Finally class ended, so I could get away from the awkward feeling being around him was bringing me. I got up from my seat and started to gather my stuff. For some reason Edwardlingered at his desk and took his time gathering his books when he could have easily rushed out the door in faster than a blink of an eye. When I finished gathering my things I walked out of the room as fast as I could without tripping over something or someone. He followed me out.
I started walking slowly toward sixth period. That way he would easily have time to stop me and talk to me. If he wanted to. I was about seven yards away from the class and he still hadn’t stopped me. My hopes dropped. I thought it was safe to look back. Boy did I think wrong. He was still standing there. Staring at me. I saw Alice walking our way from a few yards away. When she caught up to where Edward, I saw her lips start to move, and he looked away from me. I turned and started heading to my next class.
When I took my seat, Alice walked gracefully through the door. There was more staring. I wonder how long the staring would last. I was also curious about what she had said to Edward. When she sat down, I was about to ask, but then she started talking.
“Hey. Can you believe people are still staring at me? I mean, come on.”
“Um, yeah. Really.”
Then he walked into the classroom. Oh no! I’m so glad I didn’t have to face him alone in two classes. Maybe it won’t be so awkward with him here since Alice is here and sitting next to me. Not him. Just breath. Wait, how does that go again? Oh, right. In- out. In- out. In- out. Ugh. Why is this happening to me?!?! Why does he have to have such a big affect on me?!?!
He started walking back towards us. Why? The only empty seat was in the front of the room. Right? I looked at the two rows behind me. Oh no! There were two empty desks right behind Alice‘s and mine! Okay people. No need to give me my space now. I’m not a zombie anymore. Someone come take those seats! Too late. He sat down in the one behind Alice.
“Hey,” he said. I thought he was talking to Alice so I just stared straight ahead. Alice didn’t say anything. She just gave me a questioning look. Then Edward spoke again.
Did he say ‘ Hey’ to me? I turned around, and sure enough he was looking at me, again. I was starting to get really self- conscious with all of his staring. I made the mistake of looking into his eyes and lost all train of thought, causing me to stare back at him like a total idiot. God, why did this always happen? Then class started which got me to think again and turn around.
I could not concentrate the entire class. I kept thinking about Edward. I could practically feel his eyes burning holes into my back. Finally class ended. I jumped up and gathered my books. Alice waited for me to finish. She already got all of hers together. I didn’t see Edward leave. He must still be behind us. When I finished grabbing my stuff, I started heading towards the door. Alice could catch up. I was hurrying so much to get out of there that I didn’t pay attention to my surroundings. When I stepped outside the door, Tyler ran into me. I was inches away from hitting the ground when I started being lifted up again. I knew those icy arms around my waist holding me up straight. They were the same ones that caught me many times in the past. They were his arms around my waist. Tyler started apologizing to me then.
“Bella, I’m so sorry. I was in a hurry and didn’t see you there and, oh, are you alright?”
“I’m fine Tyler. It’s okay. Really. I know it was just and accident.”
“Watch where you’re going next time.” It was Edward who said this.
“Yeah, I will. I’m sorry.” He looked at Edward and I then he walked off.
I then realized that Edward’s arms were still around my waist. He probably didn’t realize they were still there.
“Um, thanks for catching me.” I tried to make him release me, but he wouldn’t let go.
“I need to go home now.” He still wouldn’t let go.
“Can I give you a ride?” He asked me.
This took me by surprise. He wanted to drive me home? Why? Why would he want to take the time to do that?
“Uh, um…” I glanced over at Alice to see what I should do. She gave me a reassuring nod.
“Uuh, sure, I guess,” I told him. He led me toward the parking lot with his arm around my waist. What was this all about?
Class ended. Bella stood up and started to gather her stuff. I took my time gathering mine. I wanted to be around her as much as possible. When she was finished she started walking towards the door, paying no attention to me at all. I was really starting to think what I didn’t want to. That was that she didn’t forgive me. I followed her out. She turned and very slowly started to walk to her next class. I just stared after her. Once she turned around to look back at me. That was when Alice walked up and started to talk to me.
