It was the first giorno of classes. Edward left early. I called Jacob and asked him to pick up Nessie. Alice went to school with me. She’s talking so many things.
“Bella, There’s a new negozio on Seattle. te want to come with me? Rosalie detto that the clothes there were amazing.”
I’m not actually listening to her because I’m thinking about Nessie’s nightmare.
Who was that girl?
Is she in Amore with Edward?
Is Edward in Amore with her too?
Will she really break our family?
Is Edward really going to leave us?
Nessie’s face were still on my mind.
She was really hurt.
Then, Alice cut me off.
“Hey, are te listening to me?”
“Oh! Yeah, of course.”
“You miss Edward, dont you?"
We entered the school.
Everyone was looking at us. Probably, because Alice was a well-known member of the famous Cullen Family. Some girls were staring at me. Alice wasn’t my classmate. So, she left me in front of my room.
As I entered the class, the noise of my classmates suddenly stopped. They stared at me. I went on the last column, last row. There’s a vacant sit beside me. And that’s for my Edward.
Someone in front of me started to talk.
“Hi.” She said.
I looked up and then I saw her beautiful face. Her skin was pale. Her eyes were golden brown. Her hair was blonde and straight. Her dimples caught my attention. She was so attractive. I finally found the courage to talk.
“Hello…” I whispered.
“My name is Ashley Walker, what’s yours?”
Our classmates were still silent, looking at us.
“Oh! Really? You’re a member of the Cullen Family?”
“Oh! Maybe, you’re Dr. Cullen’s newly-adopted daughter.. da the way, where did they found you?”
Before I could answer, a group of girls went near me.
Ashley face front and didn’t talk.
One of the them, who’s eyes were blue and hair was a little bit curly sat beside Ashley but facing me... She was one of those people who stared at me in the hallway with Alice.
“Hey, girl!” She said.
I was speechless.
“I’m Nikki. I saw te with Alice Cullen few minuti ago.”
“Yeah, I think you’re close with her. So we wanted to ask te to do something for us.” Another girl said.
“What?” I asked them, nervously.
“We saw your profilo and we knew that you’re married so we guess that te don’t have any crush here, right?”
“Yes.” I said.
“Well, I supposed te know Edward Cullen, that beautiful man who, I think, your…brother... I want te to introduce me to him...”
“Oh! Yeah. Of course, I know Edward. Why do te want to meet him?”
“Well, actually, I want - “ – she hesitated – “... Oh! I have an idea. Why don’t te give me another favor? Help me to attract him… isn’t it a good one?” she said, looking at her friends.
I was shocked. I stopped breathing. I cant even sposta my hands. Its like a thunder had struck me and tore me into pieces. I looked at her angrily, and then took a deep breath. I relaxed a bit.
Is she the girl that Nessie was talking about?
No. I won’t let her break my family. And besides, Edward’s mine. He’s my property.
No one was allowed to take him away from me.
“Why?” I managed to ask.
“Because I wanted to have relationship with him.”
“No.!” I shouted.
Everyone looked at me. I was ashamed. Maybe, If there’s blood inside me, I would be blushing right now.
“Ooops. Sorry.” I apologized.
Nikki looked at me angrily. Her eyes were like Victoria’s when we were in the clearing.
Finally, our professor came inside. We all greeted her.
“Good morning, Mr. Grey.”
Nikki face front. She glanced at me, before the class had started. .
I can’t really concentrate on the subject. I was thinking about Nikki. I was thinking about my husband.
I tried to erase her face on my mind but I couldn’t. I decided to look up and listen. I was surprised that Ashley was looking at me, she smiled. And I smiled back.
Finally, the campana, bell rang.
I went directly to the door but Nikki stopped me.
I hesitated. If only I can ripped off her head and throw her to the ocean. I really wanted to attack her.
Ashley was at my side at once. I really didn’t notice her. She’s really like a vampire.
“Girl, I want te to do me that favor.” Nikki finally said.
Ashley cut me off.
“Nikki, Stop forcing her to do things that she really don’t want to do.!”
“Who the hell are you?” Nikki asked, disappointed.
“I’m Ashley Walker.”
“And who are te to stop me?” Nikki asked. Her voice was loud, angry.
