Disclaimer: Twilight and all the associated characters belong to Stephanie Meyer. The story line and all their naughty little actions come to you courtesy of me.
I look up from the book I'm reading and EJ is standing just a few yards away from me. He is wearing a black business suit with a blood red tie. I don't say anything... I can't. My mouth goes dry and the speech section of my brain has turned to mush.
"Why, you look surprised to see me," he states in that devilish way.
Since my brain can't form a coherent word, I look down at my phone, sweep my finger over the unlock button and hit the phone icon. Luckily my favorites list pops up and I touch the name of the one person I want more than anybody at the moment.
While I was concentrating on my phone, I didn't notice that EJ had moved closer. He is standing right in front of me and reaches down and sweeps his hand across the table, throwing the book and my phone into the wall before they fall to the ground. Oh God, please still be working...
"Bella, I am offended. I hope you weren't thinking of calling for help? I'm just here to talk to you." He starts to walk around the table to get closer to me.
I stand as quickly as I can, knocking the chair over in the process. I manage to get my brain to function and stutter out a few words.
I have one arm out as if to stop him from getting any closer and my other hand is reaching behind me because I know I am getting close to having my back up against the wall. I look down at my phone and see the screen still lit up indicating my call went through. I look away because I don't want to draw EJ's attention to it.
"Bella, you know it drives me wild when you look so scared. You're like a frightened little pussy…cat." He gives me a devilish smile as he traps me against the wall.
"EJ…stay away from me. I'll scream." I protest.
"Will you be screaming my name like you scream Edward's?" He practically spits the words out.
"Edward has nothing to do with this!" I demand.
"Edward has everything to do with this. You see, he has everything I want and I am going to get it all back. And you, my dear, are first on the list." His face is so close to mine I can feel his breath as it passes over me making my stomach churn. He puts both of his slimy hands on the wall on either side of my face and leans in to whisper in my ear. I close my eyes as tightly as I can, willing him to go away.
"I can't wait to touch you and feel you squirming underneath me."
Just when I think I am about to throw up I hear the sweetest words ever spoken. "Over my dead body will you ever lay one finger on her!" Edward!
EJ turns and faces Edward. I can see EJ go tense and I notice Edward has his phone in his hand. My call must have gone through. I send up a silent prayer…Thank the Lord.
"Edward," EJ says in greeting. How does he even know Edward?
"James." Edward says in response. James?! What the hell?
"I am so glad you could join us, Edward. I am sorry to have to correct you though." EJ turns back to me and gives me a wink. "You see, I have already laid my hands all over her." Edward practically growls at him. "You don't like the thought of that, do you? Well, I'm sorry old friend, but it's the truth. See, I had Bella way before you came along."
Edwards's eyes shift to mine and I look down in humiliation at the fact that this man ever touched me. Edward seems to read the trepidation in my face.
"Well, I am here now, and the only person that gets to touch her is me. So I think it is time that you leave." Edward is staying cool and calm, but I can see the fury in his eyes.
