Isabella and I

Isabella is cool and confident
Bella is shy and hardworking
Isabella is a cheerleader
Bella is a friendmaker.

Okay, this has a rather random theme. And also, slightly non/canon in parts. Don't get offended! It's just a story. Oh, and Alice isn't a vampire yet. Jasper found the Cullen's on his own. Bella, also isn't a vampire but the other Cullen's are (like normal)

"Edward I need to ask you something" I said, as soon as we were in his car together.

"Shoot" he said. Last minute nerves were flowing through me. Why? It was just Mike being stupid...but still I had this nervous feeling that he was right. But why couldn't I have asked him out in the open where I was safe?

"Bella?" he asked. I realized he was still waiting for an answer.

"Well...this is going to sound so stupid, but Mike said something to me earlier"

"What? I'm sorry about kissing you in public but it's really none of his concern"

"No. it's not that. That's fine. It's just...Mike said...the way you look at me is like you want to eat me. It's crazy right? I just felt...a tiny bit...scared" my voice trailed away under Edward's hard gaze.

"Edward...are you okay?"

"God dammit!" he said, whacking the steering wheel. I was seriously frightened. There was a buzzing in my ears but I heard a faint click.

"Edward..." I said.

"Damn Mike Newton to the darkest depths of hell" he said. I tore my attention away from him. We weren't going very fast and the road was empty except for one car. I could jump. I slipped a hand over to the door handle and pulled gently. The door was locked. That was the click I'd heard.

"Edward...let me out" I said, trying to sound firm but I couldn't help the shake in my voice. He looked at me but I don't think he actually saw me. He shook his head slowly, almost regretfully. God, I was so scared. The car was speeding up.

Bella! I looked at Edward. The roaring in my ears was louder. His mouth hadn't moved.

Bella! Listen to me! Be strong, you'll get out of this! It was that...her. That arrogant girl in the mirror only this time she was comforting me.

"Bella, everything will be fine" this time it was Edward. The car got even faster.

"LET ME OUT!" I shouted.

"No!" he said.

Bella, just play along with him and run at the first free chance.

"Bella, you need to listen to me. Everything will be fine. I just need to talk to you in private. Just listen. Relax"

Bella! Say, you're right Edward. Play along or we're both dead!

I can't! I thought. I was too scared.

Fine! Relax your mind. Let go of the restraints. I closed my eyes briefly. Isabella. That was her name. Come out.

I felt power surge through me as I regained control. Bella was sheltering in my mind, terrified. I was scared too but I needed to stay calm.

"You're right Edward. I'm sorry. I'll listen to you"

"Good" the car slowed but he didn't unlock the doors.

"Bella, I am sorry about this but I need to talk to you"

"Talk to me now" I said. He gave me a look, almost as if he'd noticed the change in attitude.

"Edward?" he shook his head.

"I need to be somewhere safe, where I can talk to you and where I don't have to focus on my driving"

"No, tell me now Edward. Please"

"Fine. Bella. I'm a vampire" oh shit.
