I have recently had a lot of inspiration for writing this story. I love Emmett and read hundreds of stories about him. So, let's go on with this chapter.
I sighed and pulled the sweater I had changed into tighter around me. I moved over to the couch and sat down. Bri moved and sat close to me.
"Are you okay Bella?" She asked, concern covering her face. I sighed and looked up at her.
"Yeah, I'm fine, just annoyed. Why wouldn't Emmett or Jasper stick up for me? Jasper, my brother, and Emmett, my supposed 'mate'" I finger quoted mate. "And that little midget just jumps up and yell at me. I just can't believe she would do that." I stood up, pacing back and forth with agitation. Just thinking about it made my hands shake in anger.
"Bella, calm down." Riley called from across the room. I closed my eyes and thought calming thoughts.
"I need to hunt. Riley come with me?" I asked, looking over at him, my eyes the darkest shade of onyx. Riley nodded his head and looked over at Bri, silently asking if she'd be okay by herself. She nodded and looked down at a book she picked up. I grabbed my Volturi cloak and slipped on a pair of leather boots. I looked over at Riley and saw that he was ready. We walked out the front door and headed north. The run was smooth and the forest helped calm me down. Seeing the trees, rush past me as if I was flying distracted my thoughts. We soon came upon the Canadian border.
"Riley, split up and we'll meet back in half an hour. Be quick, and please, be very discreet." He nodded and pretty much vanished in thin air. I sniffed the air and waited. Soon enough, a young couple was going to approach me. I knew that they were innocent, but I truly didn't care right now. I relaxed and let my instincts take over. I quickly pounced on the woman, knowing she wouldn't fight as much. I pulled her back into the darkness that surrounded me and quickly drained her. Once the taste of blood had touched my tongue, I was in frenzy. I dropped her body and jumped over to the man, snapping his neck and letting the sweet nectar drip down my throat. I shuddered in delight. Sadly, the blood ran out. I grabbed both bodies and swung them over my shoulder. I ran back into the forest to a small clearing. Setting the bodies on top of each other, I set them aflame, erasing any and all evidence of them. I walked back to where I was going to meet Riley, taking time to think about what Alice said and what my brother said, or lack of. Waiting for Riley, I sat down on a nearby rock. It wasn't long before he came and sat across from me on the dirt floor.
"Was I a little too over reactive? I asked him, not wanting to meet his eyes.
"Bella, you were how you normally are. Don't change how you act." He told me sincerely.
"Ri, this is my mate I'm going to be around. He's not going to want me. I drink human blood; I kill vampires, and humans. God, I'm a mess. Vampires fear me." If I could cry, I probably would be. Riley shook his head at me.
"Bella, if Emmett is truly your mate, he'd accept you as who you are. Moreover, with Jasper, just imagine him coming to you randomly and saying all the stuff you said. Wouldn't you need time to process it too?" I shrugged my shoulders. "You know the answer to that question Bella." I nodded agreeing with him.
"I just don't want to go back there for now." I told him. I truly didn't. High tension, with my anger, didn't mix. He nodded and stood up.
"Let's go back. I don't want to be so far away from Bri." I nodded and we took off, running back to Forks. We reached back eventually. I left the two alone and headed up to my room. I sat on the middle of the bed and crossed my legs. I closed my eyes started to meditate, tuning out the world around me. Focusing on my breathing, even though it wasn't necessary to breathe, I did so anyway. It slowly released my anger. I don't know how long I sat there but I snapped back to focus when I hear Bri knock on my door.
"Emmett is coming, he's a few miles away. What would you like to do?" I shook my head.
"I don't want to see anyone at all. Tell him to go away." She nodded and backed out of my room. Soon enough, I heard Emmett knock on the door.
"Where's Bella?" He asked, his voiced laced with anxiety.
"She doesn't want to see anyone." She told him. He groaned.
"Where is she? I'm not gonna ask again." He told her, getting a bit angry. I heard Riley move close to Bri.
