Edward’s POV

Maybe she would ditch that jerk of hers…. butt she would probably hate me… All these thoughts were raging inside my head ever since Alice had told me her vision. OH, to kiss Bella again. This time with real passion, I didn’t have to break away anymore because there was no fear of me killing her for her blood. I needed Bella. I had to have Bella. I would make that vision come true no matter what the cost.

The cost. What if Bella regretted the kiss? What if she hated me for jeopardizing her relationship with that jerk? I couldn’t bear to lose her again, not if there was a chance we could be together one day. But, it would be better to friends with Bella if she didn’t hate me than to have her break up with the Jerk and never speak to me again. Done. It’s decided. I would not kiss Bella. I would wait for her as long as it takes.

Bella’s POV

It had been a week since Edward had shown up at Forks High and I was starting to get used to him being there. I had not spoken to anyone except Alice, but I wanted to. Next week was Spring Break, so we all decided to have the wedding then, all the Cullens were invited, but we were supposed to go over to their house for the rehearsal dinner. It would be the first time I would see Carlisle and Esme and the first time I could talk with the rest of the family. Throughout this week I realized my only problem was with Edward, and I wanted to talk with Emmett especially, I had missed my big brother.

Evan’s POV

Thought this past week, Bella has been through so much, but I couldn’t help her. What can you say when your fiancé’s ex-true love suddenly appears? I wasn’t the jealous type, but I couldn’t help feeling protective of Bella and if it came to a fight I would fight hard for her. She was upstairs right now in our room. I hadn’t talked with her about what had happened yet, for fear I might upset her, but now seemed like the right time. I walked up the stairs and went into our bedroom.

She smiled as I walked in and said, “ Hey stranger, I haven’t seen you lately, you’ve been very quiet.” She walked over to where I had standing and put her arms around my neck.

“ Ya, I know I was hopping we could go for dinner in Port Angeles tonight to talk.” I leaned in and put my arms around her tiny hips.

“ That sounds great! I know this week has been very stressful on everyone, and I am sorry for that, but I appreciate you being there for me.” She gave me a long kiss and slipped her tongue into my mouth. I did the same. God it felt good, but I finally broke away.

“ I have an idea on how you can make it up to me.” I said seductively.

“ Really? Do I need to change my clothes for this little adventure? “ She replied coyly.

“ Actually this activity doesn’t require any clothes.” I whispered as I led her to the bed.

“ How convenient.” she whispered back and I started kissing her all over. I lowered her to the bed and we melted in each other’s embraces.

Later that night, as we were driving to Port Angeles for our date, she looked very distant. I could only imagine what she was thinking about, but if I had to guess, she was thinking about that guy. Edward. His name sounded like a hiss in my mind. This is why I wanted Bella to come with me tonight, because with our wedding coming up, I wanted to make sure she was not going to back out.

Bella’s POV

Evan and I were in the car on our way to dinner, but all I could think of was Edward. After my afternoon with Evan in bed I couldn’t stop my mind form wondering what it would be like to make love with Edward. Bad Bella!! Very, Very, VERY bad Bella!!!

I loved Evan, honestly and truly loved him. I knew he would never hurt me because he loved me too. Not like Edward. Sure, he said he loved me, but it was all a lie. An amazingly beautiful lie, that I wished he had continued. He left me scary and damaged and it was Evan who had finally put me back together so I could love again. I sometimes wonder though, if Edward and me, if it was all a lie… than why did it feel so right and why did I feel so loved?

Evan’s POV

As we arrived at the restaurant, Bella got this stony look on her face and looked around quickly.

“Bells, what’s wrong”

“ Nothing,” she said quickly, composing her features into a forced smile, “ I’ve been here before that’s all.”

“ Oh, do you want to go somewhere else,” I whispered so the hostess, who was looking at us expectedly, couldn’t here.

“ No, no it’s fine.” she assured me but her aura told me she was lying. It was a handy power, I have to say.

I waited till the hostess had seated us to say, “ Bella, I know your lying. Why can’t you tell me?”

“ Oh Evan, it’s really fine, it’s just Edward and I went here on our first date.” She said very quickly so to lighten the impact of her words. It didn’t help.

“Oh.” I said stone-faced. Her aura was a murky blue-purple so I knew she was worried and slightly embarrassed.

“ But I don’t care, anyway.” she pleaded.

Our waitress came around and we both ordered cokes to appease her, and I decided to just get to the point.

“ This past week I have been very patient with you and this whole meeting-your-ex-true love-for-the first-time-in-100-years thing, but I think I deserve the truth. Do you still have feelings for him? And if you do, what are you planning to do about it?

Bella’s POV

Evan’s words shocked me, but I could understand where he was coming from. My mind was racing. I did owe Evan the truth, no matter what it is, but did I even know the truth. Yes, I did. In my heart I knew I still loved Edward as fiercely as I did when he took me to the meadow, but I could not forgive him for not loving me back and for leaving my to deal with a broken heart.

I answered so quietly that no human could ever hear, “ Yes, I still love him”

He answered hopelessly, “ I see. So this is it then, after 50 years our relationship is going to end in a little over a week?!?!” He was starting to get angry.

“NO!” I said still whispering, “I love YOU! I want to marry YOU. But I have been loving and hating Edward for over 100 years. It is hard to let those feelings go, especially since he has come back.”

“ Whatever.” he said glumly.

“ Evan, listen to me, I don’t know what is going to happen this next week, but whatever does happen I will need you and I truly love you.” I was begging now, and as he looked up I smiled my 100-watt-smile and he gave a small smile back. He leaned across the table and kissed the top of my head.

As we were driving back, I was pretending to stare out of the window, but really I was thinking about Evan’s words. “Do you still have feelings for him? And if you do, what are you planning to do about it?”

Good question. I really wanted to love Evan more, but every time I was sure I did, Edward’s face kept appearing in my mind. What was I going to do?
