PLEASE READ!!!!: Okay, I know I haven't posted a story in a long time but that's only because I struggle to write a story without some type of inspiration. For some bizarre reason, school gives me that inspiration I desperately need and I go back the 25th so hopefully I will be writing more. So, I wrote this about 5 months ago and never posted it because I want to make it into a fairly long story, and I can not think of any decent plots. So I'm counting on you reviewers to give me some plot or scene ideas that you would like to see in this story. I'll try my hardest to keep an open mind to anything. I thoroughly enjoy writing through Edward's P.O.V for some reason and I would love to continue this story. Sorry for the rambling, here's the story:
****note****: Italics are thoughts Edward is reading.
I was sitting at the lunch table glaring at the vile Mike Newton while he stared at my Bella. Who did he think he was? What else did I have to do that would show him that she belonged to me and no one else? I narrowed my eyes at him, and felt a low growl emanate subconsciously between my clinched teeth. He turned around at once, and I got the satisfaction of the terrified expression that played across his face.
"Edward!" Bella hissed. My eyes turned to her at as soon as she spoke my name.
"What?" I asked innocently.
"You know very well what. I swear you almost gave poor Mike a heart attack," she snapped.
"Poor?" I raised my eyebrows incredulously. "You are actually showing sympathy for him?"
"Edward Cullen? Are you…jealous?" She asked smiling widely. Why was she grinning like that? Was she really implying that I was envious of Mike? That boy would have to fight till his death if he tried to get Bella for himself. Of course, if I was involved in that battle, it wouldn't be much of a fight.
But she was right, I was jealous.
"He's just getting on my nerves, Bella," I told her, avoiding the original question. I had no hope that she wouldn't notice; she was too observant to be fooled.
Alice leaned over the table towards Bella. "Translation, he's jealous and doesn't want you to know it." She smirked.
"Alice, are you trying to undermine my self-control?" I growled tensely.
"You know it's true," she stated matter-of-factly.
"Yes, it is, Alice! Are you happy now?" I nearly shouted. A few heads turned in the cafeteria, including Newton's. I gripped the edge of the table, my fingers probably leaving impressions in the wood, and searched his thoughts.
Man has Cullen lost it or what? I bet Bella's turned off by that. She's too nice for his temper.
I heard Bella sigh and all of my attention was immediately captivated by her.
"Edward, there's no reason to be jealous. You know I belong to you," she soothed.
"I agree, but I can't help but have some feeling of envy when he's shouting his fantasies in his head. It is very hard to endure with nothing to distract me."
"Then let me distract you…" she mused.
I smiled at her, clearly seeing what she was thinking. Maybe if Newton saw me kiss Bella then he would lay off.
Suddenly I saw Bella slip from the edge of her chair and her head was aiming toward the hard, linoleum floor. But, as always, I caught her as soon as I registered the thought that she was falling. Both Alice and I couldn't help but laugh at her. Well, at least I was trying to contain my laughter while Alice giggled uncontrollably. Ah, would my Bella ever not be fraught with peril? I doubted it.
Only a little over a couple of seconds had passed by this time and Bella was still in my arms, glaring up at me, the blush I adored so much painted across her cheeks.
"You are very good at distractions," I told her, flashing her a smile. I pressed my lips in a tight line, trying to hold back laughter.
"That's not what I meant," she grumbled. I laughed freely at her adorable expression and sat her back up in her chair. I could feel Newton's gaze on us and I decided to give him something else to stare at. I wasn't too fond of displaying our endearment in public; I didn't like having an audience. But if this would give Bella what she wanted – due to the fact that she always desired to kiss me – and disturb Newton, well, that is two wins in one; something I couldn't resist. Of course, I always had the yearning to kiss her, too.
I pulled her over to me and closed the distance between our faces. I could feel Newton gape at us and I began to cross some of the carefully drawn lines that I drew for Bella's expense – Alice wasn't the only person that could undermine my self-control. I made sure I didn't go too far though. When I broke away from the kiss, it left her gasping for air and me giving a smirk that grew more pronounced every second. I probed Newton's thoughts to see his reaction.
What does he have that I don't have? What did she like so much about him? Looks? Money? I don't think Bella is that shallow but what else could it be? I should be the one kissing her, not freaky Cullen. She's going to have to get over him sometime or another and I will be ready when that day comes. It's not fair. Cullen never dated anyone until Bella came along. He turned down every girl. What did he like about Bella? Stupid question. There was everything to like about her. Ugh, I can't stand him.
Ah, at least we have one thing in common. We both hold an aversion towards one another.
His scrutiny of the situation had me in such high spirits, I almost missed the remark Alice muttered at our embrace…almost.
"You two need to get a room."
I shot her a look.
"And you need to grow a couple of inches," I said back. Bella elbowed me lightly in the ribs and I turned to her with an amused expression.
"Are you still jealous?" she asked.
"Not so much…But can I ask you a favor?"
"Don't mention any of this to Emmett. He won't let me live it down for the next century." I rolled my eyes. Despite the fact that Emmett is twenty, well, physically at least, he is the most immature. He is older than all of us not counting Esme and Carlisle.
"What, just because you were jealous?" she said playfully.
"Just promise, please," I begged, knowing she would easily give in if I looked her directly in the eyes.
"That's not fair," she breathed, turning her head.
"What's not fair?" I asked, pretending to be confused. I already knew the answer.
"Staring at me like that," she accused. "You don't have to do that. I would have said yes anyways."
"I know, I just like seeing your human reactions. It's…entertaining. So is that a promise?"
"Yes, it is, Edward. I still don't see the need to. Is Emmett really that immature?"
"And you really have to ask that question?"
"True. But…your only human Edward," she pointed out wryly.
I rolled my eyes at her but her simple statement had my heart aching to be human for her. I probably would have considered it funny if Newton didn't have me in an ill-tempered mood. Maybe Bella was right and I was bipolar, due to the fact that I was elated just a minute ago. But the attempted punch-line was just a reminder of what I was and how, in some aspects, that Mike would be better for her. If she was with him, she could have a life. She could have children and not have her soul taken away from her just because I was too selfish to live forever without her. Of course, when she did die my time on Earth would be numbered anyways. Once Bella was gone, I would follow soon after.
I would give anything to be human for her. If things were that way, she wouldn't have to sacrifice a shot at heaven. It wasn't even a shot really. It was more like her destiny. How could it not be for one such as her?
"Edward, if you become any more engrossed in your thoughts you're going to owe the school a new table. And I don't think that is going to be any easy thing to explain," Alice whispered, too low for human ears. I looked down at her, confused, and then felt that my fingers had left broad dents in the cheap wood.
"Bite me," I muttered back.
Thanks for reading and please review. Good, bad, whatever. Reviews are really helpful. Oh, and if you think that Edward would never say "bite me", he does in Midnight Sun and I thought it was pretty funny so I decided to have him say it in this story:)
Oh yeah, I apologize for the suckish title. I'm not great with titles.
