As I sat in the restaurant with Edward I couldn't help but get more and more pissed off as time passed. This was supposed to be our special night and some big headed bimbo waitress was messing it up! And I'm not kidding about the big head thing her head is the size of a swollen basketball! You'd think she would have stopped after she tripped over a table leg because she was too busy fluttering her eyes at Edward!
"Bella are you okay?" Edward asked breaking me out of my daydream. I was about to answer but before I could even let the words out here she comes again.
"Hello I'm Cadie would you like to order now?" she asked in a sweet sickly and slightly nasal tone only looking at Edward. I looked at Edward and started making gagging faces behind her back. Edward snickered before bursting into full out laughter. Cadie looked around just as I straightened my face.
"Joke over!" I said making Cadie scowl. "And I will have the House lasagna"
"And what can I get you?" She said smiling and winking at Edward. Edward frowned and looked like he wanted to throw this girl off a Clift. I really wouldn't mind him doing that at the moment.
"I'll have the same as Bella." Edward said giving me a smile. Cadie grudgingly wrote it down and switched (more like her hip was broken) back to the kitchen leaving Edward and I alone. As soon as she left Edward sighed and smiled apologetically at me. I smiled and took his hands in mine. I pressed one against my cheek and entwined the fingers of my free hand with his.
All of a sudden a loud bang shook the Restaurant. Edward's hand dropped from my face as he turned around and smirked. It was Cadie who had dropped the plates after seeing my face cupped in Edward's hand. I held my breath trying to hold back a laugh. I gently tapped Edward on the shoulder and whispered in his ear.
"Seeing as our dinners on the floor let's leave. I don't know if I will be able to stop myself from laughing if she comes over." Edward smiled and lightly nodded.
He went over to her and kneeled down to where she was on the floor picking things up. "Forget the dinner; I'm afraid we are leaving." Cadie's face fell with sadness.
We walked out of the restaurant and were heading to the car when all of a sudden I heard someone running after us and yelling.
"Miss? Miss? Wait you forgot your jacket!" I turned around to see a guy running towards me with my white jacket in his hand. He looks so familiar and then it hit me. He's really tall and pale with hooded blue eyes that are like two sapphires. His straight, black hair is neck-length and he has an elegant build.
"Thorne! Is that you?!" I said jumping on him in a huge hug! Thorne was my best friend ever since kindergarten. We were practically joined at the hip until I moved to forks and unfortunately lost his number.
"Bella! You haven't changed at all! How are you sweet heart? Why didn't you keep in touch with me? Do you know how much I missed you?" He said kissing my cheek and putting me down.
"I'm sorry I lost your number when I switched phones and I couldn't find your email." I said with a smile. Then I realized that the Edward has no idea who this is or what's going on so I turned around and made eye contact with him and pulled Thorne gently towards him.
"Thorne this is Edward my fiancé, Edward this is my best friend Thorne. We've been friends since kindergarten."
"You have a fiancé! Oh my god I'm so glad I get to see you now and that I haven't missed the wedding." He said with a relived look on his face. He shook hands with Edward and I saw him wince as Edward squeezed his hand a bit too tight but stopped when I shot him a look.
"So how long are you staying here for?" Edward snapped. I can tell Edward and Thorne aren't going to be BFF's.
"Three weeks" Thorne replied.
"Well where are you staying?" Edward asked impatiently. I better talk to Edward about manners when we get home.
"I don't really know… I'm just here on vacation and ran out of money..." He trailed of not knowing what to say.
"Well you could always stay at Edwards's house since I'm moving in now." I offered kindly. It would give us a chance to catch up! And besides there was no way I'm letting my best friend spend money on a hotel when there's a perfectly good free room at the house.
"No!" Edward growled loudly enough for practically half of the parking lot to look at him like his some sort of psycho.
"If you don't want me to then it's… its ok" Thorne said sadly. What the hell is wrong with Edward?!
"Oh Thorne please don't be sad please. You can stay with us as long as you want." I walked over to him and rubbed his back.
