I am selfish to think that he should only be by my side and my side only! But, is that so wrong? To love him with so much passion and need that I just can’t control my feelings towards him any longer? I don’t want to see over-obsessed but this man; this being had changed my life forever.
And I will never let him go.
After the Break
Soon after the small incident, I had ushered myself back to sleep. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust Edward, believe me, I adored the guy. But, I was sure that I wanted to think for myself.
I mean, I couldn’t always go for him for answers, could I?
Now, I was sure that it was just a small hallucination, and from my lack of sleep, this was occurring. Yet, if it was a dream, why did I feel the stab of the broken twigs on the ground when I tripped?
I’m either going crazy, or it is just another flaw to add to my list. Wow, aren’t I proud of myself. Jolly.
Edward had noted my awkward silence when I awoke. Actually, I hadn’t slept much. And, he knew it. But, since we were both trying our best to not fall into any arguments, especially he, Edward has stayed quiet.
And I greatly appreciated it.
“'Morning, you.” I stiffed a soft yawn, looking at him lovingly as he sat on the distant chair in the corner beside my work-desk. I couldn’t tear my eyes away, especially on his perfect sitting stance.
He replied with his usual crooked-smiles. Oh god, how much I loved him!
I felt my blood run up to my cheeks at my speedy imagination. Seeing him either topless or without trousers— Behave Bella!
I stood from my bed, tying up my hair in a slick pony as I made my way towards him. He had crossed my path, meeting me halfway in the direction. He wrapped a cool arm around my waist, pulling him closer to him.
“Starting early, aren’t you?” I asked softly, holding my breath as the beating of my heart quickened. Nevertheless, I was enjoying it.
And, of course, he was too.
“I can’t help it...” he soothed into my ear, leaning down to plant a soft kiss at the corner of my lips, having fun teasing me.
“And you call me, a tease.” I grumbled, my arms rising up to the back of his chest for support. He knew when to make me weak… The bastard. But, I loved it.
My eyebrows furrowed as my eyes caught onto my reflection in the mirror. My arms slowly slid from his back as I began to loosen myself from his hold.
“Hold on.” I muttered, walking away from him as I got closer to my mirror.
It was odd. From far away, my reflection could’ve shown me the same old bushy image of myself every morning. Yet, at this I was horrified.
I would usually receive bags under my eyes from my lack of sleep, in which I am always aware, but to me, this was over the limit of exhaustion.
“Oh God… I look like shit—“
I stopped; looking over to his reflection in the mirror which had caused me to spun around and face him. I quirked an eyebrow, taking a step towards him.
His eyes were wide with curiosity yet still. I wasn’t sure if he was either really staring at me, or had he suddenly dazed off.
“Edward?” I called to him softly, raising a hand to run down the side of his cheek softly. “What’s the matter?”
Edward’s eyes had slowly lowered down to meet mine, silent and dazed. “Nothing.” He had replied, blinking slightly before taking my hand into his. “Nothing at all. Just, get ready for school”.
My eyebrows had knit together afterwards, nodding as a response. I really didn’t wish to argue. I was too curious to even think about it. Besides, other things were on my mind, especially the incident from the night before.
The day had been a blur. School was evermore exhausting and I just couldn’t take the fact that spring break had ended. In a way, I was relieved. But, all the while, I wished for more time to be with him.
Mike had been ever more excited to see me, which was a change from the last time we had met. He had practically ignored me after the Tri-date we had with Jacob that evening ago. Now, he was more smiles and friendlier than usual, making it harder for me to forget the fact that he had probably felt a few things for me.
Jess and Lauren had been unbelievably rude. Not that I cared, sorry. My mind was stuck towards Edward most of the day. If it hadn’t been for my extra-strict teachers, I would’ve dazed and drooled. Angela was probably the one I could still talk to other than the Cullens.
After the day had soon ended, Edward had awaited beside his Volvo, throwing his keys into the air, catching it soon after.
“Ready for some… adventure?” He asked in a sly tone, taking a few steps to close our distance. He leaned forward, placing a soft kiss at the top of my forehead.
“That depends. Will I be risking my life?” I asked back in mid-curiosity, tucking a loose lock behind my hair.
“Well, your life is always at risk, if you don’t mind me saying—“I cut him off with a slap to his arm. He chuckled before taking me into his arms, his head lowering down onto my shoulder at the embrace.
This was a Kodak moment. And I didn’t want it to ever end.
When the embrace had eventually ended, and we were driving down at his usual speed, we were in a comfortable silence. Not the ones that assured me was angered or infuriated, but ones that I was sure he was enjoying my presence in his silent mode.
He was the first to break the silence.
“So, when are you going to tell me about what happened last night?” He asked me softly, turning his eyes away from the road to eye at me.
I returned the glance with an uneasy eye, licking my lips as I tried to come up with an answer.
“I don’t really know what to tell you… Because I don’t know what happened.” I answered as honest as I could.
My hands had begun to shake, which had confused me at the moment. I was never the one to shake spontaneously, but this was weird.
“Are you alright?” he asked softly, slowing down the car as his attention was hooked completely to me.
Noting the concern in his voice, I shook my head, giving him a small smile in reassurance. “I’m fine. A little tired.”
He wasn’t satisfied with my answer, and neither was I. But, it was what we had so far. Besides, I had a feeling we weren’t through without last topic.
“It was strange…” I began, surprising him since the car had slowed down slightly as I spoke. “It seemed as though the room around me had enveloped to a stop. I-I’m not sure, I must sound… bizarre, but it was as though I was taken into another…realm of some kind.”
I knew my description had sucked, to say at the least. I wasn’t able to describe the nauseating feeling I received at that moment.
“I’m worried.” He had stated softly, even though I would’ve noticed the worrisome in his eyes either way.
And so was I. And, I had a feeling that things would get even “stranger” from what lied ahead.
When I think back to this moment… I’m realizing that I really had no idea.
