Jealous or Over Protective Chapter 2
I woke up and after rubbing my eyes looked over to see Edward kneeling next to my head by the bed. He looked gorgeous as ever. It almost made me want to forgive him for yesterday…almost. After all this isn't the first time he's done crap like that. For example at school during lunch once he glared and growled at mike so much he almost scared the poor guy to tears! Then had the nerve to look mad when I talked to him about it.
"Good morning" I moaned while I stretched. I went into the bathroom and brushed my teeth. After I washed my face and ran a comb through my hair I walked back out and gave Edward a hug.
"Good morning to you too sweetheart. Anything in particular you want for breakfast?" He asked me.
"Nope I'm good with anything." My stomach rumbled the moment I said that and I chuckled. Edward grabbed my hand and we both walked out of the room and down the stairs. But when we went downstairs and into the kitchen we saw Thorne in the kitchen cooking! When I was in Arizona Thorne was the one who taught me how to cook and even though my food is good it's in no way better than his.
"Thorne what are you making?" I asked him trying to peek over his shoulder at what it was. It smelled like a combination of apples and vanilla. I almost saw it but he quickly put it in the oven.
"I'm not telling you so you have to guess. Plus it's not even ready yet." He said playfully with that goofy grin of his.
"Is it my favorite French toast with roast apples?" I said trying to "discreetly" open the oven to look inside. Of course it didn't work as Thorne caught my little hand in his big one.
"It might be you just have to wait." He said flicking my nose like he used to a lot when we were little.
"You don't need to do that you know." Edward snapped and glared at Thorne. What is his problem?! We just talked about this so many times I can't count it all on my hands and toes and then it's like everything I said went in one ear and out the other!
"Well last night I thought about making a reuniting/new friendship kind of breakfast. So I came to the kitchen prepared some stuff and this morning got to work. Don't worry I already asked your mom and she said it was ok last night." Thorne explained quickly. Not long after he said that the timer on the stove rang. Thorne turned around and quickly pulled out the toast. He put the caramel and confectioners' sugar on it and slid it and the apples on to a plate.
"Here, you go. I hope you still like it as much as you used too." He grinned while he handed me the plate. I went and sat down at the table. I took one bite and almost fell off the chair! Its better then I remembered it was! I love this toast so much!
"And Edward I don't really know what your favorite thing to eat for breakfast is. I guess I should have asked you early this morning but I didn't wanna wake you. So I just made you some veggie scramble. Its turkey sausage, mushrooms, sliced peppers, onions and Cheddar cheese." He said giving Edward a smile.
"It's okay. Thank you but I have to get going I have some errands to run." Edward said. He put his arms around my waist and aimed for my lips but I moved my head so he kissed my cheek. Then he whispered quietly so that only I could hear him.
"I have to go hunting"
"Okay, bye. Be quick" I waved him goodbye. He smiled at me and nodded at Thorne.
As soon as Edward left I knew that this was my chance to talk to Bella without him hovering around her like a guard dog. I sat in front of her while she chewed her breakfast and smiled at her. She smiled back at me and then I decided to start asking.
"So Bella please tell me what's going on?" I asked her letting emotion seep into my voice. I know something is defiantly not right. This Edward dude he just gives out this really scary manipulative and jealous vibe. Plus he's ALWAYS around Bella like he doesn't trust her to do anything for herself, she clumsy at times yea but still. Not to mention I can tell he's changed her. She winced at my question and answered with,
"What do you mean? Nothing's wrong." She said trying and failing to lie. At least this never changed about Bella. She was a terrible liar.
"Bella I know something's wrong. I've known you since you and I were little and I know that something's wrong. It's that Edward guy, he's changed you and defiantly not for the better no matter what you or anyone says. Your hair isn't highlighted different colors like it is sometimes. And your clothes are so no offence but boring and too soft. When you were in Arizona you loved hard rock style and loud rock music. Now all of a sudden I can tell that's thrown out of the window. " I said while sliding my hand across the table. She looked like she wanted to pull back but instead gripped my hand.
