16. Thunder 15

Edward and I were silent again an luckily I felt my fury cease by every breath I took. I didn’t look at him, afraid I might get angry again. I just did not know what to do.
Then, Edward’s cold fingers touched my ,overheated from anger, cheeks, forcing me to look into his eyes. I felt him brush away wetness what I guessed must be a tear that fell unnoticed. He sighed, his intoxicating breath dazzling my senses, relaxing me in a strange way.
‘I don’t want to leave you nor do I want to leave the twin. But please understand that I want you to have a happy life. A normal one. Not one where you constantly have to run and hide for danger and eventually end up with broken bones.’ He whispered soothingly, brushing my hair with his left hand.

‘But how? you can’t tell me to go to California or whatever sunny place on the world, so I’m away from vampires when you’re a vampire yourself. And you want to stay with me. How would you make that work if I even tend to consider this whole nonsense?’ my voice was a bit groggy from the yelling. Edward’s cautious eyes softened a little, ’I would find a way. I don’t have to go to college now. You could go there to university, we could buy a nice house close to campus. I can watch the twin during the days while you’re at school. It might work out just fine.’
I needed to admit that it had its charm now he explained the idea behind it but still – what would he do when I was in school and Raven or Blaze would need to see a doctor during the time that the blistering sun was on its highest for example? What would he do. He couldn’t go out into the sunlight. Did I want this? Was I strong enough to go back to LA, where I’d definitely be going back to so my family could come back if they wanted, and live in the place where I died? Fiorenza surely wouldn’t be there, still convinced that my heart did stop beating that horrendous summer night.

‘I can’t go back to LA. Too many memories.’ I let him know with the same strain in my voice as earlier. My hands were balled in fists, all white knuckled. I felt Edward sigh as my head was leaning against his chest.
‘Maybe we should just drop it for now. I don’t want to fight again and especially not since we’re going to Seattle tonight.’ He whispered, his index-finger at my chin, pushing it up. I smiled shyly and nodded,’ please.’
He was moving his arms to release me but mines were fast at his wrists, stopping him forcefully. Something that startled him, I could see that in his dilating pupils.

‘No,..I want you to hold me a little longer.’ I whispered to him, looking up from under my lashes, ’I’ve missed that you know.’
Edward’s body relaxed again as he forced himself to get used to it. Baby-steps as he said the other night. His arms wrapped back around my shoulders and I let the tension leave my body. My body’s desires told me that I wanted to be with him like this all day. And more of course, but the ‘more’ wasn’t on the agenda for a long time I guessed. Unless….
I slowly moved my head towards his collarbone, letting my lips drop a sweet kiss there. my noses skimmed along his neck then, leaving more small kisses in my wake. Edward’s arms were still around me and then I tried to stand on my toes, being so small. My hands were splayed over his abs which were easy to feel through his thin, blue shirt. I was kissing along his jaw line now, a small lick here and there to make his breathing hitch and then finally I reached his full, perfect sculpted lips.
Mine, my subconscious growled.
‘You’re one force of nature. But I love you, more than you imagine.’ He whispered, my lips against his, just brushing. My cheeks were warm at his admission. Of course I knew that, but it was difficult to see sometimes. I needed to take the mask off, the one that broods and self-loathes all the time.

‘I know. And-‘
I was trying to finish my sentence when my hair was suddenly flying as he, apparently, sat down on the chair behind me, with me sideways in his lap, my legs bungling above the ground.
‘I love you too.’ I said, catching my breath from his sudden move. he rarely did that, being himself in all aspects. I liked that. I giggled softly at the thought as he grinned.
‘Now, I believe you were busy with something but first – Am I forgiven?’ he asked, his nose against mine, brushing it in a sweet Eskimo’s kiss. I acted as if I needed to deeply and thoroughly think about that. He tickled my sides.

‘Yeah, yeah. We’re good. But the discussion is not over yet.’ I said, letting the last part being some sort of warning. It needed to be negotiated.
I felt him smile against my lips and now I was done with waiting for my kiss. Or his kiss…or whatever. I let my lips touch his softly, slowly but awfully sweet. I loved the taste of his soft, reddish polished lips and reveled in the feelings that were evoked by the sweet lover’s touch. Our mouths danced, battled for dominance as I let out a short giggle or two as he chuckled. I missed this, us in this way. Like this there were no worries no danger, no fights. It was the best time I had that night. My hands still on his chest, started to explore his abs as his strong hands reached for my hips, his thumbs touching the skin at the gap between my jeans and t-shirt.
However, just when I wanted to try and lick his bottom lip, as we were already breathless, when a loud round of cursing ruined my perfect Edward moment.

I was startled hugely when I heard Bella screech from out of the doorway, that I pushed myself away from Edward and managed to fall backwards, but before I hit the floor, Edward had already lifted my back on my feet and in front of me himself now. Bella was standing wide eyed, red headed a slack jawed in front of us at the door with her fists balled up tight. I looked at Edward, who’s hair was sticking at every side now, even wilder than usual, with also wild golden eyes that indicated how secretly much he liked it. I on the other hand was beet red, still trying to control my breathing since Edward dazzled the crap out of me, lips swollen and also eyes wild with want.
And then I realized we were totally busted. By Bella. in Charlie’s house.

‘Er… Bella relax, it is ehm…‘
I was trying to soothe the situation here. Of course it wasn’t that I was afraid for a cheating kind of thing – that wasn’t possible since we weren’t cheating. But knowing Bella and her secret lunatic desires for my boyfriend it would be better if I explained it before she could go nuts.

‘HOW COULD YOU, YOU SLUT!’ she cried when she found her voice and gathered he jaw from the floor.
‘Bella if you give me the chance to sa – ‘
‘DON’T TALK TO HER LIKE THAT!’ Edward defended by yelling at Bella.
‘YOU’RE A LYING WHORE! THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE!’ she roared further stepping towards me. Edward held his hands out to her defending me, not needed but I very much appreciated the gesture since I didn’t want more nail cuts in my cheeks, when the door flew open once again.
‘OH FOR PENGUINS’ SAKE BELLA, GET A FUCKING GRIP! O OTTENERE UNA VITA!’ I raged back at her. Hell, even when I at least try to be the calm and collected one, it doesn’t work.
‘Alright that’s ENOUGH! I do NOT TOLERATE you two calling each other whatever else besides your names. Which means, Isabella Marie, that I’m certainly not pleased with you calling your sister a whore. Is that clear!?’ Charlie yelled, standing between Bella and me and Edward. His stern gaze went from my sister to us now, especially me.

‘What happened?’ he demanded in and authoritative voice. I rolled my eyes wanting all this rollercoaster stuff to be over. Fight, kiss Edward, cry, fight with Charlie, fight with Edward, kiss Edward, Bella being a drama queen. Couldn’t I just leave the damn house and hug my sons? It would be the only medicine for my complete calm by this minute.
‘Don’t roll your eyes at me Melodiana Helena Marie. Tell me what happened.’ Charlie demanded again. I sighed with irritation and Edward squeezed my hand.

‘Dad, the only thing that happened was that Bella saw me kissing Edward. Questo é tutto. And I have all rights to kiss my boyfriend.’ I snapped.
