Summary: Isabella Marie Swan was a small village girl from London, England. She was a very polite, respectful, young girl, but stubborn. However, if she had to be, she could be violent and nasty, only if it suited her. One thing she prized was her books and loved to read. Though, now she finds out something that changes her life forever...for the best or worst. Can she be able to hold onto what's most important to her or will she be forced to give it away?


He raised his eyebrows. "Really? Is that a challenge, Isabella?"

I smiled sweetly. "It sure is, Eddie."

He barked a laugh and grinned at me, slightly dazzling me. "Oh, game on Swan!"

I shook my head out of the daze I was and smirked back. "Game on…"

Twilight-One Peasant, One King, One Queen

Chapter 4, Shocked

By: Celene Hudor Midnight

Yes, it sure was game on. It had been two weeks since I moved into the castle, and so far...I was absolutely and totally loving it. I had a room all to myself, room service, and free roam around the castle and its court yard. I was soaking it up. Unfortunately, there was one problem: Eddie. Ugh! He was infuriating and plain annoying. Any chance he had, he pursued me, and all I could say was, I was sick and tired of it. I was ready to a blow a casket. I had once almost started cursing him off because he was getting on my last nerve; however, I strained my jaw to keep shut. He was just-shit! Spoken of the devil, he came.

"Morning beautiful," he whispered in my ear before taking a seat next to his wife around the oval dining table.

I rolled my eyes and kept eating my breakfast, ignoring the intense gaze he was giving me to try and break me.

"Honey, I'm going to talk to your mother," Queen Tanya stated while standing up. "I'll see you later?"

He smiled at her and leaned up to kiss her on the lips. "That's fine babe, I'll just hang out with Isabella. I'm sure she won't mind, right?"

I choked on my water and started spluttering as he smirked. Finally, I stopped coughing and stared incredulously at him. A whole day with him? You got to be kidding me!

"Yeah, that would be wonderful!" I chipped, faking enthusiasm with sarcasm lacing it.

He grinned back. "See babe?" he said, turning his attention to Tanya who was glaring at me. "Now shoo, go have fun with my mother."

Eddie gave her another kiss and started eating again while Tanya walked out, but not before throwing me another dagger with so much hate. Instead of glaring back, I threw a flashing grin back at her, knowing it would piss her off. When I saw her narrow her eyes at me, I chuckled and grabbed my fork again, starting to eat again.

We ate in endless silence and once we were finished, I quickly got up and practically flew out of the dining room, wanting to get as far away as possible from Eddie. However, with the bad luck I've had since finding out I was already courted, he would follow me, and of course, my guess wasn't wrong. As soon as I got to my room and went to close my door, not thinking that he followed me, he appeared in the door way, giving me a heart-attach and stopping my door from closing with his hand. My eyes widened and I quickly jumped back from the closeness of his body.

Though, that was a big mistake I made. When I jumped back, it allowed him to step forward into my chamber and close the door, locking it so I could escape unless I wanted to jump of the balcony which I wasn't desperate enough to do...yet. Gulping, I backed up even more as he stalked toward me. Of course the one day I was alone with Edward is the day Tanya was with Edward's mother Elizabeth and his father, former King, Senor Edward was out with Edward's brother-in-law, Jasper. For Lord McCarty and his wife, Jasper's sister, Rosalie, they were shopping with Edward's sister, Mary Alice.

Why does fate hate me?

Biting my lip, I backed up until my legs hit the wooden _ before the bed. My breathing became irregular as he came closer, trapping me between the _ and him, his sweet breathe fanning over my face, making me slightly dazed and dizzy. Sucking in a breathe I stared at him, waiting until he made his move, hopefully one that I could afford. Ever so slowly, his face came closer to mine and he unconsciously licked his full lips, making me yearn his touch in a way that made me disgusted with myself. However, that didn't stop my body from tilting itself forward, toward him, making a shit-eating grin spread across his face.

Now that, thankfully, broke me through my haze of lust and made me ruffly push him away from me, making a horrified expression cross over my features. I couldn't believe I almost let this bastard kiss me. Gagging, I shook my head in disgust and quickly move away from his now off-balanced body. Huffing, I moved so I was now sitting on my bed, waiting for him to recover from my harsh push knowing clearly that he didn't expect it.

After a few seconds, he regained his balanced and smirked over at me, moving closer to me once again. Rolling my eyes, I scooted farther back on the bed; however, that didn't stop his advances. I quickly pulled my legs up on the bed so he couldn't grab them. Though, I knew it wouldn't help me in anyway. I made another mistake by not leaving when I had the chance. Slowly, he strutted over to the side of the bed I was on, placing his strong hands on the mattress, beckoning me to move closer to him.

I scoffed, "Not a chance I'm going near you!"

He chuckled and climbed onto the bed, making my eyes widen, my breathing picking up again, and my body to freeze, not allowing me to escape. As I started to hyperventilate, he moved closer until he made me lay on my back with him above me, between my legs. I know, I'm retarded. I knew I should of did something, but my mind and body wouldn't let me. They were not in agreement at the moment. Right then, I had no control over what my actions were.

I thought in the pass couple weeks, I was proud that I didn't right away give into his needs, but this totally ruined the process I was making. Gulping once again, I stared up into his piercing, emerald eyes, not able to look away as he bent his head to place a soft kiss on the hollow of my throat. Me, being the wuss I am, moaned in delight as he continued his assault on me, trailing kisses up and down my neck, making me moan even more and him to grin against my skin.

I couldn't help it, I wasn't in control of my actions anymore and apparently, my body liked what he was doing. I was totally and absolutely sick to my stomach for letting him have his way with me, but I simply couldn't stop him even if I wanted to. My desire that was building up in the past days from watching him took over and my lust-filled body took over as I laid there and let him make me his.

However, when he started to strip me of my clothing, my conscious part of my brain booted back to life and I angrily pushed him off of me, completely flabbergasted at myself for letting him go this far. Before he could recover from my sudden outburst, I ran into my bathroom and locked myself in before leaning against the door, trying to catch my breathe. Ashamed of myself, I dropped my head into my hands and groaned.

How could I possibly let that happen! I scolded myself, shaking my head back and forth.

Bagging suddenly filled the silence and stopped my little tisking of myself.

"Isabella, open up this instant!" Edward's velvet voice came through the door from the bed chamber.

Picking my head up, I yelled back a pathetic, "NO!"

Of course though, that didn't stop him. The bagging kept going, shaking the mirror on the wall.

"What did you say? You listen to me right now! Open up this god-damn door before I break it down!" he replied back.

Shaking my head, I screamed, "I don't have to listen to you, you jackass! Leave me the hell alone!"

"No! You can't stay in there forever Isabella!"

Groaning, I bagged my head against the door in frustration, but didn't make a move to open the door.

Growling in anger, he bagged once more before silence took over again.

Before long, I fell asleep, quietly wishing that Edward wanted me, not because I can produce a heir for him and his wife, but because he cared for me and loved me in a way I always longed for.

I jolted awake, hearing the chime of the clock. Startled, I sit up straighter against the door, gathering my surroundings. I was still in the bathroom and the light that came through the window was a faint glow from the moonlight.

Sighing, I closed my eyes, ready to fall back to sleep, knowing I'd be in here for awhile. However, when I heard light voices coming from the other side, my curiosity got the better of me. Gently putting my ear to the door, I strained my hearing to hear what the people were saying. What I heard though, shocked me like nothing else.

Hey, thanks for reading my story and so far I've been getting great reviews! Keep it up. Thanks again!
