Alright so I already have this up on another site and not many comments have came in so I'm posting here. Hopefully I'll get more. Now on with the story!
Finally updating! Hope ya'll like it!
I was actually smiling when I walked into the house. And an actual smile.
“Someone’s happy.” I heard and turned around from the staircase. Charlie stood there with his dad-smile. “Anything happen today at school?” I rolled my eyes.
“Do we have to talk about it?” I slid my bag off my shoulder and sat on the step looking up at him bored.
“Fine. This is me backing off.” He said backing away with his hands up in surrender. “Oh and I will be at La Push all tomorrow.” I nodded and headed up to my room. I had a date tomorrow. A smile crept back over my mouth. I couldn’t help but let out a childish giggle. I caught my reflection in the mirror. The girl there looked….Happy. Her eyes had a red ting to them from crying a little. But her cheeks finally had color under the pale skin. And her eyes…Had light in them. After so long. I turned away. I deserver to be happy. Don’t I? I fell back onto my bed and starred at the ceiling. Wow. I have a date. For the first time in almost two years. I closed my eyes and fell into a peaceful sleep…
“Bella.” I spin around to the voice. No! He has the biggest smirk on his face. My knees begin to tremble.
“No. You cant be here.” I whisper and try to back away. My breathing has increased and its painful to breathe.
“But I am my dear. Now. We can be together. Finally.” His cynical blue eyes make me shiver.
“No!” I close my eyes and cover my ears.
“Gah!” I sit up straight. What the hell? My chest hurts. Like the dream. I look around dazed and try to make sense of the dream. He cant find me. Not when I’m barely getting my life together again. There was another bang on my door. “What?” I say loud enough. It slowly opens and a blonde head pops in. Followed by a pixie. Oh no.
“We heard you had a date Bells.” Alice said dragging a bag into the room. I eyed the bag knowing what was in it. “Don’t give me that look. You know we have to.” She said plopping down next to me.
“You don’t like make-over’s?” I shook my head at Rosalie. “Well to darn bad. We are going to get you dressed up for Eddie. No hustle. Into the shower.” She said handing my towel and shooing me into the bathroom. I sighed and turned the water on cold. Needing somehow to wake up. I quickly undressed and stepped into the freezing water. I immediately woke up and turned it to warm. My teeth had started to chatter by then. I quickly shampooed and conditioned my hair feeling oddly refreshed. I shut off the water and dried off. The mirror had fogged over and my reflection was just a blur. I wiped away the steam and gave myself a good one two. I looked happy again. Maybe this was a good thing. I carefully opened the door and found close sitting near the door. I scooped them up and looked them over. Sensible underwear. But the outfit. God no. After putting them on I found out the pants were tight on my butt. The top however was….okay. It was a button down baby eye blue blouse. It fit comfortably. I took a breathe. Happy Bella. Be happy. Jacob’s voice sounded so real that it made me want to cry. I can do this. I can do this, I repeated to myself.
“Bella?” The bathroom door swung open just as I was about to. “Oh. Damn that looks good on you.” She titled her head a little to look at my face. “Make up time.” She said clapping and I groaned. “Please let me have a little fun. Please please please please.” No point in saying no.
“Fine but nothing over the top.” She nodded and pulled me back into my room. Whoa. They had set up a whole station of cosmetics. And jewelry. Joy.
“Sit.” I obeyed and sat on my bed. They immediately started to paint my face. Alice did my eye shadow and blush while Rosalie fussed over my hair. I didn’t seem the point in this. No amount of make up can make me pretty. Bella! Jake’s voice was in my head again and my chest started to hurt. Just breathe. Breathe. In and out. In and out. Good. I stopped feeling the tugging and pulling from my hair and the feeling of a brush on my cheeks. “Done.” Alice said holding up a mirror. Holy crap. This couldn’t be me. The girl looked….so….so….Hot. Her brown eyes stood out from the smoky blue eye shadow. Her cheek bones were pronounced and high. And her lips had a slight red tint them. I gasped. This was me. And I am happy.
