The blind side of love
A Twilight Fanfiction
By: Zaicha The Vampire Goddess
You don’t have to see the one you love to know that it's the one.
I'm Edward Mason and this is my love story:
Who said that you have to see the one you love to that she’s the one? I can’t say that exactly because I’ve been blind since I was 10 years old. Ever since then I’ve been living in the dark, but as the years passed I had learned to cope with my incapacity. Is been hard and sometimes I thought that it was unfair but who said that life is fair?
I’m almost 18 years old my twin sister Alice is my best friend; we are both on our way to college. She had dedicated every minute of her life to take care of me. She’s the best friend or sister that anyone could ask for and I love her a lot. Sometimes I wished that she had a boyfriend; she has a few friends but I know that she hasn’t gone on a date in a long time, she had cared too much for me.
My mother, what can I say about my dear mother Esme, she has also dedicated her life to take care of me and Alice. She’s been a widow since my father died in the car accident in wich I lost my vision. It was caused by a drunk driver; my father died instantly. Since then I had to learn to live without eyes; I had learned to see with my other senses. It wasn’t easy but that was the way I have to live.
I refuge myself in music, I relearned to play the piano and a few years ago I started composing music. Next fall Alice and I will be entering college, mom didn’t want me to enroll but I convinced her. She’s a bit overprotective but I love her anyway.
I have to say that I’ve never fell in love. Let’s face it, who will want a boyfriend who can’t see? Alice says that we will find love together, I laugh every time she says that. Maybe for her but for me…
You don’t know how wrong I was, very, very, very wrong…

The Halloween party
(Two weeks later)
It’s been a few days since that horrid dinner at Edward’s house. When I got home that night, I felt bad and cried myself to sleep. The next day I received a dozen roses with a card signed by Edward and Alice, they were both so sweet nit like their mother at all so I forgave them. Mom wanted to have a Halloween party at our house and she told me to invite anyone I wanted so I did my list, I hesitated when I wrote Edward and Alice’s names, but I decided to invite them anyway, and instead of sending them the invitation by mail like mom did with the rest; I gave them their personally.
I didn’t trust Esme…
Mom and I were at Party City buying the decorations and cutlery for the party, after that we are going to get our costumes.
“Hey Bella, did you gave Alice and Edward Masen their invites?” mom asked. “Yes, yes I did, they were exited but I don’t know” I replied.
“Do you think they would come?” she asked, “I hope so” I said with disdain, I really want them to attend.
Edward is like a puzzle, I want to decipher him, him and his mysterious and shy character. There’s just something about him that drives me crazy.
“Bella, you know something…that Edward boy is kind of cute, do you know what color of eyes does he has?” mom asked me over lunch. “Actually mom I don’t know, he never takes his glasses off” I replied.
I was so excited, Bella had invited us to her party, the last time I dressed for Halloween was 10 years ago, that year I had been peter pan and Alice thinker bell, dad had been captain hook and mom had been Wendy that was one of the last holiday we had spent as a complete family.
Alice said that she would handle my costume and that she was going to coordinate with jasper. I couldn’t wait for the night of the party to be here, I had given mom the silent treatment for a week, she needed to see that she misjudged Bella, I don’t know if she was sincere or not with her apology or not, but surprisingly she let us go to Bella’s party…it was actually Bella’s mom party, but Bella invited us…
The night of the party arrived, Alice was helping me get my costume on, she told me that she was going to be Alice in Wonderland and Jasper was mad hatter. She told me that I was The Beast form the Beauty and the Beast; because Bella told her that she was going to be Belle. Sneaky Alice, she made sure that Bella and I were coordinated even though we weren’t a couple. The headpiece of my costume was a bit heavy, but I didn’t mind. Alice told me that I had to be barefoot, I told her no and she let me use flip-flops I wanted my converse really bad, after that she worked on my face and made me look like the beast, thirty minutes later we were on our way to Bella’s house.
“Hey Alice I wanted to know…is Bella pretty?” I asked as I felt the blush creep on my cheeks.
“Well Edward, she is” Alice replied. Alice then described her to me, she said that she had brown long wavy hair, she said she had brown doe eyes that they were the color of chocolate, and that she was pale. She also told me Bella was just a few inches taller than her, I took those features and created a mental picture, she was more than pretty, she is beautiful.
