2. He Played Piano For Her

Rating 4.5/5   Word Count 863   Review this Chapter

I couldn’t move. Victoria was here, it would take less than a second for her to kill me.

Suddenly she was gone. I heard my lullaby coming from my stereo. I looked down at my hand and the CD was gone.

Victoria was standing in front of me again. She looked miserable.

“James used to play the piano for me…” she whispered.

I realised I had taken away her Edward. I knew he was trying to kill me but I suddenly felt over come with guilt. I imagined if someone tried to kill Edward. I wouldn’t care if Edward was a murderer, I couldn’t deal with him dying.

Victoria slapped me, hard. So hard I fell to the ground.

“Your boyfriend will pay!” she screamed. She didn’t look sad anymore, she looked furious.

I crawled over to the foot of the bed.

“Please,” I begged, but I knew it would do no good. It seemed to please Victoria that I was scared.

“Edward’s coming here! He’ll kill you for this!” I screamed, though my voice wasn’t quite as loud as I hoped it be. This was the wrong thing to say. Victoria smiled.

She was kneeling beside me now.

“Then he will come to find your dead body! As for him killing me, he already did… in Phoenix!” she whispered in my ear. I felt horribly guilty again; I knew how it felt to be away from Edward, how would I feel if he was dead?

The window opened again.

“Edward!!” I shouted, but then I saw it wasn’t Edward. It was Jacob.

Victoria sniffed the air.

“You have me surrounded?” she laughed. “It won’t do any good. I’ll just kill her now!”

“If you do, it’ll be suicide!” Jacob cried. I could see he was shaking with rage.

“I’m already dead,” she whispered. She put a hand around my neck, and I shivered under the cold. Again I heard the window open.

Within seconds Victoria was pinned to the ground beside me. Edward was there, my Edward.

“Run!” he growled at me.

I couldn’t move, but Jacob lifted me up. He nodded at Edward and Edward nodded back. They had forgotten their differences for the moment. Jacob took me over to the window.

“I love you Edward…” I whispered.

“I love you too.” Edward replied. Victoria let out a menacing growl, and Jacob jumped out the window. I looked up at his face, he was frowning.

“I’ve missed you, Jake,” I whispered. He looked down at me, his expression unreadable.

Then the rest of the pack surrounded us.

“Help Edward!” I cried. Jacob nodded and then went. Jacob put me in the passenger side of my truck, and then he jumped in the driver side. Neither of us spoke while he drove. He drove to La Push. Then he stopped the truck, and turned off the ignition. He was squeezing the steering wheel.

“Jake…” I started, but I was at a loss for what to say.

“What Bella? What?” he demanded angrily. I was a bit taken aback by his answer.

“Are you mad at me?” I asked quietly, afraid what the answer would be.

“You…choose a bloodsucker…over me!” he said, spitting out each word. I couldn’t argue over that, there was no one I would choose over Edward. We sat in silence for another while, with Jacob trying to calm himself.

We waited. And waited. Then I remembered Charlie.

“Charlie!” I said thoughtlessly.

“Sam’s taking car of it.” Jacob mumbled.

While I was wondering what he meant, he suddenly jumped out of the truck. I got out, too. Then I saw the rest of the pack coming out of the woods. I couldn’t see Edward.

When they got closer, before Jacob or them could say anything I asked “Where’s Edward?” and my voice broke half way through.

“Still alive…not sure where he is though.” Paul answered.

“Damn…” Jacob muttered, and laughed. The whole pack joined in.

“Jake…you wanted Edward to…die?!” I whispered. He didn’t answer but I could see from his face it was true. And then I couldn’t hold it back any longer. I burst into tears.

“Crap,” I heard Jacob mutter.

Then I felt two cold arms around me. I stopped crying.

“Edward!!” I cried.

“I’m here Bella,” he soothed.

“You are not allowed here,” someone from the pack growled. I didn’t look up to see who.

“We’re leaving now.” Edward replied.

“Don’t come back. You’re not welcome here!” Jacob snarled.

“Can’t you just be happy for me?” I asked Jacob.

His answer was quiet but I still heard it “No…”

Edward carried me back to the road, where his silver Volvo was parked. I jumped in, slamming the door. When I looked back, the pack was walking away. Though I didn’t want to admit it, Jacob really hurt me. When I saw Edward beside me, I forgot all about it.

“I love you, Edward.” I whispered.

“I love you too, Bella.” he replied. Then he leaned down to kiss me.

When we got to the Cullen’s house we saw Alice standing outside. Of course she would have seen us coming. She looked like she was crying. When I got out of the car, Edward put an arm around me.

“Charlie…” Alice said. Oh no, there was something wrong with Charlie! I felt tears bubbling up. Edward tightened his grip on me.

“Looks like Victoria had some friends…” Edward whispered, almost too low for me to hear.
