Chapter 9: Sleeping
Bella POV... Tuesday Morning
When I woke up in the morning, I felt Edward laying next to me. But he didn't move or say anything when I rolled over. I sat up and looked at him. He looked like he was asleep. His eyes where closed, his breathing was even and low, and he looked peaceful.
"Edward, are you sleeping?" I asked quietly. I giggled at the abusdness of the thought. But he still didn't move.
"Edward, stop playing around." I said. Nothing, his breathing didn't falter. I climbed on to his chest and layed there, for a minute hoping he would do something. Still nothing.
"Alright, you asked for it." I said. I climbed off his chest and moved to the middle of the bed. I pushed him off the bed and he landed with a loud thud on the floor. The second he hit the floor he was jumped up in a crouch and was growling. Then in the same second the whole family was standing in the doorway, looking between a growling Edward and me smiling like an idiot.
Edward looked around and stopped his growling, but he didn't come out of his crouch. Alice statred giggling. I soon joined in. Everyone looked at us like we'd gone crazy.
"What's going on?" Carlisle asked.
"Oh nothing. Me waking up, Edward sleeping next to me, him not waking up, me pushing him off the bed. You know the usual." I giggled. Everyone looked at me like I'd grown a second head.
"What?" I asked feeling self-concoius.
"Edward was asleep?" Carlisle, Esme, Rose, Emmett, and Jasper all asked at the same time. Now Edward got up off the floor and sat next to me on the bed.
"Umm... yeah I think. He looked asleep. And he wasn't responding to me when I tried to wake him up. So I pushed him off the bed." I said.
"Hmm, Edward what were you thinking about?" Carlisle asked.
Edward POV... Shortly before being pushed off the bed
I could tell it was morning by the sound of the birds singing outside. But I didn't want to move I was too comfy. Then Bella rolled over. I could tell she was awake. So when she sat up she asked,
"Edward are you sleeping?" Then she giggled. Problaby at the thought of a vampire sleeping. But I was just too comfy to move or do anything so I just layed there.
"Edward stop playing around." Bella said, she sounded a little worried. I still didn't want to move. She climbed onto my chest and layed there. I was even more comfy with my angel so close, so I still didn't move.
"Alright you asked for it." She said. Bella then climbed off my chest. I thought that was my punishment for not waking up, but no. I felt her hands on my side and then I was sliding sideways. I was slightly concerned that she would hurt herself by pushing me. But that thought was cut short when I hit the floor.
I jumped up into a crouch and started growling. I looked around and saw my family standing in the doorway, and Bella on the bed looking like she'd just won the lottery. I stopped growling realizling that there was no danger.
Alice and Bella were giggling, and I saw that the whole family, including myself were looking at them like they'd gone crazy. I personaly thought that Alice had.
"What's going on?" Carlisle asked. But before I could answer Bella did.
"Oh nothing. Me waking up, Edward sleeping next to me, him not waking up, me pushing him off the bed. You know the usual." She giggled. Now everyone thought that Bella had officialy gone crazy.
"What?" Bella asked, blushing.
"Edward was asleep?" Everyone except Alice asked. I got up and sat next to Bella, because she was now a deep, beautiful crimson color.
"Umm... yeah I think. He looked asleep. And he wasn't responding to me when I tried to wake him up. So I pushed him off the bed." Bella said.
"Hmm, Edward what were you thinking about?" Carlisle asked me.
"Umm, nothing really. Last night I was listening to Bella's heartbeat and breathing, and the next thing I knew Bella was rolling over in my arms. But I was too comfy to move. Then she tried to get my attention but I really didn't want to move. Then when she climbed on my chest, there was no way in the world I was going to move. Then she said 'Alright, you asked for it.' and climbed off my chest and proceded to push me off the bed." I said.
Everyone burst out laughing. I pulled Bella into my lap and buried my face in her hair. But my hiding place was soon taken away when Bella got off the bed and walked over to the door. They immedetly stopped laughing when Bella slammed the door in their faces, then Bella and I started to laugh.
