3. Bella's Back
Rating 5/5 Word Count 2503 Review this Chapter
The rain pounded fiercely on the windshield of my car( in typical Forks fashion), making in nearly impossible to see. The rain reminded me of things that I didn’t really want to remember though. Three months after Edward had come back… the first time, I had the weirdest idea, and it ended up leading to one of the best days of my life.
The rain was pouring from the sky like a waterfall, and the thunder was so loud it hurt my ears, but although I usually hated rain I had the oddest feeling that today would be a good day. Suddenly and idea popped into my head. I was just about to go tell Edward, when Alice burst through the door to Edward’s room and mine. I had moved in with the Cullen’s directly after graduation, but hadn’t taken Carlisle up on his offer to change me yet because Edward’s offer was constantly nagging in the back of my mind.
Alice bounded up to me a huge smile pasted onto her face.
“It will be perfect, Bella, and so ROMANTIC” she squealed and pulled me into a huge hug.
With that confirmation in mind I ran down the stairs to find Edward. STUPID! I almost made it all the way down, and then… DARN! That last step, I tripped and fell right into the arms of an angel. I smiled up at him, and then pulled myself up, and straitened my clothes. Grabbing his hand I rushed him out the door pulling him into the waterfall with me. I shoved him into the drivers seat… well if that is possible, and ran around to the passengers seat myself.
“To the meadow” I said to him, making my face as serious as possible.
“ Your wish is my command,” He said grinning, as he grabbed my hand and entwined my fingers with his.
“I love you”
“I love you, too” he replied
He drove quickly and soon we were running, or well he was running, I was clinging to him for dear life, a complete and total difference. But if my plan went right I could run my self in a couple of months. By now we were completely soaked. His shirt clung to him like cling-wrap, and from the way he was staring I was guessing mine was too. And then we danced, twirling and spinning holding tightly to one another. He picked me up and held my forehead against is. Time to put my plan into action.
He looked at me, completely baffled. Did he honestly not understand what I was finally saying? I had just said the word he had been- very impatiently I might add- waiting for, for the past three months. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, with my angel.
“yesyesyesyesyesyesYES!” I threw my head back, adding more emphasis to each yes, until I was shouting at the top of my lungs.
He eyes grew wide when he finally understood. You know you would think that someone who had already been to medical school 5 times and who passed with flying colors I might add would understand what I was saying right away.
“Really?” His voice grew quiet.
“Y-E-S-YES!!!!” I shouted so loud that I think the trees rattled. Then again my heart could just be shaking me violently.
He twirled me around in circles till I thought I would me sick. Then he put me down, planting kisses everywhere he could reach. My neck, my lips, my cheeks, my nose, my lips, my forehead, my lips, my hand, my lips. Whispering “Thank you” after each choice destination.
Reaching into the back pocket of his soaked jeans, he pulled out a small, black, velvet, soggy box. When he opened it, I couldn’t help but gasp out loud. The ring was white and yellow entwined gold with diamonds going all the way around. At the top was a HUGE! Topaz gemstone, and two onyx stone for accompaniment. I just stared at it for what seemed like an eternity.
“ Will you where it, Bella?” he asked. But when he did his voice cracked. He was practically shaking he looked so nervous. I couldn’t speak… the moment was so intense. I just held out my hand to him. He slid the ring carefully onto my finger, and then did something I never expected. He jumped at me. I froze, but his vault only pushed me to the ground, him on top of me, with just a little of his weight on me. I was in heaven… freezing with my ice-cold boyfriend, well now fiancé on me… bit in heaven nonetheless. He pushed his forehead against mine, and his soft chilly lips lightly touched mine.
“I love you”
“I love you, too”
END OF FLASHBACK
Three months later and he was out of there like a bat out of hell, and I still didn’t know why. I couldn’t see at all anymore, and not just because of the rain, but also because of a sheer film of red that clouded my vision, and leaked onto my cheeks. It took a few minutes, but soon I was sobbing so hard that my entire body was shaking, it was rattling the car. I felt hands pry mine off of the steering wheel and I was yanked backseat as John took up driving. Ali pulled me into her, and I cried onto her designer sweater. She didn’t care about the blood, she was used to it. I didn’t even realize it when we pulled up next to a large white mansion… with a huge glass window that covered the entire south side. Oh no!
I saw Bella in the cafeteria, and I almost jumped on her. I was so excited. She got a tray of food, but didn’t eat anything. It was then that I realized that it was 70 years later, and that she should be dead, wouldn’t I have seen this coming! I saw her grave as did the rest of the family, after that horrible car accident, every person in the house was devastated, even Rosalie. Edward didn’t come out of his room for two years, we didn’t see hide of hair of him. But he would seek out when everyone was in their rooms to hunt. Nobody bothered him, because we all understood. I glanced at my family to see if they had noticed her. No one had although I’m sure Jasper had felt my excitement, although I was always excited so it gave him no alarm whatsoever. I saw three other vampires walk in, and get food and go sit down next to my suspected Bella.
A girl with flat, crazy strait blond hair leaned in to tell Bella something. She couldn’t have been over 15.
“There is another group of vampires across the room”
That made all of my family’s heads turn, and we watched was my supposed Bella’s head turned around to greet us. It was her all right there was no mistaking it. We stared at each other for a few moments, but it seemed like an eternity. She jaw was slack, and she stared at us wide-eyed. Suddenly her mouth closed and her eyes narrowed and she glared at us before darting out of the room.
