30. The Fires Of Hell

I woke up early as I got a good sleep last night. I walked over to my wardrobe and changed from my pyjamas that someone must have put on me, into my clothes. When I was ready, it was time to wake Jake up.

"Jake, time to get up," I said shaking him gently.

He opened his eyes and smiled. I leaned in and kissed him on the lips before pulling away.

"Come on, up you get," I said turning around.

"Just one more minute," he said pulling my arm so I would fall on top of him. He put my head in his hands and pressed me closer to him, his lips were moving with mine. If I could I would stay like this all day but I had to break the kiss.

"Let's go," I said pulling him out of bed.

He got changed quickly, when we were ready we went downstairs.

"Nessie?" Grandpa said.

"Yeah?" I answered walking over to him.

"If you don't want to go to school today, because of what happened yesterday then that's fine," he said calmly with a smile.

"No I'm going in. If I just hide my face in here all day like the coward that I am, that's just letting him win. I'm not letting that happen," I said truthfully.

"Good girl," Emmett said. "I have obviously influenced you."

"Yeah, not so sure in a good way though," I said teasing him.

"Come here you," he said lifting me up over his shoulders and spinning me around.

"Dizzy half human here," I said.

"Oh right, forgot about that," he said letting me down.

I stumbled a bit but I was soon ok. Then it hit me me and Emmett didn't do our detention.

"We didn't do our detention," I said.

"Don't worry, I phoned up the school and told them that you and Edward's aunt has just passed away so your in the clear," grandma said smiling.

Relief flew filled me.

"What about me?" Emmett asked, annoyed.

"Emmett it was your fault in the first place. Nessie just got caught up in it so you do have to do your detention today or it will be for the rest of the week," grandpa said.

"Perfect," Emmett said crossing his arms.

"We better get going," Jake said taking my hand as we walked to the garage.

"I'm going to ride my bike to school, you coming?" He asked as he jumped on his bike.

"Yeah, sure," I said climbing onto the back and putting my arms around Jake's waist after putting my helmet on. Surprisingly there was no traffic today, but even if there were anyway we would have taken a shortcut. We drove past a lot of shops and houses, which were lovely but not as big as ours. As we pulled up in the school parking lot, there was barely anyone looking in our direction. Those that were, were seriously interested in Jake's bike.

"Here," I said handing Jake my helmet.

He took it off me before tying his bike up.

"There," Jake said pulling on the chain.

"Well I'm off to see if I can get transferred into your class Nessie, so I'll catch up with you all later," dad said walking into the school.

"What do I have today then?" Emmett said looking at his timetable.

"Emmett, you seriously have got to learn your classes, your doing my head in," Alice squealed.

"Well then in that case, just for you dear sister," Emmett said. "I won't learn it." 

"You think with being physic she would have seen that coming," Jake muttered in my ear making me chuckle.

"I heard that," Alice snapped.

"Hey Nessie," Carly said coming up to me.

"Hey Carly," I said politely.

"Have you heard, Miss Chambers broke her leg. She won't be in school for at least 2 weeks," Carly said excited.

"Yes," Emmet exclaimed.

"That's him out of detention then," I said rolling my eyes.

Carly just stood there looking at me and Jake.

"Well Carly this is Jake. Jake this is Carly," I said introducing them.

"Nice to meet you," Jake said.

"Yeah, you to. Are you guys together?" She asked curiously.

"Yeah," Jake said smiling.

"Cool, I was just wondering. Sweet ride," she said commenting on Jake's bike.

"Yeah, you never did tell me where it came from," I said looking up at Jake. 

"Oh look there's Edward," he said quickly changing the subject.

"I just got transferred," dad said to me before looking at Carly.

"Edward this is Carly," I said to save myself from repeating the same thing. "You know what just to save myself some time I'll just introduce you to everyone now."

"Everyone this is Carly," I said getting my family's attention. "Carly this is Emmett, Rosalie, Alice, Jasper and Bella."

"Hey," they all chorused.

"Hi," she said smiling.

She was so easy to talk to, I guess it was better because she wasn't shy around my family which was great. Better yet she didn't have a crush on them, I think. The bell rang and we all made our way to our class. Carly walked beside me and Jake.

"So when did you guys meet?" She asked.

"I've known Jake my whole life, so about sixteen years," I said as honestly as I could.

"But aren't you both sixteen?" She asked confused.

"Well, yeah but our families knew each other pretty well so," Jake said.

"Oh right," she said realizing.

We all had art together so we sat beside one another.

"So where do you live Carly?" Jake asked.

"I live on Fifth Avenue, you?" She asked.

"We're a bit further, the beach is right outside our house," Jake said.

"Nice view for you then," she chuckled.

"Yeah, you could say that," Jake said.

We had to draw a picture of the Mona Lisa today, and mine was looking good so far. I looked over to Jake's, it was amazing.

"Wow, Jake, that is really good," I said admiring his work.

