A/n: WOOT chapter 10. *Sigh* I remember when I first started this thing. Hehe.
Thanks for all your love and once again thanks Letravisty.
This is Bella's point of view.
It's been a few weeks since I've spent time with Edward in the meadow. He calls it "our meadow" and we've spent multiple afternoons there. Sometimes we'd sit around and talk and other times we'd read but I'd always get off track and find my fingers in his hair and not on the Braille.
"What do you think about meeting my family?" I was slightly frightened when Edward walked up on me but I relaxed at the sound of his voice.
"Edward, I've met your family before." I replied, slightly confused about what he was trying to say, while walking towards the bio room.
"I mean Carlisle and Esme," I stopped in mid step and my face flushed. "It won't be that bad. They'll love you." I couldn't help but smile at how sure of himself he was. I got a goofy grin on my face when I felt his lips press against my cheek. I leaned forward quickly to catch his lips again. Our lips moved in sync and I couldn't help but moan in his mouth. Multiple times I tried to push the sexual part of our relationship a bit further than what it is now; making out and the occasional groping. Just a kiss from Edward made my head spin and my hormones were on a rampage. But every time I tried Edward stopped us and said that we couldn't go to far because he may hurt me. Although Edward is right it would be a nice if he'd let go a little.
"Bella…" He said in a warning tone. I knew he enjoyed it as much as I did. Maybe a bit more. He couldn't lie because I did feel something against my leg a few days ago and I know it wasn't the remote. "We have class." He grabbed my hand and we walked to into our bio class.
"It wasn't the best idea to make out in the hallway was it?" I asked quietly while settling in the stool.
"Not many people were in the hallway but, Mike was extremely jealous." I rolled my eyes. To be blunt, Edward hates Mike. So every time Mike is around, Edward gets a bit more touchy. I didn't mind it but the whole thing is childish. Edward should know that I want to be his, forever.
I constantly think about Edward and I being together and I love the idea of it. Yeah, I'll have to leave everyone behind and watch them all grow old and die but just the thought of having Edward forever is just…amazing. I feel slightly selfish that I would have to just abandon the people I love just to be with Edward but maybe I won't have to do that. Maybe I can leave them all on a good note. Thoughts of faking a death floated around my head but I knew that would hurt Charlie way too much. It would hit my mom twenty times harder.
"It frustrates me when I don't know what you're thinking." Edward whispered in my ear as the teacher droned on.
"Oh, it's nothing." I shrugged it off.
"Are you sure?"
I nodded my head and smiled so he wouldn't worry so much. That's another thing I love about Edward. He's such a worry wart but for some reason that just draws me into him. It makes me feel a bit more safe.
"Dad I'm going to have dinner at the Cullen's tonight."
"Okay Bells, but be safe. I don't want you getting hurt." Hmm, it's funny how he says that and I am on my way to a house filled with vampires.
"Alright Dad, see you tonight. Bye." After he said goodbye I hung up my phone and leaned against the leather seats.
"Are you ready?" Edward asked and I felt the car make a right turn. I knew we were at the house.
"As ready as I'll ever be." Which is barely ready.
"It won't be that bad." The car pulled to a stop and the purr of the car stopped. " The only person you have to worry about is Rosalie. She can be a bitch." He said the last part pretty loud.
"It's the truth." He said.
"I'm guessing she heard that." I laughed.
"Yep, come on." I heard him on the right of me this time and I knew he opened the door. The cool breeze hit my face.
"Eeeep!" The ear piercing noise made me flinch and I had a feeling it was Alice.
"Oh Bella, I knew you would come." Yep, I was right.
"Hmm wonder why." Edward said sarcastically while latching on to my hand. It's become a habit for us to hold hands all of the time. Almost as if we needed that.
"Come on inside, Esme and I cooked you some food." Right before I could tell her I wasn't hungry my stomach decided to announce its presence. "I knew that would happen." Alice giggled.
Edward led me through the front door and took my jacket. Since I was in a new environment it was a bit harder to walk around. I used my cane a lot more than usual but I did have Edward to help me. We must have walked into the kitchen because of the incredible smell…Italian.
