Rating 5/5 Word Count 1492 Review this Chapter
We made it to Port Angeles in little under an hour. By the time we did reach Port Angeles I knew all the unimportant gossip about our small rainy town. Such as, did you know that Eric Yorkie asked out Lauren Mallory? I mean she is so obviously above him. Scandalous! I had also heard Mike’s opinion on a number of subjects ranging from school, the residents of Forks, and what he thought of various other topics. I was completely bored. Maybe staying by myself at home would’ve been better. As soon as I thought that though I changed my mind. It was better to be out and about somewhere Edward and I hadn’t constantly visited than in my room full of reminders of him.
We were walking to the theatre now with Mike still doing all the talking and me answering whenever I needed to. I wasn’t entirely there.
“Hey Bella, what movie do you want to see?” Mike asked pulling me out of my thoughts.
“Oh, uhh, you go ahead and pick Mike.” I really couldn’t care less about what movie we saw.
Besides, Mike was probably going to choose the latest action or thriller.
We made our way to the snack counter and I looked down at the ticket Mike handed me. When I saw the name I grimaced in distaste. Mike had chosen the current romantic blockbuster. Did he think I was going to be more susceptible to his ‘charms’ if watching a love story? It was probably going to have the opposite effect. At the counter we ordered the standard pop and popcorn then went into the darkened theatre. The movie itself was predictable. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, have to overcome some sort of obstacle, and finally the happy ending.
About half way through the movie Mike started stretching. I froze. Did Mike seriously just pull ‘the move’? He did. I tried to think of the nicest way of removing his arm. I decided on the easiest.
“Mike, I have to go to the bathroom. I’ll be right back.” I whispered. It wasn’t a brilliant plan, but at least his feelings wouldn’t be hurt.
“What? Oh okay.”
I left the theatre as gracefully as I could, which wasn’t very, but at least I didn’t trip.
As soon as I exited the theatre I headed towards the bathrooms. I was lying to Mike but I figured if I went to the bathrooms then karma wouldn’t come down and attack me. I finished quickly than slipped silently back into the theatre. When I got back to my seat Mike had something to tell me.
“Bella, your phones been ringing since you left.”
I stared wide-eyed at my bag. I doubted I would get lucky and it would be Alice again. Maybe Charlie had called. I rejected that idea. There was no reason for him to call me.
“Thanks Mike.” I whispered back only half-heartedly but he didn’t seem to notice.
“No problem, but you should turn off your ringer. People were starting to get annoyed.” Mike suggested. If it was Edward though people weren’t going to have to worry about a ringer for much longer. They may have to deal with a dead body.
“I’m going to go out and return the call. It might’ve been Charlie.” I whispered, although I knew it wouldn’t be Charlie.
“Sure, but hurry you’re missing the movie.” Mike said a little to loudly and there was a chorus of ‘ssshhs’ behind us.
I timidly headed back out into the lobby but this time with my purse. My hand went into the bag and I pulled out the phone.
Three missed calls from Edward Cullen.
He called me three times in a row? He was either really angry or really worried. I slowly dialled Edward’s cell, hoping in vain that he wouldn’t answer and I would be able to talk to him later. Preferably when there was nothing breakable around, and that was including Mike. I stopped dialling and shut the phone, debating silently to myself on whether or not to wait until later, when it started ringing. Startled, I dropped it. I quickly picked it up, flipped it open, and put it to my ear.
We were running back to Forks and I was wondering if Bella really was with Newton. She had never indicated she wanted anything more than a friendship with him ever. Although, Newton definitely wanted more. He shouted his thoughts and fantasies of Bella all through Biology. I switched topics and started thinking of ways to reach Bella. Than it occurred to me. I had given Bella a cell phone for if I was ever away.
I stopped instantly, pulled out my phone, and dialled Bella’s number so fast my fingers blurred. The rest of my family, noticing I was no longer with them, stopped to see who I was calling. They probably already knew. The phone kept ringing, taunting me with it’s repetitiveness, then I heard Bella’s angelic voice telling me to leave a message. Frustrated, I hung up and dialled again. Maybe Bella was ignoring me, but I didn’t think so. I got the machine again and heard Emmett chuckle behind me. I whirled around and glared at him.
“Care to explain what you find so funny Emmett?” I asked annoyed.
“You look you’re getting a brain haemorrhage Eddie. Calm down, I’m sure there’s a good reason Bella can’t answer her phone.” Emmett explained, chuckling again.
“I thought I told you not to call me ‘Eddie’.” I said.
“Why do you even care so much? She’s just a human girl.” Rosalie sneered at me.
“I love her Rosalie, how hard is that to comprehend?”
“Impossible.” Rosalie replied.
“You’re impossible.” I muttered under my breath, although chances are she heard me. I turned towards Alice.
“So, where is she and why isn’t she answering her phone?” I noticed that as I said this all my anger and worry slowly started to disappear. I looked over at Jasper with one eyebrow raised and he just shrugged.
“I already told you where Bella is. She’s in Port Angeles.” Alice chirped in.
I was starting to get annoyed with all of them despite Jaspers influence. Turning away from them I tried Bella’s phone again. Nothing.
“She’s perfectly fine Edward. You’re getting all worked up for nothing." Came Alice’s mental voice.
Those were the first clear thoughts she had, had all night. I tried to dig through her mind some more but the defence system was pack in place. This time Alice was singing various Christmas carols in whatever language she thought of. I flipped open my phone again starting to call Bella for the fourth time when Emmett interjected.
“Stop it bro, Bella’s going to start thinking you’re a needy fool.” He laughed again and I scowled at him.
“This is the last time. If Bella doesn’t answer I’ll leave a message.” I told him moving away from the group.
“Suit yourself.” I heard him call to me.
I punched in Bella’s number for the fourth and finally time with little hope, so I was surprised when I heard a timid reply from the other line.
“Bella.” I breathed a sigh of relief.
“Hey Edward.” She sounded nervous and I started to get worried again.
“Are you alright? You sound kind of nervous.” I tried hard to keep the worry out of my voice.
“No, no Edward I’m fine. So was there something you needed?”
As Bella said that I remembered my suspicions about Newton. I hoped I was wrong but if Bella was going out with Jessica and Angela, Alice wouldn’t feel the need to cloud her thoughts.
“So, what are you doing tonight?” I asked cautiously, not wanting to press my luck.
“I’m at Port Angeles in the theatre, hasn’t Alice told you?”
“Yes but her thoughts have been undecipherable since her vision. Care to explain?” I heard Bella gulp on the other end of the receiver.
“Edward about that-“ Bella’s voice was cut off by Mike’s. With my over-sensitive hearing I heard him ask where Bella wanted to go for dinner.
“Oh, never mind then, I can tell you’re busy. I’ll see you tonight.” I let some of the betrayal I felt bleed into my voice.
“Edward, it’s not what you think-“ Bella started but I stopped her.
“You can explain why what I think is wrong when I see you tonight.” I said deadly calm, then hung up.
I couldn’t believe Bella was going out with Mike Newton. I thought she loved me. Walking back to my family I made sure all my emotions were under control. No one paid any attention to me as I joined the loose circle that seemed to be formed around Alice. All of their eyes were fixed on her. Alice was having another vision.
“Edward,” Alice started, her eyes wide with fright and panic. “We need to get to Port Angeles NOW!!”
Alice let down all the walls and I saw her latest vision. Before it was finished I was running hurriedly towards my destination praying with every fibre of my being that for one, Alice was wrong.
