"Jasper, would you please turn the music down?" I asked him quietly. Music was the least I needed. Alice had dragged me off to school this morning, taunting me that Emmett wouldn't like me to be trapped inside all day long. Alice was tapping her pointy fingers on the space next to her. The space Emmett should be filling. I sighed. I desperately needed him back, but out of my own selfishness. I just wanted him to hold me close, and whisper sweet nothings into my ear, as Edward could do with Bella. I quickly glance over at them and saw Edward kiss Bella's neck. But he nodded at me. At least someone understood. He remembered what it was like when he was without Bella, I could only assume he knew I was going through the same without Emmett. I groaned pitifully at his name. Poor me. Poor selfish, needy, stupid me.
I started imagining Emmett sat next to me, lacing his fingers through my and stroking my hair, I smiled when I felt someone pull me up but realised it was Jasper pulling me out of the car. "Rosalie, be strong! He's coming back, I can feel it!" Alice smiled at me, I took her word for it. After all, she was the one who could see the future.
"Well, well, well! Look who's finally back on the market!" I turned around to see Tyler Crowley smiling his smarmy smile at me. "Took long enough!" I pitied the poor boy. As if he thought he could replace Emmett! "Oooh. I can only imagine what Emmett would say if he could hear you now! Unfortunately for you, boy, I'm still 100% taken!" I was thrown aback by his remark. Where did he get that kind of information from? I asked Edward through my head. "Apparently, Lauren Mallory told the whole student body that Emmett had dumped you and asked her out. All pure lies-"
I scoffed in the middle of his sentence. He'd said it quietly enough that only I could hear his words.
Tyler and his 'posse' scattered off and I suddenly went into a full on rage, "HOW DARE THAT FILTHY TART SAY SOMETHING SO UNDENIABLY CRAZY!" Alice had her hand on my back, patting me softly as people turned to stare at me. "Aww, Rose it'll be okay.. just remember I'm right behind you!" I imagined Emmett whispering sweet nothings into my ear, telling me to calm down. I immediately stopped dead. Or un-dead to speak truthfully.
Quickly, I stormed over to Mallory and tugged on her disgusting blonde hair. "HOW DARE YOU, CRAZY SKANK!" Ha, funny, I remember thinking the same thing not just ten seconds ago. "Not so funny now is it? HOW DARE YOU! I SHOULD BE THE ONE SAYING THAT! YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY, DO YOU? WELL GO CRAWL UNDER A ROCK OR SOMETHING, 'COS YOU'R ABOUT TO GO TO HELL." I smiled and walked away, smiling. I heard her footsteps behind me and turned to face her. As I spoke, I spat in her scowling face. "YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS, BECAUSE AT LEAST I CAN HOLD ONTO A MAN FOR LONGER THAN A DAY!" I slapped her full on in the face, and felt the blood rushing around her cheeks and smiled. "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" Lauren smiled, devilishly. If only she knew what I could do to her..
Biology. Officially the most boring subject of our time, but also my only class with Mallory. Good, now I can finally torment her. She sat down at the desk right next to mine, without noticing. I glanced down at Emmett's usual seat and sighed. I so missed him.. "Hey, Mallory? You dropped something." She looked at the ground and frowned. "What I drop?" She asked, and I subtly replied, "Your dignity." I heard Jessica snigger behind her, but when Lauren looked up she snapped out of it. Then Mr. Garrett looked up and pointed to me, waggling his finger. I stood up, snarling, I'd ruined my chance to piss of Mallory.
After a 'good old telling off' from The Head, I walked to my locker and stuffed my books in. Perfect. Lunchtime. I took my phone from my pocket and begun dialling the number before I could stop myself. "Hello?" I heard his angelic, musical voice and he made me want to fly. "Uh.. Emmett? I was just thinking about you, um, when are you coming back?" My voice cracked on his name. I guess I must have sounded pathetic. "Rosalie, I wasn't expecting your call, actually, I'm driving right now. I'm coming Rosalie. I'll be here soon." He replied calmly. I felt as if my dead heart was alive again, and fluttering up out of my chest. If words could only describe this feeling. "I love you, Emmett." I stated, but he just sighed and hung up. I guess we needed to speak. A lot.
Alice, Jasper, Bella and Edward all followed me as I ran toward the Volvo, I needed to go home and wait for him to find me, I also needed to change into something more.. alluring? "Rose.. he'll only hurt you again!" Edward warned me, "He isn't looking for some big happy reunion, so don't get your hopes up!" I climbed into the Volvo and drove off without a second glance at Edward and Bella, who I'd left behind. Alice and Jasper had both got into the back. "Don't listen to him, he's just angry with Emmett for betraying you. But please, Rose, listen to his words at least. He could be right.." Jasper said. I felt a wave of calmness wash over me and smiled at him. "Thanks, I really needed that." I added, as I pulled into the drive. It had only taken me 6 minutes to get to the house, record time if you ask me. Not even Edward could have beat that, and he was the fastest driver of us all. But what if Jasper and Edward were right? What if I was getting my hopes up for them to be crushed down again. We'll see soon enough..
I heard Emmett's Jeep roaring up outside and immediately ran outside. We both just stood there, staring each others golden eyes. He looked so utterly breathtaking, that if I were human I would of fainted. Even in his simple faded jeans, Gio Goi T-shirt and black sneakers, he looked beautiful. He always could pull anything off. "Emmett." I though aloud. Alice ran from behind me and up to Emmett. She slapped him hard across the face, but hugged him soon after. "Don't do it Emmett.." I heard her whisper to him. Do what? Emmett just shook his head and answered, "I have to, Alice!" Then he walked over to me, took my hands in his and whispered.. "'Til death do us part."
