5. Telling the Truth
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1003 Review this Chapter
Edward just stood there looking away towards the school like he was wondering whether or not to leave me there. At this point I didn’t know if I wanted him leave just so I might be able to put this in the back of my mind, but who was I kidding there was no way to make this go away. As for the other half of me, well that part was still entirely shell-shocked; never would I have thought Edward would go as far as reading Connor’s mind. Not only was that unsettling but the fact that I didn’t know what it was Connor thought that made Edward so upset gave me no relief.
“Bella, I think we should go to class.” he said without turned his gaze to me.
“You go ahead.” I said and daintily waved my hand towards him. No way was I sitting through seven classes, most with Edward, and be able to say nothing. Well I guess I could talk to him at lunch but that was still a few hours away and I was sure I wouldn’t make it that long without exploding from the suspense. But if I didn’t go to class it would worry Edward and hopefully lure him somewhere where we could talk.
“Bella, your going to miss class.” I didn’t respond, I merely walked back to my car and sure enough he followed being the worrisome boyfriend he was. His cold hand gripped my wrist in a hard, light for him, manner in which he turned me around. “Bella, if you leave now Charlie will find out and you’ll be in more trouble if that is even possible and I don’t think you want that.” Darn, he knew exactly what to say to make me change my mind but I was determined to find out what had happened and soon.
“I know,” I tried to say confidently but an actress I was not. “But I’m not going back,…”
“Bella,” I put a finger to his lips,
“Let me finish. I’m not going back till you tell me what happened exactly.”
He sighed hard then turned his gaze back to mine “Fine, but I’m warning you now what I tell you might come as surprising.”
“What could be more shocking then finding out the guy I love is a vampire.” I said stern though mentally preparing for the worst. Edward just stood there with a displeased look on his angle face, his gaze to the school.
“Alright, but I think we should go somewhere where we won’t be caught for ditching.” I nodded and headed for the forest by the school with Edward right by my side, silent as ever. What could Connor have thought? Is it even possible for Edward to read his mind? was all that ran through my mind as the blood boiled under my skin from anticipation. It was because of my careless state that I tripped over a root while making my way into the trees so that I was out of view. Just like me to embarrass myself in front of Edward when I needed him to take me seriously.
Edward chuckled at my clumsiness but saved me nonetheless from falling in the dirt; only in times like this could I be glad and ungrateful for his presence all at the same time. “Are you sure your not missing your right foot?” he teased, and I glared as best I could, but with Edward you could really only ogle at his perfection: darn, good looking vampires, I thought.
“Can you just tell me what happened?” I sounded a little ruder than I intended and there was a slight hurt in his eyes.
“I’d rather not,” I crossed my arms in impatience, and he sighed, “well, the other night when I was late I came in and he was there on your bed, and I was well…jealous.” his eyes darted to the floor, “I don’t like having to share you and to see that creature lying next to you where I should have been…well it took me most of my control to not massacre him right there.” I gasped, taken aback, “Bella, I wouldn’t, I was just as I said before jealous. It’s no excuse for what I was thinking, and it was childish to feel that way to begin with but it was like it was so easy for you to replace me.”
“I could never replace you.” I said quietly though still waiting for him to get on with the story. Edward turned his topaz eyes to lock with mine and I knew finally he was about to begin.
Telling my side of the story was easy, I simply made myself the knight in shinning armor who was trying to protect his fair maiden from evil. Of course Connor’s words were changed around a little, or a lot, but it wasn’t as though he would come here and tell Bella exactly what had happened. When I was finished I remembered the last time I lied to Bella and I hoped this wouldn’t cause as much pain as that time had.
When I finally heard all that had happened I was sure my jaw hung wide open. He couldn’t, Connor wasn’t a spy. Was he? When you love someone you don’t think rationally about them, and in knowing Connor for a mere day he had become like a little brother as bizarre it might sound. Maybe I was becoming one of those people who have tons of pets and think that they’re humans in animal form. But I only had one pet, for now, who did seem humanlike.
“Edward can I talk to Connor.” sure that sounded crazy but if Edward was going to tell his side of the story I wanted to hear Connor’s, at least if I could Edward to translate.
“You want to talk with him.” his face became incredulous and in slight worry.
“Yes, I want to talk to him and have you tell me what he thinks in response.”
