OK, so this is my first time writing in this style. So be kind. I normally write with more emotion, getting more into the character, but I wanted to try writing this way. I hope it turned out OK...

“They’re coming?” I asked.
She nodded, still looking at Edward. I looked over to him as well. His face was conflicted, seeming to be between anger and smugness. An odd combination…
He looked down to me, before recomposing his expression and smiling. I smiled back warily. Did I miss something?
“Is that all then?” he asked Carlisle.
“Yes, you can go.”
No Longer Glass
Edward led me out of the room and up the stairs to his room. Once we got into his room, he set me on the futon and sat next to me. I leaned into his chest, inhaling his sweet scent, so much more wonderful with my sensitive sense of smell. He wrapped his arms around my back and pressed his lips into my hair. I smiled into his marble chest. He pulled back to smile at me.
I smiled at him, glancing at my ring. He followed my gaze and smiled at me when I looked back to him.
“I love you,” I said.
“I love you, too.”
He tilted his head and leaned in to press his lips gently to mine, lighter than a moth’s wing. I pulled back an instant after his lips touched mine. He frowned at me.
“What’s wrong?” he asked.
“I’m not going to break, so stop treating me like I will. I’m not a weak human anymore. Stop treating me like I’m made of glass,” I said, frowning at him.
He smiled, amused, before leaning forwards to kiss me again. He kissed me with more passion than before. I kissed him back, putting all of my emotion into it. My breathing quickly turned to panting as my hands moved to his face, just as his moved to mine. I fell back onto the futon, and he fell after me, our lips never separating. I could feel his marble body against every line of mine. My hands memorized his face, just as his were tracing mine.
He froze then, his lips becoming unresponsive. He pulled back slightly, exhaling. I frowned at him.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Emmett is yelling at me…” he said, frowning.
“Why?” I asked, confused.
“I’m not really sure… he’s mostly cursing me out… It’s kind of hard to kiss you with that in my head,” he apologized.
He sat up then, pulling me up with him. We both stood up and headed for his door. I decided to show off and opened the door with my mind. He was surprised for a moment, before looking down to me, smiling.
“That’s going take a little bit to get used to,” he chuckled, smiling.
I smiled back at him.
We got to the stairway, before we heard a loud crashing sound coming from outside, along with a stream of cursing coming from Emmett. Edward and I ran to the front door. Edward opened it and I could see, about a mile off, Emmett. He was snarling, and hitting trees with enough force to knock them over.
“What the?” Edward said in disbelief.
“What did you do?” I asked. What could get Emmett so upset?
“I didn’t do anything…” Edward said, confused. “At least, I don’t think I did anything…”
Edward ran up to Emmett then. I heard footsteps behind me, and then Alice was next to me. I looked over to her, and her expression was worried.
“Alice?” I said quietly.
“Emmett is going to make a mistake, and I am here to stop him from making it,” she said with a determined face.
I looked back to Edward and Emmett then.
“What did I do?” Edward asked as Emmett punched a tree, splintering it.
Emmett growled, turning to face Edward and punched him, sending Edward backwards several inches. I took a step forwards, but Alice held my shoulder.
“What the hell, Emmett? Are you going to say something or just keep hitting stuff?” Edward said. He was growling now, too.
Emmett turned, furious, and ran towards Edward. The sound of their impact was like thunder, and together they flew into a tree.
“It’s your fault!” Emmett yelled.
“What is?” Edward exclaimed, dodging a punch. “Emmett, what did I do?”
“Don’t play dumb” Emmett snarled. “You know what I’m talking about!”
After a minute of growling from Emmett and Edward dodging Emmett’s furious attacks, Edward snarled. “You will not bring Bella into this!” He jumped to the left to avoid Emmett.
“What are they doing?” I asked Alice. “What did Edward do?”
She sighed. “Emmett is being an idiot. Rosalie was jealous of you when she saw you, because she thinks you are prettier than she is now, and ran off. Emmett doesn’t know where she is, and Emmett is blaming Edward because he turned you.”
“You’ve got to be kidding me, Emmett,” Edward groaned, dodging another punch. “It’s not my fault Rose does a bad job dealing with her temper.”
Emmett only snarled, throwing another punch.
Edward kept jumping around, dodging punches, and Emmett kept throwing them.
This Stops Now
“This is stupid,” I said.
“Emmett, enough. Seriously. Just quit fooling around and we’ll go look for Rosalie,” Alice said, with no luck.
Emmett kept getting angrier as time went on. What was his problem?
“OK,” I said, growling. “This stops. Now.”
I let out a slow breath, closing my eyes. I imagined Emmett freezing in place, unable to move.
“What the hell?” Emmett said after a minute. I opened my eyes, and saw Emmett wasn’t moving. That wasn’t the weirdest part. He had been lunging for Edward when my telekinesis took place, so he was frozen… in the air. Edward looked over to me, and back to Emmett. Then he burst out laughing. Alice began laughing, too.
“I guess things are going to be a little different around here now,” Edward said, still laughing. “Or Bella will put us back in place.”
I released my hold on Emmett, and he fell ungracefully to the ground. Edward was at my side in the next instant, wrapping his arm around my waist. I smiled at him.
Emmett still looked furious. He was still angry with Edward? What the hell? He began charging towards us again.
Edward and Alice both suddenly ran towards Emmett. They both caught him and pulled him back, away from me.
“You. Need. To. Get. A. Grip. Emmett,” Alice said through her teeth.
“You deserved it,” Edward added, growling again. “You do not get to go attacking her.”
Shock ran through me. He was coming to attack me?