"Thanks, yours isn't so bad either," he replied with a cheeky smile.

I hit his arm playfully.

"So do you guys want to go out tonight? I hear there's this really scary movie out and I'm dying to go see it," Carly said obviously excited by the idea.

"Sure, I'll go," I said smiling.

"Jake?" She asked catching on to me saying Jake instead of Jacob. I wonder where he got it from.

"I can't, I have to be somewhere tonight," he said sighing.

"Oh ok then, I guess it's just you and me Nessie," she said getting back to her work.

I touched Jake's arm and asked him, "where are you going?" 

He simply said, "Billy."

Then I understood. I'm sure Billy will be glad to see him, then I just remembered that we would be visiting grandpa Charlie soon, but not until the weekend at the least. When the lesson was over me and Jake went over to our table which we sat at yesterday for break.

"Hey Nessie, so what are you wearing for that scary movie tonight," Alice quickly asked.

"Um, I don't know," I said.

"You might want to be careful around Carly," mum said looking in Carly's direction.

"What, why?" I said turning around to look at Carly.

That's when I realised Lukas was sitting beside her. Carly waved at me. Lukas had his eyes focused on me and Jake who had his arms around me protectively.

"I'm not sure I want to go to Billy's tonight," he said.

"No, your going, I'll be fine," I said convincing him.

"Ok, but if anything happens, promise to tell me straight away," he said looking at me.

"Fine but you have to promise me to not lash out over things," I said looking into his brown eyes.

"Ok, deal," he said smiling.

I reached up and kissed his lips, he kissed me back, his arms still around me.

"Get a room," Alice hissed.

"Trust me, we would if we could," I muttered.

"Nessie," mum cried.

"Bella lighten up, don't pretend your so innocent," Rosalie said smiling.

"Obviously, how do you think I had Nessie?" Mum whispered before the bell rang.

"Saved by the bell," I said laughing.

The rest of the day flew by, I gave Carly our address so she could pick me up. When we got home, I quickly did my homework before choosing an outfit to wear to the movies tonight. I put on a black top with dark jeans, a white boyfriend cardigan and black flats. I let my loose curls down, and put on the bracelet Jake had made me before I headed downstairs.

When I got to the bottom Alice grabbed me.

"Nessie, you look gorgeous, though there is something missing," she started to think. "A handbag, and I have just the one that will go with that outfit." 

"Do you even know which movie you are going to see?" Dad asked.

"Nope, but as long as it is scary then I don't really care," I said smiling.

"Here it is," Alice said giving me a beautiful black bag.

"Thanks Alice," I said taking it  from her.

"Carly is here," she announced, then seconds there was a horn beeping from outside.

"Bye guys, I'll see you later," I said as I walked out the door.

I walked over to where Carly had parked her car and jumped in.

"Hey," I said.

"Hi," she said smiling.

"Your jacket is really cute," I said looking at her jacket, it was black leather. Kind of like a biker jacket but way cuter.

"Thanks, your top is gorgeous," she said looking at me.

"Thanks, so what is the movie called anyway?" I asked curiously.

"Oh, I checked it out and its called, The Fires Of Hell," she said grinning.

"Great, its definitely going to be scary then," I said laughing and she joined in to.

We talked about a lot of things, school, clothes, and cars then we went on to jewellery.

"Wow, that bracelet is amazing. Where did you get it?" She asked admiring my bracelet.

"Jake made if for me, it's one of his talents I guess," I said while her face dropped.

"He made this, that's unbelievable," she said bewildered.

We arrived at the movies and walked into the entrance to find it filled with people.

"Great, we're never going to get a ticket now," Carly said with a sad face.

"Wait, follow me," I said to her as I had an idea.

Confusion swept across her face but she was right behind me as I walked up to the man standing in front of the V.I.P section.

"Name please," he said with no expression.

"The name is Cullen," I said and straight away he removed the red rope to let us past.

"Yes, of course. I'm very sorry Miss Cullen, please go right ahead," he said smiling.

"Thank you," I said as me and Carly entered the V.I.P section.

"Ok, how did you do that?" She asked bewildered.

"My name is known a lot around here and the owner of this place is my dad's friend," I explained to her as we took our seats.

"I guess with him being a surgeon and all, it makes him even more known," she said.

"Yeah," I said remembering that she thinks grandpa is my dad.

The movie began and it was really scary, even for me. When a cat jumped out at the woman, Carly threw her popcorn bucket in the air as well as jumping out of her seat like everyone else did but I couldn't stop laughing at her reaction it was so funny.

"Nessie, what are you laughing at, that was so freaking scary," she whispered trying to catch her breath, her heartbeat was going like 90 miles per hour.

"Your reaction to that was hilarious," I said wiping the tears from my eyes.

She looked at me as if I was a crazy person but we carried on watching the film, there was a lot of blood in it as well but I wasn't thirsty at all, it was more repulsive than tasty.

