Ok enough of my talking here's Chapter 6.
Chapter 6:The Best Night of My Life
KNOCK…KNOCK…KNOCK on the door I went. I have to admit that I am very nervous. I was shocked when Bella asked me out before I got the chance to ask her out. Then again I gave her my number and didn't get hers in return so I couldn't have asked her out. She opened the door and I was speechless. Bella is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. She was looking great in that dress she was wearing.
Bella brought me out of my thoughts by saying, "Are you alright Edward?"
I can just imagine what I must have looked like, a drooling fool.
I said, "Yeah I am fine. I was just so taken back by your beauty."
She blushed a crimson red and said, "You don't looks so bad yourself."
I laughed and said "Thank you. Well I am ready to leave if you are."
She said, "Yes I am. Let's go!"
With that she grabbed her jacket and we left her apartment and I led her to my car. I went to the passenger side of the car and held the door open for her.
She mumbled something saying, "Always the gentleman" as she got into the car. I laughed as I closed the door and walked to the driver side.
I said as I pulled out of the parking lot, "I told you that being around me was something you would have to get used to. I am always the gentleman."
She laughed at me and shook her head back and forth.
At first we were sitting in a comfortable silence before I spoke. I asked her various questions about her childhood. I found out that her favorite color was emerald green. When she said that her face turned completely red and I asked, "Why do you seem embarrassed? Did I say something wrong?"
She said, "No I did. See I am blushing because the color of your eyes is emerald green and that's what I said my favorite color is so there you have it."
I think it's my turn to blush.
I said, "Well there nothing wrong with that. To let you in on a little secret, I am very fond of the color brown. What do you know? That's the color of your eyes."
We both looked at each other and started laughing really hard. At that point I realized we were driving and didn't have a destination in mind.
"So did you have any idea where you wanted to get something to eat from", I asked.
She said, "I forgot about that. Do you know any good places?"
I thought about it for a second and said, "As a matter of fact, I know the perfect place." As we continued to drive, Bella told me that both her parents are in her lives even though they are divorced. Her mother lives in Florida and her father lives in Forks, Washington. "Wow, I didn't know you were Chief Swan's daughter. I can't believe we never came across each other."
She said, "Well I think I came across your father often since my clumsiness landed me in the hospital a lot."
I said, "Well seeing you work that stage, it's hard to believe that you are clumsy."
I noticed her facial expression looked sad all of a sudden and she turned towards the window. Man, what stupid thing did I say to upset her? This was make it or break it time.
I said, "Bella, did I say something to upset you? If so then I apologize because I didn't mean to."
She said, "No its not you. I am not proud of what I do. It's just something that I have to do, but I really don't want to talk about it. Its not your fault."
I said, "Sure. I understand."
For a while we sat in a comfortable silence and then Bella started to ask me questions about my siblings. She like the fact that I had a brother and a sister and she didn't have any siblings at all. We finally made it to our first destination which was a restaurant called Beef and Brandy. We got out of the car and the valet went to park the car and I led Bella into the restaurant.
As we walked inside, Bella said, "I never been to this restaurant before."
I said, "The food here is amazing."
She gave me a questioning look and I said, "I come here a lot with my parents when they come into town for a visit."
The waitress led us to a booth on the side with dim lighting. It was kind of romantic. She handed us the menus and asked us if we had a drink in mind.
Bella said, "Can I have a Pepsi with a little ice?"
I told her I would have the same thing. I was looking at the menu when I heard a shriek from across the table and immediately looked at Bella.
I said, "What happen? What is wrong?"
She said, "Did you see the prices on the menu? This is too much!"
I laughed at her reaction and said, "Its alright Bella. Order anything you want. I got this!"
When the waitress finally returned I decided on Blacken Chicken pasta and Bella ordered Mushroom Ravioli.
I asked, "How is your food?"
She said, "Its very delicious."
I laughed and said, "My food is great as well. So do you have any idea what movie you would like to see?"
She said, "Actually I do. There is this movie called The Collector that I have been dying to see.
I said to her, "You do know that is a horror film, right?"
She rolled her eyes at me and said, "Yeah I love horror movies. They are my all time favorite."
I could not help thinking to myself what amazing girl Bella really is. She likes horror films and you do not find many women like that. At least I don't. The waitress came to our table and took our plates and asked if we were interested in dessert. I asked Bella, but she shook her head no.
I told the waitress, "No thank you but you can bring me the bill."
I asked Bella, "So did you enjoy everything alright?"