"I'm pretty sure Bri said Bella doesn't want to see anyone. We'll tell her that you came by." I could tell that Riley made Emmett leave, with a small bit of convincing. I sighed and lay back down onto the pillows. I covered my face with my hands. I waited until it was about 11 in the morning before calling Carlisle. I asked where I could meet him and he said the hospital. I agreed and said I'll be there soon. I showered and pulled my long hair into a ponytail to keep it out of my face. I quickly threw on a long black blouse, a pair of jeans and my brown leather boots. Grabbing the keys to the truck, I told Bri and Riley where I was going, ignoring the slight shock on their face as I walked out. I drove off to the hospital, anticipating this conversation with Carlisle. Before walking into the hospital, I slipped on a pair of sunglasses, covering up my eyes. I walked into the hospital and to the front desk.
"I have an appointment with Dr. Cullen." I told the secretary.
"Name please?" She asked, snapping her gum at me. I rolled my eyes.
"Isabella." She raised an eyebrow at me.
"Last name?" I just stared at her.
"Just Isabella is fine." I told her. She rolled her eyes at me and told Carlisle that I was there.
"Just go down the hall and it's the last door on your right." She told me, a bit snottily. I turned on my heel and headed towards his office. I knocked on the door and waited to hear him say come in before entering. I looked around his office. Dark wood walls and a large desk in the center. The degrees that were on the wall behind his desk were impressive. Quickly scanning over them I noticed over 6. Impressed, I didn't let it show on my face. I sat down on one of the leather chairs in front of his desk.
"How are you Isabella?" He asked. He noticed. I smirked slightly. I had always preferred it when people called me Isabella. It was more…regal, elegant, sophisticated.
"I'm fine, and yourself, Carlisle?" I responded. He nodded
"Fine as well. What brings you to my office, at the hospital of all places?" He questioned.
"As you can guess, last night didn't go to well and I wanted to know how everyone is over there. Currently, I haven't spoken to anyone, despite Emmett stopping by my house. However, Bri and Riley stopped him and made him leave." I told him. I crossed my arms and looked over at him.
"As you know, you and Emmett are mates, and even though the bond isn't complete, it still hurts for you two to be away from each other, no?" he questioned. I shrugged my shoulders in response. It hurt but I wasn't going to let someone who didn't stand up for me be my mate. "I can tell it does. Emmett was very hurt by Alice's words directed towards you and he made it clear to her after you left. However, you are his mate and he doesn't know how to deal with it, none of us do when it's regarding a battle between mates. Emmett was going crazy after you left and had to be calmed down multiple times by Jasper throughout the night. He does care for you Isabella. He just doesn't understand how to interact with you. I picked up on you having a bit of a temper no? He normally or rarely ever gets angry. Only things that truly bothers or upsets him gets him angry. It would be best if you talk to him." I nodded, slowly listening to a man I could call a voice of reason. He reminded me of Caius. A man who would be a good man, besides the fact that Carlisle was friendly all the time. I let out an unneeded sigh.
"And regarding Alice? She stepped way out of line. I understand that she and Jasper are mates but to attack me after a simple comment is unnecessary. I will tolerate her because of Jasper but don't think that I will come to like her and I will definitely put her in her place if needed." I told him. He nodded after rubbing his face.
"I understand Isabella. Is that all?" He asked, leaning back in his chair. I bit my lip, a bit nervous of asking the next question.
"Will Emmett still care for me even if I'm on a human diet? I don't want to change my diet." I asked him, sounding vulnerable. Even if I acted as if I didn't care, I did, and Emmett was my mate, a man who I loved, even though I wouldn't admit it to him yet. I cared about his opinion of me and if he would want to stay/be with me, despite my past and who I was.
"Emmett would love and care for you if you drank animal or human. He doesn't care. He came to me with the same question regarding him and animal blood. He questioned switching for you and I told him whatever made him happy. We would accept him either way." Carlisle told me honestly. I nodded and stood up.
"Thank you Carlisle, this means a lot." I told him. I walked over and hesitantly hugged him. He smiled down at me and wrapped his arms around me in a comforting embrace.