I felt a little nervous when we got to Bella’s house; the party was outside so we went through the gate that led to the patio. Alice told me that everything was decorated with ghosts, spider webs, spiders, skeletons, bats, jack-o-lanterns, twinkle lights, and fake smoke.
“Alice, do you think that I should get closer to Bella? I mean, I want to decipher these feelings I have for her, but I’m scared that she will reject me because I can’t see” I told my sister.
“Oh Edward, you worry too much! You need to live a little, fall in love, make mistakes…all of that. If there’s something there brother you need to give it a shot, okay?” she told me, I nodded.
I had to be brave and give this a shot. Jasper found us and joined us; he praised Alice and me for our costumes. He told us that no one repeated a costume and that Disney was the main theme; he told us that Bella’s mom was Cinderella and that Phil was the prince. Jasper also told me that Bella looked beautiful and that she looked like a real princess. He knew that I was blind and treated me like before, I liked that.
“Here comes Bella, Alice do you want to dance?” he said. “Hi Edward” Bella’s sweet voice said at my right, “hi” I said.
“I’m so glad you could make it!” she said exited, “yeah me too” I responded, “You look beautiful Bella.”
“Thank you, you look great yourself” she replied. There was a little bit of silence. “Hey Bella I’m kind of thirsty, where’s the refreshment table?” I asked, “this way” Bella said linking our arms as she led me to the table.
“What do you want Edward, punch, lemonade, or a Sprite?” Bella asked. “punch will be nice” I said, she handed me a cup and got one for herself, while she told me all she and her mom did for the party and how she thought Alice and I might not attend.
“Do you want a mini sandwich?” Bella asked.
“Yeah sure” I replied, Bella and I sat on a swing seat, Bella told me that her dress occupied most of the seat because it was an authentic Belle costume and that her hair had taken two hours to make. We talked animatedly for a while, Bella told me more about her childhood, and some stories of her and Jasper from when she lived here. I told some of my stories with Alice; I chose them with caution because I didn’t want to tell her yet.
While we talked I felt this energy around us, it was the chemistry working between us, the pull I felt to Bella was stronger and I also felt like if I’ve known her my whole life, and I think she felt it too because she sat closer to me and her hand was touching mine…
“Hey Edward” Bella said, “yeah”
“I, um…wanted to…” she stuttered, “yeah Bella, what is it?” I asked her, “I wanted to know if you danced…” she said. I chuckled even though I can’t see I can dance, Alice made sure of that. If Bella was asking is because she wanted to dance with me. I asked her, “Well I can do that. Bella do you want to dance?” I asked her with a smile taking her hand that was on top of mine.
“Y…yeah” she replied, so we went to the dance floor, the song playing was good, Bella took my hand and we started dancing. I was one of those great songs by Lady Gaga so I danced the way I did with Alice; I concentrated on Bella, her laughter and giggles through the song. After that followed a slow song that I’ve also danced with Alice, I held Bella close to me and we danced quietly for a few minutes.
“Thanks for inviting me Bella” I told her, “no thanks to you for coming” she replied. I felt the pull to her again, the energy I felt got stronger.
Bella’s held on to me tighter, I took in her smell, her frame; she’s small but fitted perfectly on my arms, like if she was made for me. The song that followed was slow too, so Bella and I just kept dancing, we were both silent it wasn’t awkward, we were very comfortable and I was enjoying it.
After that dinner was served, so Bella and I went to find a seat. Alice found me after dinner while Bella went to the bathroom, she told me about how was her night being with Jasper and that she saw me with Bella on the dance floor; after that Bella and I went to take some pictures and then we sat on the swing again.
“Edward” Bella started “yes Bella” I said. “Do you ever take your glasses off?” she asked me, I didn’t want to talk about this now…
“No Bella, why?” I said, “Never, Not even now that is night?” she inquired. I sighed, “Just for sleeping and showering” I replied.
“Edward, I’m sorry but I don’t understand, is something wrong?” she said, I didn’t want to lose her friendship…but I just couldn’t tell her now!
“Look Bella, I promise I’ll tell you okay, but not tonight” I said. I could sense that she wasn’t going to let this go, I didn’t want to be rude to her. “You’re not going to let this go, are you?” I asked her, “nope” she said popping the p; I decided to tell her the truth, well technically.