“She’s my friend. And te don’t have the right to use high tone when you’re talking with her.” I told Nikki.
“You stupid bitch!” she said, about to attack me when Alice appeared at the door and shouted.
Nikki stopped, shocked. ‘She really should be frightened’, I thought... As we all know, Alice was Edward’s closest sister.
“What are te going to do with her?” Alice managed to ask. She went directly on my side.
“Uh-oh. No.. Ummm. Actually, I was just asking a favor and –“
Alice cut her off.
“I don’t care. Who do te think te are? Don’t te ever attempt to hurt her...?”
“Why?” Nikki asked.
Edward, who was at the door at once, cut her off.
“Because she’s my wife and you’re not allowed to hurt her. o else you’ll suffer.” He detto as he, like Alice, went directly on my side. He, still, like a Greek god. Everyone was looking at him, amazed at his beauty.
“B-Bella’s your wife?” she asked, about to cry.
“Exactly.” Edward said, angrily.
“No..No..No..” she said. Her face was expressionless as if the world had dumped her. Her eyes were frightened. She was ashamed. Everybody saw the scene. There were many people looking at us outside the door. Her lips pursed together as tears started to run down her face.
She quickly went out the room.
As soon as she left, Edward looked at the boys who were still looking at me.
He gave them a meaningful look.
“Oh! da the way, I want te to—“
I was about to introduce Ashley to Edward when I notice that she wasn’t standing with me.
“What?” Edward asked, confused.
“It’s nothing.” I said.
We started to walk on the hallway, heading to the cafeteria...
Edward wrapped his arms around my waist and Alice was at my side, whispering on the phone, talking with Jasper.
We entered the cafeteria and, of course, as I expected.
Everyone was looking at us.
We sat on the last table.
We stayed there for a long time, quietly.
Suddenly, my phone buzzed.
I looked at the number.
It was Jake.
“Hello.” I said.
“Mommy!” Nessie shouted.
“Oh! Hi honey, how are you?”
“I’m fine, te know what? I’ve beaten Jacob on chess.”
“Oh! Really? I’m proud of te honey.”
From the corner of my eye, I saw Edward, reaching for the phone.
He wants to talk with Nessie.
I gave him the phone.
“Hey nessie… Really...Yeah…I’m proud of you…Don’t worry, We’ll pick te up later….Okay, Bye...”
“What was that all about?” I asked.
“Well, Nessie wants to go out with us.” He said.
“Oh!” that’s all I can say.
“That’s why were cutting of classes.”
He just smiled.
“Why do we need to cut of classes? We can go out later after the dismissal.”
He looked at me seriously.
I was confused.
“Bella, there’s something I wanted to tell you.”
“Well, I told te yesterday that the Volturi wants to talk with me, right?”
I just nodded.
“What about it?” I asked, curiously.
“Actually, it’s all about Nessie.” He detto calmly.
“Okay, and?” I asked waiting.
“And...” he detto like he didn’t want to tell me.
“Will te please get straight to the point?” I asked him directly.
“Okay, well…Aro offers me something. He detto that since Nessie was half human and half vampire, her growth was extra-ordinary. And she wants Nessie to be home schooled.”
I took a deep breath.
“Okay, I’ll ask Jacob to be her teacher.” I said.
“No, it’s not like that. Aro wants her to go to Italy so Jane and the rest of the Volturi guard will be her teachers.”
“What?” I shouted. Luckily, the campana, bell started to rang that the cafeteria was almost empty.
“Easy, Bella. Aro just wants to help. And besides if the Volturi taught her, she would be able to know the rules and she will be più civilized.”
“No, Edward. We can teach her the rules. I don’t think I can manage to live if my daughter was not with me. te can’t take her away from me.” I said, angrily.
Alice suddenly hesitated. I know that she’s seeing something from her vision.
“Alice. We have to do it. It’s for Nessie’s sake.” Edward said, glancing to his sister.
I grimaced. But then, I pleaded.
“No, Edward, please. I can’t live without her.” I whispered, sadly.
Edward just looked at me. I know that he can see the pain in my eyes.
“I’m sorry Bella. But I have to do it.
I shook my head.
I covered my eyes.
I really wanted to cry but I don’t know how.
I can’t live without Nessie…