“How did class go?” she asked fast and low so that no human ear could hear.
I turned my head to look at her because I knew this was going to take a while. I saw from out of the corner of my eye Bella turning and walking to class again.
“Fine, I guess.” I answered.
“Did you talk to her?”
“Yeah.” I remembered at the beginning of class when I said ‘Hey’ to her.
“What did you say?”
I knew she would hate the answer I gave her. “Um, ‘hey‘.”
“’Hey‘? ‘Hey‘? Please tell me you said more than just ‘hey‘.”
“You idiot! What did she say back?”
“You said ‘Hey’, and then she said ‘Hey’? That‘s the most of a conversation ya‘ll have had today?”
Then she did something that I was totally not expecting. She slapped me right across the face.
“Ow! What the heck was that for?”
“Edward, you are such an idiot! My vision is never going to come true if you keep this up.”
“Why am I an idiot? And what vision? What are you talking about Alice?” I was very confused. And my cheek still hurt. If she used that kind of force on a human, she would knock their head off their neck easily.
“Why won’t you talk to her? I thought you love her.”
“I do love her.”
“So why haven’t you said two words to her today?
“Because I don’t know how she feels about me!”
Then she slapped me again. She was on a role.
“Ow! What the heck is with all the slapping?”
“She loves you you idiot! Can’t you see that by the way she looks at you?”
“She does?” I couldn’t believe this. She really loved me? Even after what I had done to her?
“She loves me? Really? Wow.”
“Why are you acting like this is so shocking?”
“I didn’t think it would be possible for her to love me after all that I did to her.”
“Everyone was trying to tell you that you were being stupid. That she would never get over you. But you wouldn’t listen. Ugh. Now I’m ordering you to talk to her. To get back with her. I have to get to class. See you there. Bye”
Then she started to walk off. I couldn’t move though. I was too shocked. Bella loved me! Bella still loved me! I knew Alice wouldn’t lie to me about something like this. She was right. I had to talk to her. I would talk to her now since I knew how she felt. This is great!
I checked my watch. Shoot! Class started in one minute. I knew Bella would be there. Alice told me she would. All three of us had sixth period together. I raced there as fast as I could while still going human speed.
When I walked into the room, my eyes landed on Bella. She loved me! Yes! She was looking at me too as I walked back to the desk behind Alice. I wanted to sit there so that I could have a better view of Bella during the class. The look on her face wasn’t happiness like mine held. It was fear. She looked behind her then back again. This time with even more fear covering her face. I wonder why. I reached the desk and sat down. She was even more beautiful from this angle, if that was possible.
I decided to take Alice’s advice right then and talk to her.
Nothing. She just stared straight ahead.
She turned around and just stared at me with a confused expression covering her face. I stared right back. Then the teacher had to come in and start class, causing her to turn back around.
I didn’t pay attention to anything the teacher was saying. My mind was to preoccupied with Bella.
Finally class ended. Bella jumped up immediately, gathered her books, and rushed out the door. She didn’t wait for either Alice or I. Even though she hurried, I was right behind her.
Tyler Crowley ran into her right when she stepped out the door, causing her to head face- first toward the concrete. I grabbed her around the waist before she hit the ground. My arms felt so good there.
They started apologizing to each other. Then I told Tyler to watch where he was going.
“Yeah, I will. I’m sorry.” He answered, looked at Bella and I, then walked off.
I couldn’t get myself to move my arms from around her waist.
“Um, thanks for catching me.” She said and tugged at my arms. I had to smile at that. She seriously thought she could make me move by force?
“I need to go home now.”
“Can I give you a ride?” I asked her. I didn’t want to be away from her for one second. I had already had all the distance from her I could take.
“Uh, um…” I saw her glance over at Alice. She nodded her head. Since when did Bella need permission from Alice to ride home with me?
“Uh, sure, I guess,” she said. I led her toward the parking lot, and kept my arm around her waist.
Yes, Edward. Keep this up. And don’t say something stupid to her on the way to her house.
Why would I say something stupid to her? Sometimes I’m surprised by that girl’s lack of trust in me. But, hey, I did leave her, and that was a huge mistake.