"What? No!" Edward exclaimed
"Edward!" I said glaring at him as hard as I could and he just looked at me pleadingly. I shook my head and refused to look at him.
"So I'll give you the address and we'll meet you at the house. You still have your GPS in your car right?" I said pulling a sharpie out of my purse and writing the address on his arm.
"Yeah I do. I'll see you soon." He said and I waved as he got in his car and drove away.
The drive home was silent and awkward. I'm not speaking to Edward until we get to our room so I can give him a piece of my mind. I'm not going to look at him in case he tries to "dazzle" me to get what he wants. We'll have to talk about that too because it's just getting ridiculous and annoying. After we reached home I noticed Thorne was already in the drive way waiting for us. We got out of the car and lead Thorne inside of the house.
Esme upon hear us come in came out of the kitchen to greet us.
"Hell-Oh... Who's this? She asked Edward and me.
"This is Thorne, Bella's friend. He's going to be here for 3 weeks" Edward replied icily.
"Oh well it's lovely to meet you Thorne. I'm Edward's mother, Esme" She introduced herself and he shook her hand.
"Well it's lovely to meet you too, I hope you don't mind be being here" he smiled at her.
"I don't mind at all. I want you to let me know if you need anything."
"Thank you" Thorne said. Esme smiled and left to finish off some work she had.
"So where am I going to be sleeping?" Thorne looked at me then Edward.
"Bella, why don't you go upstairs to our room and get relaxed. I'll show Thorne where his room is." Edward had never referred his room as 'our room'. But I like it. It'll be our soon anyway once I get my stuff here... I'm a slow packer.
"Sure. Good night Bella." He smiled at me and I smiled back.
"Good night Thorne" I said sweetly and I swear I heard Edward growl.
We really need to go over manners.
God I hate Thorne! All he ever thinks about is Bella! 'I'd forgotten how pretty Bella is since she's been gone.' 'Why is Bella with this weird looking guy?' Isn't it obvious? We're in love dumbass!
"So how long have you known Bella for?" He asked trying to make small talk.
"Two years" I replied casually.
"Do you think that enough time? Most people don't get married until after 3 or 4 years. What if it turns out that you fall out of love with her and you have to get divorced?"
I glared at him and said "I'll love her till the end of time and I'll be there for her as long as she wants me too."
"Have you guys ever had a serious fight?" Gosh what is his problem?
"No." I said sternly
"Have you ever lied to her?" What is this, twenty-one questions?
"Yes" I said quietly
"What did you l-?"
"Here's your room" I cut him off. I opened the door and showed him one of the guest rooms we had.
"Whoa… this is so cool" he whispered. The room is big enough for about three people with a king size bed. There was plasma on the wall right in front of the bed. Then there's a white couch next to the big bookshelf on the left. And there on the right was a study table with notepads, pens, lamp and a computer. The door to the bathroom was next to the study table.
"I guess I'll see you in the morning then. Good night."
"Good night" he said quickly.
When I went back to the room I opened the door to see a very annoyed looking Bella. I'm going to have to do some explaining which means it's going to be a long night.
"What the fuck was that downstairs?!" I asked angrily. Edward then had the nerve to look confused and sad.
"What do you mean love?" I asked her curiously
"Edward you just now met Thorne for the first time today and your acting like he's done you so much harm. He's my best friend and I am NOT going to sit back and let you speak to him rudely, glare at him or anything like that. Especially since he has done absolutely nothing to you! I'm not asking you to be best friends with him but you can at LEAST be civil. Can you see how selfish your being by not letting me enjoy time with my friend?! And this is the last time I'll be able to see him before I'm a crazy blood drinking vampire! So I am not asking you I am telling you. Be. Nice."
"I'm sorry Bella. I had no idea how cruel I was being I'm so sorry. I'll make it up to you I promise." Edward said hugging me but I didn't really hug back. He pulled back and tried to kiss me but I moved my head.
"I will kiss you when you're nice tomorrow. And you can stay on the couch." I said going to bed and snuggling in the soft covers while feeling Edwards glare on my back.
