6. That Damn Bell!

Rating 0/5   Word Count 1183   Review this Chapter

All the way back into the dark room my heart wouldn’t settle. Its constant pulse of 10000mph was causing me to blush deeply, again. I was scared that he would notice and become frightened, or awkward. Either way I would become even more red. I just wanted to get back into the main room and regain my normal position. That way no one could see my flaming red face, and no one would bother me. Well, maybe apart from Alice, but I’m sure I would be okay with that.

We walked through the small door, and into the grim inside. Strangely everyone seemed different, they didn’t have their head down, looking miserably at the floor. Instead they were looking up, and talking to each other, out of their own free will! Alice’s new mood must of really changed the mood inside here, it was completely breathtaking to know how much of an influence she had on people.

The beautiful boy departed me, and went to sit next to his siblings.

I quickly walked to ‘my corner’ and curled my knees under my chin, shuffled my hair over my face. I wanted to sink into thought, mostly I wanted to fall asleep. Drift into unconscious thought and not to come out for eight hours. This would make me unaware of my surroundings and the people which placed themselves there. Ahhh, bliss…

God!!!! That damn bell, will it ever give in!!!

Dinner was a drag, it seemed like forever that we had been sitting in there. Alice’s hyperactivity didn’t make time fly any quicker, instead it just made the matter worse.

But, all of the time I was in there I never dared to lift my head to look at him. The magnificent knight-in-shining-armour, my magnificent knight-in-shining-armour… Wait, cut it out. I cannot think like that! He saved me once, and even then you could hardly call it ‘saving’. I didn’t even know his name.

When the bell went again I was the first one out of there, running from the paranoia that was ‘The Boy With No Name’. I couldn’t stay in the same room as him without my face giving me away, me flushing pink whenever I saw him. I’m just glad that he wasn’t here now, so I couldn’t die painfully of embarrassment. I sat in the corner and exhaled deeply. This torture museum was sending me over the edge, I couldn’t gain control of my emotions. One day I was so sad that I could have broken down at any moment, the next day I was happy, just because of everyone else’s influences, then the next day I was dieing of embarrassment because I wanted to impress a guy, that I didn’t even know!

I jerked my head upwards when I heard footsteps five feet away from me. And guess who was walking towards me?!? HIM, coming to make my life even more suicidal. I don’t know how much longer I can put up with this.

He sat down beside me, with so much ease I didn’t even know was possible. His green eyes rolled around the room, until finally they ended on my.

“Hello, I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself before, I’m Edward Cullen.”

“Bella Swan,” my voice was hoarse.

Alice’s mood must of effected everyone. Why was an unusually beautiful boy coming to talk to me? He looked like the sort of person that must have been dating a model, the sort of person that would never even dream of talking to me.

“I wanted to see if you were ok. You fell down pretty viciously earlier.” Friendliness lingered in his green eyes.

Maybe all he wanted was a decent conversation with someone new, maybe. I was up for a chat though. To be truthful all I wanted was for someone new to talk to me. No offence on Alice, but sometimes she can be really persistent, I think that’s why I’m turning insane. A part of me felt really exited to talk to Edward, but the other part of me felt worried of my constant blushing.

“Yeah, I’m fine. I guess klutz’s aren’t good in the rain.” I tried to smile convincingly.

“Yeah,” he chuckled, and a crooked smile entered his lips.

“So Alice tells me you’re her new best friend.”

Good, light conversations. The last thing I wanted now was something about sad and painful lives, or how someday The Volturi might end up taking over the world.

“Um…I guess you could put it like that,” I smiled. Talking to Edward was pretty fun!

“So, what do you think of the rain?”

“Your asking me about the weather?” I wanted the conversation to be light, but not this light.

“Yeah, I guess I am.” He chuckled again.

“Well, I normally hate any cold, wet substance, but being here sends you completely mental, I think I’m starting to like rain!” I laughed with Edward, he was certainly easy to talk to.

“I don’t like the rain, it reminds me too much of home…” His mood took a sudden turn, and he looked away from me, to hide the sadness on his face, but left his sentence hanging.

I knew that we couldn’t have an easy conversation, no one could have an easy conversation in here. It always had to involve or relate to home, family, the outside world, The Volturi, etc.

“I know how you feel,” I murmured. I tried to lift his spirits, but I knew that it wouldn’t work.

“So…,” Edward searched for another topic to talk about, “…How do you like the food here?”

I looked at him for a minute. Whatever they did to get him here must have been painful, just thinking of it brought hurt into his eyes. I had to play along, I didn’t want to make him suffer mentally.

“Its awful,” I tried to make my voice and facial expression convincing. You could probably see right through me though, Renee always used to say: ‘I was an open book.’

Renee…

“Bella,” Edward waved his hands in front of my face to try and regain my attention.

“Yeah,” I said in a haze.

“You looked distant.”

“Oh, an old memory came back, nothing big.”

“Ok.”

Sitting here next to Edward made me feel completely safe, like he would let nothing harm me. Not that anything ever would, we were stuck in a locked room. He also made all my worries disappear, he was like the god of calm.

“Well, I better get to sleep.” Edward rose gracefully from the ground.

Light was no longer pouring in from the windows in the roof, and day had become night. Could me and Edward really have been talking for that long? Well, like the old saying goes: Time flies when your having fun!

“Goodnight,” I said cheerfully, well the best happy voice that I could conjure up.

“Bye Bella,” he smiled a crooked smile and waved. Then he walked off towards his brothers and sister.

Talking to Edward was completely different from talking to Alice, in ways which were unspeakable. I felt like I wanted to talk to him all night long, if I could I certainly would, I know that for a fact.

Hopefully we’ll talk again tomorrow.

Hopefully…
