"So if you divide the equation times itself then what does x equal?" Edward quizzed me as we pulled into the school parking lot. I sighed and jumped out of the car; fed up with his constant nagging. I had heard nothing but math equations spill from his lips for the last few days and I was sick of it. And it was all because of the dreaded midterms that were taking place today; everyone was completely freaking out.
"Um I don't know… 1,248?" I guessed with a slight smile.
Edward rolled his eyes and sighed frustrated and not at all finding my nonchalant attitude amusing. "No, honestly, Bella, did you even study at all? We have the test next period and―"
"Yes of course I studied!" I replied hastily, cutting him off.
"Really?" He asked skeptically.
"Yes, I specifically remember opening my math book and using it as a table for my popcorn, while watching those reruns of American Idol." I informed him with a smile as I stepped out of the car.
"Bella, you need to understand this. I know math is not your best subject but―"
"I'll do fine; stop worrying!" I nearly yelled at him. After all the things I've been through: Evil sadistic Vampires that want to kill me for fun, the creepy Italian Vampires who were set out to make sure that I became a vampire or died, and then that army of newborns that wanted to kill me; you would think that school would be the last thing a person like me should be worrying about.
"You should be stressing out over this, it's a midterm, Isabella; it determines whether you pass or fail for the year. You need to ask me for help if you're struggling." Edward pleaded.
"Don't worry. Once I'm a vampire I won't need to know all of this stupid math stuff anyway." Edward ignored my comment and did his best to put on a smile. He kissed me on the cheek before going off to his class. I walked inside my math class and said a quick hello to Angela before being barked at by the teacher for taking.
I sat down at my desk and took out a book to read to pass the time. As soon as the bell rang and the students shuffled in, Mr. Varner started giving his midterm speech.
"…There will be absolutely no cheating, no use of cell phones or talking. I expect each of you to take this seriously..."
I tuned in and out of his speech, only caring about the part when he actually told us to begin. I flipped open the test booklet and skimmed over at the first page. I stared at the page and read the question over and over again, and I couldn't think of an answer to save my life.
This was not good.
Come on Bella think I screamed at myself. It took me nearly forever but I finally figured out that the answer to number 1 was B. I smiled to myself, pleased with my accomplishment. I began to move onto the next question, when Mr. Varner spoke.
"Only half an hour left, guys." He informed us. My eyes widened as I flipped through the packet, seeing that I had a long way to go. I gave up, and decided to just circle random letters. There was no way I could finish this in time.
A few minutes later the bell rang, signaling that it was time to go. I got up and dropped off the test at the front desk, trying to think of what I would say to Edward. He would no doubt be disappointed when he saw my grade; unless I hid it from him of course.
I smirked to myself. As soon as the test was handed back I would discard it, throw it away, light it on fire; anything to get rid of it. Edward would never see it and no one would be the wiser.
"How'd you do?" Edward asked as soon as I stepped out of the room. I gave him a smile and told him that I did fine.
"I knew you would." He replied with a grin. I smiled, doing my best to hide my guilt ridden expression.
(One week later)
Today they were handing back the midterms. I was literally going to die. I was scared to even peek at my grade when it was handed back to me. It fell onto my desk with a thud and I shut my eyes instantly fearing the worst.
"Bella, what'd you get?" Angela asked eagerly. I glanced over at her and told her I got an 80, knowing that I sure as hell hadn't.
When I finally mustered up enough courage I sneaked a quick glance at it.
I had gotten a 37 out of a 200 point test... Hell even Mike Newton had probably gotten a higher grade than me. I groaned and rested my head on the desk. I had no idea how I was going to succeed in hiding this. Charlie would be the easiest. He barely looked at my report cards let alone my test grades. But on the other hand, it would be a complete miracle if Edward never found out. He could tell if I was lying immediately by my blush and Alice could see my every decision. My foolproof plan had seemed so perfect a few days ago, but now I came to realize how tricky this hiding business was going to be.