"Want some?" Carly asked holding up the bucket of popcorn while not taking her eyes from the screen.

"No, I'm good," I said to her.

"More for me then," she said smiling.

When the movie was over we got up out of our seats and headed for the exit.

"The magazine wasn't kidding when it mentioned that movie being the horror film of the year," Carly said as we walked out of the movies.

"Yeah I know, it made me jump a lot," I admitted.

We walked past a few guys who were looking at us.

"Nessie, I think I'm going to socialize a bit, coming?" She asked.

My phone suddenly rang.

"Yeah I'll be their in a second," I said pulling out my phone.

"Ok," she said before walking over beside the two guys.

I looked at my phone and it was dad. I answered it.

"Hey Dad, we just got out of the movies so I'll be back,"

"Nessie get back inside now," dad shouted shouted down the phone.

"What why?" I asked wondering what he was so frustrated about.

"Alice had a vision and she saw Lukas outside the movies, something about him being in the entry beside it or something," he explained.

I froze because I was half way in the entry just at the side of the entrance.

"Just get back inside now!, I'm on."

My phone was suddenly snapped out of my hands, an arm was around me dragging me into the entry even more and a hand was covering my mouth so I wouldn't make an noise.

"Surprise," a familiar voice whispered into my ear, it was Lukas.

He pushed me up against the wall with his hand still covering my mouth, I tried to push him off but he was to strong for a human.

"You know, I was watching you today in school. I saw you and that so called boyfriend of yours kissing, how could you do that to me Nessie? It hurt me," he said almost sounding sincere.

"He isn't my so called anything, he is my boyfriend and I love him, why can't you understand that?" I managed to spit out.

"Because you love me not him, and actions speak louder than words," he said before crushing his lips on mine.

I felt sick, my stomach was twisting and everything, I actually felt like throwing up. I kept pushing him away but he didn't stop, I pushed even harder each time until he gave up.

"That was just our first of many kisses to come, remember that," he said before disappearing out of the entry.

I fell to the ground, tears were dripping down my cheeks, I felt so dirty and useless.

"Nessie," dad said running towards me. "Sweetie lets get you home, you can tell me what happened then." 

"Nessie, are you ok, what happened?" Carly asked rushing over to me.

"She isn't feeling to well Carly, I think I'm going to take her home," dad said putting me into the Volvo.

"Oh is there anything I can do?" She asked, concerned.

"No sorry," dad said.

"I'll see you tomorrow," I said weakly.

"Yeah, sure," she said nodding her head. "Bye." 

Dad was driving unbelievably fast, the fastest I've seen him drive in fact. The tears on my cheeks didn't go away. When we arrived at the house we quickly opened the door to the house. Jake was the first person I saw. I ran into his arms.

"Nessie, thank God," he said hugging me but then he realized something, that I was crying.

"Edward, what happened?" Mum asked coming over to me and stroking my hair.

"I don't know she was like that when I got to her," dad said, worry in his voice.

"Sweetie?" Mum said looking at me for an explanation.

"It was Lukas," I managed to say. "He was in the entry waiting for me and he grabbed me from behind, taking my phone off me." 

"Ok," mum said stroking my arm, encouraging me to go on.

"Then he kept going on about how he saw me and Jake together today and how he was the one who truly loved me," I said sobbing.

Everyone had their eyes on me and they looked worried.

"Nessie, what happened next, why were you crying?" Dad asked.

"He kissed me," I said softly with more tears breaking threw.

Pain twisted through Jake and Dad's faces.

"I tried to push him off, I did but he was strong, to strong for a human," I said explaining.

"Nessie, what are you saying?" Jasper asked.

"I'm saying that maybe he isn't human after all," I said laying out my suspicions.

"Did he say anything or do anything after that?" Grandpa asked.

"After that," I began. "He said that the kiss was the first of many to come and he told me to remember that."

Fury filled Jake's eyes, "I'm going to kill him." 

"Jake we are all angry, but we need to discuss how we are going to play this out," dad said.

"Your honestly thinking of doing nothing when he has hurt your daughter?" Jake said shaking his head, "sorry but I can't do that."

"Jake please don't do anything stupid or you will get hurt," I said pleading with him, he looked into my eyes. "You promised me, remember?"

"Fine, but your not going to be left alone until this is all over," he said looking at me.

"I agree," mum and dad both said.

"I'm going to bed," I said before heading up stairs, I heard Jake behind me.

I threw water over my face and got changed into my pyjamas. I then sat on the edge of my bed with my head down. Jake knelt down in front of me and brushed my hair away from my face.

"I'm sorry Nessie," was all he could say.

"Don't be," I said leaning in to kiss him, he kissed me back and I felt a lot better.

He made me feel like I belonged and like I could do anything when I'm with him. He lifted me into bed and I feel asleep trying to forget about everything that happened today. Knowing that Jake was beside me and that I could feel him next to me made me feel safe.
