AUTHOR'S NOTE: I'm back just like a promised! I am so happy to be back and writing again. I really needed a break after going through my first year of college. Let me say that it was a very interesting experience. I made a lot of good friends, had some good classes/professors and then there was also relationship/roommate/professor drama. Anyways, the bottom line is that I'm back and happy to hear from all of you again!
This story is a sequel to My Song is Love, however, it is going to be much shorter. I know I told all of you in my previous story that I wasn't sure what I wanted to write for the new story. I was debating between making an Alternate Universe fic or creating just a whole new story for the Twilight series. Then, I started getting reviews telling me to think about making a sequel and I ultimately decided to go with that. So I would like to thank all of you reviewers for the idea and here is the finished product. I hope that you all enjoy and please be sure to review! I've missed you all so much! =]
CH. 1- BELLA'S POV
"No more pain. No more pain…" I sighed to myself as I continued to sniffle.
I had been singing the Mary J. Blige song all day with a permanent repeat on my stereo. Pathetic I know but I was just hurting so badly. There was nothing that anyone could do or say to make me feel better, especially not my so-called boyfriend Edward Cullen.
"No more pain. No drama…" I mumbled along with the words as tears streamed down my face.
It had to have been more than 2 hours now since that horrible scene. It hurt everytime I thought about it. My heart was aching with every pathetic breath I took.
"Talk about pain. Please stop singing because I think my ears just might fall off. Hearing you sing this over and over is absolute agony. Good thing Charlie isn't here," the voice of Edward's sister Alice called out to me.
"I just want to be alone right now," I whispered burying my head into my pillow.
"No Bella. Now listen to me. You need to stop all of this and talk to Edward-", She tried to get out before I interrupted her.
"Do not say that name ever again!" I shouted into my pillow in anger and despair.
"Bella," Alice replied with a sigh of frustration.
"No Alice, you weren't there. I know you probably saw it in your vision but it's not the same," I stated finally taking the pillow away from my face to look at her.
"Say it again," Edward said to me again with a huge smile on his handsome face.
"I really don't get why you keep making me say it," I said with a pout while crossing my arms.
"Because I'm more than positive I will never hear those words come out of your beautiful little mouth ever again. Now please say it, one more time," Edward said before leaning down to look into my eyes.
"I want to go shopping," I said defeated with a smile on my face.
"Oh man," Edward replied with that perfect laugh of his.
"Just because I don't like to go shopping doesn't mean that it won't ever happen okay?" I asserted before sticking my tongue out.
"Stand still," Edward answered in a serious tone.
"What is it?" I asked as my heart started to pound in shock.
"You have something on your mouth," He said leaning in.
"Edward-," I tried to get out before he cut me off.
"My mouth against yours," He interrupted before he started kissing me passionately.
"Hmm," I moaned out as his sweet tongue entered my eager mouth.
"I love you Bella Swan," Edward whispered against my mouth.
"And I you," I replied with a smile.
"Alright, let's go in there and get this over with," I sighed as I pushed the front door open of the store.
"Wow, for someone who said that they wanted to go shopping, you sure don't sound eager," Edward chuckled while holding the door open for me to enter.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah," I replied with a roll of my eyes.
I started walking through the store with only one thought in mind. Have Edward pick his birthday gift without noticing and get out of here. I looked behind me expecting to see him following me only to see him staring out the window with an intense expression on his face.
"Edward?" I called out to him with a raise of an eyebrow.
"Go ahead without me Bella. I will be right there," He returned before swiftly leaving the shop.
Shaking my head in wonder I continued walking through the shop. How in the world was I supposed to do this now that he went outside? I looked through different items but I couldn't really focus. I glanced up at the window and saw Edward speaking with someone. I walked a little closer to the store window hiding behind clothing racks. Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was a beautiful young woman he was talking too.
She was tall and slender with bright blue eyes and radiant blonde hair. She was absolutely gorgeous and I know that it shouldn't have bothered me because my Edward loved only me. Just then, Edward started laughing that amazing laugh while he lightly touched her arm. My heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. I couldn't breathe and I couldn't think. But what hurt the most was the fact that she was a human. Edward would never pay a human the time of day and here he was laughing along to whatever she was telling him.
Biting my lip to keep the tears at bay, I ran out of the shop right pass them.
"Bella!" Edward shouted after me as I heard him running behind me.
I knew that he could catch up to me in less than a second but he had to slow down his pace while in public, so I took that to my advantage. I ran as fast as my legs could carry me before tripping and falling to the ground. Man I hated being clumsy. As I tried to get up, I felt his strong arms wrap around me.
"Bella what's wrong? Why were you running away from me?" Edward asked with a hurt expression adorning his handsome features.
"Edward, who is she?" I asked with tears forming in my eyes as I tried to slow my rapid breathing.
"Tiffany? I don't think you understand-," He tried to get out with amusement on his face.
"Do you think this is some kind of game to you?" I asked as tears began streaming down my face.
"No, of course. Just let me explain-," He tried to get out again before I interrupted him.
"There is nothing to explain. I saw you with her. Touching her, laughing with her. I know you and I know you wouldn't open up to someone like that unless you cared about them," I replied with sniffles.
He stared at me without uttering a single word in defense.
"Silence speaks louder than words Edward," I struggled to get out before finally getting to my feet.
"Bella," Edward said with a sigh his arms still wrapping around me.
"Please do not touch me. Don't talk to me anymore. Don't call me. Don't visit me. We are through," I asserted as I started shrugging him off and walking away.
"I'm not going to leave you alone Bella," Edward called after me.
"I need space Edward and if you don't leave me alone, I'm going to call the cops after you!" I yelled back at him knowing full well he knew I meant my father, the Chief of Police, Charlie.
"Please you don't understand…" He trailed off behind me as I headed for my truck.
Alice just stared at me while resting her head on her hands with amusement and pity in her golden brown eyes.
"See, I knew you wouldn't understand," I said with a sigh throwing myself on my bed.
"No, I do understand what you think happened. You feel intimated by Tiffany because he is actually paying her the time of day, which I have to admit, does not match his personality. But you really do not understand the reason why he was acting that way with her or who she is to be fair. You wouldn't let him explain himself," Alice replied with a shake of her head as she laid down next to me.
"Why should I listen to him? He wouldn't even deny the fact that he has feelings for Bethany!" I shouted out in anger.
"Tiffany," Alice corrected with a smile on her face.
"Whatever," I yelled back at her throwing my hands in the air in frustration.
"Look, what you think is right is wrong okay? He does care about her but for a particular reason and if you don't let him explain, then you guys will never be able to make up," Alice stated simply.
"Why was he with her then? I know that you know," I asserted sitting up to look at her.
"That I do know but I cannot say. Just know that he loves you and everything that he does is and has always been for you," She said with finality pulling me into a hug.
I sighed against her. I knew that she was right but I just couldn't make myself believe it.
Sorry if the chapter seemed really depressing but it was really necessary in order to set up the story. I wonder what is really going on with Edward and Tiffany? Could he really be cheating on Bella? I guess you will have to read the next chapter and find out!
