Edward’s POV:I’m such an idiot. I just ran away from my girlfriend because she started to puther hand down my pants. Was that what she was doing? I’m not even sure. I’m alittle lightheaded at the moment.So now I’m standing here in my kitchen, that we never use by the way. Well, asidefrom some stuff for Bella in the fridge, and Esme’s baking disasters. I can’tbelieve Bella had to taste that stuff.She is probably still in my room, asking herself why she bothers with me. She hasno idea how close I was to taking her right there on my hundred-year-old dresser.But I just can’t. Especially after what happened to her wrist. Now it’s even moreclear how breakable she is. Not to mention if she’s emotionally ready for that. Oreven if I am. And I’ve had a century to wait.I feel completely human at the moment, and it’s a strange feeling. Not a bad onethough. I wonder if she’ll come down or just stay in there and wait for me. NowI’m a little embarrassed. We were just playing around…right? And I started it,after all.I turned to walk toward the stairs at human pace, thinking of what I should say. Ilooked up and saw that she was already at the top of them.“I think I’m gonna go home. I haven’t made Charlie dinner in a few days,” shesaid, carefully casual, as she descended.Great. Now I hurt her feelings.“I-- I don’t want you to go. I’m sorry about that.”“I know. But I really should go spend some time with him before I move out,anyway. I’ll see you later?”I didn’t know if that was rhetorical or not, but my only reaction was to grab herarm when she was passing me. Her heart stuttered.“I just don’t want to hurt you, Bella. You understand that, right?” I could feelmy eyes burn into hers.She nodded, wide-eyed. I sighed and let her go.She spent less time at my house the next few days and more with Charlie. I couldhardly complain; I wanted her to spend time with him before it was too late. But Idid not mean to make her feel unwanted.___________________Bella’s POVThings have been pretty awkward with Edward the last few days. He still spends thenight with me, but he seems uncomfortable when I try to snuggle up against him orkiss him. But I don’t mind the distance as much as I usually would, because smallbruises have formed on my hips and I do not want him to find out. That reallywould not help my case any.I realized a need for outside help, so I scrolled through my phone, searching forsomeone I could trust.
“Hey Alice. Are you alone?”“Yeah I’m shopping by myself. What’s up?”“I have a problem.”“Are you okay?” She sounded worried.“Yeah, it’s just…Edward won’t sleep with me.”I heard loud, musical laughter at the other end.“It’s not funny!”“Sorry. It’s just that he’s my brother. And it’s a little funny. Don’t you haveany non-relatives to ask?”“You guys are not even related. And if I told a human girlfriend that my boyfrienddoes not want to have sex, the next question will be ‘what’s wrong with him?’”Besides, I’ve let my human friends kind of drift away. Since I won’t be able tosee them after…”I suddenly had a lump in my throat.“Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you sad. I’ll think about it, Bella. But Edwardmight be right this time. It’s just safer to wait until after you’re moredurable.”“Ugh, will you guys stop using that word! I feel like a lawn mower or something.”“Fine. Well like I said, I’ll think it over.”“Okay, thanks. Love you.”“Love you too.”I was surprised that Alice did not see my request coming. But I guess it was alittle impulsive. Luckily, Alice called the next day telling me that after somedeep thought, she was going to help me out. Of course, her first plan of actioninvolved clothes.“Alice! That is way too short,” I whined as she handed me a number from hercloset.“Or just short enough!” she sang with a knowing grin.I looked at her with hesitance.“Should we ask Jasper for his opinion?” she pondered.“No! God no. This is awkward enough.”“Suit yourself.”When I made no move to put the dress on, she stood behind me and started pullingmy clothes off herself.“I can dress myself, you know,” I grumbled as she pulled my shirt over my head.I expected a witty or sharp reply but there was none. I looked behind me and shewas staring at my hip.“What?”Oh. Crap.“What happened?”“Nothing. I’m fine.” I shrugged. “Fragile human, remember?”I wanted to ask her not to think about it, but figured it would have the oppositeeffect. I grabbed the navy dress and put it on myself.“Now what shoes will you torture me with today?” I asked sarcastically to distracther.She smiled but it did not reach her sparkling eyes.“These,” she gushed, pointing to the floor.I groaned loudly, and it was completely natural.I think Edward liked my dress. He didn’t actually say it, but it seemed like hecould not form words at all. I figured that was a good sign. At first I thought Iwas dressed up with no place to go, but Edward changed into a nice outfit when he
got home. (Alice had kicked him out of the house so he couldn’t see me before the“finished product” with makeup and everything.) Alice gave us tickets to see asymphony. I wondered how she got them so last minute, but she said that she sawthat we would need them a while ago.______________________Edward’s POV:Bella looked absolutely gorgeous tonight. She always does, but with a bit ofAlice’s magic, she looked like a goddess.The symphony was over by now and we were walking back to my car. I could not helpbut wrap my arm around her waist and hold her close. She was so perfect. I pausednext to her door and leaned down to kiss her. I rested one hand on her cheek andbrushed some loose hairs back. Our lips met and I put my other hand on her hip.She flinched.That was not normal. I pulled away from her and looked at her cautiously.“What?”“You flinched.”“No I didn’t.”Her lying was still as terrible as ever. It would have been humorous if I was notconcerned. But I let it go after a few seconds of staring at her and opened herdoor.I guess I had not really touched her like that since my room incident four daysago.Had I really made her feel that bad about herself? Enough so that she wassurprised when I wanted to touch her? Maybe she is just jumpy like I’ve been thepast few days when I’ve been trying to restrain myself. I could barely handlecuddling with her. I just hope that this awkwardness will end soon. Damn hormones._____________________Bella’s POV:So I had messed up royally last night. I don’t know what I was thinking, puttingon a dress like that and expecting him not to touch my hips. Instead of gettingone step closer to seducing him, we took one step back because now he is even morecautious. I told Alice I needed a break from the plan. It was exhausting. Besides,today I had something to distract me. I was going to meet Jacob’s imprint, Aubrey.After hearing Jacob gush about her all week, I was sure that she would bewonderful.I walked into the diner and saw Jake sitting at a booth with a blond girl thatmust be her. I don’t know what I was expecting, but this was not it. She had anaura that reminded me of Lauren. I sighed. This was going to be a long dinner.She did not wait long to start the questioning.“So, Jakey here has told me a few things about you.” Jakey? Seriously?“How did you guys meet?” she asked me after I did not say anything.“Family friend,” I answered nonchalantly. “Known each other since we were born.”She frowned a little. I was tempted to make up stories of us taking bathstogether.