"You must be Bella, hi." I heard a warm welcoming voice and I couldn't help but smile. "I'm Esme." I expected her to hold out her hand and wait for me to shake it but then I felt her cold arms wrap around my body. For some reason the coldness felt warm and loving. She stood at arms length but still held on to my shoulders. "It's finally nice to meet the girl that Edward's been obsessing over."
I could feel Edward shuffle from foot to foot. Probably embarrassed that she said that to me. "Nice to meet you too."
"We cooked you some food, hope you like Italian."
"Yes, I do thank you." I replied. Edward led me to a table and I found a chair to sit down.
"Carlisle should be here any minute now." I heard a plate being set in front of me and the smell of the lasagna filled my nostrils. I found a fork and a knife next to my plate and decided to test if it was a good as it smelled….yes it's amazing.
"Wow this is really good." I said to no one in particular hoping the chef would know I was speaking to them.
"Thank you dear." I could hear the smile in Esme's voice. Alice immediately sat next to me and began to chatter about all the things she had planned. I politely nodded my head but I couldn't say anything. The mixture of the smell of the amazing food and Edward sitting about an inch away was a bit overwhelming.
"HEY BELLA!" Emmett's loud voice entered the room followed by the quiet hello from Jasper. I said hi to the boys and we all began to laugh and talk around the table. I occasionally heard Rosalie but she didn't say much. She must not like a human in the house.
Once I was done, Edward said we could go to his room. I agreed and he took the plate to clean it. After that he tangled my fingers in his and led me upstairs.
"DON'T DO ANYTHING I WOULDN'T DO!" Emmett yelled from downstairs. There were a few giggles but I just rolled my eyes. Apparently Edward thought he was crazy too since he mumbled back:
"Emmett, you would do anything and everything."
"DAMN RIGHT EDDIE-KINS." We made it to his room and Edward closed the door. I probed around with my cane; trying to remember every detail of it. Then I felt it was missing something.
"Where's the bed?"
"No bed, I don't need one but Alice thinks otherwise." He sighed and I heard his voice travel across the room. "But there is a seat right here next to me." I followed the sound of his voice and my knees hit something leather.
"What's with you and leather?" I asked jokingly.
"It makes everything seem a bit sexier." I could feel his icy breath along my ear and it made me shiver.
"Really?" I asked suggestively. I turned towards him and pressed my lips to his. He mumbled a 'mmhmm' and kissed me back fiercely. I felt his cool tongue in my mouth and I immediately tangled my fingers in his soft thick hair.
He leaned back into the sofa and I heard books falling on the floor and the metal of my cane hitting the hard wood floor. A second later I found myself straddling Edward's hard body. We moaned in each others mouths' when his hips crashed in to mine accidentally. Then he pulled away. Of course.
"We need to stop." He said rising up. I was still straddling his waist.
"Well-" Before he could answer the door flew open.
"Well hello Bella." It was Dr. Cullen. He seemed to sound uneasy. As if I wasn't suppose to be there. That stung a bit but I still said hello.
"Edward, we have a slight problem." After that there was nothing but silence. They were probably talking to each other through Edward's mind reading. There's something they don't want me to know.
"Can I just stay with, Bella?" That was all I heard from Edward and then there was more silence. Thanks for keeping me out of the loop.
"Come on Bella, we have to take you home." I was slightly disappointed that I couldn't stay longer but there must be something wrong. Edward slipped the bracelet part of my cane around my wrist. I didn't ask any questions. I do that later.
We were downstairs and heading towards the front door when Alice stopped us.
"It'll be sunny tomorrow." I was slightly confused at why she would give us the weather report. "We won't be at school tomorrow Bella. Maybe the next day."
Edward sighed and probably nodded. We walked outside at a slightly fast pace and he opened the door for me. A second later the driver door opened and Edward put the key in the ignition. He seemed stressed about something. As if that isn't obvious. A blind person could see that.
