Saturday was now upon me, and I was ecstatic! I get to see Edward in less than 1 hour! After the lunch Alice and I had on Tuesday, I decided to cancel with Axton, not wanting to further my relationship with him since I was planning on furthering my relationship with the Cullen’s. I guess it wasn’t really fair, but after the warnings I received from Alice, I was slightly scared of Axton. I knew the Cullen’s and they were kind, generous people. I didn’t know anything about Axton, and I wanted to keep it that way.

Alice and I had gone shopping for today, and I had selected my own outfit for today, with Alice’s supervision. She insisted on paying for it, claiming it was last season anyway and it was a steal. I almost refused until she said those magic words…’Edward will die when he sees you in it’. I was putty I her hands.

I began fixing my makeup for the tenth time, making sure it was perfect. I don’t normally wear make up, but I wanted to look a bit more dramatic, so I added just a simple thin line of eyeliner, mascara, a sheer vanilla eye shadow, a bit of bronzer to highlight my cheek bones, and a crimson lip stain. I opted to wear the stain because it didn’t leave residue if I happened to touch my lips to something or someone… I was just making sure my hair was okay when I heard Edward knocking on my door. I ran to it, quite ungracefully since I hit my knee on the corner table as I ran to the open my door. But it wasn’t Edward gracing my steps; it was a rather unwelcome guest.

“You look stunning Bella. Off to a hot date?” Asked Axton, raising his eyebrow as he appraised me.

“Yes actually. He should be here any moment.” I said, hoping he’d get the hint and leave.

“I thought we had plans today?” he asked a little over dramatic.

“I left a note for you at the café that I wouldn’t be able to make it. Didn’t you get it?” I asked, wondering how he knew where I lived. I never gave him that information.

“I did, but I wanted to talk to you anyway.” He said, trying to walk past me through my door. I didn’t budge.

“I’m sorry, but like I said, I have company coming. Maybe we can talk Monday at school?” I asked trying to close the door.

“That would have been okay if it weren’t for the fact that I need to warn you about your new friends. Or have they already gotten into you pretty little head?” He asked condescendingly.

“My pretty little head, as you call it, has a mind of its own and isn’t influenced by what people say.” I said upset.

“Then why not hear me out if that’s true?” he was trying to trap me in my words, and he was good, but I was better.

“Because anything said to me about someone else would be gossip, and I don’t like gossip.” I said.

“But its not gossip if it comes from someone who knows the truth, is it?”

“Do you know the truth Axton? Do You!? I don’t think you do.” I said angrily. He was starting to get on my last nerve. “I know what happened, Alice told me. It was an accident! When will you accept that?” I said to him. I felt horrible for having to be so blunt with him, but the minute he invaded my comfort zone, the minute all gloves are off.

“So you’ll believe them, those…those bloodsuckers!” He started shaking uncontrollably, he gripped my door frame, and I could see it splintering from his grip. The shaking reminded me of what Jake used to do when he got really angry.

“Axton, please calm down. I’m sorry about what I said, just calm down. Please?” I asked, his shaking was frightening me and I didn’t know what to do. What if he hit me? And why did he call the Cullen’s bloodsuckers?

“Bella, step away from him. Go into the apartment.” I could hear Edward say from behind Axton, almost like a growl. I did as he said, slowly walking back into the safety of my living room.

“If you want to keep your limbs, I suggest you calm down and leave…NOW!” Edward ordered Axton.

“Leave so you can kill her?” Axton shot back. He was gradually becoming more stable. He wasn’t shaking as bad anymore.

“The only thing she is in danger of is you.” Edward growled. “Again, if you do not leave, I will make you leave.” I didn’t doubt for a second that Edward wouldn’t make him leave, one way or another.

“Leaving. Bella, don’t say I didn’t warn you when you’re lying lifeless and drained in a set up made to look like a car accident.” And with that Axton stalked off, glaring at Edward as he left.

“What the hell?!” I couldn’t hold it back.