"Anytime Isabella, my door is open all the time." He responded. I let go and walked out of his office. I walked out, giving the secretary a glare and went into my truck. I pulled out my phone and dialed Emmett's number. He answered on the first ring.
"Bella?" It was if my heart swelled when he said my name. I didn't care what he called me, as long as it was my Emmett.
"Emmett?" I responded.
"Isabella, can we please see each other? I can't stand staying away from you for this long. It's tearing my apart. I can't think straight and I've driven a hole into the ground from walking in the same circle all night." He said exasperatedly. I giggled lightly. "Oh thank god. I love hearing that laugh." If I could blush, I probably would have.
"Meet me at my house in 20 minutes. I should be there by then." I told him, starting up my truck and heading home.
"I'll be there in 2 minutes. I'm running." He said to me. I could hear the smile in his voice.
"I'll see you then. And Emmet," I said, smiling.
"Yeah?" He questioned.
"I missed you." I said quietly and hung up, not waiting for a response.
Once I hit the forest roads, I started speeding, easily going 120 mph. I soon enough saw my house come up, and Emmett standing in front of it. Before I could even stop the car, Emmett yanked open the door, pulling me into a bear hug. I wrapped my arms tightly around his neck and my legs tightly around his waist. I rested my head in the crook of his neck and breathed deeply. Emmett, my Emmett. He smelled like cinnamon and vanilla, a unique scent only to him. He pulled away from me and gently tilted my head up. He leaned up slowly, too slowly for my liking. I tilted my head down and closed the space between our lips. It was as if two puzzle pieces fitting together. My lips moved against his easily, as if we had been doing it for years. His tongue licked against my bottom lip and I gasped lightly. He took the chance and slipped his tongue into my mouth greedily. He explored my mouth with ease and I groaned lightly. He trailed kisses down my neck and gently bit with each kiss. I bit my lip at his attack on my neck. With regret, I slowly pulled away.
"God, even in the short time, you don't know how much I missed you." He told me, laying another kiss against my lips.
"Trust me, I know. It hurt being away. But, we gotta talk." I told him, frowning slightly. He nodded, understanding I was serious. He slowly released me and my feet touched the ground. I grabbed his hand, smiling up at him and pulling him inside.
"Bri, Riley, leave." I said in a commanding voice. In an instant, they were gone. I walked through the foyer and into the living room. I took off my jacket and threw it onto one of the multiple couches around me. I sat down and waited until Emmett sat near me.
"I really don't know how we're supposed to act. I'm not used to affection and feelings towards people like the feelings I have towards you. We met not too long ago and the feelings I have for you are intense. Whether I'm angry or happy towards you, it's just weird. I've never had such feelings for a person. But last night, you're supposed to stick up for me, no? If you're my mate, Emmett, we stick with each other, aren't we?" I asked him. God, I was bearing my soul out to this man. But, god, I hope it's worth it.
He grabbed my hand and gently rubbed it with his thumb.
"I know Bella. I don't know, it's different for you and I. I'm sorry I didn't stick up for you. It's hard to choose between family I've known for decades and my mate I've known for only a short while. You're not a normal vampire and I'm not a normal vampire. Hell, I drink from animals. And you, you're, god, you're an angel of darkness. My angel of darkness." He said to me. I shook my head.
"I'm no angel Emmett. No where close." I said to him. "The things I've done…willingly, I'm no angel." I told him truthfully. He grabbed me from around my waist and pulled me into his lap.
"You're an angel Isabella. No matter what you say, you're my angel." He lowly whispered in my ear. God, why is this man so perfect. I'm not his angel. He's mine. Someone to save me from this terrible world. Someone to prove to me I'm no monster.
So what'd you guys think. I'm thinking of re-writing the first couple chapters because as you can see, my writing has changed dramatically. It's completely different and some aspects contradict each other so I'm definitely going to do it actually. I'll re-upload everything piece by piece so you guys get notifications. Thanks for reading!
