Rating 4.5/5 Word Count 619 Review this Chapter
I felt awkward walking next to Edward toward his car. I could feel many eyes on us. Even though there were tons of other kids talking, it felt silent. Very awkwardly silent. I wished that he would say something to break the loud silence.
I was starting to feel very self- conscience. He kept staring at me with a huge smile on his face. I wish that I could borrow his power so that I could know what he was thinking. Why did he keep glancing over at me? Why did he have that huge grin on his face?
Before I knew it we were at his silver Volvo. Edward opened the passenger door for me. I sat down and watched him make his way to the other side of the car.
When he got in and started the car, I forced myself to look straight ahead. I was too afraid that if I looked at the beautiful god sitting next to me, I wouldn’t be able to look away. He, obviously, didn’t have this problem. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see him watching me as he drove out of the school parking lot. It scared me a little that, even though I knew he had complete control of the car and had never had a problem driving without looking at the road before, he was staring intently at me while driving down the road towards my house at 85 miles per hour.
I made the mistake of looking over at him because he was staring straight back, and I got lost in his eyes. I couldn’t look away. I kept begging in my mind for him to look away so that I could be free of the hold his eyes had on me, and finally my wish came true. He looked towards the road, the crooked smile I love forming across his face. I took that chance to look away, too.
By then, we were almost at my house. I wondered what would happen then. Would he start talking then? I hoped he would. I couldn’t take any more of this silence. There needed to be talking, and I had no idea what to say. I wondered if Alice would be there, or if she would go to her house. I hoped she would be there. Then again, I didn’t. Part of me didn’t want to have to face Edward alone like this anymore, and another part wanted nothing but to be alone with him. It was so confusing. Before I could figure out what I wanted more, Edward spoke.
“No!” he growled almost inaudibly.
I looked over at him with shock and confusion on my face. What was wrong?
He didn’t answer me. Instead, he sped up and passed my house. He was going so fast, I could barely see the car parked in our drive way. I wondered who it was, but came to the conclusion that it was Charlie, home early from work. Thanks to Edward’s maniac driving, I wasn’t expected to be home for another ten minutes. But then Charlie would probably start to get worried.
“What’s going on? Why did you pass my house? Edward! Where are you taking me?” By then we were almost out of the main part of town. I was starting to get scared. What was wrong? Why wasn’t he taking me home?
“To my house,” he finally answered.
“Why? Why won’t you take me home?”
“I can’t take you there.”
“It’s not safe.”
I immediately thought of what it could be. Why it wouldn’t be safe. It was her! She was there! Victoria was there to get me! And Charlie was there too! No! I couldn’t let her get Charlie!
