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…
