“Aw come on, Bells. It won’t be that bad, you’re my boss now, it’s healthy to relax.” Edward said, running along side me down the tower halls.

I whirled around towards him and ripped my shield on and off him, so the voices came on and off in a high siren-like pitch, hitting him like a whip. His knees buckled and he hit the ground, clutching his head.

I glowered. “First, I’m Ella. Not ‘Bells’. Understand?” I hissed, “Secondly, yes it will be that bad. You listen to me Edward Cullen, this will be the single worst mistake in your entire life, besides getting together with me. I will make sure this is the worst of the worst Hell has to offer. You will hate it here. And if I do my job right, loath me.” He looked like he was about to interrupt, but I cut him off, “And don’t try to tell me all about that love crap, because it’ll only make it worse for you. It was just a high school crush, nothing more.” I laughed, “For God’s sake Edward, it didn’t even last a year!”

I could tell I stuck a chord there. He flinched as he stood up.

“And further more, I am your boss! So watch your step.” I hissed, turning on my heal and continuing down the hall.

He grinned, but followed.

“Ella, wait!” he said.

I huffed and turned. Unfortunately for me, he was waiting there and my face hit his just right. We kissed and I dug my nails into my hands to keep from making the same mistake as the first time. I pulled back and screamed in his face, “I HATE YOU, EDWARD CULLEN!”

“Ah,” he said, smiling as if I just made his day, “but I love you Bella Swan.”

“I’ll get Azuria if I need to! I-”

“Ella, be nice.” Azuria said, gliding down the hallway to us, “You mustn’t take advantage of your newfound power.”

I glared at her, “Your one to talk.”

She flinched, “Yes…and I’m sorry.”

I rolled my eyes, “Sure.”

She recovered herself, “Yes, well. Aro needs to see you.” she turned, then stopped, “Both of you.”

Edward grinned, “Both of us, together.”

I felt hot, “If. You. Even-”

“That’s enough! You two fight like children!” Azuria interrupted.

Edward kept grinning.

She walked off. Edward frowned and I grinned. I almost always kept my shield on him to keep him from using his ability, a fact that obviously agitated him.

It’s only been four days and already I’m ready to kill him. He gets along perfectly with Felix. They’re buds now. He annoys me every chance he gets. He kisses me every chance he gets. He’s trying to make my life Hell. And I, his.

“Come,” I commanded, walking towards Aro. He wrinkled his nose but came.

“Must you be so commanding?” Edward said.

“I’m your boss,” I answered, grinning, “So yes.”

He grinned, “Okay Boss.” He paused, “I wonder if I should call Felix ‘Boss’ or just ‘bud’”

I clenched my hands and my teeth came together in an audible snap, “I’ll tell you what you can do, you can take that question and shove it-”

“Ella, stop.” Aro said, “Be nice.”

My jaw dropped and my eyes grew wide, “But it wasn’t me! It was Edwards’s Fault!”

“Of course,” Aro said, bored, “It’s always Edward’s fault.”

Edward snickered, just low enough for me alone to hear.

I whipped my head towards him and gave him a death glare, he was obviously amused by that. I wished I could punish him right here, but Aro wouldn’t like that.

“Anyway, I have a mission for you.” Aro said, “There’s a clan in Texas who may have an immortal child, I need you, Edward, Felix, And Azuria to go check it out. Please escort Carlisle and Resa home. The rest of the Cullens already left and Carlisle and I had wanted to talk.”

My jaw dropped, “What! Edward’s been here four days! I had to wait a year before I could go on a mission!”

Aro laughed, “Ella, that’s because you were our worst! You always fought us, for two years! You took a swing at me and nailed me right in the jaw,” He chuckled, “You would thrash and lash out, yelling at this one here,” he pointed to Edward, “to shut up, even though he wasn’t here. We thought you were so broken from the break up you’d gone crazy.”

Edward’s eyes grew wide and his jaw dropped. Horrer covered his face. I saw him turn towards me in my peripheral, but refused to look directly at him.

I was too pissed at Aro.

“He however,” Aro continued, “Hangs on your every word.”

Edward recovered himself and grinned, “See Bella, I love you.”

“I hate you.”

“That’s good, hate is a passionate emotion.”

I clenched my hand into a fist, “I have your passion right here you cocky, arrogant-”

“That’s enough Ella.” Aro commanded.

I wanted to spit on him.

Three hours later and we were on the plane. Felix was holding my hand, Edward was behind us, grimacing at that.

Just as we were over the ocean, we all heard a small explosion, and our eyes grew wide.

“Get the people,” Edward said.

“No,” I commanded, “It’s not our fault the engines exploded, we leave it.” My hand flinched towards Resa.

Edward smiled gently, stroked my face, and ran to the door. He pulled all the parachutes and strapped Resa into one, throwing one in everyone else’s lap.

The plane was just starting to fall, that all happened in three short seconds.

Everyone put on they’re parachutes with only one crazy old lady questioning. I helped strap in the little ones. Between the five of us it took ten seconds.

I kicked out the door and grabbed Resa, “Jump after me, okay baby?”

“Okay mommy,” She paused, “I love you.”

My heart swelled after she said that.

Edward ran to me, grabbed my hand and kissed me. We tumbled out of the plane and I saw Edward for Edward. I didn’t look at him in hatred.

“I love you Edward,” I whispered.

And we fell again.
