11. He's Back

Rating 0/5   Word Count 2600   Review this Chapter

I awoke on bench, it was cold and hard. I tried desperately to remember the last events. Why did I pass out anyway?

It suddenly came flooding back to me. I looked around and caught my angel looking down on me. I was draped across his lap. He held me in his arms, close to his chest. My fingers were locked around his collar, not willing to let go of him, of this wonderful dream.

The dance, who came up behind me, and then me passing out and landing into someone's cold arms. It all seemed like a dream. I would probably wake up in a few minutes, passed out on the hard, gym floor, with the whole student body staring down at me. Jacob would be worried sick and it would be the new gossip of Forks High school.

I looked back up into his eyes and began to cry. Could this be real? Could he really be back? Is this all a dream? Why can’t I wake up?

“Bella, my angel, why are you crying?” he velvety voice comforted me. His thumb wiped gently across my cheek, catching a single tear about to fall onto his black, tailored, dress pants. His touch left a trail of warmth across my cheek.

“Edward, ar-are you… really h-ere… with me? What happened? Why are you back? Am I dreaming? This couldn’t be…” he caught me off mid-sentence.

“Bella, I’m really here. You aren’t dreaming, I promise. I came back, because I love you. I came back because I want to be with you, that is if you still want me.”

“I have to be dreaming, this can’t be real. You don’t love me. You left me. You told me yourself. I want to wake up, please let me wake up, now.” I whimpered, trying to wiggle myself awake, but Edward held me firmly in place.

“I’ll prove this is real and that I love you truly.” He dropped his head down to me and before I could even respond his perfect lips swallowed mine.

This kiss didn’t follow any of the rules. It left me breathless. I started to open my mouth and my arms wound around his neck and at first he didn’t stop me. He pulled me closer and I squashed against his cold chest. He signed into my mouth with relief. Then he drew back and sighed heavily.

His forehead leaned against mine, resting there. His breath blew into my face, stunning me once more.

“Wow,” I breathed.

“I missed that.” His breath blew on my neck and made me shiver. My mind went blank. Then something flashed into my head, like it was waiting for me to discover it.

“Oh my gosh, where is Jacob?” I could see the hurt look in his eyes, but I didn’t care at the moment. What if they hurt him? Would they think he was trying to harm me? No, I went to a dance with him. A voice behind us answered me.

“I’m over here Bella.” Without thinking about it I jumped out of Edward lap and launched myself at Jacob. He caught me in a bear hug; steady me as I stumbled to him.

“It’s ok, Bella.” Jacob comforted me. I felt cold arms draw me backwards, away from Jacob.

“Watch out Bella, he may not be safe.” Edward drew me against his chest, still holding one wrist in his unbreakable grasp.

“It’s ok, Edward. Jacob would never hurt me. He’s ok.”

“She’s right I would never hurt her, unlike you. You filthy bloodsucker.” Jacob shot back at him.

“Hey!” I shouted it a bit too loud. Alice came running from around the corner, but stopped far enough away. She stayed back with Jasper her side, a comforting arm around her waist.

“Bella, I need to talk to you alone.” Edward muttered in my ear.

“Ok, Jacob can you give us some privacy, please. Just go wait down there by the tables. I promise I’ll be ok.” I took his hand and squeezed it. He squeezed back, giving me a tentative smile.

He came forward and gave me a deep kiss on the lips. He opened his mouth and I did too. I had forgotten that Edward was standing next to us, until he let out a growl. I figured that was Jacob’s intent. I pulled back, smiling sheepishly, but blushing furiously.

I tried to smile back as best as I could manage, but I failed when I looked in to his nervous eyes. I had to choose, but how could I.

Edward took my hand, giving it a slight tug, and walked me over towards the forest. We went about a foot of the way into the brush before he threw me onto his back; I didn’t even have time to protest. And he was off, flying through the forest. I didn’t even have time to close my eyes.

All too soon, we arrived at his meadow. He removed my death grip from around his neck and cradled me in his arms before setting me on my feet. He sat down next to me. The moonlight made the meadow as beautiful as it was when the sun shone on it.

Edward was also slightly glowing as the moon downcast upon him. We sat and stared at each other for what felt like hours. He broke the silence first, still holding my gaze.

“Bella, I don’t know really how to put this so it sounds right or isn’t overwhelming, but I’m going to try. Bella… I love you. I love you with all I have. I’m sorry I left you, but you have to understand that I left you because I loved you so much. I left you so you would be safe, so you could have a normal life. I came back because; I couldn’t stay away, especially knowing what I had done to you. What I said in the forest that day, it was all a lie, I promise you. I didn’t mean it, I love you so much. And I want you to have this, even if you don’t love me anymore, or if you can’t after all that I have done to you.”

He swiftly took out a small box from inside his jacket. It looked like a ring box. Oh my god!

“Edward… are you proposing to me?” the words kind of came out in a squeak.

“No, it’s a promise ring. I meant to give it to you for your birthday, but I never got the chance.” He smiled at me.

He opened the black box to the most amazing ring ever. It was a thin band that had a ring of sapphires and diamonds surrounding it. It was the same color of his favorite blue shirt that I used to wear to please him. I slipped it on to my index finger and watched as the moonlight made it sparkle. I began to cry, I couldn’t hold in the tears that streamed down my face all too quickly.

“Bella, what’s wrong? Is it something I said? Can you still love me after all that I have done?”

“Edward I never stopped loving you for a second. But you can’t just take me to our meadow, give me a ring, and tell me you still love me and expect me to just dump Jacob and come back to you like that.” He smiled at the first part, but it slowly demised as I spoke the rest.

