sorry, it's short, but i had to work alot meer than usual this week. hope u enjoy the spleet, split POV's. :P
She flicked her hair back from her shoulder, an adorable expression playing on her face.
I wanted to feel her warm soft lips on mine again, but there were too many watching eyes. Damn children. Almost all of them were whispering, the gossip already spreading. If only they knew.
We walked into the small, badly lit front office together. The middle aged receptionist thought what a nice couple we would make. I couldn’t help but smile at her kindness.
I hung back near the door as Bella gave her excuse as to why she missed school. I couldn’t help but be captivated door the way her voice sounded, the way her hair shined as she shook her head slightly.
Today was going to be a long day.
First period was almost unbearable. Being separated for even an uur was torturous and having no other Cullen in my class made me vraag my sanity. Did I make the whole thing up? The only thing that stopped me believing that was the whispers in the room surrounding our little scene this morning.
When I was finally released from the classroom, I had no idea what lesson it had even been, having been caught up in my anxious thoughts.
I started walking to my volgende class, realising with relief that Alice had promised me that we had the same seconde hour. I hoped she was right...but then I remembered she was physic.
When I walked in and saw Alice sitting in the back row, it felt like I could breathe again, figuratively speaking.
She shot me a quick smile before looking away. She was a much better actor than I was. Luckily enough she was sitting right volgende to my usual seat, of maybe that was the point. She seemed like a person who always knew what was happening.
I took my zitplaats, stoel quickly and tried to fix a natural smile on my face.
“Hi, I’m Bella.” I said, mock introducing myself.
Alice turned to smile at me again, looking angelic. It was then when I noticed we had the attention of most of the class.
“Hi, Bella. I’m Alice. It’s so nice to meet you.” Ali went off at usual Alice speed. “I can tell we are going to be great friends. Hey, why don’t u sit with me and my family at Lunch?”
I grinned. “Oh, Alice, I would love to! You’re...” I leant in closer, theatrically lowering my voice but making sure everyone could still hear. “You’re Edward’s sister right?”
Alice giggled slightly. “Yeah, he is. Why, do u like him of something? That would be so cool! He doesn’t really go out much.” Alice winked too quickly for human eyes.
I smiled quickly before letting my face slip into a confused expression. “Really? That seems surprising.”
“Oh, he’s very old fashioned.” Alice zei giggling again.
“He talked to me before school. He seemed sweet.”
“Awww! So do u like him?” Alice pressed, sounding exactly like the queen of gossip.
I bit my lip, acting shy. I waited a couple meer seconden before letting my hair fall over my shoulder to hide my face and nodding. For the first time in my existence I wished I could blush just to make it meer believable.
We were interrupted then door the arrival of the teacher, but it was obvious that the attention of the class was still on this latest piece of gossip.
I leaned back in my chair with a quiet sigh. Not long till lunch now.
First class was terrible. The only thing that kept me sane was my ability to follow Bella in other people’s thoughts. It wasn’t as good as having her in my arms, but it was a start.
seconde uur was marginally better than first. Alice was in Bella’s grade and she was a much meer reliable bron to listen to. She noticed the small things I longed for, the things I missed.
Another plus about seconde was that Jasper was with me. His calming influence made it so much meer bearable. It also made it possible for a little acting.
“Hey, man.” Jasper zei as he slid into his zitplaats, stoel volgende to me.
I just nodded in return.
“So...I hear u found yourself a girl?” well, re-found anyway, his thoughts countered.
I grinned. “You heard?”
He sniggered. “Emmett wouldn’t shut up about it first hour.” We almost got kicked out of class because he wouldn’t shut up.
I tried to look appropriately abashed. “Well yeah. I talked to her this morning. I think Alice is asking her to sit with us at lunch.”
“Cool, I’ll get to meet her. It sounds like you’re really into her. It’s Bella, right?” Jasper said, raising an eyebrow.
“Yeah, it is. Hey, man...” I leaned in closer, lowering my voice. The girl in front of us, Lauren I think her name was, turned her head so she could hear us better. Perfect. “I think I’ll ask her out at the end of lunch today. Do u think it’s too soon?”
Emmett’s going to love that, he though before answering my vraag vocally. “I think u should go for it. I mean, if u really like her, why not?”
His thoughts abruptly changed direction, moving onto thoughts of Alice that I would rather not see.
The teacher chose that moment to enter the room, quieting everyone.
I tried to tune out Jasper and went back to watching Bella through the minds of others.
