Just Another Love Story
I felt my head being snapped backwards, before the cool point of a knife dug into my throat. I could feel his sweet breathe on my neck, as he placed his hands almost lovingly against my bare neck. Will Edward lose Bella, or will their eternal love prevail? Bella might just have to make that choice....whether she's ready or not.

Rating 5/5 Word Count 1678 Review this Chapter
I glared them all, furious almost beyond words. I had listened to their stupid story with what I felt was patience, considering the situation. Inside however, my rage had been building with every passing second..
“Are you done?” I asked quietly. They let out the breath that they’d all been holding, relieved that my reaction was more or less calm. Jasper however, was the only one not relaxed, sending me nervous glances every so often. I can’t say I blame.
I took a deep breath before the fireworks really started.
“I can’t believe any of you!” I screamed fury clearly evident in my voice. “How DARE you! Especially YOU Edward!” I turned my hostile glare at him. He looked at the floor shamed face, pain written all over his face. I was going to regret yelling at him later, but I needed to let my anger out, for now at least.
“Bella, we can explain..” Alice tried. I felt myself grow calmer, until I realised it was Jasper. I’ll give you three strikes before your out. This counts as one.
“Stop that Jasper!” He jumped, clearly not expecting that reaction. I turned to round on Alice.
“I don’t want an explanation Alice! I want to know how- why you could possible do this to ME?” my voice was hoarse from all the screaming, but I wasn’t done yet. “You of all people should know how this would have affected me!”“It was the only way Bella” her voice was barely over a whisper. “You needed to trust in yourself, to see that you could do this”. Ok, I was starting to feel bad, guilty and less angry. Where had all my anger gone? Of course- Jasper. Strike two.
I snarled at him. “Jasper, stop trying to control my feelings!” I put my hands in my hair, frustrated. I took a breath, before pouring the most painful part of this ordeal.
“IM STILL WAITING! HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF I DID THIS TO YOU GUYS? IF YOU SAW YOUR LOVED ONE BEING RIPPED TO SHREDS IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES?” Their only response was silence. I could hear my ragged breathing, and my heart was pounding faster than ever.
Finally, Jacob spoke up.” Easy there Bells. It wasn’t real. I didn’t hurt him… Well except his finger.” He gave Edward a smirk, in return to the death glare he was getting.
Anger bubbled in my veins.” So you’re the one that ripped of his finger?”
Quil, who was standing behind Jacob, put a hand on his shoulder, before clearly stating, “I don’t think that was a wise move on your part, Bro”.
That did it. My vision bubbled with red. I grabbed the first thing I saw. It was some of Esme’s new cooking books. The ones she’d brought especially to cook for me.
In a flash, I hurled all the books with all my might towards Jacob and his friends. They were too surprised to even move out of way, so it caught Jacob straight in the face, Quil in the chest, and Paul on the arm. Embry managed to duck out of the way by a hair’s breath, but he still wasn’t fast enough. Jacob, caught by surprise, had slammed into the couch, taking it down with him and Paul. Embry, bad luck for him, had wound up on the floor, with a couch on top of him and two very heavy werewolves.
“OW! GET OFF ME YOU MORONS!”
“YEAH PAUL, GET OF ME YOU FATSO!” That was Jacob of course.
“I WOULD…. BUT YOU’RE HOLDING ONTO BOTH OF MY LEGS! SO LET GO!”
It was chaos for the next few minutes as they tried to sort themselves out. The rest of my family was shouting with laughter at the werewolves’ predicament. I smiled, but not because I found it funny, but because, as the saying goes- “revenge is sweet”.
When they finally stood up, I burst out laughing. There was a massive hole in the wall where the couch had hit it. It was also ripped to shreds, as were their clothes. Their hair stood up in clumps, their cheeks like tomatoes.
Paul growled at me, but was quickly matched by Edward.
“DON’T growl at me Paul! You deserved it and you know it!” My rage was back.
“Yeah I know” he muttered.” But you didn’t have to throw books at us!”
“Would you have preferred the crystal vase?” I said, with one eyebrow raised.
“NO” they said at the exact same time.
I sighed. Behind me, I heard Emmett whoop in delight.” YOU GO BELLA!”
I slowly turned. I was still pissed at him for holding me back.