"Well…Edward doesn't really like rock music. He thinks it's disgusting really so I stopped listening to it. And my clothes are different because his sister Alice deemed them…unacceptable. She threw almost all of them out and bought all these other clothes for me. It was… is hard but you have to compromise things for the person you…love, Right?" She said slowly and almost as if saying it out loud finally hit her in the head that familiar fire in her eyes that had been pushed down returned to her eyes.
"So your telling me that you have done all this for him. You have dropped everything you love and care about for him. But Bella what does he do for you? What has he sacrificed to make you happy? Bella to tell you the truth I don't think you're in love I think you're infatuated, curious as all hell because this is your first love, and then, ultimately you have been controlled." At my words realization came to her eyes and she looked like she couldn't breathe.
"Oh my god, Oh my god I think- I think I made a huge mistake!" Bella said tears coming to her eyes. I got up and gave her a hug. I pulled back and wiped the tears away with my thumbs.
"It'll be okay. Everything's going to be ok I promise so don't cry. How about I go upstairs and get a cold wash cloth then I'll make you some nice tea." I said kissing her forehead and walking upstairs.
I watched Thorne leave and the tears streamed down. I can't believe how blind and stupid I was when all the signs were all in front of me and I didn't realize it! All it took was Thorne to lay it out for me. Edward didn't love me he loved what he wanted me to wanted a girl that he can mold into exactly who he wants. It's no wonder every time I turned around he was making decisions for me without even asking my opinion and treating me like a…inferior. Then he has the nerve to call me love. Thinking back on it and remembering the minute he calls me 'Love' and tries to make me feel like a child throwing a tantrum is when I know that this wouldn't work. When he calls me 'Love' it's not endearing because he does not mean it as a term of endearment, it's patronizing in the worst way! He uses it mostly when he feels I'm not towing the line and going along with what he wants!
I was broken out of my thoughts when I heard someone clear their throat. I looked up and instantly felt terrified. Almost all of the Cullen's except for Rosaline and jasper were standing there with grave expressions but Alice had to be the worst. Her eyes were filled with anger and disbelief. Then as if the damn broke she started to speak.
"How could you do this to Edward?" She hissed. "He has been nothing but kind and fair to you! You are so not worth the heartache my family has gone through to make sure you're happy and safe. You're such a human! You're being selfish, Bella. How ungrateful can you get?"
"I'm being selfish? I'm being selfish? That's funny coming from you of all people sister. I am tired of you playing dress up with me like I'm a freaking My Size Barbie doll! I have told you time and time again no but what does Alice do? Whatever she wants without thinking about anyone's opinion, you annoying gnat! Then Emmett you do everything you can to make me blush. Rosalie and her shitty ass attitude towards me even though I've done nothing to her but do what I want! I'm even tired Carlisle of you and Esme's "loving parent act", I have parents, and their names are Charlie Swan and Renee Dwyer! I know they love me but sometimes I don't want to be coddled and really I'm tired of you taking Edwards side in every disagreement we have! "
"Then Edward oh Edward I'm sorry but I can't do this. I don't think we should see each other anymore. I really do hope that you find a girl that you can mold into exactly who you want but it's really becoming clear to me that I am not that girl. I am tired of being treated like a child who cannot make her own decisions, I'm tired of you patronizing me and calling me 'love' when I really don't believe that you love me. I think you love the idea of who you want me to be and I'm sorry to tell you that I am not that girl. I'm moving back home so please don't come by there at night anymore, I really want this to be as clean a break as possible, I apologize for the trouble your family went THAT YOU YOURSELFS CAUSED!" I said and as I got my breathing together all of a sudden all that weight I didn't know I was on me had been lifted off me. No more would I have to deal with them! It made me want to jump, and laugh till I cried. In the mean time they all were looking at me with open mouths. The silence lasted for awhile until Alice spoke AGAIN.
"You know what, that's fine! I don't know what going on with you but it's all that Thorne kids fault. We only told you what to do because we care about you. You've thrown away a good man and I feel sorry for you, one day you'll see."
"Oh Alice shut up and get a life so you can stop trying to live everyone else's! Thorne we're leaving!" I said taking off my engagement and putting it on the table. Thorne came down the stairs with his suitcases that I failed to notice last night and we left that house never looking back.