“I have to wear them for medical reasons” I said, “what reasons?” she kept asking, “Bella please” I said, she was silent.
I took her hand in mine, “is not that I don’t want to tell you okay. You’re my friend, is just that I’m scared Bella…please I don’t want to talk about this now.” I said my voice I whisper.
Bella hugged me, “is okay Edward, I’m sorry. Tell me when you’re ready” she replied sweetly.
“Soon” I said, “soon” she stated…
The rest of the night went smoothly and comfortably, Bella and I danced more, Alice and jasper joined us and we had more fun. Bella escorted us out when we left, I kissed her hand. It had been a night to remember…
The night had been perfect, even though Edward evaded my questions. I was going to wait for his answer, the party was great and the moments I spent with Edward had been magical. I felt so safe with him, his touch peaceful…when he kissed my hand, amazing! I’ve never felt anything like this for anyone.
He had a secret, I knew but I have to be patient and wait, although it couldn’t be that bad…
Through all the night I felt this energy, something pulled me to him, chemistry maybe? Edward is a mystery I need to decipher, what could be he hiding that makes Esme behave the way she did? What could be wrong with him?
These thoughts filled my mind as I went to bed, and that was the first night I dreamt of Edward Masen…

I DO NOT OWN TWILIGHT! HERE GOES TO NOTHING
Safe in my arms:
“Hey swan” I turned around, “excuse me?” I asked it was peter; does he ever get a break? “What can I help you with?” I asked he chuckled.
“I want you to tell me, what does a guy like me needs to do to take a girl like you out?” he flashed me a smile. How cliché, I thought again, he really doesn’t get tired of my negative answers? What a masochistic dude.
“How many times do I have to tell you peter, no I won’t go out with you” I replied for the millionth time.
Peter has been asking me out since the second week of college and all the times I’ve refused, and told him no, is not that I didn’t want to go out with him…Is just that I got this weird vibe coming from him, like if he was trouble.
I don’t actually know because I haven’t given him the chance to prove himself, was I being a prude?
I also didn’t give him the chance because of Edward; I couldn’t get him out of my mind. I wondered what was wrong with him. I thought about him half of the time.
I still thought of the Halloween party, the chemistry between us was overwhelming; there was a moment during the night that I wanted to kiss him…
Peter was still there staring at me, “um peter really, if you don’t need anything I’m going to ask you to leave the front desk, I’m busy” I told him, he raised his eyebrows.
“Really Isabella, that’s going to be your answer,” He stated I nodded.
“Okay then, I guess I’ll be back tomorrow” he said leaving, I sighed.
I was confused, I didn’t know why I was rude with him, and maybe his intentions were good…?
The next day
My alarm buzzed, I groaned at the sound, my head hurt, I opened my eyes. My throat hurt and it was dry, I also noticed that I was sweating, I touched my forehead and it was hot; I was still sleepy I fell back into the pillows and sleep claimed me again…
“Edward wake up” I could hear Alice calling me, I groaned again.
“I don’t feel good” I replied, I felt her touch me and her hands were cold I sighed, the cold felt good.
“You have a fever, I’ll go get mom” she said, a second later mom was at my side, “oh my dear boy, it seems that you have a cold. Don’t worry mom will make you feel better.” She said
She sat me up and removed my shirt, “Mary call the doctor please while I get Edward in the shower”
I wasn’t feeling good at all, I needed moms help to go in the shower, she sat me on the bench and turned the cold water on, I started shivering.
“Shh, is okay mommy’s here don’t worry” she cooed me.
She washed me quickly and dried me; she dressed me on a clean set of pajamas. Alice said that the doctor was on his way, mom went to change her clothes since they were wet, “Edward I have to go to college, I have a test and an oral report” she told me concerned.
“Is okay Alice, I’ll be fine, is just a cold” I told her hoarsely.
I needed my English lit work and the rest of the classes too, I could feel that I was going to stay home for the rest of the week because mom and my doctor were panicked like that…I told Alice to get my professors office hours so she could get any paperwork, and to tell Bella to collect everything from English lit. And tell Prof. Hale that I was sick, she agreed and left before mom came back.