"Good morning, Edward." Bella said sweetly, a little too sweetly.
"Good morning, Angel." I said caustiosly.
"So is there a reason why you didn't want to wake up this morning?" She asked completly serious. Then she sat on my lap again. I wrapped my arms around her waist and kissed her. She broke the kiss after a few seconds. I felt my face move into a pout.
"Your avoiding the question." She said. I tried to kiss her again, but she pulled back before our lips could touch.
"Why are you avoiding the question?" She asked. To be honest I just wanted to kiss her crazy. But obviously that couldn't happen until she got her answer.
"If I answer you can I kiss you?" I asked her. She nodded, yes.
"Okay, I didn't feel like moving because I was too comfy with you next to me. Then when you climbed on my chest I was even more comfy and there was no way I was going to move. Then when you climbed off my chest I thought it was just punishment for me not waking up. Then when you started to push me I thought you might hurt yourself. So I didn't try to fight back." I explained.
"So let me get this straight. You didn't want to move because you were comfy?" She asked me.
"Yes." I said slowly.
"And you couldn't have answered me why?" She asked. She was really starting to get on my nerves. I just wanted to kiss her crazy. That's all. Is that to much for a guy to ask for?
"Umm... I don't know." I said. She just rolled her eyes, but smiled. That was all I needed. I leaned in and kissed her forehead, cheeks, neck, nose, jaw, head, shoulders, and lastly and most impotantly her lips. I reapeted the cycle several times before we were rudely inturputed.
"You guys better come out of there so we can get to school!" Alice yelled banging on the door. Neither Bella nor I moved, so I just kept kissing her.
Edward don't make me come in there and drag Bella away! Alice thought at the same time she said, "Bella don't force me to take you on a week long shopping trip!"
That did it for Bella. She jumped out of my lap and ran to the door and out of my room. She ran all the way to her room and shut the door. Then I heard her closet slam open. I glared at Alice who was standing in the doorway.
"What I didn't do anything." Alice said. Oh and don't forget to talk to Bella about graduation. She added on mentaly then skipped downstaris. I got up and walked over to my closet, to get ready.
By the time I got downstairs Bella was standing by the front door, with two poptarts on a paper towel. She was completely dressed with her shoes on and backpack on her back. The second she spotted me walking down the stairs she turned around she grabbed my keys off the table and tossed them to me. Then she walked out the front door and down the porch.
I followed her out the door and around to the garage. She was waiting by the passenger door of my Volvo when I got in the garage. I walked over unlocked and opened the door for her. she quickly threw her backpack in the back and climbed in. I walked around and got in the Volvo.
"In a hurry, Love?" I asked her.
"Umm... No not really. I just don't want to got on a week long shopping trip with Alice. Who knows what she would make me put on." Bella said, sounding slightly horrified.
"Oh well, since you are in no rush, how about you drive today." I said. She stared at me like I'd grown a second head or just told her that vampires can get pregnant. Which ever is more impossible.
"Oh well, since you are in no rush, how about you dirve today." Edward said. I knew that there were a hundred emotions running across my face. Surpise, shock, wondering, astonishment, and many more.
"Really?" I managed to get out.
"Yeah, why is it such a suprise? You've driven Rose's car. That would have been enough to shock a vampire." Edward asked.
''I don't know. I guess I never expected you to let me drive when we are in your car.'' I admitted.
"Why not. There's a first for everything. Isn't there." Edward said. I giggled remembering our conversation about grocery shopping.
"Yeah, I guess there is." I said. I climbed out of the car, and walked around to the driver side. Edward got out and held the door open for me. Then he handed me the keys and walked around to the passenger side.
Just as I was getting in Rose, Em, Jazz and Ali were walking in the garage door and they all stopped dead in their tracks. I laughed put the keys in the ignition. I pulled out of the garage but stopped when I was closer to them. They were still frozen.
