“You sure you really don’t want to come?” I asked him for hundredth time. “I’ll miss you …”
Our biology class was going to an exposition in Seattle. But, for the first time, Edward had refused to come with me, telling me that he had decided a week before to hunt with Emmett. I didn’t know why but I was kind of scared to go without him.
He sighed, sat me in his lap and kissed my forehead.
“You know I can’t, I would love to go with you. I would go to hell with you.” He smiled his crooked smile. God, I love this smile!
“Beside, nothing bad is going to happen. Alice had no vision yet…”
“Too bad for you, I will be all day with Mike, who knows what’s going to happen, between us-“
“Nothing’s going to happen.” He cut me, putting his lips on mine. Thirty seconds later, he fell back on the black leather couch and closed his eyes. “I hate to leave you alone, even one day, you are so clumsy…”
“Not only am I clumsy, but all the guys are after me!” I said smiling. His eyes shot open.
“You wouldn’t dare! “ he asked getting serious.
“Who knows? Maybe someone can kiss me better than you can, who knows?” I said laughing.
A huge grin appeared on his face. “I don’t think so…”
“ You are just soooo pretentious, Edward Anthony Mason Cullen ! “ I said slapping him hard on the chest, even if he didn’t feel it a bit.
He smiled again and looked at the clock on the wall, a disbelieving look appeared on his face. “ Do you know what time it is ?” he asked me.
“ No , but you are going to tell me.”
“ It’s two o’clock in the morning and you are going to school tomorrow ! What is going to think Charlie ? ” he screamed getting up from the couch.
We looked at each other and we both ran to the door in the same time. He threw the door open for me and I ran down the stairs the first not even seeing Alice, who was reading on the last step.
I tripped on her, screaming and falling head first. She was like a stone wall. She gasped, surprised and horrified in the same time, her book falling from her hands.
“ BELLA !” screamed Edward running down the stairs, at vampire speed.
He pushed away Alice, who couldn’t believe what was happening, and caught me just before my head hit the ceramic ground. Completely chocked, I couldn’t breath. He scooped me up as I was gasping for air.
“ God ! You scared the hell out of me!” he said relieved. He looked down at me and saw that I was out of breath. “Bella? Are you okay? Talk to me!”
I couldn’t even answer.
Alice went next to Edward and looked at me, definitely scared. “Bella, what is it?”
I took a deep breath and finally answered. “I – I thought I was going to die …” I whispered.
Pain filled Edward’s face. “Oh Bella, honey…” He looked at me intensely. “ As long as I exist , you will be safe. I promise you.” He said solemnly, kissing my forehead.
“ I know, you are my guarding angel…” I whispered back. He just smiled at me.
Alice was clutching her heart like if she was going to have a heart-attack (which she can’t).
“When I saw you falling, I thought I had killed you during a second…” she said. “Edward, please remind me of never read in the stairs while Bella’s here.”

I woke up with the light blinding me. I closed my eyes back, moaning , my face on my pillow.
“Wake up sleeping beauty! “Whispered an angelic voice in my ear.
“ What time is it ?” I asked the angel, my voice muffled by the pillow.
“ The time to hurry, you are already ten minutes late for school.” He answered.
I stood up, angry. “What the hell? Why didn’t you wake me?”
A huge grin appeared on his face. “You were just so beautiful.” He seemed to think a second. “Maybe also because I’m not going with you .”
I sighed and threw my pillow at him. “You are just so selfish!”
I took the first clothes I found, ran to the bathroom, put them on, brushed my teeth and ran to my truck.
As soon as I heard her truck pulled off, I stood up, feeling weird. She hadn’t kissed me goodbye. I sighed and jumped out of her window.
I walked slowly to my home, sad and already missing her.
I heard a scream coming from my house and rushed to it, at vampire speed. I threw the door open and saw Alice sobbing loudly in Jasper’s arms, who was asking her what she saw. Rosalie was standing upstairs, holding Emmett’s hand, both looking frantic. Carlisle was kneeling in front of her , asking her , like Jasper, what she saw and Esme was rubbing Alice’s arm.
I ran to them, pushed away Carlisle, took Alice’s face in my hands and asked her what she had seen.
“I-I saw her die…” she said sobbing heavily and looking away from me.
“WHO ?” I almost screamed.
Jasper growled. “Relax Edward!” I ignored him and asked her again.
“ WHO HAVE YOU SEEN DYING, ALICE ?”
“Their-their bus crashed a huge truck. Bella died.”
Everyone gasped in horror and a fraction of second later I was out the door.
I ran to the bus that was already closing it’s door, ready to go without me. I knocked on it real hard and the driver opened them. I smiled to him. “Thank you.”
He just nodded and after I was in, he closed them again. Mr Banner looked at me and shook his head, desperate. The only place left was on the one on the front. I crawled to the window , put my head on it and relaxed.
