Chapter 20 The Truth

"Please," I heard him again. I looked up and saw that something was different about him. It wasn't the same arrogant asshole that I saw last night. Instead there was something behind those eyes of his and it made me melt.

"What do you want," I said.

"Please," he said taking another step towards me. "I just want to talk to you."

"How did you find this place," I asked. Truth be told I wanted to talk to him. I just didn't know if I could forgive him for the things that he has done.

"My family spends a lot of time hiking and camping," he started to say. I knew that, I discovered that everything basically shuts down when they leave. "We passed here once and I come by when I need time to think."

"What do you want to talk about," I asked.

"I'm sorry," he said. Did he just say that? "I'm sorry for treating you horribly this week. You didn't deserve any of it."

"I just don't understand why," I responded.

"Why," he asked questioningly. "What do you mean by why?"

"Why is it that one minute your saving me," I started to say but stopped to take a deep breath. "The next minute you're a pompous ass who likes to hurt me at all costs."

"That's not true," he said pissed.

"Then what is it," I said getting pissed off at him. He didn't say anything at all to me. I was not going to do this not today. He wasn't going to hurt me anymore. I stood there for another second before walking off. I was walking past him when I felt him grab my arm.

He jerked me towards him and stared at my face. After a second I felt his lips on mine. They were soft, gentle and full of passion. I didn't know how to respond except dropping my things. After my hands were free of the blanket and jacket I wove my fingers into his hair and his arms around my waist. I met his lips, kissing him back with as much passion he showed me.

"Wait," he said pulling back. What the hell just happened?

"I'm sorry," I said backing away.

"Don't be sorry," he said. "The truth is."

"What's the truth," I asked. "Why do you enjoy hurting me?"

"I don't enjoy it," he said. "It kills me every time I have hurt you this week."

"Why do it," I asked. I was still trying to get over the kiss. I couldn't believe that he kissed me. I've never been kissed like that before. There was so much electricity in it, and I didn't want it to end.

"I'm afraid that you will hate me when you know the truth," he said turning around so that I couldn't see his face.

"The cold ones," I said to myself. Like I told myself before I wanted to take the plunge with Edward. "I'm not scared of you."

"You should be," he answered me back still facing the opposite direction. "How do you know about the cold ones?"

"An old family friend told me," I said walking towards him. When I got close enough I placed my hand on his arm. "I'm not going anywhere."

"I'm dangerous," he said looking down at my hand on his arm. "You're blood is so sweet that I have tried to keep you alive. That's why I have hurt you so much this week. I never wanted to do any of it, but I had to control myself from killing you."

"I see," I answered him.

"My family only feeds on animals," he said without me asking. I wanted to know how they fed themselves. What they ate? He just came out and told me and it surprised me.

"I'm still not going anywhere," I said walking around to face him.

"Promise me something," he said taking both my hands into his.

"Okay," I answered quickly. After giving my answer I wanted to take it back because I was afraid of what I just agreed too.

"Don't leave," he said letting one of my hands go and cupping my face in it.

"I won't," I said looking into his eyes and getting lost. My heart was beating a thousand miles and hour and I had butterflies in my stomach.

"I have one more thing to tell you," he said placing his forehead on mine.

"I'm not leaving," I said reassuring.

"I love you Bella," he said. I took a deep breath before looking into his eyes again. All of my hate for him evaporated within seconds. "I realized it the second I walked out of the pharmacy on Monday afternoon."

"Edward," I said. How I wanted to kiss him again. How I wished to be in his arms and never leave them.

"I just don't want to hurt you," he said dropping his hand from my face. He turned and walked away from me.

"That's for me to decide no you," I told him. "I have my own reasoning's as well. Did you ever think about that?"

"No," he said stopping and looking at me.

What was I doing? Was I finally going to tell him. I took a deep breath and took the plunge.

"I'm in love with you," I said to him. I watched as his face showed a sigh of happiness across it. "The first time I saw you when I walked into the pharmacy. I knew there was something different about you."

"Bella," he said turning away from me.

"Let me finish," I pleaded and walked towards him. "I have never felt anything like this before. More importantly I have never felt anything like this for another person. I don't care what or who you are. I'm not leaving."

"You don't care that I'm a soulless monster," he said still facing away from me.

"First of all you do have a soul," I said walking to face him. "So get over it."

Before I could say anything else, he swept me off my feet, and into his arms.

"My Bella," he said bringing me into an embrace.

It felt so good to be in his arms. How I have dreamt of this moment all week. I wrapped my arms around his neck and welcomed his embrace. I had never felt so safe.

"Please tell me," I said looking into his amber eyes. "That I'm not dreaming, and this is all real. That you're here with me right now."

"You're not dreaming," he whispered into my ear. "I'm right here with you and I'm not going anywhere."

He lowered his lips to mine, and I welcomed it this time at first chance. His scent was heaven and I melted in his arms. He pulled away from my lips looking up at the sky.

"Let's stay here a little longer," he said. "If that is okay with you, of course."

"Okay," I said when he put me down.

I went over to were I dropped the blanket and picked it up. I brought it back over to him and he spread it over the grass once again. When he sat down I laid down on the blanket looking up at the sky. Before I knew it he was laying down beside me and I moved myself closer to him. Taking my hand he intertwined it with his. His hands were cold in mine, but I didn't care. I curled up to him closer and put my head on his chest leaving our hands together. I wanted to stay like this forever.

"I love you, Bella," he said bringing our hands to his lips. He softly kissed my hand before placing them back on his stomach.

"I love you too, Edward," I said trying hard not to blush.

"Please," I begged her again. I looked at her basically begging for her to listen to me.

"What do you want," she said.

"Please," I said taking another step towards her. "I just want to talk to you."

