Song: Skylar Grey - Invisible
The room was silent; the only sound I could hear was my rapidly beating heart as it pounded furiously in my chest, stunned at the newest revelation.
The silence was deafening. I need an escape.
A set of emerald green eyes caught my chocolate brown ones, halting my thoughts of a possible escape. The eyes held me, piercing me with their anger as if I was to blame for our current predicament. I turned away, taken aback at the shift in the once calm atmosphere. What was only a minutes silence began to feel long and torturous.
A furious voice broke the silence. "Please tell me this is your idea of a joke!" My eyes snapped in the direction of the voice; bronze tousled hair, a chiselled jaw, strong defined cheekbones and the familiar set of green eyes. Edward Cullen. His lips curled in to a snarl, his anger evident on his face and in his voice. His gaze planted firmly on his father, Carlisle Cullen.
Even in his terminally ill condition, Carlisle manages to possess an authority not to be messed with. Carlisle shifts his gaze towards my father - Charles Swan, sitting beside him and gives him a knowing look before turning back and addressing his son. Something in the way he looks at my father tells me my dad knew of this prior to this evening.
"Does it look like I'm joking?" Carlisle asks sharply, raising his eyebrow in question and watching Edwards eyes turn wide, just like my own.
Edward clenched his eyes closed, breathing deeply through his nose. My mum - Renee, sits next to me sipping on her glass of wine. Not appearing bothered in the slightest with what's going on. Her lack of thoughtfulness and compassion hurts me, but I guess I should be used to it now.
Edward's mother - Esme on the other hand, looks visibly upset for her son and places a comforting hand on his shoulder.
If only someone would offer me the same comfort.
Edward calms down at his mother's touch, "Why are you doing this to me?" He whispers as if his in pain. In pain at the idea of being with me, I flinch at the thought.
"I only want what's best for you son," Carlisle says, his voice is firm, his expression calm.
"You leave me no choice!" Edward snaps, all traces of calm disappear and his voice makes me shudder in fear. Never have I seen Edward raise his voice towards his parents.
Carlisle stays silent, allowing Edward to continue, "You know I'll do anything for you, you're using this to manipulate me!"
"Would you really do anything for me?" He asks Edward who nods, sighing deeply. "Well its settled then, you will marry Bella,"
A minute passes before Edward stands up, fists clenched at his sides and storms out the room.
My mind replays Carlisle's words and I know the seriousness behind them, I will become Edward Cullen's wife.
A wife to a man who doesn't love me.
So does anyone think I should continue?
