She's crying again. I don't know why she's putting up with him. Doesn't she realize that he's an ass! Doesn't she realize that he's taking advantage of her? Of her kindness? Of her love for him?! Doesn't she realize that she deserves someone better? Someone that can take care of her? I can take care of her… Wait, what?

I tapped on the window of her truck.

"Jazz…" She said as she raised her head from the steering wheel trying to put a smile for me.

"Bella. Please don't cry," I begged. "What did he do this time?"

"It's my fault, Jazz. Please let's not talk about it." She's wiping her tears now.

"Let me take you home."

She moved to the passenger side as I opened the driver side of her red pickup truck. She leaned her head back and closed her eyes. We drove in silence until we reached her house. I got off the truck and opened her door for her. When she got off, she gave me a tight hug. I hugged her back and kissed the top of her head. She walked over to her house and waved goodbye at me once she's inside. I went to the tree beside their house and took her bike so that I can go home.

When I was well rested on my bed ready to doze off, I heard a tap on my window. I walked over to it and saw Bella. I opened it immediately and let her in. We looked at each other for a few seconds then I opened my arms for her. She went into my arms and tucked her head under my chin. I walked us to my bed and pulled the comforter for her. I motioned for her to lie down and she acquiesced. I went to my side of the bed, turned off the lamp, and reached out for her hand. Then she started sobbing until she fell asleep. Again.

That's how Bella and I are. We don't need words to communicate how we feel. We just need assurance that we're there for each other.

The next day, I drove us to school. Edward's already waiting for her at the parking lot. When she got off the truck, she walked towards him and him towards her. They kissed and made up then held each other's hand while walking to the campus. Asshole! Where did that come from? Edward's my friend, too! When he makes Bella cry, he's not!

The days went by easily. I bike to Bella's house almost every night just to check on her, like I normally do since we were little, but ever since she started dating Edward Cullen I always ended up on the corner of her street because her truck's either not there or a silver Volvo's parked out front.

By the end of the week, we all attended Alice's Fall Party at their house. The Brandon's throws the coolest party in town. She and her brother, Emmett, are very popular for it. They have a dance floor and a karaoke machine. Bella and Edward are having a great time. Laughing, chatting, drinking, dancing… Kissing… Touching… Argh! I need to stop torturing myself! Huh? Since when is watching Bella and Edward a torture for me? It's been a while now and you know it. Hell! You've been in love with her your whole life but you don't want to admit it! Oh shut up!

"Jazz! Come dance with me!" Bella's inviting me to come to her wearing a beautiful smile on her face. God, I love that smile! You love her. Period.

She's actually asking me to dance with her and I know she hates to dance. Wonder how much she had to drink? I stalked over to her walking like a jungle cat with a teasing smile on my face while she's making a pulling motion with her hands. When I reached her she threw her hand on my neck and I placed my hands on her hips. We swayed to the music playfully at first, throwing our heads back laughing out loud. Then our eyes met… locked. It felt like we're the only people in the room. I started swaying my hips and she followed through. I pulled her closer to me she turned around so her back is on my frontand she started swaying her hips. She stretched her left hand back to my head and we're still looking at each other. I got lost in her chocolate brown eyes. She's got pretty eyes. Her nose is perfect and her lips… Damn those lips are inviting! God she's beautiful! Then it all ended. The music changed and we're not alone anymore. Bella pulled away from me and looked at her feet. Edward was suddenly at Bella's side and pulled her away. I'm not sure but he looks like he's irritated. Duh?! You were grinding at yourself on his girlfriend! Shit!

I walked away from the dance floor and took a shot from Jessica. This girl never gives up. Even when I tried dating her friend Lauren she kept on trying to lure me into her bed or her car… or wherever she finds me alone. She even asked Bella to set us up. Thank God my best friend loves me enough not to do so. I hope she loves me. Oh she loves you alright, just not like how you wish!

After the party I went straight home, took a shower and pulled my pajamas. Wonder where Edward and Bella went? I didn't see them anymore after we danced.

Tap. Tap. Tap. There's my answer. I walked to my window, opened it and let my angel in. My angel? Really?