Dr Gerandy my general doctor saw me, he said that I had a severe cold and a throat infection, he gave mom the prescription for my medicines he also told her to check my temperature every hour and give me lots of liquids.
He instructed that I couldn’t go to school until Monday…
He said that the headache I had didn’t affect my eyes at all. After that mom paid him and led him out, after a while she came to my room with a warm plate of oatmeal done my favorite way with milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of cinnamon. A cup of tea, my medicines, and fresh orange juice with aloe and honey, it was a natural expectorant. I went to sleep again when I was done…
Edward has been sick all week, I agreed to get his lit class assignments and deliver them personally, yeah I know crazy after the way his mom treated me…I was going there tomorrow. Peter has been bothering me all week, he was behind me at the cafeteria and paid for my soda on Wednesday, he had also bought me flowers…
I’ve been worried about Edward; I decided to call him to see how he was. He wasn’t hoarse anymore; he told me that he was getting better. I was glad, I confirmed that I was going to his house tomorrow to give him what professor Hale sent him. I let him go and went to bed myself…
After dinner went to my room and took the folders with Edward’s work, my purse, and car keys, I stuffed the folders in my bag and went out. I got in my car but when I turned the key, the engine didn’t want to turn on, I turned the keys five more times and nothing, and this was great! Mom’s car was at the mechanic and Phil was at an activity from the school her worked at.
I decided to walk; it wasn’t that far from my house. I put on my jacket and started walking, everything was fine until half of the way, I was just a few blocks from Edward’s house, the night got darker and drops of rain started falling. I pulled the hoodie over my head and kept walking, ten minutes later or so a car passed beside me, it went ahead but then it slowed and backed up…it was a guy, he rolled down the window and I saw who it was…peter.
“Is that you Swan?” he asked, I kept walking; he followed on the car and made me stop, “please Swan, don’t be such a prude! It’s just a ride, I don’t bite…” he chuckled, I deliberated, it started to rain a little heavier…perfect! I couldn’t risk getting a cold, I had a test on Monday. I weighted my options.
My brain started yelling at me, telling me that this was a bad idea, telling me not to get in the car. I went against it and I got in the biggest mistake ever, but of course I didn’t know that yet…
Inside the car it was warm, peter had music playing from his iPod. I strapped in and pulled my bag to my chest, both hands around it, after a few minutes peter decided to start a conversation.
“So, you never told me if you liked the flowers or not, even though I left you my number in the card. Why didn’t you called?” he asked, I was started to regret this.
“I was busy studying” I replied he laughed, “you’re never going to change Swan” he said, I looked at him, “what you mean?”
“You seriously don’t remember me?”Peter asked I frowned, “am I supposed to?” I inquired.
“Swan, we have been on the same school since first grade” he said I looked at him again and thought…
“crap! You’re McAllister, you used to pull my hair and copy me on math!” I exclaimed I couldn’t believe I didn’t recognize my tormentor; he used to bully me all the time. He and Jasper had a few fights because of that.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” I asked “I thought you would figure it out Swan, you’re a smart girl… I correct a very pretty, smart girl” he said as he stopped the car.
We weren’t near Edward’s street yet; he unbuckled his seatbelt and moved closer to me. I had a bad feeling about this, “you’re so pretty Bella, you always were” he said placing his hand on my thigh, “um I think I’m going to keep walking now. It’s not far”
I said grabbing the handle of the door, I needed to get out, and peter saw my movement.
“NO! You’re not going anywhere, not until I’m done with you!” he moved his hand higher and grabbed my waist, he leaned in and tried to kiss me, I pushed him off.
“Please let me go” I whimpered.
“Later” he said leaning in again, he kissed me forcefully; he threw my bag on the floor some of the content spilling out. Tears started falling, maybe if I let him kiss me… And whatnot, he’ll leave me alone for good.
He then unbuckled my seatbelt and brought me closer to him, his hands were on my waist, I heard him fumbling with his pants, I froze.
I needed to get out; he was going to… I couldn’t even think of the word, after that he went for the buttons of my shirt.
I fought him off but he was stronger, “come on Bella” he said; “please let me go Peter, please!” I said with a kick, which angered him.
He raised his hand and slapped me, he cut my lip, he pushed the seat back, and then on the floor I saw it, my can of pepper spray I grabbed it while he wasn’t looking and faked to be knocked out.
