Chapter 12!! Read and Review!
I woke up the next morning to a sticky tear stained face. I glanced at my clock which blinked 7:30. I groaned and pulled myself out of bed. I walked over to my closet to pick out my clothes for the day when I noticed myself in the mirror. I look awful! I had streaks of black running down my face from my makeup and I still had a red mark from when Corey hit me. I reached up to touch my cheek and it did still sting. I grabbed a pair of Aeropostale light blue yoga pants and a black Aero v-neck shirt. I grabbed my black Airwalk moccasins and my bathroom stuff. I walked quietly down the hall to the bathroom and walked in. I turned on the shower so it could heat up and I stripped down. I got in the shower grabbing a washcloth on the way. The first thing I need to do is to wash my face. I finished my shower and jumped out, wrapping a towel around my body. I pulled on my clothes and dried my face before putting on enough makeup to cover up the slight bruise that was forming. I cleaned up before walking out and almost right into Jasper.
"What are you doing up so early?"
"Why did you ditch us last night?"
"Not now, please Jasper."
I pushed past him and walked to my room. I shut my door and leaned up against it, sliding to the floor. I put my head in my hands as the events of last night came rushing back. He promised it would never happen again, he promised. I stood up and walked to my dresser to get my phone. I glanced at the screen and saw I had three missed texts.
Bella! Call me, I want to know how it went last night!
It went fine, Alice. We just went to the movies then he drove me home.
I want details tomorrow in class!
Okay Alice J
Bella what happened! You ditched us last night!
Sorry Rose, Corey asked me out last minute.
Oh, well I want details in school!
Will do =)
Good morning sweetheart.
Good morning Corey
I laid my phone down but as soon as I did it started ringing. I picked it up and glanced at the caller id which was flashing 'Corey.'
"Hi Bella, how are you doing?"
"I'm fine, but I can't talk long, I have to go cook breakfast."
"Okay that's fine. Goodbye."
Before I had a chance to say anything else he hung up. I shrugged and put my phone down.
Weird spot to stop but I am going to skip to the night before the dance. I am so excited to write this part!
I walked out of my room in a rush and knocked on Alice's door. She muttered for me to come in and I opened the door and walked in. She was sitting on her bed doing her nails but she looked up when I walked in.
"Edward I am sorry but I have tried my hardest to get her to not like him but it's not working. She likes him why can't you just leave it at that? Maybe this time he actually has good intentions."
"He never has good intentions. I don't trust him and I don't think she is safe with him."
"Well until we can prove that, there is really nothing we can do. Are you still going with us tomorrow?"
"Yes just in case he tries to do something at the dance."
"Give it up Edward."
I glared t her and walked back to my room, muttering to myself. He is going to hurt her, I just know he is. I don't know what I would do if he hurt her, I really don't.
Tomorrow is the Saturday of the big dance. Alice and Rose are going to come over in the morning so we can all get ready. I lay down in my bed and fell asleep thinking about tomorrow. Jasper woke me up the next morning by banging on my door yelling to me that Alice and Rose were here. They came running in my room and I jumped out of bed. They laughed and threw their bags in my chair. They were going to sleep over after the dance so they just brought their stuff now.
"I have to take a shower before you guys decide what you are going to do to me."
They nodded and sat on my bed playing with a bunch of beauty items they had. I took a quick shower throwing on a pair of shorts and a tank top on afterward. I walked back into my room and Alice made me sit in a chair. About four hours later they finally finished my hair and makeup. I looked in the mirror and loved what I saw. My hair was in long flowing waves down my back and my makeup was simple but very pretty. Alice and Rose did each other's hair and by the time we were all done, it was time to get our dresses on. We all went into separate rooms to change, since the boys were all at Alice's house getting ready we had Jasper's room to use. I pulled on my dress which was a strapless beaded blue ballgown. After I got my dress on, I walked back to my room and found Alice and Rose. Alice had on a long yellow beaded lace dress. Rose had on a long red rhinestone dress. They both looked beautiful.
"You guys look gorgeous!"
"We all do! I can't wait till prom! Just think what we are going to look like then!"