She went straight to my bed and pulled the cover over her. I stayed standing and stared at her for awhile. She's looking back at me with sad eyes. She's been crying again. Fuck, Cullen! She reached out to me and I can't resist. I walked towards her and she pulled the covers up for me. I climbed on the bed and she leaned her head on my shoulders then she started sobbing. I want to kill Edward Cullen! God, I can't take this anymore! She doesn't deserve this. She deserves to smile and be happy. She needs to be held and taken care of. Can't he see how lucky he is to have her? She's smart, independent, funny, kind, compassionate… and she's beautiful. She's fucking amazing! Then take her. Love her, make her feel special. Take care of her.

I sat up on the bed and looked at her. I cupped her face with my hands and stared at her beautiful eyes. I want to get lost in them, and I did! I kissed her and she kissed me back. We were holding on to each other, touching each other, tugging hair, sucking each other's lips, tongue on tongue… and it felt fucking amazing! Suddenly, she pulled away standing up from the bed and paced across my room for a few minutes. Then she looked at me.

"This is wrong," she said and took a deep breath.

"So why did it feel so right? I know you felt it, too, Bella." She didn't respond. She grabbed her sneakers and climbed out of my window. I didn't follow her.

When I woke up the next day, it was raining really hard but I want to check on Bella. Looks like my mom used my jeep so I took my bike out and pedaled my way to Bella's house. I stopped at the corner of her street when I saw Edward's Volvo parked outside her house. I felt numb. I just stood there… like I did a thousand times before.

Suddenly the front door of her house opened and Edward was stepping out. He turned around to face Bella and leaned down to kiss her. I don't feel numb anymore. I turned around and pedaled my way back to the house. But I didn't stop when I reached our house. I continued on until I reached the other side of town by the beach. My heart is pounding and my mind is racing. Why does she always go back to him? Why can't she leave him? I know he doesn't make her feel happy anymore! You should start dating again. I don't think I can specially now that I'm sure that it's Bella that I want.

I stayed at the beach until a little after noon. Going back, I received a text from Emmett saying that we should continue the party tonight and it's going to be Karaoke night. I wasn't sure if I was coming so I didn't reply. I don't want to torture myself again with the sight of the happy couple.

When I got back, i took a shower and ate. As I was trying to catch an afternoon nap, I started arguing with my subconscious.

You should tell Bella how you feel.

I showed her how I feel but she thinks it was wrong.

But it feels so good to have her in your arms, right? She belongs there.

She ran away from me. I should give up. She'll always run back to Edward, anyway.

She kissed you back!

Yes. Yes. She. Did. She kissed me back and I know that she feels something, too.

So what are we going to do?

We are going to get ready for a party.

High five!

When I got to the party, Tanya was singing an Adele song. I didn't bother to know what it was and headed straight for the beer. Emmett gave me a shot of tequila which I willingly accepted and downed with no salt and lime. I didn't look for Bella or Edward. I took the song book and looked for a song. I haven't sang in front of a crowd before but I felt the need to do it. When I looked up from the song book, I saw my cousin Rosalie looking at me with an amused look on her face. She's happy that I'm going to sing. Only our family and Bella know that I sing and they've been trying to let me out of my comfort zone and embrace my "talent".

"Go get her, tiger," Rosalie whispered to me. She knows alright.

After Mike and Victoria finished their duet, I downed my beer and went up the stage.

The music began, I closed my eyes took a deep breath, and when I opened them I found chocolate brown eyes staring at me, and I stared back..

Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along, yeah
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want
I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

As the song ended, I looked away from Bella and walked down the stage. People were cheering and clapping for me. I gave a polite nod to some of them and some were tapping my back as I head out the door. I made my last move and it's time to go home.

I don't plan on stealing Bella from Edward. I just want to go there and have a good time. And see her. I want her happy and if Edward makes her happy then she should be with him. Bella and I have been through a lot since we were young. I can't let my emotions get in the way of our friendship. I'd rather have her as a friend than not have her in my life at all. Yes, I admit, I'm hurting. It hurts to see someone I love in the arms of someone else. It hurts that he makes her cry sometimes. It even hurts when he makes her laugh or smile. And it hurts the most that she loves him and not me. But I need to let her be. May be I'll find my own happiness someday. I know I've had had my fair share of girls but no one can compare to my angel. I think I'll attend military school after I graduate high school. It might help me forget the emotional pain when I let the physical pain take over.

Tap. Tap. Tap.
