"Damn it! Stupid Mutts we waited at the border and they didn't even show up. Just shows how reliable they really are! Didn't even come to see why six vampires were at the treaty line," Rosalie yelled, but not loud enough to wake Bella. So that explained why they were so angry; they hadn't come to talk to them.
"Carlisle why didn't they come to see why you were there?" I asked.
"To tell the truth I don't know, but it seemed there were three other vampires on the reservation. Alice had a vision of three visitors while we were there so that could be the only thing I can think of that would keep them from coming to see what we wanted," he shrugged.
"Why are they here?" I growled.
"They're just passing through Edward I don't believe they'll hurt anyone in Forks," he explained.
"Edward why is your shirt wet?" Alice asked horrified.
I rolled my eyes; she was always so worried about clothes even though we only wore them once. "Bella was crying, and I came in the room to check on her. I went over, and held her for a while she cried, and my shirt got wet," I told her.
"Edward was that really the best idea; I mean the way her blood calls to you, you could have killed her at any second?" Esme asked afraid for Bella.
I smiled at her "I've gotten better at being around her, and at that moment I was more worried about her crying then the thirst," everyone stared at me for a moment, and there were no thoughts. Complete silence in the whole house apart from Bella's breathing and heart beat.
"How did you do that; forget the blood?" Emmett was the first to speak.
"I didn't say it wasn't there just that I was worried about her. My throat was scorching the whole time I was in there, and even after I left the room her smell still lingered on my shirt," I explained quickly they all thought I had surpassed Carlisle with my self control when I had done nothing even close to that. I then turned my attention to Alice, "Alice when will the three of them be leaving?"
She frowned slightly, "They haven't decided how long they'll be stay yet so no, but as soon as they decide I'll know."
"Thank you Alice," I sighed, "So we have no more information about what's going on with Bella at all?"
"No, but I don't believe the rest of them know what he's doing if they did they would have stopped him by now," Carlisle explained.
"Edward!" Rosalie called in her head, "Are you sure that you don't likeher more then you should? You were worried about her enough to resist her blood even at how close you were to her," she smiled at me.
I stared at Rosalie; the idea that I was interested in her had never crossed my mind for why I hadn't killed her last night, but Alice hadn't seen anything change in my future… before my thoughts could go any farther I heard Bella's breathing change.
"Well we will have to talk to them soon, but Bella's awake now," I informed them they nodded, and went to take their places. Esme, Alice, and Rosalie went to the kitchen, Carlisle went to his study, and Emmett, Jasper, and I went to the couch.
When I woke up it was six o'clock, and neither Alice nor Rosalie were there. I sat up, and grabbed my crutches, standing and got my bag of things. I quickly dressed in a pair of jeans and a dark blue long sleeved shirt. I went to the bathroom brushing through my hair, brushing my teeth, and putting cover up over the bruise on the side of my face. I made my way slowly down the stairs. I walked into the kitchen looking for Alice and Rosalie; they were sitting on bar stools, and Esme was cooking on the stove. "Good morning," I said as they all turned to look at me.
"Good morning to you too Bella, would you like some pancakes for breakfast?" Esme smiled.
"Sure, thank you," I smiled going to sit by Rose and Alice. "Did you already eat?" I asked them looking at the table there were no plates in front of them.
"Yes, just a while ago," Alice smiled, "Bella, do you want to go shopping today?"
"Um…I really don't shop," I told her it wasn't a lie; I wasn't a girl that shopped, but I was rarely outside of my house other than for school, or a hospital visit. I shuttered mentally.
"It will be fun we can go to Port Angeles, and go to the mall!" Alice exclaimed excitedly.
"Sure when do you want to go?" I asked.
"How about after you finish eating so we will have plenty of time to shop?"
"Sounds fine to me," I smiled.
Rose then leaned over to whisper in my ear, "I warned you, and your still going to get stuck playing Bella Barbie," she laughed quietly.
"I forgot all about that," I whispered back.
"Well since this is your first shopping expedition with Alice Cullen she might go easy on you," she snickered, "not."
Esme came over, and sat the pancakes in front of me; "Here you go Bella," she smiled.
