I was in my room about to go to sleep when there was a knock on my bedroom door. Before I could even ask who it was the door opened to reveal my sister with a worried look on her face.
I stood alert, wondering what was going on. Finally she spoke.
"Umm, someone's downstairs, a guy, he looks like he's been crying."
Jacob mentioned he was going to hang out with his girl earlier. I emailed him an hour ago to see how it went but he never replied and I started to get worried something happened.
After hearing this new information, I feared the worst heading quickly down the stairs.
Once at the bottom of the stairs, my voice caught in my throat at the sight in front of me. There in the living room was none other than Edward Cullen looking restless with blood shot eyes.
It took all my strength not to go over there and comfort him. I clenched my fist, standing my ground. Though starting to forget why I was mad at him in the first place.
"Bella." Edward spoke at barely a whisper.
I had to strain to hear him, I swear If I wasn't looking right at him I wouldn't have even known he said anything.
Against my better judgment I said the first thing that came to me, noticing his weak appearance.
"Didn't you sleep?"
I was going to break any second now. I had to remind myself of what he did to me. What he was doing to me.
He shook his head as he went on with his plead.
"I just want to tell you something and then I'll leave you alone."
I watched as he continued, not giving me eye contact in the process which bugged me more than it should.
"Bella, you're really great ok, you're honest, sweet, funny, and fun to be around and I blew it. I was too much of an ass to realize how special you are and I'm sorry."
I gasped at his confession totally not expecting that, watching on edge as he headed towards the door.
Don't do it Bella, Don't do it.
A couple more steps and he's out of your life forever.
But I care for him and obvious he cares for me otherwise why would he say that?
To have the last laugh.
But look at him.
Ok, you have a point.
Edward reached for the door handle as I fidgeted nervously, silently battling with myself.
Bella what are you doing?
"Wait!" I exclaimed.
Edward stopped short.
"Is it true?" I asked causing Edward turned to face me.
"That I'm an ass?" He asked, confused.
I lightly laughed at his answer.
"No, that I knew." I teased.
He weakly snickered in response.
God I missed his laugh.
As sick as it was, after all the pain he caused me it actually felt good to know I made him laugh, that I made him happy for a brief moment in his tragic state. I gulped feeling nervous again.
"That, that you love me?"
Please say no, I don't need to be feeling guilty too.
Edward blushed looking down at the ground again. Frustrated I exclaimed.
Edward's head immediately snapped up, locking his eyes with mine.
"Of course it's true Bell." He stated.
My heart started to pound seeing truth behind his words. I weakly smiled.
Edward sighed frustrated not hearing what he wanted to hear.
"Thank you huh?"
I ignored his statement continuing my argument.
"You're great Edward, when you let your guard down but, I could never trust you considering your history." I confessed.
Edward huffed somewhat upset.
"Here I thought you were the one person who would never prejudge me." He stated.
It would never work, after a while he would get bored and leave me heartbroken.
This is for the best.
Trying to stay strong I continued.
"I think friends are all we can be." Suddenly Edward snapped.
"I don't want to be your friend!"
Feeling hurt and stupid for putting myself out there only to get rejected, I looked anywhere but at Edward.
Edward lifted my chin, making me face him. I was sure I would see rage in his eyes instead they were soft and somewhat pleading.
"I want to be your boyfriend."
Scared, I protested.
However, he ignored my argument, leaning down kissing me on the mouth.
I gasped in shock, frozen in place with Edward's lips on mine. Not getting a response he broke away, looking even more depressed than before if that was even possible.
"I'll go now." He said, dropping his hands from my face starting to walk away.
Working up the courage, I grabbed his arm holding him back.
"Don't." I pleaded.
He gave me a questioning look as I lean up grabbing his face in my hands, pressing my lips on his. His tensed posture relaxed against my touch.
He grabbed my waist pulling me closer to him as began to return my kiss. The kiss started sweet and gentle but ended up hard and passionate causing me to have to break away needing air. I smiled amused noticing Edward's eyes were still closed.
"Damn, you are a natural." He confessed, opening his eyes, smiling down at me in return.
I gulped staring at his love gaze eyes.
"I love you too." I said, softly.
His smile grew ear to ear, capturing my lips again.
Edward smiled smugly as I pulled from his embrace.
"You know what this means?"
I looked at him confused.
He grinned widely.
"I won the bet."
I playfully hit his arm.
He rubbed his arm in pain. I put my hands on my hips somewhat frustrated.
"Is that stupid bet all you care about?"
Edward came closer trying to calm me down taking my hands in his.
"Of course not, just stating the obvious."
I rolled my eyes.
Two Weeks Later
"Keys." Edward ordered, holding his hand out.
The look on Emmett's face was pure horror.
"No, come on Edward, it's my baby and like you said it's just a car." Emmett begged trying to win him over.
I shook my head at Emmett's weak attempts, biting my lip to keep from laughing. If he only knew all Edward ever talked about these past two weeks besides our relationship was that damn car and that he couldn't wait to see the look on Emmett's face when he took it from him, claiming it would be priceless.
I had to admit the way Emmett was acting was quite amusing.
Edward stuck with his demand, stating.
"Rules are rules."
Emmett grunted, handing his keys over. Edward smirked, opening the passenger door for me.
I happily took it, sitting down.
"Why thank you."
I gasped surprised, as Edward hoped over my side, getting in the driver's seat. Emmett cringed, as Edward's shoes marked the seat before sitting down. Edward pressed the gas pedal with the break still on.
"Oh, hear that rush." He teased.
I lightly chuckled as Emmett came over to the driver's side stressed out.
"Ok Edward, play times over."
Before I knew it Edward took off, speeding down the block. I looked back watching amused as Emmett dramatically fell to the ground on his knees yelling Edward's name in vain.
We busted out laughing.
"Come on, don't you think he suffered enough?" I questioned.
Edward play pouted.
"Nah, I think we should let him sweat it out a little longer."
"You're so bad."
He turned smiling sweetly.
"That's what you love about me."
I frowned at this but it soon turned into a smile.
Edward leaned down stealing at kiss.
Note: As you might have guess, Edward does not keep Emmett's car. He just drives it around a little bit making Emmett sweat it out. He gives it back. Review for the last time, pretty please! ;)
