3. The Call

Rating 5/5   Word Count 2101   Review this Chapter

"I hung up the phone tonight, something happen for the first time was a rush, what a rush."

As I made my way out of the building to head to my car, I couldn't help but wonder what would posses her to leave me that note.

God this would be so much easier if I could read her thoughts, I thought to myself. I was definitely going to have to speak to Carisle about this.

Once I reached my car I saw my pixie of an adoptive sister, Alice, waiting for me impatiently. The rest of my siblings preferred to ride in Rosalie's BMW, but Alice always road with me in my Volvo. We were freaks among freaks, and we had to stick together. I reached the car and pressed the button from my keys to unlock the doors.

“It's open.” I said, as opened my door.

“So...” Alice said, getting into the car and putting on her seatbelt. I never understood why she always did that, it wasn't like, her or myself for the matter, could be killed if we crashed. Every time I asked,she always said it was so we wouldn't get pulled over, as if I couldn't lie my way out of it if we did.

“I heard you got into a fight with Mike Newton today.”

I turned the engine on and begin to back out of my parking spot.

“Yeah, now I have to spend my Saturday doing some kind of community service bullshit thing with Bella Swan.”

“Well, considering what I saw in my vision I don't think you really consider spending time with Bella Swan a punishment of any kind.”

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that my sister, Alice, is psychic, and a really good one to boot. My brother, and also Alice's husband, Jasper, can toy with emotions.

“Ok, what did you see?” I asked as we exited the Forks High School parking lot. I put the peddle to the floor base and started to high tail it home.

“I'm not telling you, you'll have to figure it out yourself.”

I tried to hear her thoughts, but she was blocking my out by reciting all of the best lines from one of our favorite films, The Princess Bride.

“Fine,” I grumbled.

“I think she really likes you, you know.”

“What!”

She can't like me, she has a boyfriend, Bella wasn't that type of girl, I thought. At lease she didn't seem to be, if so she was a better actress than I could have imagined.

“Oh don't sound so shocked.” Alice scoffed, “You can hear every girl at schools thoughts and you know they would all give their right boob for a taste of you, and that includes a few of the teachers as well.”

“But Bella, has a boyfriend.” I pointed out.

“So what, haven't you seen Jerry Springer before?”

I let out a small laugh.

“People fall in and out of love all the time.” she added.

“Did I mention that she doesn't know it, but her boyfriend is a werewolf?”

“Nope, but I saw that in a vision too.” she said, with a cocky smile and in an almost smug tone.

“Of course you did,” I said, heavy on the sarcasm. “Did you also see him telling me to stay away from Bella in order for him to keep quite about me being a vampire?”

“So what, like she'd really believe he was telling the truth, she'd think he was ether very jealous, which by the way he is, or that he was crazy.”

She did have a point.

How do you explain that to someone with out them thinking you lost your marbles?, I thought.

“By the way, I can't hear every girls thoughts.”

Se looked at me completely and utterly lost and confused.

“What do you mean?”

I let out and unneeded breath, yeah you heard that right, breathing is unnecessary to us. We can hold our breath forever if we so chose, however it's very uncomfortable and it throws off the illusion that were actually human just a bit.

“I can't hear Bella's.”

Alice laughed.

“Real cute, funny Edward.”

I gave her a serious look and she immediately knew I wasn't kidding.

“Oh my god, Edward, are you serious?” she asked in shock.

“Yes,” I said in a low voice.

“Wow, what are the odds that.. oops”

“What?” I asked.

“Nothing, never mind.” she replied, and immediately started reciting lines from The Princess Bride in her head again.

She obviously almost gave away whatever she saw in her vision.

“Could you please not do that when I'm driving, it's very distracting.”

“Fine,” she sighed.

We pulled into the driveway of our home, and I parked the car. The others had beaten us home.

“By the way,” I asked, as we removed ourselves from the car, “You don't by any chance know what she wants me to call her for.”

“She just wants to discuss a few ideas for things you guys can do to keep the kids busy Saturday.”

We made ourway inside and as I shut the door behind me I heard Esme yelled from the kitchen.

“Edward Anthony Masen Cullen, you get in this kitchen right now!”

I could hear her thoughts, and I knew she was upset with me because the school had called to inform her about the fight. I walked into the kitchen and found her picking up groceries. Although we never ate the food she bought, she made a weekly visit to the supermarket so no one would think it was a little odd that we never need to stock up on things.

“Yes mam,” I replied as I started to help her put things away.

“Do you mind telling me why you were fighting at school today?” she questioned scornfully.

“Mom, it really wasn't my fault.” I explained.

I explained everything that happened, leaving out the part about not being able to hear Bella's thoughts and that her boyfriend was a wolf. Really why bother her with that?

“Well, I'm proud of you for defending an innocent girl, however it doesn't justify what you did.”

“I know mom, I'm sorry.”

“Just promise me you wont do it again.” she requested.

I put the last of the things away and walked over to her side.

“I promise,” I answered, and kissed her cheek. She may not have been my real mother, but I loved her just the same.

