Day 6 cont.:

I jumped off of Edward, my heart racing, and my face firetruck red.

"We're going to pretend we didn't see anything," Carlisle said, Esme by his side with her hands on her hips. "Now, both of you, back to bed. We won't say anything to your parents, but for the rest of this trip, we're keeping a close eye on you two."

Esme nodded in agreement, but I could see the smirk on her face. I felt the heat on my cheeks blaze, and I quickly walked towards my cabin, eyes down. I would never be able to look Carlisle and Esme in the eyes ever again. I chanced a fleeting glance towards Edward, who was walking in a similar fashion back to his cabin. He glanced up, and sent me an embarrassed, but content smile. I think I melted a little bit.

Luckily, Carlisle and Esme stayed outside for a while, and I was able to compose myself before the sun began to rise. Surprisingly enough, everyone woke up early, so I was able to hide behind everybody whenever I was around Carlisle or Esme. Rosalie and Alice kept sending me strange looks, but I refused to answer any questions right now. I just needed to enjoy the bliss of everything privately for a day.

When time for breakfast came, I kept a steady gaze on the door, waiting for Edward to walk through. It's not like I would run up and kiss him with everybody watching, but when he finally came in, I sure wanted to.

His eyes immediately found me, and the most blush-inducing smile flitted across his lips. He promptly sat down beside me, but didn't say anything. In fact, throughout breakfast, we didn't even turn our heads toward each other, but that didn't stop his leg from bumping against mine, or occasionally bringing his hand under the table to brush mine. I kept myself as composed as possible, knowing Alice, and Rosalie were watching us like hawks.

"So what are we doing today?" Emmett, asked, patting his stomach lovingly after finishing his monstrous breakfast.

"Just wait until we're all settled, Emmett, jeez, " Alice said. "In a couple hours, we can go swimming or something."

Everyone agreed, and left to go find something to do until our stomachs settled. Carlisle silently pointed at Edward and I, who were still sitting, and gestured his warning that he was watching us. He then left the room, and Edward finally turned to me. I was about to say something but he leaned forward and gave me a soft kiss.

"Good morning," he whispered.

"Good morning," I sighed before stealing another chaste kiss. Funny, this morning we couldn't keep our hands off of each other, and now we were being super careful. Everyone was in the other room, anyway.

"So I kind of had something I wanted to ask you," he said. His emerald green eyes looked a bit nervous.

"Yes?"

"Are you my...I mean, will you be my girlfriend?" He asked, voice shaking a bit. I couldn't help the smile on my face. How did we go from arguing on a frequent basis, to these soft spoken conversations?

"Hmm," I said, pretending to think about it. Edward's eyes narrowed playfully. "Are you going to keep annoying me?"

"Of course," Edward snickered, bumping his shoulder into mine.

"Well then, how could I refuse?" I answered, tangling my hand in his hair and bringing him in to kiss me.

First day of senior year:

"Well, hello there, Mr. Annoying-jerk-who-decided-to-scare-the-crap-out-of-me-last night!" I seethed as I got out of my truck and walked towards Edward who was smirking next to his stupid silver Volvo.

"I don't know what you're talking about," He said smoothly, but that stupid smirk on his stupid pretty face gave him away.

"Really? So you don't know anything about some creeper outside my bedroom window last night who was tapping on my window, and then left in some shiny silver car?" I challenged.

He only smiled. The other students were walking by without noticing a thing. Edward and I arguing was nothing new. In fact, it was still a daily thing that happened between the two of us, but that's the way I liked it.

I swiftly turned around and began walking towards school. I could hear Edward's footsteps following me.

"Come on, Bella," he chided. I kept walking.

"Don't make me force it out of you," he taunted. I said nothing. Before I could react, his hand encircled my wrist and he pulled me back to him. His lips landed on mine, and I felt myself smile a bit.

A collective gasp sounded around us, and I knew kids were staring. I could just hear their thoughts. Edward and Bella? I thought they hated each other? I guess not anymore.

"You're still an annoying jerk," I mumbled against Edward's lips.

"I know," he answered.

"Ew, can you guys stop making out. That's all you've done since the end of our trip. Don't you guys ever take a break to catch your breath?" Emmett teased, walking up with the rest of the group. Everyone rolled their eyes, and cracked jokes at the shocked faces of our fellow students around them. They had had time to get used to the idea of Edward and me, but it looks like everyone in school would be dying to figure out what happened by the end of the day.

"Come on," I said, rolling my eyes and dragging Edward behind me.

"Yes ma'am," He said, falling in step beside me. He walked me to my first class, ignoring all of the confused looks around us. Heck, I was confused for the longest of time, now it's their turn to be confused.

"So, meet you in the storage closet in an hour," Edward joked, smiling suggestively. I laughed, and pushed him away from me.

"Don't be like Emmett," I said, but I was kind of craving some alone time. Everybody had been keeping a watch on us like a hawk. They were convinced that all of the tension over the years between Edward and I would explode, and we might do something drastic that nobody wanted to know about. I was starting to become convinced of this theory, especially since my hands were itching for the kind of contact Edward and I had had on the last nights of our vacation. Once we got home, we were never alone.

"I'll see you later," Edward said sweetly, kissing the corner of my mouth.

I narrowed my eyes, signaling my unhappiness with that move. Edward laughed, then leaned in for a better goodbye. I entered the classroom, feeling a little dizzy from our kiss. Maybe I should try and find out where the janitor's closet is.

I laughed to myself, shaking my head. Looks like I was done with the confusing part of our relationship. Let's see if I can survive the teenage hormonal side of it.

Uhg, I hate endings. If you've read any of my other stories, you know how bad I am with them. Anyway, yay, it's finally done! It sucks, because I wanted this to be a strict summer fanfiction, but I'm just now finishing it in October. Oh well. Maybe I'll try my hands at some holiday inspired one-shots. You know, I should be focusing on college applications, instead. Lol.

Anyway, thanks for reading everybody! Have any suggestions for me. Should I revise this for a different ending? Thanks for everybody's participation, I love you guys!

By the way, reviews are always welcome, even if it's five years after this has been uploaded!
