Back to Bella's POV!!! sorry, i was trying to see if i could write like a guy...i cant. enjoy!
Looking back at what has happened over the past few months, I can safely say, that this was not how I imagined seeing Edward again. In my head, I would be expecting it, and I would look…well…like I do now, but I’d at least have time to prepare. But, once again, the fates play a game on me, and make me walk into the conversation he was having with Seth…worse, Carlisle, Emmet, Jasper, Jacob, Sam and the others were there too.
All in all…not how I planned it.
Lying on my bed, I replayed all the events which may have lead up to this. The দিন after Nate told me about our fates, the pain of the constant shrinking, the hair changing…that one was a bit much.
But I remembered something from a couple of days ago, which may have lead to this behavior.
“Seth what are আপনি doing?” Leah was lying on the floor, rummaging through my clothes for something to wear, when she noticed Seth skulking in the doorway.
He shuffled his weight nervously from foot to foot.
“I…I was just wondering what আপনি guys were doing and…” his eyes looked over his shoulder nervously.
I looked up from my book at the tone of his voice. He was really embarrassed…or nervous, now that I think about it.
“What is it Seth?” my voice was layered with concern, and saw him mildly flinch away from the kindness in my voice, though I guess after hanging out with Leah non-stop, it must make people think you’re gonna act like that too. “What’s wrong?”
Leah got to her feet and went straight into his face, trying to decipher what was on his face. He cringed back from the closeness and looked at the floor.
“Edward called…” he ব্যক্ত quietly.
I froze. Edward called? Edward called here?
Leah hissed and threw a disgusted look at her brother. His friendship with the ভ্যাম্পায়ার was something she couldn’t possibly imagine...neither could I.
“They’re…” he hesitated…that should have tipped me off. If only I had learnt how to read peoples minds that day. “They’re almost finished with the job in Denali…they should be coming back soon…” he trailed off and looked awkwardly out the door.
“Hah!” Leah snorted. “They better not come anywhere near Bella অথবা Emily, অথবা I will rip there throats out.” She sounded so tough, yet she still sounded a teensy bit relived that Sam was okay. “I may have to do what Sam and Jacob say, but it doesn’t mean I can’t make it hurt…a little.”
She grinned at me impishly, and I couldn’t help but smile back.
“Don’t forget I’m coming over at eight thirty in the morning okay?” I asked trying to change the subject for something less hurtful. I didn’t want to সরানো out of Charlie’s house, but with the whole you-can’t-tell-your-family-members-that-you-have-envoked-your-magical-birthright-and-are-in-danger-of-killing-people-with-your-temper…it was safer for me to সরানো in with a houseful of male witches, rather than Aunt Lena and Josephine.
Leah rolled her eyes.
“Yes Bella, I won’t forget…just make sure everything’s packed…I hate packing boxes.” She grumbled.
I laughed and heard the phone ring again.
“I’ll get it this time baby brother…” Leah ব্যক্ত teasingly.
She really was a nice person…when আপনি caught her off guard. She left the room, leaving me alone with Seth. He was still staring at the floor, so I shifted my gaze to the window.
“He asked about you, আপনি know.” Seth’s voice as barely audible, but I heard him.
I flicked my gaze back to him, and saw that he was looking at me knowingly. “That a fact?” I asked trying to sound nonchalant, which to my surprise, I did better than I thought I did.
He frowned at me. “Bella, আপনি should really talk to him…he’s worried that you’ve died অথবা something…Alice can’t see আপনি ‘coz your always here…just call him. And Jacob. Please.”
I just stared at him, not moving, not even blinking. Of course Alice couldn’t see me any more; my powers block her gift, which is helpful in most ways, but a burden in others. Well, at least now I know why Edward can’t read my thoughts. Leah bounded around the corner.
“Get up Barbie, we gotta go.” Her voice was excited, yet weary.
I looked at her curiously.
“Where are we going?” my voice matched my attitude.
“Emily’s,” she ব্যক্ত shaking her head. “Ultrasound today and she needs a ride, and as I drove আপনি here, unless আপনি wanna stay here and hang out with Seth…?”
I got to my feet quickly and grabbed my new purse.
