Blast From the Past
The next day, I kept reading the note. He wanted to talk to me. I couldn’t avoid talking to him. He wanted to meet me in front of my Jeep. I couldn’t avoid that.
I really don’t know what he was thinking and I wanted to know.
The day dragged on slowly, I just wanted to get this conversation over with.
Lunch went by, but I didn’t see Edward there. He wasn’t in chem either. But, when I walked out of the school, I saw him casually leaning against the driver’s side of my Jeep.
I stopped about five feet away from him.
“Hi, Bella.” He said, pushing himself up from the door and walking closer to me.
I backed up, instantly thinking of the still aching purple bruise that was still wrapped around my arm.
“Can I have the keys so I can take us where we’re gonna talk?” He asked.
“No way, this car is brand new and doesn’t drive fast; you don’t get to touch it.” O growled, trying to move past him.
He moved in front of me, blocking the door. “No, I can drive slowly. Lya hates me driving fast as well. I won’t run into any trees.” He chuckled.
I tightened my hand around my keys momentarily and I dropped the keys into his open hand.
I walked over to the passenger door, but it was already open. I got in and slammed the door shut.
He started my engine and drove out of the parking lot at a normal speed.
“Put your seat belt on, Bella.” He said, his jaw clenched.
“I’m a vampire now, Edward. I don’t need to wear a seat belt.” I said, my back stiffened.
“I don’t care. You can still get hurt, put the damn thing on.” He growled as he pulled out into Route 89.
I reluctantly put the seat belt on and stared out my window the whole way.
He pulled off the road and onto a dirt road. A couple of minutes later, he stopped the car. He hurriedly got out and rushed around to my side and opened the door. He opened the door and I hopped out.
“Get on.” He said, motioning to his back.
“No, Edward. I can run on my own.” I said, “You run, I’ll follow.”
I could tell Edward didn’t want to argue anymore, and he took off.
I ran after him. We ran through the thickly densed trees. I only ran when I had to, I preferred flying with Aidan.
All of a sudden, I saw him stop in front of me. I skidded to a stop, dragging wet leaves and grass along with me. I stopped right before I reached his back.
I looked around and I saw we were in a field with lilac bushes everywhere. The smell almost knocked me out, it was so powerful.
Edward turned around and looked down at me.
“Let’s talk.” I said, and sat down and leaned against one of the bushes.
He sat in front of me, about five feet away, crossing his legs.
“How, Bella? How did you become a vampire?” He asked.
“When you left, I though my life was ending. I though the world was crashing in on me. I didn’t talk to Charlie. He even tried to get me to go see a shrink. I wouldn’t get up from bed; I stayed there all the time. When I got your note with the lily, I broke down worse than before. Pain came and went, racking my body. But then, one month after you left, and Charlie was getting sick and tired of me staying in bed all the time, it was at night. I couldn’t sleep, knowing that you were not next to me. I didn’t know who did it, but all I saw were red eyes and I felt pain in my throat, and here I am right now, the way you saw me twenty-three years ago in my driveway.” I whispered.
“How did you get with your family?” He asked.
“I don’t have to feed as much as you guys do, but one time, when I didn’t feed when I was supposed to, I couldn’t move I was so hungry. Aidan, my best friend in the world, found me and caught me a wolf and gave it to me.” I said. “And now, I’m with them now. They’re my family and I love for as long as I’m alive.”
Edward fell silent then. He stood up, walked around and around in circles, pacing.
“What are their powers?” He asked.
“Alexandra is kinda like Jasper, except she can only put calm on people who she wants to and she can feel everyone’s emotions. Danny can read people’s minds, only if you’re in the room with him, though. And he can read my mind. Christian can freeze time, but only humans. Emily goes invincible and Aidan can fly.” I said.
“Does he turn into a bat?” Edward laughed.
I shot him a look and went back to intertwining lilac blossoms.
“Sorry,” He apologized. “What’s your power?” He asked.
“I control the weather, the Earth, and all of its elements.” I said it as though it was something a human did.
“You can’t, no vampire can control the weather.” He said, a stricken look on his face.
“Want me to prove it?” I asked, a glint in my eyes. Lightning cracked in the sky and thunder boomed, yet, the sun was still out and Edward’s and my skin was glittering.
He looked amazed, yet a little terrified at the same time.
“Don’t test me, or you will end up in a hole.” I said.
Edward nodded, and the thunder and lightning ceased.
“Who’s Lya?” I asked, curious.
“Ten years ago, we were out on a hunting trip, and we came across this girl. She was beautiful, but I wasn’t over you. Not for the thirteen years since I had left you. I had thrown out all my CD’s and didn’t play the piano anymore, except your lullaby. That’s the only thing that I played, and Esme was getting sick of it.” He chuckled. “Well, anyway, this girl, she was laying there, claw marks in her chest and near her stomach. Carlisle tried to save her, but he couldn’t. So, he changed her, not wanting to leave her there dead.” He said sadly.
Tears threatened to flow down my cheeks. I pushed them back for the moment.
“When she was done changing, she said her name was Lya, and that was all she remembered. As time went on, she grew on me. I started playing more music, I got my CD’s back, but your lullaby was still part of what I played the most. Lya got me back to the way I was. Maybe not completely, but she still changed me from being depressed and gave me life.” He said.
An evil tear betrayed me and slid down my face. Edward came closer, reached over, and took the tear in his finger. He wiped it on the grass and inched closer more.
Tears poured over more and more.
He took my face in his hands and wiped the tears away. “Don’t cry, my Bella.” He whispered, wiping more betraying tears away.
And then it all happened at once. The tears stopped, and I looked into his eyes. His topaz eyes held pain and love. Love for who, I still do not know. But then, all of a sudden, HE reached in and placed his lips softly on mine.
He held my face in his hands as he began to go beyond the boundaries that we had set up so long ago.
He pressed his lips harder and began to kiss me faster, and I was responding. He pressed me down into the soft grass, crushing the flowers I was twirling together. He was over me, kissing me, pressing himself into me, and I was giving into him.
But, when he pressed his tongue to my lips, seeking entrance, I when I remembered something. Lya.
I pulled away, turning my head, him still on top of me. I was breathing hard and I could hear he was too. I couldn’t risk looking at him.
I pushed him up off me and I stood up, backing into the flower tree.
“Edward, you can’t do this. You can’t kiss me anymore. Not like that, anyway. You were the one that broke up with me. Plus, you have Lya! Doesn’t she matter to you?” I yelled at him, finally looking into his glazed over, lustful golden eyes.
“Of course she does! She doesn’t matter to me as much as you do! I love you, Bella!” He came up and kissed me again.
I struggled against him and pulled away. I shook my head and took off running to my car.
“Bella!” I heard him yell after me, but I just kept running.
I threw myself into the Jeep and drove away, not caring where I was going, just driving.