“Now go get your home work done.”

“Yes mam,” I answered, and exited the kitchen and made my way up the stairs to my room.

Once in my room I turned on my stereo and pulled out my laptop in order to start on my home work. I couldn't get my mind off of Bella Swan, her scent, her beauty, her sweet voice, her innocence. I was completely compelled by her every being. Once I finished my homework I realized it was almost seven o'clock.

I better call her before it gets too late, I thought.

It took everything in me to restrain from calling her as soon as I got home, but I didn't want to seem to obvious. The phone ring four times and I was getting anxious.

Come on, pick up the phone!, I shouted in my head.

She finally picked up.

“Hello?” she said.

“Bella?”

“Yes.”

“It's Edward.”

“I'm so glade you called.” she sounded so excited. I couldn't keep from smiling.

“Of course I did, so how much trouble did you get into with your dad for fighting at school today?”

I already knew what she wanted, so I figured I could make a little small talk along the way.

“I got a twenty minuet lecture that made the dean's one look like a Dr. Sesus book.”

We both laughed.

“What about you?” she asked.

“About the same.” I answered.

“So the reason I wanted you to call me is we have to figure out what were going to do to keep the kids busy this Saturday.”

Great, I had no idea how to deal with kids. How was I going to have this conversation with out looking like an ass.

“Uh... well I guess I could bring my Wii and a few games.”

“That might work, just so long as the video games don't have violence were supposed to be teaching them to not use violence, not encourage it.”

We both laughed, she was really starting to grow on me.

“How does Rock Band sound?”

I knew whatever we did to keep the rug rats entertained, it had to be something we could do indoors. Our handy dandy weather girl, AKA Alice, foresaw a rare sunny day in the usualy rainy, dreary, town of Forks, Washington.

“Sounds great.” She answered cheerfully.

Suddenly her phone clicked.

“Hang on, I got another call.” she said.

I waited patently to hear the angel voice again.

“Hello?” she asked when she clicked back over.

“I'm still here.” I replied.

“Hey, thats Jake, so I guess I'll let you go and I'll see you tomorrow at school.”

“Alright, “I said regretting we had to say good bye.”Have a good night, sleep tight.” I added.

“You too Edward.”

Yeah right I thought, as I hung up the phone, like I'd be able to sleep with out dreaming about her. I decided to go ahead and take a shower, just hearing her voice gave me a super massive erection and I needed to uh.. take care of it if you catch my drift. I grabbed some comfortable clothes to sleep in and headed off to the bathroom. The whole time I was “relieving” myself all I could think about was her. I wasn't a virgin by any means.

Back when we were in Alaska, with the Dalani coven, Tanya and I tried dating for a while and we definitely had plenty of nights of wild, animalistic sex. But I didn't want to be that way with Bella, I wanted to make love to her, not just fuck her brains out like Tanya and I did. Thats why it didn't work out between us, we were only physically attracted to one another, and nothing more. But, Bella, I was attracted to her in ways I didn't even know existed.

Once I finished up in the bathroom I threw on my gray sweat pants and white t-shirt and headed off to my room again. I still needed to talk to Carlisle and knew he'd be leaving for his late night shift at the hospital.

I went downstairs into the living room and found Carlilse watching television.

“Hey Dad, can I talk to you?” I asked.

He turned the tv to mute.

“Sure, what is it?” he asked.

“Well, you know I can read minds, but for some reason Bella, the girl who I defended today, she's immune to it or something.”

“Really?” he asked shocked.

I shook my head yes.

“Well, that is strange, but you know maybe mind reading isn't an exact science.”

“I don't understand what you mean.” I said as I sat of the sofa next to him.

“Maybe Bella just has a very private mind.”

I suddenly understood what he meant.

“You mean like, maybe it's like her safe haven, a place wear no one can touch her, right?”

Carlisle smiled at me.

“Correct, I actually think maybe it's a good thing you can't read her mind. You might get a sense of normalcy.”

“Yeah,” I said, “Maybe even a little peace and quite for once too. You know, having a billion voice all shouting things out at once isn't as easy to ignore as you might think.” I added.

Carlisle chuckled.

“No,” he said, “I suppose it wouldn't be.”

We both laughed a little before I let out a small audible yawn. Carlilse smiled at me.

“Go get some rest son.”

“Ok.” I replied, “Thanks dad.” I added as I left the room.

Before I got situated in bed, I realized I hadn't checked my Myspace messages all day. I grabbed my laptop and logged in. I had a new friend request, and some how I just knew who it was before I looked at it. My instincts were right, it was from none other than Bella. I smiled as I accepted the friend request and signed off for the night. I picked up my computer and got comfortable in my bed.

As I laid there thinking about Bella, I suddenly felt a little guilty, I was not respecting the mutts wishes, but then again it was Bella who passed her number along to me and asked me to call her. It was she who sent me the friends request.

So, it's not my fault she keeps finding me, Jacob would just have to deal with it, I thought to myself before I drifted to sleep.