He was hovering over me, he started kissing my neck and collarbone, I peeked open my eyes and his were closed, I decided to make my move I sprayed him, he yelled and covered his eyes and rubbed them.
I grabbed the door handle and opened the door; I managed to take half of my body out of the car. Peter recovered and grabbed my feet; I started kicking and yelling for help.
“You’re going to pay for that Swan!” he told me, “no girl attacks me and gets away with it” he said.
I just kept fighting him off and begging for someone to help me, as I sprayed him some more.
Jasper was driving me home after we had gone for some dessert; he had picked me up after dinner. Two streets near my house, just before the entrance of the private mansions complex, there was a car parked at the side of the road, we passed by it.
Jasper then looked through the rearview mirror and hit the brakes, “what’s wrong?” I asked “there’s a girl on the street…” he said with a gasp, “what!” I exclaimed.
“You’re not going to believe this…we have to help the girl” jasper said unbuckling and opening the door, I was confused.
“Why?” I asked,
“It’s Bella” and that’s all he had to say, “Stay here, I don’t want Mrs. Masen to kill me” he told me.
Bella had told me that some guy was bothering her, I even caught him following her sometimes, it was peter McAllister he had gone to school with us, I don’t remember how many times I’ve fought with him because he always bullied Bella. I recognized the car; I was going to keep going my way until I saw Bella. He was hurting her; I opened the driver’s side and pulled him by the shirt, “get your filthy hands off her!” I took him out of the car; Bella fell off the seat into the ground.
I punched peter a few times. “Don’t you dare to move or I’ll punch the life out of you” I went to the other side and cradled Bella to my chest; “Jasper” she whispered.
“Shhh, Bella is okay, I got you” I carried her back to my car and left her with Alice.
You didn’t need to be a genius to know that he had tried to do to her, I called the cops, they said they’ll come, I waited by Peter’s car. Alice was looking out for Bella, the cops took peter on custody, I took Bella’s bag and stuff from his car and went to mine, the other cop was tending Bella and trying to make her give her statement.
“Officer Mallory, why don’t you give Miss Swan a break? I’ll make sure she goes to the station tomorrow and answer all of your questions, I promise” I said to him, he nodded.
I went to Alice’s house, I carried Bella, and in that moment Esme came down the stairs and saw us. She was going to scold Alice for letting me in without her permission, and then she saw Bella “what is she doing here? And why is he carrying her?” Alice informed her of what happened and Esme let Bella stay.
She didn’t want to go home and asked Alice to make up something to say to her mom, I took her upstairs to Alice’s room I said my goodbyes and left. Alice assured me that Bella was going to be fine with them.
Jasper left, I went to Edwards’s room and explained what happened to Bella. I couldn’t believe that he blamed himself.
“I want to speak to her Alice, please” I nodded and went back to my room, I gave Bella some of Edwards old clothes and took pictures of her injuries, she had a bruises on her waist, and ankles, and her cheek was a little swollen. Then I led her to Edwards room, “just come back here when you’re ready to sleep” I told her.
I couldn’t believe what Alice told me, Bella had been assaulted on her way here, and all because I was sick and asked her to bring me the paperwork from literature class. I needed to speak to her; I needed to know that she was okay.
“Edward” Bella said softly, I patted the space beside me on the bed. She sat and hugged me, I froze but recovered quickly.
“I was so scared Edward, I don’t know what would have been of me if Jasper and Alice hadn’t come to my rescue.” she said in a whimper.
“Shh is okay Bella. No one can hurt you now Bella, you’re safe” I said as she clung to me, I held her tight.
“I’m never going to let you go Bella, you’re too important to me” I told her.
“Thanks Edward, you’re a great guy,” she said then kissed my cheek.
“You’re pretty great too” I told her, Bella cried for a little while I rubbed her back and dried her tears. She finally fell asleep, I laid her gently to the bed, she grabbed my shirt “don’t go” she whimpered.“Shh Bella, is okay” I cooed and lay beside her. She had a fitful sleep because she had nightmares and mumbled in her sleep.
“Protect me Edward” she said cuddling closer to me.
“I will Bella; I promise that from now on you will be safe, safe in my arms.”
