First I just want to say that I'm sorry about the wait for teh epilogue. But I was doing another contest and time got away from me and yeah. But here it is and I hope that you enjoy it.
Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight.
I sat in the passenger seat reading My Sister's Keeper, well, trying would be more exact. I kept reading the same sentence over and over again. I'm pretty sure I've read it about thirty times, if not more.
I started to read so that I wouldn't b thinking about how nervous I was that Edward was driving us to school. But it wasn't just that, it was mostly that I was afraid of all the comments and stares that we might get. Secretly I had my fingers crossed that we could get into school and what not without anyone really noticing us.
"Are you trying to memorize that page?" Edward asked breaking me out of my little bubble of worry.
"What? Um no, I'm just thinking," I mumbled closing the book.
He smiled over at me as he stopped at a stop sign. Taking my hand in his he gently grazed his lips across the knuckles, making me swoon inside. Looking up at me with those emerald eyes, I saw that crooked smile form on his lips.
"Everything will be fine, love. I'll be by your side the whole time…that is until we have to separate for class. But I promise to be there right after to pick you up and walk you to your next class."
"Promise," he smiled keeping my hand in his as he finished the short drive to the school.
I smiled trying to relax the closer we got to school. Though the only thing that was keeping me from running away, from possibly being the center of attention today, was the amazing man beside me.
One last deep breath we pulled into the parking lot and he parked in his usual spot. I could feel the eyes on the car. I started to feel the butterflies become huge moths in my stomach. Trying to control my breathing I held on tighter to Edward's hand and was probably about to break it.
"Bella," he said softly turning my face to his and placing his hand on the side of my face softly rubbing my cheek. "It'll be okay."
I just nodded before he kissed me making me forget about everything, even for the smallest amount of time. Sliding my hands into his hair the kiss started to become more heated by the second. But sadly we both knew we had to eventually do this, and we had to go through everyone staring at us. Which I was still hoping wasn't going to happen.
"Let's do this," he smiled kissing my forehead before getting out grabbing his bag from the backseat and came to open my door.
Now or never, I thought to myself as I stuffed my book into my backpack and nervously stepped out of the car.
"Where the hell is she?" I asked aggravated.
"Calm down, she probably just slept in," Jasper said trying to calm me down. But that just wasn't going to work. I knew she went somewhere with Edward and if it was left up to me I would've been over her house waiting for her to come home so I could get all the details right then and there. But no, everyone kept telling me that I should give her some space and what not.
Screw space, I want details on the two people that I knew would be together. I knew it from the first day she came here and Edward looked at her like she was the only girl in the state. And he's been looking at him ever since then.
"Look there's Edward car," Rose pointed with her nail file.
I was about to run over but Jasper had to wrap his arms around me and hold me close right at that second. We both knew he was just trying to keep from running over there, and seeing if Bella was with him.
I stood there bouncing on the balls of my feet waiting for him or them to come out of the car. After what felt like forever, Edward finally came out of the car. But instead of walking towards the school he headed towards the other side. I almost couldn't contain my excitement as I saw long mahogany hair cover the face of the person he was helping out.
"Oh my God Bella and Edward are together!" Emmett voice boomed out followed by a smack in the head from Rose. If all eyes weren't on them before, now they were. And even from a distance you could see Bella's blush.
Edward taking her hand, probably so she would calm down a bit as well as walk towards the school. Smiling he kissed the back of her hand making her turn completely red. Turning both their stared to the sea of students and probably some faculty staring at them, they looked uncertain about what to expect.
Suddenly, the crowd of people erupted into cheers. And finally Jasper let me go and I ran over to them squealing and hugging Bella tightly.
"I need details right now! And if not now I'm stealing you away after school and you, Rose and I are going to talk about what you did yesterday with Edward. And Edward can hang out with the guys if he wants. I mean because we're all probably going to hang out more since we're all together."
"Alice let them get to class," Jasper said placing a calming hand on my shoulder and kissing me, effectively shutting me up.
Once Jasper had Alice quiet and occupied we escaped and made our way into the school. Thankfully after the cheers died down most people went back to whatever they were dong before.
We went to both our lockers hand in hand. And I was scared that the blush on Bella's cheek was going to end up being permanent with how much she was blushing today.
"I'll be here after class," I promised again smiling at her.
"Promise," I told her pulling her to me hugging her tightly and kissing her cheek. "I'll always be here for you. And I also intend to always be with you."
"Good," she mumbled still shy and embarrassed from earlier as she made her way into the classroom. I watched her make her way towards her seat before I rushed to my own class not being able to wipe the smile off my face.
I sat there through class smiling and thinking about the future. Well, the future I was hoping to have with Bella. And how so many things changed quickly, all because I took a chance and kissed the girl.
So another one of my stories is over and now I'm trying to think of which one in my lis of ideas should I do next in a review. So if you want to see me write one for a certain couple or perso then let me know, because I want to see who you all want to read about.
If you also want, my entry (though I'm not sure if it's accepted because of some difficulties following the rules) for the Love or Life contest is posted on here. It's called 3 Days Humanity. And it's a Rose story. And if you read it I hope that you enjoy it.
I also hoped you enjoyed this story as well. And that you all have a great weekend.
