The next couple of weeks went by in a haze, and nothing seemed right. The table to where we sat each lunch seemed to get tenser in the atmosphere each week, and I'd noticed how Jasper wasn't doing anything to calm anyone of us down. On top of that, Edward and I seemed to grow apart, and I was getting worried.
It was unusually sunny on a Friday morning, which meant that we couldn't go into school (not without exposing our secret anyway). I was furious. Why was Edward ignoring me? It couldn't be his 'homework' as he was a 'whiz-kid' in everything. He knew all the right answers and everything to do with the curriculum, so why the heck was he ignoring me? Had I done something to upset him?
I walked slowly out into the garage, as I knew Emmett would be there – doing something to his jeep no doubt. I needed someone to talk to, to reassure me that I was going crazy. But everything seemed to have gone downhill ever since we freaking started school again. Maybe it would have been better for us if we just didn't go.
"Bells," Emmett greeted me cheerfully. I understood clearly that he liked having me around. "Hey, Em," I replied in a small undertone. Emmett come out from underneath his jeep and gestured me to sit down next to it, "There's something on your mind, isn't there?" He asked me as I willingly sat down on the floor, "Yup," I answered grimly.
"So…? What's wrong?"
I spoke to Emmett for what felt like ages, spilling out everything that was bothering me. Oddly enough, he was listening to me, grasping onto every word I said. "Edward's been ignoring you, and you feel like you've done something wrong?" Emmett concluded finally. "Yup," I answered stupidly, "Funny," He frowned. I looked at him intensely, "What?" I asked, "Rose is the same with me. Edward's in his room now, and I think Rose is there too, something to do with Biology homework. I think it's time we confronted the pair of them about this, don't you?"
I thought about it for a moment, and reluctantly agreed. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to say. It took us a fairly long time to reach Edward's bedroom, and I figured it was because we'd both presumed the worst.
"Wait…" I said, stopping Emmett from opening the door leading to Edward's room. "Maybe we should come back later?"
Emmett chuckled, "Chickened out?"
"Come on Bells, what's the worst that can happen?"
Emmett opened the door at the speed of light, and a loud, hurt cry filled the silence that had etched upon the house. I walked in and was wounded deeply by what I saw. Edward was with Rosalie alright, but they weren't doing Biology homework.
Emmett Cullen POV
My cold dead heart began to ache immensely. I felt like I had been ripped apart. What I had seen with my own eyes practically killed me. Edward and Rosalie, all over each other like they were the last things on Earth, virtually glued to each others faces.
How could they do this? Why would they do this to us, to Bella and me? It wasn't right. What was Bella to Edward, a back up, a second base? The thought of this made me angry. "Get away from her," I hissed venomously. I was beyond furious. I could feel Bella cowering behind me in shock and despair. Edward seemed to acknowledge our presence and stood up. "Step away from my Bella," He snarled, "Your Bella?" I mocked nastily, "She's not your anything! She never will be after this," I growled, indicating the thing going on between him and Rosalie.
Bella Cullen POV
There was nothing left of me as the depression hit me again like a thunder storm. I had always believed that Edward had only thought of Rosalie like a sister. Like a sister! But I guess I was wrong.
I'd always been wrong. It was never me he wanted, it was always her. I was always a toy to him, his back up if things between him and her went wrong.
I was nothing to him, I never had been. I was a fool to kid myself, to believe that he actually loved me. All he ever wanted was Rosalie, and I was nothing.
This is what Alice saw in her vision that day we were in Seattle, and she never told me because she didn't want me getting hurt.
Hey everyone. I hope this chapter is okay. Shocking, right? To hear that Edward was glued to Rosalie's face. Who'd have thought that they were together all along, really?
Please review and tell me what you think! :) xxx
