Chapter 10


It has been a month since Edward left. He held his promise to call me everyday. The longer he was gone the worse I missed him. We have become very close. I was starting to have for strong feelings for him and I could most definitely say that I was in love with him.

I have been feeling like someone has been following me, but I never seen anyone. I also have been getting calls on my cell phone from a number I didn't know, so I didn't answer them. I haven't said anything to Edward about it because he would worry about it. I was already nervous enough and I didn't need him to worry too.

My phone started ringing. It came up as a private number. I usually try not to answer those calls but people have been calling a lot lately with jobs for me.

"Hello Isabella Swan."

"Well Isabella I'm glad that you answered your phone. I just thought I would let you know that I know where you are and I'm coming to get you."

I hung up the phone before he could say anything else. I ran to the alarm pad and set it. I locked the door and then ran to check all the rest of the doors and locked them.

I went back into the living room and looked out the window. I had to get myself under control because I knew that Edward would be calling me soon. He could always tell when something was wrong with me.

How in the hell is he calling me. He can't be out could he? Wouldn't the police let me know?

Twenty minutes later my phone rang again. I looked at the caller ID this time and it was Edward.

"Hi handsome."

"Well hello to you baby. Why are you so giddy today?"

"I'm just so happy to hear your voice. This is the best part of the day for me is when you call me."

"Well baby, I'm glad it's your favorite part of your day, as it's mine as well. How was your day?"

"My day was good. I went to the grocery store, paid some bills, did a little bit of laundry. That's about it. What have you done?"

"Sweetheart what bills did you have to pay? I thought you were staying at my house?"

"I am, Edward but there are bills here and there are bills that I have to pay for my house."

"Bella, please tell me that you are not paying my bills? I pay those once a month. You should not be taking care of them."

"Edward I'm staying here and using your electric and water so I should pay those. They would not be that much if I wasn't staying here."

"Fine but I will pay you back when I got back into town. I don't like the idea of you spending your money on my bills. You sound off tonight Bella what's wrong?"

"Um.. I. Is there any way that Jacob got out? I've been feeling like someone has been following me and he just called right before you did. He said he knew where I was staying and that he was coming for me. I already locked all the doors and set the alarm. I'm scared, Edward. Can he have gotten out?"

"Baby how long have you felt like you were being followed and was this the first time that he has called you?"

"Just a few days, but tonight was the first time I answered the phone to an private number. I've been getting a lot of job offers and sometimes their numbers come up private so I answered it and it was him."

"Bella I want you to call Rose and Alice and have them come stay with you. I don't want you to be there by yourself. Please do that for me?"

"Ok Edward I will I promise. I guess I will talk to you later. I guess I better call them before it gets too late. Bye Edward and sweet dreams."

"Sweet dreams to you too. Be safe, love. I will call you tomorrow. Bye."

I hung up the phone and called Rose and Alice. Of course they both agreed and Alice being Alice said SLUMBER PARTY! The girl had a thing for those. They both told me they would be here in about an hour or so.

I went and took my shower and got one of Edwards t-shirt and a pair of his boxer briefs. I have grown to like wearing them every night it made me feel close to him.

I showered quickly and got dressed, I knew that Rose and Alice would let themselves in because they have had the code since the band has been playing music.

I did my nightly thing. I had just finished dressing and walking downstairs to the kitchen when I heard the glass in the sliding glass door shattered. Before I could do anything Jacob had me pinned to the wall.

"Bella I told you I was coming for you," he sneered close to my ear.

"Jacob, please leave me alone. I don't understand why you are bothering with me."

"I told you I always get what I want, and that is you...right now," he said as he pulled me by my hair to the living room.

"Stop, please," I pleaded as he smacked me across the face.

"You will learn to listen to me, bitch. Now stop your whining. You're the reason I was fired from my job with 'Midnight Sun'. That prissy ass Cullen fired me, all because of you," he sneered as he brought his face closer to mine.

I could smell his hot breath on my face.

Trying to think what I could possibly do to get away from him. Yet nothing comes to mind.

He pushed me roughly onto the couch, and he reached out his hand to pull up the shirt I was wearing.

"Look how cute, wearing Edward's clothes to sleep in. That's really pathetic, you're here pining away for him, while he's out on the road fucking a different woman every night."

"He wouldn't do that," I said in protest.

Even though that thought stuck in my mind. The image of Edward with another woman wrapped around him as they had sex.

"Bella, I was there remember, before I lost my job. I would go to the hotel room to get him to leave, and there would be empty condom wrappers all by the bed. So don't tell me he wouldn't do that."

He crushed his lips to mine and continued to push my shirt up.

I pushed against him but I couldn't move him. He covered my right breast with his hand and squeezed really hard.

I screamed out in pain but he slapped me again.

The tears fell, and I prayed that there was something I could do before he succeeded in raping me.

He sat up and I pushed him off of me and I ran toward the fireplace.

Jacob was right on my heels, so I did the only thing I could think of. I picked up the heavy crystal vase of flowers that were on the mantle and I hit him on the head with it.

