A/N: Helloooo one and all, we meet again. I was so glad that you all seemed to approve of Renee's reaction but its yourselves you should be thanking, A lot of you suggessted that it would be more intresting If Renee actuactlly reacted well, all I did was put it into words.
I hope this proves to you guys that I do actually take on all your feedback and try to compromise so that as much people are happy, including myself.
There was a reccuring question in the reviews of whether there will be a proposal and I can all promise you, there defintely will be one so do not fear my friends. I haven't pin pointed the timing exactly but It will be soon.
So this is the much awaited first day back at school chapter, I've been looking forward to starting to introduce the other human characters like Mike, Jessica, Angela and Lauren for aaaaaages now.
I'm writing up this chap while everyone in my house asleep. Again. I wonder why I work better in the night. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that its the only time of day when the whole house is completly silent. Or maybe its just how I roll.
Sorry for the super late update. The month of May and June as a lot of you will surely know is when all your teachers think its best to pile on a shit load of assignment and deadlines within a small period of time. I've been trying to write up this chapter whenever I can find a moment to spare which is practically non-exsitent. As a thank you for your patience, you are all rewarded with a long chapter.
DISCLAIMER: I. Do. Not. Own. Twilight. God I hate saying those words but to my dismay as well as millions of people around the world there is only one rightful owner and that is Stephenie Meyer.
On with the chapter! :D
If life were but a dream, my Love,
And death the waking time;
If day had not a beam, my Love,
And night had not a rhyme, -
A barren, barren world were this
Without one saving gleam;
I'd only ask that with a kiss
You'd wake me from the dream.
If dreaming were the sum of days,
And loving were the bane;
If battling for a wreath of bays
Could soothe a heart in pain, -
I'd scorn the need of battle's might,
All other aims above
I'd choose the human's higher right,
To suffer and to love!
By Paul Laurence Dunbar
Bella and I stayed in the car for a couple of seconds, watching the students from the tinted windows as they gazed in awe of my Vanquish.
Dude, I knew the Cullens were loaded but damn, just how many sport cars do they own? Tyler Crowley thought as he gawked at my car along with every other males in the lot.
The girls on the other hand weren't awed by the actual car, more like how much it must of cost.
Oh my god, they're filthy rich. Bella is such a lucky bitch, not only does she get Edward who is like the most gorgeous guy like ever, but she probably like gets expensive gifts too! A girl called Katie thought
I groweled under my breath at the offensive word used towards my mate.
I wonder if its true that Bella lives with them now? I don't care, she has to spill when I ask her. This is gossip is some super hot stuff...
Of course this thought belonged to none other than Jessica Stanley. Her mind is quite determined to be the first to have all the "scoop" over the new piece of "hot gossip".
God I hope they broke up. He can't have stayed with her this long and not realised how plain and boring she is. Good thing I dumped Tyler, this will totally be the year that Edward Cullen falls for me. What's not to like? Lauren's snide mind thought.
God I want to ring her neck for thinking Bella is plain and undeserving of my love and not the exact oppissite. Of course her thoughts were purely constructed out of jealousy. I know that on a deeper level she knows that Bella is gorgeous.
"Jessica Stanley is planning on ambushing you in class" I told Bella who was looking strangely calm considering she usually hates attention.
"I would be surprised if she wasn't" she replied with a beautiful smile on her face, "come on, its time to face the music" she added in a jokingly dramatic voice as she she reached for the door handle.
"Wait!" I stopped her from opening the door. You'd think by now she would have gotten used to being treated like a lady.
Bella looked at me confusedly for a moment before her eyes lit up with understanding and she rolled her eyes at me. Without delay, I opened my door and briskly moved to Bella's side.
How is that he looks even hotter than I remember?
Ugh, It looks like they haven't broken up then since he's getting the door to the other side. Oh well, I bet could still convince him to leave her for me.
How could these people be so naïve? They've all seen that Bella and I are more than happily in love yet they still manage to delude themselves into thinking that they have a chance.
I tried - the main word being tried to block out the loud babble of thoughts of Forks High school pupils just as I was opening Bella's door.