"What never seen me drive before?" I asked jokingly.
"You let her drive but not me!" Emmett exclaimed pouting.
"She's my sweet, caring, beautiful, stunning, careful girlfiend. And your my annoying, reckless, pouting brother." Edward smirked.
"Exactly all the more reason the let me drive." Emmett said walking over to his jeep. I noticed that Alice went over to her porsche, Rose to her convertible, and Jazz to his Ducati. I sliently wondered why they were all driving seperatly.
I finished pulling out of the garage and down the driveway. I also noticed that Carlisle and Esme pulling out of the garage in seperate cars. As I drove to school Jasper passed us on his bike. But Rose, Em, Alice, Esme and Carlisle stayed behind me. About half way to school I finally asked Edward.
"Why is everyone in seperate cars?" I asked him.
"Jasper wants to get Alice her gradutaion gift without her with him. Alice needs a way to get to school. Emmett and Rose just want to show off their cars. Esme is going gricery shopping and graduation gift shopping. And Carlisle is going to the hospital." Edward said.
"Alice could have rode with us." I said. Edward suddenly looked slightly uncomfortable.
"Umm..yeah...she wanted to give us some talking time." He said.
"What is it Edward?" I asked. I tried to keep my eyes on the road but I was having a difficult time. I kept looking over at Edward.
"Well...Bella...Angel...Love...umm.." Edward said, stalling.
"Edward just spit it out." I said calmly.
"Okay, well Alice had a vision that Charlie would come up to you at graduation and try to talk to you. But she can't see if you will talk to him. So I decided that it was up to you. If you want to talk to him then we won't do anything, but if you don't want to talk to him then we'll just have to figure something out." Edward said, he said it so fast I was having a hard time following him. But I think I got everything important. Charlie...talk...graduation...if I don't want to I don't have to.
"Oh...well...umm..." I said, not knowing what to say.
Do I want to talk to him? I thought.
No, it might just make things worse. Thought the voice in my head.
But what if he wants to apoligize? I thought back.
By now I had parked next to Jasper in the school parking lot. With Alice on the other side of him, Rose on the side of Edward and I, Emmett was next to Alice.
What if he wants to take you away? What if he wants to accuse you and Edward some more? The voice thought back. I was vaguley aware that Edward was staring at me.
"Angel are you okay?" Edward asked. He loosened my fists off of the sterring wheel. I looked over at him. He looked troubled.
"Yeah. I was just thinking about Charlie." I mumbled. His troubled expression changed to a concerned one.
"Do you want to talk to him at graduation?" Edward asked quietly.
"I don't know." I admitted. Just then there was a knock on my window, which I had my back to. I jumped and screamed. When I turned around I saw Emmett standing right in front of my face on the other side of the glass. And screamed again. Emmett started laughing.
I jumped out of the car and stared Emmett down. Then I decided. Alice started laughing and walked over to us. She gave Edward a meaningful look and he walked around the car. Edward wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me behind him then smacked Emmett on the back of the head. Emmett's laughing stopped immedetly.
"Ow! What was that for?" Emmett boomed.
"That, was for scaring Bella." He said simply. Then turned around and kissed me.
I read Emmett's thoughts two seconds too late. He had already knocked on the window. Bella jumped and screamed. She whipped around and screamed again when she saw Emmett. She then got out of the car so fast. Faster than any normal human. I got out of the car before Bella did something stupid.
Edward! Alice thought. Then I was captured in a vision.
This was Bella's decision. She wanted me to smack Emmett on the back of the head. So I did just that. I walked around to the driver side of the car and pulled her behind me. Then I reached out and smacked Emmett on the back of his head. HARD.
"Ow! What was that for?" Emmett yelled.
"That, was for scaring Bella." I told him. Then I turned around and kissed Bella. To be honest I wanted to scoop her up and run with her to our meadow. And spend the rest of eternity laying with each other in our meadow.
