Summary:
This is a new fanfic I am going to write. I know that my second one didn't follow the story line or really make sense (It was actually more like a new story), but now I've read Twilight and have a better understanding. I hope you enjoy!

I watched her toss and turn in her small, cluttered bedroom. She kept mumbling "Edward...No Edward...James will...kill you..." I thought she must have been remembering that day. That day when she was almost killed. It disturbed me to see her this way, but I couldn't wake her up. She hated it when I watched her sleep, but I did it anyways.

"Edward...it's...behind you..." She mumbled. I didn't remember aything behind me in the dance studio. First of all, I would've sensed it, and second of all, that room was nothing but mirrors. I figured it must be her nightmare taking effect, so I shrugged it off, but it still made me think.

'What is it?' I thought. Now it was eating away at me. I tried to shake it, but couldn't, so I just ignored it. Bella stopped mumbling, so I departed. When I got home, I found Alice waiting for me. I knew what she was going to say.

"I know, Alice. I listened to her sleep talk. Do you think it's a threat?" I asked, trying to stay calm. She scratched her pale chin and pushed a hand through her short, black hair.

"Maybe, but you and I both know it can't be for sure." She said sternly. I wondered if she told Carlisle yet, or worse Esme. It would break her heart if she knew either me, or worse, Bella, was in danger.

"Who have you told?" I asked firmly. She smiled at my apparent annoyance.

"Emmet, and Jasper. I figured Rosalie would throw a party if Bella died, so I kept it from her." She giggled a little at her own joke. I didn't find it funny, so I continued into the house. I walked to the piano and started to play Bella's Song. I kept playing it until morning, because I couldn't stop thinking about her.

The next morning was a Saturday, so I had nothing to do but go see Bella. I ran to her house and jumped into her window. She was in her pajamas, choosing clothes.

"Ahh!" She screamed as I appeared in her room. "Stop doing that Edward! You know I don't like it!" She said, placing her hands on her hips. I chuckled, staring at her flushed cheeks and brown hair that went to the bottom of her shoulder blades. Her lips were curled in what she must have thought was a scolding look. This made me laugh even more. I walked at her human speeds toward her and kissed her gently.

My lips suddenly felt like they were being warmed by a fire, which I rather enjoyed. I kept them there for a few seconds and pulled away. I listened to Bella's heartbeat intensify, as I kissed her. This always happened, but I've gotten used to the rythm by now. I wondered if I should make her another song where the beat started out slowly, but intensified as the music became more lovely.

"But you can do that as much as you feel like," She said, dazed. She smiled at me, and I couldn't help but smile back.

"What do you want to do today?" I asked cheerfully. It was July, so it was sunny out, but if she decided to go to the field I would be willing to stay outdoors.

"Well..." She looked out the window, probably considering the sun and my...condition. I smiled, trying to convince her that I could go outside in some places, but I didn't want her to feel forced.

"Well we could go to your house, unless you want to go to the meadow?" She smiled. Maybe she's the one that can read minds. I smiled and swooped her out the window and into my silver Volvo. I revved the engine and backed out.

"Seatbelt." I told her. She looked at me, telling me she knew, and the slight click made me feel safe. I drove off down the forested road. I got to the trail finally and came to a stop. I got out of the car and walked towards the trail. I turned around and waited for Bella. She closed the door and walked forward with a smile. I ran behind her and got her on my back.

Her eyes widened in fear. "Don't you dare..." She said angrily, but I could hear the fear in her voice. I got her off my back and held her to my chest.

"Close your eyes..." I whispered. And then I was off. I jumped from tree to tree, narrowly avoiding branches that could kill Bella if she was hit by one. I finally got to the final tree and jumped into the sun, my skin now sparkling like a diamond. A somersaulted to the ground and poked Bella gently. The last thing she needed was more broken ribs.

"Is it over?" She asked like a little girl that had just seen a horror movie. I laughed and plucked her off my chest.

"Yes, Bella, the Attack of the Jumping Vampire is over." She opened her eyes and glared at me.

"How many times do I need to tell you not to do that?! I hate moving that fast! Some day you are going to end up with my puke all over your shirt!" She said sternly. I laughed heartily, almost falling to the ground. She still kept her stern look, but then she started to resist the laughter, until she exploded with laughter, like I was.

"Well," I started, "What are we going to do? Do you have any more questions?" I asked. She thought for a moment and then finally replied.

"Nope. Alice cleared everything up...at least I think so." She said, smirking. Alice. I was going to get her back one day. I sat down and took of my jacket. I wore a tank-top that day, because I thought Bella might enjoy it.

"Well then what do you suggest?" I asked casually. She sat next to me and laid her head on my chest. I enjoyed the warmth, and laid my hand as gently as possible on her head.

"Have you ever been cloud-watching?" She asked. I had heard of it, but never thought of actually doing it. It sounded more monotonous than school, really.

"No." I replied simply. She got that look on her face, and I knew she was thinking of something. Unfortunately, I didn't know what, like I did when it came to everyone else.

"Well, this is your first lesson," She said like a school teacher, suddenly sitting up straight. She pointed to the sky. "You will look at the clouds and tell me what you think they look like." She chuckled and put her head back on my chest. I sighed, put my hands behind my head, and laid down on the emerald grass. She was still on my chest, I think trying to sleep, but I don't know how she could with me shining like a flashlight in the dark.

"Well," I said, "I see...clouds." This was the truth; all I saw was clouds. Nothing else. She sat up and looked at me sternly.

"No, no. You're doing it all wrong!" She criticized. She pointed to a cloud in he sky. "That looks like an ice-cream cone," She pointed to another. "That looks like a puppy. You get it? You try and find what the shapes in the clouds remind you of!" She smiled and laid back down. I sighed.

"That one looks like an apple." I said pointing to a different cloud. She giggled and for the rest of the time we lay there, picking out clouds and just talking.
