I quickly turned my head away. Just feeling his presence near me, makes me want to melt.
"Bella. Look at me." He placed his hand on to my arm, before he jerked back. I looked up, to see Johnson holding him back.
"Get away." He growled into Edward's ear. Even if I didn't see him for such a long time, it still hurt me to see Edward in so much pain like this. It shouldn't, in fact bother me at all, but for some strange reason, I felt like hitting Johnson in the face for even putting a hand on Edward.
"But... Bella." He said, in that smooth velvety voice, the one he used to use on me, to get what he wanted. It didn't work now. Sure, he had the same physical features that he always had, but this time, I can see that he was different. His insides were completely different. Not at all like the Edward that I remember and used to love.
"No." I said. I finally found my voice now. "You hurt me. And 당신 left me. And if 당신 EVER think that I could just forgive 당신 that easily, 당신 have another thing coming." I saw his face literally drop, and his shoulders slump. He looked from happy, jolly, to as sad as can be within 10 seconds. I felt sorry for him, no matter how much I chanted the last few sentences I just said in my mind.
I turned around to avoid his eyes and ran. I know I wasn't as fast as Edward, but now that I know he's not chasing me, speed isn't really what I needed. When my house came into view, I slowed down. Eliza was standing outside, probably hearing all the noise that we created. Her hearing was way better than any vampire I have ever met.
"Bella... What's wrong?" asked Eliza. I just shook my head. I didn't want her to see me weak. I ran upstairs and closed the door to my room. It didn't have a bed. Just thousands upon thousands of books. It's really easy to read them at vampire speed.
I heard a knock on the door. I had recgonized the different sounds of the footsteps that everybody made. This one was dainty, Serena's. "Hey, Bell, can I come in?" I opened the door for her and she stepped inside. She sat on the floor and looked up at me.
"Huh. So Edward's back now..." She began, before I chucked a book at her. Sensitivity much? Why does she mention the name that I so desperately hated for such a long time. "Well, sorry. But, 당신 haven't seen him for so long. Shouldn't 당신 be slightly happy?" I sighed.
"Well, I don't know. I want to admit that I don't like seeing him, but that would be a lie. I just didn't imagine I would ever see him again."
"So, what you're saying is, that 당신 kinda like seeing him, but the point is, that 당신 never thought he'd come back for you?" I nodded. Even to a vampire, all of this was confusing me. I had no idea what I was supposed to do!
"My advice? Stay away from him. For a whole 년 he left you, and for your own good? 당신 can't get anymore cheesier than that. But looking at his face now, it looks like he made a huge mistake. Let him suffer." She winked. Serena knows what she is talking about. Back in her past life, she had many boyfriends. All of them ended up in disaster. Now that she has Johnson she realizes how stupid the other guys were for not wanting her. Clearly, according to Johnson, she's the best.
After sitting in silence for a while, Serena left. "You're going to be okay?" She asked, full of concern.
"Yes. I'll be thinking." I replied, already deep in thought. After a while, I figured out my answer. I decided to go with the most logical one. All I needed was my families's opinion on what they think would be the right choice.
"Hey guys?" I heard shuffling coming from different parts of the house, and very unmentionable sounds. Soon, everybody was standing in front of the door to my bedroom. Lucas got to stay at 집 with a firetruck just outside our house. He only did his job whenever he had to. At night, he would patrol the area, wherever we were, looking for
"So as some of 당신 may know, we had an encounter with a group of people today, something that I didn't want to see. Now if 당신 don't know, we'll fill 당신 in later." 'We know,' Eliza mouthed. I nodded. "Anyways, I have decided that I am not going to talk to Edward again."
Suddenly, there was a burst of cheering, like the finish of a good play. "Woo!" They said. "Go Bell." yelled Johnson. Nathan even hugged me.
"But there's still one problem..." I said, which brought everybody's mood down. "What am I going to do with Edward at school?" I asked. They all exchanged glances, like there was an inside joke that I was the only one who didn't know about it. "What?" Smiles began to creep on to Johnson and Nathan's faces. Realization hit me. "What did 당신 guys do?"
