Chapter Spoiler/Sneak Peek:
CHAPTER 13 - TRUTH & BAGGAGE
My chin quivered as the words continued to gush out. "I tried to not let it get this far, Dad. Believe me, I tried to stay away from him. I even went with you in the mountains, remember? A few months back? But it happened and I cannot change it now." I inhaled deep, but continued on. "He's the best part of me, I think. He has had similar pasts, we've both lost our mothers... We've both had heartbreak. Dad, Edward protects me and he loves me, he just wants what is be-"
Charlie cut me off. "He protects you? Protects? Bella, tell me how in the hell he protects you?"
I swallowed hard. "He just does."
"Oh, I see." Charlie threw his hands in the air, his frustration growing. "So you're telling me that young, fragile, human boy in there could stop me from hurting him if I was trying to get to you?"
He shook his head and swung his door open. "Well, let's go find out."
CHAPTER 14 - THE REAL BELLA
Hanging out with Rosalie and Alice really does distract a person from all their concerns.
I spent most of the weekend hanging out with them more than Edward, as he had practice the next night and a game after. We decided that his game would be where I would make my new appearance.
So, with a lot of patience and occasional tantrum from me, they taught me how to curl and fix my hair in different ways, how to do my makeup with smokey eyeliner, and how to dress more sexy to "fit my curves". I even allowed them to take me shopping, so Alice could pick out a few sexier clothes for me, and Rosalie could debate them. Which she did.
Alice even took the time to talk with my Dad, to prove to him that Edward did have sisters and I was staying over the next two nights with girls, not guys. Charlie took an immediate liking to her, and that made me smile, thinking about all the times I could use her as an excuse in the future.
After that, the following morning was "school lessons", where Rosalie taught me how to walk in heels for a few painful hours, how to bat my eyelashes, how to "smile with a secret", and other techniques that could "break any man's composed face who tried to resist you".
Even though I hated it at first, reality came and settled in that I was indeed a girl, in love, willing to express myself for the first time with the one man I wanted to be with.
CHAPTER 15 - INTERTWINED
I giggled, my hands wrapping around his neck. "You seem so surprised."
"Well, don't be. I'm not lying."
I refused Edward the ability to speak before crushing my lips to his. I threw my arms around his neck, burying my fingers in his hair as I pushed his face against mine. I grinded my hips against his, parting his lips with mine. His breathing hitched as I kept my plan in motion, pushing him backward onto the bed. His warm hands glided up my sides to my arms, and then before I knew it, he was laying over me and I was on the pillows.
"Wait, Bella." he gasped.
I shook my head. "No."
Edward frowned and pulled himself higher, still panting. "Bella, how are you so sure?"
I touched his warm chest, feeling the thum-thum-thum-thum of his heart beating senseless against my palm. "I've never been more certain in my life."