"Thanks Esme," I took a bit. These were the best pancakes I'd ever eaten. "Esme these are delicious!" I told her.
"I'm glad you like them."
I ate them quickly, and put my dishes in the sink. Alice walked over beside me, "You ready to go?" she asked excitedly. "Yes, let's go," I grabbed my purse, and walked into the garage with Alice and Rose. We climbed into Rosalie's BMW, and began the drive to Port Angeles. "Bella," Alice began, "what do you usually wear?" she asked.
"A long sleeved shirt and a pair of jeans," she frowned not liking my answer.
"I'm really going to need to work on your wardrobe," Alice sighed shaking her head.
"Alice this is her first time shopping with you go easy on her!" Rose told her firmly.
"But Rosalie she needs new clothes," Alice whined exasperated.
I laughed slightly, "its okay Rosalie she's probably right," I shrugged deciding to go with it.
"Bella if you let her do this now she will just get worse every time," Rosalie warned me while Alice smiled.
"Please Bella!" Alice pleaded.
"Okay Alice," I gave in.
"So there," Alice said to Rose.
"You just signed yourself up for a day of pure hell," Rose laughed.
I glanced out the window, and saw the trees passing in a blur, and looked at the speedometer. It read one-hundred miles per hour. "Slow down!" I shouted. Alice and Rosalie laughed.
"Bella I drive like this all the time all of us do, and none of us have even been in a crash," she informed me smiling.
"Well Char…" I trailed off chocking on his name. "Well how do you never get tickets?" I asked recovering as quickly as possible so they didn't notice.
"We avoid police as much as possible, and if we do get a ticket we pay it, or find some way to get out of it," she shrugged.
"So Bella, Edward told me he talked to you last night," Alice said, and I immediately forgot about the conversation we were just having. I felt like a deer caught in the headlights of a car going a hundred miles an hour (like this one) that had no way to miss me.
"I…," pause for a moment thinking how to say it, "I was a little sad, and Edward came in, and talked to me," I explained it was true I was sad, but it was more than a little.
"Well I think Edward likes you," Rose told me, and I stared at her.
"What?" I asked perplexed there was no way that could even be slightly true.
"You are the first girl he has ever had even the slightest interest in," she explained.
"Just, because he held me for a little-while doesn't mean he likes me. It just means he cared about another human being."
"I still say he likes you, and we just entered Port Angeles," Rosalie told me then found a mall, and parked.
"Come on Bella," Alice said walking into a store. "Here," she said handing me a blue short sleeved shirt, jeans, and a dress that I'm sure I would have no reason to wear. I went, and tried on the blue shirt and a pair of jeans on first. As I looked down I saw the dark bruise on my wrist.
"Bella let me see!" Alice called from outside the dressing room. I covered the bruise up with me other hand, and winced when it made contact with the bruise. I walked out.
"That looks great I turned around then and let go of my bruised wrist so I could open the door to the dressing room, and Alice gasped, and Rose walked into the dressing room just then. "What happened to your wrist!" she asked rushing over.
I had no response. I couldn't think of any reason why I would have a bruise like that on me, but the truth. But the truth wouldn't help it would just get me and… I shivered mentally not able to finish the sentence to Charlie's threat long ago. "I held it too tight," I lied, and looking at the bruise it was far too big for my hand to have caused it.
"Bella the truth please?" Rose asked as she looked at me wrist.
"That's the only reason I remember for it to be there I don't know where it came from," I shrugged trying to sound casual.
"Fine go try the others on," Alice told me, and I walked back into the dressing room, and breathed a sigh of relief.
Bella turned, and went back into one of the stales in the dressing room. "Alice, what are we going to do?" Rose whispered in my ear.
"I don't know, but we have to talk to the rest of the family about this, and we need to talk to the pack, and find out what they know, or if they even know anything about it." Bella walked out wearing another outfit. The outfit complemented her body very nicely, "its looks great on you," I told her, and she went back in the dressing room.
