OME GUYS! I am SOOOO sorry for the long time it took me to update but I seriously have been busy. Any way to make up for it here is a longer chapter than I have been posting!
Disclaimer: Great news guys! I own Twilight! Only on opposite day.... ;P
If it wasn't for the fact that that kitchen was almost completely quiet, I might not have heard the almost silentplop of water hitting the granite floor. I immediately whirled around, my only thoughts only on making sure the girl was safe. She was sitting on the bottom stair with her knees pulled to her chest. Her small frame was shaking violently and tears were streaming down her face like little rivers. I quickly made my over to her and knelt down trying to think of something to get her to stop crying. I put my hand on her shoulder in an attempt to calm her before she hurt herself. All that violent shaking couldn't be good for her frail body. "Shh, calm down. It's okay." I rubbed soothing circles into her back until she finally calmed down. I scooped her up in my arms and carried her to the kitchen table. When she walked in the food was almost done so I walked back over to the counter and got down two plates and piled them with food. I slid one to her and took a seat across the table from her. She looked at it longingly before looking back up at me. "Go on," I urged. "Eat up."
"I can't accept this," she whispered before sliding the plate back towards me.
"Why not?" I was seriously confused. Here I was offering this girl food when she clearly hadn't eaten in who knows how long and she says she can't accept it. She Shrugged.
"Food's hard to come by. I don't want to be the one that eats yours. Don't worry, I'll be fine." She paused. "Oh and I am sorry for intruding in your home. I didn't realize that any one else was here." She looked into my eyes before speaking again. "I'll leave as soon as the sun sets. That way I won't have to walk in the heat, but if you want me to, I can leave now." She starred at me, waiting expectantly for my answer, but I was too shocked to give it. I just found out I wasn't alone and now she wanted to leave me?
"What's your name?" I managed to ask in a strangled whisper. I needed to know this angel's name.
"Bella." Came her soft reply. She waited a few more minutes to see if I would say anything else. "Well...I'm going to go now." She started heading for the door and before I even realized what I was doing I stood up, knocking my chair over in the process, and grabbed her tiny wrist and spun her around to face me.
"Please don't leave me," I begged. This was the first time in my life I had begged for something. This was also the only time I wanted something bad enough to beg for it. She stared at me, then any where but at me. After what seemed like an eternity she finally looked back into my eyes, with her eyes gleaming with emotions I wasn't sure of, and whispered in that bell like voice of hers a meek and simple "okay". My body wasn't in my control; I was only what seemed like a bystander as my body used my hand to pull her closer and my head bended down to kiss her. You want to know what the surprising thing was? Even though I had only just met her, just learned her name, and we had just learned we were not alone, she didn't push me away and run. Instead she pulled me tighter to her and kissed me back.
I wasn't one to cry in front of a complete stranger in their house, heck I wasn't one to really cry at all, but something about seeing someone after all these years alone, and knowing that I wasn't alone anymore really got to me. I could hear him walking across the floor in quick steps to get to me, to see if any thing was wrong. I glanced up at him hoping that he wasn't mad at me for being in his house, but the only thing I could see in his eyes were honest concern for me. My chest ached from the sobs that were trying to break free from my chest, sobs that at all cost I would keep to myself. He knelt down beside me and I could vaguely hear him whisper to me that it was all right. I tried to make the sobs go away, to make the tears stop, but it wasn't until I felt his hand on my back rubbing soothing circles into my skin that I began to calm down. After the shaking and the crying stopped, he picked me up and carried me to the table. I watched him as he moved around, getting to plates and piling them with food. He came back to the table and sat down across from as he slid a plate down to me. As much as I wanted to eat the delicious smelling and more than likely tasting food, I couldn't. I knew how hard food was to come by. I glanced back up at him and he gave me an encouraging smile. "Go on. Eat up." This was his food that he had found goodness knows how and I had in no fashion shape or from helped him or done him any kind of favor to deserve this food, so I wasn't going to eat it. I would have to just find my own somewhere else. He was watching me, expecting me to eat.
"I can't accept this," I whispered hoping it was loud enough for him to hear me. He paused only a moment before asking me why not.
"Food's hard to come by and I don't want to be the one who eats yours. Don't worry I'll be fine." The last part was directed more to assure me than him. Then I remembered something else that made me blush. "Oh and I am sorry for intruding in your home. I didn't realize that any one else was here." I had looked down at the table, but then I looked back into his eyes. "I'll leave as soon as the sun sets. That way I won't have to walk in the heat, but if you want me to, I can leave now." I hoped more than anything that he wouldn't make me leave at all, but it wasn't right of me to impose on him. It was more than the fact that I didn't want to be alone again for the reason that I didn't want to leave. It was something else a totally different feeling. Even though I knew I shouldn't and the fact that it was completely not like me to feel this way about someone I just met, but I was positive I liked him. It wasn't quite love, but it was something really close. It was like one of those love stories where it was love at first sight.
Even though my body, not to mention my heart, didn't want to move from the seat I got up. I took it that by his silence he wanted me to go now but didn't know how to say it without being rude. I stood up and looked at him one last time. Like that Taylor Swift song I used to listen to, I would save his picture for a rainy day.
"What's your name?" He asked in a strangled whisper. My guess was he was trying to remain calm and not be mad at me.
"Bella," I whispered. I waited on him to see if he would say anything else, but after a few minutes of silence I figured he was waiting on me to leave. I headed for the door but before I got there his hand was on my wrist, twisting me around to face him. I guess he wanted to yell at me after all. The words that came out of his mouth surprised me.
"Please don't leave me," he begged. I was shocked that he wanted me to stay, that he was begging me, me of all people, okay so I was really the only 'people' that he could beg, to stay when I should be begging him. I looked into his eyes searching for any thing that would say that he didn't mean it, but when I didn't find anything that would suggest he didn't want me here I looked any where but at him. I didn't know what to say. So I looked back into his beautiful green eyes and muttered out a simple 'okay' and hoped it would be enough. When his arm wrapped around me to bring me closer and his lips met mine, I knew that that simple okay was enough…it was more than enough. Even though my mind screamed at me that it was wrong of me to be kissing someone I just met, my heart was telling me the exact opposite. So for once in my life I listened to my heart and kissed him back.
Okay so that is at least twice as long as my other chapters! I hope this chapter is okay I did the best I could. Oh and so I kinda lied about explaining in this chapter how the food is still good, but next chapter for sure. Speaking of next chapter I have a poll up on my page thingy for you guys to decide what day you want me to update on. I always do better when I have a specific due date…
