boy. I scuttled over to him and gently laid the ice pack to his eye. His hand came up and covered mine briefly, making me shiver from the differences in temperature. My palm was freezing but the top of my hand was tingling with heat. I gulped before slowly pulling my hand away and letting him hold it on his own. I sat beside him and played with my fingers, lost on how to greet him. How many years had it been?
There was an awkward silence before I looked up at him. He was looking at me through his one eye and a smile tugged on his lips when our eyes met. "So…" I started, clearing my throat in embarrassment. "Long time, no see?"
He chuckled, making me watch with concentration at his facial features. His eyes scrunched up and he grinned hugely at me while I bit my lip. I could even see the sparkle of amusement in his eyes. I missed that. I missed all of it and now here he was, right in front of me. And I said that…?
"Yeah," he said with a sigh, his smile still on his face. "It's been awhile, huh?" I nodded but found nothing else to say. How come my mind always drew a blank with Edward around? Thankfully I didn't have to think of anything as he spoke. "So, what have you been doing?" he asked, curiously.
"Oh, you know," I started lamely. "Not much. School, family, friends. I got a job." I don't know why I added that last part in there and why wasn't I spewing out my feelings? I used to be able to tell him everything. How much I hated when the Maria Rounder made fun of me. How worried I was about not graduating school. How much it hurt when I fell out of our tree. No matter what he would always listen. He would always tell me everything was going to be all right. He let me cry on his shoulder when I needed to and wiped away all my tears. But I never got to tell him how much I appreciated him. How much I loved him…and the sad thing was that I still did love him. Looking over at this grown man beside me I still saw the teenager I fell in love with. The boy who was my best friend…the boy I loved with all my heart. I pressed my lips together to keep the heavy emotions at bay before taking a breath and speaking again. "What about you? What have you been doing?" I added a small smile to make the frown that had appeared on his face disappear. He could read me like a book at times but I learned to hide my emotions better. Hopefully he would not see through me like he used to.
He went on though. "Not much either. Just the usual." The usual, like spending time with his girlfriend? His wife? He had to have someone. He was far too handsome, too intelligent, too amazing to be without a lover. A woman who was beautiful and perfect and rich unlike myself. Someone who had class. But if he did have someone, he didn't bring her up. Trying to spare my feelings? "So, what brings you to Morehead City, North Carolina?"
I paused for a moment. "Well, I was actually on my way home from a trip to Washington D.C."
He nodded before replying. "That must have been fun."
I laughed lightly and shrugged. It wasn't half as fun as the times that the two of us had gone to museums in Florida. We'd annoy the guards some times and laugh as they stumbled around trying to find us. But like myself Edward was one for knowledge and understanding. We enjoyed our little day trips to the city as we visited monuments and museums and such. I just felt happy because he was there with me. Travelling to these places alone was not as fun as I'd hoped it would be. I hoped it would take my mind off of him but all it did was dig a deeper hole in my heart. I frowned at the thought and looked over to see him lost in thought, his eye scanning the room.
"Edward," I murmured and he turned to look at me.
"Hmm?" he replied.
"You know Matt?" I asked shortly and he grimaced. I could tell he had distaste for him but for reasons that were still unknown to me.
"He's my room mate," he muttered before leaning closer to me. "I want you to stay away from him Bella." When he said my name a thrill went through me. "He's dangerous and I don't want you getting hurt, okay?"
I nodded quickly and he smiled again. "I just didn't know him before," I said. "I thought he was nice but he turned out to be…not."
He nodded in agreement but that's when I noticed how close he was to me. I found myself touching his arm lightly with my fingertips. I wanted lean my head on his shoulder. I wanted him to wrap his arms around me and hold me close, never let me go. But that was just silly talk. Edward couldn't possibly have feelings for me. He couldn't feel what I was feeling at that moment. The yearn to lean forward and press my lips to his. How missed the feeling of that! I couldn't even stop looking at his full lips, so close. But I shook my head, squeezing my eyes shut and letting out a breath. I had to control myself before I tackled him.
That thought made me smile widely as I remembered the many times I had indeed tackled him.
I was so excited! Edward was coming today! He had just called me from the airport and he told me they were on their way. I couldn't wait so I sat out on our front porch, my leg bouncing up and down where I sat on the swinging chair. Renee was watching me from her bed of roses, shaking her and muttering something about being too excited. Well dear mother I must have got that from you because you are like a child on Christmas whenever Phil is around.
Suddenly a car turned from around the corner and I jumped to my feet. I knew that car! It was Edward! He was back! He was home!
