Sorry for the wait on an update for this. I've been working on new Bella and Edward story. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. It's called: One Night Stands. Enjoy=]
I'm not sure how long I've been here. Where ever here is. But the burning sensation in my body was finally settling down. The only problem now is, my throat feels like it's on fire. I waited a few seconds before opening my eyes. Everything around me is so clear. It's like my vision was improved 100 times.
"Bella?" It was Alice's voice. She was hovering above me. I stared at her, wondering where I am. Her hand reached out and touched my arm. "Bella, it's okay." I watched her eyes wonder to somewhere behind me.
Slowly I sat up. Alice's hands curled around my arms to help me up. "What's going on?" I had to choke my questions out, due to the burning in my throat.
"How are you feeling?" Alice asked, without answering my question.
I looked around the room. I was in some sort of room that reminded me of the hospital. But I could tell that this wasn't the hospital. I reached up and cupped my hand around my throat. It hurt like crazy. "It's my throat." I whispered.
"You're thirsty." Alice announced. She then looked back behind me again. "Carlisle?" She called his name out.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen came up from behind. "Right here, Alice." He was carrying a plastic cup. It was tall and hand a lid over top. Carlisle gently placed a straw in the cup. He held out the cup for me to take, nodding that it was okay. "Here Bella. I need you to drink this. It will make your throat feel better."
I looked at Alice, before taking it. I went to take the lid of just to see what it was, but Alice's hand stopped me. "Don't Bella. Trust me." I looked up at her and then back down at the cup. "Don't worry. We would never do anything to hurt you. Carlisle is right. Your throat will stop hurting if you just drink it."
"Okay." I whispered, before taking a big slurp. I gulped the entire cup down within a minute. I smiled a little embarrassed. I placed the empty cup in Alice's waiting hand. I touched my throat. "It does feel better." I pointed out.
Alice smiled. "Told you." She beamed.
"What's going on?" I asked. "Oh no. Did I fall again?"
Alice laughed. "No silly. You didn't fall." She answered. "Don't worry. We'll explain everything later."
We? What is going on? Alice took my hand and helped me get off the bed. "Come on. I'll take you outside so you can get some fresh air. You've been in that bed for the past couple of days."
Alice led me downstairs to the kitchen. Esme was standing at the doorway giving me a warm smile. "Hi Bella." She pulled me into a tight embrace. I hugged her back, thinking it was the right thing to do.
"Come on Bella! I'll take you down to the lake." Alice said, cheerfully.
Esme's warm features turned worried. "Um Alice. Edward's down there. I don't know if that's such a good idea."
Edward? "Can I see him?" I asked, no one in particular.
"Of course you can, Bella." Alice pulled on my arm, giving Esme a hard look. She opened the back door and gracefully danced out. "Edward's been at your bedside everyday you've been asleep."
"He has?" I followed her out.
Alice smiled. "Yes. He never left your side. That is, until you started to wake up this morning. Then he left."
I'm so confused. Why didn't Edward want to be around me when I started to wake up? Alice took my hand again. "Hurry Bella!" She started running and I was forced to run with her. To my surprise, we were running faster than I ever thought I could possibly run. Even weirder, I wasn't falling. Usually, I would be on the ground by now.
"We're here." Alice let go of my hand and walked up ahead of me. Everything looks so different. My eye sight is unbelievable. Not only is everything clearer, but I can also see much farther than before.
Over on a rock, I could see a figure. As I stepped closer, I could tell that it was Edward. I took in a deep breath before walking over to the rock. Edward didn't move an inch. He just stood there, frozen into place. Like a statue. "Edward?"
His head turned around slightly. I noticed that his eyes were no longer red. They were golden. I gasped at how beautiful they were. Edward jumped down off of the rock and started walking away. "Edward, wait."
I followed him down farther to the lake. He walked along the bank and I found myself stopping. "Where are you going?" I called after him.
Edward stopped abruptly. I wasn't prepared and crashed right into him. When we hit, the sound was like two boulders colliding. I stepped back away from Edward. He turned around to face me. His expression was angry. "Bella…
Cliff hanger! And sorry it's not as long! But please review! =]