We were told to open our math books and to begin taking notes; I did so sulkily and crumpled up my disgrace of a test and shoving it into my bag. The minutes passed by rather quickly and before I knew it it was time to go. I grabbed my bag and stood up but that was when Mr. Varner called me.
"Isabella, can I see you for a moment?" He asked.
I gritted my teeth seriously thinking about saying 'no'. But I sighed and went up to him already knowing what he was about to say. He peered at me through his thick, oval rimmed glasses with a disappointed expression on his face. "Isabella, I'm concerned about your midterm grade. This is not like you. Is there something troubling you?"
Yes. There is indeed.
Well Mr. Varner my boyfriend, no wait excuse me, my fiancé is a vampire and I'm going to marry him after graduation so I can become a vampire and live happily ever after with him except there's this guy named Jacob, who's a werewolf AKA Edward's enemy, and he's in love with me but I have no feelings for him. Oh and did I mention that there's an army of newborns that want to kill me? Yeah I didn't think so.
But seeing as there was no way in Hell that I could divulge that particular tale, I settled on a murmured 'no'; he continued on with his lecture about how math was important and that this test would most definitely affect my grade.
I listened impatiently, praying to God that Edward wasn't hearing this. When he was finished with his lecture I dashed out the room and looked around frantically, only sighing in relief when Edward was nowhere to be found.
The cards were defiantly in my favor today.
I muddled through all of my classes, not really paying attention. I was grateful when school was over and I almost ran all the way to my car. As I started the engine I noticed a piece of paper on the windshield. I grabbed it, already knowing who it was from.
I had to leave school early to go hunting. I'll be back shortly. Stay safe. That means not going to the reservation and absolutely NO visiting those dogs.
I love you, see you soon.
I smiled to myself, and tucked the note away. This was perfect I would get rid of my midterm without Edward ever having to know.
As I pulled into my driveway, stepped out of the car and ran inside my house. I threw my bag down on my bed and turned it upside down, searching for my test frantically.
"Bella, can I talk to you for a second?" Charlie asked.
I groaned wondering why everyone wanted to speak with me today, as if this day wasn't bad enough. I told him I was coming and ran down the stairs. I looked over at Charlie as he was sitting in front of the TV, a beer in hand, watching a hockey game studiously.
"I got a call from your math teacher today. He told me that he was worried about you because you had failed some important test. Now you know that I'm not going to preach to you about your grades, because you're a good student in school, but I can't help but think that spending all of your time with Edward has something to do with this."
I swear to God that when I become a newborn the first thing that I'll do is pay a visit to Mr. Varner and 'accidentally' slip up. I forced a smile on my face to reassure Charlie. "Dad, don't worry. It's just one bad grade, I promise that I'll try to study more and see Edward less." I told him, knowing that the Edward part would surly put him at ease.
He was pleased by my statement and I made my way over to the kitchen to start making the leftover lasagna that we had yesterday. Setting it in the oven I ran up the steps and into my room. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw Edward climbing inside my window.
"Geez have you ever heard of a door? You know that I'm opposed to your sneaking in through the window? And what are you doing here anyway? You're supposed to be hunting?"
Edward looked over at me curiously bemused. "Bella, are you alright?" He asked suspiciously. I nodded my head and sat down on the bed, next to him.
"I missed you; that's all." I said, wrapping my arms around him, pulling him into a tight hug. I quickly kicked my backpack off the bed and shoved in underneath the bed with my foot.
"So, how was school today?" Edward asked. I bit my lip; hoping that he hadn't head Charlie and my conversation.
"Fine." I murmured.
"And did they hand back the midterms yet?" He asked.
I felt my heart beat quicken and I looked up at the ceiling, avoiding his gaze. "No, he weren't finished correcting them yet." I lied, hoping that it would sound a least a little bit convincing.
"Really?" Edward asked, studying my face intently. I nodded my head yes.
Edward suppressed a sigh, "don't lie to me, Bella." He snapped.
"I'm not lying to you, Edward. I―"
"Then what is your math test doing here?" He asked, holding up my failing grade.
