He grinned down at me like an idiot, and took my breath away. He could have it, I didn’t want it, especially after his next words. The words I had longed to hear for the past 70 years.
“ I love you, too,… sweetheart”
And then his lips met mine.
I melted into the warmth of his mouth… yes Edward was warm. Once I became a vampire, all other vampires felt like a normal human would to another human. Now humans, to me, felt feverish all the time. Not that I every really walked up to one and touch them.
His kisses were soft, and tender, and I found myself collapsing in his arms.
Holding me up, our mouths still locked, he parted his lips slightly, running his tongue along my bottom lip.
I wasn’t ready for that yet. It was too soon. I didn’t even really know if we were back together yet. I didn’t think I could handle it if we were… or if we weren’t. I was so confused.
I finally tuned back into the real world-as I pulled away from him inviting mouth- to the sound of wolf calls coming from the direction of Emmett, and Jasper.
Looking into Edward’s eyes all I saw was perplexity, and I found it obvious to understand the reason why. He didn’t understand why I had pulled away.
“Lets walk” I suggested. He just nodded his head.
We stepped outside the French doors that led out to the porch. I fingered the white wood waiting for him the speak. He seemed to understand was I wanted and came right out and asked the question.
“So want does this mean?”
I decided to act stupid.
“What do you mean?” I mumbled, pretending to be completely enthralled and the wood.
“ We kissed, Bella… and I want to know what it means… and I also want to know why you pulled away,” He said in a rush.
“ Yes Edward, I realized we kissed, I’m not stupid. It meant nothing it was spur of the moment kind of decision that we both happened to make. And I pulled away because I wasn’t ready to kiss you like that again, especially after getting so emotional earlier. I need time Edward. You can’t expect to just walk into my life, and take me back… especially when you were the one who dropped me in the first place,” I answered bluntly.
His eyes grew darker, and he was in my face before I could blink.
“ What do you mean, the kiss meant nothing,” He said, quoting me. “It meant everything to me!” He hissed the last part furiously.
“Why are you so emotionally enchanted by me?” I asked his glaring. “It was just a kiss”
“It wasn’t just a kiss, it was our kiss! Something truly special, don’t you get that!”
“No I’m afraid I don’t” I snapped back.
He groaned, exasperated.
“Bella I love you… please don’t act impassive to me because I know that you love me, too”
“ Damn, your ego has gotten big!”
“You said you love me yourself, don’t try and hide it.”
I tensed…shit… he had found the one flaw in my plan.
“ Why are you trying so hard to hate me… when it hurts you,” he whispered, trying to understand.
“Because it keeps me sane Edward… look why don’t we try being friends,” I asked putting extra emphasis on the word ‘friends’.
“Just friends?” He asked incredously.
I nodded curtly.
“Fine… just friend”
