Sorry I haven't updated in forever, I had to recharge my ideas!
Chapter four: I won't say it
There was no way! I wouldn't let myself believe it. Hell would freeze over before I put myself through all that trouble again. Edward Cullen was no exception!
I let that thought play through my mind over and over until it became a sort of mantra. It's all the kept me from reaching across the limo and practically flinging my arms around him.
"I liked your last CD," I said a bit awkwardly.
"Oh? What'd you like about it?" He smiled at me and I tried to return a polite one, though I'm sure it was probably a grimace. "Um, well it was really expressive. Just something you could relate to and listen to after a day of school."
"I'm glad." Silence stretched from the two of us. A half awkward-half comforting silence.
"So why'd you decide to move here?"
"Well, I lived here for a few years when I was younger and my family thought it was time for a change of scenery." He sounded perfectly honest and sincere but something in the way he said it almost suggested that it was a barely glossed over lie.
No! I wouldn't do this! I was not trying to decipherer his motives. If he wanted to lie it was his problem. But I, Isabella Swan, will not be lied to again. But then again, who's to say he's even lying at all?
Edward Cullen. I've barely known him for five minuets and already the guy infuriates me! He just seems perfect in every single way and he knows it. He can have any girl's heart in the time it takes someone to blink and crush it a second. I definitely didn't trust him, and I wouldn't be another victim!
Especially not Edward Cullen's! It'd be all over the papers or something, and my humiliation would be made world wide!
EDWARD CULLEN SCOOPS UP LOCAL GIRL!
EDWARD CULLEN DUMPS TOWN GIRL!
I didn't even want to think about it.
So don't, I told myself furiously. The more you think the more clouded he makes my thoughts. Maybe these mind games were all part of his plan. I don't know, I don't care but I won't stick around to find out!
Something about her silence made me think she was mad. But what about? Did something happen between now and the time since I'd last seen her in class? I don't think so. What could it be then? Was it possible she was mad at me?
Don't be so egotistical, I told myself she was probably mad about something else.
The world didn't revolve around me.
Bella looked out the window at the passing Forks scenery, a sigh escaping her lips.
"You haven't met Alice yet have you?"
"Oh, no. I didn't actually know you had a sister."
"That's funny; she was running around school this morning. Trying to make as many new friends as possible I think…"
Bella laughed suddenly, the sound like wind chimes in a gentle breeze. I found myself watching her closely.
"You think I'm joking?"
"No, not really. It's just; I do believe I saw someone like that this morning. Though I didn't know she was your sister."
"She's my adopted sister really."
"I wish I had a sister."
Well something told me that Bella would get her wish soon. I'm sure Alice already knew about Bella and was planning on being very much like a sister to her. Well only Alice knows…
Only Alice knows…
I laughed. "Damn right!" A few people turned to look at me as I past. Did I say that out loud?
Well Edward was right. I did know what was going to happen, and much more!
Edward leaned in close, his face inches away from Bella's. She flinched away instinctively but froze a moment afterward.
"Edward I don't know…"
"Bella can't you trust me?" There was silence for a moment as Bella thought, and then she closed the space between them and kissed him for barely a moment before she spoke again.
"I trust you, Edward."
I still need new ideas but I thought I'd give a quick update before I did anything else. Enjoy!
