18. Thunder 17

We drove away from Charlie’s house and I noticed Edward’s hands straining around the steering wheel. I could guess what was bothering him but didn’t ask about it. if he wanted to discuss it with me he could start himself.
It was silent for a while longer as we drove upon the highway until Edward apparently couldn’t hold it any longer and het snapped.
‘Are you going to tell me about the ‘deal’ and the ‘move’? it was all very vague even for me.’ he started with a soft, menacing voice. I sighed, looking to my right out of the window.
‘What do you want to hear first?’
‘The good news. Or the better, if there even is good news.’
I rolled my eyes toward the window. Edward Cullen, always mister negative. ‘It’s great news in some way. I’m sure you’ve heard or read about all those serial kills in Seattle?’ I questioned carefully, turning my head to study his profile. At once it tensed and he was looking at me harshly.
‘No, I haven’t heard or read about that. What’s going on?’ he growled. I was afraid if the steering wheel would survive the trip since he was gripping it in his steel hands.

‘There have been rows of kills in Seattle. They suspect a gang but they never find any proof or other damage than just people missing and death people. It’s horrifying.’ I shook my head to get rid of the image of cold bodies spread over the streets of Seattle, ‘Charlie demanded that my siblings needed to leave.’
‘Smart move. I would’ve done the same.’ Edward remarked harshly.
‘We called them and Charlie proposed his idea to Scarlett and she agreed.’ I moved on with explaining it, smiling slightly now,’ Which means that not just my siblings will live closer to us, but we’ll be able to see Raven and Blaze everyday if we want to. And yes – I want to. Very much.’
Edward’s face suddenly brightened, and a grin spread his lips.
‘So despite of the reason, I’m so glad they’re going to be here in Forks, close to your home. You know about that old forester’s house right?’
Edward nodded, still smiling as I noticed that his hands weren’t clenching around the steering wheel any longer. ‘It’s fantastic they’ll be closer. I miss them too much during the weeks…but how do we keep them safe? As in keeping our secret?’
I shrugged,’ we could say Skye and Layla adopted them. Raz for my brother and Layla and Aze for my sister and Chris. It would only be for the public eye, but seeing they’re still growing as coals that’s not very wise.’ I mused, as he listened intently, his brow creased.
‘As long as we’re still their parents and the only ones having that duty, then I’m fine with it.’ he said in a clipped tone. I rolled my eyes,’ Edward seriously, my siblings know very well that Raven and Blaze are our children. acting as if they’re adopted doesn’t mean they really need to act like their parents. That only has to happen with Dan, Fay and Lanny. They will be in the public eye very often.’ I snapped. He could be so dramatic sometimes. Did he just seriously think that my siblings would start to own his sons.
Edward huffed, ’Fine. What’s the bad news?’
I frowned,’ well it’s not specifically bad news….it’s actually good news with a deal.’ I said softly still frowning. I didn’t want to ruin my evening and I had a feeling Edward wasn’t going to take the whole “Jacob and Bella” thing very well.

‘I’m curious. It has something to do with you being grounded. And you’re free now so what’s this deal?’ Edward’s voice was normal again, lighter. I doubted if that would last long as we were almost in Seattle now with his racing over the highways.
‘Well,…I’m free as long as I spend more time with my friends. And with friends Charlie means Be – ‘
‘No. not happening.’ He interrupted me. I held up my hand.
‘you didn’t even let me finish.’
He turned to face me again, his eyes cold. ‘I’m telling you that it’s not going to happen. Bella is always at La Push and Jacob is there. along with the rest of that pack of mongrels.’ He sneered with a look of pure disgust on his face. My jaw slackened for a second at a loss for words.
‘How the fuck do you know that!?’ I spluttered. If he’d read Charlie’s mind he wouldn’t have asked me about it.
‘Uh, maybe because your father truly loathes me, he is completely in love with Jacob and he would be very pleased if you went to la push and stayed away from me. you said more time with friends – I put two and two together. And I told you – it’s not happening.’
I started to get angry at him. again. I crossed my arms over my chest. ‘what’s wrong with that? It’s not dangerous or something. Jacob’s my friend.’
‘not dangerous!? Melody do you hear what you’re saying? Those puppy’s lose control when they get angry. I don’t want you any more scarred than you are!’ he snapped, a growling edge in his voice. I gasped at his words and blinked back the sudden rush of tears that wanted release. I clenched my jaw to keep from crying. At this point we arrived in the driveway of the large house my sister had bought in Seattle.
‘Well Edward,’ my voice broke from a sob, ‘I’m fucking scarred all over already so one or two more wouldn’t hurt. Besides – the sight is already fucking ruined. And then another thing,’ I looked at him sharply, opening the car door, ‘If Jacob or any other dog would try and hurt me I could kill him with just one flick of my wrist if I want to.’ I pushed the words out of my throat and jumped out of the car. he was fast next to me as I dried my tears. Edward’s hands stopped me by my shoulders and he pushed my chin up. his eyes were troubled with guilt.

‘Sorry that was out of line. I didn’t mean it like that – it’s just that I don’t want to see you being hurt or anything like that. And even though you might be less fragile than I think it terrifies me to imagine you being hurt in any way.’ He brushed the salty tears from my face as his eyes softened in the way I loved seeing the golden gems shine, ‘You’re beautiful. Your scars are something of the past and someday I hope you will tell me. but even with the scars you are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in all my ninety years. I’m doing everything wrong lately and I realize that, but behind all the fucked up things I still adore you to no end.’
I snorted, blinking away the wetness. His words warmed up my heart and I knew how he felt but if I wasn’t allowed to go to la push to make sure I wasn’t grounded anymore – how was I going to see him?

‘Edward let me go to la push on Monday. If I don’t do that how am I going to see you?’
Edward sighed heavily,’ please Melly I’m begging you. Don’t go. You can see me at night when I’m in your room.’ He said warily, his eyes shifting from side to side. I wanted to say something like “I’m still human in some way so I need sleep at midnight” but decided against it. I knew just another way how I was going to achieve my goal – my invisibility never came without a reason I guessed.
Edward wanted to say something else, where I’d decided upon to just let it go in through one ear and out through the other when the front door opened. Faith appeared in the doorway.
‘Hey, are you guys going to come in for coffee or not?’
