I do not own Twilight ~ Stephanie Meyers is the owner. This is just fan fiction.

This is no longer beta'd…if you can't handle that then please don't read…and remember this is a story, NOT real life.

CH 9 Bearing My Soul

"Edward, I...ummm," Rosalie stutters trying to find the right words.

"Please don't say anything. I just wanted you to know how I feel." Edward sighs relieved he got that off his chest but worried that Rosalie might turn him down. To change the subject and give her time to digest what he said he asks, "So, Rosalie. Why did you want to be a teacher?"

Rosalie can't help but laugh, thankful he broke the awkwardness. She wants to tell him how she feels, but is afraid of being hurt again. "Well, I actually wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. I would line up my stuffed animals on my bed and pretend to teach them. I would read books to them. As I took classes in college I decided I wanted to be an English teacher."

Edward smiles at her revelation, ...

"How about you?" Rosalie asks.

"I didn't know what I wanted to be, but knew I loved all things science. So after I got my bachelors in biology I decided to get my master's degree. I was glad I did, I love teaching kids what I love so much about biology.


The waiter put the bill in front of Edward, but Rosalie tries to grab it.

"No. no." Edward wags his finger at Rosalie. "I am paying for dinner. I asked you out, therefore I pay for you. Besides, what kind of man would I be if I let you pay for your dinner?"

Rosalie just stares at him, not knowing what to say. The things he says and the way he makes her feel is so overwhelming for her.

After Edward has paid and left a tip, he stands and holds out his hand for Rosalie. She puts her hand in his, the feel of his skin on hers is powerfully sexy, perfect.

Edward leads her out of the restaurant. "Let's walk to the movies, it will give us more time together."

Rosalie smiles at him. "I like that." She holds tighter onto his hand. Walking towards them a woman, with a dress two sizes too small, walks by and smiles at Edward. He didn't notice though, he was too busy looking at Rosalie. Rosalie blushes at his intense stare at her.

"What do you want to see? I heard Snow White and the Huntsman is damn good." Edward suggests.

"Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. I'd love to see that."

As they reach the ticket booth, Edward reaches for his wallet. Rosalie steps in front of him and pays.

Edward just stares at her, he's supposed to pay. His look of hurt is evident, but only makes him adorable.

"You paid for dinner, the least I can do is pay for the movie." Rosalie laughs. You can buy by a snack if you want."

Edward follows her to the snack stand and takes another chance to watch her ass move in those clothes. He needs to control himself; he has to be a gentleman.

"Do you want to share a tub of popcorn? I have to warn you, I could devour it all though." Edward smirks at her.

Rosalie smiles and nods at Edward. He is just too good to be true. "That's sounds good and a cherry coke too, please."

Edward looks at the man behind the counter. "Can we have a large popcorn and two large cherry cokes?"

"Sure thing." The guy walks off to get the popcorn and drinks.

"Oh wait, Can I have a Cadbury bar too?"

Rosalie stares at Edward. "I didn't peg you for a Cadbury type of guy."

"I love that chocolate. If you're nice to me, I might share with you." He winks at Rosalie and she blushes again.

Edward gathers the drinks, popcorn and candy and struggles to hold them. Rosalie laughs at him. "Let me carry something."

Edward nods reluctantly giving up one of the sodas and candy bar. "You treat that bar tenderly now, Rosalie."

"Oh don't worry, it's in good hands." She laughs at him and realizes how close she is to his face. She could easily kiss his lips but looks down unsure of herself.

"Let's get a seat," Edward suggests seeing how nervous Rosalie is. He walks beside her into the theater. He lets Rosalie choose an aisle.

She decides to sit in the back in the corner, she always liked sitting in the back when watching a movie. She didn't want any idiots spilling drinks down the aisle or throwing up on her.

Edward sits next to her as they get settled with their refreshments. Edward hands Rosalie some napkins and then puts his arm around her shoulder. He should have asked her if it was okay, but if they share a popcorn it's easier this way.

Rosalie surprises herself by snuggling into his side. She's even more surprised by how comfy and natural it feels to be cuddling with him like this.

As the previews begin, Edward knows he won't really be watching the movie. He's going to focus all his attention on this beauty in next to him.

Suddenly Rosalie looks at him, catching him off guard. "Sorry, Rosalie, I can't help staring at you. You are stunning."

She looks down again, but this time Edward touches her chin and lifts her head to look at him. "I don't expect things to move fast, just believe me when I tell you how I feel. I feel the need to bare my soul you, and only you."

A/N:. WOW! What do you think Rosalie will say back to Edward? Will they finally kiss? Or will she shut him down again?

Yes, I am going to finish this..it will ONLY be on fanfiction though as I can't post anywhere else. It may take me two weeks at a time to update, but I will finish it.