"Bella." The devil named Edward said, stopping all of us in our tracks. He wasn't who I was expecting though. Since Mom's memory had faded over the past years, she couldn't clearly explain Edward to me. I was expecting one of those evil vampires, like the Volturi, who tried to kill me. With blood thirsty eyes and a black cape. Of course, he was nothing like that. He seemed like a normal vegetarian vampire.
"Bella. Look at me." he said, to my mother who refused to stare up into his eyes. I knew she wanted to leave, and Johnson created a distraction. He put Edward into a headlock and she finally looked up. My mom seemed to be in physical pain to see him like that.
"Get away." growled Johnson. Because of his large size, people tend to stay away from him.
"But... Bella." This guy would just not let down. Does he not understand what we were doing?
"No. 당신 hurt me. And 당신 left me. And if 당신 EVER think that I could just forgive 당신 that easily, 당신 have another thing coming." Silently, in my head I was thinking 'Go Mom!' but I had to keep a straight face. She stared at Edward for a little 더 많이 before she turned and left. We all stood in silence for a few seconds, before Serena followed her.
"So, Edward, my boy." said Johnson, still holding on to him. "How's it going?" he asked.
"Let me go." he said, angrily. Johnson laughed evilly. Quickly, he changed into a dinosaur, ancient things, and stomped on Edward. Since he was invincible to most things, it did no damage. Then I realized what I was thinking. "NO! DON'T!" yelled Edward. He must've read my mind like mom told us he could do.
Quickly, making a 불, 화재 ball, I threw it against Edward. He burnt, slightly. I didn't want to kill him... yet. As I was beginning to make another one the balls, I felt something stop me. Something ramming against my side. I fell to the ground, but didn't feel a thing. Since I was a hybrid, it was probably because that guy didn't hit hard enough.
"Edward! Let's GO!" A guy, as big as Johnson was helping Edward off his feet, and they speeded away into the forest before I got a good look at him. What was that?
"Well..." I began after they finished explaining what had happened to Edward. "Using your powers for evil Nathan?" I was really surprised at him. He just stared at the floor. "At least, now he'll know not to mess with my family." I said and hugged him. He laughed, along with the rest of them.
"I do have one 질문 though," said Johnson. "How did that big guy know where to find Edward? Was he following us 또는 something?" I rolled my eyes teasingly.
"Must I explain everything? I'm pretty sure that he wasn't, 또는 else we would've heard his giant footsteps. Remember Alice?" I waited for them to say something, but silence. "Well, Alice is the physic vampire of the Cullens. She probably saw that Edward was in danger, and called Emmett, the big one who crashed into you, to save him. That's only my guess. I could have never been too sure with them."
"Oh, I'm sorry to interrupt this explaining time but I must get to go. There's somebody in trouble." said Lucas. No he wasn't physic too. He just had a pager. "Tell me everything later?" he asked Eliza, who just kissed him in response.
"Eww..." Nathan and I squealed together. We acted like such 아기 sometimes. Everyone rolled their eyes. They knew that I was never going to get a boyfriend of any type, so they tried to get Nathan to get one. Fortunately, there weren't any hybrids. Less people to explain all these complex vampire things to.
"Bella. 당신 sure about this decision? I'm sure we would all trust your judgment. After all, 당신 have known him longer than the rest of us." said Eliza, taking in consideration my feelings. She might've thought that I was doing this for them.
"Yes, I am. I am doing this for myself. And I hope that I will not regret this decision. I hope it is one of those decisions that will follow me forever in a good way. Like the one about moving to Florida." They smiled at me. I could tell that everyone was relief that I wouldn't go crawling back to Edward like a desperate person because that fact is, I'm not. I could go the rest of my life without having someone mention Edward. Sadly that wasn't the case. Nearly right after I promised to not talk to him, I spoke. And people were not happy that I did.