I watched him stumble forward before he fell face first.

I looked as blood began running down the side of his face.

I ran to the room corner, pulling my knees up to my chest and hugged them.

I rocked back and forth, all the while mumbling that I killed him.


We pulled up into Edward's drive way and everything looked ok. We walked up to the door and Rose punched into the code.

"Hey Bella, we are here," I shouted.

The phone was ringing. Why the hell is the phone ringing and why was Bella not answering it? That's when I heard Rose.

"Bella ,what the hell happened?" asked Rose running over to her.

"I killed him, I killed him," Bella mumbled again and again.

I answered the phone and of course it was Edward.

"Alice, why in the hell is Bella not answering the phone. I have tried to call her three times."

I knew that he could hear her in the background.

"Edward, I'm not sure but Bella is in the corner by the fireplace with her knees up by her face and all she is saying is I killed him over and over again. Jacob is laying in front of your fireplace with a big cut going across his head. He's not dead though, but the vase that was on the mantle is shattered all over the floor."

"Alice, please put the phone on speaker."


I clicked the phone to speaker.

"Sweetheart, what happened? Please talk to me."

"I killed him Edward. I killed Jacob. H...he broke the gl...ass on the sliding door and pin...ned me to the wall. T...then pul..led me by my hair to living room. He got my s...sshirt up and grabbed my breasts really hard and k..kissed me. I broke free and and got to t..the mantle and broke the vase over his head. I'm sorry I broke it."

"You did a good job sweetheart. Don't worry about the vase, baby. Are you hurt other than him grabbing your breast?"

"No I'm just scared. I wish you were here to hold me, my Edward. I need you."

"I know baby, I know. I wish I was there to. I don't think Jacob would have come after you if I was there. Rose, please call the police and get that piece of shit out of my house. Alice take the phone and Bella into my bedroom. I'm going to have Emmett call and have someone come and fix the sliding glass door."

"Okay Edward, she's calling them now."

"Alice, do you mind if I talk to Edward alone for a moment?"

"Yeah, sweetie that's fine. I will be downstairs if you need anything just holler."


I heard Bella asking Alice if she could have a moment to talk to me alone. I could only imagine what was going through her mind right now. I just wish I could be there to hold her and take care of her.

"Edward, can I ask you something?"

"Yes, you know that you can baby. What's on your mind?"

"Tonight Jacob said something that is really bothering me. He said that he would come and get you when it was time to leave and that he would see the floor by the bed full of condom wrappers and that you fucked a different girl every night. Edward is what Jacob said true?"

"No, baby. That's not true. You should know better than that. I take relationships very seriously. I just don't sleep with anyone. I've only been with two women and that was several years ago. I have not had a relationship since then either. The tabloids are just full of shit. I do not go around and pick up women and sleep with them. I hope that you believe me Bella."

"I do but he was very convincing. I was hoping it was not true but I just had to know."

"It's fine sweetheart. I'm glad that you asked me and I hope that you feel better knowing that you have an answer. Bella how would you feel about me flying you to where I am and you can go with us for the rest of the tour? I would feel so much better if you are here with me."

"Edward I have a job to do. I can't just up and leave like that."

"Baby don't worry about anything. I will make sure they are taken care of. I want you here with me. I want to take care of you. Please?"

I heard her sigh and then she said, "Ok Edward but you will have to let me pay you back for whatever you pay."

"Sweetheart I will not take your money. I want to do this, if it means you will be with me."

"How about this Edward why don't Rose and Alice come with me so that when you have a show and practice I will have someone to go sightseeing with?"

"Okay baby go back to where Rose and Alice are and ask them. I need to know how many tickets to get and what time your flight will leave."

I could hear her walking through the house. I could tell that she put me on the speaker.

"Hey Rose and Alice, how would you two feel about meeting up with the guys on their tour? Edward wants me with him."

The silly girl had no clue, how much I wanted her with me. Every single fucking day, I wanted her with me.

"That's a great idea. I'm in."

"So am I," Rose said.

"Hey Edward did you hear that?"

"Yes sweetheart I did. I want you to get packed and I will call when I have the flight information. Rose, Alice once Bella is done I want you all to take my truck and leave it at Alice's house and I will have someone waiting to take you to the airport."

"Okay, Edward go call and get our flight booked. I want to get to you as soon as I can."

"Alright baby I'm going to call now. I will talk to you soon. Bye"

"Bye Edward."

She hung up the phone before I could say anything else. I knew that Jasper and Emmett would love to have their wives here with them.

I booked their flight and they would be leaving at midnight and arriving at seven am the next day. Bella would have so much fun here.

I called her back and told them they needed to be at the airport by eleven and that their flight was at midnight.

After I hung up with her I called my driver and had him be at Alice's house by 10:00.

Now I just had to wait until she got here. I wanted her in my arms again. I wanted to be able to kiss her. She would be here at seven o'clock tomorrow morning.

I will be kissing and hugging her again. I have missed that so much.