Bella smiled at me as she swung her legs out of the car and into the view of everyone in the parking lot.
Her gorgeous, shapely, long, leather clad legs.
I could feel myself becoming aroused just at the sight of those divine legs of hers. Not now! I scolded myself as I tried to think of something unappealing to get rid of my semi-hard on. After many failed attemtps in the space of a second, the image of Emmett in a bikini finally did the trick.
I wasn't the only one having trouble. Every single adolesent male's attention suddenly averted from my Vanquish, to Bella's legs.
Cullen is one lucky bastard. He probably has those legs around his waist every night. What I would do to have those legs wrapped around me as I...
Mike Newton's indecent thoughts shouted at me as Bella continued to extract herself out of the car with my help.
He is right on one thing though, I do get the honour of having Bella's magnificent legs around me everynight. As well as other things of hers.
His thoughts only got more inappropiate as more of Bella's body came into view. I growled as he imagined bending Bella over his couch after he laid eyes on how Bella's perfect perky behind looks like in her leather jeans when she turned around slightly to close the door.
Carlisle warned me that mates get more possesive and protective of each other after they have consumate their relationship and he was right because the only word that my brain could think of was MINE!
My growls turned slightly louder, alerting Bella to my anger. Bella followed my line of vision were I was staring daggers at Newton who had yet to remove his gaze from Bella's ass.
In the corner of my eye I saw Bella's eyes light up with mischeif and her lips turn up into a sexy smirk. That expression momentarily distracted me from Newton as I looked at her wondering what she was going to do next.
She slinked her arms around my neck and moved our heads closer together until we were nose to nose.
"Shall we show them who you and I belong to?" She whisperes in a sultry voice, her lips a breath away from mine.
A smirk identical to hers begins to form on my face as I caught on to what she is implying.
I closed the distance between our heads and engaged our mouths in a slow yet passionate kiss. My tongue snaked out of my mouth and swiped against her bottom lip, wordessly asking for entrance which she immediatly grants.
My mouth is immediatly intoxicated with Bella's floral escense as our tongues dance together intematly. I adjust my head a little more to the side and dive even deeper into her mouth as one of my hands interlace in her hair and the other is wrapped protectively around her waist.
Bella's hands do a wandering of my chest before they take residense in my hair were she tugs on it hard, just the way I like it causing a rathar loud moan to escape me. Her slowly building strength ensures this time that I feel it a bit harder than before as well.
The hand on her waist slides around to her ribs, brushing teasingingly against the underside of her breast. Bella in turn moans and moves one of her hands to explore the planes of my back.
"Get a room you two!" Alice's soprano voice calls to us as she and Jasper start to approach us.
Bella reluctantly pulls her lips from me but doesn't move her body away an inch which is good because I don't want to let her go and show to everyone that my raging hard on is once again present although I'm pretty sure Alice and Jasper already knew it. That's definitely something I don't want anyone except Bella to see.
Speaking of people, everyone in the school parking lot except for Jasper and Alice were gawking at us.
After taking a quick peek in their minds I could see that most of them were surprised at the PDA Bella and I just showed. People are used to her and I being quiet chaste in public.
That was fucking hot - Tyler
Lucky Bastard - Mike
They have soooo slept together. I need details! - Jessica
Fuck, I need a cold shower - Eric
"You'll have plenty of time for that later yout two" Jasper chimed in.
"You're lucky we stopped you now before you got carried away and shown everyone what we have to listen to everynight" Alice added with a wink at both of us.
I instantly felt the heat rise to Bella's cheeks as she buried her face in my chest. I wrapped my arms around her in comfort as I glared at Alice for drawing in even more attention to us.
Suddenly I had an idea,
"Its a good thing Bella and I are getting our own place then isn't it?" I said to the pair of them. Why not hault the rumours now before they get to excessive by making them think this was the reason for Bella's falling out with Charlie.
"Thank God" They muttered together melodramticly, even going as far as to wipe imaginary sweat from their foreheads in relief.
