I spun round. And groaned. It was Edward. I shoved my thumb into my mouth, just in case it was still bleeding.

"Bella, what are you doing?" he asked.

"How long have you been watching me?" I asked, ignoring his question.

"A second or two. I heard something and came this direction instead of the way I was heading. Now, I'm very glad I did" oh screw it. I could choose to walk away and wait for a sign that might never come, or I could take this as my sign and speak to him. I sat down on the grass and started to gather up my stuff.

"What's all this stuff?"

"I'll tell you some other time," I told him. He smiled.

"So you will be talking to me another time?"

"Yes"

"Good"

"In biology about our project" he rolled his eyes, stooped and picked up the bottle of wine, which was lying under the tree, with liquid inside it.

"Have you taken up drinking?"

"No"

"Is your coven a group of people who go out and get drunk?" he laughed.

"No Edward. We're a coven. We do Wicca"

"Wicca?" he raised an eyebrow.

"Don't mock my beliefs Edward Cullen" I said "or my sisters and brothers will try to get you. They'll probably put a spell on you" then I remembered "Damn, threefold law"

"Right. So that's your coven?"

"Yes. We started when Jo, Holly, Leo and Mik arrived"

"Which one was Holly?"

"The one who had a go at you. Leo was the one with his arm around me. Jo was the other girl"

"Right. I don't think she liked me very much"

"Nah, Holly just is very loyal to her friends. If you become friends with her, she'll always be your friend. If you hurt someone she cares about, she'll get mad at you"

"Oh right"

"If you talk to her she might stop thinking of ways to kill you"

"Okay. I'll do that tomorrow"

"So, what were you doing out here?"

"A spell"

"For what?"

"Guidance. I needed a sign to tell me what to do about you"

"Did you get one?"

"Yes"

"What was it?"

"You" I said.

"Me?" he said, confused.

"Yes, you turning up at that point"

"Bella, I really am sorry. I regretted it as soon as the words were out of my mouth. I did it to protect you, honestly"

"I believe you. It hurt for a long time but I've found my own...distractions"

"Like Wicca?"

"That's one. Another is...well, I've been slightly reckless"

"Bella, you promised"

"I got mad! I wanted to break promises! So I got into riding motor bikes. And stuff"

"Stuff?"

"I went cliff diving. Once. With my friend Jacob"

"okay. Bella...do you forgive me?" he gave me a puppy dog look.

"Fine! Just stop that!" I said, laughing.

"I love you Bella. I'll never stop trying to get you to forgive me for what I did"

"I've forgiven you already!"

"I mean, I want to make it up to you"

"If you want to do something for me. Kiss me Edward. I've missed you" he smiled. He pressed my lips to his. It felt so familiar I felt a small tear form in my eye.
