Officer Knightly pulled me and Jacob apart before we could do anymore damage, my jaw felt swollen and stiff but both of Jacob’s eyes were puffy and red. I smiled cunningly and he struggled to get to me even harder while Officer Knightly pulled me towards the office.
“Edward, do you want to tell me what that was about?” He asked worried. I bit my lip and felt the sting of my teeth going into a cut.
“Well…” I started but then hesitated. Alice’s words rang so loud in my ears at that second, “He hit her Edward! He beats her all the time!” My hand curled into a tight fist but I swallowed the real cause for why I wanted to kill Jacob Black.
“Never mind.” I grumbled angrily. It’s not like I needed to give Bella more reasons to hate me…especially ratting out her abusive boyfriend. Sending him to jail would be about the millionth and two reason why she loathed every fiber of my being. I don’t exactly know what the first million and one are but ever since I can remember she has absolutely despised me. Yet, I still try to impress her every chance I get; I always wear the best clothes, drive in the fanciest cars, I even played match maker with my brothers and her sisters! What else can a man do to make a girl fall in love? I try to be polite and be more out going, even go to the stupid Christmas parties her dad hosts! I’d probably jump off a bridge for her…maybe that’s exactly what she wants me to do--jump off a bridge. Ever since my adoptive brothers and I moved to forks freshman year, I always had an eye for her, not even noticing anyone else.
They gave me three day suspension for fighting but expelled Jacob (thank God). I usually keep to myself, so it was a big surprise that I was the one walking into the office, rather then my brother Emmett, or even Jasper. I drove home in silence; my head was pounding, I laid down when I got home. My mother, Esme, didn’t ask me what was the matter because she knew it had been a rough day. My dad, Carlisle, had the usual “be the bigger man and don’t fight” talk with me that made me feel guilty as soon as he started, I respected him so much that not even Jacob’s abusiveness could justify it. How could someone do that to a girl so beautiful, it’s like scratching a Monet or defacing a Picasso? I grew angry again just thinking about it. Maybe now that her boyfriend was gone, she would take the chance to get to know me better and open her eyes to something different…how she deserves to be treated. I stay up nights thinking about the way she looks into his eyes, how I wished she could look at me like that. But, she would never give me the time of day, she won’t even give me the chance to say hello. If only I could know what I was doing wrong, if only I could see what he was doing right.
“Hey Bro!” Emmett called as he stomped up the stairs, interrupting my thoughts. “What was up with that today? Are you crazy?”
“I just couldn’t take it, Emmett, why would he do that?” I clenched my teeth. Jasper walked in calmly.
“You could’ve taken it off campus.” He said nonchalantly.
“Well I didn’t so now what? Bella is probably feeling ten times more disgusted at me then ever now.” I said shrugging my shoulders.
“I don’t know man, she didn’t seem to care much, she kind of seemed fed up with it. Like she finally sees the light or something!” Emmett chuckled and I shot him an angry glance.
“This is nothing to laugh about Emmett, what if someone was beating up Rosalie?” Emmett’s eyebrow’s furrowed in anger and then straightened out.
“Yeah, maybe, Edward, but Bella’s not your girl! You can’t help someone if they don’t want to help themselves.”
I looked down at the gold and black print on my bed and traced it with my hand. “Well of course she’s not going to ask for help! It’s embarrassing!”
“How do you know that Edward…you think you can read her mind or something? No one knows what Bella Swan’s thinking. She’s unpredictable! Now I’m going to grab the Jeep and we’re going to play some ball. Are you coming or are you going to sit here and sulk about something you can’t fix?” He turned towards the door and I got up to get my jacket. Jasper was still standing at the doorway.
“Listen I know how you’re feeling right now Edward but Emmett’s right, we can’t help her unless she asks for it.” He put his hand on my shoulder and shook it, before stepping out the door in front of me. I stopped in the hallway and then turned back into my room to grab my phone. It rang.
“Edward? It’s me Rose! I was wondering if you and your brothers wanted to come to dinner Friday night?”
“Rosalie I really don’t feel like being a third wheel to your little dinner okay!”
“Edward! Who said anything about third wheel? Bella’s going to come!”
“No really! It’s going to be fun!”
“We’ll see about that, Rose…”
“Okay see you at five!” Click.
Secretly I wished for something like this, something other then a holiday party or birthday, something more personal. My spirits were lifted and I felt a little more whole then usual, I raced out to the Jeep where Emmett was waiting, honking the horn impatiently.
“What’s up with you all of a sudden?” He laughed.
“It’s the pep talk I gave him!” Jasper boasted.
“No Rosalie and Alice just invited us to dinner.” I shrugged.
“What’s so great about being third wheel?” He teased and I punched him in the shoulder with my already swollen hand.
“Wait, let me guess….Bella’s coming?” Jasper mused. A smile tugged at the corner of my mouth but I pursed my lips.
“Can we just go play ball?”
“Now we’re talking!” Emmett roared.
For a moment I imagined a perfect night, something so faultless, just for her. Something Jacob could never and will never give her. I would finally get to talk to her without her stupid boyfriend around. I would finally have a real and truthful conversation. Of course only if she wouldn’t be so stubborn as usual, and let me tell her how I feel.
