AN: Hey guys, its been a while, I know, but I said it before; I'm in my final year and in a little over six weeks my exams start. It's just been very hectic and I know I'm taking forever to post, but I just hope you'll stick with me.
Five minutes before the bell went, I said my goodbyes to Jessica and Angela and hurried to Biology II. I was one of the first and Edward wasn't there yet. I got a paper and a pencil out of my bag and started drawing. I drew the forest with the bonfire as I remembered it from last night. I let the fire illuminate the darkness of the forest and then fed the drawing it's details; the cracks in the trees, the black, burning leaves of the grass and even a small burning flower in the ever growing fire. It seemed as if I was bringing the fire to life.
"You draw beautifully," a low voice said.
I was so occupied with drawing, that I didn't even notice him coming into the classroom or even taking place beside me. I was startled and looked at Edward Cullen. "You think so?" I asked.
He nodded. "Yes, I think so. And I'm sorry I startled you," he said softly.
"Oh," I whispered. "That's okay. And thank you." I wrote under the drawing 'Because you deserved it' and my name and then gave it to him. The sentence had a double meaning. For the vampires who were unseeingly being burned in the fire and the drawing for Edward, because he liked it and I hated him for no reason.
He looked at me. "Thank you."
The bell rang and the lesson started.
Halfway through the lesson, Edward put a paper in front of me.
'Will you sit with me and my family during lunch tomorrow?'
I smiled and scribbled on the paper.
'Do you want me to sit with you and your family during lunch tomorrow?'
I gave the paper back and he smiled as he read it. Then he wrote something down again and pushed the paper back to me.
'I do. But I think I'm not the one who wants it the most.'
'Let me guess. Alice?'
'Yes, but how did you know that?'
'That's just readable from everything she does. She looks like an energy bunny.'
'Yeah, I think that's right. But will you? Sit with us?'
I smiled at him.
As the day ended, I went to my locker to put my bag with my books in it, so I could just walk into the forest without anything keeping me from the freedom. I stretched and yawned, which made me realize I'd had a long night. I turned around and crashed into someone, who had been standing behind me.
"I'm sorry…" I looked up at the person. "Oh, hey Edward."
"What are those?" he asked, pointing at my back.
Immediately I felt at my back. I felt the hem of my shirt had ridden up somewhat, probably from my stretching, and I felt my wings in the skin that was exposed. I quickly pulled my shirt back down.
"It's a tattoo," I said.
"What are they like?" he asked curiously.
"Wings. Red wings with green decorations. They stand for my family. I lost them long ago." That could be true. If I could have a tattoo at all, I would have a tattoo for my family.
"That's very tough, to lose your family like that. I'm sorry for your loss."
"I lived through it," I said. "The tattoo takes up all of my back and it took more than two appointments to finish it."
I nodded and then sighed, relieved, secretly glad he bought it. "Was there something you wanted to ask before, Edward?" I asked.
"Oh yeah! I just wondered if you wanted a ride. I noticed you always disappeared into the forest and er… I just wanted to bring you home safely."
I smiled. "That's very generous, but I think I have to pass. I live not very far from here and you can't reach it by car."
"Oh, than would you allow me to walk with you?"
"Well… I…" I desperately tried to come with way to save myself.
"Please?" he pleaded.