“Thanks Emmett, but next time I need your help, I’ll ask for it.” He gulped and nodded. Beside him, Rosalie smirked, obviously enjoying seeing her husband squirm.“I’m sorry Bella” he muttered. I suddenly felt calm and relaxed, all the anger gone from my face. I could hear the sighs of relief from around the room. I was happy to go with it, until I saw Jasper’s face. I was done yelling, but… Strike three…and his out!
Esme’s crystal vase was in my hand within a split second. He wasn’t watching me so I had the advantage here. Alice was having a vision, so his full attention was on her. I could only guess what she was seeing. I turned and threw the beautiful vase at him. Alice, who had seen this coming, was already on the other side of the room, leaving poor Jasper to take the full blow. It shattered into a million pieces. I could feel the cuts on my arms, but I was too busy staring at Jasper’s face. It was full of shock and surprise, his mouth open.
Behind me, I heard Alice’s twinkling laugh. Everybody else soon joined in. I raise my chin in defense. “I warned you” was my simple reply, along with a shrug off my shoulders.
I felt Alice’s delicate hand on your shoulder, before she announced to the group that I was “done”. I yawned, suddenly exhausted.
The werewolves trailed out, followed by a muttered “ sorry” and a “ remind me never to harm that stupid bloodsucker in front of Bella again”.
I shrugged in response. “I’m sorry for throwing the books at you!” I quickly called. I turned and looked around the room. Wow, was all I could think.
“Wow indeed Bella” Jasper said. When I turned to look at him, he threw up his hands warily.
I couldn’t help but laugh. “I’m sorry Jasper” He chuckled too, very relieved that I had gotten over my temper tantrum.
‘I think we should better clean up this room before Esme comes in..” I trailed off as a door opened and closed.
‘Too late Bella” Edward muttered, the first words he’d said since I yelled at him. I threw myself at him apologizing profusely. “I’m so sorry, but you made me so mad. I couldn’t-“He put a finger to my lips, silencing me.
“No, I’m sorry Bella. I just wanted to keep so safe, so I played this trick on you. I didn’t think of what you’d feel when you watched it…. Can you ever forgive me?”
“ I already have” and then my lips were on him, and his on mine.
However, we were interrupted by Esme’s scream. ‘What happened to this room?” Five pairs of arms turned to point at me. They knew better than to mess up Esme’s house.
“Esme…. I can explain” I felt Edward’s hands on my hips reassuringly and smiled. Everything was ok…… for now.Meanwhile……….
“How much longer must we wait? We need to get her now, while she’s weak!” an impatient voice asked.
“And how many more times must I answer you? NOT YET.” This voice was soft and sweet, the kind that went with sugar and ice cream.
“But why?” This time it was close to anger.” We’ve been stuck in this hole of a house for weeks, waiting for who knows what”.
His words were cut off as a pale arm grabbed him around the throat. “Louis, I’ve told you not to talk to Victoria like that!” This voice was by far the most beautiful, even filled with anger.
‘Let him go, Nathan. He’s right to be anxious.”
The vampire named Louis rubbed his neck and glared at Nathan.
Nathan smiled and said. ‘Aro brings news.” Victoria’s laugh bounced of the walls.
“Excellent. Well done. Now do tell, what did he say?”
‘In one week, we must attack. She will be ours before the sun is down on that same day.”
“Are you sure? What about… what’s her name… Alice?” Victoria’s voice was puzzled. “I thought she has the gift of prophecy….”
“Oh she does my sweet” He rubbed his hands lovingly around her neck. ‘But have you so soon forgotten my power? Im disappointed” He chuckled.
Her delighted gasp once more filled the room. “Of course! By blocking her visions from us, she won’t be able to stop us, and giving her false ones instead…” She looked at him, lust in her eyes. “I knew there was a reason as to why I chose you out of all the other new born vampires’.
His ruby eyes glowed with pleasure, but it was Louis that spoke.
“I can’t wait to get my hands on Bella. They say she is as beautiful as the moon herself. What I would do to her…” He grinned impishly.
“Just be careful she doesn’t trip over your feet” Victoria laughed. Nathan joined her before opening his mouth to speak.
‘Now, here’s what I want you to do. I want you to follow my plan EXACTLY…”Thanks for reading guys! Review please. =].