So this is why she moved out of he dad's house? Oooh this just gets better and better. She definetly has to spill now! I wonder how big he is, he certaintly looks like he's packing. I'll have to ask Bella that too. - Jessica
I can't imagine Charlie being to happy about them moving in together. Poor Bella, atleast Edward will make her happy. I've never seen them more in love. - Angela
The latter thought made me internally smile. At lesst Bella has one genuinly good friend who cares about Bella's welfare.
Man, as if he isn't already lucky enough. Now he gets to shack up with Bella. Lucky arrogant prick Mike thoughts sneered at me.
"All that lust was driving me mad, we better leave you two alone now before you start all over again, come on Alice, the bell is going to ring soon anyway" Jasper said, thankfuly more quiet then before so that no one apart from us heard, dragging Alice away.
Although Bella and I were embarrassed we both still chuckled under our breaths at Jasper's expence.
"See you later guys!" Alice called over her shoulder before she cantered of with Jasper.
"Come on," I took hold of Bella's waist "Let's go greet your friends. Jessica is practically bursting with questions" I said rolling my eyes playfully.
"Tell me something I don't know" she said as she too wrapped her arm around my waist.
The stares we were getting didn't decrease as Bella and I made our way over to Bella's friends.
Look at what she's wearing, looks designer. I always knew Bella would turn into a gold digger. Lauren's thoughts spat at Bella as we drawed nearer.
I refrained myself from growling loudly at her thoughts. God that girl is worse then Jessica.
"Bella!" Angela greeted my love enthuesiastically, stepping of Ben's arms to wrap hers around Bella. I let go of Bella so that she could hug Angela back properly and faced the others in the group.
"Good morning everyone." I greeted them as politly as I could despite the fact that I knew what they were thinking about at this very second.
"Morning!" the girls in the group replied in false sweet voice.
"Morning man" Ben replied pleasently while the other boys just nodded, their minds still full of jealousy. I refrained myself from smirking at their obvious envy of me. Barely.
That's right boys, Bella is MINE! My caveman side of me thought.
I suddenly felt Bella's warm arm wrap around my waist again and I looked down to see her smiling like an angel up at me.
"So," Jessica started "I could help overhearing that the two of you were moving in together? You guys are still in highschool, why not wait until college like most people?" She asked curiously, putting on the perect friendly face facade.
Bella's face flushed at the attention that was directed towards to us as everyone in the group turned too look at us curiously.
Bella looked at me expectanly, trying to communicate with her eyes that she didn't trust herself to sell the story convincingly. Its a good thing my family are used to fabricating stories for our facade.
I kissed her on the head affectionatly "We're in love," I started tenderly as I looked into my angel's eyes "I know we're young," I could see Bella holding back an eye roll at that, of course a hundred and eight wasn't old in the slightest but my appearence suggessted I was seventeen.
"I guess I'm selfish but I wan't Bella all to myself. I know that I will never love another apart from my Bella and I couldn't wait to start my life with her. The expectations of society doesn't make me want to see her beautiful eyes first thing in the morning any less. Nor does it decrease my wish for truly having somewhere private that's ours that we can call home."
The girls sighed dreamily and most in envy of Bella while the boys mentally gagged at my "pussy" words.
"Because that's what we want and my family couldn't be happier. Chief Swan on the hand... Well let's just say he wasn't very fond of the Idea" I finished.
Bella's friends looked absolutley enthralled in the story, obviously the girls more than the boys.
"Fond?" Bella scoffed, suddenly gaining back her confidence "He practically forbade me from you. He knows we're a package deal. I love my dad but with my eighteenth birthday only a little over a week away, he need to learn that I'm a responsible adult that can make good choices for myself." She finished her rant with the most adorable look on her flushed face that begged to be kissed.
"We've always been ahead of our age." I reassured her "Old souls remember, and your father is fully aware of your maturity especially with the way you took care of your mother emotionally growing up and physically with him. I think maybe that's part of the problem. You took all your time looking after your parents and not the other way round and now he knows that's my job" I told her.
All of this was true of course just in the context of her getting pregnant, not moving out. As we were leaving the house Charlie's thoughts cleared up for once and I saw that he thought that he was the one to blame. He thought that if maybe if he spent more time getting to know his daughter and looking after her for once then maybe things wouldn't have turned the way things have.