“Well?” Rosalie interrupted my thoughts. I wrapped my arms around the both of them smiling like a maniac.
“Thank you thank you thank you.” They patted my back and smiled.
“Welcome. But don’t forget…” Alice handed me a blue bracelet that matched my shirt and black heels.
“Alice you kno-”
“Fine.” She pulled a pair of black ballet slippers and helped me put them on. Those things were crazy. I stood up and felt confident for the first time in a long time. This was good. “Thanks again guys.” I grabbed my sweater and glanced at the clock. Whoa. It was already 5:30. Time really does fly. Any minute he’ll be here.
“Don’t you look pretty.” I spun around and faced Charlie.
“Uh-Hi dad. Aren’t you suppose to be at La Push.” The place where I met Jacob.
“Yeah. I was headed there now.” He gave me an unexpected hug. “You look beautiful Bella. Remember that.” I nodded and he let me go disappearing out the door. I heard the stairs creak behind me.
“Aw.” They both said. I ignored them and walked into the kitchen. Should I eat something? Or wait till dinner? Ugh. A knock at the door made me jump. I looked out the window. Edward’s car was parked in Charlie’s spot. I looked at the kitchen clock. He was early. The muffled giggles from the living room started to get louder and I told them to either leave or hush up. They stayed quiet. I went down the long hallway and opened the door. And there he was in all his glory standing there. His shirt matched mine and I smiled.
“Hey.” He said. I opened the door wider so he could come in.
“Hey yourself.” I closed the door and face him. His eyes wandered from my feet up to my eyes. My cheeks grew hot and I knew the blush got darker.
“You look….Um….Wow.” I smiled bigger and felt a flutter in my stomach.
“Thank you.” Alice said heading our way. Curse that little pixie. “I did do a good job.” I scowled at her and she just rolled her eyes. “Anyway me and Rose were just going to leave.” Rose came from the living room tugging the huge make up bag. I shut the door behind them.
“So-uh-you go ahead.” We said at the same time. “You first.” He said.
“I was just going to say you’re early.” I shrugged.
“And I was going to say that was because I booked the dinner earlier than planned. We dine at 6.” He gave me his crooked smile and I curled my toes. The things he did to me already.
“That’s okay.” My turned out a little shaky. “Let me get my coat.” Anything so I can get some of my senses back. I hurried and grabebd my keys and jacket.
“All set?” I nodded and we went out to his volvo. He opened my door and I thanked him. I bit my lip as he walked around the car. Don’t be nervous. You’ll be fine. He got in the driver side and started the car. I buckled quickly but my hands kept fumbling. Ugh. “Here.” He helped me and I smiled.
“Thanks.” He started down the road and to Port Angeles. Classic music filled the car. I hummed along to the melody.
“You know Debusse?” I nodded.
“Only my favorites.” He smiled and laughed.
“This is my favorite too.” I joined in with his laughing. We made it to the restaurant in peace. But I had a feeling I was being watched…..
Because I need to hurry with this lets pretend that Bella and Edward went to dinner at La Bella Italia *of course* and are now driving back to Bella's.
The feeling would not go away. At the resteraunt and into the car. Hell even when I went to wash my hands in the bathroom. Oh no. He couldn't have found me already. I started to bite on my bottom lip. Terrible habit, I know.
"Bella?" I snapped out of my haze and looked at Edward. "Um. You were looking like you wanted to scream or something."
"Oh...Um. Sorry." Was all I could get out. He gave me a long side look and turned his attention back to the road.
"Bella. You don't have to be sorry for anything. I think I should be the sorry one." My eyebrows raised and I shifted so I faced him.
"Why? Did I do something wrong?" My voice trembled.
"You didn't seem ready to go out. I knew that but I didn't really acknowledge that. Bella I'm sorry that I made you go out tonight." He was sorry for that? He regretted it.
"You regret it already." I whispered and looked at my hands. My eyes prickled but I kept blinking tears back. I knew this was to good to be true. It was to soon to try to be happy again. No Bella! I could hear Jacob in my head and that only made me want to cry more.
