~*~ Chapter Seven ~*~
The last two hours
I was completely and utterly in love with Edward Cullen. No matter how many times I tried to persuade myself that I wasn't. I just kept falling back in love with him over and over again. The British accent made it even harder to be around him. The way he pronounced certain words made my stomach fill with butterflies.
But sadly, tonight he was leaving to go back to England for a couple of days. If I thought not talking to Edward for four days was bad, imagine what it's going to be like not even being able to see him let along talk to him. I sighed and flopped down on my bed. I looked over at my clock and saw that it was nearly four o'clock. He would be leaving in two hours. I picked up my phone and saw that I had one new message. I opened it and saw that it was from Edward.
Meet me outside.
I smiled and jumped off my bed. I had no idea what time he sent the message. So there was a possibility that he could have left by now. I ran down the stairs and outside, just in time to see Edward sigh and look at his watch. I launched myself into his arms and gave him a soft kiss on the cheek. He luckily caught me and then grinned.
"What are you doing here?" I asked him. "Shouldn't you be at home packing by now?" Edward shrugged before grabbing me by the waist and stared me towards his Jaguar. I let him help me into the car before buckling up. He ran back to the house and locked the door before climbing in after me.
"Where are we going? You don't have very long until you have to leave." I told him. He nodded and sped out of the driveway. Luckily, my parents weren't home. My dad would have had a fit at the sped Edward was driving. Especially with him driving with me in the car.
"I am taking you back to my house." Edward explained. I smiled and nodded. "We can spend some time together before I leave. Alice and Rosalie want you to stay the night so they can take you shopping tomorrow."
"But I have school tomorrow." I said. He smirked and shook his head.
"Not any more you don't." Edward said. "Alice persuaded the vice principal to let you have the day off. And since they are home schooled, they don't have to worry about telling anyone."
"Wait. Hang on." I said. "Why are your brothers and yourself at a public school but Alice and Rosalie aren't?"
"They say that they want to be home schooled." Edward told me. "But I think Emmett and Jasper have forced them."
"Why? What's so bad about going to a public school?" I asked.
"Nothing. It is just the way that Emmett and Jasper work." Edward said. "They don't want anything to happen to Rose and Alice, so they think that it is best if they stay home."
I nodded slowly and wondered what Edwards two brothers would think of me. Would they like me? Or would they think that I wasn't fit enough to be a prince's girlfriend. It is not like I am going to marry the guy or anything.
"Are they there now?" I asked. He nodded as he pulled into his driveway. The large gates opened and we drove up to his home. There were two other cars parked in the driveway as well, a motor cycle and a Jeep. We jumped out and walked hand in hand into the house.
My palms were sweating and I was beginning to get an extremely dry throat. Once we got inside, we walked straight into the living room where I was crushed into someone's chest. I let out a muffled shriek before having my face squished in between someone's muscular chest. I let out a groan when someone pulled me away from the person. I rubbed the tip of my nose and look down at my feet embarrassingly.
"The person who nearly broke your nose and suffocated you would be my little brother, Emmett." Edward said as he pointed to a large, curly haired man standing in front of me. I couldn't help but smile at him. He had a devilish grin on him and the look of mischief glistening in his eyes. "And this is my youngest brother, Jasper." I looked over to where Edward was pointing to and saw a blonde man standing there. I smiled and reached out to shake his hand, but he never accepted it. He glared at it before sitting back down beside Alice. I gulped and took my hand back. I looked over to Edward and saw that he was staring daggers at Jasper.
"Dinner is nearly-" Esme called from the kitchen. "Oh, hello Bella." She waved from the kitchen before taking off her apron and rushing over to give me a hug. I smiled and returned the hug.
"I hope you like fettuccine, because Esme makes the best." Alice said as she stood up and away from Jasper. "Sorry about Jasper, he has trust issues." I saw Jasper scowl at his girlfriend's words.
"I love it." I said happily.
"Now, I brought you some new clothes yesterday." Alice said as she started dragging me upstairs by the arm. "I saw your closet when you went on your first date with Edward, and let me tell you that it is far worse that I feared it would be." I frowned and let her rush me away.
I felt bad for leaving Edward. He was only going to be here for another couple of hours, and I wasn't even able to spend a little bit of time with him. We went into Alice's room, only to find more than seventy bags all over the floor.
"I never realise how much you liked to shop, Alice." I mumbled as I tried to get over the shock of how many bags were on the ground.
"And they are all for you." Rosalie smiled from the doorway.
"We only have about ten minutes before dinner starts, so you will have to hurry." Alice said as she shoved bags at me and pushed me into the bathroom. I sighed and started putting clothes on. It was amazing how much actually fitted me. We continued, for what felt like a lifetime, until Edward came upstairs to tell us that dinner was ready. I blushed when he came in as I was wearing the shorted dress in all eternity. I got changed back into my clothes and saw that Alice and Rosalie were gone, but Edward was sitting on the bed. I smiled when I walked out and we walked hand in hand downstairs.
"Sorry about them." Edward said as we walked downstairs. "They can get a little excited when it comes to shopping. Nobody can control them." I shrugged and smiled as we walked into the dining room. Everyone was seated there, including the King of England. I hadn't met him before and wasn't sure whether or not I should bow? I took a seat next to Edward, who was on my left and the King who was at the tip of the table.
"Hello Isabella, it is a pleasure to meet the young girl who has captured the heart of my eldest son." The king said. I gulped and smiled awkwardly.
"Dad." Edward growled from beside me. His father shrugged and went back to eating. We both served up and got into a quiet conversation.
"So Bella." Emmett said from across the table. "How long have you been living in Forks for?"
"All my life." I said. "I've never left, actually." Emmett's nodded and went back to eating his dinner quietly.
"Are there any places that you plan on going to in the future?" Esme asked. I nodded and swallowed my food.
"A lot of places. I plan on going to Paris when I finish College and then to Australia afterwards." Esme smiled and nodded.
"Bella, hurry up and eat so we can go back upstairs to try your new clothes on." Alice said. I swallowed another mouthful of Esme's delicious meal and nodded slowly. I looked down at Alice's plate to find that she had already managed to eat all of hers. I started to eat quicker, which ended up me flicking fettuccine sauce all up Edward's face. I gasped and immediately started to dab his face with my napkin. His face broke out into a grin just as I had finished dabing his face. Emmett was already laughing while Rosalie and Alice were trying their hardest to cover it up. I turned to face the King, only to find that he was smiling as well.
"Alright, I think that is enough fettuccine for you tonight." Alice laughed and she pulled me up off my seat and back upstairs. We were upstairs before I could even say thank you to Esme for preparing the meal. "Try on that dress next." I was pushed back into the bathroom, where I stayed for the next half an hour.
"Bella." Edward called from Alice's bedroom. I quickly shoved on the dress and walked outside to see what he wanted. "Were going to head to the airport now." I frowned and wrapped my arms around his waist. He pressed his lips tightly to my neck and hugged me back.
"I'm going to miss you." I mumbled into his shirt.
"I'm going to miss you too." He replied as he held onto me tighter. "I'll be back before you know it. I will be back in a couple of days."
"And you will be here for two of them. " Alice said happily. I sighed, knowing that I was going to be stuck with Edward's shopaholic sister the entire weekend. Edward grinned and kissed my cheek.
"Have a good weekend and I will see you in four days." Edward smiled. I pouted and let him kiss my nose. As soon as he walked out of the bedroom, Alice started throwing clothes at me again.
Boy, was this going to be a long weekend.
