I decided to get over my laziness to write the last chapter. Enjoy. ;D
The only thing that kept me from strangling Mike was Edward. Well, that, and the fact that I don't think the movie theater staff would be too happy if I murdered someone on the premises.
I could tell he was trying to get closer to me, but I had faith that Edward wouldn't let him. How could he when I was in Edward's lap? I sat there, playing with his fingers and tried to pay attention to the movie. It was pretty funny, actually. Edward and I laughed loudly when a menacing-looking vampire bared his fangs. I attempted to control my laughter but it was hard. I couldn't even imagine Edward or his other family members with fangs. It just seemed morally wrong.
I frowned when a lady and her small child sat down beside us, coming in late, and complained.
"I can't see!" whined the young boy.
I knew that the women would ask for me to move so I decided to save her from wasting her breath.
I sat down next to Mike.
Edward glanced at me warily and grasped my hand, rubbing circles on my wrist. I smiled up at him and he smiled back. But my smile turned into a grimace when I felt Mike's foot nudge mine – no doubt it was intentional. This was just wonderful, he was trying to play footsie with me. Well, two could play that game.
With as much force as I could muster, I lifted my leg and slammed down my foot on his. I stifled a laugh as he groaned out in pain and cursed silently.
"Sorry. Leg spasm," I muttered, smug. Edward was chuckling as well.
Since I had taken care of Mike for the time being, I relaxed considerably and leaned into Edward's side. I shivered as he leaned down to whisper in my ear.
"You're so adorable."
I shook my head. "Yeah, right," I replied sarcastically, rolling my eyes.
"It's true. You're too adorable for your own good."
"I could say the same about you," I murmured back.
"You need your eyes checked. I'm far from adorable," he suggested.
I didn't answer him. We could go on like this forever and he it was most probable that he would win.
I darted my eyes at Mike, wanting to get a quick glance, and found that it looked like he had recovered from his injury. I also caught a glimpse of Jessica, who appeared sullen. I felt bad for her for a moments. Mike was acting like she wasn't even there. It reminded me of how extraordinarily lucky I was to have Edward....
Bella's heart beat and breathing slowed down to an even rhythm, the beautiful sound echoing in my ears. She was asleep. The movie was rather boring, and seemed to lack a plot. However, the fangs and black clothing was quite funny.
Everyone in the theater gasped in fright when the main character lunged towards a human, going for the neck. I contemplated taking Bella home where she could sleep peacefully in bed and decided that was for the best. As I was about to pick her up, I saw Newton's hand stroke her hair.
I couldn't help myself.
"What are you doing? Get off of her!" I hissed lowly.
"Just getting something out her hair, Cullen. Don't eat me," he retorted.
Interesting choice of words, I thought.
I lifted her into my arms and cradled her to my chest, making my way out of the theater and to my car.
As I drove towards her house I noticed that Bella was a fairly deep sleeper. She hadn't stirred once since we left the theater. She only ever moved in her sleep if she was having a nightmare. Only then would she thrash.
It was about six o'clock when I pulled into the driveway and carried Bella into her room. I walked the whole way at a human pace. I did not want to disturb her.
I wrapped her in her quilt and wrapped my arms around her, resting my cheek upon her hair. It was silent for an unmeasurable amount of time excluding her breathing and heart beat. It was very calming for me and it made me wonder how I ever survived without her.
My thoughts quickly changed directions when I heard a tap on the window.
Of course Emmett would be the only person who would disrupt this kind of peace. I sighed as I nodded my head, granting him access. He came in with the most ridiculous grin on his face.
When I read his thoughts, I knew if I were human, there was heavy chance that I would be blushing.
"Eddie's jealous! Eddie's Jealous!" he sang.
"I'm going to kill Alice for telling you. And don't think I won't get you back either," I said, my jaw tight.
"If you say so." I shrugged and then lurched forward to tackle him.
I pinned him to the ground. It was hard to fight off his strength, it being so much superior to mine, but the advantage of hearing his thoughts helped a great deal.
"Don't you dare speak of it to anyone else. You'll just twist the truth."
"You're such a prude sometimes, you know that?"
"Whatever, Emmett. I want to be alone with Bella, could you leave please?" I released him and went to sit on the edge of Bella's bed.
"Bye my little prude of a brother."
He laughed and jumped out of the window while I took out my cell phone, ready to yell at a certain pixie-like sister of mine...
THE END. I'm not happy at all with the way it turned out, but I'm so tired. I'm surprised I was able to stay awake to write this. :)