Edward sat there trying very hard to obviously not burst into dry sobs, but he wasn’t doing a very good job of it because I could see his body shaking. I looked over at Jasper scared of what I might find, with all the emotions he was bound to be in tremendous pain. He sat their rigid, jaws clenched, and wide eyed, breathing heavily through his nose, before clutching his chest and joining Edward in a sob fest.
We decided it would probably be best, to skip the next period, returning for the last period of the day, which we, surprisingly, all had together. Latin… in the foreign language building. Suddenly I heard a voice I hadn’t heard in 70 years.
“Come on everyone, get it the car”
I listened harder, willing the bell to ring, god I wanted to see her.
“Minnie get in the car”
For once the bell decided to be gracious, and it rang. I jumped up and ran over to the rest of my family who were already stand next to the door, obviously ready to go.
“Guys don’t run up to her, se already very shaken as it is” Jasper said quietly.
We walked quickly, and burst through the door only to find her eyes already trained on us. She glanced away quickly.
“ Minnie…please… get in the car,” She was begging.
We got closer and I was trying hard not to run up and hug her. She sounded like a sad puppy.
“ Minnie… please, please… get in the car!!” She was down right desperate now. The girl named Minnie turned to glare at her.
“ Bella, you need to talk to him, you can’t just ignore him… or them…. Ugh! You just can’t ignore them forever you know” She said aggravated. I silently agreed with her, but what Bella said next broke my dead heart and I could only imagine what it did to Edward.
“ I can and I will… watch me,” She growled at her “Get in the car… NOW!” Minnie glided into the car muttering something. I caught the words “Idiot” “ridiculous” and “love”, but couldn’t quite put that together the right way. I wasn’t so sure if I should say anything, but none of my siblings seem to want to… especially Edward, so I took the leap.
I saw her visibly stiffen, and Jasper inhaled sharply. He leaned down near my shoulder. “Alice, she is really hurt and angry, I think you should just leave it,” he warned me through clenched teeth. He was trying to fight whatever emotion she was having and it wasn’t working to well, because his eyes were pitch black. I decided to ignore him, after all this time she was my best friend, and I needed her. I refused to let her go again, no matter what Edward said.
“ Bella… I really wish you wouldn’t ignore us…please”
Suddenly she whirled around, and I was too shocked to say anything, apparently so were my siblings, because eyes were all red, I mean everywhere. There was no white anywhere, and no black, just a solid wall of red in between her eyelids, and blood was streaming down her cheeks. At first I was, like the rest of my family, afraid that she was hurt, not that that was really possible, but then we realized, they were… tears.
“ What… like you ignored me? I don’t want anything to do with you anymore. STAY AWAY… from me and my family!” She growled and hissed at us glaring. If looks could kill, we would all be dead. She looked at each one of us individually, well all except Edward. Her eyes rested on mine, all of us were too shocked to move. And with that she stormed off to her car, wiping the blood off her cheeks with the back of her hands. She drove away refusing to look at us. We were all hurt, because we all had a special bond with her, even Rosalie who had grown to love her a sister after Edward had left the first time. We all stood there our mouths hanging open as we watched her taillights recede into the rain.
After we had regained from the shock of Bella’s words, we walked to the car, and got in. Edward drove us home in silence and we all thought about Bella. We had hurt her I know, and how Edward had possibly talked us into moving away from her again I couldn’t even remember. Especially Rose. Rose had really grown to love Bella, and was heartbroken when we had to leave, although both her and Alice perked up a little when we mentioned the shopping experiences in Seattle. We had really hurt Bella, and I finally understood. I was planning on beating Edward to a pulp the next chance I got, and from the look Jasper was giving him, I had a feeling he would be joining me. This would be fun. Edward groaned no doubt from my train of though… he had better run. DO YOU HEAR ME EDWARD! RUN!
I had been busy repainting the kitchen, not that we ever use it, but being stuck in the house all day, can make you go a little crazy. Suddenly the door burst open, and all five of my children filed into the house each one sobbing… even Emmett, which I didn’t think was possible.
“What’s wrong?” I asked carefully, scared of the answer.
Alice said smiled a little through her invisible tears. “Bella’s back”
I had felt vampires enter the town, and knew right away who it was. I was excited that we would get to see Bella again, that is if she wanted to see us. I had gone to the school this morning and talked to a vampire named John, and we set a meeting to more formally them. Well mostly to see Bella, but I invited her entire coven to come along. I was driving home from work, when my cell phone rang. I picked it up.
“Hello Dr. Carlisle Cullen, how may I help you?”
“Carlie, oh thank god! Is it true, is Bella really coming back?!”
It was Esme
“ Yes sweetheart we are meeting the entire coven tonight”
“Oh my Gosh! I have to put away my paint and clear the living room! So mush to do!” I love you honey, bye” and then the dial tone.
“Bye sweetheart” I said into the now disconnected line, as I pulled into the garage. Bella’s coven was about two minutes away.
How could John do this to me! This was immoral and wrong. He knew I was hurting and yet deliberately set up a meeting to go see them. You see, John has a special talent, like myself. He had a mix of Edward and Jasper’s Talent. He could feel your emotions and catch you train of though, but not the actual words. He knew I didn’t want to see them, and yet he deliberately did this.
I grabbed a wet one from the glove compartment, and scrubbed the red stains off my cheeks, and my vision soon cleared back to normal. Ali was peeling off her blood-drenched sweater to reveal and pink lacey blouse underneath. John grabbed Ali’s hand, and Minnie grabbed mine and we slowly made our way up the steps and to the front door, of the place I had last had my heart ripped out of my chest.
