I walked away from Bella more terrified that I cared to admit. I didn’t know what I should do, till I heard Alice’s gentle thoughts through the mundane idiocy that was teenagers. “Don’t fret so Edward. I promise Bella will be safe. Follow our scent back to our home.”
I didn’t know if I could trust this Alice. I didn’t know if Jasper would lose control, dammit I just didn’t know. What the hell was I going to do?
“Edward.” I turned around to see Bella.
“I should’ve known you would worry too much.” She said. I looked at Bella with so much pleading in my eyes. If my hair could turn gray there would be no bronze hair left.
“Bella I’m so terrified to leave you here, I don’t know if I can leave you with them. What if Jasper -”
“Edward! Calm down.” She took my hand in hers and gently moved her other hand to my cheek and I breathed in her wonderful, calming scent.
“Bella how can I just leave you alone with them?”
“Edward, just trust me, just this once. I will be fine.” I close my eyes reveling in the warmth of her hands and her delicate and soft touch.
“Bella.” I sighed.
“Remember my promise Edward. I said I would be safe and I mean it.”
“Alright Bella. But if anything happens-”
“Edward! Nothing is going to happen. Don’t be such a pessimist. I will be fine. If it’ll make you feel better I will meet you early. Right here. Okay?”
I sighed again and pulled her into my cold embrace. I didn’t give a damn that her scent drove me mad. I just wanted to hold her. “Please hurry Bella.”
“I will be out her faster than you can run.” I laughed at that.
“Be safe Bella.”
“Yes Edward. Now go before the principal calls the police on you for trespassing.” She gently pulled out of my embrace and I felt like she was leaving the protection of my arms. As long as she was in my arms I would never let anything harm her.
I watched her till she was out of sight. I decided to take Alice’s advice. I followed their scent back to their home. It was such a strange concept “home.” I’d never known a home since I was human and even then I didn’t feel as if I truly belonged. I hadn’t found “home” till I found Isabella.
I followed their scent till I found a beautiful white mansion. I smelled the scent of one vampire. I listened to their thoughts. “Carlisle said we should expect visitors tonight. Of course we could all smell his or her scent from coming here. I just hope everything ends well.”
I left when I noticed the time. I had no idea how long I’d been standing there and the female seemed oblivious to my presence. I ran back to school and stood by Bella’s red truck waiting for her. I tuned out all the idiotic thoughts of these hormonal, selfish teenagers.
Finally I saw her walking towards me smiling.
“See I told you I would be out here faster than you could run.” I laughed. I was so relieved to have her standing beside me in perfect condition.
She rolled her eyes and got in the truck while I got in on the passenger side.
“Bella I’m so happy you’re okay.”
“Edward if you could have panic attacks you would be a medical miracle.” I laughed again and she smiled at me.
“So what did you with yourself while I was at school?” She asked.
“I found the Cullen home.”
“Okay let me stop at my house and tell my mom what I’m doing and we can head on over there.”
“Of course.” We drove in a comfortable silence; I hopped out of her truck faster than she could blink, I didn’t want Renee to see me, not that it matters I just let half the population of Forks see me in the cafeteria. Word never travels faster than in a small town.
I wandered around in the woods till I heard the start down the road. I saw Bella stop and I jumped in the passenger side. “Renee asked about you and I didn’t know what to tell her.”
“I don’t know what to tell her either.” This could be very problematic.
“I’m sure we’ll think of something Edward.” We drove in another comfortable silence but I couldn’t stop myself from staring at her astounding beauty. She never saw herself clearly and I had to stop myself from murdering the teenage male population of Forks every time they glanced in Bella’s direction.
“Do I have something on my face?” I laughed.
“No Bella.” She was perfect just as she was.
As we pulled into the driveway I noticed Bella’s stunned expression.
“Wow.” She breathed.
“It does have a certain charm.” I mused.
“That it does.” She said.
I grinned as she cut the engine and we climbed out of the truck. As she walked to my side of the truck I grabbed her hand. She looked at me and smiled reassuringly as she squeezed my hand.
We walked up the porch steps and just as I was about to knock, Alice exuberantly opened the door.
“You came! I knew you would!” She exclaimed enthusiastically. This should be quite interesting.
