Rating 4.5/5   Word Count 1754   Review this Chapter

The bell rang, “time to go to gym.” I sighed.

“Try not to hurt yourself,” Edward said, “Or others.” He added quickly.

“I’ll try, but I think that is impossible for someone like me.” I teased.

“Nothing is impossible, love.” Edward corrected.

I guess he was right, if there are such things as vampires and werewolves, it just about proves it. “Just incase, I will be close by.” He warned.

“Skipping?” I asked as I raised one eyebrow.

“I just don’t feel like math. Everything that teacher is teaching I probably learned 50 times. Plus, Alice saw someone getting hurt with a protractor; it wouldn’t be a very good idea if I was there.”

“oh.” was all I could say. Lucky Edward, he got to miss math.

“Bye, I will see you later.” I said as I opened the door to gym. I liked the idea of seeing him later, without that thought I could never get through a day.

“Good bye, Bella.” He replied. He simply brushed my cheek with his icy hand and walked in the direction of his car, right next to the gym building, as he promised.

Even though his hand was cold, it felt like it was warm and comfortable. I somehow liked it, it felt right. But the fact of what we were doing in gym today broke my thoughts. Oh no. it was even worse then I could ever imagine. We had to play baseball.

I got dressed in the girl’s locker room with shaky hands. What if I hurt somebody? What if I hurt myself? What if……. Questions were going on and on in my jumbled up head. Edward would probably be listening. I could make a fool out of myself in front of everybody and him, although that wouldn’t be the first time.

I purposely went to the back of the line. If I got lucky, we would run out of time before it ever came to me. But I was wrong. It wasn’t even a half an hour before it reached me. I walked up unwillingly to take the bat. In my hands, it felt like a dangerous weapon.

Just one little clumsy moment without the bat, I could probably take out two too three people and myself. But with this baseball bat, I could hurt a lot of people.

STOP! I ordered myself. I am going to get through this, if it’s the last thing I do. I survived a sadistic vampire attack, I can defiantly handle a baseball game..... or maybe not.

To make matters worse (like it could get any worse) i recognized the girl that was pitching. When we were in the basketball section, I fell and took her down with me. She pitched the ball with a dirty look on her face, sneered, and I forgot to swing.

“Strike one” coach Clapp called. His face looked worried, like so many people around him. The girl had a smug look on her face and then pitched. This time I swung, but I missed the ball and mike’s head by inches.

“Strike two.” Coach Clapp called again. I could swear I heard him muttering ‘it’s almost over’.

“Sorry Mike.” I muttered to him. He was the catcher for the other team.

“That’s ok, Bella. Just keep your eye on the ball.” he encouraged. Like I haven’t heard that onebefore. But I was desperate, so I tried doing it. But I guess I am not very good at multi tasking, because I forgot to swing.

I felt a hard and painful smack on my left eye. I fell back, hitting my head in a very painful spot. I was passing out. The last thing I heard was the gym door opening, foot steps running towards me, and a velvet and wonderfully familiar voice calling my name.

*************************************

I felt ice on my eye, and Edward’s hand lying softly on my head. I opened my right eye, only to find I was in the school nurses office. “What….?” I began.

“Oh Bella, your awake. I got worried. I should warn you though, your eye looks horrid.” Edward said. I let out a groan.

“How did you know?” I asked.

“I told you I would be listening. When I saw you fall through coach Clapp’s head I didn’t think, I just ran.” Edward admitted.

I could feel my head ach and the soreness of my head. “What’s the verdict?” I asked unwillingly. Edward sighed before answering.

“A black eye and a concussion, I think. It’s been a while since I have been to medical school.” He verified.

“Wait, you have been to medical school?” I asked. Nobody tells me these things.

“Well, somebody has to keep Carlisle current.” He said.

I thought that over as the nurse came over. “You’re free to go if you feel up to it.” The nurse said.

“I’m ready. I don’t feel bad at all. I feel much better.” I insisted. I had to lie. I hate the mint green walls of this building. The nurse nodded and walked away.