Bella tried on the rest of the clothes, and Rose and I didn't bring up the bruise again, but we had to talk to the rest of the family about it. It was dark when we drove back home Bella had fallen asleep before we arrived. Rose and I didn't speak much we were both thinking about what to do.
"Bella were back," I told her when we got to the house. "Thanks Alice," she said groggily getting out of the car. I lead her up to my room she changed, and went to bed. She was extremely tired; she had been shopping for hours, and that had to be hard on a human. As soon as her head hit the pillow she was asleep, and I headed down stairs to talk to my family.
"So Alice what did you want to talk to us about?" Carlisle asked as he sat down at the table with the rest of us.
"Today when Bella was trying on clothes I saw a large bruise around her wrist. I know that she couldn't have done it herself it was far too big for her hand to have caused, or Charlie's, so Jacob is the only one who could have caused it." I explained, and waited for someone to say something.
"We need to go talk to the pack, and find out if they know anything," Emmett proposed.
"We should be able to talk to them the visitors have already gone though," Carlisle agreed. "Edward are you okay with staying with Bella, and do you believe you can control yourself around the wolves?" Carlisle asked him.
"I'm going to stay here Carlisle, and watch her just in case I can't control myself, and start a fight."
"Okay we'll tell you what happened when we get back" Carlisle told Edward, and he nodded.
We all took of then running to the treaty line. Less than five minutes later the wolves were there. Carlisle held up his hands, "We mean no harm we would just like to talk to you about something very important. They nodded, and ran back into the woods, and came back out in shorts.
"I'm Sam, the leader of the pack, what did you want to speak about?" he asked.
"I'm Carlisle, the leader in my family, and we would like to talk about one of the wolves. His name is Jacob Black," I told him as he watched my family carefully along with the two others standing behind him.
"Jacob hasn't phased for a while. He doesn't like what he has become he rejects it, and doesn't phase unless he has to," Sam explained.
"I was wondering if you know anything about him and a girl named Bella Swan?"
"Oh yea him and Bella are best friends, but I haven't seen her down here in a while"
"Well my family and I were wondering if you know anything about him ever hurting her," I asked and shock crossed his face. So they really didn't know what was going on.
"Jacob would never hurt Bella she is his friend," Sam growled.
"We don't know for sure, but we wanted to know if you knew anything about this thank you so much for your help," I told him and we left before this went any farther, and turned into a fight.
We ran back to the house after finding out that the pack had no idea that Jacob was doing anything. We needed Bella to tell us she was being abused before we could help without putting our family in danger. When we walked in the house Edward was sitting on the couch with his head in his hands. I walked over to him; "They didn't know anything about Jacob hurting Bella," he nodded without looking up.
"Edward are you okay?" Alice asked walking over to stand next to me.
"Fine just worried about what were going to do to help Bella, and about what you brought up earlier," he said finally looking at us.
"So are you interested in her?" I asked in my mind.
"I don't know Rose I'm confused. I care of course, but I'm not sure if it's more than that," he said, and dropped his head back in his hands.
"What are you two talking about?" Jasper asked.
I looked at Edward, and he didn't move so I had to explain. "I believe that Edward is interested in Bella, and that's why he was able to be so close to her, and not kill her."
"Really?" Esme asked happily.
Edward spoke then, "I'm not sure if I do or not. I was worried about her, and I care if she gets hurt, but I'm not sure if I interested in her the way Rosalie seems to believe."
"Edward we just want you to be happy, and we need to find some way to help Bella," Carlisle said. Esme was smiling she had hoped for so long Edward would find someone, and now it was possible he had.
"But we need to have her trust before she tells us," Emmett spoke for the first time.
We then heard a door closing.
I heard a door close upstairs. "Edward," Bella called, "Are you there?"
"Yes I'm down stairs I'll be right there," I called to her.
She was taking a step down stairs when I called up and she lost her balance. If she fell from the top step she would be hurt even worse, and if she landed wrong she would die. By the time the thoughts past through my head I was running. I caught her just before she landed on the other step.
"Are you okay?" I asked panicked.
"Yes I'm fine, but how did you get here so fast? You just said you were down stairs," and when she said this all the thoughts in the house stopped.
