Okay! This is actually a birthday present for my friend Roma! If you had read my story 'Real Vampires' you would see that I used her name. The character Roma Elliott in 'Real vampires' is exactly the same as Roma is real life lol. Happy 14th birthday!
I stood on the cliff. I want the pain to end. That was the only thought that was going through my mind. I briefly thought about my parents, then Jake. But more pain stabbed at my heart as I remembered Jacob left me too. And my parents would be better off without me. I lifted my head to the rain. "I'm sorry" I whispered, before I flung myself off the cliff. I thought I heard someone, but everything –other than the storm that was now brewing- was drowned out by my scream.
I hit the icy-cold water with a splash. I started to sink, and I didn't fight it. I let the current push and pull me. I felt my back against something hard. The rocks. I thought wistfully. My head bashed against the rocks and blackness took over. Good bye was my last thought.
"Breath!" I heard someone say, I felt pounding against my chest. I sputtered up some water, my throat was dry and sore and my head was throbbing. I slowly opened my eyes, my vision was blotchy, but it soon cleared and I saw a man looking down at me. He had a strong set jaw and square face and crystal blue eyes. "Breath, its okay" he said and helped my sit up. I coughed some more and whispered out "Who are you?"
"My name is Anthony, but everyone calls me Tony" he said. I nodded and started to shake, it was so cold. "Here" Tony said handing me his jacket, I gratefully took it.
"I'm Bella" I whispered.
"What were you doing up on the cliff?" he asked, I gave him a look that said that's a personal question.
He nodded and helped me up "I'll drive you home" he offered and I nodded
"Thank you," I said, "For driving me and saving me" I clarified.
"When I heard you scream, I wasn't about to let you die" he said,
"This yours?" he said gesturing to my truck, I nodded handing him the keys. He helped me into the cab and as soon as he started the truck I turned the heat on.
"Are you new in town?" I asked stupidly after 3 minutes of silence.
"Yes, my sister and I moved in 4 days ago. We live just outside of Forks." He said.
"Oh, cool" I said pulled my arms closer to my chest, trying to warm myself.
"Are you going to tell me what you were doing on that cliff? I know it's not really my business but I feel like I should help you" he said.
I sighed "I just want it to end" I said, hoping he would drop it.
"What would end?"
"The pain. Life." I said simply.
"What happened to you?" he whispered, looking at me, I realised he had stopped on the side of the road.
"I don't think you need to know" I said, I couldn't tell anyone about what really happened. All I could say is that my high school boyfriend left me. To everyone else I'm just an overactive teenager.
"I'm sorry if I'm being pushy, you just look so sad. Broken" he whispered the last word. I don't think I was meant to hear it. "I am broken" I whispered to myself.
"Where do I go?" he asked, I gave him the directions. He parked the truck.
"How are you going to get home?" I asked,
"Don't worry about me; I can get home from here. Just can you call me tomorrow?" he asked he found a pen and an old napkin on the floor and wrote his number down. I nodded "Sure" I said and we both got out of the truck "Be safe" he said and started to walk in the direction of the highway. My heart panged with hurt as I remembered the two words he wrote to me that day. I quickly went inside. I had a long bubble bath and went to sleep.
I woke up and slowly stood up, I grabbed some throat lozenges. I walked down stairs and slowly made some porridge I put Honey on it and ate it slowly. Then I remembered last night. I tear slid down my face as I remembered I'd have to live with the pain still. I looked up at the clock and I saw it was almost 12 o'clock. I said I'd call so I will.
I found the napkin and dialled the number "Hello?" A girl picked up.
"Uhm . . . . It's Bella . . . . . could I speak with Tony?" I asked. I heard a tinkling laugh then heard her yell "TONY! THERE'S A GIRL ON THE PHONE ASKING FOR YOU!" then much quieter, "He's coming."
I waited for about 10 seconds then I heard "Bella?"
"Yeah," I said, not sure what to say,
"How are you feeling?" he asked,
"Good, a bit sore, but good."
"Can I come over, I need to hide from my sister," he whispered into the phone, I laughed, I really laughed, "Sure, see you soon?"
"Yeah, see ya" he said and hung up. I hung up the phone and cleaned the dishes. After I had put everything away I heard the knock on the door. I wiped my hands and opened the door.
"Hey, can I come in?" he asked, I nodded and moved aside. He stepped inside.
"Why are you hiding from your sister?" I asked
"She wants me to help her decorate the new house." He said shaking his head.
"So is it just you and your sister?" I asked
"Yes, my parents died two years ago" he said in a sad voice.
"Oh my god! I'm so sorry" I said putting a hand on his arm. He smiled "It's okay, it was two years ago." He said, "Are we just gonna stand in the hallway?" he asked jokingly. I blushed and shook my head "this way," I said, we sat down in the living room.
"Why don't you want to decorate the new house?" I asked smiling.
"My sister, plus a new house. It's scary." He explained. I laughed and he smiled at me.
We talked all day. "Well I should get going." He said standing up and stretching, the large muscles in his arms rippling.
"Bye" I said,
"Bye, maybe I'll see you tomorrow?" he asked.
I smiled "Sure."
I walked him to the door and he started to walk off. Still no car.
Anthony, I didn't know his last name. I barely knew anything about him. And yet, he's so captivating.
Okay! What did you think?