I shook my head trying to clear the memory, and flipped my legs off the বিছানা first, my body following after. One good thing about being a witch…I’m not clumsy anymore. I can actually play sports without anyone getting hurt. I headed put the door to the রান্নাঘর looking for something for breakfast. Nate and the others must still be asleep. I smiled and shook my head. It wasn’t so bad living with 4 boys. One was a relative so I was used to it. Thailer was his best friend from childhood, who was like another relative. I had a brief flashback of Nate and Thai threatening to beat up Johnny Davidson when he pushed me over on the play ground. I know Ben from school, and I have to admit, the growth spurt did wonders for his reputation at school. Thackery was…different. He was the eldest of us দ্বারা a long shot. Nearly 325 and doesn’t look a দিন over 19. He was the leader of our coven. I shuddered slightly as I ব্যক্ত the word coven.
It sounded so…gothic.
A car horn beeped and snapped me out of my trance, and a voice in my head made me all to aware that the boys weren’t asleep.
‘Bella, we haven’t got all day, we’ve been waiting for ages! Get your বই and let’s go!’ Ah Nate, always the patient one.
“Okay, okay…” I grumbled walking back to my room to get my books.
Thai had a vision of what the Cullen’s and Quileute’s were going to do next. Who would think that Emmet, Jasper and Sam going to the school under-cover to spy on me would be there plan?
But going under-cover as teachers aid, after only just completing school, was just plain insane!
But as soon as they decided that, so did Thai, Thackery and Nate. It takes two to tango…well in this case it takes six. Jasper was going under cover as a Science helper…so was Thackery.
Sam was the Spanish aid…so was Thai.
Emmet was the one where my jaw nearly dropped straight off my face. Gym. He hated throwing sports, and now he has to teach it! And then Nate, my flesh and blood relative was going to do it as well!
Whereas Ben and I, had to avoid all of the Cullen’s and Quileute’s as much as what is possible.
They had changed both of our time-tables so that we were in all of each others classes, and in hardly any of theirs. I grabbed my bag and rushed out to the car, wishing and hoping that they weren’t there, that yesterday was just a terrible dream.
Sure, ‘coz everything goes the way I want it.
I spotted Jacob’s old Rabbit and Edward’s shiny Volvo the সেকেন্ড we pulled into the car park. My heartbeat accelerated in a way which means I should be dead. Nate looked at me in the rear vision mirror, his eyes wide and anxious.
‘Bella, calm down. Everything’s gonna be fine, I promise.’ I concentrated on keeping my breathing even, and tried to calm myself down.
‘Very good Bells.’
‘Keep going, your hearts almost right now.’
‘everything will be fine…trust me.’
Thackery, Thai and Ben kept encouraging me, until I opened my eyes and smiled at them.
“Let’s go.” I sighed. We hopped out of the car and headed toward the administration building. Ben and I got our new time tables as Nate, Thackery and Thai went to their meeting with Mr. Greene, our principal. Ben was প্রদর্শিত হচ্ছে me his as the front door opened and the most wonderful scent I had ever smelled flowed trough the door.
My head snapped up and I caught sight of Emmet, Jasper and Sam, all standing just as still as Ben and I were.
“Ah Mr. Cullen, Mr. Hale and Mr. Uley I presume?” Ms. Cope’s voice, not two feet behind me, made me jump a foot in the air. “Oh, sorry Ms. Swan. Right this way gentleman.” She opened the principal’s door and waited for them to move. I caught Ben’s eye as he moved first, walking between Emmet and Sam. He waited দ্বারা the door and beckoned me forward. I sucked in a deep breath and followed his lead. I walked at a steady human pace, but as soon as I walked near Emmet and Sam, they moved just a fraction closer to me, so I moved faster, and was out of the door before even a সেকেন্ড had passed.
I ran to first period with Ben on my heels, it probably looked weird, but I was too panicked to notice. It wasn’t until Ben caught hold of my জ্যাকেট and stopped my running, that I realized we weren’t getting followed.
He looked at my face, the looked to the left and laughed. I shook my head, trying to figure out what he was laughing at.
“What?” he was still laughing, but I had no idea at what.
“This is our first class and everything…”he ব্যক্ত between is chuckles.
I started laughing to, laughing was better than panicking.
“Come on, we’ll go in there and pretend we’re doing our homework…”
I let him drag me in দ্বারা the arm.
“Shouldn’t আপনি find Angela?” I asked hesitantly. Things haven’t been going well in that department.
He turned and half smiled at me.
“Will আপনি be okay if I go? I won’t be long?”