“Why the hell not? Bella please just tell me do you still love me or not? If you do we will worry about the rest later, but if you don’t… I'll leave. I’ll let you be alone with Jacob, if he is the one you really love now. I won’t get in-between that. I just need to know if you still love me.”

“Edward, like I said before, I never stopped loving you. The love I feel for Jacob will never compare to the love I feel for you, but I can’t just dump everything for you. Jacob took care of me when you left me. He helped me not cry over you everyday, he helped the gashing whole inside of me. He repaired me as much as he could. I can’t just forget about him, even if I love you with all I have.”

I was the truth I loved Edward, but I loved Jacob too. I couldn’t even imagine the pain I would put him in when this was all said and done. I had to choose and unfortunately I knew who it would be in the end.

“Bella, I love you. I know that you can’t just dump him, you…care about him, but can you still love me too. Do you even want to be with me?” I could see this was killing him.

He thought that I didn’t love him, that Jacob was more important to me. I had to make this as clear as possible. I placed my hand in his. Immediately, there was that spark that always took away my thought process.

“Edward, I love you. I love Jacob like a brother or a best friend. I want to be with you. I thought about you everyday you were gone; I thought you would never come back. But I can’t just forget Jacob completely. I want to be friends with him, and I can imagine that that will be hard for you. I ju…” I was cut short by his perfect lips. He came down on top of me and we both rolled over into the grass. This kiss wasn’t as careful as the others, but still careful.

I didn’t stop him, how could I. I had been waiting for his kiss, his touch for every second he was gone. His hand wound up my neck and got lost in my hair. Mine did the same; I pulled him closer to me, our chests pushed together.

When I started to cross the lines, he pulled back. This was probably good, because I needed to breathe, unlike him.

“I love you Bella, and I will spend the rest of eternity trying to win you back if that’s what it takes.”

“You don’t have to Edward, you already have me. You never lost me.”

“Really?” he grinned and pecked me on the lips once more.

“Really, but I will still see Jacob, but as a friend.”

“What ever you want. But it must be under my supervision.”

“Edward, I don’t think that is necessary.”

“Oh I think it is.” He lifted my wrist up to nose and took a deep breath.

“I have longed for your scent for far too long. I think it has gotten stronger. But you also smell like that vile werewolf. You need a long shower”

“Hey, I don’t smell and he doesn’t either.” I argued.

“Don’t defend him, please.”

“I will as much as I want to. I do love him, but in more of a brotherly way.”

“I wish you didn’t. I want you to be mine and only mine.” He wrapped his arms around me and rubbed my back, which made it hard to frame a full sentence. We were still lulled in the grass. But I could care less, when I was in his arms.

“I am only yours, but Jacob is my best friend and always will be. You cant’ change that. Not to make you upset, but you left and know you have to deal with the consequences, that would be Jacob.” I admitted truthfully.

“Yes, I know, and I am. It just takes some getting used to.” He picked up my hand that now held the luminous ring. “Do you like it?” he questioned.

“Edward, I can’t accept that. It’s too much.” I slipped back off the ring, offering it back to him, but he refused to take it back. It sure looked like an engagement ring as it gleamed in the darkness.

“Yes, you can. You will take it.” He slipped the ring back onto my second finger on my left hand.

“Thank you Edward, but it really is too much.”

“No it’s not. I love you.” He kissed me deeply and I kissed him back. I started to cross the lines when he pulled back.

“I love you Edward.”

“You have not idea. Later I will explain everything more thoroughly, but right now we have to decide what to do with the dog.”

Jacob… I will deal with him myself. I don’t think it will be to comforting to have you near him.”

“I think I should come with you. He may lose control when he hears this.”

“Jacob will not hurt me, Edward. He’ll be fine. You can be close by, but you will not be with me.”

“I will very close by.”

“Fine. I should probably go back to him.” I was dreading this more than ever. I was going to hurt him so bad. But I would make it clear that we will still be best friends more than ever.

“Not yet, I want just a few more minutes alone with my angel.” He smiled at me and kissed my nose, than my forehead, and down my cheek. He kissed down my jaw line and lastly lingering around my lips. I felt like I may pass out. He kissed down my neck and back up it. He stopped by my pulse and breathed in deeply.

“Edward, not that I’m not enjoying this thoroughly, I really should go tell Jacob. But hold on to that thought for later tonight. You will be at my house tonight, right?”

“I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Speaking of that I think we should tell Charlie… everything.”

“We, yes, he should probably know your back.” I was confused when he said everything. Did he mean tell him that he spent every night in my room? I think that would be a very bad idea. Charlie would go ballistic.

“No, although we need to tell him that too, but I mean everything… about me… about my family, what we are.” Was he serious?

“NO, why and the world would we do that?”

“We should Bella, it might make things a bit easier to explain my disappearance and it would make tings easier so we don’t have to hide everything.”

“But… he… Charlie… why… he might never let me see you again.”

“I won’t let that happen. I going to talk to Carlisle to tomorrow and see what he thinks. But I think he has the right to know, don’t you?”

“NO! I don’t think so. He’ll deal with it.”

“Bella, let’s argue about this tonight. We just got back together and I don’t want to fight.”

“Fine. I should go tell Jacob about the new… situation.”

“Right, climb on my back.” I did so (which is quite difficult in a dress and earrings that seemed to weigh a lot more because I knew where they were from) and he took off immediately.

I had to think about what I was going to say to him. I didn’t know what to say.

We ran through the clearing of the forest. I saw Jacob and he looked like he knew exactly what was going to happen. This was going to be awful. I didn’t know if I could do this. I began to cry, but held most of the tears in, except for one. It trickled down my cheek. Jacob noticed.
