~Bella’s POV~

The rest of the week continued without any major happenings.
My interest in the strangeness of Edward and this new family
had all my concentration. As I was getting ready for the La’ Push
trip all I could think about was Edward.

As I made my way down the stairs I saw Edward standing at the
bottom with a look on his face that hinted at a smile but yet
screamed distress.

“Hey Bella, I wanted to talk to you before you left.” I smiled
he really was showing a caring side to him. Yet I still couldn’t
shake the feeling that that was more that I wasn’t seeing about his
life and this family. As he continued to speak a frown formed on my
face. “Well, I would just like to ask you to be careful. Oh, and
don’t trip.” He then smiled a crooked smile and I walked on past him.

“Oh don’t worry I wont trip.” As I walked out the door a little I
tripped a bit and as I was closing the door –my face red with
embarrassment- I heard Edwards chiming laugh.

~Edward’s POV~

I really was genuinely worried about Bella as she walked out the door,
but yet as she tripped I could not hold out the laughter. Alice had seen
a vision of her tripping. I just wanted her to be careful, I wanted
her to be safe, I wanted her to be happy, but somewhere deep inside
I wanted her to be mine.

As I sat down on the couch to lounge before I joined my family to go
hunt I realized I was not alone.

“Ah, Edward, you really do like her don’t you?” I nodded my head as
I frowned and shrugged my shoulder knowing Esme would understand. I
just didn’t know what to do about these unexpected feelings. “She is a
lovely girl. Edward, do me a favor and show her how much you care about
her. I do believe it would make you very happy.”

“I just don’t know that I can. I really don’t want this to end badly.”
She then sighed with a little giggle

“And in the process you and her are miserable. Edward, I’ve seen the way
she looks at you and how you look at her. Please, oh please just do this
for me.” She put her hand on my shoulder and I couldn’t help but nod. Esme
was really the only one who could slightly understand, although I had no clue how.

Maybe it was just her mother like intuition. I could already guess that
Rosalie would not be pleased with this. She had been fine with Bella coming
here but I knew she would not like the idea of one of us falling in love with
her, and the rest would have mixed feelings although Carlisle would be happy
with whatever I decided to do.

“I think I might just do that. Tomorrow I’ll take her somewhere special.”
I smiled feeling a little better and then got up and left with Esme to go and hunt.
