Chapter 6

Bellas POV

"What do you mean you killed him?" I asked.

"Well you see.. I took his gun and I shot him with it." Edward replied.

"No, I get that."

"Then what don't you get?" He asked me.

"Why didn't you question him and see what it was he wanted from me?"

Edward looked angry. It was almost like he forgot about the fact we still didn't know why I was the one these men were looking for.

"I wanted him dead. He thought I was bluffing." He growled.

"Ok, ok. Hey?" I asked him.


"I love you."

"I love you too Bella, with all of my heart." He replied.

I started to laugh because I thought that this was really ironic, but the look on Edwards face was nothing but funny, he seemed genuinely hurt.

"Hey, you know I didn't mean anything by it. You know I think you are the most compassionate person I have ever met." I said, hopeful that he would forgive me.

"Bella, I'm not a person." He said, clearly still unhappy.

"Yes you are. You're my person."

I know, it sounds so lame and so cliché but really, Edward is my everything. And although this makes no sense whatsoever, but when I told him that, he got a smile I will never forget. And it was at that point I realized something. He may not be "human" physically, but inside, he really, really is the most "human" I have ever come across. And trust me, I know a lot of humans.

Edwards POV

She could be lying or she could be completely honest. I'd like to say I completely believe her when she tells me that she sees me as an actual person and not as a monster, but really, it's hard for me to believe that. Especially since I can't hear her thoughts for myself.