"Oh god no Bella." I felt something tug at one of my hands and I let it go limp. I felt the car stop and saw we were at my house already. "Why would you think that?" I kept my face down. Seeing his face wouldn't do any good. Bella. Be happy, please, for me. Again Jacob tried. I bit my lip again and looked at Edward. I knew what he was seeing. A girl pathetically about to cry and he was in an akward place. But when I looked up at him all I could see was sincerity and care.
"I dont know." I whispered and starred at his warm firm hand around mine. I hadn't felt a touch like that in over a year. Good. Be happy Bella. I will always watch over you and help. My eyes pricked again and Edward took it wrong.
"I am such an idiot. Bella I am so so sorry. I dont regret it." He pulled me akwardly close. The buckle to the seat belt dug into my thigh and I let out a whimper. "Please dont cry." He whispered and I felt his hand as light as a moths wing on my hair. It was comforting. In a way I wanted.
"I-im not crying." I pulled away and wiped my eyes with my sleeve. I let out a small laugh. "Or atleast not why you think." I gave him a smile.
"Its official. Isabella Swan you are the wierdest chick I know. Aside from Alice anyway." He chuckled and I felt a flutter in my stomach and chest. "But I dont think I would change that." He was so close. My eyes make their way down from his eyes to his cheeks then his lips. "Could.....Could I try something?" I nodded without thinking. He leaned closer and before I could protest his lips were touching mine. It wasn't a forced kiss like the one's James gave me. Or the ones I was use to like Jacobs. But it was sweet and soft. I closed my eyes and leaned into it. His other hand found mine and without breaking the kiss, his arms wrapped around my waist and mine around his neck. He pulled away just barely and I could see his eyes had darken. Blood rushed to my face and I tilted my head so he coulnd't see.
"Wow." My pathetic answer. I was mentally smacking myself.
"You could say that again." His arms were still around me and by the way we were posed I could tell he was just as uncomfortable as I was.
"Oh sorry." I detangled myself and blushed harder when my top went up a little revealing my stomach. I quickly covered it before he saw the scar there.
"No need to be. Come on let's o before it really starts to rain." I nodded and grabbed my purse. He opened my door and my cheeks got darker. If it were possible anyway. He grabbed onto my arm when I almost slipped and again his face was only inches apart. I reached up on my toes and kissed his cheek. A n electric shock ran through my body.
"Thank you." Then something I didn't expect happened. I blinked and right behind Edward stood....Jacob. I gasped. How was he here. It's okay, I heard him in my head, I will always help you Bella.. A smile formed on his ghostly figure making me want to cry more. I missed that smile so much.
"Um. I should get you inside." Edward brought me back and Jacob was gone. I felt a twinge in my heart. He said he'd always be watching. We walked up the steps and Edward turned to look at me. "Bella. Can I jsut say something? And promise not to laugh please."
"Of course." I giggled. Whoa. I never giggled.
"Bella. I think.....I think I may be fall-" He was interrupted by the front door opening. Charlie stood there with his shot gun in hand.
"Hello Edward." Please dont kill him, please dont kill him, I chanted in my head. "Bella. Um you got a phone call from someone and their still waiting for you I guess." He turned around and mummbled something. Way to kill the mood Dad!
"Sorry. What were you going to say?" But he just shook his head.
"I'll tell you another time. Oh and can I maybe call you sometime?" I smiled.
"I'd like that." I reached up and kissed his cheek again. Lord knows I wanted to do something else.
"Great." With that he walked down the steps and I swear my knees almost gave out then. I stumbled into the door and shut it behind me. I walked into the kitchen and Charlie was sitting there holding out the phone.
"Thanks Dad." I took the phone. "Hello?"
"Well well. I have found you my love." My heart stopped and everything seemed to slow.
"How the hell did you find me." I growled. He couldn't have. Not now.
"Oh sweet sweet Isabella. I am always watching you." My mind blurred and everything went black.......
OMG RJ how could you leave it like that? How did James find her so fast? Yeah I know he's a tracker. Man I hope she doesn't do anything stupid but she's Bella so of course she will. Ok so post more when you can please?
