"Bella hurry up we are going to be late to your best friend's engagement party if you don't get a move on."
"Look Jake I will be down in a minute, we won't be late I swear."
My name is Isabella Swan, Bella to anyone that knows me. Jake is my finance and has been for the past year, I'm getting ready for Alice's and Jaspers engagement party, Alice and I have been friends since we were kids and I could not imagine life without her. I am not however looking forward to this party, I absolutely hate parties and this will be a family event which means Alice's older adopted brother Edward will be there.
"Edward" I mumbled his name quietly.
I had been very good friends with Edward when we were younger, no good friends would be lying, I was in love with Edward up until 3 years ago when we were both 19, that was until the night that ruined everything.
KNOCK....KNOCK KNOCK...... KNOCK
I woke up to somebody pounding heavily on the door
"Bella open the door I need to talk to somebody."
I got out of bed and padded to the door slightly bleary eyed with sleep wondering what could be wrong with Edward this time, when I opened it Edward was stood there swaying from side to side, he had one hand shaped into a fist about to knock again the other hand holding a nearly empty bottle of Jack Daniels.
"Edward what are you doing at my apartment getting me out of bed at 2.00 in the morning."
"Lauren broke up with me again." he replied slurring his words ever so slightly.
I held back the urge to roll my eyes; I was irrevocably in love with Edward, Edward however didn't seem to know I existed I was just the best friend, the girl he always went to in his hour of need, the shoulder he always cried on.
"Edward, just because Lauren broke up with you for the third time this month does not mean that you should turn to drinking, where did you even get it from, you're under age for Christ's sake."
"Emmett." was his only reply.
"You'd better come in then I suppose."
I opened the door wide enough for him to fit through and then swiftly closed it after he had entered. He stumbled over to the couch and threw himself down on it rather heavily. I joined him a few seconds later.
"You're really beautiful do you know that." whispered Edward
"How much have you had to drink?" I asked
He shrugged both his shoulders and simply replied "You never have seen yourself very clearly you always say you're just plain old Bella Swan, uninteresting and boring. Look Bella that's not true and it's not just the drink talking you're so beautiful."
And then he leaned down and kissed me full on the lips.
"Edward" I moaned jerking my head back. "You're drunk and you certainly shouldn't be here kissing me when you and Lauren will be back on by morning."
"Bella I think I'm in love with you." he pleaded "please I really want this, I really want an us." he whispered kissing me again.
I couldn't breathe; Edward Cullen the love of my life was kissing me, me plain, boring Bella Swan. He was kissing me and telling me he loved me. I know he was drunk but I longed for this for so long one thing led to another, clothes ended up discarded on the floor and the next thing I knew he was carrying me to my room.
As I woke up I registered that both me and Edward were in my bed half naked his arm draped across my stomach, I smiled remembering what had happened last night. Yes Edward and I had finally slept together. I was a virgin, wanting to save myself for the man I loved and last night I gave my virginity to that man. My stomach growling stirred me from my thoughts; I managed to wriggle free from his grip and went to make some coffee and some breakfast.
He stumbled in the kitchen fully dressed not long after the coffee had been made; I smiled at him and shyly whispered "Good Morning."
"Lauren just phoned me." he said in a monotone holding up his mobile as if to enforce his words with actions.
"She wants to talk."
I merely nodded.
"Look Bella, what happened last night shouldn't have happened I was drunk, upset and I probably shouldn't have come here."
I stared at him open mouthed "but last night you told me you loved me, you told me I was beautiful."
"You are beautiful, and I do love you you're my best friend" he said emphasizing the best friend.
"GET OUT" I screamed.
I couldn't believe him, what did he think this was a game, how could he toy with my feelings like this, I'd saved myself for him, I loved him, last night I thought he loved me. I guess I was wrong.
"OUT NOW" I shouted pushing him towards the door.
"Bella please, can we just talk."
"NO, GET OUT KNOW."
I shoved him towards the door opened it and with one final shove, pushed him into the corridor outside. I then resolved to slamming the door in his face and crumpled against the door sobbing hysterically.
"Bella" Jake's voice shook me from my thoughts. "We need to leave, come on."
"Alright, alright I'm coming." I hollered back.
I grabbed my purse and headed towards the stairs, bracing myself for the party and having to see Edward for the first time in 3 years.