"Okay do vampires burn in the sun or something?" I asked trying to ease the tension. He seemed to catch on and actually laughed a bit.
"No, for lack of better terms we 'glitter'. Emmett likes to call it his all over 'bling' because it makes us shiny I guess."
"You'd probably get a few glances from our peers." I replied nodding. He laughed again.
"So I won't be there. But Bella please be safe." I felt his hand touch my cheek but before I thought about leaning into his touch I remembered who was driving.
"Edward Anthony Masen Cullen, both hands on the wheel!" I practically yelled. He laughed a bit but his hand returned to the wheel. I missed his touch.
A few days later…
It was Friday. The day Edward was suppose to be back at school. It is now the end of Spanish and I haven't spoken to him yet. Yeah, I'm a bit confused. I made my way to the cafeteria with Angela and she just finished telling me a story about she and Ben getting caught in the janitors closet yesterday. I called her a clichéd high schooler.
"Have you seen Edward today?" I asked nervously. I didn't want to sound desperate but seriously! We are in a relationship and he said he would see me today. School is halfway over and I haven't seen him yet.
"I did see him in the parking lot this morning but other than that, no. I went up to ask him where you were and he said Charlie drove you to school." she replied. "Is something wrong with you two?"
She opened the cafeteria door and I walked inside.
"The last conversation I had with him was on Wednesday about leather right before we made out in his room." I said.
"Thanks for that extra tidbit Bells." She said sarcastically and then found us a table with Ben.
Lunch was almost over when I felt a tap on my shoulder. It would be a waste of time to look around so I just politely said yes.
"Bella, can we talk for a minute." It was Edward. I could tell; his velvety voice.
I nodded and he took my hand. I hadn't had that feeling for a while and I loved it. The sparks that flowed through our hands when we touched. But he did say 'can we talk'. Those were the three worst words in the English language. Of course if they are in the same sentence. Someone always ended up getting hurt in the end. We sat down at an empty table in the corner of the cafeteria.
"So what's up?" I asked hoping my light mood would make things better but in the inside, I thought I would pass out.
"When Carlisle walked in on us that day he told me a few things. Apparently his old friend Aro, from the Volturi, is staying over for the weekend." I remembered who the Volturi were and Edward mentioned Aro once or twice.
"I remember him." I said.
"Yes, and you probably remember that human and vampire relationships aren't really allowed right." My heart sunk into my stomach.
"So you have to break up with me?" I could feel the tears pool in my eyes.
"No, god no Bella." he said almost forcefully. He held my hands and continued. "I just can't be with you for the rest of the day. Now and bio is the only time I have and Aro doesn't leave until Sunday. Yesterday we had to relieve your scent from the kitchen and my room. Aro would be suspicious."
"I wish my blood didn't taste so damn good." I shook my head. Edward laughed and pulled me closer.
"Sometimes I do too. But after bio I have to leave and cleanse myself of your scent. It's going to suck when I have to do the same thing to my car. I love the smell of Bella when I drive around." I smiled and leaned my head on my shoulder.
"So when is Aro coming?" I asked.
"Tonight, but after he leaves I'm going straight to your room. I might die from the lack of strawberries. You'll have to get in my car too so I can have that scent." He said, I heard the smile in his voice.
"Then we can drive to the meadow and spend all of Sunday evening there." I sighed and the bell rang.
"I wish I didn't have to be a good host and just stay at your place." I agreed but we soon had to leave.
"Maybe if you stay with Angela I'll feel a bit better." He was about to leave but he stood at my locker.
"That can be arranged." He kissed my forehead and then pressed his against mine. "I'm going to miss you."
"I'll probably miss you more." I shook my head but before I could protest his lips pressed against mine.
"Call me." He said before I heard his footsteps go down the hallway. They stopped and my head shot up. "I love you."
"I love you too, Edward."
A/n: AWWW bitter sweet ending. Well stay tuned for next chapter!
I use the word apparently too much in my writing. But when I talk I say seriously all the time. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Lol.
Beautiful people review….just kidding you can be beautiful without reviewing. But I'd appreciate it :p
