7. Thunder 6

After I’d said goodbye to the twin, I told Skye that Edward and I would see them that evening around nine. I hung up the phone and quickly finished my breakfast, just in time to hear Bella descending the stairs in a hurry.
“Morning dwarf.” She greeted without looking at me and walking briskly for the front door. I just shrugged and followed, retrieving my coat from the peg and grabbing my locker keys. I waited inside, slinging my bag over my shoulder and after Bella had driven off, the familiar silver Volvo turned into the driveway. I smiled, flustered as always and got outside. I carefully stepped down the porch, seeing some slick ice here and there. when I reached the ground I jogged towards Edward’s outstretched arms, pulling him to me and smelling his fresh soapy scent. 
The low chuckle that rumbled through his perfectly sculpted chest, which was unfortunately hidden beneath his grey shirt, made me blush. 
“You are chirpy this morning.” His velvety voice exclaimed as a long icy finger pushed my chin upwards. I looked deeply into his warm, gold eyes as he stared in mine. He gave me a crooked grin before slowly leaning forward. My hands moved to his neck, my fingers weaving through his ever wild hair and then our lips touched in a sweet, passionate kiss. I molded into him, pressing myself up against his chest and not bothering the thick fog around us at all. 
Unfortunately, all too soon, Edward pulled back. I saw a fast flicker of hunger cross in his eyes before the expression softened. 
“Let’s go – don’t want to be late and have Alice bugging me about it.” He said, smiling and leading my to the passenger’s seat, opening the door. Ever de gentleman. But I liked that about him. I liked it, that he could act like a honest man and be animalistic on the other side. However, that side of him was something I never saw. I was hoping I would sometime from now on, or I had to get to drastic measures of seduction. 
I was seated in the car and within a millisecond, Edward had the engine revved up and was smoothly turning out of the driveway. 
We were silent during the ride to FHS, but it was comforting. Especially because his hand was wrapped around mine, brushing smooth circles with his thumb. From my peripheral vision I could see that he wanted to say something – his mouth opened a few times but nothing came out. A true Edward thing to do. I always thought that was his way of showing his insecurity or the blush he could never have. I turned my head to urge him on.

“Have you called the boys? How are they?” he then said, a small hint of a smile tugging at his lips. I leaned back against the leather headrest of the Volvo and looked at him.
“Yes I did. they were wide awake like every morning. And they’re good – they told me about their dream. Apparently you’ve been baking pancakes last night. And here I thought you were chasing bears…” I said, giggling a little at his sheepish expression.
“I can’t wait to see them again tonight.” He said, sighing longingly. I nodded, “neither can I. I’ve missed their hugs you know. Just seeing them will put me at ease again.” I said, closing my eyes a few seconds at the precise moment that we arrived at the parking lot. I knew without opening my eyes, that Edward parked the car next to Rose’s M3 and Emmett’s Jeep. The purring engine stopped and I felt his prominent gaze on me. 

“Did I…made you feel uneasy?” his voice held a certain edge of insecurity and the tense string of anger somehow. 
I re-opened my eyes, my gaze fixated on his vampire siblings outside, who were giving us privacy, but still heard us anyway. ”Well, yes. But Edward I’ve been restless like this from the summer when I turned fourteen…It’s kind of normal now but when I hold Raven and Blaze I realize it’s not normal.” I explained. I saw Edward flinch through the reflection of the car window I was looking through. 
“I try to learn it – to trust the right things surrounding me but it’s difficult.” I went further, turning my face toward him again, pleading with my eyes, ”I trust you, Edward with my life and I also trust my siblings but I am a suspicious person of nature and – “ 
He cut me off with a harsh look in his eyes. The word nature made him go rigid in the seat, ”stop. That’s enough information on that subject. And speaking about that subject – we don’t discuss that remember?” he spat, opening the door angrily and stepping out in the drizzling rain. It slammed shut quickly after and I squeezed my eyes from the aggressiveness in his behavior. 
He was always gentle with me, the twin, everyone. But lately, and especially when I brought up ‘the subject’ he would get a temper. I hated it but felt unfair in telling him he shouldn’t do it – I was also aggressive by nature. And he just practically hissed, that I wasn’t supposed to tell him anything that had to do with nature!

And yet here I went again, getting pissed and quite aggressive myself. I clenched and unclenched my fists as I breathed roughly, opening the door of the car and stepping out myself. I slung my backpack over my shoulder and stomped off towards the Cullens who were all looking at me, including my boyfriend. 
‘Uh-oh…there is practically hanging a thunderstorm above her head. I’m feeling really, and I say really furious right now. And Fuck-up-ward, that’s really and understatement. What the hell did you say to her?’ 
“None of your damn business Jasper.” 
I growled in frustration upon hearing Jasper’s thoughts and Edward’s following reply, changing my direction. 
“Melody where are you going?” I heard Alice yell form behind me, since I wasn’t that far away. By this time I was outraged because Edward promised me only a few hours earlier that we would act as normal as we could and now he was even behaving more ridiculous than before! My emotions were quickly spiraling to dangerous heights, unfortunate for Jasper, another thing that belonged to my fucking NATURE!
“I’m going to homeroom, studying damn nature since I have nothing better to do!” I groused, knowing I was irritating Edward, my voice sounding like some creepy dead monster. 
Ah well – who was I kidding? It was partly true!
‘Can’t they just behave once? It’s always drama, drama ,drama! Oh Jesus Edward chill! I’m free to have my own thoughts – don’t care if you like them or not..’
Rose was noticing it too, just like the rest and I hated that even more. 
I walked up the stairs of the main building on my way to my locker when Bella was suddenly next to me. 

“I’m getting seriously mad! Aren’t you?” she whispered loudly enough to hear in the filling aisles of Forks High. I frowned, pushing the hood of my jacket down.
“What exactly are you talking about?” we reached my locker and I roughly opened it.
“Us being grounded. Dad is extremely exaggerating this. I barely see Jake. We can’t even go out together! And it’s nine months ago that we left to Italy. I mean, grounding us forever wasn’t exactly that right?” she complained while I pushed and tugged at the books and notebooks inside the small space of the locker. Out of my frustration I even snapped a pencil or two. 
“Yep, you’re right. But you know?” I said, slamming the metal door close and locking it again, seeing Bella wince form the heavy sound. I saw The Cullens enter the corridor, most of their gazes fixated on us. 
“Everyone is walking in my path lately. So yeah – certain people exaggerating things isn’t exactly new for us is it?” I growled, tugging Bella along with me at her arm, giving Edward a dark look. I saw him gasp, just like the others when a rush of gold scorched through my irises, lighting them up. 
“Let’s go to maths.” I told Bella, ignoring the obvious shocking vamps behind us. Suck on that pretty boy – it's game on.