I raced down the steps and over to their front yard where the black car had just pulled into the driveway. Edward jumped out from the back seat, a large smile already on his beautiful face. He was becoming more and more tall by the minute but I didn't care. I ran straight up to him and jumped into his arms, squealing in delight. I showered kisses all over his face before finally brushing them against his lips. I missed it so much. I giggled lightly as he held me in his arms before hugging me close and burying his face in my hair.
"I missed you too," he murmured.
Suddenly I found myself in mid yawn so I quickly put my hand over my mouth to cover it. I didn't want our time together to end. I wanted to stay with him but he was already giving me that look. "I'm fine," I said quickly and he shook his head with a grin.
"No," he stated. "You're tired. You should head to bed."
"I'm really not tired, promise!" I said with a quick nod as I waited for him to speak again.
He paused for a moment as if he was remembering something before spoke again. "Not gonna work this time," he said and my face fell. "Come on, get to bed. Maybe we can talk tomorrow." Maybe. Maybe. I didn't like the maybe. I wanted us to talk again. I sighed, giving in before nodding and standing up. I looked down at him and smiled before lightly tracing the shape of a heart on his hand with my finger. I doubted he'd notice what the shape was as I turned and left the room, my own heart aching.
I was glad that I got back to my room to find it empty and void of anyone else's belongings. It appears my former roommate did find me to be a pervert. Great. Well at least I had my room all to myself. I sighed before deciding to have a shower before slipping off to bed. Hopefully the bathrooms were clean and void of creeps. I grabbed the towel I stuck in my bag and a change of clothes along with those little shampoos and soaps that came in the hotels before setting forth.
I found the same bathroom I had found a woman close to death in and had to take a breather before I could go in. Unluckily as I pushed open the door a girl was coming out. She jumped back in surprise and I frowned. "Sorry," I blurted out quickly. "I didn't get you did I?"
"Just missed," she said with a large smile.
I laughed lightly. "You'd be one of the lucky ones."
"Oh?" she questioned.
"Usually I injure someone with my un-coordination," I grimaced. "I must've been taking a whiz when they handed out the coordination tickets." It was the truth! Everyone was so much more balanced and graceful than I was. Even the girl in front of me was petite and like a dancer with every step she took.
She laughed the sound of bells chiming in the air. "You're quick," she giggled. "I like that."
I smiled carefully back as a pause came between us. In that time I studied her closely. She was very small, like a pixie of sorts with spiky, ink black hair which looked perfect in every way. Her face was small as was her features, all but her eyes, which were large and hazel coloured. She had an innocent but perky look about her. Especially when she smiled. She looked like an excited puppy of coffee. I could only picture what she would be like if she actually drank coffee. Buzz!
"Alice," she introduced herself and held out her hand.
I fumbled with my belongings for a moment before taking her tiny hand in mine. "Bella."
She let go and again questioned me. "You from around here? Volunteer or stranded citizen, I mean."
"Stranded citizen." I answered. "I'm from Jacksonville and Washington at the same time. You?" Well that sounded lame.
"Also stranded." she said. "I live a couple of hours up north – but I can't say I exist in two places at once. That's quite a skill." She laughed and I felt my cheeks warm slightly although hopefully not enough to make my blush apparent.
"One of the outcomes of a divorce, I'm afraid." I answered with a shrug. I had gotten over Charlie and Renee's divorce so it wasn't such a big thing to me now. As long as they were both okay then I would understand their decision. Or Renee's decision. I still didn't know if Charlie loved Renee now or not. When I was a child I didn't understand why they would leave each other but now I did comprehend. People fell out of love…
"Well. I'm keeping you from your shower." she said after a moment with a smile. "Use the middle one on the right – it's the cleanest."
"Thanks," I nodded and let her pass me. "See you 'round?"
"Sure," she answered before leaving and closing the door after her. I smiled to myself. I liked the girl. She seemed someone who could pick you up and keep you smiling. I'd be glad to talk to her again.
I followed her instructions and found she was right. It was the cleanest of the bunch and that was saying something. So after checking that I had locked the door about five hundred times I finally started the shower. I was surprised to find the water was actually warm and wasn't brown. Amazing, I thought with a chuckle. I washed myself quickly, my skin turning red as I again cleaned my hands trying to make sure I didn't have any of the girls blood on me still. I trembled at the thought but the warm water soon cleared my senses and relaxed my muscles.
And thats when everything went black. Fan-freaking-tastic.
Le gasp! The cliff hanger! Oh the horror! I thought it was cute and yay, I see Alice/Bella friendship blooming! And of course, Edward has found Bella. Poor guy with his black eye. Aww! But hey, Bella has to tend to him. Goody, right?
I eat your reviews for breakfast so don't let me go hungry!
