Hi! I am doing really well on this story! As some of you probably know, I will be going to London on the first of July so, I will try to post some updates but, I'm not promising anything. Enjoy chapter 18!
After I had finished my food,(James watched me like a hawk the whole time that I was eating)James scooped me up in his lap. "Do you want to know how I am alive, Bella"? I decided to humor him. And I really was curious. "Ok". He smiled. "I escaped after Edward and his family came to rescue you. Edward only told you that I was dead because he knew that that was what you wanted to hear. I came by the hospital when you were in there. Edward and his family had gone to hunt. You were asleep. I thought you were so beautiful. I kissed your forehead. I was half hoping to wake you up. I think that I fell in love with you that day in the ballet studio". I just stared at him. But, there was something in his eyes that looked tender. Loving almost. He tightened his grip on me a little bit. "So, why didn't you come back for me? I mean, Edward left me. Victoria wanted to kill me. Why didn't you come then"? "I wanted to make sure that Edward was gone for good. But then, I heard what happened to Laurent and I decided that it wasn't safe. And I didn't really want to help Victoria. I never really liked her". I was silent for a little while. Then, James spoke again. "I'm really sorry for hurting you, Bella. I have a really bad temper. Please forgive me"? I couldn't believe that he was apoligizing after what he'd done. What was bad was that he looked like he was serious. What was worse was that I actually believed him. "I forgive you". He hugged me. "Good. I'll try to control myself from now on. I need to go hunt. Can I trust you to not run away if I leave you alone"? I couldn't believe the next words coming out of my mouth. "Yes". "Good. I'll see you in a little bit". And he left me alone with nothing but my treacherous thoughts to keep me company.
Well, it looks like Bella and James are patching things up. Or are they? Next chapter coming soon! Review!