She said, "Everything was great but I enjoyed your company the most. Thanks for coming out with me."
I said, "No problem. I was so glad you finally called."
I looked over at her and she blushing and she just doesn't know what that is doing to me. I paid for our meals and left a tip on the table. We left the restaurant and started driving to the movie theater. We made it there in no time with my driving.
As we were getting out of the car Bella asked, "Do you have someone coming after you or something?"
I gave her a confusing look and said, "Why do you ask that?"
She said, "Well with the way you drive, I was thinking you are on the run from the police or something."
I laughed and said, "Sorry about that. This is how I normally drive. I didn't mean to scare you."
She just laughed at me as we walked into the movie theater.
We walked up to the window and I said, "Can I get two tickets for The Collector?"
We had twenty minutes before the movie starts so I asked Bella what she wanted to do in the mean time.
She said, "Well when I have time to kill, I usually go play games in the arcade until its time. But that's just me."
I said, "That is what I would do too, but I must say that I didn't expect for you to say something like that."
Bella laughed as she said, "When are you going to learn that I am not your average girl." To past the time we played House of the Dead and we had a fun time. Bella seemed to be really competitive, but I found that side of her sexy. We made it pretty far in the game when I ended getting killed and eventually Bella was out the game too. She wanted to play again, but I told that our movie was about to start.
We went to the concession stand and bought Goobers, a slushee, and got our complimentary popcorn. We enter the movie and found the perfect seats.
After the movie:
"That movie was awesome. Some parts even made me jump", I said as we walked to the car.
Bella said, "Yeah I especially like the part when you grabbed my arm. That was priceless. I thought that was something the girl does to the guy."
I was stumped because I didn't know how to react to that.
I said, "Well, I guess it was role reversal tonight. Just don't tell anyone ok?"
She said, "Your secret is safe with me. Besides I don't think there is anything wrong with a guy showing his vulnerable side. There should be more guys like you."
It was great hearing Bella say she didn't mind my vulnerable moment as she called it. I seriously think I am falling hard over this girl already. I can't help but hope she is feeling the same way.
I said, "I wish this night didn't have to end, but I have an early shift at the hospital tomorrow."
She said, "Oh I understand. I should probably get some studying done anyway."
On the ride to her house we continued to discuss the movie. We pulled outside her house and I walked with her to the door. She put the key in her door and turned to me.
She said, "I really had a great time tonight Edward. I would love to do this again soon." I said, "I enjoyed myself as well. I definitely want to see you again."
She blushed when I said that. We stood there in an awkward silence because I think we both were thinking the same thing. My thoughts were, man I want to kiss her, but I don't know if that would be appropriate. Well we did already kiss so maybe it would be ok. I decided to play it safe and kiss her on the cheek.
"Good night Bella", I said and gave a peck on the cheek.
I turned to walk away when Bella called my name, "Edward".
I turned back around and when I did Bella grabbed my shirt and pulled me close and the next thing I knew we were in a lip lock at the door. The kiss still had the same passion from the other night. The feeling was amazing. I could hear the fire works going off in my head and that let me know that this was something genuinely real. We both finally pulled away panting hard, trying to find the air to breathe in.
She had a smirk on her face when she said, "Good night Edward. Call me tomorrow." She was proud of what she just done.
I said, "Good night Bella. I can't wait it call you tomorrow."
With that, we both went our separate ways. I got in my car and drove home with thoughts of Bella stuck in my head. I made it home and couldn't help the big stupid grin I felt forming on my face.
In the living room I notice that Alice, Jasper, Emmett, and Rosalie were there again playing cards.
Emmett looked at me and said, "Hey bro, what you so happy about? You come in spinning around like some school girl in love."
I said to him, "I don't know if its love, but I just know its something."
Rosalie said, "Somebody had a hot date that must have went well."
Alice said, "Is that why you didn't want to go with us? You could have brought her too you know. So when do we get to meet her? Based on how you are looking right now, I can tell this girl and I are going to be the best of friends."
I said to Alice, "All in due time. I don't want to jinx anything. Well good night guys. I have a internship in the morning."
I went into my room and changed into my pajamas. I still smelled Bella's strawberry scent on me.
I climbed into bed knowing that my dreams would be good tonight because I will be replaying one the best nights of my life in my sleep.
A/N: Hey guys, so that was Chapter 6. What did you guys think? Hated it? Loved it? You let me KNOW!!! The Collector was a movie I actually did go to see and it was great. I didn't go into detail because I didn't want to ruin it for anyone. Remember, even 1 word review is still a review in my book.