"How did you find this place," she asked. Truth be told that Esme told me, but I had to think of lie to tell her.

"My family spends a lot of time hiking and camping," I started to say. I knew that, it was a long shot of a lie. I just hoped that she would but it. "We passed here once and I come by when I need time to think."

"What do you want to talk about," she asked. She bought it and I took a breath knowing that her scent would kill me. I had been keeping my thirst under control so I knew that I could handle it.

"I'm sorry," I said. "I'm sorry for treating you horribly this week. You didn't deserve any of it."

"I just don't understand why," she responded.

"Why," I asked questioningly. Wasn't this good enough for her. "What do you mean by why?"

"Why is it that one minute your saving me," she started to say but stopped to take a deep breath. "The next minute you're a pompous ass who likes to hurt me at all costs."

"That's not true," I said pissed at her now.

"Then what is it," she said getting pissed off towards me. I didn't say anything at all to her. What was I going to say to her? The truth might be a good place to start. I saw her walking towards me as if she was leaving. She wasn't getting away this time. When she got closer to me I grabbed her arm.

I jerked her towards me and stared at her face into her melting eyes. What the hell! I have wanted to kiss her for so long why wait any longer. A second later I lowered my lips to hers and kissed her. They were soft, gentle and warm. This was everything that I thought about when it came to kissing her. I didn't know how she would respond to this. The next thing I felt were her fingers weaving themselves into my hair. I in return wrapped my arms around her waist. She met my lips, kissing me back with as much passion as I was showing her.

"Wait," I said pulling back. I didn't want to loose control this was new to me, and I didn't want to hurt her.

"I'm sorry," she said backing away.

"Don't be sorry," I said. "The truth is."

"What's the truth," she asked. "Why do you enjoy hurting me?"

"I don't enjoy it," I said looking at her. "It kills me every time I have hurt you this week."

"Why do it," she asked. I was still trying to get over the kiss. I couldn't believe that I had kissed her. There was so much electricity in it, and I didn't want it to end.

"I'm afraid that you will hate me when you know the truth," I said turning around so that she couldn't see my face.

"The cold ones," I heard her say. How in the hell did she know? "I'm not scared of you."

"You should be," I answered her with my back still facing her direction. "How do you know about the cold ones?"

"An old family friend told me," I said. The next thing I know I feel her hand touching my arm. "I'm not going anywhere."

"I'm dangerous," I said looking down at her hand on my arm. "You're blood is so sweet that I have tried to keep you alive. That's why I have hurt you so much this week. I never wanted to do any of it, but I had to control myself from killing you."

"I see," she answered me.

"My family only feeds on animals," I said without her asking. I her to know the truth about my family. I wanted her to know that we would never hurt her. Of course I would probably have to hurt some of my family members. One blonde bitch to be specific about.

"I'm still not going anywhere," she said walking around to face me.

"Promise me something," I said taking both of her hands into mine.

"Okay," she answered quickly. I needed her to promise me one thing, and one thing only.

"Don't leave," I said letting one of her hands go and cupping her face in it.

"I won't," she said looking into my eyes. I felt a wave of emotion come over me at that moment.

"I have one more thing to tell you," I said placing my forehead on hers.

"I'm not leaving," she said reassuring.

"I love you Bella," I said. It felt so good to say it a loud. Now her comes the part where go leaves running and screaming. "I realized it the second I walked out of the pharmacy on Monday afternoon."

"Edward," she said. How I wished for her to be in my arms and never leave them.

"I just don't want to hurt you," I said dropping my hand from her face. I turned and walked away from her

"That's for me to decide no you," she told me. "I have my own reasoning's as well. Did you ever think about that?"

"No," I said stopping and looking at her. What could her reasons be? There was no way in hell that she loved me in return. I could've just made the biggest ass of myself just now.

"I'm in love with you," she said to me. She what. She's in love with me. I had a feeling of happiness wash over me then. "The first time I saw you when I walked into the pharmacy. I knew there was something different about you."

"Bella," I said turning away from her. I needed to hear more from her.

"Let me finish," she pleaded. "I have never felt anything like this before. More importantly I have never felt anything like this for another person. I don't care what or who you are. I'm not leaving."

"You don't care that I'm a soulless monster," I said still facing away from her with a smile on my face..

"First of all you do have a soul," she said walking to face me. "So get over it."

Before she could say anything else, I swept her off of her feet, and into my arms.

"My Bella," I said bringing her into an embrace closer to me.

It felt so good to have her in my arms. How I have dreamt of this moment all week. I wrapped my arms around her waist and held her closer to me. I had never felt so safe almost as if this was meant to be.

"Please tell me," she said looking me. "That I'm not dreaming, and this is all real. That you're here with me right now."

"You're not dreaming," I whispered into her ear. "I'm right here with you and I'm not going anywhere."

I lowered my lips to hers, and was met this time and it was perfect. Her scent swam all around me and I could feel her melt in my arms almost as if we were one. I pulled my lips from hers and looked up into the sky.

"Let's stay here a little longer," i said. "If that is okay with you, of course."

"Okay," she said when I put her down.

She went over to were she dropped the blanket and picked it up. When she brought it back over to me and I spread it over the grass once again. I sat down and she laid down on the blanket looking up at the sky. I decided that I wanted to be closer to her so I laid down beside her and she moved myself closer to me. I took her hand and intertwined it with mine. Her hands were warm, and soft and I didn't want to let them go. She curled up to closer me and put her head on my chest leaving our hands together. I wanted to stay like this forever with her.

"I love you, Bella," I said bringing our hands to my lips. I softly kissed her hand before placing them back on my stomach.

"I love you too, Edward," I heard her say.