I knew by the look of her face that she complety understood what I was trying to convey. Another thing I loved about her, she knew me better than anyone.
Oh my god, that's so romantic! Angela gushed mentally.
Oh the things I'd do with Bella if we had a place to ourselves... Mike's never mental fantasies started once again. I tried to tune out his voice before I ripped his miserable head off.
It would have been better gossip if he knocked her up or something but I suppose this story will have to do. It will be a whole lot juicer once I found out how good The Edward Cullen is in bed. She cannot hold out on me there. She owes it every female in Forks! Jessica's thoughts blabbered annoyingly.
Urghh I hate you Bella Swan, that should be me Edward Cullen is going to be moving in with, that should be me that's wrapped up in his arms in and that should be me he talks about like that. She's not even pretty. Edward and I would totally look better together! Lauren the ever jealous thought.
"That's great guys!" Jessica exclaimed in faux excitement, though her thoughts also betrayed her jealousy of Bella.
The shrill sound of the school bell sounded causing loitering students that were trying to overhear our conversation to reluctantly disperse to their lessons though all their thoughts were reassured that Jessica Stanley would have all the dirty facts to feed them. To their credit, they are right.
Bella and I started to make our way towards class when the ever annoying Jessica Stanley called behind us,
"We'll catch up more, later in Trig!" So I can ask about what every female has been dying to know. Bella Swan I will not take no for an answer.
Bella grimaced slightly at Jessica's fairwell. She no doubt guessed that the questions weren't over yet.
"What is she going to ask? I need to be prepared" She asked me hopefully.
"Are you sure you want to know" I replied teasingly.
"Yes" she replied pouting whilst also pulling out the puppy dog eyes. And of course how could I refuse such a face,
"She's going to ask a little more about the moving in aspects and whether we have an ultierier motive," I winked at her at that and she giggled "but mostly she is going to ask you..." I trailed off delibretly.
"Yessss..." she dragged out slightly annoyed with the pout still present on her lovely face. God she was so cute when she was annoyed.
"She's going to ask you a series of questions about how well I perform." I told her
"Oh," she said relieved. I suddenly realised she misunderstood my statement "that I can deal with. I wonder how she found out you could play p-"
"In bed." I interuppted her.
"Oh" she said again, this time in embarrassment.
"What are you going to say?" I asked curiously with a smirk on my face.
"Edward!" She exclaimed loudly, smacking me on the chest half heartedly causing me to burst into laughter.
"Don't worry, you know I'll be listening anyway." I said lightly after calming down from my fit of laughter.
"I know." She sighed in resignation before a glint suddenly flashed in her eyes. Bella stretched on her toes until her mouth was level with my ear. I shuddered at the feeling of her breathing against my sensitive skin.
"I don't know why you're so curious," she whispered seductively "Especially if my screaming your name last night was anything to go by."
I felt the familiar tightening in my groin as images of the said night flashed across my mind.
"You evil, evil woman" I told her. Bella simply smiled innocencently in retern.
When we entered tutorial (A/N: Don't know what you guys call it in America or if you even have it. In England we also call it resigration) everyone's eyes were on us.
Bella and I took a desk right at the back of the class in the corner yet people still managed to stare.
It was like the first day my family came to school all over again. I imagine Bella must feel the same.
Today was going to be a long day.
I wish people would stop staring. Don't they have anything better to do do. Wait, of course they done. Nothing ever happens in forks.
There's no use wishing their parents taught them manners. Nearly all of them are worse than their children.
Throughout the whole of tutorial, I held back the urge to cradle my stomachs as if to protect it from the over eager stares we were getting. I could tell Edward was trying just as hard I was if not more. Since the my pregnancy came to light Edward had hardly removed his hands from my abdomen, much like me.
I felt a bit guilty that we were hiding my pregnancy, like it was something to be ashamed of. I understood though why we had to do it, until I started showing which would be in around two months according to Carlisle, this baby would stay just between me and my family.
After what felt like houres the bell finally rang and people tore their eyes away from Edward and I and started to pack what little they got out their bags during registration.
