"This is really good", I compliment her cooking.
"You like it?" she sounds pleased.
"A lot." I take another bite and then a sip of soda. Then I realise that Bella is watching me strangely. Whats going on in her mind? I'd love to know.
"Can I ask you something?" she says hesitantly.
"Sure", I say while taking a long sip of Coke. As if I'll say no.
"Did Paul ever mention me?"
She wants to talk about her dead boyfriend. What a perfect conversation topic.
"I'm sorry but he never spoke about you. Whenever his personal life came up, he never said that he had a girlfriend."
She looks heart broken. "I see."
"He was lucky to have you", I say.
"I know, Isabella. You're a special woman."
She blushes and avoids looking at me.
"You're everything a man would ever want", I resume.
Our eyes meet. "You don't know what you're talking about. I'm nothing but ordinary."
"I don't know what it is... You... you're the kind that's hard to forget about."
"I'm having problems moving on!" she blurts out suddenly.
"Its natural to feel that way after losing someone whom you loved. But it'll happen sooner or later."
"Not for me", she says. "Look at yourself Edward. Whenever I see you, I see someone who's hurting, someone who's in pain but doesn't want any help. You're keeping quiet and suffering. Why are you doing this?"
"I'm doing fine", I lie.
"Then why haven't you cleaned up your sister's room? Why are you avoiding it?"
More coming up soon. I finished writing this whole story today so you can expect quicker updates. Sorry for the delay. I was busy volunteering at a hospital.
What do you think of this?
