Bella's Point of View

Damn it, keep running, keep running.

My whole body was sweating, hurting; my lungs felt like they were on fire, but I didn't stop running. The cops were never going to catch me; I'd make sure I'm dead before they are even close to it.

But I was running out of choices here, as I began to run into the streets of Forks, the cops chasing after me, my father leading them.

I spotted a shiny Volvo parked at the gas station with its door open, and without hesitation I ran to it, and jumped onto the floor of the driver's seat, and shut the door breathing heavily.

I could feel I was sitting on someone's feet, and I looked up sheepishly, but then almost gasped as I took in his beauty. He had to be the most gorgeous guy I have ever seen.

He stared down at me in shock.

"Umm hi, please don't say anything please." I begged, and just in time to hear a tap on the guy's window.

I felt him freeze, and roll down his window a little with a smooth smile.

I almost sighed in relief at that smile; he was going to help me.

"Can I help you Chief Swan?" He asked.

"Umm have you seen a girl with brown long hair, big brown eyes?" He asked sounding out of breath.

I smirked at that, when the guy glanced down at me.

"No, I'm afraid I haven't." The guy said, and I heard my father sighed.

"Alright thanks." My father said then he was back, and the guy quickly put his window back up.

"Thanks." I said with a smile up at him.

He nodded slightly at me, just a hint of a smile on his face.

"So can I ask what you have done to get all the cops in Forks after you?" He asked not a bit of fear in his eyes.

That was funny; it was more like what I didn't do.

"Oh it would take me hours to go through down the list, let's just say I ain't an angel."

He nodded at that.

"My name is Bella, Bella Swan." I said putting my hand up at him.

He took it with a laugh.

"Edward Cullen; nice to meet you," He said taking my hand and shaking it, I gasped lowly at how could his hand was, and he pulled away from me with a sorry expression.

"So Edward, can you tell me if there are any cops around out there?"

Edward looked around. "Everywhere,"


"Do you think you could drive me out of here please?" I asked hopeful.

His eyes moved down to me again, a calculating look on his face. I could tell he was deliberating. It really should have been easy, I'm a criminal, if he got caught helping me, he would be considered a criminal.

But as he opened his mouth I got the biggest shock in my life. "Sure." His velvet smooth voice almost made me melt.

This truly surprised me, usually someone would have turned me into the cops, not help me, or was that what he was doing?

I looked deeply into his eyes to see if he was telling the truth, which was a big mistake; because once I looked into his golden orbs I couldn't look away.

He looked down at me. "You can trust me." His tone was hesitantly.

I gave him a nod, and with all the energy I had I looked away from him. Slowly I shifted so he could get to his petals, and watched him.

He was so perfect, had a perfect smile, and well what could I say; I was falling for this guy, this Edward Cullen. I haven't done this for a while, but I'm known as a good flirter, so I guess I could give it a good for old time's sake.

I reached forward, and got a hold of his seat belt, and with careful hands I buckled him in. I was careful not to touch any personal places, I wouldn't go that far just yet, I needed to see how easy this would be.

He looked down at me shivering at me touch.

"Don't forget your seat belt; I don't want you to get in trouble with the law." I spoke, leaning my head towards his crotch slightly, eyeing him suggestively.

I watched as Edward gulped, but gave me a laugh in response.

"Yeah, but driving a wanted criminal won't get me in any trouble." He mused.

I laughed with him.

He had a point.

"Good looking and funny, you have it all don't you." I said grinning up at him.

He looked down at me with a passionate expression, but he quickly hid his emotion, with a sarcastic grin.

"You could say that." He chuckled.

"So where are you taking me?"

"Some where were you will be safe from the cops,"

I beamed at that in excitement. "Were?"

"Home." He said with a simple grin.

Review and tell me what you think of bad ass Bella?