"As you are fully aware class, you are in your last year of high school," Mr. Ridgby said over the chatter of the class "It would do well for you to focus on your studies as you will all start to apply for College soon. Have a good first day back at school and I'm hoping I won't hear any complaints from you from other teachers today, or any other day for that matter. Class dissmissed.". As soon as the last two words left his mouth, the whole class grabbed their bags and left the class room as quickly as possible with their friends.
All expect Edward and I that is, there was no rush. Edward stood first, pulled my chair out for me before holding my bag in one hand and my waist in the other.
In the corner of my eye I could see Mr. Ridgby smile slightly at Edward's little loving actions that was completly unconcious on his part.
"Have a nice day sir." We both said warmly as we exsited the class.
"You too, Ms. Swan and Mr. Cullen." He called after us.
When trig rolled round, I mentally prepared myself for Jessica's firing questions before heading in with Edward.
Unfortunatly for us, our teacher Mr. Mason didn't like boys and girls sitting next to each other. In this case I would normally sit next to Angela but unlucky for me Angela isn't in this class this semester.
"I'll rescue you if it gets too much, okay?" Edward asked quietly in my ear.
I was pretty sure I could handle whatever Jessica through at me but the thought that Edward will be ready at the rescue was comforting none the less.
"Thank you" I whispered back.
"You're welcome. How are mommy and baby doing?" His voice went even softer when he asked this on the off chance that someone would hear I presume.
"We're fine as a fiddle. Please don't worry too much." Again I held back from rubbing or touching my stomach lovingly somehow. God this is harder than I thought.
"It's hard not to worry love, you both mean the world to me. Its part of my job description to worry irrationally. I don't think that feeling is ever going to go away." His eyes conveyed all the love he had for us as he told me this. I still sometimes can't rap my mind around how he always looks at me like I'm the prize as apposed to the very lucky winner.
"I love you Edward."
"I love you too."
Luckily for Edward, Ben was in this class and since Ben and Angela got together after prom and they found out Edward was the one who hatched a plan to push him into asking Angela, the two males have become pretty good friends.
Edward bid me a brief kiss on the cheek before I made my way over to Jessica who was bouncing excessivly in her seat.
"Tell me everything!" she exclaimed in a whisper, like we like two best friends gushing over a guy in a middle of a sleepover with pop corn and soda. Mmmm... Popcorn. Focus Bella! Don't worry baby, momma will feed you popcorn soon.
"What would you like to know?" I asked evacively.
"Well you and Edward brushed over the basics but I want DETAILS," she exadurated the last word as if it would make me more willing to spill all.
"When did you guys decide you wanted to shack up together? What did his family think? What did your family think? Were are you going to move? When are are you going to move?" I don't think she even breathed between those sentences when she was done.
"You should really breathe in-between sentences," I adviced her "and to answer your questions, one: I was on another sleepover at the Cullens. Edward and I were in his room... Busy" Ha! Let her suck on that, jealous yet Jessica? I really need to try and calm down my mood swings before I slip up and say something I shouldn't or give myself away.
"When we were done, Edward made a comment about how he wished he didn't have to let me go and that if only we could stay together all the time, and well that's when the seed was sort of planted into our heads." I continued while Jessica's eyes were brimming with curiousity and to my pleasure, Jealousy that she was trying damn hard to conceal. I may not be a mind reader but I'm perceptive nevertheless.
"Two: his family couldn't be happier for us. They understand our need for privacy which there is none of what so ever if we chose to live with them. Three: As you know, my dad threw a fit when he found out, telling me I was to young and Edward wasn't welcome there anymore for being a bad influence on me. Renee on the other hand was so excited when we told her. She'd seen us together though our Skype sessions and she said she couldn't imagine us apart." I smiled at the fond memory of my shocked face when my mother started squeeling instead of yelling when we told her about Edward and I's miracle.
"As for when and were we're going to move... Well Esme had a feeling we would want a place of our own in the future. She didn't know when but she brought us a house and started to renovate it for us. We'll move in just as soon she finishes it." I concluded, hopefully that was enough to satisfy her. Judging by her face it did.
I turned around in my chair to see that Edward was smiling proudly at me "I love you" he mouthed to me, god he was sweet. I mouthed it back and a dazzling smile lit up his face.
