For this chapter, everyone needs to pay close attention.
As you all know, Edward is a vampire, but he's not like the vampires in Twilight.
A matter of fact, none of the other vampires are the same either.
The chapter will explain better.
And Bella is 30 and Edward is 3000. years old. :)
I love you, Edward. I thought, pulling the covers over my body and snuggling into the nice, comfortable bed.
I love you too, Bella. Now rest and I will come for you soon, love. I heard Edward say and then a warm, loving feeling washed throughout my body.
Yawning, I fell asleep, dreaming of Edward.
I felt somebody shaking my shoulder gently. Groggily, I woke up, squinting my eyes. I was so tired.
I sat up and rubbed my eyes with the palm of my hands. My arms and legs felt heavy. My head was pounding. I wanted to go back to sleep. But, unconsciously, my mind called out to Edward automatically.
Edward? Are you there?
My body ached for his touch, to feel his fingers on my skin, touching me everywhere. I needed to feel him with me.
Yes, love. I'm right here. Open your eyes.
A hand brushed against my cheek and I opened my eyes. There was Edward. In all his glory and haughtiness, looking over me with possessiveness. The bed dipped down beside me and I felt him wrap his arm around my waist.
He dragged me close to him and I laid my head down on his shoulder. I felt so protected with him here. He made me feel so good and I wanted to be closer to him. I pushed his hands off my body and he looked at me, confused.
I crawled into his lap, wrapping my arms about his neck, straddled his lap, and pushed my face into the crook of his shoulder. He was so soft and I never wanted to let go of him.
I could have stayed here forever.
"Are you okay, Bella?" Edward asked, his mouth at my neck, his lips laying gentle kisses on my skin.
"Yes, I'm fine. Just tired."
"Why did you have to leave yesterday?"
He cleared his throat and removed his face from my neck.
"My brother. There was some trouble at the...house, and he needed my assistance. I tried to ignore him, but he was very insistent."
"Oh, what's his name?"
"Jasper. I have another brother and a sister as well. I think you two will become great friends."
"What are their names?"
"Emmett and Alice. Emmett is the oldest and Alice is the youngest. I was born right after Emmett and my father adopted Jasper. And then came Alice. She's a little...eccentric sometimes, but she's nice."
"Yes, I love them very much. Jasper and Alice are getting married soon. In one month to be exact."
I nodded and ran my fingers through his messy locks, savoring the feel of him. I didn't know how it happened or what it meant, but I loved him. There was this attraction, a need to have him with me at all times.
I couldn't explain it, because it didn't make sense to me. I felt like he could see through my very soul, my very being. He was deep inside my mind and body. We were one with each other.
"I love you, Edward. So very much." I muttered, my voice muffling through his shirt.
His palm slid flat against my hair, rubbing the tendrils that flowed down my back.
"I love you too, my Bella."
I leaned up and kissed him, trying to wrap myself all the way around him, trying to connect our bodies even more. He obliged me and opened his mouth to me.
His hands found their way to the curve of my ass and he gripped me in his hands. I moaned and he took his mouth from mine and kissed down the edge of my mouth, to my neck and then my collarbone, scraping his teeth gently over the skin.
He went back to my neck and started sucking furiously, and I'm sure he would make a mark on me.
A minute later, he pulled back and looked at my neck, checking out his handywork.
"There's a mark isn't there?" I inquired, already knowing the answer.
He nodded and grinned, still staring at my neck. His hand found my hands locked around his neck and he grabbed my left arm and pressed his thumb to my wrist. His eyes closed and he sighed and brought it to my chest, over my heart.
"What are you doing?"
He opened his eyes back up and looked in my eyes. "Feeling your pulse. It...relaxes me. It makes me feel at peace."
I smiled gently at him and kissed him on the cheek.
"So where exactly are you taking me?"
"To my home. I am needed there and I cannot wait any longer here with you, so you must come with me."
"Okay. Where exactly is your home at?"
He raked his fingers through his hair again, a habit I was becoming to realize he did whenever he was nervous or aggravated.
"It's far away. Isn't it?" I asked, knowing something was wrong.
"Yeah, it's not exactly close."
"How far are we talking about Another state? Another town? What?"
"WHAT?!" I exclaimed. That was too far. I could deal with another town or state, but another country? That was going a little too far.
"Edward, I don't know how I feel about that."
"I know, Bella, but you have to trust me. You do trust me don't you?"
Duh. "Of course I do, but another country? I can't just pack up and leave school and my life behind. This is a big step, Edward."
"Please, just try, Bella. For me. You can always come back and visit. Besides, you aren't really leaving your dad behind or anything. He doesn't even live here."
I sighed and climbed off his lap. I didn't know what to do. On one hand, I wanted to go with Edward, but on the other, I wanted to stay. I didn't like change. I was comfortable with the way things were now.
My back was toward him and I just stood there, contemplating my options. Maybe I could go. Edward did say that I could come back and visit and would that be so bad? I mean, I loved Edward, so I was supposed to go with him.
But, if I went, I'd be leaving school and my friends. And what if it didn't work out between me and Edward? What if we broke up? I would come back empty-handed and homeless. But that didn't seem like a likely possibility.
I turned around and faced him. "Alright, Edward. What country?"
His head was hung down and he looked up at my voice, his face sad. "Italy."
Hmm, Italy. The boot-shaped country. I could get used to that.
"I'll go, but on two conditions."
Edward's face immediately lifted and I smiled at him. "I still get to attend school and I want to come back here and visit when I want."
"Done." He said quickly.
"So, when do we leave?"
"Now? But I haven't packed or anything and I need to go to the college and--"
Edward out one long finger to my lips and shushed me. "I have everything already taken care of. All you have to do is come with me."
"Oh, so you assumed that I would say yes?"
He smiled sheepishly and I couldn't help but smile back. He was so damn cute.
"I hoped you would."
"Well, what are we waiting for?"
He grinned wider and so fast that I didn't even see it, I was in his arms, my body against his body.
"What are you doing?" I asked, baffled. We weren't going to take a plane or something?
He chuckled and kissed me again. "No silly, Bella. We are going to travel my way. I'm going to show you where I go when I 'vanish'."
He wrapped his arms around me and I looked up at him.
Then, the world spinned and bright colors flashed before my eyes. The spinning was fast and it knocked the breath out of me. My head started pounding and the next thing I knew, I had passed out.
There we go!
So, now you know that they can teleport or whatever you want to call it.
Next chapter is Bella arriving at the home and meeting everybody.
Reviews will get you a trip with Rob to Italy... Not really, but isn't it a great thought? ;)
