Notes:
This idea has been bouncing around in my head for sometime and I finally decided to put it on the archives. I am somewhat disappointed with some of the other stories (not all) like this there are out there so I hope mine is good. Stole the title off a MCR song name ^^ Disclaimer: Stephenie Meyer is the God who created the wonderful characters I enjoy playing with. I own nothing and My Chemical Romance owns the title.


10. Ch.10 The Confession

Rating 5/5   Word Count 821   Review this Chapter

I spent the rest of the night reading and playing against Alex. He managed to kick my butt every round. Usually I beat him but I wasn’t able to concentrate with my head full of Edward. After finally admitting defeat I went up to my room and read Wuthering heights until morning.

I got ready for school today with a pit in my stomach. Were the Cullen’s going to act any differently? What about Edward? Was I supposed to ignore them during school? I continued my silent thoughts while getting ready.

“ANGEL!!” I heard Hailey yell from downstairs, pulling me out of my thoughts. Soon after she bounded into my room looking extremely excited.

“What Hailey?” I asked as she continued to bounce up and down in my doorway.

“SUN DAY!!” Hailey shouted gleefully and I stared at her blankly.

“Hailey, its not Sunday today. It’s Tuesday.” I told her gently.

“No silly, its two separate words. Sun and Day. Do you know what that means? NO SCHOOL TODAY!!” Hailey screamed the last part and darted off to her room.

I sat down on my bed looking vacantly at the wall. No school. I had spent all morning mentally preparing myself for coming into direct contact with the Cullen’s. What a waste. Sighing quietly I got up to change into my pair of comfy black sweat pants and a purple sweatshirt. Picking up my copy of Pride and Prejudice I headed downstairs.

“I’m going out.” I told Alex and Lily on my way out of the door.

“Stay out of sight.” Alex told me like a stern father.

“Don’t worry DADDY, I will.” I said mockingly and walked outside.

Shutting the door quietly behind me I closed my eyes and took a deep calming breath. Snapping my eyes open, I abruptly took off running. I headed down a path unseen to others. Blending in, I to was invisible. Coming out of my camouflage I silently walked to the edge of the creek. I had found it while I was hunting on the day before school had started. Fluidly, I slid down to the ground and let my surroundings consume me. Right beside me I could hear the creeks soprano gurgle and babble. Far off I could hear all the sounds of the forest. I could hear the squirrels scuttling around gathering nuts and the slight breeze ruffling the leaves of the trees. Inaudibly, not wanting to disturb the forests symphony, I rolled onto my stomach and opened my book. With a quiet sigh I prepared for an uneventful afternoon.

For about an hour I lay undisturbed and then I heard a tree branch snap. Startled by the noise I instantly disappeared. Shifting into a crouch I looked into the woods to see who was interrupting my serene afternoon. As soon as I saw who it was, it took me a good five minutes to gain any sort of composure. Quietly I walked behind a tree, reappeared, and then walked forward to greet my guest.

“Edward.” I acknowledged him quietly.

“Bella.” Edward said just as quietly. “Can we talk?”

“How’d you find me?” I asked instead of answering his question.

“Well, I went and asked your family but all they knew was that you went off into the forest so I came here. I hoped to follow your scent but I couldn’t find it so I wandered around for about twenty minutes.” Edward told me and a small smile played across my face. Of course he hadn’t smelt me. I had been invisible while I was running and that cloaked everything.

“So where have the seven of you been living in the past twenty years?” I asked as I sat back down by the creek, seeing he wasn’t soon planning on leaving.

“Bella.” Edward said frustrated as he sat down beside me. “We need to talk.”

“Edward, there’s nothing left to say. Everything that needed to be said between was said twenty years ago.” I said sighing as I got up.

“Wrong Bella.” Edward said as he grabbed my arm and pulled me back down to a sitting position.

“Edward I don’t understand what you mean.” I told him confusedly. What did he have to say to me? He didn’t want me. It hurt but you can’t force people to love you.

“Bella, do you remember what I said to you before I left?” Edward asked me gently. I nodded my head mutely. I remembered exactly what he said. What did Edward hope to accomplish by bringing it up? Did he think that I forgot what he told me? Did Edward feel that I might need reminding?

“Edward, I know you don’t want me. You don’t have to remind me.” I said with a hint of the inner turmoil I felt.

“No Bella. That’s the problem. All those years ago I lied to you.” Edward told me fiercely.

“What do you mean?” I asked him suspiciously, not wanting to raise my hopes only to have them crushed.

“Bella, I love you. I always had and I always will.”