Before I could answer I heard Thackery’s voice in my head.
‘Ben! Do not leave Bella alone. Stay with her at all cost! What class do আপনি have first?’
Ben rolled his eyes at me, and I giggled.
‘We have Science first,’ I thought, still giggling physically. ‘so I guess we’ll be seeing আপনি soon Teach.’ I added wryly.
We heard the all the boy’s mental laugh, before there attention was called back to the meeting.
I saw Mr. Greene sitting behind his huge mahogany ডেস্ক facing Thai, Thackery, Nate, Emmet, Jasper and Sam. I could only imagine the feelings Jasper was feeling at that present moment.
‘Now, there will be two of আপনি boys in a class. Mr. Hale and Mr. Danity, আপনি to will be doing Science first and third session.’ I saw Jasper glance at Thackery with an apprehensive glance, and saw Thackery grin at him evilly, and Jaspers response to that was just what was to be expected. He bared his teeth, and tried to control his snarl building up in his throat. Mr. Greene kept going, not knowing what was happening. ‘Mr. Uley and Mr. Jackson will be doing Spanish, সেকেন্ড and third session,’ Sam and Thai exchanged a brief glance, not a mean glance, but a wary kind of resigned look. ‘While Mr. Cullen and Mr. রাজহাঁস here,’ I saw Emmet, Jasper and Sam exchange a shocked glance at Nate’s last name. ‘Will be doing Gym third and fourth session, any questions?’ he looked at all of the boys sitting in his office, waiting for a প্রশ্ন when the ঘণ্টা rang loud and shrill. ‘Well boys, have a good day. If আপনি don’t have a class, feel free to walk around the school, observe other classes if it’s okay with other teachers, অথবা make yourself comfortable in the teachers lounge. Bye.’
People were starting to file into our classroom so Ben and I grabbed a টেবিল at the back, and tried to look as if we were just doing homework. I kept my eyes down just in case any of them were in this class, which was a good thing, as there were 3 in this class. I caught their scents before I saw their faces. I glanced up from under my lashes, and saw Jacob, Leah and Edward walk in the classroom, their eyes scanning the room as they walked. As soon as they looked my direction, I locked my eyes on the ডেস্ক again, and didn’t সরানো an inch. I heard the soft sound of their feet on the floor. There were only three tables left, and one of them was directly in front of Ben and me, while the others were on either side of us.
I heard the chairs সরানো ever so silently, and I figured it would be নিরাপদ to look up. Alice’s short inky black hair was right in front of me, while Angela sat পরবর্তি to her. I shifted my gaze to the left and saw Jacob sitting at the টেবিল on Ben’s side with Tyler Crowley. I looked to the right from the corner of my eye, and saw Edward sitting not two feet from me, sitting পরবর্তি to a bewildered Mike Newton.
My breathing started to accelerate just a tiny bit.
‘Calm down Bella.’ Ben was thinking frantically. He wouldn’t be able to stop me if I got too mad.
“I’m trying…” I whispered almost silently, but Jacob, Edward and Alice all looked up at the sound of my voice.
Angela turned around to face me.
“Hey Bella, how are you?” she smiled at me, she knew about the new friendship between me and Ben now, and was cool about it.
I smiled back. “I’m fine thanks Ange, how about you?”
“Oh, I’m great. Hey, can I ask আপনি a favor?” her tone turned hopeful.
How could I refuse that face?
“Sure, what’s up?” I was honestly curious now.
“Um…” she hesitated and I saw Edward সরানো a tiny bit, trying to hide his expression. “Do আপনি mind if I sit পরবর্তি to Ben? I need to talk to him about something…” she trailed off still looking hopeful.
Suddenly my head was very crowded, filled with very angry, upset boys.
‘No fricken way!’
I tried to tune them out, they were giving me a head ache. I glanced at Ben, who looked as hopeful as Angela did. I smiled and turned back to her.
“Sure thing, Angie.” I grabbed my things and got to my feet. I heard Edward’s breath intake as he saw the graceful moment and I cursed my self internally for changing.
“Thanks Bella!” Angela enthused as she swapped seats. She was in mine before I took a step. I nodded and moved warily to the আসন in front of me. I could tell from her expression that Alice was totally thrilled at this new predicament. I put my things down on the ডেস্ক and sat down slowly. I didn’t সরানো my eyes from the floor during the entire movement.
This was going to be a long lesson.
