Edwards POV :

“You’re going to kill me ?” Mike asked terrified.

I wanted to badly, but it would undeniably bother Bella for whatever reason.

“No Mike. I’m not going to kill you.”

I could hear Emmett let out a sad sigh, like a child who didn’t get something they wanted for Christmas. Mike let out a sigh of relief but he was still scared.

“I wonder what Cullen’s going to do to me? Wait, why do I think Cullen can do anything to me? He doesn’t look THAT strong.”

I smirked at Mike’s train of thought as it flowed through my head. I may not look that strong but then again, appearance can be deceiving.

“The only reason I’m restraining myself from that particular task is because Bella, for some unfathomable reason, doesn’t want me to.” I informed Mike regretfully on my part.

I was monitoring Mike’s feelings through Jasper and when I finished speaking little sparks of hope flew through Mike.

“Now Mike. “I started, “Let’s have a little talk.” As I said this I motioned for Emmett and Jasper to leave.

“You get to have all the fun.” I could hear Emmett’s mental voice complain.

“I’ll let you have some fun later Emmett.” I told him, to low for human ears to hear.

“We’ll be watching. Motion if you need us.” Jasper said and sent a wave of calm over me.

I nodded at Jasper, although the notion that I would need their help against Mike was ridiculous, and he along with a reluctant Emmett, walked into the trees.

“So Mike, what gave you the idea that Bella wanted you to kiss her?” I asked him as if his assumption was the stupidest in the world. Mike’s look of fear quickly turned to one of indignation.

“What makes you think Bella didn’t want me to?” Mike retorted.

“The fact that as soon as I showed up she started crying.” I pointed out.

“Maybe that’s because you ruined the best moment of her life. Bella loves me you know.”

My only reply to Mike’s statement was a raised eyebrow.

“God Cullen’s such a cocky, arrogant jerk. There’s is nothing Bella could possibly see in him.” I heard Mike think and it kind of irked me.

“You don’t really believe that, do you Mike?” I was answering his comeback and his thoughts at the same time.

“Why else would Bella go out with me?”

That question stung a bit because I didn’t know the true answer. I decided the best thing to do in this case would be to lie or Mike would never be discouraged.

“Bella went out with you because she didn’t want to spend the night cooped up in her house with Charlie. Bella needed something to do and you presented something.” I explained, sounding bored. “And Bella doesn’t love you Mike. If she did you would be her boyfriend, not me.”

Mike just stared at me, to angry and to stunned to form a decent comeback. Then Mike smiled and looked like he just solved a murder.

“I’ll bet Cullen’s just jealous of me. Of course Bella loves me. Anyone can see it.” Came Mike’s mental discovery soon following his smile.

I started to laugh but Mike looked at me oddly so I tried to cover it up with a cough. Or what I hope was a cough. I wouldn’t know seeing as I hadn’t coughed in 100 odd years.

“Mike, I don’t imagine Bella’s going to tell Charlie about your little ‘assault’ but if you try to kiss Bella or even touch her without her consent then I will. And only as the reason I killed you.”

Mike’s eyes widened in fright as he finally grasped the danger he was in.

“Do you understand me Newton?” I continued smoothly pretending I hadn’t noticed his expression.

Mike just nodded and started looking at the distance from him to his car.

“Can I beat him up now Edward?” Emmetts mental voice whined.

“No, but you can give his car some damage. Nothing that’s noticable on the outside though.” I told him swiftly under my breath so that Mike wouldn’t hear.

“YES!!” Emmett shouted in his head. Good thing I couldn’t get headaches. Emmett was loud.

“Well, I’ll be seeing you Newton.” I said refocusing my attention on him.

“You just- just- just stay from me Cullen.” Mike stuttered out, than ran to his car looking over his shoulder to make sure I wasn’t following.

I walked towards the surrounding forest at a human pace and let out a quiet chuckle when I heard Mike’s string of profanities as his car wouldn’t start. As soon as I was out of sight I started running towards home where my angel awaited me.

Bella’s POV:

I paced the length of Edward’s room anxiously waiting for him to return. I had no explanation for him but I didn’t care. I was just glad Edward had been able to save me from Mike’s kisses.

“Bella, are you sure you’re alright?” Alice asked again unnecessarily. “Maybe I should call Carlisle.”

“Don’t you dare Alice. I’m perfectly fine.” I told her. I knew Carlisle and Esme would find out eventually. There were no secrets in the Cullen family. I just didn’t want to be around when they did.

“Are you sure you’re not going to go into shock?” I heard the velvety voice of my dreams ask me. The words so similar to those he had spoke the night I had found out what Edward was.

“Edward!” I cried and launched myself in his general direction.

Running into Edward though, was like running in a wall. I almost lost my balance but his marble arms came up to hold me still.

“Hello love.” Edward said and kissed me on the forehead.

I sighed in delight, then Edward picked me and walked us over to his black leather sofa. We sat there for a few minutes in silence and I noticed that Alice had slipped out of the room. I turned to face Edward and could see the barely concealed hurt in his eyes.

“You’re still mad at me, aren’t you?” I asked Edward glumly.

“A little, yes.” Edward replied honestly. “Mostly because you could’ve gotten hurt but also because you went out with Mike in the first place. Do you even love me?”

I was shocked. Edward doubted my lvoe for him? I wondered if he would rather hear the truth or a careful half-truth.

“I’d like the truth please.” I looked at Edward startled as he said this.

I always wondered if Edward was lying when he said he couldn’t read my mind.

“Edward, you’re positive you can’t read my mind?” I asked unsure.

“Yes, but I can read your eyes. Now, your explanation if you please.”

I took a deep breath before starting. I wanted to get it all out quickly.

“I love you Edward, I really do. I don’t like Mike in that way at all. I had nothing to do and I didn’t want to spend the night alone at home where I would be constantly reminded of your absence.” It all came out in a rush and I hoped Edward understood what I said.

I was busy catching my breath when Edward let out a low laugh.

“What’s so funny?” I asked confused.

“That’s pretty much the exact same thing I told Newton when he asked.”

“Does this mean I’m forgiven?” I asked hopefully.

“Yes love. Now let’s get you home.”

I got easily by Charlie and went upstairs to my room where Edward waited patiently for me. I got ready quickly than made my way to bed, falling asleep in Edward’s arms and to the sound of my lullaby. I was about to drift off into unconsciousness when I heard Edward’s soft voice in my ear.

“Bella the next time I’m away, go out with Jessica or Angela."