When I turned back to Jessica it was to see her gaze flickery between Edward and I with curiousity - and a little bit of envy - coloring her face.
I grew anxious at the expression on her face, especially when I remembered Edward telling me another line of questioning that Jessica was curious in.
"So you guys have slept together right?" She asked eagerly.
I almost laughed out loud at the expression on Bella's face when Jessica said that. I already know that Bella happens to love our sex life just as much as I do but I was still curious as to the answer she would give for public knowledge.
"Yes" My love answered after a couple of seconds of silence. Her voice only wavered a little because of nerves. I could tell she was trying to sound confident and not be intimidated by Jessica's question despite the fact that Bella loves our privacy. Fortunately for her, Stanley didn't notice the little shake in her voice.
Yes? YES? That's all she's going to give me? Hell no.
"Is he any good?" she asked impatiently bouncing in her seat.
"Yes." Bella answered curtly. That's my girl!
Gosh what is her problem? This is like that day I asked her about their date in Port Angeles all over again. If I slept Edward Cullen I would be dishing the details to everyone.
I rolled my eyes at that particular thought, course you would Jessica; you do after all have no class. Don't you do that already with every guy though?
"Come on Bellaaa!" She whined in a horrible nasal voice "Give me the dirt. This is big stuff! That is unless it isn't big at all if you know what I mean" she giggled at her own joke while giving Bella a wink.
I chuckled internally. Oh you really shouldn't have said that Jessica, especially to a pregnant woman carrying a half vampire child in her womb. If you thought a regular pregnant woman is scary, you're about to learn a very valuable lesson.
Emmett had learnt it the hard way last week when he made one comment too many about our over active sex life.
It seems as if Bella is one of those women who get exceedingly horny during pregnancy, something I was very grateful with.
Let's just say ever since then, whenever Emmett would start to say something that was too embaressing Bella would give him The Look that shut him up quicker than Roselie's slaps to the back of the head any day.
The same look she was now directing towards Jessica who was too busy thinking about our sex life to see The Look.
"Dammitt Jessica!" She whisper yelled with her hand clenched into fists. Jessica's eyes flashed in surprise at the tone Bella used with her, she had never heard Bella sound so angry.
"Our sex life is exactly that; OURS, meaning it Is none of you business. What should it matter to you how well Edward performs in the privacy of OUR bedroom. He will still be mine regardless." I was getting extremly turned on by feisty Bella. This was no kitten anger, Bella was pissed and I found it extemly sexy.
Jessica's thoughts started to curse Bella but her subconcious betrayed the fact that she was scared. In fact it was similar to the effect vampires had on humans.
Bella still wasn't finished with Ms. Stanley.
"You want details? I'll have you know that sex when done with the right person can be the most earth shattering, mind blowing experience ever and that was what it was. The fact that Edward and I were just as pure as each other, that we hadn't so much as second looked or kissed another person before each other made it all the more special. Its not something we took lightly like most teens these days. Its magical and its sacred and I can't believe you have the nerve to ask me about something so private as our love making!" Bella fumed turning towards the front of the class were our teacher had yet to arrive despite the fact that it was already half way through lesson. Jessica stared her at Bella mouth agape as she processed her words in her mind.
He's that good... Wait Edward Cullen has never kissed a girl before Bella? Wait until I tell everyone about that!
What an idiot.
"And by the way," Bella briefly turned to face Jess once again "He is more than packing in that departement." She smiled innocently enough before turning back to front.
It was my turn to have my mouth wide open. Jessica's mind exploded with envy that I was Bella's and not hers not to mention shock and anger.
I decided it was time time to have my fun as I got up and went two tables in front were they were both sat. When I reached just behind Bella's back I leaned down to Bella's ears and whispered seductivley just loud enough for Jessica to hear us but quiet enough to not make it look delibrate.
"You're so sexy when you get angry. When we get home I want you on our bed naked."
Bella whimpered slightly and gave me a smoldering look while Jessica gasped at my choice of words.
Oh my God that was so hot! I think I'm going to faint. Lucky bitch.
Bellward two, Jessica zero.