We were all still laughing when my dad called up the stairs. We grabbed our purses and walked down the stairs. Jasper and Emmett were standing in the living room with my dad behind them. Rose and Alice walked to them and I hung behind. My dad came around with a camera and they all got a group picture then separate couples, then all girls, all boys and one of Jasper and I. After my dad was done taking pictures they all left with a promise to see me there. My dad and I sat in the living room watching TV for another hour before Corey finally got here. My dad got one picture of us and then we left. We got in Corey's car and he started driving before he turned to me. He handed me a box with a bow on it.
"I noticed you didn't have a necklace, so I got you one."
I opened the box and inside was a silver heart shaped necklace with three little diamonds in it. It matched my jewelry for the night. I had on a bracelet with a heart charm and diamond three hoop earrings and a diamond stack ring. I smiled and took it out of the box, putting it around my neck.
"Thank you. I love it."
We got to the school and Corey parked in the closest spot available. We got out and Corey grabbed my hand before we walked in. As soon as we walked in I heard Alice call my name. We walked over to her and we talked for a little while before Edward walked over. Edward looked amazing in a black tux with a blue vest and tie. Corey just had on a black tux with a white shirt and a black tie.
"Hello Bella. You look beautiful tonight."
"Thank you Edward. You don't look half bad yourself."
He smiled and Corey gripped my hand really tight. I winced and told Alice I would see her later before Corey pulled me away. He found a table away from most people and practically threw me in the chair before he sat down.
"What the hell was that about!?"
"I was just being civil; he's my best friend's brother."
"Well then I don't want you hanging out with Alice anymore. I don't want you near him at all, and if that means you have to give up Alice then so be it."
"I have already told you this once, you are not going to tell me who I can and can't be friends with."
He grabbed my arm making me wince again, and pulled me out of the chair knocking it over in the process. He pulled my out the back door and into the parking lot. He pushed me up against the wall and pinned my wrists at my side.
"Corey get off of me!"
I tried to call for Jasper but he put his hand over my mouth. I tried to kiss me but I squirmed and I guess I annoyed him. He smacked me across the face again, a lot harder than last time though. My eyes started to tear and I whimpered underneath his hand. He smiled and he punched me, hard enough to hurt and probably leave a mark but not hard enough to knock me out. He pulled me forward and slammed me against the wall so I hit my head.
"Come on bitch pass out! I am going to get what I want tonight whether you like it or not."
He raised his hand to hit me again but someone grabbed his arm. He threw my on the ground and spun around. I closed my eyes and leaned my head back against the wall before I realized that it hurt too much to do so. I put my hand to the back of my head and it was covered in blood when I pulled it back. Alice and Rose ran up to me and dropped to the ground next to me.
"Oh my gosh Bella! You look awful; we need to get you to the hospital."
Alice pulled out her phone and was calling I assume an ambulance but I was starting to get sleepy. Edward knelled on the ground next to Alice and leaned towards me. He pulled my face in his hands and looked me in the eyes.
"Bella you cannot fall asleep. Stay awake, stay here with us. Come on love you need to stay awake."
"But I'm so tired."
"I know you are but you can't sleep right now. You can sleep later."
I turned to Alice still half falling asleep.
"Can I see your phone?"
She nodded and handed it to me with worry in her eyes. I dialed the number and put the phone to my ear. Edward's phone started ringing and he glanced curiously at me before pulling it out of his pocket.
"Edward, I'm calling to get that help now."
"You never needed to ask Bella, I was always here, I always will be."
I smiled and hung up the phone. Jasper fell to his knees on the ground next to me. He had worry and anger in his eyes.
"It's not the first time he has hit me."
"It was never as bad and he always promised it would never happen again. I always thought it was something I did or said."
"Bella it was never your fault. He is a sick son of a bitch and I promise he will never touch you again."
He pulled me into a hug and I felt safe and I knew that he meant what he said.
"Thank you Edward, I owe you big time man."
"You don't owe me anything Jasper. I'm just glad I got here in time when he decided to show his true colors"
The police and ambulance pulled up and my dad jumped out of his car.
"She's okay dad. I'm pretty sure she has a concussion though so we need to get her to the hospital. He's over there."
My dad stood up and walked over to where I assume Jasper pointed. The paramedics walked over and made everyone move while they checked me out. They said I most likely did have a concussion but they wouldn't know until we got to the hospital. The loaded me into the ambulance with Jasper. The others were going to follow. Jasper held my hand on my second trip to the hospital.
GAH! So glad to be rid of Corey, for now at least… haha..review! All the pictures of dresses and stuff on my profile under 'Fallin For you Pictures'
