25. Thunder 24

Okay so i just realized that in one part i'm writing in the past time and the other part in present time. I'm a lot farther with the actual story (part 48). it will be a short while before the time changes to present. (sorry i'm trying to explain this the best i can...haha)


That evening, while all the vampires that didn’t need sleep went further with moving and decorating and all the things that needed to be done, Skye brought me home.
‘So, how are we going to arrange tomorrow?’ I asked for one last time. Skye smiled – we’ve been through the plan quite a lot already.
‘Adam, as the brand new psychologist in town, will bring the kids to FHS. He’ll drop your dear twin off at the Cullen residence – Esmé is babysitting,’ she winked ,’Then Edward will get you as usual and you’ll meet them at school. you know them because they are Adam’s foster kids, just like you’ve been for a while,’ she was air-quoting ,’but you are all not siblings.’
‘So they actually can hang out with us?’ I questioned just to be sure, stepping out of the car as I did. Skye nodded, ’Yes, but don’t make the humans notice you’ve known each other for years. Keep some kind of distance if you know what I mean.’
‘Alright, Skye, I will. They’re going to be just fine. I’m positive.’ I smiled weakly at her, not knowing why I felt so…down.
‘Of course they will. Now, you, go up to bed. You’ll need the sleep.’
I giggled, hugged her, stepped back to close the door and she drove off.

Through the night I slept restlessly. Edward stayed at his house to make sure the twin settles in just fine. I wanted to stay but everyone pushed me to sleep in early. Bugger. It’s not like I truly, really needed it.

I was hot. Too hot. I felt sweaty, warm and clammy and I wanted it gone. I groaned and sensed the sound was being muffled by my pillow. The sheets, everything was too much. I kicked with my legs to get them off of me hoping it would help.
When I suddenly felt something cold at my calf, I stilled. I glided up over my leg, reaching my bum. by that time I was breathing harsher.
Mr. I-can’t-read-your-mind was actually touching me.
his hand, I assumed, was at my waist, when the other joined, then ever so gently he turned me over onto my back. I blinked my eyes open en was met with his beautiful face.
Buon mattina dolcezza!’ he said, chuckling, though his speech was fluently Italian. It made me kind of melt at half past 6 in the morning. I giggled, ’Are you trying to impress me with your Italian skills Signore Cullen?’ I asked, getting used to the morning light now. he nodded enthusiastically making me giggle again. He gave me a soft peck on my lips and grinned,’ I’m trying mia cara. You should get up though – Your cousins are waiting.’

I sit up straight, bewildered, ’What time is it!?’
‘Seven fifteen, Melody. Alice caught a vision of you oversleeping so I came to wake you up.’
I pushed him aside, though he just moved away, and jumped out of bed quite clumsy. Damn it! couldn’t he have gotten here earlier? I’m in desperate need of a fresh shower, but since I was way too late I’m forced to skip.
I quickly rummaged through my closet to find something decent and chose a pair of jeans, a grey tank top and a soft yellow cardigan. I quickly threw it on, not even thinking about the vampire boyfriend behind me. It’s not like he hadn’t seen it before.
Trying to ignore my reddening cheeks I secured my clothe sin the right places and forced myself out of the bedroom heading for the bathroom to tie up my hair. I didn’t dare to look at Edward.

After having done my hair and I’d put on slight make-up I was ready to go. My bag was already packed last night after I got home.
I stood downstairs as Edward followed me slowly, almost lazily looking with a small grin at the corners of his lips.
He led me outside to the Volvo and I suddenly remembered something.
‘Edward, you brought the boys to Esmé right?’
He nodded, getting out of his obvious daze.’ Yeah, they were terrific to spend the day with Granny Mé.’
I knew they loved Esmé and Carlisle too of course. Now they were here in Forks, their grandparents could spend more time with them as well. I was already looking forward to this afternoon.
Edward drove me to school like the usual. Bella was probably being brought there by Jacob, something that didn’t put me at ease – Edward and Jacob didn’t really get along.
Charlie had explained Bella about my ‘foster parents’, how Bella saw Scarlett and Adam, and my siblings moving back here. She never met de kids though, and she wouldn’t meet Raven and Blaze anytime soon. I was glad thought that Charlie set up a good believable story. I knew he hated the lying, but he knew that it was better for all of us. even for Bella herself. The crazy thing was, however, that she knew about the Cullens and the wolves, while Charlie wasn’t aware of the wolves.

It was quite the weird puzzle and I simply hoped that one day everything would be clear and out in the open between us. How peaceful it would go….
‘We’re here,’ Edward informed me, bringing me out of my thoughts and quickly kissing my nose. My head and mind might be sex-crazed but I truly loved she sweet soft touches. The little nose-kiss was actually a favorite of mine, but then again – every kiss of Edward was.
I grinned excited for today since my cousin would be at the same school a is was again. we enjoyed our time in Los Angeles before everything changed.
I got out of the car, shut the door and saw Scarlett’s Audi parked close to the secretary building. It was time to set up the charade.
Alice was next to me at once, ’Hi! Did you sleep well? Sorry for the late wake-up call though….’

I shrugged nonchalantly, ’it was fine Alice. I can’t even remember having any kind of dream, so no nightmares. And it’s okay. I made it in time right?’
Alice nodded and I saw Rosalie, Emmett and Jasper get closer. ‘Scarlett and Adam are inside aren’t they?’Jasper questioned as he positioned himself next to Alice, reaching out to hold her pale hand. I nodded,’ Yes. They are settling them in. Scarlett is the new pediatrician, Adam the new psychologist.’ I let him know, searching the other sets of golden eyes as well to explain further, putting up ‘the mask’ for my cousins.
‘Denim Bright is fifteen and a Sophomore. Faith Bright is fifteen as well but a Freshman and Alana Bright is fourteen and also a Freshman.’
They all nodded, memorizing my words in their smart vampire minds. I glanced at the secretary building again, just in time to see Denim be the first to leave through the door, as the school bell rang. He caught my gaze a smirked ‘Hey stranger. I’m not supposed to know you,’ I heard his laughter through his minds voice and tried to hold back the giggle that wanted to escape. I would wake Satan if Edward knew something was up.
I turned my head away from him while I was intrigued by this day. I thought back to my first day, how my classmates told me about the Cullens and how strange they were. And now two years later I was watching how they went through the same. A small curvy smile lit up my face.
‘We’d better brace ourselves for the annual gossip again..’ Rosalie said, sarcasm drip[ping form her voice. I chuckled – like me and Bella, every new student would get to hear the gossip about the Cullen clan. And so would my cousins too.
thinking about Bella – where the hell was she? Not that I truly wanted to talk to her since she got so mad at me the other night for kissing MY boyfriend. But she was my sister after all. And I worried too much about everyone and especially after I became a mother of two.
The others began walking towards the building and I followed suit, grasping Edward’s hand. he turned his head and smiled crookedly at me as warmth blossomed in my cheeks. I felt so shy all of the sudden.