“I don’t trust these people; I want to take you to Carlisle. He is not working today, so he will be home.” Edward said as we walked over to his car. It was raining and I staggered a couple times from the dizziness of my head. Edward caught me each time with a concerned look on his face. I noticed so I spoke up too not make him worry.

“I’m fine really.” I insisted. But Edward knew me better then that. I could tell he was not buying it for a second. So I decided to move to a different topic. “Do you have a da-ja-vu felling, or is it just me.” I laughed weakly as I got into the car. It was a relief to be sitting down.

“No, it is not just you, this dose remind me of the blood typing incident.” Edward agreed as he started up the car. I looked at the speedometer; Edward was driving really fast now.

My eyes skimmed the dashboard and his CD’s shoved into the tiny compartment below the stereo. That’s when I noticed the clock. “Holy crow, school already ended?” I asked in disbelief. How long was I really out for? Edward, already guessing what I was thinking, answered my question.

“Well, you were out for a little over an hour. That nurse was a bit annoyed that she had to stay longer.” he clarified. But then something came to mind.

“Oh, no! How did your family get home?” I really hope they didn’t have to run home in the rain. Great, just another reason for Rosalie to hate me. But to my relief, Edward said exactly what I wanted to hear.

“Don’t worry, Carlisle picked them up.” he said. We were already pulling up to his house. I tried to flip the mirror from the ceiling down, but Edward stopped me. “I don’t think you want to see.” He warned.

“Oh please, I think I can handle it.” I said. He took his hand off my wrist and gestured for me to look in it with a ‘have it your way’ type of expression. I flipped it down and looked in the mirror.

“Holy crow.” I whispered.

I was too shocked to scream. I looked at myself in the mirror. At least, I think it was me. The girl staring back at me had a black eye, and for a second, it looked like she survived a herd of elephants walking over her. I groaned. “I would say I told you but I don’t think that would help.” He said.

“That’s alright; I was going to look at myself eventually, anyway.” I said.

We were walking to the front door. “It really doesn’t look that bad.” he sad, trying to make me feel better. Yes it does, I thought to myself. “Carlisle, could you come here for a second?’ Edward called into the house. Carlisle was by my side in a flash.

“Bella, what happened to you?” he asked politely, but his I eyes looked unsurprised-yet curious.

I explained everything really fast to him. I just wanted to get it over with. Besides, I didn’t have to ask Alice to know that there was going to be a lot of questions like that in the near future. But Carlisle just nodded. “I suppose you want me to look at her to see if anything’s wrong, right?” he asked Edward.

“If it’s alright.”

“Yes of course. Alice can you take a brake form Rosalie and get my bag for me?” Carlisle asked to the ceiling. There seemed to be a conversation that was to quite for my ears to here.

“Rose.” Edward started to warn. Carlisle beckoned us to fallow him to the kitchen table. I sat in a chair that Edward pulled out.

i Then Alice was suddenly there handing the bag to Carlisle. The she turned to me. “Bella, you should really stay out of gym, it is a hazarded to your health. But don’t worry it will get better.” She held up one finger and her face went smooth. “Yes I promise it will.” She smiled. “I’m really sorry, but I can’t stay. Rosalie is having fashion crises.” She said as she rolled her eyes.

“And if I’m not up there, well, I don’t think I need to finish that sentence.” She said. I just nodded. I was too tired to do anything else. She quickly pecked my cheek and darted out of the room. Then Carlisle checked my head, neck, and eyes to see if anything else happened to me.

“You should be fine Bella; you just have a sore spot on your head and a black eye, which should both heal up soon. But for now, take it easy.” He directed me. Then he turned to Edward. “See if you can get her out of gym; tell the coach its Dr.’s orders.” He said smiling.

“I will see what I can do.” He said nodding.

And with that he picked me up and carried me to the door. “Good bye Bella.” Carlisle called.

“Bye.” I mumbled. Passing out takes so much energy out of me. “Goodbye Alice.” I said.

“Bye Bella!” Alice called from the top of the stairs. Then I heard Rosalie yell something at her. She ran back into Rose’s room.

As Edward carried me to his car I realized something- Even though I was going to be completely humiliated at school, it will all seem like nothing, because I have something that nobody else has. I have my true love, Edward.
